  1. Well Punxsutawney Phil saw his shado and General Beauregard Lee didn't see his.... funny article below though about General Beauregard Lee [the lesser known groundhog to Punxsutawney Phil] lol.... that just cracks me up.
  2. Doh! I hope your baby gets well soon! I'd concentrate on the family man.... poker can wait.
  3. I was just at Mirage the other day and they were spreading regular Omaha 5/10. I didn't see any announcements for O8 though, but I did see it on their list for possible tables.... so I'd call them and find out when they spread these games or if it's based on request.Someone mentioned that Excalibur spreads a low limit O8 game too, but I can't verify....
  4. That's Gwenn Stefani ;)I'm gonna go with Billy Corgan.... :bubblelol: while I like him he's obviously not much of a singer.... grrr.... Uhm.... I still don't have a good answer
  5. lol.... I like the candy one
  6. My point is proven with this statement. You think one thing, I think another. Just like most of the posts on this entire forum.
  7. Oh man that's a hard one.... Ugh.... Ozzy hehe, I dunno I can't make a decision to be honest.
  8. Smash, I've been waiting for weeks for you to personally attack me and I guess this is the thread you are going to choose and do so; so be it.You are successful in exploiting single words in other people's threads and nit picking them to death. That's fine and that's your style of arguement. Like most people you end up making points against, I am in agreement with you in certain aspects, but you are fixating on one specific item of my post.The point of my original statement is important because as I stated everyone has their own opinion. I could be Johnny Idiot coming in here and saying "ALL
  9. Yeh I don't think the arguement did anything for the sake of the information you were trying to gather.As for the live aspect of the game and that you had a read on him, I think if you had a read that he didn't have anything, then you did the right thing, but I just don't like risking your whole stack to make this move.I think the same can be achieved by not moving all-in, and probably works better 99% of the time.
  10. There is no correct way to play every single hand. For instance, some will say folding 27 pre-flop is correct, but if the flop comes 227 it's incorrect. See the logic?However, what I meant by my statement is that people on this board should not take each person's comments as the correct way to play each and every hand. Each person has his/her thoughts on how a hand should be played. Until someone can prove the correct way to play a certain hand based on some serious long term statistical analysis [and even that will have situations where it is not the best move] then nobody can say it's def
  11. I only try to steal with garbage when I am sure that the people in the blinds are timid players and not going to play back at me. Otherwise I will wait for the right opportunity and throw it in randomly.In other instances I will make a larger than normal raise with a hand that wouldn't merit such a raise from late position in hopes to win the pot right there. If they call or play back at me I can get away from the hand right there.That said I do make stabs with garbage hands, but I just choose my situations wisely.Stealing the blinds is an added way to increase your BB/hr so it's definitely
  12. You have to play your big hands fast. Unfortunately these hands don't play well in multi-way pots. Thus if it means just winning the blinds and limpers money on the flop, so be it. But if you slow play the hand or try to draw people in with smaller bets, then you set yourself up for giving people the odds to draw out on your, or at least see a somewhat cheap card.
  13. I'm certain everyone has been in a slump at sometime.I find that the best way to work through them is to review your play and figure out where your weaknesses may be and try to adjust accordingly. That alone won't get you out of a slump tho.Make sure you are not playing above your limts given the size of your bankroll. Make sure you are not bringing undo stress to the table/computer. If you are stressed or tired there is always another day to play.The one I find the most important is your attitude. If you come to the table worrying about just putting a win in the win colum, then you are de
  14. Getting value with Aces can be tricky. It generally depends on the players at your table and what your table image is. If you've been caught bluffing at some point, or won some hands with less than premium hands in your opponent's eyes, you will get more value out of your aces, and also get drawn out on more.So there is a double edged sword. Remember large pocket pairs don't play well against numerous players. You want to isolate one or two players and out play them or buy the pot on the flop. I know this doesn't sound like the best logic, but just give it a try.In addition always mix up
  15. No question, this is a fold hands down. You don't want to risk your chip stack at this point in the tournament versus another larger stack. If you are facing someone with a small amount then it might be justified to call, but this particular instance is definitely a folder.
  16. In most situations you are correct, as I mentioned above, but given the situation of the current pot it just seemed a bit fishy. The fact that your opponent was going on the same logic you were that it was just a steal etc was a main reason he was not going to let you out of the hand for free. When he helped his hand with a pair on the turn he figured he might as well call you down.I am just guessing at his logic, I have no clue.
  17. This is the most important point that should be made. I see so many comments that are to be taken as the bible that it's not even funny. I try to emphasize the way I make plays are good for 'me' and nobody else. I offer my suggestions based on how I see a hand or situation in particular.Anyway back on topic, I like betting into my flush draws too, but I wouldn't get stuck in a certain pattern. If you do your opponents will eat you alive after seeing similar situations more than once or twice. So mix things up and go based solely on the feeling for each situation.In addition you are implyi
  18. Yeh there is definitely way more to be made at the online games, the problem is once the skill level is obtained to make it to say 30/60 online you are dealing with people who can probably hold their own in the 30/60 game in Vegas. So your statement about competition isn't entirely true, but for the most part it is at the lower limits.The total number of hands played is a huge factor for me. Over the last month I've played 15k+ hands which is FAR more than I could play in the casino. If you figure your BB/100 at this rate you are making the same number, just over a shorter time.That said it
  19. I think your all-in bet was a little fishy to be honest which is why you got called down. Too often you find people trying to buy pots with all-in moves. Judging by the description of the hand it appears that neither one of you had anything strong. Since you moved all-in on a card that helped him but did not raise prior, he figured you for having a lesser hand. He was probably debating whether or not you have a slightly better hand but then figured he'd take a chance.Either way, I don't like the all-in move in this situation. 99% of the time it will work though so it's hard to say "don't
  20. I tink it's mind over matter to be honest. You have to convince yourself that playing online is no different than live play. Obviously it is, but you have to adapt and learn to love the online game as much as live games.I personally only miss the physical tells I get from live games, but there are similar things to watch for in online games.Alot of people experience what you are, particularly in the beginning of their online play. Stick with it and don't give up. If you give it enough time and enough practice you will start to win. Just avoid tilt and playing above your limits.
  21. Information regarding the forum tournaments can be found here
  22. C'mon Smash.... is that really necessary?
