Was running well in the $109 again until i got caught big time when i re-reraised with AJ on a K94 board putting the caller on KQ or KJ and knowing he could fold as i was representing a bigger K or even trips. I knew my aggression would get caught out eventually but he did admit he was close to folding. Was still left with 1k in chips and lost a 2500 pot a few hands later 9,10 vs AJ (and another guy folded AK the same hand blocking some of the AJ).

At the same time i had a £33 sixpac going and it was nice to win it on a classic free cards situation with a huge bet at the end to make the guy think i didnt have the king, see below.

That covers the entrance fee to the $109 and more anyway :))

Also played 2 x 6 player 2,4$ NL tables on the tribeca network for a few hours to see how bad they were. They were pretty much as expected and at the end i was another $200 up. The downside to this is no rakeback but i will try some others in the near future that i can get rakeback on. I think Full Tilt is next on the list once i bother to set up an account with rakeback.
