Yeah, I think it was supposed to be 23: the 13 on the table, plus 5 for each of us. Didn't matter. I give no free cards when I have the nuts.

Okay, no 24 hour time limit this holiday weekend (I won't be able to check much). It will start back up Tuesday @ 8am. Have a good weekend.

I'd suggest a no-brainer 24hr amendment that when a player is facing an absurdly small raise and no person would ever reasonably fold that perhaps the default should be a call.

I mean, shemp (I hope) would have never folded to my 3 chip raise there....

I would not have folded. But it's my own stupid fault for forgetting to check in. That and I was sick for several hours, but I could still have gotten to the computer. The way things have been going, you probably would have beaten my QQ anyway.

Put me back in for next hand please.

Well, "absurdly small" and "reasonable fold" will need to be defined. I will not be subjective about it.

:D Sorry. I'm in the field using a very sketchy internet connection.

Go back to sleep.

punchdrunk,

I'm trying to send my discard, but it's just lounging in the Outbox.

I think it just looks that way. I got your discard at 7:39am or thereabouts. I've noticed when I send hands to players they stay in my Outbox like they haven't been sent, but players are still getting them quickly.

Anyway, I got it, and I'm awaiting swellman.

I sent you my discard as well about 10 minutes ago. Sorry for the delay.

A bad internet connection brings no joy. :(

If blinds are 2 and 4 wouldn't the max raise be 10 and the max bet 14?

I believe that when the preflop bet got to me, the pot was 10.

I then raised the BB by 6, making the pot 18.

lofgeornost then went all in, a bet less than 18.
