Zooming to victory!

Zoom poker has been very good to me lately. I've been modifying my game quite a bit lately and it has brought great success. Not only is my winrate better (10% less rake than before is not bad at all!) but i'm actually getting more VPP/hand than with the dealt method! Best of both worlds! Of course, running hot is always a plus (brag graph inc)  Tiny sample of course but hey, it sure beats a downswing! The number of times people stacked off top pair vs my sets in this sample is also pretty…See More

"Most 8/6 play fullstack since their strategy is pretty much overpair/setmine only. Most shortstackers play a 40bb game and essentially force a "preflop all-in" strategy in a lot of hands. Not only were they syphoning a lot of other…"

"8/6 shortstackers will even loose more than a 8/6 fullstacker i think? 8/6 is insanely tight... ssers are often way more loose since they shove way more. Init?"

"Not sure what you mean? Basically, a majority of these players were playing ultra-tight and/or shortstacking because they didn't know how to play "real" full-stacked poker. They had very marginal (or losing) winrates, and made most of…"

Back in the games after a 2 month poker vacation!

And it's good to be back! I've been very busy with RL these past 2 months, with my master's degree taking most of my time. A lot has a changed on Pokerstars lately, and that meant some good news and bad news for me personally.Of course, the worse news is the very significant VPP/hand drop. I'm down to about 0.18VPP/hand at 100NL, about 25% less than before. However, there have been a lot of significant benefits to these changes. First of all, they gave me an extra month to focus on getting…See More

M-m-m-m-m-m-m-monster year end session!

Another year, another Supernova. Lost it briefly in October (was at 93k VPPs when September ended) but after a few weeks of on-and-off, it was time to finish this Athene Grindmode Style!…

Poker can be a frustrating game, post-february results

Posted on May 5, 2011 at 4:43pm 8 Comments

My goal going forward this year is to hit 300k VPP with a >0.5ptBB/100 winrate at 100NL. If I can manage only that, I will consider the year satisfactory as far as monies accumulated. Fortunately, i'm currently on pace for that : 

 

 

However, it just feels like I could be doing so much better. I obviously have some big leaks, but I just can't seem to put my…

My highest volume month yet

Posted on May 3, 2011 at 4:40pm 4 Comments

 

While it's not much compared to sick grinders, 85k hands is my highest volume month since I started playing on Stars in Nov 09. Most of my months hovered around 30-50k, with the exception of December which was at 84k with the end of year Supernova chase. The big difference however is that in this case, there was no 20k sessions marathons (with horrible losses at the tables).

First two months recap, always keep improving

Posted on February 28, 2011 at 8:30pm 4 Comments

This year has been quite a rollercoaster to far, but in a good way. I'm glad I learned some valuable lessons the hard way in my first month so I could quickly kick myself and get my game back on track. I don't even know how my play degenerated so much in January. I started by running a bit bad, then I played more weak-tight, which worsened my results, which made me play even more weak-tight. The last session was a total trainwreck, enough that I had to take a break and figure out how my…
