Do you critique movies just by the title?

Re: Three Years in Las Vegas

Fantastic followup Dynasty.
The honesty displayed in your writing is obviously what's serving you so well in your game. Keep up the great work and good luck in next 7 years.

I hope to run into you at this years WSOP ( but I'm still grinding the 1/2nl lol )

It's so refreshing to hear an honest description of what professional poker is like compared to all the 2+2 hogwash

Dynasty, what do you attribute your failures in 1-2 to? Any thoughts after being able to beat higher stakes?

It is ridiculous that you condescend based on someone's lifestyle choices.

The whole point of playing poker for a living for many of us is the lifestyle flexibility. If not, there are plenty of other ways to earn alot of money. Dynasty is going to do whatever he pleases, not what some donk on a message board thinks.

Good read, Dynasty. Glad to hear things have gone so well for you this year. There was never really any doubt about your ability to beat the game.

Stop. 99% of 2+2ers are idiots? 99%?

Next your going to tell us that 99% of 2+2ers are so ignorant as to think what they do online is properly called poker, LOL. You couldn't possibly think that.

Remember: the difference between real poker and online poker is the difference between real sex and porn.

In a few years, when you turn 18, find a poker room, play the real game. Then go out, find a human girl, lose your virginity.

Afterwards, you'll never again obsessively and egotistically think that online poker and porn are great because "it's what YOU do!"

Re: Three Years in Las Vegas

i personally love live poker, there is no comparison really... online poker is great for getting large amounts of hands but really thats about it....live poker gets you out of the house and in social situations which you neglect when playng online. personally i love my days playing brick and mortar, you can sit and talk with perople, get better reads, and you don't burn out like you do online. plus you have a waitress which will bring you anything you want. or you can walk 2 seconds and hit up a kickass buffet for dinner or lunch or you could grab a drink anytime...it just gives a feeling like your going to work, gets me in the zone. but thats just me...

I think you misread something. I didn't fail at 1-2. I was stuck at 1-2. I was always able to beat that game easily.

I haven't played online since late 2005 and don't intend to again. It doesn't interest me. Liver poker is much more enjoyable for me.

Re: Three Years in Las Vegas

good god were you lucky that worked out. most of us faced a much steeper learning curve then you did when we started. its taken me 4 or 5 years playing on the side to reach the bigger buyin type games. congrats man! fun read. if you play nl maybe will meet in vegas sometime.

Sounds you didn't really worry about money to start with. Most people can't live that way
