Haven't posted in a year almost but haven't had much reason to really. I don't think I have played a single MTT since MD Live ran their summer series last July. Played a ton of cash in the fall through the new year then basically didn't play once from about February 1 through April 15. Obviously as a tax guy that is my heaviest volume period and I just didn't have the time to play. Have played some since (maybe 35-40 hours).
At this point I am playing almost exclusively PLO. No other reason for this than the games are super soft and easy to beat. I have played some 2/5 NL while waiting for my name to be called or whatever, but that probably totals 90 minutes of NL. The most interesting NL hand I played was about 2 weeks ago while waiting for 2/2 PLO.
1 limp; I raise to 20 with QhJh. 3 call incl limper. Flop QJ5r. I bet 55 into 80. Fold, fold, old guy ch calls. He is the one that had limp called pre.
Turn A full rainbow. Old guy ch, I 120 into 190. He c/r to 350 with 200 behind. I literally haven't seen him play a hand so I guess he is a rock.
I ran it by a few people and got everything from limp pre when an old nit limps UTG, to check back turn as that fills in a ton of hands that beat me.
Any comments? Won't tell what I did for a bit.
Anyway 2/2 PLO is really good. There just aren't very many good players and stacks get super deep later in the night given all of the all-ins, etc. Pretty typical to have 3 or 4 players $2k deep and a bunch $1k-$1.5k deep. Obviously it can be insanely swingy too but that is the nature of the game.
Heading out on June 13 for a week or so in the desert. The plan is to play some combination of the following:
6/13 WSOP $1,500 Monster Stack
6/14 WSOP $1k or Venetian $600
6/15 Venetian $600 PLO
6/16 WSOP $1,500 Mix Max
6/17 WSOP $1,500 PLO
6/18 Venetian $600
Sold some pieces of these events though I doubt I will play the full schedule and hopefully will go deep some. I'm staying at Venetian again this year as the thought of a week in the Rio is just unbearable.
Will update any good results as warranted.
