  1. Running HOT

    Iím having a great week playing tournaments, Iím so close to getting even online I can taste it. Playing my aggressive, raise with anything in position style has proven to be much more valuable than my prior tight ABC approach. I canít picture myself ever getting away from this style. Raise after, raise makes your opponents easy to manipulate and easier to read. At the same time itís easier for them to play back at you so at times I use ďcontrolled aggressionĒ and it shows with my multiple cashes ...
  2. Monkey cash

    Analysis of my poker playing skill through my Poker Manager app has shown me my cash game win rate is significant lower than my tournament win rate so naturally Iíve kept a distance from cash games. Lately Iíve been running bad in tournaments, something like the 0-15 in 12 days so I decided to try something different. My bread and butter are low to mid stake tournaments but with running and playing so bad Iíve been strictly playing freerolls, bad thing is they run every two hours. Iíve been trying ...

  3. Jermain the donkey

    I suck. Well not really, Iím kind of running bad and this new super aggressive style that Iím playing is causing me to swing more wildly. Iím not going to make excuses for myself, losing has made me play like an idiot and Iíve resorted to making desperate plays at times.

    Thank god for freerolls because Iím currently in 9 tournament losing streak, luckily Iíve stuck to a strict bankroll management plan and Iíve entered plenty of freerolls. Iíve lost 4 buy-ins this week bringing my ...
  4. Turning the corner

    Iíve always promoted playing a tight aggressive style but lately Iíve been deploying an extremely loose aggressive style. Iíve been playing position making raises and reraises with any two cards and the second I sense weakness in my opponents I usually move in on them. This style is extremely dangerous and I do not suggest playing or using it unless your very confident in youíre reading abilities. This style is very high risk, very high rewardÖ.

    Iíve played 8 tournaments this week, ...
  5. Focus on the Prize

    Poker is just one long session. Make the right decision and in the long run youíll show a profit, let the cards the fall where they may. You cant control the outcome of the cards, all you can control is how you play the cards youíre dealt. Itís a pretty simple way to live by, the hard part is retaining your focus and discipline in high pressure situations and times of great despair when all seems lostÖÖBut never give up, I fucken repeat never give up. Ever.

    I didnít have a great week ...
