Do you use a HUD while playing?
I tried it once using a free 30 day trial and absolutely hated it. Like a poster said I was second guessing myself. I'm a cash game player that plays 4 tables on Bovada. I'm a good note taker and constantly pay attention. The only reason to use a HUD imo is if you are not paying attention or playing to many tables to keep track of. I'm kind of a weirdo and don't like too much data and would rather go on instinct. I don't even like going to forums as much anymore b/c I think it hurts my poker psyche w/ all the garbage that goes around.

Retirement.........Yours, not mine, numbnutz.
I feel like this topic is geared right towards me. I'm a 30 year old male, married for just over a year and a bun in the oven. My wife and I have job hopped the last few years with unclear career paths which takes a hit on our retirement. We're both contemplating and plan on making career changes. Between us we have

Aiming to achieve a weekly income from poker?
There's multiple things you need before you can even attempt this: 1.) 6-8 months of living expenses in the bank 2.) Years of prior experience proving you're a winner @ the games and stakes you're playing 3.) Razor sharp discipline. Being able to control tilt, bankroll management, etc. 4.) My biggest obstacle that I think is downplayed and often forgotten. You have to be so mentally strong as an online poker player. Its just you and the computer screeen 40-60 hrs/week. No human interaction besides forums and if u have poker friends. Very few people who can actually relate to what ...

Article: Three US Senators Send Letter to DOJ Supporting Bill Banning Online Gambling
I used to get super pissed when he made news with throwing all his money around. I really don't anymore. I don't think he has a leg or wheelchair to stand on. Even with his billions, times are a changing. What's gonna happen when he's gone in a few years' Is his money going to continue to pay off senators for the crusade vs online gaming' No. I'm normally a pessimist, but there's no way they shut down 3 states that have jumped through all these hoops to legalize everything. Way 2 many reasons this doesn't make sense. Even if somehow they do pass his dumb bill the black market of offshore ...

Folding AA on flop. So tough to do.
It is a terrible fold the second you raise him you have to call and All in. He has 40bb to start the hand. Once you raise, its $10 more for you to call to win an $80 pot if I'm reading this right' Thats really bad. If he had 100bb's its a different story, but as played thats bad. We don't even have to talk about how wide his range can be being only 40 bb's deep.

Deciding whether or not to fire a third barrel - live 1/2
1. I like the way you played the hand. I'm fine with your bet sizing as well. 2. Player dependent. I'm mostly only checking the turn if its an aggro w/ the capability of check raising me which would effectively put us all in with only 30%ish equity. 3. The river check is fine. I initially put him on weak king or mid pair 77-1010, all of which beat you. You're most likely getting called from all of these with a river bet. 4. The only river cards I possibly triple barrel bluff are A or Q.

Bovada Deposits and Cashouts
People many times have the common misperception that their individual situation should change an entire business model that has been successful for 20+ years. Does Bovada have their issues like any other site operating in a gray area' Absolutley. Id have to say that they are top notch @ the moment in the US with # of tables, payouts, etc and it isn't even close. I have no evidence to back it up but I'd guess many people having issues with checks are not in the best standing with their bank. Some1 that continously overdraws their account and only has $47.34 in their checking account is ...

Bovada Deposits and Cashouts
Well, ur the first person I've heard of suggest this b/c most people don't cash out their whole bankroll when they cashout. So there is no loss of rake and there are no payment problems at the moment. People do what you are trying to do successfully thousands of times a day. I'm still trying to follow what you're saying. What I'm gathering here is that you want Bodog to have a special department that answers phones acting as 100's of thousands of fake businesses and lie to the banks when they call about their business operations' If so, good luck with that....

Bovada Deposits and Cashouts
/\ /\ /\ I'm not totally following the end of your post about losing rake and juice. As far as the check goes, its completely standard. The companies do not exist. You and/or the bank will not be able to get a hold of them ever. My banks have done the same thing you are describing in the past. They will call the bank to verify the company. They cannot do so. So my bank tells me that they think the check may be fraudulent. I say its not and will pay fees or wtv they wish if the check bounces. They agreed, but they put a hold on my account until they received funds from the check. This usually ...

I need help with my attidute and positivity
Good post OP. I often struggle with exactly what you're saying as well. I think at some point every professional struggles with this. I've come to the conclusion that you have to be so fucking mentally strong to be a professional poker player for numerous reasons that have nothing to do with variance or anything related to poker. We sit in front of a computer by ourselves for 40+ hours a week. We have little to no human interaction during that time period. That in itself is enough to get you anxiety or make you go a little crazy lol. I know that was and still is my problem. I find myself ...

My advice about using (or not using) poker software
I'm the biggest hater of HUDs, however, If you are 8+ tabling sngs or mtts you're a moron if you don't use software tracking. I play cash games and 4-6 table mid stakes. I hate HUDs and havent used them in 5+ years. The real question for me is, Is it more profitable to play 4-6 tables of mid stakes or 12-16 tables of low stakes' For me, its the former and its not even close.

Assuming they eventually enter the US market, why in the world is this bad' I've always been a huge proponent of poker sites connected to casinos/sportsbooks. If successful (I don't know how it can't be) and they enter the US market this will be a fkng goldmine. Bovada X 1000 imo w/ rakeback lol 1 timeee.

Merge and Bovada (Bodog) Deposits & Cashouts
It seems Bovada changed their WU policy after being on the phone with them. As of May 15th WU max cashout is lowered from 2,000 to 1,000 and timeframe goes from 1-3 business days and now its 4-5 business days. Have you tried it recently aupoker' I just requested a WU cashout yesterday for the first time in months and this is what I was told by customer service.

i need some serious advice with going threw a ridiculously bad run
I'm going through the 2nd worst run of my life. I have a different approach. I decrease tables and concentrate on my play. I take more time than normal making decisions. Hopefully that works and if it doesn't, which it didn't for me this time. I take some time off which is very difficult but you come back with a better frame of mind than thinking your gonna lose every hand.
