Brutalisk on WPN is bot or not?

Since the Joeyingram Videos, almost all of the Russian accounts on HU have disappeared, except Brutalisk who plays like all the other russia accounts, same buyin amount, etc...

The 6max tables for like 2 days were a fish fest but now russian accounts seem to be coming back.

Re: *******HU CASH Regs thread*******

Is HU still profitable at 50NL or is it mostly dead?

I've played about 10k hands and I've inched my way up to around 6bb, can the games still be crushed or is that close to as good as it's going to get?

Playing on PP right now, so maybe there are other options?

I'd love to get feedback from reggish players.

What were the longest stretches of negative or break even you experienced? I'm down a few buyins at 50NL hu on Stars, but maybe it's just a small sample. What was your worst 5k hands in that sample?

Re: *******HU CASH Regs thread*******

What monitor do you recommend for HU?
I use 2 monitor, one is 27 inch and the other one 24 but I find them too small.
I use both at same time obv, and use more the 27 inch wich is 16:9 but don't really like (don't seems big enough, the 24 is 16:10 but I use less).
Thanks for any advice

I have a 32 inch curved Samsung that I use for my tables, fits 9-12 pretty well depending on the site and a 24 inch that I use for lobby's/ overflow tables.

I am playing 6m PLO now. Developed a good tool for learning 6m with monker results. Not much, just aiming for 10k-15k hands a month.
Living in the states now busy with having a life haha. Idk $1-2 a hand? If I can cover living expenses with poker related stuff (which shouldn't be hard, ain't trying to be a baller) then I'd be happy. Also I may play live some soon.

Nice. That's crazy you can still extract that from online games. Do you still see value on sites like ACR for 6m?

Sorry if I replay only now (been busy), not full size but I prefer big enough. I often play 2 tables, but sometimes 4-5 also and I prefer a big hud readable...

I do the same thing for the 24 inch, I rarely play on that. What are your impression on the curved monitor? Do you think is better?

Re: *******HU CASH Regs thread*******

Hey I thought i'd introduce myself on 2+2 I'm a new member.
Intro:

I've played online since 2010, on and off.
But didn't really start playing until last year just before the ban happened in australia.

Now I frequent a site called ignition that allows australians to play.
its either that or ACR which i'll get to in a moment.

For the past 3 months I've been playing HU games on ignition.
I won't play any higher then 5nl sometimes I one table it sometimes 2 and the rare occasion 3, most people buy in for min with the occasional playing buying in for max or half.

My problem is i'm the only reg.

Every day I wake up at midnight and jump on from 12am to 12pm I'm at the computer I don't have much of a life because I'm a disability pensionenr so I'm always at the PC in between waiting for games I clean the house and eat or play flash games on the PC.

Since I'm the only reg, I can literally sometimes be waiting any where from 5 minutes to 3 hours for a game even though I play at peak times.

Even weekends are dead, so back to ACR I'm thinking of starting a small bankroll on there and playing but I like ignitions anonymity because people come and donk of a stack or hit and run and never get to know my name.

Some days I can go from -$30 to +100 playing but the average day is like $20 USD for all the time i'm online haha.

What do you guys think, should I start a small roll on ACR?
I See they have HU games, when I'm bored im legit playing spin n gos on ignition or flash games.

there's quite a few players on ignition but being the only person that frequents this stake is insane.

Half the time my buy in is like $5 and i'm up 50c then they leave if they BI for min

So I have to close the table and open another... It honestly gets quite boring but I take it as since I'm the only one I've got no competition and repeat games against opponents I'm going up against people that come and go and no one knows who I am or knows if they are vsing me again.

todays been really bad I've been here for 8 hours and I'm only up $9,
some guy 3bet to 11bb after BI for max 3 times in a row I snapped him with A7, spiked a 7 he ended up having 43 and barreled for pot and I jammed on him and he snapped with a OE.

It's like this every day man.

Sometimes when I'm bored I watch ACR HU games lol but they don't seem as spewy as my games are.

P.S I use a 24" for the games and keep them on a side 17" while I play flash games while waiting for tables to pop https://gyazo.com/5e7a0f43e838def0014b774ece77df45

Re: *******HU CASH Regs thread*******

Do you have your exact results and how many hands played? I always thought heads-up is pretty much unbeatable at 10NL and lower because rake is too ridiculous in bb/100.

I don't use a hud or a tracker if you're talking about me its pretty pointless on ignition. + I find huds **** your gameplay up if you're just 1-3 tabling you don't need a HUD IMO but a tracker of results would be nice.... like bb/100

I think I'm beating it single table like $2 an hr when I have an opponent.
rake is around 3c every 2 hands thats hands that don't even play out then when I get into a pot its like 60c-$1 rake for the whole pot if its a $10 pot.

edit: I think I've played about 45k-50k hands in 3 months

its not unbeatable. I used to play NL4 at Ipoker when i had no roll. however if you're battling regs on these stakes all the time you're an idiot.

you gotta remember the ppl that play these limits are very very special.

Im really struggling with the rake at these stakes like its a joke il get caught doing a bluff early on stack myself then lose a flip, and even after gettin full stacks off the guy a few times half the time im down money because what he took off me got eaten by the rake its a joke, like i have to beat people quickly n if i make a mistake im pretty much ****ed it seems

you should be grinding your opponent down in the average hands so when you flip you already have a gap of a few dollars on him so you are getting in for less to win more and if you lose its even.

btw; playing HU you don't really want to flip unless you know 100% its a flip and you have put in at least 5% of your starting BI into the pot sometimes you can fold.

I find myself playing around my opponents tendencies, for example his always 5x raising every 2nd hand pre, i limp into him with a-rag or a-q for example and he 5x's and barrels every time I end up stacking him with middle or top pair when his got an average hand.

I'll post a few gifs of my games lastnight this is how I make most my money against bad players then when I get it in with PREM hands vs PREM hands I'm gold still.

at 10nl and under these are the plays that are happening - keep in mind you don't see the whole game so you don't understand why they are stacking me with such hands...

https://gyazo.com/59b539a35fde94c1db1fca000a420420
https://gyazo.com/9a3a55eecf65bc3177dd7ef3a471dfb7
https://gyazo.com/fef267faf7ba5cf5d343558a4a4142e8
https://gyazo.com/920eaa4c8731005ad4038920f5e6ae4e

this happens all the time so I'm always taking advantage of bad hands in certain spots.
because the average hand you get dealt is q7 and the average game goes for 30-100 hands you need to play a wider range and know when your opponent is gonna stack into you.

but please keep in mind you didn't see the other 30+ hands I played against x-opponents. Maybe I might record a few sessions and post it here so you can see what I'm up against.

Re: *******HU CASH Regs thread*******

I've found another 5nl HU reg on ignition.

he plays between 6pm-2am australian syd time

he always joins with $5 and raises 5x 70% of hands.

I keep catching him and bleeding him down his stacked into me 3 or 4 x in about 200 hands I've played with him.

because I'm the only one sitting at the HU tables I wait for people to join.

he always joins and leaves when he sees me BI for $5.

in the past 10 minutes his tried to open his own table 15 times.

buying in then leaving when he sees me.

I always have two empty tables up so I get the players against me that just come to donk of a min or half BI.

This guy refuses to play me, even though its anonymous I know its him.

and he knows its me. He never alters his play, it is always the same standard lines he takes and I stack him with mediocre hands and fold his PREM he snapped QJ of into my aces and turned a set 6 hands later I had stacked him with average hands for $10 lmao now he won't play.
