  1. He knew he was dominated....if you read the pokerpages account JDags admits as much.Yes, he knew he was dominated, but there are times when you must call even though you know your the underdog, and this is one of those times. If you look at the worst case scenario vs the best case scenario, how can you not call here?Worst case scenario: he loses the hand and is still in 2nd in chips.Best case scenario: he wins the hand, knocks 2 people out, and goes to a 5 handed final (TV) table with a dominating large stack.I'd be interested to hear some top pros' views on this. Hopefully DN will give us
  2. Still calling is not bad. It is a play based on his large chip stack at the time. But if he had folded would you really call it a bad play? Come on.Okay, I can take the diplomatic road and say no, a fold wouldn't be bad.Ummm.... never mind, I can't do it. A fold there would be terrible, IMHO.
  3. Or lose more money in less time. Someone on here said they wouldn't recommend playing SnGs for a living, yet I derive 1/2 my income from SnGs (the other 1/2 from MTTs). The structure at PP is so ridiculous playing there is not wise. Sure, good players can win at them, but those same players could make much more playing SnGs with better structures. Take zeejustin, for example. Excellent player, but he's still young, and he still has some work to do on his business decisions. Playing $200 SnGs for 2 weeks netted him a nice profit, but he could have earned much more at a different site, IMO

  5. What? He was a 9:1 dog! How should i rethink my pot odds if i choose to fold when getting 2.8:1, and i am a 9:1 underdog? What the fuck am i missing?Absolutely, you fold this hand - 2:1 is only valuable if you win your hand that much of the time - not if you're a 9:1 dog - easy fold. And he figured he was a dog pretty badly - so it certainly not right to call in this spot at all.You're trying to apply a cash game mentality to a tournament situation. The fact that he's an underdog here has very little to do with the decision as to fold or call. The pot odds are good, the stack odds are good

  7. Well said, easy call here. His stack size dictates this call as much as his pot odds do, and the fact that your 2 opponents are all in means he won't have to put any more into the pot. And the scenario should he win this hand is icing on the cake. A laydown here would be absurd, IMHO.Another point is after the hand he still had 2.2 million in chips and was 2nd chip leader.Ya, that's kinda what I meant by his stack size dictating an easy call. If he was an average stack, folding here might be considered, even with those pot odds.I've noticed alot of people considering pot odds in certain to

  9. Gin and Juice is the name of the song and it's by Snoop Dogg"If the ride is more fly, you must buy."Thanks for clarifying.
  10. LOL, I have an aunt who gets upset when I don't return those chain emails you're supposed to send back to the sender. She thinks I don't love her now.
  11. My hometown is full of talent!! Nice work, Dilligaf. :clap: BTW, who is Gin and Juice? Rappers? Never mind, I'm too old to care. :shhh:
  12. How someone handles a bad beat sais alot. If he sais, "Nice hand." or "That's poker." , avoid playing any more hands with him, without the nuts. If he becomes visibly upset, play that fish every chance you get.
  13. Did Annie leave her kids?Does Annie have a girlfreind?If so, how do you know these things?Pleas provide proof when posting outlandish statements, thank you.P.S. I've never once posted my opinion of her on here, but I am a fan and those who denegrate her I take at face value, that you have some growing up to do, regardless of your age.Do I sound self righteous? If so, grow up.
  14. I understand it, to a point. It's good for people who are just learningmaybe, or somebody who's too young to play seriously yet.I know I was a video game maniac when I was a kid. If there'd beena Poker game then, I'd be a grand master by now.However, that being said, anybody in this day and age who'seven a minimum winning player on the internet would beIMO wasting their time playing these games. First you haveto pay for the game, when you can go to any of a million sitesand play for free 24 hours a day. Second, any time that you spend sitting in front of your XBOX instead of your computerwo
  15. :shock: I try not to post when I'm drunk anymore.
  16. Thank you. I felt a little bad kenny wasn't getting any substantive responses, which is a shame. Here's a topic about what most of us dream of achieving, and no one wants to discuss it. Hmmm.
  17. lol, I guess I'm the only person that ever sits at the table and has these OFF THE WALL thoughts in my head.You make money by playing your best poker and trying to outplay your opponents. This is true. But mentally what is going through your head? I WANNA WIN DEM COINZ? I WANNA DO MY BERRY BEST! I WANNA DESTROY ALL DEEZ GUYZ.I WANNA DO MY BERRY BEST TO WIN DEM COINZ BY DESTOYING ALL DEEZ GUYZ.That's my thought process.
  18. What if he learns so much stuff that he runs out of room for anything else?
  19. Bank roll management and skills are the two biggest factors. Work on both and you too can be great.Anyone notice a trend with the new "great" online players? Seems to me they're all young men who are still being supported by their parents, or atleast they were when they got their start. They could afford to grow their bankroll without withdrawing from it. This is extremely important when starting out. The bigger you can grow your bankroll, the better the stakes you can play, which in turn the more money you can potentially make. There's nothing wrong about withdrawing from your br as lon
  20. 5. The general forum sucks and flames too much6. Did you see what Daniel said about Annie duke? (9000 years ago)7. Hey, I'm at a final table... it's a freeroll, but still...8. What site should I play at?9. What site has the best SnG's?10. How do I play shorthanded limit?there's a few more.Someone make a new thread, a list of all these threads weve covered wayyyyyyyyyyy too much, then stickie the thread and make it a must read. Oh, and put that thread on this list.
  21. 1. How many games do they mix in the big game?2. In order to master every game online, how long would it take the best online players to master each one?3. Now how long would it take them altoghether to have them all mastered?4. Are all of the games being mixed in the big game offered online?5. Could someone out there be playing every one of these? (If so, at what frequency do they change the game, I wonder.)6. If someone were to master every game by playing them online, could they convert to live at a large increase in stakes (mentally, physically's just a monetary issue)?7. Are mixe
