Feel free to tell me I'm chancing my arm and to pay $$$ for coaching or whatever obv
Here goes this example, I'll PM it to you as well

HH:

[converted_hand][hand_history]Poker Stars, $28.83 Buy-in (15/30 blinds, 3 ante) No Limit Hold'em Tournament, 6 Players
Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite. View Hand #11557232

SB: 1,062 (35.4 bb)
BB: 468 (15.6 bb)
UTG: 22 (0.7 bb)
MP: 500 (16.7 bb)
CO: 505 (16.8 bb)
Hero (BTN): 443 (14.8 bb)

Preflop: Hero is BTN with J A
3 folds,






Now on the following 3 screenshots, notice that the calling range for the SB is 12.7% on all 3 and the calling range for the BB is 14.3% on all 3. Also notice that Nash is 33.3%, Icmizer is 33.6% and then Wiz is LOL 47.5%. It goes up to 53% if you take away the positive edge set in wiz as well

Yeah sngwiz is pretty bad purely because of the way it ranks hands. It hates SC and will shove A2o before 98s and also 22s which is funny.
I'm surprised they haven't addressed the rigidness of there range ranking but apparently it is really complicated to do. Although PT4s equity calc allows you to edit the ranking of hands so surely not that hard.

Surely if icmizer has worked out that you need to edit players ranges i'm not sure why sngwiz hasn't cottoned on :s they are meant to be the market leaders!

Lazy imo

Re: 10,000th Post: SNE 2012, Jdawg91 Style (+ more!)

Yes I am going for sne if I can learn the format to my standards. Right now I am breakeven after rakeback when 24 tabling. But I would like to 24 table which amounts to 1.0 decisions per second. Hopefully by late february I will know the format inside and out; currently I am trying to study more than I play, in particular studying for speed (I need to not only know the answers, but know them within 1.0 seconds -- my reaction time is 0.25 seconds and it takes me about 0.4 seconds to register all the stacks behind me in 2-4 handed spots, which leaves me about 0.35 seconds to decide)

Obviously if I do not improve I will not try for SNE as I wont make any money, but for me failing isn't an option so it is very likely I make SNE or even 2x SNE (as 24 tabling it can be done in under 2300 hrs) but I don't want to say for sure because the format is very hard to learn and the game is very heavily raked, and playing 12 tables is completely different from 24 tabling and the latter is just way harder. In fact, my ultimate goal is to eventually 30 table them, but of course one step at a time since I am trying to learn how to play in a way such that my 24 tabling game equals my 6 tabling game and this is still v difficult.

Edit: How are the hypers? Well prerakeback 24% comes off the table so once you have 3+ regs sitting it is v hard to make money since the other players have to start losing bigtime. I say they are difficult and definitely it is easier to make more money at MTTs. I only play this because I want SNE and I like being able to stop/start sessions at will.

Gl with your grind Alex, I can't handle 24 tabling the hypers, have quit trying . I'm sure we'll be seeing lots of each other

Quick update, didn't really play much today as there was NFL on and it's the day before my prop starts so wasn't actually planning on putting in a lot of volume.

Planning on putting in 12+ hours on Sunday, but it might get a bit ****ed up as I'm not tired right now and my plan was to be asleep by now and then wake up at 3am to start....so we'll see how it goes.

Day 7
Starting VPP count: 12,569.60
VPPs accrued: 1610.46
New VPP count: 14,180.06
1mil Pace (@300 days played): 23,333.31
Pre RB profit: $223.92
YTD profit (All "RB"+table profit): $1461.18
Hrs: 22.5
Hourly:$64.94

No, it includes the following

-Stellar Rewards I've unlocked
-How much my FPP's are currently worth at $0.016 ($4k bonus)
-It will also include Milestones as I unlock them (....in case I don't hit SNE), BoP bonuses as I hit them, depo bonuses if they happen, etc etc

Nothing is included based on me hitting 1mil vpps, the only assumption is that at some point this yr I'll have enough fpp's to unlock a $4k bonus as I calc my Fpp count at $0.016

hey.. do you think the SuperTurbo micro-stakes 6max SNGs on Merge are still profitable ? Like for instance the Bumblebee (0.10+0.01)or the rake is too high?

Re: 10,000th Post: SNE 2012, Jdawg91 Style (+ more!)

Will get to ^^ later, just gotta rant quick


edit: obv if you have any suggestions on how to fix this, plz post/pm me.


God ****ing forbid my software working properly on the first day of a prop...obviously that glitch or w/e I was having trouble with before came back today, has happened twice so far and each time I have to stop loading, run my games out, exit the client, exit TN, and restart said programs otherwise every single table will pop up incorrectly so that HEM doesnt read the table (no HUD/doesnt catch HH's) and TN doesn't work (hotkeys don't work, doesnt show the # of bbs, instead says "NaN")

Sooooo ****ing tilting

In below image, top left corner u see that the table is fine, the HUD is showing, TN is showing the # of bbs i have, etc. The top right table is a random MTT, once again, the table is fine. Bottom left, glitched out table

That does not sound fun. No ideas for you, but it looks weird how on that particular window the title bar has no tournament description -- only the blinds, tournament number, and screen name. Maybe that's an issue on Stars' end?

Which setup do you use tile cascade or stack?
Do you use any specific mouse like gaming mouse or a normal mouse?

Yea I'm like 99% sure it's not TN/HEM that is causing this as these programs continue to work properly on the non glitched out tables just fine.

That is the problem as well (the title bar), I think this leads to TN and HEM not being able to read it and therefore my software doesn't work on those tables. And it'd be okay if it was just like a random 1 table that popped up like that and then they continued to load fine but thats not what happens...instead when that first table is glitched out, every single table that pops up after it will also be glitched out

I guess if it happens again ill just have to dump PS and reDL it

HEM you can probably fix using the "table finder" - should only take a few seconds to identify the correct tourney ID manually

Sounds right. Hit up PS tech support; they've likely seen it before.
