Garrett Adelstein Bluffs & Dealing W/ Downswings | Authentic Poker Talk





In anticipation of my podcast tomorrow w/ Garrett, I take a glimpse at two Massive bluff spots he confronted these days and the table discuss that we at times possess throughout a downswing. I will discuss about why this type of negative self-discuss is quite lousy for us and means to escape from the negative cycle.

  8. I posted this on another guys utube channel, because he is now starting to try to become a fulltime poker pro. I think the following points have some merit.

    Time to think about the negative aspects of poker life :
    1. In order to be a constant winner in the game, you must surround yourself with losers.
    2. Playing to many hours, day after day, month after month, will often make you look like a POKER HAG. You will look older then you are, you will eat shitty food at the table, you wont get enough exercise, etc.
    3. The poker life often results in destroying a persons other hobbies, relationships, outlook on life.
    4. Always set limits on not only your loses, but your wins in regards to the amount of time you are willing to piss away sitting at a poker table. For example, is it worth it, to sit at a poker game 60-80 hours per week to win $1000 on average , when you could sit at the poker game 30 hours per week and win $600 , and still have plenty of time for other hobbies and live a life.
    5. Time is often more important then money. Pissing your life away at a poker table can lead to a very wasted lifestyle. Ive known players that have won millions of dollars over the last 60 years of them playing poker..BUT, they are poker hags . They look awful, they are obese, they are unhealthy and they are MISERABLE. Yeah., they've won alot of money, but sacrificed things which are not worth sacrificing for that money…things they can NEVER get back in their life.

    Id suggest you read my above points and consider them very carefully. Never let poker become a addiction or a endless pursuit of trying to win more and more money, at the sake of your sanity, health , diet, hobbies, relationships, and PRECIOUS TIME, which is very limited on this earth. I will never idolize a poker hag….I feel sorry for them.

  9. When I first learned of Garrett's reality TV past I assumed he was a huge douchebag but now that I've watched him play a bunch I love him.

  10. man i wish i was at the table i would ask angling alec every hand how much he has in his stack.

  11. I think the fold on the river is correct on the 2nd ✋. Bottom of your river value range, and villain can have a million credible hands that beat you.

  12. What do you think about Garrett's fake-call angle @23:30 ?

  15. I wanna hear some OOL stories from Garrett I’m sure he has tons

    Reply
  16. I dont think there is an issue w him voicing his thoughts there and I disagree that this is what happens when we are in a downswing. I think if his downswing was playing a roll in the decision he would've called which wouldve been a mistaken here even if he had the best hand. If you just consider the ranges here btn just doesn't have enough bluffs to justify calling with a set. When he rips river for 2x pot he is saying his only value hand is the nut flush and his bluffs contain the blocker obviously. When you think a lil more about it btn really doesn't have many off suit A's just AJ maybe a small % of his AKo combos.

  19. Interesting spot. Pretty much the best hand to bluff with on that river blocking nut flush and nut straight.

  22. When you are trapped in a difficult decision and your opponent turns to stone — re-raise!

  23. i saw this clip live.. so sick.. felt bad for garret

  24. NO, don’t miss out on EV by playing tighter just because you're in a downswing if the game doesn’t call for it. No, don’t drop down in stakes if you’re a winner at your current stakes. Downswings don’t fucking matter, whether you’re running bad or playing bad, it doesn’t fucking matter! Just play your best and continuously try to improve. Get rid of this downswing vocabulary and shit: you’re gambling, of course you won’t win every session. Learn how to win and keep trying to do it every single time. Can’t believe even top poker players are not over this « downswing » shit…

  25. that first hand is a clear fold. the other dude has 7-8 nutflushes that would shove for value and maybe 4 bluffs (if he turns AhTx into bluffs, TT blocks bluffs gary might have) that would use this size. People are going to want to play with you more if you are making a funny monologue about always being wrong than if you were sitting there counting hand combos out loud

  26. He’s not “running bad” he just made bad decisions with the best hand

    Reply
  27. He plays so lag that I think he’s gotta make these big calls. It’s like he’s playing the lag role and then folding monsters. So he’s secretly a nit that shows up on big river decisions

  28. nice job chiTown, one of your best keeping it real videos .

  29. Question for G.A. 1) if he has a loose image that’s he’s cultivated why doesn’t he tighten up and he’ll still get the action

  30. this is real talk. i was going through this on my down swing and it was crushing me mentally. it literally drives you insane. i decided to stop playing the site i was playing, watched a little AllinPav's stream, realized a few things i was doing wrong, jumped onto ignition where the games are a little softer and theres not as much cheating and have won 4 tournies since with 3 straight weeks of winning. i know small sample but my mind set is 100% different then it was 3 weeks ago and if only i had stopped sooner and fixed the way i was thinking then my original dowswing may have not be so intense.

  31. IMO Garrett makes a couple mistakes in the KK hand (Last Hand) My biggest question is why not just check back KK on river ? I mean are you really gonna be mad at yourself if you decide to check back river and Art has JJ or A10 and you think you missed value ? Its a clear Check back and scoop pot

  32. Just came here to read the comments from Zynga poker pro players.

  33. it happens. Garrett is fun to watch and seems like a great player. definitely better than me.

  34. Great video Joe!
    Regarding the KK hand –
    I think it makes most sense to bet, bet, check it
    Sure, it is impossible to call river raise

  38. Thank you so much for this video!!! Ugh! Fell into a sick bluff on a down swing last week. A scream in the car ride home moment.

  40. This is a good video.

    Externalize or internalize emotion.

    Usually I run my mouth like Garrett did a few times. That’s my style. Not sure if it’s the best way to handle difficult times.

    Great topic

  43. nothing like waking up, firing up a JOEINGRAM video, and hearing "double A" and "backdoor bangkok"

  44. Why would he bet that much with his value range when in reality if he makes flush he'd bet a reasonable amount that he actually extracts value from worse hands but I don't think he'll actually overbet cause he's folding too much of the hands that he beats that he can extract value you from.
