MOST RECENT

#aboutlastnight I finally came out of my #downswing from my previous sessions over the last week and finally found some #rungood last night. It was crazy as this session was way too long, roughly 6-hours. I almost got felted at one point as I was down to about $80 and spun it back up to about $200 in order to grind more comfortably now. Poker is just not easy anymore! You really have to be ready to grind long hours; unfortunately, after 5-hours I’m done. I just can’t handle the long grind. Well, #handoftheday is where I flopped an open-ended straight-flush draw with 5♣️4♣️ on this board: 7♣️6♣️6♦️; the turn was a 2♥️ and river was 8♣️. I just wish there were two other ppl possibly drawing or chasing a nut flush in this one. It’d have been a sweeter payday. This was the first time I’ve ever hit a #Str8Flush playing this game. It sure was a great feeling; however, there was no high hand payout for it as @mgmnationalharbor only had their lucky seat promotion available only...😟 #MGMPOKER #straightflush

[Latergram: March 10th, 2018] I swear these 1/3 NLH sessions @mgmnationalharbor were so crazy I can’t even describe it. You don’t need to play higher stakes or move up to the 2/5 games because almost everyone had about a $800+ Stack, it felt more like everyone was sitting with about close to a 1K Stack which seemed impossible when the cap is only $500. However, I saw my moment and played my game with a $200 starting stack and made the most out of it. There were ton of bluffers and crazy preflop raises with total rags; I love it when they try this and i pick it off. Sometimes I really hate driving the extra distance all the way to MGM when MDLive is so much closer, but it’s seems way more lucrative for the additional 20min drive. My last two sessions in a row at this place were amazing! I hope it continues! Good luck to everyone else on that #pokergrind Tomorrow is @marylandlive Triple Stack and I just might go give it another shot tomorrow. #psychologicalwarfare

#Latergram [March 7th, 2018]
Well, two weeks in a row I fired a bullet @marylandlive Wednesday’s Triple Stack 15K Guranteed poker tournament; this one has an extra WPT $1500 ticket added to first place for their main event coming up during March 23rd-26th. Basically, if you could just ship this one you automatically get a seat into their WPT Deepstack main event #13, where you could play for $300,000 guaranteed. There’s one more chance at this next week and I just might give it one more shot after firing and missing two weeks in a row. Although I lost two consecutive weeks back-to-back, I don’t feel to give up just yet. Both times, I ran pretty good and was able to beat out close to 200 entrants each time, but I was unable to cash in either tourney. It sure would be nice to cash in this tournament one time; better yet, finish 1st place to play for that 300K. I know playing these tourneys are the biggest ”Craps Shoot Ever,” but I’ve been successful in the pass when these tourneys had about 100 entrants (Much smaller stakes tho!), but never played with so many entrants until two weeks ago! I felt very confident and satisfied with my play and I feel I could do it. I wish I could just place 1st this year for one of these tournaments. #pokergoals

#FlashbackFriday [June 9th, 2017]#fbf
Flashback to that Friday down in Mississippi that had some amazing action @beaurivage_official I really enjoyed playing poker in the Deep South where you could straddle from any position. It definitely felt like the Vegas of the South. I might need to plan another trip back to this beautiful resort soon. One thing I didn’t realize while I was playing in this cool & unique poker room that it was a former BBQ restaurant turnt poker room. Thanks to @yayandrew for that amazing vlog on this beautiful place. Please go follow him as he is the best vlogger introducing his style of poker play to the world and without a doubt makes the best videos on YouTube! Congrats to him on winning two awards from the America Poker Awards 4-days ago! He truly deserves it.

#Nationalharbormd
I had a great sessions yesterday @mgmnationalharbor where I was in for $160 and out for $485. This game could be very difficult at times to leave profitable due to the fact once you build a great stack you don’t wanna leave; you think you could keep running it up and up. However, that doesn’t happen too often, usually you’ll end up punting your whole stack by playing too many hands. This is a game where good hands always have the possibility of losing and playing perfect poker may still cause you too lose as well. The swings in poker is enough to drive a sane person crazy. You have to be able to keep a positive mindset as a positive attitude will yield positive results, but also utilize common sense and know when to leave with a profit. My mistakes that I’ve learned from is not leaving when I’m up or when tiredness and fatigue kicks in. You cannot play this game or think straight when your not 100% focus. In my opinion, the hardest thing to accomplish is leaving a casino with a profit, sometimes leaving even in my book is considered a WIN!!! So take it. It’s best to focus only on one game and don’t dgen too much on Slots, Craps, Roulette, etc. My biggest mistake...lol #MGMPoker #Gamblingconfessions

#AboutLastNight “Again!!”
Another crazy grind last night, but no success!! Unfortunately, I was in for $140 and out for $0. I was able to run it up to a stack about $220 for the highest point all night but eventually I’d punt this stack and book a solid loss. The most aggravating #handofthenight was none other than flopping the stone cold nuts with A♦️K♦️ on the button with a board of Q♦️4♦️5♦️, talk about a sweetheart of a flop when holding Big Slick suited too! I tried my best to slow play it and extract the most from villain who leads off with a $20 bet on the flop. I flat and 4th street was 4♥️ which made me cautious as the board was now paired. However, villain only bets $20 again which made me think he had a smaller flush as I knew I had the highest flush possible; however, it was difficult for me to understand my opponents range on this particular hand. Finally, the river is a 9♥️ and villain leads with only a $15 bet on fifth street which got me thinking he only has a flush bcuz if he had the boat he would’ve bet more aggressively! So I raise it up to about $45 thinking I had the best possibly hand and he flat calls. I was expecting a re-raise if he had boated up and then I’m not sure if I’d have fold or not but I’d have gotten the information I needed there. Believe it or not? Villain had flopped two pairs with 4♣️5♥️ and slow-rolled me very nicely! I hate to admit defeat, but it happened and I took the bait and walked right into the so-called trap that I thought I was setting. Nothing is worst than flopping the nuts and losing it on 4th street thinking you still got it. Especially, when you think your the one that is setting the trap but it’s the other way around...Ugh!!! This game is so brutal and painful at times. I think I need to automatically preflop muck “Big Slick,” from now on. #MarylandLivePoker

#AboutLastNight [Feb. 21st, 2018]
Ok guys, I fired one bullet @marylandlive poker tournament last night and had a pretty nice run until I busted out in 76th place from 280 entrants for their $120 Triple Stack (15K Guaranteed with an extra $1,500 WPT ticket for 1st place), which was a very heartbreaking loss after building up such a nice stack to lose it on a coin flip with [K♥️J♥️] VS [K♦️Q♠️ ] for my last 6 BB’s left. Unfortunately, I had no choice but to get it all-in as I was super short stacked on a table that had way to many big stacks for me to survive. Although I lost this tourney, I had a lot of fun playing this one and did very well on one bullet. Besides that, the option for me to rebuy was over as I busted out in level 14. For some reason, I envisioned myself at the final table and felt like I was going to do very well and run deep last night; however, reality kicked in...lol I was ready to cash in this one but fell short again... #nevergiveup

#Latergram [Feb. 13th, 2018]
Last week Tuesday I almost missed the entry into this small stakes tournament @ballysac where I brought in two minutes before the cut off time. I was the last entrant at number 27. Maybe buying in last minute is some type of good luck, because I ran like 🔥fire in this one and probably could’ve finished in 1st place if I didn’t agree on a 6-way chop! I had some great hands in this one where I flopped a set of aces and turned quads for a quick double up. I finished this one technically in third-place making this my 5th tournament I’ve ever cashed within the past two-years. Although I haven’t played too many tourneys and this one only had 27-entrants, I still played very well and placed 3rd in chips before agreeing to chop it up between the final 6-players at the final table. I didn’t mind at all because it was a good group of guys and we all had the competitive nature to ship this one. I played a total of three tournaments on this trip and cashed in 1 out of 3; I have never ever finished as a 1st place champion yet, but that might be one of my goals for 2018. #BallysAtlanticCity

#fridaynightgrind A fun session last night as soon as I sat down I was able to get some quick double ups and fast wins by flopping a nut flush and connecting with pocket 3’s on another hand to run it up to roughly $375 from starting stack of $120. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to book a solid profit last night as I ended up punting most of my stack chasing that stupid high hand @marylandlive Poker is game of too many swings and the more hands you play, the more hands you keep chasing, it will eventually cost you $$$$!!!! All in all, I had a great time playing last night and might take a little break for awhile as I’ve been grinding nonstop this whole week from Atlantic City to right here in my hometown of Maryland. Good luck to all of the poker grinders out there and I hope y’all rungood and book that “W.” #P♦️O♠️K♥️E♣️R‼️

Yesterday I won some nice pots with the AJ @ballysac and @borgataac and each time I got action on it. A special thank you to @actionjunkiepoker for that repost while I was on my grind, truly appreciate the love back!! #acejack #actionjunkiepoker #atlanticcity #AJsuited

#PokerSessions2017 #mypokersessions #recap
This is a detail list of all the different casinos I played poker at last year and the number next to it is how many sessions at each casino. It’s pretty clear and obvious where I like to grind which is @marylandlive with a total of 12+ sessions during 2017 for an outstanding net profits of $1,708. To bad I can’t say the same for one of my favorite casinos in Atlantic City @borgataac where a total of 6-sessions resulted in being in stuckville for ($564) for 2017. The two random outliers where I hardly ever play which where @horseshoebmore and @doverdowns which resulted in over $1,110 in net profits with only two sessions; this was truly the highlight of my year for playing poker and running super good on the felt each time. All in all, 2017 was a successful year playing poker, I just hope that 2018 is much better! I realize there needs to be a correction to my previous post of 2017 total net profit which was incorrect because I accidentally had added my two losing sessions for 2018 that I played in January; due to those totals, my true net profit for 2017 was $2,348 and not $2,039. So below is a corrected version of all sessions for 2017:

As a result, my total profits are $3,372 - $1,024 = $2,348 for 2017. #Notbad #pokerbankrolltracker

This is a recap of all my #pokersessions from 2017. My best session was definitely near the end of the year @horseshoebmore where I brought in for $225 and cashed out for $825. Just swipe left to checkout the next four photos which exemplify each session throughout various times during the year. I started my poker tracking on 02/15/2017 until now. My biggest losses are definitely playing tourneys. Although tourneys are bigger risk, the high-reward risk is worth it if you could cash or finish in the top 5. [Swipe ⬅️left to view results]

Spent a good amount of time the past two weeks sitting at this table, finishing my book. It’s done. Look for it early June. Pre-order info is in my bio.

#mondaymotivation Well, to those of you who know me already understand my obsession and affinity for poker! With that said, last year for 2017 is when I truly grinded the most sessions in my life. I’ve never played so much poker like I did for 2017. I tracked all of my poker sessions from last year just to see how well I did. To my surprise, I did very good with my variance which netted me positive net profits. This includes all of my poker sessions and tournaments I played last year which were a total of 35 sessions including my combine cash game (CG) and MTT for net profits of $2,039. The variance kicked my ass during certain months, but I bounced back and made up for it during other months. Besides that, I played at many different casinos last year throughout various different states from Mississippi, Minnesota, West Virginia, New Jersey, and of course the best state of all, Maryland!!! I really encourage all poker players to track your sessions as it will give you a better perspective on your complete progress. I utilize the app “Poker Bankroll Tracker,” which in my opinion is the best. Go download it!
