Advice on Being a full-time grinder!
Yes it was brutal, but it was really only a 1200 game downswing with the last 600 roughly breakeven. During SCOOP my ABI was higher than normal, but I don't think it changed all that much.

Deep ITM (170ish left) 2 big stacks (top 20) in The Big $3.30
I like flatting pre, and would be check calling this flop. I don't like raising because against his GII range I doubt you have 40%. You both are super deep so just play passively and get value from his bluffs. He most likely shuts down on the river and checks back a lot of value hands as well, so you can usually get to showdown in 2 streets.

Advice on Being a full-time grinder!
Hey, Congrats on making this leap. It's a big step to start to take poker seriously, and I remember when I was in your shoes back in 2007. I've played professionally supporting myself for about 5 years, (2 years off after black friday). Starting out I would suggest you to be aware of the swings in MTT's, that you can go a whole month losing money. This graph was my downswing during SCOOP this year, 2 break even months, and a super heater in August. This is the brutal reality of MTTs. When I play I start registering sometime in the morning/mid afternoon (EST) and play for about 8-11 hours. ...

Well style of play really depends on the structure of the tournament. If there are no antes, then tighter is better. When antes come in, you want to play looser. It also depends on your table draw. How are the players at the table' Do you have stations on your left' Play tighter. If you have nits on your left you can open more.

unethical to berate opponents online; live?
It depends. I think you should never educate players at the table. If they played a hand stupid and won, then that is good and what you want, it just doesn't feel like it in the moment. Players who play bad make it possible to make money at poker, and you have to always keep that in mind. However, if someone is being disrespectful, then sometimes I'll say something back to them, although it's (hopefully) never out of tilt, and it's just kind of in a joking way. I'm always careful live, because I think things can escalate to violence easily with some people, and I don't try to start any ...

Review my results
I doubt you'll get someone to review that many hands for you but I'm sure you can learn a lot from the stats themselves, although much of how you should be playing you can't learn from just fixing some stats. Looking at your stats in the macro sense is a good idea, and I would make sure you filter the hands you look at by players dealt into the hand, because when you are deep in a tourney and it's

I don't really get what you're asking for. What do you consider "very good" online' How much are you making playing on bovada, and how are you evaluating yourself when you say you are very good' I think if you are very good online, it should transfer to live play fairly easily. The biggest problem I had going from online to live was calming down and not bluffing myself out of tournaments for no reason. Online I was used to playing so many tables, so it felt like I was always in a hand, which when transferring to live play is tough to deal with sometimes not even playing a hand for an hour. ...

Advice On Recent Hand Played In The Million
This is why you should always post the copy + pasted hand history. It's way easier to read, and no information can be mistaken. It's a common problem in this forum that is so easy to remedy. OP, in the future, please just post the entire hand history, and not your summarized version.

Advice On Recent Hand Played In The Million
snap call. He's shoving about a pot size bet. There is absolutely no way I'm folding here. You should be ahead a large majority of the time vs players who play that way preflop and this way on this flop. This flop has no overcards to your jacks, so I expect to see smaller pocket pairs a large % of the time, even hands like Tx. I just don't see you beat here often enough to ever justify a fold with these stack sizes and this action on this flop.

Tough spot heads up in $27r MTT
As played, when he check shoves the river, it's pretty gross, and I think it's very polarized. I think it's QJ or a missed flush draw. He's never really doing it with less value because better two pair check/call or lead out, sets are so unlikely (since you block a 4) and he probably raises TT+ pre. Also, however many combos of missed draws you find that he can have, you need to remove some because he's likely check/folding them fairly often. I think I fold this river, but it's really a hand that you need to have a feel for the player, so I can't say for 100% because reads you get on ...

AJo on button facing 22bb 3bet shove on final table bubble
Yeah, I agree it's a snap r/c against any decent reg, but even vs some randoms, they still shove a wide enough range that I'd want to r/c. We don't know they're flatting range, and they can definitely be flatting hands they should be reshoving, so it makes it tough to find the exact answer here, but I'm with you that my style where I'm going to be opening the button very often, I just don't think I can fold near the top of my opening range.

AJo on button facing 22bb 3bet shove on final table bubble
Surprised to see everyone saying fold here. I had written out a long post, and then P5s crashed and my message was gone, so this one will be a little shorter. Basically we have effective stacks of 22bb raising the button. We should be opening close to 60% here, and more if we think the blinds are tight. Vs a range of [22+,A2s+,A8o+,KJo+,QJo] we have 52% equity, and with the dead money in the pot this will always be a +cEV call. A very important factor is also the other stacks in the tournament. If there are a bunch of 50+bb stacks, then calling is much more appealing, but if you are close ...

Can/should I be folding here?
I'm always getting it in pre here. As played, your flop shove is most likely going to fold out hands that you want to be calling. Betting very small on the flop will get you more value in the long run vs his entire range.

Acceptance from Society that you play poker part/full time
The way you can give back to society as a poker player is to be a good person in society. It's no different than anyone else that has a 9-5 desk job. What is someone who sits at a computer all day testing code at some big company contributing to society' His job isn't contributing anything to society, it's what he does away from that job that matters. The biggest factor here is you need to honestly look at the figures to determine whether poker is a positive thing in your life. Are the people who are judging you honestly concerned for you because you spend all your time playing and you ...

Article: Final Deadline Set for US Full Tilt Poker Claims
It's bullshit how bad at communicating they have been. I put my disputed claim in two years ago as well, and after I sent them my bank statement and my balance showing I never got it, I asked them if this was sufficient and they never replied.

Was i Supossed to fold JJ here??
Well, as played it's a call because even vs a ten and him having a blocker, like ATo, you're getting the right price to call being 126k more to win 444k it's about 3.5:1. You have 24% equity and you need about 22% vs [TT,ATs,KTs,QTs,JTs,T9s,ATo,KTo,QTo,JTo,T9o], and those are all hands that are a straight. I think I'm check calling the turn here. You can make an argument for betting the turn, because you can get value from worse hands, like KQ, AQ, etc, but I think with your sizing, you can't bet/fold the turn. If you are betting the turn I think you need to go smaller. Making it 55k gives ...

Poker and computers of the future.
that's not entirely true about poker always being played human vs human. There is that site called skillbet (I think), that puts a human vs a computer, and another human vs a computer. I dunno how well the site does, and IMO it's pretty dumb, but it is out there.

huge 180 man downswing
I think 100 games is a lot, but as manch said you need to look at what's going on. Are you getting a lot of 10-18ths' I would think you should have a FT in 100 games, so maybe study up and review some of your hh's to see if you're doing anything wrong. Or send one to me and I'll take a look when I get around to it.
