Relearning old lessons

Monday, February 20th, 2012

Last Friday night I played in the annual company poker tournament fund raiser. $20 buy in and rebuys for another $20, with half the money going to the prize pool and the other half going to Big Brothers. As is normal I didn’t fare particularly well, slow rolling trip jacks against a min-raiser but folding […]

Gold star

Monday, August 29th, 2011

I actually made Gold star this month on PokerStars. Not much of an accomplishment because this is the month that Stars dropped it’s VPP requirements. I think you can currently get Platinum for the VPP points that used to be required for Silver star. I’m not sure why they’re doing this. Maybe they’re planning to […]

$2.28 + .22 turbo

Monday, August 1st, 2011

End of a $2.28 + 22 180 man turbo on PokerStars. These are the ones that I use most of my T$ on. These are the last 5 hands of the tournament. My KQ gets a walk. The big stack raises from the small blind. He’s been aggressive, as he should be, but I get […]

Another $2.20 180 man turbo win. HEM says 30 tries so far, two wins, two seconds, and a few ITMs which essentially cover the cost of two entries. Overall plus $ 298, ROI of 452. 🙂 I only play these well on Sundays while watching football games. I don’t know if it’s the type of […]

More posting, just for updating purposes. Really not in any grinding frame of mind. I guess it’s summer, and I just don’t want to think that hard. I’m still playing, but I’m playing mostly the $2.15 Super Turbos on Full Tilt. They just don’t require much thinking at all, so I start one up while […]

Summer seems to be my time of non-grinding at the poker tables. In 2008 Full Tilt introduced the Super Turbos and I got hooked on those for a while, returning to cash games as a short stacker. In 2009 I interrupted my multi-tabling grind by trying to build a bankroll at Party Poker with a […]


Monday, June 28th, 2010

Update, just to update. I’ve played very little cash games in the past few weeks, other than some $10nl FR Rush poker when I feel like donking around. Like the other day a bunch of people that I know were at a $10 FR deep table at Tilt, and even though there was some chatter […]

I fold KK preflop

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

I had to post this one. From 6 max $10 at Party Poker. I don’t know why it’s not showing cards; I’m player 1, with KdKs. Player 2 and Player 6 are new to the table, but I’ve been playing against Player 4 for a while. He’s somewhat decent; he 3 bet me from the […]

3.40 Sit and Go

Friday, February 12th, 2010

Still running badly at Rush Poker so I tried to return to my Rampage with 4 tables of 25nl at Stars, and ran just as badly there. Card dead, the hands I do decide to play miss the flop so I try to compensate by generating action with weaker hands, and get played back at. […]

Trying to get off the Rush Poker train

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Trying to keep myself from playing Rush Poker these past few days, since I noticed some “video game” aggression creeping into my emotional playing base. Still, played some $25nl, got up some, lost it plus probably an extra half buyin. Yesterday same story; got up some when I raised KJ from the CO, button calls, […]
