Bovada Bodog Ignition are all the same. I haven't noticed games getting tougher. Definitely more bot infested but as I said most of the bots are pretty bad.

Re: 2017! NC/LC THREAD

Speaking of bots being terrible, I got completed rekt yesterday by a couple of bots.

I'm in 3 seat; bot in 4; bot in 6. I strongly suspect they're bots since they're making all snap decision and taking so many weird lines.

Bot4 has a vpip of 70 and pfr of 50. Crazy thing is it had a fold to cbet of 50%! it would 3b and 4b pre, then donk check fold on the flop. Insane.

Bot6 has a vpip of 80 and pfr of 60. This one had an aggression of a million, and would cap pre and barrel to river with 28o, 26o.

This is over 600+ hands. And yet I was down over 6K.

You should contact support regarding that nut/nut hand that the software cheated you out of. I suspect they will reimburse you at least your own contribution to the pot if you ask nicely. They have done so in the past in situations where a software crash has caused a player to fold literal nut hands.

Re: 2017! NC/LC THREAD

i don't get the turn raise either, but w/e. i've lost at least a few thousand from disconnections using a mac (bovada's mac software sucks). i'm guessing this happened in the morning time? the 1 experience i had playing into the morning, the software was almost unusable on ignition.

Re: 2017! NC/LC THREAD

They insist it was my connection, not theirs. =\ No compensation. I'll look into getting a backup connection, or keep my phone on hand and see if I can insta-tether the times my connections dies. Still a pain.

Turn raise is possibly bad, but my read is villains were bad.

backup internet connection is what - 50, 70 a month? prob worth it in EV if you're constantly grinding 30 and it saves you even one or two big pots a year

so what? if you know the blind is taking 2 to the face, then yeah, it works out and is an easy cap when dude 3bets. i try not to push people out if they're the ones making me money in the pot.

Re: 2017! NC/LC THREAD

Fun hand

CO raise, I 3b AJ in the SB, BB 4bs, all call

Flop AA5r
I check, BB bets, CO folds, I flat, intending to xr turn.

Turn 6
I check, BB times down and checks

River 9
I check again, He instashows 78s, wins the pot, then sits out.

(i.e. if I had bet at any time, his hand would have been mucked)

"$375/month for a 24 hour GTO Text Hotline to get in touch with me personally when you need immediate advice" ...seems like a steal, emphasis on steal.


I always thought the GTO Club was a figure of speech lol. I must have missed a few podcasts.

I would just like to meekly note that I've been saying these things for a full decade. The one thing I'll add now is that the insufferability and scumminess is easily extrapolated to society at large, it's hardly poker-specific. I mean, Vic, I lurk the politics forum and see your posts, you accurately have stated that nearly every Republican holds these traits, and Republicans/conservatives are comprised of roughly 50% of the American adult populace, so ...

Re: 2017! NC/LC THREAD

I'm driving home, going 38 in a 35 on a one-lane road (going both ways). Car starts tailgating me. Hard. I'm like, wtf, and I do that move where I hit the brakes quickly to indicate "hey, stop tailgating me". This lady proceeds to hit the gas and attempt to pass me, which is ultra-dangerous on this narrow and heavily wooded one-lane road. If somebody else turns on to the street at this time it's a guaranteed, unavoidable accident. Maybe this means I should just let her go, but I don't know, I'm pretty tired of horrible people abusing non-horrible people and always getting away with it, so I slam on the gas and don't let her pass. For a good 3-4 seconds we're traveling side-by-side, with this lady on the wrong side of the street. This whole time the person is making all these gestures at me, so as I turn onto my street I flip her off. Flipping the bird isn't really my style, but I didn't have the time to roll my windows down.

38 in a 35. A super-standard rate of speed. It's not like I was going 25. I did absolutely nothing wrong, and here comes this jackass putting everybody at danger.

It is not poker players. It is people. Poker players are not the worst; humans are the worst.

What you ended up doing was a 1000x more dangerous and wrong than what she was doing.

I already implicitly admitted that what I did was dangerous. "1000x" is obviously ridiculously absurd; she's the one in the wrong lane, dog.

To say that what I did was "1000x"(lol) more WRONG???? Oh my god, **** you. I don't have anything else to say to that claim other than **** you.

At some point we have to stand up for ourselves. If not, we allow sociopaths and other assorted awful humans to walk all over decent humans and get off scot-free. I mean, if we keep letting them get away with it we might even someday wind up with a, I don't know, just spitballing here, but perhaps a pathologically narcissistic, deeply misogynistic, intellectually devoid gameshow host as our President.
