  2. Also, I was hoping someone could offer me some advice...I'm trying to get more into HU since I don't have a HUD (Mac). As such, I was wondering if there's any videos/articles/forums someone could recommend for me to take a look at in order to improve my HU game.Many thanks for any suggestions:)
    CR has a lot of HU stuff. This thread as you know has some amazing posts from Matt, Jordan and all the rest. 2+2 also has a dedicated HU section I believe.From what I have read and seen, a HUD isn't nearly as useful at HU as it is at 6-max, it seems that it is more important to have good observation and make notes on a player. ETA: Not to say that a HUD isn't useful.
  3. Greatest Post Ever ;)But seriously, I absolutely get what you are saying and to a large extent, I agree. But I think for some people, that have absolutely extrinsic needs, they can live a life being balla and can be happy like that, but I don't think think that is the majority.I can totally relate to your position too, you were making plenty of money but didn't feel fulfilled. I'd be the same (if I was making lots of money, lol), sure I enjoy the game, I love it in fact and I love trying to learn and discussing the game, but even at 500/1000, I'd still be missing the satisfaction that comes from contributing something to the world. The few people that can play nosebleeds and not feel the need for some other form of satisfaction, the need to give back, well then perhaps the douchedom has spread to their head or they are yet to come to the same realisation you did.

  4.

  5. Almost got really pissed and quit around hand 1500. Glad I didn't. 0216graph-1.jpg
    Hey Bull, just wanted to congratulate you on your progress. :ts I remember not so long ago you were playing .10/.25 (even .05/.10 IIRC?), it's been great to see you move up and do so well.Hope I can start making the same kind of progress soon.
    Since I haven't posted a graph in awhile.My month at 50nl (moved up to 50nl on Feb 1)I am not doing too well for volume, but this month has been HECTIC with school and the thick of the bowling season, so I won't complain.
    Nice graph, and nice to see another bowler :club: What's your average?

  7. Villain in the hand is one of the best regs at 100/200nl games on Cerous. His name is Speeeedlimits. His stats are 30/21 and has been known to run bluffs and value bet very thin.

    Close one but I lean towards a call. You're showing a lot of weakness in this hand and he seems to be the kind of player to pounce on that. Think he shows up with TT, JJ and missed draws a lot here but ocassionally a set. IMO.
