Place it here. Doubled up last weekend at harrahs at the poker table before I walked away. Give your non-sport experiences here. First hand was trip Ace's and I was too aggressive w/ it (bullied the pot). Give pro tips here.

hit on 12 against a dealer 2 every time, do it proudly, be confident, and if anyone at your table looks at you funny, remind them that you are an advantage player and that they are not.

Guys I went and played cards after work last night and had a great night at the table. For the hold em players, what is your favorite feeling you experience at the table? (Aside from the obvious winning a huge pot)
Is your favorite feeling successfully bluffing? Maybe check raising? Or perhaps playing a low pocket pair and hitting your set with an ace on board and some fool firing out in front of you?

I think for me, it's putting someone on a hand and then turning out to be correct.

I'm obsessed with diamond flushes. It gets me going. Poker is my game. For me, it's calculating the percentages in my head of what my chances are to win.

What's the most satisfying way of hitting your flush, wacky? Would you rather just boom, get 3 diamonds on the flop? Or do you like getting 2 and then either hit it on the turn or river? Or 1 on the flop and then runner runner?

Honestly, getting them right away is the most satisfying. I can relax and watch people over raise on their pair of Kings and call every single time and mess with them on a few raises. But you gotta play it very patiently so they'll blow their wad first.

Decided to get back into Low Stakes Live No Limit at the Casinos again at the beginning of April. I usually play one or two nights a week at KS Star, Mulvane or whatever casino I'm near at the time.

Cliffs:
Been playing poker a lot more recently. Been doing pretty good. Played a really, really, bad last night and lost a big pot.


Brag: Ran up $5,300 profits (including dealer tips, booze, food, etc.) in about 90 hours mostly playing 1/3 nl wit a little 1/2 when I was in Vegas. Started w/ initial $450.

Beat:
Lost biggest hand of the year (1/3) after I raise $25 from button pre w/ KTo over 4 limpers in straddled pot. 4 players see flop, including drunken gambooler old guy who has been running hot. We both have around $900 effective stacks. Flop ($105ish) comes 4cKh9c. Checks to villain in CO who bets $50. I see this as weak and either some 9x, TPWK hand, or flush draw. Instead of raising, I go passive and just call hoping jam villain's turn bet. All others fold.

Turn ($205) brings 10d, giving me two pair and completing a straight draw, which I'm not too worried about. Villain, instead of continuing smallish as he had done leads for $200. I'd planned on raising, but bigger bet through me for a loop. Range now looks more like two pairs, TPTK, Pair+draws, but includes sets, a miracle straight and frusterated club draw. With added showdown equity I elect again to just call rather than jam like originally planned.  :nono: 

River ($605) is just a terribad card for me. Jc. Straights and flushes abound and counterfits my two-pair against KJ, but convince myself there are still many hands in this villain's rainge that I can beat, including turning pairs+busted draws into bluffs, worse two pairs, etc. Villain has gotten increasingly drunk in the last 45 minutes or so. He looks at me and slurs "you gotta pair?" I  do this :dunno:. He mutters something under his breath then says "I'm just going all in." It's like $625. Because (wrongly) of what I've described earlier I convince myself to call. Terribly played the entire way by me.

Variance:
Villain hangs his head and slams cards on the table face up. Guy next to him says "two clubs." Villain looks up, looks at cards and rakes pot. I muck. He had 82cc. 

Villain staggers out 15 minutes later with all my chips.

They will spot you your double down on any splits and 8/9/10 double downs....downside is if the dealer gets 22, it's a push.  There is a side bet to protect against that.

Wow, black jack. What a fantastic game. Knew the concept as a kid, but just started playing for money. Learning how to read the dealer's hand, read the table, etc. has been my jam. Can't wait to go back, you guys.

Post by: stunted on October 22, 2015, 02:36:53 PM
if you have 250 and everyone has 600, effectively to you, everyone has 250. while they're playing a strategy for big stacks, if you play a game for short stacks, that has a built in advantage.

so you can take advantage and bully back. if it goes raise call call etc preflop, you could just go all in with 99+, AQ or AK (all depends on their position though), and either pick up all the dead money or flip for 250. or if people just call preflop, or it folds to you, make a raise with broadways and try to hit top pair.

That totals $3212 in winnings in the last 3 months, all for the honeymoon fund. However, instead of being happy about it, Ms wacky thinks I have a problem. Can you have a problem when you're on top, only go every other week, and only take $100 in? :dunno: I'm asking for a friend. TIA.

You can absolutely have a problem while still winning.

As far as you having a gambling problem, maybe but probably not. A good test is do you want to do "x" or do you need to do "x"? If you can be honest with yourself, that's when you need to take action

I definitely don't do that. I'm a numbers guy and feel like I can control the poker table. I never go out like I use to. What's risking $60 on a random Saturday night? Especially when I'm winning. It's a entertainment expense to me.

I can agree with that, also if you do online horse race betting where the races happen around the world you probably have a problem
I definitely don't do that. I'm a numbers guy and feel like I can control the poker table. I never go out like I use to. What's risking $60 on a random Saturday night? Especially when I'm winning. It's a entertainment expense to me.

I was giving a poster who started a thread like that a hard time.  I like gambling a lot, just never do it, mainly because it's 70 miles to the nearest casino

So I get In late last night from work and Ms wacky was already in bed. So I went to Harrah's and won $500 last night at the poker tables. That totals $3212 in winnings in the last 3 months, all for the honeymoon fund. However, instead of being happy about it, Ms wacky thinks I have a problem. Can you have a problem when you're on top, only go every other week, and only take $100 in? :dunno: I'm asking for a friend. TIA.

Title: Re: Combo-fanning gambling thread

So you've played roughly 39-40 hours total over the last three months?
Title: Re: Combo-fanning gambling thread
Post by: 420seriouscat69 on March 07, 2016, 08:39:41 AM
That might be a good estimate. 2-3 hours once every other week. I'd probably say 30. 3212/30= $107 an hour to play cards.
Title: Re: Combo-fanning gambling thread
Post by: 8manpick on March 07, 2016, 08:49:33 AM
I understand what nic is saying, but I feel like if you are looking at gambling in terms of your hourly rate of return, that is definitely gambling problem territory.

That's a sicko run either way. 10bb per hour ($30 per hour in 1/3 nl which I'm guessing you're playing) is considered superb long-term in low stakes live no limit.

It's not. If you're good, poker can be a money making side hobby just like anything else you might spend your time on. That isn't the case for most forms of gambling though. Poker is the only gambling/game anyone can expect to be a long-term winner at.

I'd warn Wacky that 30 hours is basically meaningless in terms of sample size though. He's definitely on the right side of variance. That doesn't mean he isn't or couldn't be a significant winner.

Her dad got taxed one time for having like a $1000 winning scratcher. She was in college and he gave it to her. They recently came back around and asked for the taxes on it like many years later. Very bizarre. That's why she's paranoid about it.

I've never played any game in a casino aside from craps and blackjack (and the sportsbook).  A hot craps table with a bunch of bros is tough to beat.

I'm gonna try and get out to for a weekend this fall, try my hand at some CFB sportsbook stuff.
