On the Virtues of Being Relentless

Still grinding out decent profits at the tables, despite some suckouts that would make the wee Jebus baby throw a colicy fit. I can't really complain, as I should know what's in store for me when I sit down at a table with an average VPIP of 47%, but it's still painful at times to see the leems rewarded, over and over and over, for some pretty horrific play.

I do have to admit, though, that it's worth the price of admission to hear assorted table coaches expound on "good" and "bad" plays. When Coach not only catches his A on the river, calling two bets cold the whole way (and with a 9 kicker), and then goes on to expound for ten minutes about why his nemesis was an idiot to keep raising with KK, because if he'd been paying attention he would have known that the A "was due to hit, since an A hadn't been on the board for three hands", well, that's just gold. Pure gold.

The last week or two have been pretty damned good ones, largely because I've managed to kick it up a notch, as far as taking care of assorted business (plus new plottings). I always stay relatively busy but get the bulk of many projects done in fits and bursts, when I relentlessly get much crap done that needs doing.

Still have some more grinding to do, though, if I want to book a decent profit for the month. Aside from lots of treading water, I sunk a decent amount of money into MTTs (WCOOP and some other satellite events) with almost nothing to show for it.

Yeah. Not much to see here. Nope.

Wow 47% at the 15/30 tables? I rarely, if ever, see that.. even at the 5/10 tables.

Thanks for the post as I was pretty sure that online poker just used one continuous deck so the Ace is certainly due to come if you haven't seen one in a while... lol.

Also, is there any one certain spot on poker tracker that will show that all important cold call % or do you just find the number and divide by the hands... and to find others... I'm assuming that you are putting PT focus on them to look at all of their stats (as opposed to like the summary page)

That 'Ace due' comment is absolutely priceless.

I concur with what "Div" said.

Senor Wonka,

PokerAce HUD pulls up the cold call percentage automatically along with assorted other statswhen you mouse over the player

Or you can find it under the first "More Details" screen from the General Info page. It's called "Limp/Call Reraise PF" instead of the more intuitive "Cold Call %" I think it's also displayed in the Position stats, under the CCPF column, as well as in that same column on the General Info page.
