The All in Radio poker show and a poker hand analysis

Thursday, December 17th, 2009 | Poker Strategy, Poker Tournament | 3 Comments

About a month ago (November 21st to be precise) 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 flop moves from Mitchell Cogert’s “Tournament Poker: 101 Winning Moves”. It is no secret that I like Mitchell’s book and consider it a must read for any serious poker player. After talking on the All In Radio show I had a very good poker talk with Mitchell regarding a hand my friend Artur 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 [...]

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’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 [...]

Poker player levels revisited

Saturday, July 25th, 2009 | Poker Articles, Poker Strategy, Poker Tournament | No Comments

This article belongs to the Poker Tournament series. My good poker buddy McTap wrote an excellent article some time ago about the second major leak he had discovered in his game. In this article he introduced us to the concept of poker player levels which I believe were first coined by Phil Gordon in his article : “Inside the mind” I’m revisiting the concept of poker player levels because I will be talking about it on The All in Poker Show later today. Currently I do not feel confident Read more [...]
