Thats funny. Personally I don't mind leaving myself available for search because the players I would prefer not to play against wouldn't be trying to follow me, anyway [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

exactly, the people who regularly call me out or follow me around are donks who think i'm a donk because they saw me make one loose play 1000 hands ago

If u guys start doing it,I wouldn't be pissed.I'd follow u around.

You would not follow some around. Some have their names blocked from search. FWIW, I used to have mine blocked but unblocked it for a friend. I noticed a 56/14 was following me around. I lost some big hands to him the first time we played. Now he must think he's "due" because I have been taking money from him for a month and he keeps coming back...

This is hilarious. I was once stalked by a [censored] talking table coach for like a month. He was down a grand to me by the end of it.

Oh, ok, guess we have confirmation then that it's the blind posting thing.
Well, as that thread points out, it's not even +EV.
Or do you think it is?

What if it's 15/30 and the SB is 2/3 of a bet, it's a 10-player table and you get to play eight hands for 60% of the cost of ten hands, and the only good player at the table is the very aggressive BB and you don't want any more blind wars HU OOP with him?

The answer as usual is "it depends". There are absolutely situations where skipping the SB would be major +EV.

Party needs to stop this. I commend them for their innovation in using threatening letters to do so. Every other site I've played at uses the ineffective and old-fashioned "software method" of enforcing the rules.

Actually the type of players following me around were really,tight players who aren't very creative making a couple buks a day playing simple poker.They wouldn't put much pressure on me,so they were perfect for my left anyway.I often left when the good players were skipping.I had a casino point of view,let the bad player skip,so he could put that savings back on the table.The funny thing was the guy who caused maybe the final straw is a two plus twoer who was on my left.Now that's bad poker.I made the mistake by staying while they bitched.Before I left right away.It's always a tought decision wether to milk the most now or try to not burn it out.Anyway,I replied to Party tellin them I would stop and they sent me this............Thank you for contacting us.
