The match started well, people get knocked out quite fast. Until when there were 5 people left the match was quite a drag. I could have knocked out one guy after drawing the nut flush on the river, but I didnt bet his whole stack. I bet two times pot size on river so to leave him 400 chips so that someone else could knock him out for the bounty, stupid.
Until when there were 3 of us left, there was a lady (i'm not sure if its really one but her nick sounded like it) who "kicked me in the nuts". Consecutively two hands went like this against her:
I held JJ.
Raised pre-lop 2 bb.
Flop - 9TJ
I didnt bet a lot becuz it seems dangerous.
Turn - K
I bet one big blind again and she called.
River - 7
She called my two bb bet again.
Naturally, she turned over a QK for a straight, on flop.
I held TT
I raised another pre-flop with 2 bb (been raising wide range of hands for 2 bb)
Flop - T39
I flopped the nuts again, and bet on it. Two of them called.
Turn - 8
She checked, despite hitting her straight draw, I bet and they called.
River - 6
She bets, we called, and she turn over QJ and groped us by below.
During heads-up, I think both of us can't wait to tear one another apart after such a draggy session, when three players left (me, the lady and another opponent). The "another opponent" is the one left who heads-up with me. Lost my last pot on 77 vs 99 all-in pre-flop.
And after the session, as always, I find myself running to the toilet. I managed to only knock out one guy for a bounty though.
School will be resuming next week, my last week end for enjoyment. I am probably putting trading and poker aside even more for this four months ahead to complete my last semester of school smoothly.
I considered leaving my current job so that I can focus on my last semester of school and then have a "trial" of doing trading/poker full-time for the next four months. But how many of us dare to leave a "stable" job so that they can have "unstable" income? Hardly anyone I know does, let alone the fact that I haven't had record of consistent profits in either field.
If I plan to move on from my current workplace, then its time to plan which step to go before landing my foot blindly. Its time to find a field or industry for a career soon. I need to know what I wanttttttttttt........... Passion vs Money?????
