Not much to add. Still playing Rush Poker, still playing 10nl, still watching Inuyasha at the same time. By the time I get through all the videos it’ll be time for us to head out of town where I’ll have limited internet access. I could have collected my graph but now I’m at a different […]

Betting draws, against betting draws

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

Here’s a hand that I enjoyed. This is still Rush Poker, $10nl, played while watching more Inuyasha that I’ve been hooked on lately. 87s, a little loose from this far out but I like this range of non-gapped suited connectors. I open, get called. Flop is not great; I have a gutter but there’s a […]

Playing a Deuces Cracked instructor

Saturday, February 13th, 2010

Out of circumstance, I’m back at 10nl Rush Poker again. It’s just so convenient for someone like me that has a hard time clearing time to play, and I’ve been running bad at 25nl for long enough that it’s easier to play 10nl. One interesting hand the other night. Player raises, and I recognize him […]

3.40 Sit and Go

Friday, February 12th, 2010

Still running badly at Rush Poker so I tried to return to my Rampage with 4 tables of 25nl at Stars, and ran just as badly there. Card dead, the hands I do decide to play miss the flop so I try to compensate by generating action with weaker hands, and get played back at. […]

Well, this was a nice surprise. I’m about to give up on Rush Poker as I’ve been running poorly again, running into another TT set, and then in one session QQ runs into AA twice and then AK in the small blind runs into AA in the big blind. I still made two targets. One […]

Well, some of the rush has worn off Rush Poker, at least for me. But it’s still all that I’m playing these days, mainly because of the convenience factor. I can play just one table of $25nl FR without getting bored, while not being challenged enough that I can still watch television with the family […]

Trying to get off the Rush Poker train

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Trying to keep myself from playing Rush Poker these past few days, since I noticed some “video game” aggression creeping into my emotional playing base. Still, played some $25nl, got up some, lost it plus probably an extra half buyin. Yesterday same story; got up some when I raised KJ from the CO, button calls, […]
