BRAG+BEAT TLDR: I just played Taylor Caby HU4ROLLZ...lost...but learned valuable lesson :)

Hey guys, So today I was just doing my usual 12 tables of 50nl grind, and then I decided to watch Taylor Caby play some HU, he was playing $10/$20. I decided to ask him a question. So I asked him something along the lines of, I am a huge nit and I've been breaking even at 50nl for like 2 months and I hate my life, got any tips for me? Then he said that I should do something really crazy, and that the adrenaline rush of it, would give me a new outlook on life. Well, I took his advice to heart, and I said to him something along the lines of, "Okay, So you mean I should play you HU for my entire bankroll?"

He said something like, "yeah you should, it would be a good experience for you" or something like that. So then I sat down with the $1400 i had in my fulltilt account and I started playing. He had a $12k stack lol... My heart was pounding at first, then I won like a $600 pot with a rivered quads, which I should have bet more on the river but meh, he prolly woulda called more but I figured $100 would get called by most of his small/med pairs. I coulda got away with like $175-$200 tho....But I wasn't thinking clearly obviously, was just trying hard to not play scared. Then I didnt get any cards for a while, he light 3bet me a few times, after a few hands I was getting short and raised it up with QT, flop was KKx, I cbet, he called, turn was J, and at this point I have a pot sized bet left on the turn and decided its my last hope and I have to shove, I expected to have at least some fold equity, plus I have the oesd. He calls, and has KJ for the nuts and I'm drawing dead.

So I lost, but I feel so much better now. I have a new outlook on life, just like he said. I had a taste of how it feels to play high stakes, and to be honest...once you get into it, the dollar value doesn't really affect you mentally. I found it just felt like I was playing with chips and I didn't think about the actual dollar value of what was happening. It was a great feeling.

In the end, he asked me if that was actually my entire BR on the table, and i said yes it is, he said "really are you sure???" and I said, "Yes, I took your advice to heart and thanks for the match". Then he said "wow, ok I'm gona send you $1k back, and he shipped me $1k and said "be smart with it and don't do anything stupid like that again". LOL I guess I'm grateful that he gave me $1k, but to be honest, I knew before hand that if I lost, it was gonna be ok.. because as soon as I sat down at the table, I knew it was going to be an important experience, and I felt like I had to do it. I decided before hand that I was going to play until I either busted, or took his stack. If I lost, I was gonna have to quit poker for a while and go get a job, but I would have a great experience, OR I would win a few $K and learn a lesson. Either way I'm happy. I just felt like sharing this story with you guys.

Cliffs:

-Asked my favorite CR pro Taylor Caby for advice on how to stop being such a life nit.
-He tells me to do something crazy because it will get my adrenaline going and it will give me a new outlook on life.
-I take his advice to heart and decide to play him hu4rollz
-I lose but have fun experience and learn valuable lesson

Why did you assume that when he said "do something crazy" that something was to play him heads up for your entire bankroll? I would have gone and fought a bear or something.

Re: BRAG+BEAT TLDR: I just played Taylor Caby HU4ROLLZ...lost...but learned valuable lesson :)

I played with you at NL50 FR today.

You led pre, and I hit a set of fours on the flop and you called my raise. I misclicked and checked the Ar turn (Agh!) and then the third spade came on the river also making the board A2345. I was kind of panicked over my mistake and was chatting to my friend, playing a bunch of other tables at the same time. So when you bet the river, I donk shoved hoping that maybe you'd put me on a flush. At worst, I just figured we were going to split.

You had a flush.

Then you did something I thought only d-bags did. You said, "lol thanks."

If I said lol ty when you rejammed there then im sorry lol dont take it personally.
