My dearth of posts may be close to a record. Visitors will recognize I’ve a mouth equaling or exceeding brains. And, quality is certainly a transient beast. So, posts can and typically do arrive with reckless abandon. I have a somewhat red face for a variety of reasons, I’ll even give a go at an actual poker post. Haven’t been playing a lot and that has been ring. Let see what I can come up with.
There is one I’ve been thinking about doing. It is about a Jordan post. Now the esteemed barrister is of the New Yawk flavor and of the trial phylum. That means confrontational and willing to work with rationalizing the facts in a case. In the halls of jurisprudence, that a way to fame and lucre. At poker, maybe yes and maybe no. Well, he might luck out and get all of OJ’s jury at the table but that’s too much luck.
So, I wasn’t too surprised to come across How to Win at Razz with an Exposed Queen.
Our Rumpole clone just may have enjoyed a bit too much of the plonk prior to or during the game. He describes a skip down the yellow BRICK road with a straight face and high dungeon. A better title might be Line in the Sand. To those used to the Jordan approach, it is great theater. For any one contemplating a career playing RAZZ, not so.
My ring play was Stud8B and done at FT. I am a bit ahead. It was a bit of a struggle getting away from the tournament mindset though. The wins would have been better had I ignored a few of the draws.
What I did manage to note is that FT studs are more studly than other sites I’ve played. Capping was far more prevalent. And pursuing that tack early isn’t very EV enhancing Otherwise, it was the same mix of optimism and hand selection. You’d of thought they were following Jordan’s RAZZ blog. Bricks and dead cards held no decline in their optimism.
As to my MIA status, truth is I’ve been dungeon crawling on the computer more than dungeon crawling on the poker sites.
Supposed to be 90 here today. I’ve been out in the yard in a tee. There is a weather watch for later today as a cold front is moving in our general direction. But, it looks like we’re on the fringe of the fear of tornado and hail. Fingers crossed. If my weather station quits reporting, it means the weather nymphs drew out.
