  1. Dyzalot has disappeared a number of times throughout the years when I've known him- so at first (and even now) I don't think this is entirely something to be nervous about as I would with other people. Having said that.. last I know he was in Costa Rica 2 weeks ago, and when I don't hear from someone for a few weeks living in a third world country, that is inherently a little scary. Fwiw, I am his backer and more importantly his friend- and just want to make sure he's safe.
  2. Is Dyzalot ok? I've been trying to reach him for the last 2 weeks (last spoke to him Aug 9) and haven't heard back. I can't tell if there is any truth to this thread or if its all joke and am worried about him. He may like to argue a little much for my tastes, but is overall a good person and I hope all is well with him.
  3. cool write up, look forward to part 2
  4. No War Thread?

    Thanks for the congrats in this thread and for the kind words War. Was fun playing with a p5's OT legend. I thought you played very well.
  5. Congrats to Bukowski101 on winning the $1100 heads up tournament at the Chicago Poker Classic. I don't know many people that have worked harder on their game over the years. Great to see his dedication paying off with a big score like this.
  6. I'm not sure why my profile isn't loading/ it isn't working for me either. I was ranked #1 in 06, but it was before automated rankings, so my profile (when it was accesible) has my highest ranking listed as 8th.
  7. There are times and spots where this would be the optimal line for this spot... not saying it is here, because I don't have enough info on what is going on, but just wanted to play devil's advocate a little. Certainly it's a +ev line as has been mentioned a couple times already.

  9. Triple Crown outdated

    I don't mind if they up the prizepool requirement, I'm not trying to make it easier, just think its stupid that people have to grind ub to get one nowadays
  10. Triple Crown outdated

    I know p5's has updated the requirements for a TC a couple of times over the years. I think a new update is needed. The online poker scene has changed a ton since the last update. One of the things that have happened is that virtually all the big tournaments are on 2 sites. Winning a tournament on Cake or Bodog (and to an extent Cereus) is much less prestigious that winning one on Stars or FTP. I believe that award should be changed to reflect this reality. The 3 different site requirement should be dropped and a new clause requiring at least 2 wins to me on FTP/Stars should be implemented. Thoughts?
  11. The_Dean221

    well done, congrats
  12. its preety crazy reading the pm's he sent out, he almost got caught be a few people, but then just told them i had been hacked and all was well. in the future, everyone should pm mod's/admin if anything suspicious like this is going down. hope this is then end of this headache
  13. not just you, I'm not German, and yes the scammer deleted a few of my screen names
  14. my accounts on all the poker sites appear to be fine. I emailed them before asking them to severly limit my abilities, but this is obv still very fustrating/of concern. i don't know what to do to get this fixed, but appreciate any help, and obviously please Don't send any money. can a good samaritan crosspost this on 2+2 for me, as i cant seem to be able to login there or reset my login details.
  15. I have all these trade request talks, and I didnt initiate them, dont trade with me please confirmed that something is up, i've emailed all the sites to freeze my accounts, but please be on the lookout on both here and 2+2, as I don't need any trades etc looks like wernerNL on ftp is the one doing this per pm's please investigate/ip ban him p5's
  16. Congrats Gary, awesome accomplishment, well played
  17. Obviously the last 2 pre Nov days are Friday and Sat again, so that another issue. At the same time I can't imagine skipping the ME and I can't imagine playing through Saturday in it. I figure that the vast majority of the time I won't have to worry about the last days, but Foucalt on 2+2 brings up a good point about how all the equity in tournaments is decided at the end, and if I can't play that surely it's neg -ev. I'm interested in how -EV it is. Also, while logically it should be the same sitting out day 2 vs sitting out day 6, the latter will be much harder for me.
  18. I am an orthodox Jew and therefore I can't play poker on the Sabbath, which according to Jewish law runs approximately from Friday Sundown to 25 hours from then. I'm thinking about playing the main event and sitting out for the last part of day 2, namely from about 725pm onwards. Note that Day 2 starts at noon and the structure of the Main event is: 30k start stack, 120 min levels, 20 min break, 90min dinner break after 2nd level of day. Assuming all goes as scheduled, Day 2 schedule looks like: 12-2- level 5 (2-400 50a) 2-220-break 220-420- level 6 (250-500 50a) 420-550- dinner 550- 750- level 7 (3-600 75a) level 8 is 4-800 w/ 100a So I could get through the majority of level 7 (maybe half of it if things do go as scheduled). How many chips do you think I will lose over the course of the 1-1.5 levels I sit out. How do you think it will impact my (a person's) roi?
