Slaying The Dragon or Geez Tell Me What You Really Think

Wow. Not even sure where to begin. This here post is gonna be a response to a recent post by Dragonystic regarding the hand that I knocked him out with last night (thanks Skitch for letting me know about my new found friend). In order for you to know the full scoop - and to make sure nothing is left to question - here's his post in full...

I really can't fucking stand poker that turns into "hit-to win." Where you can't make a move on anyone, cause no one is laying down. I make it down to the final 2 tables, with a decent stack of T4500. I fold for about 30 - 40 consecutive hands in a row, because the cards were not coming my way. As a matter of fact, in 170+ hands, I did NOT see AA, KK, QQ or AK. I don't care about that. What ticks me off to no end is the way I busted. TripJax raises about every other pot. I decide to finally put him to the test, by raising the rest of my chips in for about 4000 total. He decides to call of half of his chips with KJo. What a fucking joke. I don't care if this is unprofessional sounding, or even bitter. You're a joke of a player, and an idiot to boot. You remind me of my reckless friend Ryan who wins when he gets lucky, and doesn't know when to let go of a hand. You're basically lucky that the anonymity of online poker made me miss the fact that you don't know how to play, and that I shouldn't bluff you, because you can't be bluffed. Dumbass.

I wish I could make this short and sweet, but I just don't think it's in my playbook. I will, however, attempt to get the gist of my main comments out early leaving the rest of my drivel at the end for those willing to stick around for the long haul. So it begins...

You know what really pisses me off. I think Dragon is probably a real cool dude. I definitely like his blog and was planning to visit all the blogs for players I played with and could remember...Dragon being one of those. I was also wanting to add to my blogroll anyone I made contact with. That's one of the nice things about these tourneys with fellow bloggers...it's a great chance to meet folks in our humble community. But before I could even make it to his blog to give him props for a good game I find out he's trashing me. Buddy, you don't know me...if you wanna trash somebody, trash your fucking reckless friend Ryan (no offense Ryan...just making a point). At least you have some substantial evidence that he is what you say he is. As for me, though you're free to have your own opinion, I question anyone who has the nerve to call someone they don't even know and know nothing about an idiot, joker, and dumbass. Where do you get off?

All this being noted, I must go on record as saying that I don't hold grudges. It's not in my nature. I'm a pretty laid back guy, but when I get put in a position where I get pissed off, I let it all out and I'm done with it. So Dragon, if you have a change of heart, I'll be at this here humble blog and will definitely be at any and all WPBT events if you would like to converse. However, if you would like to continue to show yourself as the penis wrinkle that you did in your post above, then so be it. T'will not be any hair off my non cancer ridden nutsack (thanks for the good nutcancer jokes last night Bob).

It's funny, the play against Dragon wasn't even the toughest of beats. How could it be, since I had the best of it when the cards were shown? I didn't feel bad about my play against Dragon at all. However, I did suckout on the river against Jorgen and Dr. Mullets, and though I still feel I made the right call considering the circumstances, I felt bad about the beat I put on them. Bad enough to publicly acknowledge in my earlier post below that it was a tough beat to take.

Ya know the guys that try to be a poker pro while playing online, telling you why your play is bad and why their play was good? Well I'm not that type. I try to keep to myself and just have some jovial banter when chatting it up. But this here blog is a place that I can at least have a retort to some of the things that are said about me. I in no way try to force feed my beliefs on anyone, but if I have something I think is good info, I put it out there. With that in mind, I'd like to offer up some great words that I'm sure we've all read, but sometimes are good to be reminded of. They're from the honorable Doyle Brunson...and I read this exact section of his book Super System before I played on Sunday...

I've got a reputation for being an aggressive player. And I don't ever want to lose that reputation. It's what enables me to pick-up more than what would normally be considered my share of pots...If I win ten pots where nobody has a big hand...then I can afford to take 2 to 1 the worst of it and play a big pot. I've already got that pot paid for with all the small pots I picked up. And when I play that big pot...it's a freeroll. When a big pot's played...I've usually got the worst hand. I'd say over 50% of the time...when all the money goes in, I've got the worst hand. Obviously, I couldn't overcome that unless I had something to compensate for it. And my compensation is all those small pots I've picked up.

Interestingly, once I got a decent stack to start playing with early (say 3.5k), I was able to start betting strong to take down those small pots. Eventually those small pots began to add up and that's what afforded me the ability to bet strong and - when the instance arose where someone went all in for not alot more - call the bet and see the hand out.

It worked numerous times which is a testament to what Brunson wrote. Unfortunately for me, when I needed the variance to work for me, it went against me and helped others in the end. But I'm extremely happy to have been a part of sending a fellow blogger to the WSOP event. And it was extremely kind of Bob and others to take the time to leave their comments on my blog today. I thank you all.

As for you, dear Dragon, I suggest taking a step back and thinking before you write. We poker bloggers should stick together. Berating another blogger on your site when it is not justified is lame to quite lame.
