Hi I'm a self-proclaimed genius.
So, if someone want's to help me excel my game, that would be appreciated. I think I'm a genius, but I just never give a **** about anything.
I am a University student in Canada. I've played poker since I was ..what.. 14, here and there. Took it seriously when I was 16, a nice lady gave me 10 dollars, I turned it into approx. 650. Cashed out, and invested about 300 back in, losing most of it. So I quit, started playing freerolls here and there, won a couple... (winning like 30 dollars) on party poker, etc. Then there started to be less and less freerolls; I quit investing time into a game I couldn't afford.
I started again first year of University, rusty, turned 20 dollars into 140, withdrew, and once again stopped playing.
That summer I found a new site I liked, Titan Poker, and lost probably around 100 bucks. Invested into a 6 dollar tournament. (I usually stuck to cash games, only playing in freeroll tournaments). Won the tournament, $1,300, was enough to make me not work all summer and enjoy a summer of boozing and partying.
I stopped playing after this also, as mother kept saying I had a gambling problem, but I think she just wanted me to use my money more wisely and productively, because she said I had a drinking and partying problem also.
Last summer I discovered that the Casino's have cash tables, 1-2 NL Hold'em (they used to only have limit poker before, I hate limit). So I started investing my money here. Probably lost about $120 playing all summer, not including the 300-400 I lost at blackjack or other stupid games while waiting for a table spot to open. I figured losing $120 was decent, I learned a lot, I think. I would pick up on hands that people tended to play, how they played them, etc.
So overall, I've probably lost more money than invested into poker, maybe, it's hard to tell, but it's fairly even.
I go to a Canadian school, and have realised Canadian education kind of sucks. I want to attend Columbia for my MBA in business once I finish my undergrad in Canada.
Problem: I never gave a **** about school and have a 2.7 GPA first year, and a 1.8-1.9ish 2nd year. I discovered marijuana 2nd year and the ultimate level of not giving a ****, about anything. By this I mean, leave school for a week and a half to go visit a girl back home. Not study for mid-terms, party before mid-terms, finals.
I am a genius because I will turn my 2.3 or whatever GPA into a 3.8+ within 2 years. I currently have a 4.0 average right now. It's quite amazing what going to class can do and studying a tiny bit. I will probably attend either Standford U. or Columbia, as my former program Director has ties with Columbia and is currently a prof at Stanford. He thinks I'm the greatest thing since "sliced bread". After my poor performance in year 2, I decided to step away from the schools business program, plus the fact that our director was leaving for Stanford. I messed up, clearly, but now I'm going to re-enter, graduate with my business degree and attend a real school, to make real business connections.
Now, I think I can be a solid poker "athlete" because of three main facts, I have experience, I've won and been successful and I can constantly go deep in freeroll tournaments involving 4000-10,000 terrible poker players.
Right now my goal is to win a PCA Main Event package without spending a penny. So far, I've placed in the top 50 3 times, just to win a ticket into he Main Event tournament.
I am unsuccessful because I need to learn more, does anyone want to take on this opportunity, teach me the specific details of poker?
We can talk about my game, but it varies, I bluff well, call bluffs fairly well, i play loose, I play tight, I play very tight, I change my style/game.
