I love working people up into a frenzy enough to call me names over nothing. You take yourself way to seriously. Now that I have control of your emotions go make me a sandwich.

um, you made a thread asking "Am I a Nit?"

do you pick on people who are younger and better looking than yourself merely because they have been more successful in their shorter poker careers?

You're bringing 15k to Vegas? And this is your first time? Man, you must be a young hotshot. Don't bring your whole bankroll - take my word for it, I've been here for years eking out a "living" some call it at 1/2 NL. I've seen it all.

Not at all. I pick on people who let it be known that they are loaded and high rollin and going to clean up the toughest games in town, when they have had no experience doing such a thing. I do this, because I encounter these people everyday.

[/ QUOTE ]

At no point did I specify what my entire bankroll was or what relation the $15k was to my bankroll. At no point in my original deep stack thread did I intend to brag about the amount of money I was bringing, rather it was a tool for others to answer the question I brought to the table, so to speak.

I don't consider the stakes I play to be high rolling. Some would agree. Some would disagree. We know which camp you are in.

In regards to having or not having experience playing live, you are once again reading all that white type that I apparently put into my deep stack post. I have played live since I was 18, legally and illegal, but that is immaterial. To argue with such conviction that there is simply no way on God's green earth that I could have played live AND have this amount of money merely shows your ineptitude regarding poker, reading comprehension, and really, life in general.

At no point in my original thread did I mention anything about "cleaning up" the games in Vegas. For all I know I may lose all the money I bring. But I am bringing it to gamble. What I do with my money is of relatively little concern of yours, although, I suppose I do appreciate it in some bizarro-world type way.

At no point in my post did I mention trying to beat the "toughest" games. Rather, as a card player, and this might be of fiscal interest to you, I try to find soft games. In games where there is relatively easy competition I am at a higher probability to win money. If the stakes are higher, I stand to win even more. In my original post I merely stated that I wanted to find deep-stacked games, because, as I originally stated, it is the best way to make the most out of a profitable situation. Plus, I find it more enjoyable.

You play 1/2 nl. I'm also assuming you buy-in anywhere from $100-$200. This is somewhat shortstack poker, especially the $100 buy in. Tight, aggressive play will win you money there. Post flop play is less mandatory. In deep stack play, poker becomes a different game, and it requires a LOT of post flop play. This is the type of play I am looking for in Vegas, Tracker.

I'm sure you have encountered many people who are unaware of their relative skill in the card-playing arena. I make no such mistake, and perhaps am on the opposite side of the spectrum in that I am well aware of how others play and strive to overcome my downfalls, and more importantly seek them out aggressively. It is this that ensures that I continue learning the specificities of this (in my humble opinion) fine craft.

I hope this clears things up for you and that you can see why you've been responded to so negatively.

Have a fine day and a fine New Years.

Chaos,

Well said. Good luck on your trip. Consider a trip out to Commerce sometime. You'll enjoy the 10-20NL games there.

Someone give me the traditional 2+2 definition of a nit and/or the origin of the word so I can decipher if I should take offense.

Nit=Rick Nebiolo

Good luck on your trip, and don't let these idiots bother you. I love how everyone assumes $15k is your bankroll, or even close to your bankroll. How do we know that you aren't just wealthy by family, received an inheritance, had a great business idea, hit the lottery, etc?

Enjoy your time, and go to the Wynn.

Good post bro. You have earned my respect if that means anything to you. (It really shouldn't, I'm nobody special)

Nevertheless, you sound like you know your game and that is good. So many half-cocked a-holes running around like they are poker gods its hard to tell sometimes who the real deal is. Maybe you are. Maybe not. I wish you the best of luck.

Yes, it is true I play 1/2nl. I also occasinally play 2/5nl if I am running well or have some extra winnings in my bankroll. But, I am not trying to play for a living. I play for fun, and to make a little money on the side. I have a full time job and play on my days off usually. I am not always the best player at the table but am never the worst. If you are succesfull enough at the game at 21 yrs. old that you can put 15K into risk then so be it. In my own perverse way I was trying to look out for you, but it seems you have your head screwed on straight.

You're ok in my book. Again, good luck.

Commerce is Cali, yes?

Also, El D, you are the first person I'm responding to now that I'm 21.

I'm also half cocked.

I'm going to the Borgata in early January and I've heard good things, so I'm pretty damn excited for that, too.
