Re: The Well: Jorj95 (George Lind III)

it seems like stacking tables on top of each other would be very efficient, but I worry about sitting out of a tourney on accident and not knowing it, anyway you can tell?

If you are using Vista you can check the tables really easily. On your taskbar there should be a tab for each table. If you mouse over the table it brings up a mini version of the table. It is really easy to tell when you are sitting out because there will be a big black oval on the bottom right corner and it's easily visible even on the mini window. Once you get used to it it's fairly easy to go thru 20 tables in 2 or 3 seconds and just look for a big black oval.

Also it's not like you'll just be randomly sitting out of a table ever. The only time I ever am sitting out is when I get backed up for whatever reason and then when I catch up and have a couple seconds free time I'll scroll thru the tabs real quick just to make sure I'm not sitting out anywhere.

If you are using XP you can't do this as far as I know. I cascaded on XP and didn't switch to stacking until I bought my new laptop about a year ago.

Re: The Well: Jorj95 (George Lind III)

Do you ever play in those $5600 HU sng's? Is there something that Stars can do to help the steps traffic? It's pretty daunting for a casual player to grind through the steps only to find guys like you,Stevie and Busto et al waiting to pull their heads off in step6.

It's like a playoff team always having to play the '85 Bears in the superbowl...amirite?

Re: The Well: Jorj95 (George Lind III)

I made this question to Sparta in his well , but I would like to have your opinion too , if it is possible:

My primary lenguage is not english , so maybe the grammar and the way I ask is a bit confusing , sorry about that .

I have a trouble playing sng with not regs at all. Seems that loosenes of the games give me troubles. I tigh my game and try to play Push/fold poker . ( off course I play good cards at the beginning) , but basically I try to preserve my stack until 10BB came and start to work with ranges to push or fold. Pretty standard but with bad results .
When I finnish , I review with sng wiz and work with the one sngwiz tell me is wrong.
Plus i take notes about calling range and weird situations in the game.

This kind of play is very different that my play on stars.

Why Im doing this ? cause my play on stars need a lot of complicated plays , more focused , more cbet , 2 barrels , more reads , etc . With this play I can play only a few tables with a decent profit .

I want to make a good profit , so I will start to play a softer site with standard push/fold play untill my ICM mistakes become almost 0. With this play , i could play more tables , maybe 10 or more , with (i hope) a good profit .

This is why I m asking you about ICM , cause Im trying to play very math poker , but im bleeding cash .

Can you give some thoughts or advice ?

Thanks in advance

PD: My last plays doesnt work because people always see a Flop when they have 1300 and I raise 250 at 50/100. Plus the cbet , forget to steal blinds with no Allin moves.

Re: The Well: Jorj95 (George Lind III)

I'm having trouble developing my game fully. I am an accomplished $60 turbo player and can't seem to move beyond into the high stakes arena. What would you recommend doing?

With opponents ranges always in-flux in SNGs how do you help yourself stay ahead of them in the adjustment war?

I don't play the hu sngs except when I was flipamenting.

If they quit letting people use step 4 tix for the sunday mil it would obviously help the traffic for the steps, but it's too late to change that back now.

As for having to face mostly regulars in the step 6s, if it wasn't for us they would hardly ever go in the first place.

Yeah this is a trivially easy call vs pretty much anyone. I doubt he's shoving atc here but I'm sure he's not that far off.

Sorry about your bad beat.

Obviously you have to adjust your play against bad players. If they're calling too many hands then it's possible you should be playing even tighter and just letting them bust each other until you sneak into the money.

People's ranges don't change all that much imo. I mean they might change a little but there are people who are notoriously too loose and many other who are notoriously too tight and that rarely changes.

As for moving up I'd recommend just playing your normal 60s and mixing in a few 114s at the same time. But really though you shouldn't be in a hurry to move up if you're making decent money as it is. There is something called the Peter Principle in business world that says that every employee will be promoted until he gets to a job at which he is incompetent, and then he remains there. This is something you see all the time in the poker world too. People will move up in limits as long as they're winning, then finally find a high enough game that they're not able to beat, and instead of playing the game below at which they're a winning player, they stay and struggle at the higher limit.

GL!!!!
Chip count at the end of day 1: 0. Only one really eventful hand, I was at about 12k chips with blinds 200/400. I raise to 1050 utg+1 with qq, folded to bb who calls. Flop 2h4h7d, bb says all in after a few seconds thought, I snap call, he had 65d, 3 on the turn, gg me. Other than that I just bled chips all day.

Fwiw I wasn't griping about the regs being there, I was asking if you knew some way, or had a suggestion to increase the traffic so you guys wouldn't have to keep playing each other. I know you are right about the step 4's, and since they did that, they might have well made the steps winners able to cash for T$ or W$'s and kill them all together.

Haha I totally forgot about that. Now I am quite sad that stars had the audacity to lie to me about such a treasured item.
