Had a second down session. It started off really bad, then I thought that I pulled out of it after going some 1,500 hands for the session. But I ended up down $43 or so obviously not quite back to even. 🙁 Then another session today, up $49 in just under 500 hands, and that […]

Weaned from Zoom

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

I’m still having problems accessing my web sites from one of my locations, and apparently it’s the location that I write most of my posts from since I’m now posting almost not at all. For the month of June I’ve almost entirely weaned myself from Zoom, with the exception of some 0.01/0.02 PLO where I […]

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 […]

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 […]

Review time

Friday, January 14th, 2011

Okay, fourth session in four days, up 0.97 for the session. But it’s time to review some hands. I’ve opted to pull the biggest losing hands over the last 2,400 hands or so. Opponent is 35/27 but only over two orbits or so. This came from a session where I was feeling a bit overwhelmed […]

Folding KK

Friday, January 14th, 2011

Okay, congratulating myself for having played 3 days in a row. Not a lot of memorable hands, save one, but I did finish up $18, which offsets the $17 loss in the previous session. This is the first session in some time where it ended because we lost internet connection. I signed out, then tried […]

Not more of the same

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

Next session was a lot different. Lots of aggressive players and not as good cards or situations. Was 3 bet from the blinds first time on the button on one table. He 3 bet me again the next time so I flatted. Q high flop, c-bet, I call. He checks the turn, I bet, he […]

Recent stats

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

This is more to note some stats more than anything. Including December and one session just now, 5 sessions of $25nl FR, 1,362 hands. 53.50 bb/100 17.2/12.0 CO UO PFR: 35.2 But OU PFR: 61.0 SB OU PFR: 42.9 Steal %: 45.1 c-bet %: 83.3 c-bet success: 60.0 After a while it gets embarrassing. I […]


Saturday, December 11th, 2010

Trying to play a bit again after a break. 6 tabling $25nl FR. Started off rough, down $11, but next session I was up $54, then $23, then $68 in this last session, with only 200 – 300 hands in each session. Winning at 44 bb/100. First hand at this table. I call because the […]


Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Updating to update. Haven’t been playing much. Had been playing some $25nl Rush and got to a few thousand hands and down a buy-in or two. I suspect this is due to not adjusting my game from $10nl; surprise! there is a difference! I’ve given up a couple stacks to players who did have the […]


Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

9 tables of $25nl FR. Still trying to convince myself to grind cash tables instead of playing Rush poker. This isn’t the best situation; 88, J62 two tone flop, called by two players behind and one in the blind. But I opt to c-bet. Blind has checked, I don’t have many hands on any players […]


Monday, August 23rd, 2010

So for the first time since early June I played more than 200 hands on Stars. This is after a massive spew session playing Rush yesterday. I accumulated some frustrations playing too much at this always frustrating level and gave up about 3 buyins after being up early on. I can blame some spew on […]


Monday, May 24th, 2010

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 […]


Friday, May 21st, 2010

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 […]


Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

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 […]


Thursday, April 15th, 2010

No poker yesterday due to busy-ness, and very little the night before because Stars and HEM are not working together since the change of the tables/hand history writing of Stars. I probably had an up session that night anyway due to a player calling my EP PFR with AQs, and then check/calling all three streets […]


Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Another down session, but no stats or details as I’m at different computer than I use for poker. Lost about 80 bbs net. Hit a lot of sets, but didn’t get paid off for them. Flatted QQ behind a tight early position raise and gave up two small streets of value to KK Flatted QQ […]


Sunday, April 11th, 2010

452 hands, 6 tables of $25nl, 15.1/11.7, 5.0 PfPA, minus 17.26 bb/100, breaking my streak of 6 consecutive up sessions. I could feel my groove dissipating during the last session even though that one was only 80 hands while playing in a tourney with some friends. I stacked a nit with the nut straight; he […]

Opponent analysis

Friday, April 9th, 2010

So here’s a project. This player was playing very oddly. Mostly loose and passive preflop, but aggressive postflop. So I’ve collected up the hands that he played, in sequence, to take a look at how he’s thinking. First hand, I think his first at the table, First activity, I think. Next hand, he’s completing in […]


Thursday, April 8th, 2010

4th session in a row where I finish up 80 bbs or more. It’s nice when I start to get into a groove. 5-7 tables, 399 hands, 19.0/12.7, again some fishy players that I limp or call to get in hands with them or the 19.0 would be lower, 5.85 PfPA, 31.18 bb/100. First hand […]


Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

357 hands over mostly 6 tables. Had 7 for a couple of minutes, but a couple of them broke down quickly. 14.9/9.7, 5.5 PfPA and 22.35 bb/100. Again, a few instances of passive calling when bad players who I suspect won’t fold to isoraises or c-bets are in the hand which stretches the VPIP/PFR gap […]


Sunday, April 4th, 2010

Runned pretty good; 425 hands on 6 tables, 18.2/10.9, PfPA of 9.54, plus 46 bb/100. Stats are a bit loose/passive, but on one table in particular there was a 79/10 fish that had a 300 bb stack when I sat down that I kept calling in position. Finally got some chips from them. I tend […]


Friday, April 2nd, 2010

Who 3 bets 44 from the blinds, and then flats a 4 bet? I 4 bet light because I expect him to fold everything except AA/KK, which I expect him to shove. If he flats I expect mostly AK or some other big Ace hand that he can’t release, or QQ/JJ. On the flop AA/QQ […]


Friday, April 2nd, 2010

Slowly getting comfortable with more tables again. Had 7 running for quite a while, with the 8th spot taken by the final table of a $2 tournament that a whole bunch of friends were playing in. Too bad I can never make these tournies. It’s interesting that I’m running much looser again than I was […]


Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

These things happen, I guess. Tried to play 8 tables of $25nl FR on Stars, but had a heck of a hard time finding decent tables. Usually when my intention is to play 8, I get on the waiting list for 10 or 11 tables and open then to watch the action, but this time […]
