  1. Couple things here. Your raise is perfectly fine on the turn, but when he re-raises here, I am just flat calling with 5-4 club club. It's not a made hand and that's what a lot of people seem to forget. I'd rather have 2-2 and catch a set in this position obviously then 5-4 club club and catch a club on the river. Not to mention with the flat call I have the ability to play the hand in position. It's a bit of a cooler like some people have pointed out, but I definitely disagree with them getting on you about shoving. It's a bad play to fold 5-4 club club after you have raised ... but it's not always a bad play to let 5-4 club club go. Now, yes - folding after you have re-popped it is a losing play - but that's why you should have just flatted, and not re-opened your pot. Your only 2 plays were to push after his initial re-raise at that point or to just flat (which is what you should have done). 5-4 club club isn't a hand you really want to be risking your tournament life with. I feel like a lot of players get into trouble with suited connectors because they love to get into those race situations. You had position on this hand and that's the key. If you flat, and the river comes the Ace of diamonds, it's really easy to get away from 5-4 club club. If you're saying you re-raised and then folded after he shoved, not a good move. Next time you should just flat and play your position in the pot.

  2. Any chance you can make it so you're only withholding a % for taxes if the investor doesn't provide the necessary information? That's typically the standard, and makes it a lot easier for the people buying shares should you bink a score when it comes to dealing with their own taxes (it's a lot messier to deal with if it's withheld automatically)

  3. sweet!! finding out its 18 has honestly made my vacation....now just to make sure i can pull myself out of the hard rock before midnight so i can sleep and get up and bowl on time :rolleyes:


    Did you wake up on time? We should meet up if you're still here

  4. I'm not sure how the bolded part of #3 is different from #2, but ok.
    The point of the raise is not to get value nor is it primarily to get the opponent to fold there (although in some cases they will fold a slightly better hand or a draw, which is a very good result). The point is to put the opponent on notice that we like our hand and its going to be diffuclt to bluff us out of the pot.
