I actually played a little bit of poker last night. Fun times. I flamed out of the Mookie on a flush draw vs AA. Actually was surprised to see Columbo show a hand as strong as Aces since he normally would re-raise there. The flop was perfect for me with a flush draw, and some straight outs and some chance that Columbo folds a weaker hand in that spot. Unfortunately for me no crubs. Lies all lies!
I then started four SNGs. I have decided to try and multi-table these for a while. I think I lose a ton in skill but volume is where it is at online. I have bowed to the collective wisdom of the push monkeys, the Suckos, the any A LJay style of play. Skill has gotten me nowhere so I will join the ranks.
The first nights results were 1-3 with a third place finish for a net loss. I got in bad once with AJ s000ted vs AK. I jammed a guy deep with AK and he flipped up QT for his entire stack. Brilliant players. He of course hit trip tens by the time the hand was over. I jammed a guy with AQ and he called with Q7 unsuited again for a huge portion of his stack. I lost this one too. The one I took third in I nursed my stack to the final three.. then overLJayed my A3 against his TT on a 3J5 flop. He considered folding to my jam but made the right call.
I am going to try and get in at least four games a night and see how that goes for a while. The eventual idea will be to play more tables. Again I hate that I can not get any reads and have to play ABCDull poker but then again against strangers my reads can suck anyway. I really get into my game against known entities. We shall see how this goes. Perhaps I will be able to fifteen table like that Donkey Kong dude pretty soon.
