Also, I almost **** my pants on the way in, in addition to several bathroom breaks caused by what I found out today was salmonella poisoning.

Needless to say, I was way out of character. I'm usually a very solid player with a respectable winrate at the 1/2. I never tilt, I smile and laugh at the worst of beats. Cool as a mother****in cucumber. I started to tilt after a very stupid bluff went very wrong (for 400+) I was calling LOTS, 3betting solids with 56s, making ridiculous river bets, showing bluffs, telling everybody how terrible I was, blah blah blah. Everyone hated me, I hated me, it was no fun.

I left only stuck 150, dues to the luck of a few random drunks sitting down.

Lessons learned: Don't play on Tuesdays, Don't play with salmonella poisoning on 3 hours of sleep.
Someone at 1/2 was telling me he got food poisoning . Was it you? I think it was Monday though.

re: The Foxwoods Poker Thread

Hey all

I'm a regular 5/10 lhe full kill player. I either have the white-out Jet hat, or the blue Notre Dame hat with a white clover on the front. If you play 5/10 regularly, I've played with you. I play 10/20 sometimes, but love the 5/10, as it's a 10/20 that slows down, and there can be scared yellowchippers moving up. I have been away for a couple months because my father's sick, and I've been helping him out. My question is: How is the 5/10 game running. When I was ther last , it was slowing down. They moved us back of the room near the ll stud players. has it been going consistently, and can I count on 2-3 tables on a weekend like it used too.I'm heading back down because the action is wlways better when the circus is in town(tourney), and there always seems to be an infusin od money. Thanks.

IF you're rolled you should play the 10, better points for almsot the same stakes.

Yes the 5/10 is still going. It's often a coinflip about whether it or the 10 is running.

Nah, I didn't put it together until Wednesday, and I was playing at Table 80 on Tuesday. This also kind of blew because Table 80 is usually 2/5 so we played short a lot and people kept sitting with full racks thinking it was 2/5.

Exclamation re: The Foxwoods Poker Thread

Alright, so I've a question for all the Foxwoods 1/2 NL guys..

I was semi-regular for a stint in 2008. I always seemed to get stuck playing with this one older guy.. gray hear, lol face, and was a pretty typical degen 1/2 guy, but specifically he has missing most all of one of his fingers from a 'lawnmower accident' when he was young.

He was a lolfest and basically chipdumped any ace nonstop. Anyone else know of the guy or if he still plays there?

It was weird, a group of friends who came down for the day got it started, there was like 5 of them, they all sat at a new 1/2 NL table when it was opened along with me and then all left when the 1/2 PLO game got a table opened.

It was actually 1/2 PLO high/low, which I thought was weird that they would want to play because they weren't europeans.

Oh, and definitely not a regular occurence. Sometimes they get a 2/5 PLO game going on weekends.

Indeed, anyone else going? We can have a few pre-poker drinks at the atrium or stadium or whatever. 7-8pm.

FW policy on exposing cards in cash games?
I know that exposing your cards pre-showdown in tournaments kills your hand, but in cash games, HU, it's apparently still allowed but officially frowned upon in a very unclear way.
In the last several weeks, I have heard massively different versions from different floor personnel there: either there's no problem with it at all; or FW discourages it ("We don't like it becasue it's discourteous")(?!), but there's no penalty; or else you can get a warning and can be ejected for repeated "offenses".
Example: In a 1-2NL game a few nights ago, HU situation on turn: First player goes all in. Opponent clearly states, "I'm not folding yet" and turns over his cards to get a reaction from first player before deciding whether to call. First player can't hear statement, thinks it's a call, and turns over his cards. Second player sees he's way ahead, apologizes for confusion (all are convinced he didn't intentionally mislead), but calls. First player objects, dealer makes no ruling at all and immediately calls Floor. After about 3 min of confusion getting the sequence of events right, (dealer was helpless), Floor allows call to stand (obvious), river is dealt, second player's hand stands up and he's awarded pot. Floor makes no other comment; second player is not warned or admonished. (This is fine with me if that's the policy, but some clarity would help).
I asked Floor what the question was on the hand (presumably her only choices were to allow the call or to kill the second player's hand, and/or to warn him or not)), also to clarify FW's policy on showing, really got no clear answer (my impression was that she didn't really know).
Regardless of anyone's personal opinions on showing, or what the policies are elsewhere, can anyone definitively clarify FW's actual policy on this?

You're assuming there is an official policy? HAH.

In my experience, I've had people do this before and no one commented on it at all - no one at the table, nor the dealer, nor the floor. Then again there was never massive confusion about it like what happened at your table.

IMO, it should be allowed, but I would guess at FW it depends on who the floor is (like pretty much every other ruling there).

I have, too, plenty of times, without any problem. But I can remember another time when a different Floor warned a player that doing it again could get him thrown out......
Personally, I never show a card or a hand for a reaction, but it doesn't bother me if others do it. It's been a part of the game for a long time, and I think it should be allowed. But I'm really commenting here on the confusion surrounding it at FW; either policy would be OK if made clear and consistently enforced. (I guess that's asking a lot.)

re: The Foxwoods Poker Thread

Went last night. Two 5/10 games(one was a steady filling must move , but no 10/20. No one has ever rememebered a Friday when the 10/20 broke before 8

Also, the 1/2 PLO game was going again, pretty strong too, sounds like fun, I think I'll sit down next time. I was too busy watching the Cav/Celtic game. FW is a great room to watch any important Celtic/Redsox games.

Funny how I have been away for 4 months or so, and when i go back, it's almost all the same people. It was like I never left..very telling. Still won a couple bucks though. One big hand was a raised family pot/kill pot, and I had black aces.( No I had no opportunity to RR, I was orig. raiser). I figured they were dead with that action..then came all club flop, and sure enough, I flushed..nery nice. Two hands later I got my kings snapped in a kill pot with a kid calling down his ace-six all the way to the river. Long way to go for that card..oh well, came out 200 ahead, and had some fun.

Also, saw a fight in J lot last night/morning. IMO this is the best place to park.

You should be able to face your cards up if your facing an All-in from your opponnent, sometimes this really helps. You are facing no further action with no one behind you to act so you should be able to do whatever you want heads-up. The player who thought it was a call is stupid if he knew he was beat because he doesn't have to showdown until the hand is complete in a cash game, unlike a tournament where you have to showdown your cards at moment of the All-In call. Also, in a tournament you can expose your cards without your hand being dead. If you do it and explain to the floor you didn't understand because you didn't, you would get a warning and any further hand showing before showdown would result in a 1-orbit penalty. If they know you and have seen you try to pull shady stuff before, no warning and you will get a 1-orbit penalty.

What I'm really trying to say is that the player who exposed his cards is in no wrong doing, he was basically trying to see if he could get a read to fold or call, no harm no foul. If anything the player who shoved and showed his loosing cards before the dealer asked for them to show their hands should learn the rule-book or just play some video poker imo.

Five 20-40s and Zero 10-20 I hate being right.

I explained the floor how you need a pipeline to keep players into the bigger game (ask the 75-150 stud players). And it ended like this

Floor: So you are saying we should hold up the 20 game to keep a 10 game open for you?

DMW: Exactly.

of course the 5/10 is actually surviving back in the cavern because a bunch of 10-20s have dropped down.

re: The Foxwoods Poker Thread

Yes was a time when you played hours at 5/10 waiting for a 10/20 seat to open up.
Just the times I guess, every thing else slowing down.
Last two years have been bad and closing my store next month so i hope to be playing more live poker.

re: The Foxwoods Poker Thread

My buddy plays the 75 stud game, and he agrees. He stopped playing it alot because it would become a mixed game, and he likes just stud-H. You really do need that pipeline, alot of 10/20 regs were commenting on it last night. Didn't see Fox, Brenda was at the 5/10. Jan plays a lot at 5/10 anyway. Jay was over with us too. It might as well be a 10/20, especially on weekends, but still your point is well taken that you need that feeder game.

Also, I hate being back in the cavern. I wish we were under the arch still. We were actually over near the 20/40 studs when we first came downstairs, but shortly moved to under the arches --tables 20,21 I think. Now, back in the cave. Maybe if they moved us near the 10/20, 20/40 lhe games, it would induce more 10/20 action?

re: The Foxwoods Poker Thread

I was playing the the 1/2 PLO last night. We started rotating between hi lo and just hi, and the game was decent except for one guy that held the action up on every decision for minutes on end. I ended up leaving the game because of him, and I think it broke early this morning after playing 3 handed for awhile. I wanna try to get this going on a regular basis on friday nights (usually when I play).
