Last Friday we played a $0.05/$0.10 dealer's choice cash game at my place on the new(ish) poker table that I brought back from my place at University. It was a 5 handed game the entire night and we played everything from pineapple, crazy pineapple, 2-7 TD, 7 card stud, 5 card draw, PLO, NLHE. I bought in for 200bb and walked away with around 820bb.
Last night we played a straight $0.05/$0.10 PLO cash game. I bought in for 400bb and walked away with about 800bb. We had some really insane action as two other players also bought in for 400bb and then most bought in for 200bb with a few at 100bb. It's not really a whole lot of money, but considering that my online bankroll is $0 and was only ~$300 before that... its big compared to what I normally played for.
As for studying poker I have been reading mathematics of poker, and taking notes on both Math Attacks and Applied Math. I've done no game specific studying, but I have been writing some ruby code here and there to do different things. I think my next big project will be a class to store hand ranges, likely as a probability distribution if I can get decent performance out of it.
I have not been playing online, and have been debating between what game I will play when I do finally redeposit. Its between HUSNG / 6max PLO cash / 6max NLHE cash. I'll decide eventually... Anyway I'm off to play some SC2 with a friend and then Backgammon with my mother!
