moving away from Rush

I played 2 tables of 9max, NON Rush poker tonight. I will add tables next week - I was simply too tired tonight. A losing session overall but it was all one hand - I took a stand with pocket eights vs. a 71/57 player who had three bet percent of 25%. He had AK this time and won the race.

This started him off on a rant of how bad I was and how he owned me, which I found humorous. I found it more humorous when he paid off my JQ two pair river bet with 9-2s
on a JQ964 board. Third pair, no-kicker, on a straighty board, good for a value call. He got me overall, but I have marked him for future encounters (hopefully).

I did some work looking over my database this week, an
d found that I wasn't three-betting enough. I have vowed to look for more opportunities to do this. Tonight I had good luck, especially on one table, where you can see my stats below. I ran 17/14 with a 10.4% 3 bet percentage in 201 hands. Looks like I'm finding some more opportunities.

I've moved away from Rush for the most part and only play it for short sessions every now and then. I find it just too difficult to keep the mental attitude needed to win long term. Get back to the basics and the stuff we know.
