If you want to reach your goal online I'd suggest something different than heads-up matches.
The rake eats up a lot of your winnings. Rush poker is VERY good for get in a ton of hands without spending all night waiting for decent cards/bad players.
How weird that he and I wrote pretty much the exact thing about changing games?
Now truth be told, the majority of my game isn't heads up matches, although I do enjoy them. They feel more like a chess match to me, which is another game I enjoy. But Drizz is so right about changing my games. I haven't had much success lately, but looking back to previous online successes, most of my cash has come from (90) person games and larger tourneys, so I've been thinking about focusing on that for a bit.
Now I previously posted being down $60 for 2011. Which, by the way, the majority of that went to fricking Drizz himself. How does he sleep at night, taking hard earned cash from an innocent
Anyway, I played 3 games in the past 24 hrs.
Game 1: A $6 (90) person and came in 12th. Yep, you read that right. Blah!!!! I did get 3 knock outs though. Net negative $3.
Game 2: I played The Poker Slut (keep your comments to yourself) game last night, cuz Bammer told me to and I came in 3rd. I dunno who that Gadzooks guy is but I owe him a beating. I was chip leader from the start but one bad hand had me scrambling to get itm. Cash of $9, net of $4.
Game 3: I played an $11 (18) peep and came in 3rd for a win of $32 (I think) and a net of $21. Yes, again I was chip leader through most of the whole damn game.
So that puts my shitty online play at negative $38, which is certainly better that -$60.
Drizz, I'm gonna need more advice than "Play Rush". Please be more specific. :))))))) Thank you. I promise to be un-bitchy from now on.
