Random Stuff

This post may be a bit waffly.....

I played the SCOOP $5k PLO... no good. I got it all in on the turn with top two and open ender, against middle two and two flush draws, river a flush... pretty standard really. I skipped the $10k main, the time zone for Euro players is terrible unless you get into a rhythm of staying up all night, and i would have begun to tire only 5 hours into the tourney, which would have made it extremely tough to do well.

Getting into the zone. For me anyway, there is such a difference in how i play after i've had a shower, gone to the gym and eaten before i even consider playing. Often my worst days are when i roll out of bed and start playing before i've even grabbed a glass of water. I'd love to see the actual stats, but the difference it makes is huge.

I read the poker forums a bit, but thats about the only poker stuff i ever read. I don't have a HUD (i think thats the term)... don't even know what it is really. I've never read a poker strategy book, i've never studied statistics on my opponents, and never sat out/quit a player even when they have beaten me over a decent sample. I'm a pretty competitive person, and i hate to lose so much at anything, that sitting out against someone just seams so weak so i never do it. I wander if i'd be a much better player if i spent hours studying hand histories, had a HUD running etc. I don't really get how all the big game selectors expect to get any better if they never even play anyone competant.

Durrrr challenge. I've actually considered giving this a go.... the offer of $1.5 million if i beat him, compared to paying out $500,000 is really appealing. I'd definitely do it if i could sell a big enough percentage. I'd guess the worse case scenario would be losing $2 million ish, then having to pay up $500k. I'm way to much of a bankroll nit to take the chance of that kind of loss. It would be interesting, i'm not ruling it out under the right circumstances.

It would be amazing to see you lock horns with Dwan at PLO.

Shame I could only buy about £20.54 of your action though!

I was refereed here about backing, I was told you might be interested in taking a horse. I am looking to get backed and have solid stats including a 3rd in the $3r for close to 4k. If you'd be interested in talking just email me at delsol3322@gmail.com.

I was told to post a comment here about backing, I would like to get backed and was told you might take a horse up. I have solid stats and would be willing to workout something if you are. You can email me if you're interested at all at delsol3322@gmail.com thanks.

wtf

i dont wear pyjamas (in fact only because someone else posted do i know how to spell it).

nice to see i got someone using my name on blogs now as well lol.

sure you can sell plenty of action if you decided to do the durr challenge but you want to take a risk of a million or so just to prove a point? your graphs do that already.

I used to known as PJ in my town as I loved playing in my pyjamas and you can ask any of my mates The Hendon Mob, The Devilfish, The Hit Squad and loads others.

The funny thing was that I never won in my pyjamas but when I didn't have them on I didn't ever win either I suppose that is a lose lose situation = +ev.
