1) Why don't you talk at the tables?
2) I dont know if this was answered or not already, but what do you do when nature calls and your playing? Keep a lineup of spare bottles? :/

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe he has a self-imposed chat ban so he isn't tempted to chat, since it is distracting and technically pointless. And yeah, he pisses in bottles.

Ace comes off bad here and makes CR look bad by association.
I wouldn't really say AceCR is representing CRers here. He is a guest pro but beyond that title he really doesn't do anything for CRers and rarely post serious responses in the forums.

When I brought up LA in that thread at CRers Ace was quick to knock him down. Taylor actually responded and ***** slapped Ace while sticking up for LA. Please don't judge CRers by one douchebag who has almost nothing to do with the site. Cardrunners is a great site run by friendly people.

Here is what Taylor had to say in that thread. "i always laugh when i see people say things like "well the guy plays a million hands, of course he makes a lot of money." is leatherass the best player in the world? of course not. does he make more money than 99.99% of online players? yes. unless it's just good natured crap you're giving him, then i get it, otherwise, the guy is a solid player that makes a ton of money from poker...not a bad life.

tc "

LA, great job. I find your ability to grind very inspiring. Keep it up.

Yeah agree totally. I am a Stoxpoker guy obviously and a competitor of Cardrunners. Despite that I want to formally say that ace is a very very small part of Cardrunners and Cardrunners itself is an awesome site. I have the uptmost respect for all of the lead coaches games and owe part of my success to their videos. I have watched several of Stinger, Taylors, sbrugby, CTS, Peachy keen etc. videos and not only do I think they are great guys who I am very excited to meet in Vegas next week, but easily some of the best players in the world. I urge anyone who took Ace's comments and then thought poorly of Cardrunners to think again, because that is one hell of a great group of really cool/nice people.

Very very nice work... and it recharges my motivation to grind out again after a few months of slacking. Would you mind to post your stats between $1/$2 ~ $3/$6? That would definitely help ssnl players. Also, if it's possible, would you give us ssnl grinders a few key tips on moving up? Thanks a lot

Not at all. My ideal of a truly good player is one who is well rounded(good @ hu thru 9 handed), can thrive in soft games, but can also hold his own in very tough games for his limit.



Dealt to FoldTOcash [Qd Qc]
KidMagic22 folds
Leatherass9 raises to $70
FoldTOcash raises to $240
Ptalco folds
w00t4d0nks folds
Scimmietta folds
Leatherass9 raises to $615
FoldTOcash has 15 seconds left to act
FoldTOcash has requested TIME
FoldTOcash raises to $2,556.15, and is all in
Leatherass9 calls $1,462, and is all in
FoldTOcash shows [Qd Qc]
Leatherass9 shows [Jd Jc]



seems like you got that part bout misjudging range right. To anyone whos never played with you this looks standard. however QQ isn't a fistpump vs you like it is vs most. That is unless you 4bet shove Ax, because you think every button 3bet of mine has to be rags.





actually I don't think that your tight preflop strategy is a leak.

just like good2CU said- you excel at game selecting, not tilting(although I have seen it once or twice) and playing well over a lot of tables. very few people can play good over that many tables- this is a huge skill in itself.


good2cu- leatherass can make weird/spewy plays, they are just a bit more random and infrequent than most players.

to the nuthuggers- HU? sorry if I don't think another player is good(I've tried to refrain from posting my true feelings, as I don't want to be too big of a *******). maybe he thinks I suck too, thats ok. This is BBV, we all don't have to be nice. And no, the last thing I am is jealous of someone who pisses in a bottle because it saves him 20 minutes a day of extra playing time.

Hi I've never heard of you. Apparently you are Nobody.


LA - You are awesome and seem like a really nice person which is more than I can say about some people that I won't mention.(Talking directly about you AceCR9)

Yeah but comon you saw the JJ hand I mean what a fish felting that **** in that spot. Leather clearly has no clue about hand ranges. Thanks for pointing that out Acer I mean what a horrendous snap call.

Agreed.

Also, any time someone posts a single HH to validate one way or another. -- that's a cool thing to do



especially in someone else's brag thread.

EDIT: Epic brag thread

In stars options you can just turn off all chat, hard to be tempted to chat when you dont see any messages.

I've still made twice the money you have leather (from poker), and you will never ever make as much money as me. I was the ulimate grinder online before you I hope you realize that, just don't fall into the trap of being a leathermaker.

Re: TAG's Can Run Good Too! Nearly $100k in June at 5/10

FWF called me the other night to tell me about this thread and ask if I was interested. Heck no. This is leatherass' specialty (playing tons of hands over many tables at mid stakes no limit) and he is VERY good at it. I'd be hard pressed to say I was a favorite. I have a lot of respect for his game and work ethic, and on top of that he seems like a nice guy, wish him the best (but I'm keeping the 250k).

At one point this was my specialty too. If you look in the BBV archives I think I put up +100buyins in a 12 day stretch at 2/4NL and even though what he's trying to do is much tougher (tougher games) I'm certainly not interested in betting against him in that bet either. gl
