Hitting The Limit

September 14th, 2009 Poker No Comments »

After a brief delay, Viva Macau managed to get us home safe and sound, so I’m now happily recovering.  I had the option to goto the Sydney Poker Championships but decided to pass and take a break as I was pretty burnt out following Macau.  Despite only a 2 hour time delay, I still haven’t actually managed to adjust my body clock as I’m constantly awake late at night, and sleeping in until midday.  Since being home I’m jumped back online with some mixed results.  I’ve had some horrible luck in some tournaments, with potential deep runs ended in brutal fashion.  I did land a 7th and a 3rd in two small buy-in tournaments, but really, was disappointed not to win both as I was playing well.

On the cash game scene, I just don’t seem to be able to beat the NL game like I used to.  I’m in a real rut.  I guess that happens when you don’t stay on top of your game.  For something different I decided to jump over to some low limit games, and despite limit poker being infuriating, it brings some benefits.  Limit is a swingy game, due to the fact that players are able to chase their draws more cheaply than NL, so although it brings more pain, the impact of each individual beat is not as painful as say, getting stacked in NL.  The great thing about limit is that it’s the best way to earn points for things such as bonuses or rake races such as the one on Betfred Poker.  It takes me back to my bonus-whoring days where I can multi-table a heap of tables and just grind it out ABC.  The good thing is that the players at this level are so bad, it’s been a great way to turn around my losing streak.  While the NL games are getting tougher and tougher, it’s nice to know that the limit games are still ridiculously soft.
