  2. this is why i think it probably was scotty. this was the best he could do, and is consistent with a drunk trying to rationalize what they've done while drunk. at no point does he say anything about how trashed he got, that that in and of itself was inappropriate, and that it was a major cause of the rest of his behavior. he'll also never admit that he probably wasn't the best player at the final table sober, and there was no way he was the best player there while hammered.this is just more embarrassment for the guy.
  3. i haven't posted in here forever, and despite how embarrassing scotty was, PB is an equally big tool.
  4. are there any FCP yahoo leagues still open?
  5. i know a lot of the pokerwire peeps myself, including stapleton. i don't have any insider info about what will happen to the show, but i too really hope it stays alive. as for this new trend in selling exclusive coverage rights, DN is right, it's bad for everybody except the WSOP/WPT and CP/Bluff. i personally thought pokerwire's staff was the best of them all, and hope everyone who works/worked there finds something else poker-related if that's what they want. overall, it seems like the "wild west" days of the poker boom are ending and it's becoming corporatized. it will be interesting to see
  6. it seems like you were ahead hands like JJ and TT the whole way, as played.without knowing that in retrospect, i feel like you did a very good--although accidental--job of representing KQ or AK here, which CO couldn't beat. it's such a standard rookie move to check flopped trips like that after a big preflop raise that you probably inadvertently sold it.how to play better? next time sell it on purpose! j/k.
  7. such weird overthinking. this is a hand wherein you have many likely holdings beat. if you don't, accept you're going to lose some money and move on.it feels like you want people to tell you it was OK to lose money to AJ.it was OK to lose money to AJ here.
  8. you can beat everything except a set of deuces, which it smells like.or KJ, or a draw, which you have beat.simple: judgment call.
  9. i agree. this isn't holdem. don't be so fancy.
  10. are you joking?first, i like your PF raise.you have top set and the best villain is doing on the flop is open ended. his underset is no good, nor is his two pair. you have most hands crushed. therefore, why not walk the dog here? if he has the hands i described, he won't get away, and if he's open ended, he has 8 outs and still leaves you with a redraw. a smooth call will probably get all of his money in on the turn. barring a scare card, you're calling and looking great.you're playing micro PLO. why overthink a profitable situation?
  11. there are good, disciplined players at every level. i find players at micro limits usually fall into two categories: bad players just starting out, and those who are pretty decent but lack a bankroll to play higher. you rarely find the whales with thousands of dollars to dust off playing losing online poker at $.10-$.25 tables...
  12. if i don't have somewhere to be, am not tired, and am not steaming--basically, if i think i can still play my A game--i never leave a table with players i think i can beat. but you have to be honest with yourself about those two things: can i play my A game and beat this table? if you can't, for whatever reason, you should walk.so, my point remains the same. the cards will run good and run bad, the same as for everyone. you will take beats sometimes. you will have to sit there and fold for 3 hours sometimes. if you can't do that because you lack patience or you're steaming from a beat you took
  13. this is the worst thread ever.the OP needs my avatar.
  14. there are a few things to consider that i feel like the OP is missing or ignoring. he described 3 hours of live play in a NL game wherein he saw at least 15 players and maybe 70 hands. this seems pretty standard in a game with no shuffler to me. my thoughts:1. among all the players you saw, i strongly doubt you were the best one there the whole time;2. i say this because of how you describe the play--young players basically giving their money away;3. yet somehow, you got very little of it and indeed lost over that time period;4. which frustrated you because you felt like it was "not your night
