Pretty solid plan, imo. Let's hope all the racist hicks scheme just as brilliantly.
this plan sounds 1000 times more thought out than any other hick plan ive ever heard

sometimes its accurate and sometimes its awfully off. Found players who were -10% losers @ OPR over a decent sample (3k games or so), but it turned out they are like 6% winners on sharkscope over 7k games.

atm i look the players up at OPR and check whether their sample is significant enough (~1k+) to scope them. This way i don't waste my searches on players who played like 70 sngs or so.

I'd play even if i had to take a poo bowl with me!
$5k and $10k is a lot of money and one game at this point is massive.

that's happened to everyone, weither it's computer, power or internet. the only cure for it is a backup laptop plugged in, charged, ready to go with a cellular wireless internet card for backup internet.

I use a laptop anyway for travel, and realized alone time ago that one outage a year pays for backup internet, so having this setup on standby makes sense.

The game that Monday night in November was high-stakes "beer pong," a drinking game in which players lob Ping-Pong balls into plastic cups.
Michael Phelps was betting big -- and losing.
"I saw Phelps pull out a roll, a bank-wrapped $2,000," said Michael Whitworth, who had been invited to a house near Five Points after his band played a show at 5 Points Pub (now Sudworks Taphouse).
"He said, 'I'll match the $2,000,' " Whitworth continued, referring to Phelps. "Good ol' Phelpsie lost it too."
And, as for the picture:
The photo that got Phelps, 23, in trouble could have been taken by any of the dozens of partyers at the house that night -- or on other nights when Phelps was in Columbia the first week of November.
The story notes that those who attended the party were asked on entering the house to respect Phelps' privacy and not take photographs.

Dude should just go pro in poker too, bink any live final table and be the most famous person in poker. I mean if he's cool as **** as well as a phenomenal athlete he could be hudge.

it's pretty sad the kid cant even go to a party without catching crap. I'll bet he could get the sickest stars backing deal ever.

Is it piss-poor etiquette to play anyway, even though I may be sneezing and blowing my nose every 15-20 mins or so? It's prob obv I'm not feeling well - reddish nose and slightly hoarse. I'm 3rd in points, so one game is pretty significant...
Would you play the $10k event if you had a cold? then you should play this too.

be upfront about it. tell them you will be play sick, but would be happy to postpone if they prefer. or, offer to sit if you get "free"points for sitting out that will keep you in 3rd.

Prob the only reason I hesitate is because most of them wouldn't play - they are all wealthy Wall Street types who just play casually. They will probably think it is rude/gross and may give me a hard time about it.
Tell them for $10K you'll stay home.

They're never going to postpone coz one guy's sick. It's not like its a HU game or something.

Free points is equally a non starter. Never gonna happen.



Just tough it out, stand up from the table when you need to blow your nose, and try not to use the same tissue twice.

The US has looked sloppy on defense in this qualifier. Their pressure is great though, just a couple eff ups because of the weather.


Beasley is a beast and Dempsey is sooo smooth.

USA!!!

Bradley had both goals. First was a volley from 2 feet out on a ball bouncing around after a corner. Second was from maybe 25 yards out, he got a step and let it rip. Keeper definitely should have had it, but it dipped at the last second and the field was wet so it got through.

Since I've started playing less than 5 a month I've been a much happier person. MTT's are for those that love being manic/depressed.

Even when you win money playing big MTTs they almost always end in frustration. Except for that 1 time out of 1000 or so that you actually win.

I think I've won over 20 MTTs and never finished second. None for huge money. But still that's probably the luckiest aspect of my poker career. Also this includes 90-mans.
