If you all MUST know, I started this because I have a newborn and it is impossible to focus on a long PL session because of him as well as lack of focus due to less sleep. It is still in the experimental stages. It is not for someone who tilts easily.

If short-stacking helps bring more players to the higher limits then I think it is a good thing, the part I object to rat-holing. But that is a part of any NL game. Truth is because hands run so close together in 08, it is a better game for short stacking then HE, but if the site wants to encourage people to really play they should take stonger measures to prevent rat-holing.

Those of you who play NLO8 regularly, what are these people open pushing 60%-150% stacks with? Any AAxx? I have seen three different "average-stats" type players with full stacks open push.

Usually people with a full stack aren't pushing without AA if that is what you are asking... since if someone limped, or has a good AA hand behind them, and they shove they could end up being quite a dog for their whole stack.

This makes sense -- I remember when you played the MTTs and I don't see you there any more. I thought it was just that the stakes weren't interesting.

I'm more a rec player than you, but I've had the same problem -- it's hard to focus with a newborn. See left.
