I wouldn't give blind-on-blind 1/2 nlhe a second thought. From the sb I'd prolly just shove monsters and fold the other 95%. It's a dollar. Assuming the GN is still uncapped on the buy in.

Walking through zombie homeless types that frequent the Main Street bus station is just part of the costs of getting that ice cream fix.

Re: Suitedjustice's Ongoing Mid-life Crisis

Sorry for the lack of poasts lately. Nevada 'rona cases per person have jumped up to around double the national average since the casinos reopened, and in response I've been trying--unsuccessfully--to hit a big score online. If I don't hit anything today or tomorrow, I'll probably be back to playing live on Wednesday.

Here's a tough spot BvB from just a few minutes ago.

Yatahay Network - 600/1200 NL - Holdem - 9 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

MP+2: 49,867
CO: 103,207
BTN: 79,577
SB: 60,881
Hero (BB): 61,398
UTG: 56,734
UTG+1: 33,573
MP: 50,000
MP+1: 96,416

9 players post ante of 150, SB posts SB 600, Hero posts BB 1,200

Pre Flop: (pot: 3,150) Hero has 5 A

fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, SB raises to 4,013, Hero calls 2,813

Flop: (9,376, 2 players) J 7 9
SB bets 2,344, Hero raises to 9,376, SB raises to 56,718 and is all-in

Never been to Lappert's, actually. I'll have to try it.

I've walked around downtown in the wee hours quite a bit, as I lived in the Main Street/Stewart/Eastern/Fremont St quadrangle from 1998-2006, several of those years without a car. Outside of the casino area and bus station it's more empty late at night than dangerous. Maybe I've been lucky on that front.

As far as blind play goes, we're in the blinds 40-50% of the time when we're 4-5 handed, so it matters how you play. That said, I still haven't looked into it as much as I should.

Do you never overlimp either? I hope you do (occasionally), since it can be a quite profitable play.
Yes, I will overlimp a modest amount. My VPIP/PFR percentage in full ring tournies online is around 17/13, with about 40% of that 4% gap representing overlimping, and with the rest of it being flatcalling.

Thanks fidstar! Everybody limps at $1/$2, but it can still be profitable to bump it up and take it down pre or on the flop. You have to find the right number, aka the threshold of pain, to get enough people to fold. That number differs from table to table and from hour to hour. It can be as low as $6 + $2 per limper, or a raise to $40 could still get you 3 callers. You have to read the table.

Metro police have been harassing the homeless at the bus station quite a bit lately. They don't hang out there much any more.

Yeah I thought city of Las Vegas criminalized being homeless. I mean yeah like most people I donít like dealing with homeless people but being homeless isnít a crime.

Being homeless isn't a crime, but at certain places, it's illegal to wander/roam/prowl/loiter (whatever the most appropriate verb).
