Oh man since my last post I didn't realize how much sleep I needed. It's been awhile since I played late night poker and basically hibernated.

Saw Isildur1 a few days ago on FT going all in seven times in a row with his entire $12k br. He's a sicko x 10. It's good to see FT back in play.

Who did Gus lose too. He's one of my favorites, but everytime I watch em (before Black Friday) he was always bleeding chips.

I hope HSP and PAD come back now along with the lovely hosts.

I'm thinking about playing a couple of events. My problem is I usually get sloppy and unfocused after a couple of hours playing the big field tourneys. You gonna play any?

Definitely hear what you're saying. It's a real grind playing six hours only to bubble. Poker is a lot like MMA or any sport for that matter. It's all in the mind. You know an opponent wants to take your head off, so what do you do. Charge and brawl (think Durrr vs Isildur1), lay n pray (nit style like Howard Lederer or Chris Ferguson), counter with precision with a well rounded game (Phil Ivey, Antonious) or utilize experience as an upperhand like (Doyle, Eli Elizra, Johnny Chan, Phil Hellmuth.)

People don't realize there's many different styles of play in poker. So yah I consider poker a sport. Although TAGs are the best fit for tournies I really prefer the maniac mode in collecting as many chips as possible in the early stages rather than getting blinded out.

Investment wise there's so much value in the micro millions, but expect a very large field. A few interesting tournies to look at...

$5.50 KO - Nov. 22
$11 KO - Nov. 23
$5.50 $50k - Nov. 24
$1 for $15k - Nov. 24th
$11 Sunday Storm - Nov. 25
$22 $1 mill - Nov. 25

Not playing any tonight, but will probably play a few this week, and definitely the $1m GTD main event.

Lost a couple of micro million tournies, playing another. Won my entry fees and some playing heads up x 2.

Cashed 100ish out of 6,000+. That was fun.

Cashed another tourney; AK vs AA. Those are always fun.

Already in the money for another tourney. But I just doubled up the short stack with...guess what my AK vs AA...button vs big blind. A few minutes later I got AA and decided to flat a raiser to get more callers. Head up. Check called em down the river to a major double up!

Busted at 60ish out of 3,100+.

Back on the grind.

Cashed a measly $20 on another tourney. Went out the worst way possible. Set over set. Went from chipleader to poof! Break time.

Been playing some hands vs these bots tonight. The limit bot is, as expected, much more solid than the no limit bot. The NL bot is passive with his value hands post flop, is seemingly wildly inconsistent with his bet sizing (which probably makes his less exploitable but to an extent that it is likely -EV), and he has limp-folded the button twice. Granted I've only played him over a tiny sample ~200 hands, but this bot is definitely beatable.

Either way it's fun to play him. When playing an opponent like this who you know will not adapt to your pattern of play, but play what the bot thinks is the optimal strategy from a game theory standpoint, it makes you sharpen your mind and really put a lot of thought into basics like board patterns and bet sizing.

I have to say again, every decent HUNL player will beat this particular bot over a large sample. The limit bot is another story.

Might have to check it out. Bots won't ever be able to dominate humans unlike chess where all the moves are essentially pre-determined. I remember Phil Laak playing against an AI and beating it.

Sunday Million is coming up!
