NL is ruthless

June 24, 2011 by Lucas Pattison with No Comments

In a post bust-out interview, Erik Seidel was asked about how he played. His answer was, ‘well i played just about perfect with the exception of 2big pots i misplayed, so overall i played terrible.’

When i first heard that i, like the standard hot girl interviewing him, thought he was joking. but no–dead serious.

recently i returned to playing after a break long enough for much rust to accumulate. i played pretty well in my first 2 sessions but misplayed 2 hands pretty badly causing about a 1.5 stack difference to my bottom line. 150bb in 1500 hands is 10bb/100. i ended up -75bb so i lost at the rate i should have been winning at for this short stint. I’d have to say that i played quite well (not great) for 1498 hands. But overall, for the whole 1500, i played terrible.

NL is ruthless.

It appears that all the number-crunching has been completed, and the outlook is even worse than many people had feared. The results have come from respected consulting firm H2 Gambling Capital, who are based in Manchester and their assessment of the situation has shocked even the most pessimistic members of the global online gaming industry.
