  1. Your best bet would be to analyze your own game and figure out what you are doing wrong.Don't get me wrong, you will always lose to people playing like that, but you want them to do that. In the long run, you will make money from those guys as long as you force them to play those bad hands against the odds.Read some poker strategy. Understand what your bets mean and how they affect guys playing hands like those.
  2. Is Havad Khan still like he was on the WSOP a couple years ago? If that is the case, then I would have been a little more careful against him because he is probably the #1 guy I wouldn't want to beat me in a hand.
  3. This is standard, I'd laugh too. Hopefully, if the stakes were higher, your bankroll would be higher and this would still only sting you. If you're playing a game where a loss like this would hurt you, you need to step down.Obviously, you're playing for fun like most of the rest of us. Play within your bankroll and enjoy these when they happen.
  4. Suits are also used in poke to break ties in chip races when coloring up.
  5. In poker, suits don't matter.I have to commend the variety of amazing (sarcastic) replies in this thread alone though. I'm pretty sure the OP is much more clear on things now. I especially love the limit hold'em vs no-limit hold'em discussion surrounding the possibility of conflicting flushes... classic.
  6. Wow, you got a picture of Sammy at the table. You must have got there pretty early in the tournament Nice pics.
  7. I agree, Party Poker is amazingly soft. Since October/November though, they haven't allowed US players on their site. Too bad for them.It's mostly all Europeans on the site now, so the best time to play is between 4-8 CST.I couldn't recommend Party Poker (and Empire Poker) to anyone (outside of the US) enough.The top US sites are PokerStars and Full Tilt though, that's why most people on here recommend those sites.
  8. I'm really torn here because the decision could really go either way.What type of game was this? If it was a home game and we're dealing with potential newbies to poker then I'd allow A to take the pot for sure.If this was a private card room full of regulars I'd consider A's hand to be mucked.The rules are not clear on the definitive RIGHT way to handle this situation and I've seen it go both ways. Either way, you won't please everyone with the decision.The easiest thing to do is to award the pot to B and warn everyone that this is why you shouldn't be a nit at showdown by mucking your card
  9. Did he say it like "owned" or like "powned" or like "pawned"?Cause if it was either of the latter two options that is not cool, those "words" should never be spoken.
  10. I have a racetrack style oval table.Benefits I think it looks nicer. Can accomodate 10 players. Downfalls If your chips are on the track, you need to pick them up to go all-in, you can't just shove your stack forward. If your cards get on the tracks, they might be hard to get off. Hard to deal from the ends, but the guys in the middle just help the dealer. So we really have to issues here: oval/circle and race-track versus non-racetrack.I like the oval because it's more comfortable for 10 players, which we often have.I can't say that the racetrack adds to the game itself, but it certainly lo
  11. What does Daniel's take matter? We all know how he likes to play for 2nd cause the money matters. Therefore, he'll back up the fold because it was +EV for 2nd place.
  12. No, I think those products are legit. Go for it and post a trip report...
  13. If there are more players remaining on 7th street than there are cards remaining in the stock, the next card is placed in the centre of the table and is treated as a community card (like in hold'em).
  14. Where are the nay-sayers this year? The guy has already monied in 2 WSoP events (still alive in event #8 at final table) and won huge amounts of money this year in general.Way to go DN, keep up the good work.
  15. What's the exchange rate on the Brazillion dollar ?
  16. Instead of saving the torrent file itself, open it and it will prompt your torrent client to start downloading the file you want to get.
  17. If it wasn't the new WPT hostess, how does this relate to the current thread?Had this thread been entitled "Brag Thread" then all brags are legit. In this thread we are only supposed to be talking about OP's brag - Getting a Shout Out on the Circuit.Granted, your brag is more impressive, but is it worth the hijack?
  18. On it's own it's damn funny. I laughed when I saw it.As a response to a serious(?) question it isn't all that enlightning.I thought this thread would be a joke when I opened it, but it seems that the OP is taking the debate of Bingo vs Poker seriously in this case.
  19. I have seen a lot of comments about the layout of 2+2. What is so bad about that layout? Are people not using the flat thread option and having to click on each reply?By default, the option for some reason is to display a thread tree, where you need to click for each reply. If you turn on the flat thread option, I don't see the different between it and any other site.
  20. The burgers were awesome and I remember always getting brownies from their baking counter. They were the best I remember too.
  21. Well, you could still make it a profitable hobby. Just don't go playing 50/100NL with the best in the game. I'm sure you can find something better for you in the levels between .01/.02 and 50/100.
  22. I hadn't ever seen "Posting and You..." Thanks for putting it up, it made me chuckle.
  23. What is TP/MM. I've seen it quite a lot but I haven't seen a definition.And to OP, congratz on the win!
  24. Here's a link to another poker forum. They have lots of information for beginners and they have their own forums for every kind of poker you can think of.I used this strategy site when I first started and I still go there quite often. The layout is better than 2+2 and most of the posters are pretty helpful too.http://www.flopturnriver.com/start_pot_odds.html
  25. I'm sorry, but it isn't even close: Theory of Poker by David Sklansky is the bible of poker.Now, I'm sorry, but even for a total newbie to poker, that was such a lazy question. Unless this is the only poker forum you've ever seen there is no way that you should be asking this question. Every poker forum that talks about tools/books will already have 23894723947012374623814794 threads praising Theory of Poker, even the 2+2 boards (it's the publising company for Theory of Poker).Don't be lazy anymore, no one appreciates it. Unless you are going to sit across from us at the tables
