Rb is closer to 0 than 5 % for me but z200 running like 20/24hrs z500 like 8-16hrs(?)per day. Volume on reg tbls did not change much from 200-600. Only z500 decreased significantly imo.
No info from nlhe part

Re: ***High Stakes PLO BBV Thread***

guy calls big bets on the flop and turn against my aces, flush comes on the river I check, he turns over bottom 2p and tells me how I missed a bet he would have folded to a river shove. I tell him to stop talking to me and attempt to kill him with my eyes.

Re: ***High Stakes PLO BBV Thread***

Haven't been around online for a while as been fortunate enough to set up and grow a very successful business while making some excellent money stock trading (also play some profitable local home games, but only playing live poker now).

Had a little dabble online today (for old time sake) and the games were surprisingly quiet all around... Has it been like this for long? I used to love the buzz on this forum back in the day.

Bc I lost 60bb vs him? Good judging skills. And there is nowhere written in books, that always the stronger, better player wins, thats why the ecosystem is working. I would rather loose my stack to a rec, than a reg who is more likely to cash that money out.

so **** you.

This comment of yours is nothing more than enviousness.

Im just kidding highest i ever played was 10/20 . It is just funny that your bumhunting didnt work out. Maybe you should retire from only playing high when your seating Script turns on.

Beat: I was watching the PLO University opening concepts video today.

Brag: Whilst I was watching it my friend says 'his ***king face, he looks like Frank Grimes from Spain' (referring to JNandez) - which might be one of the funniest things I've heard in a long, long time.

Variance: I realise this joke only makes sense if you know what Jnandez looks like or what Frank Grimes (in the Simpsons) looks like.

Hi, from what stakes do you guys think the concepts in this course would become useful or are they universal in your opinion? I'm guessing that you don't rate the course, so what would you guys recommend for someone trying to improve or is it just playing more hands? RIO or something I guess? I play microstakes PLO but can afford the course and have been debating whether it would be a waste for someone playing pretty low stakes.

Thanks in advance

Haha wow






It seemed like the action during WSOP was up all around for PLO. More games at more casinos to play and a bunch of tables running I decided to keep my place in Vegas for the rest of the year, I love this place a bit much.

Congrats what type of business is it??

The action online these days is much more spread out amongst various types of platforms. It's fascinating to me how things are evolving. With Party/888 making a push for relevancy again and RIO poker in the works at some point, I'm very interested to see how the PLO cash game ecosystem turns out.

I doubt it gets off the ground any time soon. As someone who is a software developer timelines are always pushed forward because things don't always work out the way the non-techs want it to.

That being said, I think if RIO does get off the ground, it's going to need a lot of financial backing to have any relevance otherwise it will be mostly 2p2'ers playing each other for rakeback.

This.

People tend to think that 'ah rich recreationals don't care about stuff' but it's the total opposite and they'll be looking for value for money on their hobby. I think it's fair to assume that they don't mind about being dogs in the game so much as they've likely got used to losing etc but they definitely care that a company isn't pumping them unfairly for high rake in order to enjoy that hobby.

Are you renting your place? Mind me asking how much you are paying per month? Considering getting a place, dunno if I wanna rent or buy.
