  1. I think its a choice between folding and raising to 10,000Calling with a rubbish hand against 2 players seems ambitious as you would only be doing that to steal the pot later.Raising to 5500 forces both players to call which bloats the pot and would make your anxious opponents feel more pot-commited in later streets.Going all-in is committing too much to win too little and only helps you lose the maximum.Folding risks nothing but is passing up on a potential opportunity.Given the reads both players would struggle to call a raise to 10k so it might be possible to steal cheaply. The problem is
  2. Actually its the Krazy Kristian Krew, but that's just a little joke to break the ice.Rational, cool and collected have their time and place. Converse with me in the Strategy forum, as we have, and it’s all very polite. Here it is a different story. I don't act or sound crazy. My posts are clear and logic based. However I am acting obnoxious, loud and angry, and yes it's an act. This is a written forum touching on subjects that deeply affect peoples lives as opposed to discussions on continuation bets.Sometimes you need to be aggressive and push buttons, otherwise people will take their tim
  3. No reason?You may notice a number of posts here that are of the nature "I even have gay friends but...". If that doesn't offend your sensiblity I don't know what should.I do have gay friends and I find assaults on their right to love disgusting. Excuse me for getting upset.Let me show you something...You are an abomination because you are homosexual.orYou are an abomination because you are black.How much of a stink would there be if LMD posted the second?Why are you not outraged by the first?What gives him the right to hide either behind the fabric of religion? Perhaps you should read Dawki
  4. Give me a break. Some Christians believe homosexuality is fine, others don't. Therefore his choice on the matter is a personal one. If he states that it is an abomination that is his opinion. Just like it your opinion that Genesis is obviously not literal.He doesn't get to hide behind his religion.He is a homophobic prick. End of story. Boo f#cking hoo.Grow up baby. I am of the same demographics as you are, so how can it be personal?Perhaps you may have wanted to dodge the point that you stuck up for LMD because he is a fellow Christian or you're just too little to admit you were clearly w
  5. Dictionary time:Webster's Medical DictionaryMain Entry: ho·mo·pho·biaPronunciation: "hO-m&-'fO-bE-&Function: noun: irrational fear of, aversion to, or discrimination against homosexuality or homosexuals —If you call something or someone an abomination...a·bom·i·na·tion –noun 1. anything abominable; anything greatly disliked or abhorred. 2. intense aversion or loathing; detestation: He regarded lying with abomination. 3. a vile, shameful, or detestable action, condition, habit, etc.: Spitting in public is an abomination. Do I have to make it any f#cking clearer? He is homophobic.It
  6. No you go right ahead insinuating gays are abominations and that your family needs protection from them. Or that a picture of 2 men holding hands is 'sneaky' way of getting evil into your life.Not a homophobe or a biggot at all
  7. Okay, so now lets reapply context. What goes around comes aroundIt was LMD that brought up the original objection. Do you think a picture of 2 men holding hands looking for an apartment is promoting homosexual sex any more than the Jack & Jill scenario? Promoting it enough to warrant home-schooling?My guess is you don't and therefore you might just agree that the whole home-schooling thing is a bit of an over reaction. He try's to divert the issue by throwing in the 'protecting my family card' but anyone that takes a moment to actually think about it knows it's a front.His post was that
  8. Okay context then, Jack & Jill not wearing wedding rings?
  9. So, tell me then how does a picture of 2 men holding hands looking for an apartment cause a bigger impact on anyones family than Romeo & Juliet which describes lust, revenge, murder and suicide?
  10. Given that people have killed themselves over their sexuality/religious conflicts I'm not going to let you claim ownership of that debate. Sorry you don't have that right.
  11. So a picture of 2 people in love is enough to take a child out of school because it promotes sin?Would you take her out of school if it was Jack and Jill, without wedding rings?What on earth are you going to do when she starts reading the works of Shakespeare? Tons of sin involved there. What if they teach her history or current affairs? Or if she studies law or sees a picture of a policeman and a robber? Do you keep out of McDonalds because of the Hamburglar?You guys like to bang on about how there is no 'scale' of sin yet you are being very selective about which ones are okay. Surely the
  12. Hardly. There are Christians that would go down the list and debate those points.DS - you've stated before you don't believe that Genesis is the literal inerrant word of God so somewhere in that list you vary from brvheart and yet you are both Christians.I'll let you two work out which one is right and then that person can tell the gays they can't fall in love.My point & I believe renae's is that to believe that homosexuality is a sin you need to go through that list and tick all the boxes. Given that others don't including other Christians anyone telling a homosexual that what they are
  13. Her post is not relevant to my pov. I thought is was brilliant because it shows the line of reasoning that a person must process to define homosexuality as a sin and therefore be 'looked down up on' by RKIGS or 'tolerated but not accepted, hidden from children or rated not as good as mine' by LMD+t.The arrogance of a Christian to tell somebody who they can or can't love was wrapped up nicely
  14. It makes me smile because in less than 100 words renaedawn has pointed out that God may or may not exist If he does he may or may not have communicated with us If he did he may or may not have chosen some individuals specifically over others to record his rules If he did those individuals may or may not have been dicated to If they were they may or may not of recorded these dictations infallibly If they did these writings may or may not have been chosen to become part of the Bible If they were these dictations may or may not have been translated into English accurately If they were these Engli
  15. Anyone not offended by the stomach-churning arrogance here can leave their humanity at the door - it's broken.
  16. How long did it take you to realise that the table was that tight? Probably a couple of orbits at least?How often did you do it second in to the pot?
  17. See, that's my thinking. Most of these guys know that the tables are tight. The average PFR at most tables is 11-13% which means almost every hand is raised pf, and a bunch are 3-bet. It can't be AK, AA, KK, every time. Opening ranges are significantly broader than SSHE would suggest.If he is good enough to make this adjustment, he is good enough to realise not to make it from early position.Isolation plays and blind steals which increase PFR% above ABC standards come from later positions.With all info to hand ie 2/3 structure and UTG+1 being overly aggressive for the few hands the play be
  18. With that extra information I can appreciate trying to isolate by 3-betting. Calling would be wrong.At a tight table folding AQo is fairly standard in any position except the BB. Given the 2/3 structure calling becomes border line, but as I said before, given your read although undefinative you should want to isolate if you are going to play at all.
  19. Why is that I'm not surprised you didn't take up the offer? How about I sweeten the pot then? You obviously don't like me posting here. So let's say I offer to stop posting here in the religion forum.You start the thread and I go. Simple enough.The only conditions I put on it are that You title the post "10 unknown scientific facts in the Bible" You list 10 of your unknown scientific facts in the first post You never mention my offer as the reason for you starting the thread You must believe your facts to be totally true and defend them until the end (or openly admit you were wrong when you co
  20. If this is the norm at the table and the structure is 1/3 fold preflop
  21. Interesting that you chose not to reply to Bromich's statement then, as he/she didn't merely rearrange the meaning. Bromich clearly explained you were wrong. Go have a look again "I'm sorry Mattnxtc (or do you prefer Matt?) however the statements above attributed to you are not logically sound" I mean you claim to be this logical genius and yet when FullMonty, Farnan, myself and now BWToth and Bromich explain logic 101 to you, you start with all your rants.My favourite was in the thread you started to bash Monty... Copernicus's first reply in the thread to you? Face it Matt, you are a fool an
  22. Not offended at all. I see it as good opportunity to spend time with or thinking of my family and friends which is what is important in life. This happens throughout the year, but the time off work and the festive spirit lend themselves to making an event of it. If it means something to others for religous reasons, good for them.Those offended by it are surely those that are taking PCism too far
  23. Welcome and thankyou for stealing my thunder - just kiddingWell there you go Matt, are you going to start another thread to bash Bromich now or is the message getting through?On behalf of FullMonty, your apology is accepted.Matt... Matt...You there Matt?
