So/so night. I finished 18th in the WWDN, which while respectable, is not exactly where I wanted to be. Congrats to Maudie and Jewels for first and second! Well done ladies.
I almost made the final table. I pushed with a small stack with AT s000ted and got called by AJ. I have no idea why you people refuse to lay down your weak Aces to aggression. Instead you insist on calling off 50%-100% of your remaining chips with these hands. It is a –EV situation at best IMHO but keep playing that way I need the money. Keep paying attention. Keep calling the guy who plays the least hands at the table. Keep calling the one who hardly ever steals blinds. Keep it up. It helps me in the long run. I actually out flopped my opponent but Riverstars came through and slapped a Jack on to the end. If I win that hand I am for sure at the final table.
I played a little 2/4 LHE and a couple more MTTs. I think I was too tired for the MTTs because I did not play well at all. Oh well. I did make back everything I lost on Stars playing LHE. So far 2/4 has been my sweet spot. I would like to win some at 3/6 but it has not happened yet.
Veneno was hanging around so I tell her I will play some LHE with her. She says she is grinding away. So I go to sit at her table and she is playing 6-max. It may suit her better. I convince her to step down to a full table. Nothing was available at .50/1, so we jumped into a .25/.50 table. Veneno was not in the mood to listen to any advice. She constantly called my pre-flop raises with Kx s00ted rags and crap like that. Her rating in Poker Tracker (not surprisingly) is LA-(A/P). Depending on her mood. Loose is an understatement though as I have her seeing 49% of the flops. Wow! Veneno if you are going to be serious about LHE you need to stop this. It will NEVER be profitable. Sure you may get a night when all the flops hit you but long term you are doomed. Finally I had to quit giving her advice since she ignored me anyway.
Someone send her a copy of SSHE. Please! She needs to get her pre-flop game down solid before learning to play post flop. I think she can do it. She is a smart and tough player. The question with her is if she wants to take it seriously. The concept of playing boring, folding, poker, may not appeal to her LAG personality. It may not be a fit. So Veneno, decide what you want to do. If you like LHE then tighten up. If you get bored or distracted play something else. Not everyone is cut out for the game. I beleive in you V, but only if you really want to play the game.
Oh, and I was running pretty goot at that .25/.50 table. Something like 44/BB 100. Nice! I wonder if I could maintain that rate. I could make fifteen bucks every night! Woo Hoo!
On for tonight: The Big-O Mookie Tourney. It is the best Donkey fest ever!
