sorry this is just a lil rant.... I played on a table with a guy who finished top 10 last month and he had no skill what so ever and just drained his stake down to 10$ and was ante'd out.

That aint poker.... this is a skill league and playin .5% of your hands and watching ur stack get blinded down aint a skill. Just trying to finish as high as you can just so you can get a money reward at the end of the month? That shitty playing style wont do crap for you outside of PSO.

Using your clock up is one thing... but draining your stack down to 10$ is just dumb and you'd NEVER see it in a tourney outside the PSO.

I am the player in question and I guess I'm dumb, for playing like that. Rather than being offended I find this amusing.

If you don't get how this league works, DeViLBoY, I won't bother to explain it to you. I'll just take my money reward at the end of the month and let you play for the glory of the game.
Cheers!

I dont need the money... all I know is I was on your table and you were out long before me...

I dont see any difference between you and a donkey. Somebody gets called a donkey for pushing in bad situations so shouldnt u be called a donk for folding in bad situations? Like when you have 500 chips left and the BB was 200 and you folded?

this post wasnt to start a argument with you Dr3am3r... theres a reason I didnt put your name on there. You were on my table with me in my first PSO tourney and gave me some tips and all so I got no problem with you... I was making this post as a rant against drainers in general...

Just seems like a cheesy way to build a bankroll IMO.

why do you always put links to the topic you are responding to in your posts? and isnt it obvious that PSO and real world poker are not the same?

It's because he's not quoting using the "quote" button.

I too use clocking tactics but the way I see it is poker is a form of gambling and something I learned in my short-lived time in exchange betting you have to use every edge possible.

The good players adapt to what is profitable There is one consistent top ten player (wont use names) that does this. However when you watch him in real $ tournies he is often LAG style. Does well in both. Don't hate on them cuz they are smart enough to play for the cash.

Maximizing value = good poker.

Cheesy = playing in a way that doesn't maximize value, and calling out others who maximize value better than you do.

Is the "style" dreams is using going to win the freeroll tournaments? No, it hinders those chances. Is it going to win real $ tournaments? No, not unless he gets really lucky. Is it going to give him the best chance for a high finish in the monthly league ranking? Yes, if he's doing it optimally.

+1 to both of these...

It's called adaptability,being able to deduce what are the +/- EV situations and plays in a given situation. They are not always the same in PSO as they are in cash MTT's or even other freerolls for that matter. Not even close. I wouldn't be so quick to surmise that what one does (or doesn't do) in PSO means that they comport themselves in the same manner in a cash game.

Stalling,draining grinding the clock to a nub--whatever you want to call it WORKS in PSO at times. Knowing when those times are and taking advantage of them is what gets you paid in this league as much as anything else.

Those that recognize this didn't make the rules,but they are smart enough to take the rules as they are and use them to their best advantage.

Donks running the clock down, waiting for other players to lose so u can get a better finish if ur down to 5 BB, making that 30%, 20% when u get to 1750pts, just bloody donkey playing. I agree i play like that here at the skill league note me as a donk and see ya at the tables LOL gl all
