Re: Space Invaders

Tim:

I'm playing it on a PS2 - original Taito ROM, so all the tricks and the likes work as they should. What I do is create a "5 x 1" setup, as described in the guide.

Re: Watch out for the \"Glasgow kiss\"

I'm in Glasgow - Cash games really do suck here. 6 Card Omaha and the likes, all in semi-legal clubs. Casinos run 10 rebuy tournaments regularly, and few cash games. Apart from the poker, you'll...

9s 3s 5h

Pot is around 50, and he...

2/4nl hand recalled from memory. Villain has $250-ish, and I cover.

I'm dealt two red queens in mid-late position, and make it 20 to go after a limper. Only the button and I see the flop of:
