no reply required...entertaining hand
I must assume you're kidding at this point. The hand summary clearly states the results. No one had a full house. Both players had Quads.

David Chiu on FTP...Do I Have a Complaint??
actually tiger...I'll go ya one better. 99% of Golf pros would still destroy 99% of the golfers at this hypothetical club playing with only a 7iron and a putter. I remember a story about a pro golfer who triple bogeyed the 18th on sunday and lost the tourney. He told his caddy he coulda played the whole par 5 with his putter and still woulda won. His caddy said okay, lets bet. (wish I could remember thsi golfers name, but he's well known). He went out and bogeyed the hole with his putter right after. Moral of the story' WTF do I know about morals' But "these guys are good".

to all the people who bitch and moan and berate peoples play
My standby is he paid his (insert buyin amount) just like the rest of us so let him play his own cards. But I like the one "that was actually a good play,...." It's perfect. Encourages the donk to continue donking and gets the berater to tilt a bit harder. As an added benefit you may get the berater to start firing shots at you, which I love cuz I'm the worlds greatest chatbox shitalker!

Frustration Setting In.......Skill vs. Luck
This thread is interesting cuz earlier this week we had uclarounder talking about high variance he was dealing with at the 6s, and this thread has a couple more people rueing variance...I also have had what I'd consider a horrible weak given that I think I'm playing very well. So I don't wanna hijack, but my observation based on the boards this week is that p5ers are suffering some variance this week.

party poker mid level cash games + up rigged?
me too!!! on all counts except...I'd consider folding a10o to the pf raise..to easily dominated and a stack twice the size might have just folded the 67 a few hands later! (of course you'd need to push it pf). At the very least...don't make that bet on the R. In short check your play not the website. And..u really are new to this board if you thought a "rigged" post was gonna get any sympathy. GL

uggg!!! Bad Day....please flame me because I really like the abuse.
One of those days, Ks lose to As on the bubble, every flush and str8 draw calls and hits to bust your set (3 times), dominating aces spewing chips when the undercard hits. And when you finally stand up to the table bully with a marginal hand he turns over a monster. Yeah....one of thooooooose days.

SNG Players - How many of you make this fold?
"given that all players have equal ability" When does this happen' BTW...your right...a theorem is much more developed, it is also replicable, published and subject to peer review. But even a theory is not proven. Furthermore, ICM is not even a theorem.....it is a "MODEL". Nuff said. Models are NEVER perfect. also BTW....please don't flame me...I fear Jay shark and his population status.

SNG Players - How many of you make this fold?
pisnice, I agree that "playing to win" is more important in MTT and your argument is sound. But "playing to win" is also still important in SNGs even if less so than MTTs. I'm not folding AK here and waiting for someone else to double off of the bigstack. If I bust 35% of the time than so be it. But a double here gives you a legitimate shot at winning. Which is what I want, even though it's NOT a MTT

SNG Players - How many of you make this fold?
VNH relativity, maybe sheets can chime in here again, but I swear I read/heard him say some the very similar to this ie...ICM is a theoretical model that has never been proven full proof. It is a tool we use to help shape our decisions, and perhaps the best tool we have. But it is not the only tool. Obv I'm paraphrasing above, but that's what my malted hops and bong-resin clogged brain remembers. Cheers.

2nd in chips do you lay down AK
wow, I'm certainly outvoted here. I just think you gotta tighten his range waaaay up when he limp reraises all in especially if you saw him do this w/ Ks. He might be on Qs or js even, but you're still trailing in a race for 1/2 your stack. I don't think you're that desperate. Also, above in that scenarios ran, you're trailing 3 out of 3 scenarios. Your closest one is too loose for his range. I still fold. But respect all p5ers!

2nd in chips do you lay down AK
lol at your ego dice. Do you know one of your dissenters is a well repected p5er who could play you under the table' What's namecalling going to accomplish on this, a DISCUSSION board. State your opinion and collaborating evidence, that is what we want to read. Not namecalling. It's junvenile behavior like this that ends a very good thread. Don't be that guy who has to put people down on the internet to feel good about himself. Sad.

2nd in chips do you lay down AK
someone else made this argument, but I think playing aggressive on the bubble means making raises fairly often that you'll laydown to a reshove. If I notice they're no longer respecting my raises, I play accordingly. Also, if I can encourage people to start shoving weak hands at me and I'm on 2nd stack...I'll bust em eventually. No matter my table image I play accordingly. I don't make assumptions about a player based on one laydown to a reraise, and if my opponent does than I don't think he's very good at reading players. BTW, I've seen way less sophisticated plays then this in the world ...

2nd in chips do you lay down AK
I'm folding. Why risk almost 1/2 your stack in a race' Limp re-raisers all in are usually strong imo. And to the guy who said "if you knew he was on 2s" that you'd call. I'd say; why' Why would you call off almost half your stack to be behind in a race'

What do you do? Come and play a hand with me...
I agree with this assesment except "If you fold, unless you are lucky you prob won't make the final table." Truthfully, if you call, unless you are lucky you probably won't be playing anymore. I don't raise this hand preflop, and calling is completely reasonable, but I have a rule: If I'm almost certainly behind, I don't want to put my tourney at stake. Nitty I know, but I think the best players I see are ahead when the cards turn over.

I disagree pokeshow (respectfully), and this may be a leak in my game, but I'm respecting this play outta the blind and especially if it's coming from a solid player. I'm just stoked supermoves agrees with me. I surely am elite population now.
