I will Play and Represent
A lot of things going on lately and most of them are pretty good on the poker front. I have decided to play in the 1M this Sunday. I figure when BadBlood says “You not all that bad kind of at MTTs” then it is a ringing endorsement and I have to try and take it down!
Speaking of endorsements and things of that ilk I think my head has been getting more swollen than usual. It is hard to be a good humble doobie when you have groupies. It is tough when you win a bunch of contests in a row. It is so hard when people you respect give you props. It gets to be soooo difficult when you kick Gavins ass! You know I took you down boy (I crack myself up)! However it is important to try and keep it real. I have been getting a little obnoxious to the players who are learning out there. So if I called you a Donkey, Fish, Tourist, Idiot, CB, Luckbox, Moron, Fucktard, or any other unmentionable names then I apologize. I was there once and while I would hope I have graduated from donkey to somewhat-decent-when-he-plays-his-A-game I still have a long way to go. I encourage you peeps who do not seem to be able to win.. or always seem to get your money in with the worse hand.. just keep practicing. Take advice from people you respect. Read. Read. Read. Such little things in your game can open your eyes so wide and cause you to jump to that next level. You can become a winning player for sure. I will do my best not to berate you while you are trying.
I am a little tired too of how people say the MTT is all or mostly luck. I think if that were the case nobody would win consistently. All of poker is about luck including MTTs. Each facet of the game be it LHE, NLHE, MTT, SNG, etc, etc.. has a learning curve and has different kinds of skills involved. So for someone to make a blanket statement that MTTs are just luck I think is misinformed. I might have this opinion since I play smaller MTTs and cash fairly regularly. I also ITM a lot in larger field tourneys. I guess I might play a lower risk-lower luck MTT game, and I may find it hard to hit the big money in a large field tourney but its working for now. Just some thoughts.
