A Tale of Two Buyins

300 Hands / +1BI / .5 Hours

I have decided to include hand histories with my explanations of hands. It will make things less confusing. Although it is more fun scratching your head and trying to figure out what the hell I am saying. I am doing this because a new commenter possibly new reader named Hellblood is always like "wtf?" in my comments. Apparently he thinks this is a poker blog.

I start off good with a standard double up with AA vs QQ. I then decide to bluff the fuck out of this hand. Occasionally I should be smarter and not bluff as much. However I think the poker gods like when I bluff. Originally I felt bad about spewing off on a bluff but I think that is a bad mentality. I was sort of right that he had a weakish hand. I just did not realize he would not fold. If you never bluff though your doing it wrong and when you bluff you will get caught on occasion. Show Hand

on that buyin anyways.

So I fired it up again and hit a mad rush of cards. Actually what I hit was a mad rush of situations. Cards do not matter at all. It is having those cards hit when people have reasonably strong hands.

I think in this hand

my opponent slow play no pay. Well it paid me. Glad the straight hit and not the flush. I hit gutters like a motherfucker.

Love me some German money

. Set over set is always awesome. I thought he could have a straight but I had outs and I decided if he had the monster than so be it. I think he has the straight maybe 10-15% of the time. Since he is German. SO I went for it.

So that is a tale of two buyins. One I made a few wrong moves and did not get lucky, the other I got really lucky to hit big hands when my opponent had strong hands also. As a side note I am going to play around with the DIV tags a little today, so will probably republish this post a lot, and figure out how to make them jump better. I like putting the hand history in a tag so you can optionally see the hands. If anyone wants some help implementing something like that let me know.

Hey, I'm a new reader! Nice blog, and the shit about Nick, your wife and the au pair is priceless.

I saw that you bluff people out a lot on Rush Poker... I'll give that another go.

Any bluffing tips about Rush, like bet sizing?

Waffles I thought you may have improved at poker then I actually click on the 1st hand and can see that you are still terrible.

How the fuck can you justify calling off a third of your stack with ducks pre-flop?

Is there a remedial math course you can take at a local Jr. High School to improve your math skills?

+1 bayne. Oh and how are you not topping up so that when you do hit quads (and don't have to call off 1/3 pre) you get paid.

runner runner straight ftw

I know your not very bright Schaubs but dude flops trips. Dude does not do ANYTHING to protect his hand. Dude then pays me off with a full 1.5 stacks on the river when I am way ahead. How in any stretch of the imagination is that a bad play on my part?

3 barreling that 96 hand is pretty bad dude, the K on the turn is about the worst card that could have come, gotta cut your losses at that point.

I got confused trying to figure out where the HHs were when I clicked the links, cool feature though.

Hi, wow! I am feeling so proud you included HH just for bloody old Hell!
I am very busy right now but need to look at it in detail soon. This feature with HH looks really cool.
