Decided that tonight was the night i would play my first NL50 hands in what is probably close to a year now. Have to say i was pretty excited as i opened my first few tables, this has been a while coming now.

Managed to play about 500 hands before TiltBreaker kicked in, again i have this set pretty low at $70 from peak due to my tilt problems, ended the session down $5 which i guess im pleased with but i probably ran looser than i should have shot taking and as a result got my self in some tricky spots that i wasnt quite sure of. I was quite worried that the money might scare me as thats what originally stopped me moving up 2 years ago and its a while now since ive played near this level but it really didnt phase me, its still poker right and i just tried to keep to my normal game.

Anyway heres a couple of the biggest hands i played where i got a little concerned about my play:-

Villain is 20/15 after 20 hands. Is his range just flushes?
