day 3 .. not lol at all

welcome back
sticking to my new rigorous strategy, last nite it was the turn of the 5-card draw brigade to quake in their fishy bowls take my monies, lol .. but, hey, at least i stuck with the strategy.
Lessons .. decide how much to sit down with before you sit down ! being limit, one misclick and you'll be sat there wi your entire roll, oops.
so I dropped about $8.50 or two buy-ins, all in the name of education. Table Ninja would not play at all, fml, so it was a lot of frantic mouse action .. being 6-handed and not a lot of people paying the blinds and going to the draw makes it a fast game .. it was a bit z00mish .. most players folding to a raise .. next hand please !
Being new, I found it difficult to even beat the blinds never mind the fucking fish ! The other thing I found difficult whist multitabling was clicking the bet/call button and then having to click on the cards I wanted to discard .. it was a bit frantic but I hope to get used to it the more I play .. or give it up as a bad joke, time will tell.
First session in the bag and a whole lot ?? of experience too. I'll be back in a week or so you 5-card-fish    <*)))))-{

A few days off and I'll be back on strategy :) different game of course, but I'll let you know.

day 2 .. not quite as loud lol

welcome back

sorry, no pretty pictures today as I've no tracking software for last nights shenanigans .. so last night I joined up with the stud 8 cash players lol oh and one stud 8 mtt (small field, forum game)
lets get the mtt oot the way .. I was more than a little pissed that I was the bubble boy, busting out in fifth spot, meh. It is the ironman series so the points are welcome. Especially since the league leader scored way less points than I did :)
On the cash front I made a couple of dollars which equates to 24 big bets or there abouts.

For your info the 8c cash games run this way .... obligatory 1c ante, bring in was 2c and small bets 4c, big bets 8c .... and as my co-commentator and I are always saying, its amazing how big the pots get even tho it is "only" limit :)

The game plays way quicker than 08 even tho it was 8-handed play. That was the first surprise. Then I could not for the life of me get that stoopid table-ninja to work at all on the cash games .. fine on the mtt front .... pfffft. So i had to resort to using 'stars own hotkeys .... sometimes they worked, sometimes not. The one really annoying thing they would not do was post the bring-in .... wtf ?? The other thing I noticed, apart from no-one at any table ever believed that this new fish had half a clue as to what he was doing, was the fact that the players were exceedingly flighty. The player turnaround was quite amazing .... and probably quite a shock to them when they left one table to go to another and I'd be sat there too, lol.
Imagine the new fish multitabling ! what is the world coming to ?!

I played across 5-tables, all 8c ones of course but I was exceptionally pleased that I did not get skinned considering this was my very first foray into the murky world of the stud player.

day 1 report .... lol

welcome back

and so the alcohol-fuelled bankroll-busting-binge has come to an abrupt end, thank you very much. No, I'm not completely busto but I might as well be, lol. Although to be fair, I did have quite a bit of fun along the way :)
It could be a few weeks, a few months more like ! been playing all the variations 'stars has to offer .. the main problem is playing them all at the same time ! I find it quite difficult to multitable 08 and omaha .. same with 2-7 draw and 5-card draw .... lmfao, fucking nightmare.
I even threw in some nlhe .. no, really. Played a few of those 10c 360 runner things .. they, surprisingly, could actually be very profitable .. taking 90mins to wrap up a 4th place for 26 buy-in profit, they would be so "easy" to multitable .. hmmmm
Sorry, I digress. Last night I returned to my "home" .. good old cash 08.
Played across 16 tables (not all at once) consisting of 2c, z00m and 25c .. something close to 650 hands at 2c, 100 hands at z00m and 50 hands at 25c .... I, surprisingly, was not overly rusty and managed to turn a profit.
A picture, as they say, paints lots of words and I've waffled enuf as it is ....
