My Locations

We noticed in our own logs and others that the 'locations' for places played are inconsistent.
 
An example is say, Full Tilt Poker.  We list it as; Full Tilt, Fulltilt, FT, FTP etc.  This may not seem bad but when viewing your "more stats" by location pages you end up getting multiple graphs and information for the same place, because there is a slight variance in spelling.
 
To consolidate a location you can now go to your "My Account" section. Under "My Locations" click on the location you would like to change and then click "change location".  It prompts you to enter the new desired location name. 
*doing this changes ALL log entries with the OLD location to the NEW location name*
 
Another feature added to the site is a locations drop down menu when you list a log entry.  Under location we list all your locations you play at, which can be managed under "my account".
For example, you play at Big Daddy's.  In the past you type in Big Daddys and forget the ' and then you would have two different graphs.  Now you can scroll down your locations to Big Daddy's and choose your listed spelling for consistency.
 
To add a new location to your list of locations you simply add an entry and choose "new location" in the drop down menu. Then on the right of this type in the new location name.  This will add the new location to your list of locations played at.
 
We hope this helps to keep our logs clean, neat and easier to manage.
 
If you have any questions or problems with this system please email us or reply to this post.

Slump

My slump continues.
 
Haven't landed in the money since early this week and it really gets to you after awhile. I've identified problem areas and am working towards correcting them.
 
The biggest issue I noticed was that I would lose my patience really early for some reason and would begin playing marginal hole cards which would lead to bad calls and thus, early eliminations.
 
I will say that it's not entirely my fault though, these are two hands that I played earlier today:

Full Tilt = Full Rigged?

I've played my share of internet poker with good results in the long run. I've been playing some sit and go tourneys lately and I'm starting to notice some very odd "play".
 
I realize there are players far superior and far worse than me online, but these guys are cold calling with 94 off to make runner runner two pair to snap off aces and stuff. It doesn't take much of a player to figure out 94 off on the KQ2 rainbow flop doesn’t have much chance of dragging the pot on the river. You have no draw except runner runner two pair/trips. How are these guys consistently winning with such odd hands?
 
Now the 94 guy I was observing doesn't play every pot. As a matter of fact, the only pots I watched him play were ones he/she stayed to the river with and rolled over the winner. Everyone has heard the stories about hackers taking advantage on the internet poker. How far off are these "outlandish" stories?
 
Now internet security measures have classically been described as "reactive" since these companies are waiting to catch hackers breaking the rules and then fix the problem after the damage is done. Are there just too many of these "hackers and crackers" out there now to keep up with? Has internet poker become completely venerable to the average 14 year old fat white kid sitting in his parents' basement? Whats the story? Where are the articles talking about how far internet poker security has come in the last year?

Big Blind Raises

Got an invite for a $10 buy in tournament last night. AP qualifier for a 75K tournament. Not sure if I'm going to enter, not quite sure if my skill level is good enough for that tournament.
 
Question... what kind of situations would make you raise from the big blind?

Thoughts?

This game is still in play, I'm curious for a reaction or two.
 
 
Seat 1: Steveinho (1,805)
Seat 2: MAMU13 (1,805)
Seat 3: BastianBooger (1,315)
Seat 4: ZCHIPMAGNETZ (1,140)
Seat 5: cocofran18 (1,465)
Seat 6: maiore (1,470)
Steveinho posts the small blind of 20
MAMU13 posts the big blind of 40
The button is in seat #6
*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to Steveinho [8h 9h]
BastianBooger folds
ZCHIPMAGNETZ calls 40
cocofran18 raises to 80
maiore folds
Steveinho calls 60
MAMU13 calls 40
ZCHIPMAGNETZ calls 40
*** FLOP *** [7s 4h 5h]
Steveinho checks
 
Now, let me just open by saying that I was hoping for a continuation bet here, because I planning on semi-bluffing with a big raise, and committing myself if anyone else came over the top.
 
Gutterball straight-draw in addition to my flush draw seemed lovely enough to get my money involved with.  Best case scenario, all fold... worst case, I'm in with a pretty damn good drawing hand.
 
 
MAMU13 has 15 seconds left to act
MAMU13 checks
ZCHIPMAGNETZ checks
cocofran18 checks
*** TURN *** [7s 4h 5h] [Tc]
Steveinho checks
MAMU13 checks
ZCHIPMAGNETZ bets 320
cocofran18 folds
Steveinho calls 320
 
Okay, it was a pot bet... I'm putting him on a pair of 10s.  I'm just looking for my draw to hit at this point.  It might not be a good money play, but it was too temping to lay down now that I was open-ended.
 
MAMU13 raises to 1,600
ZCHIPMAGNETZ calls 740, and is all in
Steveinho has 15 seconds left to act
Steveinho has requested TIME
 
My process is, if I hit my hand... it is definitely the best hand... if a 6 or a J hits, my straight is best... and I don't think either has a flush draw... so I'm saying to myself that, at best, I have 15 outs... at worst, a heart or a jack are gone... I'm thinking that, worst case, I'm looking at 12-13 outs.
 
I know the raise has to be a set, or a straight... I leaned towards straight, but didn't put set out of the equation.
 
So, it's still the same thing, hand hits... I win... hand misses, I lose.
 
I put the money in to get a huge stack early.
 
 
Steveinho: god, i'm behind, but i'm getting odds
Steveinho raises to 1,725, and is all in
MAMU13 calls 125, and is all in
Steveinho shows [8h 9h]
MAMU13 shows [3c 6d]
ZCHIPMAGNETZ shows [9c Td]
*** RIVER *** [7s 4h 5h Tc] [Kh]
Steveinho shows a flush, King high
MAMU13 shows a straight, Seven high
Steveinho wins the side pot (1,330) with a flush, King high
ZCHIPMAGNETZ shows a pair of Tens
Steveinho wins the main pot (3,500) with a flush, King high
ZCHIPMAGNETZ stands up
MAMU13 stands up
 
Now, I'm not saying I played this hand well... I'm not sure.  Turns out, with his 3-6 straight made, a 2-1 dog, while the retard with 10-9 is drawing dead.
