Moving along …

For years I’ve been posting as PokerAnon. Before that, though, someone else had the domain, unused, so I kept checking to see if it came available. It is, so I’ve claimed it, and likely all new posts will be there now. See you there!

My first down session since returning from the land of Zoom, after ten or so up sessions. A couple hands that I wanted to look at. First hand against a tight player, 12/10, almost a nit, opening only 6% from early position over 240 hands. 6% means 88+, ATs+, KQs. I 3 bet from the […]

Hand Review: One bad hand

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

[Current project: 6 max cash. Most of my cash game play has been full ring. To work on my 6 max game I have started at $10 tables] Actually played my 3rd session in 3 days. Too many short stackers. Was up slightly, until this hand. Player to my right I just made a note […]

Recently I’ve run across BlackRain a couple of times. He’s a microstakes grinder and coach who plays predominantly at $10nl FR and I’ve felt somewhat inspired by him to do some $10nl. My bankroll at Stars is still under $400 due to some variance and very little playing so it’s a little comforting to sit […]

Still more Rush. Maybe I’m actually gearing up to play poker again. SB is aggressive but I only have like 8 hands so far on him. AQ is ahead of his raising range and it’s vulnerable so I 3 bet. But is AQ ahead of his 4 bet range? Next hand, this isn’t a great […]

Not much playing, until today. I watched a video of someone playing 24 tables of $100nl, which got me inspired to try to get my tables up again so I went back to $25nl FR and figured out how to get 9 tables on one monitor, and then had a spare 10th one on the […]

14.08/12.9, 9.47, 14.08 bb/100, over 409 hands. It started out rough. I felt like I had too many tables running at first, and I was getting played back at quite a bit. The only thing that really saved the session was stacking one player mid-session, otherwise I’d have been down. This is different than the […]

It’s tough getting ahead. Still mini-sessioning Tilt trying to complete the promotion, and since I’m not getting much other time top play poker, that’s almost all of my playing. I got stacked a week or more ago when my KK was open limp/called for a 8x preflop raise after I 3 bet a minraiser in […]

I really need a more level-headed approach to grinding up my small bankrolls. I tend to want to get in to cheap tournaments or low cash games and dominate, being amazed at some of the bad plays. The bad plays tend to encourage me to feel superior and increase my expectation of winning, every hand. […]

If anyone has noted the dates in the posts, what’s happened is I’ve moved the Daily Grind to the WordPress site where my blog originated.

Well, after 3 weeks of almost all 6 max, I seem to be running well at full ring again. One 7 table session of $10nl to get into it, one 3-4 table session of $25nl, 600 hands total at rates of 69.8 and 89.6 bbs/100 respectively. Obv sustainable. Helped by winning 4-4 showdowns during the […]

I know I’m cueing the doomswitch, but out of the last 11 sessions I’ve had only one down session. Mind you, the last one is only up 0.90, but it’s all good, and even the down session was only $2.50 or so down. No big up sessions. The only times I stacked anyone were shortish […]

Having achieved the short term goal of silverstar for the month I can now play whatever/whenever I feel like it again. The longer term objective of the re-deposit bonus should be easily achievable so there’s really no need to worry about it. So this really means playing for fun or some other valid objective. Right […]

a Flash in the hand

Friday, April 24th, 2009

Not sure whether I should write about this here or in the main blog, but it’s short so I’ll put it here. I had a flash, something that I’ve been waiting for. Yesterday (a minus 1 buyin day, btw) there was a tight player who raised from either the HJ or CO position, 11/4/inf/21, steal […]

the Waiting Game

Sunday, April 19th, 2009

Haven’t written for a while, ’cause things have been pretty unexciting. Still trying to find my way out of the funk that I’ve been in. Tried playing tighter, playing less tables, playing more tables at $10, nothing is doing much for me. My run at the 210 FPPs has slowed, but that may be because […]

Down 60bbs

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

Two marginal situations; AK behind a 13/10 short stack, lost to QQ. I read him as less nitty than some, but 1) he’s not folding, so 2) I’m only ahead if he’s raising AQ. At best I’m likely hoping he has AK. Marginal, but I can/should be able to fold this. KK with two callers […]

Up, and down

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

Recovered one more buyin Not a lot of losing hands, just a couple set mines and one AK that was checkraised that I folded Got AA three times, once collected 75bbs AI pre, another fold, another I didn’t raise from the BB, bet a Q high flop and collected 25bbs from the open limper who […]

Misuse of LAG read

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

Made one weird play, flatting a raise w/99, then flatting a 3 bet from a 55/33 thinking there’s a good chance he’s squeezing. Flop comes T76 or something, and I donk into him. He calls, and another T comes. Turn goes ch/ch, river I check, he bets 1/3 pot, I call thinking he still might […]

Yesterday was not happy; too much anxiousness Today, kept getting donked into. Maybe partly because my stats were high on some tables; 32/24 and the like; 21/13 total for the session Made the mistake of c-betting w/low pair into three because I didn’t notice that I had 2 callers instead of 1; need to fix […]
