Full Tilt

FullTilt casino bug

Hello gents! I recently played a new FullTilt slot game called "Fortunes of Sparta" and after couple of minutes I got bonus game (free spins) which gave me like ~16$ at the end. However, when the screen come back to resume normal play I hit the spin button and got some kind of error which closed the game without money on my ac. I sent them mail, and they said that they would forward to their slots developers I that i should just wait (It was 4 days ago).
I was wondering did anyone experienced something similar?

Remember the Vegas casino merging with PokerStars? Apparently it may be responsible for bringing ringleaders into the light. FBI seized PS, FullTilt, and AbsoluteBet with a 3Billion dollar claim. Of course we're the US so we're screwing people in other countries as well

ต้นกำเนิด โป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์

โป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์ ได้ถือกำเนิดขึ้นมาได้หลายสิบปีแล้ว โดยสิ่งที่ทำให้เกมไพ่อย่างโป๊กเกอร์บูมขึ้นมาได้ตลอดช่วง 10 ปีที่ผ่านมานี้ก็เพราะโป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์นี่แหละ ด้วยความที่สะดวกและใช้งานง่าย ขอแค่มีคอมสักเครื่องกับอินเทอร์เน็ตก็สามารถเข้ามาสัมผัสความตื่นเต้นของโป๊กเกอร์ได้แล้ว
กำเนิด โป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์
ในช่วงกลางๆของยุค 2533 เป็นช่วงที่อุตสาหกรรมการพนันออนไลน์ได้เริ่มต้นขึ้น ซึ่งช่วงนี้แหละที่โป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์ได้ถือกำเนิดขึ้นเป็นครั้งแรก โดยจะเล่นกันผ่านห้องแชทในอินเทอร์เน็ต(IRC) ส่วนใหญ่ก็จะมีเฉพาะพวกที่เก่งๆเทคโนโลยีในยุคนั้นเล่นกัน และเนื่องจากเป็นการเล่นผ่านห้องแชท ทำให้ไม่มีซอฟต์แวร์อำนวยความสะดวกในการเก็บเงินหรือโอนย้ายเงินของผู้เล่นอัติโนมัติเหมือนอย่างทุกวันนี้ ผู้เล่นต้องอาศัยความเชื่อใจกันในการลงเงินกันอย่างเดียว
Hand แรกของโป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์ที่ใช้เงินจริงเกิดขึ้นเมื่อวันที่ 1 มกราคม 2541 บนซอฟต์แวร์ที่ชื่อว่า Planet Poker ซึ่งได้รับความนิยมเพิ่มขึ้นอย่างมากภายหลังการเปิดตัว โดยตัวซอฟต์แวร์ยังได้นักโป๊กเกอร์ชื่อดังในยุคนั้นอย่าง ไมค์ แคโร (Mike Caro) มารับรองให้อีกด้วย และด้วยความที่ยังใหม่และเป็นเจ้าเดียวในตลาด จึงมีปัญหาอย่างระบบล่มบ้างและทำให้ผู้คนที่นอกจากจะหัวร้อนจากการเสียไพ่ยังต้องมาหัวร้อนกับตัวซอฟต์แวร์อีก

ซอฟต์แวร์โป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์
จนมาในปี 2542 เว็บไซต์โป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์เงินจริงชื่อดังอย่าง Paradise Poker ก็ได้เข้ามาเปลี่ยนหน้าประวัติศาสตร์ของโป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์ โดยการพัฒนาซอฟต์แวร์ให้ดีขึ้นพร้อมกับมีเกมโป๊กเกอร์ให้เลือกเล่นถึง 3 รูปแบบ แทนที่จะเป็นรูปแบบ Texas Hold’em อย่างเดียว ซึ่งทำให้ยอดผู้ใช้งานนำ Planet Poker ไปไกลลิบ
ซึ่งในขณะนั้น ตัว Planet Poker เองก็ได้มีปัญหาด้านความปลอดภัย โดยตัวซอฟต์แวร์ถูกมือดีแฮ็คจนทำให้มีบางคนสามารถเดาได้ว่าไพ่ที่จะออกมาใบต่อไปคือไพ่อะไรและเป็นเหตุให้สูญเสียความน่าเชื่อถือ ส่วนผู้เล่นที่หมดความเชื่อถือต่อเว็บเลยย้ายไปเล่นที่อื่นซึ่งจะเป็นที่ไหนไปไม่ได้นอกจากคู่แข่งตัวฉกาจอย่าง Paradise Poker นั่นจึงเป็นเหตุผลที่ทำให้โป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์เน้นด้านความปลอดภัยมาเป็นอันดับหนึ่ง

https://preview.redd.it/r78jdafhcon51.jpg?width=1000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6597d482c7c6d290bad0ff63c8c67cc22815aae4
แข่งกันให้บริการ
ด้วยความที่ตอนนั้นธุรกิจ โป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์ ยังสดใหม่และเป็นเครื่องผลิตเงินชั้นยอดที่มี Paradise Poker เป็นตัวชูโรง ทำให้มีผู้ให้บริการรายอื่นๆผุดขึ้นมาเต็มไปหมดในช่วงปี 2542 และ 2544 ไม่ว่าจะเป็น Americas Cardroom Ultimate Bet หรือ ระดับบิ๊กในปัจจุบันอย่าง Pokerstars
โดยปี 2544 เป็นปีที่ PokerStars และ Party Poker เป็นสองแกนนำหลักที่ดึงดูดผู้เล่นเข้ามามากมาย ทั้งสองผู้ให้บริการต่างแข่งขันกันอย่างดุเดือด ทั้งหาผู้เล่นที่จะเป็นตัวแทนของแบรนด์ โฆษณาทางทีวี หรือ จัดแข่งทัวร์นาเมนต์ ซึ่งผู้ที่คิดค้นการจัดทัวร์นาเมนต์การันตีเงินรางวัล 1 ล้านเหรียญสหรัฐ ก็คือ Party Poker
ถ้าคุณไม่ได้เริ่มเล่นโป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์ช่วงหลังปี 2546 คุณก็คงคุ้นชินกับการเข้าไปแล้วเจอผู้เล่นเต็มโต๊ะตลอด แต่สำหรับช่วงแรกๆนั้น ผู้เล่นยังน้อยและไม่พอในการเปิดโต๊ะ ตัวผู้ให้บริการจึงจ้างพวกโปรโป๊กเกอร์มาคอยนั่งให้ครบจนสามารถเปิดโต๊ะได้และย้ายไปช่วยเปิดโต๊ะอื่นเรื่อยๆ

https://preview.redd.it/2c6syl7rfon51.jpg?width=1000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=53f083d7fd12d6593a6c3155beaeac35138cb821
ยุครุ่งเรืองของ โป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์
จุดเปลี่ยนจริงๆที่ทำให้โป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์บูมขึ้นมาจะเป็นช่วงปี 2545 ที่มีสองเหตุการณ์หลักๆเลยคือ
  1. World Poker Tour (WPT) ที่มีทั้งผู้ชมในห้องส่ง ความตื่นเต้นของเกม เงินรางวัลล่อตาล่อใจ แถมยังออกอากาศทางโทรทัศน์ไปทั่วโลก ซึ่งรายการนี้ยังเป็นรายการแรกที่ผู้ชมที่อยู่หน้าจอโทรทัศน์สามารถเห็นไพ่ของผู้เข้าแข่งขันภายในงานได้อีกด้วย
  2. ปี 2546 สมัยที่ คริส มันนีเมกเกอร์ (Chris Moneymaker) ยังเป็นนักบัญชีต๊อกต๋อยได้ Satellite $39 จาก PokerStars มาและได้ตั๋วเข้าไปต่อและคว้าแชมป์ทัวร์นาเมนต์ใหญ่ที่สุดในโลกอย่าง World Series of Poker Main Event พร้อมแบกเงินกลับบ้านกว่า 2.5 ล้านเหรียญสหรัฐ

นั่นเป็นเหตุให้มีผู้เล่นเพิ่มมากขึ้นอย่างล้นหลามในช่วง 2 ปีหลังจากนั้น จากรายการ World Series of Poker Main Event เพียง 839 คนในปี 2546 เพิ่มขึ้นมาเป็น 5619 ในปี 2548 และยังส่งผลให้มีผู้เล่นไหลทะลักเข้าไปใช้บริการโป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์อย่างมหาศาลจนทำให้มูลค่ากิจการเติบโตไปเป็นพันๆล้าน
ยุคมืดของ โป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์
ในปี 2549 สหรัฐได้ออกกฎหมายเกี่ยวกับการพนันออนไลน์ (UIGEA) ที่ออกแบบมาเพื่อป้องกันไม่ให้เม็ดเงินจำนวนมากจากสหรัฐไหลออกนอกประเทศโดยที่เก็บภาษีจากผู้ให้บริการไม่ได้ ซึ่งมีผลให้การทำธุรกรรมทุกอย่างที่เกี่ยวข้องกับการพนันออนไลน์ผิดกฎหมายในสหรัฐ จึงเป็นเหตุให้ผู้ให้บริการโป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์สูญเสียลูกค้าในสหรัฐไปเป็นจำนวนมาก
นอกจากนี้ก็ยังมีข่าวฉาวต่างๆที่ทำให้ภาพพจน์โป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์เสียหายอยู่ตลอด ทั้งซอฟต์แวร์ออกไพ่ไม่ดีมั่งล่ะ โดนมือดีมาแฮ็คซอฟต์แวร์มั่งล่ะ หรือแม้แต่เว็บผู้ให้บริการโกงเงินผู้เล่น อย่าง Fulltilt Poker ที่ปิดให้บริการไปแล้วก็มีข่าวโกงเงินผู้เล่นเหมือนกัน

Black Friday
เท่านั้นยังไม่พอ ในปี 2554 ยังมีเหตุการณ์ที่นักโป๊กเกอร์แทบทุกคนจะจำไม่มีวันลืมนั่นก็คือ Black Friday วันศุกร์ที่ 15 เมษายน เป็นวันที่กระทรวงยุติธรรมสหรัฐได้สั่งฟ้องผู้ให้บริการที่ยังรับผู้เล่นจากสหรัฐอยู่ ซึ่งมีเจ้าหลักๆเลยคือ Pokerstars Absolute Poker และ Fulltilt Poker โดย Pokerstars ยังมีเงินจ่ายค่าปรับเพื่อรักษากิจการต่อไปได้ ส่วนสองแห่งที่เหลือต่างต้องเลือกล้มละลาย
โดยระหว่างที่ฟ้องร้องกันอยู่นั้น กระทรวงยุติธรรมสหรัฐก็ได้ทำการปิดระบบโอนเงิน ทำให้เหล่าผู้เล่นและสมาชิกของเว็บในสหรัฐต่างถอนเงินออกไม่ได้และไม่ได้เงินจากเว็บคืน นอกจากนี้ผู้เล่นอื่นๆจากทั่วทุกมุมโลกที่เป็นสมาชิกของอีกสองเจ้าที่ล้มละลายไปต่างก็ไม่ได้รับเงินคืนเช่นกัน จะมีเพียง PokerStars เท่านั้นที่ประนีประนอมจนสามารถจ่ายคืนผู้เล่นไปได้
แต่ท้ายที่สุด PokerStarsก็สามารถตกลงกับกระทรวงยุติธรรมสหรัฐและเข้าซื้อ FullTilit Poker ที่ล้มละลายไปแล้วได้สำเร็จ พร้อมคืนเงินผู้เล่นจากทั่วโลกที่ยังมีเงินติดค้างอยู่ในบัญชี
ปัจจุบันนี้ทางสหรัฐเองก็เริ่มเล็งเห็นว่า โป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์ ไม่ผิดกฎหมายแล้ว และกำลังแก้กฎหมายกันไปทีละรัฐ โดยตอนนี้ก็มีหลายรัฐแล้วที่อนุญาตให้เปิดบริการโป๊กเกอร์ออนไลน์อย่างเป็นทางการ

Pokerstars changing prohibited jurisdictions in Europe?

I just noticed I can play for real money on Pokerstars from Slovakia despite them not having local license. We had black Friday more than a year ago, with government banning all the casinos that didn't ask for a licence, e.g. WH, Unibet, 888 etc. They are still banned, so change probably didn't come from our government. Some sites, like pokerstars and fulltilt decided to pull out on their own before they were banned.
Now they seem to be back with no official statements found by my google-fu. Some slovak articles claim they decided to offer poker illegally, but they doesn't seem to match their long term policy.
And a lot of countries that have been banned from online poker (to my knowledge) are missing from their list here, e.g. Slovenia or Switzerland. For example Czech republic was in weird model where they couldn't play sponsored tourneys, but otherwise they could play for real money. Now they are not mentioned there, so it seems they can play anything.
Anybody has any info on this? Did they win some EU court case or something?

Had my first 2/5 session tonight, wanted to share and have a few questions

I had my first 2/5 session today and had a blast overall! I had a few strange interactions, mostly with 1 guy who apparently started fulltilt(?) or some poker site with Antonio Esfandiari. Talks alot about his past poker tourny days, famous people who were big in early 2k era, and is shocked when I havent heard who some of them are.

Anyway, we had a few exchanges and I had some questions about things I haven't heard before.

  1. What's the Table Captain? He described it as the person who is constantly c-betting and attacking pots. This seems weird to me because while running hot is one thing, just c-betting because you have 'intimidation' factor seems super dumb. Sounds more like the guy is spewing because he's up and we can easily punish with 3-bets and possibly a trappy line with our bigger hands. Thoughts?
  2. Is putting in chips that fall over when you bet bad etiquette and is this considered splashing the pot? I did this a few times and he corrected me and seemed nice but agitated about it. I thought it was more tossing them in the middle, but I think I might be wrong about that.
  3. At the end of my session (+833), I mentioned it was my last orbit and he said I should walk before BB even gets to me. I said that didn't make sense to me because I've already paid the BB and should see free cards until I can't. He said something about the expected value of me losing isn't worth seeing the cards. Is he saying this b/c I'm in an earlier position? Why would I not just play my normal opening range which tightens naturally by position anyway?

The session overall was ~4.5 hours and alot of fun. I felt I was 3-betting plenty, being aggressive in pots, and running big bluffs at times that made sense while sticking to a generally tight range. I definitely look super young and was in a suit for work earlier that day. I was very conversational and I think it was perceived as I'm a fish with a job and $$ to blow, especially since I did some things that probably showed I was new to that casino (I didn't realize in 2/3/5 that button can ask for chop and get 1$ back). I got caught on a bluff early and was able to PRINT money later in my session just going 3 streets for value with just TPTP in some cases. 2/5 seemed super station-y overall, but I was able to get a few nice bluffs with strong removal in. Some bluffs I showed to continue to rep the loose/fishy image. Being new to 2/5, it felt a bit weird being looked at and talked to like a fish the whole time. They would say things like 'oh you would have gotten me if you'd gone for a big reraise!' and were in shock when I rivered a flush on a turn x/r semi-bluff with a GSSD and FD because I 'bet $140 chasing a flush'. TBF, it was 3h9h, but they opened 3x with 4 callers in front and Im BB... Made it hard to tell at times if I was actually being a fish or they just didn't get what why I was doing stuff/the basic math of poker. Also I've come to love x/r. Puts so many middling hands in such weird spots and lets you print if they over-defend.

Revolution in online poker is about to happen

Many of us enjoy playing poker with the friends, colleagues or just random people as it is quite a fun way to spend time. However, there are actually people that make their living out of poker.
There are quite many sources that describe the earnings of the poker players and their net worth, but so far it seems that the top 5 richest poker players (whose income is mostly driven by the winnings) are:

5 – Joe Hachem ($11.8 million)

4 – Sam Trickett ($16.6 million)

3 – Erik Seidel ($17.2 million)

2 – Antonio Esfandiari ($22.9 million)

1 – Phil Ivey ($100 million)

Even though the biggest tournaments are happening offline, the largest volumes are dealt in various online poker rooms. It may be quite challenging to become a poker millionaire without winning one of the main poker events, yet there are many people that can afford luxurious life simply by playing a few dozens of hands each day. However, today we will not be looking at the poker players, but we are going to focus on the poker industry from the insider’s perspective and see how quickly it can be changed in the future.
A quick overview
Throughout the history, online poker industry has been dominated by the PokerStars brand, and the only company that was competing with it was FullTilt poker. However, in mid 2011 FullTilt went bankrupt and was acquired by PokerStars. Since then, its leadership has been disputed.
Today, there are many online casino brands launching their own poker rooms, yet when combined they are taking a much smaller market share than PokerStars. However, there are quite some drastic changes coming up and it does seem that even PokerStars may not be ready.
Europe represents the largest market for online poker and recently there were some regulations passed regarding online gambling. While those laws actually make internet gambling legal, they come with such harsh requirements that many companies have decided to simply skip these markets and focus on their operations in the other countries.
Apart from that, the technology behind the online poker rooms has been lacking some development when it is compared against the other companies in the iGaming sector or other sectors of Information Technology.
Today we are going to explain you how Cash Poker Pro can tackle all of these issues and become a successful competitor of PokerStars in the very near future. But before we begin, let us quickly tell you what Cash Poker Pro is all about.
Cash Poker Pro in a nutshell
Cash Poker Pro (or CPP for short) is an online poker room that is available through various instant messengers (such as Whatsapp, Telegram, WeChat etc) and also as a web app. It lets people play poker online using a decentralised technology. Yes, we are talking blockchain here.
Considering the CPP’s technology, it can operate in any possible location as long as at least one of the supporter messenger apps is available there. Besides that, CPP deliver a great level of transparency and trust, as there is absolutely no way the company can manipulate the results of the game. Finally, CPP can provide great gaming experience at the fraction of the costs when compared to any other alternative on the market. Now let’s take a look at how exactly it will revolutionise the world of online poker.
Available anywhere
Cash Poker Pro is designed to be available at any possible device, at any possible location, and at any possible jurisdiction. These are the main reasons that landed Cash Poker Pro a title of the best October’s ICO at ForexNewsNow rating.
There are a few challenges faced by the iOS and Android developers. First of all, it is pretty damn hard to design the apps that deliver identical experience. In most of the cases, one of the OS will receive an inferior version. Secondly, the hardware itself is quite an issue. This is why it is so common to see unsupported apps in the Play Market or App Store when using a dated device. Finally, it is still up to Google and Apple to allow the listing of your application, and in most of the cases, you will not be allowed to bring in a gambling app into the Store.
Cash Poker Pro eliminates this barrier by letting the players participate in the game via the messaging apps. Such apps are available in every country, no matter whether online poker is allowed or prohibited there. Besides that, all of the smart-type of the devices support the messaging apps as those are the core component.
Considering that CPP is decentralised, it can operate in all of the dark, grey and regulated areas likewise.
Keen to invest?
Not only CPP is great for the players, it is also amazing for the possible investors. Unlike all of the old fashioned companies, CPP gives you an opportunity to become a partial owner of the poker room by purchasing the tokens during Cash Poker Pro ICO. It is based on Ethereum and it has already been backed by 400,000 USD of investments during the pre-ICO stage. Its goal is to raise 30,000,000 USD by selling 60,000,000 tokens under the symbol CASH.

Questions Answers
You're about to die. There is an amateur poker player sitting right next to you. You decide that your final words will encompass the most important thing you have learned throughout your years of pro poker. WHAT ARE YOUR FINAL WORDS??? Tldr: gimme some good poker tips. 1st off, your screenname is priceless...This one's an easy one for me though. Never let your ego get in the way of continuing to try and learn as much as you can about the game. Too many players hit a point where they start to win and then refuse to admit they can always learn more. I call this the game over point lol.
Can you loan me a few hundred bucks? my tv just shit the bed. You take Full Tilt transfers?
Does that eventually translate to real cash lol, Haha we can only pray.
I wish this wasn't a joke. A friend of mine won an FTOPS event a few days before they were raided and hadn't withdrawn in months. Sigh, yea I know...I just try and use humor not to punch holes in walls.
Can I ask how much did you lose when FT went tits up? I didn't get killed very badly, I was taking some time off poker so had a good chunk of my online roll off the sites. I was saying in an earlier post I was with a buddy who had about 200k online at the time when we found out the shit hit the fan. Never thought I'd see someone get that emotional, but clearly understandable. :/
Are you the Jason Lee that recently got signed to Lock Poker? I would be that same Jason Lee.
I assume that you would recommend this site to US players as opposed to bovada and the like? As this a merge skin, how confident should US players be about depositing mobnies on this site. I cant stand Bovada btw. Yea, I actually never even got on Bovada because I just heard the most tilting stories about it. I'm personally very confident with my money on Lock, and not just saying that because I'm one of their pros. The upper management there actually cares about their players and is constantly looking to improve the customer experience. This is something I respect a lot about them.
I only have money on Bovada....well I do have a few hundo still on Full Tilt...those fucks. If you're interested in moving over, shoot me a PM before you get on, I get some special perks I can offer people that create accounts.
Pretty much....I actually laughed at the customer service rep that I talked to, said, "you fuckin kidding me" and hung up. Yea, I had a buddy that just posted a blog about that jacking a bunch of cash from him as well. I'd be scared playing on a site that it's sister site (Blow-dog)'s domain just got appropriated by the DOJ.
Are you still living in the states playing online or have you moved eslewhere? Been literally bouncing all over the place as of late, but all in the states. I'm currently doing this Reddit from Vegas. Seems like a decent place to be? lol Most of my friends went to Canada, Costa Rica and a few to Panama and Thailand.
How hard is it to do your taxes? The first year I did them it was hell because I didn't stay on top of keeping records and had to retro go back and do everything. Since then I learned my lesson and stayed on top of keeping records. Its still annoying though every year when everyone is talking about getting their returns and I'm writing a check to Uncle Sam.
But you get to write off your losses, right? I'd imagine that good records are very important. Does the IRS keep a special watch on pro gamblers for audit purposes? Seems like one of those professions that would be red flagged by them. Yea, and they actually changed the legislation this year that if you have a net losing year, you can actually roll those loses into future years...a.k.a lose 10k this year, make 100k next...only pay taxes on 90k.
Most money you've ever lost in one pot? Don't play a tooooon of cash games, so prolly only a few thousand in that department. The biggest tournament I've played and busted was a 20k buyin in France. I had lots of beers after that one.
only a few thousand in that department. That'd pay my rent and feed me for half a year. Fair as fuck :) Hah, yea...I try not to get greedy like some players. I'm happy when I lose $1 and mad when I lose .01. lol.
How much vanished into the Full Tilt black hole? Any funds lost on the evil twins aka UB/AP? I actually didn't get killed as much as a lot of my friends because it was during my 8 month hiatus from the game last year so I didn't have a ton on there. I had some friends though that had a couple hundred k on there and was with them when they found out it all went bye bye. Let's just say I saw a lot of people get a lot more emotional than I ever expected to see them get.
I'll go for the classic question... how much of poker is strategy, and how much is luck? And what can a player do when their luck sucks? Oldie but a goodie (I heard an old person say that once lol)...I'd say if I had to put numbers on it, about 65% skill, 30% luck and 5% how much the poker gods love you. These numbers I think against worse players move to 70-75% skill because you're able to read them better and push them around more effectively. I will never deny though that there definitely is a luck factor involved, its just not the predominant factor in determining who wins and who loses.
How do you distinguish between luck and the poker gods? I'm an atheist, but if praying to the poker gods can give me a 5% edge, I'll take it. If you can maximize what you win with the best hands and minimize what you lose with the worst, that I consider skill. Actually getting the best and worst hands, thats the luck part. Also getting it in as a big favorite = skill, losing as a big favorite=luck.
I'm no pro, but I've always said that in poker skill is what helps you get lucky, would that be adequate? Ehhh, when you need to get lucky is usually only when you get your money in bad, so technically it would be something only happening when you're playing less than optimally. However, it would be adequate to say that a skilled player will take better advantage of hitting a miracle card or getting lucky.
Is it true that the key to winning is just winning a little bit, then leaving the table? Def disagree with this. A lot of people after they see me win a pot are like ooooo take that cash and run. The thing is, if you're in a good game, you should stay in that game as long as you're playing well and the game stays a good game. I also think I play a lot better when I'm winning, so I will def keep playing.
I'm mainly a tournament guy so they usually don't let me leave after I win a pot :P.
How about online poker? What do you think? If I'm having a bad day, I'll unregister from the rest of my tournaments so I can proceed to ram my head into the wall. But I feel like its the same as live, if you're playing well and in a good game; stay in it. If people are willing to give cash away, stay and take it :)
What do you think is the major difference between online and real life poker? I reallllly like online because I'm about as ADD as they come. I usually play 10-20 tables at once, mainly to keep my mind busy and keep me from doing anything stupid and playing too many hands. This is the biggest difference I see.
As per strategy wise, live players love to call more (and bigger) 3 bets preflop ~ they just refuse to not defend here, the blinds usually defend a lot more live as well, raise sizes usually need to be bigger live to accomplish the same annnndd.....those are the main differences that pop into my mind.
You can of course also see your opponent to allow for making more reads and they make me wear pants live :(
We need to get you some Adderall. You would be unstoppable! Lol, used it before...I think I was the definition of "dialed in".
What do you mean by defend. Basically when you raise someone's blind and they choose to not fold and fight you in the pot with a mediocre to bad holding they might normally fold, this is called defending. Usually its to send you a message to stop 3 betting them or stop stealing their blinds.
Hell of a story man, I get the same feel when I go mini-golfing with my BROS and on the 18th hole the ball just floats, time stops, my mind goes numb, and it just sinks right in for a hole in one. Then I'm like FREE ROUND BITCHES. I enjoy playing 10-2 off-suit in low buyin games just to fuck with people, you should try that for me someday. I hope you're comfortable because I've been waiting for a pro poker player for a long time now, I ain't goin anywhere. If you could play poker with any 5 people (living or dead, fictional or real), who would they be? Great question... outside of just saying EVERYONE of the business men playing in the huge Macau game...if it were purely a social game Superman, The Devil, Ivey, Dwan and Howard Lederer...the first 4 to challenge myself since its a fun game, and Howard to punch in the face.
Yeah fuck him, I used to have a Full Tilt account and that could have been my money. Need my money for taco bell 5 buck boxes and also other things. Do you gamble much on non-skill games? Or any games involving a house advantage? The best was right after all this shit last year, his wife tried to release her own jewelry line at the WSOP. I reaaaalllllly wanted to go up and just request my jewelry since it was clearly paid for with a bunch of our cash.
Do you think that in 2011/2012 the online games have got a lot tougher to beat? How far can you go with ABC poker online? What level can you beat with this technique? Is playing multitable with reasonably good regs profitable at high levels? 1- I think the low to mid stakes online have actually gotten considerably easier. A lot of the serious low to mid stakes grinders ended up moving on to other things leaving a bit of a vacuum at these stakes. I think the higher stakes have gotten a bit more difficult with a lot of the fish exiting the market. They are slowly returning though from my observations. 2- I honestly think pretty straight forward ABC can beat almost any level of poker. My deepest live run at the EPT Villamoura stop, I literally played straight forward ABC for all 6 days. No crazy bluffs, no wild floats etc etc, just played my cards optimally and made solid reads. Everyone else got out of line and paid when I had it. There are a few adjustments you can occasionally make - getting more aggressive on the bubble, stealing some blinds when the antes kick in, but for the most part the ABC can beat all levels. 4- Profitability defffffinetly goes way down when you start playing with all regs. I still think there are a lot of regs that are profitable that have leaks that can be exploited. I'm pretty positive I have leaks that can be exploited as well. So to answer the question, yes they can be profitable but definitely tougher to beat.
Has your game been impacted by becoming well known? I have heard every donk on the table wants to felt the big name pro so if it's true, how do you adapt to that? Its interesting, because I never really experienced this until very very recently. As per being known at live tournaments, I get noticed and recognized a lot less than some people might expect. They usually just look at me and go, "oh look some crazy internet kid," just because I'm young, pale and have zero sense of style :)
The crazy part is since I signed with Lock and they made my screenname highlighted in red on there, I feel like a baby goat in a sea of wolves. I have NEVER had people try and make plays and bluff me as much as I'm experiencing on there. It's increased so much that I've had to make strategic adjustments to how I play.
I basically always tell people I want to play opposite of everyone else. If everyone is going to try and bluff me and run over me every pot, I choose to just sit back, pick up a hand and let them bluff off the world to me. It's nice to almost always get action on hands, it is a bit more boring though. Winning poker isn't always "fun poker" lol.
$3 million in winnings? Feeling charitable? :D. Haha, as of late I've been gladly donating back to the community, not by choice though lol.
Story? Not a super eventful one; just on a bit of a downswing. Nothing huge, I just always get annoyed when I don't win.
Oh I thought your neighbouring community I didn't get it as the ''Poker Community'' ! I thought you had gone nuts with that money and somewhat landed in trouble that required you to pay back to the community. Hah, I am a bit of a wild one at times, but thankfully no on that...so far.
Does phil Hellmuth really bitch about every hand or is that some gimmick? I actually did a TV show with Phil a few years ago, here's a link to an article about it.
Best Damn Poker Show
Basically, I asked Phil this question directly. His response was basically, he does get upset when people do moronic things but a lot of the over the top reactions are aimed at branding himself as the Poker Brat. Everyone loves to hate someone, and also loves to see what they're going to do next. This is pretty much what he's shooting for which I understand and thinks is prolly business smart, just a lot to deal with if you're the one getting berated.
3 or 4 bet Hellmuth and he will get pissed. You'd be surprised how often if you give someone shit for 3 or 4 betting how often they'll never do it as a bluff again.
Is Bellande's twitter not the most comical poker twitter feed going or what? I mean who is that guys backer? haha. Lol, I don't follow him but definitely going to check it out. I actually hammered one night in Canada at the NAPT jokingly tried to trade my gf at the time for a rack of chips from him. I was joking of course but apparently she didn't find the humor. Maybe this is the reason I'm single now lol.
Dude, check it out. Its hilarious. He's def getting a new follower.
Why do you play under a recognizable screenname online? Doesn't it make you more of a target/predictable? I think when I started playing, I had dreams of being a notable player, someone people recognized. Not so much to be a fame whore, but more for validation that I truly made it in the industry. It's def a lot easier to brand yourself this way if there is congruency in who you are everywhere.
From a direct dollar making stand point though, different screennames is probably +ev.
Makes sense. I'll prolly stick with the same screennames/image for the rest of time. I've started expanding my poker career into teaching, writing and some other aspects to make money outside of just playing. I also don't really mind if I lose a little bit of EV to help advance the other poker related endeavors.
Considering your skill, at what point do you imagine letting go of the pro image to make money anonymously? Do you not already have multiple accounts for this? There are also some perks to knowing people think they know how you normally play. It allows you to take some unconventional lines some times because you know people think they know how you always play things. (If that made sense lol)
Also, pokerstars or fulltilt (or other)? No multiple accounts for this guy, JaspudUF till I die :)
I like your integrity. Thanks for answering my questions! Of course, hope the info helps some :)
Ever splash the pot? Every chance I get :)
What would you advise to anyone looking to use Poker as a source of income in the future? How often do you play? Biggest Win? McDonalds or KFC? I would say make sure that you truly are being honest with yourself about being a winner or a loser at the game. So many people tell me they beat the game and when we sit down and actually look at numbers, they're lieing to themselves. If you do find you are winning consistently, make sure its enough to sustain your desired life and more importantly you have a cushion in case of an inevitable bad run. I prolly play 3-4 days a week, I used to obsessively play 6-7 days a week but I think that was not good for the health.
KFC if I'm running good, McDonalds after a bad session. No questions asked there haha.
What are your other hobbies? I'm a gym rat, I kickbox and do jui-jitsu (although I havent in a few months since I've been traveling a lot :/ Reddit and internet humor have become amazing hobbies as of late lol and my number 1 hobby is actually people watching. I love the nonverbal communication/psychology side of poker and life, and just chilling trying to study what people are thinking amuses the hell out of me.
I actually have to tell girls on dates that when I'm constantly staring over there shoulders at other people its not because I dont enjoy their company but just obsessed with people watching. lol.
Such a romantic! I need to hit the gym. When I'm much older I think instead of jigsaw building and wetting myself I will take up Poker. At the moment money isn't available to piss away. For non money games I have been good online, however I think I would be awful under pressure. My buddies grandma just came into town and she might be the biggest gamblecard player I've ever met in my life. If I tried to make her do a jigsaw puzzle, she'd ask me how much I want to play for per piece. Def a mind stimulating game.
What are you planning to play at the WSOP this year? How many events? I cant wait to watch the "Drop in the Bucket" tourney. Im surprised Ivey hasnt confirmed yet....I realize he has a lot of shit goin on with FT and his divorce and shit. That Drop in the Bucket tourney will be insane if it runs. I hear a few rumors that even though they have a bunch of confirmed players, no ones put the cash down yet. I can't confirm this but its what I'm hearing. As per me, I'm going to try and play as many of the hold em events as possible. I took last summer off and am completely drooling waiting to play this year.
I always try and get backing for the series, which I haven't yet started looking into this year but that usually helps dictate how much I'm going to play. I paid for the series myself one year and frankly the potential swings on that are huge and very few players are anywhere close to properly bankrolled for these tourneys.
The series is the most fun time of the year but its also for about 95% of the players, the most frustrating time of the year. You get so excited about the potential of the cash and a bracelet and then if you don't prevail, its tough to pick yourself up and come back the next day for more of a pounding lol.
Do you remember a few years ago, theres was this dude from NY a few years ago that had a blog on Pokerroad that would go ape shit on his blog after he busted from a WSOP prelim? I cant remember his name but it was hilarious. Joe Sebok supplied with a cam to record that shit. Lol, I don't but if you find a link to it, please post...I love watching people tilt haha.
Theres only a few dudes that are rolled for that Drop in a Bucket...Guy Laliberte, a few Asian businessmen, and that dude that owns a few casinos in vegas. Yea sooooooo few people are rolled for that. I've heard that they're going to run regional satellites but haven't seen any links or anything. I'm going to choose not to play that one, unless someone gives me a milly to play it. I won't say no :)
This dude Eugene Todd theres a few on there...if you can find the pokerroad blogs...they are epic. Lol, I just watched about 45 seconds of the intro to his new show. I think I'm somehow on tilt already.
Do you play for fun or just for the money? Also, what's the most you've ever won in a day? I actually do play for fun quite a bit with friends; I almost always lose when I play for fun too lol...When I'm playing to make money, I still love the game and the adrenaline rush accompanied. I stopped loving it for a while last year and got burnt out and immediately took like 8 months off. Best move ever...My largest score was $240k for a 3rd place in an EPT. I guess technically that's 6 days but still my biggest win.
So you won that $240k..what % did you have to pay in taxes? What was your net from that $240k? I was backed in the event; so half of it went to the backers right away. I was in whatever the higher tax bracket was that year, so the taxes on that were rough. The toughest part some card players deal with is taxes aren't always immediately withheld on winnings, so you have to put money aside for when it's time to pay taxes. I have some friends that have won tournaments, spent all the money and come tax time had to figure something out to be able to cover the bill to Uncle Sam.
I would imagine winning the $8.8M 1st prize in the Main Event, they net around $5?M after paying 30-40% in taxes? I'm lucky that my parents stayed involved in my life the past few years to inform me of these things before I also went and did something stupid like that. I try my hardest to share this info with my friends, it occasionally sinks in.
What's the most amazing poker hand you've ever been in? Someone asked this earlier and I couldnt think of an answer, but I think I've thought of one that amused me quite a bit. When I did Good Morning America, we spent a good amount of time teaching George Stephanopoulos the basics of tournament poker. He was definitely a beginner but seemed to be picking up things pretty quickly.
The tournament we ended up playing was a super turbo so things were moving pretty quickly. The gist of the hand was George actually limp trapped me with Queens and owned me on national television. Now, with stack sizes and all it wasn't an amazing trap or anything but I just found it hilarious that he came up with a decent move himself and was able to bust me. I was half proud and half blah lol.
What kind of stakes do you play online? Prior to Black Friday, I would try and play the biggest tourneys they had online and was able to get enough volume with those. Since Black Friday, there are still some good higher buy-in tournaments but not quite enough to fulfill my ADD requirements so I find myself playing everything from the highest buyins down to even playing $20 tournaments.
Cash is cash, even making a lot of money I still get happy when I win $1. Its a perspective I hope to ALWAYS hold on to.
Do you think that poker as a game has peaked? If not, when do you think this will happen? Do you think you could re-create your success starting today from zero? Do you think that online is much harder to win at than live? How many hours a day do you play? I dont think its peaked, I think when things go all out in the states with legislation we're gonna see an explosion. I think I could, all it is is a willingness to learn, hard work and dedication. All you really need outside of that is emotional control and I think there might be some form of x factor to it. I think 1 game vs 1 game, online can be tougher, but the ability to multi table allows you to severely cut down on your variance and I think make more in the long run. When I play, usually 8-10 hrs...I've played as much as 37 before though lol I guess technically that wouldn't be in one day. After that sesh, you could have convinced me it was though.
What have you done with your winnings? Done a poor job of saving my winnings but a great job of spending it :) Basically, lived "the life", partied, caused trouble etc etc. Trying to change that this year. Practice and read everything you can get your hands on.
Thanks. :) Out of your winnings, after tax and stakes how much are you at? I think there's always the dream of millions for players but taxes must hurt..:( Taxes are never the fun part haha, I'm not sure exactly where this falls...I'll see if I can pull up records later today and give you a stronger idea of the impact there.
How long did it take for you to become a pro? How did your family/close ones take to you playing excessively? Well... - Started playing when my friends invited me to a home game in college. I was officially the worst lol - After that, I played pretty much every day and read anything and everything I could get my hands on. I think it was maybe like a year later that I started making some dollars and maybe 6 months past that I decided to look at making it a full time gig. - Great question here...I came from a super straight laced, military family. If you can imagine how the phrase of "I want to gamble for a living" went over, it was rough at first. Luckily my parents were somewhat open to the thought of it and basically said, we'll support it as long as you can prove its a viable career and you can sustain a living at it.
How long did it take for you to become a winning player? Where did you mainly play online? Did/do you use good bankroll management? About a year into learning and playing I started actually making positive cash flow. Thankfully before that I stayed playing pretty low so I didn't really lose much. - I used to play predominately on Stars, Tilt and UB. Way back in the day it was Paradise. Now a days, exclusively at Lock. - Its funny, about 99% of my career I have except for my first decent score. I had $120 bucks online and put $60 bucks into a $30 rebuy (oops lol). Ended up cashing for about 3k I think it was and post that returned to being a good boy for the most part in the BR management department.
Best fold you have ever made? Best call? Is it "better" to make a wrong call, or the wrong laydown? Fave hand that you have seen on TV? Best and worst TV pro? Fave and least fave TV pro? The problem with "the best fold you ever made" is you never really know unless your opponent shows you...there are times I was pretty sure I made a rockstar lay down but can't really be sure... They always say its better to make an incorrect fold than a bad call, it costs you less. I think personally a mistake is a mistake and all should be treated the same in your mind (from a learning stand point).
Best TV pro is prolly Ivey...and worst is everyone that's cocky... especially players that go deep in 1 event and immediately start talking about how they're the greatest thing since sliced bread. I'll refrain from mentioning names to avoid the awkward situations lol My fav pros to watch are either my friends or players that are better than me so I can not only be entertained but also learn at the same time.
What's your reading recommendation to get into online poker? I want to prepare now that online gambling is legal. Do you mean in regards to strategy or the logistics of getting back on?
Well, you've got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, know when to run. You never count your money when you're sittin' at the table, there'll be time enough for countin' When the dealin's done. I still randomly sing this at the table :)
Strategies. I know for online there are software programs that measure certain metrics, like how likely the person will fold for certain card combination. I'm a newb.. I want to understand how to analyze the card probabilities & apply user playing history to gain an edge. What's the best book to learn this? Honestly, the best way to win online is just to have strong fundamentals. It sounds like an answer thats "too easy to be true" but in reality, majority of the players you encounter online are really bad and will make mistakes for you. I play more ABC poker than most people would probably expect. I rarely run crazy bluffs or anything like that, unless I'm bored, feel like being a moron or have had a few adult beverages :)
No real question here, just wanted to say thanks for doing the AMA. I've been waiting to hear from a pro poker player for awhile now. Best of luck! Edit: Actually I lied! How do you/any pro players you know, feel about shows like Daniel's "million dollar challenge"? Do you think it hurts the image of poker at all, or helps? Thanks :) Of course, I'm really enjoying it :) Glad to see people are reading and also enjoying.
How did you get started in terms of bankroll nursing? At what point did you feel you could make a living off it? I literally started with $1 tournaments for quite a while and was able to grind it up to like $120 (back in the day on Paradise). I decide one day that taking half of my bank roll and playing a $30 rebuy would be a great idea (I do not recommend this lol). I ended up getting like 6th or 7th for a few thousand. I was in college at the time and a few k, makes you rich haha. About a week later, I final tabled the same tournament for a few thousand more and then started grinding the low low buy-in multis. Blessed with a little run good, here we are today.
It was basically about 6-8 months after those scores that I really started to think there was a possibility I could do it for a living. It was about 1 year after those tournaments that I really seriously began doing it full time.
Thanks! I'll keep grinding then :)). Are you going the the EPT grand final btw? Probably not hitting many of the EPT's this year. That flight from the States is always brutal. I'm enjoying traveling a little less this year. At least thats what I always say and then I end up traveling a ton lol.
Besides you, Daniel Negreanu is one of my favorite poker players. How is he to play against? Is there a person that you seem to either always have trouble with or have bad luck playing against? Well thank you :P Negreanu is definitely a tough player to play against. I think there a lot of other players that have equal the reading skills, but just choose not to vocalize it. It's the worst feeling in the world when someone pegs your hand exactly and lets you know.
There are definitely people that have basically owned my soul in the past. The funny part is its never a well known pro or anything like that. Its usually some guy or girl that seems to be absolutely clueless at the table. This has happened A LOT lol Nothing gets close to tilting more than when this happens. I usually just ask them if they just want me to give them the passwords to my bank accounts.
