Ok, I learned the hard way when I moved up from NL10 to NL25 that bets actualy mean hands at NL25. Most of the time, that is. So he bets the flop, you raise, he calls - then he leads the...

Re: How can I explain to ppl that online sites are not rigged?

I recently heard an argument that I thought was pretty good, which is that if you were going to rig the games you'd want to make sure you could hide the evidence.

But there are players out there...

Re: bankroll

The 20 buyin guideline can be a bugger. I moved up to NL25, went up 2 BI and then down 5 more [I went stoopid], so now I need to win back 7.5 BI @ NL10 just to scramble back to where I was again.

Re: How to stop Overplaying TPTK?

This confuses me too! And if you do put someone on a draw should you be putting in pot size bets to deny them odds or exercise pot control as TP really isn't a big enough hand to justify a big pot?...
