Re: The official Greg WORLD CHAMPION Raymer Thread

Traded emails with my friends, who are novices, all week. Some, who know poker almost exclusively through ESPN and the Travel Channel, were confused by the lack of "names" atop the leader board.

Re: Guess my opponent\'s hand

Since you've already shot down the obvious 76s, the only thing that seems to make sense is a PP between 99 and JJ. And even that doesn't make a ton of sense.

Re: Oh Yea? Call this.........

Can't believe no one has berated you yet for checking in the first place. You got what you deserved (a painful decision) for not betting it.

Re: \"Thank you sir. May I have another?\"

Outoforder,

You must be new. Dynasty criticizes the play of others with just about every other post he writes. And like it or not, he's usually right.

Re: Suggestions for WPT next year- starting a list

More limit tourneys (granted, there aren't as many to choose from as NL, but a guy can wish).

More coverage of non-final tables. Looks like they missed a golden opportunity when that super-table...

Re: How was my play?

Guess I'm alone on this one, but I really don't like the play against an unknown. At the flop, you ask yourself 2 questions:
1. Is my opponent capable of folding a weak ace or decent pocket...

Re: Could I have slow-played this better?

With that many seeing the flop and only two cards in the deck that remotely scare you, I think this is a pretty easy check. There's a pretty good chance someone will take a stab at it on the turn.

Re: My final comments on Phil H and his maturity

Easy,

It sounds like you're letting his lack of character get to you. Don't. He's just a guy that's great at something, and also happens to be a tool. Look at any sport, or anything for that...

Re: Weak play?

Call me nuts, but I have this strange feeling that he's holding either 77 or 88.

You played it fine; I figure there's about a 30% chance you won it.

If you like your bacon crispy, throw it on there. FYI, the little tray they give you is just big enough to handle the grease discharged from one pound of bacon.

Thanks for the reply. I definitely plan on checking out Saloon #10, and if I can play there, that's all the better.

Re: Tonight\'s \"Lucky\" episode- beginning of the end?

Agreed on all counts. But then again, I watched the re-run of last week, and it reaffirmed my faith in the show.

Re: Playing A-little when you hit the A
