Just a quick update on my new limit poker obsession. I've now played a total of seven sessions of limit poker since I decided to back down from the no limit game. I've had six winning sessions where I've averaged between $80-$100 profit and one losing one where I lost $100.
Tonight I was out at Prairie Meadows sitting at a table 7 and I glance over at table and 8 and spot none other than Grange95 and almost his whole Ironmen of Poker crew. They were at a table with a bunch of white $1 chips, so I thought they were playing $3-$6 limit too but the dealer at my table informed me they were playing $4-$8 Limit Omaha with a half kill. It sounded like they were having a blast playing their usual splashy brand of poker. A few of the comments overheard from the table:
"I better be nice. I'm going to be sleeping with him later. Well...near him."
Dealer to the one pushing into the game: "You won't get many hands out, but you'll have a good time."
Grange95 to a player joining the game: "We all just put a bunch of money in the pot and then she tells us who won at the end."
Later in the evening they converted the table to a $1-$2 No Limit Holdem table. Everyone had to reduce their stack back to the max buyin for that game of $300. One of the guys from my $3-$6 game was moving to that table. I told him, "Have fun! If those guys play like they normally do you won't be starved for action."
Edit to add: I forgot to mention that I do have one TBC like habit. After winning sessions I always put ten dollars in the video poker machine and play $0.25 Jacks or Better. I play til I either lose it or double the ten bucks and then I go home. Just a dumb little superstition, but I love the video pokerz.
