Apparently I had an overly aggressive image at this table. My VPIP and PFR were reasonable, but I had 3 bet 3 times, first hand at the table with AA, then with AQs, then a failed “squeeze” with AQo, all from the blinds. Much later though I make a standard reraise of a min flop […]

It’s been longer that usual since my last post. I’ve been busy writing stuff for the main blog though, all of which has been scheduled in the future. I think at this point I’m like 3 weeks ahead of myself there. Partly this is because I don’t like to post more than say 3 times […]

Reads are important. That’s some of the problem of multitabling too much. You miss some hands that go down when you’re not involved and have to rely on stats. Here villain is 58/11/6/32, but more importantly I noted him earlier betting a draw hard once and trying to bluff someone off in another hand. Otherwise, […]

This is pretty bad. The pot is limped. Since I’m playing 6 tables I often opt to not raise medium pairs from the blinds if there are limpers ahead, but whenever I flop a set I get excited. Not only did I lose, but I had the 3rd best hand. And the weird thing is […]

One of the problems for me is that I play relatively short sessions, and the problem shows up in table selection. I search for high VPIP, high average pot size and avoid short stacks, but then I take whichever tables come available first. After a couple of orbits I start to get some stats/reads on […]

I don’t know what these guys had that would cause the SB to 3 bet, then the BB to flat the 3 bet, but apparently my small 4 bet was too scary. It’s the reason that I’ve started 4 betting AK small as well. It’s nice when you have a 4 way pot and you […]

Too busy to play much poker lately, but I got in a short session this morning. Still playing 3x25nl 6 max. Slowly starting to get a feel for the tables. The biggest thing at this level seems to be that people seem to feel that playing 60/4, 35/30, 25/5, or 8/8 are all fine. I […]

This is either funny, or weird. Still playing 3 tables of 25nl 6max. Slowly starting to get a feel for 6 max, and getting more into a flow. Here I’ve been at this table for around 50 hands. The player two to my right and I have chipped up a bit from a bad loose […]

Tried 3 tables of $25nl 6 max for a change. Tables played very strangely. Had 3 players who would overbet the pot. One player seemed to settle down after the player beside him left the table; the player beside more than a few times shoved almost his entire stack in on the flop. The third […]
