I haven't posted in my blog for awhile, so.. here's an update :)
Welcome back old friends!!! and a big hello to the fresh fish !!
I've been playing a lot of PLO @ the cash sites. The tables are very weak at the .01/.02c level. Up about $14 over the weekend. I broke down and purchased Omaha Indicator, and very happy with it so far. Particlularly it's help defining the strength of my starting hands. Yes, I still have trouble with this.. sigh.
The biggest improvement tho, is raising pre-flop. Something I used to *never* do in PLO. If I have a premium hand, I raise it up (usually pot). This makes sense as it punishes the weaker hands plus, it creates a big enough pot pre-flop, that flop bets have some teeth. As Hitman asks in NL games. Is this a big pot, or small pot hand. With my premium hands, I want to play for the big pots.
Grandbabies are all doing well, and I've started playing a local (free) game on Sundays. Usually about 30-40 entrants. I haven't had any real success the times I've played but, I don't feel I've made any major mistakes. I really like these games as I don't have the opportunity to play 'live' poker very often, and this gives me a chance to get more familiar with all the things playing online makes you lazy in. (keeping track of pot size, handling chips, raise amounts, etc.).
Thanks to the conversions, I now have enough SP's for a buy-in! Yea!!!. Current plans are for Tunica next year, unless another WPT/WSOP event is close to Little Rock, AR that I can drive to before then. I'm psyched!
Again a warm welcome to all the new faces, and a good razz to all my old friends! Welcome back!!
