re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Can anyone tell me how to post a pic correctly? When I post from photobucket, there is a bar at the top of the image that takes you to my photobucket account. Thats not supposed to happen right?

That was a lame attempt at humor. You don't want an old guy like me trying to actually answer your question.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

I am coming up on a significant sample size of hours. I have recorded 5 different $10k downswings over close to 3k hours of live poker, which make me think a $20k bankroll is required for 2/5 as well as six months of living expenses. What do you guys think?

I lokked at your deleted posts, and 2/3 look fine to me. post the pic somewhere not blocked by 2+2 (photobucket is fine, I sue tinypic.com). Then hit "Insert Image" (icon looks like a lame landscape painting) and enter the URL of where the pis is posted.

EZ game.

You a LAG? Uncapped buy-in? Those are huge downswings.

i would seriously consider the possibility that you aren't a good/winning player if you've dropped 20+ buy-ins 5 different times in 3000 hours. im not sure that is standard. could be wrong. just a thought that would cross my mind.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

The point is to float the flop ship the turn if he checks. When he checked the turn I can assure you he was not trapping with queen high. He checked because he didn't want to get it in but couldnt help himself. Anyway, I'm not going to go from chess to checkers to grind out $40/hr.

Mikestarr, yes I play bad in 2-5 in general since a buyin is 1 BB from the good old days although I played this hand fine.

Maybe you guys don't understand how big games are played. I'm aware some $2-5 grinders lay down a pair every time someone leads out into them or lays down top pair/overpair everytime they get raised post flop but you will not beat the bigger games this way. I've seen a few players try to move up into our weekly game and get up after an hour or two without winning a pot post flop because they didn't expect so much heat.

No just move up. That's the answer....

So you are aware how $2/$5 games are played, but you still played a $2/$5 game like a $10/$25 game? You obviously think you are better than everyone else, but you also cant beat a $2/$5 game so I would have to seriously question that.

Since you are constantly complaining that there are no more high stakes games (where people play the way you like to play), and you cant beat $2/$5 games because the players are just too bad for you....I guess you have to quit poker. There's just not enough good players for you to win anymore.

I didn't realize your HH was from a 10/25 game...oh wait it wasnt. Go whine somewhere else because your ego is so big you can ONLY play bigger games. Just like not all hands are played the same not all games are the same. You keep mentioning bigger games and 10/25 like it's the only way poker is played. Fact is 99% of 2/5 games never play the way you speak of. So when we point out how the 2/5 hand you posted was played poorly and the reasoning behind it the response we get is basically we are just nits grinding. LOL GL in that new career

Those are some massive downswings. You must be playing one hell of an aggressive style. Whats your win rate?

I'm sure I posted mine at 2000 hours and perhaps even a few after that (at least my winrates / giraffes).

Sad isn't it? It's just miserable sitting at a table with a bunch of losing players. How can we possibly win?

For some reason, good higher stake winners never seem to be able to beat bad lower stake players.

I have heard that since dawn of time.

Except when they don't, then you just lose more money.

Or call it variance.
