      Hi all.
      I m poker player with a plan to fight on leaderboard at Pokerstars Battle of Planet.
      My goal is to finish in top 100 (top 10) on first 3 planets:
      Buy in range: $1-$2.99 Mercury
      Buy in range $3-$4.99 Mars
      Buy in range $5-$9.99 Venus

      Well its not really important how this leaderboard works because i will not write about this.

      I will write about bad beats i will get at my work. You will see how hard this job can be, you will see how bad beat i get in real time.

      I dont tilt, unless i get hammered heavy. I use pokertracker and play perfect SNG strategy, my pushes are 95% +ev, unless is had decision.

      Why i decided to open this blog with you guys?
      I wanted to share my experience in game, wanted to show what could happen to you in SNG, so you be ready for this kind of bad experience. I want you guys discuss my bad beats.

      And at last wish me good luck and hit me with some encouragement when you see me posting 3 bad beats in same minute.

      As well i have my own poker blog or lets call it a journal were i review my weekly play, how much i earn and sometimes if i collect enough hands i review a players.
      Bad beats i will post:
      I will not post races or bad plays, only were i m clear favorite. Were i lost more than 2000 chips or i got busted out. I will not post HU bad beats.

      This is NOT a bad beat. It's 65/35. Indeed he called light but you are not that clear of a favorite. I consider bad beats 4 outers at most.

      Nope, still not a bad beat. You're about a 2 to 1 favourite. Moron call, but not a bad beat. Try again.

      This is a bad beat. Enjoy!

      I suggest we stop with a bad beat discussion, since wikipedia says:

      In poker, bad beat is a subjective term for a hand in which a player with what appear to be strong cards nevertheless loses. It most often occurs where one player bets the clearly stronger hand and their opponent makes a poor call that eventually "hits" and wins. There is no consensus among poker players as to what exactly constitutes a bad beat and often players will disagree about whether a particular hand was a bad beat.

      How can you start a bad beat thread, and then not want to discuss what constitutes a bad beat. Seems odd to me. If you think getting it in as a 2 to 1 favourite and losing is a bad beat, you'll be spending more time posting than playing! :D

      Ok guys i didn't open thread to talk about bad beats, please check first topic and see whats this about.

      Its about me playing almost whole day and posting bad beats in my blog. Wanted to start something so in a week or month people can come here and see if they are ready to take a pressure as a whole day poker player.

      My goal is to finish in top 100 (top 10) on first 3 planets:
      Buy in range: $1-$2.99 Mercury
      Buy in range $3-$4.99 Mars
      Buy in range $5-$9.99 Venus

      Placing well on these leaderboards is just about who is the biggest luckbox in a given week, at least on the low orbits.

      Finished 11th in Mars once. That week it was all about skill. Not managed it since. Some lucky bastards always beat me!
