Does anyone here gamble? I am pursuing it as a full time job now. I've made 1000+ on Craps here recently. I'm only a beginner. Dice Setting is fascinating to me, but not as fascinating as being able to be self employed and working on the weekends. I also gamble online with Poker. However, I haven't been doing so well. I need to read some more. Regardless, the reason I am posting this is because of something I've come across.

People hate seeing other people making their money with unconventional methods.

All my friends think I'm going to lose all my money and my car. I would think they would support my endeavor. Truth is, they don't. If you ask Asemi, I always text him how much I win. And it's quite a bit. I never cash out with less than 200. Either way, I highly suggest you guys take up the game of craps. It's lucrative.

the only gambling i will EVER do is live poker. Its the only game were you can stack the odds of winning in the long run in your favor. every other game to me is pointless. I have played quite a bit of poker in casinos in my short time of being able to play there and have learned a lot. In limit i can almost always come out with $50-$100 in winnings given enough time and patience. No limit im not as good at in casinos. Only played 3 or 4 and even those were terrible games since i just waited till all the old people were drunk and took down some good pots.

Don't Let Your Walls Down
yeah, most games in montana are limit because by state law pots can only reach $300 max i think. There are no limit games but they are usually a buy in of $60 so that no one really gets bullied from the get go and to keep the pots small.

this game in butte is in a casino so thats what makes it kind of unique. usually all the casinos are real strict about the pot limit but they just dont give a shit at this game. a guy at the casino was tellin me about how he pulled down a $2,000 pot one night and my boss at fedex was tellin me he's walked away with 1,400-2,000 after buyin in for about $400.

I played alot of 3 card and like normal I like to put some money down from time to time :) I put 30 bucks down and hit a straight and later i put 100 twice first I hit nothing and the second time I got a pair for 1 to 1. At this point I was only down like 75 for the weekend. My buddy told the dealer to go tell the pit boss that I sexually assaulted him so I would get kicked out and keep my money! Our dealer was pretty pimp

Speaking of Gambling,

I have actually met a RakeBack requirement that allows me to play in a private tournament where ... well lets just say more than money is at stake.

The name of this tournament is the $12k World Poker Tour Turks and Caicos Final. Here is what is at stake.

The prize package includes:

- Entry to the WPT Turks & Caicos main event, which takes place between September 25-30. (Value: $7500+$200)

- 7 nights accomodation at Club Med, Turquoise, from September 24th to October 1st. If your name is MrTimCaum this'll be changed to September 24th to September 25th.

- $1800 Cash paid directly into your Cake account for travel costs.


As you can see , this is no ordinary run of the mill type tournament. I would love TTF to sweat me, or for you folks unfamiliar with poker slang, cheer me on. You can download Cake Poker client and just observe. I'll do my best to Represent TTF.

I went to a home game tournament, of which I just returned home from, tonight. It was something else. I have REALLY improved my Tournament Game. I finished first place. Final hand:


3000/6000 blinds + 500 ante

Hole Cards [ 2d , 4d]
Villain Calls
Gatzby Checks
Flop [8d, Jh, 2c]
Gatzby: All In!
Villain: Calls ...
Gatzby Shows: Pair of Dueces
Villain Shows: Ac Kc
Turn: [ Js ]
River: [ 8c ]


And we rejoice! 2nd place took $135. I took home $215. Hopefully this will carry over into my tourney tomorrow. That was one sick ass call. I knew I had him beat.

not really, I mean I've always kind of suspected that if someone was going to cheat, that it would pan out somehow like that.

some inside guy telling some outside guy who has what and what cards will come. not like many people thought it would go down, with the company rigging the flops or something of that sort.

Yes. I don't play on Absolute, and I never will. The fact of the matter is that this company was already known for having terrible support. A Superuser account would never have come into the public's awareness if it wasn't for my main man Adanthar(Adar) on the PITR(Poker in the Rear) SA Forums. That guy owns like 7% of Cake Poker. We owe him, as well as the hacker who ran the correct SQL query to break Absolute. I play on Bodog, Cake, and Full Tilt and I will never consider playing on Absolute.

On to other gambling matters:

I tried Bodog Live today and I must admit, that shit is exciting. After a crappy night of poker, I decided to place a $100 bet on the Red Sox. So far so good. Sox are going to take it. This is a straight up bet, no cover spread to beat.

I HATE ABOSULTE/UB !!!

So I get an email while I'm at work(which is another story that my coworker caught me in) that catches my eye. It's from Ultimate Bet. A long time ago I deposited $50 in there and subsequently lost it due to its HORRIBLE interface. Anyways, Ultimate Bet is owned by Absolute Poker, which has come under fire recently. Anyways, the point is I avoid this place like I avoid herpes. Here is the email:

http://www.davidontiveros.com/Images/Screensh … /bonus.png

So I figure what the hell, I mean it's only $10 no obligation. I sit down at a table and I have nothing but donks. Here is where I think I am greatly improving my game. I make some cash here and then go sit at a Pot Limit Heads Up Table with one really idiotic player.

Note: I use my entire bankroll and it's half a min-buy. Do the math to figure out what I have at this point. A buy in is 100 * BB(Big Blind). The blinds are 0.25/0.50.

So anyways I sit down, and I'm in the zone. I leave with this.

http://www.davidontiveros.com/Images/Screensh … ungood.png

I'm pretty sure a shitload of bonuses went out to coax people to play. But this is awesome. Remember no deposit required. That's the gambool of the day.

I walk out of the house at 7:30 am, drunk as shit and $200 in cash. after giving the guy who came in second a good $60, I still have $140, not bad for a $10 buy in.

A nice morning in so far. I loaded up Bodog again and decided to buy into a tourney for $4.50. I also bought in to a NL 25 table while playing the tournament. I was losing some cash when this hand decided to go in my favor:

http://www.pokerhand.org/?1633896

So after this, I decide to focus on the tournament. I'm already up 10 bucks for the day, so why bother to be greedy. With some good play, I manage to avoid the rising blinds(seems I joined a super turbo SnG) and manage to get in Heads Up. I can't seem to seal the deal with people sucking out on the River. Oh well. I got second(which is still good). And here is the last hand notive I had 8 outs:

Note: I'm almost 100 dollars up on my original investment. As soon as I get 300 up, I'm requesting a cash out of my original 150. I completely forgot I still have 136 at UB. Man, it's been an awesome week. With wins like this, I'm going to start betting on Backgammon as well.

I just hate the structure. 1/2 limit sucks. 3/6/12 seems ok. It's a profitable game, but feels like a Grind. Took some horrible beats and was down to 225. I seem to have stabilized around 250 or so. I'm working on 300.

thats all limit is.......a grind. you gotta be a fines player and play consistent. no style change needed. I can easily play a limit game, whether it be 3-6, 2-8 or whatever, for 10+ hours and come out ahead every time.

I could never play a no limit game for that amount of time. the swings are so rediculous and I would probably get so frustrated trying to read people that I would blow it all on a couple huge hands.

well didn't go quite as planned. though for my first time playing in a casino in over a year and a half i cant be to disappointed. went for 5 1/2 hours on one $100 buy in. my highest stack was $650 but for the majority of the game i stayed pretty level at about $300. there are a few things I've got to work on before I will be able to bring down some decent money playing poker again like learning when to change my styles. when i got up i had a tendency to bully to long or not know when to stop chasing. cost me quite a bit.

the play that broke me for good was one i never should have played and i made a horrible read. i hadn't gotten a decent hand for almost an hour and i finally get a QJ off in 8th position. the blinds were $1-$2 so i raised $15 to $17. I get the small and big blinds to call. Flop comes K-J-7. It checks around to me so I throw out another $15. Small blind has a small hesitation, looks at own cards and finally calls. Big blind stalls for a good 5 minutes then finally calls . I took these as a sign that they had pretty weak hands and were maybe trying to draw a straight or had low pocket pair. the turn comes another 7. they again check around to me. This time I throw $75 out. The small and big hesitate again and then finally call. River comes Q. So I've made a better two pair than before, I bet $100 after it checks around to me. The small blind raises me 50, the big blind re-raises another 50. I was so confused at this betting that I just called the extra $100. small blind turns over A-10, so he made his straight, and the Big blind turns over K-K for a full boat.

anyways im hooked again and will probably be back tuesday night playing some no limit.

So i just got back from a poker game where i witnessed the most amazing beginners luck in existence. so after getting off work at about roughly 1:30 we go to my bosses house and play some poker on friday nights. well this friday we had two new commers to a game with 5 guys who regularily play in casinos and tournaments. well one of these new guys hit the craziest strings of winnings i've ever seen. he played every hand to the river, literally, and won the $400 dollar pot. it was a $10 buy in with unlimited buy ins. I bought in once while he bought in 5 different times. That one buy in lasted me the entire game and I came in second but still, that is the most fucked up shit i've ever seen. I got beat by him playing a 10-3 off suite to the river and catching a full boat with my A-10 which had him beat till the last 3 came on the river. like wtf. its official i hate playing with newbs and will never to it again.

Chiken,

Don't be discouraged! You should be glad you play in such a fishy game! You would rape his ass in a cash game. However, I have been reading Theory of Poker and its going to seem as if you are getting sucked out on a lot more. Reason being is that when you get your money/chips into the pot, you will most likely be ahead a significant percentage of the time. Hence, it will SEEM as if you are getting bad beated more frequently.

On another note, that is one pretty sick ass beat. Check this out. One time I was at a cash game in Houston when this guy flopped a boat. However, the boat was disguised to where a guy managed to limp in with a HUGELY MARGINAL hand(Close to your 10-3). One dude goes all in, the guy with the boat calls. And here is what happened:


villain shows his boat
hero shows weak PP (4,4)

Turn: 4
River: 4

... ain't that some shit.

Holy shit ... Crazy shit that happens in Tournies.

Here is a hand that crippled me:

Well fuckin bodog hand histories suck. I am going to write a converter. But still here is the synopsis. I had A8o

Flop All hearts(spiked an Ace)

I went all in,

Guy called

Guy shows Kh 8c

Turn is a K
River is a K

WTF!!!! Damn ... bad beat. Oh well.

So this crippled me to about 600

I shoved for 3 hands to get me to about 800 chips. Then I get this hand.

AQh

All in preflop

Hero shows 88o

Spike an A on the flop
Q on the Turn
Avoid the 8 on the river.

I'm on break now ... Currently there are 176 people left. It's time to open up the game.
DaGr8Gatzby's avatar

DaGr8Gatzby

Fuck I'm out ....

As10c > QdQh

Flop: 10d 6s 8d
Turn: 10h
River: 9h

Hero wins Gatzby's stack for the night.

Let's break this down by the percentages. You can see that I'm a clear favorite here. According to Cardplayer's odds calculator, here are the odds:

Preflop:
Villian = 28.76%
Gatzby = 70.93%

Note - This does not add up to 100 because there is a case of a tie. In this case the tie percentage was .31%

Flop:
Villain = 19.29
Gatzby = 79.19

Turn:
Villain = 95.45
Gatzby = 4.55

Well, since I'm a little strapped for cash(Not really, but i am damn focused on paying off my car), I went ahead and cashed out all sites, and left 100 on Full Tilt Poker. I heard there are some SnG's where the blinds increase every 3 minutes.

....

These games are soft. REALLY soft. I really think everyone needs to get in on this. People aren't used to push/fold poker. Trust me. These are highly profitable. I was able to get my sister's bankroll back playing a couple of 11 dollar tourneys. so far I'm up 25 bucks. We'll see how I am at the end of the week.

Don't Let Your Walls Down
nice dude. i play on full tilt mainly, but a buddy of mine is bugging me non stop to get poker stars so here in a couple days i probably will once i get my paycheck.

got talked into goin down to a casino tonight to play some limit. and man was it some fucked up limit. $1-$5 with a big blind at $2 no small blind. oh and when it was heads up you didn't have to go by the $1-$5 you could play like it was a no limit game. was doin good until the shots started rollin, finished the night at $10 up.

Ok ... my run good on Cake Poker continues. I managed to get the bankroll up to 160. Then I lost 30 bucks on a top pair vs. flopped straight to this guy. So of course i am on tilt and decide to sit at this table. Best choice ever ...

Enjoy ... Also, pimped this one guy to get 10 of his bucks, plus got another 10 bucks from a bonus I have YET to clear. So all in all, it was a good day.

I'm on a mac, I use Snapz Pro. On Windows, I would use Camtasia Studio. Just grab it off a torrent to try it out. Buy it later if you intend to use it for a long time.

Just depositing 500 on Pokerstars. I'm going to make this one stick. I was on a huge downswing as I'm down to 363 now. But I seem to be getting back into the groove.

So I was up to 315, did shitty, and dropped down to 275. Then I started multitabling 4 SnG's. That worked out pretty well. I'm gonna do this from now on.

Wow it's been a while since I last updated this. Deposited 100 and was able to double it in 30 days. I'm gonna see if I can sustain this win rate.

thats pretty damn good but after a while i think it would be hard to sustain that kind of win rate.

I haven't played in forever. I still have around $70 on my full tilt account but haven't installed full tilt on my new 7 install.

i'm at my best when i play bigger tournaments. the slower pace allows me time to adjust my game, i just can't seem to consistantly adjust to the faster paced games, and it costs me money.

It is a beast. If you learn short-handed play early, you will be unstoppable later on. I also don't dig full ring. I'm more of a 6-max kind of guy.

i really can't wait to have a steady income again so that i can play. right now i just can't justify throwing down $100 to start a new bank roll when i've got so many other expenses.

So I have an interesting predicament here. Pokerstars has a SnG leaderboard and it appears I'm well on the way to being at least in the top 20.

Leaderboard:

And here is where I am at:

I have one more tourney to play. I need to make it could and MAYBE I can bump myself up a few places.

31st place. But hey it's a start! I would have had a lot more points but I bubbled on my last SnG. Here was the hand:

Lol. This is OLD school. Full Tilt, Pokerstars, and Absolute Poker are "down". Department of Justice had been building a case against them, not for providing a online poker presence in the states, but for money laundering.

... and yes this is fucking killing me. Killing me like my fucking Linear Algebra class.

I put 100 dollars on Carbon poker and in one day ran it up to 200. I'm basically treating it like Play Money.
