Sklansky on Home Games

After talking for months about getting some sort of home game going, we finally decided to pull the trigger last night. We were supposed to have five players, but a few backed out and ended up playing a 3 handed combo game. Everyone in the game is a strong limit hold’em player, so the mixture would obviously consist of very little if any limit hold’em.


The games in the mix included:

-Beat the Ruski (a variation of hold’em giving the button extra cards at a severe price)

-Duece to Seven Triple draw

-Pot Limit Omaha

-Badagi

-Pot Limit Duece to Seven

-Pot Limit Five Card Triple Draw for High

-Limit Holdem


All the limit games were played 20-40, except Limit Hold’em which was played 40-80. And the Pot Limit Games were played with five and five blinds, and had a 400$ cap (the most any player could lose throughout the course of any single hand).


All in all it was a ton of fun, with some very interesting scenarios. By the end some of the games were dropped from the mix, leaving us playing pot limit five card triple draw for high, pot limit Omaha, and pot limit deuce to seven.


After making an 87xxx in deuce to seven after the first draw and checking raising the cap, I was called by a better 87; I had just lost my third consecutive caped pot. Still in the first hour of play I was stuck a little over $1500.


Now I was feeling like the huge fish in the game, wondering how many thousands I will go off for, before the game would finally break. But luckily for me, things started turning around and I clawed my way back to only being down ~300. We finished the night with a 20 minute session of 40-80 limit hold’em. I lost a few small pots there and ended up donating a smooth G unit to a couple fish …

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I feel good, I started take up real money.
It gets down to choose a correct companion who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, and shares the profit with me.

You can get interested, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please get to know about one of them:

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.
