Anyone play besides Ken and I? We should get an online game going.

yeahhh!

i've had a regular home game going for about five or six years. we play every sunday. and in the past year i've started playing in a monthly tourney here in nyc -- $50 buy-in, with an average of 50 players per tourney. last week i finished fourth, my best so far. before that: sixth and tenth.

Jams Murphy (ystrickler), Wednesday, 9 February 2005 17:25 (fourteen years ago) link

i played in a tourney two weeks ago $60 buy in. 40 guys. I came in 15th, got my AK busted with jacks. Played a small game last saturday and won $200 from my friends. I play a lot online...pokerroom.com username letdown08 if your ever looking to play a game.

Big Baby Bingo (Chris V), Wednesday, 9 February 2005 17:26 (fourteen years ago) link

I have a weekly card game that meets regularly for six months, falls apart for six months, gets back together for six months, etc.

I'm in an off-period right now, and I kinda miss it.

while i was out of work for last month i played so much online i thought i was going to have to call gamblers anon. luckily pokerroom.com has a nice feature that you can set your monthly, weekly or daily deposit limits. which i use.

Big Baby Bingo (Chris V), Wednesday, 9 February 2005 17:36 (fourteen years ago) link

i've had a really good winning streak last month and so i haven't had to make any deposits for a while.. although i've only played pussy $5 games with amateurs (as opposed to amateurist).

ken c (ken c), Wednesday, 9 February 2005 17:39 (fourteen years ago) link

unfortunately (or fortunately) my bank doesn't let me make deposits into pokerroom, so i'm strictly a play money player.

Jams Murphy (ystrickler), Wednesday, 9 February 2005 17:40 (fourteen years ago) link

i got my clock cleaned last month on pokerroom. i had a few good streaks going for a few days and then all of the sudden i get stuck against fools who have no idea how to play and take me out with middle pairs. never fails.

Big Baby Bingo (Chris V), Wednesday, 9 February 2005 17:43 (fourteen years ago) link

i yahoo poker sometimes. used to play with friends for small time bucks. sort of looking to start up again

come on sock it to me, Wednesday, 9 February 2005 17:46 (fourteen years ago) link

so if we do play are we going to settle on pokerroom then?

this would leave jams murphy out though unless we go for just play money games.

POKER!!!!!

David R. (popshots75`), Wednesday, 9 February 2005 18:01 (fourteen years ago) link

I've been back on the poker wagon during the last few months. We play cheap $5 games, which is great for me since I can't afford higher stakes poker right now (er, did I say "afford", of course that's not what I meant because I WIN WIN WIN, I don't have to "afford" anything ... um, yeah).

MindInRewind (Barry Bruner), Wednesday, 9 February 2005 18:03 (fourteen years ago) link

I'd be up for joining in $5 games, if it gets sorted.

Yeah, once details are all figured out, I will TOTALLY suck you guys out. I'll be the noob, everyone else can be Phil Helmuth (sic).

David R. (popshots75`), Wednesday, 9 February 2005 18:29 (fourteen years ago) link

I will so do this. I've been missing my biweekly game ev' since I moved to New York (altho these $50 tourneys sound worth checking out, if they're ever on a day I'm not working and can convince my wife she should babysit so I can go gamble).

I'm curious, what does everybody play? It seems like Texas hold'em is everyone's default (maybe partly because that's what they play on TV), but I like 5- and 7-stud too.

gypsy mothra (gypsy mothra), Wednesday, 9 February 2005 18:33 (fourteen years ago) link

99.9% Hold'em, though I'm fine w/ 5 & 7-card. A few times, someone at my real-life irregularly-schedule poker hoe-downs would try to start up w/ Omaha - after 10 minutes of that, everyone went home.

Big Baby Bingo (Chris V), Wednesday, 9 February 2005 18:50 (fourteen years ago) link

gypsy if you wanna play an in-person game, you are officially invited to join mine. we have about six players, with a buy-in typically of $15 or $20. we play a mix of hold 'em, omaha 8, seven-card stud, a few wild card games and anaconda. mucho fun. email me if you're interested.

Jams Murphy (ystrickler), Wednesday, 9 February 2005 18:54 (fourteen years ago) link

I play in two semiregular games, and have been playing cards my whole life. I don't believe in gambling, but I make an exception for low stakes poker.

I'm up for this after I get past work deadlines in a couple of weeks. My parents used to let me sit in with their games when I was a kid, mostly 5- and 7-card stud, but every now and then they'd play something called Between the Sheets (aka Mexican Sweat) for variety. That could get really hairy really quick, and once I won a $60 pot and was told to go watch tv.

nxd, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 15:00 (two years ago) link

I'm still going on Ignition. I kinda like anon poker since it means I don't have to dick around with HUDs and I don't have a whole lot of time to study opponent tendencies and w/e. So its nice to just not have to do it. Plus the playerbase seems pretty soft. Downside is the software is absolutely atrocious.

frogbs, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 16:19 (two years ago) link

ha I think we're very different players, don't use any software and just go on betting patterns online, hold em is hard for it - think my only two big tournament wins this past year have been in horse and badugi

nxd, Tuesday, 6 June 2017 22:35 (two years ago) link

honestly I hated having to deal with a HUD and a database. must've been how baseball players must've felt in the 90's - it just seemed like cheating to me, but I knew I was leaving a lot of money on the table if I didn't get one. it definitely helped my game a lot, to the point where I wished I had gotten one years ago. but I would much prefer the world where no one gets to use it.

those HORSE tournaments are the thing I miss most about Stars. Ignition offers PLO and PLO8 but that's it. and there are not a whole lot of players there. if Stars came back I'd probably stay the hell away from Hold Em, the players there are just way too good these days

some pretty crazy shit going on here

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/29/news-views-gossip/mike-postle-cheating-allegations-1753388/

basically, there is this guy named Mike Postle who plays on a 5/5 streamed game at Stones, who has been running insanely good, cashing at a rate of 220bb/100 (for reference, in a live game 15bb/100 is generally seen as "crushing it"). this has gone on for nearly 2 years before someone noticed something very strange about the way the guy was playing. he is consistently taking lines that are absolutely ridiculous - he plays nearly 50% of his hands (which no winning player can do), takes the correct river line 100% of the line (lol) and makes the most ridiculous bluffs, which just so happen to be correct every single time. a number of his plays make absolutely 0 sense unless you happen to know your opponent's exact hands. the theory is that this guy somehow got access to the RFID info that is broadcasting these hands. probably could have gotten away with it too but he makes it so incredibly blatant.

frogbs, Wednesday, 2 October 2019 12:58 (two weeks ago) link

k3vin k., Thursday, 3 October 2019 02:40 (two weeks ago) link

ha watched a montage of his hits and it's pretty ridic

nxd, Thursday, 3 October 2019 10:01 (two weeks ago) link

I mean the numbers speak for themselves - he's winning at a greater rate than Potripper (the Absolute Poker superuser who stole a ton of money from pros), he never screws up on the river, he wins nearly every single session (EXCEPT when the dude who runs Stones is in Vegas? WTF?!?) - the odds of someone going on this kind of streak is like, hitting the Powerball 5 times in a row. Especially playing the way he does.

What gets me about this is not just the obvious stuff - like, knowing when you're beat and when you can bluff obviously is worth a ton of money in itself, but he takes it a step further and takes lines that make zero sense UNLESS you knew exactly what your opponents are holding. The AK vs AK vs 54 3 way all in hand with Moneymaker is a good example of that, even if his "expertise" in live reads tells him his opponents don't have a premium hand there, there's still a good chance they show up with something like, I dunno, pocket 8s, which has you completely crushed. It's just so dumb. And there are dozens of examples like that.

IMO the most damning hand is the 95o one. It's a 3-way pot and he somehow gets 120 BBs in with 95o against an all-in player with 64 and another player with AQ, who he is quite deep against. The flop comes J93 and he open shoves 600bbs into the dry side pot. It is one of the most spewy plays I have ever seen and the only way it makes sense is if you somehow knew that the all-in player couldn't beat 9 high and that the other player did not have 99+ (and, even knowing this, it still might not be a profitable move!) But there's more - so he bets the AQ out and they run out the board. The turn card is a 7, which gives the 64 an inside straight draw. You clearly hear Postle say, "oh shit!" - even though the cards have not been flipped up yet. It's pretty much case closed based on that one hand alone.

frogbs, Thursday, 3 October 2019 13:57 (two weeks ago) link

The best clip of his I've seen so far is the one where he bets $5,000 with A2 on a QQ45 flop in an uncapped 1/3 game. Nothing suspicious there.

I also like how, in his defense, people have started claiming that the RFID readers at their table make mistakes, so his non-showdown hands aren't necessarily what's displayed on the livestream - which, sure, if you believe that a mistaken RFID value is going to be something like "seven of clubs" instead of a UUID (or more likely something SHA-1 encrypted).

the portentous pepper (govern yourself accordingly), Thursday, 3 October 2019 17:23 (two weeks ago) link

Although given the fact that what's going on here almost definitely involves somebody intercepting RFID signals, probably not SHA-1, lol

— Matt Berkey (@berkey11) October 1, 2019

the portentous pepper (govern yourself accordingly), Thursday, 3 October 2019 17:28 (two weeks ago) link

You might be giving him too much credit - he seems to have an inside man and if so it is almost certainly that Justin Kuraitis dude who runs the room (during the 2 weeks Justin was in Vegas he played a much different style and actually lost a few sessions). some plausible theories I've heard is that he has access to the actual live stream on his phone or that he's got something stuffed in his hat that is telling him the hands via Bluetooth. someone noticed that his hat while he's playing is a different shape than his hat when he's doing interviews. also worth mentioning that he always seems to sit in seats 1 or 2 which are conveniently the ones that are on-camera the least.

the "RFID error" thing is curious - during that TT vs 88 hand where they both have full houses (and Mike somehow only loses about 200 bucks), apparently it was Justin himself who informed the commentators that he actually had 87, which makes his play a lot more sensible. more than that I think the commentators are speculating it's getting the cards wrong because his play makes no sense otherwise. (unless, y'know, he's cheating)

frogbs, Thursday, 3 October 2019 18:04 (two weeks ago) link

producer of Live at the Bike makes an interesting point:

This just occurred to me so I have to speak up

Shows are produced live & air on delay, so the booth can never know that someone’s cards are wrong. Unless a player says so later, which would be 15/30 min later after it airs. How can the graphics person know cards are wrong live?

— Ryan Feldman (@TheRyanFeldman) October 3, 2019

This tells me someone working in the booth forced them to change the cards for some reason while producing the hand. Player can never tell booth during the hand. Once it’s produced live, you can’t change the graphics when it airs. Poker GFX is pushed thru OBS live. Impossible.

— Ryan Feldman (@TheRyanFeldman) October 3, 2019

This is regarding the 69o hand that was mysteriously changed to 89ss during the hand. I work on a broadcast that is produced the same way, so I know this is impossible. Why would someone change the cards while the hand is happening? Huge red flag

— Ryan Feldman (@TheRyanFeldman) October 3, 2019

Literally zero reason, zero chance. I can’t think of any reason. We might suspect something is weird about a hand but we would never change the cards. Only if cards are shown down and the camera sees the cards are wrong, then we can edit it before clearing the graphics.

many xps yeah the 95o one was the nail in the coffin for me. calling pre was bad enough but to lead jam the flop there is ridiculous

k3vin k., Thursday, 3 October 2019 23:57 (two weeks ago) link

effectively revealing that you know he has 64 before the cards are even flipped up is pretty damning too. he seems to forget that he's not supposed to know what his opponent's cards are yet.

its just disappointing that the board didn't come completely blank because I'm curious what he would have done. would he be shameless enough to bluff at a dry side pot and win with 9 high?

k3vin k., Friday, 4 October 2019 06:50 (two weeks ago) link

Assuming no actual, physical evidence comes out (and nobody rolls over) I wonder if there's any chance this dude gets prosecuted. or if Stones has any liability to the players cheated.

I tried to explain this to a friend yesterday. It is like if there was a golfer who, for the last 2 years, was constantly shooting 40s. But he can only do it at this one course, which strangely is the only place he ever plays. Despite being apparently the greatest golfer in history, he has never given any thought to going pro. Not only that but his clubs are old and his swing looks like shit. He takes weird angles that no professional golfer would even think about. The course is set up so that, conceivably, someone could quickly swap out a ball and move it way closer to the pin. No one's been caught doing that, but drives keep magically appearing on the green. Every time. He also happens to be good friends with the owner of the course. And for whatever reason, whenever the owner's gone, he suddenly becomes average.

Now you know this guy is 100% cheating. No doubt about it. But do you have any evidence? If you lost a ton of money betting with this guy, is there any real recourse for you? Is "no one could possibly be this good" a valid argument in a court of law?

first hand in that vid where he 4-bets the turn on QQ43 with A2 is also disgusting. the only person I've seen who even attempts stuff like that is Phil Ivey. only difference is that Ivey is sometimes wrong, and he doesn't rebluff all-in to give his opponent nearly 5:1 on a call. I know this is all hindsight but Postle's body language is just so off in that hand. He leans back, pretends to agonize, says "what do you HAVE!?" several times, makes that dumb smirk like, WELP LETS GAMBOOOOL while shoving the rest of his stack in. I've never seen another poker player act like that while in a big hand.
