I had a weird time at cash the other night and thought I would write my experiences and get some feedback. I did see Skiddoo lose a little money with 55. Fuels hand. Fools gold baby.
Anyway I was pretty frustrated last night as I kept running into sets with good strong top pairs. I obviously overplayed them in my MTTs but still frustrating.
So I sit at a 50/NL table and lose a few small hand. I then type to the table "*TILT* I HAVE HAD IT! I AM ON SUPER MEGA TILT! I AM JAMMING THE NEXT HAND". So the next hand comes and it is a nice 25o and I jam my entire stack in and the table folds. So I am chuckling a little. So I say "In four hands I am jamming my whole stack in!". So I wait four hands and see 63o. I announce to the table it is hand four and I am jamming ATC.. and I jam and they all fold and I show. I then notify the table I am giving them a break for 15 minutes and will jam all in at exactly 10:57. So I wait and some dude raises 1.50 in EP at 10:57 and I jam and he folds. Even though I announced that I was jamming. I show my A9o. I felt for sure he was going to call. So by now the table thinks I am a total donkey, not a bad assumption. A funny thing happens though. I get into a hand with a OESD and Flush draw. I make my flush. I jam the draw then the made hand and I get paid. I double up. Then I flop two pair and jam. A guy with an OESD calls my all in saying "Ok, I will gamble with you". He was expecting six more outs but I had him drawing to 8 on the flop and 6 on the turn since I picked up a flush draw.
So anyway I end the session up 1.5 buyins. I was up almost 2 buyins at one point. It seemed to me that my prior actions and a little luck sucking out with 17+ outs (I only made my OESD+Flush+Overcards hands one of three times) and some aggressive play made the table much more willing to call off my big bets with weaker hands. In the hand where I made the flush the guy only had a pair of nines. I already mentioned the draw hand.
So the interesting thing here besides me actually winning in cash. I find often times I can not get any action on my big hands. Mostly because people respect my play for some stupid reason or something like that. I do sometimes play a really tight game. So are there ways to generate action? Like Doyle said "You have to give action to get action". Is jamming in and showing a bad hand or calling down with a third pair for a small pot going to loosen up your table? Do you run a bluff and get caught? What methods can you use to make your table go insane?
Normally when I play cash I might win a buyin or a partial buyin. A few times like last night I see the table go crazy and I want to be able to manipulate that. The majority of the times I have made multiple buyins Fluxer has been at my table. Either winning the buyins from him or via transference where the table thinks everyone is a donk because one person is playing overly donkishly.
Any comments or suggestions. I would like to win multiple buyins more often. It is fun.
