Reminded why I stopped playing tournies


  • I played some tournaments this weekend to try and refresh on my shoving/reshoving math to get sharp for Barcelona and I was reminded on why I hate them. There's just so much variance and I lost more 80/20s than I care to rehash. Obviously one way to counteract this is to play a bunch of tournies to try to balance out the variance but it's not something I'm eager to do.  Keep in mind that I played nothing tournaments for 2 years and this was a quick reminder of what I walked away from.
  • I'd also like to congratulate Vanessa for winning the PPT for I believe 1.8 million. Talking to her about poker a couple years ago as my coach you could really tell that she was at a level higher than most, the way she thinks about the game is incredible. I have a feeling she's going to start charging more than $650 an hour pretty soon and honestly she's worth pretty much whatever she decides her rate should be.
  • One good part about playing tournaments is I was able to put in some long cash game sessions as well. However a disturbing trend started this weekend. I was able to beat up on regs and the fish killed me. Far too often I got the fish down to their last $50 or so and they then ran it up to very large sums of money. The worst part is was it was usually all started by a suckout. So instead of having $0 left to play with they would double up and run it up. Very frustrating to say the least.
  • I had lunch on two separate occasions this week with friends of mine and poker was a topic during both. I'm usually very short about poker with my friends responding with "good" or "ok" if they ask me how it's going. I figure they don't want to hear about how I got coolered time after time last session or how I couldn't lose a coinflip. One thing I do have to watch is not using poker related terms around them although a few slip from time to time. I threw out the word freeroll during one lunch and my friend just said "I need a poker dictionary, you guys have so much lingo."
  • Another thing that I found funny was both asked me what my strategy was going to be for Barcelona. I froze the first time I was asked this question as I didn't know how to break it down in laments terms. I started off first by saying I play a pretty "tight, aggressive game" and the look on his face showed I needed to break it down a bit. I ended up landing on I'm not going to play a ton of hands but when I do I'll typically be raising.
  • The podcast I recorded with Joe and Chuck is now uploaded. You can listen to it here.
  • The month has started off pretty good. When I first started changing my game up ugotabanana told me there were going to be a bunch of swings. He wasn't kidding. Here's a shot of my graph so far this month and a song that has kept me sane. Not sure why but this number by Sara Bareilles kept me from throwing my headphones through the wall and dropping a number of BIs yesterday but it was invaluable.

Le monde est petit sur la toile. En quelques heures, un courriel fait le tour de la planète. Sites Utilitaires Vehicules d’annonces Caravaning Vehicules  et internautes servent de relais à votre popularité. L’effet « boule de neige » est d’autant plus marqué que les moteurs de recherche indexent avantageusement les sites vers lesquels pointent de nombreux liens. Une conversation en ligne ou un « buzz » en votre défaveur peuvent très rapidement faire remonter une image négative de votre organisation.

Un petit outil tout simple qui vous en dira beaucoup. Entrez l’adresse URL de votre site de petites annonces  ou de celle d’un de vos concurrents, cliquez sur « Get Page Strength » et vous obtiendrez une mine d’informations sur la présence web du site en question. Aux côtés des « classiques » (nombre de liens pointant vers le site, nombre de liens Google, âge du domaine, etc.) des mesures issues directement du monde des réseaux sociaux en ligne :

Le « typosquatting » consiste à acheter les différentes orthographes d’un site d’annonces  qu’on ne possède pas. On pourra ainsi utiliser les fautes de frappe

de l’internaute pour lui afficher un site qui n’est pas l’original. De grandes marques sont victimes,il existe des sites spécialisés aux annonces en qui vous redirigent vers un site qui traite aussi d’automobile par exemple mais qui n’est en rien lié à la marque. L’utilisateur risque de n’y voir que du feu,convaincu qu’il a tapé une adresse correcte. Le constructeur a perdu le contrôle de sa marque et de sa réputation.
