Posting Out Of Position

One way I like to spot a fish is when they do not wait for the big blind, instead posting as soon as they arrive at the table, its not a big deal money wise but for me it does prove that this player has not really thought through equity stuff, especially when they would have been the big blind next hand anyway.

Suppose when we are talking about the 5/10c game its pretty much all fish anyway, should be more focused on those who wait for the big blind as these are rare. This is not actually my personal insights by the way, I just can not remember where I heard about it, might have been cardrunners or maybe 2+2, not posting on 2_2 any more, just not worth the abuse to get help there, not that the abuse bothers me, some spotty teens arguing over grammar is just not my idea of a community.

Anway, you might have worked out that I do not have anything much to say in this blog post, out for the next couple of nights, so will post my about my next ig upswing just as soon as it happens.

yeah, one thing, if you run a blog which is any good then I'll add you to my blogroll, just let me know.

Ace-Queen, my jinx hand?

Starting to get real paramoid about ace-queens, so many times recently this has been a disaster for me that I'm starting to get irrational, thinking it is going to lose before the action even gets started... yesterday, twice I lost a decent pot with it, once running into Ace-King (rigged, lol) and once against a pair of4's that became a set on a Q high board, luckily both times opponents were short so it was less than 10 bucks for both, but seriously man, in a 6-max game you got to think that ace-queen is the best hand and play it strong, especially when you hit the flop.

Anyway, what are these euros thinking about buying in for $4, how do you expect to make up for those times you miss the flop after calling a raise when the max you could win against one player is $4... and they call 3-bets with fucking junk too, totally unbelievable.

The thing is I'm starting to worry now when A-Q comes, really do not want to play it soft, that would be asking for trouble, I know that the 5c / 10c idiots are only thinking about their own hands, it is not asif they are working out my hesitation or bet sizing or anything, my paranoia is getting the better of me. Just got to win a hand with one of them, one fucking time!
