Gone Fishing

I had heard a few rumours that the NL100 tables were a lot better since stars implemented the table changes.

I have been playing NL50 all month and yesterday I played 2 short sessions at NL100. I made small wins in both sessions but I decided to play only 10 tables. When I was winning at poker I never played more than 10 tables at any one time.

Today I fired up my 10 tables again and have won again, all 3 sessions today. So that's 5 sessions out of 5, hmmmmmmm.

I can say that there were 2 extremely tough spots where I made big lay downs, correctly or incorrectly I don't know but if I was 24 tabling they would have probably been insta calls where I wouldn't have had the time to think through how the hand played. I usually get shown the nuts in these situations and cry for a little bit.

I will try and stick to this new set-up unless I have a hugely bad run.

Some nice fish are back at NL100 and here is an example. You would never see a reg call pre with this hand in the SB

Poker Stars $100.00 No Limit Hold'em - 9 players

UTG+2: $102.75
MP1: $100.00
MP2: $100.00

BTN: $122.65
SB: $48.20
BB: $134.30
UTG: $100.00
UTG+1: $129.60

Pre Flop: ($1.50) Hero is CO with Q of diamonds K of clubs
4 folds, MP2 raises to $3, Hero calls $3, 1 fold, SB calls $2.50, 1 fold

Flop: ($10.00) K of diamonds Q of clubs 7 of spades (3 players)
SB checks, MP2 checks, Hero bets $5.85, SB raises to $11.70, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $97, SB calls $33.50 all in

Turn: ($100.40) 9 of diamonds (2 players - 1 is all in)

River: ($100.40) 8 of spades (2 players - 1 is all in)

Final Pot: $100.40

Hero shows Q of diamonds K of clubs
SB shows 7 of hearts K of spades

Hero wins $97.40
(Rake: $3.00)
