I don't know I think he has some right to be jealous. Anyone can play on WPN but not everyone can play on Stars.

As far as the WPN cash games go I'm not sure why either of you are commenting on those games. Lotuspod never plays and I've never seen any Fins play either accept for Depsmz and he only plays hu and short stacks so obv not you. WPN cash games are softer of course but not by much. At this point most of the good stars regs are at least playing some on WPN.

Btw 2 questions that I've always wondered. Who the **** is Monikrazy? and who the **** is NGFTW? Do either of these guys actually play online and if so where?

I've had the skill game argument used against me both ways to limit where I can play and therefore my potential value from o8, first on RoW sites and then the opposite way on Merge later on for the whole proverbial insult to injury thing.

Think about it for a lil bit and then try to honestly tell the rest of us here that it wouldn't tilt the hell out of anyone lol. I've got a ton of respect for the others it's happened to because of how badly it sucks, and you never really know which country is next. I just hope as few of you get caught up in this whole mess as possible, it can really kill off the game except for maybe some home games and also maybe a few tables/events in the largest of casinos.

Amok if you'd like, we could bet at least 10k or more each to see if I could run profitably on stars for 6 months or so...at reasonable stakes of course and it can even be the escrow of your choice. Mexico or Costa Rica seems nice for the winter anyway and a 180-day visa isn't too hard to get from what I've heard from others If you're as sure as you usually sound, you should really be giving me 2:1 or 3:1 odds or more for the trouble and the potential easy money for you. It would be a fun bet tbh, and some wsop money next year for one of us.

Re: Scoop Schedule released

Me saying I was jealous of being able to play scoop was a pretty big indication that I don't play online currently, log a pretty decent chunk of live games though

Not 100% but i think ng built ppt

Re: Scoop Schedule released

God those PLO8 fields really were all great.
One of the most ****ing brutal bubbles of my life in the 1k PLO8 though . I had 13 stacks when 46 left and 42 paid, and managed to lose every all in flip and not cash .

Still some good stuff to come though, hopefully it goes better.

Re: Scoop Schedule released

Don't forget Charlie winning the PLO8. Even though he's awful at mixed, and he admittedly couldn't even follow the ****ing pre-flop action when HU lol.

Run profitably i.e. win? Win at poker? On pokerstars? Sounds like an insanely hard challenge.

I don't even know what to say to all this. Why do you think I'd believe someone borderline decent couldn't play slightly winning poker? Get your **** together.

That might make sense, except for all of your bs to me and to just pretty much all the players on the sites I can play on in general. You're now acting like you've played there when you don't even know any of the regs yet hardly.

You likely played maybe a few hundred hands (if any) and think you have a well-informed opinion on the whole site and all the others like it, which wouldn't be bad even but you seem to make it a point to call it out at every chance...even in this scoop thread earlier idk why even still. Others prolly thinking the same too tbh.

Like juicy said, many are the same people you play on stars...every time you bring it up you're basically calling most of the best players on here soft. Which I (and them too probably) don't really mind since the extra traffic is welcome, but enough is enough man. Hell, I even gave you credit when you posted something that was actually useful.

Instead of saying add in a reasonable lower limit for profit for the challenge and then backing up your words with some money in a fun bet, you decide to go full troll yet again lol. I know quite a few o8 regs who stay well away from this place because of elitist troll crap like yours lately. Why Niss lets it go on is beyond me.

All in all, it's kinda funny you're the one telling me to get my **** together. I won't state the obvious though. GL lol

Cashed all three O8 events today . And made Day 2 in the 2 bigger ones. Let's go tomorrow.

(Also, lotus just stop. None of that **** was close/necessary or was ever going to happen.)

Re: Scoop Schedule released

Lotus, I have played only roughly 5k hands there, but it's easily enough to get a feel of the field. I agree it's possible that I just didn't happen to play against all the strong players.

Again, I have no idea why you think I think you can't beat a soft game. I am also not willing to bet on something I can't have influence on.

Re: Scoop Schedule released

You're more than welcome to come play me at the husngs anytime then, unless playing that much on wpn is beneath you or something. I'd really like to see this superior strategy in action tbh.

Man I don't think you can blame him. This guy amok is confrontational at every step as far as I can see

I'm sure you have better things to do and have little interest in a 0.1/0.25 thread but maybe you could do us a favor and assess the content?

FWIW I have been railing parts of the H events and some of your lines and the lines of the maniacs. I saw you lead in similar spots to the one I am describing more than once - like the play that bust you in the $1K PLO8. I think you had A28Q with NFD on flop 68K with 2 of your suit. You got raised by A26J off suit and the guy hit trips no low. I agree with how you played the hand (math helps a lot) but can you maybe explain to amok that it is OK and + EV/GTO to lead a flop with the best hand sometimes?

Sorry if de-rail and GL in day 2, I will follow you on FT if you get there

I have no recollection of such hand. Yes I do think it's OK to lead sometimes.

Yeah it's really soft. Hopefully you know this guy at least, I mean I'm not sure what more I can do to prove my point that it's pretty much the same lately.

He's one of the few who actually kept his same sn also.

Thought he was registering for NLHE, accidentally registers for PLO8, binks it

Does this and the players hitting the big payouts thus far depress anybody else?

I wasn't talking to you but as you rattled my cage again....

Your pokerstars screen name is plo8, right?

http://officialpokerrankings.com/pok...0DA29.html?t=2

If those are your results you definitely should not be giving anybody advice on how to play poker
