Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Kinda frustrating. Just got 12th in suoer Tuesday for 6.5k.. 100k ftw My stats for the tournament were crazy

32/22/16 (vpip/pfr/3bet)
0% fold to cbet 18 occurrences!!!!

It was such an emotionally roller coaster tournament. I was so happy playing this style and really controlling every table from the start but my bust out is probably a little more than questionable.

I defend bb vs hijac and Btn mr+call with 65

Flop 865

I lead 12 into 50, both call

Turn 8654

I lead 25 into 75, hj call Btn raise 79k, I call

River

8654A

I c/call all in for 180k ish

12 people left so there is icm. Basically why I thought calling was ok

1- he shouldn't have much 7x
2- when he has 7x does he really want to raise it when I have every 97 combo
3- he may realize I don't have much 7x this way as in likely to check the flop
4- on the flop I think he. Floats every single back door flush draw and some hands like aq/aj
5- on the turn he has a lot of hands like t8, 98, 99, tt that will realize they don't have showdown value and be forced into raising/folding and raising could be attractive
6- ott it's 50k to win 200k
7- I block 76s and have reverse blockers to every one of the hands he could turn into bluffs
8- he had 20% fold to turn bet over 1.5k hands so he's a more likely candidate
9- I can potebtially bluff jam board pairings

If he never bluffs here it's obviously bad, I thought there was a chance he bluffed at pretty high frequency though. It's definitely optimistic though and if I fold I still have a good stack.

I think my mistake was betting the turn, I though j needed protection but I can get bluff raised and I think it's easier to manage the pot by c/calling.

Kind of regret it now, but all tournament I was gaining chips by going with my gut.

He had 77 btw.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

It's really really hard for BTN to be bluffing in that spot imo

What hands do you think he has that he wants to turn into a bluff here?

Shouldn't your range consist of a pretty good % of 7x?

Even HJ can have 7x some % of the time, so it seems pretty suicidal to bluff here.

All I wanna say is that BTN's turn raise is lolbad and that you should just fold cause he ain't got no bluffs

He had 77 btw.
i rail u and watch that hand and u forgot to add that there was flush draw on turn i think, which makes his raise into 2 people stronger imo with that sizing
also i think villain has more 7x that u do (and u r shoving most of 7x combos on turn imo ) or better 2 pair/sets combos (that he can value shove on river going with assumption that u r shoving most of your 7x combos on that drawy board on turn)

Rare for me to write on these forums but thanks for the read. I've spent every evening after work reading everything on this thread and been thoroughly entertained. Its inspiring to see someone so motivated towards a profession. Ive used the HH to study and think more about my play's in general because of it. Just a rec player here but I feel reading this thread, my head is pushing for me to take it to the next level, we'll see.

Will follow this thread and the football updates, and hopefully a new PGC thread from yourself for next year will come.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

somewhat of a frustrating day with some very good news..

Came 4th in 109r, 3rd in 54ko, 11th in 55 turbo, 5th in 55 deep stacks. Had huge stacks everywhere all day, had decent profit, but ofc its hard to win a house on a Thursday

Found out some very good news about myself today, but been sworn for secrecy right now, but me being me will struggle to keep it under wraps for too long!

Think I'm going to go on Joe Ingram Podcast in couple of weeks, should be fun, but pretty apprehensive about looking like a tool too Definitely not aggro enough for wearing a vest.

Was speaking to a friend yesterday about definition of "clever" we were speaking about a mutual friend and one of us was like "he's very clever" and other was like " no way he's not at all" then we realised we had different definitions of the term "clever" how would you describe being "clever"

I would think someone clever is someone who's a good problem solver, someone who makes good decisions and someone who's intelligent of
course...

I don't know if I just said the same thing three times, have I?

That in itself is amazing news, look forward to it! I wouldn't stress, Joe Ingram interviews are always good. I first discovered you through your interview with Wild Hungarian!

All the best.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

So go to Malta on Monday, one thing I've always done poorly is booking things and not going to them, or booking extra flights home etc. This time round I left things to the very last minute and ended up costing a lot more, one of expectations of 2016 will be to ensure I don't just randomly needlessly spewing money away.

So Malta, I remember Malta last year, it was the first time I played a "super high roller" playing the $25k event. I remember after the event I spoke to the guy that bought a piece in my and some of the SHR regs had told him that they thought I hadn't played well for something. I was pretty defensive about it at the time, since then I've realised four things.

1- I must always aim to improve every month, not just "ok I feel better" but clear, transitions in my game that I have really gone after, identified and improved. At that time my evbb/100 was 6bb which is a pretty good win rate, the highest I knew of was 9 from one of the best players I knew, so my goal was to get it as high as that. I was speaking to a friend about what "clever" means, I posted it in here the other day. Its very hard to agree on exactly what "clever" means.. Is it somebody who is book smart? Somebody that is naturally good at something? I agreed with myself that I think somebody is clever who notices something I didn't even think about. A lot of the time, this happens in training videos, Sauce speaks about only needing 25% equity to defend the big blind and we're getting 5/1 and then everybody starts completely changing their big blind defence rate. Between the Malta time and before Vegas, I wasn't working that hard, my game was perhaps going through the motions. Since Vegas I think I've identified ways of improvement asides from watching videos or speaking to friends. Trying things out, working on things and trying to be the "clever" poker player that advances his game quicker than others is definitely one of my goals moving forward. In the last 9 months my evbb/100 is 12 and in reg speeds its 14. I used to go over hand histories and cringe about stuff that was needless, but recently I've been proud to go over them. I've been very reluctant to post these figures for a few obvious reasons, but this is kind of a bigger summary post and I'm really proud about them. A lot of this was down to my attitude towards poker, I was playing 15 tables, playing stupid tournaments, getting less huge stacks because I was auto piloting etc, now I try and play 8 tables maximum, often 4-6 tables.

2- The good players aren't THAT good. There is one level of player which is trueteller, fish2013, otbredbaron, sauce, kanu etc who are miles ahead of everybody. There is then a 3rd category of players, who are way too lazy, play completely exploitable styles and are very bad regs. The second category where I think I belong is forever changing, Naza may have been at the top 1 year ago, now its Fedor, maybe one month ago it was somebody else. People have goals of being the best player in the world etc, its sometimes just impossible, the guys in tier 1 are just way smarter (clever ) than I am, will see things way quicker than I will be able to and will be able to process information in game a lot clearer than I will. I don't want to be a tier 1 top reg, but its super important my goal is to be the top reg of tier 2. The other guys in this list are either 1- too rich! to super care about poker and continue at the top, 2- too old, have families or some commitments or motivation issues about being at the top of the competition

3- Game selection is very important. I will continue playing super high rollers when I feel the tournament is good, but I won't just mindlessly register every one of them. I won't register EPT Malta 25k, but very likely will play one in say Barcelona, or Prague or France/Italy/Spain etc. We have processed literally hundreds of applications for my stable over the last few months and so many regs have the same problems. They win 100k at $0-100 and just lose it back at $109+. Why the hell would you play a $109 staked with a 5% roi, when you can play a $25 tournament on your own money with 40% roi? You make DOUBLE THE MONEY!!! Most of these guys have gone broke playing too high stakes and just want to keep trying and have too much ego to step down. Often we would love to stake these guys for small stakes, but the fact is if their ego was high enough to play this far above their head then its likely that they are a "chaser" rather than a grinder. This is such an important lesson for me, I need to take shots in tournaments where my roi is very big and skip events where I'm going to be closer to breakeven. Moving forward I will be more aggro with EPT's and soft WSOP events, but a little nittier with other games that will be tougher.

4- Swapping can be expensive! Its very unlikely that you have 6-7 guys who will have very close ROI to yours that you can swap with no problems. Making -ev swaps can be very expensive in general, and its fine to just say "no ty" over the last 18 months I've lost around $100k for swapping. I've had some good scores too though, but moving forward will be more brave in asking people if they want to swap.

I think the "talk" I had with the guy after this event gave me so much motivation to succeed and be that tier 2 top reg. It was a concern for him that I may be more suited to online than live, but I really feel comfortable playing live poker, I feel like I'm socially suited to playing live poker and the live leaks that many have during these trips I seem to do well with. A lot of my goals for 2016 will be revolved around live poker, lets do some goals and expectations for the Malta trip.

Expectations:

Try to do some form of exercise or massage before every event
Very thorough decisions in every hand, nothing rushed, everything logical and decided
Choose the right times to play exploitative and the right times to play "gto"
Continue the good live skills I displayed in Vegas
If we get very unlucky take it really good
No being on phone

Goals:

1 final table

If any 2p2er is in Malta for the festival then hola

good post man, like that you seem to always be thinking about bettering yourself rather than changing, since changing can be for the worse

imo clever is people having the ability to connect the dots and recognize patterns/similarities and adapt to it well

yeah +1, clever people adapt and find creative solutions to problems that arise.

So Malta, I remember Malta last year, it was the first time I played a "super high roller" playing the $25k event. I remember after the event I spoke to the guy that bought a piece in my and some of the SHR regs had told him that they thought I hadn't played well for something. I was pretty defensive about it at the time, since then I've realised four things.....................
Very good post. I realized a few the same things myself recently and it has made a huge difference, namely always winning at low-midstakes to give it back at higher stakes. Thanks for keeping this going, enjoying the read.

Trip report on the ejection?

Also, at the airport in Berlin now, waiting for my flight to Malta, would be down for buying you a beer. Cheers!
