I continue to double my bankroll

May 7th, 2007

so far so good the bankroll doubles daily.  Soon I may not need a sponsor.  Nah I much prefer to play with someone else’s money.

Play continues.  Nothing special to report.  Just good solid poker.  I try to pick out the weaker players and play them.  I try to stay away from the bigger ones.

doubled my bankroll today

May 4th, 2007

It’s way far away from 10k but If I can do that every day…  I played pretty well today.  Tight in the side games and left when appropriate.  My bluffs seemed to be working today and I had cards when people called me. 

If only people wouldn’t out draw me.

cashed in a tourney today

May 3rd, 2007

nothing really remarkable about it.  Just good solid poker.  Avoided putting my chips all in a couple of times and was rewarded when my opponent sucked out on the river.   I do find it annoying that people will look at a big bet from somebody and think golly my two outs might hit. 

But hey that’s poker baby.

I also took my winnings and increased them by 10% at a limit holdem table.

head to head

May 2nd, 2007

man talk about an insane game.  Gotta go in and be unpredictable.  Play tight, play loose, catch the good cards and slam your opponent.

So this guy is short stack.  He is going all in every hand and I’m folding til I catch something.  He let’s a flop come down and I catch two pair.  I do a little hollywood and bet out small he goes allin again with an open ended straight.  I call and my pairs hold up.

I think to myself “Oh yeah I remember why I play this way.”

this is how the halfbeard is progressing

know when to fold em

April 28th, 2007

When you’re beat you’re beat.  Fold your hand and if it’s really bothering get up and leave the table for a bit.  Drop an F bomb if you have to.  Make em kick you out.

Don’t put all your chips in at one time

April 27th, 2007

Unless you have the absolute nuts.  It really sux when the flop comes down AAT and you are holding pocket tens then lose when your opponent hits his AK on the river.  If they are betting large against you there is probably a reason.

I don’t really mind sliders, those players that  put all there chips in before the flop to win whatever chips are out there.  Especially those that do it all the time cause eventually I catch good cards and double up or felt them.

For Immediate Release

Schuyler “HalfBeard” Meyers Seeks Sponsor for World Series of Poker tm

When he finds a sponsor Schuyler “HalfBeard” Meyers will stop trying to promote himself and will start talking about his new partner.  HalfBeard says he will remain semi-bearded until the end of the World Series of Poker tm. 

PR Potential

“The  possibilities  for my sponsor are endless,” said Half-Beard. “I will be constantly asked why I am like this, providing excellent word of mouth buzz.  I will keep up my blog at https://www.halfbeard.net

There is potential for extensive media coverage.  The right company could get a lot of mileage for a  relatively  small investment.

“I am leaving the left side of my face unshaven,” said HalfBeard, “because I am often left at the poker table.”

Time Limit

There is a time limit however.  “By May 11, I need to renew my driver’s license.  If I don’t have a sponsor by then, the beard comes off.
