  1. Yeah except it pops up and says "cannot download the update at this time, try again later" has done all day.edit: @GOCUBSGO - my point was that the playing of online poker has not been found to be illegal in the courts, and may never be under current laws. The main thing they are trying to ping them for is to do with the banking side. As far as the banking goes its to do with money transfers with US banks, which I do have nothing to do with.
  2. Tried to hop on FT to play a few hands tonight, found I couldn't get on. Subsequently discovered this whole sad business.All I can do is to tell the DoJ that I hate them and hope I can get my $$ back.This is what I sent them. Feel free to use it...MANHATTAN U.S. ATTORNEY CHARGES PRINCIPALS OF THREE LARGEST INTERNET POKER COMPANIESDear Sir/MadamI feel it necessary to voice my anger about the actions taken by the US DoJ. As a non-US citizen living outside the US I am outraged at the way your actions have impinged upon my personal freedom. As an avid player of online poker I now find myself not only out of a hobby for an indeterminate time, but also unable to access a not insignificant sum of my own money.Noting that the illegality of neither online poker nor of running a site offering online poker has been shown in a courtroom, I feel my aggrievement is justified. The US DoJ has no jurisdiction over my actions or over money belonging to me, provided I am not engaging in or supporting actions which are illegal and do fall under that jurisdiction.Rather than working with the industry to regulate, certify, verify and no doubt make a healthy tax profit, you have instead stepped on the liberties of not just your own people, but the liberties of those outside the United States. I do not support your actions, I do not wish to see those who manage these websites harmed by your overzealous righteousness, and I do not expect the actions of the US DoJ to step on my personal freedoms through no wrongdoing of my own.Sincerely ****************

  4. That can't be a real person. How the hell can someone play 1 million hands of 2nl then break even over the next million.
  5. His line doesn't at all feel like an overpair to me. No way an overpair just min raises that flop bet, which is so often a draw. My two biggest fears on the river are firstly that villain has Axss and is just going to snap the river because we could have a draw or a 9 or JJ or something, and secondly that villain has a set, and just flatted the turn because he now wants you to make that draw or bluff the river. Or maybe he has QT and is worried about AT/KT/Boats, but cant fold trips.I don't like it for a number of reasons. Pre-flop is marginal. Along with many regs I would raise the flop donk to ~$20 with most anything, at which point you pretty much have to give up. Villains don't fold hands to <1/2 pot bets all that often. Lastly if I am to assume no reads then I am 1000% certain that I never fire 3 barrels at the villain OOP with a weak draw.
  6. Best so bad its good but actually bad video has to be this

  8. So many bad calls start with "he can't possibly have XX...."
  9. Over thinking, over analysing separates the body from the mind.It all looks good, but is extremely read dependent. Your opponent needs to be reliable (good) enough to have a certain range, and understand showdown value.
  10. Raising looks really strong, probably just call.
  11. Focus on where you are now and where you can go, not where you were. You are never in a downswing, although you have just had one. Every hand is new.
  12. A2 hand, 4bet or fold these kinds of hands. This is an example of why its not a great idea to flat.66 jamKQ betting river is good if villain is a fish. If he is any good at all I prefer to check to him.
