  1. Looked at your hands more closely. Hand 2, wtf is up with your huge reraise pf?
  2. I quickly glanced the hands. I dont like either. To me there are two spots to fire multiple barrels and it applies to all limits whether is 100NL or 40000NL. The first is what you said. When the turn card comes and changes the relative strength of the board. You should always fire a second barrel and make it a 75% pot bet. The second situation only applies to regs; you had the right idea in hand two, but you didnt think it through. Your stack sizes and bet sizing was horrible. YOU NEED TO LEAVE YOURSELF A POT SIZED BET ON THE RIVER or your getting called all day with the price you gave. You ar
  3. Just saw the results and this is why I gave the advice I gave. (1) you let villan set his price for his draw(2) if turn blanks, villan will probably be done with the hand. He might get it in on the flop; he has enough equity vs your range.(3) if villan had a set of threes or some other made hand, the turn would have killed your action.
  4. Get it in and its not even close. Your not deep, no need to fear monsters under the closet with just one buyin. I would consider losing to flopped flush a cooler.
  5. The form of table selection is obsolete. Just google SpadeEye. It's a table selection tool and datamining tool and its really cheap. It scans all the tables for any limits you choose and gives you stats on all the players that you have hands on.
  6. I would actually either fold or reraise pf, but w/e. Why are u playing on Stars? At 50NL, you NEED the rakeback.
  7. There is no hate in this statement since I know both IRL: for all the money they have, they still can't buy taste. Dual big screens??? That is gross. All their furniture is gross as well. They have decent cars, but with the money they have, they are pretty disgusting as well. It's not even about saving money bc these guys burn cash.
  8. I was at the Bellagio last week and a very interesting ruling came down at the table next to me. The play got to the river and one of the players went all in. All he had left was a wad of $100. The player asked him two or three times how much he had in the roll and each time he responded 5k. The player called. When the money was counted he had 9k. Obviously the player who called only wanted to put in 5k. The floor came over and said he had to pay the full 9k. I find this ridiculous that a person could lie about their stack and still get paid for the real amount. A buddy of mine witnessed somet
  9. It would be very easy to make 1k/month playing 100NL. You are probably going to make 1.5-2k/month in rakeback alone if your playing full time. If you 6 table for 5 hours a day (2 two and half hour sessions), even as a marginal winner, you should pull 4k/month including rakeback.
  10. I hope I'm not getting leveled here. 200NL is about the same as 1000NL was a year ago. High SSNL, MSNL are basically unbearable. HSNL actually has the best game selection since alot of wealty people will jump into a 10k game on Full Tilt just to play; the problem is that the regulars are tough as hell. I think you can blame BLdSWtTRs for the majority of regulars getting ALOT better. He was the first that I know of to 3 bet light on a consistent basis. People caught on and it's an aggro fest now, even at 200NL. A tough 200NL player today, could hold his own vs the top 1kNL players on Party a y
  11. The first thing you should do is sign up for Cardrunners. If you can't afford it, go to pokerbay.org. They have a few espisodes you can download.
  12. I just figured out that there is no reason to play online. So much more money in live play that I'm actually considering moving back to So. Cal to play in the bigger NL games. The best part is, it's all straight cash so the tax man don't gots to know Honestly, even the better regulars are pretty bad.My solution to the boredom of live play is to pretend that I'm in every single hand and try to predict the players cards... it keeps me from falling asleep. That and the $57,000 I'm up this month
  13. The best bet is taking the annuity and selling it.
  14. Spent 100 bucks on tickets. If I win, I will sleep more
  15. Go to 2+2 and PM Stoxtrader. He will trade you Paypal money for Full Tilt money. Just load your Paypal account through your bank.
  16. I guess you could do that. If you buyin for the min of 2k, but you still need the right table. The problem is that most of the players in this game are nits; I'm honestly the only LAG that plays in the game. I think playing against a player like me, that would be the best strategy because of my style. I could honestly care less if a short stack does that. My style is geared more towards the big stack. I raise and call with such a wide range that they honestly can't put me on a hand.
  17. It wasn't really a GREAT session. Depending on the players in the table, you have an option of an uncapped buyin (if everyone agrees). I bought in originally for 15k. The average was 10k - 15k, some 70 year old guy bought in for 40k (a little bit of overkill). The game plays ALOT bigger than a normal 10-20 NL game. First, the required bring in is 40 dollars (there is no limping) and the standard opening raise was between $240-$350. I stacked one guy who had a full stack and once vs. a short buy. I'm ok with the hand now. Live and learn. Here is how the hand went (I remember every detail). The
  18. It wasn't a bad hand at all. It was an easy spot that I played like a complete donk. If I was only 2 hours into the session, I would play pot control after I get 3 bet on the turn. Maybe even after she called my raise on the flop. It was def a cooler hand, but I componded my problems by not reconizing the fact that she wanted to play a huge pot when we were uber deep. At least I learned something.
  19. This is not meant to berate, but rather to motivate. A monkey could make 6k a month playing 6max 200NL. Playing 6 tables at a very modest winrate = good money. There will always be soft lineups at 200NL. Someone with an average winrate of 5 ptBB/100 should be making close to 10k a month playing for 3-4 hours a days while 6 tabling. This is before rakeback and bonuses. Go to 3bet.net, get a coach, and make some money. If money is your bottom line, then SSNL is a good avenue. Comprable jobs in the real world with similar pay require working over 12 hours a day. Good luck.
  20. I agree 100%. That turn push is probably the worst play I have made in my entire life. What can she call with? She is not felting with A-K there. She is calling with 5-5 and she is calling with A-A; no other hand is calling. I had a brain fart after 8 hours of playing and it cost me. I have never really allowed a loss to affect me, but this one has bc of my own idiocy. I got caught up in the moment with all the money involved and didn't think the hand through. She actually said that she thought I had 5-5 after I put in the 4th raise on the turn all in so quickly. DOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
  21. Congrats Iggy:Sucks I lost the biggest pot of my life yesterday at Artichoke Joes. Playing 10-10-20 NL. After about 8 hours, I built my stack to 48k and villan covers. Have K-K flop 2nd set. Board pairs on the bottom card on the turn. We get it all in. Of course she has A-A for top boat. I played the hand like an idiot and should have practiced pot control on the turn vs this villan. Instead I push. The moment she insta called, I knew I had just lost the biggest pot of my life. I honestly can't even describe how it felt. Sitting there shipping 48k+ in chips across the table. The floorman asks
  22. This seems pretty complicated. I just want to be busto or robusto on Mansion.
  23. Do I have sign up again under sports exchange? So it looks like 5k on Pats and 5k on the under.
  24. Really? The Pats? Hmmmm.... that was a game I was gong to stay away from. How do I actually make a bet?
