  1. also, wasnt the article about him in Card Player magazine saying that he used to play online and was making about 1000-3000 grand a day (or maybe it was a week). I know that he bought in himself to the main event, he wanted to do it all on his own. Was a great article, for as young as he is, he seems to have a great head on his shoulder.Also, the players on HSP get a standard "actors" pay.... $1250 an hour.
  2. Hilton's poker room... plenty of easy money there.
  3. Wife and i are leaving to go to AC wednesday (14th) thru sunday. Staying at the hilton wed - friday and then got a room at a a Clarion for saturday night. Let me know where you are staying at.
  4. I hate movie theatres with a passion,but would go watch a movie like that in a hearbeat
  5. so domestic violence is accepted in the Netherlands?
  6. If you can show where i said i have played at the Venetian, that would be great.
  7. Why would i make it up? "I have never lost with quads "Never? if you are going to accuse me of making stuff up, look in the mirror first, unless you really havent played that many hands in your lifetime. if you have played enough hands, i find that hard to believe. in fact, a hand at a game i was at saturday, guy turned quads kings and lost when a 9 diamonds hit on river to give someone a straight flush. in fact, wasnt there a hand at main event where someone flopped quad 5's and lost to runner runner for a straight flush? let me guess. that was made up too? i mean he had quads so he had to wi
  8. 800 bucks twice in a 1/2 game. not in same night, two different games22 on the button, raise, get a caller. Flop is 10 2 2. he bets 20, i raise to 100 he goes all in, i call with last 700 or so. runner runner 10, he flips over 10 3.i have 5 5, raise get a call. flop is 5 7 5, i bet, he raises, i re-raise he goes all in i call. he flips over 7 2, runner 7's.but, justice is served. 10 3 guy is about to loose his house due to losing so much money and cant pay mortgage. 7 2 guy just had car repo'd.
  9. The hilton is nice, i recommend there.
  10. i seem to run into this sort of situation, in what seems like 75% of the times I flop a set. And it gets frustrating.Hole cards - Kh Ks ( i would rasie 4 times BB)Flop - Kd 6H 10H (I bet pot size bet)Turn - 5H first to act, what to do?In postition, first player bets pot size bet into you, what to do?
  11. 30 for you?what do u do for taxes, or is it 70/30 after taxes?
  12. Look me up sometime on there (aknapp1112), i usually am at the 25G SNG, 100/200 NL or 200/400 limit
  13. I was thinking alone the same lines, but closer to 60/40... but, as an example lets say he backs me and my cash out is 10 grand. well after taxes that is about 6500 lets says. Do we split the 10 grand or the 6500? if we split the 6500 at 60/40, i will be paying just about the same in taxes then i take home.or, should i take my 4 grand out of the ten, pay the 3500 in taxes and he gets the rest, problem with that is he gets only 2500.or am i thinking wrong?
  14. my 16 yr old son plays with us, he plays at the .50/1 dollar table while i play the 1/2 table at the house. his last four times playing 9he buys in for $40.00 each time)Cash outs of 230, 190, 210 and 140 so he has made an overall profit of 610 bucks. when i am not in a hand i will walk over and watch him play. I got him to FINALLY stop staring at the flop when he misses, and to FINALLY stop the chip stare when he hits. it is at the point that people get nervous when he sits down. I am not letting him play 1/2 yet though, i dont think he is ready to play with us. he has mentioned trying it, bu
  15. I have a question, what is the general rule of thumb when a player backs you? A friend of mine has seen me play some cash games here in Va beach, and I was talking about trying the WPT $500 buy in event in January at Borgata. He has some money, no kids, etc. and mentioned that he would like to get in on some of that. If I cash, what is the standard for splitting up the winnings? Would like to keep it informal, no corporation or anything like that.Thanks in advance.
  16. a buddy of mine (single, no kids) is talking about going sunday and monday to AC. i am not going (married, 3 kids).PM me if you want, i will call him and see if he wants to go.
  17. BTW, friend of mine played in one of hte hilton tourneys. he cashed out 650, weak players he said. He is a good friend of mine, but he isnt very good and he cashed out... soooooo take that for what it is worth.Hilton cash games are the weakest around i have found.
  18. Yea, you ever sit and watch the amount of money they throw at that Pai Gow game right there. AMAZING what they will throw away. And the tables there... easy easy easy money. Bathrooms right around the corner, smoking area right across the hallway. Waitress service was good.
  19. I posted about the hilton in another thread. GREAT comps there, and lots of money available.
  20. Dont forget the Hilton. Easy money at the 1/2 tables (i profited $750.00 in 6 hours last time i was there), plus their comps are $2 bucks an hour there for playing poker (i think everywhere else is 50 cents/hour). Nice rooms too.
  21. to me poker falls in the same line as chess. Is chess classified as a sport?
  22. yea, well i met him at Borgata and got an autograph!!! LOL (was really looking forward to meeting you to DN, maybe next time)I agree though, if you think about it there were only THREE hands (AA, KK, QQ) that DN had to worry about, the rest were basically races. I have done that before as well, either in the cutoff or on the button.. bunch of limpers i will usually raise it quite a bit, with anything suited/connected and ecspecially if JJ or higher. if the board comes low and/or i really hit it, i get all the chips. i know this, and since i am married with three kids, i play at 1/2 level. Noth
  23. something to go along with this, anyone know of a "rule of thumb" about how much you want to be making per hour?
  24. no, i dont think a deal was made. i talked to mark after they had gotten down to 27 players.. he was planning on winning it all, he really wants to break into the top (for the older guys here, you know when you look at someone still young and they really really want something, that get that glazed look and all kinds of excited? that was mark, but multiply by 10, hell he just about knocked my wife on her butt trying to get back to the cash games at borgata, he just seemed in a "groove"). like i said before, he was the one to watch (woohoo, i was right on a read!! LOL)
  25. Thats a good point. yea, when that river hit, that was one of hands i put him on (was nervous of higher flush too, seems like 4 out of 5 hands someone was getting a flush). if that was it, a J would have been sweet, i would have popped it up there and pray he didnt have AK.Someone asked me a good question, what would you have done, betting turn and not getting there on river? I still think i would have bet 60 if he checked to me again.
