Today's Word is... 'Seat'

Sometimes when I say some seats at a poker table are better than others, people just snicker. They think I'm kidding, because I make such a big deal in my teachings about not being superstitious.

Superstition, you see, does only one thing well. It reduces choices. It takes options out of your playbook and costs you money.

It Ain't Easy

It's not only "not easy"; it's hard as hell. On my personal scale, it was the second hardest thing I have ever done in my life. That is the line I use when someone ask me how I did it. Of course their next question is what was the first hardest thing. I jokingly say, "Not killing my husband when he broke my heart!"

Poker and Smoking

For the record, I don't smoke. I've been around a lot of people who do. A few of my friends smoke. It bothers me, but I never grumble out loud, only internally. I prefer to spend my money on books, instead of cigarettes. Reading is my habit of choice.

A Poker Tournament is Like a Movie

Poker tournaments are like movies. Both offer drama, excitement, exhilaration, shock, sadness, and silliness. There are expensive epics like the WSOP and serials like the World Poker Tour. A people's favorite, the "Fall Pot of Gold Tournament", is currently being played at the RENO HILTON to large crowds.

Winning Tournaments: A Frame of Mind

Attitude is everything in tournaments. Truly. Once you have mastered the basics, nothing will help you as much as a winning attitude that keeps you focused and keeps you from conceding or playing recklessly during the requisite hours of play.

Measuring Your Play

The past two NL Hold'Em tourneys I've played in produced these two results: the first was a win, the latest was an ousting on the bubble. If I were to measure the quality of my play on results alone, I would have to assume that I played better during my winning effort. In reality, though, I feel that I played much better during the tournament in which I lost on the bubble!

I made a couple of key mistakes in the tournament that I won. As the bubble approached, several players tightened up in order to reach the money spots.
