Okay I have to say this... Slevin, I don't have anything against you whatsoever.. I really would like to see you succeed as I hope for everyone on this forum to succeed. You seem to be really intrigued by poker and trying really hard to learn the game; however, you seem to have a really screwed idea of how the game works and what it entails.
I've seen numerous posts from you saying things, such as:
"I intend to increase my BR by 4% each day!"
"You'll be taking a regs money in 4 weeks!"
"Do you wanna play me HU4ROLLZ!!"
It's not gonna happen as fast as you think Slevin. It just isn't. Yeah I realize you have a dream of making alot of money playing poker.. And it can happen.. And FTR is definately a huge asset to that becoming a reality, but it isn't gonna happen in a few weeks and probably not even a few years. I read in your blog (I was bored) and you said you "intend to become a world-class player in less than a year". And even in your banner you act as if you intend to make "170 million dollars" at poker.
Lucky....Slow the fuck down... Make sure you beat 10nl and don't donk off another roll before making all the goals and challenges. Dean is a far better player than you. As is Thunder. They have been at it longer.. Do you think they aren't constantly trying to better their game as well? They do frequent a forum with questions and advice. So you intend to surpass them in a few months with your abundance of poker knowledge and wisdom?? Not happening yet... As I said, beat the micros before you challenge low-mid stakes players who will absolutely pwn your fucking soul at this time and at any time in the near future.
You have obviously not experienced negative variance yet, probably to no extent. For one, as soon as you do, you will realize very fast that you WILL NOT increase your roll by 4% everyday. Even you, the great LuckySlevin, WILL have losing sessions, and even losing days, and possibly losing weeks or months. IT HAPPENS!! TO EVERYONE!!!!! That's the nature of the beast. If skill always prevailed, there wouldn't be fish. And there wouldn't be money for everyone. So the quickier you realize that you aren't gonna go from 10nl to 1knl in a few months, the quickier you will start to really let information sink in and become a better player.
I personally have only been playing cash games for 2 months, and have moved through the stakes at a decent speed I guess. I put in a month at 10nl, and a month at 25nl, and I just started 50nl 2 days ago and I'm +6 buyins right now after 2k hands. First off I've put in 30k hands a month (for the regs... I know that's nothing, just I assume that's more than he puts in.. If I'm wrong, that's why it was an assumption). How many hands do you put in per month? 30k at 4ptbb/100 got me through a stake a month. Are you putting in enough hands and winning decently enough to do that? I wouldn't think so as you I hear more about you playing freerolls than anything else. Do you multi-table for multiple hours per day? I hope so if you plan on making it through the stakes that fast.
Next, I have to agree with everyone here that you have no authority to be offering advice just yet. I have little authority as well, that's why I only offer advice when I'm fairly sure I'm on top of it (I haven't been called out for it yet), and it's rare I give advice on hands or whatever because I play shit stupidly at times so I don't have the right to tell other people how to play a hand.
However, you have nothing going for you in the form of poker authority. You have not beat any specific stake over a significant sample size. You have not built up a significant roll. You haven't studied as long as others. However, you do have all those things going against you. As I said, make sure your even a winner before you start challenging people and giving advice. You turned a deposit into $120. That's shit man. Yes your heading in the right direction, but you are still a losing poker player at this time, as you have busted a few rolls. Who wants to take advice from a losing poker player? Noone wants to and here at FTR nobody should have to.. That's why everyone keeps "censoring" and "filtering" your advice and making sure everyone knows not to follow your advice just yet.
Yeah a huge rant, but I really don't want you to get all this shit thrown your way, but as of right now you totally deserve it. Learn poker (not just what cards to play), Become a winner, Build a roll, Move up to higher stakes, then you can give significant advice, teach others, and send out your challeneges.
