The shark, The fish and The donkey

So today I decided to have a lil fun and play a $5 sng. I do well in these and they are usually easy br boosters. I had a ton o fun, like with a barrel o monkeys. It's a bit long, but I have cut all non-pertinent info out. I guarantee you will enjoy, or at least I hope you find it half as funny as I do !

By the way, another funny story...

You know you have poker issues when the program you use for work is called SNG SmartApp Next Generation and you're on the phone with a co-worker talking about your "Sit n Go training" and then you say "OMG did I just say Sit n go??"

to slipry: hi & gl
DistantHaze: u2
to slipry: 33 he says this when 3 limpers in pot including the bb, and flop comes KKT and he min bets, bb calls and then he checks the turn for the bb to bet and take the pot down.

Stud 8

Ok, I've decided that I don't much care for split pot games. Dunno why, just do.

This had blew my entire profits at this table. Sigh.

FTP's latest upgrade isn't working right. If you use the auto-center feature the HH doesn't show the dealt cards correctly. So I'll just give you the final results. I had a MADE Q high flush on 5th street and started capping the betting at that point.

But I got greedy.

Then I got sucked out on.

Poker Stars Opens New Fish Market

Just in case there is someone reading this that doesn't follow the threads at fulltiltforum.com, here's a cut n' paste from a post I made there:

After two days of wading in the murky waters of Poker Stars new limit Deuce to Seven Triple Donk games (haven't tried the NL version yet,) allow me to assure you, friends, that fishing season has officially started and the fish are biting hard.

I strongly suggest you memorize the top ten 2-7 TD hands...

#1 - 7 5 4 3 2
#2 - 7 6 4 3 2
#3 - 7 6 5 3 2
#4 - 7 6 5 4 2

#5 - 8 5 4 3 2
#6 - 8 6 4 3 2
#7 - 8 6 5 3 2
#8 - 8 6 5 4 2
#9 - 8 6 5 4 3
#10 - 8 7 4 3 2

...and then do a little nut peddlin'.

I can almost guarantee that in the first orbit you will see someone a) play an Ace like it's low, or b) call or even raise all the way to the river with a straight or a flush.

Here's the strategy. It's complex, but I know you folks can handle it:

  1. Only play starting hands with draws of two cards or less.

  2. If you get 2345x to start, MUCK THE FIVE and draw two!

  3. Only play draws of fewer cards then there are remaining draws (i.e., fold if you don't improve).

  4. You may call ONE bet and take one card on the last draw if you are drawing to a top four hand.

  5. Jam the effing pot when you are pat.

  6. Rinse, repeat.

Of course, if you want to you can certainly get fancier than that, but why bother?

tom, dick and donkey...

I played the $10 DS NLHE MTT on Full Tilt night before last. It was a rare night when I wasn't exhausted so I thought I'd give it a try. I was seated at a fun table, a few friendly chatters giving each other a hard time, but no nasty stuff so it was refreshing.

Of course it wasn't before long that I had to chime in, cause well, I can't let other people get all the attention.

tom2585: evil monkey you ever won any money online before?
Evil Munkey: yeah twice
tom2585: how long you been playing poker?
Evil Munkey: i won 800 about 3 weeks ago
Evil Munkey: but it is almost gone now


this is when I decide to look him up on sharkscope.com and the pokerdb.com- impress them with my mad skillz


Evil Munkey: is this leading to you burning me?
tom2585: no you already gave me all the info i needed within the first 5 hands of this tourney
khanwoman: his total winnings since Jan 05 on ftp is $695 in mtts
khanwoman: $575 of that being on 9/27/06
Evil Munkey: i won 120 more hand for hand that same night
tom2585: who are you his bookey?
khanwoman: it's the crystal ball
Evil Munkey: kinda creepy khanwoman
khanwoman: indeed
khanwoman: looks like you suck at sngs tho, havent played many
tom2585: sngs?
Evil Munkey: sngs?
tom2585: lol
khanwoman: sit n gos
tom2585: this isnt a sng
Evil Munkey: oh those suck


silly donkeys

Evil Munkey: i play those at 2 am when there are no other tournys
tom2585: lol sng are gauranteed money lol
tom2585: if you know how to play

OH Reaaaaaaally tom? Let's see...

Evil Munkey: gets late and i go all in on somthing stupid
tom2585: exactly and i bank of your kind of playing
khanwoman: tom youve played 73 sngs and youre - $109
Evil Munkey: i have only played like 5 sit and go's
khanwoman: 7 evil
Evil Munkey: creepy
tom2585: that actually sounds right
Evil Munkey: wow how long has it been since my last poop


So, I decide to clue them in, mainly cause I like my stats on sharkscope.com... PHEAR THE KHAN!

khanwoman: i know it is sharkscope.com
khanwoman: says youre a fish tom
tom2585: lol
tom2585: good
tom2585: im an unorthadox player so thats prob right
Evil Munkey: me too


Yeah that's it!! Nail.on.head.

tom2585: but khanwoman it doesnt put alcohol into those calc
tom2585: and bad beats
Evil Munkey: true
khanwoman: those shouldnt matter
khanwoman: im drinking now
khanwoman: want one?


I was gonna ask him for ID first, but he never responded. Long break before this...

khanwoman: did you go look at your stats tom?
tom2585: oh yeah
khanwoman: like the lil fishbowl?
tom2585: i do


If you've never been on sharkscope this is what a player search looks like...
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

tom2585: i played a few times after the bars for a while there
tom2585: just recently decided to stop
tom2585: thats where the recent peak is from
tom2585: keep an eye on it
khanwoman: good for u
tom2585: i will watch yours as well
khanwoman: good


You do that tom.


tom2585: hey khanwoman bet you i will make it to $250 profitablilty first lol
khanwoman: mk
khanwoman: ill take that bet... $10?
tom2585: yes
khanwoman: u know thats only for sngs right?
tom2585: yeah
khanwoman: k
khanwoman: lets do it
tom2585: goodluck
khanwoman: u2 youll need it
tom2585: i know lol
tom2585: i am way down



I know tom... I know. So regardless whether or not I ever see that money (or win the bet, I guess anythings possible) I enjoyed placing the bet anyhow!

A couple hands later my AQ was beat by AT for all my chips... c'est la vie.

Saturday, November 04, 2006

We are ALL WINNERS!

Hardly.

I was a "winner" in this hand and ended up with less chips than I started with.

I raise PF, SB pushes, BB pushes, I call all in.
