Wait, Rinse, Repeat

Felicia is my new favorite person. I was very fond of her before. However her advice in NLHE: Wait, Rinse, Repeat. Is most excellent! Just that small tweak of never chasing and waiting for good strong hands to go all in on has saved me a lot of money. I have been on a nice run. Over $700+ in the past five days. Bringing my bankroll up over $1200. Not too bad. It is really simple to win at low limit HE. There are enough people in the 100/NL and under games to ensure that only the worst of luck will bring you down. So I am going to say it again: Be Patient. Decide who you want to be. Are you the fish, darting quickly into every dangerous situation, being devoured by the predators? Are you the lion who knows he will only get a few shots at taking down his prey. He conserves his energy(chips). Waiting quietly in the bushes until the wind is right, and the antelope gets just close enough. When it is time he LEAPS into action and takes down the big prey! Remember also that your choice has to be made over and over, in each and every hand you are in. Sometimes you will falter and fall. You will have to re-dedicate yourself to the role of the predator. So what are you going to do? Decide now because there is a lot of opportunity if you chose right.

I'm a platypus.

I'll have to remember that whenever I get jumpy and anxious to play - wait, rinse, repeat. Good stuff. I like mantras that I can repeat over and over in my head :)

Cash games = I am a trout

Tournament games = I am a shark

Too bad tourneys take 4-5 hours to complete.
