  1. Question, On disconnection?

    Re: Question, On disconnection? Yeah its a problem with the boss software I think Kev. My mate has had exactly the same problem in a series of small pots and he has spoke to them about it. They say they are sorting it out. If you contact them about it (perhaps with hand history if you have it) you never know you might get a small bonus or something, probably worth a try.

  3. Posting Blinds when sitting at a cash table

    Re: Posting Blinds when sitting at a cash table That one :lol but nah being pinickity I always wait personally unless im frothing at the mouth for some reason. Nothing wrong with posting in the cut off though. The ones I like are when people post UTG thats just great play
  4. Sometimes it's not the winning that matters ...

    Re: Sometimes it's not the winning that matters ... Last week I was dealing a live tourny. A total rock who literally had not played a single hand for about an hour raised all in for 1200 (blinds 50/100) after 1 limper. The BB called and the limper called. Hes gota have a monster right? BB QQ Limper 99 Rock 84clubs Flop Q9x ALL CLUBS The rest is history. This 1 hand in isolation proves beyond all doubt live poker is fixed and mrmuzemans random card generator is rigged. Thankyou for your time
  5. Good fold or bad fold?

    Re: Good fold or bad fold? Probably something to work on that, well if youre getting well into cash games anyway mate. It presumably means you never fold when a flush looks very likely or someones really showing you they have trips etc. I misread the flop btw in this hand I thought it said 875 :$ 876 makes 2 pair combos and pocket 9s more dangerous, as well as made straights obv. Its extremely close I dont think its a mistake to call or fold oddswise really. As its a tourny I think a fold is good though cos survival is key, id call in cash. My mate whos a better player than I says he folds whatever it is, so I think you made a good decision. I think its neither here nor there really.
  6. Good fold or bad fold?

    Re: Good fold or bad fold? Well yeah I mean hes very likely drawing here, its a tough one cos hes not gona be far off coinflipping with you. I can see a case for folding or calling. Id call but thats me with my cash game cap on, in a tournament the fold is more of an opton. Roughly 6/4 on your money and you are probably JUST about ahead. Btw is that for real? I guess youre more a tourny player but still thats strange
  7. Keep the pot small or try and take it down?

    Re: Keep the pot small or try and take it down? Call everytime with deep stacks. Reraise with QQ though for sure, JJ its up to you
  8. Straddle Bets...oh boy!

    Re: Straddle Bets...oh boy! In cash games things like straddles, rabbit hunting, running it twice etc etc, they are all allowed, players just have to agree to them. Live cash is sort of like a game where the players decide what goes cos its all their own money etc on the line, rules get relaxed.
  9. Straddle Bets...oh boy!

    Re: Straddle Bets...oh boy! Those statements are not actually true although straddles are more 'regular' in pot limit I guess. You can still have them in NL no problem though and they do happen.
  10. Neteller

    Re: Neteller Could you clarify the question a bit more? It is free of charge to deposit and withdraw to Neteller from Doyles Room. But I presume you dont mean that?
  11. Straddle Bets...oh boy!

    Re: Straddle Bets...oh boy! UTG is no longer UTG as such, hes straddled so he is like the 'new' big blind so he would collect the chips. I dont think in the history of the human race anyone has ever all folded round to a straddle though. I cant speak for Alien races but id imagine the same would apply.
  12. Straddle Bets...oh boy!

    Re: Straddle Bets...oh boy! :lol Why is it disgusting. You gota remember all these things been around for donkeys years before net poker came along. Yeah straddling is commonplace in cardrooms. It is certainly the sort of thing youd find in a local cardroom on the cash tables anyway. I dont know if they are a regular feature of your typical 1/2 game in vegas but theyll be about as an option I would think. The straddle is just a bet that acts as 2x the BB. So in a $1/$2 game the player that is usually UTG posts a straddle bet of $4. When the action comes round to them they have the option to do whatever just like the BB normally would. A straddle is posted prior to the hand being dealt, so you cant see you have AA and then straddle for example! The basic idea of straddling is to get some action into a game. The opening raise will be larger as there is a straddle and there is just more initial money in the pot from the off encouraging people in etc. It loosens up a game and gets more gamble into it. Its just like a fun thing to induce action. Do any of you watch High Stakes? They straddle in that sometimes (Farha and Elezra love a good straddle - ooh er). Sometimes people at a table will agree to all straddle. Sometimes some people want to, others dont - that is fine there is no obligation they are not obligatory bets like blinds are. If you sit in live cash games you will encounter straddling sooner rather than later but its not a thing that happens every hand or anything at all dont worry, vast majority of the time there will be no straddling about. Youll know if a straddle is on its way youll hear the cry of 'STEEEEERADDLE'! If things get really wild you can even have super straddles and round and round we go! It has been known for every player at a table to straddle before :lol Rare but it can happen in a crazy game. (Basically normal 1/2 blinds, then 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 etc etc all blind before a hand is even dealt!).
  13. Doyles Room move and tourney info

    Re: Doyles Room move and tourney info Prima huh, whered you hear that? I was wondering where they were off to cos thats where ive been playing cash lately. I knew they werent going to ipoker. Oh well goodbye Doyles Room then I have a better rakeback deal elsewhere on Prima!
  14. skill against luck

    Re: skill against luck Ill agree with most stuff here. Tournies (if were talking big entrant MTTs) are sick variance/luck factor. In can be possible for people never to get the fair deal overall in tournaments I think and so the luck element still looms large. For example you or I may only get a chance to enter a couple or major live events ever in our lives, if the luck goes against us on these big money occasions we never get the chance for it to even out. Also it takes longer in MTTs just in general I believe to get the luck factor to even out. You can easily just keep getting stiffed at crucial points for a long time, it could take years for it to swing back in your favour really. In can work the other way too of course, where you keep getting lucky. In cash games if you play the same stakes for long enough there is 0% luck involved basically. If you have 1 million hands in pokertracker thats pretty much how it is.
  15. Dusk Till Dawn - permission granted

    Re: Dusk Till Dawn - permission granted I didnt mind the cavendish thing so much cos the owner of that knocked me out the Ladbrokes Poker Cruise ME :lol I heard through the grapevine that in 6 months or so there may possibly be a thing called a poker license for poker clubs.
