Re: I\'m a losing winning player???

OK, so the part about "bad losing streaks that burns up most or all of my hard earned bankroll" was actually a slight exaggeration...... I apologise for saying you were a breakeven player, but your...

Re: Scariest Movie Ever?

The Shining, just for the hacked up dead twins saying "for ever, and ever, and ever". That [censored] still gives me nightmares.

Re: Dell 30 Horizontal or Vertical?

Horizontal, the party beta won't be beta for too long (we hope!), so that should solve the issue with number of tables.

Re: Folding top pair to the turn CR.

I would usually call here, sometimes the donkbet is a good hand like AK/AQ/AJ/AT, but completely unconnected with the flop. If he has 2 pair you have hidden outs. And like Jeff says, could be...

Re: Playing Poker on a 30\" Monitor

What's going to be the deal with playing games on this monitor? Is there any potential problems, or will they just play out of the box, either with blacked out edges, or a wider panorama?

Re: PP10. 46s RIVER BLUFF

I disagree with the turn check. The read given was somewhat lacking, but against a vanilla fish:

1) He showed no aggression on the flop. The turn changes nothing -- it is unlikely he is paired....

Re: Totalbet 10% refund on Craps losses

2 mistakes (so far) in my post:

1) The second equation should read:

(0.458597)*1*0.95 + ((0.446247)*(-1 + 0.1)) + 0.095156(0) = 0.03404485

E.g. Average $3.50 on a single $100 bet.

Re: Totalbet 10% refund on Craps losses
