      About me!

      Im 24 year old applied math student, 24 Yes i took the long long way around to university but im there now. xD

      I've been playing poker for 3 years, been successfull at SSS and FTP's ST's in the past, but ive never really kept to one style for long enough to move up in the stakes much. This time i plan to take on the world of MTT's!



      With a bike that matches my shirt no1 can stop me! :f_biggrin:

      I live in south africa, i know there are more of u here. Drop me a line on my blog! <3

      Other major hobby is road running. Heres hoping poker and running will be a success.

      My results over the last 4 days....





      Hopefully those gaping jaws gonna clamp down on some fishies! :s_cool:

      Going to use the opportunity to study some today instead of playing further.

      Going to post the things im doing here to keep track of it :)

      Things i want to look into are :

      1 )Way ahead, way behind situations in MTT's

      2)Ultra short stack play, I find I often dont myself the best chance of coming back from losing a all in.

      I regards to ultra short stack play, want to look into the viability of stop and go / limp and go aswell as rather calling any2 on the BB instead of pushing UTG with zero fold EQ and getting overcalled.

      3)Overcalling ranges for shoves, i rarely seem to make the correct decisions when it comes to multiway all ins. But that is results orientated thinking!

      4)Steals from the button, what sort of fold EQ do i need vs 10BB stacks, want to do some EV math to make myself more secure in my decisions!

      And when im down i say...

      Known Players:
      Position:
      Stack
      UTG2:

      Preflop: Hero is UTG3 with T :spade: , T :club:
      UTG2 folds,
      Hero raises 2365 to 2565 (All In), 3 fold, CO calls (All In), 3 fold, Hero gets uncalled bet back

      Flop: (4590) Q :diamond: , J :heart: , 2 :diamond: (2 Players)

      Turn: (4590) A :club: (2 Players)

      River: (4590) 6 :spade: (2 Players)

      Final Pot: 4590

      Results follow (Highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of tens (Ts, Tc) --> (Ts, Tc, Qd, Jh, Ac)
      CO shows a pair of queens (Qh, Th) --> (Qd, Qh, Jh, Ac, Th)

      CO wins 4590 with a pair of queens (Qh, Th) --> (Qd, Qh, Jh, Ac, Th)


      Poker is definately profitable xD

      I had some misfortune on some final tables which demoralized me a bit, so i decided to play some STT SNG for something different.

      I started slowly and added to many tables to quickly, the area thats blocked is me playing 9-12 tables and the part after it is me just 4 tabling and being alot more aware of the sort of players around me. I need to work alot more on my game to have my auto pilot at good enough lvl it seems.
