i'm pretty much done with limit poker so maybe i'll post the chart sometime?
I will raise K7 suited on the button to steal the blinds. It's well above average and that's a +EV play.

After a single limper, it's fine to either raise it as an isolation play or call it hoping to get a 4 way pot. It would be bad to fold it.

After a couple of limpers, I'd just call with it.

After a raise, I would fold it unless the raiser has an extremely wide range, in which case it's a 3-bet.

I don't like hand charts very much. This is a great example of a hand that can go up or down in value in different situations. The real value here comes from the position on the button.

losing never gets old where the sand turns to gold......

ok poker fans we're back with another exciting trip to america's playgroud, the place where the sand turns to gold..... wonderful ATLANTIC CITY!!

it's a relaxing and uneventful drive down to the shore and despite the fact that i've spent the year getting cards that would make a pauper out of phil ivey i try to keep my thoughts positive.

eventually i arrive at spectacular bally's by the beach. it's 1:00 am you would think i could just check right in at that time but of course this is the proximity poker tour. the diamond line waits and waits and waits as an ugly couple tries the difficult task of checking into a hotel room.

eventually i get to the desk and 30 seconds later i'm sent to an interesting little suite in the curtis on the bay tower. i don't really need a bar, a jacuzzi, and multiple bathroom sinks..... but hey, i'll take it!

for tonight at least, i'm a winner!

tomorrow: cards in air.

Thud!

That was the sound of a -$339 session of 1/2 NL at Charles Town races after 10 hours of play.

It was inevitable, I had been on a roll the past 2.5 months with something like 10 winning sessions out of 14. Hopefully this thud is short-lived.

My to-date results are:

Hours Played = 195
Session Wins/Losses = 27/17
Net (Excluding promotions) = + $453
Net (Excluding promotions) Hourly = + $2.32
Promotions/Comps = $400 + ~ $5

While not satisfied, I am still pleased with my results. Of course my results could still be largely due to luck. It is nice to have a few extra dollars after playing a game and challenge I enjoy, but a reasonable person would see this as folly.

Some day just to be different I might make my first visit ever to the Penn National poker room. Without a doubt the first order of business SHOULD be to learn what this fellow "the lion" looks like for the purpose of bankroll preservation! I recall being introduced to him something like 7 years ago, and I don't think the encounter lasted more than 30 seconds.

To borrow a phase used by James "Split Suit" Sweeney, Happy Grinding!

the lion (77-18 season) doesn't have a face you should forget but i'll give you a pass since i think the lights actually went out the night you met him at pen?

if you do go to pen, hopefully you're far down 81 s with some extra $$$ by the average hour that insomniac's been arriving at the card room.
