So October has not started all that well.
I wasn't being dealt hands, the hands that I was being dealt weren't hitting any flops.
When you're not going well most people would say take a break, my personal belief is that you just get tighter and tighter until finally things turn for you.
My Luck turned last night.
For the first hour I didn't really hit anything, finally I doubled up to around 1500, the starting value of chips. Then I kept hitting semi-decent hands, collecting chips here and there.
Eventually I had around 45,000 in chips and could afford to call with slightly lower hands.
Quick note, apparently this annoys people.
Now if a player goes all in and it's only another 2-3000 for me to call I can call this, fold on the flop and still have a really good stack, but if I hit the flop then good for me, I think this is fold equity or something like that.
As it happens I hit AJ, AQ and kings in the space of five hands, so when you raise a lot it looks like your being aggressive and trying to bluff.
Well it's all a part of the game, if you raise someone might call you it's a risk that you take.
But don't moan about it.
I finished in 36th last night and that was a massive improvement on how i'd been finishing.
I think people get wrapped up in all the odds and betting strategy and completely forget about the luck element, sometimes you have to ride it.
He who dares wins!
