Dear Dr Tom,
My girlfriend thinks that I am completely poker obsessed. It’s partly true, I guess. I mean, sure, I like to play a bit, be it online or with friends, but it almost seems as if I have become a bit of a bore in her eyes...
Dear Dr Tom,
I have issues with bankroll management. I know how important it is – yet I do not have the patience, or the time, to grind my way through the low stakes until I eventually have enough to play the stakes I want to play. What is your best advice for me? Is there some other way around this problem?
I was playing a NLHE STT with some friends when one of them went berserk due to a bad beat. He started moving all-in pre- or post-flop, regardless of position. He was getting lucky, and began winning some chips back until he had more chips than me...
What is acceptable to say when you are on the battlefield of a poker table and what is not? Paul Jackson discusses.
Bankroll management? Bankroll Schmanagement! That’s the biggest lesson I’ve learned from running the seminars at the Bluff Europe Poker Academy. The title of our first series was “what the pros know”, yet the strongest interest from my bankroll management lecture came from the pros themselves.
I’ve been doing well playing online sit-n-gos and regularly getting in the top three, or, to be more specific, the top two. You see, my heads up play seems to suck dramatically. Is there any general advice you can give for the heads up sit-n-go player?
James Akenhead was a whisker away from winning a bracelet at last year’s World Series. We caught up with him on the way to Vegas to chat about his obsessive personality, the healthy state of British poker and why Mickey Wernick thinks he’s the new Stu Ungar.
I always seem to get myself in a fix during tournaments in small blind/big blind confrontations. I never believe my opponent has anything, even when he’s re-raising me. I have never found any decent small blind / big blind tournament strategy in any of the books. What kind of hand ranges and situational aspects should I be thinking about? Advice please!!!
