  • worse than facebook

    hi all yes im moaning agian but this does have a relevant point. ok,why people would call all in bubble posistion same size stack ive shoved aq,ak e.g have been called with yes wait for it...95 os,93 os,96 os,and been bubbled out....3 tourneys in a row and bare in mind these were tight players who sat tight , wich in effect sent me into major tilt my 8 dollers ide got up to 17 got destroyed i was that angry!
    Ok i reloaded once again,ok my next thing thats really bugging me now,3 days numerous tourneys etc,and not getting the cards or hitting anything,surely from 1 tourney to the next according to variance i should at least have a 1 in 3 tourneys where i am hitting cards and flops,but no completely dry or when i have had the one decent hand know one else has anything so all fold.
    finally the strangest thing i find,i have 2 computers on the same i.p address,my account and my mrs,yesterday and today at the same time different tourneys we had the same cards dealt several times really weird.....my mrs pokerstars ranking around the 94 percent mark,mine around the 59 percent,strange as i sit there and guide her playing exactky the same way,......
    why i say this is worse than facebook.....95,93,96 unbelievable really from a tight player,theres no way im saying anyone would call that sitting there for 3 or 4 hrs then calling a player on a all in with 12 percent play,...unless well not saying it.
    <so please pso dont remove this post as i think theres some really good discussion points,>
    guys and girls i am not no nut job so please dont think so,i play 10hrs a day regulary for years,ive seen more poker than most watching all videos and tv available and playing it,but because of the facebook type players ,good players get stung at low level buyins.....so will never be where they should be....please i want to here your feedback on my thoughts as loong as pso dont remove it,i would gladly show you my hands,but what do you know my hand generator doesnt work even tho it was at first hmmmm......

    I don't think they'll remove it, they might just move it to another forum. Seriously though, if you want to see some bad beats, shadow me for awhile. I get them a couple times per hour. It happens. Just be glad you're getting called by 93. umbup:umbup: This actually reminds me of my most recent blog post. Check it out if you have time.

          Players who are new to the game don't understand bubble principles, and in a low-stakes game they are less likely to care about cashing. You can't expect aggressive play in SNG's to take weak players off their hands as often as you'd like, but if you're short-stacked, then getting it in with AQ is the best you can hope to do. The rest is up to the cards.

            have you watched spacegravy videos on s+g's ?
            also before we can say that only reason you are losing is because of these unusual plays
            we must first ascertain what your win rate is in s+g's
            a good player will be 20% to 23% ITM with a few thousand s+g's as a database
            I could name 3 players that have that
            a lot of pro's are floating at 15% ITM with high ROI's
            I dont think anyone can make a profit over time if they are less than 15% ITM in s+g's
            if a player is less than 15% ITM in s+g's then its a strong signal that that player is playing bad poker

              a good place to look at that would be opr

              http://www.officialpokerrankings.com/

              look at cowboy...19honu62
              spacegravy
              boku87

              this will give you idea of what 2 pros can do and what cowboy can do
              the only thing that separates cowboy from pros
              is four letters p r o s
              hahahaha
              actually the only thing that separates cowboy from pros is the stakes cowboys plays at
              his stats appear to surpass most pros

              almost impossible to make a profit with less than 15% ITM
              ITM is .... in the money

                  what does that have to do with his question about idiots calling with anything??

                            was the 2009 numbers from one or 2 big hits..... or was it consistant. A friend of mine has numbers like that that were skewed due to him getting lucky once in a big tourney.
