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

Rich I think those of us that are upset that you didn't sell some action feel that way because we want you to make good decisions and improve your situation. And some express it as needles or as sarcasm, because we are upset that, from our view, you consistently make sub-optimal choices which keep you from advancing in poker and in life.

I think sweetswing1's question on did you learn anything is a legitimate one, and I also hope you learned something. It may not be running bad with AK vs AQ, but in a tournament you pretty much always have to win a flip or hold as a favorite, usually multiple times, to make the money.

Well there's something you don't see on two plus two very... ever. Nice post man, very well said.

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

im paranoid and afraid to trust pretty much anyone, once i discover their bankroll is low and they need money. plus theres a lot of others im afraid to trust too, i basically only trust those ive known for many years and have similar beliefs to mine. this is due to me being born with aspergers.

but i do wish i could find one person i could trust to park a van or RV next to the commerce and move it periodically because im unable to learn how to drive due to autism. and then rent it to me for like $150-200 a week and make sure i sleep in it both unbothered and alone. but im worried of being setup for a robbery, even though id have almost no cash on me and it would all be in the commerce bank or my regular bank. (they would kill me for my ATM card). the cost of $500-700 per week for a hotel is eating up about 100% of my profits. though i am earning $32 an hour so far for the first 30 hours ive been logged in while in town.

imagine what my roll could be if i wasnt spending over 75% of my income living out of hotels since i dont have ccredit and proof of income to rent an apartment nor can i afford to take 6 months out of my roll upfront. plus im too afraid to be in a roommate situation. i would never live in anyones house i dont know only if i had the entire place to myself with NO other tenants, not even the owner.

being able to grow the roll would be far easier if the $100-400 PLO $1-2 blinds would quit breaking up. everyone wants to RUN once 1 person leaves, why so much fear to play shorthanded? dont u know u get a LOWER DROP? this is the easiest game to beat in the entire place, and the drop is low just like $40 NL. i sure couldnt afford to play $300-500 or $500-1500 NL to beat the rake, because ive been playing no higher than $1-2 for the last 15 years

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

Anyone who wants to come into this thread and give me advice consider this, my blood pressure is 108/62 with a resting heart rate of 60(tested last week). And I have a near genius level intellect. I'm smarter than you and I'm going to live longer than you.... I don't want your stupid advice.

hmmm gl on the sleeping situation, anyone charging you 150/week to live in a van would be ripping you off. but yeah i understand how you feel. id rather sleep in my car than rent half a room i have to share with some random weirdo. i did that before and i didn't like it. living in the tent was better.

what are your plans if you go broke?

he was recommending sticking to the $200 buy-in game instead of jumping in the $300-$500 game which is what I was doing.

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

yeah i realize talking about how smart i think i am is extremely obnoxious. my bad guys. im obviously not that smart. and yeah lol at me not selling action in that tourney. its whatever. once i refused initially it was impulsive and just felt like there was no turning back after that lol.

i won 400 yesterday. I had KK in the SB one hand with 5 or 6 limpers I raise to 30 the BB raises to 100 I jam 450 and he thinks and calls, we win. Then I get this hand

Hand 1

Hero BTN (covers) AsAc
Villain 1 BB (~$750)T8os
Villain 2 MP(~$500) ??

Villain 2 limps we raise to 25 on the button V1 and V2 call.

Flop($75) Ah8d4x

V1,V2 check, we bet 30 and both call.

Turn($165) Td

V1 checks, V2 bets 120, we raise to 335, V1 calls, V2 calls.

River ($1170) 6s

V1 jams V2 folds with 120 left we obv call and win.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This next hand happened a few hours later I had been up 1600 and then I had been losing a little bit I was up about 1200 or so when this hand happened.

Hero BTN (covers) Ah9h
Villain 1 ($765) 4h4s

Preflop: MP raises to 15, and one call in front of me, I call, and 3 others call.

Flop ($75) 7h5h2s

Orig raiser bets 15 I call and 2 other calls.

Turn ($135) 3h

Checks to me I bet 45 and V1 raises to 145. I call.

River ($425) 6h

V1 bets 300 I raise all-in 290 more he snap calls and shows the straight flush.

I've thought about this hand and I like the way I played it. This player was not very good and I really felt like he could show up with a lot of other hearts on the river and that he wasn't going to bet fold J,Q,K heart on the river. He was overplaying his hands imo so I think jamming the river is fine. That being said I think the only way i might play it different is if I talked to him, maybe I could get a live tell from him. I would ask "Do you have the Ace of hearts or the four of hearts?" and if he says "I don't have the ace of hearts" then I think I could actually find a fold. Whenever someone eliminates their range they usually are nutted and have the best hand. But its whatever. I had some players at the table telling me I should raise the turn lol. That is soooooo stupid its funny. I mean we have position on the river and the nuts so raising and taking the lead away from him is just flat wrong at this stack depth. If I raise the turn he folds. But when I call I keep all his bluffs in on the river and if he makes a straight or flush he might pay off a little bit. I'm only losing to 1 out.....

had the nuts in position against a possible punter. raising the turn is wrong in this spot if we were OOP i think raising turn makes sense.

flatting river is the GTO play but I just felt like he had worse flushes that were going to call there. but its whatever.

I suffered the worst beat I've ever seen live tonight.
$3000(600 bb) pot all in pre flop AA<KK against a verified A-hole.

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

Last night I got into an argument with a jerk named Kevin. He was reaching for the deck in a hand that I had just won and I said "no rabbit hunting". He then proceeded to lose his mind and tell me to shut my mouth and call me an effing f~~got. Which I didn't take well of course and then the stupid floor person comes over and starts talking about you guys both have to go if you don't end it now. Well I tell him how wrong he is and not to come over an tell me "We both need to settle down". Anyway, this hand happensa couple hours later. He had already called an all-in on the turn and rivered a 4outter to make a boat in a 2k pot.

No Justice Hand

Hero MP(~$1500) AA
Kevin BB(covers) KK

The player to my left opens to 15 and I had literally just said "I only play aces" before looking down and seeing pocket aces. I reraise to 45. A short stack on the button goes all-in for 90. The A-hole in the bb raises to 300. It comes back to me and I think about it for a couple of minutes before saying all-in. Kevin thinks about it for a couple of minutes before finally calling.

Flop T9x Turn J River Q

He screams so loud when the queen hits on the river. I effing hate this guy, if I saw him lying on the road dead today I would smile because the world would be a better place. Telling me to shut my mouth and trying to intimidate me. Weak ass coward. I even asked him if I looked scared. The silver lining is that I feel more determined to make some money playing poker.

Why do you care? especially when you have should have been busy stacking his chips anyway. Sounds like you're the one who was being a dick.

Maybe that actually was a justice hand and your perception of your own behavior is skewed.

its possible. but i think me telling the dealer "no rabbit hunting" in hands that i win is not unreasonable. its the rule and when i bet 300 bucks on the flop i want you to have pay that to see the turn. hence "no rabbit hunting". you think im being a dick for that and i can see your point, but im not.

your mindset(and his)is similar to players getting mad at me for raising all the time...its ignorant...

i think telling another person "shut your mouth" and call me an effing f~~got is being a dick. but you seem to be cool with his behavior.

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

If the rule is no rabbit hunting then the dealer should enforce it. No need for you to pipe up. Your EV in not letting him rabbit hunt seems minuscule vs the EV of keeping the game lighthearted and friendly. If your goal was to needle the guy further and provoke a reaction then you got what you wanted but if that's the case then I think you're the one being a dick.

Obviously the dude went from zero to nuclear and way over-reacted and there's no excuse for him acting like that either but you did start it and quite unnecessarily in my opinion.

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

the dealer will not enforce the no rabbit hunting rule if i dont say anything, they just sit there and let the player reach across from seat 7 and grab the deck and start burning and turning then burning and rivering. when i said "no rabbit hunting" the dealer immediately grabbed the deck to prevent this from happening. its against the rules and its annoying especially in a hand where i want him to call 300 to see the turn. thats part of poker you got to pay to see the turn you dont get to see it for free.

and his reaction is obviously uncalled for. he was acting like a bully standing up and posturing asking me to go outside calling me an effing f~~got. i mean come on this guy is exhibiting total bully behavior and all i did was stand up for myself after that. i was very careful not to say anything cross to him but i wasnt going to let it slide i kept loudly telling him how rude he was until he stopped talking and started looking scared. im not going to be bullied.

hes only telling me to shut my mouth and calling me an effing f~~got because im 5'7" 120lbs. He wouldn't talk to a heavyweight MMA fighter like that. My talk is always the same no matter who I'm talking to.

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

Also you saying he has to pay to see the turn is the most retarded **** ever. Him seeing the turn card after the hand is over doesnít affect the hand or the game one bit. Guy sounds like a fish and you sound like a dick that no one would want to play with.

Who cares how he treated you. It wasnít your place trying to control whether he rabbit hunts. Thatís the dealers job. If itís the rules and they donít enforce them guess what you can call the floor and be a dick about it and be hated by the whole table for wasting their time. Or you can play somewhere else with a bunch of other stiffs. In any case it wasnít your place to say **** to him.

Quit making this about him and take a look at your own behavior.

Or you can play somewhere else with a bunch of other stiffs. In any case it wasnít your place to say **** to him.

Quit making this about him and take a look at your own behavior.
I didn't say anything to him. My only mistake was not making it clear that I was addressing the dealer when I said "no rabbit hunting". So like him you are confused and lashing out at mis perceived slights. Calm down bro lol.

I don't care what your opinion is or if I'm a dick. Yeah I was a dick for telling the dealer to do his job. Good perspective. Even if your right, fine, I'm a dick. You can eat a dick for calling me one buddy. How bout dah? Cash me ousside.

I look at my behavior all the time mabye you should look at yours....why u so mad bra? lol.

You sound like a wet towel to me. Probably got participation trophies on your mantle-place. Your favorite pastime is singing kumbayah and holding hands. And sticking up for guys who use homophobic slurs.

And maybe I'm not explaining the situation right then, because Im an awesome person that people love playing with. I'll bet money on it.

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

So I won 1200 last night. Felt good to win after losing AA to KK the night before.

Psychic Intuition

Hero is having a good time and a new player shows up to take the big blind. Based on the way this guy is talking and his willingness to come into the blind instead of wait after the button I decide to blind raise under the gun.

Blind raising is generally a terrible idea. Its probably never right to do, but at an action table I feel like throwing in a blind raise at the start of a session isn't so terrible and could definitely create some action later on in the hand. Plus I might win a hand I otherwise wouldnt play.

Hero blind raises to 15 and the player to my left asks if its a blind raise. I tell him it is, but I felt like it was going to be a good hand so watch out. And I start talking about how having faith in poker is a big part of it.

So hero blind raises to 15 and everyone calls. 9 way to the flop

Hero UTG 52dd ($460)
Villain 3 ATxx(covers)

Flop ($135) As43r

BANG! We flopped a joint in a 9 way pot lol!!!

Blinds check we check everyone else checks!

Turn($135) Ts

Sb bets $50 BB calls. We think for a couple of minutes then jam all-in $445. Villain 3 on our left calls and everyone else folds. Our hand holds!! WEeeeeeee!!!!! Poker is fun!

Cant stop wont stop. Im motivated and determined and driven.

"I effing hate this guy, if I saw him lying on the road dead today I would smile because the world would be a better place."

I actually lol'd at this comment, does that make me a terrible person? Was the guy's actual name Kevin? If so, I would have used a false name in the story.

I totally agree on the "no rabbit hunting", for a small pot it's whatever, but for a larger pot, I don't want the guy to think he made a good fold (if he gets to see run out for free).

I hate it when people get so stupidly offended over something like that, and automatically turn into douches, like seriously no need for "Kevin" to go off on you like that. I think the use of the word "******" is so disgusting, takes me back to like 5th grade, like grow up.
