Short session, interesting hands

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Some interesting hands from a very short session. I had 40 minutes max to kill, so I thought I’d open a couple tables. This one is a 50bb minimum table that had 3 players on it. I joined and then it filled up really fast. I only had one other similar table going since I […]

Trapping myself

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

Here’s an example of a mistake on my part, leading to me taking a risk, followed by some unfortunate turns of circumstances. I have AA on the button. Early position raise. Standard play, 3 bet, but here I look at the guy’s stats, something like 40/33, so I think here’s an opportunity to trap a […]

Documenting losing

Friday, March 26th, 2010

I need to document this, as vague as it is. I’m in a funk, and I need to look at it so that I have this to refer back to. The downswing started with the “Raise Everything” project at Rush Poker. I expected to be losing money with this but I was doing it for […]

These things happen, I guess. Tried to play 8 tables of $25nl FR on Stars, but had a heck of a hard time finding decent tables. Usually when my intention is to play 8, I get on the waiting list for 10 or 11 tables and open then to watch the action, but this time […]

I fold KK preflop

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

I had to post this one. From 6 max $10 at Party Poker. I don’t know why it’s not showing cards; I’m player 1, with KdKs. Player 2 and Player 6 are new to the table, but I’ve been playing against Player 4 for a while. He’s somewhat decent; he 3 bet me from the […]

Another session of Raise Everything at rush poker. VPIP of 66, PFR of 59.9, minus bb/100 of 75.38. And that’s in spite of stacking one guy who was willing to get it all in on a Qxx 2 tone board when he min 3 bet me with AQ, but I hit my flush on the […]

Session 2; Raise Everything

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

It’s not easy. 100 hands, VPIP 71.1, PRF 66.0, minus 81.2 bb/100. At least the bb/100 is not as bad as last session. C-bet of 73%, with a success of 70.4%. I’m not sure why it’s still this bad. Right now I’m resorting to pretending that I have either AK/AQ or JJ/TT/99, adjusting this so […]

Early results; Raise Every Hand project

Friday, March 19th, 2010

My first attempt at the new project. 213 hands, VPIP of 71.4, PFR of 69, (keeping in mind this is Full Ring RushPoker, so every table has 9 players at it) minus 120 bb/100 loss rate. I think that I can get that down a bit. Or up a bit, depending on how you look […]

New Rush Poker project; Raise Everything

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

‘K, starting a new project. Probably a short one. Playing on Rush Poker. Rules: I have to Open raise every hand from every position Iso-raise any limp or limpers at every opportunity 3-bet in position often Squeeze often from the blinds So my VPIP should be 90% or so (which is why Rush Poker lends […]

We’re back …

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

After a few weeks in Europe (and with limited internet access) I’m still not quite recovered from jet lag yet. For now I’m just playing some $10nl FR Rush Poker as it requires little focus, plus I’m trying to cover as much of the bonus that Tilt offered up as I can. I probably should […]
