Default Paul B (8:06:55 PM): Official STTF December Thread: General Discussion

1. convert your [censored] hands it takes like two seconds and makes it much easier for everyone.

2. Post interesting hands i.e. Playing HU floating the turn with 9 high no draw to set up a river bluff= sexy. Losing a 60/40= who [censored] cares.

3. Posting about variance is fine on a few conditions
1. It includes stats/graphs over a meaningful sample not ZOMG I run bad.
2. If it's a small sample but it's ridiculous run it's acceptable
3. If your name is Indiana you may not post about variance, bad beats or being fabulously wealthy

But can we please get all the mundane beats that all of has have had of times out of the thread nobody [censored] cares. To paraphrase, stop being whiney little biatches.

in no way does this qualify as a stop in go, as there was no 'stop'

A stop n go is where you commit yourself by calling preflop and then push any flop in the hope for more fold equity then just shoving over preflop. This explains it pretty well.

You would be surprised what donks are capable of...

So I log onto Stars and get this message:

"Internal error (71/1021), please contact support blah blah"

I send an email saying WTF?
I get this back:

Hello Michael,

Thank you for emailing us.

Please refer to this email that was sent to you in regards to this matter:

************************************************** *************************
Please notice that if your birthday is on 12/05/89, this will mean you are
not yet 18 years old. Been this the legal age to play in our site, we have
frozen your account until 12/5/07.

Please email us back in 4 days so we can discuss re-opening your account.
************************************************** *************************

Should you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to let us
know.

Regards,

Juan
PokerStars Support Team

Apparently, I've been playing underage on their site for over two years and they are waiting 4 days before my 18th B-day to let me know. BTW, I never recieved the above email, and I'm obviously WAAAY over 18 already.

So, I repeat: "WTF?"
