Nothing Special Poker

First off I wish Felicia a speedy recovery back to full health.


Spent the last couple sessions back at $3/$6. Nothing has changed much. Same bad play as before, just the suck outs cost more. I think the play at this level is worst than some of the lower limits. Makes sense though, this is about the normal level for most casinos so I assume this is the level most go to that play at casinos. Still clearing Absolute Poker so I do see some of the guys from the $2/$4 that I used to play with that have moved up. Thats cool because I have notes on them.

Not much to post about, been in a holding pattern this week. A little above even with no spectacular wins or loses to report. Been kinda of boring.


I have noticed poker is at a frenzied pace right now. In Virginia, the lottery now has a Texas Holdem game, my wifes new favorite show, Desperate Housewifes, playing poker this week. Commercials? They are everywhere now on cable. Saw a new one for last night. I saw the $9.99 chip sets at Auto Zone over the weekend! NBC has a pilot for a show based on Annie Duke even. Everywhere you look now people are trying to cash in.

At the tables you can see it also. I think sometimes if people would just transfer money to other players it would be easier. I know people play poker for all kinds of reasons but come on. Maybe I am just noticing more lately. What I understand even less is that people are calling the river bet with missed draws! Chasing a gut shot to the river, chasing your hand that if it hits will be second best, chasing your A high, chasing runner runner, ect. With the quality of players out there, this happens, BUT to call a river bet from a player that has bet you every round and you have missed! Makes no sense.

I'm not complaining though, I make a living off these players. Sure when they suck out it hurts but that is temporary. I'm not the best poker player out there by no means but I am in the top 3 at my table. If I'm not, I move. So I am confident I will come out in the long run.

Not bad ramblings from a guy who is break even for the week!

Till Next Time!
