Lifetime graph is decent, but really nothing to get too excited about. I am winning money in general, but I'm not sure I'll ever be able to sustain a win rate high enough to move up to 100NL, even if my BR allows for it.

That one. Check it out, great food. Pizza is decent but it's a classy joint (for Dearborn), so the other items are better IMO. The bread though. Wow. It's unbelievably great. I'd often go there and just eat like 3 baskets of it, lol and no other food.

A good burger joint is Miller's in Dearborn... it's a bar that serves really awesome burgers. Legendary place in the area. Go there too. Kind of hard to find.

edit: You can tell I lived there for ~15 years, eh?

[/ QUOTE ]Heh.

Similarly I don't know much about Ann Arbor or any other city in the region. Just Dearborn + Deaborn Heights. Didn't really go outside of there to eat since there are a lot of nice places. Kiernan's for a nice steak or club sandwhich. Kawloon's (prob spell it wrong) for really greasy Chinese chicken. Obv tons of Middle Eastern food, which I don't like that much, but there are a few bakeries that make some sick good cheese bread type stuff. Not too much in terms of Mexican food... Don Pablo's (?) is meh. Taco Bell at 4am after you are done getting high ldo.

I should write a book on this.

Nice, man. Yeah it is amazing how much that whole "thinking" thing helps. [img]/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Sometimes when I start getting sloppy I have to resort to a system an old limit mentor taught me of actually talking out every move that I am making, for example:

[ QUOTE ]

I am folding this 4[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]3[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] because even though I am on the button I will be cold calling one raise from a UTG raiser with noone else in the pot, which means my implied odds are not good and my equity sucks, so I should not call.

A wise man once said "It don't mean a thang if it ain't got that schwang!"

[censored] downsings suck, especially when you actually have to move down because there is that nagging feeling of not getting even fast enough.

Good luck pulling out of it man.

At what limit does the rake become less insane? It seems like microstakes players get pwned by it.

Student Caine 11-01-2007 07:30 PM

Re: ***uNL Microbrew Thread*** NOV 2007 (ot)
 
If you are playing limit the rake is an absolute killer. I once sat with a guy for an hour playing like .25/.50 HU. Neither of us topped off (i.e., we each bought in for like $50 and never rebought) and at the end of that hour we had some insanely low amount between us (like $90).

EDIT:

Duh, I never answered your question. As I recall the rake started getting more palatable at like 1/2...it has been a long time since I have played, but I remember breaking up from .5/1 to 1/2 and noticing a huge rake relief.

Well, I was just taking a shot, hoping to move up.. Guess not.

The only good thing about today is that I'll never have to see that FT lobby pop up whenever I close a table.
