It has been hard to play any Poker this weekend! The wife had us go to a Car Show tonight. It was pretty good. Too much like car shopping though. I looked at a sweet BMW. I could never drive a BMW. Why? Because everyone who drives one is an ass-hole! The only reason people buy them is to say "I drive a beamer". I equate this to SAAB and a few other brands also. Althought BMW is the height of the list.
** DISCLAIMER: IF you drive a BMW and are not an asshole then I appologise, every model has a small amount of variance.
The wife want's a new car I think. I told her to wait a year and we can go buy one for cash out of my Poker winnings! Now that is a goal!
I played two short sessions. I had trouble finding any free tables at 5/10. The_Venitian had mentioned this as a problem. I had not seen it until today. So I played two tables of 3/6, and ended up a little. I was playing how you are supposed to play: AGGRESIVE! I went down to $44 on one table, and then brought it all the way back to about $75 profit. The other table was even all night, went down a bit, and I ended up even.
I then played some 5/10-6 Handed tonight. It was fun. It threw my VP$IP stats out the window, because you cannot wait as much, but I made a few bucks. The six sided tables move fast. You lose alot quickly and you win alot quickly. I may be forced to learn this game because it is WEAK! Everyone playing A3! Jesus! Do these people not know why we do not play J3? Because when you get outkicked you lose ALOT of money!
I have set a goal for myself of making $250 a night once I start playing two tables of 5/10. I think it is reasonable. It is also a nice paycheck! It is not the kind of goal where I am going to tilt off trying to make that much, but it will be my yardstick for judging if I am beating the game on a nightly basis. I think it is VERY possible to do, and I may need to reasses this later. Going to catch an hour of TV with the wifey and get some sleep. Good cards to you all .. unless your on my table!
** UPDATE: I just checked my Aggression stats and I am becoming less of a wimp. It does not seem like it, but my 5/10 stats so far have me up .30 from my normal .89 rating to a whopping 1.1, and my 5/6-6 Max stats are 1.39! Yikes! Perhaps I am learning how to play this game right! Nahhhhh.
