A Poker Players Backpack(Sneak Peek Twitter Exclusive)

Whats In My Poker Backpack?
Going to the casino is all about being prepared. Some people are fine with  playing a five to eight hour live poker session and holding everything in their pockets. This is why I bring a small back pack. I usually have a number of things on me that I don't want in my pocket or coat.  My local casino, Hollywood Casino Indiana, can have reasonably long waits on any given day of the week, even if I reserve a seat ahead of time. So let me go ahead and share a few things I tend to bring.

Poker In 2012; Touching Base With All Of My Followers

December of 2011 was a busy time for me, so I would like to apologize to my fan base for being very inactive. The truth is I stopped playing online poker completely and moved over to the live play part time. In fact, I made over 3,000 dollars in the month of December playing twice a week. I played a mixture of tournaments and 1/2 cash tables. So far in the new year, I have netted 1,000 dollars. So as you can see I feel like live play is a more profitable experience over the possible U.S online field. On top of that, College studies have also been consuming much of time that is normally used to work on my fledgling little blog.

Optimisim From a US Professional Poker Player!

 I decided to let my buddy Marc write about his poker success and experiences! I thought it would be a great way to promote himself and keep other American poker players motivated to keep playing hard!! Enjoy his letter!

Hello Guys,

My name is Marc I live in Pompano Beach Fl right now. I have been playing poker professionally for 6 years. I started playing in 2004 after watching the main event on T.V. I was so clueless at the time I didn’t even know that they put up there on money. I thought ESPN just gave out those prizes. I have obviously come along way. I played play chips on party poker for 6 months or so. I actually started with 5,000 chips and built it up to 1 billion chips. Yes I had no life. I deposited $100 and lost it and another $50 and lost that. I decided to take one more shot and I did and never looked back. I started on 0.10/0.25 and made around $1,000 after that binked a $1 tourney for $500. After that I skipped 0.25/50 and played 0.5/1 and made around $2,000 or so. My semi break came when I jumped up to $2-4 one night and won $1,500. I ended up pounding out $17,000 more on 2/4. After that the government shut it down (2006 ) shut down. I took a most of the year off and didn’t play much probably made $10,000 on FT and Bodog. In 2008 I was making around $3,000 a month playing .5/1 and was somewhat content. Something really motivated me and I decided to start 8 table and did pretty well and ended up winning $40,000 which ranked me first on Absolute Poker 0.5/1. In 2009 I clocked in around 1,000 hours mostly 9 tabling and made around $80,000 which was second for my limit. 2010 started great and made around 30,000 the first 5 months. I had a rough break up which caused my to play less. During the government shutdown I luckily only had $1,500 on AP. I decided to play full time live and did that the last 6 months or so. I am waiting for government to legalize before I play again. I have never worked a day in my life and I thank the game of poker for that.

Hand Review: I made a terrible play but it worked out! Deep discussion required!

 Alright this is my first hand review! I decided to put a terrible hand on here that  way I could get a lot of in-depth discussion and criticism. A lot of Reddit readers also wanted to get some deep poker discussion going. Hopefully this satisfies and opens a lot up of talk!

So let me explain my play in this hand. I was BB and called the pot odds despite being out of position to call as well. I hit my five and bet putting this guy on over cards. I was re-raised on the flop, however this villain likes to re-raise a lot more then they should. So I went over the top! I bad beat the bastard and probably paid for it the next hand because I got KK and lost to QTo.

What is the estimated loss of equity making this play long term?
What are other potential options when PLAYING this hand?
Anything else is up for discussion as well!
