  1. Or you could just ask them to add rakeback to your existing account. They'll give you the standard "Rakeback is a privilege" e-mail, but then in a few weeks you'll get another one telling you how to sign-up.
  2. So I swear I remember seeing an animated gif of an NHL team taking the puck from behind their net then forming the Flying V in an actual game. The internet is failing me, however, so I'm starting to think I imagined it all. Ring a bell with anyone?
  3. Full Tilt Limit Hold'em, $4.00 BB (8 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.comPreflop: Hero is MP2 with K 10 2 folds, Hero raises, 3 folds, BB callsFlop: (5.5 SB) 3 J 2 (2 players)BB checks, Hero bets, BB callsTurn: (3.75 BB) 7 (2 players)BB checks, Hero bets, BB callsRiver: (5.75 BB) 9 (2 players)BB bets, Hero raises, BB 3-bets, ???Total pot: $39 (9.75 BB)Does he have nuts less than 50% of the time? Can I cap? It's a HORSE table, so the play might not be as good as general 2/4 LHE.
  4. This story wouldn't be nearly as funny if it weren't for this:http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/worl...icle4481742.ece
  5. Sorry, didn't get the hh. Returning to poker from some time off, so apologies if this is a retardedly easy question. $24+2 6-handed MTT.Third hand of the tourney, no big hands. We all have starting stacks of 2000Pre-flopI call 20 UTG+1 with 9s8sButton calls 20Big Blind raises to 90I call 70Button calls 70Flop: Qh 7h 6c (280 pot)BB bets 280Hero ?? Seems like this should be a fairly standard play. What is it?
  6. Finally got GH:A because I got tired of the songs I had. The songs are pretty easy, 5 starred all of expert on the first try except for Train, which I got on the third try. The bonus songs are a little harder and the Joe Perry guitar battle is insane. Other than that, nothing too too hard, just a lot of hopo that are fun and easy to read.
  7. I was half-expecting this thread to be about outing him as a Magic player.
  8. Actually, on RB, the gold stars you can get without Full Comboing the songs, there's just a higher point threshold. Some of the lower tier songs you actually do have to full combo (the Garbage one, Maps, Ok Go) and use star power at the right places, but the higher tier songs you gold star it without actually having to FC. On the PS2 and Wii, the gold star threshold is about 10% lower than on PS3, so it's easier still.
  9. Obama:Obama supports implementation of a market-based cap-and-trade system to reduce carbon emissions by the amount scientists say is necessary: 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. Obama's cap-and-trade system will require all pollution credits to be auctioned. A 100 percent auction ensures that all polluters pay for every ton of emissions they release, rather than giving these emission rights away to coal and oil companies. Some of the revenue generated by auctioning allowances will be used to support the development of clean energy, to invest in energy efficiency improvements, and to addre
  10. Ok, at this point, I'm pretty sure you have no idea what you're talking about. I mean, the companies and industries themselves generally endorse cap-and-trade over the alternaties.The point of Cap-and-trade is it's cheaper than the alternatives. Like, regardless if the underlying regulation is valid or not, cap-and-trade will generally be cheaper and a more efficient method of implementing that regulation. Railing against it just because you don't like environmental regulation is like saying you won't get EZ Pass because you don't like paying tolls.
  11. Not sure what the BIG NEWS is. The government already regulates pollution. Cap and trade just means the government sets the same restrictions on an industry-wide scale, but allows the market to figure out how best to implement it. I mean, on some level it's actually a decrease in regulation because they don't care what the hell you do on a plant-by-plant level so long as you have the credits for it.Like, if I have a 15-year old plant that's going to cost me a ton to meet certain emission standards, it might be way cheaper under cap-and-trade just to buy credits from a plant that can cut emi
  12. Unfortunately, there's basically no real legal discussion in that thread.I think it boils down to this: Stars prohibits both multi-accounting and sharing accounts, but they probably don't really care about account sharing in and of itself; they dq'd the win primarily because of multi-accounting. The problem is that it's probably insanely difficult to prove multi-accounting for legal purposes since you actually have to show who was on each account and/or that they were communcating. Whereas for account sharing you only have to show that it wasn't her. So there's the factual question about who
