  1. Absolutely agree. The argument can be made that perhaps in a moral sense what Ivey did was wrong, but how can it be illegal? If he played no part in the cards being flawed, it is on the casino 100% imo. The dealers are supposed to check the cards when they're brought into the game. Plus, at a game of those stakes, the pit boss should also be looking over the dealer's shoulder and security should be monitoring it all. I will go a step further and say that any casino that was using that series of cards after Phil's run in with the London casino is run by idiots. I guarantee that if Ivey had lost $10,000,000 the Borgata would not be offering him a refund. I know it's a hard loss to stomach, but they should eat it and go after Gemaco to recoup the money.
  2. That and I made it a point to pick players who I thought were more likely to play a full schedule i.e. I took Faraz Jaka over Hassan Habib because I think that he will play a lot more although I think that Habib is a more consistent player.
  3. Are you still considering selling shares of your One Drop entry here on FCP?
  4. Can you speak to the validity or bullshit nature of this accusation?http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/29/news-...66/index92.html
  5. I agree with you completely. I know a couple of guys who have dealt the WSOP and the WSOP Circuit and they said that the tips really don't make up a great deal of their pay. That being said, the juice being paid as well as the standard 3% being deducted from prize pools does not lend itself to the players tipping when the tournament is over. For example, I played a tournament at the Goldstrike in Tunica last weekend where the buy in was $300 +$40 with a $10 dealer toke. So if you count the toke as part of the entry since it is not going to the prize pool you are paying 16% juice before the 3% is taken out of the prize pool. This is on top of the fact that at the larger field tourney now they are flattening out the pay scale in hope of making the nits feel better about min cashing.
  6. You're right it was 2500. Although I sucked it up in the tourney, I did very well in the cash games at the Horseshoe. The $1-$3 NL seems to be a lot easier to beat there than at Sams Town. I'm guessing it's because the abundance of old tight players that stay on the Sams Town side of Tunica versus the younger players that tend towards the Goldstrike and Horseshoe.
  7. Quick trip report for anyone who might care:blinds start at 25-50 Hand 1- I'm UTG raise to 150 with AQ suited get repopped to 1000, I fold.Hand 2- I'm big blind same guy makes it 1000, I fold.Hand 3- My small blind same guy makes it 1000 again, I fold.Hand 4- My button guy once again raises to 1000, I see pocket kings reraise to 25000, he shoves, I call, he has aces, I vomit in mouth and leave after not catching.Cliff Notes:I got tilted and suck at poker
  8. Sam's Town is having a 25K guarantee this Saturday at 11AM. It's $160 + $30 with atleast 10K for first. The way that poker has been around here lately, I don't think that they'll get the 157 that they need to break even, so there should be a decent overlay. I missed the WPO last month, so I'm really looking forawrd to this one.
  9. I'm making the trip over to Tunica (from Alabama) next week to play a couple of the $230s, a $340, and maybe a few sattys. Anyone else going to be there? Also, has anyone here in Biloxi for the WPT and if so how are you doing in the prelims?
  10. I agree sir. Cocaine is helluva drug
  11. I'm playing a couple of tourneys at the Horseshoe in Tunica for the Magnolia Classic next week and I am wondering what you think a proper tip from the winner should be. The tourneys that I'll be playing are $125+25 with a $10 dealer toke. The Horseshoe also reserves 3% of the prize pool for the staff if I remember correctly.So, for the sake of easy math, let's say that 100 people play. That would make a net prize pool of $12,125. This means that the casino is taking in $2500 off of the registration fee plus another $375 not to mention the theoretical $1000 for the dealer toke. With that relatively high amount already covered, I do not know what a proper tip would be if the cards fell my way and I won. I'm fairly sure that the winner gets 35% if there are more than 40 players thus making the win amount $4,243.50 . I've heard that pros go anywhere from 3% ($127.30) to 7% ($297.05)depending on the circumstance. Any thoughts?
  12. Dude, it's like the first time that you get crabs from a hooker. You can get rid of the crabs, but the memory remains long after the fact.
  13. That's exactly what I meant. The general public does not need to see him act the way that he did at the Main Event and think that it's acceptable. I guess it might be good that people will try to emulate the horrible style that Gold applied in High Stakes Poker and donate money, but other than that I think that he is an overall detriment to the poker community.
  14. While I am disappointed that Daniel did not win the WSOPE Main Event, I am more than overjoyed that he took the lifetime tourney winnings lead from that assbag Jamie Gold. TY DN
