Plenty of Fish in the Stud 8 Pool
If you want a game that can be truly a table of fish, then
you need to sit in a Stud 8 or Better game. Stud 8 or Better is known as stud hi-lo split. Â The best
five card hand wins half the pot, while a qualifying low
hand gets the other hand. Â A qualifying low hand is five
unique cards eight and lower.
PLO will eventually drive you insane
Omaha can give anyone gray hairs and if Patrik Antonius had
any it would probably have changed color after this horrific
beat. I've always regarded Patrik as one of the nicest and
most humble pros, but that all changed after seeing this
clip. "Good luck buddy. God call by the way, or good raise, good
Poker Staking for the 21st Century
Most anyone that is a serious poker player has at least
entertained the idea of getting them staked into a
tournament or a cash game. Â Online staking has always
been a bit of a crapshoot for players unless they can get
stakes from friends or backers that they know in real
life. Â Online staking has changed in the last year or so
with the creation of ChipMeUp. com.
An end of an era has arrived. Â PokerRoom. com was launched
in 1999 and was one of the first online poker sites to hit
the internet. Â When the poker boom hit, the site expanded
its game offerings and became one of the most popular sites
on the internet.

Lack of live experience costs Peter Eastgate $25k
There's always a lot of talk about young online players
having trouble adjusting to live games. Lots of it is just
bs, it doesn't take more than a live session or two to get
hang of the basic differences. But in season five of High
Stakes Poker we've seen some interesting examples of the
contrary. In the first episode there's a story of Tom 'durrrr' Dwan
checking with only his index finger in Bellagio (like you
click the mouse), which caused some confusion because no one
even noticed the check.
Negreanu totally off his game in High Stakes Poker
In my opinion Daniel Negreanu is one of the most stable and
consistent poker pros out there. I've rarely seen him make
any big mistakes, but in the latest episode (#3) of High
Stakes Poker season five his game totally falls apart. It all starts with a hand he plays against Barry Greenstein. Negreanu gets pretty unlucky hitting a two pair on the turn
when Greenstein has flopped the nut straight.

his runner-up finish at the WSOP this year. He also finished
3rd in the WSOP-E Main Event.
