    The Official Poker Thread

    I have yet to find a place to discuss poker with anyone.

    Hopefully we can discuss it here.

    Here we can talk about the WSOP, WPT, PPT, and any other poker tourney's.

    Share secrets, bad beats you got, bad beats you gave, home games, strategy's, etc.

    Lets get this thing going.

    My brother and I took the day off to take my dad to a poker tournament. He generally has very little idea what he's doing but of course he is killing it right now. I thought I could get a hold on his play but I'm down to pretty few blinds and he's probably a big reason for it. He's loving it, though.

    I enjoy the limited commentary.. gives you a better feel of how the players are going about themselves.. for example there was a hand Monday where Tiller bluffed Lederer and showed it, then he said something like "let me win this one and I'll win the next one" and Lederer folded and Tiller showed.

    Then a couple nights later (I realize they just play it consecutively and the show is broken up into pieces), Tiller had a boat on the flop said the same thing during a hand with Elezra because he knew Elezra had heard him say his line earlier, but Elezra didn't bite and folded his hand after some major preflop raising going on.

    Then they had like a 3-4 minute talk on why that should have worked etc etc

    I just thought it was interesting.

    Kaplan, Antonius, Lederer, Elezra, Brunson, and Tiller

    Good stuff.

    Yeah, i'm getting a little tired of the themes they try to do with their crappy 6-man tournament. Phil Ivey needs to play a lot more often. I'm tired of seeing Mike Matusow get pwned.

    Cash games are much better for TV than tournaments. With tournaments, it's just "showdown" poker usually with just 2 players, one of them all-in. It becomes kind of lame at that point. Cash games have the huge advantage that you can really watch and study the way they play hands. It's just a much more pure form of poker and that translates much better to television.

    Yes, it was also widely watched and enjoyed by the masses. Stupid that they don't do it more often.

    I agree that they should turn it into a cash game. They have pretty much every other concept of the cash game outside of straight blinds and winner take all.

    There was a week where they did host a cash game, and all the top pros went to play. That was an awesome week.

    Speaking of which, new episodes of High Stakes are back 3/1. I'm pretty damn excited.

    If it's a high stakes game with top pros, it is usually interesting. I happen to think they should just make it a cash game and capitalize on that. High Stakes Poker is a vastly superior product to PAD, IMO.

    I'm a low limit grinder. Trying to turn $100 into a real roll. Started off with $2 SNG's, and I'm up to $5 now. Also play some 5/10 cent NLHE (usually capped). I estimate I've missed out on $75-100 in rakeback over the last 4-5 months, even at those low stakes.
