As any long time reader could guess, quiet is a theme here. I woke up in a weird mood, and forced myself to log on to the poker website to play (after feeding Fawn and making some coffee and instant oatmeal for myself).|
Well, my mood improved as I did fairly well at poker again today. I am going to do some bragging behind the following lj cut, so if you'd rather not read it you don't have to. I also have a shorter version of this entry in my poker journal with the exact percentages.
I knew I was doing fairly well. However, when I brought up the stats the poker site was keeping on me for this morning's session. I was blown away. At the time I saw the stats I had been winning over 25% of the total hands I had seen (including the pre-flop folds of course), and the two completely amazing stats were if I did see a flop my winning percentage was 67%.
But wait, there's more! If the hand went all the way to a showdown I was winning over 70% of the time!
I was only caught bluffing once, but that was because a short stack went all in. I got everyone else to fold, but I had to show my bluff to take the side pot (where most of the money was -- so even though I was "caught" I still won that pot too).
Of course after I saw those stats it went to my head and the stats started dropping. I then bailed out of the game so my bankroll didn't take too big a dent in the profits I made.
Ya know, if I can keep this going I just might learn to like the ugly graphics the poker website I just switched to has. (majorly key phrase -- *if I can keep it going*).
Well, my stomach just rumbled, so I guess I'll post this and then I'll have some lunch. My next cup of coffee should be done brewing by now, and I'll cook a sausage to go with it.
