Since you're from a SNG background, what's the minimum edge you took when you reshoved or open shoved in an MTT. Is one BB in expected value about right to account for slightly inaccurate calling ranges?
I didn't read into the BB ev of a shove when i played MTTs. I just did it by feel.

Thanks for this! Reading different wells has led to a significant improvement in my thinking-game; it's much appreciated that you would take time for that.

Almost definitely not. I think nosebleeds are all but dead to everyone but a select few: People like durrrr who has gotten filthy rich from poker, people like the ashman who are fearless and have enough money to play them(even though prob not properly rolled for it), people like luckexpress who have gotten filthy rich from other ventures and have enough of an interest to play that high.

Multi-tabling reg opens the btn, you flat out of the blinds with A9s, flop QT5r... Its a lot to do with how your opponent percieves you and what kind of a plr he is, but that sort of flop hits ur range ok and if he is ur avg mas multi-tabler who doesnt have time to fight for pots with a good reg then go for it.

Re: The well, oldjude.

Thanks a lot for the postings
I haven't really played poker for a few years. Is it still worth it? Can I catch up the curve? Is it a better option for me to play live since it is still extremely soft? Thanks again.

Its something that is underused, but it can't just be done willy-nilly. You really have to pick good situations to do it. When doing it for value, there are situations where your opponent is likely not going to fold his hand for all the scold in china(tea).

Re: The well, oldjude.

Thanks again for making the well. I feel like my entire attitude has started to change after reading this. I feel like I've always been just trying to avoid making mistakes instead of taking lines that I think might be optimal, but would look ******ed when failed. Reading your well got me thinking that your opposite attitude might just be the key why you're so awesome and I'm stuck at mid/low.

Re: The well, oldjude.

About a year ago you were asking 2+2 if you should borrow a ton of money for your brother and pretty much everybody said don't do it.. What ended up happening?

I hear that you're capable of very aggro plays like shoving 84s pre for 100bb. I think I remember watching your vid where you got AQs in pre for 200bb. Do you make these plays in full emotional control, having paid a lot of attention to opponents and really thinking that it's the most +ev play or is tilt at least a little involved?

Do you agree with Boywonder that emotional control is the most important thing in poker? And I don't mean just not tilting, but staying out of autopilot, taking your time and focusing before every decision? How often do you find yourself autopiloting? What do you do about it?

Re: The well, oldjude.

I"ve heard a number of Irish people say 'we dont defile our guinness' or something like that in referring to car bombs. But they are so delicious!!

and for the record, you do car bombs in half pints of guin becuase the baileys will curdle so you have to chug the **** out of it quick.


for Jude:

First off, Congrats on your poker career, and even more so for just being a stand-up guy (at least as far as the internet can show)

I've been to Ireland a few times and am absolutely in love with it both the land and the people. you've got some beautiful ladies there. I intend to spend prolonged periods of time there if i can get a visa or whatnot. Galway is probably my favorite place thus far, but what do you consider to be the best town/city/area in Ireland?

also, how hard is it for an american to live/move there? (if you know =p )

What's your favorite hobby/funtime? play guitar or instruments or anything blahblah etc

How do you deal with having 'poker player' be a part of your identity? have you ever have any trouble getting back to basics? (the way you were pre-poker, ego-wise or just where you put your values in life)

Despite financial security, do you think poker has had a overall positive or negative influence on your life/life outlook?

Who or what do you emulate or strive to be like/become? (kind of vague on purpose, just curious)

If you ever come to NY and want to chill or check out the nightlife, My time is yours. It's the least i can do for all the hospitality your people have shown me.

Take care
Evan

Definitely for the most part i do it because either a)i think its the most +ev play or b)I think that what i learn from it will be +ev in the long run.

I think its a huge part of being a successful professional, maybe the most important part.


How often do you find yourself autopiloting?

Not very often at all, and almost never at stakes that matter to me.


What do you do about it?

Quit.
