  1. That is a limit game. They don't have a cap on limit games. The cap is for NL games, and the most one player can lose per NL hand is $100,000.
  2. Hassan Slack is Hollingol from pokerstars. He has basically dominated top NL on stars for a real long time, and now has moved up to bigger game on UB.
  3. Just curious if there is anyone from Virginia here that can help me find a game, hopefully around virginia beach. I'm here for work for a while and want to get in some live games without having to drive all the way to atlantic city. thanks.
  4. So if it is unsafe to use your neighbors unsecured wireless, how unsafe is it to use your own if neighbors can connect to it. I am staying at my buddies apartment for a while and am connected to his network, but who knows if everyone on the block is as well? Can I be sure no one is stealing all the hard earned porn I've spent days accumulating????
  5. You seem to be a very bad poker player, but to get better you don't need to read SuperSystem or Small Stakes Holdem, just re-read your posts and take your own advice. You know when your beat, but you don't fold... does that make any sense?If there is 4 to a straight on the board and someone is betting into you or calling your bets, it is likely you are beat. And if in fact they do have the straight you are what we like to call drawing dead, and thats not a good position to be in.Also, you recognize that small pre-flop bets with monster hands isn't working.... hmmmmm then what could I do???????
  6. What did you expect people to say here. "Yeah Kings are pretty, I'd call."?This is one of the worst gaps to have in your poker game. Getting attached to hands will make you a consistent loser. You probably wouldn't call the all-in with a gut shot draw, but you would have a better chance at winning that hand than this one.Look again at that flop and think about the kind of hands you can beat. You currently beat KQ, KJ, QJ, KT which are all extremely unlikely to re-raise all-in.You played this hand poorly from the start, and the call and the logic behind are horrible. I'm sorry, but its just hor
  7. Speak for yourself ass.hole!!!Kidding obviously. I really just wanted to say good luck on the tourney circuit and I am sure many others (including me) would like updates on any events you play. When the time comes I hope you can give updates like DN does. You should really get a Travis.
  8. You know I don't think I have seen HOLLINGOL lose in a while. He has just been killing lately. Yesterday or day before he had 38k at the 10/20 NL on PS and the max buy-in is 2k. Amazing. He simply owns NL on pokerstars and now seems to be doing very well at UB as well.
  9. Pushing w/ 33 here is a bad bad play. After pushing so often you have given a loose image and therefore more people will be willing to call w/ marginal hands. The problem for you is any marginal hand is 50/50, or if one of eight people behind you has any PP (besides 22) you are a 4 to 1 dog. So, by pushing with 33 you are hoping everyone folds, but there are 8 hands behind you and with your image you'd probably be called by like A9 or better.It is just way to likely you will get called and your HOPING to be a coinflip. Bad situation. Wait, pay the blinds, because even if you lose those two han
  10. Nice post. Just to clear up, I didn't mean to sound like an ass when I said the post didn't help, however my post was about not always employing the 'play tight early' strategy and the first sentence of his post was "Play tight early is probably the best advice."I understand that this is the strategy widely written about, which is why there are some players who you can tell are using it and take pots off of them. There are TONS of maniacs in almost all levels of SNGs, and clearly they are to be avoided early. But you can usually peg those that are sitting back and waiting for a hand. With thes
  11. I guess I should have mentioned that I didn't mean $5 SNGs. I am mostly talking about $20-50 SNGs which may be quite different.
  12. Occasionally I'll enter a freeroll just to go all-in every hand until I bust. I have no interest in playing it, I just think it can be fun. It can be threaputic (sp) after playing tight or taking a bad beat.
  13. You are right, each SNG is different and the same strategy should be applied all the time. What I am saying is that the 'play tight early' strategy is so common amongst other players that playing aggresive early is a better strategy when you see it.And yes, if you double up early you can make the money a fair amount of the time, but getting blinded out and taking 3rd is not a profitable strategy. To be a consistent earner is SNGs you MUST take 1st for a good percentage of your ITMs.
  14. Why would you tighten up when you get over 3000???? I see people doing this all the time and it makes no sense. People will double up off some idiot in the first three hands and then not play the next 2o. While you sit out the rest of the table catches up and you get blinded off and soon you are average stack.If you get the big stack early, and you know play like to 'play tight early' the correct strategy is to push. Like many pros will tell you, if the big stack at the table is aggresive, people don't want to get into pots with you unless they are fairly certain they are going to win. That ma
  15. It doesn't really help, no.What it says is 'play tight early' which is exactly what I wasn't talking about in my post. I don't think that is the correct strategy simply because it is so widely employed. If everyone 'plays tight early' who the hell is going to be picking up all those pots.
  16. For all you SNG players I wanted to know what strategy, if any, you employ in your SNG play.Everything you read on SNG, and most people who talk about their strategy say "play tight early and get aggresive when it gets down to the bubble". Well I would normally consider myself a tight-agressive player, but I also like to react to how a table is playing and adjust my play accordingly.If most of the tables strategy is to play tight early, I find it to be a good time to pick up numerous small pots against the players who obviously don't want to get to involved.Now there are some maniacs who I tr
  17. Why do your blinds go to the center of the table and then reappear in front of you when it is your turn to act? This place needs a lot of work.
  18. This has got be be the worst site ever (except for the fact that I hit quads on my 3rd hand). The dialog box says nothing about the game, you can't see the lobby while playing, the screen is confusing. So many problems and I've only been on for five minutes!Oh no fold check box thingy.Hey BigDMcgee- how did you keep betting into that big pot (w/ KQ) when the screen said you were all-in pre-flop???? lol Site is kind of a jopke.
  19. That is what made them great!!! They were to drunk/high/whatever else you can be to have soul. Real Rock stars drink, do to many drugs, and care to much about groupies and beating people up to have soul.But Nirvana was a great band as well. Chili Peppers have kinda gone down in my book over the last couple years. Its like Jerry Rice... you were the greatest, please stop!
  20. I actually am just returning to SNG play. I spent about a year only playing SNGs, but ventured away as I started to play live much more frequently. Playing live games so much I got back into the cash games online as well. They are very profitable but the variance can kill me sometimes. I returned to SNGs to earn a steady hourly wage rather than deal with the big swings of online cash games, and it has been working out well.I don't have the huge days online as much anymore, but I have a much more consistent income.
  21. yeh it's really a topic that no one really touches down on, and want to soak up as much info there is on the subject.I use Pokercharts, but they don't have a ITM% chart which is the only thing that sucks at that site, do you know of a free site that does this?No. I just use an Excel sheet that I made myself. Keeping your ITM % is very easy though. you could even just write down how many you played and where you placed.
  22. F the OP!!!!What the hell kind of poll is this????????????Are you a some kind of fu.cking idiot??????I think it is a trick question and everyone will obviously vote "None of the Above" while simutaneously thinking about.....Edit: Ok I obviously don't know how to insert a picture, but its....Guns 'N' Roses(Image cool band pics here)
  23. just a test. please ignore.[/img]
  24. I have been struggling with this exact question lately. There is a good thread on it on pocketfives.com right now entitled SNG ROI. I think that the more you play you are lowering your ITM %, however since you are playing more it can even out. Personally I play 2 or usually 3 at a time. I try to focus on one table at the beginning 2 or three levels to get reads on peoples style of play then start up a new one and focus more on it. This way you have a feel for the table and can multi them.You might want to try both and see which gives you a better ROI. Multi tabling you will finish out of the m
