Re: Link to World Cup Draw information

Yuck.

Re: Any TeX / LaTex users here?

Two TPTK Hands in Cheapo Tournaments

Re: Dumbest home game rule ever?

When I visit my sister, we will occasionally play a small NLHE game (usually buy-in will be like $2 or $3) and we play with 0.05/0.10 blinds. My sister is a OK player but is kind of cautious and is...

Re: Fancy wheel

I had a very similar hand early in the tourney (during the rebuy period), before I was at your table. I drew two to a 742xx and caught 53. I just checked a couple of guys down to the final draw...

Re: NorCal Lowball: Pat Nine w/ Joker

I haven't played very much A-5 lowball in my life, but I just don't think the nine is good here. I'm breaking if it's me.

Re: Worst WSOP Final Table Ever

Yep, Al Krux was at his 3rd main event final table (I think 1990 and 1995 were his other ones) and he was also a bracelet holder (PLHE in 1996). So the 2004 FT had 3 prior bracelet winners...
