Poker Bankroll Building on a stake deal_update 2

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009 | Poker Articles, Poker Bankroll Building | 3 Comments

I have started a stake deal with my good friend Artur. The deal is that I provide a starting bankroll of 2000$ and when he reaches 5000$ I receive 3000$. I have chosen to see the deal as a bet where I get odds 1.5 on my stake. Since I think the probability of success is more than 67% the EV on my bet is above 1. If you are a gambler you always take bets with an EV over 1 Here are some more details: Limits 0,5$/1$ The project will obviously stop when the bankroll hits 0$ I cannot pull Read more [...]

Tournament mistakes_part 1

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009 | Poker Articles, Poker Tournament | 1 Comment

Instead of bitching and whining over bad beats I thought I would start sharing the mistakes I make in tournaments. By doing so I hope to reduce the number of mistakes I make and channel my frustrations into writing blog posts which is way more constructive than punching my desk. Although I am on an official big buy-in tournament break I still play the tournaments in my Poker tournament league. Today was a 2000$ guaranteed 6$ buy-in turbo 6 max tournament on Power Poker. I did quite well to Read more [...]

Thoughts on making moves in online poker tournaments

Sunday, November 15th, 2009 | Poker Articles, Poker Strategy, Poker Tournament | 9 Comments

You don't win hands by checking; you win hands by betting. My friend Artur keeps reminding me about this when we play online tournaments together. For some reason I tend to forget this simple mantra when I play online poker tournaments by myself. Yesterday for example I was playing a small stakes online poker tournament on Full Tilt Poker. I was doing quite well due to some good hands coming my way. I think I had around 8000 chips when I decided to make a move under the gun with A7 suited. Read more [...]

All in Radio Poker show and a funny email from Mitchell Cogert

Saturday, November 14th, 2009 | Poker Articles, Poker Strategy, Poker Tournament | No Comments

Last Saturday I talked on the All in radio poker show (click the link and go to 34 minutes into the show to hear my words of wisdom). I talked mostly about my favorite preflop moves from Mitchell Cogert’s “Tournament Poker: 101 Winning Moves”. It is no secret that I think Mitchell’s book is a must read for any serious poker player, so if you have some spare time check out his tournament poker blog. Later that week I had a pleasant chat with Mitchell and after listening to the radio show Read more [...]

I’m taking a long break from tournament poker

Monday, November 9th, 2009 | Poker Articles, Poker Tournament | 4 Comments

My online poker tournament year has been absolutely terrible with only two final table finishes all year. Due to my bad run I am experiencing increasing difficulties dealing with the luck factor of the game. I feel like an injustice is done to me every time someone sucks out on me. Watching the final table action of the WSOP main event has just confirmed the fact that luck is a key factor in poker. You can be the best player in the world but if you are not lucky and those coinflips roll your way, Read more [...]
