HP has 20-40 OE.

Bellagio was getting 30-60 Stud 8 for several months late last year.

Alas, it will not be me. Happy with 17th place though; it exceeded my expectations. And it's been years since I've been a regular around here.

Don't know if Jason is considered a "forum hero", but he does post here on occasion.

World class player and more importantly, a very nice guy.

Congrats to one happy winner!

Agreed. I enjoyed seeing that both of the final HU were great WCPs.

Re: *Official* December LC thread of Stud Forum***

Three handed game at Commerce. Stud high. 20-40. I raise the bring-in with a Jack door. Don't have anything else. Third guy folds rolled 8's because the dealer sucks and always screws him. The number of guys in that game that get pissed at the dealer when they are running bad never ceases to amaze me.

Re: *Official* December LC thread of Stud Forum***

if he showed the trips then i would raise every hand and love it.
why would he even ante if he was going to fold every hand raised.

Re: *Official* December LC thread of Stud Forum***

Sometimes I mention plays that others make and say that I wouldn't believe it unless either I absolutely knew that the person telling me the story was reliable or I hadn't seen it w/ my own eyes. Now I believe even this and it's a damn hard one to swallow.

I played in a 3handed 20/40 game at foxwoods.. Me, a regular, and a poker room reg but not a stud reg. He folded solid to great made hands face up multiple times to river bets. We just kept saying great fold. He went broke in short order.

Re: *Official* December LC thread of Stud Forum***

once against this kid named mark 45 years ago i was beating him badly over the course of a few weeks. he folded often to my raises or reraises so i moved in on him after he made a large raise. he showed aces and folded saying he wasnt going to let me beat him again.
it happens more than most realize from overly tight losers on the verge of busto.

Re: *Official* December LC thread of Stud Forum***

Gamblers do weird things. We have $500 max bet and I saw a guy put in 13k, 500 at a time, in Omaha high on a 3 flush non paired board. Around the 10th bet he goes "I know you have the nuts but when the board pairs on the end I want to get all your money"

A player once mucked 99, KTs and TT face up back to back to back against me in headsup limit holdem because I was running too good.

Re: *Official* December LC thread of Stud Forum***

There's a reg in my 8-16 who, while playing 20-40, open mucked A-A UTG. I wasn't there and I know about it bec he considers it a brag and I could ask so-and-so who was there if it was true. Then he chuckled and said 'It turned out that I was right.'

Re: *Official* December LC thread of Stud Forum***

10-15 years ago, a hold em player well known for his bad behaviour would sit in the Vegas stud games during the Series. There was one dealer at the Bellagio who "always screwed him." When she'd come and stand behind the current dealer to push in, he would become visibly agitated and start muttering, "She never deals me a winner," and, "I'm not going to play a hand, I'll walk."

But he wouldn't go anywhere, he'd just sit there and grumble, and shoot her evil looks, and peek his hole cards. Sooner or later he would just have to play a hand, and I would raise him on 3rd or 4th, and he would fold by firing his hand at her face up and say, "See, I told you!"

The hands he folded were always the hands I wished for, but never got. The thing is, when people start doing this it means they've lost their analytic powers and are dead in the water, just waiting to be torpedoed. They've gone over to the crazy side.

Re: *Official* December LC thread of Stud Forum***

8-16 Stud8 hand at Talking Stick: Half-kill is on I raise (A-4)5r and get called by a 7 and a K. 5th looked like this:

V1: 7-8-7
V2: K-J-3
Me: (A-4)5-2-9.

Checked to me, I bet. Lots of low cards available and 3 of the 3's. Both call.

6th I pair the 9's and the other 2 don't look very threatening but I'm not betting and it gets checked through.

I catch a J otr and check. The 7's checked dark, the K just folded, I roll over and say 'that's all I've got' and the 7's start to squeeze his river card.

The countdown starts: 6...5...4...3...2...1, 'you're good.'

Wheeeeeeeeeee...........

Re: *Official* December LC thread of Stud Forum***

gotta bet on 6th. they aint check raising here. because you might get out a one pair hand that can outdraw your nines which have a big chance of being good right now.
and if beat only a ten jack queen king will keep you from drawing out.

in this spot you may have gotten two of them to fold on 6th. a real rare event.

The honest answer is that I've lost some of my gamble w/ age. I drive slower on the highway also. I had enough to bet, Ray's right, and next time I'll bet.

I've started tipping early on 3rd street sometimes after I defend my bringin expressing confidence that I will win the hand. And it's been getting me some free 4th streets lol
