  1. Got stream working . Interesting first hand.
  2. Cards in the air in an hour? Thought it was starting now. Either way pool is closed.
  3. Cheers. My various chrome add ons seem to be blocking most of the annoyances.
  4. Apparently Steven Gee is coming on to Gangnam Style later. Hope he does the dance.
  5. Sadly I don't have access to this channel. I'll go rooting around the various stream sites to see if I can find it.
  6. Any live streams around? This is the official one : http://www.wsop.com/...CookieSupport=1 Not sure if it will work over here or what hours its supposed to start.
  7. Got it. I'll take Ausmus if noone else does by 1 hour 40 minutes from this post.
  8. If you need to ask then you aren't ready. Online, netting $2k a month off $2500 is possible but I wouldn't recommend it with no real prior experience. You may be profitable on an individual table but that's just one of many skills you need to master. You need to be able to multitable, game select, control tilt, put in a lot of hours whilst maintaining a high standard of play and much more. These things can take months or years to master. You can't just jump into doing a thing like this. Number of hands wise..100k gives a decent idea but in reality you need 500k+ to really know what yo
  9. I'll close this at 11:30pm GMT which I believe is 17 minutes before start time. I'll act as the field if noone else wants to buy a player.
  10. Could struggle to fill this. I'll open it up to 2 players per person and buy Koroknai. Received Rose and Bobs payment.
  11. This kinda crept up out of nowhere. Starts Monday 29th at 4:47pm Vegas time. Ends sometime on Tuesday. http://www.wsop.com/...CTOBER-NINE.pdf I'll run a buy a player with the same method as the Big One FT from earlier this year : http://www.fullconta...1 You get to buy a player for a shot at $100. The more likely the player is to win (according to betfair at 10am GMT on Sat 27th Oct), the more you have to pay to have a shot. It will be winner take all for whoever has the player that wins the event. Post in this thread to claim a player and ship the relevant amount to Blue Baboon
  12. Doing some more work out of boredom. If you say CO raise/calls and jams what I said above (which is what I think is close to optimal jam range with his stack)...then you are 30.6% against the calling range. ...pen and paper maths....leads to he needs to fold more than 59.88%! Exactly what you said...heh So to shove ATo, his total CO steal needs to be greater than 6.8% (raise/call) + 8.1% (shove) + 10.2% (raise/fold) = 25.1% According to Pokerstove the 25.2% percentile hand ~A7o/J9s/T8s so if he's raising more than that ATo should be good to shove....pretty near to what I ha
  13. You see him raise fold a 12 bb stack a lot but don't think he'll raise fold an 18bb stack when opening from the CO? I think I know the kind of player you're talking about and I'd be really surprised to find ATo isn't profitable shove there. Do you see him jamming 18bb here very often? (edit - nm see you're talking about a different player and also answers the jamming thing) When you're talking about 3 betting do you mean shove or making it 6x here? I think abig factor in working out the CO's range here is the BB. The BB is sitting there with 13bb and should be shoving fairly
  14. If there is an actual answer to this then its probably the opposite of what you say. Your variance is a function of you and your opponents playing styles and your winrate. The more loose aggressive you and the other players are, the more variance there will be. The lower your winrate, the higher variance you will experience. In general, you're more likely to have a lower winrate and run into more loose aggressive players at higher limits so variance increases with stakes. Play at low limits, whilst unpredictable, is far more likely to be a version of a loose passive style than anythi
  15. Agree Playing both today but prob not any others til Friday.
  16. Yeah if a decent tight player (really need a fair few hands with someone to be sure of this) on a 11-14 BB stack opens instead of shoving in EP their range is v strong. Easy fold in MP and really close from button/blinds. It's really not close vs some, their ranges can be QQ+.I wouldn't get into a habit of folding it in this spot though, only vs specific players.Also there are a ton of spots on bubbles of SnGs where it's correct to fold it to raise or even just open fold it.
  17. <---folds AQ to single opens regularly.
  18. With the stack to pot ratio left on the turn there is no need to do anything but shove. He has 2300 left with 4400 in the pot. No need to worry about any more of his actions.If you do bet and get shoved on you're going to be getting about 8 million : 1 to call so it would be absurd not to.If you were somewhat deeper this would be an interesting turn spot. If he had 5000+ behind you could consider all options on the turn.
  19. Yep c/f is close to optimal when the opponents range is so well defined. Good analysis Merby.
  20. Grinding tons and tons of hyper turbo sngs with MTTs on the side. Love me some variance and rakeback.
  21. Why? You can fairly easily "solve" an awful lot of tournament hands (mostly preflop spots, all in calls and river calls) mathematically and conclusively work out which play is best. In this exact hand it would be very time-consuming..For situations like this, you can break down your opponents ranges, apply good tournament fundamentals and use past experience to come up with a damned good answer most of the time. Whilst it may not be the best play vs everyone, it is the best you can make with the information you have available (in this case, not very much). There are some spots which are reall
