Re: Beat: Sold fantasy season for Brett Favre

As a Bears fan, I'd love for you to pick up all the best players on the Giants, Lions, Vikings, Eagles, Redskins, and Saints. Is that too much to ask?

Re: When should blinds go up?

Well, you can change two 0.25 for five 0.10. If they have more than 100 of one color, they can make the smallest amoun 0.05 and start with a larger number of those. Otherwise, you're constantly...

Re: When should blinds go up?

1.5% means that the average stack for HU is just above 30BB and 2% means that the average stack is 25BB. Unless you have two very good and evenly matched players, they aren't going to last 20...

Re: When should blinds go up?

There is no absolute "right" way to do it, but two guidelines I always use in setting a tournament structure:

Thanks for everyone's tips.

Re: Prove the rule of two

The rule of two is used for outs after the turn.

After the turn, you have seen your two cards plus the four cards on the board so there are 46 cards you haven't seen.

If you have 1 out, then...

Re: LAUGH: WPT Foxwoods Day 1
