Yeha - I used to be ranked ~30 for MTT, however I took a long break, so I am around 700 atm. Thing is, due to timezone issues, I can't really play the MTT leaderboard game anyway, so doesn't matter much for me.. At the moment there's a $50K freeroll for top-ranked players, but at a time that is impossible for me to play due to work Sad

Thanks for the HEM tip.
Got that a while back but never really got down to using it.
Set it up last week, but since my PC crashed in may, I have almost no stats from my game from before, only the last month as I spent a lot of time in Brussels.

Slowly learning to use it now...very slowly as in.. a day or 2. Smile
I´ll wait for a demo of Leak Buster until I have a decent number of hands for my game.
Won´t have too much time to play in the coming month, but when I do, I´ll use it. Blink

Keep up the great run! Thumbs Up

Great job Jess! I haven't tried MTT at PKR but most players were very fishy in the 2 10$ SnGs I've won. And it's true that Heads up is a very important piece of the puzzle for MTT success. You have to isolate a player to have more chances to win the hand, even if you don't hit... Smile

What would you say is the hand that makes you win the most chips in MTT? I mean up and down, cause then if you lose as much with it there's no point Blink And what kind of player are you? What kind of image do you like to have at the table?

Sorry If I ask too many questions, It's because I've stopped playing MTT for a while and I'm thinking of getting back to it!

Keep up the good playing, and of course, keep running good Big Smile

W00t !

Just done another marathon session, started 4am currently ~10.30am, still in one last game, just a $12 game, going pretty average, results from finished games:

09 August, 2011 Primetime Jackpot (Twin A) Hold'em NL $ 30 3 of 98 $ 318
09 August, 2011 Turbo (7 seater) Hold'em NL $ 10 1 of 34 $ 136
09 August, 2011 (R) Monte Carlo (8 seater) Hold'em NL $ 70 1 of 93 $ 1786

total cashes = $2240 (+ if i get anything in game that is still going).

Total Buyins ~$300 (entered 10 games, spent roughly $300).

Also IslandJack

If you are interested, I may have a staking offer for you on Party Poker, say around $100 - I was thinking you could choose 4-5 MTTs or something (I'm not fussed) and 50/50 split on anything you make.

Reason I am offering, other than run-god on P.K.R, is because I got my $90 on Party from BRM and i was a bit drunk and I spun it up to around $250 playing roulette like a donk lol.

So post here if you're interested, no pressure at all to make any $$ or anything, my roll on P.K.R is fkn healthy. It's more since you're running bad I thought I'd give you a break, if your run-bad continues and no cashes, I really don't care.

Hmmm, I realise this is probably overstepping my boundries, but any possibility you might be interested in taking some of that roll and staking me at $4NL. Trying to rebuild a new roll on there due to the whole Full Tilt shutting down issue. Already doubled the initial $25 starting roll i got from here. Can post graphs to prove I'm a solid/winning player if it helps any Smile

PS, Gratz on another monster session. Seems like you're running like god right now Smile

You should rename this thread "Jess's MTT Success Blog", well done. Worship

It's always inspirational to hear of someones successes and that's a very kind offer you have made IslandJack - I salute you.

Sorry; the thing is I think Party have a minimum p2p transfer of $50.00, I am not even sure I'll be able to transfer to IslandJack, really depends on their security, as I have never deposited or withdrawn from Party, so they might not even let me. Also, I donked off some of the money on roulette, The offer still stands for Jack, but I really don't have much else. If Jack doesn't want to take me up on the offer, if he feels uncomfortable or something with that, I shall have a think about it.

Or otherwise if Jack does want to take me up and has a nice bink and I get some $ back, then sure I'll spot you $50. But just see how it pans out for now.

Wow you won the Monte carlo, thats1 of PKR finest, best structure there is imo. Very very nice thats a perfect 1 on someones bink list. I allways wanted to win PKR $5 rebuy, think my speciality, only won it once though.

Anyway keep going and maybe this isnt a heater, this is just how TheJess runs Worship

Yeah, binking Monte was pretty nice.. Funny actually, I didn't intend on playing it, the Open starts at 4am aussie time and the Monte Carlo is 3.30am, i actually woke up at about 4.05, went made coffee etc and then late-regged into the open. The Monte had nearly finished late-reg period and just sort of spur of the moment I decided to take a shot, partly cause my mate/rival (RooSay) was playing and thought would be fun to have a crack as well..

"Anyway keep going and maybe this isnt a heater, this is just how TheJess runs" Well, whilst I do think I can definitely play MTTs profitably, there is NO way I am not on a heater.. if I look at my sharkscope graph, it's pretty obvious I'm on a massive heater right now, but is nice still lol. And heaters feed your confidence which then makes you play better (like how negative variance makes you doubt yourself/tilt/play worse) - so it's a good kind of momentum for sure.

edit: Are you referring to the $5 "lunchtime rebuy" ? I always go terrible in that, I always build a monster stack in the first hour and then just crash hard for some reason, could be variance because I swear I've gone card-dead every time, or maybe I just suck at that one, I dunno - but I generally avoid it like the plague lol - it just seems massively ev- for me.. Haha, I think I spent $50 in rebuys on that one once and didn't cash lol.

Hey, no problem.

I know i'll get my roll there, it's only a matter of time. I feel silly for even asking, figured it was worth asking since it'd help expedite the roll building and make you a few maniez, but no worries Smile

Islandjack you forgot the luck and the timing factor also Big Smile

We can say anything we want about strategy, but in the end, if you can't win a race or dodge suckouts when you have to, you're never gonna get to the final table... Tilting won't help you unless you get lucky also, so just keep playing your game! (hitting a pillow might help tough Big Smile )

I have to agree with you about the aggro factor tough, it is very important because you have to steal pots sometimes to win Smile But picking the right spots is the hard part that's for sure.

Oh and Jess, why don't you answer any of my questions Confused

Sorry - I will do so now, most likely if I read your post along with other posts I may have missed something I was going to respond to.

Posted by TheMachineQC:

What would you say is the hand that makes you win the most chips in MTT?

Well, if you're talking about specific hands; obviously KK/AA - particularly in MTT sometimes people will call off their stacks with AJ/Q/K when they still have 100bb sitting in front of them, running AA or KK into AQ/AK is often going to net you a pretty good starting stack.

Obviously getting AA/KK in the end-game is a god send, since at this point a lot of people are down around ~10-20bb and shoving very wide so you can pick up chips easy enough.

Earlier stages against better players and with deep stacks set-mining is probably the best way to chip up, since it's easy to disguise. Suited-connector type hands are better against weaker players, as good players can generally spot the flush/straight and get away from the hand.

But look, that's all fairly generic anyway - I haven't used HEM to look over my HH in a long time and I would really need to do that to give you a proper honest answer, although as with most people AA/KK would definitely factor in very high.

And what kind of player are you? What kind of image do you like to have at the table?

This is a little bit tricky, because I quite often play very drunk and I am sure my game differs somewhat depending how many drinks I've had. Early stages I play very tight from EP, when I am UTG & UTG+1 (in a 10seater) I'll only get involved with JJ+, AQs+, AKo. From MP I'll be quite happy to set-mine pretty much any pp, I'll also open with a few more hands if no one from EP has made a move yet. From LP I'll call very wide if I suspect weaker players are involved in that hand, I'll even call junk like Q8s, K10 etc if I think my opponent is no good.

If I'm OOP I'll only continue with strong hands, IP however I'm happy to float flops, steal turns, etc.

Generally I think my table image is probably fairly loose, during mid-late stages I get involved in a lot of hands. I'll also 3bet and 3bet-shove fairly wide, which I think is good for my image because I've noticed some people will try and steal my blinds once or twice but after a while if they're paying attention they give up. Aggression is important because it works in two ways:

A) It gives you two ways to win a pot 1. They fold 2. You have best hand at show-down. If you're passive and mostly just calling you only have one way to win a pot; best hand.

B) People are far less likely to steal blinds/pots from you if they perceive you as a maniac. Just have to be careful as people are more likely to try and trap you if raising a lot. Look out for people you usually open with a raise suddenly limping, or somebody who c-bets every flop suddenly checking it back.

Thanks man - I've actually cut back quite a bit on the booze. And I self-excluded myself from P.K.R casino + side games a long time ago. My main problem now is not tiling and opening up 4 tables of nl400/600 etc.. ooh... that hurts lol. So need to build that discipline.. I am currently reading "Professional no Limit hold'em" which is meant to be a good read and I'm liking it so far, really need to build up my ring game..

How you running these days?
