i say this with 100% truth, both from experience and also knowing the DTD regs really well. The weekly 1/2 cash game at DTD is the single, toughest and worst 1/2 cash game in the whole world. 8/9 are usually regs, with 1 'fish' who could probably break even at 10nl online. Everyone is 1kŁ deep too which lends to their live skill edge. All this said though, it's the weekend and the UKIPT so the game will be good!

Re: Solid's 2015

Yeh a lot of the live cash games play so weird compared to internet poker. Very unconventional styles but still tough to beat unless you hit a few flops cus guys dont like folding. I was playing some 100nl down J10 few weeks back and game was pretty soft and if you hit a few boards you could clean up due to guys paying off incredibly light.

Re: Solid's 2015

Dam Ben that is bad news!! Should I steer clear this week of cash you think?? Or will it be softer cod of ukipt?

Sat at table 56

1st hand misread my hand and barrelled what I though was decent equity of a good run out. Turned out I flopped top pair and got some nice value instead.

Just set mined for a 20bb 3bt and didn't hit.

The whittle has begun...

Re: Solid's 2015

haha you sick luckbox! Just assess the game when you're there - leave if it sucks and stay if you spot fish, just like online

Ok cheers Ben! That sounds like good advice to me

I'm down to 15k in the mini which is 50bb. The guy to my left has already comments on how often I raise pre and then fold flops. He has also squeezed me 4 times now lol and the only showdown hand he had KK. His 3bts are typically 6x the original raise. Hmmmm

Folded to all bar the 22 set mine. Picked up 22 twice now.

DTD overlay soooo often it's untrue in these types of events. Respect to them for continuing to stay ambitious with their GTD's

tyty! i did 5x5 needed a big spot getting them up though and also for the final rep of each set. i think I'm stronger than I look though although my squat could be better, still only 110kg for one rep max - although I go LOW. and I i dont know what it is but i NEVER ache or anything from the gym. Like i could have done another chest session the day after. also i can go to the gym again now. Idk if it means i dont push hard enough while in the gym but I dont think its that cos crossfit is pretty intense.

so in conclusion. the gym i go to with my gym buddy needs to buy bigger dumbbells for me. and ive told them. NEED THOSE GAINZZZ

Re: Solid's 2015

hit the gym again this evening. worked much harder than earlier today after a good feed a few hours before. I actually think I may be getting a cold/chesty cough thing which is annoying, im totally fine just coughing a bit and i never really cough. It could however be the airconditioning in the casino/hotel drying me out.

good night ppl! and gl tonight, and remember the bigger11 is free for you to win tonight
