A 429 hand session today, after a short 4 tabling session yesterday. I didn’t check yesterday’s stats before but 14/12 and 14 bb/100 over 172 hands, and 12/9 winning 17.8 bb/100 today. I’m surprised by the win rate in both days. In both cases I thought I might even be running slightly negative but apparently […]

First big down session. 587 hands of 25nl, anywhere from 9 to 5 tables, running 13.6/9.8, minus EV of $26 and net of minus $27. W$SD of 41.7. The net result would have been worse if not for a loose player paying me off on a AA6 two tone flop with his A2 against my […]

In 432 hands I flopped AA 5 times, so it’s got to be an up session. This hand was good for the bankroll. I was watching a coaching video today and the coach was talking about having KK and how that hand is an Ace magnet. Here’s an example of it. Can’t do much when […]

Finally played a session today, for the first time in 4 days. And a tough one, if only for the bad tables that filled up with shortstackers. Ran slightly lower than my EV for once but still 10 bb/100. 15.2/8.7, 464 hands or so. I couldn’t find good tables so I ended up only playing […]

480 hands of 8, then 7 x 25nl. 12.7/8.2. On one table apparently I was running 4/1 and hadn’t noticed. 🙂 Ran LAGgier on a couple of other tables where I was getting cards to even it out, I guess. A couple of hands. First one you could say I shouldn’t stack off with TPTK. […]

Installing a 3rd WordPress blog sharing the same database

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

Gaah, I tried to create a 3rd blog on my domain that shared the same database as this one and the main one. I thought it was working okay, but later this blog and the new one got crossed; trying to log in fresh to either one would take me to the other one. After […]

Only 367 hands of 8 x 25nl for two reasons. One, I looked at my Pokerstars hand totals and forgot that I had played some $10nl and $2nl earlier trying to fix my HUD, and 2) one $25 table shrank down so I had to wait to get on another table. Still, 12.4/9.7, 33.41 bb/100. […]

464 hands of 8 x 25nl. Didn’t really feel like playing, but the television was being used so I couldn’t finish my WII Fit session. 🙂 EV was flat, only winning at 7.7 bb/100 as a result. And more nittiness; 10.5/7.0, and my preflop positional awareness is extreme to the point of being awful; 16.29! […]

Not much poker time available these days, but I realized that I should note my Party Poker freeroll attempts. I’m sometimes (though not always, and I don’t know why) eligible for a private freeroll, even though in theory I shouldn’t be because there was a deposit date requirement back in the spring, long before I […]

One thing that I want to note in here, so I’m putting it in a separate entry so that it stands out, is how tight I’ve become OOP. This is for full ring mind you, but I’m now open folding AQ and lower from the first three positions as well as sometimes 88 and down.This […]

450 hands of 8 or 7 x 25nl. What concerns me a bit is how physically tense I was. I tried holding my breath just to stop the lung/diaphragm tension that was to the point of making my breathing tight and trembly and the rest of my body had various tension symptoms as well. Maybe […]

Just to note that the check from PokerStars arrived yesterday; a week after making the request. Unfortunately, that’s all the poker new for the past few days. Just not getting time to play. Looking back at the last two entries I’m reminded that I stopped grinding full ring a while back. I had switched to […]

8 x 25nl, 478 hands, still a nit at 11.2/7.6. Got 3 bet often on one table with so-so raising hands and ended up folding them. Had plans to open my 4 betting range but then didn’t come up with a situation before I decided to end the session. Ran 38.24 bb/100 in spite of […]

432 hands playing between 5 and 7 tables of 25nl. Still nitting it up at 12.7/9 but W$SD of 61.5, and a minus EV of 12.48? Netting 6.5bb/100 after all that. I let AQs draw out on me when he check-raised a low rainbow flop. Flush draw on the turn but I figured no real […]

I requested a cash out from PokerStars last night, so I thought I’d post this to track how long it takes to arrive. The last one didn’t take too long. This will cut my bankroll there in half but that’s fine. I can play “under-rolled” as I’ll have the money available to re-deposit if I […]

670 hands on 10 tables of $10, still trying to work myself back into the groove of multitabling. But I played like a nit; 11/6, but W$SD of 47.6 and 29bb/100. Most of my big monies came from various fish; I limp behind with a suited Ace, flop the nut flush and the fish overbets […]
