    Indeed; very nice. But you know what TMMLK will say: "Todd, you don't need to lie about buying in for 2 racks. Obviously you bought in 10's of thousands more. It's obvious you are barely keeping PFA running. Let me know if you need a loan or something".

    I'm wondering that, too. Her resume does not mention it.

    FYI, she and her boyfriend are 2-5 NL grinders in Vegas. (The boyfriend is Mike from the game last night.)

    Mike seems like a nice guy, though he's definitely the 20-something poker grinder everyman type, so he definitely did quite well for himself scoring a chick like her.

    I wasn't worried about Ryland's over-exuberance for finally meeting me, which definitely came out during the stream.

    That's just the way he is, and I kind of expected it, having interacted with him on these forums (and to some degree the radio show) over the past decade.

    Ryland did make the game entertaining, even if he did it more through table talk than play. Not sure if you guys heard this, but he said that he gets nervous during televised streams, and claimed that was why he was being overly tight.

    The bluff-with-72o followed by the stand-up gloat about it with his fly down was a HOF moment.

    I actually planned to talk more at the table, but I was a little rattled by the stressful 2.5 hour LA traffic drive getting there, and I just wasn't in the mood to do that.

    im actually at peace with her A7 fold on that ATAxx board. she had put something like $200 into a $500 or so pot and needed to pay another $250 to showdown (i think?). she had a weak kicker and was looking at ending the hand +$400 for the night by folding, and virtually anything she calls against puts her at +$150 unless seat 9 was blufferizing.

    for a gambler thats shit, for a grinder thats maybe even SOP.

    Regarding Marle's headshot, it's clearly very airbrushed/photoshopped, so it's hard to tell if she's actually changed a lot since it was taken.

    I believe she's 26 now.

    She's still very pretty, though probably not enough to stand out from the countless other hot chick models/actresses in LA/NY, so she probably made the right decision to get away from that.

    Edit: Never mind. Just watched that video. Yeah, she does look different now. Main difference is the tan is gone and she doesn't look as young.

    Is it possible to support oneself grinding 2-5, even for the best players?

    i hear ryland does well for himself grinding 1-3 and 2-5 in vegas (seriously), but based on how scared he played last night, i wonder if it was just a transient swong.

    i heard (back in 2013ish) a good 1-3 player could make $18/hr grinding. A felon could get a job working in a factory for that much, but its a living. The best 1-3 player I knew, who kept detailed records on which casinos were the best, which times were the best to play, all that, made $27/hr. That was the $1-3 nuts as far as i've heard.

    Made bad laydown with that JJ but didn't know the guy yet. Later in the session I'm calling him all day.

    Regarding that 86 hand where I flopped trips, it wasn't a good spot to make $ because the 2 people in with me were nits, and I knew a 3x check raise was going to make them fold just like a shove. I wasn't deep enough to fold turn if 3rd diamond hit, so I just said fuck it, shoved, and hoped that the girl had an overpair and would put me on a flush draw. Not arguing it's optimal but that's what I was thinking.

    i did eat a lot of good. Ryland paid for it. These cheap bastards stopped coming food last month. Awful.
    Let's set aside if going all in was the play there or not for a minute. The issue was the tell.

    She wrote an ironic blog that doesn't seem so ironic now.
    Itís no mystery that women look for different things in relationships. I, for example like really generic looking men with no personality.

    Ryland also told me that he's done very well in poker recently, so I agree his scared play was kinda perplexing there. Usually people only fear the nuts being against them if they are seemingly running into it every hand.

    I really do believe Ryland is better than it appeared on the stream, and he was just nervous about stacking off with an inferior hand and everyone seeing it.

    Also, it's funny because I had the plan to play a lot of hands and be fairly aggressive in this game, but the stress from the traffic sapped a lot of my mojo, and then taking a beat on the very first hand I played took out even more, and then being dealt the bottom 15% of all hands over and over took out the rest of it.

    So I ended up playing a small ball style, which probably wasn't very entertaining to watch.

    Also, I just want to say that I enjoy playing cash limit holdem 10000000000000 times more than NL, and not just because I'm better at it. I just find it to be way more fun.

    In order, here's my rank of enjoyment of the 6 games I play:

    1) Limit holdem
    2) Limit O8
    3) PLO8
    4) Big O
    5) PLO
    6) NL holdem
