you obv are aware that this is money game and you need to earn as much money as you can, NO ONE IN THE REAL WORLD DOESNT CARE HOW GOOD POKER PLAYER YOU ARE AND WHAT STUPID MTT HAVE YOU WON
When you stop playing full time, after like 2 years of not playing online, no one will remember you, what you win etc... because there will be new kids on the block

THE THINGS THAT MATTERS are what you do with the opportunity you have. You have great opportunity to make as much money as you can from pokers and then invest them in something that will help real people, smth like romeopro is doing or smth similar.
If money really doesnt matter for you you can just make some real goal to help XYZ people, like for ex goal to earn X amount of money so you can buy some house/place and make public free kitchen for homeless, where you for ex. provide food and they cook it and serve it etc, also you can make some clases there where people that cant afort education can learn to do some stuff (like some art, some carpentry stuff etc idk english terms but you get my pont) and get paid for that and reinvest and rebuild their life so they dont need help any more and they now can help other people, SO THAT WILL BE YOUR MOTIVATION => TO EARN AS MUCH MONEY AS YOU CAN, SO YOU CAN HELP AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN AND IMPROVE THEIR LIFE AND MAKE EARTH BETTER PLACE

We all have our struggles and we all are fighting our fight (i dont want to make it this tl/dr and tell you my story about my country and people in it... maybe some other time), all bad beats, suckouts hurt, but at the end of the day we should be happy and grateful that we have roof over our head, clear water to drink, food etc (that we take for granted when there are a lot of people on earth that have problems with this stuff) and we are losing and wining daily amounts of money that some people (like more then 70% imo of the earth population) cant save it in whole life (for ex i dont have a friend in my country that i can borrow 5k eur and like give them back after like 2 years or smth like that... 5keur is a lot of money in my country)

It is never like you must play this MTT if you dont play people wont appreciate you, that you need to make bets for last longer, most cashes etc etc for motivation and because all the cool guys do that => if that is putting extra pressure on you is just wrong thing to do imo, dont forget we are in this game to have fun and to make easy money (by easy i mean that you play when you want/fell like it, not like every day job). most players decide to play MTTs for glory (ego) and is just absurd how running bad in MTTs make you feel (even when your have great month $$$)

i just want to say this last thing,
YOU DONT NEED TO PROVE NOTHING TO NO ONE, **** ALL OF THEM, I THINK EVERY GOOD ONLINE/LIVE MTT PLAYER KNOWS YOU AND HAVE BIG RESPECT FOR YOUR GAME YOUR SKILL ETC https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WARVM8dtOkk#t=1m20s i understand that you had invest so much of your time, resources,etc you give up a lot of things to be as good as you are, but you are not getting results you think you "deserve" (not all of us can run like you friend Fedor) and you feel disappointed, but the truth is your results are great way above avg and you are running a very successful stable and that is something to be proud of

its late and i need to sleep, hope you read this and that i help you a little bit to see things from different perspective


P.S. not to forget, here is one motivation video for you https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWvcwVWCcnYhttp://

gl at the rest of the wcoop and life in general, have fun, you are one of the good guys imo
<3

I think I shed a tear while reading this, very inspirational.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Btw the whole "horse" thing just is what it is. I never thought ie as a problem and don't see them as just money making Machines. We go on holiday with these guys, when we take vacation we take it with them. When we want to speak about something deep we speak it with them, if they have a problem they speak about it with us were a really tight knit community.

Huge shoutout for example to Patrick "bigdog09" Brooks. I started stsking him by myself years ago, he has had some really hard times being hit with bad variance. I think he's as solid as any guy I stake, really great fundamentals, fantastic work ethic, great volume, always at every coaching. He mentors a lot of our less experienced players. He had two huge scores this month inclusion a 2nd in the WCOOP shootout. I seriously have no idea how much money he made, he could have won 30k or 80k, literally have no idea, I sweated the whole final table and didn't open the lobby once, it didn't matter, just watching him crush this final table and play so great was such a great thing to see. Same with Gil who has a blog here, I know he's done amazing this series by can't remember how much he made but I remember very well the times he played and how emotionally involved I was watching him and wanting him to do well.

At the end of the month I'll post an update from bitB during a WCOOP. Of course it's going to look good as we did great, but and I know this sounds stupid but the money really almost doesn't matter at all. We just want the guys who we get to know do well. It's a very strange situation actually, maybe I have a bad mindset towards it I'm not sure.

But they are all very far from "horses" and in fact if we feel like that's all somebody is we drop them pretty quickly as a key ingredient to success with our business model is their interaction in the community and their willingness to get involved.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

I knew if someone was going to bluff this spot, it was you lol . Hitvil should just fold everything with vick still to act, and vick never has 33/44/99 on the flop and you have all of them + all the 2pairs combos, but wonder what you think he had with that stack left behind?

Poker Stars $200+$15 No Limit Hold'em Tournament - t300000/t600000 Blinds + t75000 - 8 players
DeucesCracked Poker Videos Hand History Converter

mighty28 (UTG+1): t63147234 M = 42.10
paleta25 (MP1): t24371664 M = 16.25
SwalzB (MP2): t19937058 M = 13.29
vick23789 (CO): t12306863 M = 8.20
MrSweets28 (BTN): t14185540 M = 9.46
RescueGrp (SB): t12401866 M = 8.27
pads1161 (BB): t30255725 M = 20.17
Hitvil (UTG): t16714050 M = 11.14

Pre Flop: (t1500000)
Hitvil raises to t1375000, 3 folds, vick23789 calls t1375000, 2 folds, pads1161 calls t775000

Flop: (t5025000) 9 3 4 (3 players)
pads1161 checks, Hitvil bets t1800000, vick23789 raises to t3600000, pads1161 raises to t5400000, Hitvil folds, vick23789 calls t1800000

Turn: (t17625000) 4 (2 players)
pads1161 bets t11984999, vick23789 folds

Final Pot: t17625000
pads1161 shows T A (a pair of Fours)
pads1161 wins t17625000

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

4th for $90k, flipped vs Galfond for huge stack bob KQdd vs A2o and despite the 982ddx flop we didnt win Was two fish left so would have been in great spot, sure Galfond will win now.

Amazingly happy with WCOOP, results and performance, gave it my all.

Will do full write up tomorrow.

its close, he should shove:



i should call:



0.53 is really really huge edge, sure he may not jam that range (although he was jamming really really wide v often and i raised his 1 limp) but also he wont play top of his range that dominates me.

I think its a call and even if it wasn't exactly a mathematical call (i think it is) fgs makes it pretty sure call.


But can see why it looks close at first
