Welcome to the (once again) new rizenpoker.com!Jun 08, 2009 – 21:06PM
I'm sure everyone who has made it here noticed that the look and feel of rizenpoker.com has changed. The wonderful (and might I say quite talented) design team at Lock Poker has done a substantial overhaul to the look and feel of the site. As always, I do appreciate any feedback anyone has on the new site and will take all of it into account.
I'm back home now for a few days before heading back out for the WSOP. The $5k I felt I played really well in and chipped up great, even after losing a pretty big pot in the first 10 hands with pocket kings. With 3 hands left to go in the day though at a completely new table the CO opened the pot. I had no clue how he played but I had QQ so I re-raised him. When it came back around he 4 bet me and at that point I felt like I had to decide if I wanted to go all in or fold. Without knowing much about the player having only been at the table an orbit or two and him raising in the CO and me 3 betting on the button I shoved all in and he snap called with AA. I didn't get there and went from about 75k chips to out at the end of the day. It was a cooler, although if I had been at the table long enough to have a stronger read on the guy maybe I know more and can make a better decision.
I'm disappointed I didn't cash or make a day two while I was out there on the first trip, but hopefully I'm saving all my run good for the later events! I obviously missed 'Ask Rizen' last Friday. Quite honestly with the WSOP I barely even remember what day it is. I will probably be a little hit and miss on the 'Ask Rizen' feature until after the WSOP, although I will do my best to keep doing it every Friday during the Series.
