uFR Challenge III: Day 4 + 5

Day 4. I unfortunately only managed to put in 500 hands yesterday but the games were super fishy and I was up a quick 2 buyins before quitting for the day. It should be July 4th every Saturday of the year.

Day 5. Got off to a slow start today and finished the first session down a buyin after spewing my last hand. I was probably a little tilty at breaking even for 1200 hands with flopping absolutely nothing worth valuebetting. I did a little session review and picked out the biggest fish and the biggest pots I'd seen today and made notes on which ones were stacking off super light.

Then I fired up some more tables and got into some good spots where 2 or 3 regs were constantly 3betting me and I recognized the situation as a good squeeze spot for them and 4bet light successfully a number of times and played back at the right flops and came out ahead in the 3bet/4bet light game.

My favorite hand for this month so far. I loled when I saw the nitty SB fire $1 into $1.50 and thought lol he has Asx. Calling is pretty much a 0EV play since I'm about 25:1 to hit and that's 1/2 his stack, plus I have to have his hand exactly right and I don't think my straight draw outs are good since I'm either crushed or don't get paid off anyways - but hitting straight flushes for stacks is so much fun so I have to call. Fortunately the fish on my left came along for a couple bets to add some value.
