Playing the Rush

Spent about 40 mins on Rush Poker last night and turned the $9 I had left on FullTilt into $40. At the moment the game is very very easy. I played a simple strategy of good cards or good position. There are a lot of people raising in LP trying to take the blinds without a fight so defending blinds with a reraise has a very high success rate. Also a lot of people simply raising and then potting any flop and folding to either a raise or a float and bet on the turn. I won a lot of pots with no showdown simply by doing this, at least a third of my winnings I would say.
Busted out of my last $4 180 yesterday when a Frenchie decided to defend his BB to my MP raise holding J2, which was good enough to beat my AK thanks to the J high flop. Genius. I continue the good fight….

Hard to notice anyone at the rush tables, unless you happen to be in a hand with them. Keep at it, hands have to hold up eventually

Sorry for the nasty beat in the WBCOOP #1.

Hey -- should you ever have the time, the standard tournament for many US bloggers, The Mookie, is every Wednesday @ 10:00pm Eastern time @ Full Tilt. Not sure what time of day or night that would be for you.

Best of luck!

Hi lightning36, I did stay up to play a mookie once, unfortunately it's 3am here when it starts so I have been feeling really degenerate to play !
