Haven’t posted much in the daily, mostly because my poker volume is way down. September mostly consisted of playing 2 tables a day for 15 minutes at Tilt to complete the Take 2 promo. I successfully managed to do that, losing a net of $13 in the process as a result of the 55 that […]

It’s tough getting ahead. Still mini-sessioning Tilt trying to complete the promotion, and since I’m not getting much other time top play poker, that’s almost all of my playing. I got stacked a week or more ago when my KK was open limp/called for a 8x preflop raise after I 3 bet a minraiser in […]

Here’s an interesting hand from my mini-sessions at Tilt chasing their promo. Very first hand at the table, so no reads at all.

Not doing well for a daily grind blog, since it’s been a while since updating. But I haven’t played much poker at all, other than keeping up with the Full Tilt promotion. I’ve finished 15 days = $25, so 10 more to make the full $50. Sessions have only been 15-20 minutes and my FTPs […]

Sigh. Working on the Full Tilt promotion again, second hand at one of the tables. Open limped, min raised, called, I raise KK and get two callers. Low two tone flop. I bet, and get shoved over. Could be a set, two pair, paired ten, flush draw, or combo pair/draw, so I call. So I […]

Not much to report. Only played two session for the Tilt promotion, covering two days against Tilt’s server time. Web based points tracker was veeerryy slow to update with the first session. Fortunately I had kept a screen shot of my cashier when I sat down so I knew that I was up around 4 […]

A shortish session while waiting for the car to be returned. Only 262 hands, a less nitty 15/9 running 74bb/100 (!) with a better W$SD of 63.6%. Up almost 2 buyins. Sucked out on a setmine 33 that hit on a J73 two tone flop with my AA that filled on the river, but he’s […]

Day 6 of Tilt’s promotion complete. The web update seems slower and slower, but it would make sense that it would be somewhat delayed as that keeps cheap nits like me playing for another orbit or so making sure that I clear the minimum.So I keep quiting as soon as the update says that I’m […]

Successfully completed 5 days for $5 of Take 2 bonus at Tilt, plus ITMed a $5.50 51 runner private tourney for $30 or so. But decided to do some actual grinding today so I went to Stars and opened 8x10nl. 369 hands; according to the online poker fallacy I lost $18.45, but unfortunately for that […]

Not much to report; played 10 mins of 25nl to earn 1.57 FTPs, or something like that. I’ve now gone from 8 the first day to 4 the second. Now I’ve got it down to just enough. I don’t know if the promotion makes it more or less worthwhile to play at Tilt though. I […]

So yesterday I played about 10 minutes of poker. Just enough on Tilt on two tables of 25nl FR to earn an FTP for the September promotion. I haven’t played cash there a lot, but even to me it seems like there are more short stackers than usual; people with small bankrolls trying to get […]
