Re: The well, oldjude.

Do you think it's possilbe to still have an 'ah ha' moment in poker after close to a million hands/3 years of playing?

I'm a marginal winner and have tried all kinds of things (fewer tables, shorter session, more aggression, less aggression etc) I consider myself a better player than I was 18 months ago, however the results never really change.

Also.

What sports do you follow?

3 favourite bands?

Cheers for doing this, gl for the future.

I don't autopilot. I think most regs would be doing themselves a favour if they played less tables. And don't be afraid to experiment with weird lines.

I remember reading once you don't do much game selection?

Yes. I think this is the biggest reason i moved up in stake so fast. When i sit down to play a session i just join a bunch of waitlists and get on the 1st ones that open.

a few years ago, i forget why but some people i knew just started calling me oldjude and the nickname stuck.

I think cork is a pretty sweet county, nice people. Or galway, excellent night-life.

HU, FWF, Sauce, and isildur. I think for 6m, irock is very very creative and tricky, same goes for stork.

I grind 3/6 and 5/10 because they are the only games that run regularly, i play 10/20 whenever its running. I'm about to buy a house so you probably won't see me at 25/50+ anytime soon.

You said you've never bumhunted, to what extent do you game select?

Like i say, i just get on waitlists and sit when they open, i never sit out when the fish does. If there is a game running with like stork, roland, derek and sauce i might just pass thats as far as i go.

When he ships i was like 'aw f***, oh well, guess i'll time down an fold' then as so often happens when i time down an fold, a little devil appeared on my shoulder an started telling me to look again. I just thought i had a good read on him that he was pretty good and saw me as a huge lag and would just bluff-catch with all his Qx, 8x and obv all his 6x hands, so i thought he had to have T9 or 97 or if i got unlucky he might be bluffing with the best hand, Ax or a small PP. But i turned out to be right and it felt good, the river bricking was the icing on the cake.

I would say its possible for sure. I haven't had one in a long time.

I'm a marginal winner and have tried all kinds of things (fewer tables, shorter session, more aggression, less aggression etc) I consider myself a better player than I was 18 months ago, however the results never really change.

Sorry dude . I think as long as you're leaving your mind limber and trying out different ways to improve there isn't much else you can do.

Also.

What sports do you follow?

I love horse-racing. Football is awesome, both to play and to watch. I don't follow any other sports.

3 favourite bands?

Creedence, The band, cat stevens.

Cheers for doing this, gl for the future.

thanks.

Re: The well, oldjude.

I had a poker story written out but since no one has asked i guess i'll just post it.

I started at 18 when i moved in with 2 friends. We started with $5 live sng's an after the first time playing i knew i would become completely obsessed with the game. I have always become obsessed with any strategy game like chess, scrabble and any card game with a skill element, i've also always loved to gamble.

We progressed to a €20 live pub tournament every week, we played that for about 6 months before we started frequenting a card-room, Favourites, in Maynooth. That's where i started splitting my time between online and live. I would win just enough live to play online and then just lose it playing .25/.50 or shortstacking 1/2 .

I found sng's and was able to beat them right off the bat, mainly cos i was just the biggest nit on the planet, the average opponent i faced was playing about 37/10 i was playing about 15/13 . I decided i was a winning player and quit my job as a carpenter to play poker full-time, truth is i wasn't nearly ready, and i only had about a €1k BR.

I lost my BR and then decided it would be a clever move to borrow €1000 from the bank to play poker with, i did, i lost that too. I decided to swallow my pride and go back to work, i did and payed off my debt, i still played poker but stuck to sng's. I started building a roll again and got a few scores in some MTTs. I had about €10k saved up after about 7 months back at work and i was now convinced that i had turned a corner and i was good enough to play professionally.

So i quit my job again and took it very seriously. I progressed through the sng ranks quickly and was eventually playing $500 and $1K SNGS, I also started playing MTTs alot more and was holding out for a big cash. I eventually got one when i finished 4th in the wednesday 6m 100rb on ftp for i think $12k. I then started playing tournies fulltime, and in february of 08 i won both $100 re-buys pon ftp and stars, and finished 2nd in the sunday 500 on stars for $69k, on the whole it was a $100k week.

I was delighted and decided this would be a good chance to migrate to cash games. That had been my aim from the start because i knew the best in the world were cash-players and i wanted to join them. I started at 2/4, was waaay overrolled but dared not play higher cos my post-flop game was so terrible. It took a long while for me to learn to beat 2/4 and 3/6 but beat them i did. The rest i think you guys can check out on my blog. http://www.leggopoker.com/blogs/oldjude/

I have a mangiiiinnnaaaaa.

Jude, before when I asked about game selection I was mainly referring to HU since I assume you'll play anyone at midstakes 6max. Say you're playing HU (how much do you play HU?) will you play almost anyone who sits at your 10/20 table?

Re: The well, oldjude.

What times in Ireland do u find is best for HU action? (just wondrin ur opinion)
Were ur family supportive of your intention to play poker?
Finally, taking out a 1k loan to play poker is massive- how/why did u have so much faith in ur game that early?- pretty amazing.
