Is Full Tilt support always this bad / slow?

I sent you guys an email 4 days ago asking about this. Are you ever going to send me something besides an automated reply saying you received my email?

I guess I got spoiled by PokerStars.com's prompt support responses.

lol, it's rigged obviously. I was crying in my database last night about how badly I run and I found another one--This month I have flopped 160 flush draws, seen 123 turns and have made only 9 flushes on the turn. I made another 9 flushes on the river, but forgot to check how many rivers I saw.

Also, last night AA lost to Q9, Q2s and Q4s, so if you are a fish aiming to crack AA, the money is in ragged suited queens, apparently.

Somehow, I'm even for the month. But it's the most frustrating thing. So many droolers just begging to give their money away, but I was running completely card dead. And even when I would get AK, I could raise ten, twelve bb and get like three callers. Of course, I don't hit my A or K and I have to muck. This will easily be my worst month. Of course, when the droolers all bust, I start getting pocket As which are next to useless against nits.

The fact that TabeNinja-FT is beta and no where near as good as I need it to be and the infernal FT UI that I'm not used to puts me on tilt. Combine that with the incredible rigament I've been seeing playing on FT (nobody gave my KK AIPF 4way, KK is 51% PF, worst at SD any LOLs) I'm finding I'm tilting a lot more at FT.

Of course thinking of all the poast that go "OMG, you would not believe how badly I've been running" always helps right my keel somewhat.

Also, apparently I have an easier time beating PokerStars 50NL that I do beating 10NL or 2NL at Full Tilt. Please Taranth (TN author), save me from the horrible FT interface like you saved me from the PS client short comings!

On the tilt abatement front: turning all FT sounds off (someone suggested this in the regs thread perhaps) and listening to music or putting in earplugs has helped a bit.

As for cracking aces, I've been getting the "your AK, QQ and KK are always getting it AIPF against AA despite villain being an agro 50+/20+" thing.

Im looking for some feed back from you FR regs as to the merits of FR over 6 max ..

Im defending FR as i have too because i played it for so long ... but the arguement that FR is a better option than 6 max is pretty thin .

I can understand that FR is more appealing at $100nl plus as you can get some decent returns on bonus's / RB etc and playing a load of tables increases this nicely ..

FR at stakes of $25 or lower seems more of a grind than a lucrative proposition... i should know

But in todays FR enviroment you are faced with a shed load more short stackers, a low level of fishes and the ones that are out there are attacked by 7 regs ..

You are also faced with very nitty types from whom you simply cant make a lot of money off over time .

Does the game become an auto pilot scenario with set mining and hopefully some coolers thrown in .. ?

What about post flop decisions ... ? are they less important because players are so tight preflop ...

The FR games are so much tougher nowadays .. even down to the micro levels ...

I know its not all doom and gloom ... just want to hear some positive arguements so i can defend the merits of FR in the other forum ..

What are your goals for the future .. ? .. does every player just want to increase his hourly rate by playing more and more tables ?

Lokking forward to some decent insight into your FR thinking

cheers
I just quit 50NL 6max to play 50NL FR instead
the swings at 6 max are real killers because of all the light 3betting/4betting + more marginal situations. Its also hard to play more than 6 tables if youre still a learning player
so if youre playing to get a more steady income (less swings and more rakeback if you play 9+ tables instead of 6 tables at 6max) FR is your game
but I think FR is pretty dry at the higher levels (but 50NL and 100NL are pretty profitable)
at 6max its easier to avoid lowstackers (there will be always min 1 at your table do)
6 max is more fun do with more flops you see per minute and more bluffing...

coming from 6 max I have to say FR looks very easy (only play 3K hands)
its easier to put on ranges pre, its easier to steal and most players play pretty bad postflop and just c/f

oh and what you say about nits its no true, they are profitable in the long run because you can steal their blind all day long + they play overpairs like a set (against these players its very profitable to setmine) + very easy to assign ranges

I'm debating FR and 6max myself. I've just switched to 6max to see if I can deal with the swings. It's all about making adjustments to the game.

I'm actually up about 7 buy ins this month, but my wr is <1ptbb/100. So it's frustrating. All in EV-wise I am actually running hot, which is why I am not actually crying ITT, but rather posting some of the wow, "this is crazy variance stuff," and just marveling at it rather than complaining.

Play at the best table available. I'm not turning down a juicy non deep table because a few shorties are on it. 1 or more players are giving away money.

I have gotten all in with QQ 3 times this month; all of them were against villains 3 betting > 10% and all 3 had AA. I am doing better 4 betting 77 this month than QQ, lol.

I like to post about my run bad when it gets really bad. It helps to blow off some steam for me, but it also clues other people into looking for bad luck in places other than all in ev. When I do DB analyses for people, it helps to know whether they are running hot or cold in a bunch of different ways, so I use these filters in my coaching, too. I mean, if you are losing $$ with suited connectors, I can't say for sure you are leaking until I run this filter or have a huge sample size. Last night when I saw my SC results, I was all ready to declare them a leak and stop playing them in certain spots. Then I saw this filter results and thought, "oh, never mind then."

not even so much upset about the SS as about having to retable select half of mine every 45 mins.

Hopefully after todays session i will be back to winning.

Played a 4100 hand session and by the end of it i feel that i was playing good poker for the first time in a long time. Hopefully the trip away has let me come back refreshed.

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

I've actually been finding myself getting it in more often recently with AK and AQ. I've been so hyperaggressive in blind stealing that people are really starting to fight back. Even when I'm like four seats off. I've gotten it in preflop twice recently with AK and once with AQ. All three of those times the opponent turned up AQ.

confirmed, this is the worst. I think I lost ~1 BI during my close today, if you ever go negative on your session thanks to your last few hands, it's the pits

Yeah, this is so awful I I try my best to not let this happen. If I have had a small enough win that it is possible to lose it all playing around to the blinds, I don't play around. Also, if I have had a losing session and I am grinding back to break even, I quit as soon as I get to break even and don't play around. If I play a long break even session, I will wait to win a pot and then quit immediately after it.

Same, and I think it's very logical. The mental happiness I get from booking a win is much more important than the expected ~$2 of playing til your blinds

This isn't to say you should end sessions prematurely when you're playing well
