  1. Dont take this the wrong way. Just wondering if you have really thought about this.Have you considered how much it is going to suck multitabling 35 hours a week? I think that you will have a big problem with keeping focus for those long hours. You are going to be distracted by the fridge, roommates, girlfriend, life, whatever. Also, there is a strong possibility that a job will pay off much better than 35 hours of online poker. I for one, get bored after three hours of 1-2 tabling. I can't imagine doing it for 35 hours a week. Anyway, not trying to flame you, but this is my first thought
  2. thanks for that info.Brag seems like a lucky gambling kind of game. No wonder they were sweating so much in the movie. Maybe they should offer it online? I dont hink I would be playing though.
  3. What...Do...You...Do?This epitomizes Keanu's acting ability. I think it was Point Break.
  4. I can levitate like David Blaine does in his street magic. I can get up about 3-4 inches if I concentrate really hard. Seriously. Maybe I should record it.
  5. Drinking at the poker table is a bad idea. But thats not the answer you are looking for, so Newcastle would be mine.
  6. I am very similar in my online play. I am having trouble getting over $150. I started at $30 in Dec and play about 10 hours a week. These are the differences I see in online vs. live:1. Online has the same kinds of games, just different stakes. These are rough approximations of skill levels.Online .25/.50 = Live 2/4 to 3/6Online .50/1.00 = Live 4/8 to 5/10So, if you play 3/6 online, expect to get outplayed. Just take a look at the flop percentages on the tables online. At .25/.50, people seeing the flop is usually in the %60-%75 range. Beyond .50/1.00, the numbers go down to around 25%
  7. Kilgore, you should keep your writings to bizarre sci-fi stories in crappy softcore porn pulp where it belongs. Clearly you are out of your element. I am a big Vonnegut fan, great screen name.
  8. So it looks like striking out some of the "C"s on my chart and putting in a R is a good idea. Maybe I will do some work on it and post it up here.
  9. So, if early is eliminated, you can play many more hands. I have been doing this, but probably too much. Does it also mean that you should play marginal hands at a full table a little stronger with 6? What do you do with: K10, AJ, QJ, suited connectors? I have a chart of Slansky's SSHE and I guess I should use that as a guide, just eliminate the Early position. Again, thanks for your help.
  10. I play mostly 10 handed .25/.50 limit tables. I have tried the shorthanded 6 handed games and I will usually do well, but sometimes I end up losing chasing things I thought were good, or trying things I don't do in 10 handed much. Anyone have constructive advice about starting hand requirements, deception, etc. for 6 handed low Limit Hold'em? Akishore, if you are out there, your type of advice is greatly appreciated (or anyone else with a good solid response). Do you loosen or tighten your starting hand requirements?One thing I have trouble with is that it seems that deception is easier wi
  11. So, Kurt, were you sweating bullets on this hand? I probably would have made the same move on a hand like this. From all the arguments here, I believe that it was the wrong move, but I applaud you nonetheless. I'd probably have a heart attack just trying to figure it out. Thanks for representing humble small timers like myself and others here at FCP.
  12. Huh?OK, not 100% true. I am talking low limit here, but you probably knew that.Slowplay:Maybe its just Pokerroom, but my tables are almost always passive. Aggression has been serving me well. The way I play, I don't slowplay anything unless its just about the stone cold nuts. You will get callers on nearly any bet. If you dont bet, its almost always checked around. Sometimes you can check raise an aggressor pre flop. Bluffing:I never bluff anymore, been beat too many times by some clown slowplaying AK. Semi-bluffs are good in a situation like this:You have a decent hand preflop, say 10
  13. I think I might be wrong and prankstr is right... Google is your friend on this stuff.http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=%...t%22+definition
  14. I dont really know what a value call is, sounds like an oxymoron. I am no expert here so hopefully someone can back me up.A value bet happens when you have a decent hand preflop, say 10 10, and you raised it. The flop is Q 5 8. You may not have the best hand anymore, but you don't want your opponents to know this, so you have to follow up your preflop raise with a "value bet"
  15. I have been playing limit only for about 3 months or so and have never gone broke. I am not exactly raking in the money either, but I have fun. Still playing on that $30 I put in in December. So, just sitting down and playing has worked fine for me. I played the play money tables for a few weeks just to learn the very basics. I have never played NL, except in a tournament setting. I think the crucial thing is to have proper starting hand requirements. Dont play QJ just cause it looks pretty.I am starting to win more now that I play with unchecked agression. Don't be afraid to bet if y
