Sept 21 – Mixing It Up

Comments off 783 Views0

Things have been going well. Ended up making and finalizing my Bluffing Poker Video the other day. It took me about 1.5hrs to record and another 6.5hrs of editing/production. I am very happy with the end product, and hopefully those who bought it already are as well. For those who are wondering why it is only $25 as opposed to more…I priced it that way, not because I feel it is valued at that price, but because I am testing something with the pricing models. So we shall see what comes of it =)

This week looked to be quiet as far as coaching hours are concerned, but the schedule randomly filled up on me. So now I am just working around various coaching hours. I actually decided to mix it up after coaching today and play some 6max. What a totally different game it is. Much more aggressive, but also so much extra dead money lying around begging to get picked up. Not sure what I am going to do with 6max, but being that I am feeling bored and need to learn something new, I might start playing it a little more regularly. If nothing else, it will get my thinking more in-depth about something new.
Also, random side hand of the day. There was a thread talking about how KK performs AIPF. So I ran a filter and found this gem from back when I was SSing. I giggled:

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold’em, $1000 NL (8 handed) –

BB ($1297)
Hero (UTG) ($285)
UTG+1 ($1000)
MP1 ($831.40)
MP2 ($155)
CO ($1000)
Button ($2138)
SB ($961.25)

Preflop: Hero is UTG with K, K
Hero calls $10, 1 fold, MP1 bets $45, 4 folds, BB calls $35, Hero raises to $169, MP1 raises to $293, 1 fold, Hero calls $116 (All-In)

Flop: ($620) J, 5, 6 (2 players, 1 all-in)

Turn: ($620) K (2 players, 1 all-in)

River: ($620) A (2 players, 1 all-in)

Total pot: $620 | Rake: $3

Hero had K, K (three of a kind, Kings).
MP1 had Q, K (one pair, Kings).
Outcome: Hero won $617

Everything else has been going well. I’ve been totally retweaking with my disc golf game (trying to really hammer out a drive with form, rather than my really janky anti-singlular-plane thing I have going on)…so my scores have been totally out of wack. But, my putting is getting pretty solid…which is incredibly important. So we’ll see how shit goes when I get back out there tomorrow. And on that note…I’m off to the gym and then bed. Hope all is well!
