Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

FW - i dont think outting himself is that big of a deal personally. However, the 5/10/20 is really really bad. He just has zero impulse control. the best thing that could happen is for him to go busto really quickly and have his world cave in. Maybe then he would realize how bad gamboolin is for him. sadly even with all of those things he would prolly still need to scratch that itch. I have just seen it wreck so many lives it kind o bums me out seeing someone teeing themselves up for a massive wreak.

***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

When I met him, he kept wanting to talk about the action in the big games - how many whales, how big the games are in Sydney etc.

I had just moved from a really tough 5/5/10 to the 2/5 ( he was playing 1/3) but when I told him I’d table selected down in stakes for a better table I could tell he didn’t really understand that and he actually told me he thought that the 5/10 table was soft. I’m like...there’s 7 reg/pros on it all playing TAG

The advice I gave him was about how you used to do it tbh in Vegas - play a fixed schedule, commit to the hours, no drinks, no massages, no pit games, treat it like a job etc. but he’s not there yet in his head.

As I’ve posted before, he’s just an amiable and naive kid. If he could find a decent job and then just play 12 weekend hours per week he’d probably be able to win a little at poker but he doesn’t know what he doesn’t know and he’ll be busto within a month imo, unless he runs like Jeebus

So he seems pretty obsessed with the bigger games, and all that comes with it- pretty classic scenario when it comes to delusional young guys entering the livescene imo. They are living in this sugarcoated fantasyworld where they create their own reality.

They have a crusher winrate already of course, every bigger game like 5/10 or even 5/10/20 looks soft despite the table having 6-7 grinders/pros on it, every other good player goes on huge soulcrushing downswings from time to time except themself+++.

This is really at the bottom line a kind of defence mechanism to escape the difficult reality that is life, similar to consuming alot of alcohol (unhealthy drinking patterns) or taking drugs to get high.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

I played in a $10/20/40 game today that I think was the literal worst. Including me, at one point the table was 8/9 HSNL pros, a bunch of them clearly with strong online backgrounds who played a GTO-based online style. These guys would play super solid yet be really aggressive and not let you realize your equity if they had a range advantage. They clearly knew which boards were good/bad for their range. The remaining guy was a non-spewy rec player who had some sizing leaks but otherwise wasn't a spot. I didn't feel overmatched, but after about 4 hours of this bull**** I decided it was time to find a better game.

Fwiw... Keurig machines do make coffee that tastes like what I imagine pee tastes like. That's not my fault tho.

Welp...

I played at a 1/3 game yesterday with 3 clueless tourists, 1 tablet nit, 1 OMC, 2 pros, and Lapdatrix.

Seemed unbeatable to me. I kept getting called down by folks hitting runner-runner draws.

I also left frustrated after 3-4 hrs of that BS.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

closed the starbux on Sat night. REally complicated trying to depose my old pseudoboss before he gets imprisoned.

San Tan Lime Leaf turned out to be not so bad, as far as fruit infused beers go. Whoever thought of that is executing a bad idea well.

A very rare good Saturday night game, for about an hour. Three way all in on AQ5 for a 4k pot (maybe not that good, QQQ vs 555 vs assumed strong Ace). While it played out the suits surrounded the table. Three players, including the winner, were ejected for being too intoxicated 1 hour after last call. Again, not for being disorderly, just for being drunk.

How have games been in general? Or are you blowing your brains out in HS the entire time

My strat is play the free down, then pay for one and move after. No need to blow your brains out imo.

I expect DD to actually get more popular as time goes on, especially if augmented reality **** starts getting integrated

Pretty much playing HS the entire time.

Games have ranged from pretty good to abysmal. A late night short handed game with two drunk whales is always a possibility. Daytime reg games are ugh.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

I feel dumb. My "N" key got stuck a few months ago. When I took it off and cleaned it, it didn't go on quite right. So over half the time I typed an N, it didn't take, and I had to go back and edit everything I typed to put in missing Ns. I put up with that crap for months because I didn't want to do without my computer for they 10 days that the repair shop wanted it.

Finally, my wife was looking at upgrading my RAM, preparatory to me starting my PhD program, and happened to check how much a new keyboard would cost. It cost $20, and it took me 10 minutes to install, 6 of which was watching a YouTube video on how to do it. Damn I wish I'd done that sooner.

Just out of curiosity, how much did you think a keyboard would cost? And the repair shop actually said it'd take 10 days?

I once broke my spacebar so had to copy a space and hit ctrl-v every time I wanted to hit space bar. Couldn't get a new keyboard for a few days.
