Does anyone play more random games on a daily basis than me? Yesterday was Razz MTT, some limit and no limit. Thursday was all limit. Earlier this week a ton of Omaha. Some 30nl 200bb deep before that. Donkaments. I should like pick a game? Nah... better to be slightly above average at all! Heh.

Tonight.... HU SNG NL Tournaments! Only because NL Cash HU plays way above my bankroll.

I had to do this twice before I wised up and bought an external hard drive. Now I have all my mp3s/videos on it so I don't have to spend (literally) a month finding and downloading everything again.

Weird, I just played and won 4 $10 HU SNG's and 3 of my opponents never raised preflop until they got really low in chips. Never! The other one was around 8% prf lol. Only got raised when I bet flop/turn/river a few times. Pretty sure it was the nuts each time. Just value bet / bluff everything and fold when they bet. I don't think I've played 4 worse players in forever.

i used to know, but now i don't remember. do ftp points represent .005 cents rake or .05 cents rake? i'm trying to figure out how much a jersey would deduct from 27% rakeback.

whyzze 11-03-2007 06:26 AM

Re: ***uNL Microbrew Thread*** NOV 2007 (ot)
 
25000*.005*.27= -33.75 rb deduction.


I'm saving all my points for when I stop playing at FTP.

I feel like I'm playing better...money going in good most times now. I feel like I'm like on the brink of "getting it." Gonna try and log a bunch of hands this month and move up.

Been working with Carnivalhobo to try and improve my thought processes...he sends me an interesting hand and I have to explain why a certain line was taken, whether the line maximizes value, etc. Pretty difficult sometimes but its really helping.

Well itīs def a lot of fun iīve been playing minibet a lot lately but iīm breaking even at 5/10 but maybe thatīs just b/c that is the first time iīve played limit... Should one play lower than 5/10 sh and 8/16 hu to learn the game?
It def was a fun experience though [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
and iīve played qute a lot of stud lately which obv is a lot of fun too.
&lt;sad story&gt;
The only problem is that iīm not really +ev at any of these games so iīll prob just stick to holdem and make my 6ptbb/100...
&lt;/sad story&gt;

true but at that point i was still playing 100nl/200nl before i cashed out b/c i decided i only wanted to play with my profit. So then i left a 50nl roll and with yesterdayīs tourney cash i can play 100nl again and soon iīll start taking shots at 200nl again.
Is 5/10 medium stakes for limit? it surely isnīt highstakes b/c i didnīt get raped there over the couple of k hands i played.

Gelford 11-03-2007 08:19 AM

limit is a strange beast ... and I actually think that the games are fairly soft (at least on the euro sites I play)

Recommended bankroll is 500-1000BB with 500BB=the usual 20BI recommendation for NL in terms of security.


I personally view 1/2$=100NL, 2/4$=200NL etc .. not in terms of difficulty as much as in terms of roll and swings


I might be too conservative tho, and a case can be made for saying that 2/4$=100NL etc ... which I don't have no problems with.


Still 5/10$ is not a small game .. but beatable as far as I could tell the few times I've played it (I usually am found on the 1/2 and 2/4 tables)


Also I only play fishmax, I can't stand FR in any form for poker except for the Stud based games. (where FR=8 players btw due to there only being 52 cards in a deck [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] )

[/ QUOTE ]Heh, I just started playing it again. I swear the game is easier now than it was 3 years ago. Or, maybe I'm better. Both prob. No one ever folds Ace high now head's up. And always peel flop with one no matter how many players and pay off. Get paid off by bottom pair 100% of the time. Why didn't anyone tell me this when I was wasting my time in NL?

Gelford 11-03-2007 08:36 AM

Re: ***uNL Microbrew Thread*** NOV 2007 (ot)
 
Cos you're overlooking how small the edge you're pushing really is, just wait til you start running bad and either lose large chunks one bet at a time or hit the standard 50K breakeven run [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]


The same can be said of SNGs


And yeah, you're better now .. the poker world was a lot more weak-tight 3 years ago (most us actually) but now there is plenty of gamble in even the micro's

With gamble comes better handreading ... just look at the 'old' books even the 2+2 ones like HEFAP, monsters under the bed [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]


I for one enjoy running around 30/20 in minbet

Are the games really that good at party though? Over the last 15k hands iīve been running yt 6ptbb/100 at ftp (100nl) and the games really did seem soft...
I used to play at party too but changed to ftp to clear the 600$ bonus and i get close to 1k rb a month.
you really think there is any value in going back to good old party?

[/ QUOTE ]I'm a nit through my first 1.5k hands. 25/18. I fold quite a few hands that I'd play with less rake. Plus at .5/1 half the players are 80/5/0 so it doesn't matter. Definitely not looking forward to a downswing... running hot now 4.8bb/100.

regulars at party are better and more aggro than on other sites. Party is just a bigger site, so you can table select better.
