Love it

I love all the "Poker Talk" the last two posts have generated. I may have to call myself a poker blog or something.. Highly personal stuff coming next post. No nudity do not worry. The thing I like about hands like that one is they can generate alot of discussion. Alot of different ways to play hands like that.

Again though to summarize: I make up the 7% and more from the people who fold to me. The 24h straight draw is not what I am shooting for it, it is my safety rope in case I mis-judge the strength of the persons hand or there willingness to commit all there money with a vulnerable hand. So I make up the 7% easily when tighter opponents fold to my bet. I really do not want the call here but when he makes it I have to yank the rip cord and hope the shoot deploys. In this case it did.

I fold there as well (even if I was somehow playing a double of myself, I would still fold, so don't give me that "play the player" bullshit).

Again, I don't have a problem with how you played the hand or the results.

I have a problem with guys like DP who think that anyone who even SUGGESTS that the guy made the right play for the right reason is "thick headed."

The ego to think that the way you play is the only way the game should be played is the downfall of a lot of players.

Duggle, it's obvious that you take me too seriously since you keep referring to things I commented in other posts, but anway: I said you were thick headed because you really think the guy with 99 made the correct play, even though you're trying to pass it off as something you merely suggested.

The guy played 99 horribly, and if you don't see that then you're a crap face: a piece of poop poker wannabe "player".(sic) I just graduated elementary school yesterday, too; please don't ridicule me as being a liar in Waffle's future posts.

Fastforward in Waffle's blog -- one post from now (in the future):

I have a problem with guys like DP who say I'm "a crap face: a piece of poop poker wannabe 'player'." just because I'm wrong. Then again, he also said he had just graduated elementary school, so he's a liar and his words should receive no credence.

##Note: The above post prediction is not at all similar to Duggle's past comments when he bemoaned Waffle's improper grammar after not liking what he said about Veneno.##

Don't worry, it won't happen again.
