This Month's RTR Freeroll

I was barely treading water at my table. None of my big hands were getting any action.

I finally got the guy on my right to quit raising my blind all the damn time.

This time he completes the small blind.

We got it all in on flop.

The cash tables were equally nasty to me. I raised UTG with KK and got reraised. I flat called when I should have reraised or pushed.

I didn't go broke but I did lose a big chunk of my stack. I managed to get some of it back when I hit middle set versus bottom set. I'm still trying to claw my way back.

Bummer! It is so hard to read how players are in the freerolls. Some are uber-aggressive shoving with nothing, and others are playing normal TAG style.

Better luck next month!
