The Maniac

By: abdi122 @ 00:46 (EDT) / 456 / Comment ( 1 )
Hello Everyone, Today Was a good day...I mean I finally got past 1650 (That's good)...I also got 3 back 2 back Cashs (Also Great)...I made some Incredible Folds (Which is always A+)...Then My 10pm game Came (And that's the game I'm really trying to understand)...

I'd like to first ask you all for your help in Catorgrizing players? I mean do you go by ranks/Points or do you actually observe them all, Exactly what Guide Lines do you go by? I ask this question, because there was this player (Who by the Way Donked me hard-core)...I really don't care about the hand (Well I'd be lying to say I don't care, but trying not to be result Orinated)...Long story Short, this players rank had him at 1650+, and I always Assumed players at this rank+Higher means there actually Decent/Semi Decent/Over all Well Grounded players...Now I'm just once again Confused If this is true for players at this stage, or is It Actually more inclined for players at the 1700+Rank, Exactly what Rank Should I start to give players A) More Well Deserving Rank (I mean When I run into a player that's Got a Decent Rank, and they do such Donkish Moves then How/What can I assume? That they got there by Sheer Luck, that there Rank, Isn't all that becasue of there play? I understand Concept of Luck/Variance, but some plays confuse the Mind? For instance I like to assume that with a Raise+2 callers, that someone out of the 3 has a Med pair+AK/AQ/AJs thrown in there, I also like to Assume that others would actually read/Understand that it's not an Over All Just play to Donk/Shove into 3 players on a low Board/Trying to steal OOP into 3 players (Is Not a GOOD PLAY)...So When this "Said" Player does such things, How do you Catorgorize that player? There Rank says one thing, there play says another thing?

I'm happy about my game thus far, It's not as high As I'd like my rank to be, but that's a different story...Over all the Month has been Good and it's not even Over yet, My goal to hit 1750+Is almost in Reach, I should be at like 1710 (Only reason, is because I got DONKED)...I mean it's easy to say you got Donked (Yet when you do Get "DONKED" On a Continoues basis it begs one to ask the Question, why do they even bother? Is it for the Sheer Purpose of actually holding players Back? Is it for the Purpose of "DONKING"? Is it for the Thrill of Gambling? Exactly why do they even bother playing? If not for the League Money then what for? Exactly what in there Life is worth them wasting so many+Hours+Playing so Horribly over and over and over again, when they realize they have no hope to Win the Money? They have no hope to better there game over all, So exactly what reason can one Have to play as awful as some players do? Don't get me Wrong I make some Questionable Calls, Weather it's to try to bluff a Player out, or It's to Get lucky and Stack (Yet I'm not calling shoves with my Questionable Hands am I)? Maybe I'm a Donk, Maybe My Rank only means I'm getting lucky+Good Variance, Maybe it's just my time for the Time Being, Maybe, Maybe, Maybe....

One thing is for sure though, I plan on Improving my game and taking down that $1500 soon enough, I also plan on doing it on a Regular basis, as for the Maniacs+ I can only hope you ppl the Best of Luck...

Unless it's against me :)
