I'm always so light that I catch cards that I would've bet thousands of dollars were no longer in the deck

It's hard to plug in ranges, you have to do it all in syntax, but it's possible.

1. Players are terrible on hour 8+, intoxicated, card dead, or gets bored

2. Live players are horrendous short handed while you are clearly expert via past results online

3. Guys from 50/100, big NL and big PLO come to game after game breaks,or while waiting for seat.

I mean if you come with 50 Big Bet stack for 20/40, can't imagine you busting that unless you tilt hard which I understand you do but players at Horseshoe are garbage TAG Fish who are Tight Passive or LoosePassive terrible fish which you will destroy.

I sit with 1500 and rarely bust that or come close to having a losing session at least in last 20 - 30 sessions within last 2 years because

1. I run good and play mostly Nit TAG
2. Players are horrendous

Even my best friend whose probably similar to you of playing LAGTAG with extreme level of aggression when required by play history/opponent/meta rarely goes below being down 50 Big bets, although he brings 100 Big bets just in case he runs bad which has happened once HUHU live at Horseshoe around 6am but I coached him his flaw per birding (since I already cashed out 2 hours prior up x0 big bets, don't remember amount).
Wait, what? They run a 50/1 game up there now? Straight LHE? Last time I was there the highest they ever ran was an (awesome) 5/10/20 3 handed nl game that I played, and 20/40 LHE.

I've played maybe 5 sessions of the 20/40 half kill there, and I fully understand how soft it is

Never saw this before: terrible Asian woman asks the dealer to have the floor replace the shuffle machine because she can't win a hand. Taking washing the deck to the next level?

50/100 mix only still.

Highest limit is still 20/40 half kill

Because they know I'm joking. I spent 1700 hours there last year and have never even requested a setup.

I've only done it if they're at the table already, I'm massively stuck, and I'm about to leave. It usually goes like this:
"Hey when are you guys gonna get new shufflemasters in here?"
"Why?"
"Well these ones are obviously rigged, look at all the money X has in front of them!"

The best time to call for a shuffle / setup / new shuffler is when PV hasn't won a pot in 4 dealers finally rakes one in. That deck is clearly rigged.

Might be headed to San Jose on business in a couple of weeks. What's the local mid stakes limit poker scene looking like? I haven't been to the new Bay 101 location yet, just the old one on Bering. Is Bay 101 still the place to play or has the limit action moved over to Casino M8trix?

re: 2018 NC/LC THREAD - are we ever going to get a title?

Put down significant money on some good prop bets.

Foles for MVP at +450. Insanely good odds, considering Philly was at worst +200 to win the game, and the QB of the winning team is MVP 70%+ of the time.

Opening kickoff will NOT be a touchback at EVEN. On the year, Philly kickoff touchback% was 50%; NE was 40%. Even more peculiar, you could bet on Gostkowski first kickoff NOT touchback for -140, or Elliott first kickoff NOT touchback for -115. Yet, first kickoff with no QB attached is EVEN.

Easiest bets ever.

re: 2018 NC/LC THREAD - are we ever going to get a title?

Obviously quite sad that bodog has turn into a multi account heaven. There either a group of people or one person having at least two account. One that sit for information and the other instant join when game pop up. The person/group are playing 3way and then leave. Maybe in their mind that not somehow cheating. ex. Would play me head up for an hour or so and another table with that person sitting out to my left. Another random fishy player come and that sit out person would sit back in. Play for like 10 hands and another person join now, the reg on my left which has been playing for like an hour at other head up table disappear. It obviously that the reg that now just join either are the same person or group. This is the same person/group that would grimming me constantly doing fake 3way leaving once it obviously I am a reg.

Edit: copy/paste to the same bodog thread

Sorry to hear DonJuan...

Can't you theoretically ONLY play HUHU only if these people are constantly grimming you or play 3 handed via collusion constantly?

I recall only exclusively playing HUHU and only like 4 handed+ on bodog/Bovada and thought it was fine but that was over 2 years ago. Not even sure if Bodog/Bovada are same player pool but figure the fish are just as bad still.

Best of luck DonJuan! I'm sure you are still +EV in any game based on your mega graph earlier in this thread or another of your recent results within last year or so

It was +200 on the money line? Man, I'm really glad I didn't get to Vegas because I would have made that bet and the Eagles would have lost.

re: 2018 NC/LC THREAD - are we ever going to get a title?

Philly was equivalent of at worst 40% to win the game. Yet Foles MVP was +450, meaning he'd be mvp about 18%. I definitely take the over 18% on foles mvp.


First kickoff no touch back was +100 (aka EVEN).

But if you wanted first ne kickoff no touchback, or first phi kickoff no touch back, you had to lay odds.


Both are considerable mispricings.
