My first Gold Card - Qs

My first Gold Card in my first 1hr session on Sunday on RedStar poker is Q of spades. That's nice :) I've already played on Cake network, won 14 Gold Cards but won mostly 2's and 3's with my biggest card beeing a 9. Q of spades is ninth most valuable card and I guess it's worth ~$50. I just hope I will get the opportunity to redeem it for cash in their daily lottery.

I've run out of Gold Card luck in my second session. I've won almost worthless 2d. So far, I've cleared first $10 of bonus, earned ~$8.5 in rakeback, 1 Gold Chip and 2 Gold Cards. Finished down $0.60 but I didn't play good and had some bad luck. I still can't control myself at the tables but I'm working on it.

Here is my most BB's winning hand from today session. Don't you love when you flop nuts and there's 3 clueless players with you in the hand! I wonder if I could have won more with this hand:

ps. you're not allowed to use PokerTracker or HUD while playing on Cake poker network but you can find a hand history converter which can convert Cake hh's into a PokerStars hh format so you can import them in PT database. you also need to replace "," with "." in blind amounts otherwise PT can't recognize commas and will import, for example, $0,25 as a $25 so you will get some weird results
