  2. This is not an entry to be negative or talk about how good I play only to spew it away with bad bankroll management, but simply a reminder to myself that I can be my own worst enemy. I've run account balances up many times and proceeded to lose it playing on tilt, or running to blackjack after a few too many bad beats....However, like I said this is not about that.

    I'm simply creating this as an outlet to discuss my results. Hopefully if i'm honest and discuss it publicly i'll be less inclinded to make poor decisions and perhaps motivated to play at my best and give anyone reading something good to read.

    Considering i'm in Maryland my options for playing are limited to pretty much just BOL. I know it's not the best site but hey it's all I got. Before anyone complains about their cashouts I have had success cashing out there on multiple occasions.

    Anyway as I start this my account is at $45.51. I entered a 10 man $43 sng, and while I realize that isn't bankroll management at all, I have the ability to redposit.

    10 man SNG results- 3 of 10. Maniac was acting immediately after me. In the span of 3 hands I tried letting him hang himself and he ran better than me.

    Hand 1- I limped with AQ in SB at $100/$200 with $3180 in my stack. He raised to $800 with $5490 stack. I shoved and he called with KT. I held for this hand and he was now down to $1500 to my $6000+. Next hand on button I have AT suited and mini raise to $400. He insta shoves for $1500. He tables Q4, and flops a Queen which holds. A couple hands later in sb I limp again with AJ. He shoves for my stack and I insta call him. KJ for him and he binks a King on the flop.

  3. You probably reading this cause you got a dirty mind or I'm the one with his mind in the gutter. Most of the time yes :) This time, no. To any and all playing micro limit tournaments, be warned, there is one poker tactic that is very difficult to pull off, The Bluff.

    It is one of those things that every poker player can do and if done successfully can greatly increase your chip stack and put your opponent on tilt. Constantly pondering what the F you had. The thing is this though, do not try this in micro < $5 buy-in's if you not already in the money or on that bubble period. Players at this level don't think, no offense, they don't, they just say "Oooohhh, I have bottom pair, I know I am going to win, nothing can beat bottom pair".

    What you have, what the board says, means nothing. At this level, they playing to get lucky, to prove you have nothing, to hold on to hopes and dreams that this is the double up they need. What ever happens, this tournament doesn't mean that much to me I should play tactically, mathematically, strategically. They want to be the luckiest person on the table, that's their goal.

    Elaborations and waffling aside, play your odds and outs, your position, your opponents with care early on and don't be scared to check. Getting your opponent off will prove more difficult then you think. If you have position and they have called to river with no obvious sign a straight or flush was what they could have been chasing; chances are they have some small pair that they believe is strong and will not let it go. So if you made it this far, better have something to show. If not, just check in position and see the showdown. Rotations later, you will be in a situation where the hand plays out in a similar way but this time, you hit what you needed and this time their flat calling will be in your favor. You will be that much closer to taking the tournament down as it's victor.

    Good luck to you at the tables and if you have thoughts to share on this topic, I would be very interested to hear them.
