i think the plo version is a ****** ******ed idea, you don't make enough grimming people and trips don't come enough to pay attention.
anyway me and nuts are both obviously hammered drunk playing and he shows me trips which gets him a grim. i don't notice so naturally we're like ok what do we do now.
i'm like well i have nfi, i'll at least ship you a grim.
hes like 'nah man just ship me $4550''.
i'm like seriously?'
he's like 'nah just $3"
i think he means 3k and start saying well your equity can't be above 1k in a hu plo flip so we gotta work this out, but you can at least grim me.
he's like 'nah i want you to ship me 3 dollars'.
naturally i'm like 'I WONT DO IT, I"M NOT GOING TO SEND YOU $3" but i've already sent it obviously just in case he's serious.
i'm like shall i give you a grim?
he's like just make sure i get the $3, snap quits.
nice to know he isn't some douchebag. people are getting worse these days. i can think of so many people who have started to act like little **** lately and i want to punch them in the face but i have no recourse.....
My friend CeJeH and I played this last night HU Battleship style and it was the most ridiculous thing i've ever done... i was 5b/c KTo preflop (which was standard for the dynamic) and running ridiculous bluffs. sometimes just open ship the T5o type hand preflop because of the added equity if he folds that i get to choose to flip or not the best hand... this set up spots where i would randomly ship JJ preflop and he'd snap call with Ax type hands.
this creates such interesting dynamics and allows players to explore 5/6/7 betting when they normally wouldn't. not to mention his our PTR's are ridiculous. i lost 20 BIs... pretty sure we're going to be playing this battleship style at least 2-3 times a week. this is the nuts to play after a long session or a losing day. its so much fun.
