63 Diary of a Low Volume Grinder part-7 "Making your life HeLL on da Tables"
Placed 2nd last night in the $11 6Max 3K; Which is also a mtt i rarely get to play because of my fucking job. Although i am thankful as i truly need that winning horse; I truly wish and hope to improve to a point where an off day or two won't kill me cash wise. This week i have had several deepish runs and final tables in the $33 7.5k formally the 10K; which is also my favorite mtt on merge. I ...

12 World Series of Poker Part Deux
After a decent first half of the WSOP (managed a cash in the Millionaire Maker) I headed home to North Carolina to spend a bit of time with the family and drink a few beers by the pool. It has been a great week of rest and relaxation, but it is time to get back to the Vegas house and get back on the grind. I head back tomorrow morning and will be there throughout the Main Event. I have 3 events ...

1 New Jersey sites ready for 2/3 table tournies instead of quals
Ok. Party Poker Nj and WsopNj, we are ready for 2 to 3 table sit n gos instead of the silly qualifiers in which only one person gets in to a major tourney and second often gets zero or a few dollars. I have finished 2nd many times in the qualifiers due to the allin fests of my competitors. Please add some of these tournies so that we can accumulate some profits on the days we are 2nd and 3rd.

9 Running Great!
I'm currently on a sick heater right now and I love it. Took town two tourneys (Carbon nightly 6-max 1k, and Carbon nightly 2k) in three days and had great results in the other tourneys that I've played recently. It's such an amazing feeling to be on the right side of variance. I wouldn't be where I am today skill-wise if it wasn't for studying the game every day and analyzing my toughest hands ...

1 Ship it and ship it again
I wanted to share a new personal best. I shipped 2 mtts today! This is a first, I've never won two in one day and until recently was struggling to even make the final table. My previous results have been pretty average so I'm super excited to continue this good run and turn things around. My last few years have been largely unprofitable so it's great to finally be in the black with some great ...

11 how easy is low stakes heads up? $50 to $1000 in a week
ok so this may be a bit extreme and perhaps unrealistic but I find beating these games pretty easy. I can constantly rebuild my roll focusing entirely on $7dollar hypers and the 10.50 super knockouts (these are awesome) you get 5 dollars for every victory and top 8 get paid with just under $400 if u bink one. I recently completed 100 to 2000 in 4weeks at these games. Obviously the knockout ...

13 On a Mission (early July update)
Haven't updated in a while so figured now would be a good time... First to review my June goals.. 1. Hit a bankroll of 750 by end of month - I was able to accomplish this mainly behind the strength of shipping a 5r turbo on Jun 19 for 240ish.. rewarded myself by taking a 2nd cash out and then proceeded to go on a downswing 2. Hit a score of 200+ - shipped 5r turbo for 240ish 3. Have at ...

3 2008, greatness, and shittiness.
2008 started off great, on New years day, I finished 7th in the $11r 45k for $1,900. Just 6 short days later, I finished 5th in the same tournament for $2,800. Solid start to the year already. At this point, I was beginning to really feel good about my play. I remember thinking how good I felt I was. In all actuality, I was probably better then than I am now. But, I think alot of that has to ...

3 Keep getting it in good but can't hold
Just getting back here to remind myself about some feelings regarding hands and pro advice. Waited for spots tonight in some of the small buy in tourneys on merge and got it in good in all. Each time I had my opponents completely dominated and couldn't come away from it with the best result. In talking to the more successful players, I am reassured that things will turn around and my bad luck ...

10 Part 2, Poker!
My last couple of weeks have been a big eye opener about my goals I have set for the year. It made me realize that while my overall goal of turning $2,000 into $35,000 is tough but can be done, it also made me realize that I might have bitten off more than I can chew by adding the Supernova goal. In being truly honest with myself, I have come to the conclusion I cannot accomplish both and have to ...

1 My Daily Session: An Animated Short
When I start my session, I'm all excited. I have razorsharp focus. I see everything. I am everything. Some of my moves are so awesome, I just have to replay them. I know how the hand ends, but I still get overwhelmed. And yes, a bad beat - here and there - I can handle just fine. But after a while, I get tired. My sessions are usually close to 12 ...

1 Wanted... Poker Players
Remember the good old days, when you could sign on to Party Poker, PokerStars or Full Tilt and buy into a $10 or $20 tournament and see a $20k first prize' This is the type of environment we could have again if states all shared player liquidity. On any given day, the two largest sites in NJ typically have less than 200 seats filled at all of their cash games, often this is 1/1000th of what ...

1 February/March Goals + a hand for review.
I'm a little tired, have an interview @ 12 (nothing interesting). I decided I needed to make a blog entailing my poker goals for the month (well, rest of the month/next). February: 1: Log 25k cash game hands (big mark for me playing ACR 4-6 tables) 2: Play solid tournament poker (win big, play smart, exploit!) 3: Choose my poker path: MTT's or Cash by the end of the month 4: Stop calling 3-4bs, ...

2 Confessions of a stay at home dad
Well, where should I start' I suppose I'll start out with where I'm at right now. Last August my wife and I had our first kid, a boy. In October I quit my job and went full time at my local community college for welding, so I'm taking night classes there monday- thursday and I stay home with the baby every day while my wife, a nurse, is at work. Money couldn't be tighter but I can finally see ...

It's funny... on the night I tweet: There's a slew of silly drama in the poker community. Let's not harbor it. #Ambassador — Tristan Wade (@TristanCre8ive) July 2, 2014 I return to blogging. You probably heard about Daniel Colman, I am not going to give an interview or explanations. I'm here for a reason.

1 A History of Poker
My name is Christian Fields. I am 21 years old, and I have been playing poker on and off for 7 years. Let me begin by saying, I fell in love with the game the day I was introduced. Playing Free-roll's on my Dad's account as a 14 year old for hours with the chance to win the $30 top prize, I can remember it too well. Back then, I played the game for fun. I played to learn from my mistakes and ...

1 Boycott Venetian During WSOP
With the WSOP just weeks away, I think its time that we have this conversation. As we all know, Sheldon Adelson and his coalition, Stop Net Gambling, has unleashed an all our war against online gambling, including poker, in all 50 states. We need to send him a message that we will not go down with out a fight. I am proposing an all out boycott from all of his properties starting now ...

1 Satellite Success
Hey all... I'm new to Pocket Fives, and I just love this site! It's so informative and educational! As a very low stakes player I have been learning and growing my game. I've just recently started giving Satellite tournaments a go and today I won a 1st stage Satellite for 0.25c at 888 poker, which led me to a $2.20 direct Satellite to the $22.00 Mega Dozen, kicking off in 4 hours. I ...
