Finally got my first gold card on Cake poker! Took me a while but was finally awarded a 3 of spades. I recently started playing more ring games in general so I've been hitting em up on Cake. Also, I've grown to love playing pot limit omaha hi/lo. There's just something about that game that brings so much action to the pots. It's a nice change then constantly playing nl hold em.

Question to who ever actually reads my blog.......How many gold cards do you have on cake? And how long did it take you to get them at what stakes?

Thanks. =]

Yeah, I can see why you like hi better. hi/lo is such a game of re draws but one thing I like lot about it compared to just regular hi is that you get to play a lot more hands. I at times lose my patience sitting and waiting for decent to solid omaha hi hands.

Congrats on the cake poker. I'm doing the same thing, but I'm only at 50 after couple weeks. I'm just playing mainly the .04/.08 stakes so its taking forever.

What a great night of poker! Started off the night at a friends house playing a kamakazi tourney. We were waiting for a friend to arrive so we could start the actual tournament so we decided to play a quick 1$ buy in. Ended up hitting 3 tens for the win. So the night started off great for me.

So my buddy finally arrive and then we started a 10 man, 20$ buy in and after a hell of a grind out I took it down for $140. Definitely made my night!

Been doing somewhat bad online lately. Definitely been getting coolered a lot. Damn those cold cold decks of cards.

It's weird though, because I played a home game tourney, with a 10 buy in last night and my cards were hot for the mean while. When it came down to three handed, every all in heads up flip I went into with the short stack, even if I had the dominating hand, I'd still lost. AHHH!

Luckily I had a big chip lead and continued to stay focused and eventually made it into heads up. After a crazy up and downhill chip lead multiple times playing heads up, I finally took it down. I only won $60 bucks but hey, better then nothing.

Well I'm not sure but this looks like my last blog for 2008. So till the new year, cheers everyone!

It seems your bad luck streak has left from reading this.Maybe you needed to find your niche.There are a few tricks that I use to end a badluck streaks,plus they prolly only work for me anyway.
Perhaps setting some kind of goal,or setting a limit on how much you are willing to lose.Bankrolling should also be on your list too,like how much money are you going to win before you cashout?
other things are basic,like never play when you are tired,sick..ect will improve your game.people are less patient when sick or tired.Well good luck to ya!

This guy had a huge chip lead over me when heads up play started, and since my cards were cold it didn't last long for me to make a move and eventually busting out taking 2nd.

Dun dun dunnnnn. Adios 2008! As I look back on the year of poker for me, both live and online, I did fairly well.
I can definitely say that I made well over 1k in live home games playing friends and some unknowns. And online I have been somewhat profitable as well.

But on to more recent news....


Tonight I just got back from playing from playing a short handed tourney (5 people) at a friends house. $10 buy in winner take all. Guessss who won it...... :hi:.
Woot woot! Right after that we all decided to play a blackjack tourney. Well, actually they decided and then got me to play somehow, haha. I'm not a big fan of it, but I said what the hell. It was $5 buy in and I ended up losing barely!

We realized the night was still young and then decided to play another $10 winner take all. And this tourney was much much longer then the first and by far had a lot of fluctuating chip leads through out three handed play. But in the end, guess who came out victorious once again......:mrgreen:. I ended up making a nice little profit of $75 by the end of the night, which isn't too shabby.

Well, the new year is finally here and I'm glad. I've been hot somewhat lately playing live.
Played another 7 person sng at a friends house. $10 buy in winner take all. A buddy busted out in like 3 hands and we let him rebuy back in. So the pot was a decent $80 at this point. After about 2 hours of play and one hell of a battle three handed I finally took it down!

Ok, so far so good for live play....but when it comes to online, I haven't been able to really cash. It's starting to get ridiculous! It's not even that I'm playing bad, I just tend to get in the pot with the best of it most of the times and then just some dirty bad luck.

I just hope this crappy dirty bad luck leaves soon for the online play!!!

Dude I just got my sweet sweet revenge one timer . While I was playing in that sng I was playing in a 11 buy in , 1.5k Guarantee and this went down . The guy that pushed with the tens was playing super loose and pushing constantly. And of course I had no clue that the BB would wake up with rockets. STill in this one so hopefully I'll be posting good news soon.

Ok So about an hour Later I go heads up and lose to a damn KJ to my A7. The guy didn't want to play hands post flop so he either folded or pushed since he had about 100k more in chips then me. Busted out 2nd for a nice decent amount. Still very very mad at myself for calling his raise preflop. Even more mad though that I knew I had the best of it till he hit his Jack on the turn to end it.

Congratulations Mysterious R,

Out of 128 players in Tournament 4071191 ($1,500 GUARANTEED!), you came in 2nd and have won $236.25.

You've also been awarded 7 FPP for participating in the tournament.

Best wishes,

Congrats Ron, nicely done. :beer: Tough to play all in or fold heads up when you're not the big stack. Good win nonetheless.
