    Yeah but nothing too high. The highest I have bought in for was 300 earlier this month.

    My tourney game is pretty woeful as I lose patience pretty easily I find when I'm not hugely stacked!

    My next goal is to work on my heads up NL holdem game and then get my multitable tournament game sorted out. THen hopefully try to get good at omaha or something like that.

    I think the diversity in options will make me a better player and keep me more interested in the game on the whole.

    Now playing Cash tables on fulltilt.

    Doing reasonably well, just winning my biggest pot of $100 with Pocket 9's. Flopped a full house against someones trip 7's.

    Poker is absolutely massive in Australia, or atleast in eastern suburbs sydney!

    Most of the players start off in free buy in tournaments (or effectively that amount) at first then work their way up if they get more into it.

    Nicely done though.

    Some mates and I are going to go monthly to the casino and play small stakes. As much for the experience as the money. I've stopped playing online for a bit because of uni - I've found that you need to be incredibly self-disciplined.

    I used to play for money and was wicked at that . Missus doesn't want me to gamble for any thing so all of my friends after playing a hectic cricket match gather at my place and put 10 bucks each to play and winner orders pizzas or some other stuff ..........

    You've only had pocket aces once?

    No. It was the first time I'd ever gotten them at the casino when playing cash game.

    Worked out quite well. Was under the gun. Raised to $20 (Blinds are $1/2 mind you). Then the guy on the button moved all in for about $120. I instant call (Hellmuth style). My Aces hold up against his Queens.

    Nice problem with aces is they can get you in a lot of trouble theres no definitive way to play them and they can often blind you with greed. (To get dramatic)

    Not so. Easiest way is to play them in a tournament or cash game is to push it all in pre flop. That way only the most premium hands will call you (Kings, Queens, Jacks, Ace King) and doesn't allow people to draw against you if the hand was to be played normally. Also, Jacks should fold.

    If someone does call you with kings/jacks/queens they've still got a 18.6% chance of winning though. With AK suited they've got an 11.5% chance against your aces. So you're not a definite win.

    You want to have your Aces called by crap, give them a chance to draw - yeah, sometimes they'll get there, but most of the time you'll win!

    You're never a certain win in a hand pre-flop, but id still rather push all in and be against Kings than let some suited connectors play.
