Alright, I had a really bad session a few days ago, so in an effort to help my game out, I figured writing out everything a blog would be helpful. Since that session, I’ve really rethought my entire game and stripped it down to the bare bones. I spent an entire day at work ignoring psychiatric patients and instead going over how to play different hands from different positions. Specifically, I spent a ton of time thinking about playing out of position (and decided I really need to knock that off) and playing hands with very bad reverse implied odds. Since that session, I’ve been playing well again and have been winning decently.
In poker news, it’s possible that pretty soon we’re all fucked. Great.
In my own personal news, I’m going to AC with a bunch of the +1 guys on Friday for Ryan’s bachelor party/excuse to drink and gamble. I’ll no doubt be giving a lot of stories from that, hopefully about big scores I made.
Personal news: congrats to one of my best friends Cir L’Bert and Jackie Masters on the birth of their baby, Eva Grace. Thank God she came out cute.
Hand of the day:
This was one of the worst calls I think I have ever seen in my poker life. Normally, I never go for a check-raise on the flop as the preflop raiser, but this guy was so damn aggressive that it was worth waiting him out forever waiting for this spot.
