If you have any that you have turned a made hand into a bluff that would be cool and hero calls are always good obvs.

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

HEM2? u just right click the hand ,copy it, paste it here, make the output format 2+2 forums, click convert, convert, copy the new thing, paste it here, rub $$$ on titties.

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

Am I the only one to smell bull crap here? Let's count the ways:

1. Hero wasn't going to post hand histories (for reasonable security reasons) and now is, because the attention was diminishing?

2. Hero can't filter on hands in HEM? Rly?

3. Hero doesn't know how to post a hand to a forum? Rly?

4. Hero is a totally new account, and goes on the world's hottest heater, totally untrackable.

5. Hero cannot cite a single contribution to his strategy outside of "playing".

I don't want to hate, but Ockham's razor says this is all VERY suspicious. I think we've been levelled.

Hi slowjoe,

I am sorry you are lead to believe my thread is bullcrap...

1) a couple now and then will do no harm, especially if they are posted not on the day of playing, but more like a week ago

2) if never used HEM before , then how would i? this knowledge just isn't something you are born with

3) never done it before, so again, how would i know this?

4) no, it's not untrackable actually. i could give my nicknames, all of which are followed on PokerTableRankings (apart from Stars), and all of which seem to have tracked most of my profit (90%+).. but I achieve nothing by giving out my nicks, so why would I? ... Oh to make the thread sound more believable... No. It's not my fault the start of the thread has begun with me beating the 600-5k games for 130k in 3 weeks, sorry, but that's what happens when someone who crushes the games and is on a heater at the same time .

5) Well if i am asked the question, "did you read a book"? And the answer is no, what else can i say? I play the game most days for 4-5 years now, i've railed high stakes games alot (i suppose thats one thing i did do to learn stuff) but no, no books & no forums & no internet pages, just learn by playing...

Maybe i should just out myself to stop the hate & the non believers

it still fails when i put that in here. so i copy the hand from HEM2, i paste it into the section "HAND HISTORY HERE" i then write "2+2 forums in the "OUTPUT" section and click 'convert!'. I then take which bit, the output section or the link to hand, and paste it into the Hand history converter here in this reply..?

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

I don't want to hate, but...

No, that's not what I want to say. What I want to say is, if you are legit, you were probably correct to protect your identity. There's potentially millions riding on it. If you are legitimately a self-taught crushing poker-savant, then great. I just don't think the concept of a brag thread with no brags in it makes a lot of sense (unless it motivates you to grind). In fact, the insane heater actually might speak to your advantage - if you were faking this stuff, you'd probably make it "more epic" and "more real" - heroic recoveries from downswings, that sort of thing.

GL to you either way. I've got no skin in the game, but we've had other people with "epic achievements" and no data to back them up in the past, like the Girah, the PPP. People have already asked for coaching. It's important that the possibility of a fake be mentioned.

U paste it on the left, click convert, then take what appears on the right and paste it here. If u want the results of the hand shown as well u need to click 'show results' before converting.

Re: My journey to becoming a millionaire

I get this message when i copy & paste what appears in 'output' on the link you gave into the hand history converter on here, and i get this message:

Conversion Failed

The hand history pasted contained formatting, spaces or special characters that are non-standard or was for a site or game type that is not supported.

If you use Hold'em Manager, you can select the CASH GAMES or TOURNEY tab and then right click on the specific hand and select "Copy Selected Hands To Clipboard" and then paste.
