Is this trend possibly sustainable??? HELP!
Ok - brief history of my poker play.
Played total of approximately 300,000 hands in 8 years. Probably 95% was online as a break even player mainly $10 SNG. Some big MTT wins. Throw in some home games where when I want to I can win most games. I haven't played much in the last 3 years.
Three weeks ago, on a Saturday night, I took $200 to a brick and mortar 1/2 game. Played 5 hours and won $800. Same thing the following Saturday, $700. Last Saturday, $900.
Can I continue this trend of approximately $125/hour? Am I lucky, are they that bad, or is Saturday night at this particular place the perfect storm of recreational, drunk, and degenerate players where you can stack because the players are that readable, and that bad?
Here's my theory. I get in at about 8:00 right before the list gets too long. 6-7 of the 10 players are either bad, drunk, or degenerates who are losing focus after 12 hours already at the table. The 2-3 sharks are so tight and predictable you fold when they play unless you have a monster.
I sit down, don't drink start tight build a nice stack (I change my play drastically when I reach $400 range). Then I see more flops and can take $50-$75 pots with bets of $30 even without the best hand. By the time I reach $500 the whole table is gunning for me and they're playing bad hands just out of spite.
Can this recipe be truly replicated every Saturday, or have I just gotten lucky 3 weeks in a row.
I won't tell you where I play
But I want someone to tell me if I am lucky or if I have found the perfect recipe![image: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif]
