  1. I was playing $5/$5 PLO at the Edgewater Casino in B.C. a few days ago and this hand came up.Me: $750 (bb)Villain: $1,200Hand: Ac 8c 5h 3sStraddle UTG to $10, five limpers, I limp, straddler checks option.Flop: Js 6c 4cEveryone checks to last limper on button who bets pot of $70. I immediately re-pot to $280. Everyone folds to villain who cold calls it.Turn: AhI...
  2. How big was the game you were playing at Venetian Ricky?
  3. Agreed CobaltBlue, but there are some ingenious moments. Exposing all of those parents of child actors/models and asking what they're comfortable with was quite shocking.
  4. He's had two opportunities to check-raise you with a flush and didn't do so. Now a wheel is made on the river and he suddenly ships everything in? Smells like he either made a wheel on the turn and is trying to scare you out or he missed hearts and wants the pot badly. If he flopped a flush, good for him, but I'd call pretty happily here.
  5. Looks like he has a flush draw and will fold if you lead into him. I'd check and see if he bets. If he does, re-pop him and take it down. He probably has Ad A xd x or Kd K xd x.

  8. Another One Bites the Dust by Queen is pretty appropriate when someone busts out at your table.
  9. Night Daniel, godspeed in Day 2 and the final table hopefully!
  10. I'm not saying that ALL donkeys will disappear, but with better players to play against and more of them, your own skills improve in time due to the environment being more talented as a whole. Raking pots against donkeys are nice and will always be a happy time; but improving your play and being able to elevate your own game also allows you to win more money and makes you less dependent on the donkeys.I'm not saying dead money isn't a good thing, because that's how many bankrolls are started. But, the harder you try to play against fields that are more skill intensive with serious players, t
  11. This thought isn't very fleshed out in my mind, but it did occur to me;If the U.S. constitutes around 70 - 80 percent of the online player base, a lot of the poorest players must come from that particular base, right? When the bill is signed into law, "casual" (nicest term for bad players) players may just give up playing online due to their lack of effort of finding loopholes. Would that in turn lead to strengthening the overall play of the remaining player base because of less donkeys?Feel free to flame, discuss, and such on my weird and somewhat optimistic tangent I've presented.P.S. Any
  12. B! I love my straight draws!
  13. You sure you're not a lawyer Daniel? That's pretty much what you said in your blog without the legal terminology in it. This will not end well for the players involved, and the WPT may just end up banning these players.
  14. If everyone went all-in like Humberto Brenes does, the poker world would be a better place.
  15. Well, 7 minutes into Day 1 of the ME, someone's already busted out. How would you deal with that kind of embarassment just from getting up from your table and walking (or running/crying/swearing) to the rail?Agh, stupid topic name, forgot the You in there obviously.
  16. Happy birthday Daniel! Here's to you getting pocket aces all week long at the Main Event!
  17. That would explain why, I was only 15 back in '99. Definetly didn't like those type of movies back then. Thanks for the answers, 2 in one minute!
  18. "That's a good move Fillmaff, I'm all in!""You see this is why I'm a worldwide poker champion because I've got... Horse#$%@!"Paul's daughter pushing that stack of chips to the middle was funny too.Only reference I didn't get was, "Call George Clooney because I got three kings!" What is that referring to?
  19. Esfandiari is definetly playing great in the episodes, aside from Harman's pocket queens which busted him. On his website, he even has a quote that's stuck with me. "I play pocket jacks the same way I play pocket threes."One thing I've never understood (possibly because I don't play NL cash games too often) is why the players have chips to bet with, and in addition to that, they have actual cash to bet with. Wouldn't it be easier just to have all chips? Does the cash have a psychological effect when it's bet in the place of chips? (i.e. Negreanu's bricks from Season 1 of High Stakes) An exp
  20. I stumbled across this site thanks to Wandigo's link. I'm going to be ordering this table today probably! http://www.bigslicksuitedpokertables.com
  21. Not really a matter of if something is going to happen now, but what happens. Harrah's cleans up their act and gets things right? Maybe they want to avoid the "inconvenient headaches" of running a tournament properly and sell the rights to another casino? Speculating aside, DN is about to come down on Harrah's like the hammer of Thor, the results will be favourable for the players and the WSOP as a whole, I'm sure.
  22. Your outburst could very well be the catalyst needed to ensure that debacles like this don't happen again at the WSOP. I'm sure a lot of the players were much too shy to speak up about it and decided to "go with the flow." But that's not what you pay good money for. You wanted to play in an event with specific rules with said money. (I'm sure this was your thought process so I don't mean to sound redundant.) When those rules changed, your money is not being used in the way you intended. I'm sure the majority of players would agree with you in this situation, regardless of the way you tri
  23. Here we go, as my summary of each episode continues!Hand #1:Esfandiari gets QQ and flat calls, Farha has Ac8c and raises, Esfandiari re-raises to which Farha goes all-in immediately. Esfandiari calls and Farha flops three aces, winning 44K.Hand #2:Mizrachi has Jc10c and calls, Chamanara has KcQc and calls, Farha has AhJh and raises, called by both of the other players.Flop comes 10 6 A, Farha bets 9k and is called by both players. Turn brings a 9 and Farha goes all-in for 29k, and wins the pot there for 47k.Hand #3:Farha has Jh4h and calls, Negreanu has 5c3c and raises to 2k, Chamanara calls
