It's a work in progress. Only had about 2 hours to practice it over the past two weeks as real life important **** has taken over.

Oh good morning.

Re: 2017 ustakes NC, where the steaks are wafer thin (Low Content Thread)

After playing several thousand hands of PLO8 I have decided that high-variance games are not fun and I wanna go back to playing BigO/FLO8 and literally nothing else.

Maybe, but small stakes 08 is the easiest form of poker that I know of.

Some times hi stakes o8 is even easier. On ignition the 30-60 is significantly softer than 5-10 and 10-20

Lol, as I type this I just bet river and got called on A234 board and axoooed with the pair of 2s and live 6

I'd load up a pile on Ignition, that seems to be the thing to do, except they've got blackjack and I'm a sick ****.

Re: 2017 ustakes NC, where the steaks are wafer thin (Low Content Thread)

It almost worked! Here's the latest lol: Lately when I've felt the urge I've announced to the table '$5K if you catch me playing BJ today!'

It's gotten to be a running joke amongst the regs. 'Is the award on today?'

I'm so sick, jfc.

I seriously wonder if whatever I do wrong when I happen to play O8 can be easily catalogued onto a 3x5 card or something because I literally cannot win


Of course, that also applies to all forms of poker right now, so maybe I just suck

I have both read and thoroughly enjoyed this before. I think even before I had an account.

Just didn't realize it was you, Howard!

Any of the 2+2 books will make you a winner overnight as long as you can handle the boredom. That's the toughest part and probably why low limit 08 is so good: the rest of them 1. don't know what they're doing and 2. even if they do they just can't wait for proper hands to play.

I'm glad that you liked it. I look back on it and face palm myself every time.


-----------------

I'll relate another quick BJ story from Resorts:

Playing 2am Monday and I have to leave to get to work. I'm up ~13K. The floor lady asks why I'm leaving, I explain, she says they'll send me home in a limo and I can sleep, I say 'what about my car?', she says they'll have someone drive it behind the limo, I say ok, 2 hours later I'm plus ~25K and leave and can see the floor lady is visibly pissed, I get out to the limo there's a guy w/ a box, asks my name, I say yes, he says he's from room service, I say I'm taking a limo, he says 'it's room service for the limo.'

Box stuffed w/ all kinds of food and drinks and I didn't get any sleep at all.

There's a megathread in BBV called Degen Stories if you need to kill an afternoon or five.

The post says "today is my 60th birthday" but the post is from 2010. Did someone transcribe the whole conversation from a cuneiform stone tablet or some sort of cave painting?
