October Results & Monitor Question
I really grinded the cash games this month. I don't think that I have ever played more than 25k hands in a month and I usually average between 15k-20k hands/month. I managed to get in just over 50k hands this month thanks to being a little slow at work (not working any late nights) and six tabling some towards the end of the month. There were some huge swings due to a some suckouts, coolers, and the occasional spew.
I only played four tourneys (Blogger big game, 1 FTOPS sat, and 2 PCA sub-sats) this month and don't really miss them. They are fun, but I have been in cash game mode and haven't had the desire to play a bunch of mtts.
I am going to try to grind the cash games again in November and maybe buy a bigger monitor. Playing six tables on a 17" laptop screen while sitting in the recliner, watching TV, and talking to my wife is probably not the best thing for my win rate. I am sure that I will get in a lot less hands, but hopefully they will be a lot more productive.
Any recommendations on a monitor? I am thinking about the Samsung 24" widescreen. The 30" widescreen is probably too big for my needs. Anyone have a Samsung 24" or 30" WS monitor? Thoughts?
Tough Turn Decision
I posted this on the cardrunners message boards and got some decent feedback. I would be interested in a few more opinions.
Villain (20 VP$IP/13 PFR%/2 TAF) had been calling a lot of my button raises from the SB. I had raised his BB from the button earlier on another table with KK and he flat called preflop with AA. The flop came King high and we got all the money in. He seems to be a little frustrated with my button raises but usually likes to c/r the flop with a big hand (sometimes with air) instead of 3 betting preflop.
