February 2010 Ramblings

Ok ok! I'm gonna start posting again. Been long enough and I think it will help my play. Zeppies poker room is doing really good and we have been really busy. But, still have time to put in a few seesions every now and then. Plus, online is always available. I am really not sure where I am at since my last post. Should be up though. Had some good sessions in Missoula, and haven't taken any big losses in my own game. And online has been ok. So, here we go again!

I Run Bad
I Run Bad. I've been running sooo bad lately, its sick. I know that now that I'm playing alot more than I ever have, and it's bound to happen. That's why I keep plugging away, and that's why I started keeping this blog. I know I have holes in my game(over playing premium preflop hands, when if I stop and think about the hand, I'm clearly not good anymore), but overall I think I'm a good player. Just need some fine tuning.
This is how my typical 6-8 hour sessions have been going for me lately. When I first sit down, I get some decent to good cards, win some pots(although nothing too big, as everyone is trying to feel me out) build up a good table image and I go up a bit, maybe even double up over a few hours. Then I go ridiculously card dead. I don't necessarily stop getting good starting hands. I still get small-medium pocket pairs, suited connectors, sometimes even aq. So I play it properly(for the most part) preflop, either a limp, a raise, whatever. The flop completely misses my hand. If I raised, I will often cbet it, but I get called(or raised) and I'm done. Then after a few hours, I start picking up some pots again(not always having the hands to do so), and I will get a premium hand. Not always Aces or Kings, sometimes its a pathetic preflop hand, but I'll flop huge, and I get so enamored with my holding that I stop playing poker and trying to figure out what other people could have. I think I have top two pair, it has to be good! So I get it all in, either by my betting, or calling, and I'm busto.
I know I need to start bluffing more, but it's hard when I'm so short stacked. Maybe I need to start buying in for $200 again. That would leave me with enough behind that there's a threat of another bet on the next street if I get called.
I need to start taking stabs at these limped pots. Up til now, I've shown no interest in the pots with just $10 in them, because I shouldn't bet more than the pot size, and for a bet so small it's bound to get called. But if I get caught trying to steal small pots for small bets, maybe I'll get more action with my big hands.
I also need to stop checking the flop. I check it when I hit a big hand, which is natural, but I check it probably 85% of the time. I never bet at a paired board(even if I have trips), and I think it's cost me some money.
All in all, I need some work on my game, but I'm very frustrated right now. Both with the way the cards are going for me, and how I'm playing them.

Looking forward to playing again tomorrow when acct reopens at 5:30. Although i did play some over the past week, it was not nearly as much as ususal so it was a semi-break. Whatever I won playing under friends name I went ahead and lost, couldn't transfer to blocked account. I'm also setting my profile to private again, may change it back to public at a later time. Check out my friends blog, much better player who wins ALOT more than anyone I know or have ever met. He's on here, under hedz-up, if interested. Probably wont be talking to him anytime soon, after making a couple inappropriate comments he decided to put me on his ignore list. I forget he is in love with someone other than me, and prbly a virgin. He plays poker all of his waking hours, and part of the reason i play is because that is what hes doing and where he's at. But I met someone who might be able to handle my commets, who runs Hot- just starting to play real money a couple weeks ago, played fake tables first, shows Ace 2 star on topshark and 65 ability on scope, cool guy plays under OMG_P_Rick check him out. Likes to grind micro-limit SNGs. Good luck to him! hopefully patrick will cut the bullshit and chill out and stop ignoring me. I need him.
Playing 11 Tables at same time!

As of right now I will not play for 7 days. Excluded myself from playing for a week. If I was really smart I would not EVER come back or write another one of these stupid blogs, tracking my penny wins. Fuck it! FUCK POKER and especially F-U-C-K POKERSTARS in their ass! They can eat a dick and like it!!!!!!!! until next time ......... if there is a next time. Lisa
