Introductory Post And My Biggest Win To Date

By: Oku_Ha_FooLs @ 04:33 (EDT) / 258 / Comment ( 2 )

Hey guys!

Wadapppppppp well heres a lil about me and my poker career so far, as you may know im new here just found out about this whole thing today its pretty sweet so i thought id get in on some blogging and get to know some of you grinders :-P

Well im 21 been playing poker since i was about 18, started playing poker at some of the local pub poker leagues( biggest crapshoot league in the world) hahahah anyways i obviously knew nothing about poker back then all i knew was that i thought i was the absolute Shiiiet and had absoluteley no idea about grinders,cash games and other forms of poker :-P

Then later made friends with a dude at the league Cactusman07 hes a super sick MTT grinder lol but back then we were knobs and were absoluteley clueless as to what we were duin :-P hahah...........As it does curiosty eventually came over us and we both thought about taking poker seriously so we got to it str8 away..........continuiosly going busto putting in 100 a week getting owned playing MTTs hehe..........later we would find me spending more time at work then at poker and cactusman07 eventually got sick good at MTTs :-P

So instead of grinding i got to learning how to play the other games ect PLO,all the stud variations and all the limit games :) .........eventually got really really good at those and now i usually poon those MTTs when i have a chance to play em but usually my thing is live cash games :) (i have a loosing record online haha fuck variance thats all i can say)

So once i was old enuf to hit up the casino i was pretty much a regular :-P spendin a ton of time there grinding away its so amazing how soft live poker is :-P seriously sooo much easier to make $ playing live especially live mtts! so that was my thing and PLO cash games became my thing live.......Later caught the attention of a veery well known backer who bumpd heads with me playing 1/2 PLO, hehe i bluffd him off a set of Deuces on a J-9-2-6-10 board heheh made a good first impression..........At this point in my career i still had no clue about much things poker and unaware of the whole poker community that exists.................

This guy then later got in contact with me and introduced me to everyone it was pretty sick at the time :-P getting to know high stakes players, super good MTT grinders and also became freinds with the man who beat Durrrr for his 1st wsop bracelet :) Simon Watt he is seriously sickkkkkkkly good at holdem...... and amazed at how young some of these guys were! it was all mind boggling to me so there i was........I knew that i wanted to be playing poker for life and get really really good at it.. :-P

Eventually my work would all pay off when recently a known criminal billionare would come to town and hit up our local casino regularly he was known for going crazy in the high rollers room then fully turning up with his whole entourage at the poker room :-P i do have to admit he had some sick flavour to his dress style always wearing the sickest silk suits and coats :) we would all light up when we saw him! As he does the crazy Asian just loved to gamble so he reqeusted for the 5/10 200bb game to open and man were people fast to join heheheh..........

Then one day i decide to give this big game a shot and yeahp a big chunk of my roll is on the line hehe sit down with 2000$ and even before bill shows up i am up about 9000$ everything is hapning so fast im playing super good and have shown some massive bluffs :-P .........several hours later the man shows up with his enterouge and the only seat availabe is to my right wow my luck hes Drunk as fuck and hes all over the place! we all look while he pulls out a stack of cocolate chips, yes a stack of 10,000$ chips i had never even seen one before and he just throws them on the table like a boss haha trust me im equally scared and happy at the same time..........the table now has several established online pros and more pros show up for the reservation list............

As time goes by this crazy mother fucker is just making everyones nightmare and christmass at the same time hahhaha blind raising 200$-300$, calling 5 bet shoves with 10 high pre all ins pre with nothing just absolute crazy shit that u would not even see in a 5c/10c game hahah man i couldnt believe it...........with a couple hours left to go before the poker room closes i had grinded my stack up to about 13,000$........not prepared or aware with what was about to happen...yes i play a big big big hand with bill and it just happens to be the only pot he limps in his whole session omg so its folded round to him and he limps the whole table is obviously playing super tight and i complete from small blind with J-3 off suit..........

Flop comes J-2-3 i couldnt fucking beleive it hahah i was having an absolute party in my head while i slowly checked and looked at bills face! :-P he looked interested indeed............its checked around to him and he amazingly overbets the flop 350$ into a 60$ pot.......i made a value raise to about 750$ giving him rope to hang himself................. omg he jumps right for the noose hahah ALL IN and bam its buissness time CALL!!......the whole poker room is watching us and there are staff just trying to look at our cards before we could even reach for em hehe! :-P i flip over J3 for top 2 pair and he flips over 2-3 offsuit my gawd that was one of the most happiest moments in my life as i held and won the biggest pot ever in our local casino poker room 26,000$ odd, possibly the hugest pot i will ever win in my life haha soo amazed at wat just happend i held that chocolate chip in ore it was heavy and larger than all the other chips! not long after i left the casino with a couple 10K stacks in my pockets hehe........That would be the moment my career took a jumpstart :)

Now i mainly just play live cash games, i try to give MTTs online a go but generally i run bad and variance is fuked up........but i do tend to do really well in stud and mix game MTTs.......My freind cactusman07 is currently going thru some runbad :( but hes doin ok, he eventually got picked up by the anonomys man and is playing several big live MTTs around the place so hes allgood.

I guess my current goals in poker are to get much better at holdem and fix leaks in my game, it truly is the toughest game to master and definantly not my best one.....
I also want to be playing alot of the WCOOP mixed game events in a couple months hope those go ok...
And yeah just pretty much continue to make money in poker, of coarse also avoid going broke lol

well yeah currently im here in Fiji on holiday and seeing family, its beutiful here :) and the weather is frikn awsum.........not forgetting the fine ass females round here im telling you pussy here is easy haha

Well its been fun reminising about that day my career was established :-P and i do enjoy writing these blogs, i will continue to write up hand analysis and other things in life/poker...........

Thanks for reading :)
