detroit poker

I get more and more lazy about updating this blog regularly because i dont get paid money for doing so, and i feel i need to spend 100% of my time earning money since im so stressed about it all the time. unlike Ray who spends some of his time on OKcupid looking to meet women to go out with. which i never do because i cannot bring myself to take time off, or spend money. in fact, with todays loss of over $1000, half of it on $2-5 in motor city, some of it on the charity room in MI, some of it from Greektown, where i think i made a bad bluff attempt due to impatience, (described both this hand and one other hand with 7-7 to Ray from the previous nite) which im too lazy to do here right now because im too tired to write this blog, im down to less than i left FL with.

but Ray is glad i showed him $2-5 NL. tonight he played it for the first time and he won $350. so now hes willing to use his credit to play it, because he thinks the players are much more willing to gamble than the $1-2 players, and feels he can win enough in it to "not get frustrated". it will keep him off the money hes wasted on VP this week.

i dont think i played the $2-5 nearly as bad as the $1-2. didnt lost patience like i did more than once in $1-2 this week. at least im not playing no more BJ. didnt try to make extravagant moves or bluffs like the ones i told Ray about, which he can tell here in the comments if he is less lazy than me. but this final hand, i make it $25 with AK preflop. 2 callers, and im last to act. flop comes K67 with 2 spades to a flush, they check i bet $65, one guy calls. turn comes 5, not my favorite card, with 2 flush draws now out there. if im beat, im going to have to call his bet so i overbet the pot to $400 allin. theres 4 or so with piles over $2000 in the table. he calls, river is A offsuit, which is good because then i suck out if he had 2 pair. hes got the 34 of hearts? wtf? he called $65 on the flop? with nothing but the gutshot?

im almost thinking id been better off staying in columbus, as bad as their games were, i still came out ahead close to $700 while there.

if anyone noticed anything weird with the blog in this past week, lightning accidently published his blog here, then immediately deleted it and put it on his blog.

  1. That was no accident. That was all part of the fake news efforts to undermine our democracy.

  2. Hold on. Didn't you call $60 with 95 suited and crowed about it? So it's not okay for others to play like a donkey, just you...

  3. "the players are much more willing to gamble than the $1-2 players"

    "hes got the 34 of hearts? wtf? he called $65 on the flop? with nothing but the gutshot?"

    Notice how these two things go together?

  4. It's called: "Situational Poker". The cornerstone of a learned behavior most believe to be an acquired skill. Some people are better at behavioral skills learned over time than others. It's really just that simple. Poker is and always will be a behavior...first. Everything else is just ego based mental masturbation. How do you behave? Gambling doesn't exactly bring out the maturity in people. I know 60 year old men who don't act old enough to even be in a casino. And 30 year olds who act too cool for school having cracked the genetic code for getting easy money the rest of their lives because they made a big score once...and THEN got on a rush. Archie Karas has you all beat. Me and my Dad both knew him in the day. Look him up.

    1. What is your dad's name? Can't look him up without a name.

    2. You're looking for Archie Karas, not me or Pop. We just knew him in the 90s. I met him once when I visited my folks in Vegas. Dad knew him well. Here is the lowdown if you are still interested:

    This from the guy who desperately wants a girlfriend in his life. You do realize how unappealing this makes you look right bro I mean any woman that would be reading this blog that would even consider dating you would run for the freakin hills.

    1. Flushhdraw, you do realize he had to look on Facebook to remember his mother's birthday. Ladies, look at the way a guy treats his mother. He will treat you the same way.
