    You should play in the Fitz kid, One of the best places to play Poker in Europe. I look forward to doubling you up! :D

    if any of you guys are UL students im trying to start up a private(house) cash game with mabe 0.25/0.50 blinds??

    OP even idiot players pick things up and although fitz and other casinos may have lots of live degen spewtards, they have way more money than you and are not afraid to stick it in the pot (hmm sounds like a dream). Anyway if ya wanna gamble it up, go for it but since you are playing so under rolled, even if you're Phil Ivey good, you're still gambling!
    Good luck!

    thats a hard place to make a few quid if you want a easy place go to D1 its full of fish that would nt even know what position is they see A3o UTG and they raise every time i went in there with 80 and left 1100 euro but then i lose most of it back to the blaxckjack but even johny chan used to lose his winnings on 21 so im all good

    unlike the rest of the posters Peterkelly has actually been into the Fitz. The transvestites are great to play with they play a great passive call station game and usually go broke, don't know the stoners, but the chinese are scary no problem leading out huge bets with a inside straight draw.

    OP as previous posters have said there is no point in going in with 100 it could last you 5 minutes. You would be better off playing their tourneys get used to the place and learn.

    Remember you know your friends and how they play, you don't know the players in the fitz so you won't have the same reads. Not all Chinese are degens, some are actually decent players, sometimes the transvestites are calling cause they have the nuts (no pune intended here), but you won't know when.

    I would recommend the Jackpot, or somewhere else, if it's your first time into a Casino. Even if the standard isn't better in the Fitz, for a first timer in a Casino might be a little intimidating and this could put you off your game a little.

    I went to a Fitz myself as a first timer and found it put me off my stride a little made some bad decisions, went to the Jackpot a while later and won 500 euro on my first visit :pac:

    The Fitz is a more professional/high standard Casino (could be accused of being a bit sterile though) and once you get used to live casino poker would be worth checking out, I found the some of the dealers in the Jackpot a little cantankerous.

    Here is 2 typical scenarios you will deal with when playing live in the 1/2 nl game.

    Hand 1 you have 99 in the hole UTG. Your stack is 130 euro after 30 minutes and you raise 3x. The chinese guy beside you puts you all in. He has been playing pretty loose so you call. He shows Kh9h but fails to improve. You now have 250 euro. You feel happy

    Hand 2 you have 1010 in the hole UTG. Your stack is 230 euro after 60 minutes and you raise 3x. The chinese guy beside you puts you all in. He has been playing pretty loose but even after his last loss against you he changed another 500 euro into chips. You call. He shows Kh9h and hits a King on the turn. You now have 0 euro. You feel sad.

    At 1/2nl forget about 25 times big blind. I want to have 200 times big blind at a minimum.

    Also I never want to have to make a decision about whether or not to call where the pot odds are good but if I lose I cant pay my rent.

    You called for your whole stack preflop with an unsuited pocket pair to preserve €6, regardless of his table image that's a poor decision.

    Against one player you are probably 60/40 to win. Decision is do you like them odds.

    Thats hardly why he called.

    He called because TT crushes the donks jamming range, you're welcome.

    Also wtf at unsuited pair. :pac:

    He's a donk but he's a Chinese donk which means having any suited card is a potjam, so you are generally gonna be 60/40 in this situation. 60/40 is not crushing someone.

    Yes you took a punt didn't pay off. If you won he would eventually got lucky against you judging by his buying power so you always go broke, trick is to not get greedy and pick your spots more carefully imo.

    60-40 is a big edge long term.

    Hes also going to show up with lower pocket pairs here as well.

    very true hes also capable of having AA, his range is stupidly wide. I think the underlying problem is that kev was playing with scared money, judging by the context, this means you really have to pick your spots even against donks.

    I was thinking of doing the same as you , But i think i would feel intimadated going in to a casino by myself. I think i am just too quiet and a shy type of person to go by myself. I could just see myself bottling it at the door and heading str8 back home . Perhaps if i knew when you were gonna give it a shot i could meet up with you . I think i would feel more comfortable if i knew there was someone else like me there and we could compare notes after . What do ya think ??

    sounds like a pedophile fishing

    Aren't pairs supposed to be unsuited?

    Not when 60% is going home broke because you didn't bring a decent roll and 40% is doubling up and having 50 BB's instead of 25 when everyone else at the table has 200.
