I missed the stream, and never met either player, but he had no chance. After he got caught colluding in a satellite and attempted to justify it, I knew exactly how this would go.

Grudge matches are good for the game. I almost issued a challenge to some donk at my Omaha table today. He didn't like the way I played :kd :3s :7h :4c and took it very personally.


Was that Omaha Hi-Lo, or just Omaha?

The game was hi/low. In the actual hand, the low missed.

It's an easy game if you know your opponent: see a lot of flops, hold/scoop whenever possible, watch them tilt, profit.

It is a small community. There's four of us who give constant action. There's ten players who might show up once a day. The rest are just random.
The freerolls get 3 tables now. Of course your odds were better when they only got one table.
They misplaced 14000 coin last night so I'm trying to find that now. Support can be annoying.

Edit: ok they are returning my chips. What's your shibe mame?

A lot has changed since then. Now it feels like real money. There are more games but the pots are smaller.

I have loved the Grosvenor Victoria on Edgware Road for almost 20 years. Just love how the big game and the one-pound games are all in the same room, so you really feel like you're part of the action. Love the atmosphere, accommodating staff, you can buy-in with USD if you don't have enough Sterling on you... just great. I'm sure there are other card rooms that may even have "better" games, and I know some people swear by the Empire casino in Leicester Square, but there's nothing like the Vic.

what i dont understand about online poker is the skill in reading someones bluff, you have to be able to see who youre playing to use any kinda instinct, how are these guys just playing online like luck of the draw?

reminds me of my fantasy baseball team...

aww i miss those guys. its funny how time goes by...a season goes on, the leaves change, and i keep forgetting im playing. i should really look them up, get all the guys together for a lineup adjustment

There's what you (and online cardrooms) might call massive, sustained cheating. Online poker is online, and as such, the history of played hands is available for data harvesting. Players can obtain (by collecting themselves or by buying) hand history data that they place in a database, giving themselves records of what decisions opponents have made under different game situations. Some players use this database during a game to look up a conspicuous opponent's hand history and thereby guess with way better than 50-50 accuracy if an opponent should be raised or folded under such-and-such situation.

Much of the accuracy comes from the fact that most players tend to not mix up their play style and the convenient fact that there are really only four styles: loose-aggressive, loose-passive, tight-aggressive and tight-passive.

These databases aren't in use by a majority. If they were, then their predictive value would be diminished -- if everybody's looking up hand histories, then their own play style becomes necessarily less predictable because their decisions are reactions to a lookup on a table, which would mix up their own play style to the point of eliminating play style as a predictive to be used against themselves.

Another reason they're not in wide use is because most people find probability math and software stressful and intimidating and avoid these when they're trying to have a good time.

Here and there, players have been suspended from certain online cardrooms for using hand history data tools, but there's no serious sanction for the industry to apply nor any opportunity to end hand history collection because there's no reliable way to limit or control the hand history: you can't conduct the game online without hand history appearing on every player's screen, and once it's there, it can be collected using one software technique or another. The more one plays, the more data one collects about more opponents and the greater the edge one piles up.
