$1500 6 max todayJun 03, 2009 – 11:06AM
The 6 max event is today. Every day I feel like I talk about how I was looking forward to today's event, then I just looked through this schedule for my first trip down here and realized i'm looking forward to every event. I really don't want to bust out of today's early event, but if I do the $2500 PLHE/PLO mixed event, which I feel is one of my stronger events, is later that day. This year i'm probably most excited about the PLO and 6 max events as I feel I'm much stronger than most of the field in both of those. Next is probably the $2500-$5000 no limit events, as i feel I'm pretty strong when the stacks start out a lot deeper. I think the $1500-$2000 no limit events are good, but unless I can run my stack up to 10k or so before the antes get in play I feel like it handcuffs my game a bit as I really like to try and exploit bad players post flop, but unless you have a decent amount of chips you can't be seeing too many flops.
I felt like I made a few small mistakes out of frustration yesterday, which in the grand scheme of things didn't cost me anything i don't think, but still something I try not to do. I had a REALLY transparent player on my left who was betting nearly full pot with strong made hands and half pot or under with weak made hands. He never bluffed, even as a semi-bluff with draws. If he wasn't the pre-flop aggressor (which was most of the time) he would donk bet full pot with good hands and check/call weak hands and draws. Check fold misses. There were some really weak/tight players at the table too. It was a great table it just didn't work out. I had AK vs the transparent player and whiffed and his 74s nailed the flop pretty hard and i put a few more chips in the pot than I should have after I knew that he hit it, but that was the only big mistake I remember.
As a side note, Lock Poker is redesigning this website so you should see a new version of it going up in the next week or so. I know it was just redesigned but Lock Poker has a world class design team (not to take anything away from the person who designed this) and is going to be able to do a lot of really cool things with the site. They have some great ideas and I'm really looking forward to seeing them in action. I think you guys will enjoy the new look and features as well!
