Re: Moving Up Stakes, 2015 and beyond

Why was that hand tilting, you were behind all the way. Wait until they start showing up with 74s and hitting the backdoor if you want real tilt.


PS. River was an easy fold btw. lul

Good thing you did quit immadietely after feeling anger, but why would you ever tilt after this kind of cooler? Those happen literally every day.

Being angry doesn't really have to do with anything logical.

Re: Moving Up Stakes, 2015 and beyond

Any thoughts about switching to PLO?

I've tentatively switched over, and am thoroughly enjoying the grind. Something I haven't felt in years.

Thanks, guess you never quit sessions early? or any other high stakes regs for that matter? Everyone tilts/quits sessions early--even guys at the highest stakes or the biggest crushers online. I guarantee it. Quitting a session early is not enough to say it's going to take a long time. Better than ignoring your mood and punting off stacks with the mentality "this doesn't affect me" which I see lots of people do.

I'm human, not a robot.

this, imo the biggest area in today's games where one can get more edge in poker is in the mental game. Even if you're a strong player, if you tilt, you will be -EV in a lot of soft line ups, imagine in your normal stakes.

Usually if you lack understanding of the game, you will end up losing 1bb here, 2bb there during a hand by misplaying some spots, when tilted, you can end up making 20-100bb mistakes easily. Can't underestimate that.

I certainly won't be the one to complain if regs are underdefending like that

To be perfectly fair it's quite close vs the population, but I did cbet 25% so anything is possible.

Re: Moving Up Stakes, 2015 and beyond

Yo yo yo,

So went on vacation to a place right off a lake in Minnesota with a bunch of guys I use to work with. Was good to see them since I've quit and this was the 3rd year in a row we've done this. Overall, weather was great most of the days we were up there. We got there pretty late on Wednesday and left Sunday morning. Surprisingly enough we didn't do any fishing, but we did drink a lot. I think on Wednesday we bought around $500-600 of alcohol and drank it all between the 7 of us. Played some yard games and did some boating and had a bon fire the last night. Was very nice to get away again, but now we're back!

Also forgot to mention the very special laptop / face-cam stream over the weekend. Nice to see you are getting back to the grind though looking forward to seeing some more streams in the near future boss.
