  1. Ok after watching that episode, definitely see the major social awkwardness. Also did anyone else think that episode sucked? They lost a ton of $, the social awkwardness of the other house was a bit too much, a lot of new characters introduced, and they didn't even do the penalty stunt.

  2. dario won a 6max bracelet last year, maybe you only follow the main events?
    MrSmoky shipped Event 1 2 years ago. I mean...a ton of people who win bracelets or at FT's say they play online of some sort. Plenty of online "robot" players have had success live and to say otherwise is comical to say the least.
  3. I mean....I know I was mathematically eliminated.....but I go from a massive chip leader and winning 15/20 hands at one point during 5 handed...to out.Run into Aces w/ KQ99 < A4Then lose two races like J8 < 66 after 88x flop turn 6 riv 6 for insult to injury and QTcc < 59o rivs a str8.So depressing.Babboon comes back from like 200 chips to be chip leader in like 10-15 hands. What can you say except lol donkaments.

  4. still waiting for them to take over the wsop . i follow all 50+ events for 5+years now, there have been some good showings (rahn khan and dario plus a few more), but they are by no means balling in the wsop
    el oh el @ saying u follow all 50+ events then the only 2 you name are from the WSOP ME.how did this go unnoticed?
  5. They should have let you finish the game anyway, who cares it's intramurals. The team that's going to win our championship has 3 guys that played D1 and aren't even enrolled in school. Sort of glad we lost in semis, would have got embarrassed at Allen Fieldhouse.
    You get to play in Allen Fieldhouse? We only get to play in the practice facility. So sick I'm jealous.
  6. Did you win the im champ?
    Yes, but with an asterisk. 2nd half when we were down 10 they were checking the rosters and apparently some kids played on two teams and they got DQ'ed immediately. I feel like Barry Bonds.
    What if it's -ev in a vacuum but nets him some absurd metagame gold later on down the line because everybody thinks/knows he's a ridiculous spew machine who tries to bluff people off aa in 8 way pots?
    I was just talking about it being -EV in the long-run. But this hand easily could've gone a different path (i.e. BG shoves turn, PE shoves turn, PE shoves flop, etc.) and suddenly it cost him $ to have this "metagame gold." Not sure if having some "metagame gold for bluffing people off AA in 8 way pots" will overcome the expectation you have in making a play like this.Granted I don't even pretend to know the thinking levels for these games, so maybe making a play like this would be profitable in having mental edges over someone. Because there are probably quite a few hands like this that don't go to showdown at the nosebleeds and we never hear about them because they're not televised.
  7. I think the reason that Dwan's flop raise might be a little ambitious is that with that loose of a lineup, it's still quite plausible that someone has trips. Like, David, Eli, Ziig, and Daniel are plenty capable of having 2x with position on Dwan.
    This except FYP to include some more you missed.I think it's a very high variance spot, as are most big bluffs like that. I don't pretend to know as much as Durrr or even a lot of people on here, just trying to stimulate discussion and if anyone else thinks this play may actually be -EV in the longrun.edit: i.r. bad person for posting back2back
  8. I guess my first point wasn't really a point, it was leading into #2 and that was Barry was representing JJ+ and was never folding it. Or at least that was my interpretation from his podcast. That is if he went HU with Dwan. I told you it'd be incoherent. :club:

  9. Alright I'm throwing this together quickly before my intramural bball championship (thinly veiled brag), so it may be incoherent. My apologies. Here we go.........As you know poker is about the long haul and not a small sample size. No one plays the exact hands the exact same way and there is "balancing" to what you do (i.e. you don't 3-bet ONLY you're top 3% hands, etc.).Now onto why I think it may be -EV, and keep in mind most of this analysis is coming from Durrr's POV:1) Durr's flop raise. I don't think Durrr expected PE to wake up with trips here, although no doubt once PE calls Durrr has to know he has at least trips (as the post-hand table talk showed). But raising BG in this spot is borderline-suicidal given BG's line. He raised PF, got 7 callers and is now c-betting. As BG stated in the podcast, that should signal to EVERYONE at the table including Durrr "I have JJ+". BG also says he's never betting 22 or TT here and I don't think he's EVER betting 33-99 or any overcards (AK for ex.) that bricked, here as that would be mentally retarded.2) BG states in his podcast he knew before the show he would have confrontations with Dwan and would have to play for stacks in some tricky spots. This is one of those spots. So in short, if PE doesn't wake up with trips, BG is 3-betting everytime (according to him). This gives me more reason to believe that this is a retarded play post-flop by Dwan and I'm sure Dwan knows he's going to get looked up light.3) PE doesn't ALWAYS fold everytime in this spot, sometimes he gets it in with this exact hand. What that actual % is, is unknown, but I don't think Dwan has played with PE enough to know that PE folds this 100% of the time.4) EVEN IF PE folds, there is still a % of the time BG gets it in vs Dwan here with his AA, which according to his podcast he almost did.5) PE doesn't always have to have 2-baby here. As far as Dwan knows he could have A2 (he doesn't know for a fact Barry has AA so he knows A2 is a possibility) and any other 2x where PE doesn't feel like Tom has such a high chance of having a bigger 2 if that is in fact what Dwan has. PE could also have TT although unlikely given Tom's hand. I believe PE was in the SB in this hand which gives him a wider calling range because he's getting ridiculous odds in such a big pot where there's already 6-way action.Maybe some of the Challenge Thread people who are better than me can further analyze this if they agree with me, or give counter examples and prove me wrong.I have to say this is the most interesting hand I've ever seen on TV, bar none. I think it's way above Doyle's QQ fold to Chip Reese in terms of being interesting.On another note, NOBODY seems comfortable playing these limits besides Dwan. Every decision just seems to cause so much agony for players except Dwan.
