Yea I haven't had it happen again in the last 4 months at all, was weird how it was happening very often for a while then just disappeared.

Thx man, reading stuff like this keeps me wanting to post even though lately my updates have been lame!

I think a lot of why I didn't mind moving out of the country is that I had already lived across the country in Vegas when I was 19 and was doing fine (besides sucking at poker/not making much money), and the other big reason would be that I just plain don't like the area that I'm from; since I didn't to college I didn't make any new friends and most of my HS friends went off to college so I became a loner; like even now I only have 2 friends who I consider close and even now, I'm not very good about keeping in contact with them being in Mexico (GB, I know u read my blog so sorry for not skyping u more often :P).

Anyway, enough rambling by me, glgl if you're grinding on merge/bovada/other!

_________________________________________

Well today was a fairly tilting day, woke up at 7am and was on the grind at 7:15 am for the $265 KO like I wanted to be, but then snap noticed I was getting 30second-1 minute disconnections every 6-8minutes so I messaged a few other people who live here at Calafia and everyone was having the same problem. Ended up restarting my modem and that did nothing, so I quit loading (was getting raped anyway) and ran my games out and then headed over to Rusemandingo's place to continue my session. Was definitely a good time grinding over there, and am thankful I had somewhere I could go to keep playing.

Unfortunately, didn't do that well on the tables today. Had a lot of chances but ran bad when it counted; got 9th in the $27 20k TKO and then came into the FT of the $27.50 big antes 1/9 and somehow busted in 9th lol; was pretty failworthy and was disappointed in my bust hand in that tournament.

Felt good with how I played, I've been telling myself I needed to back off early game as I felt I was getting into a lot of unnecessary spots pre antes and was just punting off money, today I felt much better with my early game; it's a weird thing coming from 6m hyper turbos where the aggression is so volatile and then moving over to MTT's where early game, a lot of guys just simply have it nearly every time when they are 3+bing and playing back postflop.

Anyway, I still haven't gone through all the MTT hands I marked the last 6 or so days, I plan on doing that Thursday either before my maid gets here or after she leaves. Will probably end up playing a short session thursday evening as im going to do errands with Ruse while the maid is working, and Friday I'm not sure how much volume (if any) I'll be getting as Simplicity8 and Greg (idr his sn :P) will be arriving in Rosarito; not sure still if I'm picking them up in San Diego or if they're going to use the driving service I use to bring them right to Calafia, no matter which, will be good to see Simp again. Last time I saw him IRL was the night before BF happened when myself, Larry and another roommate met up with him at Margaritaville in Vegas; little did we know the very next day our lives would change dramatically.

Poker is never a straight line up. Glad to hear your confidence is good. Keep your head up and play a solid game. The cards can take care of themselves.

Ya completely different from me. I am in school currently, like the area that I am from, and still hang out with my friends from high school all the time when I am home. And I just have not matured to the level that it sounds like you have. I am gonna start taking poker more seriously now to try and at least make a side income thru school, so maybe this will help me grow up a bit lol

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

Well been on a pretty nasty run since the 15th of last month, just not running that well deep in tournaments. Very pleased with how I've been playing lately and also pleased with how im dealing with this bad run, def good stuff imo.

Got 39th in the 109r turbo SCOOP after losing AK To JJ for 4/40, made a deep run in the $265 KO before my JJ lost to TupacMN's awful 4b pile with K9o, obv he got there for heaps with 100 left. Have had numerous numerous deep runs, just can't finish it off.

RL has been alright, done a decent amount of degening it up in TJ with Ruse, sucks that my partner in crime is leaving to go back to the US on monday .

Other than that, haven't really been doing much, Simplicity8 and 1 of his roommates from Canada moved down to Rosarito 2 weeks ago, stayed with me for ~1 week while lining up their house; they have a super sick beach house. And during SCOOP, Hoodskier is staying with myself and L@P, been a pretty fun time getting to meet him and put another face with a screenname

Here's to a good Sunday, both myself and Hoodskier have been running very poorly the last ~1000 mtts we've played, time to bink a SCOOP imo!


Just want to share 1 funny HH from the ft of the ongame 108, this right here has been how the past 3.5 weeks has gone.


-Button super spewy 3ber so i decide to flat the first time figuring he'd squeeze and i could backraise shove, he somehow decides 3b/c with 97s is a good idea and obv gets there for the overall CL


    On Game, $100 Buy-in (1,250/2,500 blinds, 250 ante) No Limit Hold'em Tournament, 9 Players

    Alright off for the night, very very very tired so hopefully my writing actually makes sense, not double checking it and exhausted, so inb4 jibberish.

    Ouch, MTTs are so absurd. If I didn't grind cash as my main game along with MTTs I would have gone insane a long time ago from the swings. Props on the good mental game.

    As far as the 97s hands... he knows he's got live cards so pot odds obv!!!

    GL in the SCOOP!

    sounds like some sick variance, hang in there.

    I posted some stuff that has been going on lately with my life in my thread in the beginners forum. Would love your input/advice if you have the time and have anything to say.

    Gross downswing man . I don't know how you do MTTs day in and day out. I'm on like day 2 of just mixing them in and I'm already thinking of dropping the higher buyins to reduce variance.

    Thanks again for letting us chill at your house while we were getting set up. We definitely owe you one!
