I put in no volume over the past month as I needed a break from poker and wanted to focus on my health. On the health front nothing has really changed my lung function is slightly improved somewhere in the 72% range and I have tenosynivitis in my right arm. All in all things are improving.Freerolling
I cashed out 4 times my initial deposit on stars and have opened an account on Full Tilt with DC rakeback. It would be good if Full Tilt spread Triple Draw. I will be playing mainly Razz, Stud H/L and Stud on Full Tilt. HU Super Turbos
[ ] Time Sink
[ ] Rake Trap
[ ] Frustration
[x] All of the above
I started to two table these and after about 225 $2.10 games I have lost about $36.50, not a big deal but in these games I think my edge is just far to small so for now I will give these games a miss.Razz, Stud and Stud H/L
At the stakes I play (Micros) these games are very very soft and I find it good to take a break from triple draw. I think I am up about $20 on stars and $15 on FT in the last couple of days. 8 Game
I have started to play some 8 game S&Gâ€™s not for $$ just for a bit of fun. My worst games are Omaha and Omaha H/L. I am about to start reading The Pot Limit Omaha Book: Transitioning from NLHE to PLO so hopfully that helps. In the new year I will be ordering High-Low-Split Poker for Advanced Players by Ray Zee.
Triple Draw â€“ Easy game :), just play my normal game.
Limit Holdâ€™em â€“ Loose and aggresive in position, steal as much as possible.
NLHE â€“ Loose and aggressive in position, steal as much as possible.
Omaha â€“ Play like a Nit.
Omaha H/L â€“ Play like a Nit lock up one side of the pot with a draw to the other side.
Razz, Stud â€“ Steal with good door cards, get a way from marginal hands early value town weak opponents.
Stud H/L â€“ Scoop.
I have not really played to much triple draw I have not even put in 1000 hands. I am in a bit of a rut my win rates has seemed to stagnate at around 6 BB/100 mark over a large smaple. So I am trying some new things and opening up my game a little. Most of the sessions I have played are one table so my $/Hr has dropped. Below is the last 700 hands I played. In these games I have been trialing an ULTRA loose aggresive / borderline maniacal style. It puts me in a lot of marginal situations but I think this is helping me think about the game on a higher level.
Poker is Fun
For me I am trying to learn as much as I can and have fun doing it. For the next few weeks I will be absorbing as much information as I can and really thinking and analysing my play. I will be playing two tables most of the time with maximum of four and for sit and goes and tournies I will be playing 6 tables with a maximum of 12.
