Re: The Well: the_main

Hey Im from Canada and play on party...Im almost rolled for 50nl but only play party 10nl as of right now...and sometimes fulltilt tournys. They have a bonus thing there where you hit 2500 points and you can trade it for 25 bucks I think I can hit it twice a month...More when I move up to 25nl and become a King(probably 4 times monthly). Does that sound like a good "rakeback deal"?
Also do you think I should transfer to stars??? It seems really soft there as well just by judging from alot of posts. You get rakeback etc there right? I play a fair bit of hands (over 1k per day at least)

Re: The Well: the_main

I don't really play those stakes, so I couldn't comment on whether that's a good deal or not.

Also, I have no idea which site is softer at those limits. I would just assume party is softer b/c I can't play there anymore.

Re: The Well: the_main

"Depends what style I'm playing. Today was 27% over 2k hands.

Re: The Well: the_main

I've found I have 3 gears. 17/14, 13/10 and 10/8.
I can never predict whos gonna show up, but it has probably confused 1 or 2 regs.

Re: The Well: the_main

I just read through most of the well, but I apologize if something I ask has already been discussed.

1. How many tables do you normally play at a time now (since the max went to 24)?
2. When you change gears, or styles, is it table dependent? Mood dependent? If it is table dependent, how are you easily able to do so while playing so many tables?
3. What stakes did you play SNGs at?

1. MT ratio is 14, but I'm usually playin 15-16. This is only because my comp lags at anything more. I'm hoping to ramp up my MT ratio when I get my new laptop next week.

2. I can't explain it... it just sort of happens. I think its largely mood dependant though. (when i'm tired, i'm playing 10/8 almost always).

3.$10s and $20s. This was during the partypoker 'glory days' and was like printing money. I had no desire to play cash games at the time (tourneys were all the rage), but I'd probably be rich by now if I had.

Not sure. I wish there was a way to check your stats vs. specific opponents. Is there?

Anyways, you usually come on when I'm finishing up my session, so I wouldn't be too surprised. In my recent db I'm 13/10 over 100k hands.

Re: The Well: the_main

Does most of your profit come from exploiting other players OR other players playing sub-optimally?

Definitely the latter. But I'm working on that.

Re: The Well: the_main

Seoul is supposed to be one of the most expensive cities in the world, but I manage to get by relatively cheaply.

My rent+utilities is about $800/month (i have a 1bedroom apartment). And I end up spending about $1k/month on food, entertainment, etc.

The starcraft scene? lol, sadly no

I met rekrul though at an APPT event and he was a nice enough guy. I actually got mistaken for him 3 times that weekend.
