  1. the British Poker Open would be what rivergirl if refering to and omg is it ever bad. they take like 5 minutes to turn the turn and river and the commentators are horrible. Also the ultimate bet shootout tourney is impossible to watch . I can actually fell myself getting worse when i watch that
    thanks jays...having never being able to watch an entire episode i couldn't really remember the name....as for the UB one ya it's pretty rancid too but i find alot of those website qualifying non pro events are difficult to stomach because alot of those people have rarely been in a live game (or so it would seem)All in all...they are all good shows.....FOR ME TO POOP ON!!!(love your av...triumph is my hero)
  2. Mansion Speed Poker from the Poker Dome is pretty damn bad.
    someone beat me to this but QFT anyway...Also, on our sportsnet in Canada, they show alot of bad poker...alot of amateur tourneys that are sponsored by websites, usually pretty boring stuff.Although i don't remember the name of it, there is a tourney they play from the UK that they broadcast in Canada....Its a series of 6 man tables with a mix of poker pros, online qualifiers and one celebrity at each table. The celebrities are always someone from England and unless you're familiar with what they do, you don't have a clue who they are ( Steve Davis, who is by far my fav pool player, was on this show once but if you don't know much about snooker from 10-15 years ago you probably don't know him although he plays some 9ball now, very rarely and only Euro events) This is a pretty bad show, no offense to anyone but i hate watching commentary on anything from England. I just don't get all the slang and some of those people speak so fast you can't understand them well.....anyone ever hear Sid Waddel commentate?Sorry to digress, but someone from Canada will know the tourney i'm talking about and they air it in 2 hour segments......it would be great if it was good poker done well, unfortunately....
  3. Read the post properly. He was in the small blind and completed the bet. The BB hand was still live. When it times out all it does is check the hand. Standard functionality on all sites I use.Read the post properly. He was in the small blind and completed the bet. The BB hand was still live. When it times out all it does is check the hand.

    i hope you copied and pasted and didn't actually type that twice
  4. i will agree that for the most part, the threads are mostly flames...however, if none of them contained and useful information, in your opinion, why not just add your info to them. i don't intentionally mean to flame but the horse has been beaten so many times it's already been packaged by Elmer's and distributed to elementary schools across the country. however....you're entitled to your opinion and you've obviously done your homework..i would suggest putting it up in general tho, and letting as many people as possible read it....it may open some eyes

  5. i personally love the vlogs and miss them too. I don't think its obsession..it's nice to watch them instead of reading and its a look into a lifestyle most of us will only ever dream of. not to mention its more personal than a blog

  6. i think it's important to see as many flops as possible in the first few rounds of an MTT just because when the blinds start rising you don't want to run out of hands. So to maximize my chip count at early part of tourney i try to limp with as many decent hands as possible. i also try not to raise alot early in tourney, unless i pick up an absolute monster or i have an optimal position to steal.With that said, i have to agree with Royal there is nothing wrong with trying to limp in here. You just have to learn to exercise control when playing it postflop. And if a raise does come, don't be afraid to lay it down for the initial 1% of your stack.

  7. Sex offensive?!?! You must be an American.
    nope, canadian but its not the sex that's offensive it's the context in which they did it. Not to mention if i was phil ivey or his wife for that matter....there is no way i'd let anyone do a commercial with any of those ideas in mind, especially since my family would have to see iti wasn't offended by the sex, i was offended by how it portrayed his wife. i think it's a shitty way to try to make a buckJust my opinion....
  8. First you would have to consider who would be good to have in power if they won......this eliminates some peoplePhil Hellmuth........could you imagine his state of the union addresses?x-22.....might have better speaches than phil (quackquack) but you'd never get any news.if it's an online game, just find a few hackers with one of those card seeing programs LMAO....if they are smart enough to make one of those, they must be able to run a planet.

  9. i would first have to say Jen Harman....i know she gets some credit....but i think because of her gender she is often underestimated.Ram Vaswani(?) is also very low key...but i've seen him tear up some tourneys consistently. Especially on the EPT.Also Dan Harrington is definately underrated....the only person to make the FT of the ME in how many consecutive decades??????

  10. Please don't get me started on jump cues.......it disturbs me that anyone with $100 can play a shot that used to take years to learn and master. I hate to say it, i have one, only because its a handy shot to have but.....it disturbs me to see new players, people who can't hold a full length cue properly practising jump shots instead of try to master the art of making straight in balls consistently. Nitro, you probably know my hubby or at least his team...they won it last year in the mens A....he plays with the guy with the funny ties. I'm sure we could arrange at least a poker game....we had one going in between matches this year...but i'm sure Royal could hook up something with all the FCPers around TO.

  11. you didn't miss much this year if you didn't make it. i think it being held in july really hurt it's chances to be successful. I'm not sure how much it being scheduled on Easter weekend will improve it for the next few years. i was actually trying to figure out if i knew you (or of you). I usuallly meet alot of players through watching/hanging out with my hubby during tourneys. I find watching the play is really a great learning tool, especially now that my game is turning to theory and ball selection. it's also much more exciting to see alot of runouts as opposed to 6 trips to the table each (my games lol). If you are going next year in April, since we'll be in TO anyway, maybe we can get and FCP night going. I know they have them, but i just can never make the 4 hour drive. I'm sure if nothing else we can find a poker game

  12. i think its a little different where i live (windsor) because these events directly compete with our casino and pokerroom, especially now that the non smoking law is killing our casino business. I just joined the RHPT so i haven't attended an event yet, but like i said i know that other establishments here have tried similar things only to be shut down.
