Jayce 24. 16 tabling 50NL, moving up to 100NL soon. Overrolled for both, but I'm a nit. Just because I'm 16 tabling doesn't mean free blinds for people on my right lol.

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

I am playing all deep 10NL and couple of 25NL at ftp usually 12-14 tabling, currently clearing my end year bonus + ironman medals cash bonus.

lately my sessions on there ended really frustrating with all set under set / AA vs KK coolerments vs regs, plus 400bb pots bbeats to the agrotards who immediately leave the table after hitting the 2 outers


Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (8 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

saw flop | saw showdown

UTG ($9.90)
Hero (UTG+1) ($10)
MP1 ($19.30)
MP2 ($11.60)
Button ($5.80)
SB ($12.50)
BB ($23.05)

Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with A, A
1 fold, Hero raises to $1.30, 1 fold, MP2 calls $1.30, 3 folds

Flop: ($2.75) 4, 9, J (2 players)
Hero bets $1.50, MP2 calls $1.50

Turn: ($5.75) K (2 players)
Hero bets $4.30, MP2 calls $4.30

River: ($14.35) Q (2 players)
Hero bets $2.90 (All-In), MP2 calls $2.90

Total pot: $20.15 | Rake: $2

Results:
Hero had A, A (one pair, Aces).
MP2 had 9, Q (two pair, Queens and nines).
Outcome: MP2 won $18.15

he actly TANKED before calling the extra 2.9$ allin

Is it possible to clear both of them with the same points simultaneously? I was thinking about doing that at the middle of the year.

Yes. Just follow the steps in the thread over in the coaching forum. It's pretty easy, but it might take a couple days for them to get everything activated. IMO it's worth it to play on FT if only to grind out enough points to get Stox for free. I'm totally loving the Ed Miller videos right now, that dude is a surrrius ballah.

Cool thanks dude. I'm low volume compared to most of the guys around here so I'm getting seriously impatient grinding out my first 5k points - switched to FT less than a month ago. I'm definitely looking forward to getting the subscription and checking the vids you just mentioned and Splits vids too.

I might have to look into this Stox Poker thing. I have a membership at DC though, so I'm not sure if it's worth it. I might just save my points up for a the plasma TV.

I've played a few of the point buy-in tourneys to try satelliting into big tournaments, but have not yet had big success. I was thinking about spending some of them on the StoxPoker thing myself.

If you look at the list of tournament sorted by buy-in ascending, the points buy-in tournaments will be at the top. They are often not populated by great players, at least not great tournament players. Certainly worth a try.

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

okay.

SN on FT: rrizgod shocking?

Over the last few months I've put in about 30,000 hands, with a large majority at NL 50. Ive begun mixing in NL100 and will probably be playing less and less NL50 due to running good and having some good tournament results as of late.

I used to play a good amount of SNGs on stars, but I decided that getting good at Cash was probably better for me in the long run. So I stopped playing on stars and came to FT for the rakeback.

As of now i play 6 tables at once on my lap top and us PT2 and HUD.

I think ive played with Sammy, but im not sure since im at work.

I play poker as for a hobby that can generate me some extra income.

Yo dudes!!

I'm a FTP reg also...I played 25nl last year but was unmotivated and broke even. I moved up to 50NL anyway because I was hugely over rolled, I'm hoping this year I can give it a good run and generate some good cash.

Current goals: Get to 11.5k FTP points for a Velor bathrobe....almost there at 9k.

Nice! I was wondering if you were a Nog fan b/c of your screen name, now your avatar seals it. Your boy got beat though! But he's a sick fighter and seemed like a good guy on TUF.

The 50NL deep tables...meh, I didn't find those to be all that different than the regular tables. That said, I always sat at the deep tables with a 100bb starting stack and could usually double up pretty quickly. For some reason, I think the 200bb stacks view you as a short stacker and getting 'committed' in the hand is easier when you've only got 100bbs and the other players have 200bbs+.
I always play the deep tables with a 200bb stack--I want to make sure to maximize my value when I stack someone.

When you play the deep tables 200bb deep, you have to change up your starting hand requirements, especially in early position. De-emphasize small pocket pairs in early position and replace them with things like AJs, KQs and KJs--people who call an early position raise are looking to flop a set and crack AA/KK/QQ; so you adapt and play a fair number of hands that can crack sets and win lovely 200bb stacks. Fun stuff.

Re: ***Official 2009 Micro Stakes FR Full Tilt Regulars Thread***

Excuse the stoopid noob question, but are the people who are buying things with points on a rakeback program that charges real money for spending points in the FT store? I'm with Rakeback Pros and am under the impression that I'd get charged half a cent per point, which makes a lot of those store items a lot less desirable. Like, all of 'em.

Ya thats where I got the idea for the name if I remember correctly....but i kinda rembered that today n changed my avatar.

Yeah he didn't look good at all against Mir, it sucks

You see any of his days in pride? He looked so good a few years ago...same with Wanderlei, they've taken too many bad beatings, even though theyre both only 32. Whereas you look at Couture who's aged really well....until his last fight anyway lol. Good to know theres another MMA fan on the forum. zthyrrr or something is a fan too.
