Re: Welcome Tom Bayes

Don't worry, I'm sure the regulars will enjoy flailing you for any real or imagined flaws in triple draw /images/graemlins/smile.gif

Don't you have enough to worry about with the Politics forum?

Re: Welcome Tom Bayes

Thanks for the welcome. I'm not sure if I know what I did to myself, agreeing to be a mod. Fortunately Other Poker is pretty low traffic and has less flaming that most forums...

Re: breaking a fullhouse in 5cd to get more action

I've never broken a full house and I think the scenario that bigpooch describes is about the only time to do it. If these are the Stars tourneys that you are talking about, there are enough bozos...

Re: draw live

Sorry, you'll need a time machine to play 5CD in a B&M cardroom. In 2007, it's the internet or home game for draw, at least in the U.S. Maybe live draw games exist somewhere in Europe?

Re: 5CD MTT: End game strategy

It's important to keep a viable stack in these games. To be able to play more than a push-n-pray game, you need to be able to be in a position to make a normal sized raise, have enough of a stack to...

Re: WSOP PLO8 Level of Competition?

I'm almost positive this is the first time PLO/8 has ever been spread in the WSOP. I'm just guessing, but most of the live tournament circuit regulars would have very little experience playing this...

Re: A couple of new draw tournaments at PokerStars

The $1.10 limit draw at 14:30 is daily starting tomorrow. As far as the $8.80 Double Chance, yesterday was the only time I've ever seen it run or be scheduled for draw. I think Stars had been...

A couple of new draw tournaments at PokerStars

This afternoon at 14:15 ET, PokerStars will be running a $8+0.80 "Double Chance" PL 5CD tourney. Apparently the gimmick is that there is one rebuy available, which cannot be used unless you go...

Re: pl 5cd SnG HU line check

I'm guessing he showed you higher trips, since most players aren't calling your preflop raise with a pair lower than yours. If you are lucky, he made aces up or kings up.

A few PLO/8 Tournament hands

Here are two hands I'm wondering about from a $2 PLO/8 on Stars.

Reads: Hand #1-Little time at this table, I think they were generally passive.

Hand #2-MP1 is solid/good player, MP2 is LAGgy.

I'm American. I really didn't play a lot on Planet as PokerStars already gets most of my action. I'd seen several of the old Planet draw game regulars on Stars over the past few months.
