Trauma Is Back

Trauma is back hitting up the online tables instead of rolling his ass off on the craps tables. Just in time to put a big smackdown on me to. Oh did that hurt. I played it horribly though.

I had KK on the button and Trauma limped in. I knew he was calling any raise I made so I popped it to 4xBB and got us HU. Figured I would take the extra cash when he folded the flop. The board comes out a pretty benign Txx. I lead out here for a pot sized bet of 1/4 his remaining stack. He of course cold calls. Just a tip. If it costs you a fourth of your stack IT IS NOT FLOATING. Anyhow.. I see the ten on the turn and something inside me says I am dooomed. However I go ahead and bet off half my stack and then do not fold to his jam. Very badly played on my part. I knew his range for the flop cold call was basically QQ-JJ, or Tx. With the ten on the turn I probably should have slowed down and definitely folded to his jam. Oh well his JTo was good.

Sometimes I react to what is going on in a hand. This is really bad. I think the best thing I can do for my poker game is take more time deciding on things.

Last but not least I have to give props to PokerPeaker for an excellent play last night. I had a weakish hand so I called his flop bet but did not put any pressure on him. We both checked the turn. Weak on my part. He then fired out a pot sized bet on the river with Queen high. He made a great read that I had a weak pair and stuck with it. He knew I had the ability to fold there sometimes and bet an amount that was half both of our stacks but just a pot sized bet. It was pretty good sizing. Big enough to be scary but not over the top to cause suspicion. Took a lot of balls to fire that bullet. I approve. Another person tried that on me but he made a very small bet giving me odds to call. This is not the way to make this play work. Again props to the Peaker.

Irongirl who is totally hot says if I mention Tiffany Michelle's breasts my traffic will increase. Who knew.

Tonight is the second of nine in the Mookie contest. I have enjoyed this so much after just one game that I do not care if I win or lose. I intend to win but having a fun competition and hearing all the shit slinging going on and backdoor deals makes this a win win situation no matter what.

Apparently Bayne and IT are not as confident as they seem since they BOTH have brokered deals with Hoyazo to hedge their bets with me. Fear is the mind killer.

Unlike me I think making bets is bad for LJ's game. I think she changes her style of play. Possibly she plays more like she would in a real MTT so you would think that would be good. Personally she scares me a hell of a lot less this way. Crazy people making crazy plays that is what is scary.

Surfluxus is running well in the MATH and other events. I think this means he has used up all his mojo for the week and will flame out early. We will see.

I have played no poker since last week and am ready to play my worst so I can win again. WOOT! I actually think last weeks Mookie was one of my best games in a while. Sure I made a few mistakes but I played a very aggressive style and pulled off some huge bluffs that made a lot of difference. I feel good about my game right now. Really refreshed and ready to kick some ass.

Last but not least the Google scandal. I could care less about pagerank and advertising. It is all an added bonus. I am a little pissed off that when I try and find Mookie by searching Mookie99 I have to go to his old site to find him. I also think that searching my name and having a site like: www.pokerwonks.com, which is a shill, content stealing, ad fucking site that you would think Google would not want to send people to come up wayyyyyy before my own site is insane. So Google stop being fucking morons. I am totally looking for a new search engine since this one is broken. I used to love Google. I still want a search page that has no decoration and comes up in a second. This rules out a lot of sites like Yahoo! and MSN who have major content on their search pages. Oh well.

Et Tu Brute?

Waffles has almost no chance of winning his bet
-- Poker "Backstabber" Enthusiast from the Shadows



Ramblings of a Madman

I've only included "Waffles" for one reason. You should tag him as a fish and actively search him out on the tables. Full Tilt name is SirFWALGMan, go forth and take his money. His blog is worthless drivel full of nothing but senseless rants and the occasional World of Warcraft junk. Trust when I say you need to track him down on the poker table. Your bankroll with thank you. (He's actually a decent fellow with a penchant for tilt-based gambling.)
-- AlCantHang on Full Tilt "Poker from the Rails"


If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge? Betrayal on all sides! They are after me!!! Everyone is a hatah!!!!! If your going to flame me on Full Tilt at least get me a custom avatar for the deal. Nice Waffle House sign perhaps? Wow. My enemies are everywhere. What am I to do. Do you love Waffles?

A MTT Players Night AKA How I Donked into Third

Here are a few hands from last nights game. I have booked over $200 in prop bets and all betting is closed. I feel good that I made up about a third of the distance to first place in my first night. Eight more games to go.

9:54 … Waffles is all in on 653 flop against Surf and scoops a good size pot. He’s over 4,000 now.


Here I made a position play on Surf. He raised and I put him on some weak Ace. So when the flop came all low I jammed and he folded. This was purely a power poker play.

10:54 … HEE HAW…Money goes all in on a flop of 6s 5d Ts. Waffles has 86d and LJ has KK. Obv the turn is the 8c and Waffles doubles up to 10,000.


This is sort of the same play as I made against Surf but it went terribly wrong or right depending what side of the coin you are on. I called LJ's raise pre-flop. I really make the loose call because I have a lot of chips and the humor factor will be through the roof if I flop well. I was looking to flop something better than middle pair but I thought her range from second position could be something like AT-AKx, 22-AA.

I mean I felt she would have a semi-strong hand but not necessarily the AA or KK. She lead out on the flop for 2/3 the pot which seemed small to me for some reason. So I had to decide if she was c-betting with AK/AQ or if she had a hand. I am not calling here. I need to either fold or go all in and push her overcards out. I made the wrong decision but I went with it and instead of cold calling I tried to push her out of the pot. Obviously she is not going to fold KK there and I got extremely lucky. I am not going to apologize for the play. It was along the same lines of a successful play I made against Surf. Sometimes you make a mistake but as long as your playing hard you can do no wrong. It also lead to amusing tilty LJ comments all night which makes the play +EV in my book.

11:19 … MaggieO machine win pot. Machine river straight with 55 to crack Lucko’s AA. Machine has 30K.


I only highlight this hand because it was funny as hell. Sucko had been.. well.. sucking out on people with his gynormous stack. His sister then sucks out on him big time and he calls her a donkey. I of course was insulted by his mistreatment of his lovely sister so I had to defend her honor. I am chivalrous like that.

11:22 … Waffle’s KK stand up to lucko’s AJc and he’s doubled up to 31K. Lucko is left with 594 and all in on the next hand as is TheCloserX5. Waffles calls with AQo while TheCloser has QQ and Lucko 77. Ace on the flop and Wawfuls scoops it all. Final table.


Here my lucksackery really shows off. I smack down the other half of Suckos stack with my KK and then he puts his last 500 chips in. TheCloser decides to jam his remaining 5K. I figured with my large stack, mediocre hand, and all the dead money in the pot I should call. I end up catching my three outer to get rid of Sucko and TheCloser all in one shot. Woot Knockout Bonus!!!!

11:33 … Q68 flop and OSU goes all in and Waffles calls. KQo for OSU and TT for Waffles. Double up.


I pretty much knew I was beat here but I pulled a little bit of a Bayne and figured the pot was laying me the correct odds to call here. I am not sure I like Bayne anymore. People were really down on me for making calls like 5k more to win a 25k pot where I was likely behind but had like 30k left. I really do not think making math only calls are good.

11:57 … J Haze is all in on the the turn with the board showing A 6 9 Q. Waffles tanks but eventually calls with 98 which is good against J Haze’s J6. No river love and they are down to 6.


However here is another math only call where I assumed I was probably beat but it was only 3k more and I was priced in. My second pair is way ahead of third pair here and so the math call works out. I am so confused.

Finally OSU took me out in third. He played a good game tonight. I could not beat him and it was just his night to win. A few of the hands we played I may have been able to knock him off his hand pre-flop.. especially that TT hand.. but I am not sure..

Anyway the fact that people were screaming at me and calling me names all night must mean I played a great game. It is the only conclusion I can come up with. Keep sending the hate my way as it fuels me and makes me unstoppable. I have eight more games to make around $240 to take the lead assuming everything stays the same. Is any money going to shift to the other side? Is anyone going to put some money down on Waffles with odds? I am sure you will get plenty of takers. I really hope not though because the hate is good and I like it.

Tao of Holy Fucking Shit

In order to celebrate the Tao of Poker's fifth birthday, I'm throwing a private tournament on PokerStars with an interesting twist... the first place finisher will also win two nights at the Borgata Hotel & Spa in Atlantic City and they will also gain an entry into a $5,000 buy-in NL tournament during the Borgata Poker Open on September 12th.
-- Doctor Wonderful


WOW! What a nice thing for our favorite Dr. Pauly to do. He is putting up some big bucks for his birthday tourney. WOW! Nice prize for five bucks. Two things though.

First off does this include any face time with said Tao superstar or hot little girlfriend? Either one would be a big bonus.

Secondly. Can I borrow five bucks on Stars? Please Pauly. Cmon. I will pay you back. I have this great 1$ SNG scam it can not fail. Actually in all seriousness I do need to trade some funds with someone if I am going to do this. I am busto on Pokerstars at the moment. So if you want a few Full Tilt bucks for Stars let me know.

Here are the full details:

I'm not joking. $5,000 seat plus two nights in my favorite casino in Atlantic City. All you have to do is win the Tao of Poker birthday tournament. Entry is just $5. Tournament ID is #97513073. Tournament name is Tao Poker 5th B-Day.

Seriously. For $5 you get a chance at winning a $5,000 seat at the Borgata Poker Open plus two nights in the hotel. That tournament is on Friday, September 12th starting at 11am.

Here are the specific details...

1. Tao of Poker birthday tournament is open to all readers.
2. No chops whatsoever for the Borgata Package ($5,000 seat + two nights).
3. The 5K seat is a must play.... meaning you cannot take the cash. You have to play the event on September 12th.
4. Package does not include transportation. You have to find your own way to Atlantic City. So if you live in Sweden and win the seat, you are responsible for airfare.
5. Most importantly... have fun.

I should clarify something... there will be normal prize money. The Borgata Package is in addition to the regular prize pool. So the first place winner has a shot at a decent payday in addition to a $5,000 seat and two nights at the Borgata.

Sweet.

Still got nothing..

Boss talking to himself creepy.
Boss calling himself daddy very creepy.

He is the boss though. I guess if I can not be happy losing at poker since I am reformed I have to fall back on the old flame wars. Even this one is not going to be great but lets give it a shot. I started the Mookie way back when as a small group gathering and I am offended that LJ is on the top of the leader board. She is way too skilled at MTTs to be leading this thing.. although she may have the donkey quotient down to be a Mookie Leader I just do not think she captures the Surflexus type donkey that should be the King of all Mooks. So I have decided I will knock her off her perch. In the next few months I am going to play every single Mookie with the goal of becoming the leader board champion of this thing. Fuck I really need better goals if the best I can come up with is being the king of a pack of donkeys.

Ah well let the patheticness continue. Peace out. See you tonight.

Excited but not so much

Poker is blah right now for no particular reason. I am winning. I am bored. So I am taking breaks. Meh. I dunno.

I have been leveling my Mage up which is fun. Here are a few cool things I have done lately with him.

Base Jumping
In the Zangamarsh there is a HUGE tower platform where the Alliance have a city. I take my mage to the top of the cliff and look down. I can see creatures and people but they look like ants. I gather my courage and leap from the cliff, spreading my arms, and feeling the air rush through my Draenei tentacles. The ground quickly rushes up towards me and a few seconds before I hit I cast my blink spell and land safely on the ground. If I was a little too late I would have been a blue pancake. However I have successfully executed another daring base jump.

Playing with the Lowbies
Low level HORDE characters are so cute. After a raid where me and one other level 64 made it into the instance in Orgrimmar and proceeded to use gorilla raiding tactics to take out several guards and a few low to mid level characters that got in our way we headed back to the safety of Alliance lands. On our way back we ran into a tiny little cute level eight. He proceeded to attack my friend who is a level 64 priest. So naturally he mind controlled the little guy and sent him into a den of scorpions. The scorpions proceeded to sting him to death while we chuckled.

The little fellow then starts taunting us from behind the relative safety of a few level 65 guards. We destroy the guards but he is out of PVP mode. So my friend challenges him to a duel. When he accepts he is suddenly in PVP mode again. We quickly mind control him and make him attack a guard who hits him for 6k killing him instantly. Hilarious. Finally we charge out and rush through the Crossroads on our way back to friendly territory our epic two man raid on Orgrimmar a complete success.

I know I am a total nerd. Ah well.

Rantless in Boston

I know all you haters have been complaining about my blog lately but what can I say. It is hard to rant about losing a few bucks to Coxlover and his tired lucksackery when the bankroll is growing every night. It is pretty close to 2K which while no landmark is pretty good. Sure I got runner-runner sucked out on pretty good last night. I did my share of sucking too. I lasted one hand in the 4K PLO.. AA24 s000ted vs AKQJ no s000t all in preflop. Somehow all this winning takes the edge off. Worst thing that has happened lately at the tables is inadvertently hurting someone I really care a fuckload about by shooting my mouth off. I mean that is not even poker related.

Leveling my Mage has been the biggest grind. He is just under level 62. I am trying to get him to seventy fast but it is not easy. What do I have to rant about? I mean I sucked out bad on Kurokitty. Should I rant that some dude has the name "Kitty"? I mean what the fuck is up with that? As Fuel would say "Ghey".

Hell I even dropped $400 on Bodog which is almost my entire roll there. Do I care? Not really. I had a good time playing with Riggs. It was fun. Does that satiate you train watchers? No? FU Still Riggs.

There is just not much to rant about. You want to hear a really bad beat? Ok here goes. You know my Au Pair? The Fat whore from Venezuela or some McDonalds worker country like that. Yeah her. I just found out I am "PAYING FOR ALL HER FOOD!". Holy fuck! Talk about bad beats.

P.S. Dropping Hoyazo in four hands last night was the BEST HU experience I have had to date. It was classic. Hand Ranges? *snicker*. Calling all in with top pair SHIT kicker. *snicker*. Hoyazo. *snicker*.

SoxLover is a Lucksack

I have no idea how I lost to this guy. First I get him to commit his stack when I have a boat to his trips and he sucks out a tie. Then I get him all in on the flop when I have 16 outs 2x over. He had the powerhouse hand of Ace high two kicker. Um. Ok. I had a flush draw and two live cards. Finally I made a bad play putting my last 1k in with a SF draw vs his top pair shit kicker. Second there really sucked after getting pretty lucky all night. Oh well a winning night is a winning night.

LO8 Is Still Great

Still enjoying that game. Started off slow tonight. Then I picked up steam and scooped a bunch of pots to end up +2 Buyins. Sweet.

I also got really lucky in the cash game. I tried to make a play and well you decide if my play was ok.. and if the push was good by my opponent.. my final call was a mix between pot committed and fucking pissed off but I thought I laid down a good line... Did I just bluff the unbluffable? Ah well.

FU Riggs Al is the Man

AlCantHang convinced me to try a little LO8 last night. Also some book writing pro wrote about how easy these games are. I spend about an hour and made three buyins. It could have been better as I was up FOUR buyins for a while but I gave one back. Some interesting hands were where I scooped the HI with 55. Yes. You heard me. I had a nut low and a nut flush redraw. I was calling bets but not raising or going crazy with only one side locked and three people in the hand. My pair of fives held up as the Hi. If that is not a good game I do not know what is. I also took second in a $22 SNG.

One thing I noticed to be true is that even being a little loose can have a big effect. Making those marginal calls is not where the money is in this game. Sure you will give up some winning hands but it is better to bail early if the board does not hit you perfectly.

The suckouts are pretty brutal too. Like the AAAK hand vs AAAT with the fucking ten hitting on the river. Ouchie. However when you end up scooping like 8-10 hands in a split pot game you have to love it. Sure your nut straight on the turn is going to get run down when the board pairs and flushes on the river but that is alright.

I also have something to say to Hoyazo: "Baby Talk Baby Talk It's a Wonder you can Walk". Stop your whining you retard. Your sounding more like me every day. Fucking man up and quit your crying or I will come over there and smack you.

I plan on playing the Mookie tonight and doing at least a short buyin to the 1/2 deep stack game that Poker Gnome is putting on tonight. Which probably means that instead of a nice 3 buyin profit night I will probably blow some cash but it is all in fun. Really the only two MTT games I want to play lately are the Mookie and Riverfuckers.

I am not sure how much I want to play HU. On the the one hand it would be fun proving just how dominant I am against bloggers. What better way than humiliating them heads up? I mean it is perfect. On the other hand I really do not like HU MTT style games. I like 1-shot HU SNG format but not the whole beat the crap out of your opponent and then wait three hours until the other slowpokes finish. Ah well.

That is all.

FU

FU Riggstad.

Screw you too wifey. I know you think it is important to wake me up at 6AM to tell me that I printed off the wrong grocery list and did not get cat food but that makes me tired and cranky. Yes, more tired and cranky than usual.

Fun Weekend

I had a pretty good weekend. I went out and played some BBall with the boy. I guess I was inspired by Alan's finger. He beat me in both games. I think I won one shooting game. It took me a while to get the feel back so I could actually hit shots. I guess when your muscles atrophy due to lack of use it gets hard to get the ball over the rim. He thought it was hysterical when I put my hand in his face to block his shots. I did not try and swat his shots back into his face because well he is only nine. I did call him on his thousand double dribbles but did not make him give the ball back. I taught him a sweet defense move too. He is dribbling in and getting ready to take the shot when I rock out the loudest fart you have ever heard. He starts laughing so hard I steal the ball away from him and score. Perfect basket ball.

Congratz To Blogfather

Made it to Day Four and a 30k cash. I still feel like a big fat loser. - Iggy


The Blogfather in his own words and I could not have said it any better. Congratz on having such great self awareness because YOU ARE A BIG FAT LOOSER! Nice run anyways. Much better than I expected of you. I hope you got a lot of pictures because this is it.. as I said before.. the pinnacle of your short and uneventful poker career. I hope you got a lot of pictures because you will be sitting in your little My Little Pony rocking chair when your seventy (in a few years) and glancing at the mantle of your cardboard box in downtown Cincinnati and remembering the glory years. Congratz Napoleon this was your finest day.. here come the Russians.

P.S. This is what you get for having no comments.

Riverfucker OWNED

I won the RC tonight. Was kinda fun. I did not play well at all. My first great play was crippling Numbette with 72o. I was having a little fun with the hammer. I do believe calling a raise with AT and a flop jam on A2x flop is not going to be profitable in the long run for her.. but she was right this time. The TEN on the turn had me drawing to two outs.. and the TWO on the river.. well it was the Hammer.

My next brilliant move was against AlCantHang. He was short. I had a few chips. Some dude named N000bo who played TERRIBLE raises. I re-raise with TJ spades and Al jams for his last 2k. I had around 6k. So N0000b cold calls Al and so do I. The flop gives me two spades. The turn completes my flush and I jam the rest of my chips in and get called by N000b. That hand puts me up to like 15k and allows me to bully the table and have a good amount of chips on the final table.

The rest of the night was pretty good. Zeem got blinded out since he fell asleep. It was then down to Peacecorn, some Max guy who sucked, and I. The Max guy was nice but he criticized CK's all in jam when she had like 5-6BB and QJo. Pretty good jam just bad timing.

I took him out when he flat called my pre-flop raise of like half his stack with TJ spades, flopped the flush draw vs my TPTK and then stacked off to me on the draw.

Finally it was down to Peacecorn and I. I think she was tired. She finally jammed two big cards against my two which happened to dominated her. We were even stacked and somehow I held up. I am now the current Riverfuckers champion. I did it in true Riverfuckers style with some amazing suckouts and donkeriffic play. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Stupid Midget

[Asinine] What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Unless you're naked and you steal some beer... and a bus full of old people.

I told Iggy not to drink too much. He never listens to me.

Philosophy vs Reality

I often find myself caught up in the debates of the poker world that deep thinkers get into. For instance if you know for an absolute fact you are 51% ahead of the guy you are playing against and he jams all in for his entire stack do you call? Is there a better spot? Is this "Long Term" a real fucking thing? I mean if you have infinite bankroll and infinite time then yeah sure but in the real world is this enough of an edge for you to make back your loses? The most important question though: does any of this really fucking matter? I mean are these kinda of plays going to be what makes you a winner or loser long term? Should we dig into the bowels of poker and figure out what the right move is over time or just say "Fuck it" and just let the borderline plays slide off our backs. Who the fuck knows.

Iggy

You stupid fuck how the hell did you get to day three? Enjoy it while it lasts you midget fuck. This is the pinnacle of your short little pathetic life. You can shoot yourself when you get home. Good luck anyways.

Unethical

I was talking to a blogger after reading Pertecelli's post. Putting aside all the Donkette controversy and the "interesting" comments in response to his post.. Is it unethical to let your children play poker? Where and when does it become wrong or unethical? I have thought about this a lot with my kids. They are a little younger than I would like for Poker playing so I do not allow them to do so at this time. I do not really see a problem with it though. Except I wince when I say that. Why? I am not really sure. Upbringing. The reputation, some well deserved, of the "game" we play. The dark side of gambling in the form of uncontrolled addiction. What are some of your opinions? I know some of you bloggers let your kids play and I really have no problem with that. The blogger I was chatting with seemed to think the ethical line is at playing for money. Anyone have opinions on this subject?

** P.S. No PokerGrubs were hurt in the making of this post. Least I hope not. ;).

Stupid Blog

Man you guys are tough. It is really hard for me to entertain you when I AM NOT LOSING. I am sorry and apologize profusely for winning. Last night I booked a small win on Bodog. I was taken out of my SNG in third when I ran my QQ into this awesome players AT. Get yer ass over to that site. Two night of losing 30%'ers for a twenty dollar profit is not bad. I can not wait until my luck evens out and I see what I can really win.

Have you ever thrown a Candy Land game for your kids? I am kind of interested. Ok. Like I told you I AM NOT LOSING. SORRY! I AM REALLY SORRY! I CAN NOT AMUSE YOU! I would say you should send me like $500 and I could play 2/4 NLHE with it but I know it is not as amusing when it is not my own money. Jesus.

Who did you choose for the iceball to the face btw? I know you thought of that one person? Why did you choose them? *peeks around to make sure I am not being watched*. I chose this guy Joe. Fucking wants everything his own way and that way is WRONG. What a fucking retard. Arg! Anyway. Peace out. I will try and lose again for you.

I will be playing the Mookie tonight. Numbono winning that 11 person SNG called the MATH or something like that was the last straw. We have to stop him. Besides I am over being burned out on MTT play so I need to hit some of my favorites like the Mookie and Riverfuckers.

Let Me Explain

Let me explain the coolness that is World of Warcraft. Ok. Ready? Look around you. Yeah your at your boring cube monkey job or playing online games for a living in Vegas so take a look around. Now you see that guy. Yeah. That one. You know who I am talking about. Him. Possibly it is a her. You know the person though right? Would it not be so cool to slam an ice ball in his face? Till he dies? That is Warcraft.

Blah and Meh

Still Blahh with a little Meh mixed in. I got my Bodoggy account funded so decided to try her out last night. I lost the SNG I played in. Actually I think I played really well. I had a small 700 chip lead early. I then called a 3-way all in with top pair nut flush redraw. If I lose the hand I have 700 chips left.. if I win I have a huge lead. I worked my way back up to 2K. I then hurt myself and go down to 1500 on a semi-bluff. Really bad spot to do this. Finally I get all in with my remaining 1200, which was 2/3 the other guys stack, against his powerhouse AT. I had QQ. The flop did not disappoint. All in all it was a VERY easy game and I really easily could have won the whole thing. I think the semi-aggressive tack was good but c-betting and bluffing when the blinds get big against retards is not smart. If I made one less bluff I may have survived the QQ vs AT all in. Who knows.

Other than that I have been playing a bunch of Warcraft and working my ass off. My Mage is level 45 now. I took him raising Tauren Mill last night. In general this is a bad idea because it is a quick flight by bat from the Undercity and some level seventies could fly in and kick my ass. However I escaped without any damage and took out 5 guards, a couple of vendors, and 3-4 other players before getting bored and going to sleep. It is not as much fun when there is no retaliation. It is kind of fun when a lower level character gets too close and you frost bolt his ass into oblivion though.

It is sort of hard to level characters in WOW since they all converge into the same places and you end up doing the same quests over and over. I have been here and done this with my Hunter kind of thing. A Mage is a totally different beast though. He is all about short bursts of huge damage which is fun. He also has multiple ways to escape when the situation turns bad. Works out well for me.

Tonight I have to work again so not sure how much pokering I am going to get in. I do want to try out the cash tables. Supposedly they are pretty sweet.
