Muppet of the Day #12: bjc722

Following on with the theme of the last Muppet Award; calling-with-the-nuts-when-last-to-act-on-the-river, we have a new winner.

At least my fuck up (previous post's Muppet Award) was a genuine mis-read of my hand where I failed to see I had the flush- there is absolutely NO excuse here! Or has he missed seeing the straight and does he think he's calling with King-high!!?

Wow you been having some really great results. Question, on a bad day how many buy ins do you go in for until you quit for the session?

Smart Money said...

I've had two losing days that were more than 6 buy-ins. I may have several losing days a month, but typical only one -$1k day.

I'll quit when I'm pissed off and frustrated- not when I've lost a certain amount. Sometimes it may even be when I'm winning. E.g. I finished one day last month at +$2.3k but I had been at +$3k half an hour beforehand.

So, even if I've lost a load, if I feel like I'm playing well I'll generally keep going.

Interesting Mike - do you know how much you have won at any point during your sessions? I used to but dont anymore as it affected my decisions

Thanks for the advice. :) Could you give any tips for trying to play more games at once. Right now im playing 3 or 4 games, up from 1 or 2 and its hard adjusting.

I really lose focus of whats going on in the games. It becomes more about just playing my cards it seems.

thanks again.

Iain. Yes- I know how much I'm up or down at any point.

Just make sure you have PT/PAHUD running to help you with decisions. Then it's just a gradual step up as you get more experienced.

Do you use any scripts to help you multitable? If so, which ones?
I use an auto-reloader for instance which seems to make it a bit easier
