Pay Attention the the game!

I have been in the poker business for a very long time now and thought I have seen or heard it all by now, but then here comes a new one.

Gun Control Talk

Gun Control

Ok now this Gun control talk is getting so way out of hand.  I have just seen where this guy said that all gun owners need to be treated like sex offenders, now this really makes me sick. I heard the same thing before from our govt that poker players are in the same category as child molester.  For reals people, let’s get a grip on life here now. If I am a gun owner, which is my right and you want to put me in the same category as sex an offender then you as…

Re-Buy vs Non-Rebuy Tournaments







ReBuy vs Non-Rebuy Tournaments

 

 Well now, lets talk about this for a bit. There is a lot of talk about having ReBuys in a

tournament, what do you think? I think a limited amount is ok, like say 1 or 2

is ok, for that time when you think or do have the best hand going in pre flop

and get suked out on. Like going all in preflop with the good old pocket aces

"Your First-Time Homebuyers Credit, which you received for a home purchased in 2008, is like an interest-free loan that you'll repay over the next 15 years. You'll make your first payment in 2011."

Was this Hand played well or would you of played it different?

Was this hand played well?

So here is the hand:
