Would be fun if you won deauville next week and came back and said you busted, just to keep your anonymity. Smiley

Yeah it's incredibly frustrating. As KoTH has been implemented on some sites you get grimmed/buttoned a lot when you join tables to play/steal them. I probably played like 200 extra BBs or something last year because of it. Might not sound a lot, but still annoying.

I never ever grim myself intentionally, and if someone joins me I try to play 2 hands.

I will be doing my best to win Smiley

Here's a deal. If I make the final, I'll 'out' myself on here for the railbirds. Slightly wishful thinking but let's see!

Better yet, if you make the final, out yourself for the one hour or whatever it is where you can edit a post, then delete the post. Make it so your hard core fans know who you are, but the casuals have no clue.

Or do a sweepstake and PM 3 random people your name, but nobody else.

I for one think its cool you are being anonymous.

I saw something on Sharkscope the other day which suggested that 22% of Online Players are profitable.  (I assume this excludes cash players). I was quite surprised by that stat, & I'm not even sure I buy it - I assumed the % would be less than that.

It seems like the right figure - over a period of, say, a month, 22% isn't going to be far off the % of players who have won money, but this will include people who played 4 hands and doubled up, played one MTT and cashed, along with the guy who played 50,000 hands and finished up $0.58, none of whom would necessarily be long-term winners.

I prefer Vinnie's idea, and find it quite amusing that people are irritated by your wish to remain anonymous Grin

Good luck in Deauville!

Tyty!

Really swingy day today. Ran about 8bi below EV but still managed to a small win.

Really happy with how I've been playing this year after a long break over Xmas. Having said that, one particular hand I played the other day is tilting me to fk. Basically FPS syndrome vs another good regular. Had set up the dynamic where I'd checked back some strong hands on the turn (to disguise my range and get called a little lighter, make myself harder to play etc.) But in reality, I think it's bad vs this opponent, he wasn't quite on the level I was thinking at and just absolutely snapped with one of the hands near the top of his range...


BB: $3,412.50 (341.3 bb)
Hero (SB): $1,000 (100 bb)

Preflop: Hero is SB with
Hero raises to $25, BB calls $15

Flop: ($50) (2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets $40, BB calls $40

Turn: ($130) (2 players)
BB checks, Hero checks

River: ($130) (2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets $100, BB raises to $370, Hero raises to $935 and is all-in, BB calls $565

Results: $2,000 pot ($1 rake)
Final Board:
BB showed and won $1,999 ($999 net)
Hero mucked and lost (-$1,000 net)

Fwiw I'm not into posting a load of brag hands, more stuff to learn from. That particular hand was bugging me, so felt good to get it off my chest.

The hand above is pretty horrible without a lot of history on villain, and I thought I'd established the check back turn strong dynamic with him enough that I can rep flushes.

Way too much FPS tho

I know the kinda guy.

Maybe you can take this line for value and the c/f river vs such a nit? He's probably not calling with worse, and probably isn't turning sets etc into a bluff without a blocker like . I'd need some kinda stats to try and work out if you can profitable jam or c/c this river, but vs nitty bumhunter c/f can't be bad.

Still cold tho, ul

Obv!

Hmm depends who I'm with but if heads up with a good mate we share a full chicken platter, sometimes get something on the side like a pitta too if really hungry.

Have got the whole chicken platter to myself a few times, but it's way too much food.

Also, I like it HOT
