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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

So I have managed to keep myself playing at $100nl, and maybe a good thing has happened? I successfully took my winnings down to $1. At some point I would have been negative but during the session I got to 3bet KK small from the SB against two bad short casual players who both called. […]

Bad time to try to push off a player with a steal rate of 40% over 120 hands .. Better time to try to steal myself, 2nd hand a a new table. The guy was pretty nice about it though, he typed “lol, nh.” “nasty flop” and I apologized for my luck. Next hand I […]

Not a great day. Down about $90 in total. My “run good” runned out, it seems. This is an interesting hand because of my stack size. I considered 3 betting JJ from the blinds, squeezing in the process but two things stopped me. One is that squeezing kinda kills the value of a hand, and […]

This is how a LAGgy player gets action. When he bets the flop when I check, I snap call just because he could have anything. Then I get lucky. He is a casual LAG so I may have lost value on the river here, same villain. First big loss of the session. I make a […]

Some additional observations on $100FR so far: I’m enjoying this. I don’t feel rushed because it’s one table. I don’t feel pressured, both because it’s one table but also because I’m buying in for 60 bbs. I don’t feel outclassed, ’cause I see some questionable plays by some of the other players. I’m having fun […]

One longer session that crossed tables. The first table had a couple casual losing players but they left so I looked for another. 98 hands, 9.3/6.2, steal of only 12.5 but on the first table I had a loose fish and no hands, and on the other I had few steal opportunities. PfPR of 4, […]

Two short sessions of $100nl FR, 134 hands, 13.5/11.3, steal 44%, PfPA 9.25, Agg 9, Agg% 75%, netting 2.16 bb/100. The last number in particular is pretty meaningless given the number of hands, but I’m happy with the others. I definitely scaled back on some activity, not open-raising 44 from UTG+1 in one situation and […]
