havre is too isolated for me and way too windy and cold. i only pass through or stop when hunting or fishing in that part of the state.
Yeah they only have the 1-2 no limit on Friday nights at PJ's. The rest of the time it's a 1 to 5. Except for Tuesday nights its a 2 to 10 game. The rake is only 5%. That's probably how they keep the game going. The owner of the place is a real nice guy. The food is good there to.

Re: from ray to zee

if you are living around there why not start a big game once a week or two. years back we had giant games all over the hi-line. in the fall and winter the farmers all have their crop in and have bucks and time to play. the secret number is 500 buyin and you will find guys losing ten thousand sometimes or much more. dont do credit.

Ray I follow Jason Sommerville on Twitch. He gave you a plug yesterday. He said "My Ray Zee stud books came in today. I'm all pumped about that."

Time to bundle up for the winter, Ray. We're supposed to see snow in Great Falls tomorrow.

Re: from ray to zee

naw, you are on the cold side of the state. put up your wind breaks for the winter.

at least you will have more sunshine.

Re: from ray to zee

I stop into the Oasis Bar when I'm passing though Wolf Creek. What is humorous is the Baptist Church standing right next to it. They stop into the church to get the spirit then walk over to the bar to drink the spirits. LOL

Re: from ray to zee

that joint is a dive bar. once i awhile i do stop in there for some dinner when the bar in craig is closed. i like that one better more upscale and the fishermen all drink there.

they do have good fried chicken.

Re: from ray to zee

i finally split a small tourny yesterday. i went a few without cashing so it was time for me.
i played more conservatively and it worked. although this time it did.
the guys left at the end mostly were ante themselves broke players, and they did.

i lost two key races at the end and still snuck in. that is the luck part.

Ray,

Are there decent cash games in Montana, or do you just play tourneys now?

Re: from ray to zee

montana has plenty of smaller and mid level games around the state.
in my town we have a pot or no limit game 3 days a week. with regularly 800 dollar pots.

there are places with ten twenty holdem and plenty of 1,2 no limit.

Re: from ray to zee

i do travel around a lot in the northwest and mostly if i play it will be in a tournament as that is mostly the biggest games for payout.
there are only a small handful of places that play games where you can expect to win a thousand or more.

Re: from ray to zee

tightened up a little in some tournaments and did get to split a first and get a third.
the last bunch got ahead early with good chips but seems i keep running into big pairs with small boards on the flop when i am trying to pick up the pot.
after that being short stacked you just have to go for the moon at some point.

Re: from ray to zee

not too long ago i decided it was time to plow into a bunch of oil related stocks. it looks like i got in at the perfect low point which is good but i dont expect that.
my outlook is a longer time frame and not a trading range.

mostly bought small companies that have been hit hard in the downturn. a few may go bankrupt if things take too long but i dont care. as the others will rebound enough to make up for it many times over.

You might want to look back at the 80s before making this crystallized. You would have underperformed the broader market if you had had timed the bottom absolutely perfectly.

Re: from ray to zee

that is assuming you keep all your investment money in the market and never move any in or out. i put money in lots of different spots. but when i feel i see something that is extra good i plow into it.

Re: from ray to zee

I meant the advice specifically, not at deals in general. Oil/commodity stocks historically underperform the broader market over at least a decade (usually two) after a crunch even if you actually catch the bottom to the penny.

It is one of those situations where a good deal isn't even as good as an average deal.

Of course, history might not repeat. Your 249T might be good by the time the river hits.

(Your hand isn't extra good)

Re: from ray to zee

Mining stocks like Uranium. In 5-7 years, when I've made my bundle, I'll be able to buy the entire county of Estonia and sell to my good friend Putin (if he hasn't already grab it by then). The wheels are being set in motion as we speak. And I'm traveling to Europe next year to plot out the financial intricacies and set up the secret accounts. If you want in send me a PM. I can cut you in for a small percentage fee.

As Halloween night draws close all is clear for the creatures of the blackness,, to come forth and plunder. Beware all. Beware..


Just as the moon was getting dark tonight i felt bad vibes from out in the fields in front of my house.
These kind of natural events bring out the evil lurkers of the night. As my hair stood on end and my skin started to crawl I looked out the window.

I knew immediately what was about to happen as i watched the shapes of the living dead walking and stumbling towards my abode. My hair stood up on end immediately as the zombies came closer looking for me as the blood flowing through my veins was their desire.

No way was I going to stay inside and have them break in with their feeble strength and kill me while eating me alive for my blood and guts, spewing my body parts around like a bunch of pigs in a potato patch.. So outside I went to meet the attack head on. Having before killed many of these creepy putrid devils of the night, I picked my weapons for the task. First I used my glock pistol to shoot 15 of them thru the head to end the first advance.

After dispatching those vile smelly dead rotten flesh eating corpses I strung a wire in a circle around me large enough to run around and fight inside. As they tried to enter, the bumbling stumbling sinkpots would trip over the wire falling face first in the dirt and I quickly bashed their heads in with a four foot long hunk of 3 inch thick galvanized water pipe. The best part was watching my chickens run in and eat the brains from the beasts who were once my living neighbors who through no fault of their own came back to life to try to take me with them to hell and beyond..

As more and more came upon the grounds, using a small flame thrower burnt those things alive if they were alive. The stink of burning flesh smelled oh so sweet this time. A fitting end to their attack.

Soon the moon became bright and all my worries were over for the near future. A couple of beers later and I felt happy.

Wonderful story; full of pathos, pain, exquisite planning, and no little panache. John Cole would approve. Not that he will every read it.

Re: from ray to zee

we had a good discussion on a hand in the medium high stakes full ring forum
about a hand at the ----m8trix $5-$5-$10-----

gives some good insight to the thinking during a hand. and different sides were taken on what to do.

Re: from ray to zee

it will be interesting to see how an alliance with russia, france and us will work out trying to wipe out IS.
they might have gone too far and now will bring down too much power on them.
i suspect they will get diminished like the taliban and al qaida did.

Including a link to the thread would be helpful.

okay here is a link to the discussion. near the end it goes astray as most of them do but overall players moving up the ladder can get some insight into the thinking of higher stakes players.

as well as the kind of hands that come up which end up being large pots with many ways to lose it if you play it wrong.
