Well, I gave a nice post about online poker and did not follow my own advice and got hammered online. Why? Lack of patience, playing too long a session and deciding to move to the NL game where I got 2 outted, BUSTOLA.
Personally, I beleive online cash game poker is becoming nothing more than glorified roulette. But be advised, gambling is gambling!!
Therefore I have decided to only play tournaments and sit and goes online for value.
Sometimes I go on a whine like Phil Helmuth (whom I agree with on most of the points he makes) bitching how bad the players are. SO WHAT? If I know this what does that make me? EVEN WORSE!! lol!!
Any poker advice myself or Mike gives, even other pros like Mike really when it comes to online, is just about out the window.
These so called players are not poker players, they just are gamblers with little clue about the value of hands, will cold call you 3 times with 75 off, flop low ball gutter draw and river it. This is modern day poker online.
We also are seing more of this in live games as well.
Will it do any good to explain position pot odds to them? Nope, no good. Will they eventaully go bust? Most likely, yes!!
The key is staying away from the hot donkey; However, you want to play online cash games? Better right now understand your opponents are mainly morons, and morons can catch cards on you. AGAIN AVOID THE HOT DONKEY!!
think your fishing in a donk? Think again, if the donk is on a stone cold spinner, he will call you all the way with nothing and run on you, YOU GUYS OUT THERE , I KNOW MANY OF YOU HAVE SEEN THIS TIME AFTER TIME, AFTER TIME!!
Again, I'll get more value playing sit and goes for 10 and 20 a pop. I can play for an hour or more. maybe not make the money all the time, but I will get some entertainment and competition for cheap. Better than losing your whole roll on one hand ay? How about larger field tournaments? Yep, good value there, you catch a few cards and avoid some bad beats you can make the money. you dont, oh well, 5, 10, 20 bucks you lost?
It is still fun however to reem that donk once you get your cards, muhahaha!!
