  1. What's up y'all. Was working on a transfer with HoosierAlum and realized I hadn't posted here in forever.Anyway, it's kinda lame to only come in when I have reason to brag, but after trying to go on my own a little short-rolled in January and losing all my money, I found a new staker in February and within a week finished 2nd in the Sunday Million for 143K. So yeah, I'm looking pretty good right now with enough of a roll of my own to play 10/20 PLO considering how rarely the games are good that high. I post on 2+2 about 100x more than I post on FCP now, but this is where I first got serious ab
  2. Haven't posted here in a while, but I thought I'd post my graph of the last 9 months. As you see, I'm in a pretty extended downswing. Basically, here's how my problems started:Game quality goes down at 3/6+ 6-max --> I start playing more HU/cap --> I lose money because I suck at HU/capHowever, I've been staked through pretty much the entire graph, and I've got enough money together that I think I should be able to play 2/4 on my own, so that's kind of my plan at the moment. There's still a ton of soft 6-max games at that level, and my stats on regular 6-max are still really good, even
  3. God, I'm starting to hate poker right now. Here's my October graph: Notice that on this graph, my winrate's actually -2.8 PTBB/100, meaning that I'm down < 10 BI on the month. However, I've been winning at 3/6 and 5/10 while getting destroyed at 10/20 and 25/50 cap. Also, the 25/50 cap is just about the softest game on Full Tilt and I've been game selecting really strictly on it so it's not like I'm "not good enough" to beat those stakes or something, I'm just running awful when I play there. (Obv not on all-ins, but missing flops, getting coolered, etc.)
  4. Loving October so far. I can already tell it's going to be a super-fun month.
  5. Well, deducting my cash game losses, I finished the month +66K. That was still on a 50/50 split, but I'm leaving most of my winnings online so I'll have 75% of my action starting in October, and hopefully all of it in the not too distant future.
  6. Whoo hoo, I love FCP. Here's my first cash game session since posting my September graph:
  7. Really well actually. I've gotten to the point that I rarely tilt and if I do, it's not some all-encompassing thing where I'm going crazy for a whole session, I usually just play more hands for 10 or 15 minutes, maybe throw in one bad bluff or bad call on the river.
  8. OK, let's see how lucky this forum is. It worked for the donkament, so here's my cash game graph for the month.
  9. Nah, still splitting with my backer. I should be able to get at least 75% of my action by the end of the month if not all of it the way things are going though.
  10. OK, I'll post here. $1050 PLO: 3/742, $106,203.72
  11. Wow, I think you might be on to something there. That two and a half week stretch where I didn't post here was my worst stretch all year.
  12. For all of you who don't feel like checking the rail call thread, I made a deal 3-handed for 106K and then ultimately finished 3rd when we played it out for 10K more and the bracelet. This is 3x better than any previous tournament cash and almost 3x better than my best cash game session.
  13. Thx to all who railed BTW. I've been kind of in my own little world the last few hours, but I do really appreciate the support from those of you who have known me since I first registered here back when I was still in college. And from the noobs too of course.
  14. Yeah, pretty hard to feel bad when I made better than 2nd place money in the deal. I'm really really happy with my finish tonight. If anything, I think I might have gotten just a little distracted after we made the deal and there was "only" 10K left to play for.
  15. Only needed 6th actually, already got there.
  16. Still with chip lead. 7 left now.
  17. I've got the chip lead at the 9th break. 18 people left.
  18. Could be getting unstuck for the month tonight. 2nd in chips in the $1050 PLO WCOOP event with 48 remaining.
  19. Hey, sorry I haven't checked in for a while. During football season, I've got about 10 extra websites I check ahead of FCP. I only bet $200-$500 a game most of the time, but it's a nice distraction when I'm sick of poker.Anyway, I don't feel like posting graphs or anything, but I'll just say that I finished August up ~15K and then have been getting crushed in September. Down about 40K at the moment. Did things like win $15K off of someone HU at 5/10, then agree to move up to 10/20 with them and lose 25K there. Anyway, I finally decided that HU's too swingy and my edge there is really small if
  20. Just reached this goal. Unfortunately if I was in a better mindstate, I probably would have waited until tomorrow to get over the hump instead of putting in an 1800 hand session against a pretty decent reg at 10/20 and losing $25K. Here's a graph of all 30K hands:
  21. WTF were you doing check/calling the flop in the first place? That's awful. Either lead or C/R.
  22. Just checked the EV graph for the match, it's pretty LOL. Maybe I didn't really outplay Erich Kollmann after all.
  23. New biggest pot I've ever played. Always nice when you can get your 50.1% favorites to hold up.

  24. Just a little reminder that when playing HU PLO, most of your winnings will come from your opponents' tilt. Villain in this hand was a solid reg who's a little on the nitty side: Yeah, guy. I'm sure that 8's good all the time.
  25. Oh OK. That makes more sense. I actually tend to 3-table when I play HU too, but it only really works well when I get the same person to play me on all 3 tables.
