$25nl 6max Zoom review

Sunday, April 27th, 2014

Up to 7,600 hands now at $25nl Zoom. Time for some hand review in here. One of the versions of hand review for me is to only pull out the largest big losses. So, here’s the ones over 80 bbs so far, in order of occurrence. I haven’t looked at them all yet. So, first […]

Starting $25nl 6 max Zoom

Sunday, April 20th, 2014

Interesting hand, at least for me. I’ve started playing some $25NL 6 max Zoom. The first couple of sessions I felt like when I’ve played $50NL and $100NL full ring cash in the past; worried, afraid that I’m out of my skill level and comfort zone. That’ll happen after not being a reg for a […]

Back at Stars, still winning

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Time for an update. After about a month mostly on Full Tilt, playing only two instances (while watching programs on my computer) and running pretty much flat, I’ve moved back to Stars again, four instances, while re-watching episodes of “House”. Good day today contributes to the win rate, So now I don’t know when to […]

Worst hand wins

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Happens all the time. Best hand preflop loses to two or more other hands. A pair of Aces will win less and less often the more other hands you’re up against. But, this one is painful. I re-raise poorly preflop intentionally to try to get the bad players in. On the other hand, I give […]

A few hands into trying out Full Tilt. It’s moving slower than on Stars. I’m only playing 2 instances rather than 4, partly because Tilt seems to lag more than Stars, partly because I’m now watching Game of Thrones instead of House, and I need to pay a little more attention because, unlike House, I […]

Moving to Full Tilt

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

Taking my $10nl 6 max Zoom game to Rush at Tilt for comparison. It’s bad. I have to downgrade my game to adjust for the play. This one I post for the preflop action. An open limper, I raise, get flatted, then min-raised before it comes back to the open limper, who, with great pot […]

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

After a month and a half I’m still on my $10 6 max Zoom project. I guess eventually I should move up to $25nl. I’ve got the bankroll, I had the bankroll for that when I started, but I kind of like this training ground. My non-showdown line is flattening slightly; I’m firing slightly more […]

The unpredictability of Zoom (Rush) Poker

Sunday, February 9th, 2014

The toughest aspect of quick-fold poker like Zoom, Rush or their equivalents on other sites, is not knowing enough about how your opponent plays. Here I flat an UTG raise from a TAG; 24/19, 1.7. My plan is to call flop with any pair or draw, possibly bet if checked to. But KQ is one […]
