  1. i currently have 18,000 playing 2.50 5.. so that's just under 40 buy ins.im only gonna move up when i have 30 buy ins for 5 10.. ie 30k.at lower stakes, you seem to be crushing so id play with 15.. and in the scheme of things, if youlose you will be able to get 50 bucks back from some other source.also, one thing ive found useful, is as im multitabling, ill play 4 table sof 1 - 2, and 2 2.50 - 5s.so its more gradual.keep up the good work, Watch.

  2. everything he said to a "T", the biggest point being dont raise with that hand out of position.
    i was popping it up most hands.i folded, and i think foldings the correct play as hes gonna probably shut down if it pairs.
  3. youre playing 2.50 5 pL omaha.. $900 stack.you raise with JJx7, and get 4 callers. pot is $90.a decent player (with $500 stack) bets the pot from the small blind on a flop of 7h9hJc.you have 3 players to act behind you. (that could potentially raise.)assuming he has it.. is it correct to call or fold?

  4. just watched the taylor caby trial video. he appears to be psychic.does anyone know why when i try and sign up the page comes up as error script???and how much should i be paying? the %6.99, the $19.99, or the $49.99?any help much appreciated!

  5. well thats a whole bowl of wrong.if a tight player is sticking with you till the river he's gonna have a good hand. we are not int he world series, you are not stu ungar.if a tight player calls you can take a second shot on the turn, but if the board has no flush draw and hes just calling you on the turn, then he's gonna have a solid hand. however if there is a flush dra wthat misses on the river you must always bet. if hes tight/weakthen hes not going to make a play at you, so you dont have to bet much, just get him to throw away a weak pair that was with a flush draw.until the antis have kicked its hard to get chips off a weak tight player. AS SOON AS THE BLINDS ARE 100 200, START RAISING FROM MID TO LATE WHENEVER IT GETS TO YOU. AND WHEN CALLED BET HALF THE POT IF/WHEN THEY CHECK TO YOU ON THE FLOP. IF YOU HIT YOUR HAND DO THE SAME. AND REPEAT TILL FINAL TABLE.thats what you do.

  6. yesterdy i wa sin my local card club £5 £5 PL HE game.i made it 15 utg with JJ. got 6 callers. flop KcJc4ci move in for £105, guy to left calls. my friend moves all in over the top for £500, the guy on my right calls this bet, and the other guy who calls the first bet of 105 calls the overraise!guy to my left has 444, my friend has Qc9c, and guy on my right has Acx.turns a Qd, rivers a K! so i fill uo and win the £500 side.mad hand.

  7. i've never thought of that so clearly. i find myself doing that, where i call someone down because i want to prove that he was a bigtimedonkey and i knew where he was at. now that i will think of it like this maybe ill be able to indentify it when its happening and cut it out. good post

  8. earl is the best comedy.during the matches he sits with his fingers in his ears because he thinks the crowd hate him and want to jeer at him.when he won the masconi cup once, he jumped up on the table and shouted "IM THE KING OF THE WORLD!"maybe my favourite is when europe (im english) beats america, with steve davis potting the final ball because earl missed a cut shot. confetti flies up everywhere and the europeans are celebrating and going crazy, everyones cheering and in the middle of all the party poppers and comotion earl is in the middle with a glare on his face, setting up the shot that he had just missed and taking it again. hellmuth cannot beat this. but he can dodge bullets baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. This reminds me of a line in Anthony Holden's book "Big Deal"--a great read in which he takes a year to be a professional poker player back around 1989 or '90. Anyway, there was bit in reference to some pro (maybe Johnny Chan) and about what he had listed as his occupation on some official document and it simply said "importer/exporter." Holden's comment was "of what...other people's money?"
    ye, thats such a good book. think it was jesse alto.and she's not gonna make any money off it. i just asked for advice. and if she is, who actually cares. plus, im not going to buy a godamn house in barbados.so all you fulltimers go ahead and tell everyone you play cards for rent?
  10. i always find i get a negative response from women about poker. i assume the thought process goes poker player > gambler > alarm bellswhat are some of the occupational lies, if any, that you've told instead of telling people you are a professional poker player? and who'd you tell 'em to?i told this girl i worked on the stock exchange on friday, and she told me she was in property. she told me to buy a house in barbados so i got the digits, and will ring and lie some more, and maybe end up buying a house in barbados cos apparently they only cost one stack of high society.
