  1. 6 players with exactly even chip stacks (not realistic stupid scenario) I would fold. I guess on the first hand of a sit and go which is clearly not what the OP was referencing you could have equal chip stacks and I would call their with normal payout structures. Against random chip stacks and players who have any clue at all I would obviously call.
  2. From a profile view they look almost identical. Hard to find many pictures of WOJO though.
  3. I had seen all these episodes before and there is some pretty good action in them. The only problem is the announcers. They won't shut up for a second and its hard to listen to what the players are saying. That is one of the most entertaining parts of any poker show.
  4. How would they know? Annette played against him once in the Party Poker Premier League and those are just sit and gos. Annette seems to think all of the most successfull live pros are bad. We had a thread about her criticizing Ted Forrest just a couple months ago. IDK maybe Phil Hellmuth is clueless if a couple internet players say so.
  5. No one should really criticize Hellmuth in no limit tournament play. He plays very differently then other players and that is what sets him apart. There are so many different approaches and styles that one can use to be successful and that is what makes it a great game.Hellmuth to me seems like the best short stacked player there is. In this very tournament at the end day 3, Hellmuth had exactly 100,000 in chips (less then 12 bb) and was 44 out 58. At the end of day 4 he had 1,399,000 and was 3 out of 18. How did he do this? By never being all in and called once. I follow his tournaments clos
  6. Thanks, I guess I need to read better. I thought I even checked that twice.
  7. I think Wasika/Forrest is the best first round matchup. Daniel said that Forrest is among the best all time heads up but picked Wasicka. I would give Wasicka a slight edge too.Anyone notice a bias in his picks against the players against the WPT? I think he picked against every one. Hellmuth is of course the favorite to win it all.
  8. Were all of you who are receiving the bonus playing during the outages?
  9. Is Full Tilt still down now for everyone?
  10. I think the actual tournament starts on the 29th. http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/23109497/ . It is listed as running from 2/28 - 3/2 everywhere but 2/28 is just the selection party which I am sure they will be allowed to miss. Hellmuth missed it last year and I don't think I can stand two years in a row with no Hellmuth in the Heads Up Championship.
  11. From the interview with Hellmuth it appears he called with 99. Hellmuth seems to be playing very differently from the way he normally does. He is consistently raising 4 to 5 times the big blind. Usually he is like Negreanu and raises less then 3 although he varies it.
  12. The only way Hellmuth loses is if he gets unlucky. Or if the blinds get real high at the final table.
  13. Did Full Tilt go down for anyone?
  14. Cost me about $500 in satelittes but in.

    DING DING DING. Here is the answer but I guess it just gets ignored. You asked if anyone could explain it and there it is.It really isn't that big of a deal anyway. If someone has a missed draw then they may sometimes fold on the river to a super small bet. I personally would have called anyway for that amount even if I was playing the board hoping that maybe the other person was too. If this was a MTT then it would be pretty hard to plan on being at the same table. You also can't rule out a missclick. Don't just assume that there is collusion when you see a strange play.
  16. Sharkscope actually has a leaderboard for streaks. The most for HU wins in a row is 37 (just recently done), 33 is second and 20th is 20 wins in a row. For single table SNGs ( I guess 5 or more people) 9 is the most and many have won 7.I have won 14 straight HU SNGs before and 15 times have had a streak of 9 or more.
  17. Does anyone know if Moneymaker has cashed in any sit and gos recently? I know he had a nice streak about a month ago.
  18. It seems to me that whenever he gets lucky he always makes sure to say that the other preson deserved to win the pot. He fully admits that he is a horrible loser but a gracious winner. It doesn't make it ok but he does at least realize it. His first win he definitely got lucky but I dont see where he got "that" lucky on the second one. The hand against Bellande where he had the worse ace almost anyone would have gotten the chips in. He still would have had a decent amount left had he lost too. He got lucky against Sheikan with the A4 vs KK and Q2 vs AJ but there was basically no play left at
  19. What is nice for low stakes players on FT is that they give partial points. Since I last played there, PS didn't do this and the pot had to be a certain size to recieve any points which basically leaves out the low stakes players.
  20. Hellmuth never said that it was correct or that you should play 4 cards higher than a 9. He was just telling how he tried an experiment with it and how it failed.
  21. They usually end up cancelling them everytime I have seen it. They try to see if everyone has reconnected but that usually doesn't happen especially when it is down this long.
  22. Was in a $100 HU sit n go. Was down 2 to 1 so maybe it will be a break if I get my money back. Did anyone else's connection come in and out at first then completely go down? My opponent didn't seem to be having any problems and I suspect he may have blinded me off right away.
  23. You are putting up your own money and if you are going to be at a disadvantage because other people are stalling then you should feel free to do it too. It would be nice if no one ever stalled but as long as they are allowed to then they will. I actually have been sending emails to Full Tilt the last couple of days asking them to start hand for hand sooner. They currently don't start it until only one person is left on the bubble. This really ruins the integrity of the satellite.
  24. I actually found it quite funny.
