A voyage of discovery..

Ok, so Captain Cook (microgaming) is running good now too. I was down about $80 at one stage, recovered to be up $50 and then yesterday took a massive down-and-up swing on one table. The usual story, aggressive fish sucking out a few times before finally handing most of it back calling down with second pair and capping turn and river with top pair bad kicker. I have finished about a third of my $200 bonus (which takes me about 20 actual hands per dollar playing a mix of 1/2 and 0.5/1).

If anyone wants to play on CC, let me know your email address and I will send a referral - there is a pretty decent refer a friend bonus on top of the 50% up to $200. If you don't want your email address to be visible on this blog, simply post it in a comment and then delete the comment - I will receive it via email but it will not remain visible on the blog.

I also played an Omaha table and made a quick $30. I will experiment with a bit more Omaha in the coming weeks, as I think it is pretty fishy overall and has high average pots compared to the blinds. I suspect Omaha may well be the right place to play on OnGame when I attempt to cash a couple of PSO bonuses there (Hollywood and PokerRoom), as I have not had a lot of success there playing limit HE.

its good when the fish give it back to you.

gives u the sh1ts when they suck it out off you and give it back to everyone else though ...

Ohhh yes indeed, I hear you. They always give it back in the long run in the "grand scheme", but sometimes that's a slow process :)
