$10-$20 Day at game online terlengkap


One common misconception about game online terlengkap is that the tightness of your opponents increases as you increase limits. The actual truth of the matter is that at most online cardrooms the $10-$20 limit is much looser than the $5-$10. This is partially compensated by trickier players.

My first session I ended up down 12.5 BB (buy in = 50BB) playing very solid cards. In most cases I was making the right plays and getting outdrawn. I don’t think I made a single straight or flush draw during this session, including a monster (pair + open ended straight + flush) draw.

After breakfast it was back at the tables, and I’m sorry to say I lost my temper and berated someone. The final board was a Broadway straight with very little money in the pot heads up and my opponent bet into me thereby increasing the size of the pot enough to increase the rake by $1. Of course if there were no rake it would always be correct to make this play on the 1 in 100 chance that your opponent will throw away their cards when the nuts are on the board, and even though I don’t think his play here was a money maker in that it increases the rake 100% but the pot was only about $50 before the bet and at the $10-$20 limit your opponent isn’t even going to drop this 1 time in 100, maybe 1 time in 1000 while drunk and getting a lap dance. Still the bottom line is that mistake or not it’s not a reason to call someone a moron, so my apologies to this player. The emotional side really is the hardest part to control—and not just for Phil Hellmuth.

Now were blogging!

Google has released an add-on for Microsoft Word that lets you write blog entries directly from inside Word (instead of using the sometimes frustrating web interface from the http://www.blogger.com/ web site). So now that it’s more convenient to blog there should be some more blog entries here. If you use blogger you can get this free add on at http://buzz.blogger.com/bloggerforword.html.

Contrary to last month, this month has been really good in the online poker arena. Playing at limits from 5-10 to 50-100 (50-100 is a definite stretch) I’ve managed to keep this month at about +10bb/100 hands overall to the tune of about $5000 up so far for the month. Besides the cards hitting me (which they have, but not to any supernatural level) I attribute this month to two things—Poker Tracker and the work I’ve been doing on my own loose card tilting. The one limit where I’m losing money (surprise) is $50-$100, and without that game I’d be up about $7500.

Poker Tracker (You can get a copy here) is a tool that imports hand histories from all major online poker sites and analyzes them. When playing at UltimateBet they have a utility available for download called UltimateHistory which will automatically request and save the hand history after each hand you play, and another utility written by a third party (and free) called GameTime Plus which gives you a heads up display of statistics for yourself and everyone at your table (naturally you can only see the hands your opponents have been in while you’ve been sitting at a table with them, but it does pull up statistics for all previous sessions where you may have played against them).

Instantly it tells you who is seeing too many hands and a basic idea of how they play the game (aggressive/passive before and after the flop and loose/semi-loose and tight). Armed with this information I was able to tighten myself up a few more percent and adjust my play vs my opponents on several occasions thanks to the information on the hud.
