East Coast Trip Report

I went home to Connecticut for the holidays with a quick stopoff at Atlantic city with my Mom and my Fianace. They dont play poker but I got in a few $65 tourneys at Showboat and the Taj. I dont have much to write as I was card dead and went out a few hours in all tourneys. I finished 40/90 25/50 and 25/55  going out AIPF with my AQ vs AA, My KK vs 99 and my JJ vs A9. Had a small losing session at $1/$2  at Showboat before breakfast then went to Borgotta and made it back plus a buy in before dinner.

Drove back to CT that night and celibrated Christmas with my family. The next day I took my Grandparents to Mohegan Sun. I playued $1/2 for about an hour lost half my stack and decided to play some $4/$8 Omah H/L but the game was 4 handed and real tight so I lost about $50 and decided to play a SNG. I got it down to 4 handed and then shipped it with JJ vs Ah3h and he rivered a flush. I decided to find my grandparents and call it a night.

The Last night I was in town (News Year Eve) I went to Foxwoods to grind out some $1/$2. I went busto on top 2 vs a flopped flush and I had to rebuy. I ran my rebuy up and cashed out up $150 for the night.

All and all I was down about $300 for the trip not the best turnout but I played a lot of cards at a lot of casinos.


Foxwoods Lock In

So it is my last night in CT, I have a 10am flight in Providence and my mom works 9pm-5am at Foxwoods. So instead of her driving an hour home then 2 hours back in the morning I decide to go to work with her the go to the airport when she gets off. I walk around the poker room for a while deciding what to play.

I am usually good at SNG’s and they only run till 10pm so i decide to play in a $100+$20 before they shut them down for the night. I get started and fold every hand in the first 15 min level, in the second level i limp once with QsTs in LP  after a few limps and the BB goes all in for 1100 so I fold. I am down to around 1700 feom the starting stack of 2000 and we have lost 1 player. one player limps in EP i get JJ in MP and make it 400 and get 4 callers including the button who looks like he wanted to reraise me PF. the flop is 9h6h3s I bet 700 and I am called by the button who seams pained ove the call. the turn is 7s putting 2 flush draws on the board. I act 1st and push my last 700 in and he thinks for a while and calls. He shows KK and I lose another SNG in level 2.

I decide I have a lot of time to kill so I walk the casino replaying that hand and I wanted to check out the new MGM tower on the otherside of the Foxwoods complex. After my journey I decide I want to play some limit holdem and sign up for 4/8 I also add my name to the 4/8 Omaha h/l interest list. before I can get a LHE seat they call the Omaha game. I sit with $180 and I am a little nervous because I have never played Omaha in a casino just a few home games. I play a few too many hands early get low then i get involved in a few big pots that I scoop or split. The game also had a Half kill if the pots were over $80 and scooped but it was rare in this game. I end up ahead even though i ran into Quads near the end for a big pot and I tried to raise with AAQQ DS and missed the flop compleatly. I cashed out $250 when the game got 4 handed and broke. Not bad for my first live Omaha H/L session.

My mom got off work at 5am went to Mohegan Sun for Breakfast and watched my mom play a few slots before heading to the Airport.
