Are You A Poker Expert? http://ift.tt/24mSm6s
Playing duration: 8 hours
Running bad is a sick feeling, when your top pair, top kicker always run into something worse and you can’t seem to play right because you’re paranoid that TPTK is no good against a random two pair or a set and you fold a high percentage of time on the river after you bet bet bet and suddenly get check rise on the river.Read the rest of this entry »

Just busted the $55 50K in fucking spectacular fashion. Flopped a set of 10s on a Q high board with three players in the pot. Literally bet 2/3 pot on the flop and of course some random with his open ended straight draw some how figures it’s mathematically correct to call and turns the straight with a 9 on the turn. Good ole KJ…..yeap you got it right in a 3way pot.
These are the pots and spots that make me wanna smoke some more pot. I win this hand and I easily cash the tournament and prob make a deep run the way I was playing…..however, now I am spending my time writing this. After sitting for 4.5 hours and playing some of the better poker I have in a while some bullshit like this happens. Yes I understand variance and the fact there is a lot of it when playing MTTs. But the fact that one single event can influence the entire out come of the day is what makes playing these days so hard…..
Yes I understand that Elliot Roe would be telling me to move on and that you can only put in the work and let the outcomes be what they may. But would one argue that it is healthy to have these emotions and that if used correctly can drive a person to get better at the game? I recently listened to a Freakenomics podcast about becoming Excellent at something through hard work and dedication…..
So as bad as it stings now. I will go back to the drawing board and learn from my mistakes. I will do wait it takes to get better. I will not tilt but use my emotions to drive me to a better place…..
Considering going to Mexico next week and taking over my brothers place in order to play SCOOP. I will be in Vegas to gamble the whole second week of March so the back and forth maybe my only issue at this point. Vegas trip is booked and the more I look at this schedule the more I think I should go to Mexico. My brother just got back from an 8 week mission trip and said he wouldn’t change a thing! Probably going to try and sell some action in order to play some of the bigger events. May mean spending the next week really studying as I honestly haven’t played to much, but when I do it’s going to be good! My two biggest online scores also came after two months off. I feel refreshed and that’s always a good thing when it comes to playing double digit hours in front of a computer……Read the rest of this entry »
I have been following “pokernews” on Twitter for some time. Every day there is a seemingly new post that interests various levels of poker players. They call themselves “The #1 source for poker news, reviews, live reporting, videos, and game strategy.” After following them, I believe it – and it’s worldwide. But, visiting the resources provided at the website is even more exhilarating.Read the rest of this entry »
Last week I wrote a post having a pop at certain types of players that drive dealers nuts, but sometimes the dealers get out of line and piss players off, so this week I’m going to turn my rude and critical rage onto them.
I do not believe there is one perfect dealer type because there is not one type of customer; a full spectrum of personalities is required to have a strong regular dealing team, and each will have strengths and weaknesses.
