iPoker runs like a dog. Pacific runs like God on a scooter (apologies to whichever blogger I stole that from).
I found a beautiful fishy table at 2/4 on iPoker yesterday, with one 100/0 fish and another 80/40 maniac sitting on my right. Unfortunately the maniac sucked out a couple of massive pots on me, and then promptly handed it over to one of the table TAGs and left. Feeling pretty disgusted, I fired up a four $10 SNGs and busted out of all of them in double quick time. That was a tilt, I think.
A little later I played a couple of 2/4 tables on Pacific and won back 20BB or so to mollify my mood somewhat.
I have to say that in my observations of 2/4 in the last couple of weeks, I have found it to be actually a weaker game than 1/2. Is this possible? There certainly seem to be just as many fish compared to 1/2. Another element is perhaps that I am playing a little better at 2/4 because the stakes are significant compared to my bankroll whereas my play at 1/2 can get a bit undisciplined at times.
