Cool. I'm still waiting for the confirmation from Full Tilt. But we should be ok. I will have a password once they write back. They sent me an email saying it takes them about four days to set it up. I hope we can at least get 18 people. So far its you, me, psychic friend, locachica73, faxman, and cptncrazy. Apostle said he will probably play too.

Of course, online, I can't bend over and let the old men at the table see my chi chis. So maybe I won't do so well.

This is the best thing I have ever seen you post, Blinken. That would do wonders for my final fantasy. J, what week do we play each other? I hope it's the week that Eddie Royal throws a 55 yard TD bomb. Either way I'm sure you will be receiving a 22 font, bolded PWNED email.

vinylmartyr
10-28-2008, 10:16 AM
yeah the deposit options on full tilt suck. its a 10$ minumium on p stars but you need 2000 frequent player points to have a private tournament.

shakermaker113
10-28-2008, 11:32 AM
so we need to put a $50 deposit down for a $5 game?

vinylmartyr

well the minimum deposit on full tilt is $50. I they want you to play in other stuff too.

locachica73
10-28-2008, 11:45 AM
I have been playing on the same $50 deposit for a month now. Usually in $2 games.

faxman75
10-28-2008, 05:47 PM
Apparently I can't transfer funds. For some reason I can gamble them but in order to transfer they have to clear so it will be a couple of days. Then once I do the transfer they review it. Anyway, as soon as it lets me i'll transfer.

vinylmartyr
10-28-2008, 05:55 PM
yeah if you use those e check they have to clear 1st.

I built $100 from $0 on PartyPoker a few years ago. Won one dollar in a free roll then kept building. I hit some very bad luck and lost it all. I guess now that I have actual money to gamble with I will start playing again.

locachica73

I have played a few Horse tourneys but some of the games confuse me. That is the one where you play a different game each time around.

10-30-2008, 01:16 PM
yes.. well there are 5 different games. you play a few rounds of each before moving to the next game.

faxman75
10-31-2008, 10:29 AM
I have put money in Pokerstars on Monday with e-check. It won't let me transfer to Martyr because the funds still have not cleared as he has offered to do the same thing you are offering. So there it is. I have money in poker stars but I can't transfer it anywhere yet. As soon as I am able to I can or if need be I can just wait for the next time you guys play. I didn't think it would be this big of a hassle but apparently my bank sucks.

supersystem huh, I will look into that. I have actually gotten in an argument with a guy because of what I held onto and bet on.

But I will try to follow the poker rules just so you all don't hate me lol.

Phil Hellmuth. That shouldn't be a surprise though. I love big mouths who cause trouble.

jennifer tilly for obvious reasons.

locachica73
10-31-2008, 02:32 PM
I rarely watch poker on tv but a few that I love to watch are the dude that they call the unibomber, he is married or dating jennifer tilly... and the older guy with the long ass hair who wears the cowboy hat. Oh and the black guy that looks like tiger woods.

And Mr Dylanja, since we are neighbors and all, if you ever want to get in on a live game I play all the time at gameday and sport peppers (both on bell road). It is for points through Nationwide Poker. I am currently 41st place in the state WHOOT!!!

Mr. Dylanja
10-31-2008, 02:32 PM

Just because I play by instinct and not "poker rules" doesn't mean I am an idiot I don't think. Considering I damn near always make it to the final table out of 40+ players means I must be doing something right... But hey, if you want to assume females are idiots then who am I to argue.

I'll give you a one-time only free service. Your statement implied men used their brains when playing poker whereas women go with their gut. That's what we call sexism.

locachica73
10-31-2008, 02:43 PM
but I don't compare using your gut instict to being an idiot. If men used their instincts more often instead of worrying so much about the rules then they would probably get further. i.e. when they go on a date and really like the girl but have to wait the alloted time before making the call... just make the fucking call, don't follow the rule book. The same goes with poker and blackjack. I listen to my gut and it usually works out for me.

I thought the points were on top of money?? But yeah you are right, in point games, or play money, everyone plays much much looser. It becomes more about luck unless you are an ultra tight player. Even then you can still get fucked over by someone catching things. No way to bluff people out, someone will always call.

locachica73

oooh.. i didnt know they had such tiny and cheap live tourneys.. where at?

I play at full tilt for the $3 tourneys and I am locachica73 there too.

The live tourneys I play in is through nationwide poker www.pokerplayersinc.com they usually play at local bars, usually about 40 people per game and then they have a big tourney each month and the top 250 from the state are invited. Top prize is either a $1500 buy in to the big state tournament at the casino or $1000 cash and then second prize is a laptop. It is all free and then you earn points along the way... well free except for the beer/drinks you buy.

Actually these people play very serious because your points end up going towards high end prizes. It is just like a tourney on full tilt though, you get $5000 in chips and top 20 players get points, then usually first and second place players for each game gets a gift card for the bar to spend on booze or food. I actually enjoy it alot better then playing online, poker is much funner and realistic if you can see the persons face and talk shit to them at the same time. Although some of the people get under my skin, so I sweet talk the guy running the games to put me at a table with people that don't drive me crazy.

Blinken

im chicken to play live. lol

I was too... The people at the bars are usually pretty easy going for the most part, that happens when you add beer. There are the select few that get pissy but there are rules against that. I did get invited into one of the bigger games at the casino though and that was so stressful, everyone was so serious about it, but most of them bought in and mine was free so I guess that makes sense. I didn't have any fun though so if I were to win the top prize again I would just take the cash, I never want poker to ruin my day and make me angry.

Play with friends at peoples houses to get used to it before going to a Casino. Playing online helps you to learn what people are doing by watching betting paterns not the people. I got alot better in my live games practicing online. Randy did have a point live games are much more exciting, staring someone down when trying to read them or make a difficult call. So much fun.

My first poker tournament was with a bunch of people from work, it was for charity with a $50 buy in. Half the pot went to the charity and the other half was split between first, second, and third. I work in construction so it is mostly guys. I think out of the 4 tables we had there were maybe 4 women. I had a very bad day that day so my poker face was outstanding. I ended up winning 1st place and $500. To this day, 4 years later, guys I work with still give me shit for that. They remember every hand I played. It is awsome. lol

Wheres the beef?
11-02-2008, 12:05 PM
Actually these people play very serious because your points end up going towards high end prizes. It is just like a tourney on full tilt though, you get $5000 in chips and top 20 players get points, then usually first and second place players for each game gets a gift card for the bar to spend on booze or food. I actually enjoy it alot better then playing online, poker is much funner and realistic if you can see the persons face and talk shit to them at the same time. Although some of the people get under my skin, so I sweet talk the guy running the games to put me at a table with people that don't drive me crazy.

Its like Randy already said. You NEED to be there to see peoples and what not. Poker is about people not cards or money.

It helps but playing online you learn to read players bets and betting paterns. It is very effective when you take those skills to live poker tables. There are a lot of subtle tells that you don't pay as much attention to in live poker games. I prefer live over online though.

I got knocked out at a tourney at the Bicycle a couple of weeks ago. I called a guy who pushed with pocket 7's preflop really early, literally like the 10th hand or something. There was a big raise in front of him and 2 callers. I had A's and the flop came 6,5,4,10,8.

faxman75

Cheddar's Cousin
11-29-2008, 08:45 AM
Yeah, that happens more than it should. I've learned to be very patient. It's nearly impossible to bluff someone off a pot.

Also, I mainly play the sit and go tournies. It's a little more disciplined there.

sin213
12-01-2008, 05:02 PM
i guess that makes sense, but i don't have that kind of patience. i do the turbo sit and go tourneys cause i like to keep the action moving. when people can just sit back and wait for the best hands, you could play forever just to win.

i've hit a rough patch recently and my balance has dipped for the first time in a while. i just realized that i've been going on the same $100 deposit for over 6 months now. And I play semi regularly.

i can't play razz to save my life. it's the main reason i shy away from HORSE tourneys.

i just stick with hold em for the most part and play some omaha when i'm bored of hold em.
