Re: 2021 NC/LC

Going to WSOP in 2 days. First time playing live poker in a decade, with a couple very brief exceptions. Kinda concerned about a breakthrough COVID infection, especially since I have a health issue or two and I'm gonna take the mask off at the table, but YOLO. I'm excited. Probably going to spend at least one day "enjoying the nightlife", as it were.

And with that I conclude my regular practice of making back-to-back-to-back-to-back posts. Nothing is new under the sun.

Re: 2021 NC/LC

Elo, that would have been pretty epic if you hardcore chat tilted on the Botez sisters since they have 1000+ viewers at any given time. I am self-banned from chess so that I will focus my time on studying/playing NL. It is pretty amazing how terrible I am at the game, but I think I am improving. In my last 95k hands of 25 NL Zone, I am winning at a 7+ BB/100 clip! I am looking forward to finally becoming competent enough to crush 200 Zone and take shots at 500 Zone.

I am glad you are crushing again! You might be the GOAT when it comes to just playing a ton, not studying, and still getting really good at poker. Nowadays, most regs refuse to believe that it is possible to beat 200 NL without zillions of hours working with PIO solver and a good coach.

As far as $3 per hand, I assume you mean at 30/60 LHE? That is a huge heater, but 5 BB/100 for a stretch is obv possible. But does that include your 200 and 500 NL? If so, that blows my mind. Your winrate must be off the charts to the point that you clearly belong in the 10/20 games.

As far as pre-flop charts, the only ones I know of are here:

https://solveoptimized.com/product/lhe-6h/

You would need to buy monkersolver and learn how to use it as well. That price is absurd imo, and I have no idea how good those ranges are. If you keep bringing it up ITT, someone in the know might PM you and offer to sell you some for a slightly less ridiculous price. I don't play LHE anymore, so I am not the person to ask.

As far as NL ranges, the ones on GTO Wizard are free. You just have to sign up through a google email and you can see them all. They use the pre-flop ranges as a way to advertise their post-flop product which costs a monthly fee to access.

Games at Commerce have picked up. There have been some huge donators in the 20/40 games lately.

I am surprised that Commerce hasn't run some promos to try and get their mid-high LHE players back from the Bike. It's like they don't even care.

Re: 2021 NC/LC

It is like they don't even care; but I am not surprised at all. Last time I was at Commerce (3 years ago?) they had Ultimate Texas Holdem table games where the 20-40 and 40-80 games used to be.

Re: 2021 NC/LC

For the last year, I have suspected commerce of not paying out the full promo fund. They still do not give comps for time played and have only partially restored the jackpots. They used to run promos every other month. Idk. Something fishy is going on there.

Instead of running promos they hired some hosts and nitty props. Despite that, the games have been great (go figure).

Goddammit, he's no longer the forum owner. Why in God's name can't I put Mason Malmuth on my Ignore list? In this forum he is effectively a troll.

Doesn't BBB have a reputation for being able to make these things happen in his sleep?

Hopefully your trip in Vegas went well Elo! Congratulations on crushing online poker as well

Considering going to Mon and Thu 20/40 half kill home game again I haven't gone since December 2020. Let me know if you're interested if you are ever in Chicago.

Can't sleep.

Hope I don't offend anyone but I'd 100% give seat to Elo, Unguarded, or Don Juan in games I'm able to play.

Probably would pay Elo a significant amount for coaching too if offered.
