small sample etc. but going through my last 2 days of play 3102 hands, I've flopped exactly 4 sets, which sucks obv.

Using the 8.5:1 set formula to be conservative, I'm behind 362 flopped sets imo. 3102 x .118 = 366

I sees a heater comin'

10% is better than ~2%. I hope you ran well on top of that too.

I was sick as **** in bed during that promo. I haven't been sick in 6 years. In that, I'm running above expectation - but I did walk my dog in the rain along the Rhine the day before for 2 hours so you get what you ask for too. He (the dog) swam in 4 different lakes/ponds that day and wasn't effected, except a coat of ice on his coat.

3 buyins below expectation. soooo... no still up 7 buyins, but only 8tabled the micros for the promo. The tables were so soft that even I could be a winning player with my 5k hands of cash experience

yea, really the only way it'd happen is if you played against me and I 3bet you the 366 times that you had a pocket pair.

Re: *** Official STTf February kakkendaaliluukku Thread - No lame BBV ***

How much would it cost to an XM radio installed at like a Best Buy? I have a 12 hour drive this weekend and want to get a radio to make it more bearable, especially since I'm driving through the middle of nowhere.

I don't have a tape deck, auxilliary port, OR external antenna on the car so I don't know what my other options are other than to get it installed, but I don't want to drop a ton of money on it. Anyone have any experience with this kinda thing?

There has not been a 9man 16 or above worth playing today. 2 sets today I register at 16s & 27s and I have 9 winning players in each game for about 20 out of my 40 games.

Get one of those car to regular outlet adapters so you can plug in an ihome or even your laptop. It looks kinda ghetto, but power adapter + laptop + verizon aircard = the nuts for long drives if you aren't the only one in the car.

I've been to both. Cambodia last year and Viet Nam 8 years ago. Both were amazing, you will love it. Those shots are probably overkill unless you're planning on a lot of jungle trekking or intimate interactions with villagers and livestock. Just don't drink the water and don't eat raw vegetables or raw peeled fruit (anything uncooked that could be touched by ppl) - and you'll be fine. But those are shots you should probably have anyway, so no biggie. I'd avoid the malaria medicine if I was you. That **** ****s you up before during and after. Not worth it imo.

Tour of the Me Kong Delta and a minor Viet Cong camp/tunnel system near there was probably my favorite part of Nam. Da Lat is cool too. Nha Trang was hot as hell - but nice beach. Be sure to hit up Mama Hanh's party boat if it's still going. In Saigon please go to the backpacker ghetto and tell me if hotel 211 and Bar Guns & Roses next door are still kicking. Also if you meet come crazy hot vietnamese chick in a bar, don't come back for her a month later to see if you can make a life together. You can't she's crazy. Trust me. They're all crazy. All the ones you meet in bars anyway.





Cambodia we just did Angkor Wat but it was amazing. I really wish I'd had time to check out Phnom Penh.

I'll be the only one in the car for the trip Moving back to OH from NYC.

I hadn't heard anything about them going under. Don't they basically have a monopoly on satellite radio now?! How can they go under?

Suzzer - you tilt me, as my life seems so dry compared to your's...and I went on an 8 month deployment and visited Hong Kong, Australia, Singapore, Dubai and Hawaii. Have you been to Egypt?

Also, strat question...is it too nitty to 3 bet/fold QQ against a random UTG raiser who min-raises then 4 bets me on the first hand? Isn't this always AA/KK? Seemed too silly to post the whole HH for it.

That link says no service outage for customers most likely. Just no high priced talent like Howard Stern (who I don't like anyway).


I just can't imagine it going away with how many car manufacturers are making satellite radio standard, and how popular it seems to be (and relatively inexpensive). I can definitely foresee the bankruptcy, but you have to think after that they'll restructure talent contracts, etc. and be able to make a go of it.

Yea I think it's too nitty generally. However I am starting to wonder if it's ok to fold QQ when randoms click it back.

Eh never got into podcasts. I just like to listen to things like ESPN radio or Handel on the Law (he's on XM). I don't do music for most of long drives because I need something to keep my mind active.

I've got a built-in adapter for XM Radio in my car but don't subscribe to the service. What's the minimum # of months I could sign up for?

Would be awesome for trips + friends to play around with.
