The Bad Side of Aggresion - LAA!
Let me setup the night for you. I am down around $80. I am pissed. I move to a VERY fun table. Six sided. MDTERPS23, NYGHTCRAWLER and the most maniac fishie guy I have ever met zzzGolfer. The rest of my night pretty much goes like, wait for a hand, get called down by zzzGolfer, make my NUT whatever or even high pair, get capped by zzGolfer on every street. Find out he had a K2. I mean this guy went against me 20 times. Each pot was at least $50. According to Poker Tracker here are some hands:
$57.50 pot on a flopped flush
zzzgolfer shows [ 3h, 3c ] a pair of threes.
SirFWALGMan shows [ Kc, 7c ] a flush, king high.
$37.50 pot on 77 with a lot of high cards out there against his 22.
zzzgolfer shows [ 2c, 2h ] two pairs, nines and twos.
SirFWALGMan shows [ 7d, 7s ] two pairs, nines and sevens.
zzzgolfer shows [ Qh, Tc ] two pairs, queens and tens.
SirFWALGMan shows [ 9d, Ks ] a straight, ten to ace.
zzzgolfer shows [ 9h, 9c ] two pairs, kings and nines.
SirFWALGMan shows [ Qc, Qh ] a full house, Queens full of kings.
You get the idea. Sir Ended up $100+. I have barely ever seen pots this large in ½ especially 6 sided. It got to the point where I knew zzGolfers maniac style so well that I just had to call him to the river, and raise even when I did not have the NUTS. I was EXTREMELY aggressive for me against this guy because he paid off so well. Once he ran out of money he left the table. I believe he is used to people rolling over for him. It is why he plays this way. When he runs into someone who will not be run down he loses A LOT!
MDTERPS23 and NYGHTCRAWLER did not do as well. I was catching the right cards also. They were a lot of fun. We were chatting it up and having a GREAT time. Maximus Poker in my Blog Links suggests you only play 6 sided. Smaller pots but less suck outs and variance. I might try some more 6. The PT stats are 130.90 for ½ ten sided in 7500 hands. 149.01 for 6 sided in 624 hands. Obviously the data is skewed but hmmm.
Please leave me a note if you want to play tonight (Thursday) 9:00EST. Empire or Party Poker. SirFWALGman Private table. I will leave the password tomorrow if I get 8-10 responses.
