The best way to deal with bad beats is to experience a lot of them

Saturday, January 31st, 2009 | Poker and Life, Poker Articles | 4 Comments

Submitted by Rakewell, this article belongs to the Poker and Life series. I recently read another long post on Rakewell’s PokerGrump blog and liked the way it touched on the subject of why we tend to remember our bad beats better when we are on the receiving end and how it becomes easier to deal with bad beats the more of them you have experienced. In addition Rakewell again draws parallels to situations that on the surface have nothing to do with poker, which I really enjoy and therefore Read more [...]

Monday, January 26th, 2009 | Poker and Life, Poker Articles | No Comments

This article belongs to the Poker and Life series This is the story of a Texas Hold'em variant known among my friends and I as Loco Poker. Loco Poker was developed in Newcastle a few years ago when Artur and I took two weeks off to visit my brother and a friend of his who had set op base in Newcastle to live the gambler's dream. Now I'm not sure who actually invented it. If you ask Artur and my brother they will claim to their death that it's their child, but I  like to think that the Read more [...]

Sunday, January 18th, 2009 | Poker Articles, Poker Strategy | 3 Comments

Submitted by Rakewell, this article belongs to the Poker Strategy series. I recently read this post on Rakewell's PokerGrump blog and although it is very long I think it touches on some important issues regarding poker.

Being as deeply immersed in poker culture as I am, perhaps it's impossible not to see the game everywhere. I have frequently noticed potential poker Read more [...]

Saturday, January 17th, 2009 | Poker and Life, Poker Articles | 1 Comment

Submitted by Dungbeetle, this article belongs to the Poker and Life series.  Dungbeetle has had a rocky start to 2009 mostly due to losses in live cash games. Hopefully he will turn things around now that he's focusing only on tournaments for the time being.    In 5 of my last 6 cash sessions the format has been the same - make steady profit for the first few hours when sober, before drinking compulsively and ending up a few hundred down. For some reason my brain has inextricably linked Read more [...]
