Welcome mobsters, if you are reading this blog for the very first time, I thank you for your initial interest. I think that if you give it a little time, you will find something that will peak your interest.
I am a semi-pro poker player and an author. I am currently working on several projects for publication, and will be discussing them on occasion in this blog. If you are a fan then I warn you, from time to time there will be spoiler book ideas discussed
Section 1: Poker Tips & Concepts
The Bluff - There are players who try to bluff far too often.
While it should and can be a very effective tool in your poker playing arsenal it will lose its power to aid you if you try to use it too much. One of the key things required for you to have in order for a bluff to work is a good table reputation.
I put forth that if the players on your table see you as a solid, tight, serious player then you can once in a while use the bluff club from your bag of tricks. If however the players at your table view you as an idiot fish who is very loose and a weak poker player then you will not get away with bluffing much.
Also, every time you try to bluff and get caught and lose, you will be hurting your table reputation even more. I recommend to most players to bluff less and tighten up their overall game and when they do most time they become much more profitable players.
Until next time
Section 2: "Ronin's Bankroll Management Challenge"
Well this section is going to be familiar to the forum regulars as I have been running this section for awhile in the forums, It is about the single most important skill a poker player must have in their arsenal in order to be a successful winning player.
Bankroll Management has been estimated to be the single most neglected poker skill by almost 95% of all players. Countless books have been written on the subject, and yet most players most often just ignore the rules of proper bankroll management.
I too fall into this trap at times.
This section is intended to show how proper bankroll management can ensure that and good poker player who approaches his bankroll and poker play from a solid and disciplined position can succeed.
It also is intended to help me to remain focus and discipline in my own bankroll quest to succeed.
The next 60 bankroll challenge will begin Thursday May 08th, 2014.
Section 3: The daily rant.
Have you notice how the prices at fast food restaurants have all gone up lately while at the same time the quality and portion sizes have both gone down. I do not mind paying a little more for my convenience food purchases which I know are bad for my diet when the quality is good. It does however tick me off when they raise the price and lower the quality of what most people would agree is less then great food to start with.
Restaurants should curb their unending desire to greedily make more money slightly and at least maintain the current low levels of food quality or it will cost them money and customers eventually.
Well until next time, be cool.
Section 4: The call of the Muse (Wednesday's)
This section will also be familiar to forum regulars. I am resurrecting Ronin's Short Story blog which I ran for a time. Yes mobsters I am going to write more poker based shorts here on BankrollMob.
So until later mates.
