Time to grind up a roll again?

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

Today being a holiday I thought I’d finally give the ring games a go since I can play earlier and there might be more action with European players on. So I start up Stars, find that there are a few high VPIP $50 tables and I try to get on four. And then I’m caught […]

Black Friday aftermath

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

I don’t know where I’m going from here. In reality I’m not affected to a great degree. I’m not in the US so I can still play on both Stars and Tilt. I’ve even requested a cashout of most of my Stars account, via mail rather than courier because I’m never home to receive a […]

On demand-Muti-entry-Rush-Turbo tournaments

Session Two: 408

Friday, April 1st, 2011

This one took almost twice as long, since I was watching a video I only played two tables. This is what happens when you run bad. That’s it for big hands, all losses. Sucked out on, then sucked out on again, then set mined and I tried to bet for thin value on the river […]
