  1. Way, way under-rolled for the 109r. Add another 0 to your roll and you may be there. If you really want to take a shot or two play one of the Sunday majors. Much softer field. GL
  2. I would start with HoH I and II. It has been a while since I read HoH so you may be able to skip II but I know Vol. I is a must read. It is a bit dated now but provides a good foundation and really teaches how to approach thinking about a poker hand. I would then move on to the Winning Poker One Hand at a Time Series and then Kill Everyone. I would avoid the McEvoy/Cloutier suggestion - it has to be a level. Good Luck
  3. I have been using the MiFi almost daily since it came out and have rarely had any problems. In my area it will support multitabling (6-8 tables) on my laptop while also running an Ipad and iPhone. I got it early enough that I have unlimited data but I consider it one of my better purchases.
  4. I agree with Hoosier. I applaud all the efforts but would really like more $50+ tournaments, especially starting at 9:30 pm or later. I actually find myself playing more on the other sites now than before and have always preferred UB. How about bringing back the 11pm $109 and throwing on a $15-20K guarantee. There was a time when this was my favorite tournament on the net.
  5. I still play UB MTTs whenever I play. I also play Tilt and Stars but I prefer UBs MTT structure.
  6. Thanks for checking - not sure why I didn't think to check Poker DB.
  7. I think I may have just won a Triple Crown but I'm not sure if one of the tournaments qualifes. On 3/20 I won the 10 PM (or 10:02 PM) $75 buy in daily double on Full Tilt and also won the 10:15 pm eastern $55 buy in on Stars. Sunday night I won the 10 PM $33R on UB. I know the the FT and UB tournies were big enough to qualify but I'm not sure about Stars. Based on the pay out I am thinking it may have been short of the $10K minimum. Any suggestions on how I figure this out? Sorry for the brag post but I'd like to figure this out. Sh@rk runs good.
  8. I was wondering the same thing. My guess is that they convert to tourney $ (T$) but that is just a guess. If anybody has solid info would love to know.
  9. It looks like I got refunds for the $9K $109 and the $19K 33 rebuy but no explanation. My total buy-ins for these 2 were $262 and I think they credited me $407. There were only 9 left in the 109 and I had the chip lead. We were also pretty deep in the rebuy. Unacceptable IMO...

    wtf UB?

    Looks like the 6500 tourney is running again. Try to get back in if you aren't already. Never mind. It is the 12 am not the 10:30.

    wtf UB?

    They shut down the 109 too w/ 9 players left and a huge overlay.

    I played w/ him in the WSOP $5K 6 max and he was very friendly and chatty until he started to lose. Dutch Boyd cripled him and I knocked him out and he was a very sore loser. Just as an example he berated me on the knock out hand for not folding my AJ to his reraise shove whin I was getting about 3 to 1. My assessment is that he is a nice enough guy but a poor loser.
  13. Especially HU SNGs! Who said anything about profits??
  14. It has been a long time since I read it but I recall Tournament Poker for Advanced Players being a worthwhile read. It was one of the first books I read but it did have some good concepts. The Harrington series had a huge impact on tournament poker and where HOH and Sklansky are inconsistent I would be more inclined to follow HOH. The McEvoy books are among the worst. His books advocate a very weak tight approach.
  15. Thanks all. I checked availability on line for the Radisson so maybe they do just have the rooms blocked for the tournament.
  16. I am playing in the UB Aruba Poker Classic for the first time this year and need a recommendation on where to stay. The Radisson appears to be booked. I tentatively have a room at the Westin but would love to hear from those of you that have been down there. Is the Radisson walkable from the Westin etc? I will be travelling with Mrs. SharkBait so need a decent place with nice pool etc. I did notice that the Westin has a special rate for people playing in the tournament (approx 25% off the standard rate using POKERAUA code). This makes the room approx $190 for garden view, $230 for partial o
  17. Roller coaster day in the 6 Max yesterday but still alive and in the $$ w/ 72K chips. Got down to 2800 at level 2 but was able to grind back into it mostly by playing back at Dutch from out of position since he raised my and Clonie Gowen's blinds about 75% of the time. Unfortunately, everybody else seems to think its a good idea to spew chips to him. A number of interesting hands that I will try to post later. My goal is to win this just so I can get my pic on P5s...lol. Good luck to the other P5s still in it. If I can figure out the number to text live updates to I will try to do
  18. Is it possible to make cashouts from UB/Stars/FT to an epassporte account? If so, is a fee charged? The UB site says the only cashout method for US players is by check but when I emailed support they said you can cashout with epassporte. Thanks
  19. Annette's suckout killed me even though I was at a different table. When she hit her queen I decided I needed to roll the dice with KJ (pushed w/ 5M UG +1) and Pete called as I figured he would with most hands. Unfortunately his AT held up. Probably should have picked a better spot but not sure I had the luxury of waiting. Well played Pete.
  20. He's the only player on the table I fold to. If its Beat I instacall and same with Proofrock.
  21. Panda's killing me. I just raised 4x UG w/ QQ and he pushed for 2.5x more (20K). I'm getting 2 to 1 but if I lose I only have 8K left. He has been the tightest player at the table and based on the way he played the QQ earlier I put him on AA or KK. He showed KK...but I'm still not sure I like my play.
