Misplay of the Day: Sub Optimal Mentality = No Tough Laydowns


I’ve been playing a lot of Zoom Poker on PokerStars since it was released. They’ve recently introduced the $1/$2 and $2.5/$5 limits and I’ve been having a pretty rough time since after crushing 100nl for a few weeks. I’ve been running terrible, but sometimes only have myself to blame. I think the hand below illustrates what I am talking about, I could just dismiss it by saying “oh I got flush over flushed for 100bb, […]


AKs Flops Flush Draw on 654, Gets Potted Into, Deepish

I have registered to play in the PokerStars World Blogger Championship of Online Poker! The WBCOOP is an online Poker tournament open to all Bloggers. Registration code: 609016 Villain is 39/20/3.5 over 143 hands, we are $281 deep. Didn’t particularly feel sexy about raising and stacking off on the flop, but thoughts on that would be appreciated. Hadn’t seen the villain take a line like this and the couple of pots I played against him […]

Anyway… what range are you putting him on here and what action do […]

Folding […]


Royal Flush Greater Than Straight Flush

So this hand was pretty sick… I mean I have no idea what the guy was doing pre-flop, but a pretty nice river card for my obviously. My second royal flush for the year that I can remember. Poker Stars $1/$2 No Limit Hold’em – 9 players The Official 2+2 Hand Converter Powered By UTG: $251.05 Hero (UTG+1): $215.55 UTG+2: $442.80 MP1: $107.00 MP2: $121.80 CO: $200.00 BTN: $40.00 SB: $98.00 BB: $50.00 Pre […]
