Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

I just think the aspects/themes of TD2 don't match up with those that were popular with a lot of fans in TD1. e.g. The whole Yellow King seemed more mythological/magical vs. a more earthly sex cult. Or the whole bromance between Rust and Marty was a big draw for most people too vs. the more disparate/antagonistic characters this season.

In a vacuum, I can definitely see how someone who's into different categories or aspects of TV shows would like TD2. But pretty much everything I liked about TD1 isn't in TD2 so based on those expectations, it's a huge letdown for me.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

i remember this same disappointment when the wire came out with season2 (and in the end, season 2 was better than season1, 4 > 3 > 2 > 1 > 5 IMO), but that was a big leap to make without further development of the show. give true detective time to tell their story and i'm sure season 2 will be more appealing to people when it's put in the context of the overall show, and not just compared to people's expectations from season1. the writers/cast are very good, don't count them out

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Just catching up on the thread, been on vacay in Greece. Awesome read btw. Can you give us examples of the following? What are you studying? You run what hands against what range using what software. Would be nice to see how a top player thinks and learns.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Last week or so has been pretty busy. Decided to move in to a house where I'll rent the spare room out to different grinders over the year. First up is my French friend Ben that I've knkwn for years and is a great guy. He will live for a couple of months, especially nice as WCOOP is on and will be fun to grind with somebody. I trust him and he's a good guy so nice person to live with. Will try to move different people in over the year perhaps, let's see how it goes.

Anyway the place is great and in an amazing location. I agree a deal where we get a discount if I lay all the rent in advance and 2 mknths deposit. So fix 20k+$ cash in hand. Couple days later he tells us no more flat for us and I swear I haven't been as tilted in years haha, it was so infuriating. Everywhere I looked i would compare to this place and nowhere was as nice. Eventually after many emails (I told Ingrid to email him and tell him I'm a dangerous guy haha - I don't think she actually did but who knows) he messaged me saying we could have it again. So finally that's fixed.

Online poker has been decent. Stable been doing Amazon, big shout out to jonaj10, I think he's not only the best mid stakes Reg on stars right now but I'd say he's a top top reg no matter what. He came 3rd in 109r for 25k and had lots and lots of amazing runs.

Today for our coaching session the guys took the day off and I played 6 tables maximum for the entire session with live commentary. It went really good and although it's tough at times doing both I think I played great. I ended up winning the Fat Tuesday for 15k which is a really tough $500 on full tilt. Made a big big call with bottom pair and a good river call with ten high and was really happy with winning this MTT.

So we now have 6 hours of live footage. No idea if I'll sell it or not, I kinda bad mouth a couple of regs because it was just between my horses and I so would feel bad about that being in the public eye, but I think it would be a great series for somebody to buy. Will do more of these over WCOOP. I've decided I'll never play more than 8 tables anymore, if anybody sees me playing more than 8 tables between now and WCOOP, ill give you $100 free roll just post the screen shot in here

Really happy to have this great momentum after Vegas. It's tough to get back in online grind in summer after a tiring Vegas but I've been putting in 30-40 hour weeks playing and 15-20 hours studying and I'm loving it. It's pretty cringe looking back 6 months ago when I thought I was good but was clearly bad. Hopefully I think the same thing again in 6 months

Im selling for the 50k WCOOP and pretty fkn excited about it. Will sell heaps obviously but I think it's a great MTT for me to play.

True detective 2 finished this Sunday. Was kinda meh finish I thought, but I really enjoyed the series.

Sziget festival is on right now which is huge here. Going to try and go on Thursday or Friday. Should be fun.

Not long till Barcelona now, if you read this blog and would like to get a beer there just post here or lmk or something, always like meeting new people from here.

I'll be at the EPT for the whole 2 weeks so I'd definitely like to drop by

Also, regarding the footage, it would be great if you put it on sale. I'd definitely take it unless it's overpriced :P
Also, regarding the fact that there's some badmouthing in it that can offend some regs, you shouldn't really worry too much about it. The regs themselves should take it as a learning experience. Being successful never means all we do is right

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

I thought the same about True Detective 2. Great show overall but dissapointing end IMO. I though that did not make a lot of sense that Ray scaped to the forest, is one of the last places that i will try to go if Police is behind me...why not going to a crowded place like a shopping mall?
A part from that I am a romantic and would like to see a better end .)

PD: First message in 2plus2 altough I been following this blog since like 6 months ago and I can understand why you say you re much better player now...but the way you said that it kind of feels like you were clicking bottons back then and I dont think is accurate...

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

I really do think poker is about the people you surround yourself with. Tiny things add up, how your friends prepare for sessions, how they do post session stuff before they sleep, how they deal with mental issues, why they take which days off. All this stuff if somebody is telling you it may seem like really basic stuff but sometimes you just need somebody to prompt you.

It's kind of weird because ive never really been in a uk social circle in regards to poker, always seem to gravitate towards young skandis who are a few years younger than me. Not sure exactly why that is haha.

One of the guys who had a big influence on me was imfromsweden that's when I think I really accelerated in poker. He was basically a young crazy skandi that loved to make people try to fold and we spoke often abit different exploitative lines.

I was thinking a lot about studying and how important (or what I've perhaps analaysed is not actually that important at all) I'm going onto Elliot Roes podcast tonight and will be speaking about that and lots of different issues.

Will post link here once it's up.

I did this podcast with Elliot last week. Probably starts a little slow but gets more natural as we get going abit more. I come on after 2-3 minutes.
