Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Buttery Soft Titties

Hero BB ($200) AA
Villain UTG (covers) AQos

Villain opens to $6 everyone folds to us and we raise to $20. Villain clicks it back to $34 and we call.

Flop ($65.55) QJ6r

We check and villain jams all-in for $166 effective and we call and win with a clean runout.

I'm about breaking even right now because I lost a stack earlier with AA vs a set. Stupidly. I should have folded. Also I have a 2x starting stack in the thousandaire maker, feeling lucky.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

ICM Suicide

This is in the $75+7 thousandaire maker. Top 6 make $1k, 7th gets $450 and 8th place gets bupkis.

8 left. Big bubble. 600/1200 blinds 120 ante

Hero HJ (19,207) AQos
Villain BB (30,191) 88

3 folds and we jam all-in 19k. Folds to the big blind who calls. He has 88. He's a distant 2nd in chips at the table. 1st has 70k chips and is just jamming 90% of hands. If Villain calls and loses he's going to go from 2nd to last in chips. The other stacks range from 12k to 23k.

This is just straight up ICM suicide on his part. Calling with 88 is just way too low.

We get lucky and hit the ace on the flop and hold on to win. Villain ends up busting about an orbit later, again calling all-in from the big stack. His A8hh loses to A9.

Later when it's 7 handed we have KK and the big stack has shoved all-in. We have about 35k while the other five stacks have 10k-18k. Easiest fold ever. I'm not even sure if I should be calling AA in this spot, probably not.

I have a question for you guys about a hand.

Do You Fold AA Preflop Here?

7 left, top 6 all get $1k and 7th gets $450.

Blinds 800-1600 ante 160

The other stacks at the table are approximately 18k chips, 16k chips, 13k chips, 12k chips, and 10k chips.

Hero CO (~36k chips) AA
Villain UTG+1 (110k chips) ??

Villain goes all-in. Villain has been jamming all-in preflop in about 90% of hands. Very rarely he will fold when he has first in vigorish. It's a race to the bottom, the other guys are all folding and waiting for somebody else to bust. Everybody has been overfolding to the big stack.

This is basically the scenario I faced last night holding KK. Easy fold. Would you fold AA here? I'm pretty sure aces is also an easy fold. If we had aces we would be about an 85% favorite against a random hand. And I think given the stack sizes and the situation we are much more likely than 85% to make top 6 by folding here than calling.

I think it's an easy fold given the stack distribution. There's enough cluster at 10,12,13, and 16 that they will be pressured to have action. Basically I don't think you need to play a hand until you get down to being one of the shortest stacks.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Results 7/4: -$695
Results 7/5: -$165
Results 7/6: +$450
Results 7/7: +$50

Yesterday I had the horror of watching AA deep into a tourney be folded because the client crapped out. So frustrating. Of course I would have ended up winning the hand too. Oh well.

Yeah I'm pretty certain calling it off with AA in that spot is suicidal given the circumstances. It's almost impossible for us to not cash top 6 by just folding in that spot.

Thank. I play probably every day. I try not to play too many. I'd like to just fire off the $55 40k guaranteed daily and nothing else but sometimes I'll bust early or I'll just feel like playing more.

Have u ever heard of mistakes, then growth?

I donít make up stories man. people at commerce say that you smell bad bro.

Yeah real maturity in making more stuff up about me and insulting "all the dummies of the world". You're a straight up sociopath dude making up lies. So I smell bad, I beg for money from people, I ducked playing you at LATB... Anything other lies about me you got? You're the one on 2p2 asking for handouts and you probably smell bad too.

And if you offered to send Spyu pics via text, why wouldn't he just say that you offered? Instead he says it's in your best interest and he's not that concerned. Your lies don't even add up. You think your smarter than everyone but you're probably as dumb as a rock. Just like everyone else who thinks they're smarter than everyone else. You haven't grown. And you not thinking you deserve love from anyone jives perfectly with you being a sociopath.

Lol. I'd love to sit down with you in front of a psychologist.
Your logic doesn't make any sense. So am I dumb as a rock, or am I sociopath? You do understand that to be an advantage taking sociopath, you have to be smart right?

I know I don't have to prove anything to you, but when I came back to the states, I had the option of working for a bank, albeit retail, but the pay would have been decent. I took back the grinder route once again in order to have a flexible schedule to work on a humanitarian project, as well as work on my own thoughts, self care, and dedicate my time to family. I bought all the baby stuff secondhand through garage sales to save money. When I was grinding, I only worked maybe 25
to 30 hrs a week, so I could see my son more, and my rate was 35$/hr. Covid really ****ed me up.

My relationship with my baby mama is good, actually. We worked thru some stuff and we're good co parents. Thanks for believing the worst in people Rick.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

I think rick needs to get back to his roots and get 3 tatted up chicks into the van and then drive around LA taking pictures of the girls and him partying it up. That would be epic.
Also get back to playing live mtt's in LA because that's what he's going to do with his life once he cracks a 100k super high roller on a trip to vegas. Then he will have 20 tatted up girls in and outside his van in vegas.

No your not as dumb as a rock, that's a simile. You're probably slightly above average intelligence. I'm just trying to tell you that you are not as smart as you think you are, that much is evident. What's your humanitarian project? Something grandiose to serve your own ego no doubt. That's not the same as donating your time to a soup kitchen bub.

If you're such a good guy then why are you on here making up lies about me? Saying I'm the beggar of Commerce and that I smell bad? Who did you ask about me anyways? And how would anyone know me from your description anyways? Not many people know my real name or know me from 2p2. No other 2p2er will attest that I've ever asked for money from them or that I've smelled bad and I've played with a few of them. You however, are constantly begging for donations on this website. Seems like you are projecting your ineptitude on me.

I don't believe the worst in people. Maybe you're mistaken about me and whatever person(s) you talked to was talking about somebody else. But I do doubt it given the nastiness with which you said it and that it makes more sense that you would just be making things up. I mean are you really going around Commerce and asking about another player who posts on the internet? Who are your sources?? No, you're just a lying weasel.

Two guys? Why would anyone vouch for you being a "standup guy" in person?

You had a problem with meeting with me in person. Remember?

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Results 7/8: +$300

Didn't play any tourneys yesterday. Just cash games. 200nl is pretty tough but I can hang.

Today the $55 40k guaranteed registration period changed from the 11th blind level 250/500 blinds to the 16th level 500/1k blinds. Which is pretty absurd. I bought in at the last second and got seated at a new table with a bunch of other 5k stacks. We were all on the same page, stall, time bank, time down. I literally played 3 hands and then was in the money. No joke, late reg tourney, play 3 hands, ITM. Easy game. I guess they changed it because the guarantees weren't being met the last few days or whatever but this is just too easy to exploit. And I like money so of course I'm gonna late reg and stall, it would be stupid not to.

Very First Hand

Hero CO (covers) Ac5s
Villain SB ($142.38) T2ss

Hero posts $2 in the cutoff, everyone folds to us and we check. SB completes and BB min raises to $4. We call, SB calls.

Flop ($11.40) AK4hss

SB checks, BB min bets $2, we call and SB calls.

Turn ($17.10) 5h

SB checks, BB min bets $2 again, we raise to $16, SB and BB both call.

River ($62.70) As

The money card. SB bets pot $62.70, BB folds, we raise him all-in for $120.38 and he calls. Feels nice to stack someone on the very first hand.

I agree. I'm not trying to make peanuts playing piddly ass online tourneys and low stakes cash games. I'm trying to be the next Dan Bilzerian.... only cooler! Tatted up naked chicks stroking my beard in the back of my van!

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Let It Rip!!

Hero UTG+2 ($197) 77
Villain UTG+4 (covers) T6dd

UTG+1 opens to $4, we call, UTG+4 calls and BB calls.

Flop ($16.15) Q73ddx

BB bets pot $16.15, UTG+1 calls. What do we do here? Hmmmm..... We let it rip!!!! All-in for $193 total. Villain calls with his ten high flush draw and the other two guys fold.

Turn ($431.30) 5x

Here comes the 4 next right?

River ($431.30) 2x

Nope! We win!

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Fold Or Call???

Hero UTG+2 (covers) AA
Villain UTG+1 ($165.75) ??

Villain opens to $6 and we raise to $21, only villain calls.

Flop ($42.75) KK4r

Villain checks, we bet $14 and villain calls.

Turn ($69.35) Ts

Villain checks and we check it back. A ten on the turn always helps somebody.

River ($69.35) 8x

Villain bets $52.01, we think about it and I just don't see how this could really be a bluff. We fold. Should I be calling here??? I'm really interested to know what you guys think. Bad fold? Good fold? Trivial call? Thanks for any input.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

Results 7/9: +$510

_/\_



Another Bad Fold? Maybe?

Hero HJ (covers) KK
Villain UTG+1 ($200) ??

Villain limps and we raise to $9 and only villain calls.

Flop ($19.95) 993r

Villain checks and we check it back.

Turn ($19.95) Tr

Villain checks we bet $10 and villain calls.

River ($38.95) 8x

Villain checks, we bet $20 trying to get that thin value and villain check raises to $62. We're blocking KQ and KJ so I think folding makes the most sense. We fold. Good fold or bad fold??

Spoiler:


Let me know what you guys think of that AA fold earlier please. I'm not sure what the right play is there exactly. Thanks.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

H1: bink!

H2: bink!

H3: why not x flop instead? flop was rainbow but sizing could allow V to float with some weird low SDV sheeyit that’s gonna wanna yolo bluff here. Usually a king+ though ofc. Disciplined fold, I like it, although I hate to be folding our entire range.

H4: KK a little too vulnerable to x/back you think? Yeah i don’t think we have a choice facing the river x/r when we’re not beating any value here.
