New Challenge: Movin' On Up


Recommended Posts

No, but I don't shoot pool.

 

I will be back in Denver Friday, for a few weeks. So we clearly should go to rack em billiards. Then after we play some poker with my friends. Then we see who sucks at 3betting

 

Sweet, stop on by if you can. It's on the corner of Havana and Jewel in Aurora. They do have one of those free poker tournaments where you can win cash/bar tabs. It's about the only NL I've played since I've moved here. Easy players, tons of variance. Blinds at 500/1000, guy called 8k pre with K7o.

 

I'm down for a home game possibly, if I can fit it into my budget. Not entirely sure with the xmas coming up and all that jazz.

 

What do you guys usually do?

I remember when this thread was all about how bad KJ was at 3betting

He's probably not flatting KJ's raise otf if he had a2. Besides, A2 is such a small portion of his range here, we are never ever ever ever ever ever ever folding the turn. People are stupid, they do

Yeah I'll hit you up next week sometime and we can play some pool.

 

And yeah, we just play some 25nl deeeeeeeep; it'll be fun. I'll let you know when we're gonna have a game.

 

Ooo 25nl deep sounds like fun. Do you guys have a set dealer or does everyone deal? I hate dealing, but I'll bite the bullet if need be.

And right here lies the entire problem with why you don't understand why it's laundering. It doesn't matter if you don't think it's dirty money. It doesn't matter if I think we should have the freedom to do whatever with money. It doesn't matter if it's flat out morally right or wrong. What matters, and all that matters, when figuring out if something is legal, are the laws and definitions currently in place.

 

Thinking anything else is a huge huge huge error in reasoning. What's right/wrong is not even close to equivalent to what's legal/illegal. It's a broken country, get used to it or join the pissed off masses contemplating revolution.

 

And yes, the moment you change that bitcoin you got back from the poker room into real dollars into your bank account, you have laundered money since *you* tricked the bank into processing funds from an original source it is not allowed to process from. So, while playing on FT and PS was fine for the players since we were not the ones responsible for tricking the banks, this operation makes *you* assume the liability. Now, it certainly decreases the odds of you getting caught. However, be aware that you are indeed breaking the law once you spend those bit coins on United States goods or currency, and weigh the risk/reward.

I guess we're in disagreement as to the legality. The UIGEA is the only thing that's on the books...and it's a pretty terribly (vaguely) written law. Paraphrasing here, but it states that banks can't handle illegal online gambling transactions...but then doesn't define what that means. Thus, the banks have generally taken a pretty conservative view. Online poker certainly isn't a violation of the wire act and there was that ruling not long ago that it's a skill game (and thus rather separate from other types of gambling).

Played one of those free poker tournaments last night. You win money to use at the bar if you come in top 3 I think. Bad players galore, but it's fun and nice to socialize.

 

I raise AQo, some chick on the button 3bets me. I fold face up, she shows AK.

 

Another hand I check BB with As7x.

Flop is Ah 10s 8s. SB checks, I bet. Everyone folds, SB calls.

Turn is 6s. SB CRAI. Only getting 2:1, so I fold and she shows flush.

 

Looking back, I have no idea why I bet the turn.

Agree about traffic. It's horrible here. It's been 3 months, and I've been on the highways once.

 

The worst part is the fact that most of the left turn lanes don't give you an arrow, so that lane gets backed up while people wait for oncoming traffic.

WSOPC goes through this weekend.

 

Then I think there is a HPT at the Golden Gates - they go there twice a year - so I don't know when the next one is.

 

Looks like the next HPT is in September, just in time for my bday.

 

I saw they have some $100-$200 tournaments in Blackhawk. You know anything about those? Structure? Payouts?

Something about if you build it they will come. I'll try to give weekly entries there myself a shot for those of you wondering what actually goes into building a casino. Watch out pstars!

Structures are going to be fast - for any daily donkament, somewhere between 20-40 minute long levels.

 

Blinds will double often. But the players are likely lol-bad.
