how to selectively show winning hands at PokerStars

Not sure if it;s a dumb question, but have no idea were to post it so please help if you can:

At PokerStars, I have "Don't Show Winning Hand" option turned on in GUI Options.

Sometimes, it is really helpful to show a winning hand to opponents right after it had been played.

Going to GUI Options and switching the option in question is very slow, so I don't manage to really show hand before it goes off the table.

The question is: is there any way to speed up the process? Any hotkeys or tricks?

Please advise.

Sincerely,

Dmitry

There's not really a way to speed it up. You either have the option every hand or not. Personally I don't think you should ever show, but that's just me.

Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread ****

I was involved in a verbal banter as many people could say they have been with another player on full tilt poker, and the occasional "f bombs" were dropped here and there to one another but then the other player made remarks such as "hope your family dies in a car crash" .... If I reported this to FTP what is the most that would happen ? Would they just ban his chat for ever or anything more ?

They will most likely just ban his chat unless he's making direct and specific comments that threaten to do you physical harm. Shoot them an email and ask them.

PT have announced they'll issue PT3 for Mac after the windows versions (HE, Omaha and Stud) are finalized and stabilized enough. Figure a fall release. Meantime Intel-based Macs can run it in windows (one purchase is good for two computers, so you wouldn't need a second license).

1. Standard straightforward play. By the book.

2. A very small bet relative to the pot or an OOP flop bet into the pre-flop raiser.

Responding to a thread before reading all the comments.

Straightforward basic poker, betting your good hands, checking and/or calling with ones you think might be good but might not, folding ones you think aren't good. At least that is how I think of it - somewhat level one thinking involved perhaps.

2, What is a donk bet?
There are (at least?) two meanings to this - either a bet out-of-tempo: For instance player A raises, player B just calls from the blinds, postflop player B leads out with a bet - player B's bet is a 'donk bet'. This is the meaning used in fixed limit. However, in no limit 'donk bet' is often used as a term for a minimum bet (minbet). See this thread for some discussion:
http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...light=donk+bet
See also the Beginners forum FAQ http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/an....php?f=32&a=74 item 15, under 'D'

See http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/35/micro-stakes-limit/microstakes-limit-not-nl-guidelines-faq-v1-0-a-15/ just above half way down, a section on 'What is a "Grunch"/"Grunching"?'

Use the little symbol with the " and the + just to the right of the 'quote' button at the bottom right of the post(s) you wish to multiple quote. Click on each of those and they should turn red. On the last message of the group click the 'quote' button as normal and *all* the messages you chose should show up in the reply edit box. See: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...multiple+quote

As always if anyone disagrees with the above do wade in and correct me.

At the bottom of the bonus page itself: http://www.twoplustwo.com/bonus/ is a 'How it works' section. Also there is an entire forum devoted to questions about the 2+2 bonuses/bonii: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/91/two-plus-two-bonus-program/

I don't think they were "specific and direct" but he said things as I mentioned before and like "mommy gonna die" "hope the funeral goes shtty" etc. I didn't send an email about it because it had me using the f-bombs and such and calling him a scumbag for saying things, although others at the table who witnessed his "over the line statements" might have , but what do you mean unless ? They can do more than ban someone's chat ? explain please.

Not sure what you mean. This isn't blackjack.

If you're talking about database software and HUDs like PokerTracker and Holdem Manager, then yes, a lot of regulars use those at all levels.

All they're ever going to do is ban people's chat if someone complains. Including yours from the sound of it...

BTW, this is page 2 for me, not 14. You can change the number of posts per page in your options.

My last repsonse was the answer I was trying to get... basically will they just see this guy as a prick and ban his chat or is there much more they will actually do other than ban his chat/access to the site

Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread ****

With the stars vip program, say I'm gold star this month and buy and clear the bonus. Then next month I make platinum and buy and clear that bonus too. (both bonuses cleared in the same month they were bought). Now the month after I drop back down to gold star. Can I buy that bonus again and clear it? Is there a limit of bonuses you can buy from the store?

2) Why do players chose one over the other as a preference?

3) Which is more popular and why?

4) What types of skills is necessary to play both well?

5) Which is more suited to beginners?
