  1. Why isnt there at least one decent PLO tourney on any site daily? I think a nightly PLO tourney with a buyin between $100-$200 every night would do well as long as theres some sort of guarantee even if its a small one.
  2. why would they sign players that do not play live full time? Im pretty sure there only interested in players getting good tv spots
  3. agree and like you said before put it in the high stakes filter not medium stakes this is obv not medium. I have always thought rebuy tourneys should keep reg open entire first hour
  4. plzzzzzzzzzz slap a guarantee on it and run it every night
  5. congrats sicko well deserved success for how shitty you ran last year :)
  6. My range depends on how I was playing this table at this time which I dont remember this specific spot anyways If I were you I would be putting it in with any ace, broadway hand, Kxs,Qxs,Jxs and any pair. Your stack is less than m of 2.5 which is too small so your looking to get it in with hands that have potential to double, tripple, or quintuple you up.
  7. nope ayellowvette got very strong warning for ripping...we all thought u could too but its a myth at rio
  8. not sure he plays high stakes nl he doesnt screw around with us in the donkaments hes too busy making real money lol
  9. even though im #1 railer of bac for theactionkid...goooooooooooo sgtkyle
  10. I emailed asking about the 100r and they said they replaced it with a $3r instead LOL. I swear pokerstars has become more worthless by the day ever since lee jones left. Pokerstars desperately needs somebody that knows something about poker to even come close with competing with full tilts organization and tournaments.
  11. Every time I get into this conversation with people that have no clue I tell them this: Every other game in the casino is designed for the house to have a mathematical tiny edge. Therefore over an infinite number of games, the casino must make money. The only way to make money at these games is to have the improbable happen. Play a small sample size, and have chance on your side, then stop playing before your sample size becomes big enough for the house's edge to show it's inevitable result and you lose. Poker does not have such a house edge. The house gets paid a small fee for each tour

  13. I guess i didnt explain this fully either...I feel like I have a strong understanding of how everything works and I think I explain it fairly well for avg person to understand but its much easier with more than just my opinion
  14. lol this is very good question and thought it might come up...I am good at developing theories and working them out my self but when it comes to explaining to somebody that has no knowledge of poker whatsoever I find it extremely difficult.
  15. Ever since I began playing poker one of my biggest weaknesses has been answering questions like "how do you know your going to have an income?" "Isnt poker pure luck?" I am having an argument and just having a hell of a time explaining why poker can be profitable. Does anybody have any good resources on this topic of explaining how poker is a skill game and how it separates from other forms of gambling.

    EPT copenhagan

    So, I went to play my first major live event in Copenhagen, Denmark last week. I played in day 1a my first table had Dario Minieri and Claus Nielson which both have had great success in the live poker world. Within the first hour I had AA,KK and QQ all losing hands but KK was the only one I showed down and crippled me. At the first break I had 2800 chips from the 10k starting stack which had been down to 1250 . At the end of the first hour i had KK in sb with 4 limpers so I raised to 600 at 25/50 and get 2 callers... flop comes Qh9h2d the first caller is a scandi donkface he didnt even know
  18. I arrived in dublin, Ireland on thursday 3/20 to play the 2008 Irish poker open and played Day 1b yesterday. The first half of the day was pretty exciting and I am extremely happy with how well I was playing which wasnt too difficult because the irish are psycho's and terrible at poker I dont care what anyone says this tournament is super weak. They do not fold post flop no matter what which is like a dream for me. During the 4th blind level at 100/200 I lost 20k pot with 910 on a jq7 raindbow board. I raised preflop from middle position and both the cutoff and button call. I lead 3/4 pot,
  19. I know! I know! i said I was going to keep up with this blog, but between traveling so much, and just being lazy with the blog has prevented me from posting as frequent as I should. Anyways, This is going to probably be a really long post about everything going on in my life right now. So, first lets start with how I have been doing in tournaments. I have been playing a very low volume of tournaments since my big score, but since my big UBOC win on December 16th 2007, I have the following final tables: Ultimate Bet: 3rd in the UB bounty for $2464 PokerStars: 4th in Sunday 2nd ch
  20. So, this Sunday started off as the normal get a bunch of top 30's in small stuff along with my 3rd Pokerstars sunday warm up cash in a row then BAM I won the UBOC main event $1k buy-in with 804 entrants for $181,575 first prize. sorry for short post ill try to make a longer one tomorrow
  21. I didnt have any final tables again this session. I have not had a final table since I final tabled the UB 200k 3 weeks ago. The only tournament I cashed on Pokerstars was the Warm up and I placed 197th which was in the money. On Bodog I cashed the 100k coming in 63rd when 63 paid. On Full tilt I cashed both night tourneys the 75 and 163 for a top 30 finish in both but nothing great. So, I am still cashing a large percentage of my tournaments just not getting any significant cashes for about the past month or so.

    UBOC event #1

    Last night was the first event of the UBOC (Ultimate bet online championship). The first event was a 6max event which had about 700 entrants. This was the only tourney I played and I busted somewhere around 160th when 66 paid.
