Full Tilt Poker $200 + $10 Heads Up No Limit Hold'em Tournament - t10/t20 Blinds - 2 players

BTN/SB: t1185 M = 39.50
Hero (BB): t1815 M = 60.50

Pre Flop: (t30) Hero is BB with A 9
BTN/SB raises to t40, Hero raises to t130, BTN/SB calls t90

Flop: (t260) A 5 3 (2 players)
Hero bets t215, BTN/SB raises to t760, Hero raises to t1685 all in, BTN/SB folds

Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

yeah i agree mers it's quite a boring viewpoint but it's one that plugs a lot of leaks.

like this isn't an attack on you, but you say you've blown $3k playing super turbos? why not just keep the $3k in your back pocket surely that would stop you from burning out once you bought some new clothes or took your women out, filled ur car with some GAS or w/e.

i just think once you start playing games where your edge is reduced and start spewing for the sake of spewing all that stuff spills over into your husng game and you just can't play your best. or for me this is what i found.

like if it's ok to spew off like a ****** playing $6 turbos whilst drunk then it's ok to do the same when you're trying to win a $100 husng a day later. although you know otherwise your mind sorta finds it hard to switch on and off between the two.

anyways each to their own

First of all, most of that was from NLHE HUSNG super turbos that they had before FTOPS 9. I feel quite confident I had an edge in them. It's incredibly results oriented to say "why did you blow $3k playing them?" By choosing to play, I accepted a range of outcomes. That was one of them. I'm easily up lifetime in non-HUSNG poker ventures and playing some other form of poker while taking a break from the regular grind while being +EV (or even neutral EV, heaven forbid) is more defensible than clicking through this massive thread and looking at a lot of tits and nobody's calling that a waste of EV.

It's also ironic that you're insta-passing on playing 2+2ers at the stake of your choosing, because hey, you know what makes you make a lot more money? Getting better. That's why I like to play people in this forum from time to time and not just monotonously focus on fish. It's fun, it's interesting, and it makes me a better poker player. I like playing nathan a lot because I know he's better than me and I want to learn more about how. I could pay him for coaching or, assuming he does have an edge on me, I could play him for $10/hour effective. I easily get it back from what I learn from him.

If you don't need to play other types of poker once in a while to keep the game fun and interesting, cool. And yeah, I agree with you, when it comes down to it the biggest reason I play poker is the money. But that doesn't mean indulging myself in the game theory of 2-entry satties down to 3 left or brushing up on my uncomfortably good razz game means I'm bragging about being degen. It means I actually enjoy playing and am enough of a nerd to use poker to take a break from poker.

bit vein for you to assume you could teach me isn't it?

i generally post hands and discuss with the people of this forum. although i'm up for playing and discussing stuff with you mers.

my original point was that personally i just play the games i have the biggest edge in at all times. if you wanna play super turbos that's your choice man. i'm not calling you out.

i simply made the comment that super turbos are for degens and red pros and i felt your response was like an ego call out.

if you were simply asking me to play so we could both improve then i'm good with that and i'd very much like to play with you or nathan or anyone else.

those superturbos are seductive. i have gotten soul raped in those myself. it's the 100 chip ones that have ****ed me. i think i am up in the 300 chip ones, but i would be way way down except i had a huge score in the $117 300 chip superturbo mtt. well huge score for me anyway.

i had to do a self semi-ban on those. i will still play them but just a little.


why are superturbos only for red pros and degens? i am not a red pro so what does that make me?

Red Pros get 100% RB and an hourly rate to play, like $35 or something. Makes it a little easier to beat any game IMO.

Some Caps fans were sitting next to me. One of them made eye contact with me and is randomly like "I WAS TALKING TO THAT ****ER AND YOU KNOW WHAT HE DOES FOR A LIVING?" I say "what". He says "HE PLAYS ****ING POKER LOLOL!" and i was like uhhhh...

So yeah, pretty amazing that that dude even said that to me bc I had no idea what Croix looked like and vice versa. Pretty funny stuff.

After the game they life-tilted people outside and I don't know how they didn't manage to get annihilated by a mob of angry Caps fans.

The end.
lolololol... sounds pretty standard to me

Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

lol just yell "pair the board!" when villain is drawing while being all-in that really helps imo lmao (don't do it with the hand i just posted i still need to come up with a good sentence when you want to brick turn/river)

and fwiw, i usually flop quads and get stacks in... yesterday twice with J6 on 666 vs A7 and KQ vs 33 on KKK board and stuff like that
in april i even got it in with 55 on 55JQx vs TT which was lol imo
people always think i'm bluffing quads <3

Edit: and TakeHerOnACruise, yeah i post more brag than whine hands that's true but that doesn't mean i'm running super hot; i'm running 3-4k under ev in all-in equity in may atm but i can deal with tilt pretty well and am tilted close to never lately

Re: ****May LC Thread****NSFW

anyone have good numbers on hourly wage comparisons between sng stakes and cash game stakes? taking into consideration waiting time, etc? i would think someone like pasterbator or rumnchess should know this since i think they've both played both to some extent but this is easier than typing multiple PMs.
