So there are 2 topics on the forums today that i found interesting. Let's start with the JJ thing. There is alot of controversy surrounding JJ and if he should be allowed to play, was his apology real or just a sham to get people off his back before the PCA, etc.
Basically i think he has done quite a few things that shouldn't be forgiven, yet at the same time he was young and foolish. I used to do alot of stupid shit and think i knew it all and i'm sure in 5 years i'll look back at this point in my life and think the same thing. The best thing JJ can do is reveal his accounts that he has played on, precisely how many tournies he multi-accounted and the amount won. He has to completely bare himself and expose his faults to the poker world in order to be forgiven, if he does this he can at least rebuild his reputation. He should also try and be as active as possible in the poker forums trying to help with hand analysis and remaining seen. His only other option is to stay reclusive ala ZeeJustin and just accept that those who dislike you are still going to and those who like you will like you more. You just cant have the best of both worlds.
Moving on to shaun deeb's 10k post which can be found here:
shaun deeb talks about high volume play and its EV
I think shaun makes a lot of really good points here. Playing a big volume can really help a player get in more hands and work on his game. At the same time, it helps with that mental aspect as youre likely to make more deep runs and final tables just by simply covering the variance so much quicker. This makes you not feel like crap because you havent cashed in a week. Another good thing he pointed out with playing some of the smaller buying tournies is that your edge is so huge that you can really feel it. This means you have more opportunities to really outplay and crush people which makes you feel just that much better.
Anyway if you haven't read what shaun posted i def suggest giving it a read. As far as things with me I've mostly just been playing small stakes cash and sng's just passing time while here at home, cant really put in the time with mtt's as my mom is constantly sending me on small errands and doesnt seem to understand that when playing tournies i cant leave, so i just skip the whole thing for simplicity's sake. Gonna see family and stuff next few days, which means no internet and dealing with a lot of redneck people i didn't realize i was related to.
