"What we think or what we believe is, in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 end, of little consequence. The only thing of consequence is what we do."
John Ruskin

It's been a jolly good run, hasn't it? This once nascent part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 BlogSphere is now a full-blown community and I’m thrilled to have been even a small part of that growth. I never woulda thought that I’d be referred to as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 damn Blogfacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r of this burgeoning scene, as I was once. I’m both humbled and honored.

And frankly, a tad burnt out.

I have been posting for over nine full months now.
I have 180 posts. That's about 20 a month, on average.
If you consider cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 length of my posts, it's quite insane.
I need professional help.

And not just ONE shrink, mind you. I need a TEAM. 24/7 help.

It's very difficult to make a compelling poker blog (or any blog, for that matter) - post after post after post. My fellow bloggers (poker or not) understand this. And hell, we do this for free, for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 love of poker. I almost love reading, studying, talking poker more than I do playing. And this humble poker blog is just an extension of that.

I truly want to say thanks to everyone who read and supported this Guinness-fueled poker blog with a Party Poker bonus code IGGY, an email or comment, or even just for checking in here, now and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n. So, thanks to my peers for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 inspiration to continue blogging, and to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 silent majority of my visitors who made it worthwhile to do so.

Sure, I enjoy espousing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 benefits of Party, Empire and even Pacific Poker (get on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tourneys have AWESOME OVERLAY – try it, you’ll like it, I promise! Please use my link to sign up, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re aren't bonus codes) but honestly, it’s extremely difficult to make any money this way. Anyone who has tried this route understands cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 futility.

And in that vein, I must point out PokerGrub’s wonderful behind-cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365-scenes post about affiliates in both poker and casino whoring. Because he really knows his way around cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 online casino side of things (and is a far superior writer, anyway), I’d like to quote cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Master of Bonus Whoring himself:

---

When you sign up to a poker site through an affiliate link, your account is tagged as being referred by that person. To you, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 player, it's transparent and means nothing. You'd normally sign up anyway and play regularly, and you'd get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same signup bonuses whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r signing up on your own or through an affiliate. But it's advantageous to us affiliates because depending on our program, we eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r get a set amount per signup or we get a small percentage of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rake you generate.

We also pay for part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bonuses you receive. If you sign up, play cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 exact number of required raked hands to release cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bonus, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n cashout never to return, it leaves us in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 negative.
---

This happens often, although I’m not sure why. I can’t fathom why anyone would be playing poker online anywhere but Party and Empire. Well sure, Pacific has some uber-soft tournaments, but still, Party is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 biggest aquarium in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world right now, hands down. But it sucks when you end up with a negative equity signup.

So my long-winded point is, please consider signing up with my bonus codes if you haven’t done so previously. You will thank me. And it might provide some motivation for me to get back on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 saddle and continue this monstrosity of a blog. Please don't make me grovel! I've had TWO signups cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last 30 days and one was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 situation that Grubby spoke so eloquently about above.

As it stands now, I’m going on hiatus for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 unforeseeable future to focus solely on playing poker. I may only be gone for a few weeks if I re-charge cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 batteries quickly. If not, I'll be gone longer. I've archived cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 site, and whatever that implies.

Plus, it's sad. I've turned into one of those losers who post pictures of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir damn cat on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir web site.

Oh cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 humanity.

It's been twelve days since a car smashed him into a bleeding, broken mess. He is thankfully still alive and improving slightly. The vets keep stressing that this will be a long, long road to recovery. His face is still completely mashed from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 broken jaw issues and he’s looking very rough, but still, this is one damn tough tabby. I don’t wanna jinx him but so far:

Monty 1 Car 0

Here is an excellent summation of Monty's personality:



Sigh, I hope he makes it home soon. Thanks again to all who sent positive vibes.

Segue back to poker: Again, it's hard to believe what's going on right now with poker and poker blogs. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. It's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker gold rush. Get on board, folks. The main vein is at Party Poker. Stick $50 in and try cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fifty cent – one dollar tables if you must – you won’t believe it till you see it. Even if you've only just read one poker book, and that poker book is Idiot's Guide to Poker, still, you are far ahead of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fish.

So now I’m here to attempt one last uber-post before taking a sabbatical. I’ve got an odd collection of poker content: 2004 WSOP stuff, WPT news, poker news articles, a vintage poker pro flame war (I know you love those), and of course, new poker blogs.

So let’s see if I can bang this out quick. I’m leaving town early in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 morning for vacation and am counting on Guinness to give me cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 strength to link all this random stuff up.

Let's rock n roll, shall we?

Want some more proof that Poker is RED HOT? Here's a take from Yahoo Biz:

Just read an article in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 May 2004 edition of Washington Monthly about "Why cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Internet generation loves to play poker," as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sub-title has it. The answer, in short: "Strategy-oriented, individualistic, and embedded in a nice masculine mythology, poker is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 perfect game for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 revenge-of-cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365-nerds generation looking to square cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir intelligence with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir inner maleness."

I have been trying to think about various ways that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Internet influences vice control. One way is by providing a low-cost means to avoid some social forms of regulation that are built-in to bricks-and-mortar vice. On cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Internet, you do not have to deal with a sales clerk when you purchase pornography, nor do you have to worry about running into your boss. But cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Washington Monthly article mentioned anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r twist on this cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365me: "For many would-be players, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fear of looking like confused novices in front of a room full of old hands used to keep cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tables. Now, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 online poker rooms provide a convenient place to learn and refine cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game at home with no one watching." And one ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r Internet-based gambling innovation: poker blogs (like here and here)!


Wow, Andy Glazer wrote this interesting piece about poker for ESPN. Not to beat a dead horse, but I truly enjoy everything he writes:
Are poker superstars possible?

As a result of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournament explosion, it has become almost impossible to compare achievements from different eras. In my recent report on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 2004 WSOP, I stated that Dan Harrington's feat of making cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final table (actually cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final four, with a third-place finish in 2003 and a fourth-place finish in 2004) cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last two years, when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fields included 839 and 2,576 entries, is far more impressive than Stu Ungar's consecutive victories in 1980 and 1981 -- and (though I didn't make this next point in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story) arguably more impressive than Johnny Chan's back-to-back wins in 1987-88, simply because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fields Ungar and Chan faced were mere fractions of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 size of those Harrington faced.

Can't argue with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 numbers. Personally, as a tight player, I love Action Dan's success in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se large field events.

feature more bits about poker!

Microsoft Corporation has just announced it has acquired Texas
Hold'Em (TM) poker in a cash and stock deal worth approximately 3.6
Billion US dollars. Texas Hold'Em (TM) is a variation on poker that
uses two down-cards (or "hole") cards and five shared up-cards (or
"community") cards to create a fascinating betting game that is easy
to learn but takes a long time to master.

Microsoft Corporation had until recently been cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 leader in card
games, after its 1995 acquisition of Solitaire(TM) and Freecell(TM).
Solitaire(TM) is currently only number three in market share for card
games. Texas Hold'Em (TM) and Omaha (TM) have taken cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 number one and
number two spots, respectively.

In an interview by phone with CEO Steve Ballmer, he stated, "With cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
explosion in popularity in poker, especially Texas Hold'Em (TM), we
knew we had to get a piece of this. We're number two in card games
now, with Solitaire(TM), but this acquisition will put us back up to
number one!" When asked about number two Omaha (TM), Balmer replied,
"They used to call me 'Old Shoebox'. In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Harvard days, Bill and I
used to play poker with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 guys and I kept all my money in a shoebox.
People were scared of me, because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y never knew how much bankroll I
had inside cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 shoebox."

When asked about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 legality of such an angle, Ballmer replied, "It's
not an angle unless cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 floor person rules against it. Let's just say
that I'm 6'10" and 280 pounds."

Microsoft has been known to muscle in on an industry, often with a
number two or number three market share and taking over. The success
of its various operating systems and office productivity suites tells
a story of domination and takeover. Vice President of Marketing at
Microsoft, Yuriy Colader stated, "We [Microsoft] have taken over
almost everything imaginable. The Windows(TM) platform has infected
90% of all computers, our Microsoft Office(TM) suite is installed on
85% of all desktop PCs, and Internet Explorer(TM) has mercilessly
crushed and destroyed pacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365tic Netscape Corporation!"

Some industry veterans worry about Microsoft's ability to keep high
quality and prevent so-called pirates from playing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game without
paying Microsoft. At press time, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re were reports of a card virus
that infects any game of Texas Hold'Em (TM) being played. Often, in
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 middle of a hand, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cards all turn blue and play cannot
continue. The only recourse it to "reboot" -- a procedure in which
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 players sit idly by while cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 dealer puts cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cards back in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir
original boxes, opens cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m again, resuffles cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 decks and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n begins
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hand again.

Ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs say that Microsoft's licensing scheme, developed to stop poker
hackers and pirates, who play Texas Hold'Em (TM) illegally, have gone
too far. Microsoft's license strings are only valid if a player uses
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same playing style as when he or she signed up for Texas Hold'Em.
If cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 player starts playing on tilt, or perhaps too tightly, or even
if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 number of chips in his or her bankroll changes significantly,
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 license string will become invalid. The player will cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n have to
contact Microsoft to get a new license string, often for an additional
charge, not including support charges and phone charges, if any.

A well respected professional poker player, Howard Lederer was quoted
as saying, "They [Microsoft] have really ruined cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game for us. We
used to be able to play 30 to 40 hands per hour. Now with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 reboots
and license strings, it takes a hour to play 3 hands. A lot of people
are upset."

Anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r well respected and fat poker player who won cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 World
Championship title last year, Chris Moneymaker, noted, "I've fed cows.
And boy, I tell you, this ain't no cow!"

In a separate interview with Greg Maffei, former CFO of Microsoft
Corporation, he stated, "Microsoft made a really smart move.
Currently, 50 million people play poker regularly in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 US. Of
those, about 120 million play Texas Hold'Em (TM). If you count people
who play an unlicensed copy of Texas Hold'Em worldwide, it could be as
high as 1.2 billion people. If we charge each of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m $120 per
person, per hand, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y [Microsoft] could really add some more money to
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $50 billion cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y have in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bank."

Microsoft has already released two upgrades to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 popular card game.
One feature is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 introduction of six more suits, or colours and
shapes used in differentiating types of cards with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same rank. In
a press release on Microsoft's website, Chairman Bill Gates writes,
"This is an extraordinary evolution in card playing. We believe it
will increase card play 16 times and reduce cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 costs associated with
playing Texas Hold'Em (TM). This is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first step in a long journey
down cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker road. We've only scratched cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 surface on what we can
do with poker."

Some reports have surfaced that a so-called "Service Pack", or bug
fix, will be available shortly to remedy cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "blue cards of death
syndrome". A spokesperson for Microsoft stated, "The Service Pack
will be available for licensed users of Texas Hold'Em (TM) 2003 and
2004. Previous users of Texas Hold'Em (TM) will not be supported. The
Service Pack will be inexpensive, almost free. We believe it will
make a huge imapact in poker players' lives."

I would be remiss if I didn't point out Hank's excellent last post on poker and personality, something I find fascinating. Hank makes several great points about ALL cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 qualities it takes to become a winning player. Damn, is anyone writing better cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ory posts than my man, Hank?

Speaking of personality and how it ties into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 all important "image" factor, I found this insightful snippet from poker professional, Daniel Negreanu, about Mike Caro's philosophy of a wild image being +EV:

----
Mike's wild and crazy antics work on novice to average players. Against excellent players, he is just giving away a ton of information about his own hand.

When I used to play 10-20 through 30-60, that wild and crazy image was much more lucrative cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n a solid tight one. In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 higher limit games, it simply doesn't work 'as well'.

For my esteemed women readers and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 weirdo's who like to play as females, I found this forum: PokerChix.

---
Just wanted to make people on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 forum aware of a women's only forum called PokerChix. It is a nice friendly forum for women in poker to exchange information and support each ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r. If you are female, or know someone who is and wants to join, check it out.

Speaking of wierdo's who love to play poker under a female moniker, one of my long-term online poker heroes is Ms. Sunshine, a prolific poster on 2+2. When she writes, I read. And she had a superb response to a low-limit player who expressed concern about playing online poker with sites that PokerTracker supports.

Anyway, here is Ms. Sunshine in bold text, giving this newish player
some excellent advice.

I don't want to play with Pokertracker players- am I mad?

---
OK, I'm wondering if I'm mad. I'd appreciate opinions.

We don't have alot of information on that, but what we do have, that you're starting to post at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Zoo is not good on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 personal mental health front.

I play low buy in NLHE and $5-20 tournaments. I have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 choice between playing at sites that Pokertracker supports, allow notes etc and sites that don't. (GoldenPalace for example.)

To cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 non-PT user, when you're weighting different factors in choosing a poker site, give little weight to whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r it is PT supported. Look for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 softest games in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 limits and game you play.

I regard myself as a good learner, but not intermediate or expert (I'm a profitable player, I know cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re are large holes in my game but I'm trying to rectify cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m). Against that, I'm relatively inexperienced compared to most good players.

First, welcome. Good post, it caught my interest. It seems you're on a good learning curve to play winning poker. Let me help. Get PT. It will help you get to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 inner game of poker. My PT use is almost all note driven. I rarely study MY game. Here's what my auto-notes show me for NLH players:

{{seeFLOP 24 - raisePF 3 - chkRAISE 2 - H 87}}

This gives just cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 basics, but enough to give you a handle on what type of player he/she is. My wife who knows nothing about PT, except how to turn on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 auto-request HH feature, and actually groaned when she saw cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 % numbers instead of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 plain text english notes, she was used to, loves cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se notes now. My wife must have notes to play. With Party's recent problem with large notes.txt files and my switching to NLH cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re were few notes for her $10-20 LH games. She whined for awhile cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n switched to NLH also. She's a big winner over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last couple of weeks so cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 whining has slowed. Avoiding cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tight guys, except to work on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir blinds, making cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 loose callers pay, and letting cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 LAGs hang cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365mselves, is helped by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 PT auto-notes.


In general, my instinct is to avoid sites where it is easier for good players to use technology like PT to carve me up.

See above, for most important reasons for picking poker sites.

I ask myself: Would I racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r be on a site where a good player has to work out for himself that I play too loose in EP or one where he can find out at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 click of a button?

Would I racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r play at a site where a good player can't find out what I lost with on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 river, or one where he gets cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hand history instantly?

These are good questions.

Most large sites are PT supported, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r smaller sites have a smaller known pool of players in each game area and limit. With less turn-over, everyone pretty much knows everyone's game and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is little chance, even with PT or good manual notes, of getting an infomational edge.

So, yes, playing smaller sites keeps you from a disadvantage from ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r players knowing much more about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 players in your current game than you.


Of course, if I had PT, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n my attitude would be different, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way I see it, if I sit down at a virtual table that suports hand histories, pokertracker, and player stats, and I don't have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 optimum tools for taking advantage of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se offerings from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 site, I'm just giving away money.

So, should I just buy Pokertracker? My thought is, no, because I'm not at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 stage where it will help me refine my game. I'm still learning cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 core principles, and while learning about how I can make more with KQs from a programme will help, I feel I need to internalise cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 learning first. From those of you who use PT, am I just being silly?

You should be using cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r forums here. When cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y discuss hands, PT data is frequently used and is an important part of how a hand is played to max +EV. PT is too full of data and it takes awhile to get used to it. It's worth it.

Finally, If I'm right about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 advantage PT and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 like gives those who use it, isn't that a competitive advantage for those sites that don't support it? As a learner, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y're surely a safer place to play.

Most small poker sites, would like to lose cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 advantages of being small.

Good luck. Continue posting.

Geez, it's rare to see such kind and helpful posts in 2+2. You rock, MS Sunshine, for explaining cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WHY's of PokerTracker usage. I wouldn't play online poker without it.

Time for anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r tangent. Per my last post about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new Party Poker multi-table Sit and Go's, here is a solid take:

---
A) You can't use a 10 hands/blind round format because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tables won't play at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same speed. It would create unfair situations when players are moved to balance tables.

B) It offers good players a better risk/reward ratio. Look at $30+$3
tournament payouts

1 table $150 (5 to 1), $100 (3.33:1), $50 (1.67:1)
2 table $240 (8:1) $180 (6:1) $120 (4:1) $60 (2:1)
3 table $270 (9:1) $225 (7.5:1) $180 (6:1) $135 (4.5:) $90 (3:1)

(not taking in account cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 vig, but you get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 idea)

It only takes finishing 5th in a three table to make almost as much as
getting second in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sometimes crapshoot like 1 table tournaments. So
for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 smart, consistant player who makes into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 money frequently cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
ROI is much better. More chances to cash and higher risk/reward. Yes you
have to take into account cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time factor and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 average return per hour,
but I still believe cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se are more profitable for a solid player.

Sometimes I ponder moving my blog into a full-blown, uber-poker web site. I am a web developer, after all.

I'm not going to besmirch ALLIN Magazine after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y were kind enough to allow an excellent six page spread about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker blog scene, written by Hank. But cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re are plenty of folks complaining on RGP about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m....people have requested rate cards to no avail and most people haven't even received cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir first issue. For cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 record, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 magazine was riddled with typos. In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 real world, that I work in, you would be terminated with prejudice for even one, much less a dozen.

Hell, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y called PokerGrub = PokerGrab. Oh cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 humanity. Hire an editor and a REAL art director, guys!

From RGP, yesterday:

I was in a fraternity in college and every week at our chapter meeting one guy would stand up and ask when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 pool table was going to be re-felted. He did it week in and week out; it was sort of a running joke because we all knew it was never going to happen. That being said, anyone heard when
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first copy of All In Magazine is going to be delivered??

I never got my copy, eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r. Bastards.
But again, I'm not bad-mouthing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m.

Hrm, I just now found lotsa photos from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 2004 WSOP at this web site. Ignore cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 banner ads and reviews. Make sure to check out Laura Prepon (Donna - That 70's Show) who is quite striking with blonde hair.
Talking Poker

Hell, I've pontificated many times about how poker has changed over cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 years - that's one unique perspective I can give....I was toiling alone for many years before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WPT and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Moneymaker win. I simply can't stress enough how things have changed and how much opportunity cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is for a poker student with a thirst for improvement.

And cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n I found this prophethic post by Jesse May from September of 2002, right before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker explosion. This was right before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Party Poker Million (and consequent explosion of Party) and prior to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WPT - although he prolly had a whiff of it...

The decline in cash game poker around cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 country points towards cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sport of poker's evolution, not to its decline. That's why cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new Poker Million should not be looked at as a burden to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 existing poker schedule, but instead as a welcome addition.

The problem with poker today has nothing to do with a cluttered schedule. The problem with poker is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 profit model by which poker is run. It is a profit model which is absolutely outdated, constricting poker under cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 confines of "casino game", when poker is in fact a popular sport of skill, like golf. The current profit model for poker is one that sees casinos running poker tournaments because of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 money cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y will make in tournament fees and side games.

It is a profit model that forces cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best players in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sport to make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir living thru money won from ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r players in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sport, money that comes up thru cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 cash game ranks, money that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 casinos are already dipping into. It is a profit model that squeezes down.

Consider cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 profit model of professional golf. Golf courses hold
tournaments because of revenues from television and corporate sponsors, money from which cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournament purses are funded. The top ranked players are qualified to play in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournaments, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best players earn a living from prize money in tournaments that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y qualified to play in. The best players also earn money from sponsors who pay players because of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 television coverage that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir sport receives. This is a profit model that looks up for its profit, using cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 players as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 stars who are showcasing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir skill to generate cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 revenue by which cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best players are paid.

Poker is not really that far off, and to suggest that poker still is
far off is to be stuck in a rut. Under cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table cameras really do
make poker exciting to watch. The fan base is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re. The tournaments
are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re. And cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best players really are that good.

The future of professional poker is a world poker tour. The top
ranked players will be qualified to play in tournaments on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tour,
which will be shown on TV. The casinos that host cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournaments will
generate cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 purses from television and sponsorship revenue, and
players will earn money through endorsements. That is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 future of
poker, and while it has not been a to b to c, one day it will all seem
to have happened fast.

Both of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Poker Million events, while far from ideal, at least look
towards cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new profit model for poker. The first Poker Million had
250,000 pounds added in corporate sponsorship. The second Poker
Million, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Poker Million - The Classics, while having no added
money, also has no tournament fees. And because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 field is
restricted, and because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 television exposure will be maximum (six
two hour shows on Friday evenings on Sky Sports with a six player
table, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final live on Sunday prime time), and because players
are allowed to wear sponsor logos, for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first time prospective
players really have a product of value to sell to a potential sponsor.

And depending on what cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 market values of those logos is, some
players could find this tournament better value than any cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y've ever
played in.

It's really fascinating, looking back. Sadly, I wish I spent more time and energy writing about my own play. I often hear that as a criticism about this humble poker blog - write MORE about your own play, Iggy! And maybe I will down cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 road.

But for now, I'm going to mention this list of players that you *would* like to play against in B&M poker. I'm not sure I agree with his assumptions, but here it is anyway. From The Mad Genius, Mike Caro:

1. Off-duty Casino Employees
2. Talkative, Loud, Smiling Cheerful Players
3. Beautiful Women
4. Players with Tattoos
5. Players Who Drink Alcohol
6. Players who Expose Cards
7. Nail Biters
8. Poker Players under 25
9. Players Who Play out of a Rack
10. Nervous Players
11. Rich People
12. 7 Card Stud Players

I found this ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r interesting tidbit from Mr. Caro. He talks about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 older, retirement age players and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir tendency for rock-like play. He has a thing he calls cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Warren's Rule of Bluffing. Here's how it works. Assume you are heads-up on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 end with an older player who has bet into you and because of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 action and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 board you can't decide if he's bluffing or not. What you do is quickly estimate that player's age and subtract that number from 70. Whatever number you're left with, that's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 percent chance that he's bluffing. You can laugh, but he swears it works in a typical low-limit hold em game.

Here's a great idea - I've actually wanted to create a site like this for newbies a long time ago. Glad to see someone actually put it up - a daily poker freeroll tournament schedule. I don't think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir lists are comprehensive, but it's a start for you players who want to play for free and possibly win some cash....Freerolls.net. The schedule apparently updates daily and you need not register or sign in to view.

Per poker/gambling on TV, many people were bitching to high hell on RGP about how horrific cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 show, The Casino, was.

My favorite comment:

---

The first 10 minutes showed just how good it could have been. Two dotcom
millionaires with a board of non-casino experienced friends beat cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 odds
and get a license to gamble. From that it took a sharp left and turned
into a Porky's sequel.

What a joke this show was.

If you want to see a good show, check out American Casino, Fridays on
Discovery Channel. Its actually about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 running of a casino, and hasnt
been Foxified.

I thought this RGP exchange was funny, mainly because it makes fun of poker blogs. First of all, RGP blowhard Arlo Payne posted this:

Spend a day with God
Step 1
First start off with 6 grams of Cocaine up cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 nose in less than 30
seconds. Once your body starts to shake and you teeth begin to grind down
to nothing move to step 2.

Step 2
Mix .5 grams of lysergic acid diethylamide, 1 gram of phencyclidine, two
psilocybin mushrooms, 1.5 grams of mescaline, .003 grams of
dimethyltryptamine (for flavor), .05 grams of alpha-methyltryptamine into
a tall glass of vodka. Drink it all down quickly. Now log onto RGP and
start reading. Once cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 devil appears on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 screen start posting. When
you can no longer see cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 keyboard move to step 3.

Step 3
Mix 3 grams of Rohypnol with 4 grams of Gamma hydroxybutyrate take with
orange juice and head directly to bed. When you wake up if you do wake up
you will have seen God!

AIYAH! Back in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 '70's and '80's I did all of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 above (except rohypnol), but even a former "hard-core" drug user like me couldn't survive that cocktail. Besides, where would you find any *real* lysergic acid diethylamide, especially 5 gms? The crap that passes for LSD nowadays is no where near what cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "old school" purple microdots, Window Panes, and
LSD25 liquid on a sugar cube was. And for you novices, putting coke up your

Now why in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 world would anybody want to put this on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 internet? Whats cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 purpose? You probably just chased away more prospective employers for your poker radio announcing gigs. And cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 stuff you put on your poker diary blows me away.

LOL. Why does a grown man keep a little girlie diary anyway? That kills me.

The Anti-Bluff
I think most Party players are paranoid about being bluffed. The overvalue cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bluff and are willing to spend a ton of chips defending it. When I think a player is particularly defensive, I try cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 anti-bluff. I'll go all-in preflop with AA, KK or AK preflop with many players left to act. About 1/2 cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time some player will put me on mid-pocket pairs or a weak ace and will call with A-T or KQs. It's amazing how many times this play works.

Cockiness in poker happens when we think we're better than we are. A cocky player envisons his play far superior to ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r's play, and loudly whines when a so-called bad player draws out on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 River or enters a pot and wins with a marginal hand. Cockiness is manifest in bragging, berating new players and dealers, overtly reacting to wins and losses and in general, displaying bad manners at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table. I call it cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 horse's ass syndrome.

Sometimes you want action on your hands, and sometimes you want fear and respect at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table. You need to be able to determine which of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se is going to be cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 most profitable and aspire to creating cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best situation to attain those results. This can change from week to week, table to table, and even player to player. If doing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se "different " types of things are uncomfortable for you, I encourage you to step into this zone of discomfort occasionally until it is not longer uncomfortable.

I always believed that when you participate in any competative event in life, you should atleast have a fucking clue what you are doing or you are going to make a fool of yourself. Poker involves skill, cunning, math and many ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r intangables which breed competiton. We compete with each ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r by putting up our own money against each ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs and fight until you win it all or go broke. If you don't have a clue in poker, you will be embarrased and broke all in one shot. The million dollar question is why do people play poker at mid to high stakes without a hope or a prayer?

And finally, FeralBoy deserves a pimp for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker section of his blog. More poker, FeralBoy, more poker!!

Oh cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 humanity. Could this be my longest post ever? The Mocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r of All Posts as a kind reader once said? Hell, I'm not even done yet!

Let's get to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker backstabbing and such. You love this stuff, admit it. And here we have an old incident from a few years ago that some of you may not know about.

I've actually got plenty of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se type posts and will make a concerted effort to post all of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m when I return to blogging. But I digress. Here's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sordid story here - an anonymous RGP poster made public an incident between Daniel Negreanu and Men cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Master.

Here it is:

---
True story, no one can deny. The night before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 main event, a one
table satellite was about to start when Men and Daniel go into a war
of words. Daniel says Men you are a bad man, and you are a cheater.
Men yells and screams at him, denying all of it. Daniel says I don't
respect you and I know about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 shit you do. They were both about to
play cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 satellite, until Men gave up his seat!!!! In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 satellite where Erik S, John J, Allen C, Andy B, Tony Ma, and a few ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs who all saw it! Nobody else spoke. The satellite continued and Erik Seidel won cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 seat. Daniel was drinking Corona, and appeared to be drunk again. He was being aggressive with Men, and Men was backing off of him. What will come of this turmoil?????? Only time will tell?????
---

Yikes, some ugly stuff, eh? Well, here are Daniel's first two replies to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 'outing' of this incident, detailing specifics of some side shenanigans by backers.....

---

I have a pretty good idea who posted this, but that's not important
right now. The incident described, did occur but it wasn't exactly a
'war of words'. I simply stated my opinion of Men's character to him,
and let him know that I will no longer 'pretend' to like him. I
don't. I feel he is a shady individual, and I told him so. I just
wanted him to know that I no longer respected him, nor did I care to
speak to him.

I won't go into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 reasons why I believe him to be shady, this is
hardly cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 place for comments like that. I was happy to feel cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
support of many players who will remain nameless, that supported my
stand against Men. As much as I'd like to see corporate sponsorship
enter cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker arena, I don't feel it's 'right around cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 corner'.
Eventually it may be, but not in it's current state.

As I've gotten older, and more involved in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker world, I've
made a decision to try and improve cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game I love. I don't feel
comfortable, nor do I feel it is in poker's best interest to cover up
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 'problems' we have in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournament world right now. I will
however, make a concerted effort to clean up cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game as much as I
possibly can.

For some time now, I've heard, "Something must be done". Well, I'm
only one man/boy, but I will no longer sit and watch as ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs tarnish
this great game's reputation.

Daniel Negreanu





Well Dave,

You are actually cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first person who thought my comments were out
of line, but that's ok. None of what I know about Men's 'shadiness'
comes from GCA posts. Many past situations where Men has broken cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
code of poker ethics, I got from respectable people in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker world
who will remain nameless. They told me cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se things in confidence,
and I will never betray that trust. That also includes people in his
camp who have admitted to me what cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y were forced to do if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y
wanted to play for Men.

If you are looking for first hand knowledge, that I feel comfortable
sharing, this is an absolutely first hand fact. I'm curious as to how
you feel about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 following hand, and comments that followed:

In 98', after I won a bracelet and had some money, both Men and I
put Nhut Tran into a limit hold'em event, each putting up half cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
money. Down to three tables, Men had a moster stack, while Nhut only
had 4 small bets left. Men raised in 1st position, and everyone
folded to Nhut. Who cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n re-raised it to three bets. When cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bet
came back to Men, he had to call one small bet, as well as one more
small bet to get Nhut all-in...he FOLDED! That alone is a cardinal
sin by any competent player, that should have been punished, but
wasn't.

That's not all. Men cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n takes me aside to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 corner and says, "I
had to throw cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hand away to keep Nhut alive! We have big percent,
so I have to give him chip." So in ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r words, Men dumped chips to
one of his horses to keep him alive in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournament, which is
absolute collusion. It was certainly in Men's best interest
financially to have Nhut still alive in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournament.

There are a million similar stories to this one, but this is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
only one where Men actually admitted to me that he was doing wrong. I
do not feel it is right to share what I've heard, racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r what I KNOW.
If ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs are interested in putting a stop to Men's antics, I hope
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y will eventually come forward with what cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y have seen first hand.

I honestly feel sorry for some of his horses(who will remain
nameless), who are forced to soft-play Men, if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y would like to
continue to recieve financial backing or support from him. Some, not
all of his horses are given cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 following instruction:

1. Never call him.
2. Don't raise his blind.
3. In no limit, when he re-raises you, fold.
4. In no limit, you are not allowed to move in on him.

Unfortunately, I will not reveal cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 source who gave me this
information. So, I can understand your skepticism about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 validity
of it. I can tell you that I got this same information from more than
one person. Personally, considering Men's character, I believe it.
You can choose to believe what you wish, but I am comfortable with my
decision to come forward with this information.

Good gravy, this is some serious dirty laundry being aired out in public, ain't it? And you just KNEW that Men cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Master HAD to chime in at some point, didn't you? Of course you did. Enjoy:

This is my first post on RGP and I'm sorry that it has to be in my
defense.

First let me say that I totally deny Daniel's accusations. They are a
blatant outright lie.

Daniel, jealousy seems to be your only motive here. You made a bet
with me $5000.00 that you would finish higher in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 point standings
in CP. You didn't and you couldn't pay. You told me that you didn't
have cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $5000.00 and that you would pay me in Tunica.
I was a good sport about it.

Daniel at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final table, John asked you if he should let me go to
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bathroom. You told him not to. He didn't. After I went to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
bathroom anyway you to told your listeners (on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Fancast show)that
now John would have to play with a man who didn't wash his hands.
Disgusting jealousy.
Where is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 sportsmanship in this? I let cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 clock get put on me and
went.
I was a good sport about this.

When I won despite our differences, I put my hand out to shake John's.
As you said on your broadcast, he wouldn't and he didn't. Where's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
sportsmanship in this?
I was a good sport about this.

As to your allegations, I never took chips off cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table and returned
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 next day or used cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m to aid me in a race off. I however find
it suspicious that your calculating mind would find this to be a
player's advantage. Nice plan Daniel, did you try it yourself?

As to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Commerce and your rebuy cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ory, also very cunning (How many
friends that you know play in those events)but I've never even placed
in one of those events. I never took chips from any ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r player and I
didn't design cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Commerce's add on policy. Most importantly I never
abused it.

Now as far as Nuht Tran is concerned. I stopped doing business with
him in 1997. If he was a loyal, chip passing horse as you say, why is
he no longer with me? In reference to your allegation in 1998 (after I
dropped him)not only did I not put him in with you, but I never soft
played him.

Let me ask this, If I did and you saw me soft play him and you were
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table, why didn't you say something cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n. It's three
years later.
If I came up to you and said it wasn't in my best interest to knock
him out? Why didn't you say something cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n? It's three years later.

If you knew I soft played and kept him in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournament and you were
a third owner of him, by you not saying anything does that make you an
accomplice.
Doesn't that make you someone who condoned cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 action, does this make
you a cheater too.

It never happened Daniel.
This is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 worst case of outright jealousy I've ever seen. If I
hadn't won cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 events I won and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final beating your good buddy
John, none of this would be said. If you didn't lose cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bet because I
caught your friend John in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 standings none of this would be said.

You say I have rules for my horses when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y play. Let me see one come
forward with this accusation. You'll say cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y wont because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir
afraid I wont put cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m in anymore. There are plenty out cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re who used
to play for me but now don't play for me, get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m to accuse me. They
cant.

Your stories are uncorroborated and can only be sworn to by you.
You bring up things that can only be proven by your word without
substantiation.

This comes from a boy who now owes your buddy John What? Maybe
100,000? And as far as soft playing, playing on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same bankroll,
signals and collusion? Well let's just say that I wouldn't play in a
White chip game where you and John are togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r.

You may say that I have no proof and that it's not true. It's as true
as your stories Daniel. I at least admit that without proof cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se are
empty words.

Thank you to those that support me, I value this. I am a Buddhist and
believe that if I do wrong it will come back to me 10 fold. I assure
you I am not worried about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se accusations, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are not true!!

Men
I have asked someone who is better in English to help me with this
writing, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se are my words.
---

It's interesting that Men was frequently attacked by Crazy Russ - GCA for being a notorious cheat prior to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se posts. Of course, EVERYONE is a poker cheat in Crazy Russ's eyes so I didn't pay it much mind.

But anyway, allow me to close with Daniel's rebuttal to Men's post as well as John Juanda (cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 John cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are referencing at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final table) putting in his two cents.

The $5000 you won, is money that I already beat you out of at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
L.A.P.C. We had a bet on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 point standings cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re, which I won and
you paid. Jealousy had nothing to do with my reasons for coming
forward. It was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 recent Taj incident that I was informed about
that irked me to do something.

There was a break scheduled in 15 minutes. John was pounding you,
and you taking a break would allow you to cool off. Of course it
wasn't in John's best interest to allow that. It wasn't his fault
that you were drinking so much corona your bladder couldn't hold it.
The same thing occured in 96' at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Taj, and Ken Flaton refused to
allow Phil Hellmuth to take a bathroom break. They both had every
right.

He did shake your hand, I wouldn't. I know what you did with Minh
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 previous week at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final table. I kow all about Minh sending

low. The rail was cleared by a security guard cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 following day
BECAUSE of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 incident that occured with you cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re. Do you deny this

I respect cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game of poker, and would never consider doing anything
unethical like that. I can't prove you did this, but I believe you
have. Where cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is smoke, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is fire. I've heard too many chip

Again, I never mentioned your name specifically when I made those
comments. I simply stated that this occurs, I have no first hand
knowledge of this happening with you. Only what people have told me
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y've seen you and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rs doing. Whecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r or not you placed is
irrelevant. Extra chips doesn't ensure a final table, it only aids in
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 matter.

THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE LIE. You called me at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Budget Suites where I
was staying and asked if I would put up with you to put Nhut in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
$5000 limit hold'em. I agreed to do so. The EXACT situation I
described did happen. I'd be willing to take a polygraph to prove
that. As I said, I wasn't at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table, you took me aside and told me
what you were doing. Shame on you to deny this happened. At least
give us cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 typical bogus speech like, "I didn't know he was almost

Good point. At cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time I was very new to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 scene, and wasn't

Really? Then why did I confront you well before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 event even
started? I told you I don't respect you, well before you won that

That's fine. I can sleep at night. I KNOW I've never done anything
that even remotely resembles cheating at a poker table. I KNOW you
can't say cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same thing.

What I want, is to stop you from continuing your dishonest ways.
You are certainly a capable player without bending cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rules. I
believe you would succeed at poker without cheating, and I hope you
finally put an end to it once and for all. I don't think you are a
terrible person, I just think that sometimes you can't help yourself.
Bad habits are hard to quit.

I've been reading cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se posts cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last few days, felt like I should

Men Nguyen seems to have very short memory because I did shake his

because of what he did cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 night before. He was TAUNTING us, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
players on his table, especially when he beat us out of a pot. For
example, at one point, he beat Tony Ma out of a really big pot, and
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n asked to see Tony's hand, which I think was rude (Apparently, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365

key hands when we were playing headsup. Despite that, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 little voice

I've known both Men and Daniel for 5 years now. When I first met
Daniel, he was already a well known player (even though nowhere as
famous as he is now), yet he came to me (an unknown player at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
time) and introduced himself. During cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 5 years that i've known him,

Men, on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r hand, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first time I played with him

remember that, Men?

Men, I dont think anything that Daniel said here is because he is

DID to poker. I dislike what you did to poker too. Daniel wrote in

Thanks for stopping by this humble poker blog. Allow me to complete my abbreviated post from yesterday – I don’t have much in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 way of commentary today, but hopefully cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is some interesting fodder here for you.

Anyway, I’m still plugging away here, hoping to make this a decent post. Tomorrow is a work day, after all, and I wanted to give my faithful readers a chance to slack off.

So let's get right to it, shall we?

I'm quite sure you all know about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new update at Party:

[Standard disclaimer: I have no affiliation with any poker site--I just play at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m.]

Party Poker has just added a few new features, including three-table,
30-handed sit-and-gos. I decided to play in one $30+3 NLHE 3-table just
to try it out. I finished 4th despite mostly rough cards, for a $135
payout and a $102 profit. Flushed with success, I entered anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r
$30+3, got no cards and no breaks at all, and went out in 15th when I
raised all-in with ATs and got called by AJo. I decided to try one more
time and finished 7th when I semibluffed a pot-sized all-in bet with my
straight draw (76 in hand, 853 on board) and got called by an 87. I
think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 moral of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 story here is that I probably shouldn't try so
hard to run Party Poker players off a pot.

HOW THEY WORK

To register, you can eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r click on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 register button in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 main
lobby, or you can go to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournament lobby and click register. In
eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r case, you will automatically be seated just before cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournament
starts. Seat assignment appears to be random.

Currently, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only buy-ins offered are $20+2 and $30+3, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 only
games are limit, no-limit, and pot-limit hold'em.

The prize structure is fairly typical of online multis: 30-25-20-15-10.

The game starts with three tables of 10 players each. Each player
receives T1000. The blinds go up every 10 minutes at reasonable
increments. I believe it's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same schedule used in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir regular
multis, but I haven't double-checked that. There's a 5-minute break
afer cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first hour, and also after cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 second hour if it goes that long.

THE GOOD

Overall, I liked cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se little tournaments. I vastly prefer cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m to
Party's single-table SnG's where cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 blinds go up too fast (every 10
hands instead of every 10 minutes--in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 late stages when you're
short-handed, this makes a huge difference). The software has a few
problems (see below) but nothing major. Also, you get T1000 for your
$20 or $30 entry--in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 single-tables, you get only T800 unless you
play $50 or higher.

I also liked cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 structure better than Poker Stars 2-table games. It
takes about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same length of time to finish, maybe slightly longer,
without much loss of "play". The Stars 2-table games start with T1500
and seem to drag too much at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 beginning.

For NL, I found cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 blind schedule to be satisfactory. There's plenty
of play in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 middle to early-late rounds, so you don't have to go
all-in on every friggin hand, and smaller stacks have a chance. I
haven't tried cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 PL or limit tables yet, so I have no opinion on how
well cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 blind structure suits those games.

The tournament lobby screen is basically cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 scheduled
multis, and has some of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same design issues. Button movement and pot
leveling bugs that used to afflict cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 multis appear to have been fixed,
but I haven't played enough hands to be sure. The dead button rule is used.

As far as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 qualify of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 opposition, it's Party. The typical
line-up seems to be 2-3 genuine sharks, a handful of weak-tight
break-even types, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rest typical PartyFish. Standard tournament
survival strategy works best: play tight early, start attacking in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
middle rounds, and fire with all barrels at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 end. If you're a
winning player in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 single-table SnGs, you should be able to clean up
in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se three-table games, although you will have to make some
adjustments, including playing tighter in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 early rounds. The
variance is also going to be higher because only cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 top 1/6 racá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r than
top 1/3 spots pay, so you'll need more bankroll than for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
single-table SnGs.

THE BAD

It goes without saying that New Feature + Party Programmers = Bugs. And
not surprisingly, some old bugs are still with us. None appear to be
showstoppers, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are all annoying as hell and need to be fixed.

Bug #1: In cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 main lobby, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 list of games with "waiting" status
doesn't always update correctly. It lists games as "waiting for
players" that have long since started. This is not cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 old slow lobby
update problem, but some problem with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 local list in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 client not
getting cleared before it is updated from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 main server. If you click
on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 page for some ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r type of game cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n come back to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 multi
sit-and-go page, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 list will update correctly.

Bug #2: The tournament lobby screen doesn't always update eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r. For
example, at one point we were down to 7 on one table and 6 on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r,
and it was still showing 10+10 on my computer. After I left cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
tournament lobby window in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 foreground for a few seconds, it finally
updated.

The rest are old ones that I believe cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 scheduled multis also have (I
rarely play Party's scheduled multis any more):

Bug #3: At cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 start of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final table, a "Congratulations Players"
banner comes up and stays up until someone is knocked out. It
interferes with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 view of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table and should disappear when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
first hand is dealt. Better yet, get rid of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 stupid thing entirely.
We know we've made cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 final table, thank you, and since only 5 places
pay, not 10 like in most multis, it's not really a big deal to make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
final 10.

Bug #4: The server waits one hand too long to combine tables. For
example, if it's down to 6+5 and a player gets knocked out at eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r
table, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 system goes ahead and starts anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r hand if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r table
is still playing. The correct behavior would be to wait until cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r
table is finished and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n combine cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tables (UB and PS get it right.,
as do most onland TD's).

Bug #5: The option to disable cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Congratulations messages in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 chat
window doesn't work.

Bug #6: The five-minute break isn't always a full five minutes.

THE UGLY

There are some things Party could do to make cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se tournaments a little
more user-friendly. I suspect cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Multis have some of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same issues.
The software basically looks like cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Multis except that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re's no
scheduled starting time and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 number of players is limited to 30.

Ugliness #1: The blind schedule is nowhere to be found in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournament
lobby. It would be nice to have a button that pops it up in a separate
floating window. A link to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rules page would also be handy.

Ugliness #2: How hard is it to display cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 current chip counts and
position for all active players when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re are only 30 to start with?

Ugliness #3: There are only five places paid, but you have to click on
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 "More payouts" button to see cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 whole list. If cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 programmers
would remove cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 button, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y'd have enough room to list all five
payouts on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 lobby screen.

Ugliness #4: No time bank. I really don't think Stars has a patent on
this. Why ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r sites don't implement this feature is a mystery to me.
It's not that tough. I'd hate to lose out on a big pot because my ISP
or wifi router picked that moment to expel intestinal gas.


FINAL THOUGHTS

I'd rate cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se new 3-table SnGs 7 out of 10. Party needs to address cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
Bad and Ugly issues to get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rating up. I'd also like to see cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m add
$50 and $100 games in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 near future, as $30 is a little low for me. I
wouldn't mind seeing Stud, Stud H/L, and PL Omaha, and Omaha Hi/Lo eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r.

I suspect cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se little tournaments will be a big hit once players find
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m and get used to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 idea. They'll probably hurt cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 single-table
SnGs, because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 3-tables are much better structured. I know I'll be
playing more of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 3-tables and fewer of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 single-table games,
especially if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y add a $50 or $100 buy-in.

Here is an addendum to her post:
---

Just an update. About 30 seconds after I sent this to Party (I CC'ed
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 original message), I got a phone call from one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir support
people, who went through each issue point by point. We didn't agree on
everything, but he did say he would pass cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 email along to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
technical people and management.

His explanation of one item was interesting:


> Ugliness #2: How hard is it to display cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 current chip counts and
> position for all active players when cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re are only 30 to start with?

He said that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y deliberately don't do this, one reason being because
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y feel that players who are short-stacked will get discouraged and
just throw cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir chips off if cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y see that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bottom of
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 list.

I think a lot of players do this anyway. What does everyone else think?
---

Sure, some do, but I disagree with Party on this. Of course, I haven’t delved into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se tourneys yet, but most certainly will. My buddy, GMoney, finished second in one and reported that it took about two hours.

I see that some bloggers enjoy cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 bizarre and esoteric search referrals for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir respective sites. And sure, I get a few, but I thought I’d share this odd link from LowGradePanic who posted this:

Yup, I (Guinness and Poker) am cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 'etc' link. Sure, it’s wonderful to be lumped into uber-brands like Amazon and IMDB, but damn, all I could merit was an “etc?” Ouch, I guess I won't be selling IGGY pogs anytime soon.

I believe cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 strongest poker skill (really more of an innate attribute) to have is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ability to self-examine your play in a rigorous, continual, ongoing way. I also believe that specific personality types are more likely to do this effortlessly.

Felicia graciously pointed out this interesting thread at 2+2, entitled Poker and Personality. I personally feel that Dr. Dan is over-simplifying things – as much as I enjoy cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Myers-Briggs insights, it’s far too easy to generalize cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se things for a game such as poker, imho. So here are a few of my favorite snippets from cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 discussion. First up, a question and a response:

---
"A suitable personality may be necessary or very desirable for a great poker player, but it is no substitute for talent."

Could you please explain this to me? I thought having a suitable personality was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 thing considered having talent for poker. What do you define as being talented for poker?

------

An NFL cornerback needs nerves of steel, physical courage, mental toughness, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ability to perform at peak ability only moments after being humiliated in front of millions of people.

He also needs to run really, really fast.

No amount of psychological gifts can enable a slow cornerback to succeed. If you don't have talent, nothing else matters.

Same for a poker player. If you aren't smart in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 right ways you will never be one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 best. Your personality may allow you to work hard on your game, realize your full potential, and always play your best. Still you may find that your best is not as good as someone else's best. Even someone else with a decidedly less useful personality. It happens everyday in every walk of life.

Please don't let me discourage you. Poker talent can't be measured with a stopwatch. If you think you have what it takes and you want it, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n go for it. You won't know unless you try. Not trying would be to exhibit a very bad personality trait that no amount of talent can overcome.

I think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ideal poker personality is cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 flexible personality.

Someone who can easily shift from being an extrovert to being an introvert

Lotsa great stuff to consider in this discussion. For me, one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 most important rules an aspiring poker player must take to heart is: Know Thine Self.

Ok, where was I. Oh yes, I have a tip I’m loacá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 to give out, but hell, I give this all away for free anyway, what can it possibly hurt? Check
Pacific Poker for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir $10K guaranteed nightly tournaments. A paltry $15+1.50 buy-in (you could play this six times with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 free bonus) and a nice-sized overlay because not only does
Pacificr lose money each time, but cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 players are just as bad as Party. Even Chicago Phil didn’t want to say anything about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 nightly PL tournament he’s currently crushing cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re.

Wow, you know that Poker Has Arrived when it gets a nice article in The Economist.

Unlike blackjack or baccarat, poker has traditionally been a private game. Casinos have shied away from it because it tends to be less profitable: people play each ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r, not against cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 house (which tends to take a cut of each pot or an hourly fee for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 table and dealer). In London, a city full of casinos, until recently cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re was only one poker room, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game seemed somewhere between moribund and underground. But now things are picking up. In April a new venue called Gutshot, dedicated exclusively to poker, opened in Clerkenwell, a newly fashionable London district near cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 City. This is just one sign of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 game's renaissance, fuelled by a proliferation of games on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 internet and by television shows like cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Bravo Channel's “Celebrity Poker Challenge”.

What's next, what's next... Oh yeah – here’s an interesting tale that dragged on and on for days on RGP. A fellow by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 name of Paul Wolfe won a WSOP seat through PokerStars. He claimed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 PokerStars stipulation that he wear PokerStars clothing was illegal and he couldn’t be held to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 terms because he had no clue about cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 rules before having won said seat, and secondly, he never signed a damn thing. He cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n insinuated that Stars shut down his account and confiscated his funds and thus, he started “waging war” on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m in RGP.

Here is Dan Goldman, from PokerStars and his response to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 madness:

Subject: The full story about Paul Wolfe and PokerStars

From: Dan Goldman/PokerStars (anonymous@pokerstars.com)

As happens so often in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se cases, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 facts surrounding cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 situation
with Paul Wolfe have been carefully crafted to support his argument. Here
are cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 events as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y happened, in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 order in which cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y happened:

1. On April 5, Paul played in a $615+35 satellite in which he won a WSOP
package. This package included cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 $10k seat, $1k cash (out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 prize
pool) and 8 nights' accommodations (paid by PokerStars). Subsequent to
his win, Paul was sent an email from Lee Jones that included cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 terms and
conditions – here is an excerpt of what he received:

* You will be required to sign a copy of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Terms and Conditions under
which you originally won your seat. You can see it at:

http://www.pokerstars.com/MillionaireQuest2004TandC.doc

[Note that cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 T&C that we asked players to sign was IDENTICAL to what
appeared on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 site. These terms and conditions were also posted on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
web site beginning cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 day we announced cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WSOP satellites, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re was a link to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 tournament lobby.]

2. The last week in April, while at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WSOP, Rich Korbin and I
independently discussed some sponsorship opportunities with Paul
(unrelated to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 main event – this had to do with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r televised
WSOP events), but were unable to come to terms. Subsequently, Paul signed
a sponsorship agreement with Full Tilt Poker.

3. On or about May 18, Paul asked me about his WSOP ticket, and I
reminded him that he needed to sign cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 T&Cs. He told me that he wasn't
going to sign because he was now employed by Full Tilt Poker. For cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
record, Paul also mentioned that he was completely unaware of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 T&Cs.
However, since (a) cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 site and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re is a link in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
tournament lobby, (b) Lee emailed Paul a link, and (c) Paul is a regular
reader here (where cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re were numerous discussions of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 topic), I found
this hard to believe, and told him so.

4. On May 20, I reminded Paul that he needed to sign cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 T&Cs once again.
I suggested to him in very clear terms that he had agreed to this when he
played in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 satellite, and told him, if he didn't comply, that his
PokerStars account would be suspended. I suggested as an alternative that
we could un-register him, credit his PokerStars account with $10,000 in
W$s and he could buy himself into cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WSOP. (He would also have to pay
for his own hotel room, of course.)

5. Later that day, I also suggested that Full Tilt might buy out Paul’s
WSOP entry. Paul told me that he would discuss this possibility with
Howard Lederer and get back to me. At no point did I suggest that we
would confiscate funds from his account, although I did tell him that his
account would be closed if we could not resolve cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se issues.

That was cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 last I heard from Paul on this topic (and just for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 record
- Paul has my cell number, and so could have easily found me). Since he
never got back to us, our assumption was that he simply chose to not sign
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 T&Cs, and we took cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 action we told him we would take (closing his
account).

6. Subsequent to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se events, Paul subjected me to an obscenity-filled
tirade in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 hall outside cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WSOP. Among his comments, he promised
retribution, a threat he repeated during several subsequent cellphone
calls to me (specifically, he said “I will **** you and **** PokerStars at
every opportunity I get”). He cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n approached at least 3 PokerStars
players, attempting to get cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365m to breach cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir agreement with PokerStars
and sign with Full Tilt Poker. I was later told that Paul had no
authority to act on Full Tilt’s behalf on this or any ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r matter. For
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 record, we have no complaint with Full Tilt on any of this – cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y
were, as far as I know, unaware of any of this.

7. Regarding Paul’s hotel room – we are still looking into this. Paul’s
room was on our master account at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Golden Nugget; however, since he was
already staying cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365re prior to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WSOP main event, and stayed in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 same
room, it’s possible that we double-paid this (that is, that he paid on his
credit card and we also paid for cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 room on our master account).

8. Regarding Paul's account being frozen - without good cause (like
proven cases of collusion, when funds may be seized and redistributed to
ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r players), we have never confiscated player funds, and we didn't in
this case, eicá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r. Paul transferred most of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 remaining funds out of
his account on May 21, leaving a very small balance (under $50). He wrote
to PokerStars management a few days ago inquiring about this small
balance. We offered to transfer this balance to any of his friends’
accounts. There was absolutely no indication that his money will be
frozen. Interestingly enough, this was before he posted on RGP. So he knew
his balance had not been confiscated, yet he implied in his posts that it
was.

Things like this are rarely as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y appear when viewed from just one side.
Most of you have worked with PokerStars in one way or anocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r, and you
know that we don't act capriciously. PokerStars spent close to $500,000
on cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WSOP (and sent over $3 million out of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 PokerStars economy into
cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 WSOP), and in return we asked our players to wear our apparel – this
promotional opportunity is our real equity in offering WSOP satellites.
The vast majority of players had no problem with this, but Paul thought he
could get away without complying with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 terms to which he agreed, and
without accepting any of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 compromises we suggested. We took what I
believed at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time, and still believe, were reasonable and correct
actions to deal with this situation - we simply told Paul after he refused
to honor his obligations that he was not welcome to play on PokerStars.

PokerStars has hosted 5 events like this in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 past 18 months - cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
Aussie Millions, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 2003 and 2004 WSOP, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 PokerStars Caribbean
Adventure and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 2004 World Poker Tour Championship. Players who have
participated in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se events can attest to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 first-class treatment cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y
received at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365se events (parties, dinners, great PokerStars gear and
more). We have always treated our players well and fairly, and expect cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365
same in return.

Of course, I always enjoy Gary Carson’s cranky two cents:

That's cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 mindset of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 typical regular big buyin tournament player. They live in an insular world, playing with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir buddies, swapping loans, and taking care of each ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r. They think cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y are poker.

Just look at what Paul Wolfe keeps repeating -- that everyone in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker
world thinks he's an honest standup guy.

Guess what. I don't have to play in tournaments to be part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker world. And, Poker Stars is part of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 poker world also.

But, that's not Paul Wolfe's world.

And last but not least, one of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 fine lawyers of RGP posted his analysis on his website, Gambling & Law

I reach cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 conclusion that, while PokerStars was sloppy in keeping
its click-wraps sharp, Paul's actions are not legally defensible.

I just saw cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 PokerHermit’s cartoon. Too freaking funny and clever.

Damn, I'm gonna frame that. Brilliant!

Alrighty cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365n, I have TEN new poker blogs to point out. Amazing. I can barely keep up with cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 damn status quo and here we have many more quality writers joining our ranks. But because I wanna play some poker tonight, I’m going to wait to blog cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 new fellers in my next post. Ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365rwise, I’d be writing till midnight on this evil modem, which I already do far too often, anyway. As I’ve said before, this blog has become its own hobby, distinct from actually playing poker. But hey, I'm thankful and surprised that I have ANY readers. This whole poker blog scene sure has came a long, long way, hasn't it?

And finally and ONLY because cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Hermit reminded me: ;)
