A Little Rush

So after a little break from playing poker, I jumped back into some Rush Poker this week on Full Tilt. Rush Poker is poker on crack, played at warp-speed as you jump from one table to the next without a moment to catch your breath. Multiply that by four tables, and it’s the illusion of utter chaos. 800 hands an hour. I played a six hour session and churned out 5,000 hands – more hands in one session than I have been able to achieve in some previous months.

It took a while to adjust to the style of 6-max cash again after playing exclusively HU for the last 10 months. I found myself calling too light and generally spewing. So I tightened up the reigns, and when you throw in the ridiculous amount of rakeback, it’s probably a good option for me with my limited playing schedule.

While there are plenty of regs there, there’s still plenty of value. I mean, check out this hand from today’s session. I flatted AK in position as there were some aggro players in the blinds, so I was trying to induce a squeeze. I’ll sometimes call in position with big pairs/hands, and sometimes I’ll 3bet. This time I flatted and, well, I was clearly outplayed.
