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

how the hell am i supposed to get better at fifa09?

i just got the game after never having really played soccer games before. i beat rookie and amateur pretty easily, cant beat the next skill level. i lose online like 10-0 everytime at least, and i've never seen someone not play as ManU

the opening screen is pretty usless for trying to get better. how the eff do people get so good? are there fifa coaches?

Play the game for fun. I never understood why people play games like Madden thousands of hours just to get a better ranking. When you have a game(poker) that pays you to get better that's the type of game you want a coach for.

Put the skill level to world class and just play non stop for 3 or 4 days, eventually you will stop getting beat by so many goals.

The game is most fun when you destroy another person in the game of football.

Hi,

I trust the mods will forgive this "spam" for a PokerStars event. As some of you know, before moving to Sydney to work with PokerStars, I used to live in an Australian town called Wangaratta, which is just near the recent bushfires that have destroyed a number of towns and killed hundreds of people.

PokerStars is running a tournament to raise funds for the victims of the bushfire - to help rebuild the towns and lives damaged by the fire. It is tournament #141744975 (Tourney tab -> Special -> 'Australian Bushfire Appeal'). It is going to run at 10.30pm, PokerStars Server time on Feb 21 (2.30pm Australian time, on Sunday).

The entry fee to the tournament includes a $10 donation, which PokerStars will match dollar for dollar. It'd be nice to see folks take part in this if you'd like.

If you don't want to play, you're able to make donations via credit card online directly at www.redcross.org.au

hey josem, any way you can set up one where we buy in, it never runs and stars just matches the whole fee? I have no desire to play the mtt, so I'd rather the whole $20 went to the cause.

In a broader sense, this is an excellent idea. PS could have a charity of the month, and run a trny first sunday of the month. List 2 trny's under the events tab, one for donations only, and one to be played. Selfishly thinking of the PR advantages and generally getting people to feel less that we're all a bunch of degenerate gamblers, instead we're a bunch of degenerate gamblers with a conscience!

they did several mtt's and several of the buyin but no mtt things at different prices after the tsuname mess also. I donno if they could do a monthly thing with matching. It's probably better as a spacific event sort of thing.

It would definately work with like half the prize pool and all the fee donated though. That wouldn't be much of a burden on stars or the players.

I googled "donate australian fire" and got a link to the Australian Red Cross.

http://www.redcross.org.au/vic/servi...ppeal-2009.htm

just sayin, if you don't want to play, you can still donate down under.

also,

Sup Yugo!

yeah, but if stars is willing to match funds it makes sense to wait till josem sets it up at stars.

also, I'm lazy ldo.

Right, that's what I was trying to say with my original comment.

Dear God, can you please put a temporary halt to the endless procession of surreal beats in every one of my giant equity showdowns where I am a huge favorite? Just until I make enough to pay my rent? That would be so awesome if you could somehow do that. Thanks big guy.

Well the halt on was not put. BUT I did dish out some surreal beats of my own. So I can live with that.

Then i said out loud "lol i bet this time I get dealt AA, shove, he calls with trash, then flops like 2 pair.". Then I get dealt AA, shove, get called with T8o, and the flop comes T84 and it holds up.

Was pretty surreal.

dont gimme dem rolleyes, i was giving something surreal beat, on topic imo.

anyway anyone think Wiz hud would be useful? it's all in AHK, it runs on the HEM database. works pretty neat right now, auto sets the stats overlays as you move thru hands. just wondering what stats would be useful - i guess like blind steal stats, flat call open maybe? thoughts?

NO

The last thing we need is a bunch of complaining for the things that we all see on a daliy basis.


Hood, thats looks very cool. I am kinda suprised more people didnt see it/comment about it. Maybe they did, idk.. Maybe you should start a thread for it once you get it complete, I would be interested in it for sure. Even though I am complete n00b about AHK and all that stuff. On the other hand, You seem to be the AHK Master.

No, it would be the worst thread in 2p2 history and there has been plenty of competition for that honour over the years.

A bunch of sng players whining about beats would be awful, it is part of the game with so many showdowns.

What I actually would like to see is a BRAG thread. Reserved for solid brags.
It would be nice to hear about other STTFers doing good. Uplifting.
