and spamz who is that girl? is she famous?
I played a little 6 max PLO last year on tilt. Mainly chased David Chiu around because he was lol bad at the time. It was whatever level $5000 is the buy in for, 10/20? I think I got up to maybe 20K but lost half of it back in one night (Chiu wasn't playing and I sucked), cashed out, and didn't play for six months.

I have lost pots deep in Mtt's that had $10K payjumps but its really not the same.

You should just post the play information in a new thread so CWAR can ban you for spam!

I mean, lots of good players move that high and lose, whether it be tilt or just those little leaks that aren't regularly exploited in the lower games being exploited in the higher stakes ones.

A guy like Tonimontana pops into my head, I think he's lost or used to lose money in the real high games, then drop down and do pretty well (and give people a pretty tough time). Especially in turbos, these kinds of guys just don't hang themselves that often, or when they do they've already taken half your stack. They do a lot worse in regular speeds, especially if they can't adjust their hyper aggressive tendencies.

I don't remember much specifically about alfios though, only that I recall him being a tough aggro. I may very well be wrong about him.
not saying he is a bad player, but I think he's fairly easy to play against, not overly hard to adept to

i know it's probably been covered, but i can't really find it anywhere. i'm not looking for a super in depth response or anything, but if anyone has any experience with it:

playing 4mans with a partner = +EV/worth it?

i mean, it isn't funny. it's just dumb.

was wondering if people here had done it and if it was worth it.
obviously you're halving your profits, but you're also increasing the chances of winning. just wanted to know if those two factors completely cancel each other out or if its actually worth it?

Thomas is a total douche. The best part is he advertises his ****ty blog in his location so after he berates you you can go read it. Don't know about the other guy but stevesbets is more comic relief than anything. He's an institution of tilt.

Skates covered this in this post, but yes 4 mans are a good deal if you have a winning partner.

A lot of people here do it, and Stars has blessed it. If 2 of the same regs are consistently sitting 4Mans, they are probably team playing for a session

Word of warning:

Stars has blessed this (quite correctly IMO, since although it does reduce your variance and can increase your EV compared to playing 2mans individually if you and your partner are both +EV against the field, the fact that you're playing with a partner really has no effect on the *other* players), but Full Tilt has condemned it, and if you play 4mans there with the same person a lot, they will lock you out from signing up for games with your partner the second anybody complains about you, and may even have detection processes running that don't require anybody to complain even.

So don't try it on Full Tilt.

Scossett and Steves play in the 110s now? Or did Thomas move up?
