So what?

The question you are asking is that of someone grinding $5 games who thinks they will become a pro.

You can be worth millions and match the best players bankrolls, but it isn't about that. It is about matching their ability so what I meant by playing $50 games is you are playing out of your depth. I could be wrong, it was the middle of the night and I was commenting in a pointless thread due to boredom.

You might have qualified for all that but... how much have you lost?

STFU.

That is me being a prick.

I wasn't with my previous comment. Either was Caf. What are you on about?

Actually it doesn't matter.

By that reasoning games like Celtic Poker Tour games @ 120 buy ins should be out of my depth?
I'm playing on and off online for about a year and a half.. Have no disillusions about EVER becoming a pro.. I have a good career and am doing alright for myself..
I enjoy the game of poker and see it as a passtime where potentially I may get lucky and run good sometimes..
I am the first to admit I am not making a steady income on poker and I am running at a loss, no doubt I am..
But, for me it's a HOBBY
Posting on here was never meant to start an avalanche of people telling me how inept at poker I am..
Thats my last post on this.

Oh dear...

A CPT game wouldn't be near the standard of this one, more like a $5 or $10 online game.
It doesn't matter what you work at, how much money you have, or anything else, it's much better to shove or fold with a <20bb stack in this spot(SB v BB).
TBH, I genuinely thought you were taking the piss, I mean how could you not be? You flop the world and want to fold? Methinks Flushdraw is spot on, it's just a bad beat and you're focusing on the result way too much. You don't need to worry about it though, only that you're getting the most out of how you play, this entire hand is a preflop decision, so just stop concentrating on the post flop play...you shouldn't get there in the same away again if you've taken anything out of this thread.

As for your 'last post on this,' that's up to you. You'll pick up a lot here the more you post and definitely the perfect spot for someone playing as a hobby to improve their game, just grow a thicker skin. Nobody's insulted your family here, it's only a single hand of poker after all.

I meant last post on this thread..
I never had any intention of folding.. Never could/would find a lay down there.. I just asked if anyone could.. I was so sick at the end of the hand
I do learn from the sections on here but just feel there could be less patronisation and looking down on others posts..
Cheers

Never a waste of time to see what goes on inside the heads of some sample size of your opponents IMO

Smart man..
Glorified Gamblers on here,with vamped up opinions of themselves.. Putting down people who have a question that have the stupidness to think there are people with manners and normal social skills to answer in a mannerly fashion.. 90% of dickheads on here with these superiority complexes will end up in the gutter without a pot to piss in..
Enjoy your superiority on a forum like this because sure as hell you ain't functioning outside your cyber world

Not referring to Winning as in the 90% of the bracket of people with glorified opinions.. Have learnt a lot from the posts from said person but know that sarcasm is rife on here and beginners are not welcome.. Slan leat IPB

I'm folding here mate. Yea we have a nice hand but, lets be honest, its not the absolute meganuts and villain can still have us beat here. Just let it go. We will have 8.5BB left so still plenty left to make a few moves.
