I have been playing the League games like a fool, I have joined those who r going all-in from the get go. I know it is not proper, deffintely it is not playing poker, more like that game where you take a card without looking and the person you r playing with does the same then you hold them up and guess whether your card is higher or lower than the other player, then the loser takes a shot of whatever you r drinking. Dumb? You bet. The problem here is no shot to take after an all-in wins or loses. I would think there has to b a better way but with the $1500 you have to start with you almost need to double or triple up if you want any chance at going deep in the tournament. So I wait until I have 2 good cards and then toss all the chips in. I am not very good at this type of play as I have been knocked out of each tourney. Maybe you need to practice at it to finally get it right, I do not know for sure but I do know it takes most of the fun of playing the game away so it makes the League games less appealling to me. Maybe now that I have more time I can try to start playing as it should b. The problem is all it takes is a few small losses and then you r forced to go all-in as the $1500 does not give you a lot of room for errors, also whatching someone with 83o pull down two or three stackes is a big downer also. These r card one would never dream of using to open a hand but then the player beside you does use them an wins. I am not whining about it just trying to fathom where their thoughts r when they go all-in with trash and it turns into gold. Oh well, as said more time now so hopefully I can figure it out, later all, hope your weekend was all and more than you hoped for, Len.
