  1. I don't cheer even when my team is winning. I'm not much of a cheering person.Criticism doesn't mean you're not a fan. It just means you think your team is being stupid.Which happens.
  2. Better than cheering while the other team is winning.
  3. I can't take you seriously any more. Sorry.
  4. Then why bother posting?And returning to see what people say back?Two pair. Ks over 8s
  5. Ummm... no? Deeper stacks and longer levels make the game more suitable for good players.The more you can alleviate the element of chance (coinflips) early in the tournament, the less likely that a lousy player will pick up a huge stack early on. If you play a structure where the blinds double every ten minutes, you're just going to have to accept that you're going to put your chips in when you don't want to. You talk about bad players waiting for good hands... I've never heard anyone accuse a bad player of playing too tight. Generally, it's the good players that are patient enough to pla
  6. I feel pretty good now. I won a whole 134 dollars by finishing first in one of Royal Vegas' $1000 freerolls.It was a good run, and there were some decent players in it there at the end.Good job to anyone else that monied. It was a blast. 3333 Entrants, 1st place, $134. For free.
  7. He must be. If Raymer was better he would have won the ME first.Right?>.><.<
  8. It's great to hear about games in Denver, but what about those of us in the southern half of the state. Face it, Cripple Creek... well... it sucks.Are there any good games on the north end of the Springs or Monument? Somewhere that I wouldn't have to drive two hours each way?
  9. Personally, I'd like the other players at the table to think I'm braindead.Then they call my all-ins.Either way, it's good for me.I think you mistake that a large number of people even realize this strategy exists, much less are actively watching for it.Even then, there's nothing they can do to make money off of you.So who cares if one person at your table figures out what you're doing.I'm not making money off of the good players anyway.I'm making bank from the HUNDREDS of horrible fish that play low level NL Hold 'em.Besides, it gives me something to do while I'm watching TV and it's a welcom
  10. The system is not counterable, nor is it exploitable.The best you can do if someone is using it is to avoid playing hands with them. Fact is, that doesn't bother them since they're not worried about you anyway.Besides, playing this strategy correctly, you'll notice that you only see a flop about one in six hands or so. Since probably a third of the time everyone folds when you go all in anyway, how are you possibly going to figure out someone is using this strategy anyway?About the best you can tell is that someone goes all-in when they have a huge advantage.It doesn't immediately identify
  11. Anyway, to wrap up. I just walked away with $1700 playing 1/2 NL. I played two tables and watched a couple of movies.I know that variance will eventually kick my ass at this game, right?Good thing this was just an experiment. Anyway, I'll stick with 10/20 LHE until I feel comfotable moving up. I can beat that game, and it's not so boring. 1500 bucks on a strategy like this though... you can't beat that. I laugh though, because according to Smash's logic, NL players are the biggest idiots in the world. (At low limits anyway)
  12. Well, I play NL in tourneys, but after watching these people play at a ring game it's completely different. People will call preflop raises with anything and then say later "I knew you had AA, but I just had to go for it with my 85o"It's almost funny.
  13. Pretty much people will call with TPTK, or two pairlesser pairs when I'm all in with KK or AA.Works out well.Not that I'm going to switch to NL on a regular basis, but it certainly can be profitable fun at least.
  14. Not to inflate Smash's ego too much, but his NL strategy is brilliant... at least it was tonight.Or it could be that 1/2 NL is the loosest game ever with the worst players.I've been playing 10/20 limit for about a year, and I do pretty well, so I decided to take 200 to the 1/2 NL tables online tonight... and turned it into 800 in about two hours using his method. Anyway, it works, for what it's worth.
  15. It doesn't actually say that. In general, the entire shuffle (all 52 cards) is completed prior to the hand being dealt. If not, there is a fundamental flaw in the shuffle matrix, which would be equivalent to a dealer shuffling the remaining cards in the deck after having dealt out the hole cards. The entire deck placement should be determined prior to dealing out the first card. What they mean by 'unable to determine the next card in the deck' is that there is no establishable pattern so that you could determine what the flop cards are going to be based on what the hole cards are.If I foun
  16. Actually the odds of getting a royal flush are four times better than hitting any exact hand.Just thought you'd like to know.
  17. Play to win, not just to cash.This never happens then.
  18. I wasn't seriously expecting anyone to tell me what I did wrong. (Dear Lord, I hope not)I was just venting. I've been fuming for three days over this hand. And worse, I haven't seen the guy back at the tables since. I can only hope he lost all of my money to someone else.It was definitely the worst beat I've ever taken. Who expects to lose a hand where you're 990:1 to win? I wouldn't feel so bad if he'd had J10h and caught the queen. (Ok, I would, but still...) But this guy runner runner'd a royal flush over quad aces. Geez.On the bright side, I made it back with interest yesterday pla
  19. Now, on the one hand, I can understand him calling me, since I'd made similar plays (bluffs) earlier in the evening with hands like 88 and 99.I can't (completely) fault the guy for that.For a moment, I was excited that he called.That didn't last long.
  20. I was on stars Friday night, and completely failed at correct online play.I was playing 2/4 NL at a full table and picked up AsAc in middle position with about 950 in front of me. One person limps in before me, and I raise to 30. Two people call; limper and small blindFlop comes miraculously AhAdKh. I bet out 50 dollars , SB folds and limper raises to 250. I push all in. He thinks for a minute, then calls (I'd been playing pretty loose, so I figure he thought I was bluffing at it)He flips over QhQdTurn is 10hRiver is Jh.I cried for an hour.Go ahead, flame away. Tell me what I did wrong.
  21. As near as I can tell, there are two chains of thought when playing in a rebuy tourney. The first is that you play loose and fast trying to get a boatload of chips at the beginning. In order to do that, you have to get your money in with mediocre/good hands. Another thought is to play tight, knowing that people will be throwing chips away at middle class hands. Then you can take advantage of that and scoop some big pots. I've had marginal success with both methods. The real trick though, is knowing that once you have the chips you need to play well, it's time to slow down. Usually that'
  22. Multi tabling is a must for me. But I only play two or three at a time. In all actuality though, the payoff for this style is far better in live NL games. Where a standard raise is 7x-8x the blinds, people seem to have a hard time letting go even if they think they might be beat after the flop.
