Precipitous Drop in Hell's Ambient Temperature

Or maybe it's just variance. Whatevs.

I made a small tweak in my 1/2 cash game. Just a little one. And the results have been startling. Instead of winning small and losing big, I'm losing small and winning big. Two substantial gains in two sessions. I know, I know, not a statistically meaningful sample.

Perhaps it's all coincidence. Dunno.

But I'm going to keep up this new approach for awhile and see how it goes.

In the meantime, I'm mightily looking forward to the 2K Guarantee at Harrah's 1pm Megastack Tournament tomorrow. One-fitty gets you 20K in starting chips, a sweet slow structure, and half-hour levels. A bunch of AVPers are playing; y'all come too!

Sometimes those little tweaks are all it takes. Sometimes our biggest leaks are the simplest things. I hope the winning continues.

You're still tempting me with that Harrah's tournament... I like that it is now guaranteed.

What was this tweak CG? C-betting less? More positional play? Dropping a hand type like off-suit connectors...?

I love it, when I find a small thing in my game, that turns out to make a big difference. It can be a real motivation booster.
