Canterbury Park

So at about midnight Austin and I are heading out to Canterbury Club. Which is a horse racing and poker room 350ish miles away from where I live in Minnesota. Why do we go all the way there? Well for many reasons, first being Austin still isn't 21 so he can't play in Wisconsin. Second being it is our favorite card room. It has everything best service, best dealers, size is good, and great promotions. The complaint is it's strictly limit hold'em cash which I'm terrible at. However their tournaments are great. The majority players are worse than the $2 180 players. How about an example. So about 15 players left in a tournament only 9 get paid. Avg. stack size is roughly 6-8 BB. I have shoved all in the last 7 out of 8 hands. On the next hand I shove again from the hyjack (happen to have AQo but i'm shoving like 40-50% here since they plays so tight). Folds around to BB and he thinks for about 2-3 min. before folding 77 face up with only 6 BB behind and says I think I might have had you beat. In response I just laugh, so now he really thinks he had me crushed. But still the point is they are soooo tight and the structures are so fast it's amazing. So hopefully one of us will get another one of these pics.
(The hand I described is same tourny as this pic. Another side note 3rd place finish basically cried when I knocked her out long story but it's funny to see a 30-40 yr old women cry about losing such a small poker tourny.)

Coaching Update

So I have decided to start up a slightly different approach to coaching. I will now be accepting hand histories for me to take a look at. For each hand history I will note the positive plays and poor plays. I'll note what the proper range for a push or call that might have been misplayed, as well as any other important notes. I will note the regs and their ability as well. Also will be available on aim or email for any further questions you might have on a particular review.

Pricing: $10/ 1 review, $90/ 10 reviews $170/20 reviews, and any more than that contact me.

Contacts: Email: AIM Sn: smrtotalwar Skype is down temporarily will twitter on my blog when up. Any questions or comments are welcomed.

Going through a tough spot

So for the last almost 3500 games in 180 mans I have been on a slight downswing. It has been so hard to just continue playing my game. Constantly questioning if I'm making the right plays. But it really just comes down to variance. For instance yesterday I final tabled at least 10 180 mans, and managed to take nothing higher than a 4th. I took so many bad beats and was running into tops of ranges when shoving my bottoms. Every time I got it in as an underdog I found myself checking the play and every time the math said the play was correct. So I guess I just have to keep sealingup leaks but most importantly continue grinding. After the results I have been having it is definitely a grind.

To busy to post!

Sorry all for the delayed posts, but I have had a few weeks of family and personal affairs to take care of. A week and a half ago, I met up with my extended family in the florida keys, key largo to be exact. A weekend of snorkeling and drinking. It's always a party with my dads side of the family. While snorkeling my brothers and I were checking out this 8ft ish nurse shark (so my uncle called it). And then one of my brothers started talking to me... he ended the conversation in the middle of the water by shouting idiot your standing on the shark. And sure enough the current had moved me right above the sharks head. So a furiously swam to a safer distance. Point of the story is crazy stuff always happens on family trips and the Florida keys are beautiful check it out. The month of June for me was very trying. I had a terrible run down about 6.5k till the last two days of the month, and had nothing fun to blog about except my students huge run. The 28th was the day I flew in from Florida and found out it was turbo night and had to play. BAM! 7k plus some bonuses and coaching fees. Ended up decent for June but July and August need to be better or I will not be able to afford the sweet new apartment I just moved into. So gl everyone and pics of the apart and graphs will be apart of my next post or 2. I still currently do not ahve a digital camera but work something out.
