Unpoker Related

This post is completely unpoker related, but interesting.

I work as a bartender at a nightclub in Milwaukee. From time to time we get athletes that come in. Recently, Kyle Orton was in to take some time off from actually getting better. We also have some regulars that are Milwaukee Bucks players. I'll keep them anon.

Monday night is a busy night, we do $1 martinis for women until midnight. No, it's not fun making a shit ton of martinis. The New Jersey Nets are in town to play a game on Tuesday night against the Bucks. Needless to say, NBA players like to go out and party, and that's what the Nets' players were doing. I served Vince Carter and some of the other Net players and they seemed like genuinely nice guys.

It was cool to see such a big name NBA player hanging out in a baseball cap and baggy clothes. He took some pictures, but not many. He was just having fun with his friends (crew), drinking Hennessy.

That's my interesting story.

Online Pro

I am watching Daniel Negreanu play at Full Contact Poker right now. He's playing $500-$1000 limit HU (heads up) against a guy named AllTheWomen. Daniel's handle is KidPoker.

I've noticed that he enjoys check-raising and seems to call many hands to the river. He has over $82,000 in front of him and All has around $54,000. This amount has been going back and forth throughout the session. I've been checking the amounts for about an hour and they keep moving back and forth.

There are a lot of weird plays. It seems like they're both amateurs:

Just a lot of over aggressive play.

Update, Daniel over $90,000. Just won a $9,000 pot with 2 pair. Now over $100,000 with trip 10s. Up and down, up and down. It's fun to watch. I recommend it. It sure beats losing a shit ton.

Ring Games Busted

I saw this story and thought I should pass it along. Click the title for link. I guess some of the players were playing 1/2 and the club has a book with a list of players and phone numbers. Makes you think twice about playing at home... not really.

Busy Schedule

Just putting a post up to say that I'll be busy this semester. I'll try to place updates here every 2-3 weeks. Right now, I've leveled out a little. Probably going to buy a laptop with my winnings and start all over again. It's fun to play low limits and build up your bankroll.

I'll be getting my rakeback in about a week and I'll let you know what that amount was. Over $200, but not sure on the exact amount.

Keep playing aggressive.

Good Luck,

Tourney Cash

Doing well at Absolute Poker. Like I said in earlier posts, I cashed out and started all over with $50. A good week and I'm up over $500.

$20 buy in NL tourney. Took 4th for $123. Not great, but played well and got lucky when I was short stacked on the bubble.

Once I get my rakeback, will cash out again for at least $600. Rakeback rules. I give rakeback to my players, mostly low limit players. They're still happy with the $20 they get back. I'm getting over $200 this month.

Any questions, just ask.

Good Luck,
