Another meh week. At least I didn't lose money! Nothing really to say, other than playing 6 max is really magnifying some of the leaks I have. Pretty much a monkey can play the early positions correctly, but there are a lot more interesting spots in the later positions.
Yesterday I alluded to what I think are bet sizing errors vs fish. I generally keep all my bet sizes the same - slightly more than half pot on the flop, and roughly 2/3 on the turn and river. I have software that types in the bet amounts for me, so it minimizes the number of keyboard click I have to make. Also, I don't give off any bet sizing tells. But in seeing how often I get floated by fish with all kinds of crap, I think I really need to bomb "more" streets (both for value and as a bluff). This will make it more profitable for me in the long run. I also need to reconsider my bet sizing vs regulars in FR and 6max, but I'll have to think it over some more. Picking a few extra blinds on a street bet is basically the difference between a 2ptbb winner and a 3+ptbb winner. I'll probably mull this over some more while I'm on vacation.
I made several cashouts via bank wire two weeks ago, and it still hasn't hit my checking account yet. The wires used to take a day or two, but some of the payment processors have been having some "issues" - the Dept of Justice (legally/illegally?) seized their funds. The next few months should be pretty interesting for the future of online gambling. Legislation to curb the flow of funds for online gambling should go into effect June 1. In the mean time, there are several pieces of legislation aimed at legalizing online gambling. Needless to say, playing poker for a living is going to suck if I can't get my money out.
I've been pretty smart of keeping a minimal amount of funds online. But it's always annoying when you can't get access to your money.
