With all the hold em I’ve been playing, I kinda got a bit burned out on it. Yeah, yeah. I know I play a minuscule amount compared to a lot, but it still. Anyway. I’ve been playing other games like plo8 and horse. Normally I hate limit games, but horse if fun enough for me to stomach the limit structure.

I’ve been having fun with it and some of the games have been pretty good too. Unfortunately, since Cake doesn’t run stud variants, I have been playing the games on other networks which I’m sure has hurt my rake race. I will be getting back to there to play some more though.

This isn’t a huge hand, and I’m not totally sure I played it just right, but it’s always nice to scoop a pot when you flop the nut/nuts. I thought about 3 betting preflop, but it was my 3rd hand on the table. I also thought about just calling the flop and raising the turn for the bigger bets with my monster.
