  1. Hellllllllll yeah man. Shame I'm not there, you have a 100% winrate with me on the rail.
  2. If you do this make sure you run it through a neutral wallet first. If coinbase sees you getting withdraws directly from an address they associate with gambling they will ban you. Just download a wallet and transfer it there first, then to coinbase. You have to eat one extra step's worth of fees but you keep your cashout method.
  3. You still in that? Now I'm bored and looking to rail
  4. 2nd. Guy sucked out on me twice to win. Oh well I ran about as pure as possible to get HU so no worries.
  5. lol 4/9 in High Five #5. Hyper turbo shenanigans.
  6. FT of the $5 5k 8 max yet again. 8/8 though.
  7. I withdrew a little over 1k thursday afternoon, had to verify some info on the phone, then had it in bitcoin friday morning.
  8. This happened to a friend. Constant pain all over, doctor after doctor unsure of what it is. Eventually ended up being Lupis. I hope that isn't what you got man cause that shit sucks.
  9. Absolutely. the direct odds you are getting increase with each person in, to the point that they look really attractive, but your odds to number of players in the pot ratio falls with each extra person, and you are almost always going to be first to act. Still defend hands that play well multiways like suited connectors and stuff, and your ability to set mine with small pairs goes up a ton, but some of the more garbage hands you would defend against a single raise you should fold against a raise and 1+ calls. You really have to smack the flop to profitably continue with hands say 4 ways in
  10. I got a few sours from them and they were very good.
  11. I don't necessarily have a mathematical reason, I just found when I got HU in the games I play (<$5 MTTs usually) a lot of people aren't very strong players, and are especially weak HU. Often they either seem to start getting way too aggressive, or keep playing an almost ring game style and just get slowly bled. In my experience both of these are fairly exploitable by not shoving as much, and letting them make mistakes. Raise/fold in spots you normally wouldn't against the tight players, and raising small to induce shoves from the over aggressive players with a pretty wide range of value ha
  12. Ha honestly man I don't remember anything like that, and when I see your name I don't think "Oh fuck that guy" or anything so definitely nothing personal. I did most of my posting on here a decade ago, and I was 19/20. I was definitely a much bigger asshole and a lot less happy than I am now. Frankly I didn't even want to use this screen name for a long time because I'm ashamed of some of the shit I posted without a second thought 10 years ago, but eventually decided that anyone could easily match me up with the name with a little research anyway so its probably better to just own my past
  13. Yuuuuuup. For a long time all I wanted to be was a poker pro, and I'm really happy I got to live that dream for 5 years, but man did it suck a lot of the time. Now that I don't play for a living I enjoy poker 100x more. edit: It would have probably sucked less if I was a nosebleed crusher with fans and sponsorships and whatever back in the day, but the vast majority of poker pros are just consistent depressing grinders. Not fun.
  14. Also I didn't even consider it, but check/raising the turn yourself here doesn't seem too bad either. It looks super strong, and is potentially really good if you think the opponent is too floaty and could just have air or a hand like TT trying to buy a showdown on the turn. I would still lean towards betting, but against certain people I would definitely check/shove here.
  15. I would lean towards betting turn for sure. You have a lot of equity yeah, but that is exactly why you want to bet here. Your hand is likely not good on the turn, but you have tons of equity. That is an ideal spot to keep barreling. It sets you up perfectly for a river shove if you hit, or are feeling frisky and want to three barrel, and it puts immense pressure on anything less than an overpair. Even a hand as strong as AJ is going to be very worried when you bet turn. In general cards where you pick up equity are the best ones to keep betting on. You have to bluff some % of the time, it i
  16. I feel like these details over which line is optimal are very much dependent on the flow of the HU match, your style, and your opponent. HU is definitely when dynamics can shift the most and clear right and wrong answers often go out the window. So it is pretty impossible give really decent advice without seeing how the whole match played out. Personally I definitely don't open shove nearly as much HU as I do earlier in the tournament. I might open ship 25 BBs BvB vs a tough player with A4 or A5, but almost never HU from the button, but I also am probably hardly ever folding to a 3bet shov
  17. It is always a good idea to try and improve your game, but don't beat yourself up too much. Sometimes we just don't get cards and our opponent does. HU with large blinds especially can be super demoralizing when stuff just doesn't work out. Sometimes it feels like you are getting owned, when in reality the other guy is just an ace magnet. Also never ever fold A9 HU 15 bbs deep.
  18. As far as I know it has never been illegal to play online poker. YOU aren't doing anything wrong. The poker sites are breaking the law by offering an illegal service to you. I wouldn't trust any American facing site with large amounts of money though. Who knows if/when the govt decides to pull another Black Friday and Full Tilt has proven that we can't be sure of the liquidity of sites who aren't publicly traded with available financials etc. As for taxes, you just say exactly what it is and claim it normally. If you aren't a pro or trying to write off stuff like travel expenses then I beli
  19. I think this is a spot you just fold pre. You are getting good preflop odds, but your hand sucks, you are fourway with someone all in so its impossible to ever bluff, and your odds don't mean anything unless you get to the river, and you aren't ever getting to the river here without smacking the shit out of the flop, which you don't have near the odds to speculate for.
  20. I would recommend avoiding this kind of play. There are really only two reasons to bet/raise, get a worse hand to call, or get a better hand to fold. Think about what your flop raise accomplishes in this spot. Every single hand you beat folds (and if they don't then your play is even worse because you're now folding to a shove from a worse hand), every single hand you lose to calls/raises. The result is that it is impossible for this raise to be profitable. Now lets think about what happens if you call. Any kinda scared hand like a weaker ace, a hand like JJ, or middle pair is probably
  21. Hey man long time, glad to see you're still making FTs. That shit is always important to remember. Everytime I get a bad beat at a FT I try and remember all the bullshit luck I pulled on people to get there, because its hard to make a FT without some bullshit going your way at some point.
  22. Are you saying he should be donk shoving turn here? I'm not sure what that accomplishes. That flop should usually be a whiff in a fairly large 3bet pot, and with opponents raise on the flop it should really be a two pair+, an over pair, or some type of air. Sets and overpairs are pretty much never checking back turn and with so much money in the pot I'm sure a lot of air shoves too. Donk shoving to prevent backdoor draws from hitting just seems like looking for monsters under the bed that aren't there. The only draws on the flop are 45, 58, and 89, and playing to avoid the worst case scenario
  23. Ok well I should never play this tournament again to perserve my ROI. Afaik never played it before this week, four times played in four days, 3 FTs, 6th, 2nd, and 1st.
