New Challenge (old Challenge)


Recommended Posts

This trip just reminded me how much I need a new laptop. If anyone finds any good deals on laptops in Black Friday ads or just knows of any in general please let me know. I don't use it a ton but I just want something that is faster. Thanks.

I think that for the players that game select like myself and cwik and Naismith, that 80 to 85% is pretty standard actually. Most of our opponents are playing fit or fold or are just bluffy maniacs. There aren't many competent people that we need to balance ranges against. If my cbet is a little higher than Zach or Jay, it's because I actually have a lower VPIP than those guys. Mine is usually around 45 or something and I know that Jay routinely has a VPIP of over 50.
Over my last 76k hands my stats are 56/50/3.2 for 200 and 400nl HU and my cbet% is 68. If you check my last 30k hands since I've made a little bit of an adjustment, I'm up to 58/53/3.77 and cbet 72%.

anyone going to be heading out there tonightI am thinking of going later on this evening
My friend and I played the last 2 nights since I am in Chi. to play the H.P.T Tourney at Majestic. I made Day 2 with 35,300 chips with the ave. at arround 36,000. I played the $25/$50 1/2 nlhe 1/2 plo game in the private high stakes room and the action was really good. I played 3 hu nlhe freezeout matches over the 2 days and I won 2/3. My friend, OMGJustinFiltz here on fcp, played the $2/$5 nl game and he said the action was great both days. :5c:D:D:D:club:I showed up a few mins late to Day 2 and missed 3 hands including my bb so I had 33k. On the 4th hand I raised and stole the blinds. On the 5th hand I raise to 4100 at 700/1400/ante 10 handed from 3 off the bttn with AdKd and the bttn rres me to 15k. I decide to flat and stop and go to increase my chance of winning the hand vs. his strong range that he's never folding pf. The flop comes Kx Qd Td. I ck since I smashed the flop hard and obv. don't mind giving a free card since there are few cards he could hit unless he's already ahead and I think he's shoving here most of the time. He cks and the turn is the Qx I move in for 21k and he tanks for about 1-1.5 mins and then calls and shows AQos. lol! The river bricks a 9s and I say nice slowroll sir and leave right away. The pot was a 76k pot with the average at 40k with 88 ppl left with 30 cashing and I think I was at an easy table where ppl had a lot of chips. Good to see you at Hammond MJINK3. :ts:3h:4h:D

I play it the same most likely against most players, but then again most of my play is at full ring.
