2006 Poker Challenge discussion and trash talking thread

Post by RCC »

I didn't say anything both not to jam up the first hand and no big deal...

There was a raise to 200, which is a raise of 150.

Then a re-raise to 300, which is a raise of 100.

All raises must be at least the amount of the big blind or any previous action (bet or raise), whichever is smaller.

Legally, Ny's reraise would have to be 150, or "to 350." A 50 chip difference is no big deal though... After the flop comes out it's over and done and in the archives...

I missed this. Blame it on a green dealer.

Will try to be more diligent as we proceed.

I missed that particular nuance of the rules. Mea culpa.

2 weeks without internet access

Post by swellman »

Folks,

I am going on the road 15 Feb - 1 Mar.

I was planning on bringing a laptop with me, but just learned that I will not have reliable access to the internet on this particular trip due to reasons beyond my control.

Please be patient during this time. I will make every effort to check in and keep things moving, but no guarantees.

This should be my only loss of connectivity in 2006.

If people prefer, we can do one of the following:

- take a 2 week hiatus
- name a substitute dealer (likely just one hand)


The alternative is to just suffer through my slow dealing over the next two weeks.

Let me know. Any volunteers for a substitute dealer?

Sorry to cause problems so early in the tournament! :AwShucksBlush:

I don't suppose a player can volunteer to deal ;)


I say we just do the best you can and we be patient. I also say it's your call and if it is going to cause you to stress while on the road (I hope it's a vacation) then call a hiatus.

In other words, I'm easy. Cheap too. Anyone want ot buy me a drink?

Quite alright for the dealer to call a break.

What you could so is suspend the 24 hour rule for this time and just update when you can.

Or... just leave it for two weeks. I had a few long weekends last year (in fact I'm gone March 1-6 for ATLARGE again this year)

I vote we just play the hands as swellman is available, rather than take a break, and suspend the 24 hour rule as per RCCs suggestion.

whatever works best for you, swellman. if it's just too difficult to do this while you're on the road or especially if you're on vacation and want to get away from computers (trust me i understand), then we can take a break.

I don't mind trying to keep it going.

Let's suspend the 24 hour rule until I return on the 1st of March. I'll continue to check in as time allows.

Will keep my eye on the current hand until noon tomorrow, after that it may be a few days until you hear from me.

Thanks to all for your patience. After this hiatus, it'll be a well oiled machine. You'll see. Hell, we might even get it down to 5 days per hand!

I vote we continue as best as we can... but I furthermore vote that we do NOT suspend the 24-hour rule for players--only the dealer. The reason being, with swellman's access being sporadic, we'd ideally like to have as much done as possible without him, so that he's more likely to be able to move the game along when he signs on.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Just checking in. Finding public access to the net was easier than I had expected. I just won't be able to do it every day.

Waiting on Shemp. I did relax the 24 hour rule before I left town, so I cannot in good conscience sit him out.

Has anyone heard from statisticool? He is still sitting out from the first deal and will remain so until heard from again.

I don't know but we can check to see if he's arguing with Clause at SS.

Ah.

Yes.

But I couldn't know that as I'm not welcome there.

So, Shemp.

What did you have?
