    That's really funny. It reminds me of this time I wasn't able to go to church, but I told my mom I'd drop my brother and sister off there anyways. So, I'm listening to Norma Jean in my car(and I generally listen to music really loud in my car) and as we're pulling up to the church my sister taps me on the shoulder and says "turn that down! we're at church" I said "It's a christian band!" Then she says "well they can't tell that" Needless to say, I didn't turn it down.

    Just wondering what, if any, religious music you guys listen to.I'm not a huge fan of conventional religious music, however, I do listen to a lot of music made by religious(mainly christian) musicians or have religious influences. If any of you are into harder music, and haven't heard of these bands, you should check out:mewithoutYou (www.mewithoutyou.com www.myspace.com/mewithoutyou www.purevolume.com/mewithoutyou)Norma Jean (www.myspace.com/normajean)the chariot ( I believe its www.myspace.com/thechariot)underoath (www.myspace.com/underoath ... not a huge fan, but its still al
  3. This might be the worst/most rediculous thread ever.My major beef with the arguement is this:Poker is not like other sports.In Basketball, or Football....you have to be selected to be a professional.In golf, you have to be consistantly good for a long time, and qualify for tournaments. An amateur "could" get lucky and beat a pro one hole, if the pro messes up, or by some freak accident, but an amateur couldn't get lucky and beat a pro for an entire tournament.In poker, you are a professional by virtue of making money, plain and simple. the "pros" you talk about are just normal people who pla
  4. You stole my name.I don't like you.P.S. I spell mine Erek, so I guess I can let this slide for now, since my name is way better.

  6. I don't believe there is a "right" way and "wrong" way to play poker. HoweverThere are plays that are "stupid" and "retarded", or "donkalicious" if you prefer.
  7. haha, fair enough.well played.Further proof that gambling is never a bad thing.
  8. I'm so confused if you had Ace 4, then you got a 6, you have 21.....so no 7 or 5 neededIf you had a 4, then a 6, then a 7, then a 5.....now your total comes out to 22

  10. I watched the Sit 'n' Go video and the 4-tabling O8b video. The O8 video was decently informative, but nothing you didn't already know if you're a winning O8 player. The Sit 'n' go video was very helpful, very informative, the only problem is that if was a 500 sit n go, so the play was a little bit better than you'll find in your typical 5 and 10 dollar sit n gos
  11. This is kind of a hypothetical play based out of home game hand that I played. We decided to play a 4 player freezeout, 1,000 chips each, blinds start at 5/10 and go to 10/20, then 25/50, then 50/100, 100/200, 150/300...etc.anyways, there are three people left, with stack sizes looking like this:Button: 500SB(me): 1000BB: 2500blinds are at 50/100button folds, I have 34s and decide to limp in since there hasn't been a ton of preflop aggression, and I still have some room to play. The bb raised 300 more to a total of 400. Now, normally I would just dump, however, the bb is my best friend, we'
  12. I was wondering if someone could possibly briefly discuss the PartyPoker Steps. What are they, how do they work, etc?I've seen them mentioned by several people as somewhat of a bankroll builder and was just wondering what exactly they were, since I'm not too much of a party poker player. Thanks for the advice in advance.
  13. I'm pretty sure that's the kid from Alabama(he goes to the Univ. of Alabama) that final tabled the Aussie Millions.
  14. That might be the most ignorant statement ever. Raymer is known for being very very aggressive and bullying the table when he has chips. Forget the fact that the television shows are so heavily edited that you can't form an accurate opinion about how somebody plays, did you even watch the middle episodes from the 2004 world series where he was at the table with Mike Matusow and John Murphy? Raymer might be one of the best right now when it comes to playing a big stack. Second, I wouldn't call making the final table of a prelim event in '05, 25th in the main event that year because of a bea
  15. Will products in the store ever be available for real money purchases rather than just FCP points? I know that Flopgear.com has a few t-shirts and hats available, but I was just wondering if perhaps I'd be able to buy something sometime soon instead of having to deposit and play a ton.
  16. This thread reminded me of a question I've been wondering about for a while, since I don't play much online.How do deals work online? Like, do you just have to play it out and then transfer money to the other players or how does it all work?
  17. 480This book is obv rigged because I'm pretty sure there's no way I'm that good.I tend to read situations very well, however, I think I scored high because of the multiple choice aspect. If I have three different bets I can make, I can pick out the right one, but picking the right one when you can literally make any bet is a bit harder, but I think my situation analysis is pretty good. I also think I made a lot of mistakes in the book by being too aggressive in late position with small pairs and mediocre hands like A-T and A-J.My favorite aspect of the book is the hands that involve pros pla
  18. well...nevermind thenthanks for your post, I see what you're saying and it's helpful
  19. I think folding is the best play.Using the SAGE heads-up system for optimal push-fold situations(which you can find in an aritcle on cardplayer):after the blinds are taken his stack is 3,000 which is an R(ratio of small stack to big blind) of 2(its actually 1.5, but we'll round up).With an R of 2, you should be pushing out of the small blind with the top 79% of hands, or if you've read the aritcle, a power index of 21. 7-2 offsuit is not one of these hands.The next hand, you'll be the big blind and they'll be the small blind. After blinds are taken, his stack will be 5,000 and that gives an
  20. Is the Hard Rock 18+? Or what about the place in Orlando?
  21. I'm just wondering how mixed games work. Are the game rounds timed? Or, does the game change everytime the button passes around the table once, and, if this is the case, how is that worked out in the stud rounds? Do you still pass the dealer button and just not worry about it? Thanks in advance for any help.
