  1. PT4 > HEM It's easier on your computer and overall simpler to use. But try both and see for yourself.
  2. I'm going to give it to you straight, you botched the bvb hand pretty bad. (Don't take offense to this. I botch hands all the time but it is important that you recognize it. In tournaments when we are 100bb deep, the value of middling pairs do not come from trying to build a pot preflop. You are trying to hit your set and play a huge pot, or keep the pot small and play as close to perfectly as we can against the opponent in position. Having said that, I don't think the raise preflop is bad, but just realize you aren't getting too many folds when stacks are this deep and his calling rang
  3. On the earlier hand vs villian: Why are you not value betting the river? Villian representing 2 pair, sets, big draws with a pair, or over pair on the turn. A set is leading this river a huge portion of the time. If he did have 2 pair (which is most likely given the check on the river) you now have hit the gin river and it's still going to be hard for him to fold. I am putting out a healthy size bet on this river.
  4. All I've heard from dealers in Vegas is complaining about the lack of tipping among regs and Europeans.
  5. Thanks a lot worldrecord! Heres to finishing the year strong and killing 2018!
  6. Thank you Gilbert! I haven't put enough time into online in the past 6 months. I'm honestly not even sure if I'm +EV in the online games anymore. I haven't put the work into it this year and I'm not sure if I can come close to making the same hourly online that I am making in the cash games in Florida. Having said that, I will certainly consider a move back to PA when regulation hits. I am also fairly home sick. I miss my friends and family, but not the cold weather. I have been following along with your blog too. Good to see you are still crushing. It motivates me to want to work
  7. It's been a while ladies and gents! Before I get started I just want to say thank you to anyone who has ever rooted for my success or rooted me on during my live and online sweats. This year has been absolutely crazy. It started with me playing 90% online poker and ended with me playing 90% live poker. I have traveled more this year than ever before, playing poker in 7 different states and numerous cities. I have spent the most time in Las Vegas and Tampa but I wouldn't call either of them home at this time. To keep up with my latest Poker Travels, go to https://www.safeo
  8. I've done a bad job at updating this thread. I had to evacuate Florida the other day because of the Hurricane. I decided to come to Vegas and play the Venetian series. I ended up final tabling the 100k... https://venetianpokerroom.blog/2017/09/14/event-22-chris-perkins-eliminated-5th-6838/
  9. In 2018 I am going to be traveling outside of the US. I want to spend time in Europe and Thailand specifically. If I were to get set up with you guys and get a place in costa rica or mexico for a month, would I be able to continue to play on PS, Party Poker, 888 etc.. during my travels around the world?
  10. Lots of satis. Terrible structures.
  11. I think it counts if you didn't define the rule of no rebuys at the beginning. If this isn't okay, then what rebuys were okay? A $50 rebuy with 4 rebuys and an addon would be over the $215 mark, is that a disqualification too?
  12. Thank you all for the support! This month of travel was great! It started with a final table in the Jacksonville, FL series 50K where I got 4th place. I bricked the main event there and bricked all the events at New Orleans. However, I crushed the cash games at both places and had a profitable trip coming into Tampa. I've now been in Tampa Bay for 2 weeks and it has been amazing. I'm pretty sure this is where I'm calling home for a long while. The games are just freeking good. I've been playing mostly cash games but have also mixed in some tournament. Just hours ago I outright won t
  13. I don't know what to say. It's 5:18 a.m. here in Tampa Bay, Florida. I just finished a successful 7 hour, 2/5 cash game session, ending up +$2000. But I am feeling empty. Tonight was the first time I saw the evil side of what I consider a fun game. Typically I play online poker so I never have to see the bad players or gamblers in person as they consistently lose playing far from optimal. There was a man, a lawyer, probably in his mid 50's. Someone who probably makes more money than I will ever make in my life. He sat down with the table max of $800 and played every hand, raisi
  14. Hey guys, Tomorrow is when the real journey starts. The first 4 months of turning "PRO" have been unbelievable and it's about to get better. I am leaving for Jacksonville tomorrow for the BestBet Poker series. I will be there for 8 days and playing the $1,100 200K GTD to round up the trip. After Jacksonville, I will be flying directly to New Orleans. This was sort of a last minute trip. New Orleans has been on my bucket list for years and this seemed like the perfect time to go. My flight was super cheap from Jax > NO and the WSOPC is going on while I am there. I will playing even

  16. Day 4! getting closer to the final table :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mSrGOYb3vk
  17. Hey guys - Just got back from Philadelphia for the Sugarhouse Main Event. Min cash :/ (fun time though) Next stop: Cleveland, OH this weekend. Slowly I am getting the vlog up from my week in Cincinnati (leads up to my Main Event Final Table) Here is day 2 (episode 2) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QMsgTH6Qta4&t
  18. Wasn't sure if I was going to edit a vlog because I thought it might be boring. Let me know what you guys think about VLOG #1 (Day 1 in Cincinnati) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PICYoH57EVY&feature=youtu.be
  19. Another quick update. I just got back from Cinicinati and have been trying to wind down from all the live poker I played. I ended up getting 8th place in the Main Event for $13,537. I was quite disappointed (as you can see in the picture below) at the time because it was more than $114,000 for 1st, but I am over it now. I came into the final table as the short stack and laddered up 2 pay jumps. Next is the Poker Night in America series here in Pittsburgh, PA. I am going to try to play every event, including the small ones, to try to win the leader board. If it becomes too diffi
  20. Thank you guys for the love! Quick Update Things have been going really well since I lost my job. I have been playing a lot of cash and have seen some great results, both live and online. This Monday I will be leaving for Cinncinati to play in a short tournament series. If anyone will be there, come say whats up. I may try to VLOG this trip for the first time. Here is the schedule: https://www.jackentertainment.com/cincinnati/wp-content/uploads/sites/8/2017/01/JackPokerOpenGroup.compressed-1.pdf Once I come home from Cinci, my local casino in Pittsburgh, PA will be having a s
  21. Sunday ended well. I have had profitable days in 3/4 Sundays of 2017 thus far. LETS GO! Chris Perkins
  22. Thanks for the support guys! I will keep everyone updated. It will be a tough but fun 2017. Even if I fail, I still win because I am taking the leap.
