I didn't get it, and I always get min bonuses like last time around.

I think FTP hates me!

I got it, too. But I think many others got it months ago. I may have got it because I have been complaining for weeks about missing hands.

Sigh. My return to FTP's fullring games haven't been so triumphant.

20k hands basically breakeven and regulars keep owning me with these uber lines. I actually checked and hoped he would bluff with AK/AQ and valuebet TT-QQ. Well, obv not.


Full Tilt Poker $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players
The Official 2+2 Hand Converter Powered By DeucesCracked.com

Hero (SB): $10.00
BB: $2.00
UTG: $7.90
MP: $1.70
CO: $9.49
BTN: $13.70

Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with K K
2 folds, CO raises to $0.35, 1 fold, Hero raises to $1, 1 fold, CO calls $0.65

Flop: ($2.10) 5 2 7 (2 players)
Hero bets $1.40, CO calls $1.40

Turn: ($4.90) 8 (2 players)
Hero checks, CO bets $4.90, Hero raises to $7.60 all in, CO calls $2.19 all in

River: ($19.08) 4 (2 players - 2 are all in)

Final Pot: $19.08
Hero shows K K (a pair of Kings)
CO shows 5 5 (three of a kind, Fives)
CO wins $17.81
(Rake: $1.27)


btw, are NL10 and NL25 hugely nitty these days or is it just me being a nit?

depending on the villain's stats, this is either a nice hand or a pretty big mistake.

If he is tag-ish with a small vpip/pfr gap, say 12/10 or so, then you are value towning yourself to c/r the turn, as he is never calling you with a hand you beat other than maybe the combos of QQ and such that he didn't 3 bet pre.

This is a good spot to just bet the turn, reevaluating (folding sometimes and calling sometimes) when he ships over top of you. He has a lot of hands that can call a double barrel, but not much you beat that can call the crai.

OTOH, if he is on the laggy side, and might bet and then call your shove with A6, 66, 99-JJ, etc., then this is a well-played hand, imo.

The key here is analyzing the percentage of his cold calling range that is purely set mining hands here, because this board just keeps hitting a set mining range.

I have been owned pretty hard on these spots couple of times, last time I played FR regs weren't doing this so actively. The guy was 24/18/2 over 103 hands and had a habit of not being able to lay anything down preflop. When he called I just basically assumed a range of pocket pairs and AJ/AQ/AK (looking to flop the ace, not so uncommon for these games). I just cbetted with little over 1/2 pot which is standard for me. Tt's kinda weakish and when I check the turn I assumed that he is going to see it as weakness (missed overcards etc) and try to take the pot home or just valuebet weaker pairs than mine. The bet size surprised me, but I wasn't getting out of it anymore.

This whole hand is probably just useless leveling myself for NL10, considering the fact that it was only 103 hands. My 3bet stat is already on the 9% or something so I don't think this is a profitable play in the long run anyways. Probably going to just start making 3bet quite bit bigger and see if they still call (and hit set everytime).

I just realised another thing. If he doesn't like folding anything he raises the 18% has whole universum in it. So the range I was expecting widens quite bit. Obv I can't be sure.

Well, unless they ever switch from playing a minimum number of days to volume-based only, that was probably the last month I'll make Iron Man. I can easily get the points, but with a family and two small children, it was too much of a hassle to play that many days.

Questions about the end-of-year bonus: If you don't clear the whole thing, then they pro-rate you the amount you did clear, correct? And does this bonus affect MGR? At least I'll have 45 days to clear it.

I am going through one of those stretches where the 70/25 own my soul...I am always like "**** he min-raised me on the turn, is my 1 gap OP good enough to play for stacks...**** he called my squeezed with K2o, called my vbet with bottom paired and turned trips...FML.'

He's a drooler. He isn't capable of reading his own cards, let alone reading mine.

I'm not sure if it extends to the online game, but in live games if you have someone playing all of their hands, that guy is "playing napkins." Means that they dont need cards to put $ into the middle, just two pieces of paper.

I followed him to 2/4SH. He went busto in five hands. Reloaded, but only to 40BB. I had the jesus seat on him there too, but I'm not going to play out of my stakes for 40BB.

Does Texas_Crossfire post here?

I don't think I've ever been on a deep table he wasn't at.

Plays about 11/8/2.0 and mostly 16 tables at a time 50NL primarily deep.

Don't think he posts here. Have him on my tables most of the time too. Don't really mind, he plays very straight forward imo.

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

First time I've ever beat this 13/11 in a hand

Full Tilt Poker $0.50/$1 No Limit Hold'em $0.20 Ante - 9 players
UTG+1: $319.75
UTG+2: $200.00
MP1: $99.85
MP2: $164.15
CO: $216.30
BTN: $102.60
SB: $101.20
Hero (BB): $200.00
UTG: $77.40

Pre Flop: ($3.30) Hero is BB with XX
6 folds, BTN raises to $4, 1 fold, Hero raises to $13, BTN calls $9

Flop: ($28.30) 8 3 T (2 players)
Hero bets $14, BTN calls $14

Turn: ($56.30) 7 (2 players)
Hero bets $25, BTN calls $25

River: ($106.30) 8 (2 players)
Hero bets $147.80 all in, BTN requests TIME, BTN calls $50.40 all in

Final Pot: $207.10
BTN mucks 7 6

I can lose a 300BB pot and not blink. But when I win a decent sized pot, I can often feel a bit of anger/resentment/hatred/disgust. Villain in this hand is a 13/11 who has owned my soul since day 1.

I was expecting QQ or JJ to make the call on the river.
