re: Poker & My first experience with RUSH Poker
It's a high variance cash game. Constantly shuffling your opponents and not having a real read on anyone, IE. Someone who attempts to steal every time they are on the button or always 3-bets ATC in any position would be really hard to read unless you have played with that player before. Really, you are playing the situation at hand and most cases without reads you may find yourself in a world of hurt when you start giving less and less credibility to your opponents because of the fish that you have run into previously.
For example I just had QQ vs. a player I had no notes on, no notes in HEM never seen him before I raised on the button and was 3-bet by the big blind. I had 2 options, shove or flat call and try to hit a set in the chance that I was up against AA or KK and at best I was against AK, still a 48/52 (i think). Just gotta play the situation although this hand I did flop a set and he flopped two pair with 74s.
Just to give you an idea of the situations you will face and the players you will face as well. Best advice I could give you is to play ultra-tight at a 9-max game and just play like a total nit, AKos, AQs (ip), AJs (ip) AA, KK, QQ, JJ, TT, 99, any pocket pair with intent to set mine and see a flop for as cheaply as possible with pairs lower than queens.
You could be facing a 4-bet all in from someone who would normally be 74/55/10 in full ring but you may not know it.
It really isn't real poker it's situational on all hands. It is a great way to work on "situational" plays, get a lot of volume, and really testing your luck against variance. If you run good, you run good, but you will also run bad, it can be a quick bankroll booster or a quick bankroll buster.
