Only played another small session last night, but should get in a longer session tonight. Played about half an hour but due to the time, there were relatively few tables running, and even fewer that were worth playing.
I've decided now to be a bit more strict on my seating position. I have been allowing myself to play on a table if there were basically at least two fish on the table, irrespective of my position. My new approach will be to only play on those tables if the player to my right is either one of those fish, or a tight passive. There's no point in playing if there's a LAG/TAG to my right, as I will be continuously raised off of hands preflop. I suspect though, i'd still play it if there were 3 fish on the table, but will see.
I will also accept a maniac on my right, as that gives me the opportunity to reraise to isolate, as well as limp reraise from time to time. Admittedly the maniac is going to be much higher variance, so i'd prefer the fish on my right, but i'm sure it will still be positive.
As far as play goes, in my session I did manage to play on a tightish $2/4 table with a maniac on my right, who donated me a good 15BBs in the space of around 20 minutes. I had to actually get up and leave the table and sit back down to get the right position on him, but it was well worthwhile with me just letting him bet into me when I had medium strength hands which generally held up. I also had a Bodog table running at the same time, which was super fishy with a couple guys with VPIPs over 70, and I had position on two of them. Unfortunately they then managed to suck out and destroy me with my AK losing to A2, AQ losing to Q4, nut flush losing to a rivered paired board for a full house and various other nasty beats to drop about 25BBs. So all in all the bankroll ended a few BBs up.
Current bankroll: $13,400
