Now I just like every other guy when it comes to annoyance with ridiculous anniversaries (ever had the 4 months since our first “I Love You” anniversary? yeah…) but this one is really something to be proud of. It is hard to believe I have enough useless knowledge / stories to fill up three months on a poker blog, and I just want to thank the people who read the stuff I choose to type out. I’d also like to apologize for being lazy (especially on weekends) when it comes to posting new stories, and thanks for putting up with it.
I was going to write about the tournament I run here at OSU and how I organized a Tournament Leader Board, but then I realized what day it was! In the spirit of anniversaries I want to go over some of my favorite posts, a special gift to some of the newer readers who haven’t bothered (I don’t blame you) to look through the old material. I think I may have written a lot of my best stuff to kick off the site when I didn’t have any readers! So without further ado, some of my ‘must reads.’
“Running your own tournament”
I really enjoyed writing this post, and I think its a great resource with some hands-on advice for running your own tournament. It can be for friends, fund raising, or for competition. One of the most important and most overlooked things in tournament Holdem is the tournament structure. Check out the follow-up about “Equipment for your Tournament”
“Checking the River”
What is poker all about? Maximizing profits. That’s what I discuss in this post about checking the river card in limit holdem. When you have nothing to gain and only something to lose, maybe it’s best to let them decide whether or not to bet.
“Trapping with the Cold Call”
There are a few moves in texas holdem that make me go “damn I’m a badass” and this is one of them. Watching someone fall helplessly into your trap is one of the most satisfying things in poker, and this article details one way to do so.
Now that the first 3 months are over I think it is time for you readers to come out of your shells and let me know what you want to hear about, post some comments and get involved! I feel much more inclined to post when I have proof people are reading what I write, haha. Peace and good luck!
