lol 5kNL is ez

Well, I guess what has become tradition on my birthday has been a shot at higher stakes as a gift to myself. My b-day is tmrw (may10th) I'm going away tommorow to da islands mon, so I did it today.

I started playing regular pokers at $5/10 where I got in QQvsJJ pre and held up in a $2000 pot. It was sweet until I got coolered with KKvsAA in a $2000 pot about 5minutes later.

I continue to play a mix of 3/6-10/20NL and nothing is really happening. I bleed some money in small pots and I'm down about $600. Then I end up sticking my stack in with a pair and straight draw after a failed squueze attempt. Ended up puttin a nice beat on a donkey in a $1200 pot.

So I'm sititng at like -$50 or something and sick of pokers (I played like 6k hands today at $1/$2)

So obv I shortstack the biggest game running - $25/50NL.

Decent birthday so far. Tommorow I'm heading to an island in korea with my g/f for a night or two. just relax and take it easy seeing as there will be NO DOUBLE VPPS this month. wtf stars i hate you.

anyways prop bet update:

costanza is treading water and looking for buyouts. the bet is as good as won. +$2000 for me, plus the $3000 I had in escrow that I've all but forgotten about.

I saw a thread on 2+2 and wandered how the hand played out!

Oh and congrats on all but winning the prop bet. How much is he trying to buy out for?
