Today’s Micro Stakes Poker lesson

Enjoy your exciting session in poker because they are few and far between.  This session was action packed.  At the end of this post I provided most of the exciting hands from the session.  There were many all-in hands.  I actually feel with all the winning I did I didn’t actually run that great.  There were still several sucks outs from wild players.

In the video below it’s starts at the wildest hand of the night.  Please click and watch.  I’m dealt pocket AA and we get it all-in in a three way pot.  Exactly the kind of hand AA would want.

As you can see I get sucked out by a player who calls my all in with nothing less that four three. It only makes sense for them to win right?  I don’t get discouraged by the hand at all and I keep hammering away at my opponents that night.

It’s not all bad though. Check out the 10 9 hand starting at 49:47.  I flop trip 9’s and my opponent pushes all-in.  I was left with no other option than to call and luckily for me he had nine seven to my ten nine and I win his full stack.

It felt light all night I was getting dealt premium hands.  It was a continuous stream much like the flow from the great lakes of Canada.

There is one more hand I want to show you that specifies how my night ran. At 36:24 in the video, I was holding 77 and raised it pre-flop.  The flop came 88A and so as such I continuation bet.  My opponent called and I turned a 7 giving me a full house.  At this time the pot was just less that a dollar and I wanted to appear weak to induce a bet or bluff so I checked.  My opponent also checked behind which was discouraging.

Since my opponent checked behind I decided to appear crazy and perform a way large over bet to $5.00.  I was unaware that my opponent turned and rivered two cards to make him a straight.  He wasn’t happy just calling my $5.00 bet, he put me all in and I instantly called him.  It must have been a major shock when he realized I had a full boat.  Such is life at Micro Stakes Poker.

Below are the notable hands.  When you click on each it will bring you to the exact correct time in the video.

Loose Chips Sink Ships Micro Stakes Poker Season 1 Episode 16

Today’s Micro Stakes Poker lesson

I provide in video format a glaring example of why loose chips sink ships. 

I started by breaking my starting hand rules. If you have watched any of my videos I play extremely tight from early position like Under the Gun and Middle position and from the Cut Off and Dealer button I loosen up.  During this session I began calling from early position with less than premium hands.

Micro Stakes PokerMy dealer button rule, which I’m currently sticking with is to raise literally any hand from the button if there were no other players limping or raising before me.  I think this strategy works for me at the $2 and $5 buy in tables.

The strategy that I added, which I think might be failing is to also raise any hand from the cut off.  It just didn’t work and possibly even the bad players realized I was playing to loose and fast to always have it.

As a result I was getting way more calls than I wanted and my continuation bets on the flop were getting called and raised with much greater frequency.  This left me with tough decisions on the turn.  Way too often I was left to decide whether to simply give up the hand or make a much larger and scarier two barrel continuation turn card bluff.

The results were a loosing proposition.  Expect to see my future videos of me playing extremely tight poker. Continue to watch my videos of Micro Stakes Poker and you will be a winner too.

This was a uneventful session other than the fact I was up one full buy-in at Micro Stakes Poker.  I won some and lost some and I played pretty aggressively.  All in all I’m happy with the results.

I started the poker session with $62 and ended with $67.  If my math servers me correct that is $5.00 or the equivalent of one buy-in.

Season 1 Episode 14 Micro stakes poker Fold pocket Kings pre-flop

In today’s session I perform a move that is suggested you should never do.  I folded pocket Kings pre-flop.  I know what you are thinking.  WHAT!!!! Are You Crazy !!!!!

Yes, I know I know and I agree.  Please watch the hand first before assuming I’m wrong.  It’s the last hand of the day so it’s easy for you to watch the hand.  

In the hand we had an “Under The Gun” Pre-Flop raiser.  I’m sitting directly beside the UTG raiser and 3 bet them from a 12cent raise to 55 cents.  The player directly to my left then 4 bet shoves all in after watching a pre-flop raise and re-raise.  I think the most likely hand is easily AA.  Slight chance of KK or QQ and very slim chance of AK.  I’m way behind AA here.  I’m about a 70% chance against AK and of course I’m way ahead of QQ.  

I just don’t believe I need to gamble with these hand ranges here.  There are better places for me to get all my stack in.
