BuddyDonk WGHEY Appearance

I had a fun time doing the BuddyDonk show on WGHEY last night. Those guys are pretty funny. I think we all kind of petered off towards the end of the night as exhaustion fell. I had a totally unremarkable night besides that. I broke even for the night with an extra 26-token to my name and the Mookie all paid for.

It could have been much better if my 8's were not sucked out on by LJ's quad sevens on the flop.. all in pre-flop.. or if Instant Tragedy had not sucked out BIGTIME all in pre-flop again against me.. or if my jam on the turn with the best hand had not been rivered by a runner gutshot.. but thus is my life and why I have to be ten times better than most people just to break even. I can dodge bullets baby.

Every time Chad opens his mouth I am amazed at the stupid shit that comes out of it. Just goes to show you do not have to be smart to win at poker or something like that.. Let's take a few of his stupid comments and see how full of shit he is.

1. I have never seen you deep in any major MTT.

Well right off the bat he starts off being full of shit as we both were very very deep in the 50/50 together at the same table.

2. Smokkee is a woman basically

If I said Smokkee is a woman I apologize.. to the women!! For the insult! Even Smokkee must realize that he has been playing in his own words "maybe a little tight".. I will continue to ride Smokkee until he gets back to his donkey self and starts winning MTTs again.

3. Astin is weak

This is an example of him not getting the shit out of his ears from his ass being up his head. I said Astin was tight. Nothing I saw last night said anything different. Read his blog. He went deep because he got smacked in the face with the deck. He actually reminds me of some of the mistakes I tend to lean towards.. waiting for monster cards.. then overplaying them to the extreme. I always have to pull myself away from this style of play in MTTs.

4. Abusing the timebank does not effect good players

Such a stupid comment. If I get to play 2 hands and hour and you get to see 50 because your table is actually playing and mine is stalling then obviously your going to have far more chance to catch a good hand or outplay someone at some point and get the chips you DESPERATELY need for a run to the final table. Learn a little about the game donkey.

5. he has similar stats in MTTs that I do

Now on the face of it this seems like Waffles ranting and spewing off nonsense but let us look deeper into the number.

June: 67% ROI 10% ROI
May: 22% ROI 388% ROI
April: -15% ROI -27% ROI
March: 37% ROI -50% ROI
February: -10% ROI 14% ROI
January: -83% ROI 26% ROI
December: 33% ROI 26% ROI
November: 10% ROI 36% ROI

So which is which? We each have about the same amount of winning months.. Obviously one month is extremely bad for one of us and one month is amazingly good. If you compare the stats player one beats player two for 5 of the last 8 months. Wow! So that must be Chad right? Wrong! It is ME! I am better. See people? ROI is the bottom line. How much are you making on your investment.

Now why does Chad seem to win all this ton of money.. It is the same as any other MTT donkey that you hear winning all the time. They play A TON of game. Chad happens to play full time for a living. In the past eight months he has probably played 1000x more games than I have.. He also plays for higher stakes because he has decided to be serious about the game and invest more into it.

I on the other hand create systems for a living. I make a good amount of money doing it and I enjoy it. If you are not a programmer you can not really understand how fun it is to be in the zone and coding away and seeing these words you type come to life and do things. It is really an amazing job.

I intend to play more events and of higher monetary values in the coming months and while I can not spend my entire day playing a game like Chad can and giving the other player swirlies in the bathroom I think that my results will continue to be better than his and the money from big scores will start flowing in.

dear waffles,

i never would have put you all in w/ my 77 pre-flop if you hadn't been shortstacked. you were shortstacked because you donked off half your stack trying to bluff me on the previous hand. you forgot to mention that on the radio show and in your post. can't wait to kick your ass hu again.

best,

lj

Wow, you let blinky beat you???? Come on Waffles - I expect more than that from you baby. How does she even see the cards what all that twitching going on?

Anyway, it's a good thing that chad is perfect, thus allowing him to talk shit about everyone else in the blogger community.

I guess the rest of us normal people will just have to live our lives trying to do the best we can. I bet it's lonely all the way up there at the top.

How do you figure out a ROI with a base bankroll of zero?

Bankroll and skillz in winning MTTs have zero correlation. I could win every MTT I play, spend it on hookers and blow, and have no bankroll and be the best player ever. I also would have a big grin on my face.

WAFFLES, YOU HAVE TO WIN ONE MAJOR TOURNAMENT BEFORE YOU CAN OPEN YOUR GHEY MOUTH!

I should put a list of every style I've been accused of playing and see how much they cancel out. At least I wasn't called weak. Tight I can deal with.

ROI on a zero bankroll would be..... infinity+1

I am loving all this blogger on blogger trash talking. It's almost like watching a cock fight (if you know what I mean).

It's ghey and wonderful all at the same time.

FWIW, I count the eight months at 4-4, dead even from that measure. The 388% ROI month for player two (May) vs. the -83% ROI month for player one (January) pretty seriously skews things toward player number two, however.

Don't bother looking up my ROI. It sucks.

Are you insane? Nevermind; totally obvious answer.

Look I like you a lot, but you are crazy if you think the only reason guys like chad and lucko and hoy destroy deep field MTTs the way they do is that they play more of them than you. Chad has final tabled the 26k more times in the last two months than almost all other bloggers combined. He don't need me to point it out, but that is a low buy-in MTT that takes insane amounts of patience, skill and THEN gl + repetition to dominate.

ROI is not the be-all brotha. It's important as a BR guide, but be serious. He is better than you.

If (and only if) we wish to compare ROI figures, the generally accepted method by the non-poker-blogging community is compounding the data series. I will let others elaborate.

The results: An investment with Waffles would be down 47% after the 8 month period, while putting your money with Chad would have you up 382% at the end of the same period.

It's not even close.
