Re: Software glitch on pokerstars with video proof

In all honesty I never actually learned omaha from reading instructions or watching a video tutorial. I learned from just observation. I watched games of the top pros and when you do it like this, at first you don't know whether they have to use all four cards in their hand or if they can choose to use entirely the board. Eventually, this way, you deduce that the maximum they can use from their hand is two cards but it's not clear they have to use exactly two, until you come across a hand like mine, or you think you have a flush, and you think, why the hell did I not win that hand?

Obviously not the best way to learn omaha, but I hate reading instructions.

So..... you know everything about coding by observing as well? I can't wait to see what your programs look like.

How about we insult people after making a ridiculous claim and not providing the "video proof" you had.

And what's the big deal with play chips. I never play omaha so decided to practice with play money. I know everyone on the internet is a natural expert, jumps straight into real money and turns $50 into $10 million, but us mere mortals like to practice and get better. PS I've played 10's of thousands of hand real money in hold em

No apologies. By the way going to that much effort on a forum post is really really sad. You must have some serious issues bud. I feel for you. What a waste of time lol.

This post makes no sense whatsoever. Firstly the fact that I didn't understand omaha has nothing to do with what I know about coding. Secondly, I'm not a coder, so it's completely irrelevant anyway. But I was using logic to say that the coding for the results of omaha on a poker site is going to be the same for both play money and real money because it is the same game so it will have the same algorithms. You can grasp that right?

And you are an expert coder on some poker site right? Nah you're some nerd, more likely, who does nothing useful in his mom's house lol. I'm doing a degree in Accounting and Finance and I LOVE IT

Cool story bro! You come on here accusing PokerStars of a software glitch yet it was your stupidity of not understanding a game which you readily admit. Then instead of admitting your mistakes and realizing you wrongfully accused the company you try your luck at insults.

"A few people have asked about the $150 grind challenge and I would like to do this in the future, but it is far too time consuming to do at the minute..."

I was going to leave a comment on your blog and ask about this too, but I figured you'd already had loads of people asking you about it, so I didn't bother.

No, like I said a few. You do understand the difference between a few and loads right? 3 comments were sent to me on my youtube channel after a video showing microstakes grinding at the lowest two limits £0.01/0.02 and £0.02/05 on william hill. I grinded £40 in 3 or 4 days then got bored and showed my transactions history and balance history to prove it. I don't have the time or money to do it any higher or even at all at the minute. so I just play micro stakes tourneys when I can

You confused the guy in the picture with a programmer. Accountants get nothing but social interaction in today's world of business.

Re: Software glitch on pokerstars with video proof

best 2005 blog written in 2013

Quote:
I was recently playing in a low limits cash game and I called the blind with pocket 9s and then folded to an all in as it received a caller. It turned out the caller had Ace, something; it might have been AQ. and the all in guy had pocket 10s and I think he won the pot with a set and the other guy matched his ace, but regardless I would have come last anyway. I was talking with some donkey in the chat box, saying thank God I folded pocket 9s. He went on to call me a pussy and say Ďyou should never fold pocket 9′s, that is the first rule of pokeríÖ

Ö wait a minute did he not just see the flop? I tried explaining this to him and that the previous hand was a prime example of why he was wrong. My response was Ďan all in pre-flop indicates strong pockets; first rule of pokerí. I was actually going to call if the other guy didnít because I thought he might have had AK and I would take a chance. I think the hand that was played showed why calling in the previous scenario and losing would not have been unlucky but rather calling would have been a statistically unsound decision to make.

You get a lot of donkeys, especially at the lower stakes who will call/raise anything with medium or even low pockets. When I see pocket 9s, I immediately think this is a nice hand, but at the same time, this could get me into trouble. How I play it will depend on the table. If there is a lot of re-raising going on, I will maybe just call the blind and if there is a moderate re-raise call this too. If there is a pretty passive table, I will likely raise, hopefully get rid of most of the people and if someone calls you know they have something, maybe pockets or face cards. Then you have to tread very carefully if face cards show up on the flop. If I need a payout quick in a tournament, then I will almost definitely call an all in with 9′s and just hope that I see a 9 on the flop. Isnít it a great feeling when that happens?

So, with pocket 9s like with most cards, I may either raise, call, check, fold or even go all in. It all depends on the game type, the players at the table and my position. One thing is for sure I wonít be following the first rule of poker for donkeys and Ďnever folding pocket 9sí.

I just have to tell you about an incident that occurred shortly after writing this. I was in a sit and go and lo and behold the pocket 9′s come. I had about 10 000 chips and the blinds were 250/500. I decided limp call and then someone went all in for 3000 with two callers. I didnít want to lose that much as I was sure that someone would hit a better flop with that many people in, so I folded. The flop is dealt and I canít believe it; the 9 is dealt. Terrible decision right? Wrong. A seven on the flop and a seven on the turn only gives the all in guy quads! What a great lay down. I seem to have an uncanny ability to lay down those slippery 9s at the right time..

^ Two 9's in your hand and two 7's and a 9 on the board. Clear full house.
