Gametime+. What do you think about this? A tool or cheating? I mostly have used Poker Tracker to keep track of my hands. I tried out G+ last night and found it interesting. I like the icon representation of the people I am playing against. It gets easier to tell between a taz and a maniac for instance. It was also funny to see my entire table with the lowest VP$IP of 42%! Tell me that is not a money making table or a suckout horror fest. Lucky for me it was the prior. It was fun seeing Iggy as a Taz too! I am pretty sure he plays slightly different on the NL tables than the 15/30’s, and I only have about 2K hands on him which 2+2ers will tell you is statistically insignificant!
One stat that disturbed me was the fact that I let people steal my blinds 77% of the time! What the hell! Here is my thinking: Why defend your blinds with crappy Q2, and find out $70 later that, hey, ya, he did have Q7 to beat you? Or even better A2 when he actually does have the AK! I just have a hard time thinking the $5 is worth it. However I think 77% could be too high. A little.
April from a Non-Poker Blog is looking for a Poker mentor. I mention this because I know all the top Bloggers read this and wanted to help her out. Heh. However it got me to thinking. It would be so cool to have a student. I have thought about it before you could be proud of them, or embarrassed if it was G-Rob. Heh. Just Kidding man! I know I am not ready to take that leap yet. I have trouble enough defining why I am a winning player. It would be extremely hard to make someone else a winning player. Heck, I am not even sure I have played long enough to say I am a winner! I also need to get back on the full tables. I love the short ones but I need to prove to myself I can beat 5/10 full games. It is fun shooting fish in a barrel but I have some pride! Don’t laugh! A little pride! Tiny. Bit. I am going to wait until I get the roll up to 5K and give it another shot.
So far one taker in the rule Sir’s Site for a day contest! The Big Lick! Just think about what I could post on a site with that name! What the hell is a Canadian doing betting on American football anyway? Does he know it does not contain a round ball? Someone who has a stake in the Steelers needs to pick up the mitten! Oh well. Maybe Sebas should come back and give it a shot! He could show me how to write some interesting material or something. I am loving the idea of an Eagles vs. Pats game! My wife is an Eagles fan!!! Tickets to the Steelers game are surprisingly cheap. I can get a seat for $189. Probably standing room only. The good seats are only 1K. Not too bad. I bet I could make that in a week. I cannot wait to see what Super Bowl tickets are going to cost!!!
I am thinking of stopping the 2AM, this is how I did tonight posts. I am way to tired to post anything interesting at that time of night. I think the “It is almost lunch time and I am bored” posts are a little better. Of course it is fun to tell everyone how good might night is going! Oh well.. I guess quantity over quality is about all I can handle. Have fun tonight.. And, hey - let's be careful out there.
