This seems like a pretty good solution to me. I don't play the mixed games though, so maybe I'm missing something...?

Re: Mike Matusow and David Singer HORSE chat

Someone could make a site to datamine the big mixed games and post stats of who sits for what games what percentage of the time, and maybe have a list of the ten worst offenders.

Re: Mike Matusow and David Singer HORSE chat

The whole discussion is pretty pointless.

If you play cash H.O.R.S.E and an opponent sits out during his weaker games, you should ask myself "can I beat this guy in the games he plays?"
If the answer is yes, then everything's fine.
If the answer is no, then just sit out during the games that he wants to play. Until he leaves.

BTW criticising Mikey's rant is really silly. FT want him to blow his top now and again. Free publicity. "He makes FT look bad", my a**.

David Singer is red PROFESSIONAL on FullTilt. He should act like a PROFESSIONAL. Resorting to shady tactics like sitting out during your weak games constantly is unprofessional and somebody should question him about it. Yes, the game probably could use a fix to stop less well-knowns from using the same tactics; but the point is David Singer shouldn't be acting so unprofessionally. It just shouldn't be an issue.

Too weird. "Random HORSE" might be fun in its own right, but it changes the game too much.

Cliff notes this thread:

Chorus of anonymous, internet, masturbatory trolls expounding on lack or non lack thereof said poker etiquette. LOL

Mike Matusow exhibiting public masturbatory tendencies and demanding respect for being a waifish oaf. LOL

David Singer playing 2K-4k and being villanized and excoriated by same public masturbatory clowns of ordinance violations. LOL

Cash game is about making money. Period. If he has an edge against H.O.R.S.E players by only playing his better games, then he is doing exactly what cash games are made for.

H.O.R.S.E is a tournament format. Stop whining just because it does not work out in cash games.
now we all know why your living in kfn northern germany. this def is angling period.

+1 to everything BartJ wrote, even though everybody's being incredibly stupid about it.

Also, Mike Matusow really does not conduct himself well! He's a drunken belligerent clown.

Re: Mike Matusow and David Singer HORSE chat

He strikes again, first hand in sb during LHE, then this:

David Singer: back in a little while

Rob Hollink: lol, are you keep on doing this, even
when everybody is complaining about it?

David Singer: keep on doing what. I usually play for
hours straight. I just played for 4 hours last night

David Singer: I am doing something in my house
that just happened

Rob Hollink: yeah, but do it when stud high starts.

Then leaves.

It's a win win situation, when someone else joins he waits till the other games begin to sit in again.

If someone complains, he can fake irritation if the other player is complaining about what he does and leave because of that.

This is getting pathetic.

All they have to do is sitout and refuse to play with him.. If he keeps wrecking games FTP will have to handle it.

Your posts always seem angry.

I have no problem with you having an opinion on any topic. However, the way you express your thoughts often lack any constructive contribution to the topic. If you feel something is incorrect then you should state why.

Above, you again make a comment about someone else (not the first time). Probably someone you have never sat in a game with or even met. You have read the op's original chat, maybe watched Singer play a few times on FT or edited television, and have an opinion on what type of person he is. That makes no sense.

Your opinion on the HORSE, on how players should behave in a game, how Singer's acted, on the isolated chat posted would make sense.

Why take a shot at someone you don't know?

Some of the "name" pros are nice guys, some not. Some honest, some not. Unless you know someone making a generalization about them vs your opinion on how they acted in a specific situation of which you have knowledge, is useless and illogical.

He is a rules nit. You going to disagree with that?

And anyone who consistently sits out his worst games at a HORSE cash table has little poker etiquette or class. He is constently getting called out on it from numerious players. It's not an isolated incident.
