  1. Saw this at p5's.....interesting. http://www.pocketfives.com/1CE59FD2-8747-4...D0CF4AAEC0.aspx
  2. My folks are offering to go to Vegas with my wife and I. We are all wanting to stay at the Bellagio, but it may become too pricey. My father mentioned that he would cover $2000 of the travel and hotel expenses, and I'm trying to work with that... 4 of us flying from columbus, Ohio to Vegas. We plan on leaving march 9 and returning march 12, and are looking to maximize our time. Any suggestions/secrets to find a good deal/package and be close to some card rooms to hit a tourney and some cash games? I already know how to expedia.com it...just looking for some inside info if possible. We want to
  3. This is more or less the type of response/info I am looking for. I'm just trying to put things in perspective. Not sure if I should classify myself as a 'strong player', but I certainly am exiting 90% of my tournies as a short stack getting into a coin flip or a bad beat against a bigger stack when i've made a good read/pushed.
  4. This is the latest example- and this guy surely didn't need to gamble (he was 4th or so w/ around 400 left: PokerStars Game #3918981341: Tournament #19224938, Hold'em No Limit - Level X(400/800) - 2006/02/09 - 21:38:58 (ET)Table '19224938 288' Seat #4 is the buttonSeat 1: CopoutKing (28222 in chips) Seat 2: EJ420 (13120 in chips) Seat 3: Rageur (6255 in chips) Seat 4: thedabbler (43519 in chips) Seat 5: PeteIII (15770 in chips) Seat 6: drcomet (44433 in chips) Seat 7: NightSpice (5970 in chips) Seat 8: CHAPINPIT (7090 in chips) Seat 9: It's Not Me (8450 in chips) CopoutKing: posts the ante 50E
  5. Just wondering - What percentage (roughly) of eliminations from tourneys do you suffer from bad beats? I can't tell if I'm on a bad run, or if it's just me, or whatever.... The last ten tournies I've played 8/10 were over when I was handed a beat. Typically on the river. That's poker, sure-but should I be glad it's not donk plays that lead to my doom, or should I examine my play for leakage....? Thanks-
  6. Personally, I don't think the buy-in should be considered. Not the point.Anyway- if it were me, I'd probably let em know it was against the rules/unethical and see how they reacted to gauge my course of action.
  7. Yeah, I 'm at least not that far behind. :wink: That's why I was mentioning the 'I know I shoulda, but was scared stuff'.. No, I 'm with ya. And thanks, I've been helped by these critiques. Thanks everyone.
  8. Ouch. I know I let the previous (identical) scenario affect me. I was afraid of the AQ again, and shouldn't have been, though it is what he held after all. :cry:
  9. did the river get capped? No sir. I bet/called.
  10. Villain flipped up AQ. I ended my session.

  12. That's what I thought, as mentioned.
  13. Thanks for all the help, guys. Villain had JJ to fill up. His preflop call without a raise kept me in without slowing, the bastard.
