Still Running Gooooood

4th final table of last 5 BBT3 events. Waffles will soon be overtaken for April $2k seat.

Key is not good cards but people making terrible plays against allowing a big stack to amass.

And a recap from yesterday:
Read was PirateLawyer was being a stealy bitch from SB, read was air, and he weakly folded a boat to Ace high on the river.

During MATH PirateLawyer was pwned for a large pot and folded a boat on river.
Tomorrow will show what he folded against.

The Blonkaments and the BBT

I am an egomaniac. I'm a pompous ass. It's like my defining characteristic.

MATH tonight, 10 pm Eastern, password: Hammer

8 out of the last 12 months our private blogger-hosted tournaments have been part of the week-to-week competition of the BBT. This sucks and takes away from the spirit of blogger games.

BBT Chops

I, Hoyazo, have single handedly ruined poker bloggery and turned it into the drivel that it has become today.

I have done something to bloggers, to blogging, to Poker, ruining the spirit of our games.

One thing is clear. Some people have clearly lost their way and are completely missing the spirit of the BBT and the private blogger tournaments. I guess the exact identity of those people we can disagree on.

"I definitely believe the Tournament of Champions is more interesting and just better with me in it."

"Even if my BBT3 "win" was really just handed to me wrongly. Muhahahahahahahahahahah!"

Ring Turbo SNG Strategy -- Part 1

If MY STRATEGY does not work for you all money for class will be refunded, don't come crying to me about your actual losses in Turbo SNGs.

Play tighter than normal MTT game early.
If you are in lower part of raising range for position and get reraised fold.
3x BB bet is raise until you are down to 10x BB stack.

When down to 5x BB jamming range opens up. Late postion ATC open jams.

Part 2 Friday due to lengthy post about 1st glorious victory in Mookie.

MATH Recap, and One Thing I Love About Poker

Congrats to PokahDave for taking down the MATH.

My name is Hoy and I am a masochist. It's why I love poker.

Keeping It Real With the BBT3

Chat obnoxiousness is at acceptable levels.

Play in non NLHE events has improved from god awful to merely copious levels of donkery.

But people are improving and this is good.

There are still donkeycalls on flop with AJ unimproved in NLHE but for the most part people are taking it seriously.

Booooooooooms! are stupid. But they are not rude.

Variance happens and being the one currently running badly leads to greater sensitivity, periods of running bad are part of game.
