I'm obviously no where near baller as you guys, but I was playing 2NL (Im basically busto, but anyways) this hand came up:

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.02 BB (6 handed) Poker Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: 2+2 Forums)

CO ($1)
Button ($2.96)

UTG ($9.32)
MP ($1.97)

Preflop: Hero is BB with 9[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 9[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img]. CO posts a blind of $0.02.
UTG calls $0.02, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, CO (poster) checks, Button calls $0.02, <font color="#CC3333">SB raises to $0.36</font>, Hero calls $0.34, UTG folds, CO folds, Button folds.

Flop: ($0.78) 2[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 6[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">SB bets $0.76</font>,
Hero says: Your KK is no good here <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to $1.93</font>, SB calls $1.17.

Turn: ($4.64) T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

River: ($4.64) 2[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>

After reading about Jay.'s mentoring program and specifically the private forum aspect of it, I'm beginning to think this is really the way of the future. I mean it exists partially in IRC and AIM conversations (and may even exist in private forum form for all I know), but not quite fully fledged I don't think.

I have no idea how the logistics of such a thing would work though. I mean I know how to create a private, protected forum and all that jazz but both selection criteria, who does the selection, and how to ensure people are actually posting and being beneficial to the community as a whole are huge problems.

I've long been a believer in a community where everyone shares equally being a great way to improve your poker game - I think the old Mid-High Short-Handed Limit forum a few years back had some of the best poker discussion and taught me more than anything I've done since - but that just isn't becoming feasible in a large public forum where people can read and not contribute; it is causing all of the really good players to not want to share their true thoughts with othersr.

Now I know everyone is thinking F U Metetron you don't give anything back to MSNL and I agree with you. I used to contribute a ton to MH-HUSH back in the day, but I just can't see the incentive to post my biggest secrets and thoughts about poker on 2+2 anymore. And I'm most definitely not the only one. I've talked to some other very good MSNL/HSNL players about this and they agree that they don't see a point in telling the world everything in such a highly competitive game as poker.

But they do see the benefits of a small, tight-knit community sharing everything with each other and bouncing new ideas off of other highly skilled poker players.


There really isn't a point to this post, just a general observation and something I've been thinking about for the last few days. I'm not saying I'm going to create a private forum soon or that I should even be the man to do it, but I definitely can see this happening in the the not too distant future by someone. I guess I'm curious on other's thoughts on this.
