Oh, and some baseball, on Today's Betting Dork (June 21, 2010).
You gotta love when idiots like that come to the table. I 'm always cautious when its a goofy broad cause they always seem to catch rivers. Had one of those 2 nights ago limping in with big slick and she's betting quarters in a 5/10 game the whole way, I smooth called her the whole way with AJ and lost the minimum. Didnt give her shit, just said "nice hand" since after all she had me beat the whole way. Her boyfriend got clobbered and went into his pocket twice while they were there and finally left and she kept playing. Got shitty cards that night and flopped a set of 3's and basically got back to a little under evening that night, off another regular ironically. No one wins everyday. The key is to have minimal losses on certain days and have big profits on others. Even if have you losing days 4 or 5 days a week but bang out a big night or 2, you can be up for the week. Its when you have 5 good nights and 2 or 3 monsters as well, is what keeps you in the black over the long term.
In live cash games, 70-75% donkeys, 10-15%so so, 5-10% sharks. Online its 85%, 10%, 5% respectively. Lotta dumb f**ks play poker. The bigger the stakes, the bigger the whales. However sometimes its easier to play against a bunch of good players since they can be bluffed off their hands if you establish good table presence and have a good read on them, and they will lay down a hand since they know its not wise to chase if the price isnt right. Some idiots will call with anything. Live tourneys is a whole different ballgame
Monday with marco. I hate a small baseball card since I hated all the sides and had to work harder to find a total to bet on. At least it made me work on a new formula which I love to do as you know gill. Always looking for a reason to geek it up and bust out a new math equation. That sucks about dusitn johnson bro, ouch 40-1 woulda been a sweet f**king payday. What blows my mind more its the 3rd UKer to win the US opn since like 1920, and the first one since jacklin in '70, hell wasnt even alive in '70. I didnt even wanna f**k with a run line so I decided on totals. If the jays or mets had been playing today I woulda fired at their runline after your breakdown on those 2 teams last week and all season for that matter. Had my first plus .500 weeks in a month too last week, slightly, going 8-7 but I'll take it after going around 40% for the last 30 days or so. I got a ton of games on the lean list for tomorrow, cant wait to see the prices in the AM. Only game I leaned on today was the yanks and I'm not paying -180 which is what I think I saw it at a few hours ago. Cashed my last 2 world cup games so hopefully shit will turn around for me as it has for you in the bases from late last week. Glad to see both of us getting back on track and hope will kill it the rest of the summer man. I had orlando in that game too, on my own look at the game, always easy to play monday morning QB even though its an NBA game, but you guys get my drift. For the record marco, I bought your dollar under on white sox a coupl eweeks ago, and thanked you in your daily sales thread, so winners are appreciated. F**k the haters. I'll discuss a poker hand with anyone anytime. I can talk about that shit all day. I was supposed to be sitting at the rio right now playing the razz event but the plans fell thru and more than likely I will miss the series a second straight year. Last year I had family issues. Cant complain too much since I got AC ten minutes away and spend 40-50 hours a week in a poker room. You guys did a great job with literally jack shit to work with as far as a betting card goes. Kudos
