Some 8game hands

I’ve put in a few sessions at 40/80 8game thus far on my holiday trip to Colorado. The first was in the San Francisco airport during my 4+ hour delay (apparently snowstorms aren’t designed with air traffic in mind). I played well but ran pretty bad in that one, losing both of the biggest pots I played. A few big PLO or NL hands can really dominate your session results, though as a specialist in those games I’m happy to accept the variance.

[PLO] 52/48 FTL
[NLHE] ‘sigh’

I was more successful in my next session, getting unstuck from the day before and then some.
[stud8] backdoor 2pr for the scoop!
[stud8] GIN!
[stud hi] valuetowne

In general, I’m very confident with my 8game right now. I think I’m actually playing quite well in the games I used to be weaker in, particularly the split-pot games. Good thing I’ve got Chuck and Joe on my team :).

The new home of Sensei's blog

Yo dudes, I’m gonna start blogging on here from now on for the most part. It looks like our blog network has finally gotten developed fully and is ready to rock, and I’m glad to see so many members and other coaches getting involved. As for my old blog, I’ll probably still post there now and again but it will be more relevant to my non-poker friends.

I personally haven’t been playing a ton of poker lately, though the sessions I’ve put in have been pretty consistently profitable. Play an hour or two of triple draw, win a few Gs, play a few hours of PLO, win a few Gs. I certainly can’t complain about that. The main reason I haven’t been playing so much is that I’ve simply been busy with other things. I’ve been putting a lot of work in on a few big DC projects, like Mount Robusto-. If you want to get involved in something pretty awesome that will also help improve your game, you should definitely sign up. Also, we’re finishing up production of the second From Busto to Robusto film, featuring Andrew “good2cu” Robl. (Robusto everywhere!)

Thats it for now, I’ll hopefully try to post here more often with hands and ideas and updates and whatnot. I know how you kids like blog posts :p. Also, if you have anything you’d like to see me blog about, feel free to drop it in the comments and I’ll do my best!
