Played in the $.25/.50 at PS determined to be a winner. It was a capped buyin of $50 and I played solid poker. I had learned about adjusting to the small blind tables and I was up $35 bucks. I was playing Viper style, coiled and ready to strike whenever I was ahead. I was pulling it off too... Then, it got really good. I was dealt pocket aces on the button. A couple of limpers, so I raise just 2xBB. The BB raises to $4. Wow, he has a good hand. Let's see how good. I raise to $12. He raises to $18. Well, he only had $34 and I realize right now he has Kings. JOY!! I put him all in and sure enough KK vs.AA. A 5-1 dog!!
Flop 9-J-Q (Ironically, he is only a 4 to one dog now, as he picks up 4 outs. Turn is a blank. River is a K. SUCKOUT. I finish the night up $1.10

Ironically, both times I had ACES vs. KINGS in my life, I determined that I was against Kings, got the Kings pot committed and lost BOTH TIMES. All the times I had KK vs. AA I got away from it. A lone exception was a limit game where I called it down for 2 more bets, but I knew that time too. I don't think HE knew here, he just SUCKED OUT!!! GEZ.

Next morning, I am playing Viper style with much less sucess. After about an hour, I am down $3. Then I get a good chance. Hold'em No Limit ($0.10/$0.25)

SUCKOUT. He atleast played this decent. He had J2 in the BB, flopped 2 pair. By the time he got put all in, he only had 1/2 his $5 stack left. But GEZ, what luck. He called without a club (he must have put me on a flush bluff). Hitting a 4 outer AGAIN. I end the morning down $8.
