Boobs Just a Quick POKER Example of Why to Never Quit

At 6:30pm I bought into a poker tournament in the largest poker room in Florida.

Around 8pm I got sucked out on the river after getting called all in after the flop - before the turn.

Lost my buy in ($70) so I went down stairs to the cash games.

Sat down at 1/2 NLHE
Ended up running into monster hands whenever I tried getting all of my chips in the pot.

Lost my first buy in, no biggie... Just $100.

Bought in for $200 more and started playing like I'm Tom Dwan, it worked until I started running into monster hands and my over-playing mid-pocket pairs.

Well, by around 1am I was down to $25. Now, I wasn't about to rebuy again, heck no... I needed to work on my game, I was obviously tilting from the earlier tourney... So I did.

I played tight aggressive, and ended up stacking up then losing my stack on a big hand... OVER & OVER.

I was down to $22 once, then back up to $80... Then I had a set of 9's run into a set of Jacks. Luckily the guy that I was heads up with was rooting for me to come back so he didn't put me all in... He left me $12...

Well, I grinded it out from that $12 around 3am into $420 at 6:30am when I got up.

Never, ever, ever quit.

If you decide you're going to do something (in my case: play better and make my money back) DO IT WITH ALL OF YOUR ENERGY.

I only made $50 today, but it was the most memorable $50 I've ever made on the felt.

Now, if you excuse me I have to change clothes... I have a double header (baseball) in two hours and I'm the center fielder.

tl;dr - "I made $50 in 12 hours playing poker."



edited to add: but it's cool, as long as you had fun. It's not always about making money.

Battling back from nearly going out in poker is an exhilarating experience. I was once in a tourney in one of the big online rooms where I started with the usual $1500 in chips to go down as low as $80 only to battle back to more than $60k. If I had done nothing else but sit back and chill I would have easily placed but I was drinking and playing like a douche and still went out on the bubble, lol.

Anyways, anything is possible when toying with lady luck. Now I feel like playing some poker.

Hardrock?

Have been dying to play there . . .it's only 10 mins away, but school is kicking my ass. My friend goes a few times a week, though. I saw that 1/2 is a max buy-in of 100, which is wayyyy low IMO, so I'm wondering how it changes the game. What's the typical pre-flop raise?

Palm Beach Kennel Club, also there are no more buy-in restrictions as of 7/1/2010.

The pots get pretty big for mid stakes, this was my take home Saturday last week... I bought in for the min... $100

Btw, good job OP, never quit. One time I was down to $12 just like you did and made a huge comback. I know exactly how you feel.

Gambling is one of those situations where "working hard" for longer more often than not doesn't produce results. In anything other than poker, the house always has the edge. Even in poker, you still have to beat the rake as well as all the other players who are "trying to relieve the suckers of all their cash".

I used to live with a guy who was a blackjack dealer here in Melbourne around 10 years ago. They had just introduced a loyalty card and could track the amount of cash won & lost with a fair amount of accuracy as most of the pit bosses would update the amount players cashed in and cashed out at the higher limit tables.

One asian dude (and it was always asian dudes) won around $750k over the course of 6 months, because he just would never give up. He would chase, chase, chase and stay there for marathon sessions until he won all his money back plus more.

Of course he gave it all back in the next 3 months for exactly the same reasons.

Are you trying to advise people to never, ever, ever quit at gambling or to never quit at some kind of ambition in life? If you mean gambling, then sorry, but that's fucking stupid advice. "Chasing bets" is very dangerous and a lucky escape should act as a valuable lesson. If you do find a system that works in gambling then if you profit then you profit, but if you lose then it is usually a sensible move to cut your losses and move on. In sports betting, with a big enough bankroll it would probably be possible to beat the bookie over time with high stakes on low risk events, but is there such a thing as a near certainty in poker?! Sorry for the rant, got a bit of a past with gambling.

There's no such thing as certainty if you take any ~4 hour poker session. Poker is a game of skill though. Play enough hands skillfully against weaker opponents and the skill factor overtakes luck by a huge margin in poker.

Poker has less of a luck factor than betting on sports, unless you have some kind of inside knowledge that no one else knows about, rigged fight, etc...
