Hello all...I have entered the fray. See the exciting play by play action on my blog: TrueCakeChallenge.blogspot.com. I will also be updating the TNP blog with the highlights.
I have had two sessions so far. The first one was 20 hands long and I basically lost everything in an AA versus AdKd hand after Villain flopped four to the nut flush and I figure he thought he had an over or two as well. That put me in the hole from the get go and I'm starting off down 5%.
Second session was 100 hands long. Stacked AK with AA this time but lost chips on an odd hand. I raised with 99 and got one caller. Flop was 777 and Villain put out a feeler-ish looking bet. I min-raised (I know, I know). Got a flat call. Ace on the turn and a shove then I fold. Also had Ryan sit down at my table. Don't know if he noticed me.
I net out -37 cents from the second session and am now down to $47.29.
* What are your guys' ranges for hands to play?
* Do you steal blind from late position?
* Tell me what you would have done with the 777 flop.
* Am I being too nitty with my range of hands? (AA-88, AKs-ATs, AKo-AQo, KQs, KQo, QJs, JTs)
