As hh is only value imo is 22/33/k2s/k3s and QsJx, and some Asx hands that he decide to play like that but as pads reads are that hut flush will take difrent lines on streets looks like his value is very small so guess if u hero calling T5 should be better then TJ/TQ

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Made day 2 of the EPT Highroller with 235k coming back to 2kbb. Field was absolutely incredible. Really big Rois are attainable in this kind of field, very frustrating stars have changed ALL tournaments to 20% pay outs so that players cash a lot and recycle all the money. A horse cashed a 1k event for less than 150e profit! Sad times, no announcement either, they just decided to do it today according to a tournament director.

you seem to make pretty steady money when you grind, have a good life setup in budapest. so i guess im curious what compels you to go out there all summer and fire
maybe it's called getting a life? lol something I need to mimic myself!

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

So busted in 12th today. Pretty sad way to finish but wasn't tilted at all. Last 3 days I played as good as possible and gave myself another chance at a big score. My last 5 live tournaments

12th EPT Barcelona €10k
7th Aria 25k
Busted main event day 2, huge day 1 stack
12th WSOP $5000 event
20th WSOP $10,000 6max

Wont go through each one and post the bad beat story etc but in all four of the deep runs I busted playing chip lead pot in unavoidable situations.

I think I posted this somewhere else recently but I really feel far superior as a live tournament player compared to online. I made a seminar last month for bitB about live play and in general I'm extremely confident. Not in terms of how I carry myself at the table or the way I stare at problem but just a lot of small nuances that I think are pretty difficult to pick up. I really enjoy the whole live tournament stuff even if at times it's very frustrating. I'm not really sure what I strive for, it's not a huge financial score for first place I'm looking for, I'm not even sure if it's a trophy or recognition I'm looking for. I know there's something I'm trying to achieve but right now I'm not sure what that is. Probably doesn't make sense. I guess it could just be I really enjoy meeting the top tier guys I play against for the last 3-4 years Online, talking to them, playing and competing against them. People who know me know I really love playing games, my idea of a fun night isn't going to a club and buying bottles and getting OOL, I'm social, but I'm a bit of a nerd, I'd way prefer to play games or run numbers or find out new things/read/watch documentaries. I think that's why online poker has generally always suited me so well because in between tournaments at live stops I always want to just go back to home and not necessarily play online but put myself back in my familiar surroundings, by myself and do what I like to do.

I have realized a lot over the last 3/4 months how lucky I / we are, I think I took it for granted for a long time but right now I really appreciate what we have going on and that we're not doing X/y/z. Many people say "yeah but we worked hard for it we deserve it" that's not necessarily true I think we're still lucky that we have whatever dna or whatever else to give us the ability to be so driven/focused and motivated. Over the last 1-2 weeks I've kind of gotten the a-ha moment that I really don't want to live in a city anymore. I literally never have the urge to go party anymore and if I do I can just go anywhere in the world on a plane and go party. I think having a chef >>>> eating out all the time in nice restaurants and just in general most major des rainbow cities to live in are pretty much crowded with tourists, lots of traps, lots of people trying to exploit you etc. I would really like to move soon to either the countryside or the seaside and just enjoy the quiet and the calm and the time by myself working online and still traveling a bunch to live stops or wherever else. I guess in January/February is most realistic time for this next big "change"

This tournament in particular I absolutely loved. I just wrote a bunch about what I thought people did good/bad in these tournaments but deleted. Probably not wise and comes across poorly.

In terms of hands in the tournament not much stands out to me. Basically the redraw was pretty hilarious. 2 tables left 8/8. My table is all the top online regs left in the field and the other table is Nick Petrangelo, Dario, Byron and then all the fish. I did pretty well until there was 12 left, I had to play tight because of my table/positions etc but on the other table both Dario and Byron busted. Which was great news for the tournament. I then realized I would be moving to their seat. Pretty great spot. I had 1m, I won 2-3 pot, fish opened, I 3bet bb 3.2x, my read was they really wanted to make the final table with k3o, they folded and I showed for some logical reason. They got pretty tilted, lost half their stack next hand and was visibly tilted. I raised btn, they jammed bb for 15bb I call KJdd and lose to AQ. Next orbit they open mp (they are still tiled) I defend bb 63ss. Flop q72xss check check, turn Q725xsss I bet pot they say "do you even check your cards" then I tell dealer they're folding and let's move onto next hand. They call. River Q7254xsssx I bet 1.5x pot all in, they snap A4ss ://// they tell me "now we're even" and something along the lines of "justice". Smh bust an orbit later A9<88 aip.

Like I said, wasn't tilted at all, really excited about the upcoming tournaments and really hoping to carry on some momentum. Whatever happens results wise in Barcelona it doesn't matter, just want to play well.

Next tournament €2k Estrella's highroller on Sunday.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Hey was nice playing with you today. Wanted to apologize for misleading you in that 5k chip debate. I had thought that he called your 3bet with a 5k chips which is why i said you should have 4 +1. Not sure wjat you jammed but that was a funny speech
