Scarmaker: ey dude :) (should I call you dude?) First of all, thanks a lot for taking part in this and GL to you :) Can you give us a rough case of how many MTTs have you played in your life?

vladopt: i Dudeoflige, how much money to make from online poker monthly?
March 13, 2013 19:13
just depends on what buyins you are playing. Pretty much impossible to give accurate answer to this.
BADDENIS: have often seen the final table bluff! How do you feel about that?
March 13, 2013 19:19
How do I feel about final table bluffs? I think the final table is when your bluffs have a higher chance of success because people are less likely to hero you down. People hate pressing the fold button but when you've been playing a tourney for 6 hrs, people don't like calling off there stack in a marginal spot.
it can be tough to fire that 3rd barrel, so it's about hand reading and asking yourself what the villain gets to the river with and what hands can he call with. Also, what does he think of my range.
tiltmyname: an you tell me your worst experience on online poker?: )
March 13, 2013 19:24
yes, when I got 12th in 1k WCOOP. It was like 6am and I was so tired. I played some of the best poker and then I shoved something like 25bb when the SB raised my blind when he really wasn't that active.
When you are so close to such a big score, and tiredness comes into play, it's really easy to just make a simple blunder. This loss stayed with me for a while and went on a pretty big downswing trying to hit it big again.
BADDENIS: ow much time you have reached the level of Professor? And with what? Books, games, or ...?
March 13, 2013 19:26
I'm 29 now, I started reading books when I was 12 about poker. Pretty much anything I could get my hands on. Then I experimented with all different types of games, sit and gos'/cash/Limit poker(lol)/PLO/before finally settling with MTT's.
Trki: hat would you suggest me to play with bankroll 500$ ? What MTT is very + EV and can u give me some tips how to play it?
March 13, 2013 19:27
I would say $5 tourneys and lower. 100 BI isn't ideal, but at micros, I think it is ok. Rebuys have the best value or tourneys with slow structure since you can be much more patient which most people are not good at online.
Scarmaker: hat is your best live poker experience ever? (I do not mean results-wise)

My best experience came during the $300 Venetian tourney that I won. I had a huge stack and we were just shy of the $. I was opening tons of hands and then I pick up 1010 and old guy 3 bets from the blinds. I call and flop is KKx. He fired 3 barrels with the last one putting me all in. I tanked for a while because it's not like old guy to just triple barrel for this huge but based on his body language I felt he was uncomfortable. Also, the fact that AA/QQ/JJ doesn't bet 3 times so I only lose to AK or Kx that 3 bet bluff pre. I called him down and he showed AQ.
and then same tourney, I come into FT being 2nd in chips and people are discussing deal like 8 handed or something absurd. I turned it down and then right after I made a huge blunder and was super short. I felt so low at that point and was pretty much sure I was gonna get 8th place. I shoved a bunch of times when I was short and thankfully no one called. Ended up doubling soon and then played some great poker to get heads up and then made deal.

Scarmaker: peaking of best poker experience, I meant smth like playing with your all time idol or visiting an unbelievable place or smth like that :)

ahh i see....I played with Jason Alexander(seinfeld TV star) in last years WSOP which was really cool. I'm a huge fan so was quite surprised when he had the seat next to me. Horrible poker player but really nice guy. As far as places, I qualifeid for EPT San Remo using my FPP points. The place we were staying at was a golf resort and the views were stunning from the cliffside. It was like a 30 minute ride up these steep hills and I thought we were gonna die because they weren't wide enough for 2 cars.
Scarmaker: tw, can you tell us a little more about how you reacted to black friday, what were the first weeks afterwards like and if you considered moving etc. ?
March 13, 2013 19:33
It was kind of like I knew this day would come, but was in disbelief when it actually did. I ended up going out with friends that night and getting really drunk because I didn't know what I was going to do(which is just really stupid and poor planing on my part). Moving wasn't an option for me because I was getting married soon otherwise I definitely would have. In the end, I think BF was in a way a good thing because I was obsessed with poker and needed a break.
BADDENIS: 2! Yes! I do MTT about 3 years! I think everything will be! Can meet at the table)! In the online game, you use the software for poker? If so, which ones?
March 13, 2013 19:39
I didn't use software because I felt it was too distracting when I had a bunch of tables up. Now, I realize that was a leak and I should've just gotten used to it. A lot of people use stats the wrong way since dynamics change so much from early/mid/late game but they can be used as a guide if you are readless.
ImSoooTilted: n early games of deepstack tournaments like SM SWU. what is your style approach? Is being TAG the way to go?
March 13, 2013 19:48
Yes, TAG is right for early stages. You can open lots of hands still from midposition/late that play well and come in for a minraise. I want to keep the pot small early on and minraising allows you the appearance of being active and allowing you to c-bet cheaply.
sisko: ell us what are the codes for coin flip? :)
March 13, 2013 19:49

alpyn: ay I ask you — do you like trains?
March 13, 2013 19:55
yes, living in Chicago, traffic is horrible and trains provide a reliable way to get from point A to B.
ImSoooTilted: see a lot of min 4 betting, 5 betting or even 6 betting alot in live or online ME events tournament with air. do you tend to do this a lot in these type of slow structured tournaments and are these type of plays more personal vs villian than actual poker involved?
March 13, 2013 19:56
In most live tourneys, you don't see that 4/5/x betting. There is some 3 betting, but typically people don't fold live since they like to see flops so your hand needs to have some value. Online, there are spots where you can 3 bet with any 2 cards because you are confident villain will either fold or shove. The ME is a special tourney because of the slow structure so you are right that stuff is mostly player dependent and it's basically a test of chicken.
BADDENIS: oker is your main activity? If so, how many tournaments play a day?
March 13, 2013 19:56
I now work full time and coach on the side.
