  1. AlbusFawkes is yer man to ask!
  2. He definitely is! Well played McG. Not sure who got 3rd place in the league....
  3. The first tourney has been set up as a $3 entry. Is this intentional?
  4. Ouch! I assume it all went in on the flop, in which case he's favourite anyway. Unlucky to lose with quad Aces. If you'd done this in the Venetian last March you would have won $100,000+!!
  5. You're welcome! I usually glaze over when somebody regales me with their bad beat story, but this one is a doozie. Note that on the flop JJ has no back door flush/straight draws, and no way of splitting the pot. He has to hit running Jacks. When I said you are 99.9% to win, I was quoting your actual equity. I wasn't just estimating it!
  6. Probably the worst bad beat I've ever witnesses. You're 99.9% favourite on the flop.
  7. I returned from Vegas in early March 2020, after a slightly unprofitable trip. Little did I know that, and wouldn't have believed you if you had told me, I wasn't going to play another live hand in 2020! I've never considered myself as a winning online player. All of my successes have come on the live circuit. Not that I'm some sort of soul reader at the table, more due to the fact that I get too easily distracted when I'm sat in front of my laptop, and an annoying inability to multi-table. As such, my poker career (not really a career) is very much on hold. I've stopped reading poker boo
  8. My (limited) experience of bounty tournaments is that players put way too much importance on winning a bounty, and so call off too wide, or are too willing to play for stacks. This is particularly true in the later stages of non-progressive bounty tourneys. There are a few adjustments you should make, so I wouldn't say that bounties add nothing to the skill level.
  9. In answer to Avongirl's question, I am enjoying the Bounty leg, and would like to see it continue. The numbers seem to be holding up, so i assume there's no great opposition to it. Obviously, if numbers begin to fall we could switch back. Re Progressive v Normal Bounty. I have no preference.
  10. I should have taken a screen shot from Wednesday, but didn't. I've included the result from the PokerStars Home Games Lobby,
  11. Seeing as it didn't get enough entrants to run last time, shouldn't we conclude that some of us don't consider Omaha Hi Lo "fun"? How about a NLHE Bounty?
  12. Sorry to hear this. Get well soon. Helen x
  13. A few observations..... Point 1. I'm not an online player. Most of my modest successes have come from live tourneys, in fields of 100-300 players, with buy ins of a few hundred pounds. In these comps I believe I have a decent edge, As such, it is of no advantage to register late, so I always ensure I start as soon as possible. As far as I'm concerned, anyone entering the comp 1 or 2 hours later is playing sub-optimally, as they are missing out on the chance to win chips from the weaker players early on. So entering asap is optimal, and late reggers are playing this tourney sub-optimal.
  14. I'm not actually against late reggers per se, but it does seem to go on for too long. The 10 min rule seems way too short to me. What time did registration actually close? Maybe we should introduce a rule where anyone who doesn't register by the first break, isn't eligible for points in the league?
  15. So QQ is the very bottom of your 3-bet shoving range? What would you do with 88 here? Fold?
  16. Only just seen this, and unlucky on the run out, but I think the call with AJo is mandatory against all but the very tightest of ranges.
  17. Nice one! I've had 4 online and 1 live. The live one was AA v AQ. AA won with a royal

  19. Pokerstars have cancelled late reg for the home games. If you want to play on Wednesday then please register early.
  20. Thanks Dan. I didn't mean to push the bounty onto you! We should probably get some sort of consensus before changing things around. Maybe if the bounty was picked at random once the registration has closed? Some years ago a local casino used to have a Mystery Bounty, so no-one knew who the bounty was. It could only be won by someone who had registered at the start and would roll over. I won it one week for 500 quid!
  21. Just to point out, it is a disadvantage to be a bounty, especially when the bounty is so big relative to the buy-in. It seems unfair that the same player should have the burden of being the target every week.
  22. First of all. if you win the tourney then you should win the bounty! Secondly, would it be better if the bounty changed each week? My suggestion would be to put it on the previous weeks winner.
