  1. FTP going belly up might be good for Stars but FTP being up amidst a big fraudulent management scandal is terrible. The FTP scandal drags down the potential of all sites by feeding the whole "online is rigged" fear. If Stars is really buying FTP I'm sure the message is "look online is safe" as much as anything. I'm sure FTP has some assets that would benefit Stars. I preferred their software and there's the rush patents (which could be worthless I know I at least had the idea way before FTP came out with rush) and there's probably not 100% overlap in the player lists. But really if the purchas
  2. Pretty cool. I played 2. Min cashed 1. 500% ROI. Now I just take that to the Million and retire.
  3. After withdrawing over half my roll and having little time to play I'm back at 100 and I think the biggest difference is that people at 200 are better able to adjust to exploitable play. I was sitting at a 100NL 6max table and this guy was playing like 50/30 and opening PF to 5X and had a 100% fold to 3-bet but I was the only guy 3-betting him. Also I think in general there are just far fewer fish at 200 than 100. But there are plenty of breakeven/losing/rakeback whoring regs you can exploit.

  6. So what do I do if I requested a check like 3 weeks ago and haven't seen it yet?
  7. Dunno about AP but on FTP I don't think there's a lot of difference between 25 and 50NL. I'd say stick w/6M. The rake at micro stakes HU is usually killer. The money will likely affect you at first but as long as it's not a lot of money in real life terms you'll get over it quickly.
  8. Go to reports. On top left it says "Select report name from list". Select Holecards.YW.
  9. Was there some sort of new CR vid advocating min-raise opening or something? I've seen tons of it today. If so can I please make that vid free for all my opponents to watch.

  10. So basically OP coined the term "absolute position" to mean what everyone else calls "relative position" and uses the term "position" to mean what the rest of us call "absolute position".But we got a most excellent link out of it. Odds that printing that out and asking the wife to "pick one" will work out well?
  11. Besides what everyone else has said about the KT hand another advantage to betting the flop is that it makes is possible for us to get it in when we hit on the turn w/o needing villain to raise at any point.

  15. EV stats in HEM are close to useless because they're only for all-in hands and only calculated based on the street where you got it all it.But, I think ...EV adjusted basically what you'd expect to make if you ran at exactly EV. So if you're all-in PF AA vs KK your ev adjusted would be 80% of the pot.EV $ Diff is what your actual differs from the EV. So if you're all-in PF AA vs KK for 100 and you win your EV Diff would be -20 and if you lose it would be +80. In other words you add the EV Diff to your actual to come up with EV adjusted.So if you run normal your actual winnings = EV adjusted an
  16. BB is a reg who loves to 3-bet (8%+) and I figured there was a really good chance he'd squeeze here. Once he does what's our play? CiB? Flat?

  17. So I'm on 2 tables.One has a 85/42 sitting on 9 buy-ins. I'm down 2 buy-ins (to another guy - AK < JJ and AK < TT both aipf). This table (6-max not deep) currently has 19 buyins on the table.On the other table there's a 97/29 who's up 1.5 buy-ins and I'm down a buy-in.This has been the tale of my past week. It's simply amazing. The tards keep winning and I keep losing.Edit: and of course the most tilting part is that i have to leave and can't stay to take the money back.

    Dear Ouch 8-s

    I have an ASUS EEEpc which is kinda similar. I'd say if you're never going to travel and/or you type a lot I wouldn't go the netbook route. But I love the EEEpc for what it does and if I were buying today I'd probably get the Dell Mini instead. I use it when I want to surf/bang out a quick e-mail from the couch or when I'm traveling and don't need to do any real work on a PC but would find a quick internet connection useful.
  19. The rule from the Robert's Rules is: So the floor ruled correctly.As for the "what if" the guy who shoved turned up his hand before the chips went in. Well I'd give the floor some flexibility here and force a call in most instances. I think it's pretty clear that the guy w/bottom set intended a call and if his action (flipping up his cards) causes the other guy to react then you can force the guy with bottom set to call.BTW, 99.9% of the time you don't kill a hand. You may penalize the player after but it's almost never correct to kill the hand.
  20. I'm such a rules nit that I actually study up on rules and read rulings and floor people discussing rulings and such even though I never have and likely never will work in a cardroom.Sad, I know.
  21. I think this part of Roberts rules is more applicable: By my reading this means that a player is allowed to "fold" at showdown and therefore the only player with a live hand would automatically win the hand. Oddly enough the "reason" I was given at Borgata was "for the cameras" which is completely retarded since any two cards you turn over at that point win. If the camera can see that I'm the only one with live cards that should be plenty. Besides they don't make you turn over your cards if you bet on the turn and your opponent folds.
  22. I think you're misapplying a different rule. If there's an all-in and a call both in an MTT both hands need to be tabled. The situation that Sprung is talking about isn't an all-in.I think the standard in most casinos is that the last live hand wins the pot whether it's turned over or not. So in this case they 2nd hand would not need to be turned over. If you remember the argument between Bobby Belande and Hellmuth on PAD it was over this exact situation. Non-all-in at showdown Phil is first to act and says "You got it" Bobby says "Muck your hand". Phil goes off on Bobby having bad etiquette b
  23. Right and if you watch it in the replayer it shows his hand, doesn't show Phil's hand (meaning it was mucked) and then pushes the pot to Phil.I suppose they could claim that his hand was shown and then he disconnected but at that point it should matter. And even if it did matter you'd think they'd turn up Phil's hand before pushing him the pot.
  24. Watching it in the tableratings replayer made me lol.
