  1. He has a book, sponsorship deal with PartyPoker & announcing gig. Are you sure about that?I agree with the rest of your post, btw. Just wanted to get to that before the douchebags do.I'd consider that the poker world rather than the business world but yes lol.
  2. see my comment above and lighten the hell up. Yes - Mike Sexton makes a lot more money than me at poker...goody for him. I'm not a pro poker player, I'm a business man. I'm sure I make a lot more money than Mike Sexton in the business world. Money has nothing to do with him saying something very funny while announcing.
  3. Oh I see...so in life you're only allowed to laugh at someone's comment if you've accomplished more than them in their profession? Obviously Mike Sexton is more accomplished than me at poker...doesn't mean he doesn't say silly or funny things that can be laughed up. Lighten up. Oh - and I'm neither a little kid nor a flamer so cut the crap and grow up.
  4. Mike pointed out something important tonight that I think we should all try to incorporate into our live play. When Chris Ferguson was dealt pocket aces ("weapons of mass destruction"), he told viewers to note how Ferguson reacted. So naturally I watched closely since Chris is a pro and a world champion. He said "notice his reaction folks...notice that he doesn't act elated and he doesn't start jumping up and down." By pointing this out, Mike caused me to realize that if I act elated and start jumping up and down when dealt aces, I'd could possibly tip off my opponents that I had a good h
  5. IIRC Lawson was the guy who had no clue how pot limit worked and saying things like "ummm...I bet uhhh...the most that I'm allowed to bet!"
  6. I would say you would up in a situation where you had just over a 50% chance to win the hand and you didn't win. Not much you can do about that. Either way you were vulnerable to an ace and an ace fell on the flop. Happens. Obviously you could look back and say that you should have flat-called and then thrown away your hand either when re-raised or when an A fell on the flop if you're looking for some scenario that would have kept you in the game, but you played it fine. There's no apporach that's gonna get you a 100% win rate - you're still at the mercy of other players and the cards.
  7. That's the one thing that I was thinking - that they have something like 98s and this way if they do hit a monster flop, it's a bigger pot. That would make sense except for the fact that any increase in pot size is seemingly negated by the fact that at least 10-20% of the time someone reraises after that and the original minimal raiser has to throw away their chips. Obviously they're idiots and not thinking about this. It just always seems so silly when everyone bets and then one person makes this bs raise and then you go around the table again with everyone quickly calling the raise to end
  8. Like everything else there's advantages and disadvantages. Online is MUCH faster and you can play in your living room wearing boxer shorts. You can also do 20 other things at the same time. In fact (and it's probably not a good thing), it's rare that I'm NOT doing a bunch of other things while playing online poker. It's definitely convenient though to be able to play any type of game at any level whenever you feel like it without leaving your home.
  9. lol - yeah the constant "limit" raises are annoying too. By the time both parties have reraised TWICE, you KNOW they are both ending up all-in. No reason to waste time doing it in stages.
  10. The minimal raise in a very multi-way pot in the early levels of a NLHE tournament? ie - Everyone has T1500 and blinds are 10-20 and 4 people limp in (with a couple still to act) for 20 and someone raises to 40? I've been seeing that a ton lately and I never get it. It doesn't chase anyone out of the pot (no one who put in 20 isn't gonna call another 20 with that many chips in their stack), it doesn't scare anybody or cause them to respect your hand, and it opens up the possibility of a reraise (where the original raiser invaraibly folds and loses their chips anyway). It's simply annoying
  11. Another Rush fan? Nice! I'm a diehard Rush fan myself...
  12. What's the best poker related screen name that you can come up with for an online dating or social networking site profile? Typically you have things like "Sexy&Smart," "SWJM29," "NYCAli," "outdoorlover" etc.What kind of cool poker terms could apply in this situation?All-InAces UpRoyal FlushNut Straight (actually has good secondary meaning)RounderBig RollHigh SocietySmooth CallWired AcesWhat do you all think?
  13. Other than KK, it's tough to imagine ANY hand possibly calling a pre-flop all-in on the first hand...especially after when people are limping in so probably no one has a great hand. No one wants to bust out on the first hand and people want to shake the rust off and get into the groove. To me, since the blinds are very small, the best gamble might be to raise like 5-6x the BB and hope that someone calls or comes over the top of you because they think you're stealing or a pro thinks they can outplay you after the flop so they call with anything. Otherwise make the standard raise and hope for
  14. In addition to all of the above advice, another way to loosen your game a little is to stop giving too much credit to every raiser. Raises don't always mean aces or kings. To force yourself to call raises, consider the implied odds. If the blinds are 50-100 and someone raises to 300, odds are they're in for at least another 300 on the flop if not much more, so you're being laid a good price if you actually hit the flop. Think of it that way to justify calling and loosening up a little. Since more people online seem to be raising with nothing these days, you can also sometimes steal pots b
  15. What kind of weekend rate does Borgata give for Poker players? How does that work in terms of setting it up?I applied for (and received) a credit line there, but haven't played there or stayed there yet...
  16. Yeah - you can use them for any tournament including sng's. That even applies to heads-up tournaments. Unless you never plan to play on the site again, it shouldn't be too hard to convert it to cash with all those options. Play a few $15 sng's or $10 headsup matches and you ought to be able to convert it to a close enough amout pretty quickly.
  17. A month seems more than reasonable for comments like this. Who wants to win a hand and then have to hear that it was a ****ing joke that he made the play and one and only a fuking retard would make that kind of play? I've actually completely turned my chat OFF b/c I can't take the comments anymore. You don't like the play I made? Tough! Maybe I had a read on you. Maybe I knew you were bluffing. Maybe I made a bad read and thought I was in a better position than I thought I was. Maybe I'm just bored and drunk and felt like gambling. For whatever reason I made my play, it's MY play and
  18. Generally $4,000-$8,000 mixed, generally at the Bellagio but can be at other places if there's a tournament in town. Primary players include Doyle, Ivey, Chau Giang, Barry Greenstein & Chip Reese.
  19. Poker Stars has a million different methods. They have a $650 tourney every Sunday that gives a seat to 1 out of every 17 players or so. There's plenty of satellites to that including an $80 satellite each night at 12:30 am. They have the $160 double shootouts referred to above. They also have a $33+R that awards a seat. Party Poker generally has satellites into a daily $328 tourney that offers 1 seat for every 45 players.
  20. She just filed for divorce from her 73 yo husband too...
  21. It's an easy call from where we're sitting Vince, but that's because using the exclusive BK brain cam WE CAN SEE THAT SHE'S FORGOTTEN. But when you're sitting at that drive-thru and the cash register is open, it's difficult to not have your money ready and waiting. This is world class poker we're witnessing here Vince! BTW - Stealing's bad whether you can get away with it or not. It's about doing the right thing and while BK might not miss it, this lady could get in trouble for coming up short.
  22. You click the option for Party & Stars to save your hand histories on your hard drive and then there's a section in PT where you direct it to that location and it automatically adds the updated hands every x minutes that u tell it to check while it's open - so no, you don't have to do anything after the initial setup. Not sure about play money.
