  1. If you read my last blog, I discussed how I turned a really bad run and 87 cents left over into a personal challenge. I won a bunch of SnG's used alot of bankroll management and displine to try to not take "the big shot". A couple weeks ago, I reached a mile stone. I was down (yes down from $940) to $860 and my wife was wanting to go to dinner for a friday. Since I didn't want to play a MTT since I didn't ahve time or a SnG since I was running pretty bad, I played a .50/1 cash game. I haven't played a cash game in 4 or 5 months cause I'm big on reading players, and I think online cash games above and beyond tougher than live cash games. I actually perfer live cash games over tourney's but I think online, MTT's are the way to go. I decided to play it and Alan Boston was at the table, a well-known Radio Personality. I didn't get star struck cause I think with all the players at the table, people try to get brave and try to impress the pro's with crazy moves and that's exactly what was going on. After 15 or 20 minutes of folding, a wild player raised from early postion to $4, I had 9's in the BB and flopped a set to his KK's and doubled up. I got right back to $940. A couple days later, I played a $3 tourney, a little buzzed, and there were 1,583 players. After a huge rush of cards, I had 1.7 mil in chips to 2nd place having 420k with 15 left. At the final table, I got pretty unlcuky in some spots and finished 6th for $198. This finally propelled me to $1,176. This propelled me past 1k, my first milestone, and I'm ready to say that by the end of this year, I want 5k. my biggest cashou was 1k after 1 big tourney win, but I want a nice one. I will continue to use bankroll management and to aviod the bad runs. It happens to all of us, you just need to learn how to beat the bad beats. I hope this inspires some of you to do the same and to use displine to get to your goals. Good luck at the tables.
  2. After a couple 4 figure scores back in May - July live and online. I went in a bad 3 month dry streak where I couldn't cash for anything and became sub par in cash games. I took week or so off poker and then on a wednesday I was off from work, I logged on FTP and saw I had 87 cents. This was November 8th. I was going to deposit but saw that had enough to play .01/.02 games. I ran it up to $2.93. Enough for a $2 SnG which I won for $9. played a $5 SnG and came in 3rd for $9. Won my weekly HORSE game on FTP for $45. came in 2nd in a 90 ply $6 tourney for $88. and now today on January 9th, I have $994. I want this to be $5K by the end of the year. I love the 90 player SnG's but MTT are where big things can happen. I don't play cash games online due to lack of displine. ( I lost $600 on 1 hand playing way above my head). Anyone for any advice or similar goal. let me know, I wanna challenge myself with someone possibly, especially in the Florida Area. Thanks for reading. WildxxxCard

  4. I'm a first times for the World Series. Playing in event #54 ($1,500 buyin NLHE). I need some advice on the best way to play this structure. Chip Count:4,500 Blinds level increase: 1 hour start at 25-50 2,700 player projection My Main goal is to cash and have a good showing obv but I don't want the money to affect my play. Should I play fast since everyone is just about as nervous as me? or shouold I tighten my game up seeing as there are mostly veterans that I'm playing with. (I don't call them amateurs anymore, it's not 2005) Thanks in advance yall

  6. he made a horrible call in the small blind with Q9 but before you know his cards, I would put him on small pair or suited connectors. Once that flop comes, only player I'm worried about is Ithfen. Once he folded on your flop bet, the other guy had to be chasing. I can see why you checked in case he had the straight or but he would have raised u with 2 pair sicne the straight draw is on the board. He either had a weak hand or the nuts. nothing else.
  7. He told me later if he had JJ, he would have folded. He thought I had a shot at having Aces, thats was my first time all tournament 4 betting and we stayed out of each others way until this point. I thought he HAD to had A's or K's to play with me...MAYBE Q's.
  8. I figure I had to call once e shoved. But when he 3 bet the original raiser, should I have gone nuts and 4 bet it with AQ or just folded since his stack was the only one that can knock me out, or just fold since I don't even wanna play a pot with him.
  9. I think I could have done any one in this situation but I'll take the majority vote. I don't have the hand history detail but this is pretty simple. Average stack is 11,000 I have 22,000 Top 180 pay and 188 are left I have 2 other players at my table having 20,000, everyone else is 8,000ish. Blinds 50/200/500 I'm the button. 8 handed 1st position Fold 2nd position Fold 3rd position (low stack) bets 1300. Hyjack position (only player having me covered with 27,000) re-raises to 4,200 I Have AQs and re-raise to 9,500 all fold back to 3rd position who folds Big Stack thinks for 5-7 seconds and shoves. I have 12,000ish left. There is 34,000ish in the Pot. I am getting nearly 3-1 at my money at this point and praying my opponent is going nuts with 10's or Jack's. I call and he has pocket K's and I'm out 3 before the money. My aggresion is a curse and a gift at the same time, but I asked the guy later about the play and he told me that he would have folded JJ's or maybe QQ's. Which leads me to beleive my play was right because I didn't care about cashing, I wanted to abuse te bubble. I thought my play would work about 80-85% of the time. Let me know your opinion. Appreciate it.
  10. #1. ARe you going for first or trying to move up in money chain? #2. you have another player behind you. #3. Has CKing done this a number of times bullying yall? #4. I'm guessing 8 handed table. you're making it sound like your 3 handed. I would fold.
  11. Is this a lesson on how lucky you are or how easy it is to slow roll when your on the internet?
  12. Bro, I just did the same thing. I never went past $200 and I won a $3 655 player MTT. $407.50. I was askin my friends the same thing. I'm gonna play more $3-$5 MTT and $10 Single Tables. I play cash games alot too though, and I make easier scores in those....not sure how to mix that in.
  13. I don't think I'de call the UTG raise. But from your point of view, alot of my friends like to do min raises form under the gun to pump the blinds up. I think you either needed to fold or go all the way with the hand preflop. When you raise, you need to be willing to make a stand to a 4 bet. losing 30% of your stack is not worth a good lay down.
