I usually start tight and don't use a big margin. I'm taking notes now more than ever. Yesterday in for the long haul, running so good, making raises as fit for the starting hands. Getting callers that followed me to the river, I was flopping straights and flushes even boats, it was such a rush they came so many. I think I was getting so many calls because I was betting so much.
Then after 2 and a half hours I was still getting good cards, I was getting calls by donkeys so late in the game and they were hitting. I went from first to worst in five hands. It was a freeroll but the investment of time gets me. they go into their little chat rooms say how good they played and play. Not knowing any odds on betting and on drawing or how to play speculation bets. Its crazy I tell you, good cards to you.
I love when i'm on a heater like that. when every hand you play you hit the flop hard, seems like at worst you flop 2 pair, normally a set or open ender/flush that always hits on the turn for you. You know it won't last forever but it is sure nice while it lasts. In a freeroll, you have to expect to get it in ahead and get rivered sometimes, people will get it in behind but hit a long shot for 2 outer on the river.
