Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Busted in 14th for $42,000. Defended BB with A8Q2ddxx 3 way and potted 832dxx and got it in vs 3456 and was drawing super thin by the turn. Felt completely fine afterwards, had no expectations and was actually happy to get the couple of ladders that I got as I was short.

People asking about the stuff from day 1, was pretty hesitant, but wte. kinda oi now.

I know I've said previously that in every tournament I play I feel like I'm in the top 10 players in the room, but I think I'm pretty classy about it, I would say confident rather than arrogant and I try to be as classy as possible at the tables. In this tournament, I obviously knew I was nowhere near the best 10 players in the room. I got off to a great start though, got unto 100k very early. I think I played pretty good, but not going to go into any real strategy, besides I can't really remember and I think with PLO you need to be suit specific etc or theres not much point.

My table breaks and I have 70k, but feeling fine still. The table is pretty OK, very weak player to my right, but he was a really nice guy from South Africa. I noticed that he completed the nuts three times on the river and checked, but led out twice as a bluff when he could represent something. When he bluffed on a flop previously he made it 22500 vs Stealthmunks 7500 but when he value bet he always bet 20k or 25k or 15k etc.

Jared Bleznick soon joins the table. I don't know anything about him except for the fact he's supposed to be very, very, very good at PLO and is rumoured to be the biggest multiaccounter of all time. He comes over as his table breaks (the other players just behind him taking their seats at other tables (smaller field, everybody close together) "OMG I just had the nut table, I offered the floor $30,000 to not break the table but he wouldn't take it. None of those players could beat 2 cent PLO online." One of the guys looks over from the table behind and I cringe.


South African guy limps for 800 utg and I 3bet AQJA double suited. 4 people call including the South African guy. The flop comes Q54ssx I decide to check and we all check. The turn is Q54J and the South African bets 5000. I decide to raise for value to 15000 (within 5-6 seconds) and he calls. The river is Q54JT and he starts counting out chips, pulls 3 5k chips in and then adds 2 yellows at the last second before he bets. I start to run the hand through my head and take around 40 seconds and call. He tells me I'm good and he "tried to buy it" and shows 4468 for bottom set turned into a bluff. Jared starts laughing and says something out loud like "Where the hell do these guys get $10,000 from" Stealthmunk starts laughing and yesterday actually tweeted it.

stealthmunk ‏@stealthmunk 14h14 hours ago
"How do these people find 10,000$ to play?"-Almighty ambassador @harrington25 Seriously though I think that every year in 10k plo. #0chips

stealthmunk ‏@stealthmunk 16m16 minutes ago
Doubt I wanna sell any after seeing some of the HH of the 10k PLO. It was a complete horror show.

I don't really think much of it, I know they don't like my call, but idgaf really, I have 2 big blockers and a very good read the guy was bluffing. He was bluffing but just with the best hand. He was also very likely to raise hands like AKxx and way more likely to limp/call the smaller run downs etc from the hands he'd shown down and because there was so many of the missed draws and I had all reverse blockers it seemed like a good hand to call with.

Very next hand I raise UTG, we go 3 way with the South African and Norweigan. We get to the river on KJ62K and the Norweigan leads the river really big basically for my whole stack. I've gone from 100 to 30 before this hand and he's bet 16k on the river (8 in each before + some from South African) and I have j897. I take around 30 seconds and Jared shouts out really loud about how he's going to call the clock on me every single time I'm in a hand. I was like wtf. I play very, very fast normally, never ever fake tank. I have a really tough decision here. I ended up calling and being good and he told me again he would call the clock on me every single time. I told him it was for my whole tournament and I just made a very, very thin call and took less than 90 seconds can he please show some class.

He is really going at me, intimidating me and pulling friends over form other tables to tell them how bad the fish and I are playing. He raises (he has 220k, average is 45k, nobody else on more than 120 on the table) South African calls (he has 100% vpip I think) and I have AA83 on the button. I take 5 seconds and then both he and Stealthmunk start going crazy. Literally I took 5 seconds. They are shouting that its ridiculous, I'm completely in shock at this point, nobody has ever had a go at me for slow playing. I have had the clock called on me before like anybody else but never have people personally told me they think I'm strategically slow playing. I'm like wuuuuww wtf. I end up calling pretty rushed and then Stealthmunk in the BB starts pretending to hollywood and tells the dealer he will pretend to hollywood like he may squeeze so everybody thinks he's stronger. I'm like is this really happening lol, its a $10k. Anyway we get to the flop, Stealthmunk gives another stupid speech and then bets, I fold and show my AA rag rag just to try and get them to leave off me.

After this hand Stealthmunk and Jared are begging the floor not to break this table for the rest of the day.

Guy on my left and Stealthmunk both bust and Jareds friend replaces the guy on my direct left. Jared tells him "omg dude you have the best seat in the whole tournament, amazing" I've literally played very tight all around this because I'm so uncomfortable and took 45seconds to 1minute to make a super hard call for all my chips. I'm thinking wtf is he talking about lol. Fish whispers to me how uncomfortable it all is and I tell him I feel the same.

He then bets 3k on A8Q24 with AT55 and Jared raises to 25k. He hero calls him and Jared has A9xx lol, after the hand he says something like "I'm not sure if you're the best player in the world or just horrific" Then after he finishes his sentence he says something like "obviously horrific" or something like that, can't remember exactly.

He is talking non stop, very aggressively, rudely, intimidatingly and I'm texting my friends instantly exactly what he's saying and they are like wtf. I ask them should I stay classy or be aggro back. They say stay classy but maybe try to slow roll. He keeps going and I say something like "I'm not going to get into an argument with you, I took 45 seconds to call in a 3x average pot with 2nd pair on a paired board, I prefer to stay quiet and play poker, we all know that you have no morals and choose to multi account" he instantly said something like "wtf did you just accuse me of" in a really aggressive way, I was like oh **** he doesn't take this stuff well? Stealhmunk snap says "did he just accuse you of multi accounting" Jared shouts over to this guy a few tables away who looks really aggro lol and is like "this kid is accusing me of multi accounting" the whole room is looking over and I just back track to try and avoid the confrontation.

Eventually he bluffs away his whole stack and is left with 60k. I end up stacking him with him getting it in pretty bad and I'm so so so so happy. I stand up, take a picture of him with his hand on his head stood up and his chips being passed over to me and snap make it my Facebook profile picture.

He still has some chips and is still around for another 45 minutes grinding 1-8bbs. Connor Drinan then comes over, potentially slightly intoxicated and goes to shake his hand. He is reluctant at first and asks why and Connor says "You're a legend, I just wanna shake your hand" he shakes his hand and then Connor tells him he's a scumbag and he shouldn't feel comfortable playing live poker" He walks away and Jared is quiet as a mouse, he says something like "no idea who that guy is, I've probably just beat him for a lot of money" Shaun Deeb is at the table and is a total legend. He isn't rude, he is just completely honest and tells Jared exactly what the community thinks of him. They argue back and forth (have some good videos :P) I'm completely quiet throughout and don't say a word or get involved although I was tempted. His friend then comes over and is like, wtf happened to your stack bro. He looks at me and says "that ****ing idiot got them" I was like how the **** can this guy be so, so classless.

Connor comes back again hilariously giving some more **** to Jared and I had 170k with 10 hands left of the day and feeling good. Jared looks at me and says (with 3000 chips) "You know what the funny thing is, we are probably even money even at these stack sizes" I ask him if he's just a gob****e looking for arguments or really believes it, he promises me he believes it and I tell him then obviously we should bet. He arrogantly agrees to bet with me then starts saying he can't trust me to pay and needs a vouch.

Eventually he busts, asks for a private escort out the building from security and I finish the day with a nice stack going into day 2.

I can't really write everything how it was, probably seems like nothing, but when playing my biggest buy in of the summer, in a game I'm not 10000% confident in it really effected me. He was going over to friends, pointing and laughing at me and the fish. If anything it perhaps did me a favour, I just played very tight, almost embarrassed to try and do anything out of line at all. He had a very aggressive, intimidating demeanour and manner. I'm not sure if he has something wrong with him, he at times came across as funny, witty and intelligent. He's obviously very, very good at poker and way better than me at PLO, I would pay a lot of money to be able to think about PLO in the same way as he does, but I would rather have $0 to my name than act as classless as he did.

As far as Stealthmunk goes, I've loved following him on twitter, he comes across as troubled but incredibly funny. I was kinda shocked to see him take the side of Bleznick here and giving those personal stuff to me when I'm sat 2 seats away from him.

I feel happy about everything now though, he reassures me that I'm actually a good guy, I think I played very good in this PLO tournament but also realise I have a lot to learn. My third deep run this year in the WSOP, sad to come 13/20/35 in the three events but going deep is the important thing, can't control the variance of 50-50s or 80-20s deep in these birds.


Going to take a few days off now I think, mayyyyy play the $1500 tomorrow, undecided for now. I did decide to skip One Drop altogether though, just was tired from PLO and hadn't prepared for it etc.

All about the main event now...

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Obviously dude is a douch but op reading your posts you seem to have a lot of insecurity issues you need to deal with. For example texting your friends and asking them if you should stay classy or be rude back like wtf you need people to tell you how to act? I dunno that part just stood out to me now but you've touched on this in previous posts with looking people in the eye. Do you think you may have some type of social anxiety disorder?

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

This guy sounds like a real gem. Some people just need a hi-five. In the face. With a chair.

Also, really excited that I can now hop in this thread for some light poker reading as well as unsolicited medical advice so that's a plus. Thanks trade2win for that insight, dont quit your day job.

No idea how you went from "I hate variance (in a low variance game) and big buyins and might leave vegas" to "I'm gonna reg the 10k PLO" but I'm glad it worked out hahaha.

It really is a shame that no one put a stop to this.

Theres another thread on 2p2 atm with 100s of pages where people are losing their mind over what Brian Hastings did with respect to multiaccounting. One one of the issues being raised is the fact that that type of **** gets poker players their shady stereotype and hurts the game. While I'm not advocating that sort of behavior or nominating Hastings for sainthood it really saddens me to hear **** like this story. It seems like it pretty much ruined your day (and you're an actual poker pro with some belief in your own game and some familiarity with other players in the room). Imagine this poor fish flying in from wherever, totally alone (or with a couple friends who are elsewhere) in vegas being treated like thi (where you're sure already certain you're one of the worst in the room). I think it's pretty clear that behavior like this is going to hurt poker way more than the stuff Hastings is doing. Admittedly anything that increases peoples likelihood of losing money is going to provide an incentive to stay away from the game. That being said, most guys gambling at these levels are less concerned about the money than they are about having a good time. Honestly, I'd have been tempted to call the floor over and try to get the guy a penalty or removed from the room or w/e.

There's a clip from a while ago that came to mind when readnig this that I'm sure you've all seen. It's the hand where PH 3bs AK or AQ vs some fish who calls like T7o who then proceeds to bluff him. Mattusow then tells the guy to show the bluff which he promptly does. This sets off Hellmuth who goes on a 3 minute rant calling the man a moron and an idiot or w/e. Eventually the guy has had enough and just starts giving it back at which point the floor intervenes. It would be nice to be able to call the floor to police people's behavior to some degree. I'm not saying we all need to behave like were at a funeral and obviously showing some frustration is going to be part of the game but at a certain point you cross the line and enter the realm of indecency. I read a twitter today where Kyle Julius received a 1 round penalty for exposing his AA when he thought he had called all in (but in actuality the guy had only shoved like 97% of his stack or something). Surely if we can punish that type of accidental error we can invoke some rule to stop people from being complete ****s.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

I have a good friend who was backed by Blanco, and only said great things about him, and it is rare to find good ppl in poker...its pretty filthy and disgusting tbh at times...once you step back from it or do something else for awhile, you really can see it even clearer than before

Can't believe he really felt 3K was even money though against you and your stack, like, wth?

He's obviously very autistic

He might have the strategy part of the game down pretty well, but certainly isnt maximising his poker EV in other senses

No...there is no doubt he is autistic, and likely has Asperger's, which would explain why he is so intelligent, but would not know how to just be quiet at the table, or talk about sports or something...why would he talk about poker, wth?

However, the video made me laugh, as bad as I feel about laughing when I really think he likely is autistic or something, and there is truly nothing wrong with that...makes more sense that he has his rants I guess...yeah, now I feel like a POS for laughing at the video...
