  1. I've played ~2700 matches at limits ranging from $20 to $500, with most at the $100 level (all on pstars) and have an overall winning percentage of 66.99%. Oddly enough, my winning percentage increases as the buy-in does, but my guess is that this is a factor of my gaining experience as I moved up the ladder, coupled with more randomness at the lower limits with looser players.
  2. http://www.fullcontactpoker.com/poker-foru...pic.php?t=28122 Yeah I did spend at least 10 minutes on that, way too much time.Then again...Spademan - 1016 posts....
  3. Either my post isn't written in simple enough terms or you're not very bright.
  4. Nope, nope and nope.Also I bet you're no prize yourself either big guy. If you think someone is annoying that's fine but you're a complete slag for writing this post. In fact your namesake is probably the least attractive person in poker, man or woman.Ti54 must have aspergers syndrome b/c he can't see your point.I can see his point and in fact somewhat agree with it, but in the first place it is frivolous and not worth the time it takes to type it out, and also he puts in the dig against her physical attractiveness while praising others who are very mediocre. Its just nonsense all around.
  5. I don't think he is pretending to be hellmuth lol, just chose that name.Hellmuth would never praise anyone (Giang) even while insulting someone else.

  7. sarcasm? not quite sure. But if I were with you in person I would be able to tell but these people couldn't. That's the point. How could they be good at live poker?No one else except for top poker players are ever able to detect sarcasm. Common known fact! Surprised you didn't know that. (Were you able to detect it there?)You are an idiot. My point is not that I am so special in being able to detect sarcasm, but that if I couldn't then I probably couldn't be good at poker.
  8. This is where I stopped reading, I couldn't sit at the dogs playing poker game (the painting), and have a 90% win rate.You could at this game. Unless you suck at poker, which you might.Actually I just checked my records, from November '04 to August '05 I played 73 freezeouts against them and won 61 so 83.5%.
  9. That picture is not a fake its all over the internet.

  11. I made a spreadsheet to keep track of all different types of games, limits, etc. and all kinds of different ways of calculating profits. Took me about 10 hours. It involves 9 different sheets. Some of the formulas are five full lines of text. But I never use it now.
  12. Hi, I'm new to poker but I was wondering how this guy's A2 against my KQ won on high cards when neither of us hit any pairs? I have two high cards.
  13. You are the subject of the post, thank you. A weak attempt at a joke such as this is a hallmark of these people.I suspected there would be many of you on this forum, as there would be on any internet forum, but you wouldn't and didn't realize I was talking about you.Incidentally, it is no secret that the internet is a haven for nerds. My theory is that this is because it levels the playing field. Nobodoy knows anything about you and you can become anything you want. The best part is that the need for social skills is cut down to a minimum, and many become flamers or "e-thugs."
  14. This started out as a random thought and turned into a friggin' thesis. Read it if you wish.______________I occasionally play $10 and $20 freezeouts with my youger brother and his friends for fun. They are 16 and 17 and very fishy of course, and I probably have a 90% win rate in these things. Anyway, the other night after I called out exactly what two players' cards were before they flipped them over, one of them said to me "Jesus, you should work for the FBI and be like a human lie detector or something." And that got me to thinking, do these skills translate to other parts of my life?I d
  15. No its not even tilt. Well in a way it is, but tilt by my definition is when you know you're playing badly but just don't care. I "know" I'm playing badly in these situations but it is only really in the subconscious and I don't realize it until aftrer its too late. Its like when you are drunk, you know you're drunk, but sometimes when you wake up the morning and think "holy shit I can't believe how drunk I was last night."
  16. Also the Caro one is mostly obvious stuff but there was one thing that I learned from it which I will tell you here so you don't have to waste your money.He says that one of the best and most important times to watch for tells in your opponents are when they AREN'T currently playing a hand. This is because they will think that no one is watching them and will act natural, and the information you can gain will tell you how they are likely to play when the finally do (i.e. lose, aggressive, on tilt, etc.).
  17. Hold 'Em for Advanced Players by Sklanksy/Malmuth (which I asssume is what you mean) is very, very dry and difficult to get through but if you can do it it will patch a lot of leaks in your game.Basically, it won't teach you how to read people better but you can save youself a lot of money by cutting down on a few stupid calls here and there. I didn't even realize that some of the mistakes I was making were mistakes, let alone how to correct them.
  18. A woman who names herself "Rowdy." I'm in.
  19. Yeah I knew it was something like that, but it doesn't even matter. Just a terrible.
  20. a little touchy on this subject are we?You're right, he could end my life when I have a heart attack after he calls my all-in with T9 vs. KK and he flops four 9's. GG D'agostino meltdown.
  21. The way I do it is to set goals. Once you have a bankroll for the limit you are going to play consistently at, you can withdraw your profit each week. Once I started playing big and winning significant amounts of money, I set a list of priorites. First I wanted to put at least 20k away in an account in case of a rainy day, plus when I first started out with serious poker I lost 20k so I wanted to 'get it back' so to speak. Then I wanted to make enough to pay my tuition through the rest of school. Then I wanted to make enough to get a nice double-monitor set up to play online in style (www
