  1. Maybe I missed it, but was there a denial of the bet in there? I wonder if Vaswani will be shpping back all the money he's made off of donks in his lifetime. Anyone have that list?
  2. You called your stack with AK on the first hand? You suck.
  3. I liked when Phil Hellumth came on and disagreed with pretty much everything Phil Gordon said when analyzing the hands.
  4. Phil Gordon is a disingenuous liar. I'm tired of hearing this crap, "how woud you feel. . .". The truth of the matter is, this lawsuit is not being funded by the players, it's being funded by video game companies and online poker sites. Just because they do an end around by paying the players "fees" so they can use their "own" money to file the suit, doesn't mean the players are actually funding the suit. Just look at the players involved and their affiliations.The public propaganda the ungrateful 7 are throwing out there is shameful. Go ahead and file your lawsuit, but don't make it sound lik
  5. You have no stake in a pot once you fold, so I don't see how it was unfair to Filippi. And players can pretty much do anything they agree to in a cash game.
  6. Chop ChopWith no raises, Michael Binger and Dan Nassif see a flop of 754. Both players check. The turn brings the 7. Binger fires out $200,000 and Nassif just calls. The river brings the 7 and Binger checks to Nassif who bets out $500,000. Binger calls and shows Q-7 for 7-7-7-5-5. Nassif, however, also shows a seven with K-7 in his hand. The players chop the pot.
  7. You know Daniel was sweating the boat at that point. Nothing worse than min-raise donking into you gutshot only to be drawing dead.
  8. You think you can go through 8000+ players w/o getting into coinflips? Good luck.
  9. You'd think "poker genius" Howard Lederer would know better than to bet $200 million into a $2 million pot.The players will lose the antitrust portion of the lawsuit for sure. Howard Lederer held his Full Tilt Invitational through Station Casinos, so obviously there are other venues in Vegas where you can hold a televised tournament successfully.The only way the players win is if they can convince he court that poker tours should not be allowed to exist. Suppose the players were to win this argument. Then what? Will we see a flurry of independent poker tournaments pop up that strike their inde
  10. Why wouldn't the final table be all NL?NL is by far the most skillful game, when blinds are reasonable. The mixed game format and 50k buy in was good for sifting out all the crappy Kanters of the poker world, but the final table should be as Doyle calls it, "The Cadillac of Poker". (of course Cadillacs aren't even the Caddilacs of cars anymore, but it was relevant in '78). This is the true championship of poker, not the Main Event Donkfest.

  12. Great assumption. I bet you can dodge bullets, baby! Did they pay the TC players in Monopoly money?
  13. Anyone who thinks a whiney guy with a losing hand should win a pot on a technicality is a bad player. Take that to the bank.
  14. Again, I disagree, without more information from the hand. The pot was most certainly raised preflop, lets assume "donk" raised preflop, and Barry called. On the flop the "donk" almost certainly bet out, and Barry, knowing he had nothing, called with his set of 10's being the best hand. Barry was trapping him obviously. Turn came, "donk" bet out huge, and Barry reraises allin (for very little more), and the "donk" HAS to call. He got lucky with the J, Barry was unlucky after having made a good read and getting all his chips in with the best hand, but that's poker. Have an aggressive bluff g
  15. $500 into a $2 pot. Dismissing the possibility of a higher being is a push at best.
  16. when you have a full house heads up with a full draw on the baord, you are a donkey.
  17. a pro has ever folded the nuts? If this is such a debatble topic, it must have happened quite a bit.
  18. I've ever seen on the internet on any subject. You don't fold the nuts unless you are a complete idiot.Checking was absolutely the right move too. You can't make a bet big enough to scare away either of the hands that you are supposedly now so afraid of (like anyone is going to put a player on AdJd or 77 in an unraised pot 4 handed). If you go all in on that flop, the guy with AJ thinks he's at worst 40%, and the odds are close to that and odds are he's not as big a pussy as you are and he is actually trying to win.The guy with 777 definitely isn't folding under any circumstance because he f
  19. Phil Ivey is universally regarded as the best poker player in the world. In fact, Lisandro called him that during the show. Though many of you want to believe that you can play perfect poker, and thus justify your desire to become professional gamblers, there is no such thing.Lisandro got all his money in raised pots with 2nd pair, twice. If Ivey had a king or a queen on either of the respective hands, which he easily could have (don't tell me he had a read on Ivey, because you simply can't get that read), then everybody is calling Lisandro a donkey and Ivey a genius. It's not like Lisandro wa
  20. I had a buddy come into town and he wanted to play at the Bellagio. He's sits down at the 2/5 game and gets his $200 in chips. First hand, UTG guy raises it and has 5 callers behind him. My friend on the button re-raises to $50, UTG guy calls, and the others fold. Flop comes Qd10d7d. The raiser checks, and my buddy raises all in, he's quickly called. So now there is about $500 in the pot.They flip up:raiser - AdJd for the nut flush and a royal flush draw.my guy - Kc7c for 2 7s with a K kicker.So my guy is about a 49-1 dog.The turn comes a 7h and the river is a Kh. Full house. The other guy i
  21. Where is that written? And what does that have to do with anything?Okay, to be less Smash-like I will actually explain my point: MOST players only bluff around 10-15% of the time that they play hands. So that means that if you are completely insensate, and have no read whatsoever, that there is a 10-15% chacne of a bluff.But this does not apply to all players.And this ignores your ability to read players.But if you just sit there and say to yourself "There is only a 15% chance he's bluffing" and talk yourself out of calling down bluffs, well, you're not very good. At some point, you have to be
