Happy Holidays and Poker

It is the Friday before Christmas and the office is dead. They gave the choice of taking today or Tuesday off from Christmas Eve so I took Tuesday. Anyway, I hope everyone out there has a wonderful holiday season.

Not a whole lot today. As you could see from my late night post I did well in the Riverchasers HORSE tourney last night. The thing that I n noticed is that while many of the players were decent hold’em players, many of them had no idea how to play the stud events. I made most of my chips playing RAZZ and STUD and held my own in the other games. I guess this makes sense considering so many players want to play the TV game and don’t realize how playing these other games will make them a better overall player. I believe that it would be dumb to ignore this fact and I will continue to play more RAZZ and HORSE tourneys to exploit this situation. Well exploit is a strong word coming from me so I guess I should say try to exploit.

I played a $1 sng last night to kill some time and played it aggressively. With 4 players left the SB made a move on my BB with a 3x raise. I had chips but I knew it was a steal so I pushed with my 47 off suit to get him to fold. He calls with K5. Great call buddy cuz the only person you’re ahead off is a bluffer. Anyway, I spike a 4 and a 7 and knock him to about 100 chips with my great hand. That but me in the money and where I got knocked out pushing with A4 and getting called by AQ. So, between my 2 games I made $1.45 after getting my buy-in back. It’s always about +EV.

I found this for JJ. It’s something he can look forward to in the future.

Again, Happy Holidays to everyone.
