Thanks, I rarely enjoy playing live unless I'm getting hammered or have some good company.

theres really not much to it. It was actually a playboy tournament which is infinitely better than a pokerstars anything.

I was conceirging something from stars, and once it was done the guy helping me via email asked me if I golfed, and said I could have a free package for making him laugh or something. They had some extra packages and I was happy to help out.

I got to bring my buddy, and we played in a foursome with 2 other stars guys. It was supposed to be a SNE guy who played SNGs, but he got his buddy who was sick at golf to play for him and they agreed to chop any prizes. The guy was really good, and we were playing best ball so we did really well. In 18holes I think we used 2 of my shots, both putts.
We ended up finishing third in a pretty big field.

Only 2pics i have from the event:

Anyways, he 3bets me waaaaay to big, to like 25bbs. I decide to call and try to hit huge. The flop came A high with two raggy cards, and all I had was an backdoor flush. He bet 50bbs into me and I tanked. There was just somehting that didnt feel right. SO I MIN-RAISED.

He himmed and hawed, showed an ace and folded.
This is a terrible line

Dang I remember when the_main was some of my best and favorite competition at 200, back in the day at full ring. -Crackityjoe

You definitely need to smoke something if you're not, although I'm unsure about the heroin. Whatever you decide, you should return to your roots at full ring and come crush again, if those are indeed your roots.

As was stated, you can smoke heroin...or snort it. You don't have to inject it. So, with that new piece of info, would you ever do it?

Re: The Well: the_main

im sure there is some set of circumstances that would lead me to do it, yes.
probably not something id ever actively seek out though.

also,
thanks everyone for the nice comments, always nice to read.
and forest, i definitely remember those days being a lot of fun. i still play some FR rush on full tilt every now and then. i really think FR is tougher than 6m as you find yourself in more unique situations more often

Nice well, thanks!

What else do you do to study the game than review your big pots and study regs in HEM? Any particular things you find very useful for improving at the game that you think most players don't do enough?

Re: The Well: the_main

Yeah, definitely.
More than anything I think having good people around you to talk about the game with is important. You can bounce ideas off each other and do sweats which are incredibly helpful.

I've been hanging out with a good group of guys in Vancouver who are pretty smart (well, with poker at least) and they've helped me a bunch.

I realize this is not something that is easy to make happen, so chat/skype groups with other good players you trust/respect would be a decent substitute, I imagine.

Re: The Well: the_main

Yeah it's pretty sweet. The physics engine is a lot more realistic, and they added a whole new dimension to the game with the play in front of the net.
You can tie people up in front and fight for position, and the goalie is in play this year. Changes a lot, and the game feels a lot more complete.
