Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

he is just stubborn and had 1 year to produce the videos. now he wants me to like an idiot, o.k., no problem. but then I choose max amount possible. to be fair, it's not 500, it's 495$.

and he donates 5k to charity and is even more a gerat hero. (in fact he buys himself out of producing promised videos)

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Whatever the result I just want to say that I'm glad we worked some entourage and (more importantly) Ari Gold into the thread because hes a ****ing boss and every thread needs more ari gold imo.

Also @ this joker. There's a reason there are sites who release videos and that this **** isn't done in private very frequently.

**** happens. Get over it.

every topic should include some entourage stuff

For example when OP's in a downswing: 'You will come back stronger than ever. Like Lance Armstrong. but with two balls'

Too bad last seasons were pretty mediocre, movie trailer was looking good tho

If I do 2k that's 4 people. I already refunded 5 Which is a normal amount. Bought 10 pt4 licenses. Sent 22 videos, did 20?ish of other stuff. Will that be enough for you? Or do you want me to give the last pennies back too.

Im not going to go back finding counter screen shots or wasting more time (I haven't even calculated that time against my hourly rate) just say the amount and your charity. In fact if you seriously think 500 I'll donate 5k to the charity that way I surely can't be accused any further of being the wrong here. After this please never contact me again, ask for staking, message me, post in any of my threads.

Karma will prevail it alwyas does.
Please give me a reasonable explanation of the refund you think you deserve (value you didn't receive from the pack) with reasons why, I swear on all of my families life I will 100% donate the money to the charity that you posted above (assuming its reasonable, haven't checked the site yet) and won't squirm out of it at all.

Just post what you think is true and I promise I will.

You're making me ill over this!

We all get it, you're angry over something that has nothing to do with anyone reading this blog and everything to do with you and him. So why bring it here if not to completely try to leverage yourself into some money? It just comes off as nothing but self serving and now you've been exposed for not only tarnishing your own reputation but that of PokerStrategy's (to which I am sure they greatly appreciate). All of this could have been handled through PM and to be honest you probably would have more success as now Patrick pretty much as to turn his back on you as anyone else would. You have a right to be angry if you feel like you were being ripped off and such but your way of going about is childish, inconsiderate and completely derails this thread which I think was really your endgame anyways.

So after all of this you've gotten Patrick to donate money to a charity so I guess some good as come of it. I hope you feel better about the situation and can put it behind because you can tell from the responses that nobody really cared in the first place. So go back under your bridge, troll, and let the adults go about their business.

You're making me ill over this!
-the number of missing videos is equal to the the number of videos that were in the initial package. you got better and moved up after releasing the course, they should have even more value than the initially sold ones.

o.k. lets say 200$

- missing session review
(I guess on your to do list was to make these reviews and release them too,you were talking about 40 session review videos)

let's say 100$

I won't add a PT4 lic. I have one.

I wasted a lot of time.
first time I complained in skype group, later you produced the 4 vids last april.
2nd time this didn't work and I posted in you thread where you sold the package. answer was a big post, with sorry and lots of blabla.
this is the 3rd time I complain, this time I post again in skype group, at pokerstartegy and also here.

I'm fair, and I won't charge the time I spent posting in forums or in skype trying to make you produce the vids.

this time instead of posting your usual I'm sorry blablabla I had no time blabala you try to make me look like an idiot.
o.k. I accept this, I do what you want me to do, I play the game you want me to play.
and of course I post max amount, when I must make the clown I do it right. now people laugh at me, they flame me anyway all the time, call me a joke etc.

you are the winner, and I made the donkey for you, but this, my friend, this is PRICELESS

all of this would have never happened if you wouldn't have been so lazy. so accept the amount I posted (it's NOT negotiable from my side), do at least once what you promised and donate, if you have a look at the site, you will see it is for a good cause.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

I bought the video package in January last year. I had cashed out a big portion of my bankroll, had a lot of pressure on my shoulders and my results at 100/200nl were not as good as expected. Games were tougher than I thought and I hadn't improve my game since quite along time.

Having seen some of Pad's videos on pokerstrategy, I decided to spend the 500$ for the package. I have been pleased by the content, it helps me to improve my game and have a different/fresh point of view of the game.

I don't understand why there is people unhappy about the content. If I remember correctly he added some extra videos and was participating for some time in the chat. He might have been able to participate more, but, I feel that for 500$, the package was very good value.

Most of the players in the chat were playing quite low stakes, and with this package plus the personnal attention you were getting (he offered to make a personnal review of one of your session) you should have been able to improve a lot of move up in stakes, which is worth way more than 500$.

It's inapropriate to say that his package wasn't worth the money. It was, and with the extra content, it was worth more than that imo. If you haven't improve thanks to it, it's your fault, you probably haven't work enough by yourself, or maybe you aren't made to play poker after all.

^^^This guy knows what's up!!! Ari Gold = GOAT ^^^
my intention was never to derail his blog, but it was the only way to get his attention and put some pressure on him, he ignores sykpe and private messages btw. but then he attacked me very hard here, and it continued this way.
I'm not the one to blame. instead of attacking me he could have resolved this for example in the skype group.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Was really enjoying this thread. Was shocked (and obv happy) that a someone as well regarded as you would post booms/breakdown hands. Without knowing much about you, you've come across really well in this thread. Pretty annoyed to see it being hijacked by some idiot really.

It's really refreshing to see a reg act with class and be humble about what they have. Really hope this **** storm blows over and this thread gets back to normal.

Good luck for the future

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

Came 12th in the 320 sko today. Nice to get experience of a deep run before Sunday. I like that as I'll learn from my mistakes for tomorrow.

Here is a fun spew hand from mamoht. I dont usually 4bet bluff etc in these tournaments as everybody is fkn ballistic.

http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hand...632_3B769536C1

Fun hand vs gordiju, won't believe me but I was on skype to a friend and said QTs here for sure

http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hand...443_FF072DA731

Really interesting hand, I check thrice with KK. Really curious what he bet/folds with this sizing on the river. I don't think he'd use this sizing to bluff and very curious which value hands he ended up folding? thoughts?

http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hand...170_36D9721FEC

I defend my bb v.wide, gotta bluff the streets sometimes..

http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hand...052_2735392E84


Reg looked me up reallllllly light in 100r

http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hand...142_EE91207D68

HAHAHAHAH GET THEREEEEE!!!!!!!!!

http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hand...275_E03623D113


This is toughest spot I've had in 1 year of playing MTT's, what would you have done?

http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hand...216_89050725F8


Any questiosn about any hands post quoting the hand and your Q and I'll go into detail.

Re: Pads1161 #bracelethunting

That last hand should be easily solvable in HRC.

My hunch is that they need to have unrealistically wide 3bet and 4bet ranges to make it a get in. Seeing as BB is always committed to you, he's probably not wide enough.

http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hand...170_36D9721FEC

yeah this is interesting. Would expect him to set up his bets a little better for a more natural river jam with a flush/missed f draw, seems like rivers gonna be a pot/slightly over pot jam anyway though, unless he's really going on the bigger side flop/turn. If we assume he isn't bluffing and only going for value, all I can think of is 65s, maaaybe QJ (which he should check back on flop) but highly doubt it. My moneys on 65s or spazz airballin'

Reg looked me up reallllllly light in 100r

This is toughest spot I've had in 1 year of playing MTT's, what would you have done?

http://www.boomplayer.com/poker-hand...216_89050725F8

I think cold 4b guy could def be doing this with something worse that has okay equity to sigh call off if/when you jam (though thats going to depend heaps on what he thinks you 5b jam here with). I was railing this but forget who the 4better is. Do you think he's ever going to 4bf here? with that sizing? Would be gross but I guess it doesn't seem impossible and looks like a good spot to really **** you over with icm, i mean.. you DID fold AKdd haha. Think your crushing pearljammer (3betters) range tho and assume you snap fistpump jam it in his face/4b call off, if it folds round to you... so it's really up to reads/history/what you think of the 4better. Could see maybe folding at a super weak table where guys just aren't really 4bf there and always have the nuttest of nuts, and you just know you can fold to avoid a flip/being crushed, then you can crush them all later anyway, then it might be worthwhile... I could never fold at this FT though. Then again, you are pads, and I assume you feel that way about most tables you play at haha (why risk it when you can take all their chips pwning them later without aipf showdown). Honestly looked like you were going to take this tourney down at one point before losing AT < 65 vs dadoweic for 1/3. which would've made the fold and my point above correct. gg
