I Give Up & Join Partypoker

I've heard so much from Iggy about the fish on partypoker, that I finally signed up and resolved to lug home my PC offce laptop to play with. At home of course, boss! Only at home!

Anyway, I knew there were bad players but jebus, I was unprepared. Because people played such crap, I realize it takes a whole different approach on this site. Now I have to get that down and keep reminding myself that there will always be a sucker staying in to try and hit his flush draw. Always. Does this stop being true at higher limits? Anyone? (I was playing 1-2 to start)

Well, my name won't be much of a surprise if you see me there, so I'm going to try and join some of the other poker bloggers online some night soon. Whee!

awesome, welcome to the biggest aquarium in the world. :)

it really doesnt get any better until you hit the 5.10 games. but even there, and the 15.30, for that matter, has some truly awful players.

Boy, if you think 1-2 is bad, try .5-1. Really. Check it out sometime and witness the worst poker you've seen in your life. I had to play there for quite some time to build the bankroll. Believe it or not, I managed to win about $90 on that level before some nice tournament finishes and a few blogger tables boosted my bankroll enough to move to 1-2.

The only real difference between 1-2 and 5-10, from what I've seen, is aggression. There's a slightly higher percentage of good players at the higher levels, mostly because so few fish can afford to toss away bets at 5-10, but if you play strtaightforward, solid poker you should be okay. I wouldn't give 5-10 a shot, though, until I had at least $3000 built up. I tried about 30 hands once, got lucky and won two pots with KJo and AA, and turned around and left. I was way out of my league bankroll-wise and I realized how scared I'd end up playing because of it.

Enjoy the seafood buffet!
