  1. They interviewed James Woods on espnnews yesterday (he's in the tourney) and I think the graphic said the prize pool was $1.5 million, with $500K for the winner.
  2. After messing around at Party and Pokermountain, I now play exclusively micros at Stars. Just graduated off .02/04 last night and will start out at .05/.10 later tonight. I've decided if I'm going to play online, it's only going to be build a bankroll from scratch and I'm not messing with the rest of it. Party let me cash out that $50 they gave me, plus what I earned, right away, which was cool. Free money is good. Pokermountain I may come back to someday, but too few players, too few games, players are better than me so, like Daniel told the Matador, "I think I can find a better spot." Still
  3. There are lots of possibilities for poker players hosting SNL. I can just imagine the monologues:Mike Matusow: "Thank you for being here for Saturday Night Live. But of course, you're in the audience. (heckles). Hey, stop messing around with me buddy. I got big huge cajones, you got little little cajones. You mess with me I'm going to come up there and bust you!"Sam Farha: "Thank you for letting me host Saturday Night Live. How about that Moneymaker? Bluff of the century? That was the worst play ever! It only looked good because I made it look good. Give me another chance, I'll bust him in one
  4. If you are winning hug pots, you got bigger issues than monitor size.(I'm kidding. I kid.)
  5. Generally playing 4 tables at a time, I accept that there are going to be 1 or 2 misclicks in a session. It happens. Happened twice tonight - once I raised with Q-9 off, flop paired the 9, I bet out and everyone folded. The other time, I had raised with A-K off, got callers and the flop came Q-Q-9. It was bet and raised before it got to me, but I folded on accident knowing none of that. Turned out not to be bad (a full house won the hand), and I *hope* that's what I would have done had I actually been making a decision.
  6. In the tournament series that I play in, we put a bounty on the previous winner (even though in most cases, the game itself being played changes). It's a fun thing but once the tourney starts, I haven't really noticed anyone actually thinking about it. Maybe that's because it isn't much money at all, but it doesn't seem to affect anyone's play. But yeah, on PM, when Daniel goes all-in, there's more callers than you'll find on WFAN after the Jets lose.
  7. I started doing something similar after busting out of some tourneys on Stars - including 3 Negreanu Opens just out of the money. Took $12 and headed out to the short-season rookie league of poker, .02/.04 limit. Will play Session #16 tonight and start at $29.79, so hopefully with any sort of win tonight, I'll be moving up to the Florida State League of poker, .05/.10, next session.To put it in perspective, it's taken me about 15 sessions, approx. 4100 hands and 84 table hours to get to this point. In the 15 sessions, 13 have been up, 2 were down.Favorite hand of the run came last night. I had
  8. They sent me $20 on two occasions as it turned out, but I never logged in to notice, so they took it back out and came back with the $50. Maybe I should have waited til they went for $100.
  9. Yeah, they did the same for me. 65,000 players and they are sending people $50. lol
  10. Good post Smash, it really does happen to everyone. Most people forget that.
  11. Go die in an oil fire you spamming piece of roadkill.
  12. Of note, TJ has bracelets (he won one in Razz this past year), but no, he hasn't won the Main Event.Mickelson won The Masters last year.
  13. I first saw it on espn.com, where HST was a columnist on and off since about 2000.
  14. Hunter S. Thompson is one of those few people whom upon his entry into the after-life, the powers that be will sit him down and ask him all about his surroundings and his times, instead of the other way around.
  15. Raising the minimum is what I picked, because I was the first one to respond and "push all-in" wasn't an option on the poll at that point!
