Re: the official lvl low content chat thread

well my 2005 tahoe was stolen out ofAria 5th floor parking garage tonight so i guess be careful parking there. Pretty lame as they stole a bunch of stuff from the inside (have dark dark tinted windows so do not think this is why they chose my car) as well as obviously screwing up my door lock and ignition, but i guess im lucky because I have onstar and they located it. They dumped it at the Hooters parking lot. Police said they usually do this to see if it is a bait car or has tracking and come back after a few days. Hopefully this is an ok bad beat story

Aww man! That sux Ty but at least you got it back. Hope the stuff inside wasnt too valuable and the overall damage minimal.

Ya not too upset about it since I am lucky they didnt disable the tracking and my car will be good fine after some small repairs that insurance will cover. Just a lil story to add to the book I suppose.

Been here 2 months schu

In terms of boring. Poker is one of the most boring lonely professions out there. Me offering to sweat is my way of giving back a little and connecting with others. I have been very blessed in my career to have been surrounded with people significantly smarter and more talented than myself that enabled me to do this for so long.

When I coach - my prefferd style is to sweat the first time we get together. I think the is the best way to see EXACTLY how a player thinks. Between hands we discuss pretty much everything that goes on during a poker game (ways of exploiting player types, game flow, positional awareness...etc) depending on the players skill level. And obviously plugging leaks.

Throwing your hat in is cool and all...but what I am offering is pretty sweet...so please tell me something about yourself - what your goals are, what you would like to get out of it, and why I should chose you.

Thanks

Walt
Haha Hell Yeah! That is a good deal, definitely +ev. And I know cuz Walt offered this deal to me a couple mos ago when i was out there, he'll def get ur mind on track. If ur a 1/2 player reading this and ur not taking advantage of this offer, u gots sicks in the heads.

Ima hit u up next time i'm out there, sir walt. Dunno when that'll be...i can't believe i caved on this but Im actually looking for a job, workin for the MAN. I'm hoping to get a job at one of the local breweries out here in CO (beer>poker). The whole job thing is gonna put a damper on me going to vegas for 2 mo. poker binges but yeah man, Ill be gettin at yeah nxt time im out there.

Re: the official lvl low content chat thread

Whats the status of online poker for American players? I keep "hearing" things, but it seems its no closer today than yesterday.

How about Southpoints' move into hosting an online poker website..they were going to have up and running "next month", that was 3 months ago!

No real promising news, it's still a waiting game unless you want to deal with smaller sites like Merge or Lock and sloooow cash outs. There have been some minor rumblings about legislation during the lame duck session but most recently there hasn't been much optimism for anything passing soon although the overwhelming opinion from all sides is it's a sure thing on some levels eventually.

Any chance you'll be at the Ceasar's buffet lunch on the 22nd? If I had to guess I'd say you'll be out of town for the holidays especially since you're asking about online games!

Hope you're doing well UTR!

Ty tiger man. I'm on break, vacation, 2 1/2 weeks off for Christmas.

Interestingly enough, showing some age here, I started playign live -mainly stud & draw type of games. Then as time evolved and the opportunity came I started playing online. Now I'm back to live play, LOL. I'd play both live & online if given a legitimate chance...

Merry Christmas to you and your faamily....

what seems to be happening is that the promise of online gaming has gone away for at least the first quarter or two of 2013 even though a player or two are ready to rock is the word was given.

There seems to be a real disconnect between those pushing for intra state online poker in nevada and those that are pushing for a federal solution... a fracturing of gaming proponent resources between those that want nevada to be the first state and those that want there to be a federal solution. One additional issue that is really bogging down this process is that there are places like Delaware, which already has legal online gaming, that is being run by the state itself... which is a real issue for private corporations that have already invested tens of millions of dollars only to have the specter of the state or federal government making those investments useless because a state may ratify state based gaming.

on a positive note, there are ever increasing online gaming licenses being applied for and approved... and more of the main players are beginning to partner up with each other to solidify their positions. In addition, Zynga has now applied for a license to of cash based online gaming.

One thing I don't like personally is that many see this entire issue as being an overall strategy to offer legalized casino gaming online and NOT a stand alone online poker issue. Detractors continually talk about this being the "Slippery Slope" of casino's having a gaming link directly into every house hold within the USA.

I am contemplating moving to mexico or costa rica myself to check out living there part of the year so I can play online. we'll see, a lot has to happen before I do that, and perhaps if we are lucky, something might happen intrastate in Nevada as a temporary fix until federal legislation can be enacted.

This would be epic. Only reason I don't go there more is how inconvenient it is to get food from there mid session.

Re: the official lvl low content chat thread

I just wanted to come in here and post that I met up with squid and he graciously sweated me while I played 1,2. First off awesome guy and a great poker mind to discuss hands with. If anybody else gets the chance to take him upon his offer I would snap do it. Even you wanna just pay for a coach I think he would guarantee improve anybody playing 1,2 or 2,5 for that matter. Anyways I'm grinding atm so that it. Thanks again squid
