Well, I'll post at least a hand a day, that's easy.

This is one from my 5-10 NL 6-max play. It shows basically the most usual mistake of a cash game NL player, that is, playing all your stack with just top pair.

Full Tilt Poker
No Limit Holdem Ring game
Blinds: $5/$10
5 players

Stack sizes:
UTG: $1272.95
Hero: $1188
Button: $1003
SB: $2373
BB: $1354.30

Pre-flop: (5 players) Hero is CO with K♥ K♠
UTG raises to $35, Hero calls, Button calls, SB folds, BB calls.

Flop: K♦ A♥ 9♠ ($145, 4 players)
BB checks, UTG bets $145, Hero calls, 2 folds.

Turn: 4♥ ($435, 2 players)
UTG bets $300, Hero raises all-in $1008, UTG calls.

River: Q♠ ($2451, 1 player + 1 all-in - Main pot: $2451)

Final pot: $2451
UTG showed Qc Ad
Hero showed Kh Ks

Hopefully I keep stacking people in the 5-10 game, so I can play some WSOP events.
