  1. I'm confused by this hand history...did bearw8 initially limp or were you UTG and not BB?
    Ya this made no sense so I looked back on it. He raised utg and I shipped ATs spew style 21bbs from MP.Not defending my play here whatsoever. I will say I was on 8 tables and regretting entering this as I was playing both HEROS events and trying to keep track of discarded hands in stud games etc. I took a bad approach of, well...obv nothing technically sound. NNB informed me of this post even after calling my mother stupid on mothers day? Can u believe that?!!? :)sorry about the beat man :club: gl me in FTOPS HEROS
  2. I only read the first page or two and I cant believe the beating Steve is taking.. Steve was here before all of us, and is a friend of Daniels. I actually just took FCP off of my " home" page about a month ago for the first time since ive been reading FCP. The content isnt the same( and all I read is gen., occasionally ill drop in on Strat) but my posting numbers are down alot...Ive met alot of cool people here that I would trust with every dime I own, so im thankful for that. But I remember when there was tons of posts with actual content, now the content is staking posts ( which are awful long term for fcp, because it brings a nasty breed of people to the forums) retarded drunk threads, funny inside jokes that no one but a select few understand, and wells that provide really no knowledge.. Like the RDOG thread, Me and RDOG have butted heads a few times, but he has grinded for a living for a few years.. and there is ALOT that we can all learn from someone like that.. escpecially someone that is older and has been around the block a few more times.. its really sad, I used to enjoy coming here but now it seems like there is no new content ever to read, and its just the same stuff over and over.
    This+ what I wrote 3 pages ago sums it up.
  3. People expand and/or move on. This was the first poker forum I ever visited, and was the only one I read for a very long time. I don't post much (and it was several months before I actually did) but I find that I probably come here maybe twice a week as opposed to the several times a day in the past. It's not that I don't like it here, its just that I have discovered probably a dozen other poker related sites/forums I frequently visit. That all being said, this forum really got me going with poker outside the local games I was playing in 2004. First place I ever received outside thoughts on the game. Also met some really good people through here.

    QFT. (cept a lil off on the exact # but w/e) TYTYTY!
    Dunno who that is but CONGRATS!
    Yeah, Im pretty old around here but kinda suck at posting.
  5. People who at showdown are shown the winning hand but hold on to their cards for at least 30 secs...looking at the board, looking back at the hand they are now holding just above their chips (usually bending/curving significantly)...sighing and making facial expressions at least a couple times...all before finally mucking. This is usually after check/tank calling on every street.

  6. Try out some older Sigur Rós (pre-Takk...), Ratatat, and Explosions in the Sky. If you know music, you can tell that I prefer to play poker with lyric-less music (save Icelandic); I find lyrics distracting.
    Exactly this. (creepy wow as I would have posted the same if I didnt read the thread first)Go to Pandora.com and make an Explosion in the Sky channel and you will find even more.
