      Hi :) I am back to poker again :) I was having aim not to play poker until I find a job since march 1, and finally I was lucky enough to find it :) After few weeks at work (not thrown out) I decided maybe its enought to live without poker, it has been already 3,5 months since my last play online. But I sometimes played live with friends with no money, just chips and drinking beer. I didn't even believe I will stay out from online poker until I find a job, or also I didn't believe I can find a job. Still this is just a beginning of my job, so don't know, maybe I should still concentrate 100% on it (learn new things and so on) because I don't want to be thronw out after my probationary period. But thats few months more without online poker.

      Ok its probably enough with my story. Now I have to remember how to play poker.

      Turn: He is so agresive, but betting small, so I decided I migh be ahead 1/6 times.

      River - now his bet is bigger but still his AF is high, so I called. Also I took a note after the hand.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Yeah, was kinda wondering where did you disappear. :D Although I am pretty sure you don't have to spend that much time on poker and if you have nothing to do then you can still try to play some poker. :) But definitely if it's somewhat important not to spend time in poker then you could pick a small break from poker. Although myself I couldn't see doing that. :f_biggrin:

      Guess I would still make the fold on river. I just don't see many hands what we beat there. It's very likely an Ace with a better kicker. And about the note I guess there is not much you can take if you see him having Ax with better kicker. :(

      Don't understand is his AF like 38?:D Or it's aggression frequency?

      Best regards.

      I guess with your poker skills you can easily play it as a pro, maybe you do that, I don't know, and have a good life in Estonia (you live there as I remember).

      Thats AF :) I don't use agression frequency stat :) probably he rarely called over his 61 hand sample size. I have seen earlier such player.

      Nah, I am still a student who has his last year of master degree to go. :) And after that we will see what happen. And nope I am not taking myself as a pro. :D Most of the "pro"s who actually think they are pros but they truly ain't. :)

      Many people take it differently to play as a pro. If you playing a lot of poker or some mid-stakes I wouldn't say you is a pro. :D But rather those who have had a lot of experience and managed to get to the very high stakes from lower stakes. :)

      Depends on what the definition of pro is :) others say that pro is such, who can live of poker winnings. Of course in some countries even me could be a pro then playing NL10 :D

      But actually even if you don't count yourself as pro, you could live in estonia from poker with your current skills :)
