**** this league, its a complete ****ing waste of time. I really have had enough of the early bustouts to idiots who steal then get lucky.

The league is FIXED. I run horrible on it, yet in non-serious tourneys I run good, hitting the nuts regularly. ITs complete BS. PS is corrupt, its that simple, and I am not the only one who has noticed this.

From your point of view it may seem so, but what if you would be the one getting lucky over and over again..

The engine PS is using is tested by independent contractors so much that it can't and will never be fixed. This goes for all online casino's, poker sites etc.

Just try to sit tight especially till you reach about 7,000 left in the tournament. Just wait wait and wait.

ps. until you reach about 1700 points in the league you will get positive by just folding everything. So you can just wait for a monster hand without risking the lose of any points.

Im talking about the premier, not the open. The premier league is completely different.

Basically, people tend to shove once they hit the flop in that. That kind of makes the game retarded because even if you hit the flop, even if you hit top pair/top 2 pair/set, you will more than likely be outkicked/outdrawn and bust early. But if you fold to every shove, then you'll never win a pot and bust anyway. Completely retarded. Its the poker equivalent of the special olympics.

The Primier is still free isnt it.

In that case i have the perfect solution.

don't play

Find a game you enjoy playing.

if you have reached a point where you cant take it anymore its time to stop.

'm making my first serious attempt this month to get into the priemer league next month, currently sit at 471 in open. Why because of the untold riches and fame that this will bring me... well no i have no idea what the prize structure is to be honest. Its a challange and one i can do for free.

On a seperate note what do you have against the special olympics. My students compete in special olympic bowling, swimming track and basketball and floor hockey.

I have nothing against it. Im just saying its full of people who are retarded, maybe that was a bad example. But I qualified and I'm clearly retarded and shit at this game if I score negative points on a consistent basis.

WE no longer use the term retarded to Discribe people who have special needs given the general negative usage.

What you really mean is your personal game style is not suited for these games. But with a little study and a flexable approuch. I'm sure you could adapt to the various poor players at the tables.

I would rather play with the lucky hopefulys than the top players.

Buzz, how do you manage to change your avatar so many times??? I am jealous. It used to be some Union Jack type theme right, and before that some psychadelic thingy.........

Anyway, I am happy to go to Premier. Will I win, probably not. Will some underestimate me? Yep. More than happy to run with the big boys baby !!!!

Only reason I cannot keep going in Open and try to crack higher than my current 51 is lack of time to play doing full time school !!!!!!

Cheers

But spec ed is my passion and these kids have problems enough without being compared to stupid poker players.

howdy,

Well the drunk tank is, peeps that respect each other and the game, b.s.is not allowed in the tank,

Just have fun and play your best is all that is asked.

There is two tanks for now, when the u.s. is allowed back there will be one,

The Drunk Tank is run by johnny and tats, very cool peeps,

They play every night, play money so our u.s. friends can play.

The Drunk Tank 2 is played every Friday night, KO game with a $1.35 buy in, and most weeks extra bounty cash, supplied by our members, which is very cool.

If you need info on the clubs, pm either johnny,tats or myself

and please remember bring your A game, but fun 1st.

cheers

p.s. yes it's a home game, not listed in the home game section, but has been here from the start...hiccup
