I know this is shaq's well so he can answer himself ... but IMO there are *very* few players who I would consider "good" who have stats like 17/3 or 16/3 or 14/2. These players may be small winners, but they are quite easy to play against. 18/6 is somewhat different.

Re: The Well - Shaqalicious

I'm curious about the transition from casual to pro player.

What is your estimate in the difference of hours you put in per session? Per month?

Did you grind out your whole roll, bink a tourney, or deposit?

Social life; is it better or worse since going pro?

Re: The Well - Shaqalicious

How has PLO been working out for you? I've played PLO since about 2004, and the game is constantly evolving. It was easy to be an ABC player online back then, but that just doesn't fly anymore. Do you see yourself transitioning to more PLO in the future?

Are there players you don't want to see sitting down at your HU table?

Bump.

Threads older than February 1 are to be automatically archived next month in preparation for an upgrade. I'm bumping all 2+2 threads cited in our two stickies that are not already archived so that they will not be lost to us.

This includes all the wells.

No stars, mostly the app based games but action is hit or miss. Where are you playing live plo8 if you dont mind me asking? I mostly hate live PLO8, due to nits running it twice/3 times making all these messy side pots getting 1/8th and other nonsense LOL

Re: The Well - Shaqalicious

Re: The Well - Shaqalicious

Have you ever played BigO?

Could you explain some of the attraction of BigO as it mystifies me?

Where is the best action online for BigO?

Best wishes,

Al

If someone wants to learn PLO8 to beat up to 1/2, 2/4, what are the best resources these days?

Amok lives in Norway or Iceland I think, so to start you’re going to need better pigeons. Pro tip: watch out for sea eagles.

It made me giggle a bit, too. I mean jesus christ the games are so easy right now. People limp and have no idea what to do post-flop.
