20,000 hands

Saturday, February 8th, 2014

Just over a month, and I’m still on my project, $10nl, 6max, Zoom.     I’m now at a point of playing the full four instances, the max allowed at any one type/buyin level. I started off with one, went to three (don’t ask me why; I just had been comfortable with three before) and […]

Zoom, 6 max NLHE

Friday, January 24th, 2014

So, current project, $10 NLHE 6 max Zoom. Villain is loose, aggressive. I put him on a big flush draw, and with top pair, I’m happy to let him bluff the river. Ever wonder what a min-raise means? Apparently it means a suited Ace, and it’s good enough to keep min-raising, even if the other […]

Un-Managing Zoom tilt

Sunday, April 7th, 2013

Zoom (Rush) Poker, and tilt

Monday, February 18th, 2013

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 […]

Zoom: Getting started

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

[Zoom Poker is the next big thing on PokerStars. After some fooling around I’m starting at $10nl full ring, where I left off on Rush Poker, to get a feel for the game again.] So it’s here, Zoom Poker, the godsend for cash game players who have families, jobs, and other things that make it […]
