  1. As a Poker fan, it's kinda cool to think of watching semi-live WSOP action. As a poker player, I don't like it so much. From a business perspective, I don't understand it. I imagine there's a not insignificant on-cost to do that for all these events near-live, so where does the additional $ come from? Do people have to pay for ESPN3? And if they do, will people?

  2. Something which I noticed at first, which I haven't seen mentioned elsewhere (definitely not trawling through 2+2 thread, too much garbage to sift through between each post of content):The AP Execs cited - one is Scott Tom. Is this not the same Scott Tom who's name was on the Potripper account from the previous scandal? Who we were all told was no longer involved?Maybe I'm missing something, or maybe it was unnoticed due to the size of the shitstorm, but that certainly stood out to me..

  3. Hmm I guess I'm not the only one who thinks DN was outplayed. Like I argued and then counter argued, DN ran horribly, but it does not change the fact that during some of his session he just simply got outplayed. My main point was that the loss will do him a lot more good than harm. It appears he already has some new ideas and strategy for how to approach this coming match. There I did one more full circle with you. Just because I don't know what both players are thinking in every single hand doesn't mean I can't tell who is a better player after watching entire sessions of 4 table HU. You keep talking about me being results oriented. If I was just being results oriented, why does DN feel the need to completely revamp his strategy against Isildur?Thought it was all just him running poorly and to say he needs to work on his game is just results oriented. Obviously not.
    I think I should be the one giving up now.. you really didn't listen. I said DN would be the only person who could say if he was outplayed or not.It's easier to just label you a complete idiot and move on.
  4. Because when I continue to make a valid counter argument you just revert back to your original response. Sorry I don't enjoy walking in a circle with you.
    What was your argument again? I just looked over your posts, and it seems you said he needs to work on his game because he lost this one session, and that he was "outplayed on several occasions", I said that was results oriented, you said "sigh i give up. you guys are right. DN has played masterful this entire time. He clearly has nothing else to learn. GG.". Rinse and repeat.I see no argument or counter argument from you there. I can see why you're results oriented though - you can't remember anything pre-results.
  5. so if I played Isildur you couldn't tell from 4 tables worth of hands, showdowns, and all the other info you would receive by watching the match if he outplayed me or not?at least on some of the hands?
    How could I? What information do you think is enough to determine if someone made a good or a bad play/was outplayed - the cards? If so, bingo - results oriented thinking.Without knowing your reasoning/logic behind a particular move, and/or how Isildur was thinking, how can I know if you were outplayed? Poker is a game of the mind, not just cards. To be 'outplayed' rather than 'coolered', it is purely making the other person make a misjudgement, and that is not determined by the cards. If you run into the top of someone's range, it does not render your call bad. You can make the correct play and lose, so how would I know if you were making the correct or incorrect play?
  6. sigh i give up. you guys are right. DN has played masterful this entire time. He clearly has nothing else to learn. GG.
    Never said that at all. DN lost, big style, and in less than 2/3 of the planned hands, no denial at all. I honestly believe that over a much bigger sample size Isildur is a favourite over DN where they both stand today, but not as big as the results today suggest. My objection was to the "he has been outplayed on several occasions" comment, which no-one can EVER know, ever, from watching. How do you know game flow, ranges, perceived ranges, history, etc. and believe to have enough info to deem a bet/fold/call 'bad' in any particular situation? Only DN could turn around after making a play and say "Wow, I didn't even have that in his range, he outplayed me there".From your posts I'm getting the feeling you think we're all saying "DN is the best and Isildur has a horseshoe up his ass" when no-one has once said anything like that, but you ARE being results oriented.
  7. I'm 0 for 4 with AK today and 0 for 4 against AK. Bad formula for tournaments.

  8. shutup
    And people bitch about why the amount of content on this forum is going down the toilet. Some new guy comes in posting some genuine poker content. Would you rather he posted a picture of another member you all know well pulling a face? Or bumped a thread from 2008? That would be more solid content right?
  9. hey , can someone give me a shout out , mr sparco or one of you lowlifes railing the final table i kinda feel like arsenic begging for a stake , only my fix is a 'wha up'edit, thanks mr sparco & troyomac, tomorrow i get to tell all my friends (two ppl) that a wsop bwand some guy who might of won a few things gave me a shout out on a ftit should be a new rule that i get a shout out on all final tables ...
    With how most people here are about the bolded, I think you've damaged your chances of any more shout outs...
  10. Joanne Liu http://www.pokerpages.com/players/lists/women-in-poker.htmtop 5 money makers of the womenthat link above will tell you who are the top rated women players
    I think he knows who she is.. it's that she is known as "JJ Liu" not "JoJo Liu". And you didn't answer the second point. When someone says "How do YOU know, have YOU ever played with them?", passing off second hand information doesn't really support it, especially as Poker Pages is very, very out of date it would seem.
