Re: I moved to vegas to play poker blah blah blah follow me thread

Well i look at things in a positive light i guess. I would rather buy in for more so i can make more money and move up faster, not just lose the minimum.

If things dont work out drop back down to the regular game.

Wtf is all this talk about IMP being better suited in a 9 handed game? He's an aggro player who wants to play many hands so his winrate would skyrocket sitting in a lolsoft LV 5 handed 2/5 game.

Pretty standard 1,2 game.. No super fishes, no strong players. Mostly passive players. If situations come up ill make sure to give better individual reads

Utg tank folds A6s muttering that itssuited and he really wants to play. sb has 66, bb has KK. Board runs out QcJc3d2c9h. i had Ac. Bricked 15out river for 2200ish pot. fml. i leave take 200 to bj. (very rare thing for me to do) and proceed to get my 500 back. sucks that i lost the hand but on a side note i was playing well and feel im for sure ready for the 2,5 skill wise. Im going to wait till the roll is at least 15k+ though before i take another shot. Im really excited for when that comes though because i love how the 2,5 game plays compared to the 1,2 and i feel ill do great in it.

Beat: took a shot at 2,5 and busted 750 stack
Brag: got my 500 back at bj from the hottest chick dealer in the pleasure pit
Variance: idk fml i suppose
Seems like a crazy play for a cash game. It's not a tournament. With so many staying in after a 3-bet, some of your outs are bound to be gone.

Re: I moved to vegas to play poker blah blah blah follow me thread

The hand seems fine. Not an amazing place to get your money in but there's a lot of dead money in the pot and you're racing the majority of the time. What should be a concern is the post bad beat blackjack. Super bad habit to get into. Don't be fooled by it working this time. Take it as a lesson and a blessing of good fortune and don't ever go to the pit after a loss if you're trying to do this as a profession. It's a slippery slope my friend. Anyways GL with the grind and thanks for the read.

Thanks for the input, our thinking in the hand is pretty much the same. Glad you enjoyed the thread. I can promise everyone you won't catch me in the pit again for a very long time.. Scouts honor.

And why gamble with a bad player when you know you can gradually take their entire stake with less risk? Unless you feel like both players only have AQ/AJ type hands, I'm not sure I like the shove against 2 players.

Just my two cents.
if he sits, he should simply play as if he were rolled for the game, otherwise you lose value and make mistakes, and shoving is the best play there

If I just call I let the sb and bb come in also if they so choose.
so sick you feel like you should even begin to explain this

Also on this hand there are 2 options shove or fold.... if I was at the table and I saw the hand you spoke of previously I'm shoving all day at a 1-2 table....at a 2-5 I might convince myself to fold but I doubt it....

Gona have to disagree here, once the dude made it 280, and he is a fish, you know he is calling any all in, so at best you PRAY he has Ax, but not likely in that spot esp when one guy said he had an Ax. Any pair and you are off to the races for 1400, not what you want to do playing for a living. I just do not understand why people fall in love with AK so much.

Re: I moved to vegas to play poker blah blah blah follow me thread

Yeah, don't second-guess getting it in with AK there. It's a high variance spot but you can't avoid those as a serious player, it's unfortunate it didn't work out during a shot. You've been sufficiently chastised for the blackjack so I won't belabor that, but nevertheless, 10 lashes with a wet noodle from me as well.
