the recovery begins

The soul searching that was brought on by getting busted..........

-I have joined a local book/social club.Actually I joined about a year ago,but never bothered attending any meetings ,or followed their reading suggestions.
'The marvelous life of Edgar Mint', is the book that will be discussed for the next month.I will purchase it on Friday,when I will be in the city centre taking my daughter to the cinema.
Often I have read a great book and not been able to discuss it with anyone in my current social network -I tell you this is very very annoying.Reading,educating and learning is not something that is appreciated by anyone I know -atleast no efforts are made anyway.

It will be a few days yet before I recover from the last few days' stressfull events.My brain is in no state to partake in any intellectual activity.Looking back,I have only ever had time for reading,when I have been in a happy stage of life.

As for poker.....
£20-£30 rakeback due for next week.I will probably deposit £50 on friday/sat.
No plans.No targets.
I'll see how the initial stages of adding abit of balance to my life will effect(or affect) my poker.

Obviously Texas Hold'em is one of the most popular games. There is a fine line between a good hand in hold'em and a marginal hand. Three of the same kind can be very profitable Hold'em, when two pairs as a rule cost a lot of money to the player. Both pairs seem to be very good, but certainly not worth the money that many players will bet on them. I can not tell you how many times I've seen a player play directly with any two pairs and be taken in by another player. This is typically the most poorly played hand in Hold'em.

The basic strategy of Hold'em poker is based on how much you pay attention to the style of each player being at your table. Players released are easy to spot and it will be easy to take advantage. Just wait to have a strong hand and let them run their loss with their bluffs. This is a strategy based on patience and observation. The player will probably released in a different way when he has a good hand. Observe the different styles of player released to help you identify the strength of his hand. The challenge when you are dealing with these players and be the first at the table they take their money.

Tight players are usually more difficult to uncover. They belong in general very little hands, so it will be harder to understand how they poker play. Your first challenge is simply to identify them. It is easier to ignore the opponents play only in very few hands. This is a skill that must acquire new players and this can not be done by playing multiple tables or watching TV. When these players are in a hand, you can be sure they have good hole cards. Do not be afraid of them, but be warned that you will need a fairly strong hand to beat them.


Tight players often follow a pattern, but it will take a little time to find out. A tight player making a decent raised before the flop can often win a pot with nothing if it is does raise after the flop. Use the cards face up and lift the right time to win a few pots at the expense of tight players. Flop a full card faces is a bad time to sit down with this practice, but if the cards are low, tight players bluff most of the time with their pre-flop raising. Remember, these players generally play with the best hands and are mostly not interested in putting a large amount in the pot if they have nothing good behind. If you get the chance, try to triple the exercise of a tight player after a flop. I think you'll find that you will win more pot than you would have predicted, poker when you have nothing.
