    Default Operation: I'm kind of grinding again

    A couple months ago, Full Tilt Poker suckered me back in with an email that said "hey you have some FTPs sitting in this account you haven't played on in years". Bored, I decided to see what I could do with those points and as it happens, you can get $100 worth of SnG tickets so I did what any bored person with a short attention span would and blew them all on $20 hyperturbo HUSnGs, resulting in FOURTY DOLLARS in my account.

    I decided to stay the course, continuing to play $20 hyperturbo HUSnGs until I had THREE HUNDRED DOLLARS in my account. Bored with running good at HUSnGs, I decided to try my luck at 50NL RUSH and those games are as easy as I remember 50NL being in 2010. I also ran good obviously, and moved up to 100NL at ~800. Some more rungood there, some rakeback & bonuses and boom, sitting close to 2k now.

    obligatory giraffe:



    So that's my cool story bros. Stay tuned and see how far my rungood will take me and/or watch me publicly humiliate myself when the rungood ends and all my dreams of hundreds of millions of dollars come crashing down

    Your giraffe is obviously shopped.......i no cuz im drunk. Please don't ban me. I look forward to your rungood holding up for at least 22 months. I'll be following your blog as I love successful poker successes.

    haha nice boom switch. I'm partially convinced that there is something rigged in their "randomization" algorithm that randomizes run hots when you start up ata site and then blasts you back to earth after, but you still remember the run hot so you keep playing.

    either way, enjoy the ride!

    I've held that conspiracy theory before, but admittedly this is my 3rd time this year implementing "aggressive BRM" on FTP and went busto the first two times. Years ago when I first moved to FTP from stars, I ran like absolute ass and was convinced that FTP was RIGGEDEDED against me.

    But on all the other sites it's defo true fosho.

    I'm more than partially convinced and I'm so suspicious it keeps me up at night.

    Aggressive-don't give a shite about the money-shot taking makes for a much more interesting thread. Keep up the rungood!

    It's terrifying, knowing that at any moment, my life's reservoir of rungood will be exhausted prematurely, and the rest of my life will be plauged with doomswitches.

    You're BRM is slightly more aggressive than mine but I'm still playing off my freeroll too. Continue the rungoot and publicly humiliate yourself anyway.

    h5 aggro brm. tho now I don't know where to take it exactly because I'm confident beating 100NL, but less so at 200NL. My aggro brm is always justified by confidence so I guess I'll play 100k at 100NL and see if that gives me any 200NL confidence.

    If you start running bad just hit the transfer roll to stars button. I'm almost certain their systems reward everyone who has not been grinding through their doomswitches with boomswitches to get them back to putting in volume so they can eventually be doomswitched to level things out again.

    Hard to know if they've synchronized the switches since the acquisition but I'll give it a shot. No need yet, I'm up 7hundo on the weeekend.

    Nice run going. Stay logged in at FTP so you do not reset the doom switch

    I've been playing bad lately. I post this as a reminder to myself to play good again. BR is still fine, all is well.

    So I play bad, have been breakeven for a while, 400NL shots don't go well, am too nitty to 3bets...working on opening that up.

    For your entertainment:



    I mean...coulda been a worse 70k hands after not playing for ~2 years I suppose.

    there's virtually NO traffic at 200 rush on FTP, it's weird. 400 doesn't get much, but 50 also gets a lot less than 100 so I'm guessing it has something to do with how they're sorted when you click the "micro", "low", "med" buttons and more fish just pick the top one.

    I too have unistalled league in the past. Ironically was super high when I did and when I sobered up I was sad.
