Adventures of $irUlrich

my so called "poker career" :) this is my story.
Send PM



PS - $357 - $150(player transfer cashout) = $157

FTP Sneaky Savings- $106

Vacation Freeroll, well, almost....

75% of my vacation expenses were covered by PS. Thanks PS! yeah boy! I want surfing to be my new vice. It was more fun than I imagined. I like the idea of challenging the waves and the roar of the waves sound so peaceful. Almost melancholic. I have applied something I learned in surfing to Poker. Whenever you're losing you're balance, you need to bend your knees to regain it. It's the same with Poker when it comes to tilt. Whenever you got stacked because of a bad beat or a bad call, Don't splash the rest of your chips and jump into the shark-infested river. You still have to protect what is left and continue to play with logic and patience. Boy, am i getting matured or what?! LOL, it seemed to work for me when I got back.

WiFi on Hotel and Bus

I made a deal with myself that I AM NOT GOING TO PLAY while on vacation. But as soon as I found out that there's WiFi connection on the bus, I quickly log on using my mobile and played 1 12 players SNG. I just can't help it hahaha. I was also thinking I can make extra cash but it backfired because I lose. hahaha. So I went to rest my poker brain. After we arrived at the hotel, the front desk has a sign that says "Free WiFi". BANG! but I didn't play immediately hahaha. I enjoyed the day 1st and played another SNG and lose again. hahaha. I won my last game there on  a 12 player format during my last day there. In total, I played a total of 3 games while on vacation. I was up by $10. Pathetic isn't it? LOL, well at least... it's better than losing $21 while on vacation.

Sucking at Live

Yesterday was my 1st time this year to play live poker in a poker club. I played 2 home games this year but I wouldn't really consider it "live" poker as the my friends and I play for fun and not for money. Anyway, If you have read one of my posts which I'm sure you did not LOL, I played last december and lose PHP3k and got back even online. Well, this time it's different. I was allowed to lose. I sold $75 1st and used that to play live. It came from my winnings here in PS. There is only 1 dilemma. I've been playing 6 max everyday, all day and now I needed to play a PHP10-20 cash game full ring. As soon as I played, I was the loose one. There was a high "tight requirement" there. It seems like players there were over protecting their stacks. and I thought I was the tight one. I won only 1 big pot with Qs and lose 2 because of slow playing. I was burned for $75. If there's something I learned during my 1st live session in a full ring this year, it's this. Bet with the best hand! bet hard and get paid/burned hard. Or should I tread lightly? hmmmmmmmmmmm....

Defeating January

Slow and steady feb did work for me quite well as I was up 40% in terms of USD selling compared to last month's sale. I was able to go to a vacation and pay unnecessary expenses/costs. Pokerstars is my life buffer! See you at the tables guys!
