Sometimes you just need a break.

 

For the last two months I’ve been doing a whole lot of losing and not very much winning while playing poker. It all started with a very bad run of cards that I was getting while playing online. Every bad beat imaginable. However, this post is not about bad beats. They are part of poker and we all have to deal with them. Furthermore, no run of bad cards lasts this long.

 

I have determined that the main reasons why I have not been making money at limit tables or even making the money in tournaments is because I am too stressed. It started with the bad beats I was getting on Ultimate Bet and Poker Stars. In the course of several days I busted on both sites, about $200. Not that big of a deal but it started the downward spiral. I realize now that after a few tournament wins I felt like I was going to win every SNG I entered. So rather than playing poker I just threw my chips around assuming I would win. And when I didn’t, I felt somehow shorted. This is not the attitude to have at the poker table. I started setting myself up to lose.

 

Rather then rethinking my game, I kept this attitude that I am supposed to win all poker games at the home games I was playing chericasino.net and on my trip to Windsor, Canada. However, once I received a bad beat my stack quickly disappeared because I went on tilt. For some time after I didn’t realize I went on tilt but I can see it now. Instead of blowing it off I started playing hands way to strong against the weaker players. I would be …

Woodlands man wins big after staking only $32 – Qiu Qiu Online Terpercaya

Dean, 24, of The Woodlands, recently placed seventh in the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, earning $675,000 in his first tournament against Qiu Qiu Online Terpercaya veteran players.

His big winnings all began with a $32 stake.

“It cost me $32 to win the entry fee online,” Dean said.

The World Series of Poker has a $10,000 entry fee; last year’s tourney winner, accountant Chris Moneymaker (yes, the name is real) brought the game to broader popularity because he qualified in an online tournament.

“Texas Hold ‘Em,” as played in the World Series of Poker, is a no-limit game where a player can risk all his chips with every draw of a card, guaranteeing high-stakes action.

Dean, the son of Rick and Heather Dean of The Woodlands, was one of the youngest players in the tournament. A 1998 graduate of Oak Ridge High Qiu Qiu Online Terpercaya School and a member of its varsity tennis team, he graduated last year from Southwestern University in Georgetown with a degree in accounting.

He was introduced to “Texas Hold ‘Em” in college.

“I played for pennies at my frat house,” he said. “The guys would get together on Wednesday nights; and as we got more into the game, we’d bet more.”

Then last summer, Dean and his best friend went to Columbia, S.C., home of the University of South Carolina, hoping to make some Qiu Qiu Online Terpercaya summer cash as waiters.

“We were both overqualified and underqualified,” Dean said. “We couldn’t find jobs, so we started playing poker online and won about $1,000, which was enough money for the summer.”

After spending the fall semester in law school and determining that being an attorney wasn’t for him, Dean came back to The Woodlands and got a long-term math …
