"Team"

Cambridge Alex --- $?
Lee H --- $?






Hey guys this is Pleno1 and I have a lot of people messaging me on Skype about private coaching and worked out its going to be best for me to post in here what I can do to help improve your game


What am I playing?

I was previoulsy playing 200-2knl on Microgaming and have now switched to playing more volume of 200-500nl, next year I will attempt to go Supernova Elite.

I have posted dozens of graphs in blogs that Ive been very open about my resuts, I will post a new graph soon with updated winnings


Experience coaching?

In my opinion you can only be a good coach if youve been a bad one. I have coached over 50 people in the last 3 years. I started off as a bad coach and believe now that I have the perfect recipes ready to improve players at all stakes up to 500nl.

I am currently coaching numerous people in fast poker games including big winners at 500nl. I can of course give contact details of those guys who will be happy to vouch


Coaching programmes

I do numerous different services, all of which can be beneficial to everybody out there. Remember if you have a birthday coming up and your girlfriend is awful at buying you things then send her the thread! Likewise, maybe you have a friend who you want to spoil for whatever reason

I think my coachings are HIGHLY competitive. I spend a lot of time outside of coachings talking about poker and other stuff with the students and I believe that I take the coaching to the "next" level.


Long Term Buddies  :f_love:

What is it?

This will be a block of 5 coachings

Step 1 - I watch you play for 30-40 minutes
Step 2- I write you an email with my thoughts on your game, what can improve etc and then list a 5 week training program where we will tackle different areas and plan a detailed, action plan on how each lesson will look like and what we will learn and why.

You can send me as many hand histories throughout the week, speak about anything you want and everything is involved in the price rather than add ons or extras.

Reccomended for - Players who want to make a serious effort at moving up stakes
Price - 700


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Bish. Bash. Bosh

What is it?

The simplest form of coaching, I will go over a video (together with you) of your game, playing 4 tables  (this can also be done live) I will go into as much detail as time allows regarding your game, where it currently stands, where it needs to go and how you should do it.

Reccomended for - Underconfident grinders who want ti quickly go over their game. Maybe you are on a downswing, or just want to experience coaching for the first time
Price - 100 USD per hour

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Homework is for grinders

What is it?

This is a 1 hour session where you write to me at least 5 days before the session with something you want to improve on. I will work out a session and email you at least 3 days before the session to prepare the necessary materials (stats etc) for the session and we will try to fix the things you are uncomfortable with

Reccomended for - Guys who really love to disect their game and dont mind putting some extra hours in offline to make sure their game is tip-top
Price - 125 USD per hour

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Video review

What is it?

You will send me a 30-40 minute video of you playing 4 tables. I will then write a full transcipt of how I view your game, what can improve, what you do well (confidence is a big thing) and where to go next. We will then do a Skype call tlater in the week to go over it.

Reccomended for - Students of the game who want to learn more about their game and find out the little things that make the big differences
Price - 100 USD per hour


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -


Sweat Session

What is it?

I will play 4 tables of no limit and go through my thought processes for all decisions. You can ask anything you like.

Reccomended for -  Guys who want to see the little things that big winners do and try and learn something from watching rather than being watched.
Price - 100 USD per 45 minutes


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -


Top 20

Price - 50 dollars per 10 in depth or 20 biggest hands of the month

Real Life!!!

We will do a minimum of 4 hours coaching per day and all meals and beverages will be completely free. I will show you around the city, we will hang out, grind together, do lots of studying and go into real lockdown. Accomodation is OF COURSE included. There may be other grinders here living but you will get all of the attention and their influence should be a positive thing.

Reccomended for - Guys who want to make a MASSIVE effort and be in a high tempo enviroment
Price - 1500 for 3 days

Good luck in your goals.

There is a question as to whether the player with the highest ROI at heads up games is the best player, or merely the best bum hunter.

weeeeeeeeeeeee looks like Newcastle going to win. Ben Arfa too, shame that we got beat off Blackpool last week otherwise would of been an amazing start to the season. Got them in that handicap league too. weeeeee.

Need to buy a new laptop to do this grind on, anyone got a netbook? Play poker on them? What they like?

Oh and I'm doing the blonde updates on Oct 2/3 looking forward to speaking to a few I havn't met yet.

Post by: DMorgan on September 18, 2010, 05:11:28 PM
glgl, I've never used one but a netbook doesn't sound like a great idea. You're pretty much restricted to one tabling and holdem manager auto import takes up a fair amount of memory. Having that running and the poker client as well as a web browser might not run too smoothly? Actually my first reaction was that its really small, you could too easily throw it at something ;)



Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on September 18, 2010, 05:27:00 PM
ha this is too true. im a freelance journo, so want something smallish to take round with me and thought that because i'm playing HU I'll not be playing anything above 4 tables so wont be too bad. Not sure if I'll use HM, may just save HH and convert on other laptop I have.

Its gunna be really tough to be the best at your stakes if you're playing $100s in a year. There are plenty of really good regs that just don't want to play higher because they don't want to deal with the swings etc.

gl though, updates?


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on September 30, 2010, 12:56:29 PM
played 100 games and won 76, just off money though not this roll. Still looking for a suitable website, really confident in the actual games and the 10's/20's are ridic soft on ipoker/stars/tilt

FMEL, just called John Lewis complaining how could someone get something so easy mixed up?!?! The very polite lady informed me that she wasn't even aware that they did a silver version but was very very sorry and would ring me back ASAP. I didn't want to open the laptop in case they wouldn't take it back. Was semi annoyed at this point so just thought fuck it and opened it. White inside. Sigh, she called back quickly, very apologetic I asked if the white version was white on the outside she said no. I apologised for wasting her time. Anyway set it up in like 10 mins and it seems to be doing the job ok, i.e I can log on Blonde/Open my emails and have full tilt AND stars both running. Heaven.

Elsewhere... Andy Carroll's going to be in the England senior squad! Jesus, I really hope he doesn't get built up as a world class stirker too soon. He is good and although he's scored a hat-trick this season against one of the better teams he is by no means a goalscorer so hopefully the fans won't start booing him if he doesn't score 20 goals. You might think wtf, but Newcastle fans are very very unrealistic. I played with him from u8's to u12's and he was a very nice yet obviously "thick" lad. He has done some stupid things in the last 3 years but better doing it when he's 18 and learning I guess. Also big thumbs up to Joey Barton who has been absolutely outstanding this season, both with his performances and his conduct, off and on the pitch. England squad? Why not?

having such a weird train journey.. Family of 4 seated next to me, sitting by himself is the peculiar father who looks a lot like albert einstein.. His very annoying yet very blonde son, almost nazi looking is slavering whilst trying to hug me and crying that I'm rejecting him? Marv. His very attractive (8/10) mum is openly breast feeding his baby sister.  You couldn't make this up.


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: thetank on October 02, 2010, 10:41:52 AM
Nowt wrong with breast feeding on a train. Baby needs fed when baby needs fed. Do you want her to do it in a train toilet? fk that

lol obv nothing wrong with ridiculous fit milf breast feeding just added to the strange journey. There was actually a spare seat next to einstein but kid decided he wanted to roam around and be a nuisance.

Back from Brighton, had a really good time. John Eames impressed me immensely, really really good player. Pab pretty much owned the final table so was fun watching that too.

Played 110 more HU sngs and won 73. Going to play 100 more of the $10 level and then if I keep up same roi then it will be safe to say that I can beat this level (although obv 1000+ games would be a better indicator, I'm not going to stay around playing these games when I'm super over rolled for them and super confident I can crush them)

I don't expect the $20's to be much different tbh, the regs seem pretty bad. Probably won't see a big improvement until the 50's, but would like to play around 300-500 games at the 20's just to make sure/get this roll up abit.

Although I said I wasn't going to, I have been playing a few other games, mainly HU 100plo, which is really fun, the regs on the boss network are abs tez and I'm up 11 bi's over 2k hands.

Shout out for SuuPrlim (def 100% got that wrong) but "lildaves" blog is the nuts and really enjoy reading that, blog moarrrrrr.

Out to interview Jack Elwood now for PokerPlayer, so look out for that in the next couple of months issues.

Run gooooood and win those flips everyone.

Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on October 12, 2010, 02:33:09 PM
Well I just put 1k a side for this as if I put like 5k on I would have to be playing pretty high. 30bi's is quite aggressive I think, but anything over 50 is too cautious IMO. Sticking between 30-50 and taking shots etc is fine IMO, but understand people who do 10-30 and people who do 50-70 as well.

Decided to have a night of fun today. Opened up DTD and played cash and entered an MTT on Tilt. Ended up winning 15bi's at cash and then came 4th in tilt $26 k/o for 3k + change. The hu sngs have really helped my tournament play weirdly and a few things Jack Ellwood spoke to me about yesterday especially stack sizes really helped.

It's amazing I can think I am good and then look back just yesterday and think I'm shit, I'm sure this will repeat for the next few years, or perhaps forever?

Still going to play the same HU sngs as it really doesn't make a difference to my roll etc as I just put abit of it aside to do this challenge.

Work in a few hours, sigh.

Poker does this to me as well, even though I think my level of play is pretty consistent. When your losing you feel like you are the worst player in the world and when you are binking you feel like the greatest. Obv you know in reality that neither is true unless you are Phil Ivey.

Basically poker is a complete mind fuck.

Grats on your bink.

I kinda disagree tbh. When I'm losing I think, OMG I'm running so bad, I'm playing good but just constantly getting outdrawn/running into the top of peoples ranges.

Then you take a break and realise you were playing shit once you've tweaked your game and playing differently/well.

I actually never think I'm playing bad when I'm losing unless I'm like in a $5 tournie and just playing every hand /  shoving gazillions of blinds.

Yeah I'm not saying that, just my game has improved so much since then, even though I did well at the time

I dunno what kinda leaks really pleno but stuff like opening 3x as standard throughout tournaments which is obviously bad, and my push/shove ranges won't have been good enough...

Post by: pleno1 on October 19, 2010, 11:05:02 PM
Right so as most know, had a staking thread up this weekend. I played a bunch of smallish mtt's and managed a 3rd for 2.2k and a deepish run in a stars donko for a couple of hundred. Anyway stake was 188$ and returned like 2.4ish so was a nice nights work, obviously I mentioned earlier that I had another score for 3k earlier on in the week and have made over 1.2k playing cash on dtd and ipoker playing 25/50 spinning up abit of left over monies.

Feel bad as I said that I was only ever going to play HU sng's, but the extra money coming in is obviously nice, will still grind this 1k roll (more now) and hopefully get another couple of hundo games in pretty quickly and keep this roi up.

I'm playing DTD Grand Prix next week, so holla if you're going. Hopefully going to win that.

Got an interview tomorrow morning (8am sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhh) but for a job that is pretty much perfect for me, thanks to Dino on here for helping sort that out. Run good one more time pls.

Look out in next months or maybe Decembers issues of PokerPlayer for a few articles done by myself and hopefully they go down well.

Also gtfooo Rooney.

Bad month or so, played alot of MTT's for a friend and although played really good and had some good scores (like 4 4ths when 2 1sts would have put me massively in green :( ) ended up down about 40 buy ins or so, obv this is nothing for MTT variance and sure bink was round the corner, but unfortunately for me/him certain things happenned to him which meant he wasn't in a situation to back me anymore. He is actually a really nice guy and hope/know he'll sort it out. Also sweated a mate win the 11r for 13k, was heavily involved in all decisions on FT and basically played all of HU for him (not literally but spoke about why he should do every move in every situation, don't call the poker police ya'll) got 0% of that, but meh it's a friend I guess.

Back to the HU's. I took all my poker roll out and put it into different places as I'm an interest nit :P (i work in financial services so obv I am naturally like this) so will redeposit next month or something and grind out some profit before January. Where my goals will continue as planned and WILL be the biggest winner at 20-50$ hu sngs in the world, whilst tyring to play as many games as possible and if I can make supernova for some very nice $ rewards. I really feel like this is printing money playing these games, I talk to the biggest winner on stars at these games and although he thinks I have a couple of minor leaks he thinks I do/should/will crush these super confidently, so if anyone wants to back me for few hundo games of these then holla :)

Just sent the Jack Ellwood article to PokerPlayer, will be in December's issue so buy that yo!

Football wise, startin to get fitter again and playing really good, Jan-March is about getting to absolute peak fitness then want to try and play really high standard next year, we'll see though :)

Good couple of weeks. Just starting to play HU cash for a new friend of mine. Not many people will know him on here but he crushes 200-1knl online and is super smart, he won't be reading this but he's given me a couple of coaching sessions and although he thinks I'm fundamentally sound enough to crush the games he is still helping me out. I am playing 50-200nl on Full Tilt, Victory, Ipoker and UB (haters gonna hate). I sit at 2 tables of every limit and have them set up perfectly across three monitors including PTR being open and HEM, obviously. I think having a really good set up helps so much as you just feel organised and like nothing is gonna stop you crushing.

I'm currently winning 50bb/100, which is ridic and although I know I can't keep this win rate up, I am bumhunting hard so no regs are allowed within a mile of me. Some people may be like pfttttt bumhunting, but I'm like yummmmmmm money.

I MOVE TO GIBRALTAR TOMORROW! wtffffff, new chapter of my life and I'm casually excited. I'm going to work for PokerStrategy.com in a position that I don't realllllly want branded about the forums, so I'll just say nothing about what I'm actually doing. They are a German company and are ridic big in like Russia, Scandinavia and ofc Germany. Really looking forward to working for them as they seem like a super ambitious company and they gave me v.v good vibes when I went over.

I really want to set myself some goals poker wise, but i really am just content at playing when I can and playing well. I've subscribed to 3 different training websites and I'm posting looooooots and looooots in PHA as well as having a couple of private coaching sessions a week. I think I have the fundamentals and I'm definitely giving it 100% atm, hopefully my hard work will pay off and I can have a HUGE 2011 both at work and on the virtual felt. Will probably post more in here as Greeky isn't happy with me posting silly hands in "hand of the day".

Good couple of weeks. Just starting to play HU cash for a new friend of mine. Not many people will know him on here but he crushes 200-1knl online and is super smart, he won't be reading this but he's given me a couple of coaching sessions and although he thinks I'm fundamentally sound enough to crush the games he is still helping me out. I am playing 50-200nl on Full Tilt, Victory, Ipoker and UB (haters gonna hate). I sit at 2 tables of every limit and have them set up perfectly across three monitors including PTR being open and HEM, obviously. I think having a really good set up helps so much as you just feel organised and like nothing is gonna stop you crushing.

Open invitation to anyone for the next 5 weeks..

My company apartment that I'm staying in is ridiculous. I have a sick double bedroom that looks over the sea, really modern fitted kitches, open plan living room with super widescreen TV and perfect poker table that leads out onto a balcony that has Africa on your left, Spain on your right and the sea infront of you. If you are looking for somewhere relaxed to stay and grind then you simply have to come here.

Anyone/everyone welcome.

p.s Lots and lots of fit Eastern European girls! :)

Just had epic night.

Basically the company have 12 company flats that new staff members/vips stay in for X amount of time. I luckboxed the sickest one and today my Czech flatmate invited whole company for a party at our apartment. Fastforward to 6pm, 1 hour before we were due to start letting people in one of our line managers informed him it wasn't a wise decision so we had to cancel the party.

We instead met like 30 of the staff at the local casino and started drinking/gambling. I had quite a few degen sessions of slots and then I went to play poker......

First hand is a "spalsh pot" whoever wins gets £20 to bet in the casino, 9 limpers and I jam blind for £150 (150bbs) some Spanish fish snaps me off for £60 or so and my J4o beats his q9. I give the £20 to one of my colleagues, Melvin and he goes upstairs in pursuit of run good. I get the message that he put £5 on 4 numbers and one of them came in, he comes back with my money and I obv give him 50%++

The table is now full of my colleagues and as we all specialise in poker it was pretty fun. I build my stack up to £450 and then lose £150 when I get heroed off the guy to my right. We were 3/4/5betting eachother alot and it was pretty fun. Next hand he is UTG, he raises, I call and utg+2 raises, we both show our suited connectors and UTG+2 has aces. Fastforward 9 hands later and he raises to £14 UTG again, I 3bet to £34 from UTG+1 and it folds back to him, he tanks for a while and makes it £90 and I jam for £310, he snaps and I show 67hh, he obv has KK.  Flop is 67Ar and he starts going absolutely insane. It was a pretty fucking huge pot tbf, but anyway things got a littttttle heated.Not from my side anyway as I believed it was pretty standard at the time.

I mentioned Melvin before, he is the youngest person in the company ( I am the second ) we were propping/sharing blackjack bankrolls/drinking/shotting/propping on colours every hand etc etc. We hadn't 3bet eachother at all but we definitely felt it coming. He was on my direct left and we both had lots of money infront of us.

Last 3 hands please gentleman.. first two hands I win and then the third hand there is a raise in the c/o (playijng 5 handed) I call the button with a6ss and Melvin 3bets to £35 from the small blind. We all call and there is £155 in the pot and we are all pretty stacked.

The flop is a pretty lovely AQ6 and Melvin bets £70, folds to me and I jam it all and he sigh calls with AK. We had been betting alot all night, drinking together, being degenerate and he had made me money. I let him take what he had behind him back and I took the pot £300ish. I really felt like I just didnt deserve to win the pot, he can't fold and I have luckboxed two pair with sio much metagame in the last hand of the night, it wasn't how I wanted to win more money (I was already up over 5 bi's) Hopefully karma treats me well over next few weeks as I am playing reallllly well in little pots and its adding up to some nice figures :)

grinded  7033 hands in last 10 days.

100nl

$2849 winnings

bb/100 = 41.15

ev winnings = $3029

also rakeback around = $400

+ full tilt $100 bonus

Won around £1500 playing live cash games

Genuinely not running good either, hope I can do this throughout the year, I really want to be very very good. I think I'm intelligent enough to understand and learn and I am definitely giving it my all with training videos/posting tonnes of hands in pha/working with my coach/talking to friends about different hands and concepts. I feel at the moment I'm playing very good and that I'm able to crush the bad regs from 50-200nl.

I really, really hope all the hard work pays off this time next year or it will be a HUGE waste of time.

Also something that I'm pretty proud of is that my red and blue lines are like completely equal. Always struggled to keep my red line above 0. Shows that hard work and studying does actually help.

Theres a huge difference between redline in 6max than HU. I don't really watch vids but know grindcore is a 6max player mainly. 42BB/100 won't be sustainable, 20bb/100 maybe if u bumhunt like made and play/run well.

Good start to the month, not so much poker wise, life is just pretty good atm.

Moved into a new apartment (one floor up from where I am) got a really good bedroom, really big with own balcony and sea views over Spain/Africa, ensuite bedroom etc etc, on other side of apartment got a perfect view over the bay and Gib.

Went skiing this weekend for 4 days in Sierra Nevada which was really good, I was awful at skiing, I booked 7 hours of coaching and told the Spanish instructor to F*** Off after 15 minutes luls. Lots of drinks etc and won 36 buy ins in the home game there so freerolled :)

Played a decent amount online, played one MTT session for Cos which I played sick good for the first 3 hours was in 8/8 comps or something and then in 30 minutes everything fell to pieces, AK/AQ etc etc, sigh. Also bubbled the 50rush where a deep run would have ended the makeup I'm in, will clear that pretty soon I think and a biggy is coming. Owe him a PM too, been busy but need to sort that out.

HU cash is still going really well, winning at 27bb/100 over 40k hands now which is obviously very pleasing. I have eliminated all the 50nl games and now starting to take shots at 200/400nl at the right games when I speak to my backer. Coaching sessions are free and the main reason I took this staking deal, they really are very very beneficial. This Thursday I'm playing against one of my coaches whilst I do a teamviewer session with the other one. The first coach is going to change his game to how different regs play and see how I adjust and adapt, looking forward to it and hopefully find a leak.

Cambridge Alex is coming to Gib next week. Got a few things planned, Marbella in the day, few grind sessions for him at Casino, some nice meals out etc, having a big night out on the Saturday. Get picked up in a Limo in Gib, free champagne and taking to Spain to this club in Estipona. SUPERDUPERVIP service inside with own own staircase leading to middle of dancerfloor, free bottles of Vodka/Rum in the club, free entry obv and then taken back to Gib with more alcohol and hopefully some Spanish chickas. (Hope Hannah isnt reading this)

Also going out on Friday night with perhaps the nicest girl in Gibraltar, so looking forward to that.

Finally sorry to Tightend/mods for being abit of a ***** for the last few weeks. It's kind of in my nature but will try hard to let it go.

Oh also, I never usually play regs, my PTR is very very wrong, sais I have played 12k hands lifetime so often regs will sit me and because I have 18 tables open I can easily turn down their action. Yesterday I played against an 80+ (ptr rating) on tilt and really really owned him winning 4/5 buyins off him and not particuarly running that well. I think by the end of 2011 if I can be playing the bad regs at 200/400nl and be playing the huge fish at 600nl then I'll be really happy. As the difference between the fish at 100nl and 600nl will not be too different.

Won 39 buy ins this weekend/start of week at HU. Must be on of the biggest winners per hand played. Got my setup now. Computer desk that I got from my friend, 24" tv, 19" monitor for ptr etc, new house, leather chair, recliner and leather stool Ready to crush the worlllllllld.

I am now coaching 2 people and its going really, really well. I'm playing a bigger and bigger part in the stable I'm involved in too.

I have crushed all the regs at 50-200NLHU over the last 6 weeks and felt really good.I then played my coach (5knlhu player) and he absolutely owned me. I felt really dejected after the session like I will never be that good as his bet sizings/timings was just perfect and I couldnt re-re-re-adjust.

Enjoying having Alex over. Nice guy.

Was playing in a cash game on Saturday night in Gibraltar. I was up X amount after a few hours and one Spanish guy in particular was donating. I don't really think he knows what he was doing and was pretty terrible.

He limps the C/O and I iso raise with  Ad Td on the button, he calls.

Flop is  Ac 4c 2h

He check calls

Turn is  8c

He check calls

River is  Tc

He checks and I check behind quickly turning over my two pair.

He tosses his cards into the muck and kind of flings them, I see he has the   5c and go to tell him that he had a flush almost trying to get his cards before they hit the others.

One guy got very very angry at me and told me that it was his responsibility to know his hand.

Thoughts?


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on February 28, 2011, 01:53:52 PM
Played Friday/Saturday in the casino and won 24 buy ins :)

11 on Friday 13.5 on Saturday. I think I'm, the biggest winner in the casino by a substantial amount. I think I'm up somewhere over 6k, which isn't bad for like 15 sessions at 100nl.

People saying I'm running good etc, but genuinely think that I have a perfect style for the cash games I'm playing in. I;ve seen good players come in and try and 3/4bet and get into levelling wars and I can safely say I have done this less than 5 times in the 15 sessions. It is all about perfect bet sizing and hand reading and always being concentrated imo. Havn't played much online this month as had super busy month at work/Alex visiting/moving house etc and I think I was up like 20bi's online for Feb. Won about 7bi's this weekend too in like 3k hands but I count that as March total.

Goal of December 2011 is still to be the best in the business. Here's hoping :)

Parents are here atm but havn't actually been to see them yet as been at work. Looking forward to seeing them I'm a only child and never really been away from them for a long time, even when I was away at Uni I would see them reguarly. I speak to them every day on the phone out here and although people think its expensive its only really 0.75p and usually talk when I'm walking back to the casino.

My parents used to hate me playing poker especially considering the fact that I gg'd two credit cards by the time I was in my first semester at uni.

I was going back after Christmas one day and my parents stopped at Sainsburys and were like get a printed balance or something, at the time I was obv super busto and tried to pretend there was no receipts in the cashier, my Mum can read me like a book and snap took the cards and saw I was gg. She was like gbrvhj duybhv f obviously and probably thought I was going to gg the house/car in some underground poker game and didn't want me to go back to Uni. I obv talked her around and we eventually headed for Sheffield.

I had a job in Sheffield doing promotions and gradually began to work my ladder up there where I was making a sick amount in commision. I quickly paiiiiid the debt off and started playing live pokersss, I probably had a 3/4 bi bankroll but played pretty good an obv ran quite well. I got some moniez together but I was still a loser online, I';d deposit 50$ here 100$ there and it would just disappear, usually playing 45mans or something. I continued to play/talk with friends and I think I was actually realllllly good compared to the online results etc I had.

A friend staked me for some 6max cash and after 100k hands or so I was a pretty good online player :) I wasn;t making tonnes, but I was improving all the time and insta surrounded myself with like minded people who were playing ona  similar level and trying to improve. I played a few tournements on different accounts and won somewhere around 20k in X amount of tournaments with a few close ships. 65th in mini ftops m/e aava10 on j72 for chip lead, I can still remember little things like that, its quite weird really.

At this time I was still playing live cash and making a really nice amount, I never worked out my bb/100 or my hourly rate but it was def very high and whatever game I was playing in I was one of the bigger regs as I started to get myself a little bit of a bankroll together.


I then began playing HU sngs where I really started to find what I believed to be the nut game for me. I was winning at a very good rate over a decentish sample size and then I started talking to Greeky online. He asked me about joining his up and coming stable and I thought why not. It gave me the chnace to play tournaments that I couldn't handle the variance with on my own dime. I played like 150 games maybe for him and it all ended in bricks/bubbles/small cashes where I genuinely ran terrible. Greeky gg'd his roll at DTD and I was really gutted that it was ocming to an end as anybody who knows him knows that he is a top, top guy.

I had put all my bankroll into other things now so now was "poker bust" I was approached by a friend to start playing HU cash for him and although I was hesitant at first as I had only played HU SNG's I eventually agreed as I wanted to spin some money up.

I started to get coaching off said friend and his friend who also now has 25% of all my action (I keep 50% and 100% of my live action) and they were really good coaches, they ironed out all my weaknesses/leaks and gave me confidence by telling me how good my strengths were. Fast forward a few months and I am winning at 28bb/100 at a decent sample size and about to move up to 200/400nl.

They have added to their "stable" (I was the first one) and I give the new guys alot of help doing sweat sessions, answering hand history queries etc and the two stakers/coaches have expressed a desire for me to join them in managing/fnding/coaching the stable as I move up the stakes and they add. I am also coaching 2 micro/small stakes players as I believe my  analyitcal approach to poker can really help some guys out who play 10-100nl. I see so many people doing basic, fundamental mistakes and I enjoy helping people as I know not too long ago at all I was in their position.

Greeky now has money, and the makeup I was in/which was wiped (or so I believed) is now there. I want to clear it, he knows this and I know he wants me too. Obv. Its actually a pretty similar situation to his deal with The Poker Farm where all sides would just like it cleared. I guess if I did clear it it would give me a chance of binking a few $$$$ too. I hope we can come to some arrangement :)

Was playing in a cash game on Saturday night in Gibraltar. I was up X amount after a few hours and one Spanish guy in particular was donating. I don't really think he knows what he was doing and was pretty terrible.

He limps the C/O and I iso raise with  Ad Td on the button, he calls.

Flop is  Ac 4c 2h

He check calls

Turn is  8c

He check calls

River is  Tc

He checks and I check behind quickly turning over my two pair.

He tosses his cards into the muck and kind of flings them, I see he has the   5c and go to tell him that he had a flush almost trying to get his cards before they hit the others.

One guy got very very angry at me and told me that it was his responsibility to know his hand.

Thoughts?

Was he in the pot? Does he stake you?

If the answer to either of these questions is yes, then fine, if not tell him to stfu.

If he just threw the cards into the muck you have no responsibility to announce his hand.

If he tabled his hand, you should tell him he's won.

I had a job in Sheffield doing promotions and gradually began to work my ladder up there where I was making a sick amount in commision. I quickly paiiiiid the debt off and started playing live pokersss, I probably had a 3/4 bi bankroll but played pretty good an obv ran quite well. I got some moniez together but I was still a loser online, I';d deposit 50$ here 100$ there and it would just disappear, usually playing 45mans or something. I continued to play/talk with friends and I think I was actually realllllly good compared to the online results etc I had.

A friend staked me for some 6max cash and after 100k hands or so I was a pretty good online player :) I wasn;t making tonnes, but I was improving all the time and insta surrounded myself with like minded people who were playing ona  similar level and trying to improve. I played a few tournements on different accounts and won somewhere around 20k in X amount of tournaments with a few close ships. 65th in mini ftops m/e aava10 on j72 for chip lead, I can still remember little things like that, its quite weird really.

At this time I was still playing live cash and making a really nice amount, I never worked out my bb/100 or my hourly rate but it was def very high and whatever game I was playing in I was one of the bigger regs as I started to get myself a little bit of a bankroll together.


I then began playing HU sngs where I really started to find what I believed to be the nut game for me. I was winning at a very good rate over a decentish sample size and then I started talking to Greeky online. He asked me about joining his up and coming stable and I thought why not. It gave me the chnace to play tournaments that I couldn't handle the variance with on my own dime. I played like 150 games maybe for him and it all ended in bricks/bubbles/small cashes where I genuinely ran terrible. Greeky gg'd his roll at DTD and I was really gutted that it was ocming to an end as anybody who knows him knows that he is a top, top guy.

I had put all my bankroll into other things now so now was "poker bust" I was approached by a friend to start playing HU cash for him and although I was hesitant at first as I had only played HU SNG's I eventually agreed as I wanted to spin some money up.

I started to get coaching off said friend and his friend who also now has 25% of all my action (I keep 50% and 100% of my live action) and they were really good coaches, they ironed out all my weaknesses/leaks and gave me confidence by telling me how good my strengths were. Fast forward a few months and I am winning at 28bb/100 at a decent sample size and about to move up to 200/400nl.

They have added to their "stable" (I was the first one) and I give the new guys alot of help doing sweat sessions, answering hand history queries etc and the two stakers/coaches have expressed a desire for me to join them in managing/fnding/coaching the stable as I move up the stakes and they add. I am also coaching 2 micro/small stakes players as I believe my  analyitcal approach to poker can really help some guys out who play 10-100nl. I see so many people doing basic, fundamental mistakes and I enjoy helping people as I know not too long ago at all I was in their position.

Cheers mate but it's up to you. I don't mind forgetting it now. Happy to stake you in the Gib live cash games though :)

The guy was an old Spanish guy wearing rags as clothes and didn't even know what hand he had. I guess he thought he had a straight draw on flop and didnt check to see if he had a club. I don't particuarly want to win like that against guys like this. I was talking to Alex over dinner one night and playing fish and playing drunk people who donate money and also against people who cant afford to lose the money and I think since the conversation I subconciously care far more than I should do.

I think what you did is fine mate, as long as you wouldn't do it when it was him in a pot vs someone else (which i know you obv wouldn't). If you chose to keep quiet, thats fine too, after all his hand did hit the muck.

Just walked int Spain takes abotu 6 minutes and went for a Tapas with my flatmate Luis (legend) first time I've ever had Tapas and really enjoyed it. Weather was nice, like 14 degrees at night so really nice to just walk the streets, feels like being on holiday still.

Watched like the first match I have since I got to Gib. I used to have a season ticket for Newcastle (14 years) and went to most aways too, even when I was at Uni. I now don't even watch huge games which really is a shame. Enjoyed sitting and watchign the match over a few beers, David Luiz and Drogba were incred.

Yes and unforunately will have to politely decline, at least for this month anyways as I intend to be playing v.drunk when playing live which kind of leads me onto my next point.

Last month only played like 8k hands online which really isnt acceptable as really do want to learn/improve/move up/win moniez.

Will look to put lot of time in this month on the virtual felt, so will probably post some epic hands/figures etc at end of month.

Played an hours session vs Richard Finney (Friend of LilD) last night and thought it went super well. I think my bet sizes have always been my strongest point but I'm now adjusting alot better. Getting the aggresive stance in the game and having the initive really helps and I really 2 months ago I wasn't really forcing the issue and was just waiting to own people woth my good bet sizing when I had good hands.

I'm going for dinner this evening with one of the guys in the stable then we're going to a Jazz night with a bunch of America/Argentinian/French guys/girls. Should be good.

MY parents are now on the Costa Del Sol, we went for lunch yesterday and hopefully see them all weekend.

[ ] Fun weekend of grinding.

Played like 3k hands of HU on Friday night, was stuck $700, but was +1.1k so pretty sick 1.8 minus eyvee.

Get my grind on on Saturday morning instead of going to a carnival in Cadiz. I get out the hole and quickly get 1.6k in the green for the week, still 1.5k under EV which is pretty sick, fast forward 4 hours and I'm breakeven for the weekend. Sigh.

Play all the donkaments yesterday and sold 30% of myself, I played pretty good. I usually spew in MTT's, but I nitted it up early and waited for spots. I oprd every opponent and played against all the greens (fish) got chips then got ridic coolered in nearly every tournie and ran AKhh into AKsc and gg in the 109.

Railed my coach to a 2nd in the DNG on Saturday which was fun though.

I've agreed to myself not to play one more tournament in 2011, if anyone see's me regged for a tounie they can snap ask me for $10 and I'll insta send. I really, really want to be the bussssinesssss at HU cash and wasting time playign tournies is just stupid where I could be spending that time watching videos etc.

I now have subscriptions to bluefire, cardrunners, leggo and decues cracked and I'm going to spend time watching these videos when I would normally be procastinating.

So a break even weekend, but lessons learned so going to take it as a +.

Going to tapas tomorrow with work friends then watching Barce/Arsenal, should be a sick game. Will probably grind 1/2 hours tonight.

Goign to a carnival in Spain next weekend which should eb good. Thing is everybody dresses up and if you dont they look down on you as some Brit who doesn't respect their culture while they openly accept and greet alll the sluts wearing Ann Summers policewomen outfits, whilst I of course encourage the wearing of such outfits I think its ridic that they think it is them "respecting" their culture. I hate fancy dress, never have liked itr and would much prefer to just zone in a shirt/jeans.

Obv when I say spew I don't mean I spew lol. Just mean I never seem to close, but I get stacks alot of the time. Like spin up to 25k, then just constantly losing flips and getting gg'd. I would post my tournament chip ev but everyone would be like that means nothing etc etc, but it is ridicccccccccccccc.

Like I've had 4 shots in the past of a big 6 figure sum and been totallllllllly fucked over and you can moan all you want on forums but everyone will be just like meh, variance, wte. Which is whyits so hard to do it on your own dime and having a limited bankroll. Although with Greeky I didn't get any coaching  (he would obv look at any hands that I want) he totally understood MTT variance and knew that things would eventually come together and a big bink was around the corner. I still think ti would be if I was still playing MTT's.

Also I think on the subject of spewing, "splashing" around in the early stages of MTT's is fine if you think you have a considerable post flop edge.

[ ] Fun weekend of grinding.

Played like 3k hands of HU on Friday night, was stuck $700, but was +1.1k so pretty sick 1.8 minus eyvee.

Get my grind on on Saturday morning instead of going to a carnival in Cadiz. I get out the hole and quickly get 1.6k in the green for the week, still 1.5k under EV which is pretty sick, fast forward 4 hours and I'm breakeven for the weekend. Sigh.

Play all the donkaments yesterday and sold 30% of myself, I played pretty good. I usually spew in MTT's, but I nitted it up early and waited for spots. I oprd every opponent and played against all the greens (fish) got chips then got ridic coolered in nearly every tournie and ran AKhh into AKsc and gg in the 109.

Railed my coach to a 2nd in the DNG on Saturday which was fun though.

I've agreed to myself not to play one more tournament in 2011, if anyone see's me regged for a tounie they can snap ask me for $10 and I'll insta send. I really, really want to be the bussssinesssss at HU cash and wasting time playign tournies is just stupid where I could be spending that time watching videos etc.

I now have subscriptions to bluefire, cardrunners, leggo and decues cracked and I'm going to spend time watching these videos when I would normally be procastinating.

So a break even weekend, but lessons learned so going to take it as a +.

Going to tapas tomorrow with work friends then watching Barce/Arsenal, should be a sick game. Will probably grind 1/2 hours tonight.

Goign to a carnival in Spain next weekend which should eb good. Thing is everybody dresses up and if you dont they look down on you as some Brit who doesn't respect their culture while they openly accept and greet alll the sluts wearing Ann Summers policewomen outfits, whilst I of course encourage the wearing of such outfits I think its ridic that they think it is them "respecting" their culture. I hate fancy dress, never have liked itr and would much prefer to just zone in a shirt/jeans.



Lol, the irony.   ;)

Had second game vs a blonde member this week.

Just for anyone who doesn't know, I posted a thread last week asking to play blondes HU for an hour or so and I talk to one of my coaches over th spots etc, its crucial to have a game going for an hour when I'm getting a coaching session other lot of valuable time lost.

First game I played Richard Finney, LilDaves mate and I think I won 3/4 buy ins or something and was quite a decent game. Yesterday I played Karl "Discomonkey" Fenton and we had a sick match for under an hour and lots of really fun dynamics were made. Won like 4.5bis but I def ran v.well.

Will post more ITT about the future matches I'll be having as it's always fun.

It's obviously bad. The guy had been a super spew-monkey and of course I want action in the future. There are 5-6 of us who rail each others games allllll the time whilst playing ourselves. We never comment in chatbox really and Todd was just lolllling after the gent left.

Def think its bad to berate usually though.

Sorry for the hand historys guys. I guess I posted them because of the flaming I got on t'other thread about running good. March really has been v.shit for me. Overall I'm up 2.5k but could have been a sick (6k+) month.

I feel really settled at 200nl now, whenever you move up a limit the first 2k hands or so is a breaking in period kinda thing.

I've played alotttttttttttttt this weekend. I've gone from being like 10 buy ins up to being 4 up, which is abit gutting as I had really grinded hard.

Again apologies for posting all the hands, sometimes better to just get it off your chest and I guess my tilt is better here than spewing on the tables.

Guy left without saying GG, so I guess we won't see him again.

It's 6.50am now. Sigh. Watched TTIHAY tonight.(5 points for anyone who knows what film I'm on about)

The best in the business, over and out.


edit: wow. 2300$ worth of coolers ^^ didnt realise it was that brutal. Nevermind still profit for weekend grind.

6bi's but if its vs a guy who is making it 30-50x pre and jamming 200bbs all the time and I feel like I'm playing good I;ll carry on.

This weekend was the worst I have ever ran in poker. Feels pretty sick, if I was running at ev, for the year I would be winning at 37bb/100 over like 70k which is just really huge. Unfortunately I've met Mr Variance and I am "actually" winning at around 16. Hurts alot when you know you're playing really good.

Taking the rest of the week off and then coaches come to GIbbbbbbbbbbb next week. Will relax with them and I guess try and get out the smallish makeup that I'm in, feels sick that I was 20bis up around 4 days ago! March has been really shitty for alot of my mates and wish it would just gooooo.

April ftw.

Nobody really reads my diary and this got lost in Greekys. Abs gold post and makes so much sense imo. It's posted by Dubai btw..

Thought id better post because it sounds like I lead the life of riley!

Whilst people have have a certain impression of me, my life is full of wastefulness and obvious regrets. Im a huge underachiever in poker, obviously live and particularly in the days when poker was easy. Getting drunk before tournaments and treating the whole thing as a joke was ridiculously immature and naieve when those were the days to get set for life.

I been broke more times than anyone i know, and every time it gets harder to get back on your feet, these days people aint as willign to take shots with the variance and outlay massive and when you look round at people who you and probably they consider themselves as inferior poker players, who have houses, cars and money for life- then obviously you are going to have regrets at being wasteful.

As for being "balla"- theres types of things that i regret wasting money on- strippers in UK is an obvious one- charging extortionant fees and most of them are just midgrade munters, the clubs act like they are your best friend whilst selling you overpriced champagne. And the funny thing is poker players are smart, far far smarter than strippers and waiters and we can see they cant even SELL their product well. There is no subtly, and they arent even good at what they do. They dont deserve your money. A huge life waste and massive -ev

Nightclub spending- I spent £20k in a club when i had a £21k roll, and was on tilt all night because people just kept stealing bottle after bottle of Cristal when there was a famous rapper giving it away for free next to us! In terms of a nightout I didnt even enjoy it that much, biggest waste ever for sure. And id say spending money in a club is fine as a once ina  while thing for a celebration as long as thre are a few bill splitters and everyone has the same rough idea ofwhat they want to spend- dont want to be arguing with friends after as life too short for all that. As a regular thing like I used to do, then its a total waste.

CCR for food bills- Had a £2200 roll, lost CCR at Ramsays for £2k. Best meal ever, no regrets. Dont think this is a leak at all, obviously you can get the occasional one where you are massively under ev and lose- i lost $1k bill in Fix where i protested about going, then lost CCR ater eating a $12 starter as a main and drank water- but generally i never regret paying a lot of money for food and drink at meals- id happily spend my whole roll at most points for an amazing meal. FWIW Nobu is dross and massively overrated, proper tourist food- Umu makes it look like Yo Sushi

Holidays- another thing i wouldnt consider a waste- memories are there for a lifetime- i spent £35k on 10 days in Mauritius which was prob half roll, and best 10 days of life- would never regret spending money travellig, seeing the world etc- obviously upgrading on flights is a debatable expense, but personally if its long distance then its well worth it- if it means u aint jetlagged and can enjoy where you are going instantly, then money is irrelevant if u have it, or the person you are travelling with has it haha

Casino gambling-is nowhere near as bad as people make out on here- its only a tiny bit under ev, and as long as u bet big and quickly then u wont be losing much money longterm and will have some fun. Just dont bet small amounts for a long period of time

My advice- quit job, go travelling- But have a backup out, ie maybe get a 4month sabbatical if they allow it? can always sack it off when get back if u choose

Booked day off work and the weekend to go to Malaga to play the Estrellllllllllarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Should be great fun, let me know if you're coming out guy :)

Heard from gawa that there was like 15+ people coming out and I forwarded the link onto liiiiiiiiiildave and cambridgealex, if they come out they will obv crush teh cash. Should be good :)

Not playing poker this week concentrating getting into a good schedule as I have some huge tasks at work in the next 4/5 days and being tired at work will hinder me doing them to the best of my ability.

Just referred a friend for a job here at PS, if he gets it I ship a $6k referal bonus + another Brit here in Gib.

I've been asked off a site to produce some rush videos after they seen my girrafes/spoke to 2 of the guys I have been "coaching" at rush.

Going to do it in next couple of weeks and will send it to anyone interested,

Play HU as good as I talk? You are making strange inference to my luckbox admittance above!

I did win 4k you are correct, and one of my great strengths is the insta cash out (ESP after getting hacked).

I have 500 on line and will gladly wager 20% of that in a luck box game of HU @ 50/1 against you after your game with negranu tonight!

Of course if I manage to fluke an early double thru I'll gladly open another table with your money

lol gtfo

I lost AKVAQ, and pair vs huge draw on turn.

However......

Greeky doesn't play HUNL, he played good and is obviously a very good hand reader.  He genuinely owned me in a couple spots and I would love to play again.

We chatted on the phone and we both spoke about how eachother played. Was enjoyable.

Playing for a couple of hours is obviously just fun and something for the forum. I mean you think me/Cos doing it for the money? Would obv like to play vs you, 4 tables for 1/2 hours would be quite fun.

In all seriousness I am in abit of a weird spot with poker.

In live cash I've made 146 bi's in around 30 sessions. I have this style where I play live which seems so different to the other winning players, but it seems to work very well to me.

Online, on a huge downswing at HU, but the games I've played at 6m have been really good and winning decent rate.

I feel liek I can crush 100nl 6max online ridic hard and be a good winner at 200nl if I play less tables and concentrate but I think if I ever want to play full time or take it super seriously then I need to sacrifice a little to learn more. I htink I've learned as much as I can off forums/videos which I have literally dedicated hours every day for the last 3 years. I think to be able to beat the mid stakes I need to invest in coaching/play backed with coaching deal for X amount of hands. I sent an email to a couple of blondes that I think would have the biggest impact on me and that I think are pretty similar to me so we'll see what happens there.

Been playing some tournaments recently too.

Some notable scores were

18th in $320 6max ftops for $5k+ bountys (sigh :( )
1st in some donkament on tilt for a couple k.
1st in $50 turbo on ipoker
3 finals on stars

Nice to be playing well in tournaments I have also booked coaching from Aaron Lambert to help me with my MTT game and he will be trying to tweak my 15-25bb play which I think may have 1 or 2 leaks.

IRL, I have a girlfriend now.

She's abit older than me (27) but really attractive and intelligent. She has lived all over world (New York, Paris, Brusells (sp)) and is just generally a really nice intelligent girl (woman?).

She also has the most incred dog and its genuinely fun to be around both of them.

I've always been "seeing" people while I was at uni, playing football etc settling down is a little bit weird but I guess I like it.

She also understand poker which is obviously a big +. She helps me when I'm running bad and is my biggest fan when I'm running good.

Won't post pics as she probably wouldn't like that so.

As you may have seen -http://blondepoker.com/forum/index.php?topic=53688.0 I've taken on my own stable.

I have around 8 guys who will be grinding the micros for me which the opportunity of aggresively moving up the stakes. Most of the guys are grinding 25nl and I can offer them both staking AND sufficient coaching to crush the game.

Matt674 has a sick sharkscope record and I have started him playing 2/3 table SNG's on stars, he has started to crush and will hopefully win battle of the planets. Good luck to him and other Blondes such as DUNK619 who I believe will do very well.

Others who have joined me on this hopefully fun and profitable adventure are people from home who I both trust as people and playersa. Hopeflly by January where alot will change in my lfie I will be in a situation where this possibly -ev investment (for my time I mean not the players) will have turned out to be +ev. I'm not banking on anything though and jsut giving some players a chance to get themselves back on their feet is rewarding enough for me to not regret doing it.

Agreed.

I get the feeling that before long everyone will be visiting that site. They have so many sick pro's who are absolutely crushing the live scene who represent them that it's only a matter of time.

Been thinking about getting staked for a while now and going to give it a shot there. Just got a feeling that's going to be a huge site to try and associate yourself with.

I think your right about being misunderstood. It's so easy to come across not the way you meant to on these forums (i can speak first hand experience of this) and it can take a little while to change peoples opinions of you. But your diary was/is fun to read and having your stable adds another dimension to it.  Good luck with the horses!

Decided to have a night of fun today. Opened up DTD and played cash and entered an MTT on Tilt. Ended up winning 15bi's at cash and then came 4th in tilt $26 k/o for 3k + change. The hu sngs have really helped my tournament play weirdly and a few things Jack Ellwood spoke to me about yesterday especially stack sizes really helped.

It's amazing I can think I am good and then look back just yesterday and think I'm shit, I'm sure this will repeat for the next few years, or perhaps forever?

Still going to play the same HU sngs as it really doesn't make a difference to my roll etc as I just put abit of it aside to do this challenge.

Work in a few hours, sigh.

I havnt thought like this for 2/3 months :):):):)

Played perhaps the best hand I've ever played on Friday. Not in terms of size of pot, but jsut knowing exactly where I was.

This hand led upto the good hand.

I had been straddling to £4 utg every hand, but this time I looked and raised to £4 with A3hh, some guy 3bet to £10 and got 1 caller, I 4bet to £38 and they both call. Flop is  3s 3d 7s, my boss who is very good, wealthy, intelligent etc leads for £52, I make it £114 with a really bad image, and it folds back to him and he tank jams kxss and I hold.

Two orbits later, I raise to £4 UTG, same guy 3bets to £10 w/ £78 stack, some callers including boss again. I obv flick in the £6. Flop is 44A. Boss tanks for 60 seconds and checks, I check, and the guy goes all in for £68 into a pot of £52. Boss takes around 25 seconds to call and I snap make it £128, boss folds AJ and the first guy had K10, I thought he had KQ, but still pretty nice read and I held :)


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on June 15, 2011, 03:50:19 PM
I'm super degen. Like I would bet on anything I can, wsop prop bets, two flys on a wall, pidge and toss, anything. But I never go stupid and bet ridic huge. On Sat I shamefully did in £2k on blackjack which was first big betting spew I've had in a while.

Last hand I have a/7 and q2 against a 9.

£350 on each box, I go to double the a/7 for some reason and dealer who is kinda my friend asks me if I'm sure, I sigh and say no and take a card on 12, comes a 3 obv. I stand and dealer binks a 9 and holds both boxes, I would hjave won £1150 but instead did in £700 on that spin.


NVM was fun thhough and wont happen again in near future as got lots of horses to feed.

Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on June 15, 2011, 04:01:53 PM
2nd hand I have 66.

1st hand I thought it was a really good spot because boss was light (he had like k6s) and the first guy had been making it alot bigger with big hands so when he 2.5x's my opening raise he is never super strong. And also I look really strong too and suited ace in position against boss hu most of the time if I don't win the pot pre.

Paintballing was super fun. Really strategic and we had lots of degenerate gambling. Really enjoyed it and will 100% go back again.

We were playing right in the middle of the blazing sun of Spain though so it was super hot.

Company is having its annual beach party on Sat. We basically get the whole beach, beach club/bar and have BBQ/drinks. It's like 33 degrees at the moment and really really nice breeze off the sea so its not too hot. Will be playing volleyball/beach football etc and should be a great day.

Girah is extending his stay till Sat and supposedly doesnt have anywhere to grind before then, obv snap said he could grind at mine.

Try the casino in Torreuebrada (sp) if not you can come to Gib and there's always a fun game here, if you're looking for something higher, Peurta Banus, Marbella, has an awesome casino that has 2knl running regularly.

I just went into a handbag and luggage shop in Gib and the guy convinced me that this handbag was unisex and perfectly acceptable in Vegas as a "manbag"...

I walked down the street and realised that I'd look gay as fuck, so walked into a shop and bought a proper leather man bag for £50..

Now this is where I'm unsure what to do/how to wear it, if I wear it over my back, surely this is relly easy for somebody to unzip and pinch. Also if I go from a casino to a club wtf do I do with the manbag?

As for looking gay I am totally comfortable with that too. You heterosexuals don't realise that just coz we are gay does not mean that we want to hop into bed with each other. There has to be some sort of physical attraction. And I've seen some of you mugs ain't you don't stand a chance with any man or women.

  • In vegas!!!!

We got here and after a little altercation with a taxi driver we went to the Wynn. My friend was playing the 200r and managed to sort us a really good deal out for £ into $. Didnt have enough for me though.

(http://bestcheapvegaspackages.com/bestcheapvegaspackages.jpg)


Whilost we were in the mall a huge thunderstorm happened, aggresive thunder and lightening, was crazy, the locals told us it was the first rain since December. Jesus Christ I run bad!

(http://images.pictureshunt.com/pics/t/thunder_and_lightning-3318.jpg)

I bought some Dr.Dre headphones and then went in to check into our first hotel/3. Was nice, not amazzzing, but nice. We went to the MGM casino and sat down at my first cash game outside of Europe :d Was no seats at 500nl so just grinded 100nl and lost a chunk. Bought into the 500nl game when there was a seat and ended up winning around 6 bis :)

(http://gizmodo.com/assets/resources/2008/01/Beats-by-Dr-Dre.jpg)

I met someone there and we went to Bellagio for drinks and some food. They started taking drugs and I wasnt keen (it was 9am Gibraltar time as this point and I hadn't slept) I walked back across the strip thinking wow this is the life and then put my head down and had a nice sleep.

(http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQxm5Rj0mzg_ROWj9YVp0X-J8TGssB0Oh51NztRlroCTWsB4XbEnA)

Johannes (Soycd) woke me up in the morning telling me I was talking poker in my sleep  :tongue: He said I just kept saying, I've got 24, I've got 2/4. Probably saying I was all in etc all night. Crazy!

Woke up at 9 this morning, went over to the WYnn and checked in. "Would you like 2 doubles or a deluxe king room sir?" weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. We have seperate rooms and I really, really like min. There is a huge jacuzzi which I'm going to take care of later.

(http://farm1.static.flickr.com/41/84735411_7c6b2577a6.jpg)

I walked out onto the poker room and played some 1/3. Played really good and won 2 bi's or so in 90 minutes and came back to my room to call someone but they were offline so I'm just chilling waiting for them and then will.

People who know me know I don't mind parting with $$$$$, however here the city is just so money driven its sick. We had a 5 minute cab and the meter said $10.50 I was like, just take $11 mate and he was going crazy asking where his tip was, I told him it was in his exaggerated meter rate and then tossed him a couple of $ and said bye! Drnks are free everywhere for poker players, so thats cool!

http://www.vegashotelspecial.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/las-vegas-tipping-etiquette.jpg

Its July 4th today, so a super big day in the states. Will be going for some food, then having some drinks. Will play poker for a while and then get an earrrrrrrrrrrlyishhhhhh night before our WSOP event tomorrow. Reportedly 700k for first? Ship itttt.

I'd been up so long, didn't need to get drugs and stay up for an extra 12 hours, would be seriously fucked then too.

Also I odnt mind people taking drugs around me, but random people I'm with for the first time taking them, I'd rather just meh it off and go sleep :D

Also LOL at Whollyflush, so true, but they are the nuts.

Played with Kevin WIlliams last night, really nice guy and plays good too.

Also they do this thing where if it folds to the small blind, they say "chop" and expect the big blind to chop. On my occasion there was an Asian woman who was super passive and she took great offence to me declining the chop and raising when she completed. Thoughts on this ett?

Standard, those wankers piss me off. I just say, I didn't spend nearly 12 hours on an aeroplane getting here just to chop. :-X

God chopping is so tilting, I will only do it if the SB is a complete whale and seems keen. Otherwise gtfo.

folds to him he looks at his cards, offers me the chop, I laugh and decline. he's like no really I don't mind do you wanna chop I snap say no peel J4 flop a 4 and lose to his Aces. as;ldfalsdfalskfadsfj

tytyty,  wsop today :)

for some people on here they may call the $1500 events a "bowl" but for me its my first wsop event which is pretty special and something I've dreamt about for the last 4 years or so that I've been playing poker. I've had 4/4 winning sessions in Vegas and really feel like I'm playing good. Hopefully I can do a ship!

Other than weed, which I don't do anymore anyway, I've never tried a single other drug - they're not needed and like vinny says, esp not in vegas.

There's lots of things that aren't needed but we still have them anyway.

Drugs are pretty frickin awesome in my opinion although I don't take any these days through choice.

If you want some have it, if you don't then don't. Pretty simple really.

Woke up at 6.30am today, talked to gf on skype and then browsed internet for a while. I was really tilted because laptop wasnt charged so couldnt listen to a podcast in the really sick bath I have here, beomaned my luck and then got into the bath to realise there's a really nice TV facing me on the wall. Weeee.

Wen't downstairs to Wynn cash room to punish some of the graveyard shifters. Went pretty well, ran decently bad and still booked a win.

Busted the $1500 today. 99 v k10dd on 984dd flop, but he jaammed like 90 bbs and someone else all in, soooooo bad by him.

I'm really gutted as I stayed in yesterday, focused and really been "working" out here grinding the games and playing good games and walking away from the bad ones. I am convinced I have a huge huge edge in these comps, but obv the variance is ridiculous. My girlfriend was convinced I was going to win today, but you really have to run well to win these comps and by well I mean getting good hands to hold up and getting coolers on your right side, rather than just getting there when behind.

(http://rinth89.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/businessman-banging-his-head-against-the-wall-ispc026073.jpg)

I think if I stayed here all summer playing comps then I would come out in good profit, I would guesstimate that a 50% roi playing daily value comps is more than achievable. Will carry on grinding the cash games for now though, I really think live cash is my speciality and just wish you could play some more hands per hour :p,  6/6 winning sessions so far and will hope to keep this up.

Going to PKR VIP party tonight at Mirage, should be fun.

(http://nevadablogging.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Mirage-Hotel-Las-Vegas-Night-View.jpg)

Also found out today that I will be moving in with my girlfriend as soon as I get back. Really happy about that as she has a big positive impact on my life. I've never been close to serious with a girl before, but she is definitely the one I want to "settle down with" for now and maybe far into the future.

Havn't touched a drop of alcohol yet on the trip so will probably down my sorrows this evening.

Peaceeeeeeeee out.

Yesterday was crazy night!

Went to meet osme friends in the Miragem decided to go 2 hours early and play a session so I can chalk up anohter cardroom. Really weird casino/hotel, some of it is super nice and others is abit, I dunno. Weird.

(http://image.shutterstock.com/display_pic_with_logo/73964/73964,1200946357,1/stock-photo-the-mirage-casino-hotel-in-las-vegas-8751913.jpg)

Booked a 1.5bi profit to ship the 7/7 winning sessions in Vegas now, then went on to the Revolution Lounge to meet my coach Simon and a few of his friends.

(http://www.vegasgrooves.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/revolution2.jpg)

PKR were doing a VIP party and there was around 100-300 (no idea on numbers :D)

(http://www.pkrbetsbonuscode.com/images/pkr.jpg)

Everything is free, but as soon as we get in the VIP manager rushes over and grabs us for the only VIP table. We're like, meh whatever (Simon/WIll both top rakers on PKR) and he starts going crazy pouring us literally full glasses of Belverdere with sprinkles of red bull. I usually die off Jager so confessed I was "allergic" to it and it basically destroyed the guys as they downed double and triple Jager bombs.

(http://www.my7hops.com/arbit_data/image/344/Grey_Goose_lineup.jpg)

Moved on to Lodden thinks and I got pretty much owned for decent amounts :(

Then.... Vladimir 'Beyne' Geshkenbein came over, he's known for being off his rocker and he came over to our table demanding we drink more. He's done in alottttttt this trip but seemed super super happy. Like anybody who had done in 6 figures would usually be miserable or what not, but he simpyl doesnt give a fuck about money, hes degen but good at poker and knows he can spin up if needs be. I quite like his philosophy on life/poker/brm and he seems to be super happy so gl to him.

(http://uk.pokernews.com/w/articles/4ad3/00f5b0256.jpg)

Anyway after excessive alcohol consumption, he decided that we should play rock paper scissors for decent amounts of money. There was 3 of us, and from being insanely loud and dancing we all insta shut up and turn around to plan our strategy. He declares that he's going to go rock which totally fucks me, I think he's bluffing and will go paper, I go scissors and ofc he has rock. Sigh.

Anyway he's really hyper now and wants to play higer, I agree and somehow in a 4/5 way rps increased stakes game I go rock and they all go scissors. Shipppppppppp it :

(http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Guardian/About/General/2009/3/2/1236010097754/Rock-paper-scissors-001.jpg)

May sound pretty nerdy/geeky without girls etc, but it was really good fun gambling/drinking and the club was super nice.

I don't really remember the next couple of hours but I end up playing slot machines with a girl and her "Mom" they were both super nice and both wore cowboy hats. Pretty comedy, I ran well at slots and then attempted to make my way home.

I stumbled into the Palazzo on the way back and after unsuccessfully finding a poker game I found myself trying to get out. I went to 4 incorrect exits before being in a staff lift "out back" the doors were locked and I did a huge FMLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL as I thought I could be stuck for the night in here. Eventually found a security button and managed to get out.


(http://palazzolasvegas.org/wp-content/uploads/Palazzo-Las-Vegas-10.jpg)

So today has been a pretty epic day.

Woke up, did the usual, went to meet my friend at the pools. Get into the pool area and I'm literally speechless, its really really nice. I pop upstairs to the spa which is very pricey so decide to go to the salon and get my wig chopped too. Havn't been to hairdressers in 6 months as never trusted anyone with my hair, the girl here though cuts Antonio Esfandiari/Robl etc etc hair so I thought meh why not.


(http://blog.cakepoker.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/esfandiari-wpt-win.jpg)

She tells me she used to be going out with a guy who played for Chelsea then moved to Wigan.. Any guesses?


On way out of the hairdressers Cos rings me asking to come to Venetian to meet him before heading out to "this really nice restaurant." I ofc say cool and meet him there.

(http://www.hickerphoto.com/data/media/173/venetian_gondola_t2521.jpg)

We get to the restaurant in the Cosmopolitan and its really nice. We then get told that we are going to the private section of the restaurant that Sunny said is only open once a month. We get into it and it is literally like a chefs dream kjitchen, he is cooking infront of us and we all lined out perfectly.

There is Marky147, Alex Pretty Boy Martin, Cos, Sunny, One of Marks friends and myself.

We have no idea what is coming, I was expecting some sort of steak and a few courses... 24, yes TWENTY FOUR dishes later we are finished and really impressed how nice it was. For every course we had a different kind of alcohol including sherry, lager, wine, etc etc etc.

I knew obviously that it would be the most I've personally paid for a meal but when the bill came we all snap declined to do credit card roulette. Nvm though, was great fun.

We head back to my Cosapartment in the Palazzo. I take back my comments from yesterday what I said about it being a shithole. Cos suite is incred and we played Chinese Poker ff, I won 50 points for a couple of hours, I win 50 points or so.

We get a text from our Mitch that he is in last hundo of the $1500 event from yesterday, hes a great guy so obviously we insta get a taxi to the Rio. On the rail there are like 6/7 internet kids who were railing two American guys who were on same table. We end up having an argument about a river line that some guy took. They disagreed with us (but we were 100% right) and they said something like, "google me and see that I'm miles better than you" ... "hu4rollllllztho?" would have put an end to that.

Mitch finally busts in 60th for $10k.

We go back to the Venetian and I grind the 2/5 game and book another win making it 100% for the trip :):):)

One nice hand, I make it $15 UTG w/k10o, UTG+1 calls and UTG+2 makes it $45, I 4bet to $135, he calls.

Flop is 455, I cbet $115, he calls.

Turn is A, he has like 650 back, I make it 275 and he folds KK.

Going to see Penn and Teller tomorrow with all the Cos, Sunny, Keith Johnson, Keys? and my boss Johannes.

Grinded 100bb profit and then get it in with qq on k529ddxx for 200bb+ each against AJdd and loser the second biggest pot of my life :(

At the 2+2 party now. Just saw Matt Slansky, I'm about to inform him that he owes me a few thousand from Aria! He also has a like 21 year old gf, its pretty com.

LOL that was a pretty sick dinner and most definitely my most expensive ever too. Was talking with Alex after when we were out and we both felt that it was a bit too 'fine dining' for our palates.

2p2 party was super fun.

I asked Slansky where my bucks were and he looked at me bemuzzled. :D

I bought my gf something from a shop in the Wynn though and for over 20 minutes they disputed that my passport was me. Was so ridic and they only gave in when I said fuck it I'm going.

(http://tx.english-ch.com/teacher/jasper/fake_passport_wt_r_1.jpg)

Drank a few drinks and had complimentary food from 2p2, was really nice.

(http://img.rankplan.net/img-2000/images/1185.jpg)

We then went onto the poker floor, if you are the first player to sit at a table you make the rules up.

I plonk myself down and announce reverse holdem. Basically there is 1 flop card, 1 turn card and 3 river cards. It's super fun and people play it so badly that its even very +ev for me too :D I won abit and will put it down as a winning session.

I then went to Tony Dunst (Bond18) and played Chinese with him and his gf, was super fun and we got on well. He is super slimey, but I think he's genuinely a nice guy. Crushed him+gf for around 50 points.

(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_Lp-API5HbS8/TD4IhULbNII/AAAAAAAAAZQ/m_dfr5R2HgE/s1600/td.gif)

Final table I went to was a one with 5 high stakes limit players, they were playing a game called Joe's Baby which was invented by Joe Tall. Basically you get 5 cards, there is a betting round then you discard, there is then a flop, turn and river with normal betting rounds. On the river, there are 2 pots. A omaha pot where you use 2 out of your 5 cards with 3 cards on the board and then a 5 card hand which is the 5 cards in your hand. I think I adjusted better to the game than them and won quite a big chunk.

Going to bed quite early tonight, playing the Venetian Deepstack tomorrow at 12, so hopefully do a shipship.

GN from Vegas. x

Had one super fun hand yesterday.

There was this old guy who was talkign about online players being socially inept and made several comments about me, ofc I just yawnsighed them off and cba arguing with somebody in a 2+2 party lols.

I 4bet him pre in one hand he folds and I show a deuce. Then he goes really wild saying that proves his pointl, socially enept over 9000 times. I yawnsigh it off once again.

I raise UTG to $8 w/ 8c 8d, he 3bets pots it. I cawl.

Flop is  7d. I c/pot his pot bet and he jams on me.

I do a pretend sigh although I know my hand is pretty strong here and have my hands over the top of my cards ready to muck. He sais "gotcha" in a reallllllly annoying voice. I fakenly sighnod.

Turn is  Ahrt and he goes "booooooooom" turning his hand over. I nod and nod again as the river comes  8s 2d 2d

I flick one 8 over and say nice hand mate, just as his fingertip goes to drag in the pot from the first chip I anoounce "ohhhh wait a minute" and say sorry bro.

Maybe a little over line but he def deserved it.

Just grinded the Venetian deepstack. Had 400k at 2k/4k with avg of like 150, lost k10 v 69 aipf, AQ v A4 aipf and AQ v 44 aipf, for 300k worth of pots which would be around 8% of the chips in play with 50 left. Instead I had 100k and 12 bigs coming back at 4k/8k/1k, fml.

Going to win 3 flips and have double average obv.

Some really fun hands though, will do a full trip report tomororw when I bust/win.

Pretty comedy, supposed to have the porn suites in Caesers Place for the weekend but sure did remember to pay for it. Have to be out the Wynn in 35 minutes but I havn't packed/showered/got tournament in 2.5hrs and I'm posting on blonde about it rather than doing something. fml.

Need to double up once for avg chips today, I have a friend whos a really good online player, he has this shoving chart from every position with every stacksize, so been remembering that and will hopefully run decent.

Also was one really comedy thing yesterday.

I had like 300k when the average was 75. I had played so good but knew that there is always the chance that plenos gonna pleno. I walked around the casino in the dinner break saying out loud to myself, I will not spew, I will not spew. Mightn't sound funny but atm was probably really comedy.

Few hands later, I jam same amount with a5o and bb calls with q10. xxxxQ later and I'm out. Was 205k chip pot with avg at 190.


Just went to play 2/5. First hand I straddle. Someone raises, I peel q10cc, flop is 98Jxxc. I click back guys cbet and he jams for 500 with 108. Somehow finds running 10's when I have a blocker for a 1.1k pot. sighhhhhh.

Hey Redarmi, games still super fun, but I just snap left the super fun game after losing that super unlucky hand and moving onto super shows and super cocktails, booking up a super winning trip :D


In Airport hotel now. Flicked in a 20 for an hours session which is very decent imo. Sunny Nagi is here so its all good fun, so much fun I booked an hours slot on this hilariopusly bad excuse for a PC. Just kidding ofc.

First night after finishing pokersssss, I went to a nice resataurant which was  Brazillion Steak buffet, oioioiiiiiiiiiii.. really nice. We then went to Penn and Teller which was insanely good. They are super funny and better than any magic show I've seen. The camera trick was really good.. We then went to The Voodoo Lounge. I remember when I was 18 and with my best friend Arun in "Mood" in Newcastle I said to him FML we are here and some people are zoning in The Voodoo Lounge, from then on whenever we went out we would talk about how some people were having an amazing time in The Voodoo Lounge.

After the show we snap went there and it was breathtaking, seriously ridiculous. By far the best club I've ever been to and would reccomend it to anybody going to Vegas.

Next day we went shopping, I go intop this sports shop and decide I would like to take an American football hat back to England with me. Ichoose one and the lovely lady persuades me to get 2 as its buy 1 get 1 half price. I meh buy it and then she tells me the t shirts are 2 for $40. I buy two then realise there is another one which is really nmice, ofc I have to get the matching hat.. This went on for over 90 minutes and finally I walk out with 20+ hats and lots of matching tops and jerseys. I realise I need to buy a suitcase to take these all home as I had bought a ridic amount of things here. My boss/roomate found it hilarious but I think its a good investment.

After the hat binge we went to downtown vegas, once again I would reccomend this to anybody coming to Vegas, its what Vegas was like pre the new cosmopolitan strip. We ate in a really cool old school 24th floort Binions Steakhouse and had the fattest steak I've ever had. We moved onto Zumanity (A Cirque De Soleil show)which was super super sexual but really funny and entertaining, we had a great time, did some more shop[ping thern packed our cases.

We are in airport atm, fl;ying to Gatwick and then onto Brighton to win UKIPT and a few side events. Really, treally missing girlfriend now, but when I move back we will be moving in together so anybody is welcome to the house warming party. Need to tell parents too, but I'm sure they will be SUPER happy for me.

Hunnnnndreds of pics to follow gents, some of them sum up more than any blog posts could.


What I have realised is that I am a good tournamnet player and definitely hugely +ev in any tournament that is 1500<.. hopefully keep playing good, spinning stacks up and putting myself in good positions to go deep in tournaments.

Anyone in Brighton, HOLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA and we can go eat/drink.

xox

Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on July 15, 2011, 11:54:43 PM
Such a brutal last 4 days.

Played the £100 6max tournie a few days ago. Was chip leader for almost the whole tournament. At one stage I won 15 pots in a row, which is pretty ridiculous, I understand stack sizes, and player ranges/perceived image so well now and really think I have improved immensely in tournament poker.

Anyway, I get it in for a huge % of the chips in play with AJ v K3 and it comes xxxxK. I'd have went to the final with around 30% of the chips in play and have a good  chance with my short handed skills to really do well and get a top 3 imo.

Next day was the UKIPT, will post about my grievences with them in my next post but I end up playing the main and increase stack by around 80% with non showdown hands, eventually I get busted in a spot where I'm pretty unsure about but it can't be terrible.

Played 4 tournaments in the last 2 weeks though so bit of a round up.

WSOP $1500
- No cash, lose  9s 9h v  Kd Td &  8c 9c on a  9c 8d 4d board for 5/6x average with soft table
Venetian $550 - Chip leader ITM then lost 4 60/40's 1 52/48 and chop one 80/20, to send me packing instead of probably getting close to finalling if not more
UKIPT £100 6max - Chip leader going into the money. Lose AJ v K3 for the world
UKIPT Main - No cash. Cooler maybe?

Feels pretty brutal to get close to big scores yet far away. I do have a hendon mob though :P

Post by: pleno1 on July 15, 2011, 11:58:23 PM
Went to bed at 9am this morning, woke uo at 8pm and went to the Casino, sit in a heaven 2/5 game that played like 2/5/10/20/40. I know its a shot, but it was such a good spot and had to take it.

First I lose JJ v AK for biggg pot

Next hand folds to big blind who jams £400 w/  Ahrt 9s, I snap jam from the big w/  9d 9h and then the straddler finds 10's.. no bink obv and a pretty sigh cooler.

Fold next 2 hands then 5th hand of the table I find KK in a 2/5/10/20, raise, caller, I put my arm in the air and high five the dealer pushing all my chips in. 2 callers, QQ and 88. Board runs 8910Qx and I have the 3rd best hand in another huge pot. marvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv.

I walk back down the pier contemplating whether to jump or not as I come back to the apartment.

Looking to see if I can fly home tomorrow.


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on July 16, 2011, 12:02:43 AM
Ok, so UKIPT..

I went down and registered for the £100 and the £550. I then unregged from the £100 as I wasn't sure on timing. I then went back and said can I re-reg please.

It took then 2.5hrs to put me in the system, this is for a £100 comp, ofc I was annoyed but the girls trying to sort it were actually really nice just either incompetent or computer was fucked, either way I got no comp of any sort and I kinda shrugged it off as whatever.

Yesterday I get to the main and they tell me "sorry sir we dont have you on the system" we will ring the G and sort it for you asap.  "Hi we have a Patirck Leonard here, ohh he was in yesterday for 2 hours was he? And he is 100% registered for day1a yeh? Cool. Oh wait theres a problem"...

The problem went on for 50 minutes and I missed almost 10% of the first day where I would have my biggest edge  (being 300bb deep vs the retards) and when I finally get to my table "sorry sir all sorted now" I get told I have bene blinded down for an hour! Obv I wasn't happy about that.

Such a well run series from the outside but seemed really amateurish to me. Dena was very apologetic and did try very hard to sort it tbf.

Everybody gone to casino to play cash and drinking games, but I just really cba. Havn't ate in two days though and feel pretty shitty with everything which is obviously bad, sorry Jared :(

When I get back to Gib I move in with my girlfriend and will be a new stage to my life, really unsure whats going to happen with poker, feel like I'm playing really good, and I don't want to be THAT guy who goes on and on about how he runs but just feels like "its always me".

Have been awake all night, went to Mcdonalds at 8.30am to buy a newspaper, read for an hour or so and have a drink as nothing in the house.

Get in and there is 5 homeless people camped in the corner of the "restaurant" the manager sigh walks over and tells them that unfortunately they will have to leave the restaurant. I ask why and he sais unfortunatley they cant stay and not eat and that he is just doing his job. I snap buy them all breakfast and they sit there hopefully for a few hours.

I have no idea how people get homeless, but IMO everyone deserves a second chance and I feel really, really bad for them. I didnt make a huge fuss of it and they could hardly speak because of hunger/freezing to say thankyou. I smiled and left them to feast on their first and probably only meal of the day :(

Karma maybe.

Yeh paid like 2x the flight cost for bags. sucks but meh. The return button doesn't work on this computer so if I wrote what I wanted to it would just be a giant wall of text. Funny story yesterday though, me and discomonkey get in a taxi, we're like take us to a decent pub. He is like ohhhh I know a really good place for proper nosher, we're like eh? He takes us literalyl round the corner to the Barley Mow. He tells us to avoid the gay bars here as they can be pretty dodgy or something, we get into the pub and its like the capital of queernees full of captain queers. Obv not homaphobic but really weird how he told us to stay away from the gay bars then takes us to the most blatant gay bar you can imagine.

On a similar theme..... I met a guy in Vegas who si rekowned online for being a pretty sick mtt player, he had a big final table at the series and we got on really well when we played some mid stakes Chinese.  He added me on skype yesterday after busting the main and I was giving him rubs about his pink hat he wears alot... he was like "awww but I love pink!" I snap  "YGOS???" and he's like "YA" I'm like nobutsrsly? and he's like ya.. and I'm like nahhhhh but srsly.jpg? and he's like yarlyowl. I say I obv don't have a problem but think he's levelling me, he snap sends me a pic of him kissing his bf.

I was supposed to get up at 6am today and get a taxi to the train station then a train to south terminal of gatwick and then shuttle from south to north terminal.  I woke up at like 4am instead, snap watched the apprentice, Susie out :( :( :(  she's obv the stone colds. I get a taxi straight to gatwick instead. Those who know me better know I'm so picky with food, I've never had mushrooms, tomato sauce, bacon, any pizza but margherrita, any pasta but spag bol, pies and lots of other things. I get to airport and they have this steakhouse thing, the last meal I had was in captain queers yesterday which made me really ill so was really happy. Get inside and they are just serving breakfast, ofc I dont like eggs/bacon/sauce so have to sigh decline. Now moving in with gf, beeppppp beeeeeeeep be be beeeppppppp. I#m actually going to try to cook more and learn to like more foods as eating rare steak 4 times a week will put me on an early death bed :/

LOL @ that conversation

FYL @ not eating full english....


Chicken stir fries and Chili are the stone cold nuts for fussy eaters. I said in é if you eat white be it fish or chicken most of the time and just get the steak out a couple times a week it's so much better for you. You'll prob enjoy the steak more as well given it's more of a treat.

Was waiting to get on plane today and there was a little hold up, I had this guy infront of me with his jeans halfway down his pants and hairy arse sticking out, he started asking me questions and then we somehow got onto poker.

He tells me that hes a horse expert and then after enquiring I find out he has bet 3 times. I then enquire what his trick is and he said quietly in my ear "Pick the short priced ones, they are usually the best so have a better chance to win" he was harmless so just nodded etc

Still held up, David Cameron appears on the TV.

"I'm David Camerons witch Doctor"

5 seconds later

"I'm David Camerons uncle"

5 second later

"I'm David Camerons speech therapist"

We were obv going to be stuck sitting next to each other (easyjet where you just get on and sit wherever, but because I bought the Dr. Dre headphones I let out a semi sigh of relief, get on the plane "I hate hotels, they are only their for people who drink and shag, I did that in my prime but just look down on it now" I went to switch my ipod on and realised my battery was completely empty.

Hey mate, really good.

It's really different living with a girl, just like so much more organised and everything gets done today rather than tomorrow, which is ofc good. I had huge amounts of washing and would have taken me like 1 week to do it all but she's magicked it all in 2 days, shes abit of a hero.

When I was away I had to move out and she moved bags and bags of clothes and other shit aswell as monitors, pc's laptops etc etc, really just grafted for ages to make sure I felt homely when I came back. She knew it was the first time I had lived with a girl and wanted it to be perfect, definitely no regrets/

We get on really well and her dog, I guess our dog, is the absolute nuts. She definitely comes as a "package" but defs one that I really like. Even tell her the L word on a regular basis :)

We are currently looking at 3 bedroom places in Spain and hopefully we will move at the end of August, I think we will be together for a very very long time.

We going out to Spain tonight, around 15-20 of us I think for my "welcome home dinner" or something like that so that should be really nice.

Did you do a rebink last night?

That all sounds really good - she seems top girl; I think a bit of this lifestyle can help your game too; I've had best 18 months ever since I met Sian and I don't think totally unconnected...she's so supportive poker wise.

No...won a satellite but decided to un reg and take T$, was one tabling the Big $162 23/599 in end, and was tired after long week so called it a night. Toby got 2nd, suck online heater fir him

I dunno why but I've taken a huge dislike to this guy. I just found his page and I havn't read it just tilted over his pics. Really want to play him hu4rrollz.

Ok to the horror story that I played...

Post by: pleno1 on July 20, 2011, 03:09:18 PM
Ok so I had been in the UK for 8 hours, I hadn['t slept and I was fucking tired. I had a bed and I was shattered, but obv I swerved sleeping and went to the 6max.

First table is hilar soft. I have 4 fish and Dominic Kay who is obviously at least very decent. I stack him with set vs overpair and then stack up off the weak table. I fold KK pre and I'm right which is very hard in a £100 6max turbo. Hero folds ftw :)


Anyway I move onto next table and I have my good friend Nathan on my left. After 2 orbits I go on to win 15 pots in succesion. Seriously 15 pots, pretty sick. I've chipped up and I am chip leader when there is 16 of us left, 15 paying. The guy on m,y left is a very nice guy, he has a rail of 20 and he really really wants to win, we have been chatting and I've beaten him up pretty badly. I've won 8 hands in a row on the pure bubble as him and 2 taxi drivers try to fold to a hendon mob. FLAGS FTW!!!!

Folds to my button and I raise to 2455 at 600/1200, he jams and I look at the dealer and say count. The dealer says call? And I say count. The guy hears call I guess and flips 66, I have 77. I had it in my mind that if he had under 18 or whatever I was calling and 22+ I was probably goingto fold. I don't turn my hand over (I had already had a 1 round penalty previously sighhhhhh) and find out its like 26-29k not exactly sure what it was. I have like 65-70k

I fold.

Please don't all shout at me :(

I was going to fold if it was that amount and I genuinely thought he thought I said call because of dealer. I didn't want any reverse karmas, I was still winnning a shit load on the bubble but ofc not as much as the 25k. I thought for a minute or so about it and smiled and folded. I felt really good after it, but the next day I woke up and thought.. what a cock. But I'm unsure now if I regret it or not.

so comp goes on, I get it in against matey who now has 30k or so with AQ v Q10. I flop AA2, turn J, river K. Fucking karma!

I build back up and win AQ v AJ. Win alotof nonshowdown, have 80k and get it in against the main pokertube guy Eddydcub or whatever, AJ v k3, he sighs, his 15 man rail sighs, my 15 man rail snores at home.

xxxx, everybody still sighing, K on river. BOOOOOOOOOM.

His rail go wild, jumping, hollering, inyaface etc etc, they go abit OTT, but I don't really mind. We get moved table, 10 left.. folds to my SB, I have 12bbs and jam KJcc, he has A2 in the big and tank calls. 37459 board later and im ooot.

gg lads.

comedy thing is at 4am when there is 3 left they move them over to the Grosvenor (they were at the Hilton) because the Hilton's license finishes t 4am. Such a clart on. Guy who decimated me with k3 wins it obv.

Didn't wanna win anyway obv.

OBV IS OBV!

if you carry on making these decisions based on all this karma bs its gonna bite u in the ass harder than it did there.

im all for being a nice guy and acting with proper etiquette, being a good ambassador/role model whatever. but when it comes to stuff like that, you're playing for a living. you're playing to make money, and you havent done anything wrong, or even slightly dodgy to get the guy to show his cards. its a dealer mistake / also slightly his mistake for turning his cards over.

mistakes happen. anyone logically or rational and im sure you are when you make poker decisions shouldnt give a shit about "karma".

I'm definitely in the 'be a nice guy at the tables' camp, and there have been situations in cash games where I felt giving someone they're money back etc was the right move. However, here I think it's different. Your opponent made a mistake, and now he's revealed his hand. You've got information that considerably now favours a call, and I would make it.

And who knows, this might have been the good karma you were due from the breakfast/homeless people story?


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on July 20, 2011, 05:27:25 PM
I didnt do this to get good karma.

I didnt buy the homeless guys breakfast for good karma.

I did it at the timebecause I thought it was the right thing, but obv reflecting I'm having second thoughts.

I folded and the guy got a 1 round penalty, if I called would the dealer get a one round penalty?

Never folding. Had you looked at the payout structure and worked out how many ££ you set fire to by folding I don't think you would have folded either

Until they start the Nobel Prize for Poker there are no prizes for giving out freebies i'm afraid, especially not when you may regret it afterwards

After running really bad over last couple weeks was pretty angry in life and probably took it out on a few people irl. Last night 15 people or so took me to Spain for Tapas and then went to this huge fair with stalls and rollercoasters etc.

There was this football thing where you get 2 shots and have to score twice, its almost impossible, but somehow managed to bink it twice for the huge prize.

Ingrid went on the huge rollercoaster which was absolutely ridic, I obv held her bag whilst she did it with the others, sure am getting on something that big made my Spanish people.

Got a viewiing for a 4 bedroom townhouse in Spain tonight after work. I currently live in a modern apartment with communal swimming pool/really clsoe to work so will be interesting living on the other side of the border and in a bigger yet probably not as nicely furnished house.

On the pro side, we will have lots of spare rooms for visitors to want to soak up some Spanish sun this weekend.


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on July 22, 2011, 09:27:09 AM
Signed for a house last night :D:D:D

It's a 4 bedroom townhouse with a really good room for playing poker, a really good kitchen for Ingrid and great outdoor space for the dog. We have lots of fruit tree's in the garden which has a little water feature and a big roof terrace which has the sun in the the day. The rooms are really big/nice and its only 2 minutes away from the beach.

We will hopefully move within a month.

yeah wasnt tilted at all, if i won 3 pots where I had 70%+ equity then I would probably have won 10k+ last night, but its cool. I'm lucky in life and playing great poker. I've ran really bad in tournaments over the last 6 weeks or so, but this is standard with MTT's and eventually I will run really good and bink something big that I may think at the time I didn't deserve but when reading back this thread will realise its just tournament variance. You just play as well as you can putting yourself in positions for big binks and eventually they will come.

Story 2 was funny just because mate 1 was absolutely devoed that the girl sacked him off.

obv its really harsh.

I take it he immediately took out his wallet and gave her a grand to buy some new shoes?

he is actually in makeup from mate 2.

sure does have a grand to get out.

Ah sorry, guess mate 2 got the money out then? (Seeing as he throw the shoes onto the BBQ)

Speakign to friends it seems liek I talk to my parents a ridic amount more than my friends.

I ring my parents at least one time every day, btu friends of similar age/upbringing say that they don't speak to their parents for days, weeks and even sometimes months at a time.

Whenever something exciting happens in my life, I insta think about telling my pasrents and ring them whenever I am walking somewhere by myself. I guess it is probably because I was a only/lonely child, but I was really really shocked to see how little some people spoke to their family.

Contrastingly, I almost never phone my best freinds from home, we speak alot online, but I never really pick up the phone and physically ring them, unlike my friends who do quite alot.

Maybe I'm just abit of a weirdo.

The live games are good. Only 1-2, but it runs almsot every night and all the regs have either done their rolls in vegas or just dissapeared, leaving jsut Spanish fish.

It is the Gibraltar masters on Saturday in Gib. Thinking of playing for the hendonmobaments.

Then FTP Series Espana on August 19th which is hopefully going ahead.

Realllllllly iunto fantasy football, made my 7th team now (same team but edit/reedit/rereedit) getting lots of props going, lemme know if anyone wants action. Juat for funand I really like it but usually I just fuck it off so doing this so incentivise myself into doing it, also it will keep my interest in football up which is pretty minimal since I moved to Gib which is disapointing.

Signing for the GIbraltar Pirates too, which is a top 3 team in Gib. Should be interesting!

The players will still play, the players that satalited have already been bought in and Spanish fish <3333333333333333 live satalites, so the casino will be running lots of them. Its probably the most prifitable week for the casino and lots of people will have booked flights/hotels/time off work already. So even if they scrap the gaurantee (worst case scenario probably) then they will  still probably run a £1500 comp.

Anyway I have an insider at tilt who I've forwarded it onto so I'll have an answer tomorrow I assume.

An email every week or so and phone call about once a month, see them 2/3 times a year. Parents have lived abroad for the last 5 years, so keeping in touch is trickier.

Tbh I think my relationship with them is really good because of it, means we don't get any each other nerves and I actually enjoy the time i do spend with them.

Parents live in UK, see my dad about once a year, seen my mum once in the last 7 years. Probs 1 txt every 2 or so months from her and a phone call once a month from dad, I am the eldest of 4.

If i am ever bored, walking anywhere, in the car etc am on the phone to my mates constantly. Probs too much tbh.

The missus speaks to her parents once a week i reckon that is probs the norm.

Speaking to your parents every day sounds abso absurd. Defo seems like an only child thing. Get more mates imo.

Can you ask Jungleman about Full Tilt?

Interested in what he has to say. I heard he was the biggest loser in the whole thing with apparently 6mil in his acct.

This diary used to be my favourite but then you stopped updating it.

When will you kick it off again?

 Has the missus told you in no uncertain terms that its her or the diary?


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on August 10, 2011, 05:10:56 PM
I thought nobody really read it to be honest.

Missus loves it, every day she asks me. WHY YOU NO BLOG?!?!!? shes definitely not like that and actually loves poker.

Updateaments:

Starting 6max, going to be playing on Ladbrokes (microgaming) so expect lots and lots of hand histories on PHA. Already posted some that I played on Stars and glad to see people thinking my creative lines are ok/good.

Had a big big project at work, that I've just finished, but it went down really well and all concerned loved the results, so big thumbs up there.

Think I've already mentioned this but moving in with the gf and our dog on August 24th. Its a 4 bedroom town house in Spain around 5 mins from the beach with a huge poker office/grinding room and a back garden with apple/pear trees and a big kitchen for Ingrid.

Have been very opiniated on the Girah thread in the "rail" and the rioting threads too. Both of them have left me speechless for different reasons every day this week. Shocking scenes. from what I hear I expect even worse to come in the next couple of days unfortunately..

Oh I also entered Chris Moormans $500 high roller fantasy football league, lets gogogoogogogogoggooggogogogo

Read from current post to around page 26, not sure that is the way you catch up on blogs you haven't read yet but made it work. A few things.

Fml to ftp espana going ahead next week, I won a package, asked for the cash equivalent about a week before ftp closed, had the monies sent to my account, played with it for a bit online, then bam ftp closes. So sick because if I just kept the package I would have the tourney entry. Harsh.

Found the read so far really good. Manbags are ok if you can pull them off, Cos clearly can. Your life sounds epic in gibraltor. Keep it up etc. Going to have to carry on reading backwards to get the whole story aswell, read like a slow person, so gg an hour or two :(

Was PS summer party last week and although I was originally going to go, Ingrid was really ill so decided to stay in, sitting next to her and grinding some comps. We went to bed at like 11am and the fire alarm went off at 5am, first time I had heard it and it was really pretty weird. Anyway we get outside and there is like 10 people there (theres hundreds who live in building) no idea where everyone was but felt like a really weird dream. I've been having lots of bad dreams recently, like waking up as I'm half way down the cliff.

Went out for breakfast/lunch/ice lolly with Ingrid. Its like 35 degrees here, so hot and really nice.

I was walking home by myself whilst Ingrid went to get some things from topshop. There was a little boy peeing against a tree and his Mum who looked really posh just standing behind him. I'd pee'd on lots of trees before but just seemed really weird.

Currently lieing in bed snuggling/spooning Basil (our dog) but may go down to the pool in a sec.

Nucarstle vs Arsenal tonight. lets gogogogogo

Got £50 on Boro vs Leeds, gawannnn lads.

Have you heard anything about this Pleno ?
Kremser-Gate – Thomas Kremser, the former Tournament Director of the EPT and one of the most respected people in the game, is allegedly at the centre of a cover-up concerning financial irregularities in EPT prize pools that, if true, will surely come as a massive shock to the European Poker community and anybody who has ever played in an EPT event, as revealed in the following pokerQ4.com exclusive. http://www.pokerq4.com/kremser-gate-thomas-kremser-ept-prize-pools-cover-up2

Surely wouldn't be hard to check this out.

Woke up with pancakes in bed by Ingrid.

Currently grinding some comps and Ingrid grinding (1 table LDO) was her first time yesterday and she just told me. "This is rigged, this is fucking rigged".

Watched Newcastle game yesterday, we really really need to sign 1/2 more players, but I absolutely hate Arsenal. Barton being called the devil today, if he hadnt of gone down when he was stamped and slapped then he would of been more aggresive. the guy really cant win.

Ingrid has AA and aggro guy just raised 10x.. brb.

just put £50 on Stoke too. No Drogba for Chelsea is a huge huge huge mistake. Midfield of Ramires/Lampard and Mikel is just average and Torres/Kaloud/Malouda are too lightweight for the Stoke defence who will jsut go through them from the off.

Stoke don';t have much up front but they are huge threat from set pieces.

Looks like a leak to me v any 2 players TBH. I could well be wrong but I doubt that you can hit the flop often enough v these guys to make this a profitable play pre.

the other guy was very likely to get out of the way, he was a terribad nit and he was terribly tight post flop anyway. also bvb this guy was raising to 6x etc. i could 4bet to isolate vs him, but he very likely to just stick it in my eye lol

I've now been given a free part of a forum where I can have people restrcited and will be purely for PHA, so abit like the red pro baord at pokerroad a while ago, got like 15-20 people who will contribute reguarly and perhaps this will go up and up to maybe 50-100 could be super sick.

I def got the motivation and desire to host/own/run a PHA board somewhere and hopefully people will follow me there and get som high quality discussions going.

Started playing 6max this week. Ran absolutely horrendously in first 3 sessions and was like 13bi's under ev, prtty big meh. Hzave been super positive in every session and really played v.good. TRRoday I went in with great hope/optimism and snap lost 6 bi;s with ridic hands, 910v77 on 786 for 200 bigs etc. Had one more bi before a stop loss and was about to quit, eventually found a hero with K high and then went on a heater and ended up 5 bi's ( 12bi swing)which is a pretty nice upswing :)

Had good coaching session with Alex Martin last nihgt, tweaked a couple things, but think general opinion was I'm playing good.

Going to keep gogogogogogogogoging.

Weird dream last night.

Jungleman came back to Gibraltar to announce his love for Ingrid (my gf) and wanted to take her round the world whilst he played poker. She somehow fell for it and then 2 of my friends kidnapped him after a sick chase through lanes and stuff and gave him some brutal attention whilst I embarked on a "fight for my gf" where we went to her Mums house in New York. Somehow after lots of weird stuff I end up playing in a cup final for a HUngarian team and she was watching. Half way through the match I'm through on goal and I see that she inst in her seat anymore I leave the ball and it feels kinda likea movie, lots of close ups of Yanks shouting at me and then I see a limo driving away and Haseebs face comes out the window looking back. Lots of stuff happened which I can;'t really remember, but after chases and boat chases (like out of Taken) they got away.

2)   A high boards
With our bluffing range I think we should Check back and give up bc he has 53% of the time an A in his calling range.
With AK,AQ value bet.


why wouldn't you cbet bluffs here? surely you can cbet 1/3 pot and its hard for him to continue without a hand. so as long as he's folding to your cbet at least 25% of the time its instantly a profitable play?  I guess if you're cbetting bigger it might not be profitable to bluff but assuming you're playing 100bb deep it should still be possible to get stacks in by the river cbetting small in 4bet pots when you have a value hand. Is it better to bet big on flop because ppl will call off more with dominated aces when you bet big flop and get it in on turn?


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: EvilPie on August 23, 2011, 04:45:50 PM
Looks good in theory.

Then again most theories do look good.

Not sure about the folding 30% of the time.

Personally I don't have a 4 bet fold range from the blinds with a 100bb stack so this wouldn't work against me.

This strat worked very well playing rush poker when that was about so it's nothing new. Outragous76 used it a helluva lot to pretty good effect from what I gather.

I believe it was a very high variance move though.

my button rereraise is the 4th bet

yeah agree, also this will usually set up good sizing for a perceived turn shove, so they know that when i bet flop im setting up river shove, jsut like "when i call turn i have to call river"

im so shit at explaiining myslef lol.

my question is:

Is it better to

a) bet 1/3 pot on flop so you can bluff these boards, but lose value when opponent only calls one street or folds to 3rd barrel

b) bet 3/4 pot on flop meaning you cant bluff these boards, but gain value when opponent calls flop and are more likely to call off stacks on turn


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on August 23, 2011, 05:40:53 PM
i thnk bet 1/3 pot so we can

1) shove turn for value when they are probably nto foldign after calling turn
2) cheaper price on bluff

maybe like 2/5ths would be best cbet size.

Jesus, moving house is such an effort.

I moved to Gib with 2 suitcases, I moved to this new house with like 16.

We walked to Spain at 6pm in blistering heat, it was literally 40 degrees as we walked across the border.

House is really, really nice. So glad we've moved. Few tinkerings here and there and should be fully settled in on Monday.

Our friends helped us move and without them we would have been absolutely snookered, thye brought their dog too, who is going to have puppies with Basil next month.

Should be interesting.

Closed the window after Matt's splendid advice and no reoccurence as of yet. Left the dog in the bedroom on the way out so hopefully she will scare them off.

Just been walkign Basil and bumped into a nice young Spanish kid with the most adorable puppy, ofc I'm cuddling it (it insta takes to both me and Ingrid) and then we get talking with the guy, his Mum is "Pedro's" best friends dog. Pedro is going to UNi in 9 months so cant commit to the dog and is really scared to take it to a shelter as he doesnt want it to go to a bad home as he's "fell in love with the puppy".

We look at eachother and after it took well to Basil we said we would take it. We have a huge house and lots of terrace space for it to run about and really grow up in a loving family.

She is going to come round on Friday to see how she takes to the house and how she gets along with Basil initially. If there is any problems at all we will cancel it.

ANybody see any problems with this?

Basil is best behaved dog ever, super super intelligent and has lots and lots of love for me and INgrid. She was also found on the street as a puppy. She has never lived with dogs, but is very friendly with them when she is on the street, would never bark at a dog and always trys to play,  but barks alot in doors at dogs outside.

The puppy is 3 months and will grow to a similar size as basil.

Cockroaches are never in singles, if you have one, you probably have hundreds of them.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cockroach

Note particularly.....

A female German cockroach carries an egg capsule containing around 40 eggs. She drops the capsule prior to hatching, though live births do occur in rare instances. Development from eggs to adults takes 3 to 4 months. Cockroaches live up to a year. The female may produce up to eight egg cases in a lifetime; in favorable conditions, she can produce 300 to 400 offspring. Other species of cockroach, however, can produce an extremely high number of eggs in a lifetime; in some cases a female needs to be impregnated only once to be able to lay eggs for the rest of her life.

To be fair, you would not see him again. They hide in warm dark nooks & crannies - typically in human beings ears, for example. Best to stick some cotton wool in your ears when you sleep. Hopefully it is a "he", as the females lay their eggs in peoples ears.

Just been walkign Basil and bumped into a nice young Spanish kid with the most adorable puppy, ofc I'm cuddling it (it insta takes to both me and Ingrid) and then we get talking with the guy, his Mum is "Pedro's" best friends dog. Pedro is going to UNi in 9 months so cant commit to the dog and is really scared to take it to a shelter as he doesnt want it to go to a bad home as he's "fell in love with the puppy".

We look at eachother and after it took well to Basil we said we would take it. We have a huge house and lots of terrace space for it to run about and really grow up in a loving family.

She is going to come round on Friday to see how she takes to the house and how she gets along with Basil initially. If there is any problems at all we will cancel it.

ANybody see any problems with this?

Basil is best behaved dog ever, super super intelligent and has lots and lots of love for me and INgrid. She was also found on the street as a puppy. She has never lived with dogs, but is very friendly with them when she is on the street, would never bark at a dog and always trys to play,  but barks alot in doors at dogs outside.

The puppy is 3 months and will grow to a similar size as basil.

bump.

Everytime I read this blog I remember how much I loved living in Southern Spain.  Seville is a wonderful city.  Have you ever been to Castellar de la Frontera it is up in the hills behind San Roque.  Well worth a trip...very weird vibe about the place as the original Andalucian residents were moved down the road to Nuevo Castellar and a bunch of German hippies moved in in their place.

Hi Pleeeney, hope your well - Have you been playing any WCOOPS, and are you playing to play anymore?

I'm very jealous of you living out there, sounds great :-) - I have a vision in a year's time, I'll be travelling round europe in a camper van, city to city, think it can only make u a better person in the long run.

Enjoy

Hey Dreenie,

My internet is buggered until Monday so grinding is out of the question until next week. I'll be playing all the GSOP hopefully and the mini GSOP too aswell as playing 6max cash to get a regular amountof dough coming in aswell. Have read, researched, learned and developed via books/podcasts/articles/videos over the last 3 weeks or so and sometimes its nice to have a little break.

My house is always open for blondes, so feel free to visit anytime you like. Got a grinding room you can stay in and win lots of $ too if you like.

Run good!

I see it and it runs and hides, so I'm like ok wte. My dad moves something and it comes out and runs into the door. We spray something and it intices it out, I see its eyes looking at me and it knows that I'm the one who is going to end its miserable, dirty, infected life. It flys up as I smash it and I smash it in mid air like something out of a Jackie Chan film and announce to the world. "I'm a fucking hero".

Nice story, would have been better if you'd have shouted  "best in the business" instead of "i'm a fucking hero". There's a chinese supermarket down by the Ocean Village Marina that sell very effective roach traps for next to nothing, go and get a few of those I reckon.

No we haven't met, I've spent the last couple of years sailing around/across the atlantic. I called in to Gib last September for a couple of weeks, we picked up some cockroaches in Barbate or Tarifa, they are a nightmare on a yacht.

I've enjoyed reading the diary, good to see you having so much success at the moment both in poker and much more importantly in real life as well.

Posted this in Ray's blog as he was uncertain where to play/how to choose the right room and had been stuck on stars for the last 100k hands playing 100nl 6max.

Lets look at it more closely.

Deciding where to play!

Ok, some people get this huuuuugely wrong, they just hear a percentage and go running after the highest one to find. There are several things to tak into consideration when looking to find a new room.


Rakeback:

The money you will receive at the end of the month as a % of your rake coming back into your account

Stars: 3/10
iPoker: 7/10
Microgaming: 5/10
Ongame: 7/10
Entraction: 7/10

The standard of opposition:

If I can have a 10bb/100 winrate and get 30% rakeback give me this all day over 50% rakeback and 2bb/100 winrate.

Stars: 3/10
iPoker: 4/10
Microgaming: 9/10
Ongame: 9/10
Entraction: 9/10

Software:

The ability to be able to run numerous tables at once, software that has good time banks, software that enables you to easily see whats going on.

Stars: 8/10
iPoker: 3/10
Microgaming: 7/10
Ongame: 6/10
Entraction: 7/10

Liquidity pool + Software

It's fantastic if you can get 10000 tables on your screen, but if you're sitting by yourself it's abit pointless.

Stas: 8/10
iPoker: 5/10
Microgaming: 7/10
Ongame: 6/10
Entraction: 5/10



Overall Scores:


Stas: 24/40
iPoker: 19/40
Microgaming: 28/40
Ongame: 28/40
Entraction: 28/40

As you can see Stars/iPoker come out the "worst" although granted this is my opinion and its only 4 things that I have considered.

I'm now going to do this again, but becuase for ME the most important thing is soft players, I am going to increase the scores by 50%. I don't care so much about software as I only 6 table so it should be fine everywhere, so I'm going to - 50% the the software and liquidity sections.


Rakeback:

The money you will receive at the end of the month as a % of your rake coming back into your account

Stars: 3/10
iPoker: 7/10
Microgaming: 5/10
Ongame: 7/10
Entraction: 7/10

The standard of opposition: (+50%)

If I can have a 10bb/100 winrate and get 30% rakeback give me this all day over 50% rakeback and 2bb/100 winrate.

Stars: 4.5/10
iPoker: 6/10
Microgaming: 13.5/10
Ongame: 13.5/10
Entraction: 13.5/10

Software:  (-50%)

The ability to be able to run numerous tables at once, software that has good time banks, software that enables you to easily see whats going on.

Stars: 4/10
iPoker:  1.5/10
Microgaming: 3.5/10
Ongame: 3/10
Entraction:  3.5/10

Liquidity pool + Software

It's fantastic if you can get 10000 tables on your screen, but if you're sitting by yourself it's abit pointless.

Stas: 4/10
iPoker: 2.5/10
Microgaming: 3.5/10
Ongame: 3/10
Entraction:  2.5/10



Overall Scores:


Stas: 15.5
iPoker: 17
Microgaming: 25.5
Ongame: 26.5
Entraction:  26.5


Other considerations:

Who is my affiliate? This is incredibly important. Sure go get a 75% deal, but if you're not going to get paid at the end of the month why bother?

Case #1: PotRaiser.com

This case clearly shows that illegal deals are not safe, even if they are offered from the poker room directly.
Please point out how important it is to go for reputable and trustworthy operators which can be found on PokerStrategy.com.
Players have lost a significant amount of money and it is doubtful if they ever see it back – just because a shady company promised them high rakeback deals.

Cliffnotes:

•   Potraiser.com used to be an Entraction skin, that offered 60%+ flat rakeback through under the table deals to every player even though flat rakeback on Entraction  is capped at 30%
•   After Entraction found out about this offer and terminated the contract with Potraiser.com, players were unable to withdraw money from the site. (September 2010)
(http://forum.internal.idn5.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=87255.0;attach=105338;image)
•   Potraiser.com announced on their website that players will be able to withdraw money as soon as they have finished their move to another network.
(http://forum.internal.idn5.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=87255.0;attach=105340;image)
•   This never happened and players are still waiting to be paid (September 2011)

More information can be found on 2+2 forum: Link (http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/29/news-views-gossip/potraiser-terminated-agreement-entraction-true-story-887654/)

Case #2: Affiliate disappears and owes players rakeback[/size]

Players should go with trustworthy affiliates, because everyone can promise high rakeback deals, but many of them fail to pay once they get caught (=their commission frozen).
Networks have started to monitor the affiliates´ activities and won´t hesitate to close those affiliates that don´t stick to the rules.
Even though players most likely won´t lose their bankroll, it is still bad to receive 0% rakeback if they could have gotten something from a legal deal.

This example is just one out of many similar cases that we know about.

•   Pokercapital.org was founded in January 2011 and claimed to be the “Facebook of poker”
•   They offered illegal deals on their forum/website and claimed to have around 750 players registered
•   They got caught giving illegal rakeback and went offline, of course they didn´t pay their players
•   Beginning of May 2011 they even try to sell their business for €200


When do the games run? If you can only play at 9am-4pm maybe stars is your only option if you are a 8 table grinder. Lots of the European games run in the evening and are soft because they are funded by Scananavian gamblers that come over from the sports book.

To summarise, its really important to choose the right room. If you think rakeback is super super important then make it 75% more in the charts I did, if you want to be a winning player and play against bad players who don't 3bet you and put you into tough decisions then change that accordignly too.

How on earth does Stars get 8/10 for liquidity when they have more players than all the other networks listed added together?

lol guys, this wasn't my perfect results, I just did it quickly to show that you should consider more than one thing about a poker room.

You should tink about 5 things that are important to you about a poker room, then investigate it yourself instead of BITB getting grief and rework the scorings for importance and find the perfect room. Going somewhere just for rakeback just doesnt make sense as most others will be doing the exact same thing meaning the games will be very hard to beat at a considerable bb/100. Moving over to microgaming and winning at 13bb/100 is absolutely no competition at all.

Went for a midnight stroll/run on the beach with the dogs, had a great time although the little one didn't like her shower when she got home.

Big changes going on in company I'm working for, lots of people will be made redundant and when you look left/right you know one of you will be gone, pretty scary and working enviroment taking a little hit. Company is first class though and sort it v.swiftly. We currently have 150 people working in Gibraltar, alotttt of IT geeks in Germany :D and over 1000 freelances, so pretty huge company. Some really really nice people in company who I'd be really sad to see leave and obviously I hope mine/girlfriends jobs are fine too, although if anything did happen I'm confident we'd work something out.

Parents been gone a week now and miss them alot, although Ingi's friend is here for a week and seems to be having a whale of a time. He can happily go away for 24 hours by himself getting busses/trains and enjoying life by himself, I'm the absolute opposite, if I want to go away part of the enjoyment if that I know the person I'm with is having a good time and happy to be with me.

If I'm watching the best film I've ever watched and my girlfrined/firend/family aren't paying attention I get so angry. I often get told off for saying watch this watch this as I show youtube video after youtube video. I even watch videos and then pretend to girlfriend I;ve never seen them before (even though I watched 5 minutes earlier) just because I know she will enjoy it and I want her to be happy watching it.

Ok if this is spammy I don't mean it to be put the support on Encore / Genting is absolutely incredible. Willing to bet it's as good if not better than stars if there's some way of determining.

Nah this is wrong imo, if you get a good skin on one of the big European netowrks sometimes you have the head of poker on skype and you can ping him and instantly get your problem solved. I'm not advocating going for shady skins there are lots and lots of very reputable skins, I mention this at the bottom of my post with "other considerations".


Title: Re: The Best In The Business

Also lol at security of stars. From what I heard recently they are anything but secure its not totally out of the question they will be fined 300 billion and forced to close by the DOJ. After bf I think its wrong to ever assume that PS/FT will ever be more secure than any other sites.

The skins I would suggest people got o are Ladbrokes, William Hill etc that are all big big companies with huge reputations that they would never sacrifice for poker as the only reason they have them is so their sports betters don't go else where.

Went out to our favourite restaurant, we had about 15 different dishes over 90 mins or so, brough back a £25 steak for the dog and was finished in under 30 seconds.

10 minutes later....

"Babe, babe, they called me best in the kitchen"

"huh?"

"they called me best in the kitchen i'm gonna tell them to stick a fork in me" (opens up the epic blonde smileys)

From Monday will be playing almost exclusively on entraction, sitting mainly in the 600/400nl games when they run and when they don't grinding the 200nl games. Hopefully in a few month will have taken shots at 2knl when it runs.

Will continue playing the anon games on Ladbrokes as they owe me alottttttttttt of slanksy bucks and its basically printing money.

I've been winning lots recently, and whenev a new player comes to he table have always posted for them, especially if they are buying in for less than 50bigs, was a busto degen last night who was like grinding £10 stacks for an hour and eventually going busto, I was paying his blinds for him every round and even straddled for him a couple of times (I was on his direct right) I complete the straddle and he shoves! cheeky bastard, I spite snap him of with K3 and obv get there against AK. He takes it in good spirit and I give him £4.25 which lasted him another hour or so (with me posting his blinds again! KARMAAAAAAA.

If somebody was going to go to vegas and grind cash games and was seeking people to buy a part of the bankrool to play 200/500nl games, whats the likelyhood that people would buy a %? We are assuming guy is well known, trusted, respected, good player etc.

Talking about ti with a few people and people all think different things.

What would be your line?

I'd buy pieces in cash of Sunny, Mitch, Keys, Tom Rutter, Vinny, Hopkin, Matt, Marky, Karl, Jeff and only a very select few others.

Normally when people say 'i trust x 100%' if that figure is actually closer even to 99% then I wouldn't buy in them, almost regardless of the game.

If said player fits into that category and you think they are really good (if they haven't played much/any live I would snap say no even though they'd prob crush said lineups online) then I'd buy a piece.

I was pretty amazed at the level of trust Keith and keys showed in me when I played live cash for them. Would've been the easiest grim in the world. There's very few ppl I'd trust to do it myself. Even if they were 100% trustworthy I'd feel so uneasy about the whole thing I thunk it'd affect our friendship massively. Maybe that's just a personality thing, I know you're very trusting pleno.

Post by: Simon Galloway on October 11, 2011, 07:52:39 PM
Make an allowance also for people that haven't been to Vegas very much (or at all)

If a very good player told me they were going to vegas for the first time, I wouldn't go anywhere near it, trust or not.  People need to know how to handle Vegas properly before they are even remotely a +EV spot imo.

Agree totally.  It is just too easy to, if not grim totally, then skim a bit off the top and i would imagine the chances of being caught are pretty small.  the only way i would even consider it would be if I was spending a large amount of time at a particular cardroom and they played there exclusively and i thought I would be able to get an idea from other players exactly how they were doing and even then I would have to feel like I could trust them massively.


Title: Re: The Best In The Business

I saw a "friend" who I was staying with in a certain place playing cash game for 2 guys I know, he was taking £'s off for taxi's, food and other things, really tiltedme at the time. I would have to be 10000% to do it for somebody else, but know that I would be trustworthy.

The friend above was a guy I had only met irl for the first time, so again I think knowing the guy personally is important too. Ofc we have the blatchgate probs aswell.

Second question, if you did something like this over an extended period, say you were looking for 50k. How much would be reasonable to charge for 1%?

Our team is really good now and first time I've been so optimistic since "that" era.

We are playing attacking football and even our back 4 is v.attacking.

Santon - Naturally an attacking full back, loves to get forward
R.Taylor - One of our top scorers/assists. Great winning goals including progression in league cup and league match vs scum
St Taylor - Scores lots of headers
Collocini - Footballing centre back

read somewhere that you employ moderators. can you elaborate and what do you do ensure that they moderate with fairness?

I don't personally employ the moderators. My girlfriend is in charge of a team of them though so I am there or there abouts when she is ocnsidering their applications, talking to them etc and I'm also one of the mods so I know the duty and what is expected of them/us etc.

I planned to make a big deposit on PKR last week and play their 600nl games and taking shots at their 1knl games. Unfortunately I spent 3 hours trying to get a deposit of over 800$ allowed. This wasn't granted and I meh'd it off after gg'n the 800 :P

I know alot of the regs on the site and they have an incorrect image of me that I thought would work really well for me.

I was staked by two of them for HUNL earlier in the year before I went on an online heater and lost around 60bi's when running insannnnely bad, was actually still up or close in ev which is pretty sick as morale is low when grinding with no clear vision of getting out of MU. Anyway I won't go into things too much, but they think I take one specific line alllllll the time and after playing vs one of their horses last week they thought I was going for this line in a spot I'd just never do it. So really want to play vs them as much as possible.

I love challenges in poker, I'm constantly trying to play good players heads up and really learn/improve. I had that reallllly good match vs TLN last month where I won 11bi's and completely outplayed him, it made me feel so good about my game. I've actually had a reallllly good year poker wise even though I havn't played as much. I've won 3 decent sized comps, WCOOP final table for 5 figures and lots of live success both in Vegas and Gibraltar. It's hard to say how many bi's I've won live as I've lost track but it's definitely alot and havn't had more than 350bb downswing.

We have three French interns who are predominantly online players, one of them, Gautier played with me live and spoke about how my table presence and table captaincy was different from anything he'd seen.

Tournament wise, I havn't played much since WCOOP, think I did one huuuuge sesison where I came 2nd in a 15k gaurantee comp. I was approached to play every Sunday without makeup for 15% of myself, but decided to turn that down as would rather punt off my own roll when playing comps and taking some shots.

I have big plans for next year but can't really speak about them for obvious reasons. I absolutely loved Vegas this year and hppefully my stay next year will be extended a litte :)

Anyway, will play James Mackenzie for 10k hands starting next week, I'm going to get a deeeeeecent amount of side action and hopefully win alot. I know his camp want to bet alot on him, but I'm very confident I'm a favourite, if anyone wants to bet against them then let me know and I'll sort it out. Promise I got my A game and I'm in the zone atm. Prob can get upto 10k worth of action and although I don't want to go into any details pre match I'm extrmeely confident (obv wouldnt play if didnt think I'd win :P) and can talk vs pm.

Started staking a guy today for 100nl, he's going to be sick sick good. You know when you just get a feeling about someone? He's a grinding machine and I put him on a palce with like 20% rb maximum, want him to be a huuuuge crusher and think he can beat 400nl before long. Really good fundamentals such as barreling in good spots and 3b/4b/5b with dynamics and just understands game flow really well. He had a good start and will keep posting about him too.

Stable is getting really nice now, its small which si good as dont want any future finance problems with not being able to feed hungry horses but still room for 1 or 2 more.

No the backer for the HU games finished whilst I was in MU, it was just after black Friday, some of the makeup is still in there.

Things were good because they realised I was running terrible, we went to Brighton together and I ran so bad both live and online, think they kinda realised. I actually ironically met him in Brighton the year before too. They are really good players that nobody really knows about and they taught me alottttt in the months I was there. They kinda pushed the turning your hand into a bluff thing on me after they told me a hand they had played vs Trickett. Anyway the first few months I was crushing and running good, they came to visit me and told me I was the most likely out of the whole stable to have a 100k 2012.

Fat forward 13 days, James Mackenzie loses stop loss to a fish. I end up getting realllly deep vs the fish, opened 12x on button with kq, he peeled, flop was k102, we get lots of monies in and he rivers two pair with j10. Following day I lose stop loss (6bi's at 200nl) running 11bi's below ev and the downswong started.

They also bought 30% of me in a big live game I managed to get into which was a huge shot for me persoanlly at the time, I end up getting 2 pair vs overpair in for thousands and thousands of dimes and he turns a set. Really was a weird 3 months of run bad. The week after I left them I won a $55 comp for 4k I think,

Since then its mainly been a upswing although on Ladbrokes I ran 7k below EV in last 2 months.

It was for a new guy, but all PKR action I wanted for myself. This deal ended around 3+ months ago.

I did play NL1K on own dime during that period though which was fine. And played upto NL4K (2k w/straddles) live.

12x on the button was an adjustment vs fish :)

you think heads up is a very good way to learn about poker very quickly?

also, what would you class your speciallity now, HU 6 max mtt's or a bit of an all rounder?

I'd say that Live 3-7 handed is where Iam at my best, although the sample size may be the smallest, I feel ridicuously comofrtable and really really enjoy it.

Heads up is without doubt the best way to learn poker IMO.  Although I actually lost playing heads up over a 3 month sample, I learned so much from it.

Game flow, adjustments, hand reading are more important in HU than almost anything, if you're weak in any of these areas against a good player you will get torn apart. Anybody who I have coached/sweated will say I am much better at HU than 6max, but I think my 6max game is improving and pretty similar.

Tournaments I have been really funny with. I originally thought I was good/solid and was nitty and +ev, I then ran awful, actually when Greeky backed me for some comps and immediately thought I was terrible. I realised after it was just variance and then I started to put my cash game into tournaments and it helped alot.

I got private coaching from anon friend and reallllllly helped my game and believe I have potential to be a really good MTT player. I had some nice runs in some live tournaments this year and online made a good 5 figure amount.

My weakness, is that I play all of them and unfortunately means I am not BITB in any of them.

I want to go back to HU or 2-4 handed games and this 10k challenge vs James should help me.

Solid areticle by Kimber

http://www.thepokerfarm.com/opinion-pages/selling-action/

My opinion:

Nice write up. Although I disagree slightly. Although I may not be interested in buying shares from Paul Zimbler, it IMO doesn't mean I don't have a right to comment in a forum thread etc. Take Blonde for example, I am a regular buyer there and will usually buy a piece in 95% of people selling. If Zimbler comes alonmg charging 1.62 then people who would usually sell at cost will start charging 1.1 and players who usually charge 1.2 will think they can get away with 1.5. Basically when somebody sells at a price that is unjustified, everybodies value instantly goes up and they can now sell out at a higher mark up as most people don't understand mark ups and just buy a % if they think somebody is a good player or if they can't make the comp and are looking for a sweat. This means IT IS, as a regular backer of a forum, in my interest to keep market prices down.


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: AndrewT on October 31, 2011, 03:14:18 PM
Yeah, Kimbo is wrong here.

If you post a staking request in a public place where others can comment then they can comment. If you don't want your LOLstake publicly ripped to shreds then don't make it public - email your marks potential stakees directly.

my opinion has yo-yo'd on this loads and I'm not 100% sure what I think.

Whilst me and you know there's no way Zimbler isn't 1.6 in that tournament (he probably isnt 1.0), how do you justify that he isn't? If people wanna buy, let them buy. It's not like the person is hiding any information right?

By the same token should you also state when you think people are underselling?

Which is exactly what Chaz did. Which I think is totally fine.

Example 2. Keys playing main event charging 2.0, putting a thread up = wrong. Charging 2.0 to people who want to buy a piece and have asked him, totally fine imo.

Disagree, its not about $ spent, its about amount of transactions. I probably bought in more people than anyone this year and really would hate it if lots of successful 1.5's were sold. Even 1.3's can really cost alot of money in the long run.


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: Dubai on October 31, 2011, 03:23:44 PM
What? Obviously its about the amount spent. Who cares if someone who buys 0.25% of 100 people disappears? Id worry if the person who buys 30% of 20 people disappears tho.

Its in every backers interests to keep prices low, and every sellers interests to keep prices high

No he cant. He has the same posting rights as any other member really.

If he were to post a thread entitled 'Fuck the Greeks' with a bunch of racist spiel he'd be banned like anyone else. He'd still own the site but he'd be banned.

Obv the mods are gonna show more leniency towards Flushy than a regular poster as he's the owner, but saying he can post whatever he likes is untrue.

Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: Dubai on October 31, 2011, 03:40:07 PM
Theres 2 types of flaming- people that flame someone selling at high markup, all put "lol 1.3 what a joke" etc- they have no interest in buying therefore its just wrong. The second type is the Flushy example- he might say its high but if the player moved the price down he would be the first to buy the lot. Therefore its just negotiations, so its fine. The only argument is how the whole thing should be conducted, obviously in a perfect world it would be in private and still allow the player to try and sell at the higher rate

Its not really interesting and has been argued to death on 2+2 anyway


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on October 31, 2011, 03:46:18 PM
Out of interest Dubai, how do you decide on your mark ups in tournaments? I know you use specific markups, but can't really remember the range of them. iirc its something like 1.32, or 1.44 etc. Do you do a general amrkup then round it up/down so that people pay full numbers like $1k for 10% instead of 996 etc.


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: pleno1 on October 31, 2011, 03:46:42 PM

Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: Dubai on October 31, 2011, 03:50:32 PM
Same as saying a team is the wrong price in a bet. Just an opinion

I just try and pick the highest number i think that will sell. Which is what all sellers do i assume. I mean why sell 1.15 when u can at 1.2 etc

Whether or not im value is just an opinion anyway


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: AndrewT on October 31, 2011, 03:50:59 PM
And how do you decide on the 1.3, 1.2 etc.

Dubai judges himself against the market. He'll see that Paul Zimbler is selling at 1.6 and think 'Paul has twice as much of an edge at MTTs as me so I will sell at 1.3'


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: Dubai on October 31, 2011, 03:53:33 PM
Id love to say its some scientific formula but its just really basic business, which is to get as much as u can for the product you are selling.

I think my expected roi is always way higher than i sell anyway, which imo makes it a good buy for backers. But i know the limitations for what people generally pay so try to reach the upper end of them. Making it good business for both


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: GreekStein on October 31, 2011, 04:00:23 PM

Isn't it better to discuss with the seller in private?


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: Dubai on October 31, 2011, 04:02:53 PM
Some people are better judges than others, therefore their opinion is going to be more accurate than others. Its obviously better to discuss in private but as long as its productive theres nothing wrong with it on threads.

I mean if someone replies, think 1.2 is too high. If you lower it to 1.1 il take the lot, thats fine imo. People can then decide to take the 1.2 or not knowing the player is assured to sell out at 1.1

Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: Moskvich on October 31, 2011, 04:23:22 PM
I think the article's argument is basically wrong and its justification is pretty half-arsed. Yes, we say that the buyer should beware, but we don't say that the buyer should be ignorant.

In general, an efficient market is a good thing. Efficiency is pretty hard to achieve though in the market for stakes in poker players, since it's so hard to even estimate anyone's true ROI, and since liquidity is so low. Opinions of well-informed people are therefore relatively even more valuable than in any other financial or commodity market, where such opinions are constantly sought.

Looking at the author's example - no, we shouldn't worry about someone buying a brand of crisps rather than supermarket's own, because the prices of those commodities have been set in a highly liquid market that has effectively already taken into account thousands of opinions and judgments to arrive at a "correct" price.

And in any case, if we did disagree with someone's choice of crisps - would the author actually argue that there's some reason we shouldn't express that opinion? I very much doubt it.

I also don't much like the implication that because the seller has worked hard to build up his name on TV etc, he should be rewarded for that effort by being able to sell at a higher price. This is a bit like suggesting that because a con man is clever and puts a lot of effort into his scams then he deserves what he gains.

I don't think the article sets out to say this, but it is the implication. And in any case, the intention - to say that he has a 'brand' that others don't have and that is worth something - is also flawed. There can be some intrinsic value in a brand, in that, for example, people will actually enjoy the branded crisps more than the unbranded ones. The staking thing is different though - you don't get to consume or use or own anything. It's just an investment.

So actually a good comparison would be with an investment fund. If investment fund A has good recent results and charges fees of 1% and fund B has poor results and charges 50%, is the author really saying that people who know about investment funds shouldn't point this out on internet forums, because fund B has advertised a lot on TV? I don't think so.

As someone who was bashed recently re pricing up the EPT I was a bit perturbed by people who were never going to invest bashing the price.

When genuine investors were questioning the price I had no real qualms. What's annoying is the whole discussion distracts from the point of the thread. IMO if you don't wanna buy don't comment. Saying it's in a public forum etc etc is stupid. It's specifically there for staking. Not like I'm putting it on a footy forum or something

Post by: DaveShoelace on November 01, 2011, 10:47:24 AM
Great discussion.

Personal opinion is that today consumers live in the most transparent times ever. We rate products on things like ebay, trip advisor, amazon etc, if we have a grievance with a product we can go to consumer forums, twitter, facebook etc and actually have a real influence, and pricing gets scrutinized more than ever before.

As a horse, I think you should completely expect to be privvy to the same level of scrutiny, especially in poker and even more so on poker forums, where the consumers are usually very savvy.

People with no intention of backing probably should not wade in and derail the threads, however is this not exactly what we are trying to encourage when a potential grimmer is in our ranks? Obviously there is a big difference between Blatch and someone overestimating their edge in a tournament, but if we are supposed to be protecting backers from grimmers, is it that bad to look out for their best interests with the legit horses?

Its an open forum, if you post something people have a reply button. If it irks you what they reply then tough shit if that reply falls in the boundaries of that particular forums rules.

Crying about it, in a published article is pathetic.




How is he crying about it?

I'll admit i skim read it but he appeared to be saying that if you don't want some of the stake, don't post on the thread. Should i re-read it? If thats what he is saying then he's having a moan, a whinge, a cry etc about the entire way a forum set up works.

Doesn't come across that way. He's expressing a point of view just as you are now. Don't see why his is coming across as crying. Just cos it's a public forum, doesn't mean you can say what the fuck you want.

Great discussion.

Personal opinion is that today consumers live in the most transparent times ever. We rate products on things like ebay, trip advisor, amazon etc, if we have a grievance with a product we can go to consumer forums, twitter, facebook etc and actually have a real influence, and pricing gets scrutinized more than ever before.

It's a difficult one.

Some people are just trolling so their comments are out of line. For example Trigg's comment on George's staking thread. I don't recall Trigg buying a piece of anyone (and I'm not trying to attack Rick here - he's a good friend who may have felt he was doing nothing wrong)  so as someone who isn't a buyer I don't think he should have said anything.

If people like me or Pads, who punt on everyone, or Flushy who's the biggest buyer within the blonde market make a comment, then as long as it is constructive I think that's fine. Saying 'you're charging too much' in my opinion is out of line. Saying 'I think you're charging too much because this tournament is a tough field of people who have impressive records' is absolutely fine.

I think Flushy saying on twitter 'Clueless man makes clueless comments' is a bit unfair unless he's made them to Jeff directly.

The only way you sort out the trolling, imo, is if you police it by only allowing people who have bought pieces/made a declaration they are looking to buy pieces access to the forum. Logistically this would be a nightmare.

Ultimatley, anyone who is looking to get staked should be confident and able to justify how they have estimated their edge. If you cannot answer a trolls questions, you probably haven't put enough thought into this or they probably have a point. If anything a well answered reply to a troll is going to put you in a stronger position with backers, and I think when most of us see the usual suspects of shrewd backers still asking for a % it is clear that its a good stake.

The chances are also that if you address everything comprehensivley enough in your OP, you avoid this in the first place.

Its interesting, I think I've had some decent experiance with stakes/backing etc these days, surely any1 can ask for whatever price they want? I agree with dubai with that but its also at the discretion of the buyer at what price he/she buys at... If I don't think the price is a positive investment I won't buy, I think offering an opinion on the price is also not fair because peoples opinions are swayed easily and so if you want to discuss prices I should be done via PM.

For example, when I saw Zimbler post at 1.6 for London I laughed and joked but fair play to him cause some mug may buy at that price, on the other hand Pab selling at 1.0 is absurd in the other direction because he probably is +ev at 1.6 (unless he 6b folds the best hand to Benny again)

These are all my opinions tho and every1 has a different one....

Staking threads are a great idea, flaming publicly isn't imo.

I need to read the article again cos I skimmed before and don't remember seeing Jeff insult Flushy in the piece.

With regards to you saying about someone selling at a bad price - it's a bad price in Toby's opinion. It's a bad price in my opinion. It's a bad price in most people's opinions.

not at all, but in this case he's spot on. Not because flushy owns the site, more about the fact that he is the biggest staker on the site and if he wants to say he thinks something is over priced that seems pretty fair to me.

I did say almost any player, there are of course exceptions.

Flushy is subject to the same forum guidelines as everyone else, and he agrees with this last time we discussed it....


to the issue at hand, as long as comments on a particular stake are not flaming then I don't see any problem with someone who hasn't bought a piece/won't buy a piece having a say

It's part of the mechanism of asking for staking to be given feedback by your peers and to be scrutinised.

At the end of the day its a free market. Supply meets demand at a price, job done. If not it isn't. That price though is open to debate on here, if debated in the right way

The idea that people shouldn´t comment on whether someone is +ev or not because it´s impossible to prove one way or the other is very flawed. It´s what poker players/sports bettors do all the time. We use all the available information to make an informed decision/investment, actual proof is almost never available and we wouldn´t want it to be, if it was then our judgement wouldn´t be of any value. Provided an individual´s decision/opinion is well informed then absolutely anybody should be able to post their thoughts imo.

Post by: The Squid on November 01, 2011, 01:22:21 PM
Theoretically selling action should operate entirely on free-market principles. I sell my action for a GUKPT at a certain mark-up, if I sell out quickly and hassle free the next time I sell for a similar event I charge more. I would continue pushing the price higher until I have trouble selling my action, or until it doesn't sell at all.

In reality this is not how it functions for myself or the majority of poker players who sell action on a regular basis. I'm savvy enough to know that when other players by my action it's not just because of my ruthlessly agressive style and incredible hand-reading skills. It is often as much to do with fellow poker-players and enthusiasts wanting to play a small role in supporting my career. Sure players buy each others action for a bit of a sweat and as an extra revenue stream. More importantly though, it serves to strengthen bonds of friendship and solidarity between people working in a seemingly individualistic industry. I have no doubt that when I sell for an EPT my friends who buy up my action do so as much as means of encouragement and of expressing their faith in me as for its likely financial return. More established and secure pros and recreational players buying the action in upcoming players under-rolled for a big event is just one of the ways that we support other members of our community.

If I sell my action in an event quickly it's because I'm lucky to have good friends who want to see me do well. I wouldn't mug them off by snap raising the price because they oversubscribed the last time I sold action. I try and sell at roughly the going rate for a player who has my experience and my results. The reason it causes consternation amongst the community when someone does sell at sooo much above the going rate is because the network of buyers and sellers do feel they're being subjected to the most unfettered free-marketeering and the communities trust is being violated.

This post could be loosely summarised as a plea for those selling to exercise a measure of self-control and not to be blindly market orientated in their approach to selling. As in so many things in poker Pab offers a great example for us all where despite his incredible success in the game he approached selling shares in himself with incredible humility and a marvellous respect for his investors money. However, my post wouldn't be complete with out a word about those investing. Selling and buying shares in an event is, of course, pretty standard these days. Nonetheless, to come out and ask for backing on a public forum isn't an easy thing and exposes a player to a certain vulnerability. Other players who might offer future investment opportunities study the tone and content of replies by potential stakers and are certain to be put off by excessively harsh or blunt responses. No-one likes to admit they don't have the money just to buy themselves in to an EPT or GUKPT even though we know this is the situation of the majority of players. It is not always worth publicly flaming someone for selling at a percentage point higher than you think they should. The backing and staking market will operate most successfully if tact, honesty and generosity are placed at the heart of our working practice.

Theoretically selling action should operate entirely on free-market principles. I sell my action for a GUKPT at a certain mark-up, if I sell out quickly and hassle free the next time I sell for a similar event I charge more. I would continue pushing the price higher until I have trouble selling my action, or until it doesn't sell at all.

In reality this is not how it functions for myself or the majority of poker players who sell action on a regular basis. I'm savvy enough to know that when other players by my action it's not just because of my ruthlessly agressive style and incredible hand-reading skills. It is often as much to do with fellow poker-players and enthusiasts wanting to play a small role in supporting my career. Sure players buy each others action for a bit of a sweat and as an extra revenue stream. More importantly though, it serves to strengthen bonds of friendship and solidarity between people working in a seemingly individualistic industry. I have no doubt that when I sell for an EPT my friends who buy up my action do so as much as means of encouragement and of expressing their faith in me as for its likely financial return. More established and secure pros and recreational players buying the action in upcoming players under-rolled for a big event is just one of the ways that players support other members of their community.

If I sell my action in an event quickly it's because I'm lucky to have good friends who want to see me do well. I wouldn't mug them off by snap raising the price because they oversubscribed the last time I sold action. I try and sell at roughly the going rate for a player who has my experience and my results. The reason it causes consternation amongst the community when someone does sell at so much above the going rate is because the network of buyers and sellers do feel they're being subjected to the most unfettered free-marketeering and the communities trust is being violated.

Flushy is subject to the same forum guidelines as everyone else, and he agrees with this last time we discussed it....


to the issue at hand, as long as comments on a particular stake are not flaming then I don't see any problem with someone who hasn't bought a piece/won't buy a piece having a say

It's part of the mechanism of asking for staking to be given feedback by your peers and to be scrutinised.

At the end of the day its a free market. Supply meets demand at a price, job done. If not it isn't. That price though is open to debate on here, if debated in the right way

Sir Tight of End has said it and thats that as far as i'm concerned.

yeh, he agreed with exactly with what im saying so that IS that.

Its interesting, I think I've had some decent experiance with stakes/backing etc these days, surely any1 can ask for whatever price they want? I agree with dubai with that but its also at the discretion of the buyer at what price he/she buys at... If I don't think the price is a positive investment I won't buy, I think offering an opinion on the price is also not fair because peoples opinions are swayed easily and so if you want to discuss prices I should be done via PM.

For example, when I saw Zimbler post at 1.6 for London I laughed and joked but fair play to him cause some mug may buy at that price, on the other hand Pab selling at 1.0 is absurd in the other direction because he probably is +ev at 1.6 (unless he 6b folds the best hand to Benny again)

These are all my opinions tho and every1 has a different one....

Staking threads are a great idea, flaming publicly isn't imo.

You're happy to stand by and see someone buy at a bad price, when you know its shit and laugh it of as they're just mugs.  Cameron won't have you in his big society.

Same for the rest of you, public forum, you take the rough with the smooth, within the rules get on with it.

It's a difficult one.

Some people are just trolling so their comments are out of line. For example Trigg's comment on George's staking thread. I don't recall Trigg buying a piece of anyone (and I'm not trying to attack Rick here - he's a good friend who may have felt he was doing nothing wrong)  so as someone who isn't a buyer I don't think he should have said anything.

If people like me or Pads, who punt on everyone, or Flushy who's the biggest buyer within the blonde market make a comment, then as long as it is constructive I think that's fine. Saying 'you're charging too much' in my opinion is out of line. Saying 'I think you're charging too much because this tournament is a tough field of people who have impressive records' is absolutely fine.

I think Flushy saying on twitter 'Clueless man makes clueless comments' is a bit unfair unless he's made them to Jeff directly.

but Flushy is being slagged off in the article with no right to reply, why can't he reply in kind?



To answer your points from back to front..

I need to read the article again cos I skimmed before and don't remember seeing Jeff insult Flushy in the piece.

With regards to you saying about someone selling at a bad price - it's a bad price in Toby's opinion. It's a bad price in my opinion. It's a bad price in most people's opinions. How can you prove it's a bad price that won't make money in the long run? You can't.  What therefore gives you the right to say anything?

Dubai said perfectly why flushy has every right to call him clueless, so no point going over it.

Of course you can't prove it but we all know backing almost any player at 1.6 would be bad business overall and you would go broke doing it as standard.

and because it was written by Dubai, you take that as gospel?

Ask Tikay, Tighty or any of the other mods if flushy has carte blanche to say WHATEVER he likes on the forum. Doubt any of them will agree with Dubai.

As to the second part, Toby, Moorman etc could post all their threads at 1.6 and they'd be +EV. It's up to people to make an individual judgement as to whether they feel someone is value or not at any price as it can't be proven or quantified.

not at all, but in this case he's spot on. Not because flushy owns the site, more about the fact that he is the biggest staker on the site and if he wants to say he thinks something is over priced that seems pretty fair to me.

I did say almost any player, there are of course exceptions.


Some bloody awful quoting tekkers itt.

Answer is 100% 0%

Say you think the answer is B (50%).. that means if you picked B (50%) at random as your first answer you are left with D (25%) C (60%) and A (25%) therefore B (50%) CANNOT be the correct answer as it wouldn't be right everytime you picked two answers at random. It works this way whatever you pick. So the answer is zero. Its more about words than maths.

As the owner of probably the most successful blonde staking thread of all time (tm), this seems like a good subject upon which to make my 1000th and final ever post (at least until I get to do an 'in the well').

Personally, when I sell action I charge significantly below what the market can bear (imo), for a number of reasons:

Firstly, when I decide to play a tournament I need to make plans regarding travel and accommodation based on the assumption that I definitely will play, sometimes involving flights to the other side of the world etc. To book everything and incur all these expenses and then not get to actually play the tournament is nothing short of an equity disaster, so I see taking a .05 hit on the markup I could charge as insurance against the possibility of not being able to sell.

Secondly, by keeping it 'in the family' and only dealing with people I know and trust, that is some insurance against the possibility of nonpayment; if I were to charge a bit more and price some of my regular buyers out then I would have to deal with unknowns and that carries with it slightly higher risk and much more admin, so again for the sake of .05 here or there I see that as a worthwhile investment.

Finally there is a slight altruistic element, I'm not sure how much of a factor this is to be perfectly honest, but ideally I would like people to do well out of backing me so I tend to look at charging less than the square root of what I estimate my real edge to be, so that both parties make the same return (on the sold portion) on average. I suppose keeping the backers afloat is good for the community in the long term, and I know how much Flushy must do off in the petrol station so I'm thinking of him really.

My opinion on the question of whether non-buyers should be allowed to comment is that I think everyone should be allowed to say what they like and if someone is just trolling it should be easy for the stakee to justify their markup if it isn't actually too high. FWIW I don't think a genuine buyer would ever be put off by replies from other people, if the value is there and the horse stands their ground then a sensible buyer isn't going to leave money on the table.

I was meandering towards a conclusion there but have reminded myself of an interesting thread on facebook where lildave tried to sell at 1.4 for the WSOP main and basically flushy completely undermined this attempt by saying he would buy it but only at 1.25*. Smelling blood, the other ballers in the thread all said the same and Dave ended up not playing, although ostensibly for a different reason. Shamefully I found this absolutely hilarious at the time, but it does raise the interesting possibility of the major buyers on a forum effectively forming a cartel to keep prices down, but that could be countered by shopping around to other forums, if this did happen then blonde would be recognised as a bad place to sell action and horses will go elsewhere and the backers on blonde will eventually find themselves missing out on profitable opportunities.

*In fairness, at the time Dave had no live record and no online mtt record to speak of, or at least didn't include these in the thread, so the price was on shaky ground really.

I think i can shed some light on Keys 'last post' quote.

When we were in Greece, as a sponsored pro by his favourite site, he was recognised in the halllways, by the hot Betfair rep, geeks wanna talk to him, people want to jizz over his car etc etc.

He comes home, and its like hes a nobody again, they take this piss out of his nose, say hes lanky and he continually loses in £1/£2 games.

All this could have been prevented if he was offered the chance to do a well after his fantastic win valliant second place in Australia.

Hes just looking for a little repect. and fame. and a new bird. and a magazine cover. and something to get the bird shit stains out the paintwork on his car.

Thats all.

Given the ego of most poker players I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that they don't like their markups being criticised but I don't really see what the issue is with it.  Dubai has already said in the thread that he would charge as much as he thought he could get away with so if he is willing to sell at a price that is -EV for backers why shouldn't someone be able to say that it is -EV?  I accept trolling is out of order but a legitimate discussion about the markup a player is charging is fair enough imo.  The only time I would consider it a bit distasteful is if it was suggested that spot/par was out of order as that is a bit of an insult.

Doesn't mean its -ev , its just what he thinks he can sell at.


Title: Re: The Best In The Business
Post by: redarmi on November 01, 2011, 08:21:33 PM
No it doesn't mean that but the implication was that he would sell at whatever he could in order to maximise his EV even if that meant it was -EV for the buyer.  Which is fine, caveat emptor etc but people should be able to comment on that if they wish.

Ok question of the day.

You live in Spain and go to Mcdonalds where you get 9 chicken nuggets instead of 6.

What is the least amount of chicken nuggets you would accept as a mistake before complaining. i.e the Spantard gave you 8 instead of 9, 7 instead of 9 etc.

i'd imagine that's going to be a problem if the restaurant you've picked to go to is mcdonalds.

I assume because it's on the walk home and they accept pounds, pleno?

obv would complain with less than 9, obv.

I think O'Dea would be a favourite over Stasko even with 33m vs 40m. I was v impressed by Stasko.

I think Heinz and Mackieski are going to be dangerous if either of them get a double. And Benba dont get beat!

I thinkk this bet is really close to an even money shot

strassman is arguably one of the best HU cash players in the world, he might not win many mtt's but he plays the best at the purest form of poker and wins.

Ok, so since that insane WCOOP FT month which was my biggest ever, I have hardly played.

Looking forward to finishing this HU challenge and hopefully shipping the looooooooooooooooooot, and then will get on a serious grind. I'm so lucky to have such a supportive gf who motivates and makes me keep playing. We watched rounders yesterday and she is the nut opposite of the bitch in that and really wants me to be Mike Fuckking MCD.

Hoping to go to Vegas again this summer and a few other plans that hopefully will materialise. Will play the main event and sell some closer to the time, but really going to get grinding shoes on and start crushing.

Going to play alot of HU SNG's and then play HU/6max. I never ever game select well and hvae abit of an attitude that I can run over the weak regs. I will be a little bit more professional and hopefully make lots and lots of dimes.

Also going to do more regular MTT sessions, I'll start putting threads up on blonde and hopefully winning the world for me and investors.

Everybody seems to be crushing atm,  #TEAMUKFTW

2012 going to be a sick year and maybe you are reading a blog from next years main event champion :D

PokerStrategy entered two teams into the igaming 6aside comp.

I hadn't played for ageesssssss and although used to be very good was unsure if could last 6 hours worth of 5 a side.

We ended up playing betfair, betfred, party, etc etc, was a really fun day and got lots of sunburn :( All the other teams came in bibs, our balla company obv snap buys two sick strips for the gents.

Here's both teams with MVP with the trophy :D

PokerStars is the world’s most popular destination for people looking to play online poker. No surprise there. But you may be surprised to learn that their nearest competitor–in terms of number of active real money players–isn’t another online poker site like PartyPoker. Outnumbering all other sites with a comfortable margin is a company led by a 30-year-old German Mathematics & Philosophy student and former Starcraft player who opted to forsake a career in Business Management in order to go teach all of Europe to play poker.

His name is Dominik Kofert, and his affiliate company, PokerStrategy.com, is the world’s largest localized poker community and depository of poker strategy content. In fact, it’s the most popular online poker destination in the world–and by a large margin. PokerStrategy.com clocks in with an Alexa ranking of around 1,250. The closest ranking content site is the 2+2 Forum, with a ranking of around 3,600. It’s not even close.

PokerStrategy.com is also one of the most successful companies in the history of online poker; and that’s without ever having made single cent from the biggest market of all – the U.S. How in the world did they do that?

You obviously weren't in Gibraltar the year that Mansion won the trophy and as a gift for representing the firm so well Putera Sampoerna flew them all on a private Jet to Englands opener in the 2006 world cup against France.  The year before that Stan James won and Pete Fisher bought them all a drink.

Hahaha, brillant!

Bwin were booted out the comp after literally booting us and others off the pitch. They were all native Gibraltarian and I assume cleaners that hated English workers, anyway they thought they were going to breeze past everyone and ended up seeing red after a few spankings.

I can't see how Barton's doing anything other than looking like a complete prick by having a go at someone with a cleft pallet (no idea if the person who he was taking the piss out of does have a hare lip or not but that's not really the point).

2024: And that, ladies and gentlemen, was England's 2000th international goal. And who, I ask you, would be better suited than Gareth Barry to bring up that particular landmark? Exactly.

Goooooooaaaaaaaaal
England goal: After repeated rampages down the right, England open the scoring with a break down the left. Leighton Baines and Stewart Downing combine well, the latter crossing for Gareth Barry to head in via a deflection off Daniel Majstorovic.

2021: GOALFLASH England 1-0 Sweden (Barry)

BBC Radio 5 live
BBC Radio 5 live pundit Mark Lawrenson: "Theo Walcott is looking extremely lively for England tonight. He and Kyle Walker down the right look like the two most likely to open up this Sweden side."

Walked over to the best team in Gibraltar yesterday who were training, looked a great set up.

I was kitted out in new boots, socks, shorts, bag, looked the buuuuuuuuuusinessss.

"Hi,my name is Patrick, I was wondering if I could train with you"

"Pardon?"

"I was looking for a new team, I'm from England.."

"Not interested mate"

"I played at a pretty high standard in England.."

"Na sorry"

"Serious?"

"Serious."

"Sigh ok."

Ended up signing for another team who aren't as good, but at least not a bunch of ***** lol, played pretty awesome in training etc looking forward to drawing those ***** in the cup and throwing carnage at them.

So so much respect for all who play tournaments, my new hero's are 180 man grinders and people who play sick amounts of tables.

<3 Dean23Priceeeeee

I really played very good this weekend, but variance is just sick, I decided to try and win as many non showdown pots as possible and really not play any HUGE pots, strolled through Sunday Kick Off was 1/75 moved table, found KK vs another chippie and he had AA obv., Was pretty gutting.

I was 3 tabling MAXIMUM, whereas I normally 10+ table minimum, I really enjoyed it and focused on everybody making excessive notes. Deregged after losing 2 stupidly sick pots and went for a walk.

Came back and one tabled the million and played the best I have for a long while, think my roi playing less tables is just stupidly higher as I can udnerstand game flow so much better, I guess this is why I do well live.

Came 70th for like 1.8k which is abit gutting, but secured a #winningsunday

There was also some ticket stubbs from NUFC under 17's v Man U under 17's at St james park ( surely they wont call it the Virgin Stadium now that Northern Rock has been sold to Virgin????.. that would be so ironic!)
Some clothing labels - Fred Perry, lacoste etc!!!

I'm sure to see you about at some point ;)

according to eltiempo.es (who are usually v accurate), it's going to remain dry for the next two weeks, apart from some light showers on the 11th.

edit: about 16deg most days as well, may well sneak into the low-mid twenties over this weekend and monday though.

Raincoat is a must imo, you never know in Gib no matter what the weather forecast says. It can be very hot during the day and rain shower in the evening, you never know. Get a scarf with you and a rain coat (or a good quality umbrella) just to be on the safe side.

Bazza - if you go to the third floor - walk past the HR department and then past the round desk of tech support guys.

Behind that is the marketing team. If you take a left through there (big brown door) you'll see 3 big cubicles. Around the other side of the cubicles, stood next to the soap dispenser and holding some thick tissues is Pads.

Have fun.
