    Hey fellas, I use to play Pokerstars but cant deposit anymore. I just downloaded Full Tilt and would like someone to transfer me funds and I will play them through Paypal with 10% on top. I just wanna test the site Full tilt and would only want a 10 Dollar transfer, meaning i send you 11 through paypal. Would someone do that for me? My s/n on Full Tilt is ILLAN84

    Let me know if someone can do this for me. Thanks!

    where have u been coffeerox??? come back to GD again

    ever since I quit Melty Blood, all I really had to look forward to was VF5, GGXX AC and Hokuto no Ken. When I came back a little while ago after getting HnK, found out the game radically changed on console, GGXX AC was nowhere to be found, and nobody plays VF5, that thread is dead man (as are the other VF sites).

    After the whole GD fiasco I just quit posting in GD about any topic not related to videogame strategy. It's pretty obvious (and most of us know it) what kind of community we're in and it's not what I'm about. There are a few quality posters here but the immaturity and idiocy dwarfs that.

    I need a little advice for buying some new cards, Im probably going to get a couple of sets, but want one set specifically for learning some nice tricks + shuffles. Whats a good brand to go for?

    Im trying to get down the boomerang trick, but my current cards suck, I can hardly even bridge shuffle with them half the time.
    I have a lot of beliefs, and I live by none of them.

    So is this thread strictly poker only, can we discuss random card tricks/shuffles in here? Anyone else got interest in that?

    This is a strictly poker thread, but I have fun doing different cuts. Used to know a lot back in the day, not much anymore.

    Ive only really just gotten back into poker after probably almost a year or so out. Online I play on Paradise Poker (SportingOdds), Ive mostly just messed about entering the cash for placement multi tourney free rolls. I had $40 in my account yesterday and decided to throwdown 2 games in 2player tables and lost both, second one should have been mine as I had a good lead at one stage. Tables got turned when I lost to ace high straight, I had 2 pair A+K.

    But Im still fairly new to poker, If Im going to play for money, are 2player tables a good idea for me at the moment? I never really noticed until those games started, but 2 player games are very different to what Im actually used to! Seemed like a bit of a harsh enviroment in comparison.

    You mean heads up games? They are a lot faster and you pretty much play any good hand dealt to you instead of what you're used to normally. I tried playing a short handed table after a lot of people left and found that those two weaker players ended up cleaning me out just because the strategies of dealing w/ fewer players versus a full table is a lot different.
    ---

    So guys do you think this was a poor lack in judgement? I think that what the other guy did was a poor all-in, and I called because I had good odds. I'm thinking that the call was a very bad idea, i felt it before hand, yet I called anyways.

    Lately tonight is one of those bad beat nights. People are getting very lucky on the turn/river and are the kind of players that have no business being in the pot with the hands they have, yet the win due to sheer luck itself. Like for example a few times in one of my last hands, this guy kept getting the same hand as I have, yet, he was playing the board. He had two pair ON THE BOARD (10,10,7,7,J kicker) had absolute garbage in his hand (J,4) while I had (6,6) so my two pair got beat by the board, all because I held a pair in my hand. This happened about three times and they cleaned me out. I played the cards and the chips as best as I could, but nothing could have stopped that just short of folding to these noobs, which wasn't logical considering what's on the board.

    It's hard to analyze a play money hand, because there's no thought process at all from most of the players(which is different from micro limit money games in that they have a thought process, it's just a really shitty one) but one general rule in a shorthanded holdem game, limit or NL really, you should never be first in the pot without raising. Open limping is terrible shorthanded, and there is no reason you should really ever do it. After limping no way I'm calling a 10x with KTo, their hand ranges are quite ahead of you, you have a reverse implied odds hand, and you're not very deep after that kind of raise. On the flop its a fold. Now this is all based on me looking at it as a real money hand, as a playmoney hand, preflop I say K hi is the nuts and on the flop top pair is the nuts even more, arrrr in.

    The WSOP just started yesterday. Unfortunatly, they should of stick with the COPAG cards:

    And if you want to know what the cards look like:

    Yeah, the design looks interesting. But they don't really look too good for poker. Especially for Omaha. And I think Bicycle/KEM should of also use the 4 color design for those cards as well.

    Also, how will these cards work with 2-7 Triple Draw?

    What should you expect from shrooming?

    Guys I came back from my local casino (Bicycle) and on the way back I was thinking of what phil ivey said, "At the end of the day, I always think to myself did I play well? Or did I get the cards?".

    Well, looking back at the hands I won, were: A-10 suited, 2-2, A-A, Q-Q, J-J, and A-10.

    My table (100 NL, 2-3$ blinds) was fairly conservative. A few amateurs and a few sharks I recognized right away.

    But back to the original question. Is it really possible to win big pots without spectacular hands? Even if you get the pots that you bluff at it, its not really all that much.

    Now, if you consider the pot action that goes around in K-K vs A-A, where both players are willing to put all their money on the line. The potential gain/loss is huge.

    I did one buy-in at that table and sat there for about 3 hours and made 748 dollars (848 but 100 minus the buy-in). But the majority of it came from the big whale pots. Most pots that I grinded with the medium strength cards only yielded 20~50 bucks.

    unspectacular hands crack spectacular hands. And not a lot of people are able to fold their AAs or KKs on dry boards.

    Did u buy in for the max with $100 at 2/3? That seems a little small for a buyin.

    I guess it depends on what you mean by good hands and big pots. In standard buyin 100bb deep at least, you aren't going to win many big pots with 1 pair hands unless a lot of money got in preflop, most of the time you'll need sets, straights, or flushes to bring in a nice pot. So I guess if you mean preflop, then no you don't need to wait for premiums, but to win a big pot you will need a strong hand usually. That's all assuming a 100 bb buyin though, in this 2/3 100 bi travesty you can't take a lot of flops you're going to need a legitimate starting hand.
