i have a rock solid reputation, great references, multiple WSOP cashes, good online results, sunday major FTs, etc. and i wasnt able to sell out my WSOP action last year at 1.3 (at less than 1.3 it wasnt worth it for me to go)... only sold to a couple of my friends who were high stakes ballers and didnt really care too much about the money. other than that no one wanted any. i even took tons of heat for asking for over 1.2, much less 1.3.

the poker economy is not good right now unless you are a GOAT at the game.

yea and not being friends with anybody at all, not one single person, in the poker communtiy works against me (except a week long stake from augie for 180s which ended on black friday then meeting a few mtt heros here and there in my travels...)

csb time: i met randallin the night he won the barcelona wpt and that night went with him sootedjokers trambopoline and negroblanco to a foam party. as we're walking up to the party i ask negroblanco where hes from and what his name is and we deduce that he's actually my second cousin and we had attended the same family reunions in the past. csb? csb, imo

Did you apply to get on the Max Katz glory train? He bought all the action I wanted to sell at 1.3, granted I had just came off a SCOOP victory, but he looked like he was pretty much just grabbing action at that rate from everyone good.

i tried but no dice. to be fair, though, i submitted much later than most and i think my offer to him was something like 1.25 for all the side events and 1.45 or something for the ME, which might have been what made him balk (altho it evened out to roughly 1.3 in the end).

this was even considering i had sold 20% of my action already to brian hastings and kathy liebert (i thought this would help but it certainly did not haha). they are both friends and sort of just bought without really too much concern for #s and all that. (plus, what's it to them)

my sample size online just wasnt big enough (altho i had a very good 2010) and while i have some WSOP cashes and a mega deep run, i didnt have a huge live record.

i will say, however, that if i had done this in 2010 i would have sold at 1.3 lightning fast. (i had a backer for all my WSOP action in 2010). but this ain't 2010 anymore.

Yeah, I think he probably did balk when you separated the two, it probably would have been better to just write it as 1.3 for everything, or w/e unless you were trying to work some angle to have him say yes to the side **** and not the main on purpose. I got every event I wanted to play which most of it was pretty easy 1k-2500 wsop ****, but I got the 2500 triple chance and all the 5ks too and those were obv significantly harder events and pretty much the only reason I wanted to sell any action anyway, probably would have just own dimed it if it was ME and all 1k-1500s. The only thing I missed that I wanted to play was the 10k 6m which I forgot to put on my schedule for w/e reason and he just decided not to let anyone amend once they got there considering he had 100+ people to deal with. I was a small loser over like 50k of buyins but he was still pretty eager to ask me to play next year or sell **** in European events (lol at spending like 2-2.5k to travel to a single 10k event though).

ANYWAY now I get to tell a Kathy Liebert CSB:

So, basically, like 80% of the tv pros I've played with aren't that impressive to me, make a number of fundamental errors, sizing mistakes, but Kathy played pretty well/decent the times I played with her if pretty tight, although I guess that's just due to the structure, or w/e.

CSB story 1: Some $1500 event in which I play 5 hands with her before the table breaks and I get there as someone berates her for something she does and calls something an easy assumption, to which Kathy responds "a lot of easy assumptions are wrong. Many people think its an easy assumption that I'm a lesbian but I'm not", which almost made me spill my redbull.

CSB story 2: the next time I play with her its in some $2500 event I think I opened KJ in the cutoff and some dude shipped like 7bb on me post antes, so obv I call and he rolls over tens and I win the flip. Kathy starts just snap chatting me up and calling me Mr. Smiley and I must smile so much because I win flips, and then she is like, ofc its not like he had many chips, guess you'd have to call with pretty much everything aside from like a 7/8 or something, and I am like 100% sure by the way she asked me she was trying to bait me into saying something like "78 would be a call given stacks" or talk about pot odds or mathematics or w/e so she could confirm her read that I was an internet player (I'm 29, so I don't look like the stereotypical college young gun). I mean I just said something like jack king off is my favorite hand and my favorite hobby and made her crack up (she pretty clearly likes the dirty/offbeat humor after playing with her), but at the time I was impressed at the fish for information.

Also, I have pretty much zero results of note in what is now 3 full wsops and two half-assed ones (I mean I cashed a few times to be around breakeven overall but w/e) so I dunno how huge of a consideration that is for him if you are otherwise well referenced with good online results.

What's with terrans crying about toss so much? Pros who whine need to provide their own balance suggestions (if they fancy themselves as game designers), but mostly should just suck it up

toss HT and collusus are just fookin op,

I been dreaming about beating toss recently and have new build... 11 11 rax only has a few counters and I'm gonna start using it as my open in every matchup because it kind of forces the opponent into a narrow range of builds or they lose (which works wonders at my level because no one seems to scout/react properly) whilst winning alot of them or doing some good damage regardless i.e nexus first, if they do them, then double expand and get 2 ghosts + 6 vikings + bunkers asap and then it may actually be a fair game. if they don't go coll then the vikings are still good for scout or mineral patch harras, but I'm starting to realise that in TvP you need to get to 3 base and you need ghosts, every game, ghosts are the answer.

you know, mt. fish, why don't you just try to play a macro game vs. protoss? or not even a macro game, but at least try to just win it in mid game off 2 bases? you seem to be obsessed with doing this 1 base stuff.

He'll be forced to go for a build that includes sentries, thus narrowing his range immensely!

Aren't you like silver? And you think you can definitively say P t3 is imba? With the aggro playstyle you advocate any toss trying to tech beyond gateway units should get crushed.
