  1. Isn't that a way of calling it a "buy in". To be perfectly honest....i don't think that can legally be done.....at least not in my city. We had bars hosting tourneys completely free (with cash prizes and maybe that's the difference) but they were shut down because them promoting bar sales as a way to get the $$ back was considered making money off the event (just like getting a rake) i would always buy something in support but forcing people to do so and then calling it a "free" tourney is completely hypocritical cause now the buy in is at least the $2.50 for a pop. I would like to see the
  2. yes he is pretty nice. he was back again this year...although karen was not...i guess she has since changed sponsors. What division did you guys play in? i play ladies (obviously) and i'm not very good but my hubby plays pretty well..they usually cash decently in the A and they have won it
  3. My hubby's one friend calls me b*tch which is ok, because i work hard at earning the title.....and he's a b*stard, which is the name i call him. people often look at us funny but ........it's all good
  4. except maybe Cliff Thorburn.....a great Canadian Snooker player....actually won the World Championship one year, but nowadays plays mostly 9ball and does promotional appearances at amatuer 8ball tourneys at least in Canada
  5. if you're really into learning nl and want to play in some tourneys, try the micro/low limit tourneys. the only trouble with them is.....it's not enough money to keep the tards out. Freerolls are bad because well, they are freerolls and you get alot of people with that attitude and you will get called and sucked out on more often. Lower limit NL tourneys are often excuses for some people to play ridiculously and use the excuse that it's costing them nothing. you will get the good rewards for good hands cause you'll get callers but you will also take more bad beats (IMO) Just be aware of th
  6. I am usually the only girl who will watch the game and play some cards...one night i was making all the money. The guys would call anything to try to win a pot. Well one guy almost sucked out on me until the river. At that point he called me rivergirl and it just stuck whenever i played with them. A couple years later, when i started playing on the internet, i joined everywhere as rivergirl.Nowadays, it seems alot of people have tried to take my name......I am the original....but if i don't get rivergirl...or if i have to put numbers on the end (which really pisses me off since it's my nam
  7. i never took fouls into consideration.........but the perfect game is still 147. Its kind of like when Earl ran 10 racks for a million, they really didn't want to give him credit for "running a rack" when he made the 9 on the break.I also didn't realize Tony Drago was that old (1955)...he still looks pretty good for his age and boy can he move since he should be somewhere around 65-70(really i'm assuming a JR and SR there although that is not mentioned where it should be).But like i said, don't really get too much snooker here, unfortuneately in North America its a dying game, if it's not alr
  8. because the highest possible break is 147.....how you came up with 151 is beyond realistic.I play alot of pool, mostly 8ball...we go to vegas every year for the tourneys in may...i even got married at one and had my wedding pic taken in front of a pool table in the main playing area.We only have one room left in my city with snooker tables (6x12s) and once in a while we go down there to play...highest run 24, but in all fairness, i can't see that far and my stroke isn't good enough to trust it. I've seen lots of perfect games, only on tv, back in the day when TSN used to show the big snooker
  9. you have to be 19 to enter a casino in ontario..the hand stamp is so that you're not bothered by security all night for your idbodog shouldn't be running sats for this one...they don't allow Canadian customers and i'd seriously doubt they would do it because of that.my only question...why is Windsor not allowed by law to run sats for any tourneys (something about the way the olgc sets rules) and niagra can?
  10. gg hoosier, you played great....just a little bad luck with top pair
  11. take him down for even thinking that a 3 way even chop was a good idea......gooooooo hoosier
  12. do you have a different name there, i don't see ya
  13. that was the sickest **** i've ever seen....gg though grinder
  14. nice double grinder...see you ARE doing wellbesides you're still in..could be alot worseglglglgl
  15. sure trip.....hoosier is in 5th, grinder is in 17 with 18 left.both are doing well
  16. i'm railing......good luck you two!!!!by the way it's nice you're both at same table, much easier to rail that way...hopefully all that way to the last 2
  17. Everytime i see that commercial for it I think......is there really anybody who would pay to see this movie? Apparently there is.Maybe the commercials don't do it any justice, but .......it certainly doesn't look like its winning any academy awards this year...unless a raspberry is an academy award.
  18. Its a little more than 1/3 and relative to the blinds, (which i am already in for), it leaves me 10x the blind at the begining of round. i would've flopped top and bottom pair had i called which means, the small blind with middle pair wouldn't have been able to get me off the hand, especially knowing the way he played (it was almost as tho he had no backs on his cards). Ever since i've spoken with people afterwards, i've questioned myself as to why i don't follow my reads.....does it make me too passive at the table?....am i just not as aggressive as i should be? Which is why i'm asking for
  19. That sucks...only open to US residents, like everything else. I can understand it from ESPN since its a US company, just like TSN does with its contests.It really upsets me when MLB and NHL do promos and only open them to US residents tho.......we have Canadian teams in those sports. Sorry had to rant about that.But seriously this promo only open to those residing in the continental US..so i guess that those people living in Alaska and Hawaii get screwed too.
  20. Playing live MTT at local casino. Blinds are 100-200 and i'm big blind. I have relatively good stack at table...2 short stacks, one goes all in for 1000, next short stack raises about 25 more folds to the very loose small blind who calls. I've got roughly 2800 in chips, only costing me 825 more to call with a A5clubs.After thinking (for a long time mind you) i lay the hand down. i knew the first short stack was desperate, and had done this a couple of times with less than mediocre hands. The second short stack was trying to leave the game and the small blind, having played with him before
  21. Yesterday i played in a live MTT at my local casino. I believe everyone started with 2000 in chips....(i could be wrong, i kind on shuffled to my table quickly and didn't really pay attention..i also never count my chips unless i'm all in at the table..superstition i think) In the first hour, blinds go up every 20 minutes starting at 25/50 and doubling until 200/400 (goes to 300/600). after the first 3 levels there is a break and then every half hour the blinds rise. Ok now to try to make the long story short.....i sat for 2 hours with completely unplayable cards. I was completely at a
  22. i have to agree with greg on this one..... i've posted it before only to be flamed and cheered. The WSOP really does have to find a better way to crown a World Champion. It's ridiculous to think that someone who has a good week or two of cards can be recognized as the greatest that year. Not taking anything away...but there has to be more qualifying factors than one tourney. In golf, it's not one super satellite that gets you into the Masters, its a tourney to qualify for a tourney to get your card then it's points throughout the year to be invited to the Masters, you really have to earn y
  23. i think some people completely missed my point....First off, i was upset at the comparison to golf that someone else started in a topic, which is what started my rant....someone compared Greg Raymer to Tiger Woods (obvious frustration)Then i started thinking that maybe ...just maybe there is a better way to crown a real world champ....and make it something not "just anybody" can do. In golf, you would have to win a series of tourneys to get your card, to get into the majors, you have to prove yourself worthy through your appearances while you've held your card. You can't just walk up on t
  24. Sure i'll agree he had a nice little run...but now that he plays those great players all the time....does he really have a chance........the answer is defiinately NO. and it's been proven since he really hasn't done anything since.that would be like saying Michael Campbell was a is a great golfer because a couple years ago he won the British Open and he was high on the money list that year......i'm guess you don't even know who that is cause he really hasn't been heard from since.
