Donkey

Will I ever learn?

I spent part of today playing some $20 SnGs also trying to win a couple tokens then playing the Mookie. I'm working on other aspects of my game and for probably the 15th time I found myself asking why? How do you MTT specialists do it day after day?

Let's see 88 into 99, KK into AA twice, AQ into AK, a turned flush getting beat by a full house on the river, on and on it goes. I try playing tight nothing, I try loosening up nothing, I push a flush and OESD after the flop brick, its driving me insane.

Thoroughly frustrated and with an hour to kill before the Mookie I sit in a $1/2 game. Its takes 13 hands and I have $410. Oh well, at least I'll always have the cash games.

I guess it's a "to each his own" situation. Thankfully, there are enough games out there that we all have plenty of choices to go with what works for us. Hell if I really know what works for me right now, but I'm sticking to MTT's/SNG's for now...

Good gaming last night sir...tough running the KK into AA...

MTT's are a bitch sometimes. but, you have no chance of taking down a $5k plus score in a night of cash games. unless, you're playing 10/20 NL that is.

cash games/tourneys/sng's. play 'em all. that's the beauty of online poker.

Nothing can replace the adrenaline of a final table for a lot of money.... Scopping a $1000 pot is nice in a cash game, having the opportunity to take down some big money is priceless. You should try it more often :)

Cash is King...or at least that's what some guy in Vegas used to tell me :)

Tourneys are fun, but maddening.

Thanks for playing last night.

I don't get how folks can make money in cash games. I get my junk kicked nearly every time, no matter the level (from .05/.10 to .25/.50).

Nice ITM rate in SNGs, and holding my own in MTTs. But fuck, for the life of me, no matter what style I adopt, I can't win a ring game online (do reasonably okay live).

It's like Miami Don's mirror image.

Only time MTTs madden me is just missing bubble twice in a night after four hours of play...
