  1. Nothing will be better for you than experience. Just play as much as you can, and learn from every mistake you make. This is the quickest way to get better.
  2. What do you think is (was??) my greatest weakness in MTTS. What do you think is (was??) my greatest strength in MTTS?
  3. Lenail- Not sure about the million bonus, I have no idea about that. I appreciate the kind words.
  4. Congrats to my brother vengrinj for taking down both daily doubles on FTP, made a sick comeback on the second one making it that much sweeter!
  5. Can we get some decent guarantees?
  6. Agreed, add more levels or make it 20 min levels, def a joke to be playing for 1.6 mil and have 17 bbs.
  7. They more then doubled the guarantee, it seems whenever they guarantee high.... they hit. I don't see a downside to having a 5 mil guaranteed every weekend, or at least once a month. At LEAST bump up the guarantee from 1.5 to 2.5 or something. Thoughts?
  8. Loved Love. Great show, very acrobatic.
  9. Sooooo..... Let me get this straight..... Now the MA'ers can have 12 accounts instead of 3? Well done.
  10. Learning the basics of poker: the odds, the hands, the basic strategy. I have never read a full book, but I need to recommend one to a friend who is just starting. Thanks, -Matt
  11. I fully approve of this award, it is an honor to have it named after me and for it to be given to BigEarn7. It's not easy being this helpless, thank you for your continued support OT! Oh while I have you- How many teaspoons are in a tablespoon? -Plattsburgh
  12. The guy who called all in was pretty competent, he is up like 300k according to the poker db. Doubt it was a chip dump, and doubt it was a hero call, which leaves nothing left hence why I am so baffled. And ty, folding the Q7 is a move I have been working on for awhile.

  14. I am not disagreeing with you, it was not a great situation. I guess I trusted people too much a few years ago. Its taken a few bad business decisions to finally cement into my head not to trust people with money so freely. Its just like poker, you need to have bad experiences to learn how to become better at poker or life. I wanted to give him a second chance, obviously I did not think he would cash for 11k, but I believe everyone deserves a second chance. I agree with you though, it was not a smart decision.
  15. Nice score, I started out with those 3R's also, keep it up good luck!
  16. I met TheRealMT (Mark Tomasko) a few years back when I was grinding in Atlantic City. He seemed like a great dude, and he maybe is a great dude, who knows but this is my story: In 2007, I roomed with him at the Borgata for the 2007 Borgata Poker Open, he cashed for ~60k during that series. Shortly after, he asked me to transfer him 4k online and he would pay me 6k in cash at the WSOP. I decided this was a great deal, and knew he had the money and trusted him based on us hanging out a lot in Jersey. I also sent him some more money after this when he got low. He never made it to the WSOP, or at least he never met up with me. I waited a year before I started to get suspicious. I started pressing him for the money and eventually he told me that he was broke and he would get it to me when he could. I accepted this and waited. Flash forward to September 27th, 2009 I figured that id put him in the Sunday mil because he seems to do well in big fields and it would cost me 200 bucks and I could potentially win my money back and more, or lose 200 which I was fine with. I still considered him a friend who had fallen on hard times so I sent the money. 8 hours or so later, he was at the final table. He was very short and ended up going out 9th for $11,648. I was psyched, because I stipulated that for anything he cashed for he would pay me back first before taking any money. (I also had a 60/40 split since it was a 1 time deal) So I was slated to get a big chunk of that 11k, and be free of the debt. Shortly after he finished, he claimed to have sent me the money (not sure if he did or not) but stars put a halt on it, since it was such a large transfer. During the next few days he dodged my calls, lied to me about what was going on and lost the money. He then finally admitted to have played 1-200 LHE trying to win some money. Either way, I was sent nothing from this score, from the principle OR the staking deal. He then got involved with another backer, and he was up like 24k during the first mo. He did send me 2k from our number, which is now at 11k. I waited so long to make this post because I wanted to give him a chance to make this right. But I am not going to wait any longer, just wanted everyone to know not to stake this person as he has done this twice now that we know about. -Matt “Plattsburgh” Vengrin
