O.K.-give me the straight "POOP"!
I would appreciate some "constructive criticism" on a point or two.First,I play mostly MTT'S of 45 or 90 players and my ROI runs about 200% month to month in the $3 to $6 range.Anyway,I have an ongoing "arguement" with a friend of mine about something and it's this :I enjoy playing the PokerStars
daily "Astronomers Freerolls
" and I play one a day and I finish "ITM" at least 1 or 2 times a week(this week 3!")For instance,Iplaced 32nd in a PLO tourney this week and it was the 1st time I ever played PLO for $ or for "free"!I was also "ITM" in an 8-game tourny and again,it was my 1st 8-game tourny for $ or otherwise.Here's the arguement:My friend says those "freerolls" are easy to finish "ITM"and it's no accomplishment.When I say to him"then let me see YOU win one"he says he doesn't have the 3 to 5 hours it takes to win one but he could if he wanted too!When I ask him :who is easier to beat;tight-aggressive "good" poker players or players who go all-in half the time (4000 of them!!)he doesn't have an answer.He says I have a distorted view of myself and my "pretty good" STATS are worthless because I play against "Bad" poker players!I know the truth is somewhere in the middle but to whose side do you think it leans?I've been playing poker almost 40 years and have never had a losing year(or month for that matter!)All right-give it to me straight!!"MentatYabba"
