Winning is Easy... (HA)

... when you hit quads every time you're a 4-1 underdog. Decided to snap my streak of pokerless fun with a casual $5 STT. Play was very tight and slow, but at least provided me with a few good laughs. It was good to see that lady luck is back on my side for once, but I forgot to ask her where she was during those $75 Tier Three games.

Can't really think of playing either of these any differently given the very tight-passive feel of the table, just glad I managed to suck out and rub it in a little...

My QQ also managed to hold up against AKo, which took play down to 3-handed with yours truly as the big stack. And earlier on my AJs top-two pair fended off a KQ inside straight draw to knock the first player out. It was nice to have everything go my way for once, and hopefully this will continue into April.

Going to spend the rest of March doing a little work on
ZipRake and trying to catch up on sleep before another busy work week.
