They're pretty good for the most part, I guess it's about what you'd expect from a 109r. I did manage to get to the FT in it last week, so that was kinda nice

Strange things going on with WPN PLO8 cash

I'm a regular at the .50-.1 through 3-6 PLO8 and sometimes NLO8 cash games on ACR. I've found some fishy behavior going on in terms of players sitting out and leaving the games at the exact same time. Tonight, I sat down at an open 2-4 PLO8 game with 1/6 players sitting out. Immediately, 2 more players quickly sat out and left at the exact same time a few minutes later. We played 3 handed for a few orbits and the other 2 players also sat out and left. This isn't a rare occurance and I find it's difficult to keep the 1-2, 2-4, and 3-6 PLO8 games going, as either there are bots playing or people simply refuse to play shorthand. Anyone else feel the same way?

Re: Strange things going on with WPN PLO8 cash

No, its just bum hunting reg behavior. If you're good, a lot of regs won't want to play short handed. Heck, I'm a losing player and some regs won't play me. Once I get together a br, don't worry, I'll play anyone.

Re: Strange things going on with WPN PLO8 cash

Their target prolly had just left or busted. Not much specific info but a few could be using one of the many seating scripts these days or just doing it manually. From the stakes you're playing everyone pretty much knows everyone else, as far as the regulars go.

edit - space beat me to it pretty much

Re: Strange things going on with WPN PLO8 cash

Do you feel like people are colluding? Or just bum hunting? I haven't seen a few of the "fish" I was seeing a few weeks ago and the games aren't very good now, just the same nits who only play AA and A2-A4. I couldn't even get action on a 1-2 PLO8 60 cap table heads up for Christ sakes! I wish I lived in a state where I could play on ignition. Anonymous tables are the way to go to prevent this sort of thing from happening

Re: Strange things going on with WPN PLO8 cash

Idk, I mostly play the o8 tourneys there. Paying negative rake for the plo8 on-demands is kinda nice

Even slightly losing players are winning because of it lol. I have access to Ignition and the grass isn't as green as you'd think over on the other side tbh, but not sure about cash in particular.

Re: Strange things going on with WPN PLO8 cash

The on demands are great, especially the 15 which is done in 90 minutes and 1st is usually 130-170. What do you mean negative rake?

Re: Strange things going on with WPN PLO8 cash

On-demands are 2x snc points, 4x during weekday happy hours. This means you can qualify for snc payouts without paying much actual rake or spending much time even. A few of us here try to keep them running often enough that o8-only players can qualify for at least the lowest snc payout tier.

*Mods* You can merge this thread into the other wpn thread here if you want, seems appropriate anyway.

Re: Strange things going on with WPN PLO8 cash

Screen names or this thread is useless lol. I can tell you for the most part if they are regs or not.

Re: Strange things going on with WPN PLO8 cash

Is that even allowed? I'm sure outing people won't help. Not home now but i can go over my hand history at 2-4 the other night. The screen names who wouldn't play weren't the super regs, but I'm sure I've seen them before. I'll just say that spazz gronkowski1987 will only play me short handed if he has position on me and Looser only plays full table and won't give me action heads up. Volander always gives good action though and is loose as **** short handed, but haven't seen him at the tables too often.

We wouldn't be able to tell you if they are cheating for sure, but it might be someone we know that wasn't doing anything malicious...just a lil bumhunting.

I'd say it's probably fair since you've been pretty respectful about it, as long as you out your sn too I'm kinda curious now tbh.

Re: Strange things going on with WPN PLO8 cash

When I get home to check my hand history to out the bum hunters I'll decide if I want to share my SN....it may kill my action though. I'm also a PLO8 and NLO8 tourney regular so I'm always at your table. How about I give you a shout out next time we play together and we can keep it at that?

All 3 are regs with gronk being the bad spew reg and vo being more tag reg and loos3r being more lag reg. Gronk will hit and run depending on the table but the other two play a decent amount of tables. I own Vo's soul in a jar currently so he doesn't like it when I'm at the tables.

None of those 3 are doing cheating. Bumhunting or sitting out, sure but not cheating.

Share it, I'm sure we've played. I'm a bad reg (or at least playing bad this last month I should say)

he wasnt sure if it was just bumhunting or something, or colluding/card sharing/whatever

i think those 3 names werent the ones he was asking about, he was mentioning those as the super regs that hes played against regularly

WHAT!? LoOser is such a massive nit its incredible. Gronk will spew depending on how he is doing for the night. He always buys in for the minimum and has serious sizing and timing tells, and gets it in waaaay too light, but I'll let you guys figure out what they are He had a stretch where he ran insanely well against me but not so much now since he only plays me IP and will literally sit out and jump in 30 minutes later to my left if he doesn't. I've only seen Gronk play tight when he is up.

When I first started playing on WPN, Volander ran like god against me. Was playing any 4 cards and super loose. He's tightened up since then and hasn't been a consistent reg over the past 2 months. Peterfishbutt and reggiereg are also pretty ABC regs. There was one guy I remember who I had tagged who probably lost 2-4K over the course of a few sessions and never saw him again. Over the past 2 weeks I haven't seen too many pure "fish" at the tables.

if you used to watch Mad TV back in the good ole days you should be able to figure out my SN

lol opinions vary but I've seen the guys you are talking about play differently then what you say, just depends. I'm drawing a blank on your s/n but I'm sure we played and I'm not the 2-4k fish loser but I've been on a bit of a downswing for sure this last month.

Re: Strange things going on with WPN PLO8 cash

Just for the record...I've definitely cursed at each and every plo8 and NLO8 reg for calling it off with AAxx on QQJK7 after I triple barrel with air. So no hard feelings . I'm also a massive tilt monkey who had to ban myself from the casino hahaha. I also take shots at 3-6 PLO hi when I'm on tilt, so if you ever see me not playing PLO8, it means I'm stuck and tilted and likely to spew off 600-1200 dollars hehe
