Early Day 2 - $203.69

After some two-tabling .05/.10 NLHE for about 100 hands, I grinded up a bit and am now (somewhat) squarely in the win column. An interesting hand:

I think this is indicative of a lot of the play you find down here in .10NL...after all, we're only talking about a couple of bucks, right? Keeeeeep firing with that A6os. With AQ, I'm not considering calling $1.70 a hero call at this level. But I was a bit surprised he'd fire that much on the river. Am I supposed to think he backdoored a flush? At any rate, I need to be aware of this type of sloppy play down here...if I hope to keep moving up. I'm still thinking small/medium MTT scores will be the eventual key to making progress, but overall I am happy with where I am at.
