BLOG: Lucky Donk

Tags: blog, blogger The Prince of Freerolls
Blog post published on Thursday, February 27, 2014, written by The Prince of Freerolls.
Working at a busy casino in one of the UK's major cities understandably means that you get large amounts of rookie players making their first timid steps into the live poker world. I enjoy it. To be honest, it's the only time when I'm dealing for players that are less knowledgeable about the game than I am. I make sure they use the right chips, play in turn and know the etiquette. I try and keep [...]   Read more » Lucky Donk

Excellent Blog.
I also think that poker is a game of information, that is why on many occasions I put notes to my opponents and I keep on the computer, and then use them as you receive inaformacion of play.
What ever is done and play with any software, because I do not feel comfortable playing with software.
Will that still do not understand how these software work, but I'm sure that would be the best way to get Information.
Now do not know if this information serves to play Freerolls because there is played in a very very different but lso tournaments with entry fee.
well that's my opninion.
and sorry for my English which is not even very good.

Information is very important but sometimes i wonder if you can have an information overload and over analysis every hand when its best to go with your gut feeling. It depends on the player i guess

yep thats why i always lose money on purpose too. So one day, maybe, ill be able to get it back and maybe even win some more on top of it.

Tongue

but yea im sure some people do that on purpose, especially in live play. I also know about people who do it online too, entering shortstacked and shoving all kinds of hands, i think that might be to trick the tracking software so once they lose a few short BI whoever is using any software (and most are anyways), will automatically label them as a donk.

not that i would have to do such a thing, im a donk by default, so dont have to act it (D:

Yeah very good players does that, enter ting a game and playing like a donkey so stats are skewed, some players play differently for some time and let people adjust to the wrong play and they then make profit of them because they adjusted wrongly. That's a nice strategy, also some people don't like donk bet, and always think it shows strength and folds to it and some never folds to it and play back aggressively!

You know how to resume a story. If information is the most important thing for a poker player when on a table, then misinformation has got exactly the same value, and the best player at the table will be the one who better judge all the information that is shared along the game. Donks sometimes end up being the best, not because they read and understood correctly everything that was transmited along the game, but because their hands and the way they played them was above any kind of signs that may have been passed before and during each hand won that made them get to the end alone at the table. Perhaps, when reading this last line again, we can conclude that may mean the the good "readers" weren't good enough against the one who wasn't reading anything. It happens!
