First off no softball update. Lucky you.
Last night I ran into god himself playing 50HU. If you are curious god lives in argentina making $400/month.
Anyways. This guy was running me over he was probably one of the top 3 worst players Ive played in the last month but he was running super hot. At one point he had $475 in front of him and he bought in for $50. I made a couple bad plays but in all honesty I wasnt tilting.
I want to stress to anyone who reads this. BE NICE TO THE FISH. This guy was chatting it up and I was being as nice to him as I could. Where this came in handy. He sits out and says gg $425 infront of him and 200bb deep at this point. I say â€œjust so you know its common curtisey to give a 15 min warning if you are up big on someone. I personally dont care too much but some people may get really pissed at you.â€ He said â€œwell since you have been nice Ill give you 10 more min but I have to go to work in 15. Iâ€™ll remember to give a warning next time.â€
10 min later Im sitting w/ $375 infront of me and looking at a 3bi loss instead of a 9bi loss. All because I was simply being nice to him.
So last night I went on the massive grind. Started w/ a 9bi downswing (was stopping at 10bi fwiw) against god and ended up down 1.5bi 3.5 hours latter.
Even though I lost a little last night the massive comeback w/o feeling like Im monkey tilting was probably one of the biggest accomplishments I have had in poker.
GL to everyone.
