re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Went to the casino tonight with the intention of playing 1/3, but no games were running so sat at 1/2. Ran up $300 to $500 in about an hour, and then a huge fish at my table who I've played with before announced he was going to 2/5. I checked out the table he was playing at and noticed 2-3 more fish I have played 1/2 with, so instantly switched to 2/5 and bought in for $1000.

It was about the fishiest table I have ever been at...wish I could have picked up more hands, but was given this gift.

2 limps, sb folds. Hero checks option 63

Pot ($17)
Flop: 66K

Hero bets $15
One call.

Pot ($47)
Turn 3

Hero bets $50
Villain raises to $200
Hero raises to $650
Villain calls.

Pot ($1347)
River: 7

Hero shoves for 345
Villain calls

Pot ($2000)
Hero shows 63
shows Q2
Ship it

Only played for a couple hours, won another medium sized hand, lost a few small hands,and made one bad river call. Ended the day +900 and left once the table became a lot less fishy.

Good start to my 2/5 shot-taking

Hey guys, where's the best place to play 1/3 in Vegas? I saw the "Wynn Casino", 1/3 max $500, is a good match?

Is this at $1/2 or $2/5 and at the same card room? If it's the latter, maybe you should move down in stakes and see if you can get some momentum going over a 50 hour time period. Also if you live by multiple casinos maybe you can mix it up and play at a different venue for a fresh perspective.

That's pretty similar to mine then.

I get about 45 hours in a month, with varying session lengths and the occasional 100 hour month when I get a vacation. Most of 2015 has been really short sessions and it's been a very noisy year with up and down swings to end up basically flat.

Changing venues helps some, as does taking a break from the game for a while.

There are a couple of threads on this in the Las Vegas Lifestyle forum. Wynn has a good rep, though I hear they are moving their room, so everything might change.

Not to derail the thread, but the Wynn poker room is in the perfect location as far as I am concerned. I love sitting near the front so I can see all the sweet eye candy walk by scantily dressed at 2:30 a.m.

What does being near the poker room have to do with it?

Standard to check them out while my eyes are open.

Yes.

I did in about Feb. Haven't posted another since then. It would be depressing.

Pretty sure I probably posted mine @ 2000 hours, where I was $28.33/hr at my 1/3 NL game.

At the 2,547 hour mark, I'm currently sitting @ $23.96/hr and rocketing towards zero.

I have a sample poast bf of approx closing in on 8k hrs

at 2/5

w/r over 10bb/hr
biggest ds approx 7.5k (with some bad play)
approx 1 losing month every 14 months. Losing months have all been small losers. Many 10k+ months
longest b/e is under 200 hrs (I cant remember the number)

My old computer got stolen. I have all my records on paper and 1 day will make a new database. I am committed to getting an app for my phone and will back enter all my data for grins

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

@squid: that's primarily 2/5 in Vegas with 1k buy-in & you bought in for 1k?
7.5k is biggest downswing, or biggest loss in one day?

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

most of the sample is vegas me buying in 1k
7.5k is my largest total downswing. AND there was some bad play.

I have said this before. My downswing is larger than every player I know in vegas who really pounds the game

it is larger than rob farha, cushlash, spc, and a few others who you guys dont know

Semi regularly I see good 2/5 players drop 2.5-3k in one session. I mean That's only 2.5-3BI's! Maybe Vegas games are just very different? How often are you getting all in pf or OTF with 200bb? Do you get whales blind shoving 100+BB?

I have said this countless times. The games in vegas are fine and very beatable. BUT the games in the hinterlands are epic in comparison.

True story: The other night I am gamboolin in my new locale. The game is frigging off the chain bananas - SPC is home sick. I am on the verge of texting to tell her she's got to come play. I then realize that it is a standard game in my new locale. Had this game been going down in vegas I would have stayed forever.

leaving Vegas for other games in other places = leaving your small town high school in woop woop and going to UT at Austin and realising that the girls you obsessed about in HS are now girls you walk past without noticing because there's a stone cold stunner around every corner
