With the pulling out of the 2 highest-volume poker sites from the State, poker pros have to make a decision… stay in the state and risk possible (albeit unlikely) prosecution or relocate.
fuckyeahgrinding asked: BTW if you're folding Queens on that flop, are you folding Aces and Kings as well?

Made up for my donkage.
Yesterday, Quentin came over for the second half of the game and we played a couple SNGs while the Hawks creamed the Cards. I loaded up two $20 turbos and could have sworn I was going to donk both of them after having to fold QQ to a short-stack shove from the button and a Big Blind over-shove… and also min-raising with AT 5-handed and having to call a Small Blind shove because of the...
Rakeback comes and goes...
Got my first Rakeback payment today for $44… and then proceeded to jump into 4 SNGs for about $49 and lose 3/4 so far. Sweet! Now let’s just hope I win this last one so I can only show a $5 net loss from my Saturday Morning donking adventure. UPDATE: I ended up taking 3rd in the last one for a net-loss of $35.
Training Day and MTTs...
Planning to spend the day watching Poker Pwnage vids and playing low buy-in Full Tilt MTTs. Haven’t played much over the last few days… Wednesday was our live game, Thursday I was trying to figure out that Xpadder gamepad thing for Cereus, and yesterday I spent showing one of my friends how crazy online poker is before spending the rest of the night playing Battlefield Bad Company 2...

fuckyeahonlinepoker asked: What you said makes a lot of sense, and I'm starting to struggle a bit at 50NL. Also, at 25NL rush I actually posted a modest profit in the SB - ppl would let me limp-lead too often.
fuckyeahonlinepoker asked: Hey. I signed up for DeucesCracked thru your link, and will add a page for their rakeback offer on my site. I think DC has a 2 tier referal scheme so you might get like 0.5% if I refer anyone. Lmk if you want me to sign up for any other site thru you.
fuckyeahonlinepoker asked: Since my crazy Stars meltdown I'm up maybe 50 over 7000k hands (50NL). Very swingy. The last few hands included a suckout double up AKs v AA (co v but) and then an omg 200bb win with a5 v 88 on a5ax8.
fuckyeahonlinepoker asked: Here's a question for, you how often do you CR in cash games, and in what type of spots? I fear that I may not do it enough, and could use some tips..
Makin' moniez at Absolute.
After the bad news came for WA players at Pokerstars, I decided to make my Absolute Poker account this weekend. To my displeasure, I found “kuwlade” is already taken as a screenname… kinda weak when I built this whole blog around my handle. Anyway, played 10-15 SNGs on there this weekend under my new name, “dirtyfive”. And the results… up $200! Granted,...
fuckyeahonlinepoker asked: I like dirtyfive, and I'm using HEM on my PC. I'm liking it, although I'm a n00b at both PT and HEM. HEM seems to work a lot smoother for Rush poker, although it's friggin' hard to get a meaningful sample size on anyone. I'm concerned about getting false reads - it's so hard to fold against a 50 5 whale!
And on to Absolute Poker... →
I logged into my Pokerstars account yesterday to read the bad news… Washington State players can no longer play real money games. Thanks to a Supreme Court decision last week, Pokerstars decided it did not want to come under fire. Unfortunately, this probably means Full Tilt will follow suit as my friend wasn’t able to make another deposit there the other day. This is upsetting, but...
I'll take my downswing when I'm broke, thanks.
My Pokerstars cash balance has been pretty ugly ever since I cashed out to buy that laptop and my hands all of a sudden aren’t holding for shit. On the bright side, I have become 100% bankroll conscious so I’m only playing the lowest buy-in MTTs and SNGs there. This past Saturday I was getting deep in the Daily Dollar Rebuy on Tilt when I ended up flatting behind a multi-way pot with...
fuckyeahonlinepoker asked: But I didn't OL 99! I I called a limp, pf from sb. And yeah, I don't realy ever OL. I have tried minraising my smallish pairs from EP recently though.
BTW, what the heck happened to your tumblr layout? It's looking exceptional.

This is how I lose pots...
Played a couple MTTs and several SNGs last night and this morning… managed to knock my Pokerstars bankroll down to $46. Figured I’d take a shot on two $20+$2 SNGs with the last of it before I get my new laptop on Monday since $46 is practically play money. Took down the 1st one and lost heads up in the other for a total of $144 profit. I was high on my results so of course I had to...
Pokerz can be evil biotch at times.
At least when people are sucking out on me… ;)
New Laptop - HP DV7-4060us, w00t! →
Figured it was time to upgrade my money-maker (or loser, technically) so I cashed out some of my poker monies and put it towards this sexy machine. Should be able to multi-table 6 SNGs with no over-lap now… and when I get tilted, I get the additional option to let off some steam in Star Craft II. Finally, I might stop getting the “animations have been disabled” dialogue in...
MI_turtle (SNG Nick) Interview *REBLOG →
I was about halfway through an MTT field yesterday trying to follow up my final table from Saturday (highly unlikely, I know) when I see this guy MI_turtle with Supernova status. I looked him up and quickly realized I’m playing with one of the most known online pro-grinders. He shoved over my preflop raise with AQ (I think) with 77 and I improved to knock him out of the tournament. ...

Getting back into the groove.
Played me an $11+1 SNG last week before I went to Warped Tour for the weekend. It was my first game online since we moved into our new place and I pwned me some fools. I ended up taking it down on the first hand of heads up thanks to a lucky 6 on the river. I had about a 2:1 chip advantage and figured I’d push my opponent around a bit on the button. He called my raise, flop went...
Poker on the back-burner again.
Been a while since I posted an update, but once again there’s little to report. After my last post I had myself a few awful sessions followed by a very small winning one so the graph is not looking so pretty anymore either. A couple days ago I rolled my laptop back to XP to hopefully get some better performance out of it, but haven’t had the time to get Holdem Manager setup and that...
Ok, less ashamed now.
A pretty good couple days of poker made up for my tilt session Sunday night so figured I’d go ahead and post a new graph. Really hard to believe I’ve already logged over 30K hands… I said it last post and I’ll say it again, Carbon Poker players are crazy loose. Sometimes I join a table, get AKs on my first big blind and it goes all calls to me. I really don’t know...
Up quicky, down quicker.
Got some serious game time in this weekend and ended up about a buy-in on Full Tilt and 2 buy-ins on Carbon. I cleared the first $100 of my FT Deposit Bonus so I decided to stop playing until they activate the other $500. Carbon Poker is a total fish tank… Well, I can’t speak for the small+ stakes, but the micro stakes are literally 75% fish and 25% tag-fish. It’s...
Playing like a donk.
Lately, I feel I’ve lost my way a bit. I was grinding out a decent profit, but it really wasn’t anything significant. My highlight was over the memorial day weekend I think I made about $60, but putting into perspective the time I put in (something like 10 hours) it’s actually pretty crappy. $6 an hour is really just not worth it… so of course I’ve taken a couple...
I prefer rainy weekends.
Put a decent amount of Poker time in this weekend thanks to our ever-bright and sunny weather here in the Pacific NW. On Saturday night, I played at Justin’s cash game and over 5 hours only managed to lose $5. Jeff Sadighi left the table with a more than $50 profit. As far as online play goes, I probably put in 8 hours total of 2-4 table 10NL and played somewhere around 10 SNGs (mostly...
A Douche of Clubs
I took 2nd place in Mike’s house game tourney Tuesday. It was a crazy, crazy suck-out game. I nearly busted Quentin when my 55 vs his AA made a set on the flop. 2 hands later he sucked me out in similar fashion. A few hands later he raised with K7 and I shoved with JTo. He called and I caught a Jack on the river to nearly bust him again when he had the best of it pre-flop. He finally...
A long way back to even.
It’s depressing when you spend 3.5 hours grinding 2-4 tables only to find you made a little over $1.50/hr. You can see by the updated graph it’s going to take probably 80 hours of solid grinding to make up for my weekend of tilting at the higher stakes. The good news is I’m winning slightly and I’m feeling much more confident after taking 3rd place in our Tuesday...
Light on the Poker please...
Haven’t been playing a whole hell of a lot of online poker lately… I’ve had recording projects the last couple weekends and we’ve got a live Tuesday game going again. My other weekday evenings have been spent mostly watching Deucescracked vids and trying not to fall asleep in the process… which brings me to the point I’m still on the lookout for a few friends...
I should give more credit...
Figured it was time for another update… just wish I had better news to report. The fact is I’ve just endured a significant blow to my bankroll after taking a shot at 25NL trying to employ strategies that I didn’t fully understand. Double barreling was my biggest leak over my “downward spiral”. Being aggressive on the turn at these stakes is just absolutely...
