Seem to be doing better with tournements than cash lately. Although today I am £3.20 up on cash playing as had 80p left and some how won £4 in the end.

I also finally reached a final table of a small man freeroll and actually won it this time. Two wins this week along with that SNG, so even through all my bad cash times and moaning I am still doing alright. Weird...

So far I have deposited £0 and my bankroll is £22.



------------
Was doing really well on cash tables and was up a couple quid until the standard suckouts and 2/3 outa's happened. Such a sick game sometimes.

------------
Jesus man I think I am getting paranoid. I know bad beats are a part of poker but ever since last night after I won all of that money I have been getting some sick ones. It's making think I cannot make any money on cash tables. Every time I get involved in a big pot I lose due to a bad beat.

Just had now when I had A10o on the button and had someone min raise on the BB. Easy call. Flop came 3910 rainbow. Guy bets out a Cbet so I re-raised him just weary of that 910 in case he had something like JQ/KQ and could have a draw. He ended up re-raising me so I re-raised him knowing he did not have a set and he pushed all in. I thought about it and took the call as he flipped over K7o.

Thought I had won it until a 8 and a J came out to give him a straight. Another bad beat where they go all in with no reason and somehow end up hitting something and beating me.

I am not saying it is rigged or any of that usual crap I spout but come on, why do I keep getting sucked out on or some idiot lucks out like that against me when I am involved in a pot when I get my money in good. It happens far too often for my liking.

------------
This game is so predictable and rigged its funny as f**k. Get great cards and the person behind you calls with s**t and ALWAYS hits and takes your money. Nice set up. Get QQ and raise big, guy with AK AQ will call and a magical ace will flop.

Should have f**ked this cunting game off when I had £24 now I have £7 all due to this suspcious set ups which always helps the guys with bigger chip counts. Funny that isnt it


------------
Every hand they call behind me and have a highercard, they will always get that card. FUNNY THAT ISNT IT! FUCKING SET UP

Another final table appearance. Seems small man MTT's are my thing lately, maybe a switch to small SNG's when I get a bigger bankroll would work in my favour?

------------
Nevermind I wen't out in 9th but still made a tiny bankroll to play with. Should have held on longer but I had AKs in position and had the chip leader limp and push so I would always call it. He flipped over 88 and flopped a set so straight out.

Maybe I will finish higher next time but there was no way I was folding that AKs when I could double up and jump up to 4th in the standings.

MTT wise it has but cash has some hatred towards me variance wise lately. Been sucked out on by two short stacks on a cash table already(First20 minutes of playing new BR) when I got my money in good but I just laughed them both off for once instead of going emo winge. Still even after those two so no damage.

How is your poker going my friend?

I am sure someone may pay for you. I had money on Stars but lost it due to tilt and Bowie was nice enough to pay for my entrance.

From what i saw in the other thread, bowie did it again and sent ronin the buy in.
Not only he has a great voice, but he is very generous also Smile
Dont forget to send something back in case you win in the tournament.

He has a big package as well. Lucky guy.

Of course, even though he would not want anything he would if any of us two won something. Smile

Played a session and everything was going well. Odd fish being annoying but nothing bad but why does everything always have to go wrong after playing so well. Twice in a row I got set up with 99. First against AA with a board full of lower cards than my pair then next hand I had to push with my remaining small stack and ran into a pair of 10's. Add that to a standard fish suckout and some annoying set up hands and my clear mind has now turned to unhappiness.

So one point I was upto £3.60 and now I am on £0.99. This game can be really cruel sometimes, especially to me it seems. Oh well, going to stay calm play a few more hands and if still variance low then i'll have a break.

------------
Also, has anyone else noticed the influx of seeing a lot of set of 2's lately? I have seen them a lot this last week, especially when that person is way out of position, but you course you will never guess someone has them as I would call raises after with those two cards. I have called a few raises with them in position but never hit a set myself sadly.

Getting fed up with big vs small stack set ups when you are the BB deep in MTT's. The amount of times they limp before me and I call because I don't have great enough cards then you get set up with the same sort of hand but they always have a higher second card to always beat you. Also see alot of set up premium pocket all in's with the big stacks always having the better pair.

Just had 79s and he limped with 7jo and of course sets up two 7's and I bubble right before the final table. Funny that, especially after I kept getting short stacked and had to fight my way back above it for ages. I also should have knocked out a player then would have made the FT but he hit two pair and on the turn and turn when I already flopped an ace. Just one of those MTT's where I don't get much and everything feels set up but wanted a little BR to play with. Maybe next time.

------------
True to my word I reached another FT on the next small man MTT and came third. Hand I went out in was rigged as I was against the top stacked guy of us three. Hit a miracle card to get a straight after I had bet the pot and of course he is going to call and hit the one card to beat me, funny that. Goes to show MTT's are rigged to help along the tournament for the big stacks. Proof of this myself is I called a 7k stack with KJs when he had AA and hit a miracle river straight when I should have lost as well as stuff I kept watching as big stacks always suck out.

Funny game and pissed me off to go out the way I did once again but reaching the money and FT's of these small mtt's I am playing a lot of lately is going really well for me. Safe to say I can keep reaching more if I carry on the way I am playing and I won a nice £8 free to play with now so I shall see if I can do well for a change or go busto again. Big Smile

------------
Any ideas for beating fish on microstakes? Because as always I start playing really great and the only times I seem to lose lately is by fish calling straights and hitting their magical hand. Twice already this happened and both times I am in position with AK and both times they call my 3 bet. Both times I flop an ace and both times they call and hit. Or is variance just against me for what seems to be every table I play on even though I am playing well.

Only a BI down now because of both but it is starting to upset me after how these things keep happening to me when I am playing well and bossing a table. Isolating in theory should work against limpers but on microstakes they dont as they will call with anything, like earlier having my AA cracked by 33 after a x5 3bet but that is more variance I guess.

Variance has been against me since that last money win in my new favourite daily small man MTT's. A lot of set up's and suckouts, and I actually sucked out myself twice in one each for once. Today's I was playing really well until two all in's I called(I was tournament biggest stack) and both times both hands were beating me pf, so normal poker there. Both good calls with AKs and KQs though as they were short to medium stacked.

I get into a 1 on 1 with some and I flopped two pair. Guy bets out as he had AQ(TPTK) and I re-raised him where as he went all in. He had position on me and raised PF so he could not have had the QJ to have a straight so I called thinking my two pair were good enough and I could jump back up to the top 3 of the leaderboard. Guy ends up getting runner runner for a fullhouse and knocking me out. Standard suckout but what annoys me is every time I get my money in good with two pair against someone with one pair they always suck out on me. I wasent going to go to showdown because he might have had a draw as well.

Maybe I am playing two pairs bad or something? Cant remember the last time I won an all in where I had two pair and was the favourite. No matter it happens I guess but I really wanted to reach the money after playing so well all tournament and adding a little to my bankroll. I am sure I will start winning these sooner or later.

Cash tables today so far have been well and I have made profit(Albeit very small) but I will take that over losses. Hopefully tonight's big session gets me over break even for once.

A MTT with around 100 odd players. Which means shorter length and easier to make a FT. The ones I have been playing have been for ladbrokes points which I had saved up but now have all gone. Made a few BR's with that though so I am happy. I guess in a sense these ones are basically like a SNG so if I manage to start making enough bankroll I will start doing those as well since I seem to do well in smaller tournaments.

Did not know you stopped playing?

I heard you use pokertracker (not anymore btw but), what does it exactly do, is it really useful?
And how long is the trial?

     
   0   
No I still use it, it's needed if you play. It keeps a log of every hand and every session you have played in both MTT's and cash games so you can revise or see them whenever. You also get stats of players played and that is saved and can be used everytime you are seated with them again and give stats on stuff about them which gives you a little edge.

It also keeps track of your winning and losing stats in graphic and stat form and and everything like that, so it is very useful and all the top online players use them(Not saying I am a top player Big Smile) There is also some other stuff on it like seeing what your playing stats are good or are one of your leaks ect.

The trial is 30 days but I have a way of re-setting it every time it runs out and it keeps the stats and everything.(Thanks to a certain member here Smile) So I would get Poker Tracker 4 if I was you and when it runs out come here and i'll tell you how to reset it.

---

Speaking of leaks I realized a big one of mine last night that is causing me the most losses beside this variance suckout phase I am going through lately. Folding. As in folding when you know or have that gut feeling that you are beat but you think there's no possible way you are losing but when you call you do. Every time I have had that feeling they have that impossible gutshot, boat or a weird two pair they have had it. So I need to start folding more in those positions as well as generally folding more and thinking about it. Losing to a calling stations 62s last night was the last straw on this..

Sounds great! I Always use regedit to bust(?) trial modes.
I think a lot of people and probably all beginning players call too much, you should rather raise or fold.

     
   0   
Yeah that is the thing to use to reset trials. Go for it.

Indeed. People need to fold more but when your TPTK or a higher PP sometimes it is harder. Then again I have folded AA three times this week on the flop so I know how to, sometimes I just need to give up the nice hand I think I have and save more in the long run.

I just tried it but I couldn't get it installed Sad I had to install another program which wouldn't work.

Are there any other pokertrackers which work good too?

     
   0   
Poker Tracker 4 should be a piece of cake to install. Just download then open and install and boom. I remember Ronin having a problem installing this too and gave up. Does it give a reason why it cannot install?

G'day mate

Just dropped in to say hello.
I guess I heard my name being mentioned Smile
I actually figured out how to get Poker Tracker 4 to work.
I was having a software combatability issue do to trying to run 2 separate data base programs.
It works now in the 30 trial mode.
hope things are going well for you
be cool
