Re: Low Level Debauchery in Vegas

I love this thread! The pictures of ladies, cars and chip porn are all really great. I hope you continue to crush all the Vegas tourists and keep updating this thing.

One question- Do you ever play any higher than 1-2 and 1-3 and if so where?

Lol thx, I def managed to not run bad, though the amusing thing is I did not have the best hand for the large majority of the profits...just managed to avoid showdowns was the run-good part

What I do whenever I'm about to submit a form with long text is I press Ctrl-A to select all, then Ctrl-C to copy it. This way if the submit fails I can use Ctrl-V to paste it back.

I usually do this a few times BUT I had just done copy on a pic link I was inserting a moment before. Was very unfortunate timing.

Thx. Yes I play some 2-5 but not nearly enough...I've been working hard on my live game the last few months though and feel like it's evolving and improving at an accelerated pace...last month or 2 have been almost entirely 1-2/1-3 but have been using those games to actively experiment with some really unorthodox play I plan to take to the 2-5 and up. Over the next few months I will be (hopefully) transitioning to 2-5 almost exclusively then when I feel ready to the 5-10.

I think this is the crux of the 2+2 playing style, which is separated from LAG or TAG styles, which I'm coining AAG, analytic aggressive. We seem to be the one (or one of very few) player at the table constantly analyzing our opponents and looking for exploitable traits. You obviously do a good job at it, with what appears to be a good win rate without many showdowns. This is how we crush our opponents, nits can't stand us and fish are utterly confused.

I had a lady pick up pocket aces against me the other night. She was a tourist from NJ who was playing super tight while her husband was on auto-lose mode. I had pocket JJ and called her 20$ PFR. I took a flop, since I was sitting on 300bbs I thought set mining was fine, came out 724r. I bet 30$ and she shoves 100$ more in. I said, "nice pocket aces, I'm not gonna call that". She literally jumps out of her chair and starts yelling, "I've been watching you all night, all you do is bet bet bet, you're a betting machine, you're not gonna beat me this time!!" And shows her AA after I muck. I chuckled and said, "great hand lady, you really got me that time".

It's this image that we have, "bet bet bet relentlessly" and win many good sized pots without showing down many hands. What they don't know, is we often have air and they can't fathom betting without the nuts. When we bet with close to optimal frequency, we crush out opponents. That's all we need to do, bet, call, or raise with better frequencies than them and we profit.

Cheese, if you don't mind me asking, what's your winrate at 1/2 1/3 these days? I just feel like we play a similar game and would like to compare.

As always, good stuff man.

Re: Low Level Debauchery in Vegas

Display? The table was loud and raucous, her and her husband had been bad mouthing everyone at the table and were several drinks deep. I simply called her out on her hand. It wasn't a shot at her, I simply knew what she held. I figured it might make her a little tilted, maybe, and willing to throw more money at me with worse later. She was sure proud to show those bullets when she won her tiny pot. I had drawn 4 nut flushes in the last 2 hours, and two of them felted her husband both times. I was very demure when I won those hands, as I usually am. They were there to gamble, so I gave her credit for her 'good hand'. If she thinks she can beat me, that's great for me when I show up with a monster later.

Still though, enjoyable reading.

You are really weak in the traps and shoulders area. Gives you a very square appearance. Forearms are small as well. Forget all of these auxiliary exercises you have been doing and start doing deadlifts, squats, BP's, and overhead presses for 4 months or so. You need size. Especially in the shoulders and traps as I said to give you a more aesthetic overall appearance.

Lol...pic was a joke, was trying to look as d-bag as possible in keeping with a 'gym selfie' ...thx for the advice but I pretty much stick to core compound and olympic lifts already...deads-bp-overheads/millitary-squats-lat pds ect. Must insist you post pics of your superior shoulders/traps though. I had let myself get really sickly during my online poker years and it has been a hard road back to getting in shape; here is my progress pics over the last few years. The first pic is actually already into that work, I had gotten pretty concentration camp looking doing 10 hour online grinds and never leaving the house.

Re: Low Level Debauchery in Vegas

So went to Crystals last night; I had told the gf I would get her some shoes. Felt like I owe her a bit for pretty much just letting me keep whatever hours I want recently and also because she surprised me and booked us a poker cruise for December.

This is apparently what $700 Sneakers look like...told her these things better have rocket boosters in them or something.


There was some commotion on my way out and I look up to see Floyd Mo-Money-than-MJ Mayweather and his entire entourage of security/bouncers, rap video looking chicks, and a random assortment of other latch-ons coming in from the valet. I was going to get a pic with him but he was flipping the F#%k out about something so I thought it would be a bad time lol. I got the next best thing I could (better imo but hey I'm not a Mayweather fan); His cars!

Here is the Bugatti he rolled up in



The Rolls those biiig dudes with him ride in...b/c hey there is no way they are cramming into a Bugatti


And an additional pair of Bugattis he was letting some of his people drive; The cream on cream matte looking one was a thing of beauty

You have made great progress. Congrats on that. You may just be one of those people that genetically is meant to have small traps. We can't all be Zyzz. One thing that has really helped my trap/shoulder development is barbell shoulder shrugs using AT LEAST 245 pounds. A good 5 sets of 8. Your back is kinda of under developed as well. The old standbys of pullups and deads are good for that. Don't know what program you are on but I just completed 6 months of this one below and made some nice gainzzzz.

Also, I am surprised no one has asked about this (especially considering the guys on this site haha) but I gather you and your gf have an open relationship? How did that all come about? TIA. I am happily married and something like that is not for me, but I am curious as to what kind of girl is open to that kind of thing.

A few years ago I came out of the Venetian around 7am and parked there was a yellow Lambo. I walk to the back of it to check it out and the chrome Lamborghini logo that is usually on the back had been replaced with a chrome Mayweather logo in the same cursive writing. ****ing guy

There isn't much too it...if I feel the need to indulge, which is pretty rare, I generally have the green light to do so.

Thx. Yeah I'd love to build the traps up, I stopped shrugs when they started aggravating a joint cyst in my wrist but it's probably time to start them back up.

Re: Low Level Debauchery in Vegas

Out 400bb...ran bad and played sub-par at the Venetian tonight. Gambooled the last $340 on a flip pp1010 vs AQos and he got there, asked the guy for action so not complaining. Got my work cut out for me this week I guess.
