in with the best hand

Wednesday, June 13th, 2007

That’s poker baby.  You get your money in with the best hand and hope it holds up.  It often does.  It seems like it often doesn’t.  Isn’t that annoying.

Halfbeard is still available to sponsor.  It doesn’t have to be the main event either.  There are several events that ESPN covers this month.

There are a bunch of companies missing out on a great opportunity.  Everybody I meet asks me about the halfbeard.  And of course I say I’m looking for a sponsor.  It would be so much nicer to say I’m being sponsored by thus and such and even include a tag line.  but not yet.  I haven’t met the right person/company with the right combination of vision and deep marketing pockets.

yet another cash

cashed again in another tourney this morning.  Turned around and increased it by 50% shortly thereafter in a ring game.  Seems like limit is the game for me.  Certainly makes it it difficult to go allin early.

garbage calls

Friday, June 1st, 2007

OK, I get it people are gonna call with rags but golly it seemed to happen a lot today.  With the blinds at 150 and 300 and only one caller I raised a pot sized raise from the BB to see if the fellow had anything.  He called with K5off suit and hit both the K and the 5 on the flop.  Sorta put my hand to shame. 

OK my hand was nothing special KJs but he shoulda folded when I raised back at him.

Stuff to learn from this.  He and I had been going at it for the better part of an hour.  It’s prolly not the best policy to let your ego get in the way.  He prolly would have called me with anything… No wait he did.
