hey guys,
i play poker professionally and am a long-time instructor for the training site CardRunners.com under the nickname "brystmar". ask bren and he'll tell you i am the reason he's a winning player today (jk ).

i play up to 10/20NL & 5/10PLO on PokerStars as marantz and on Full Tilt Poker as MicoTX. For live games, i'll play up to about 25/50 in NLH and/or PLO mixed games. i credit all of my success to two things: studying the game very intensely, and learning from CardRunners videos. feel free to check out my poker blog on CR sometime. i'll be in vegas all summer again living with my poker buddies and trying to win a bracelet.

here's a few interesting/crazy hands for you guys to gush over:

POKERSTARS GAME #16756639461: HOLD'EM NO LIMIT ($10/$20) - 2008/04/15 - 18:36:17 (ET)

i have tons of history with this opponent and was 100% sure he didn't have anything. i was also pretty sure he thought that i didn't have anything and would bluffraise me if i bet the flop, so the only way i can win this pot is by checking to let him bet so i can bluffraise myself. fun hand

this is another really advanced play that requires lots of pre-established history between all 3 players. 20buck knows that mark is 3-betting light, so he will 4-bet light, and i know that he knows this, so i cold 5-bet light vs both of them. even if either of them suspects that i'm doing this lightly, there really isn't much they can do about it without a top 1% hand.

two PLO hands from yesterday's session:
Hand History Posting and Rakeback -- as stated above, i DO accept donations
Hand History Posting and Rakeback -- it's not often that you can get 500bb in on the flop as a >99% favorite 3-way in PLO, but it does happen against bad players. to beginners it may seem like this is a standard "unlucky" spot for at least one of my opponents, but in actuality both of my opponents played their hands terribly. like, god-awfully bad. but that's why i play!

<3 poker

can a fellow TW'er get a CR discount? i'd like to check it out, and $25 a month isn't that bad but the $100 first time price is a bit steep for me grinding through microstakes right now.
