Another Story of My HU

This time on CardPlayer.

WSOP Charity

And all that Razz!

PokerStars have recently Added Razz, HOSE, and HORSE cash games.

Guess what?

Most of the players are horrid!

Learn the games folks and take your money.

More proof that being a multi dimensional poker player makes you a better poker player.

Naked Magic

For those of you who enjoy naked French Magic

Winning at The Wynn

I've played the last few days at the $1-$3 NLHE cash game at The Wynn for the last few days.

At times it has seemed too much like work, but at other times it has been quite amusing.

I started last nite deep in the hole and then rapidly dug out out and hit the front after flopping sets and getting ridiculous action from players who couldn't rlease AA. WHAT A COUNTRY!

Notes:
1) The $1-$3 game is uncapped. Early in my session last nite a guy sat down with $11k. It was amusing in that every time he wanted to set smeone allin he just threw a $5K stack into the middle of the pot.

2) Old time grinders stil clearly have problems adjusting to NLHE cash. They mostly fall in love with their AA or KK or top pair.

3)The Wynn has a quite nice poker room, but much like The Bellagio room (post renovation), I think the lighting levels are too low.

4) It's hotter than hot in Las Vegas right now!

Plundered at Treasure Island

Spent an afternoon at Treasure Island getting "explored" by other players.

KK into AK NO GOOD.

KK into JJ Good.

Everything else into anything NO GOOD!


Retreat to the hotel room for some online exploits.
Boring! Everything I won in cash parlayed into tournaments and found no result.

NOT Leaving Las Vegas

I've decided to stick around for about another week to shake the cash game tree for a little more profit. Without the distraction of the 5 ring WSOP circus I should be able to focus a bit more.

Yum Yum! Why is the standard in these small NLHE games so poor? Hmmmmm. I don't really care as long as it stays poor :P

Solid Gold

For 5 days straight Jaime Gold dominated the biggest and most important poker tournament in the world.

His form didn't change at the final table and he sailed to victory knocking out 7 of his last 8 opponents.

Well done.!

I'm Still Here!

Sorry folks for the radio silence.
I've been attacking the cash games for long stretches with success.

I have been cataloging numerous amusing stories and experiences.

Standby for further posts.
