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!

How to Build a Poker Bankroll


To be entirely honest, starting a bankroll from scratch is pretty difficult. Sure there are freerolls floating around the net all the time. You can try and win one of those in order to start your bank roll but I prefer my method better. The merge network allows players to enter into a series of steps tournaments for free everyday. Each member gets ten tickets for entry into the steps. There are three steps. If you win the third step then a dollar will be deposited into your account that can be used towards real money poker games.

Is online poker rigged? Real answers – not just theories.

This is a guest post by Ryan over at We hope you enjoy his article!

Is online poker rigged? Real answers – not just theories.
Browse any online poker forum and you’ll come across a number of threads where this ‘million dollar question’ is debated. You’ll see a whole spectrum of opinions, from the spectacularly neurotic: “just because I’m paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get me”, and the devil’s advocate: “I’m not saying it’s rigged but it would be possible to rig a game by… ”, to the staunch believer: “there is simply no reason why a poker site would want to rig the game – it makes no sense”.

Carbon Poker Is Still Not Accepting New US Players


I want to apologize to all of my potential clients that were excited about my offers and promotions for Carbon Poker which is located on the Merge Network. As a poker player over on Carbon Poker and Players Only, I was able to continue playing poker. However Carbon stopped accepting new American players back in July. I knew this but was misinformed about the situation. I was told that they only paused US poker service for 4-6 weeks and then would resume American player acceptance. I was then told by several good sources that they were now accepting Americans. However his is not true. For the time being Carbon Poker is not accepting any new American poker players! I will be updating my ads and reviews to reflect this knowledge. Cake Poker and Bodog are still currently accepting American players until I find out otherwise. This error will not happen again and I appreciate all of the positive feedback from my blog. If your still interested in online poker or even live casino please continue your readership! I more then appreciate just having people stumble upon my blog and read my little bit of knowledge. In other news my zero to 10k challenge is going very well! I have 100 dollars in my account after one week. Hopefully variance does me well and I can continue my positive progress with some expected ups and downs!

Tribute To Steve Jobs From A Poker Player

Dear Players,

One of the most iconic men in the past 30 years passed away today, October 5th 2011. His name is Steve Jobs and nearly every single person in the modern world has been touched by him in someway. In every electronic device you currently own there is influence from Steve. Jobs gave us the most important tool we will ever use, the computer. Without the Apple and Jobs, how would we have ever have moved our Wagon and family across the Oregon Trail? We as poker players should be most happy with Jobs. Without him, poker would still be in Vegas or in a smoke filled Veteran Hall. We owe him for bringing the personal computer to the world and allowing us to play online poker. Without him and his influence on every single device you own, we wouldn't be playing poker in our pajamas at five in the morning. The WSOP and other venues would not be broadcast on ESPN or NBC. In fact most of us would have never learned the game if it were not for his innovation that dominates the modern world. To keep this short and sweet, thank you Steve Jobs! You were never a perfect being but neither are we. The world is blessed by your intellect and forward thinking. Mankind will be eternally great-full because of the Modern Computer. Everyone please take a moment to reflect on what that man gave us! We owe him that much.

Matt Dawson

How To Play Texas Holdem Poker

I will be using the article on how to play poker for now until I have the time to write my own.

Betting structures

A standard hold 'em game showing the position of the blinds relative to the dealer button
Hold 'em is normally played using small and big blind bets – forced bets by two players. Antes (forced contributions by all players) may be used in addition to blinds, particularly in later stages of tournament play. A dealer button is used to represent the player in the dealer position; the dealer button rotates clockwise after each hand, changing the position of the dealer and blinds. The small blind is posted by the player to the left of the dealer and is usually equal to half of the big blind. The big blind, posted by the player to the left of the small blind, is equal to the minimum bet. In tournament poker, the blind/ante structure periodically increases as the tournament progresses. (In some cases, the small blind is some other fraction of a small bet; e.g., $10 is a common small blind when the big blind is $15, and still other tables may use two equal blinds. The double-blind structure described above is a commonly used and more recent adoption.)

Poker Hand Ranking

This is actually something that I get asked all the time. So here is a quick look at the Poker hand guide.

Royal Flush

A straight from a ten to an ace with all five cards of the same suit. In poker all suits are ranked equally.

Straight Flush

Any straight with all five cards of the same suit.

Four of a Kind

Any four cards of the same rank. If two players share the same Four of a Kind, the bigger fifth card (known as the kicker) decides who wins the pot.

Full House

Any three cards of the same rank together with any two cards of the same rank. Our example shows "Aces full of Kings" and it is a bigger full house than "Kings full of Aces."


Any five cards of the same suit (not order). The highest card of the five determines the rank of the flush. Our example shows an Ace-high flush, which is the highest possible.


Any five consecutive cards of different suits. Aces can count as either a high or a low card. Our example shows a five-high straight, which is the lowest possible straight.

Three of a Kind

Any three cards of the same rank. Our example shows three-of-a-kind Aces, with a King and a Queen as side cards - the best possible three of a kind.

Two Pair

Any two cards of the same rank together with another two cards of the same rank. Our example shows the best possible two-pair, Aces and Kings. The highest pair of the two determines the rank of the two-pair.

One Pair

Any two cards of the same rank. Our example shows the best possible one-pair hand.

High Card

Any hand not in the above-mentioned hands. Our example shows the best possible high-card hand.

Do You Possess These Great Professional Poker Player Qualities

Let me go ahead and say that I am not a professional poker player. Its very unlikely that I will every become one. Despite that let my ego slide in and say, I posses all of these qualities and many of you also have these qualities. The difference is how often you call on them to help your game day in an day out. Lets jump right in here and lay out the qualities all of the greats have.

How To Quickly Become A Better Poker Player Part II

Welcome to part two on how to quickly become a better poker player. Im glad your back for the second part because the first five points were important but I thought another article was needed to help make your rise to poker stardom more complete. Drum Roll please, and here are the next five points to get your game going in the right direction.

6. The Community Cards Are Very Important

Your hole cards and the betting pattern of your opponents is obviously very important. I also hope you know the flop, turn, and river are just as important. You need to learn the odds of drawing the flush or the straight on the turn and river. You can't just be a calling station because you need a 7 to complete your ten high straight. Pay attention to these community cards because every card could hurt or help you. This point will bringing you to the topics of pot odds, implied odds, and other statistical methods to help you make the proper decision based on the flop, turn, and river. Don't call a bet because you want the next card. Call the bet because the price is right based on how much you could win and the odds that you will draw that card. We want to earn money not pray for it!

Deciding Which Poker Variant Is Best For You

Now which type of game do I play?
Once you have learned how to play Texas Holdem Poker(or the other styles) and deposited money you must choose a variant. The three major variants are Cash, Multi-table Tournaments, and Sit n Go Tournaments. Picking the one that fits your goals and playing style will be very important in your quest to produce a profit. Each style has its own advantages and disadvantages. So lets break down all three to help you pick.

Looking for Free Poker Software?

The only true free poker software
Like you, I started playing online poker without the aid of software in my game or study. I began a long journey through Google searching and searching for great poker software that was free.
Do you know what I found? A few offers for free software that had lengthy conditions and Poker stove. Poker stove is not an in game software. So it wont help you while you play the tables. However it really is a great poker calculator that allows you to put up different situations and hands in order to better understand the odds.

Staying Focused During Online Poker

The great part about online poker is the ability to do other things while you play. If you walk into my poker den, you will find me eating half a pizza, listening to the baseball game, and keeping a Facebook tab open. We can do all of these things because were at a desk in our home. Playing poker at the casino limits us to what we can do.
There is one big problem that will hold most online poker players back. Staying focused on the tables we play becomes neglected very quickly when Joey Votto smacks one out of the park. We must learn how to stay focused in order to increase our profit. Lets face it poker is fun, but its much more fun when we win. Players must discipline themselves enough to keep that focus despite external tasks.

Indiana State Poker Championship at Hollywood Casino

Good morning Ohio! Its going to be a hot one in the Indiana/Ohio/Kentucky region today, so stay inside and crank up the AC while you pray for zero power outages! I don't know if any of my loyal readers are going to end up playing in the Indiana State Poker Championship but I will be there! Unfortunately due to some medical bills stemming from a bull riding accident and my current student loans I will only be playing the $350 + $45 No Limit Hold'em (Deep Stack)(250KGuaranteed)(Re-Entry) and more then likely one of those pesky satellite tournaments for a main event seat. The winner of the ISPC main event will also receive a ticket to the WPT at Hollywood Casino! I'm very much looking forward to the action and will be tweeting none stop when time allows for it. I don't know what the rules on using cell phones will be (as they vary from event to event) but I hope I can keep everyone updated on the action in the Cincinnati Tri-State area. The event will be running all week from August 11-21. The full schedule may be found at Indiana State Poker Championship Schedule

Top five ways to lose money playing poker!

So you play a little poker after dinner while you wife watches reruns of Everybody Love Raymond? Why not try to improve your game by a little study. So here are a few tips to get you started with another great top five list. Yah I know a top five list is unusual, hell I could give you 100 to save you money in poker but Im giving you five key tips.

Top Five ways to lose money at poker:

10. Don't chase every hand to the river. The excitement of a big card landing is fun but in the end will be a losing strategy
9.Don't play while your drunk, tired, hungover, or doing something else like work.
8. You can't ever tilt. This is a sure way to drain that 50 dollar bank roll from the credit card your wife doesn't know about. Your deep in a game and you get busted down to half your stack on a bad beat. You have to remember you could double back up with a bit of timing and patient. Get back into the game and forget the hand!
7. Playing to many hands will most defiantly make you a losing poker player. Tighten up a bit and you will improve significantly. Don't play two random cards because you have a hunch and you feel it. Instead wait for good cards for good positions and play those!
6. If you don't play position poker you will get caught raising hands you shouldn't be raising with from early position. So you have TJ and your under the gun. Don't be the player that raises such a mediocre hand from that position. There is a very good chance someone will re-raise you and temp you into the pot. Just fold here and wait for a better position to play the hand.
5. You can never ever play poker with the mind set that you will win it back. If its gone its gone. If your depositing every week because you have extra money and this is fun for you fine. However if your digging your credit card into a hole then stop depositing your just giving better players your money! Save yours and work on your poker skills in stead of believing poker is a true luck game.

Good luck guys! I hope this short list is a gem and will get you on the right direction while playing poker! See you on the felt! Oh and maybe I wont be taking your money if you listen to a few of these tips ;)

My poker name

Just to explain my name...POTHEADWOMAN

I started reading all of these poker books and some of them kept talking about online table image. I thought that a pot smoking woman would be taken less seriously them a guy named Mr.Lawgrad or IdontdrinkwhenIplay. I don't know if it changes anyone's perception of me at a table in a negative or positive way but I have always convinced myself that if variables are to change I want to be the one manipulating them. Another way I do this is by jabbering crazy things in the chat box frequently. Even while playing with 2 or 3 tables.

Anyways just a random "tool" I picked up from a book that may do nothing lol.

If I ever change my name to another site it will be screamingfemininetiltbaby

My Adventure

Okay my adventures are not glorious..except this one time with a paintball grenade. However let me explain myself. I am a 25 yr old college male from Cincinnati Ohio. I drink but do not smoke pot. I started playing online poker for real money just on a whim because I was bored. I have been playing for about three months now. At first I deposited 20 dollars here and there with ups and downs like any new idiot player. I then discovered a little program called calculatem pro and a few used books that help me establish an ABC type game. So at that point the deposits lasted longer. Finally I found cards chat, moshman, and PT3. I am now a winning poker player with over 500 games logged on bodog.

This month I have played over 100 3.30 10 handed sit n gos with....tada an ROI of 37.94. Overall I am running a 5% ROI. My current April ITM is 44.44. I have had swings and such like everyone else but I am beginning to feel I have got to a point where I will be producing more then I am consuming financial in the online world of texas holdem. FYI.. February was a positive month where I took 20 and turned it into 100. March was a low positive ROI. April has been a huge boost to my confidence. I will continue to study hard. I will continue to poop and read moshman. I will continue to find every edge possible in this game until some jackass named isildur(LOTR unoriginal) becomes some stupid asshole named isildur.

I digress..

Currently the world of bodog is becoming to short sighted of my goals. I plan on moving to fulltilt or pokerstars in the next month or two in order to expand my multitabling and to play a larger pool of fish. Not to mention they have a whole different sng structure that I plan on trying out.

Any suggestions on a site? I need rakeback. It will increase my ROI dramatically. From what I understand fulltilt can be rakedback at 27% or so. So if Im paying .30 per game with 500 games logged that equals out to 40.5 dollars. Which is a huge bankroll boost to my 300 dollar account.

Current goals:

Continue the transition from 3.30 10 man to 6.60 10 man
Master 6.60 10 man and move to fulltilt
Increase from 2 table max to 4 table max
Work on more practice sessions with SNgWHIZ
Review CChat HH and post more HH.

Maybes: Find a coach or get coached for free ???
Stop being full of myself
Stop yelling in the chatbox when my KK loses to A2
Purchase a better computer(more tables better database speed)

Quit my job
Become good enough to coach
provide useful advice to new players

Hope you enjoyed my random post

If anyone wants to come party it up in the Nati just hit me up and we can drink play poker, bar hop, disc golf, paintball( ex pro) street hockey, shag some fly balls, double cream...cough.. or help me cheer for the reds!! Peace out my gangstas

FYI I didn't bother to read through this just go to hell if you cant figure it out!

Sharkscope ROI

Well this is what sharkscope has on me! A 6% ROI! However you have to keep in mind my friend has hacked my account and has been playing a ton of games on here as well as draining my account. MOST of those games other then the 3.30 sng are from him. As you can see my bolt 3.30 SNG turbo is a 10% ROI. If you have any questions about my skill please dont be afraid to write me and ask questions!!! I am also willing to coach people as well!

How to Steal Blinds From a Winning Poker Player

Okay Im playing against a winning player with 10% ROI over 2000+ matchs of 10 handed 3 dolla sng.

He is a tight aggressive player obviously

The question I have can I take advantage of a guy who steals 8% of the time and so far has folded 12/12 steals. I assume his range is calling only 10% or so. should I just hammer wide with the steals on him and fold most of his reraises? Surprisingly though he might be tight passive because he only has a AFq of 17. What should I do??

Well here is what I should do! I should steal steal steal! This guy preys on bad players! His style is tight but passive. He only gets aggressive when he has a premium hand or when his number if blinds will diminish his chances of placing in the money(ie 100 bb or less) So I can easily  steal from him with just about anything. A guy like this is probably also multi tabling so he will be paying less attention to each player at every table he is at. So guys just steal wide on this guy and when he comes back at you fold unless you have a premium hand AQ, JJ+.

Its to nice to play!

So here we are in the middle of summer and its about 100*f outside with the index. Its far to nice during the summer to be playing 40 sngs a day. So I will be back here posting like a maniac once the weather cools down. Im also not playing because one of my best friends took advantage of me and drained ALL of the money in my account! Thank god I had recently withdrawn money or else you would see me on the 12 o clock news as a murder suspect.

Just to let everyone know and to remind myself just in case I forget,  I'm a member over at the kick-ass site  So here are a few interesting posts by me.

Regarding pokertracker stat graphs

SNG whizquiz

Hand Ranges

Obvious mistake

BB: 2,810.00
UTG: 2,910.00
Hero (BTN): 2,605.00
SB: 6,675.00

Hero posts ante 25.00, SB posts ante 25.00, BB posts ante 25.00, UTG posts ante 25.00, SB posts SB 100.00, BB posts BB 200.00

Pre Flop: (400.00) Hero has Jc Js

fold, Hero raises to 600.00, SB calls 500.00, fold

Flop: (1500.00, 2 players) 7s 8h Qh
SB bets 2,000.00, Hero calls 1,980.00 and is all-in

Turn: (5460.00, 2 players) As

River: (5460.00, 2 players) 5h

Hero shows Jc Js (One Pair, Jacks) (PreFlop 54%, Flop 10%, Turn 5%)
SB shows Ks Qs (One Pair, Queens) (PreFlop 46%, Flop 90%, Turn 95%)
SB wins 5,460.00

Okay so as you can see I got a premium hand. I made two mistakes. I should have shipped the hand to add fold equity. However that may have not made the difference because his stack was huge and he may have played any decent ace or king. So the next mistake was obviously calling his 2000 all in inducing bet. I thought he was full of shit for some reason. Typically I can get away from a premium hand if the flop improves. I honestly had no reason to believe that he didnt have a queen with a handsome kicker. So Lesson learned. Get away from a hand when its down.

Welcome or Hello

Okay lets start off and tell you about me. I play bodog poker 3.30 SNG 10 handed turbo tournaments. I play 20-30 a week. I rarely multitable and if I do its only 2 tables at a time. I tried 4 once and was not yet able to handle the insanity.

Sharkscope stats: 378 games, avg. stake 3.00, avg. ROI -3%, ability 54.

So no I am not making money. However I am breaking even at poker right now. I have 89 dollars in my account, however I started at 20.

Looking at the picture will give you all of my sharkscope info.
The next photo is from my pokertracker stats under details.

Okay glad I got my first post out of the way. Its not organized obviously. Once I get the idea of what I really want to say ill start posting a format everyday or so about what is going on in poker world for me.
