  1. Set it up how you prefer and play the game. Are you the type who overanalyzes everything?

  3. Sometimes, when I get pulled over, my knees give out, but only til I stand up.Never mind.
  4. Mainly SnGs, some MTTs.I've recently discovered I enjoy limit holdem and am improving at it. I also enjoy short handed SnGs.
  5. We should not overlook Big Ben's game saving tackle on the JB fumble.We should not overlook Dick LeBeau's masterful game plan, and the D's flawless execution of it.We should not overlook Troy Polamalu's interception being mysteriously reversed.We should not overlook Pittsburgh!!

    Thanks for the responses, guys, sorry for the delay in responding. A few comments, then the results. I took control of the hand on the flop because while I had many outs, I was still drawing and didn't want LP dictating how much my draw would cost me, and I was building the pot anticipating making my hand. I checked the turn because I made my hand and wanted the turn to look like it scared me, thereby disguising my flush. If the player behind me bet the turn, I was reraising. If he checked and we went to the river, it's harder to put me on a flush. By checking the turn, I did gamble no heart w

    Fanaticism is not caused by greed.Vatican City was caused by greed.
  9. every day starts at 12pm :shock: :shock: :shock:
  10. I've played Tx holdem before with 2 and 3 sets of flops and you could decide which one you wanted to use, increasing bets from flop to river, no checking allowed, all kinds of stupid ways to screw up a beautiful game, lol.
  11. Playing NL omaha is just plain silly. PLO would've limited your losses here.It is correct to fold the best hand sometimes in omaha. I actually do it quite a bit when I have no room for improvement and I'm facing a pot sized bet in a multiway pot, or even HU if the texture of the board is showing flushes AND straight draws. Sets in omaha look nice but they can be very dangerous. IMO trips are a better scenario because it gives me 4 more outs (on the turn) to make a fullhouse as opposed to a set.Tough hand, regardless.
  12. I'm bumpng this since it just got moved, which I'd anticipated, btw.Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  13. Hello all, hope everyone had a Merry Xmas!I'm considering playing more cash games this coming year, and was curious which site has the best rake schedule. Any help would be apreciated. Thank you.
  14. Steal the blinds, then when he comes back and starts crying, console him with soft, sincere words like, "Yeah, man, that really sucked for you.", or "I know how that feels, happens to me alot." , or better yet, "Ouch, dude! I almost feel bad for ya." Then sit back and watch how quickly he tilts his remaining chips away.
  15. First, I'm pleased to see this thread turned into an intelligent discussion, and not a flame throwing party.Second, my apologies to the community for my "wannabe pros" remark. I have my bad days as well, lol.Third, the main point foose was making was missed by most. If someone sits down at a table with $100, then triples that to $300 in a short amount of time, MOST newer players will loosen up and start playing hands they should never be playing, but play them because they're on a rush. I call it the "I can afford this call" mentality.Again, a lack of discipline is the main problem here an
  16. Hi Ghost. I've experienced what you're going through, and it definitely sucks.I remedy this by stepping down in limits/buy ins and actively work on my aggression. A big part of my game is taking pots when I feel I have the best hand, and when my game weakens up my results suffer, mainly because I allow people to chase their draws even with slightly bad odds.Unlike many players, I have a somewhat reverse mentality when it comes to poker. Many people like having their opponents chasing draws, whereas I don't. If I feel I have the best hand and the board's showing a flush or a straight draw,
  17. Without any reads it's real hard to say, but I can't help but think your pf "misclick" bit you in the azz.That's such a huge raise, I honestly can't say what I'd do without knowing how this guy has been playing. It's definitely not an automatic call, but folding here would be very difficult without a solid read on this guy's style. Did you have any info on this guy?
  18. First off, foose, having lurked for a while, the flames from close minded wannabe pros shouldn't surprise you in the least.Secondly, I for one think your OP was well written, thought out and good intentioned. IMO, it is a strategy that provides a temporary fix for a serious underlying issue, discipline. As you pointed out, this would be best suited for new players who lack the discipline to play the same way regardless of how their session is going. However, I wouldn't recommend to a new player to adopt this strategy as a permanent fix, but rather a method of training one's self to play dis
  19. As a mainly trny player, there are several strats for rebuys I use.1.Don't rebuy until you go broke. At that time, you can double rebuy. I generally fold everything but big pairs or AK then race it preflop, as in the rebuy period you'll see many people push their stacks in pf with weak holdings. Once the rebuy period is ending, in the last 5 minutes or so, I assess my stack size. If I'm near double the starting chips, I'll continue a TAG style until the add on period. Always add on. If I'm low, I'm pushing any playable hand pf and trying to double or go broke, so I can double rebuy befor
  20. What do you mean, because of course he doesnt have an average stack for the final table and you almost never do in rebuys??During the first break (after the first couple minutes when all or most of the add ons have been purchased) take the average stack multiplied by the # of players remaining. Divide that by 9 and you'll have the average stack at the final table. This is easy to do online, not so much live though.
  21. I'm with the majority here, HU its very tough to lay trips down, especially when your opponent shows no strength until the A hit the river. I think the hand was well played by both people and beating yourself up over this hand is futile. As TJ Cloutier would say, "That's poker."
  22. Went with A as well, but this is really a coin flip, IMO.
  23. I remember hearing that people in Maryland couldn't use neteller. Not sure if anymore states give you a hassle or not.
  24. lboarts- Sounds good. I was an instructor in Colorado before I came to Vegas so I'll be interested to see the right handed woods and left handed irons. I don't think I've seen that before.I'm a natural lefty but was taught to play by a friend who's right handed and convinced me to play righty because most golf courses are set up for rightys. Struggling to improve my handicap, I tried lefty for about 5 years before settling into the same handicap and not improving. Playing a mixed bag has cut a few strokes off my handicap, but I'd still consider myself a hacker, lol. I use a double edged
