If this has been addressed already...I apologize, because it probably means I'm as guilty as a lot of others here.
But what rankles me is seeing a reply to a post, and then 10 replies later somebody says the same thing. I try to read what has already been said before I post something so as not to bore everyone with redundancy. I know I've been guilty of hit and run...just putting in my 2 cents worth with comment number 40 without having read all of the previous replies, coming back the next day and reading all of the comments and seeing what I posted had pretty much been covered; but I do try not to do that.,,,Just Sayin'!
I myself haven't played much in the way of live tournaments, and was under the impression that the rules of play werer the same everywhere. Definitely needed especially for the pros who travel the world and play. I liked the examples mentioned in the article (ie be at your seat when first card is dealt, or u are out of the hand), and when I took a look at the link listing the wanted 'universal' rules, it made a lot of sense.
I like to mix it up when I play poker, and this occasionally takes me down the road to failure, especially when I'm slow playing a hand, like pp AA for example. Some times I'll make a large raise and play it from there. But when I decide to limp in and the flop comes suited, or connectors, or any pair on the flop, more often than not I get myself screwed... Especially if I'm playing loose and have fallen in love with the aces and am too weak to lay em down when faced with a big bet.
So I guess what imma trying to say is that if you decide to slow play a hand like that, you need to incorporate as part of that move the willingness to let it go when u could very possibly be beat. Anyone else, especially u loose aggressive players, have that problem too?
I don't know if anyone else here experiences the 'blues' this time of year, but I do...and have for the past 10 or 15 years. And it doesn't really matter if It's coming off a great year of good times with friends and family...It just grabs me and pulls me down. As for myself, I DO know what triggers it, and am fighting an ongoing battle, but it just pervades every aspect of my life when it's going on. So, I guess it's just 'one day at a time'!!
So...from a Grinch...Happy Holidays to all of you and many more to come.
Is there a link on Carbon that shows tickets awarded to our account? I know I get a popup that tells me I've been awarded a ticket, but apparently they don't expire automatically. Now today, for instance, if the tickets had been credited late, I would have missed it and not registered in time. I just don't understand how anyone could have live tickets for the trny floating around that work on the current trny, or the balls to use it knowing the consequences!
If I find that I missed registering on carbon, do I need to try reaching support there to delete any bogus ticket floating around on my account?
Last week My browser, Windows Explorer, stopped loading properly...the problem persists today, so I switched to Google Chrome. Loads fine. I came here to Poker.org and made a few comments and posted a blog. The next day I returned here and discovered that none of what I had posted was showing. Still don't know why. So I switched browsers again, to Firefox. This works well and I can once again post.
So I have a couple of questions. First, anyone know of a fix for explorer? I use Windows 7 Pro. I re-download explorer but nothing changed. Second, for Google Chrome users, are any of u having problems here on .org? And if so how to change settings to make compatible would be nice to know.
Hi to everyone I know already and all of the rest of u!
I've been playing poker since I was 10 years old (Let's just say over 50 years). I started out playing penny ante in my parents weekend game. I was already a card junkie and had watched them playing for quite some time. One weekend when they were short on players they let me sit in, and seeing as they were drinkin' all day, and a penny meant a lot to me back then, I cleaned up!
So it's kind of like coming home again, here. I know quite a few of u already...and how u play. But my biggest advantage is so many of u THINK u know how I play. But then again, maybe u don't!
Good luck in the league everyone!
