Re: Grinding past the fries

You're not as much fun as when you were pretending to be from a 3rd world country and speaking in broken English.

Updated 18 hours ago, sorry it's not more regular mame. Sounds like you've got the gazzyb pgc bug!

Wanna do a prop bet for February, more for my own motivation than anything. My $500 to your $500 that I can run 80 miles in Feb. I'm most unfit...

Holla at me.

Re: Grinding past the fries

Let's goooo Gazzy. How about a prop bet for Vegas? 100 Table tennis games and I win 95? That'll get you fit from all the energy you'll exert with your raging..

Re: Grinding past the fries

This coming from the guy who, when I threw down my paddle in a fit of rage and broke it, gave me the other paddle, took out his iphone and used it as a paddle and still thumped me...

I'm actually thinking of coming out to LA again mid April and just staying until end of WSOP! Also I can so drive... just not in the eyes of the law...

I've only ever really played live properly in London, Vegas and LA. London live is pretty poor, games here are great but not as good as Vegas. Having said that I'm playing 5/10 here and play 2/5 in vegas normally soooo. Basically USA games are good.

Yeah man PLO runs daily at the Commerce. I haven't noticed any higher than 5/10 running but even with the 1500 cap it gets super super deep. There might well be higher running but I just haven't noticed. Holla at me if you decide to come out

Haha thanks man! I try read the Skype group every day but it's fkn huge and I always lose track and just give up. To all the BTS guys please know that I love and miss you all!

Swingy few days. After riding the rollercoaster all the way to a small amount of profit for the trip I lost $3480 yesterday and was pretty dejected. Back at it today and sitting with a $5700 stack from a $1500 buy in. Back in profit, and thus the LATB text has been sent! Hopefully get on this week or something.

Painful hand from yesterday. Utg limps, I isolate red AJo to 50, sb who is a spewy as **** whale calls, utg calls. Flop is 933ssx. I cbet 110, sb calls. Turn is 4h. He x, I bet 260 ott (which in hindsight I hate, big mistake here). Anyway he calls and river is Kh. He takes 5 seconds and donk jams for 940. Spidey senses are tingling here big time. I narrow it down to 44 or spades and after a few mins I call him off.

"Good call." He says.

A few seconds pass. I don't move.

"Ace high." he says slightly irritably and turns his hand over for the most excruciating moment of my live poker career. He has the ace of spades and the queen of hearts. I make a Chandler Bing-esque noise and muck. Whole table is like wtf. Dealer guffaws and says "ace jack?!" I'm just sitting there like ugggghhhhhgh.

He then proceeds to tell me how he blocked himself (word for word) and how he wasn't sure what my range was because he had As. As he stacked my chips. I was just sitting there thinking "you have just heard poker words and mashed them into a sentence."

Fun hand

Quick selfie for the fans...

Re: Grinding past the fries

Haha love the last 2 posts!

Soo last night I got moved to a really soft table coz my game broke, and proceeded to run aaaaaaaidsy over 3 main hands. First one, 4 limps on my BB, I check 52o. Flop is 532r. I lead here for 35 into 50, btn (who I thought was a pretty good reg but in the few hours I've played with him last night did some seriously bad ****) makes it 90. SB calls, I call. Turn Jx, btn bets 200, only I call. River 2 he bets 300. I say "you either have pocket threes or ace four and you're not gonna call a raise with ace four so I call, I have 52". He shows me 33 and guy not in the hand goes "SEAT CHANGE!" lol. One of only two times I have spoken a tiny bit of strat at the tables throughout the trip. First time I tried to have a strat talk was when I overbet the turn on like 8QJT btn vs bb with A2s and the guy folded and I showed him and he was like "lol if ur gonna overbet u should defo go bigger to make me fold!" and I just couldn't resist and said "well that's the size I bet with AK and why would I go bigger if you fold to the size I just used which you obviously do coz you just did?" and in those 30 or so words I clearly ripped his ****in world apart.

Second annoying hand, btn who is a not bad but kinda spewy rec makes it 50 w 700 behind, I am in SB w 77 and tbh don't hate all options. I decided to go with it and made it 240 (he never calls now). He piles it in, I am gonna be first to show so I just flip em, he looks annoyed. Flop 99Q. I jokingly shout "queen!". Queen turn. He has AKo. Nh.

Last hand super ****in annoyed me. I never get entitlement tilt but I did big time after this hand. So UTG 7 handed opens to 25 (lol), someone calls, I defend 109o from BB. Flop is 678ccx. UTG bets 70 into 80, I make it 300, he calls. Turn is Qc, I x (think it's marginally better than betting). He takes a minute, looks at his holecards twice in that time, and then piles in 1100. Sigh snap. Could just tell he had it the way he acted after I called. Shows me K2cc.

Got up to go get more $ from the cage but I was just way too tilted and decided to gg. Still made $500 yest but was up a few k so was a bit annoyed.

Got up today, went for a run, and gonna get straight back at it!

Anyone want action on this running bet? 80 miles over the course of February, $500 even money. I'm not doing it for the money, moreso for the fact that $500 is enough of an amount to make me actually try my best and if I lose it doesn't bankrupt me. Someone take some of it at least pls!

I don't actually know how tuff it is to run ~3 miles a day. I think after Bilzerian's success in endurance props, 90 might be too low.

90 isn't going to be super hard for someone in good shape, but Feb only has 28 days AND Gaz has to stay motivated enough to do it.
