Re: Degen Stories....

Not me, but a friend I introduced to online poker. He started at 3/6 minbet, built a roll to 1k and went to 5/10. He ran it up to like 11k and then moved up to 25/50. He lost it all as fast as anyone can lose that much at minbet poker. He ended up sleeping on my couch for like eight days because he couldn't afford gas to get back home because the day he lost his roll I convinced him to go to an Indian casino with me with his last 50 bucks and play 2-10 spread (he lost it in 2 hands).

Now he moved to Minneapolis and thinks he's a professional poker player because he can't afford rent on his ****ty minimum wage job and takes ridiculously underrolled shots to try to pay for it.

dont listen to people telling you to quit.

You'll turn it around.

I probably had 60 deposits before I cashed out the first time.

Re: Degen Stories....

this is a pretty degen story.

so i decide to head to morongo with a friend. first night, i end up losing around 1.5k, hit the sack, no big deal ill make it back tomorrow with my remaining 1.5k. i buy in for 500, double up, get stacked. buy in again, double up, and get stacked once again. so out of the 3k i brought, i have about 500 left.

i buy in, and work it up to about 2k. and then this hand happens (which i have posted on 2p2 about a month ago).

Effective stax 1800, 5-5 blinds
villian raises to 60, i flat with AK (whoopsie), and spewy asian kid flats.
Flop (180) KK7r. Villain leads with 100, i call expecting spewy asian kid to do something spewy, but he folds.
Turn (380) J. Villian bets 800 (wtf), i ask wtf do you have and after about a minute of tanking shove for my remaining 1600. Villian calls with JJ.

final pot was around 3600 and was the biggest pot i have ever been invovled in.

i have around 300 left and decide to head to the high stakes black jack room with the intention of making every ****ing dollar back that i lost.

With the minimum bet being 100, i ended getting my stack to around 1200. Sure, 1200 would have been good enough to leave with right? Nope, i was still 1800 away from break even. So i started making multiple 100s bets, doubling down on 2 of them, busting that and winning on the other. This continues and then i randomly see a kid i met on a cruise about 5 years before (yea really random that he noticed me, i must have looked like the biggest degen, or possibly a crazy baller making these bets). We start small talk, i get distracted and end up losing everything.

Ya, pretty degenerate weekend if you ask me
