nope it is normally higher than 45 but lower than 50 - I would actually say I'm one of the less aggressive regs at 200z fwiw Rapidesh, a lot of truly mindless button clickers there still who think that redline going up = strong player.

Really? I thought you were very aggro with pio lines all over the place. Yeah, there are tons of button clicking people, but some of them can't be considered regs, also a big part of the population is very nitty, so I can't see you closer to those big nits than to the more solid aggro guys like alltoonew.

I don't agree 100% with your redline ideas, because some button clicking is very good vs a lot of players, the problem is that those plays print a small amount vs those who won't fight back enough and will lose a lot vs smart opponents. If those guys (like finland as an example) kept doing their crazy **** vs most guys but never vs the good regs, they would be doing insanely well.

The problem is that they often just can't find the shut down button

Resisting the urge to comment on regs games

Had the below hand today with a disconnect on the turn. Emailed stars and expecting them to do nothing, but worth being aware for anyone else playing these games:

PokerStars, Hold'em No Limit - $2/$4 - 5 players
Replay this hand on Upswing Poker

InezMuchez (UTG): $432.00 (108 bb)
Skazo4nik777 (CO): $400.00 (100 bb)
mol'farrr (BU): $431.92 (108 bb)
YOU-MAD-BR0 (SB): $400.00 (100 bb)
Ravnica11 (BB): $150.00 (38 bb)

Pre-Flop: ($6)
3 players fold, YOU-MAD-BR0 (SB) raises to $12, Ravnica11 (BB) calls $8

Flop: ($24) 5 4 5 (2 players)
YOU-MAD-BR0 (SB) checks, Ravnica11 (BB) checks

Turn: ($24) 8 (2 players)
YOU-MAD-BR0 (SB) checks, Ravnica11 (BB) checks

River: ($24) J (2 players)
YOU-MAD-BR0 (SB) checks, Ravnica11 (BB) bets $4, YOU-MAD-BR0 (SB) folds

Total pot: $24 (Rake: $1.20)
Ravnica11 (BB) wins $22.80

Serious question, should stars do something? Obv itís dirty but clearly itís an issue on your end and a guy taking advantage of that doesnít really break any rules afaik?

Yeah I actually don't know to be honest, maybe it's just a kind of soft rule not to deviate in disconnect spots.

I had Q5ss so was just tilted enough to snap post

Ravnica has always been a ****. Surprised he still has a roll tbh. Imagine short stacking 400nl with close to 0% rb. Classic Rav, braindead.

It would be nice but, no, they shouldn't. You should really expect to get min bet like this and conversely do the same when the opposite happens. It's the only way to not be free rolled/everyone gets roughly the same ev. There's a reason most sites dropped all in protection for players.

Two people need to do this in a much bigger pot and claim that a precedent has been set.

Will do a monthly update soon (cliffs, had a sick time skiing, won at many evbb/100, lost at many $ per 100), but wanted to share this sick article by D7 - part of a larger series on the much publicised solver vs explo approach:

Will find time to write a full update at end of the month, but for now:



I have 4 other full time 200z regs with the elusive good reg tag, who can guess them?

How you can guess, when you are not a 200z reg.

0/4 unfortunately Rapi but some reasonable shouts in there.

Take this all of a pinch of salt btw guys, good reg label is very rare and honestly given out fairly randomly.

Someone on twitter got shiffty for another one.

I don’t think I’ve seen shiffty play a hand at 200z this year; he’s definitely deserving of the tag though, irrespective of the stake it’s relating to.

I played 100k hands in there and watched finland play a lot too.

Also I thought shiftyy was good but didn't think he was a reg at 200z, same with bena.

But those "good reg" "bad reg" tags imo aren't very useful imo, first because it's hard to get enough sample on someone to be sure they are good, while easy to tag someone as bad, but it could be a false positive if you managed to see 1 punt the guy made in the last 100k hands in a bad day.
