Let me introduce myself - I’m Daniel Thorn. I will be honest - I’ve never won at the WSOP. But for several years I’ve been making a living just playing poker online. When I deposit money I use only my AmEx Platinum. I think it tells volumes.
So, in this section I described the hands that were really played. I think it can be better than tons of poker literature. I tried to make it not only educational, but also entertaining. Read, enjoy and learn from my mistakes.
|My Beatiful Pocket Cowboys|
I don’t like folding pocket pairs at all. It’s like a superstition.
Four Is Better Than Three
There are still too many players (5, myself included). But this just makes the pot bigger.
Suited But Connected
He sees my Kd Qd. “Nh” – types he and disappears…
Never Ever Do It
I wasn’t that sure about my sixes, but I raised.
As I have said – never ever play trash hands. But I used to break the rules.
A Miracle Card
I noticed that though it belongs to the 2nd group according to Sklansky and Malmuth, I usually lose with this hand.
I should see the turn. Anyway, the amount I can get is worth calling one bet.
Better Than Doyle
So, I check. One of my two opponents folds and the second makes a bet. I can see the Turn rather cheaply and by the way I do believe in omens.
