Unfortunately, because I preferred limit and was better at limit than nl, until most of the country starts seeing red chip limit games they will not take over. 2-4, 3-6 and 4-8 are really bingo poker. If we start seeing many more 10-20+ or maybe 8-16+, limit won't take over. Even then we need to keep the white chip games also for those that prefer bingo.

I will keep hoping to see this happen. But I won't be holding my breath.

Re: The CHIPSTACK Thread

I love ppl who call low stake LHE 'bingo.' Getting 6:1 on your money regularly is great. So what if you get sucked out on bec you can't 'protect your hand?' There's another monster pot dealt in 1 minute when the game's good and it's almost always good.

This isn't a strategy forum but a lot of peoples' misconceptions about small stakes LHE comes from their misconceptions about small stakes NL.

Good point. Games where everyone is playing random garbage hands are the hardest to beat.

Re: Live Casino Poker 2017 Low-Content/Chat Thread

Low stakes limit games aren't at all hard to beat - specially if you ignore the rake/jackpot drop - but they are incredibly boring. Yeah you get to play more hands but there's never a decision that isn't completely mechanical. I'd find it more fun to program a robot to play 4/8 than to play it myself.

Re: Live Casino Poker 2017 Low-Content/Chat Thread

I get the feeling that there's something significant missing from this OP...

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/27...asino-1657963/

...like maybe along the lines of, "in a foreign country that does not have an extradition treaty with the United States."

Is that Boris Becker I see Across The Table?

Yes it was! At The Vic Casino, London, playing £1/£3! I even managed to win a hand against him after flopping a straight. The guy was a true gent, didn't step out of line or go crazy and respected both all players and the money at the table throughout... and was clearly perturbed losing about £500 while holding 4 2 vs 4 A on a X 4 4 2 A board.

100% respect for Boris!

The purpose of such a rule is to prevent collusion, not to give you free information (or even paid for information). Not saying it's not a rule...just keep that in mind.

As we've established, there are many different viewpoints on this. Multiple people far more knowledgeable than I (respects pros) told me what I originally posted. IMO, and this is the last I'll say on this, all cards should be tabled at showdown automatically to speed up the game and prevent any collision.

Re: Twin River Casino (Lincoln, RI)

Back in the poker boom almost every room had the IWTSTH rule but maybe because it was so abused and asked for information reasons rather than anti collusion reasons, most have not allowed it for a long time. I personally am glad that TR has it because I know lots of 2/5 players who share a bankroll

Foxwoods did away with IWTSTH for like 6 years then brought it back 2 years ago.

Well then! (They are wrong too, and you should probably stop listening to them.)

Re: Live Casino Poker 2017 Low-Content/Chat Thread

Thank you for providing a detailed and nuanced explanation of the errors of my ways. I'll definitely change all my viewpoints thanks for a random condescending post from a person I don't know who provided 0 evidence.

I have not so famously dubbed this the 'Once a month rule' since if you do it more than once a month you will probably create a target on yourself. Same as players who insist on seeing all the OOP holdings before they show the winning hand (or are now allowed to muck without showing), you don't really want to create any unnecessary angst at the table.

Being mostly in reg infested rooms it really should be no surprise as to what I might turn over but there are still some cases when I really don't want another reg to know how 'bad' I was chasing .. unless I actually hit. GL

Which post out of the 8 pages has the definitive reason for the rule? thanks a lot.

From what I've seen glancing over there are 2 given reasons. One seems to amount to, "just because"( all turned over to speed up the game) and the other reason is to prevent collusion.

What sort of idiots would be caught colluding by IWTSTH?
