So, just got knocked out by an All-In Bully in a PSO Skills League Tourney.

Josssie777 from the Netherlands.

He was winning on pure luck, taking down much stronger hands with turn and river suck-outs.

I lost out A-10 suited to his A-J off.

Oh well. And, JFTR, I am not saying my A-10 suited was a great hand. Just was hard to believe him, or that his luck would hold out for yet another hand. All-in with anything.

Just passing on what to expect if you play this guy.

Welcome to the Asylum,

Just hang tough MrHub. That's something we all have to deal with on our rise to the top of the leaderboard.

"Sometimes you get the bear, and sometimes the bear gets you"

All poker is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him.

lol,,,anyway GL in the league,,,hope to see you at or near the top.,,,,

Keep on Folding,
>Dem

Thank you, Dem.

I have been practicing my Zen patience this week. It's been paying off, actually.

I used to play a lot, and win consistently, before moving to work out of the country in a place where online poker was blocked. I missed 3-1/2 years of game play, and the change in dynamics of play have been very difficult to figure out and adjust to. That's why I decided to go the PSO route - so, I can learn the right way to play the game in today's game environment - as opposed to when I last played in 2006.

I am beginning to figure it out. I think. :-)

Very good,,,I just went lookin for you in the 1730 PSO tourney,,,,saw you got knocked out early. I wanted to watch you play a little bit,,,,but you were gone. anyway, you don't need to knock the rust off all by yourself..

Visit the Forum on a regular basis, Select Forum Controls>Last Post and keep up with some indepth poker theory. You'll soon see that there are a few regular contributors who could write their own book if they wanted to,,,

Any issues you have,,,post them and watch what happens,,,it's way good.

Yeah, I got knocked out by the guy described above.

I finished 92nd day before yesterday out of 1306.

I plan to play as many PSO Skill Tourneys as I can this month. This will be facilitated by my wife being out of town later this month. ;-)

And, thank you for the words of encouragement. I appreciate them greatly.

It appears somebody has been reading the works of Sun Tzu. Wise words indeed and good advice on the poker tables.

the way to deal with them....

let them win a bunch of small pots, sit back and wait for a super-premium hand, let them double you...... if they're not out yet, then repeat until they're gone.

One day in a final table (9 players) I saw a player who needed to leave and he decided to start going all-in instead of becoming absent, was all-in in all hands and won the tourney, this is poker =D
