Not much playing time lately, which means mostly Rush Poker. Still on the first part of the project of getting $100 at $10nl. After 4 sessions: 20.39 bb/100 over 1947 hands = $39.69 VPIP 18.2, PFR 14.0; I didn’t realize I was playing so LAGgy even that loose my PfPA is 7.04, meaning I’m raising […]

Back to some Rush Poker, again?

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

I still haven’t kicked the Rush (crack) Poker habit. It got re-started when I did a few sessions trying to record a video to demonstrate some poker basics. I used Rush Poker because of it’s simple “in a vacuum” with no reads situation. The convenience of not having to wait on tables, the simplicity of […]

Haven’t played a lot lately but still hanging on with the 3-5 tables of $25nl combined with 1 table of $100nl. It certainly makes finding a table at $100nl much easier as now I’m only looking for one likely table. Sometimes just finding one is not all that easy. With the $25nl tables I don’t […]

This guy has been sucking out on people and betting them off all night. He’s got stats of 58/17, with a 3 bet % of 18 and aggression of 7.8, so I figure KQ is good enough to 4 bet him. I get it in good, but … He’s another one of those people that […]

I’ve started to become tired of the slow pace of playing 2-3 tables of $100nl and I don’t know if my game there is improving. Stats to date: 2,350 hands -$36.50, so I still haven’t lost my $100 or $200  “stake” but I have a +EV of $83.38. Largely this is still the one hand […]

I used to put this kind of post in the main blog but the main blog seems to be gravitating toward very instructional or informative topics and away from the uncertain or exploratory type of posts. I’ve been idly wondering lately why how I’m running at poker affects my everyday confidence and perspective and attitude. […]

Finally managed to play one session last night. One odd player, 23/0 two to my left kept calling me, calling flops, then betting almost every turn and river, so I let him bet. Board hits the range for someone calling my preflop raise but because he bet most turns and rivers I keep check/calling him. […]

Posting, just to post

Monday, May 10th, 2010

Haven’t posted for almost a week, partly because I haven’t played much. I did manage to take my stake for $100nl FR down to -$58 or so a while back, 5 bet shoving my AK from the SB over an iso-raise from the button against two fish in mid position who limped. I still think […]

Not much to report, but I should at least keep tracking things. Two more sessions of 2 tables, full buyin at $100nl FR. Up $10, then another $8 making my bb/100 something like 1.2 or 1.4 over 1,200 hands or so. One of the interesting things is the very clear delineation between multi-tabling regs and […]

This is an example of how someone playing unusually can really mess you up. Preflop raiser is 52/37, regularly making min-raises preflop. And I mean regular. If he’s in late position with two limpers already in (which happened at this table as there was also a loose/weak player opposite him) he’ll still min raise. So […]
