Worst Day, Rant (sort of)
Trav94, Nov 06 2014
So I need to vent. Go from having a 13 buy in day, to dropping 18 buy ins in less then 36 hours. Didn't even think it was possible to lose this much in such a short period of time. Ran like complete shit, tilted off a couple buy ins as well. Fuck I didn't even play that bad I just couldn't hold, couldn't get there with draws. Every fucking hand was a cooler. Bleh.
Fire away LP on how no one cares and Im terrible. Im ready for it.
$55 Red Spade Open backer
Trav94, Oct 26 2014
This is super last minute, but if I could get backed for the Red Spade Open in like an hour. That'd be cool. Never really been backed or staked before. No markup or anything (not sure if markup is applicable when seeking a full stake?)

Improving my shortstack/turbo SNG play
Trav94, Sep 12 2013
So I play the $1, and .50c 90 player turbo's on stars. My shortstack play has come a long way, but there's obviously a lot of improvement that can happen. I've fooled around with ICM calculator on PT4, and looked at some Nash equilibrium charts and what not. Both have helped.
Does anyone have any tips or anything? Any guides or resources on improving shorstack/turbo sng play would be great.
SNG/MTT Bankroll Management
Trav94, Aug 23 2013
So I've built my roll playing micro stakes cash to $200. I've always enjoyed tournament/sng play more then cash, but I think cash (at least for me) has helped me learn the basics of poker better then tournaments/sng's would have.
Anyway, so I really feel ready and want to transition to mttsng's and some mtt's. What kind of brm should I use for these games? I was thinking 100 buy ins minimum for mtt's, and 200 buy ins for sngs? So I'd play the $1 and $1.50 45/90 man sngs, with occasional $2.50 180 mans just trying to bink one. Also play mtt's no bigger then The Big $2.20 for ex, with occasional $3.30 and $4.40 shots.
I'd build the roll to to about $625 or so, and transition to just playing the $2.50 180 mans and tournaments no bigger then $5 with occasional shots at Sunday Storm for ex. Does this sound like an ok plan? Also, any advice for playing games would also be greatly appreciated.

So I moved up to 5NL today. I noticed that people 3bet a lot more, at least in zoom. I'm still stuck in the 2NL mentality of only 3betting AK, TT + because there's no point in 3betting weaker hands as nobody folds. Like I said, people seem to 3bet more, and also seem somewhat capable of making folds when they are 3bet.
What's a general, good 3betting range to use at Zoom 5NL? Also I assume light 4betting has also become viable.
Trav94, Jun 06 2013
So this past week I've been 4 tabling Zoom 2NL. Is it just me or is everyone who plays zoom either the biggest fish/calling station or the biggest nit. I'm 18bb/100 over 15k hands this week... It either feels like I can cbet these guys to death and steal the blinds, or they call me down with 2nd pair or tptk on a drawy board every time. Do people just nit up because it's so easy to fold and wait for big hands like AK,QQ+?
Tips for micro stakes HU sng's
Trav94, May 19 2013
So I've been playing the $1.50 hyper hu sng's on stars recently. Been making steadily making a small profit over about 30 of them. I'm just wondering if anyone could give me some tips and advice for playing the micro stakes hyper hu sng's. Also I think the rake is kind of high? So I should be looking to move up asap no?
FTP Pre Black Friday
Trav94, May 12 2013
So I recently finished my deposit bonus on Pokerstars, so I transfered my bankroll to FTP to get a bonus there. I play 5NL, and have noticed FTP doesn't have that big of a player base right now, but did before Black Friday from what I hear. For example at peak times there's maybe 15-20 tables going at 6max 5NL and on average maybe 8-10. I was just wondering what the traffic was like pre Black Friday, especially at the stake I play. Just curious.
Question about FTP deposit bonus
Trav94, May 04 2013
So I finished my bonus on Pokerstars. I was wondering if I transfer to FTP if I would be able to claim a bonus there? Or do I have to make a deposit to get a bonus.
