I am at Turning Stone Casino for a few days. I had a short but good session of 200NLH yesterday. I was surprised that there were only 2/4 LHE or 200NLH games going. I usually come out here during tournament weeks and there are plenty of bigger game to play but not this week
The game was surprisingly tight but I had some fun for the last 2 hours when I got a big fish on my right and iso-raised him a ton. The tight table let me get away with this the entire time. I am not sure they even notice what I was doing. Only one guy "adjusted" by moving to my right between me and the fish but once he got that seat he just kept folding.
There was one strange hand. I iso-raised one tight limper and the fish. I bet the flop and turn HU against the tight guy on a A7833 board. I took a little extra time to check behind on the river. As soon as I checked he instant mucks. I said something like - wow I checked, I didn't bet. He said I know I was no good. The dealer pushes me the pot and I don't show my cards. I asked the guy what he had. He told me he had T9s for OESD on flop and FD on the turn. I told him "man was I in trouble I had 67 and I didn't bet the river because I thought he was trapping me with AJ+"
Now the table spends the next 5 minutes debating weather i had 67 or not. They didn't all believe me but after that hand and my aggressive play in general I knew it was time to switch gears and wait for a real hand to get paid off with. I tightened up for the last 30 minutes or so but I didn't pickup any hands. I quit because I was getting really tired. This is an area of my game that I have made great strides in - I almost always quit good these days even when the game is still good
