Sometimes, I can be such a fish…
So I actually try to play despite my illness. I splashed around at all levels at an ungodly rate. At one point my bankroll was BELOW the $20 I deposited! Made some modest recovery during the afternoon, then this evening I jumped all over the place. Started at .25/.50, caught a big pot right off, then sucked out 2 more. By the 4th hand, we were down to 3 and they were both QQWIN99 short. I hammered until a bigger stack came along. It was fun exploiting the smaller stacks…. AGGRESSION!
So I jumped around between .10/.20 and .25/.50, looking for similar situations – 1 or 2 short stacks that were hammer-able. Some games were successful, some not, but by the end of it all I had recovered all my losses.
As the Nature Boy, Ric Flair would say: “WHOOOOOOO!”
Ok, so I can’t do that every night and expect long-term success, but from time to time it might be fun to exploit. I remember reading an article in at the CardPlayer.com site by Daniel N. where he used to take one day a month to just go wild and get it out his system. He doesn’t do it anymore (to my knowledge), but it might be fun to try again after the new year.
I’ve been away on travel for my real job. Trip went well (I know, you all ccare SOOOO much!) Did not play poker while I was gone, but I still wanted to do an update….
So, my long-awaited cafepress.com order finally came in. If you remember, I have created Big Slick Nuts gear and have started selling it at cafepress.com. I also told you all not to buy any until I had a chance to order a sample and check it out.
Well, I must say, the quality is EXCELLENT. I order a sticker, and it turned out great. Next, I’m going to order a piece of apprarel.
It takes about 7-10 days to receive your item, depending on your location. Mine took the full 10 days. But it was defnitely worth it!
Well, I am going to go back to the tables and see if my involuntary (but needed) break has helped my mind-set at all.
So, I’ve been running bad lately.
I get few playable hands. My straights and flushes aren’t filling out. I haven’t seen a full house in ages. If I flop trips, someone else picks up a straight. If I have 2 pr, someone else has trips.
Yeah, it’s been like that.
Strangely, I’m not panicky or anxious. I know bad runs can go on and on for thousands of hands, and the only way to get through them is to play through them. I’m playing at the lowest limits so I don’t have to change from a tight aggressive style. I know that if I play passive at a higher level, I’ll fail.
So, I’m just working through it as best I can.
