The Well : Sandviper23

A stranger is being shown around a village that he has just become part of. He is shown a well and his guide says "On any day except tuesday, you can shout any question down that well and you'll be told the answer" . The man seems pretty impressed, and so he shouts down: Why not on tuesday? and the voice from in the well shouts back: Because on tuesday, its your day in the well .

Re: The Well : Sandviper23

I am going to be 29 next month.

I always played mix cash games growing up at family parties and at the lakehouse. I was known at the little aggressive runt at the table raising quaters.

I got into poker seriously back in 2003 after seeing the WSOP on TV and watching Rounders. (sorry to admit it)

Rock, Scissors, Paper.

You probably play a Paper style, which beats Rock.

The weekend gamblers are a Scissor style, so my suggestion is to switch up your game when you are involved with alot of these weekend gamblers.

Re: The Well : Sandviper23

Lifetime graph?
I had problems with poker tracker when I switched to my laptop so i would only have stats from december 2006.

Whats the best and worst advice you read on here?
The Best advice I find in the stickys. There is alot of quality stuff up there. The worst advice ... i'd say that some of the random comments i see in the Hands posts are not great, but for the most part it gets corrected in the end.

Whats your bankroll requirements for moving up limits?
Oddly enough, i've never followed bankroll requirements or let it limit me as to what games I was playing. I tend to stick with what i'm beating and will take shots are higher stakes but if i'm not killing it, then i'll drop down no matter what my BR is.

What stats are running 24 tabling $100nl ? I am at 12.9 VPIP and 8.5 PFR

What winrate are you achieving 24 tabling? So far 1.62 BB/100 this month with 60k hands.

Re: The Well : Sandviper23

I've been debating it, but I don't think so. I signed with a baseball team in Holland and that'll take up just enough time during the summer to make it pretty difficult to maintain a pace to reach a million VPPs.

This month i'm on pace and will hit 55k vpps.

So 2008 goal will be 500k pts which should be easily attainable but will still keep me busy

Re: The Well : Sandviper23

What kind of music do you generally listen to while playing poker?

How many hands do you think you played in 2007?

What advice can you give to someone who wants to beat 50NL FR?

Re: The Well : Sandviper23

How often do you make moves at 50NL - 100NL and how often do you think people are making moves on you? Is it better to just play straightforward at these levels and fold to re-raises and wait for big hands or should I be playing back at what I think are people making moves on me?

Re: The Well : Sandviper23

I don't usually listen to music anymore, but if I do, i'll put on country just to keep me in a calm mood.
(any other activities i listen to rap)

I'm opening poker tracker now to get hands played this year.. .filter is taking a while so i'll post in a minute

Advice for someone wanting ot beat 50nl fr. My advice would be to play a tight abc type game with an extra flare of aggression in late position. Stealing blinds, Raising Limpers, and knowing who the regulars to watch out for are.

I would be careful about thinking people are making moves too often, alot of the times they do have the goods. If you feel that you are getting raised alot, take notes, watch that player in other hands that you are not involved in as well.

The higher the levels, the more you'll be playing back. The biggest difference I noticed between 200s and 100s are at the 200s the regulars there 3bet me often and I had to make adjustments and 4bet lightly in spots.

Re: The Well : Sandviper23

I find some ah-ha moments once or twice every year.

This year the biggest ah-ha was adding the Cbet and Foldto CBet percentages on my opponents and using that to my advantage with PA HUD.

Re: The Well : Sandviper23

Thanks for doing a Well!


So are you no longer in Vegas?

Do you have a poker schedule? Do you try to play a certain number of days each week or a certain number of hours each day?

Best/worst thing about poker?

What would you say is your greatest strength as a player?

Forgive my naivety...baseball in Holland???

Re: The Well : Sandviper23

I left Vegas in April 2007 to goto Sweden to play baseball in their top league. They pay for my airfare, food, apartment and small salary. I left there in October and i'm here in Cape Town, South Africa now playing winter baseball. They don't pay anything there, but they do provide a house for me and my american teammate to stay at.

I set up a poker schedule on a monthly basis based on my goals for that month. This month for example i'm playing 4-5 hours a day. My goal is to reach 55k Vpps.

Best thing about poker is the freedom to live and go wherever you want. My best investment is my laptop.
Worst thing is the stress it can give you sometime. A bad day can leave you in a bad mood around your friends and make life miserable for alittle while.

My greatest strength is my ability to learn and adapt to the meta game.

There is baseball all over europe, I had a pretty outstanding season in sweden this past summer and I got a pretty good deal to play in Holland. Their major league is equivilant to low level minor league in the USA. They are allowed to have one american or non european passport player per team.


Here is a short baseball article with pic a website wrote on me 2 months ago.

Re: The Well : Sandviper23

Sand - i see that your winrate at 24 tables is only 1.62 bb/100 - have you considered lowering the tables, maybe in half to create a higher win rate?

i'm sure you've thought of this, but i'm curious as to why you kill yourself with 24 tables?

what's your hourly rate? even if it's only for the PT stats you currently have... i'm curious to know...

does your hourly rate suffer dramatically when lowering tables?

Re: The Well : Sandviper23

It sounds like it is more profitable for you to play slightly lower limits but play more tables?

Re: The Well : Sandviper23

I didn't think a 1.62 bb/100 WR was bad. Thats over 225k hands. The $100NL can be pretty tough sometimes on Stars.

I can play 24 tables without killing myself, i'll even play 26 tables when they have the VIP tourneys.

Hourly rate on VIP bonuses alone is $25

Yes for sure, I am playing with $2,400 at a time, but I have it spread out 24 times instead of playing (5) $500 buyin for example.

-Lower Variance

-Good FPPs for bonuses

-Easier Games
