I had notes on you...solid player who went deep many times on the 1.10 limit nightly. Was that your game of choice?

I keep notes on players like Tgeezee...JKfocus...Barbiaux...Alyvescah...
Mattmatic...Koz1754

I loved the players who would talk chit at the tables after a badbeat or when they stacked someone, like
BobbytheBull...Slickdon...IamShane41

There were one or two others that were real nasty at the tables...SN I don't remember. Some dope from Flint, Mich or Maryland...played the 1.75 alot. Just a real pain in the azz all night long.

If I was on tilt for the day A23 was going in. Funny how PokerStars rewarded ACES 8 out of 10 times. The two times it lost...I had AA.

re: Unofficial Stars 18-man SNG turbo Thread

IN knockout tourneys I made so much money with AA's. Out of 100 times all in I was knocked out an average of 6 times and knocked out an average of 35 people, not to mention the chipstack advantage I got. I kept a spread sheet and tracked all of my AA's so I knew when it wasn't working anymore but I never got to that point and now I never will :sigh:

Barbiaux...we played many times together. Do you feel that in Omaha 8o any hand that had an Ace-and any wheel card not a 2 (3-5) and pocket pair higher than TT was a big favorite to win agaisnt A23X...A23-9 (no card higher than a 9)...or even
A24Kds? Felt like Jacks or Queens would hold up alot of the times. Maybe I am on LifeTilt right now. JokeStars was famous for the badbeats when you are chipleader going agaisnt the short stack.

And lets not talk about 2345 crushing AA2Whatever.

So with that...what is the best hands to go to battle with?

Four cards to the six high st8...
AA with two wheel cards
AA with two broadway cards
AA XX whatever
A with two wheel cards
A with two broadway cards

thank you sir..i havent played the 1.10 limit nightly in a while tho. hard to stay up that late anymore. kept telling myself i would play the nightly tournys soon, now the choice isn't there and i regret that i kept pushing it off. i was fine with just making enough to pay my bills and that is it. unfortunately i am screwed now. i liked tgeezee, he was a cool cat. i was strictly a pl omaha hi lo player. i got away from fixed limit because they only played 2 regular fixed o8 mtts under $6. i could only play no limit in the 18, 27 and 45 man sit n gos becuase imo to play a no limit o8 tourny, u have zero margin for error. cheers man, hopefully we'll play again.

I just started to truly learn the game about summer of 2010...so no I don't take offense. I was pushing way to early and often in PL and NL Omaha games. But if it was blind vs blind...any ACE would do agaisnt a tight player. Our stats r very alike over the last 90 days, in schedule tournaments...lol.

just because ur loose doesn't make you a bad player. to get me heated, you must be good. i really feel like in the last year i became a solid player and honestly i felt the money was there to be made whenever i wanted to make it. unfortunately i kept delaying going hard and now the option is not there. i did make final table in my very last tourny...and since i registered for 3 scoop satelites before the ban, i remained entered...and woke up at 2pm with a table open lol (thought i was dreaming when i kept hearing the chips at the table). i won a ticket and now im registered in the $10 omaha hi lo pl scoop event which goes down in may i think. doubt i'll be able to play it, but i am keeping my fingers crossed. it's funny how good you play when you release you'll never be able to play again.

we are both profitable players according to officialpokerrankings.com

re: Unofficial Stars 18-man SNG turbo Thread

Going deeper with the stats...S&G and Scheduled tournaments over 2000 games r very close. I don't know if its good or bad but I see green and no reds...I did have a major downswing over the last month or so. Tilt is a big leak in my game. There must have been a 10 to 20 game no cash streak in there somewhere. Thanks to the DOJ it was stopped.

re: Unofficial Stars 18-man SNG turbo Thread

is the Zuri challange still going ?

It's too bad traffic in O8 is so slow and after BF now. It's hard to imagin getting 50 tables running before u bust out are u sure u ever got 50 going at once ?
When i ran too many Omie games i got confused and too pressured short handed.
I think i maxed out at 18 table before i went crazy >with them all spread out <
I like to multi table like Boku stacking games " Blinking" only with holdem!
I could mix in a few H/L games with the holdem though
i think u will hurt over all results since IMO H/L Omie takes lot's more thought NLH and when u mix the 1.75$ with 3.40$ and 6$ play quality differs so much when can u find the the time to recognize you are not calling "Serg Maths" all in u just called Alyvescha oh ****

Am I the only one that stacks according to stakes? I usually have 3 stacks STT sng's up top, 6.50s in the middle and 3.40's down at the bottom. Dunno if that helps when you're 18 tablin tho

I also stack by stakes. I feel there is more fold equity in the $1.75s near the bubble so I try to make lighter shoves there. In the 3.40s and 6.50s, I used to treat them the same, but they don't run enough for me to not separate them anymore. I don't think you can get more than 10 going at a time now.
