Re: 08 so far...

Knowing your luck, you should have bet the flop to protect your hand against running quins.

I like how when FWF does something it's LOL AWESOME

and when some noob posts about helping a friend in an MTT everyone's like GTFO CHEATER WE HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR YOUR UNETHICAL WAYS


Moral of the story is that BBV is stupid

um...this isn't "helping a friend." this is purposefully taking a hugely -EV gamble. i think if some noob was like "i keep on taking all the action when my friend's about to fold six high preflop and making sure he doesn't fold it" most people would not have a problem with it

Re: 08 so far...

Thank god for your upswing at the end. Reading this entire thing gave me a feeling that I was going on a huge downswing, probably causing me to play differently and actually going on it. After reading the last 2 pages I feel normal again lol.

It's still explicitly against the rules. FWIW FWF IMO what you did isn't really an issue with me, but neither was the other thing.

Re: 08 so far...

My graph... (mostly nl600)




I am running 40BI under EV just in all-in pots. The all-pots is around 1-2% of the hands. What about all the other non-all-in pots?

Lets say i got KK
flop is Kx5c2c, i bet, he calls
turn 4c, i bet he calls
river 7c, check check and villian has Kx9c.

Those hands are not in my 40BI under EV graph. But I get those hands way waaaay too many times.
And yes, I could play better. But it's hard with all the bad beats.


OP did your downswing end??
So I guess at least 100k hands more for me

Re: 08 so far...

gl slugger,mainly with your state of mind,i quite dont think you can play anywhere near to your a-game with this history.

Hello Zachary,

Thank you for contacting Full Tilt Poker Support.

I did have a look at your graph Zachary, and I will admit it looks to be one of the worst I have seen. We do apologize for the bad run of cards, it appears you are experiencing.

With that being said, unfortunately we do not offer a promotional bonus for players just because they are unable to win consistently at a certain limit.

What I can offer you, should be far more valuable and rewarding though. The doom switch on your account has been turned off and it is now completely up to you, on wether or not you win or lose. Start playing with some confidence again Zachary and most importantly stay positive. I can tell by the statistics under your account that you are a decent winning Poker player.
this got me confused,and i usually dont miss irony or sarcasm

were they joking?
were you faking the mail?
wtf,heeelp and explanation please

im in a sicker than sick be stretch in my discipline.moved down a limit and keep getting fcked over and over.feeling for you.

you know in your example you would have won right? Since you have to have the Kc in your hand if he doesn't and it's not on the board.
