  1. So, I just had my second check in a row from Bodog bounce. This one was actually a replacement for the last one that bounced. A bit troubling. The answer I've gotten both times has been that they've changed payment servicers, as the government keeps cracking down on their dealings with banks. I suppose it's best to cash the checks immediately--I made the mistake of waiting a couple of weeks.Sure, it's only $300.00 (go microstakes!), but I sure would like my money.Anyone else had any problems with this? Apologies if it's already been discussed, but I didn't see a thread in my brief search.
  2. I assumed he meant "slowplaying the boat." So 2 outs to the better boat.
  3. Not even sooooooted. I think just about everyone playing at that level on Bodog is best friend material. Including me. Especially me.Who am I kidding...I just want more friends.
  4. 4c, actually.I did just call. They both had ace-rag and split. So, clearly it was a terrible call..... <sw>
  5. I think I just misread mtdesmoines first post as advocating a push. My bad. Reading comprehension in the toilet. Blame the public school system.Thanks, everyone.
  6. I appreciate the feedback, though it seems opinions are split on the proper move on the turn. While I do see the advantage of calling and reevaluating on the river, I'm curious to the rationale for pushing the turn. I agree that we're not going to get the BB to fold an ace, so what advantage does a push give us? Additionally, would we even want him to fold? Assuming we're currently beaten here by both villains (but with lots of outs to catch up), isn't it preferable to keep both involved?
  7. Oops. He was tricky, that one. :)Fixed the history.
  8. Copying from Bodog. Forgive me if I don't get the format/pot size/etc. quite right.Hero is new to table, so no real reads on either opponent. Hero has both covered:Hero (MP): $18.11Villain 1 (button): $5.78Villain 2 (BB): $9.40Preflop: Hero is MP with 10, J. 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.40, 1 fold, Button calls, 1 fold, BB callsFlop: ($1.25) 10, J, Q(3 players)BB bets $0.10, Hero raises to $0.60, Button raises to $1.10, BB calls, Hero callsTurn: ($4.55) K(3 players)BB bets $2.00, Hero calls, Button raises to $4.28 (all-in), BB calls, Hero ????Is this an insta-push? I'm assuming I'm up against
  9. Being a bad person and being disrespectful are two totally different things. He may be a great guy--I've got no reason to think he isn't, and he didn't seem to be celebrating explicityly to rub other people's noses in it (as we've seen from countless other players). Acting like that may be just the way he acts. It may be totally natural. That, however, isn't an excuse for it. It simply shows an amazing lack of self control. Whether he intends to be disrespectful or not, that's the outcome.
  10. Yikes. Glad everything's going to be okay. Here's wishing you a speedy recovery!Oh, and I think you should at least be the Featured Player of the Week on FCP for this.
  11. Gotta side with Phil on this one as well. DN, as he frequently does, appears unable to critically examine an issue without clouding the discussion with his personal biases.Plus, you can't call someone a "buffoon," misspell it, then accuse them of not proofing their work, without looking like a complete tool.
  12. It worked for me, but only on my 20,000th try.
  13. Sure it skipped it? My Tivo got it, but it looks like it started about 5-6 minutes late, so it seemed at first not to have recorded. Didn't miss much, anyway. It's not a particularly entertaining group this week.I don't mind the show in general, as I think some of the table talk from last week was interesting. They could get rid of the sporadic play-by-play/generally annoying comment announcer guy, though.
  14. I'm just starting to play PLO8 myself, so I'm finding your reports very helpful. Thanks for the insight into the low limit game (which is where I'll be spending my time).
