Hey! Look! Something Resembling A Real Post! Who'da Thunkit?...
Actually got a helpful hint from another player that I wuz giving away my bluffs, because I wasn't betting as much when I bluffed as I would when I actually *had* the hand -- so now I deliberately bet my bluffs *identical* to how I would with the real deal, and my game has improved considerably with just that one change.
Haven't been on NLOP fer ages since I got peeved at their customer service department over a poorly handled technical issue I had with them -- with customer support being part of my own job, I'm probably less tolerant of imperfection in that area than most -- the wife was playing on that site too, so if she ever decides to try and work with them on the issue, I might go back -- but fer now, I've got accounts at four other sites under the name 'Rex Ferric' ('rex_ferric' at PartyPoker), which I will now list here along with my current 'play money' balance at each:
Full Tilt Poker - 17416
Bodog Poker - 9500
UltimateBet - 2175
PartyPoker - 1021.97
