I managed to get a quick game in today.

 

6 seater $2 sitngo.  The first 2 players were knocked out fairly quickly by one guy who seemed to think he owned the table.

 

I played tight and was dumping most hands.  I got dealt KK so I raised to 7x the BB and the guy who knocked the earlier players called me.  Flop came down K95 and 2 of the cards were clubs.  Rather than let someone in cheaply to hit the flush, I just went all in and the guy that called my raise called too.  He showed 99 in his hand so we both had trips and neither of us had a club which was a relief.  The only card he could win with was the other 9.  Turn came - Q and river was a 4.  So that was a nice easy double up for me.

 

He said "FY" which I took to be totally rude...and I replied "yeah thanks for that".  I thought Im not getting into a slanging match so I left it at that.

 

The game goes on and on and on.  I knocked out one of the other players with a straight flush. He was betting into me and I had 910hearts.  Flop was JKhearts 9c. He bet I just flat called.  Turn comes Qhearts - he bet, I flat called.  River - can't even remember what it was..I was so excited about my straight flush.  He went all in, I called and he showed a pair of kings and he was out of the game.

 

This left 3 of us and after a few hands the guy was out.  This left the one that said "FY" and me.

 

I took the lead, then he took the lead and this went on for a while.  I was then dealt Q9 suited and I just flat called.  He checked being the big blind.  Flop comes down Q25 so I bet and he flat called.  Next card was a 5 so I just went all in and he hesitated for a long time.  Eventually at the last second he called.  He showed KK and that was the end of me.  River was nothing useful. 

 

It was a good game but just a big shame that I didnt beat the rude guy.  Still doubled my money and that was ok by me.

Cashing in "any" tourney is always good blue, to bad you couldn't take out Mr. "FY", and a straight flush!!!!!! those don't often.

 

WTG on cashing blue.

A few more bucks to play a few more games.

Just played a sitngo at Poker Time (trying to get the points up) and unbelievably I actually won.

 

I was dumping everything that was rubbish and chucking even the "reasonable" hands.  One person had virtually posted and folded the whole game to ensure a paying position.  I knocked one out and someone else knocked another one out which left 3 of us - the bluffer - the poster and folder and me.

 

They both kept stealing my blinds and I was just waiting for the right hand to come along.  And boy did it come along.

 

I had pocket Q's.  Bluffer raises and poster/folder guy and myself just flat call.  Flop comes 592.  I was first to act so I bet over the pot and the bluffer calls me.  Next card is a J so I though I would just go all in as there was the makings of a straight on the table.  Bluffer calls me and shows JA.  River helps neither of us and I win the hand which was a nice stack builder and leaving the bluffer with not too many chips.

 

Bluffer continues to steal blinds and betting ridiculously trying to build his stack back up. I think he was down to about 700 and he got it up to about 1500 or thereabouts. 

 

The game goes on and sweet joy - pocket AA for me.

 

I was the big blind too which is a marvellous position to be in - bluffer min raises, "post and folder" calls so I raised 4xBB which made it 750/800 or thereabouts.  Bluffer calls and the other guy folds.

 

Flop comes down 792.  I went all in.  Bluffer calls.  There was me thinking he would have 79 off or something stupid.  He had 44.  Neither the turn nor the river were of any use to him and he was out.

 

So this just left me and the poster/folder who was no longer posting and folding.  He kept going all in every hand to steal the blinds from me and I just bided my time.

 

I played a couple of hands and won them and won back the chip leadership.

 

Im big blind and I have pocket 5s.  Other guy goes all in so I just called.  He showed A9 suited (diamonds).

 

Flop comes down 442 (two were diamonds) giving him the flush draw.  I thought, here we go again.  Turn is a 3.  I thought please dont give me my 5 and no diamonds please.  Fortunately for me it was an 8 or something like that. 

 

I won the game and a few bucks so I can play a few more.

 

It was all the more satisfying because my luck on that fishy site has been totally dire.

 

I'll see how it goes from here.

Every time I tried to play on PKR my computer blue screened.  Anwyay - I got me a snazzy new laptop and I managed to download PKR and voila - it worked.

 

Now this site is one of the bad RNG sites as we all know and I thought...well maybe its changed.  Well it hasn't.

 

I sat down at a play money table first to see how things were.  It was quite a good game and most players were actually playing properly...except one.  This fish was chucking his chips in on any hand and he kept winning with his rubbish.

 

Anyway - I was dealt KK and there were 3 of us left.  I raised big and the fish called.  Flop comes down JQA and knowing how he was playing, I thought I have to be in the lead here so I just went all in and he called.  He showed his hand 57 off suit so he had nothing. 

 

Turn comes - 5

 

River comes - 7

 

Ye gods - knocked out by a fish who had 7 high after the flop.  Nothing has changed on there but I did enjoy the game.  I also played a big freeroll which you can buy into with your points that you earned on the site.  It was a pretty good game and I think I placed in the 100's but no cash win.  That was a bad beat too.

 

I don't know who penned the phrase but I think its so true...

 

"If you can't beat em - join em".

 

I may have to change my tactics!

I played a 6 seater sitngo at PKR - my favourite site to play on because of the amazing graphics.

 

I didnt play too many hands and the players were being knocked out one by one with their stupid fishy calls - gut shot straight draws, flush draws etc.

 

I had only played and won about 3 hands and there were 2 of us left.  So I was definitely in the money. 

 

We played a couple of hands and the other player kept raising my BB to steal.  As a poker player, there are only so many times that I will take it and then I fight back.  I was dealt QK and from the state of the hands the other guy had been playing, I thought it was a great hand heads up and decided to steal the big blind from him so I min raised.  He raised me.  So I raised him back.  He raised me again and I thought, thats it, I'm all in.

 

So I chucked all my chips in the pot, he calls and sods law - he had KK.

 

Flop comes down 9J2. Turn 7.

 

I'm thinking the only card that can save me is the 10. 

 

River 10.  OMG - I don't often get poker RNG's to work in my favour but being the underdog with the worst hand, I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

 

This left him with only a few chips.  I was dealt KJ suited.  So I put him all in and he called.  I think he had something like 35 off.  I hit my K on the river and finished him off.

 

Now bearing in mind I've not been able to play on PKR for quite some time because my computer blue screened everytime I loaded it up (since bought a laptop and its all ok on there), when I won this game I'm standing up and all this paper stuff is falling down and my arms are up in the air like "the champion".  It was pretty awesome and I want some more of that.

It's nice to be on that end once in a while, seems like we are always on the end that gets screwed over by the river.

 

Nice win blue.

I managed to squeeze in a game last night  - just a $3 sitngo but it was a turbo game.  I'm not very good at turbo games because I try to play only good hands.  So I'm posting and folding the tons of rubbish that is "my hand" and I'm thinking, how much longer before I get something.

 

By this time a couple of people have been knocked out and finally, I get a reasonable hand.  The blinds are 150/75 and I've got pocket queens AND I'm big blind.  There were a couple of callers and when it came to me, I raised to 450 and everyone folded.  Makes you wonder what sort of rubbish they are calling with.

 

Anyway, next hand I have AA.  "Sods law" is what I thought - its like waiting for a bus, you hang around forever and then suddenly two come at once!  This hand I'm small blind and the guy who is BB is a bit of a calling station.  One person called and another raised to 750.  I raised to 2250 and everyone else folds (even the calling station) but not the raiser.  He decides he's going all in so I called him with the few chips I had left.

 

Before the flop comes down - he has typed "I hope you have AK".  Eh - what's that all about then.  Anyway he shows 99 and I show my AA.

 

Fortunately, they held although the cards were all around his and I thought he was going to get a straight. 

 

The rest of the game was pretty boring and I was just trying to place as my stack dwindled with the large small and big blinds.  There were 4 of us left and this one guy had 5 chips less than me and the BB put him all in.  The guy who was SB called and the guy that was all in lost to a pair of 6s.  Phew!

 

Next hand, I was all in and I can't remember what I had but it was rubbish.  I managed to place 3rd and won $6 which was very pleasing. 

 

Next time, I'll try not to join these turbo games as my style of play doesn't suit them at all.  Nonetheless, it was a good result.

Blue, i can play the machine poker like it was a natural, but live poker..(named poker like 7-card stud, or texas hold-um) i am completely horrible at, as well as online poker, here in Vegas i get to see alot of World Series and Series Poker events, they are amazing to watch, the twirl of the chips in their fingers amazes me, the seriousness in their faces along with their own animations are almost hypnotizing to watch..

Love the game but i could never play it like you do!

Thanks Imagin.

 

I've been playing poker since I was a kid and online poker for many, many years. I started off at one site in the play chips and when my balance kept going up, I thought it was time to deposit.  I withdrew $500 on that one deposit after many many small sitngos and tournaments.  I just played as often as I could - still do when I can.

 

I love the game and hate the fish and just the thought of playing an online game gets me all fired up and ready for action.

 

Have you actually ever played any online poker?
