WPT Reno 2006 in the books

Well the 2006 World Poker Challenge in Reno is in the books! The No Limit Texas Holdem Poker Main Event just concluded. The final table looked like this:

Mike Simon $1,195,000 1 4
Barry Greenstein $1,085,000 1 1
Tom Schneider $1,020,000 1 3
Jonas Norrman $905,000 1 6
Jason Stern $880,000 1 5
Greg Mueller $835,000 1 2

While Greenstein was second in chips entering the final table, and everyone's early favorite, it was not to be. Four hands in, he was crippled by Simon when they both caught a set of 8's with Simon's A kicker winning the hand!

Simon went on to take down the title, earning the $1,052, 890 first place prize and the $25,000 entry into the World Poker Tour Championship at the Bellagio next month!

Great cards... early exit!

What an incredibly frustrating time I'm having playing texas holdem poker!

I played at the club tonight, and I was getting REALLY good cards all night! Here is what I played:

AQo 3bet preflop ..... flopped AQ bet and won
AQ suited 3 bet... hit nothing - lost
AQ suited 3 bet... hit nothing - lost
AQo limped... hit nothing - lost
KK pushed all in... called by ANOTHER KK... won 50!
7's twice, folded preflop to all in bets
Q3 in the big blind.... ended up chopping to another Q
8's short, with 1300 and blinds 100/200... pushed all in... called by AJo.. he hits a straight... I'm out!

When the odds are against you....

I have had an unbelievable run of bad luck playing online over the past few days.... it's not just that I am getting beat, OR that I am getting sucked out on repeatedly ( which I have been ), but the fact that I have had Pocket Q's 4 times in touraments in the past three days!

Great! You say?

EVERY one of those four times, I have run into Pocket Aces! EVERY TIME! What are the odds of that happening? They have to be astronomical!

Sometimes I just hate this game.....

In Support of Online Poker Idiocy...

Yes, hard as it is to believe, there IS online texas holdem poker idiocy being played at a variety of online poker rooms? GASP!! I know this comes as a trememdous shock for those of you that play regularly online, and respect the sactity of the game ot Texas Holdem Poker!

So for those remarkable online warriors...

Keep calling me with that A2o... you sucked out once, and I'm SURE it can happen often with a superior hand like that!

Please dont stop calling my pocket pair with A5! It's sure to continue to hit that second pair on the river to make your Ace good! Nice call there!

QTo is a remarkably superior hand. You should call with it from any position... really!

Please continue this remarkable play people.... it is helping contribute to the fine reputation that Online Poker is getting!

Sometimes I have doubts.....

I played in a 180 person No Limit Texas Holdem Poker event at Poker Stars yesterday, and played pretty damn well for the most part. I made it down to 27 players, finding myself 8th in chip count, and knowing that 18 places cash! Should have been a cake walk into the cash, right?

So why the hell did I make that silly all-in call when I flopped an open ender, when we were down to 19? Yep... out on the bubble, and no damn reason for it, other than my own silliness....

Getting past a bad call....

I went to the club last night for some no limit texas holdem poker action. I like going to the club, because I like the guys, and the action is normally pretty good, especially after playing against online idiocy alot! The players at the club generally are better, and you can generally expect a high level of play.

Last night however, I got knocked out by what I would consider a bad call, more inline with what you can expect online in a $5 game......

I'm short at $1000, with the blinds at 100/200... I have one limper, and look down to see pocket 7's. I move all in ( table is down to 6 ). Big Blind ponders for a while, and decides to call. Ok, to be expected if he has a big hand, right?

He has QTo! He's NOT getting 2/1 on his money..... I expected, and did get sucked out on, when a ten hit the turn.... sometimes the game just just loves rewarding poor play.....

online poker, suck outs and bad beats...

Well let me start off by saying I HATE FULL TILT POKER. Ok now that we got that over with i'll explain recent events that happened to me and made me rather upset. The first sit n go I played my kings ran into aces, any poker player knows how bad that hurts. The next tourney had 45 people and I was sent to the rail after my A-A was cracked by a-q os in 42nd position, that felt really good when the 3rd queen hit the river.

Seems like no matter what I do at FTP I get sucked out, or ran into a wall. Im beginning to think its my luck, but who knows. When you run into spots with the best hand time and time again it will soon pay off....

As for the kings it was just a bad spot, shame on me....Until next time...

Keeping the streak alive....

Well, after a good day Monday, I followed it up with a couple of cash's yesterday in some No Limit Texas Holdem Poker Multi Table events!

Took a 2nd in a 3 table, and 14th in the 180 player event, so ended the day up quite a bit. Was not happy with play in the bigger event, and probably took a hit that I did not need to, but thats poker...

With that success, I sat down last eventing and played a couple of events since the wife and grand daughter kicked me off the TV.... did not fair too well. I got sucked out on with pocket 8's when an A hit on the river ( guy called with A2o... whadda ya do? ). We'll see how things go today! ;-)

It feels so good to finally place....

I played in a MTT of sorts at Poker Stars yesterday. It was a No Limit Texas Holdem Poker 180 Player mini-tourney for $20. The top 18 places cash. These take a few hours to complete, but if you are patient, and play solid, you can make it worth your while.

I held my own throughout most of the event, but one bad beat took me down to about $750 mid-way through the tourney. I kept patient, and battled my way back to about $2500 when things got down to around 35 players. THEN, I got some luck! I got AA and QQ in back to back hands! AA held, and QQ made a set, and I was over 10K and in good shape after those!

By playing somewhat tight, I was able to get into the top three, when I got QQ again.... unfortunately, I got called by A9, and a A flopped... but hey... third paid well! ;-)

Not a good week...

I have played at the club the past two nights, and have not had much success..... Thursday night, I played pretty well. I was patient, and played solid hands, keeping alive, and growing my stack when it was getting low. When we were down to 7, we played a long time and no one wanted to go away! Finally this hand came up:

I have AQ and decide to limp.... player to my right limps.. next player goes all in. I decide to call the all in. Third player calls the all in also! They have 9's and 6's! Guy called his entire stack off with pocket 6's with TWO All-in's in front of him. Of course he hit a six to take it down ( read yesterday's article ).

Last night, we are playing with 2000 in chips with 45 minute levels. I played the following hands: 7's, Q's twice, A's, AQs, and AKs

I lost every one of those hands except the A's! My AKs got knocked out by AQo...... ugly night.....

The Truth About Bad Beats

I thought this article was pretty much right on.....

The Truth About Bad Beats
Alan Bloomfield

If you play poker you've been there before and you know exactly what I'm talking about. You get your money in the pot as a huge favorite only to lose the hand when your opponet catches that miracle river card.

Most players, including myself, get mad or upset when this happens to them. You say to yourself, or the player that just gave you that bad beat, "How can you call with that hand" or "why were you even playing that?"

Most poker players get upset at their opponet for making a bad call and then winning the hand. In reality, you should be glad that you are playing against such an opponet because they are giving you a great opportunity to win money.

Bad Players Give Bad Beats

Usually the people that are giving bad beats are bad players. It usually takes a bad call or a bad play for a bad beat to happen. If it wasn't for these bad beats, bad players simply wouldn't play poker.

Think about it, if bad players lost every time they got their money into the pot they simply would quit playing. Is this what we really want? The answer is no, because if there wasn't someone out there trying to give thier money away, this game would be impossible to beat. The only people playing would be solid players that never make mistakes. Then the only people making money off of poker would be the casinos.

Not only do the bad beats keep the bad players in the game, in a way it prevents them from improving their game and becoming better players. The luck that's involved with poker can convince a bad player that they might be good. These bad players can have a winning session because of a few bad beats. Then on nights they don't win they can also convince themselves that it was just bad luck that they had a losing session.

Good Players Suffer More Bad Beats

Good players will suffer more bad beats than they will ever give out. The reason is good players get their money into the pot when they are ahead more often than when they are behind. This is the reason why good players are good.

Good players will pick their spots and make better decisions to get their money in as a favorite. When you are constantly ahead and everybody is trying to outdraw you, they're going to get lucky every now and then.


Poker players need to think more long term than they do short term. Think of a poker session as a life long project. Whenever you do take a bad beat and lose a big pot, think long term instead of short term. If you get your money into the pot 1,000 times in that same exact situation how many much money am I going to win? Just an example, if you get all your money in the pot 1,000 times with AA vs. QTo for $300 a pot, you are going to win about 836 times and lose about 160 of them. Over a 1,000 hands you will win about $202,800. So don't get upset over the 160 times you lose that hand and just continue your life long session and wait for you next opportunity.

2006 National Heads Up Champ Crowned

Ted Forrest won the 2nd Annual National Heads Up Poker Championship early this morning! Forrest is a well known poker pro to anyone familiar with the poker scene. He has a couple WSOP braclets, and is a fixture in some of the biggest cash games in Vegas.

Coming in 2nd AGAIN, is Chris "Jesus" Ferguson! I'm sure Ferguson is not happy being second again, but getting to that point two years in a row is quite a feat, considering the field of pros one must go through!

Forrest took down $500K for his first place finish, and Ferguson $250K for coming in second.

NBC will be airing 10 hours of this event starting April 16, so you can see how each got to the championship table!

Played well and had some luck

I played some no limit texas holdem poker last night at the club and fared pretty well!

There was a point just after the 6th level, where I was down to $1825 with the blinds at 300/600. I got lucky! First hand after this blind increase, I got AQ and pushed my stack... I got called by Pocket 9's and spiked a A on the river to stay alive! Two hands later, I got those 9's and doubled up again, just before we combined into the final table!

I played pretty tight at the final table and when we got down to 6, the following occured....

I'm the BB (500/1000) player under the gun makes it 4500... small blind calls... I look down to find Pocket A's! I push all in for $11K... UTG player folds after much deliberation... small blind calls with KJc... Aces hold up, and I find myself the chip leader!

Few hands later, the player that called me with KJ pushs his remaining $2200 in, and I call... small blind and big blind both call. Flop comes T 8 6 rainbow... ugly straight looking possible... I push all in ( I have pocket A's again ).... both small and big fold after much whining ( they both have gut shot's, which is what I wanted to avoid at this point ). A's hold... gut shot's would have hit!

I really didn't see much in the way of hands after this, and we got down to the final three with me only having $17K out of $69K..... I got Pocket J's, and pushed the stack.... unfortunately, the BB had Pocket A's! What are the odds playing 3 way of that?

WSOP Mania at Full Tilt

Full Tilt Poker has been all about the big events and big players since they're inception, so it's no suprise to me that they are going all out to send players to the WSOP! Here is some information on what they are doing!

Last year, our WSOP promotions were an incredible success. During the Main Event, Full Tilt Poker had the biggest presence of any online poker site. It's fair to say that we took Las Vegas and our competitors by surprise. Of course, we can't take that for granted this year. Far from sitting on our laurels, we analyzed our entire WSOP strategy, and fine tuned our tournaments and games to maximize their impact.

On February 15th, we launched Main Event Mania with five components. Last week, we added another, King of the WSOP. In the coming months, we'll introduce other promotions to keep the bandwagon going.

$1 Million WSOP Main Event Seat Giveaway

This year, we're giving away $1 million worth of WSOP Main Event seats for free. We will hold five monthly $200K WSOP 20 Seat Freerolls starting in March. The top 20 finishers in each tournament will all win a seat to the Main Event in Las Vegas. 20 seats a month for five months – that's a total of 100 seats!

Players will have several ways to qualify for the monthly Freerolls without ever buying in:

Earn 10,000 Full Tilt Points for that month – and players get to keep their points.
Be one of our top WSOP point earners for that month. Players earn WSOP points in qualifying WSOP satellites.
Daily Freerolls that send players to the monthly Freerolls.
We want players to know that free really means free at Full Tilt Poker.

$10 Million WSOP Main Event Mania™

This promotion is an overlay available to anyone who wins their WSOP Main Event seat from Full Tilt Poker. If one of our Main Event seat winners goes on to win a spot at the final table, we'll reward them with $50K. If they finish in the top three, we'll give them $100K. If they win the whole tournament, we'll hand over $10 million, in addition to the projected $10 million Main Event top prize.

The message here is simple: With an extra $10 million up for grabs, why would you play anywhere else?

Weekly $1,000 WSOP Main Event Seat Qualifier

Every Monday at 9PM ET until July 10th, we're running a Weekly $1,000 WSOP Main Event Seat Qualifier. This tournament's special distinction is that a player's chance of winning a Main Event seat is higher than in any other tournament we offer. This event is designed so that for every 12 players who enter, one will walk away with a WSOP Main Event seat.

Players can buy in buy in directly for $1,000 + $60, or satellite in for just $4 + $.40 or 50 Full Tilt points. Again, winners will receive a $12K prize package to the Main Event.

Weekly WSOP Main Event Guarantees

From now until July 13th, Full Tilt Poker is running at least two WSOP Main Event Guarantees per week. These tournaments will send more than 100 players to the WSOP Main Event. The buy in is $200 + $16, and satellites start at just $4 + $.40 or 50 Full Tilt Points.

King of the WSOP

With all the great players on our site and so many seats up for grabs, we fully expect a number of Tilters to win more than one Main Event seat, and, whoever wins the most, will be crowned the King of the WSOP.

The King will receive first-class airfare to the Main Event in Las Vegas, an upgraded suite at the Rio, and 24 hour per day access to a limousine. In addition to the royal treatment in Vegas, when the King begins his one-year reign at Full Tilt Poker, we'll crown the avatar of his or her choice. So, whether they're a donkey or a shark, it's good to be the King at Full Tilt Poker.
