Brick,

Without an ability to avoid tilt, you are dead in Commerce games at any level. You really have to be able to look at the 72o that cold called 4 pf and hit runner runner 2 pair and say "nice hand sir".

BTW, those guys 3 betting don't have jack. The favorite play of donkey asian players in Commerce $20-40 is to 3 bet TAG pf raisers in 4 way pots with like 44.

I usually do pretty well until it happens 6 times in a row.

I just skimmed your problem-posts and here's my 2 cents:

Once a player achieves a certain level of technical skill the most important thing he MUST do is maintain emotional control. If he can't he shouldn't play. It sounds like maybe the Cali games might not be for you. How about coming back to Phoenix or go up to LV? The games up in LV play a bit more 'sanely' and the games in Phoenix are not quite up to the LA craziness. Maybe it would be better for you.

Also: Players tend to bash themselves about their mistakes and how much they cost themselves and start adding up what their win would be for the year if they didn't make them and come up with something like 'I'd be driving a Benz if it wasn't for these damn bad plays' but I don't think they're as bad as many of us think they are. We also make money when we make mistakes and it tends to even things out to a degree. I know that I make plenty of bone-head plays that end up winning big pots and while they probably don't quite make up for the bone-head plays that lose me some money they DO reduce their effect. My point: It's probably not as big a leak as you think and it's possible that it's just that you're in a game you're not prepared for.

I've never had my own graph before. This is since the start of the weekend. I'm hoping to have a +$6,000 month. I'm playing 10/20 Limit (live), usually about 4 hours a day. Is this a realistic goal?

not realistic goal imo, possible but not plausible... 2.5bb/hr is sick hot for live cards... i'd try 3k or 4k for the month if you are playing 100-150 hrs, but i also think monetary goals are incorrect measure with variance and such - gluck though

I thought so. I must run crazy good because the last 3 months I've averaged 3.7BB per hour.

Ahh well I'll let you know how I go.

Howard/Garland/J-Dub,
Good to meet you guys along the trip. Thanks for your constructive feedback. I'm going to move down for a while and take occasional shots at 20/40.

I've already won 64BB today playing 25cent/50cent 6 max!!
plus I'm going to vegas next week so I can't give up yet.

Thankfully was quickly moved to super awesome table featuring a donkey tournament player who thought he was really good and The Mongoose, whom I love and adore even if he did send off from my table once with "Y'all can kiss my black ass".

Any table The Mongoose(refers to himself in the third person) is at is guaranteed to be super awesome. When he runs bad, he spews chips like no other. When he runs good, he is super awesome at tilting entire tables. He can rake pot after pot from me with 26 for all I care. He is awesome.

Tournament donkey berates The Mongoose for playing said 26o. I empathize with The Mongoose but do not interject into the conversation as clearly The Mongoose is a grown man and can handle himself. His final statement of the conversation is "The Mongoose kills cobras".

Said tournament donkey proceeds to win the min against my A [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img]A [img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] on an all heart flop where he flops the flush with 10[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]7[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], played UTG 2 hands after berating The Mongoose, by failing to c/r me on any street and instead taking the horrible awful line of c/c, donk, donk.

A couple of poker feats:

Was in the game sternroolz mentions above and Mongoose and his wife managed to get all in, together on the same hand, 3 separate times. That's one heck of a marriage. By the way, 5 minutes after Mongoose took some heat about the 62o (he explained that unlike 92o you could make a straight out of it), he face up mucked a straight on the river in a huge 3-way pot becuase "i've got no luck with the bottom end of a straight". His hand was good. By the way, i wasn't the T7s donkey because i'm way too much of a nit to play T7s anywhere, though i am a donkey.

In what may be a first, i played lhe at the Commerce and at the Crown Casino (Melbourne, Australia) in the same "day", separated only by a 16hr flight and nothing else. Unfortunately biggest game they had was 10/20, but if the 20/40 goes regularly, it might be worth the flight. Fat rake there, but no dealer tipping.

Bah, guess im forgettable, or else it wasn't nice meeting me. Just had a very very good turn of events the last 2 days. I was drinking heavily and watching the ASU game yesterday, and had 5k in my wallet all ready to burn it in a 40/80 or 60/120 game, but didn't get a ride, and passed out instead. Then I won about 60bbs in a 20/40 game today in 10 hours...and played AA amazingly against Howard, although he doesn't like my 'change up' play. Maybe he will think twice when value betting next time.
