VC poker is moving to entraction? WTF is this shit? What happened? Well done ipoker, you can't fail more than this. Really. Look what happened to microgaming. Think they're doing good?
Lots of fish playing last night, of course I tried to catch them, but it looks like they caught me :P Lost AA to QT aif, Q34 or smth, QQ to A8, KK to ..can't even remember, but it was lame. And a set vs set (but that's standard). My biggest "leak" is prolly that I can't fold to fishy players. Of course they're going to hit good sometimes...but...but..they suuuuuck... :)
Think I've decided to not go out tonight....I'm wearing three shirts and I'm still freezing..
It's so cold. So cold. :( It's -10C/14F outside. That's not acceptable.
but I'm sooooo tired .......avg pot is 190 bb ..fr though, but uhh, wtf are they doing?
my fav fish was online and donated ~15 buyins (payday in Swe today, prolly why). he left after ~10 hands, I got to double up my first hand with KK, yay..
only played like 500 hands, posting the graph tomorrow (I'm on the wrong computer atm).
I started playing freerolls 2004 or something like that, had a bf that played poker (<3)..and it seemed fun. So I started.
I remember one hand (freeroll ofc), I had Ax and villain 33 and it was aip, board came down KKJJ5 or whatever and I just couldn't figure out why I won the pot....... well done Alex, well done ;)
I left prima for the merge network (I think it was only one site back then - poker.com). Won some moniez :) ...ran it up to about 9k by playing 2/4 and 5/10 (climbing the stakes, started at like 20NL) FR..and in the good old days you only played one table. I eventually started playing four or so tables. At this time it actually worked to open shove 50 bb's..you'd get 1 or 2 calls (!). I think I played like 30/5 or something really weak.
Left merge for Ongame and the 'new' thing...RAKEBACK:)
Still open limped a lot. Time is probably late 2006/early 2007. Loved the rakeback. Didn't love the regs (afaik merge didn't offer rb back then = less grinders).
Moved to ipoker.
This is when I start to adjust my stats (got pokertracker/hud etc and LIMPING IS BAD!) ... :)
I play über nitty, like 12/10 or something and 16 table 1/2.
Fast forward till Late 2010.
I play ~23/16 (surely it's exploitable but I don't mind it since I think I'm better than many players post flop) on 5max tables on boss..I've dropped down from 2/4 to 0.5/1 .. I think the games (200NL and up) are hard to beat these days (plus I'm lazy as fuck and a true bum hunter and I hate the swings)...
Pretty much everyone I know that plays for a living is "running bad" now..winrate going down, some have busted and moved on..
It's really bad that we (the Eurodonks) have lost France and Italy. One reason to why there aren't as much fish as it used to be. (FR & IT players can only play vs locals on special skins/networks).
Seriously considering moving to Italy or France.
Or trying something different, 'lag fish style'....open limping. Not sure how though. Might be time for some experimenting:)
I'm still a fish
Thinking about becoming a better fish
..possibly quit poker soon.
I've had a little micro stakes (nl10) project going on for 2 weeks or so and I have to say..I give up.
I'm not even going to mention site/network because this is insane imo.
Sure, 15k hands is not enough but I sure as hell don't wanna find out where the f I'll end up if I continue :P
40 bi's is sick imo.
Here's my normal graph (Nov 17). Oh yeah, not doing the rake race, not enough money..because they're really trying this time.
Note to self: always do first rake race (if there are more than one period /month)..
Played an early session and had to FIGHT for my 70 bb that I won, couldn't win with anything.. :( and lots of hero folds, hehe..
Decided to try again, turns out it was a good decision. Lots of maniacs..look at this one...
He (button) played 65/45 and 20% 3bet.
Boss Media (IPN) No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00 BB (5 handed) - BossMedia Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com alex (MP) ($140.93) SB ($165.93) BB ($248.63) UTG ($70.19) Button ($127.85) Preflop: alex is MP with 9, 9 UTG calls $1, alex bets $4.50, Button raises to $13.12, 2 folds, UTG calls $13.12, alex calls $13.12
Turn: 9 (3 players)UTG bets $5, alex calls $5, 1 fold, alex calls $60.86 <---- not strong at all, no. :P River: 7 (2 players)alex bets $28 (<---why not:), Button raises to $114.73 (All-In), alex calls $53.87 <--- which is pretty much a double to my bet. How often will I fold with $25 left? ;)
Results: Button had A, K (two pair, nines and sevens).
Got KK 14 times and won 50% of them, weird. 170 bb in red..stupid kings.
