playing poker and teaching science: GO COLTS!

Location: Indiana, United States

I'm a middle school science teacher, wrestling coach, poker player, scuba diver, aikido black belt, amateur writer, and student of life. In the past I have tried to give back a little by volunteering at a children's home in Belmopan, Belize, Central America. I also love Frosted Flakes. I have taken a year sabbatical from my teaching position in order to sail the Caribbean. Does that sound crazy to you?

Things are going well in Indiana! Wrestling season is in full swing, the Colts are heading for the Super Bowl, and I’ve doubled my on-line bankroll in the past month playing Omaha 8/b one-table tournaments.

Here’s a little trick that seems to pay big dividends: There is often one donkey at the table that raises too many pots, plays only for the high hand, and generally donks off all his chips in the first three levels. I play my best during this time and maybe rake in a few chips from him.

Here’s the play I’ve tried successfully on several occasions: After the donkey is gone and I’m dealt a premium hand, I announce that I liked his strategy and start raising on the flop and the turn.

There are always a couple of takers who think I’m raising with junk and get sucked in. When I scoop a pot, it’s a big one and making the nut low always has some dead money in it.

Give it a try.

It can’t be said too many times: GO COLTS!!!!!!

A little joke:

Mama Bear and Papa Bear are getting a divorce. Along with their baby Bear they are in front of the judge deciding whom baby bear is going to live with. The judge asks:
- Would you like to live with your mama Bear? The baby Bear answers:
- No, she beats me!
- Well, how about your daddy Bear? Again the baby Bear answers:
- No, he beats me too! The judge replies impatiently:
- Then who do you want to live with? Baby Bear looks around, and says:
- I’d like to live with the “Chicago Bears”- they don’t beat anybody…

Go Colts!!!
