A new post on an old favorite subject of mine – the idiots who think it is ‘cool’ and ‘smart’ to berate fish at the poker tables. This is a mixed games tale, for more of my writing on this subject you can pop over to Omaha Planet and check out the Mixed Game Poker section. Anyway, as usual the end of a busy day running the Planet Corp saw me relaxing with a game of cards – this time the $50 buy-in 8-game mix on Stars, a fun combo with 6 hands of each of the 8 different games. One particular player at the table was loose, passive and generally very bad, he entered most pots and only ever bet with the nuts or close to it, but called with any hand or draw – a strategy guaranteed to lose money fast. And guess what, he lost it fast, dropping half a stack or so and then reloading on 3 occasions in the 30 minutes I was there.
