Moving along …

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

For years I’ve been posting as PokerAnon. Before that, though, someone else had the domain, unused, so I kept checking to see if it came available. It is, so I’ve claimed it, and all new posts will likely be there now. See you there!

Playing against Quad Aces

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

I’m still thinking about the hand that I posted in the last entry, and I don’t know why, so I’ll write about it, see if that works it out of me. From my opponent’s perspective, the 3 bet from the blind at 6max doesn’t necessarily mean a lot. Even tight players know that aggression is […]

Things for further consideration

Managing Zoom Tilt

Sunday, March 31st, 2013

Playing Zoom, and winning, and on a long weekend, it’s easy to roll in some hand history. So far I’m liking it. Still only 6,000 hands, but the only down session was the first. A run of up sessions is always a good thing. Winning sessions is a nice contrast from all the other times […]

Zoom/Rush poker tilt

Monday, March 18th, 2013

I’m slowly starting to figure out some things about about how I tilt at Zoom/Rush poker. There are a number of triggers, and they often seem to occur in this order before I start feeling the affects: A good suckout, usually on the river, when we’re all in or I can’t fold the river A […]

PokerStars, on Facebook

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

For the past six days I’ve been playing the app on Facebook. I’m up to level 150 or something, and just got a 24hr 3x multiplier as my day six bonus. A multiplier of what base numbers I don’t know, but supposedly something is being multiplied. It all began last week when I got […]
