General Poker Thread

This just a general thread for off-topic poker stuff; quick/simple line checks, "did i play this ok?" type hands, graphs, funny hands, random poker chat/questions/goals etc or any hands you want to share that probably don't warrant their own thread.

Cool, i'll get the ball rolling.

Same game i played horribly in from the other thread

Blinds are 100/200. I'm BB. Folded all the way around. I have 10,10.

SB Raises to 600, i raise to 1800, SB calls/

Flop comes 2,8,9 rainbow. SB goes all-in.

Ship it surely?

I had a past confrontation in the same game. He raised from early position and i was the only caller. He slowed down after the flop showed A,Q,6. I bet and he folded but showed.

He turned out to have 7,7 (i had A,Q)

Just so sick of poker right now. I really can't win anymore no matter what I do. I have tried nitting it up but usually end up going back to my normal Laggy game which I know is higher variance but just can't seem to win any allins anymore. I know one glarinly obvious stat below is really bad and thats won at SD but with the amount of times I'm getting outdrawn its hard to see how it could be any other way. 3-4 months ago I was taking shots at 400nl and even good 600nl games but since then I have just being moving down and down to the point were its barely worth playing. Just feel like giving it up at the moment. FML

Sick graph Digiman but on the plus side your ev adjusted winrate would be pretty decent so it really is just a case of grinding on through it. Embrace the variance, bound to be a big heater on the way hopefully!

@ Phantom Lord, any chance of getting the different categories for the hand histories like boards? e.g. online tourney>$50 etc.

@Jackyback, What levels you playing there, 1knl? good month?

I'm running above EV at the moment. Variance still owes me 8 buyins though, so it better hurry up and balance itself out more.

My tilted trips to 5/10 Triple Draw have been pleasantly rewarding. That is one soft game. I would say its eeeasssily beatable for 3 big bets to anyone who knows the basics. Pity the traffic is so poor. I'd make it my regular game if it ran more.

It helps to be running good, loose a dozen flips and that graph can easily be turned upside down lol.

Hey there. Quick general poker q: was at a live poker tournie at the weekend for the first time in ages and realised how rusty my thinking has become. Is it Harrington (1,2,3?) I need to be re-reading to catch up, or is there another, more recent, good book worth reading on live MTT strategy?

Thanks in advance.

Is there anything that has come out since then? It's been a few years since i looked at holdem books, but thought that something else might have emerged based on the thoughts of all the online MTT specialists.
