Any time I get down about poker I remember that the regs at my casino who think they are 'outplaying me' by calling me with atc payed for my very expensive education.
Then I smile and say nice hand.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

It seems pretty straightforward. Regs payed for his education by calling too much since he raises too much. This was, in fact, a bad adjustment. When he feels bad about poker, he remembers this fact.

Reread it for the 5th time and now it is completely clear. Not sure what the heck was going on in my head the first 4 times.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

Anyone have a rough idea on kind of Std Dev per 100 hands would be for a typical reg in a deep stacked NHLE 1/2 live cash game that frequently has straddles of 4, less frequently 4+8 and every now and then 4+8+16? I'm thinking 150-200bb/100 but I don't know.

If you think that a casino poker room is an "energy suck," then I would say that you're out of touch with reality. Poker rooms are places that are filled with people who WANT TO BE THERE. It's recreation for 99% of the players, and most of them would choose to spend their Saturday in the poker room versus looking at fish.

My last real job was ten years ago, when I was working in an industrial WAREHOUSE. And prior to that, I worked in state government, in a cubicle, surrounded by lots of other cubicles. Talk about energy suck! In fact, every real job I've ever had has been a tremendous energy suck. One of the things I love about live poker is the socialization that you just can't get at most real jobs. Like you, Squid Face, I've been a live grinder for a long time now, and when I'm running bad, I hate the game, hate the poker room, and I especially hate the luckboxes who keep sucking out on me. But then I remind myself to think rationally. Were it not for variance, then we wouldn't be able to do what we do. We MUST lose if we want to win, and the better we get at losing, the better off we'll be.

Poker rooms are filled with some of the most disgusting degenerate people that absolutely hate life and want everyone to know how badly they hate life. To call it an energy suck is an understatement.

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

its an energy suck cuz people want to win...yet most dont. There is some serious cognitive dissonance happenin. The venom people spew when they feel they unjustifiably lose is mind numbing. If you dont see the energy suck in that then u r outta touch with reality.

I have been preaching for as long as I can remember that you need energy balance to deal with the daily drain of the casino environment. When I say energy balance I mean seriously positive things in your life to deal with the negativity that is in a casino environment

re: Winrates, bankrolls, and finances

I find that playing shorter sessions (but still shooting for max hours) is a good way to counteract the energy suck.

Those 10+ hr sessions can be miserable at times depending on the table.

Agree that most tables there's this fake sense of camraderie where everyone appears to be having fun, but most are genuinely unhappy (including pros).

This is just representative of society. Agree that casino attracts the low of the low but I think the reason why we feel it more is because its just so unavoidable and in our face in the casino environment

With that very expensive education, I would've thought you would know how to spell "paid"

I don't know the kind of people you deal with on a daily basis but my life outside of the poker doesn't include people that are constantly complaining about things.

People making such comparison usually won't make it in poker.

If you're alternatives are working a $10-12/hr job, chances are the variance will eat you alive.

If your alternative is working a min wage job, you're 21+, and you don't think you'll advance in said job, you many want to reevaluate your life choices

In every real job I've ever had, there are a lot more people around me that are the kind of people I want to talk to, compared to the poker table.

People I don't meet at my day job:

Loud stupid attention seeking drunk who is slowing up the game? Check

Tilting muscular heavily tattooed yob who is just simmering with barely contained violence, thereby raising everyone's blood pressure in a 10 metre radius? Check

Embittered nit reg and life fish whose misery has reached such a stupendous level that it has now collapsed into a singularity, forming a sort of negative vortex around him? Check

But at my day job I have to pretend to respect people nearly as bad and I don't get any of their money.

Maybe you just have to be a certain kind of misanthrope to enjoy the miserable environment of live poker.
