Re: Travelling to South America

Went there last January with my girlfriend. She grew up there so I relied on her completely for communication since I don't speak Spanish. Had a great time.

Spent half the time in Managua with...

Re: BEST GAME EVER (very NSFW)

Not being able to grab her hair was a big let down. Also, you can't rub her face. I find both of these are big turn ons for the ladies.

Re: See big scary guy fight stoner in Japan

It seems like everytime he starts throwing punches his opponents just panic and start trying to protect themselves. Of course, it's just clips so they might be tired.

Re: Yay, won the Stars 25,000 guarentee (no deals made)

Given you're avatar you should really 'Flexo' that post up a bit.

Nah, I'm kidding, you're a wonderful man.

Re: Too Aggressive?

I like it. If you don't bet this turn someone is probably going to bet the river and you'll have to call there. This way you might get a free showdown.

Re: In SB with 32o; 3 posters check

I don't like this at all.

Fold preflop. What does the raise accomplish? Are you trying to get HU with BB? 32 is not a good HU hand.

Are you trying to represent an ace on the flop? ...

Re: checking this river correct?

I suggest you review the last hundred hands you took to showdown and examine the river play on each.

Count how many times you:
1) missed a value bet
2) correctly checked when beaten
3)...

Re: Playing suited connectors

Grunching.

Preflop
Limping is the right play. Why do you want to limit the field with small suited connectors? Limiting the field is only good for hands with high card strength. You want to...

Re: Good site to clear bonuses at $0.25/$0.50?

If you want to play 6-max you should try Ultimate Bet. I started playing the .05/.10 6-max tables towards the end of my bonus and they cleared at the same rate as .25/.50 full ring or 6-max.

Re: Why won\'t anyone fold?!?

You've obviously never played .5/1 on Party if you find this unbelievable. I had one guy make a full house and he only called my bet on the river.

Another guy folded to my bet on the river when...

Re: 92s in the BB, what\'s your move?

I voted raise.
My thought was that I'm likely the best hand here and I want to get rid of drawing hands.
Reasons to fold are I have the worst kicker, I'm vulnerable to overcards, there's...

Re: PF question: suited junk in the bb vs pfr

You're 990/117600 calculation was correct. You shouldn't divide 117600 by 6. The fact that the order of the cards doesn't matter is already taken into account in the original calculation.

You are correct. Mercantides was indeed a merchant, probably the son of one as well.

I assumed the guy was doing some sort of experiment, acted on a dare/boast, or was drunk.

What is the ideal number of players to have at the table for this method of play? I think at a full table...

Re: Folding overcards? hand question

I fold them both. There's enough people in the pots that someone is looking at a flush or straight.

Also, overcards tend to get me in trouble so I look for any excuse to fold them. I might try a...
