Re: Blonde/Punters Lounge Poker Trillion Forum Challenge

In the situation we were in with 3 in the last four obviously the best strategy would have been first into the pot to shove to whittle the Blonde guy down as most of the time he isn't going to have a hand and the Ple'rs can fold. But I guarantee if either Pler had a big hand that Pler would have called.
I disagree with that analysis - especially where the blond guy is the short stack..... I think the optimal strategy is: If Blondie is out of the hand, then the shortest of the 3 PLrs should be allowed to win the blinds and antes - this significantly reduces the time pressure on all 3 players. If Blondie is still in (and, for arguments sake, last to act), then you should play your cards, based on position to keep the pressure on him (with SB probably open raising blondie all in if everyone else folds). No PL raise should be bigger than Blondies stack as if 2 PLrs remain in against him, then it should be checked down.....

Re: Blonde/Punters Lounge Poker Trillion Forum Challenge Yeah no hard feelings mate. When I was on the button I was min raisning Gaf so I cd fold to a rearaise and I felt that anfuk wd shove on Gaf otherwise. Obviously Gaf wasnt to know this and thought I was on the attack, but what can u do.

Re: Blonde/Punters Lounge Poker Trillion Forum Challenge I was happy to see you raising my blind for the very reason you say, but had no thoughts of coming over the top. I was looking to tread water from Ubers blind - he was big, I was short and I was hoping he'd look at it from the team perspective and just keep me alive till blondie was gone ;) I really wasnt looking to accumulate - my sole goal was to outlast blondie (it was an easy choice - I was a long way behind uber)

Re: Blonde/Punters Lounge Poker Trillion Forum Challenge I think it shows how straight the players here are. Some of these above posts show that players were instigating team tactics...but the lack of any collusion meant that the other players were not aware of what was being attempted. The eventual winner last night was extremely lucky to stay in the game...he went through a stage where every hand he played hit. OK...it's unfortunate that a 9 pt win dropped to a 3 point win during the final stages...but at least we stemmed the tide and with three games left we can still claw back the defecit...it's not over until the fat lady sings.

Re: Blonde/Punters Lounge Poker Trillion Forum Challenge It's interesting reading the blonde thread - I think they're as confused as we are about whats allowed, whats not allowed, whats ethical and whats not, what's borderline and whats over the line....... At the risk of sounding like slapdash, it's a big problem for this kind of single MTT team event - fundamentally it's a team event ..... but the rules probably/maybe require you to try and pretend it's an individual event, which the individual prize money re-enforces.......

Re: Blonde/Punters Lounge Poker Trillion Forum Challenge I read the forum too Gaf and it was interesting to read that someone said it's best to let the puntersloungers take each other on early doors. I've only played in one other event (other than last nights) so don't know what has really gone on before. On last nights evidence I thought the standard being played was jsut about even with some crazy plays coming from each forum.

:welcome to PL kristik. You are welcome to join the PL team for this tournament and we hope you will stay around and contribute to the forum in future. I have sent the password to your Private Messages. Just a word of warning. 4 posts requesting a password on the day you join the forum would have normally got you a ban if it were any other tournament.
