This is a discussion on I'm Starting a Poker Blog within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; For those who want to follow along.
I hope to keep it interesting, informative, and entertaining. :)
Good luck. Just for comparison sake you might be interested in taking a look at mine. Mine isn't exclusively about poker - more about gambling in general with a few "bird walks" here and there on other topics. www.cardsdicewheels.blogspot.com
Alright.... strategy post update
It's funny, I did that same line on an opponent the other night(same scenario, in bb facing raise from co,flopped flush draw,check called the flop and led out on turn) Worked like a charm! The reason I like this "Sip n Go" strat is bc it disguises the hand you're holding...almost makes it look like you flopped big and certainly has a tendency to make the preflop raiser scratch his head
Looking forward to reading more sir John!

So I had Jared Tendler, author of the Mental Game of Poker Vol. I & II, do a video for us, and I'm sharing it in my blog here with some comments about Tilt. Public enemy number one... There should be some helpful info here.
Yeah, I also notice that when I play tighter cutting down the number of bad spots that I put myself in pretty much eliminates tilting on my part. I find it a lot harder to maintain the balance between being patient and exploiting enough spots though
Good! I won't follow as I'm travelling ATM, but I liked your book! You are a big plus to CardsChat. :-)
Thanks... I love CC members so it makes it easy to exchange ideas and learn.
If you signup on the blog page, you'll just get e-mails when I update. I don't and won't use it for anything else, ie marketing, sharing, etc... so if you want to keep up easily just put your e-mail in.
Thanks. Correcto... I had a super busy summer so took a bit of a break. But I plan on doing more hand analysis and article writing going forward. Also, getting some of these videos up from time to time as well.
Since I've done a ton of work with Poker Tracker and Holdem Manager over the years, I did a little write up about the differences and where each of them excel. I hope this helps some people out who are trying to decide.
Thank you so much (again) for taking the time to share your work with us. I generally 3x except when I'm on the button, when I will 2.5 x against tighter players who will fold a wider range and 3bet me less. What is your opinion on this?
3x the BB is great, and 2.5x on button is ok. But if you can do more, depending on your stakes, do it. I mean unless you're planning on playing 36%+ of your hands and outplay everyone, there's really no reason not to raise more and exploit the weaker players that will still call with the same range that they'd call for 2x. You're really only helping the regs in your game to do otherwise imho. I think it's a completely misunderstood strategy applied at stakes where it shouldn't be.
