I don't know, a user I've never seen before kept quoting your posts and calling you a bad word. Like 12+ times.

At least they can't accuse of preferential treatment, given you've been banned and infracted plenty in your 6 months here.

Thanks. Yup, no preferential treatment indeed!! PhaoN also mentioned this user's odd behaviour to me. I think I know who this is and why he's upset..no one likes losing their roll after all

Maybe we should add something like ...

Thou shalt not create LC "containment" threads

Something like that.

Re: Rules, FAQ and Best Of Threads (READ BEFORE POSTING) [Don't troll in strat threads.]

Yeah it seems like in general use of the existing LC threads could be more strongly encouraged.

Anyway, came here to say that some kind of official challenges thread could be helpful. I don't think it's esp. necessary since mods can lock or delete threads that go nowhere and afaik this isn't an every day occurrence. But if one or more posters w/ a decent number of posts and a good reputation wanted to make themselves available for escrow and arbitration, we could have a running thread where challenges have to be placed, authorized and organized. Challenges placed outside the thread could just be moved there and everyone would get used to the process pretty quick.

Again, just throwing it out there. I don't care enough either way to try to promote or defend the idea.

Thanks for the idea, I've considered a challenge containment thread.

Maybe others can weigh in on that idea. It might get confusing (I'm not particularly happy on how the free coaching thread looks, whereas the study group thread looks fine to me).

Re: Rules, FAQ and Best Of Threads (READ BEFORE POSTING) [Don't troll in strat threads.]

I really like ohly's point, but don't think we need any special "challenge containment thread".

Since these HU4ROLLZ recently seem to turn into a pissing contest instead of a new challenge, how about adding a rule that both participants must be respected forum members with at least some 2000+ (or even 3500+) posts ?

And if someone with less of a reputation to lose absolutely wants to do it anyways, please at least do it in the monthly LC thread and don't spam the Regs thread with it.

Re: Rules, FAQ and Best Of Threads (READ BEFORE POSTING) [Don't troll in strat threads.]

I'm not as keen on the idea of requiring minimum posts to make a challenge thread. I think it would be too restrictive to lower post count users or lurkers who may have valid challenges. After all, challenge quality is not proportional to post count, or at least there are too many potential exceptions for me to feel good about that rule.

That's my first reaction at least.

I don't think there should be a requirement to start a challenge thread. I just think that if a challenge looks like it's not going to happen it should be locked until it is going to happen instead of having a bunch of people bickering back and forth for a few weeks and no HU4ROLLZ going down (like most of the challenge threads).

They have a husng series by Bones, he's supposed to be a solid coach in general, but I don't believe he's a heads up specialist.

Check that out, and check out the good hu cash material that they have to sharpen some of your deeper husng stacked play.

A few thoughts on reread:

- The first portion talks about facing people that never call a 3bet. I'm not sure I've ever faced such a villain, certainly not often. What he says makes sense in the context he talks about (why 3bet 98s if nobody ever calls your 3bets and only 4bets all in to which you would fold? You'd rather 3bet 92o instead) but it takes 4 paragraphs of that to say it + how many opponents only 4bet or fold vs a 3bet?

- I disagree with part of the AJs thing, AJs dominates a lot of hands that call a 3bet and performs a lot better (even with the whole "if we flop Ax we're face up in a lot of villain's eyes/way of thinking" thing) compared to Q2s. Though I think his "4b or fold" stuff is correct, when we get more relevant with the 3bet call, it's less consistent to me.

- The "A quick note" part in the middle was easily the best paragraph up to that point and something I remember learning from Skates back in the day that really was one of those "aha, that should be so obvious and now it is, thank you!" moments. Good paragraph.

- Depolarizing makes sense, though I like to phrase it to students as "Wide value range" when they flat wide, because it's not KJ that they are flatting, it's A2 (as ronin says), or Q7s, or K4s. His paragraph is a little too nitty to paint a realistic picture I think, it looks more cash than husng perhaps. You consistently see people calling your 3bets very wide to where you need to be 3betting KT or K9 for value to dominate a lot of weaker stuff that calls (especially weaker broadway rag suited hands that are often overplayed by fish). His points are correct, I just think the execution of the examples is a bit on the lower side here.

- I think the 3bet VPIP comparison between value 3bet and polar 3bet is a bit misleading. If a guy is opening wide and calling 3bets wide, you'd 3bet for value wide but you also are probably calling some hands that play well postflop/can flop well. There's going to be more variables that impact your calling range, but the point is you shouldn't really be calling too many more hands vs the tighter nittier guy than the looser opponent (again almost too general here, both in my statement and the article).

- 90 to 50% seems a bit extreme vs a wide 3bettor (for playing % hands on button).

- I think the folding statement is wrong (that folding is better than limping) but his overall statement of "look to raise, there's ways to exploit a lot of people" is good.

Conclusion:

Long winded and some of it not terribly relevant to husng players, but overall a solid article. My words may sound harsh, but bottom line this is better than a lot of the stuff already in the sticky, so it would be a solid addition.

Jedi's post is pretty funny "Great post but I dont like info accessible here TBH. I mean most regs at my level get a majority of this but it still is something I prefer people find out for themselves."

it's not a big deal obviously, i could care less (so yes i do care) but a mods' priority should be being consistent and mers clearly isnt
whatever, as you said: no big deal

Sorry for some reason I actually just didn't see it, mods aren't allowed to have people on ignore so officially that's NOT why I missed RBJ's post. I do try to be fair as evidenced by me having coffee's back (I think?) recently in a forum issue against ITRIED.

Always feel free to use report post button.

Also I would like to officially go on record as upset that Barbra Streisand probably doesn't like me, as I have the sort of personality who needs to be liked and respected by everybody and if you don't happen to care for me then WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU DON'T YOU KNOW WHO I AM?
