How did such a clever guy land in Minnesota ?
Did you give up on your $50nl Full Tilt experiment or have you already moved to $100 ?

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

The stork dropped me and I've been too cautious to move since.

Yes, I'm back to 100, I didn't xfer my whole bankroll so I needed some 50 to get it back to a reasonable bankroll for 100

PTR is usually enough to decide this in 95% of such cases.

I never really got into many situationas with him cuz he was in a wierd position and never was in good spots for 3betting and etc
This looks like a fish to me. I'm still wondering why you think he's decent.

Only reason is cuz he wasn't a spew tard and was semi aggressive...saw him do a few VB where I was like hmm that was either a great VB or he's clueless (probably thought he was bluffing I guess)...

Idk it was just wierd to see a 44 vpiper that looked like they at least had some clue...

Typically these guys don't spew off chips. The ones that do are usually ones who came across a bankroll somehow and are just trying to get rid of it. These weak and loose guys are usually pretty tight PF without a hand. The best way to deal with them is to isolate with a big bet and then take it down with a c-bet. But you have to fold to pressure.

My favorite opponent type is the type who somehow decided it was smart to raise 6-7bb preflop while playing loose. So much money since they tighten up postflop.

When we first are learning to deal with SS's, we goo zomg fml they make me fold all the time

Well... in hindsight it's totally obvious that we can just throw their game right back at them, but sometimes people need a hint.
As Equus put it sadly not to many people are grasping this concept. There game can be used to crush them right back. People think you need to call them lighter because they are shoving lighter but it is the reverse. Shove against them lighter and watch them fold like babies being drop kicked at the circus.

The terms and conditions state that you can have it open while logged into FTP but not while playing on a table.

That being said I still dont do it because FTP is to ban happy for random reason.
