Paul B (8:06:55 PM): Official STTF December Thread: General Discussion
 
1. convert your [censored] hands it takes like two seconds and makes it much easier for everyone.

2. Post interesting hands i.e. Playing HU floating the turn with 9 high no draw to set up a river bluff= sexy. Losing a 60/40= who [censored] cares.

3. Posting about variance is fine on a few conditions
1. It includes stats/graphs over a meaningful sample not ZOMG I run bad.
2. If it's a small sample but it's ridiculous run it's acceptable
3. If your name is Indiana you may not post about variance, bad beats or being fabulously wealthy

But can we please get all the mundane beats that all of has have had of times out of the thread nobody [censored] cares. To paraphrase, stop being whiney little biatches.

What is this stop n go and how do i use it?

IFoldPktOnes 12-01-2007 12:56 AM

Re: Paul B (8:06:55 PM): Official STTF December Thread: General Discus
 
A stop n go is where you commit yourself by calling preflop and then push any flop in the hope for more fold equity then just shoving over preflop. This explains it pretty well.

You would be surprised what donks are capable of...

That's not really a good example. You need to be first to act after the flop.

Best part of the stop n go portion of the "book".
"Stop-and-gos are rare, and when they do arise, win very small amounts of equity because most of the time the result is identical to moving in preflop. The amount of discussion this play has generated online is way out of proportion to its value. If you are not already an advanced player, forget about stop-and-gos and concentrate on developing flawless basic skills. Once you have mastered the basics, it makes sense to add at least the risk-free stop-and-gos (such as the 22 example in the paragraph above) to your repertoire."

When you are old you can sneak into movies with impunity. My wife and I did tonight and we were busted. When the 17-20 yo asked if we had tickets for that movie I just said "no, we just wanted to see a bit of it." She wasn't up for kicking us out and just said OK.

Sippin I was happy to see that your Stars avatar is a picture of Roger Bart, the actor who played Snoopy in the Broadway revival of "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown" and won a Tony for it. He also starred in Desperate Housewives and is the angry guy in the American Gangster trailer who yells that no way could a black guy have done more than the mafia has done.

Kudos.

Damn Stars went from no regs and stuff loading to no anybody and nothing loading.

Luckiest poker thing about suzzer: won 15-20 MTTs, never finished 2nd.

Unluckiest poker thing about suzzer: played over my head about 30 times, lost horribly 25 of them, broke even the other 5. Just saw a bunch of $225s with no one on them, been running good, said what the heck. Didn't make it past level 5 in my first 9 out of 12. Bubbled in the $315 after several shorties survived dominated hands on their allins. Fun.

Hello Michael,

Thank you for emailing us.

Please refer to this email that was sent to you in regards to this matter:

************************************************** *************************
Please notice that if your birthday is on 12/05/89, this will mean you are

Apparently, I've been playing underage on their site for over two years and they are waiting 4 days before my 18th B-day to let me know. BTW, I never recieved the above email, and I'm obviously WAAAY over 18 already.

So, I repeat: "WTF?"
