Re: Normal BB/100?

So you play within your limits and don't go broke, something I didn't do before.

ez i for one believe ur sessions are very real, i just know it wont last, yoru just running hot which is hugely inflating your confidence, the downswing will hit and the hot cards will stop. and you are rly in for it

you wont even understand ho its happening because you are a realtivly poor player, u make bad calls all the time and the cards are just falling right for you.
Hov, I play great postflop. Give me an example when I made some bad calls. Were the hands you had with me from after 6/20 when I greatly improved my game?

That's still a great session, and OP is probably even a winning player...
It's just so much more realistic with that red thrown in there from time to time. This is the first appearance of red this entire thread.
Why'd you do it to yourself, OP? Say it ain't so!
Hi Chump Change. Great Question. I learn about my players pretty quickly. I did have a session where I only had around 7 or 8 bb/100 at 200. I also played 400nl and had I forget, it's somewhere on this thread. About 20 bb/100.

That was my worst session so far since the inception of this thread.

Re: Normal BB/100?

I have 82 hands on OP. This is where he stacks me. From some of the other hands, it does appear some of what he says is true. He looks like a donk preflop, but he can definitely handle himself postflop.

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $ BB (5 handed) Hand History Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: 2+2 Forums)

Hero ($277.95)
MP ($200)
Button ($208.90)
SB ($167.85)
BB ($260.38)

Preflop: Hero is UTG with 4, 4. SB posts a blind of $1.
Hero raises to $7, 2 folds, SB (poster) calls $6, BB calls $5.

Flop: ($21) A, 4, 6 (3 players)
SB bets $19.65, BB folds, Hero calls $19.65.

Turn: ($60.30) 9 (2 players)
SB bets $68.29, Hero calls $251.30 (All-In), SB calls $72.91 (All-In).

River: ($452.80) 2 (2 players, 2 all-in)

Final Pot: $452.80

Results in white below:
SB has Js 9s (flush, ace high).
Hero has 4c 4h (three of a kind, fours).
Outcome: SB wins $342.70. Hero wins $110.10.

Re: Normal BB/100?

I just tried to add him to my buddylist and PP says that ID doesn't exist. Did he really change his ID already?

Re: Normal BB/100?

Hi Bdaws,
it's LLLIII_LLLII. By the way, this is weird. Maybe it's one of the corrupted party files that transferred, but I only have 81 hands on you. There's pokertracker for you. You know, it's possible my bb/100 is much lower than I stated since pokertracker gets a few errors here and there. You never know. Wondering is what gives me hope that one day I'll make some money.

Three L's, three I's, three L's two I's. They told me I can't change my name since I just changed it not too long ago. They said it's 6 months.

I quit the game people found out my SN. Going to play on a different site now.

What's the problem? Most of the best players' IDs are known, and they continue ripping the games

Re: Normal BB/100?

FWIW in my thus far brief forays into cash LLLetc was not somebody I really wanted at my tables.

It's funny though, I came into this thread figuring this was a nice troll and then went 'whoa'. nh.

Re: Normal BB/100?

BTW, it was wrong of me to post pictures of another poster. I apologize. That was low of me, and I won’t do it again. Though I did have a good laugh when the funny question was asked if I had ever “talked to a girl.” Those are typical battle.net (the server that hosts Starcraft) comments which everyone knows is not true but everyone says anyway.

Unoriginality kills me. As I stated, usually I'm pretty mellow. But personal attacks are unwarranted. I didn’t start them, but I did contribute to personal attacks. Again, I will probably not do that again.

But to laugh that I'm an English Major? Who cares? What were you? Do you go to a decent school? I love LA. I picked this school based on location. I love the beach. Pretty girls. But a lot of shallow ones, too. I'm picky, and you may note that the girls I date are GREAT looking, cool, smart, etc. Liucipher didn’t say I never dated a model. He just couldn’t vouch for it, since I haven’t seen him since I visited Yale in 2003. He lives on the east, I live on the west.

I try to improve my weaknesses and make them my strengths. For Spearfishing, it requires a good breathhold, smooth diving, and good equipment (which I now sell through my business).

For wrestling, conditioning, strength, and technique are imperative to win consistently. Sure, one may have a lucky pin (just like a lucky preflop 27 offsuit vs AA and win), but in the long run, these are the three elements that are critical to success. One never has a lucky “technical fall,” which is beating the opponent by 15 points or more in collegiate wrestling, at which time the match is ended (like a mercy rule).

I started the UCLA Wrestling team which is now sanctioned by the National Collegiate Wrestling Association (They used to have a D1 team but due to funding[read: title IX], they dropped it). In my inaugural year I coached and captained the team, qualified 6 people to nationals (in Texas). I was seeded 4th and had a bye the first round. My friend’s scale was off and I had a bad weight cut. The morning of, I was to weigh under 149, but I weighed 146. I was dehydrated, had no energy, and it showed in my performance right before the medal round. I was beating the kid 4-1 (two takedowns, I let him up for one point). But I lost. It was a real shame because that year I wanted to All-American.

But I learned a couple things from it: I’ll probably carry a scale with me next time I travel, and here is another thing I learned. There’s so much more money to be made in business than in poker. A friend of mine was nice enough to let me stay at his house and taxi me to and from the airport, drive me to Uof T for the tournament, etc.
(Wow his Dad is rich), they live across the street from Ross Perot. It's really cool, actually, the estate(Perot’s) just lengthwise is blocked by a gate and I think was over .2 miles long, not to mention very VERY deep. His place is huge.

For poker, solid bankroll, knowing your opponents, finding good games, etc. To be honest, in the past I would run real bad at a specific table and say "Since I've been getting bad cards, good ones must be coming." I would stay, and get frustrated, and go on tilt. Whatever. I've controlled that better now.

Anyway, the reason I took English at UCLA was twofold: I got a 790 in English on the SATII out of 800 so I just checked the box when applying to UCLA. But, if you have taken this subject test, you know that it only tests grammar and MINIMAL writing. My writing was NO GOOD. I wasn't confident in my writing abilities; I wanted to learn to write better, so I chose English. And...duh dum...duh dum...Who doesn't like reading stories, then arguing about it(Yep, who woulda thought I sometimes like to argue .

I have a personality of picking out things. I went to the Mirage, the new dealer opened up the two set of cards (it comes in a box), spread it out (I forget what this is called) and then was about to shuffle and deal and I said to the table, "It's missing a 7 of diamonds." He went through the deck and sure enough it was. People said, "good eyes." I pay attention. The 7 of diamonds was in the other deck somehow.

Anyway, I have enough time being an English major to do things I want to do. I will be honest. English MAJOR is boring to me. But, it gives me time to do other things I LOVE. Just like I don’t feel Poker and Money(as I stated earlier) is everything. I try to balance my life. While being in the “English major,” I wrote a proposal and bought out 50% of the spearfishing business for a great deal.

Anyway, the point of this post was to state that I am NOT perfect. But, I work on my weaknesses, which was the impetus for my purchasing of Pokertracker in the first place. I really, REALLY didn’t want to spend money for software, but, if it was going to help me make money, the people behind it were(and are) HONEST, and the customer support was GOOD, I would have no problem doing it and I would do it again.

Honesty is very important to me.

No hard feelings and my apologies to people that I attacked.

Cheers,

-eezspear

so flopping a flush and callign an all in turn raise is an example to show off his great postflop play?

these types of hands are exactly why he is running hot, calling with anything pre flop and people getting strong 2nd best hnds v him. when the cards stop falling his way he will find out his true skill level. id be interested to see what his winrate is in 150000 hands.

edit - im sure calling with j9s from a blind v a preflop raise isnt profitibly unless your a world class player playing at a table full of monkeys.

I included the hand of me getting stacked because I thought it would be slightly humorous. I was not defending his postflop play with that specific hand. I later commented that from the other 81 hands it does appear as though he has a good handle on postflop play.

Re: Normal BB/100?

Since I was busy clearing up things, changing sites, working out, and eating, I didn't play much. Some may say they play 1000 hands an hour. That's great. More power to you. I don't have the desire to (yet). Quality over quantity.

This is my 7/10

Re: Normal BB/100?

Hey guys,

I played some hands for 5 minutes today. I ended up making some money, but I need to ask - is my BB/100 pretty good? I don't know. Sometimes I can just wave my hands around really fast then slap myself in the face a bunch of times, and my opponents cards just appear to me like some wierd vision. Even when my eyes are closed. Here are my stats for thismorning:



I guess it was okay. But not as good as veal scallopini, I love that stuff. Sometimes you just gotta go for the goal, and I think that marscaponi and liver sauce is okay for that. Its just about believing in yourself. I also told her that I wasn't really into Def Leppard, and she seemed to understand ok.

The thing is though, I got knocked out in the semi's and it was totally not fair. I had double faulted twice, which I agree, was my bad. But then this guy served one right on the line, but I knew it was out, so now I'm gone. But I walked over and asked the floor manager if there was a dessert buffet, and he just winked at me like "right on, brotha", so then I was happy.

So anyways, follow your dreams. You can reach your goals, I'm living proof. You know the rest.
