  1. Good advice. The structure is not that bad any more. $6,000, one hour levels starting with 25-50 and no ante until the 5th level. You do need to get chips when the opportunity is there. But, to your point, If I fold on the flop to the CR I have $6,000 chips left and room to move given the structure is not rediculously quick.
  2. My thought on calling the CR instead of pushing was that if my read was right and he had a flush draw, especially with a pair or the Ace of spades he would have the odds to call my push given there were two cards to come. However, if a blank came down on the turn and he calls my push, there would be almost no hand that I was ahead of that the call would be right at slightly less than 2:1. It could be close, but not right. Of course I could be beat already so the turn could save me money.The only hand I feared in the end (right or wrong) was 8-8 which would give him the str8 and might make s
  3. Yesterday's $750 tourney at the Borgata. The tourney started slowly. There were only 4 players at my table for the first few hands then had a 5th sat in and the sixth after about 10 minutes. The sixth player will be the villian in this post. I raise that because his first hand after sitting down was as follows: The blinds are 25-50 and the UTG raises to $200 and he calls on the button. The flop is Q-6-8 rainbow. The original raiser (OR) bets $400 into the $475 pot and he calls. The turn is a 2 keeping the board rainbow. The OR bets $700 into the $1,275 pot and he raise to $1,800 and t
  4. Boxing the cards is a term used by magicians that do card tricks. Whether they are passing the cards from one hand to the other or doing tricks which seperate the cards they always return the cards to a neat packed form thus they have "boxed the cards" as they present the cards in one neat stack after the action.
  5. Hand number one: He could be tired of you coming over the top of him, but at a final table I think the worst hand he has is A-K. Even though you said everyone folded to him, he appears to be in fairly early position since it is an 8 seat table and you are in MP, so I would fold assuming he is very strong since he showed strength. Folding knocks you out of the chip lead but $80K still leaves you in great shape. Too early at the final table when logically the best you can hope for is that he either has A-K or was tired of you coming over the top and he has 9-9 or 10-10. Hand number two. Yo
  6. I recently played in the $1,200 NLHE event at Foxwoods. It was the largest $ tourney I have played in to date. Generally I was happy with my play. I built stack to $7K in the first two levels but in the 100-200 level I lost a tough pot (set to a rivered nut flush) to get me down to $2,200 in chips. Then these were my last three hands.UTG, I raise to $600 with AJ suited. The person to my immediate left raises to $1,600. He had a stack of about $12K from the $5k we started with. He has only showed down two hands and both times he was first in the pot and won a good pot with KK. He had re
  7. [ Anyway I'm glad they are reopening it and its great for the NY people since Mohegan Sun is about half hour closer then Foxwoods.When you go to Foxwoods, if you drive by Mohegan Sun instead of staying on 95 it cuts the trip by about 15 minutes. Foxwoods gives the directions to stay on 95 because they do not want to have you drive by Mohegan and possibly stop and play there instead. It is actually only 15 minutes or less to go from one to the other.
  8. It is set to open in th Spring of 2008, so while it is still a ways away, fortunately it is not 3 years
  9. There is also a WSOP Circuit event at Harrah's Atlantic City which overlaps with this tourney. It runs from 12/9 through 12/19 while the Trump tourney runs from 11/27 until 12/17. The championship event at Harrah's starts on 12/17 and is $4,900+250 while Trump's championship event starts on 12/16 and is $5,000+150. Interesting that they are fighting for players instead of spreading it out. Does anyone venture a guess as to which tourney will draw more top players? I guess the WSOP circuit events have tied up some players like Chris Ferguson with his video game contract. Perhaps some will
  10. I just called again and I was able to speak to a more knowledgeable person and he said the $500 events start with $5,000 in chips. That makes a lot more sense.
  11. I called them today and they said the starting chips is just $1,000 and blinds start at 25-50. I am hoping they made a mistake (will call again tomorrow), but they said they start all the $500 and lower events with $1,000 in chips.
  12. This past Saturday I was playing in the NLHE event at Foxwoods. About 15 hands in this happens:I had won four pots already w/o a showdown and was up from $5k starting stack to just under $7K. Blinds were 25/50 and I limp into the pot with 4-5 of spades (I normally do not play with this especially in early position, but I am trying to open my game and I had chips to see a flop with). We took the flop with 5 players. The other four all had around the $5K they started with.The flop comes 3 of spades, 6 of spades and 7 of diamonds. I hit the current nut straight and have OE st8t flush draw.
  13. 17. If the deck stub gets fouled for some reason, such as the dealer believing the deal is over and dropping the deck, the deal must still be played out, and the deck reconstituted in as fair a way as possible. The above info is from Robert's rules of poker, which are used in many (if not most) card rooms as the basis for their rules. Clearly the dealer in this instance chose the most unfair way possible as the river ended up being one of the only two cards that prior to his mistake could NOT have been the river card.
