I have two questions Micro

How many left in the tourney at this point, I'm guessing not many as the blinds are quite high?

Are you mad blind stealing with 32o? Worship

Yeah, don had pulled the same move on me a few hands earlier and i swore id find the time and place. I cant speak to the amount of players left but yes it was almost closing time. This is actually the game where a few hands later i had QQ and ran into he-man and his 88. If you read my rant then i wont need to tell you what happened.

cliff notes: allin on flop 8 on turn for 70-80k pot............ i was in top ten when it happened too......................................................... Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

Im not sure what would have happened there not been a 1 card str8 on the board. I was repping the ten there hard. I also knew because there was a player allin, albeit it for antes, he could fold knowing he would get to see me have the ten.... at least thats what i would have thought.

Haven't senen you while playing at Carbon lately! Have you been playing the higher stakes games? Just curious! Usually read your blog, but generally see you in one of the $300 Guarantees for $1.10.
I've been meaning to ask about ROI and waht does it actually represent. I know I should do some reading on poker in general. I do fare for only playing electronic poker for a little over a year, but really don't know anything about the game from a statistical standpoint.
Good Luck to you and all! Maybe check back next time I see you've been on!

I actually just went busto from that very game. Im still in the 350$ dazzler along with the 125k freeroll currently.

Do they have "add" friends on Carbon? i tried adding you ages ago but you enver accepted so i was of the mind they dont or if they do you never check.

break just ended so ill answer the roi question in depth after im done playing.

Gl as always GM

Played the dazzler couple of times myself at Merge, great tourney, also i liked many tourneys over there, very good network with many nice rebuys, but only played to clear a 1st dep bonus so went after that.

what are you doing, Micro ? busy ? I saw your play this morning ( your time Smile ) when yourJc5c hit 3rd button on flop, go all in and won with fullhouse. What did you think at the moment ? Really good talent Smile Smile

not busy no. [email protected] good talent. im battoning down the hatches in about 10 mins for the fast fifty. The games are all pushed back an hour bc of Daylight savings time. You thinking of playing in it or is it really late for you?

I late for fast fifty, but I played at quarte quicky $ 25 cent, a lot crap card, lost in best hand and finally bust with AJ vs Q10 s, he hit !0. Sad , I just got prize 2 MTT, 3rd place at Micro $30 and 6th place at fast fifty from 8 MTT I played, s n g almost same percentage. Not good improvment yet, my bankroll just $12.78 now.

up up and away buddy Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

At the very least im sure ur improving in co0nfidence.

Personally ive never played worse or ran colder. I am slowly coming to the realization im playing on tilt and need to curb my poor play soon. I really dont even want to look at my goals for the month and thats just being in denial.

I just received a NDB from celeb poker and ill be making a Video Review in a short while. I dont know what it is but i find playing cash on platforms like Celeb because of the software layout. Merge can be a bit cartoonish i find. Even without the emotes.

------------
o boy. so i had a real live one on my table. he pushes me allin on an AK7 flop and i have AK. he has j10 and hits the Q on river. Next hand i have KK and he dives allin and i call him and he shows q10 and i take the pot so we are back to og stacks. four hands later he dives from utg and two people call QQ and AA and he has q10 again. flops oesd and turns it for a 40k pot. he then dives the next 4 hands allin. Im sitting to his left and licking my chops. he min raises every hand after he realizes no one is calling him. I play some small pots and he shoves on everyflop. I tell him, listen chump keep it up and ull be drawnig to 3 cards against me. Sure enough i get A10 in sb and hes still raising every hand but since im calling his min raises on my blinds he pops it to 4k pre. I reraise him with A10 and he flats me. flop is all low and he dives. Im like u wish id let you off and i call. He has A7 and the flop was 653. turn 4 river 8.

This is a pretty common occurence lately. I appreciate bad things happen and given how i played the above hand i was always gambling and i could have easily waited for a better spot. Still the guys that are killing me have been incredibly lucky. Statistically losing even one of the hands at 7% on river is rare. Stringing 5-6-7 of said hands together is simply outrageous. How do they get it in there? how do they win the hand and then continue to play very very bad poker. The stuff i see is akin to someone winning the lotto for 5 milly and then thinking they should bet all 5 milly on the next lotto because to them it makes sense.

I will be making adjustments but considering i was once again cooled off with final table chips by an extremely unlikely card its hard to find a place to improve short of not playing right now. Which since its a beautiful day ive decided to paint some stuff around the yard.

oh you busy at Celeb now, Smile Smile Smile That's why I didn't find you at hero.

Sorry for your bad beat, mate. That's problem I try to find out solution, too. That's not math, I am sure ! I remind you, You ever said you play most with instinct / intuition.I absolutely agree, and good instinct show when we cool, calm and confidence. You had been on the right way when I saw your play at $5 s n g 45 player, remember ? then I ask you full video, cos I want to learn how you handle situation.

My analysis we have to give up when face against player who exploit his lucky moment, and his luck more than us. Give us for a moment, wait till our chance come then break him. Many time I lost patient and tilt, that's my big problem so I lost control.
Try to see my video : in lucky moment. At that time I fully aware I play just BASE ON LUCK and I deliberate did it to test how is dangerous if we against people in lucky moment.
And I have my video how against aggressive player like your experience above.
Hope you help me analysis and give your comment. I will put the video today.

Good Luck, mate


P.S : my bankroll $ 18.18 now, yeah, slow cos I got it from s n g, no success yet on MTT

I really was hoping to find a nice score yesterday before posting my monthly's. I ran deep into a couple games but was defeated by more shenanigans. I will just say there is nothing wrong with trying to steal a blind with QJos but if someone defends with an allin and you are risking over 60% of your stack why call? You could fold and be much better off. These are the type of players i encounter. Quoting pot odds and priced in when they arent even close.

One thing i hate about poker is despite all my best efforts and plans, despite promising myself i wont give them out easy or be outplayed. Luck makes a loser a winner. Playing Sports competitively all my life its hard to accept this. Regardless of that i cannot remain provincial in my appraoch or ignorant in my understanding. I just need to refocus on what works and move outwardly from there.

Ie back to basics. When in doubt grind it out.

Thanks for the comment Serpang and ive read it a couple times but havent a clue what to say back. Ill revisit it again later today.

Well after yesterday my hopes are high for today. Reasonably high anyways. Since tomorrow is Valentines day (Be nice to your Woman remember Blink Ive decided to post my monthly update a day early.

The 2nd month went as follows.


This is going to be painful....

So ill nail my goals down once again for the next 30 days.

Lower my MTT Avg Finish Early to <10% (11%)
Improve my OPR Merge Ranking (90.54%)

Decrease Loses in SNG's. (-121) - holy crap how did i let it get this bad....
Decrease Loses in Cash games NL (-10/4953 hands)






------------
So here are my results. I failed all my goals except somehow i improved my rank on merge. Odd. Ill be back to basics this month with no expectations, survival is the new goal. ill post a .gif later today of my monthly games as well

Not too bad for me, Mate. Cos poker is very unpredictable so many variation. I suggest don't think you had bad result , why ? Cos, in fact your rank increase. no one can stable for a long time, should be up and down ( down little and up higher Big Smile Big Smile ). Your result in s n g & cash decrease but your rank increase, that's indicate other player ( generally ) up and down, too. So that's normal Smile

Do you play satellite $1 for $11 ticket ? seems good program for us, can use to many MTT freezout.
I try 3 times and got once but fail at main event maximus $ 10.000. How do you think ?
I never saw you play that satellite Smile

You are correct and i appreciate your perspective once again Serpang. Correct about poker variance. BeMyAtm (where that nucka at?) told me this was gonna happen and i just brushed it off. The perfect storm was created by ignoring this advice. Ive been a pretty whiny bitch on the tables lately and am ashamed about some of the ways ive reacted to plays by some players. Which is yet another indicator of my poor approach. Winners dont let it bother them. onto the next one so to speak. Losers are forced to dwell on it because they always think of what could have been because they dont have a next one to go onto. Those terms are pretty absolute and i use them only as examples to illustrate how it can be perceived. Worse thing one can do is to take with them the negative attitude from a loss into a new game. In essence bringing a losing mentality.

Reading on variance explains just how this is supposed to happen. Its supposed to be a part of the game and even winning 95% of the time means u still lose 5% of the time. Retributions post about "tilt" is something ive been just now at he nailed it.

Kind of been drinking so i apologize if my post is all over.

a girl i dated took sociology and as she wasnt so bright i had to write a couple essays for her. One time i even wrote a book report for her and had to read "water for elephants" cover to cover in 3 days and write about the effects of ageism amongst other things i cant recall right now. After i was done and she her grade they made the bloody book into a movie. One time im gonna watch it cause the book was actually really good.

ne ways.....

Point is i learned in her class that 54% of all text messages are misinterpreted. This shocked me. More messages are wrong then are right in terms of whats trying to be conveyed. Think of all the times a stupid text caused some incident let alone argument lol. Somethings are just really hard to put into words heh. To me its like how you think you are perceived and how you are actually perceived. kind of thang

Also if i was a hot chick i could definitely pick up a sociology degree and move to Abu Dhabi as i rocked a 94% Avg on papers.

Will write essays 4 mobpoints Smile

Had a mental reset on Thursday night. Got my drink on with a couple friends and just played some 31 for loonies. Had a blast and got pretty wasted. Everyone has a life here and things happen in that life that we dont really hear about. Usually unless its related to Poker. One such thing had been so bothersome it by way of my mindframe affected my game. My attitude was very poor and as someone who really believes in the merits of a good disposition its hard to justify being sucked into the "blahs". Im very lucky to have good friends who are used to a certain Me. When im not that certain Me i get ridiculed and prodded like i should. With a pat on the back of course to show its all in good fun. I only add all this as it is pertinent to poker in the sense i think my poor attitude begat poor play and that further degraded my attitude even more. Believe me though i have had some real bad luck in games though still but i was paying off more then i should and thats always first indicator.

In fact i almost went thru the trouble of searching HH's to show you how crazy one guy's luck is against me lately. This guy shoved my AA with 53 and snapped me. J10 to my q10. A2 to my AK. I two games he cooled me down numerous times and always played too much and would lose the chips then do it to me again. Once was a rebuy and he cost me like 7$. I take responsibility and i did end up felting him and took all his chips right before rebuy ended but still. The guy is a madman. Chip redistributer is what i call him. lol.

Now heres the weird part of it all. I went into my usual games friday and there was a marked difference in my game. Sure i lost hands but i wasnt upset. I had fun playing and i played a much looser version of poker then i had since i applied myself so much since the 100kgtd game. Still better range then most of my opponents but when i was folding A10 before i was now calling and facing KJ like i usually do. I know i dont play ABC poker but thats doesnt work for me really. I believe all players should start with ABC because it shows them where they can add personal touches. I believe the better the player the wider the range. As this is Micros i know ill be gambling in a hand a bit more then id like but its one hand and im confident if that one hand goes badly ill find chips elsewhere. If i ever move up in stakes i know this will be an issue but as of right now i need to stay the course and dance with the girl who brought me.

GL on the felts players!!!!!!11
