Good luck!

Re: The poker thread

I'm going to enter a WSOP Circuit event in the Rio next week. Still deciding which day to enter.

I really really don't like the payout structure of these events though. They only pay 10-12% of the field. The WSOP proper events in the summer pay out 15-20% of the field which is much better. My ultimate goal will be to cash but I am very excited to test my skills against some good players. The $365 buy in is hefty but it's better than just playing the $65 daily events at random casinos.

Re: The poker thread

down to 3 left. The champion will be decided tonight. Qui Nguyen, Cliff Josephy and Gordon Vayo.

I was really disappointed to see Rusicka run into trip 8s two straight times that eventually sent him to the rail in 5th. He had been playing so well and was an interesting player to watch. He got unlucky to run into monster hands like that consecutively but he maximized his own damage each time with failed power bluff moves.

Nguyen has been impressive so far.

Re: The poker thread

seriously considered making the 2.5 hour drive to Las Vegas to watch the main event final table in person tomorrow. But there's no guarantee I would get in as the players fanbases would probably be lining up hours early to get in. Plus watching poker for 10 hours or more with no hole cards or commentary would be a grind. I would have to drive home at 4;30 am or so. I'll go with the ESPN hole card coverage

Im getting back into poker. Re watching the final table from 2014, which was a great final table year. This year's November Nine starts on Sunday night

I knew a guy who was waiting for a cab and decided to play online poker to kill some time.

In 5 minutes he lost his entire online bankroll of $1800.

I never asked him if he managed to pay for the cab.

I am a huge fan of HSP (High Stakes Poker) cash game show on GSN and NBC poker after dark sit and goes too...

My favorite pro players are: Greenstein, Negreanu, Farah, Ivey and Antonius.

I'm looking forward to playing the WSOP main event in Vegas this year
Only way you can win at poker is playing against your cats.

Full Tilt Poker is returning:

I'll see if my account still works tonight.

Re: The poker thread

Wow! Only man to win the WSOP main event on both sides of the Atlantic.

Even if you don't like Hellmuth Jr. you got to give credit when credit is due.

Re: The poker thread

Hellmuth is not good at cash game. I don't think he ever plays online poker, and the cash game world is owned by online sharks. Anytime he tried to play at the high stakes games he got crushed.

Re: The poker thread

He is a good tournament player I admit. Online, he would get crushed (on cash).

You can't win 13 bracelets on luck. Other players have a hard time adapting to his unorthodox style imo.
