sorry guys, had a lot going on, and then I ended up losing the password to log into the blog, I finally found the peice of paper I wrote it on and got everything changed...
Somehow one of the blogs I linked to got shutdown so that may be gone as well but I'l be starting fresh again.
Anyways I plan on posting at least twice a week if not more, I also have an ebook coming out, and lots of good stuff to come. Thanks for your patience and I hope you learn everything you can from this blog.
I plan on adding videos, maybe even creating an audiobook, and there's a lot of great stuff yet to come. I'll be focusing primarily on this site, I may add to the bankroll builder and other sites, but for now you can expect to see most everything here.
As to where my games at, I've been really learning how to impliment Daniel Negreanu's power holdem strategy. I've been accumulating chips effortlessly and moving up. As you probably have heard, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson freerolled his way from 0 to 10,000 recently with proper bankroll management skills. I finished a similar feat freerolling 0 to $1000 by using the same money mangement skills. My goal now is to do the same thing again, this time I will log my time. I'm trying to learn everything I can about poker first and foremost and I think freerolls are great expperience. It's very difficult to bluff online, and even more so on freerolls, so it really allows you to focus on how to get your money in as best you can, and be very selectively aggressive, going after the rocks at the table. You have tochop away at the small pots because otherwize you're going to have to survive all in after all in, and even with aces, that's a tough feat... Dutch Boyd always talks about how aces all in 3-4 times in a row, and you're only about 50% to survive. If you watched the WSOP 2007, you'll noticed that Scotty Nguyen finished 11th... Here's a guy who's hardly EVER EVER all in, and that includes pushing all in as well as calling all in. The greatest risk reward ratio you can have is by gradually accumulating chips, and not getting it all in unless you are a MONSTROUS favorite AFTER the flop where your edge is greater. you might not even have to go all in even if you're getting your money really good because the risk is so great, especially early. When the blinds get bigger, okay, you're going to have to, when you get near the bubble, sure because everyone else is going to be giving you there blinds and you want to take out anyone who isn't making it easy for you to steal the blinds. But early on it doesn't make any sense. There's a podcast with Doyle Brunson and they asked him about doubling up early and he says hes just happy if he can have more chips than he started with, and he said "what difference does it make" for doubling up. Phil Helmuth said he really doesn't start playing until the antes get in because that's when you have the odds uin your favor and there's so much more to gain. I think that it's pretty easy to accumulate chips and avoid confrontation in freeroll, but it may mean folding hands when you normally wouldn't, but when you play Daniel Negreanus' power holdem strategy, you really don't have to put your chips at risk and it'll suprize you how good you can get your money in when people finally flop "something" and you flop a set. If you can learn to play a lot of pots and make these questionable decisions, you'll get paid off HUGE because you have the perception of a maniac.
I'll have a lot more tips comming but for now I have to go
