The Haunt of Roulette Dares
If anyone has Comcast Digital, check out The Mars Volta under their music concerts On Demand section. They are one of the best live acts out there right now. There's also a music video from a band called The Cloud Room somewhere on there. Fuse, maybe? And M83's "Teen Angst". Those are all good listens.
Right now I'm in the first stage of a $10+1 SnG. I've folded my first 7 hands preflop. My best two cards were J-9 suited, but I had those UTG+1, so it was a clear fold. Actually, I rarely play J9. I'll complete a small blind, check it in the BB, but the only other time I'll play it is when there are multiple limpers and I'm on the button.
Which got me thinking ...
What is my favorite starting hand? Obviously AA should be the automatic reply, but I personally like 9-10 suited in late position when there are a lot of limpers. Call me crazy, but that always sounds like the possibility to be a huge monekmaker. Aside from AA, I mean. Heh.
End of level 3 and I've barely played. What'll probably happen is I'll push with decent cards in an effort to steal the blinds, and one of 'em will have a good pocket pair and bust me. Blah. Let's see.
It didn't go that way. I never got anything decent to work with, and ended up going all in with an open end straight draw, but lost to someone who called with Ace high.
Variance has been dogging me lately. I came out of the gate on fire when I got my internet back, but it's been up and down for the last week. I'm still +$100 since two Saturdays ago, so I won't complain much.
