i believe that a lot of the players in this forum could make more money with less variance playing cash games, from a former post it seems you're pretty good at cash, would you agree with this?
um, no specific music, bands etc, whatever mood im in. but when i won my first tourney in 2007, i listened to ''we are the world'' for 7 hours straight, so thats epic imo.

i don't think i play enough, or put enough time in, to rate myself at Cashgame...but i think in the HU CG i def should be pretty decent.

1) How do you analyze your game-do you use some tracking software afterwards? Do you work with endgametools like SNgWiz to go over some decisions? Do use any push/fold trainers SNGWIZ or pokerstrategy-icmtrainer?
2) Did you get your knowledge through books or through try and error?
2) In which German poker-forums are you active?
3)whats your biggest strenght in mtts?
4) Which concept in MTTS do you think is totally misapplied by many player?
6) You wrote about opening up your game-do you isolate limpers with weaker holdings just because they often fold on the flop to cbets like in cashgames?
7) I hope i win some mtts in the next weeks and can move up to mtts with you in them-please tell me if you ever go on monkeytilt and how to induce it.
5) Who wins the Bundesliga and the Championsleague-i root for Barcelona for CL winner, theyre owning souls atm.

ty for your time, gl
1) meh, honestly, i don't put to much time in, after my sessions is finished, eventho i should review more stuff, im just to lazy for that ldo.
2) mostly through playing, making my own mistakes, etc. u still get the most experience by playing, books and stuff are def. helpful, but u shouldn't just play according to what the book tells you or some stuff
3) meh, pokerinstitut is the only forum i kinda like, cause its not only full of nerds who talk dumb things all the time, that pisses me off.
4) i think adjusting to how the others play, taking adv. of that
5) i think minraising pre and stuff is still something i can't see the point of it being profitable
6) meh, i think the concept works more late in tourneys, ppl don't fold anything in CGs, esp. at higher Limits like NL200/400 - but in MTT's this concept of isoing weak ppl when the stacksizes are right for it works out
7) meh, not anymore, but when i first started playing i often managed to spew away few hundered bucks after i finished late in a tourney
8) as long as it isn't ****ing Hoffenheim or Bayern Munich, im ok w/ any other team. i don't care about the Champions League tbh. **** this idiots.

(3) Like ssnyc asked before - some gossip from Sydney please?
(4) Do you know my game? Just in case thoughts on it, but Id be surprised
(5) Do you play high? If so suggest bananas imo.



(6) Did you notice anything special it just took him 5 seconds for?
(7) Was Maik Franz making a valid point when he stated Mario Gomez is great at football but his personality is capable of development?
(8) Are you going to see VfBs games a lot? (football that is noobs)
(9) Do you get up earlier for shopping?
(10) Do you think even a blind chicken finds a grain once in a while?
1) everything is soft, so play them all
2) no specific schedule, but def gonna go to dortmund
3) meh, besides a ****ed up sleeping schedule, i didn't do anything special beside getting drunk twice and the fact that i almost slapped a old idiot after he sucked out in a 350$ CG and made some dumb comments after. **** old livenits!
4) can't comment on it, didn't see enough of it
5) lol
6) i mean, saying that im most skilled tennis star ever, isn't that special?
7) **** maik franz, wat gomez said after that game was 100% and i totally agree w/ him here.
8) yeah, to every home game, and went to like every away game the last 3 years, atm not to that many away games anymore cuz of poker.
9) lol wat
10) ldo

It seems that a new American player will either be a calling station or tight-weak, and most of the Germans I met were betting/re-raising out of the gate.

I'd be curious as to your experience and thoughts in the different mindsets of the two groups and how you feel they approach gambling.
meh, i think there are a lot of bad german players, which are either superpassive nits, or terribe players.

the few good german players know how to play, and play aggressive and stuff and know how to play, but overall i think the level of the bad german players is worse, than the bad american players

Re: teh HotKarlMC well

Why do you suppose that you find success in MTTs, but do poorly in Multi-table SNGs (i'm basing this off of your OPR and Sharkscopes). Do you use the same style in both? If so, why do you think you style works better in an MTT versus a 180 SNG?

meh, when i first started i played so much SnGs, and i was so terrible playing them...i think most of my Sharkscope stats go back to a time where i was absolutley terrible at playing SnGs and had no clue how to play them...now i think it's not that case anymore, but i was completly clueless how to play sngs, when i started playing them early 2007, and when i played a lot of them

Do you think you would do better in a tourney if you did the whole thing sober versus say maintaining a 4 beer buzz throughout.

Re: teh HotKarlMC well

suggestions on improving my game...

help me learn better spots to open...I think I do not open nearly enough

What has changed for you pokerwise over the last 6 months? You seem to have caught some magic and was there a major change in your play?
