Yeah 1/2.....Building the proverbial "roll." lol

If was truly rolled for it, I would play higher in a heartbeat. 

What kind of roll do you need to move up?


10k is my goal  20 500 buy ins 15k for 500 max plo

That is going to take a while to get to at $2/hr.  I play 2/5 and only have a roll of 5K.  I guess technically my roll could be considered higher but the 5K is in my "poker fund" but if that ever ran out I could jump into the bank account.  May be worth considering the jump in stakes to help increase your hourly.

On paper, I can understand that. But the 1/2 games at my closest room play pretty big with the straddles and the unlicensed phramacists who show up with cash to burn. My style at first wasnt very optimal for those games. I handnt played live for about 8 years at that point. 

I can count on one hand where I was genuinely outplayed versus the hundreds to thousands on pokerstars. 

But yes, if my winrate just hovers at 2 dollars/hr for an extended period of time 2021+ is 2/5 time lol. Correct math doesn't lie LOL

 

FF draft is over, off to Planet Hollywood for 7-8 hrs

That makes sense.  Love the folks in cash heavy businesses that think they are hot shit on the poker table.

Well...last tuesday was bad. I lost a 700 pot when I tried to steal a 20 straddle with my 100 open at planet hollywood when I picked up 77 to a dumbass raising 90% of his hands. He apparently wasn't folding and neither was I. He turned over KJo preflop. 

He flopped a jack and made runner runner broadway unnecessarily. 

When I was dealing with that guy on my left. I was playing against guys with Caesar Diamond cards peddling the nuts for their noodle bar comps. I lost 770 that night. :( 

Good news is I've been slumming it and found the easy games. The bad news is that they don't run 24/7. I left a full table at Binion's to go to the bathroom. 5 minutes later, I come back to an empty table. 

It really has gotten to a point where no one has a "bad" card room (maybe excalibur lol),  The Strat poker room got relocated upstairs until remodeling is done. Its so out of the way, no one except hotel guests and locals blowing their booze money play it. 

So I am back to even and I have 6 days to go.

I hate the psychopath players.  Can't fold a hand to save their life.  Maybe go hit the Bellagio and play 2/5 there.  $500 max buyin so you can't get hurt too bad.  I am going to be in Denver next week and plan on getting some poker in Tuesday night.  Can't wait.

I've been hitting the Strat 1/2 game for as long as it goes. I pulled another 200 after winning 2 big hands over 5 hours. I can't imagine finding an easier game. 

 

If I want to find out how "good" I am again, I'll grind micro stakes online. lol

It's not about how good you are or aren't.  You can make some decent profit in those games if you play with solid fundamentals.

Hey, I forgot all about you/this. I just started a new job this week and was preparing for it all last week. So I wouldn't really have had time. 

But this coming weekend, you're still here?

Have you played at the Aria yet? That's my favorite for low stakes.

We have a local card room I've never played in and I think I'm going to give it a run on Friday. But I suspect because there are so few card games available in the area, it's not going to be a super easy game.

We have terrible poker here. Cash tables are $100 max bet. The tournaments can be okay, be sure to check the blind structure before you jump into a game. Golden Gates Poker Parlour if you plan on playing a tournament, Ameristar if you want to play a cash game.

$100 max bet?  Does that mean I can bet $100 and then get raised a max of $100?  Or is it $100 max per street?

I  am assuming 2-100 spread limit. With 100 being the max bet and limit rules applying. So you theoretically can get it all in every hand.

12 people? That's less than I would have expected. It goes quick. 30 minutes maybe.
