dynon07, what site do you do play at? what is your ID there? just curious. we should play some heads up nl ..any limit you want
teneight btw, i'm very serious
I dont play heads up much, it doesn' t suit my strategy.
I want to know what this strategy is.It's profitable, if we can believe you, and I trust that we can.But, you've demonstrated the ability to pi
ss on the concept of expected value, hand values, table texture and general concepts, so..let's hear it.
I referred to it before. I posted it in strategy under Play the List and Trust the Gut.The only time I pissed on these things is when I went to this room and just played tournament style poker, in an effort to acquire 500 back as quickly as possible. This is no way a reflection of my normal strategy and I made that clear time after time. Yeah I don't use the lingo, the EV, the anything. I play off intuition and good judgment. People that don't believe me fine, that's your opinion. I posted something that I openly deemed wrong. Then I get people saying they are sure people foam at the mouth when they see me?? Hardly, when I play normally I fire fire fire take huge and never give back cause I fold as soon as I lose leads of hands. These plays weren't even that bad, and for all you people that are falling in love so much with that 4 7 spades call, need some serious help. Glad that blatant heroism is so condoned in this place, what happened to that guy?? He busted of course, cause he tried the same stupid nonsense later and someone had it. The thing is, when I play normal I do have it, every single time, and these people pay me every single time. Thats how it works, cause its not a smart thing to fall behind in hands then call large bets when the board is gay. Sorry that doesn't come across as SKILL to me. Its retarded, passive people are not talented, they just have control issues and cannot fold, don't confuse this with skill. It's not. Not raising AJ, why.... I just sat down. I didn't want to raise to 80-100 which would be standard raise then get reraised... what do I do then? I was watching this room for 15-30 minutes before I entered and people were coming over the top of shortstacks with much much less. I decided to check the flop and see what happens. I dislike tournament style poker in cash games and people act much much differently in raised pots. Why counterfeit your ability to outplay people by going all in preflop??? My strength is my post flop judgment, and while some of you see my AJ limping as stupid and weak I disagree. When I play 2 /4 normally I fire, fire, fire and I can't be doing this with A 10 and such. My raises will mean nothing. When I see people raise AJ preflop I call with anything cause usually they overvalue hands and you can just put them to a tough decision on the flop. And finally for all of you who are so positive, so influenced by my 2 visits to 10/20 where I was playing shortstacked poker , that I am a terrible player. Download Prima Poker and watch Dynon07 play. I would bet my entire soul that even after an hour you would revoke all the negative things that have been said. If you watch me and analyze some hands I played and come to the conclusion "hey this guys still sux IMO he is a tight weak loser" then I will drop everything I am saying and just give up. I am not a bad player in any right, I played all my hands a lot more passively then usual but I was really trying to leave with close to 1000 so I didn't want to fly all in with AQ or AJ or something. I disagree with those plays."Lastly just because a person doesn't abbreviate every concept in poker, play according to the books every time, doesn't mean they are a terrible player. I have no doubts all of you commenting in this thread has a great deal of talent. You are surely far more versed in these concepts then I am. However , I did not learn to play poker from a book or a forum. I played and played and played and formed my own opinions. I came to some strong conclusions and one of them was my raising list, and it doesn't include AJ. This things became much more popular after I already came to many grand epiphanies about this game. I play this game to live, I make decent money per year off 1/2 and occassionally higher. You guys can hate and insult all you like, but come watch me play sometime you will change your mind. I am open to talk on AIM or whatever you want if you want to really get in depth. Anyway my name is Dynon07 , I have an account on all poker sites.And DrawingDead , when you give people advice you have to find the reason they want to play poker. Most people say duh...to make money, but its more complicated than that. Some people enjoy outplaying people, some people like fancy plays, some people like to grind , etc. I sacrificed some of my true talent to play a style that brings in consistent income. Raising AJ and A 10 brings variance so I decided against it. Some hands I know I am ahead but I just fold anyway, its not worth heroing someone with low pair and losing 200 cause they hit. I choose to lead the hands I win, thats how I play and I am hardly ever in a calling situation. Most people can't play this strategy cause they don't have enough discipline, cause you have to be really patient. Online poker nowadays is a giant pride measuring contest. People are trying to outplay each other every hand and they wanna call giant bets with Ace high. Whatever thats not for me, I attacked weak players with giant bets in situations where I am positive they can not fold. If I do not get outdrawn, I always win, always. Thats the bottom line. Days that I lose money I am not playing with all my skill. I always play till I make money, so that is why my session win rate is high. I either lose a huge deal cause I couldn't get it back and go to bed or I play until I am even. I had a great deal of confidence in my skill, and all players that do should always play till they win. You will if you don't get outdrawn. Ever since the beginning I've been trying to give more credit to people for different strategies and I've come along way. If people do things that I don't normally agree with but justify them, fine good for them thats fine. I play this game to always win money and put food on the table, so I can't be playing fancy make moves poker. Yeah I am a hypocrite for what I did the last 2 nights, but hey everyone makes mistakes and I know it wasn't the best choice. Now I look back in hindsight and realize how ridiculous it was and I will work to make sure it doesn't happen again until I have the proper bankroll. I just posted the experience cause I thought it was interesting. I didn't mean for everyone to get so hateful and bring massive amounts of negativity to the thread.
