Going to try something a little different, and instead of spouting over a number of individual blog posts, I'll collate my small uninteresting updates into a single blog between the more detailed ones.
Early Zoom Thoughts 18/05/2017
It feels like the games have changed in some ways since my days as a regular a few years back, but there is definitely enough poor play on show to feel that I can win with a little practise.
I have encountered a lot of pre-flop aggression and fewer loose passive players which is a shame, as this cuts down on available post flop value. I can't really comment on the standard of the regulars at this stage as I have too few hands, but one or two players look competent. It also seems that there are fewer short stackers - which is good news for someone who likes to play 100bb.
Early results? I'm two buy-ins down, KK v AA in one pot and then variance.
It looks like I'm controlling the 'red line' or non-showdown winnings well, so it remains to be seen if I can still craft enough value in the big pots to make up the difference and earn some profit.
Another point to note is the card match feature, which adds a nice little side game while you play.
Overall I've been enjoying playing some post flop poker again. GL!
Played a short session tonight, there seemed to be a lot of casual players; maybe the games get good from 10:00pm or something, I wouldn't usually play this late. Picked up a quick 2.5x buy ins.
Overall though, I've been running fairly poorly so haven't much felt like blogging, though run bad doesn't affect me as much as it once did.
I have some hands I'd like to share, but will save for a later blog post when I'll do several at once.
