BTW, last week has sucked.....I got done with my moring reading, look at BofA sitting at 18.20 and was like, I need to put my stop loss in market at $18...then life got in the way, went to meetings and I completely forgot about it..Now its at $15.5 or so..Good way to lose some paper profit.

I don't mine the market pulling back right now since almost all my other equities are buy and hold, but BofA is one of my few market plays I have. (and the largest since I cost average down to $6).

Donde esta? I'm like a caveman struggling with this stuff. I should post a hand against El Nino that was just absolutely butchered because TNFT bet the wrong amount on me and he stole my manies

what lobby do you have spring...you need the "normal view" and not the classic.

Do any of the lobby views for FTP have a comprehensive filter system? I want to only be shown FR NL .25/.5 tables. Possibly with the option to add on ONLY DEEP tables
Yeah, this is doable.

Use the full lobby, or whatever its called, filter for like small stakes NL, then click "save as favorite" or whatever. Then you can click overto favorites and adjust the profile exactly how you want it.

Then you can make a couple filter for even more flexibility. You main filer is "show only fullring 50nl deep tables", for instance. But if there aren't enough of those running, you can just activate some of your other filters "show 50nl regular tables" and "show 50nl 6max tables" and "show 25nl fullring deep tables" to scout out more games. For instance.

Basically you were the dranger of the SSNL thread for the past couple of days.

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

Ok serious question

Should I be playing any freerolls or anything as part of my Iron Man? Currently I'm just saving all my medals so that one day I can buy like the $600 credit or whatever when I build up enough medals.

I think I've got "classic" because its the same lobby I used 4 years ago

McAcoy, Bonus medals IMO, or are you speaking of another freeroll?

People go back and forth on that one. From what I hear the Iron Man freerolls are really +EV if you have even a D- tourney game. I for one don't have the life situation where I can commit to playing a tourney at the beginning of each month, so I take the medals and buy cash bonuses.

Switch to "standard", then it's above the table list.

If you're even money in the MTTs the freeroll represent a better $EV. The reasons I get the medals anyway is (a) I don't have confidence in my tournament game to assume I will get my full share of equity from them (ie I suck at tournaments) and (b) scheduling (I don't feel like taking the time away from playing cash games as I don't get much time to play anyway, and my schedule is complicated so it would be hard blocking a day off every month for this).

But if you like MTTs, if you're at least decent at them, etc., the freerolls are better EV.

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

I'll see what I can do when I get home. I think I figured out a problem I was having with TNFT

I was sitting at some PL tables, and wondering why occasionally my PF bet sizing would auto-bet $1.00 instead of 3BB+1, and I think it's because TNFT only supports NL

Anyone confirm?

and this is why uNL forum is the most bestest forum on 2p2.

SSNL forum would be:
"You effin nit, why only play NL50 tables, you suck so bad, play REAL poker you dbag. Check out how great I am, here is my blog, my graph and my PTR rating. I AM AWESOME. I RULE"

MSNL forum would be:
"Fold preflop"

HSNL fourm would be:
"I just have my PA do it for me"

lol

Don't forget we have Trapz (or atleast we did)

Edit: OK guys, we should have some effing rule that everyone should have the same post per page count

...and why does FTP give the driest boards ever when I hit a hand and connected mono boards when I whiff ??? Did I miss the weekly late night ritual where we sacrifice stuff to the FTP RNG?

Speaking of being a douchebag, is it ok to berate shortstackers after sucking out on them? I recently called a SS shove with pocket 10s against his aces and won by spiking a set on the flop. He got pissed at me and I told him to go play real poker if he didn't want to be sucked out on and to buy in full and stuff.

I don't berate fish, but short stackers, yeah.

(I don't do it a lot, though. I'm typically a good natured chatter)

SSers don't count as life forms so if people wont get mad if you did your action towards a rotting pumpkin, then they can't get mad if you do it at a SSer.
