All i can say folks is WOW!. These tables are literally a goldmine. I played al little HORSE last week and made a little over $40 playing the $1/$2 tables. Last night however i seen some play on a HOSE (same as HORSE but without the RAZZ) that literally made my eyes wide with wonder. The average pot was over $25, so i sit down and proceed to play like a rock.

People were calling down with rag hands, chasing hi pots with single pairs in O8/Stud, and any low had 4/5 chasers. Anyway i sat down with $50, and apart from being hit with a few 2 outers it was a fantastic session and i left the table with $122 after about 90 mins.

I think ive found my new calling on Stars for a while, gonna leave the N/L tables for a while, and hopefully the donks on Stars will take a few months to get the hang of their new ring games, while a few of us milk them for all they are worth. :)

Aside from that, ive moved up to the $22 sit and go's. Ive only logged 30 games, but im finding them much softer than the play at the $11's, my current ROI is at just under 40% in them, very unstainable, but ive only come across about 2 games with play on them that i could call tough. They are well beatable, but ill grind out 150 of them and re-assess if ill move to the $33's.

Ive also found some nice new live games in my home town, on a small downswing in these but as usual the play is horrific, got busted last week when i brought my AA up-agaisnt 44 and 88 all-in P/F, and watched in horror at a 4 8 J flop and i was drawing to 2 outs, which of course never hit.

My data set in the multi-table razz and multi-table horse is just ridiculous. I am still at 100% ITM in the Razz! (ok ok only 6 played, but still ;) ). Shame they're a bit slow to fill up. The horse is at 58.6% ITM (after 29 played). Talk about un-sustainable, lol. Here comes the cold streak:)

Got to expect those to pull-in across a bigger data set obviously ;)

The only explanation about the razz is :-
a) that the players either dont know how to play it (obv)
b) or they only have a strategy of playing 3 small cards, and that is all they do, religiously (Not in itself a heinous crime, but still makes easy pickings in tournament play).

I must have a quick look at these cash tables you are doing well at :)

Estimated time to bubble bursting :- 1 month ;)

I hope they don't offer limits lower than 1/2 for a while yet, as many donks will move down. As it is, the play is hilariously bad (donks capping with awesome hands like KQ73 in O8, people calling down in Stud with no hand and no apparent draws vs. someone showing KK, people RAISING with a K up in Razz, etc).

Yep, laughable really

In stud the other day, some guy is showing trips in his upcards. He gets called on 6th and 7th street, and then the trips win.

Now, we didnt get to see the donks hand, but the winner ONLY had trips (ie not a boat or anything else), so the caller couldnt even beat what was showing and still calls 7th street! Jees

Interseting session at the HORSE tables last night. I brought $50 to the first table and won a $48 (YES on $1/$2) with a full house on Stud Hi/Lo, (no low) and opened a second table. Brought $50 to that as well, almost straight away won a $30 pot on RAZZ.

That was as good as it got for the night really. I missed every single lo draw after that, missed every single big draw on O8, and it culminitated in losing a big multi-way pot on holdem when my set of aces was cracked by A5 after he hit a gutshot on the river.

Still though only $25 down the the overall session, and the table are still very very beatable, just got brought down to earth slightly, hopefully tonight will go somewhat better.
