Session One: 204

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

First session. I’ve seen this guy at $100nl back when I was taking a one buyin shot. Back then I was only playing one table at a time and watching and checking each player pretty carefully. He’s showing as 36/16/20 over just a few hands. I take a risk, hoping to keep the fish in […]

New project?

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Projects work well for me. That’s something that I’ve known for a long time. The most recent one was to collect a $25 redeposit bonus on Stars. Before that the project was to earn enough FTP points for one week of CardRunners. Both were targets that I might be able achieve in two weeks of […]

Just wanted to muck around last night. Found one $50nl table that looked promising but I trapped myself first hand not raising AT after the button limped and the SB completed. Flop came Ace high and I check/called, turn is a 5 and check/called, river is a brick and I check/called, losing to his 55 […]

Sometimes, it’s a struggle

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Sometimes, it’s a struggle. Early Sunday evening, I decided that I want to play some poker. I sign up for a $2.20 180 turbo that are very easy to play; normally I don’t pay any attention until the blinds get to 50/100 or so. Then I realize that I have just over 210 FPPs so […]

Running badly, then down $ 0.03

Saturday, March 26th, 2011

PokerStars was running a special for their umpteeth billion hand, so instead of playing $50 or $100nl I opted to take a run at playing 10 tables of $25nl FR so that I’m on more tables at the same time. I still needed to finish my redeposit bonus as well so I though that this […]

Update, to update. I wanted to make a $200 redeposit on Stars to make a $50 bonus (1,000 VPPs in 30 days) available. But once again I couldn’t get a credit card to work so I tried Echecks. It worked, but I could only deposit $100 with my first use of Echecks so I end […]

Back to the rings

Monday, March 7th, 2011

After a few sessions at $25nl Rush I’m now trying to keep myself away. There was a freeroll that I decided that I wanted to make myself eligible for so I needed 200 FTPs which only required a few sessions to cover and now I’m trying to wean myself again. I did manage to finally […]

This is what happens when you run good. $25nl FR, Rush Poker. One of the first hands, opponent is 16/3, 5.0/36% aggression over 36 hands. His range as a loose passive in the blind is probably wide and he has some postflop aggression. My plan is two streets of value with an overpair since he’s […]
