So and so…
After playing some live cards (not poker) tonight, I decided to play a little on Stars…a win here and there, but mostly 2nd or 3rd place finishes…enough to still keep me loser…oh well…satisfied with my play, in “must win” situation, especially three handed I ran into some bad luck I would say, if I have ATs on the button and the BB wakes up with AKo the hand plays itself automatically…oh well…enjoy the short pic dump…
Oh, before I forget it: for all the rush players who happen to be PT3 users as well, check out the newest beta which was just released, it supports rush now…the end of “no data” rush as we knew it…enjoy…
Right back at ya
After yesterday’s rants and playing well after I should have stopped – yes I even played again after the rant post – I was back calm and collected at the tables at Stars. Pretty uneventful, although I gotta say it’s a good feeling when you can finally have a hand hold up in crucial pots (and or win a flip in that spot) when playing turbo SnGs. Played four of them (6max, turbo, $12+1), won 2 and finished 2nd in another. Nice. Apart from that I played one turbo DS to the sunday million, no dice again.
Not much more I gotta tell you atm, except that it’s a good feeling to finally note down a winning session, albeit a short one, but who cares…enjoy the random pic dump and I’m outta here (the first 9 snaps are from yesterday, the rest from today, pt graph only showing the 4 SnGs, not the DS…time I figured out how to filter properly in PT3 I guess…hints on how to filter something like “last x tournaments” would be appreciated)…
Pokerstars can kiss my ass, too
Fucking cunts. What a lovely way to start off a post, get it out of your system. Yes! After today’s FTP disaster I went back old school on Stars playing one turbo DS to the sunday million (11.7$) and one shorthanded DS to the sunday million (8.8$). What happens in both, I get donkkicked.
Situation one: We started out with a table of nine. After around 90hands, we’re down to three and I’m the chipleader. Wheeee. Then the shorty (2.8k with 300/600 blinds) goes all-in from the button. I look down at 77 in the BB and after the SB folds I instacall. He shows 67 s0000ted. Flop gives him a straight draw which completes on the turn leaving me with 3 outs to a fucking chop (6). Of course the river bricks and the donktard doubles up and I’m left with around 2.4k instead of being headsup with a 7 to 5 chip lead. Fast forward to my next BB. I look at AQ s0000ted. SB shoves I instacall. He shows KQo (see below). K on the turn and I’m busto. Thumbs up stars, you’ve monkeyfucked me in a crucial pot for the 1 trillionth time.
As you see, 3 outs are gold. Weird though that everytime I find myself in a 3 outer spot, well, let’s just say I hit it about average. My opponents though hit a grand-slam homerun every single time it’s a crucial pot. How come?
In the 6 max one, I’m at the final table. About five hands in, a trend is forming. One player keeps overshoving the pot. I guess it’s part of his/her strategy as 6th place pays 0, so chances are slim someone is calling without the nuts. Wrong. Once the donktard shoves from the SB over my button raise, I basically instacall with my nines. AQ s0000000ted is my opponent. Flop flush draw…turn blank…river ace…cya. Nice! Now, losing a flip shouldn’t throw me over the edge and after that flop it would have been foolish to believe my hand could ever hope up, but still I’m fed up with this shit. Everytime I flip for a small amount in a dumb pot, I win. Everytime I flip for a crucial pot, I lose. Believe me, this is probably just the tilted analysis, but I’m going to check all my stats in PT3 for sure and I’m willing to lay 2:1 that my 50% looks more like 30% over all the hands I’ve played….(chips/money wise, not win/lose)…I’ll get back to you about that…anyway…I’m outta here…
Mood: Steam-tilt; thinking about quitting online poker for good – just one of these days, I guess…
The Rush is over…busto
Well, well, good job FTP…or should I say good job Ingoal? No matter what, after four days of playing rush on FTP (after reloading), I’m officially busto again. Rush – the quickest way to evaporate your bankroll! (TM)
Teeeheee mofos! I could go on about the cooler here and the cooler there, but what use is it? It’s tough to stay sane if you run into bs after bs…add to that, that it’s sometimes so hard not to overcommit when everyone is on crack and what are the chances someone has a higher pair than your JJ and QQ when it folds around to you – hint: not all that high…in rush it feels like 97,5%…
…and quicker than you can say “get the fuck out of here”, you’ve got one hell of a bad run that is unprecedented. All in all it took me 4.129 hands to go busto, should have been busto before that, but after getting aces cracked left and right I was able to crack ’em myself, just in time to give me a few extra hands…hehe…anyway…hawesome how I kept away from FTP exactly for that bs as I couldn’t catch a break, no I run back to the poker crack dealer and they got exactly what I need…getting kicked in the junk four times as much per hour….nice.
Some fun stats:
– Lost 0.05$ per hand
– #1 hand dealt 96o (54 times)
– Most money won (total): QQ 23.27 (dealt 25 times, won 22 times)
– Most money lost (total) AQ -39,63 (dealt 39 times, won 24 times)
– Only winning position: UTG (lol)
I’m feeling kind of numb right now…so I’ll let you enjoy the final rush pic dump and I’m outta here…not to return to FTP for at least the next 1.5 years…or maybe I should make it 3 as the first 1.5 years obviously didn’t do any good…
Those were the players I was up against today, soul crushers. I started off with a quick session winning around 1.5 buyins. Then later today I came back for a longer session and they really crushed my soul.
The old overpair vs overpair I can take, but what’s a lot harder to take is being river over and over and over and over. How can ppl honestly call preflop, on the flop and on the turn with air and hit their fucking river like 80% of the time? Two outer? No problem. 4 outer – no problem. 3 outer – no problem. 6 outer – why do you even ask if a 2 outer is no problem, go ahead monkeyshove, the dealer will peel it off for you.
What adds fuel to the internal steam-producing fire is the fact that you can’t get any fucking action on your big hands, at least on most of them. How come I get aces 4 times, and get no action whatsoever on two of them? How come on the other hand everytime I get kings I get monsteraction and usually end up getting junkkicked so hard, I could scream from the pain? Wtf is going on here? Full Donk Poker? Hidden camera show? Wtf!
In the end it got so frustrating that I did something I rarely if ever do…I donkshoved my last stacks in when I just knew that my opponent had sucked out…again. Disappointing. Anyway, enough of the rant, I’m outta here. Utterly frutstrated, mad and tilted, which seems to be the norm these days. Happy fucking day to y’all…
Rush, rush, rushing
Only a short session today playing two rush tables at once. Took some beats (one of the nastiest was KK vs AA on a AKQ board…yikes…), put some beats on other ppl…all in all I’m really satisfied with my play today. Could be a normal up-swing, could be the adjustments I made, too early to tell after ~500 hands, we’ll see how it goes over the next few days/weeks…until then…enjoy the pic dump…I’m outta here…
Hello, I’m Ingoal, a cash game donk
Hehehe…just goes to show you how good natured I really am, I can still laugh after dropping 10Buyins. After 1,5 years of abstinence at Full Tilt, I decided to jump back in, because of the newest hype “Rush”. The concept has been widely discussed, so I’m assuming you know what I’m talking about.
I played around 5 hours of Rush so far and I’m really frustrated. I can’t get action on my big hands, if I do I got the second nuts running into the nuts, and I think I gave to much action on different occasions, when in reality it was totally unnecessary. Side effect of the constant action? Gambling mood? I think both are true to some extent and the fact that I’m usually a (turbo) SnG player doesn’t translate that well to cash…
Early lessons after analyzing the first 1.5k hands played:
1. It’s not worth defending the BB unless you’ve got a monster.
2. It’s not worth defending the SB either.
3. LP/Button – constantly raise, most ppl can’t be bothered to defend (see 1. and 2.) and if they do, they usually have a monster
4. Don’t be afraid to take a break every now and then – I usually only take a break after 2hours or something, but you gotta consider that I played around 300h per hour playing rush. That’s way above the usual hands/hour I play in any other game.
5. JackAce is the shiznuts. Got it 16 times, won 14 out of 16..lol…biggest winner ranked by Amount Won.
6. AQ and TT are the cash game devil…cost me a good 40 bucks running into AK, a small set or some random bs (Kx, etc)…
7. Don’t be afraid to pot, pot, pot it if you’ve got a monster…ppl are willing to fold for small bets just as they’re willing to call big if they’ve got a piece of it…and if they don’t they’ll fold anyway as the next hand is just 1s away….
I’m outta here…time to regroup and relax a little…no more poker today…
Foul mood continues
Well, well, well…good job PS, good job. Reel me in with a reload bonus, then continue to torture me…really nice. All in all the only thing I’m satisfied with tonight is my play, with one exception (TPNK no gold against a set, crippled myself), and the fact that I quit after only 4 matches including 3 junk kicks. All in all I got one second (which should have been a first), 3 outered on the bubble and junk kicked with AA vs KK on a J high flop, while self-destructing in one (see above). Oh well…FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!
Now that I got that out of my system, I want to take the chance to talk about a novelty I just thought of. This year, there’s been only one new element to my blogs so far – the pt graph of the results. I want to introduce another one, which will hopefully be a little more polished in the days/weeks to come.
All the regulars, grinders, the fonkeys (fucking donkeys) and even the fonkdishes (donk fishes) know the feeling after playing. You take down a tourney or score nicely and you’re elated or you’ve just been kicked in the junk feeling like an NFL-kicker did the kicking…and everything that lies between that…and while you can sometimes read about that or deduct it from the way a post is written, you rarely see a clear “indicator” of the mood or state of mind the person was in. That’s why I thought about making that transparent (and maybe even a little funny). I won’t call it Tiltmeter, as that would imply that I expect to end up in some kind of tilt after any given session – which, tbh has been the case more often than not lately, but I don’t want it to be.
So I’ll think of a better name and if I can find the time I’ll even make a few icons and/or a scale (with a legend explaining the different “moods”) for it…until then I’ll just write it down and put it before the “legendary” pic dump aka “random junk kick mixed with some winning hands” brought to you by ps…
Pre-tilt: Feeling sick after getting one too many junk-kicks, but still positive about
a) realizing that tilt is only one beat away
b) getting the hell out of dodge after realizing a)
Alrighty…I’m outta here, enjoy the pic dump…
Junk-kick, episode 30291021
Well, a little bit frustrated about the result tonight…play a grand total of 23 SnGs including 6max, HU and 4player HU (winner takes all). I got kicked in the junk more than I was kicking back…really fugly when people call your all-in on a double-paired board with a ten high flush draw with one card to come…of course they hit…happens…oh well…I’m outta here…some relaxing and a good night’s sleep and I’ll be back…
Yet another even shorter session in the books. Went 3 for 5 in headsup matches. Bla…I guess I’ll grind out some more once the weekend rolls around…time to start earning some more Points towards the Stellar Rewards thingy and my 2010 deposit bonus…
