Title: Misc gossip etc.
Post by: Doobs on May 02, 2019, 08:33:32 PM
There didn't seem to be a thead for this, but there has been a(nother) spat on twitter about mark-up betweeen Doug Polk, Daniel Negreanu and Sean Deeb amongst others.

As a result, Sean Deeb has appeared on Joey Ingram's channel.  He is a bit marmite, I have never been much of a fan, but I think there are a lot of gems in this.  There are also bits that i find fairly disagreeable, but the bits about balancing kids, poker and marriage are very good.  I was interested to hear that Jason Mercier's solution seems to have been to virtually jack poker in.   There is a lot of other good stuff there too.

I don't particularly care for him, but thought on the most part he came across well there.

Yeah, this divide in Deeb is what I have found myself playing against him. A lot from him fairly interesting, and quite fun, and then he'll do something like I saw him do last year. Out of nowhere, he put down a quiet guy at the table, who wasn't a classic rec, but clearly it meant quite a lot to him to be playing at the WSOP. Deeb said to him that he seemed "a bit cleverer than he looked," and the guy looked gutted and didn't say a word after.

Say something like that to the wrong person one day, and wish he didn't live in the US.

He has obviously taken a dislike to this Johnnie guy, who by all accounts is a good winner in the 5/10 games. Absolutely coats him for charging ~1.4 for his package of what I presume is NLHE games, and in the same sentence says he has no problem with Joey's GF charging the same markup for her package that includes a $10k PLO.

https://fullcontactpoker.com/a-common-sense-rewards-system/ (https://fullcontactpoker.com/a-common-sense-rewards-system/)

There is a lot of truth in it, but there are a couple of flaws when applied to Stars.

1.  The rewards on stars don't go to losers either.  I am a long run loser on Stars and my chest rewards have been absolutely feeble since they started.  Thoygh there is a promo on at the moment where I have been getting $5 chests rather than the usual 2 cent ones. 
2.  Saying Supernova Elite should never have existed, and I don't think it should have, still doesn't excuse the late withdrawal of it.

Other than that I do agree with much in the article.  Having said that, the rake in some games is making those games unbeatable, and I think there should always be a reasonable chance of the best players winning.

He seems so convinced he is correct. If he did manage to go deep it would be very interesting on what he would do when faced with opportunity to do a deal. A lot of the time it makes sense to deal when massive amounts are on the line, given the cap he has so much more upside to not dealing than a player ordinarily would.

Party Poker are getting rid of HUDs and forcing everyone to change their alias.   My HUD broke a few months ago, so it could be good
for me.  Would love to see it on Stars.  As I am a logic wizard racist without a HUD, I already do tendencies by nationality, so get a headstart on others.   Though my thought process usually involves recognising some lunatic from Stars.

A really odd series of Tweets from Doug Polk, starting with;

I'm out guys, punted off the rest of my chips. Cant even play poker well anymore, playing gives me really bad anxiety and while I'm there I just want to leave. Only played this summer because I didnt want to let you guys down.

Not going to play again, sorry everybody.



https://twitter.com/DougPolkPoker/status/1147376178803511298


He followed up with;


I think it's a few things compounding. If I had to guess it's not studying or playing, feeling like I need to win or I'm upset, and not caring about the stakes. But the result is I'm just not able to play at any sort of reasonable level.


And.....


Hard to say if poker is gonna crash, I do think it's a great game. But I'm out. Thanks for kind words

As of June 30, 2019, OPR will no longer be tracking PokerStars tournaments. We are sad to let go of PokerStars after 12 years on OPR but we no longer have the resources to support the tracking of PokerStars. We will continue to track partypoker tournaments so stay tuned.

As an aside, Pius Heinz responded; I wondered what happened to him.

Really surprised to see these comments from Doug Polk, last I knew (clearly outdated) he was strongly promoting some poker training site (upswing poker?).


Used to really enjoy his twitch stream and broadcasts really surrpised to see so much venom directed his way on twitter.

Whilst in Vegas I read on someone's twitter that last year, Chris Fergusson used to join the late reg queue late on then move to the back if other's joined after him.  He was thus maximising his chance of a min cash for POY points.   It is clearly reasonable to late reg in the circumstances, but moving to back of the queue is absurd.  Should be a DQ on the overall fair play rule.  If he did it again throw him out of POY standings too.

Obviously Vayo should be DQ'd if true.

Definitely uber melodramatic, like most poker players, though.

Couldn't he go get a buffet and guarantee a min cash?   

If you are at the late reg desk isn't it different to normal reg?   If you are going to give someone a round penalty for ducking a big blind with 20bbs (as I saw happen in the plo8), surely the same should apply if you late reg 20bbs?   I don't know the rules, and wondered off to get a coffee in level 1 after a 1 hour queue to reg.   I think 6 mins into level 1 is different to half an hour into level 9, though not sure where the line is. 

Feels like it should be take seats immediately after reg closes and/or if they are running alternates.

Ah I get the angle now. The registration closes so all stacks should be in play, but if you are in the queue, your stack isn't in play. Yes sneaky!

Oh and I love calling people out who wander around to miss their big blind - once I have seen them see the table and then look or walk away. I usually stand up and shout Table 45?, over here mate!

Instant irritation and more worthy of the ‘FairPlay’ initiative’s attention than people wearing scarves.

I was moved to his table at a £500 in Nottingham and by the third hand of hearing his inane chatter I had had enough. I called clock when it got to him on the next hand. He seemed puzzled by this.

So if a player has 50% equity in a $100 pot, they can take $49.50 there and then rather than run out the board. If one player chooses this new option and the other does not, the player who has not chosen it plays the remainder of the hand against PokerStars, who keep the money if they win.

Yes, what a lovely 3 way coup that was.

I don't really know much about this event, and who or what Triton are, but have to say, the quality and production values of the stream (which I watched free of charge on You Tube) was absolutely superb, best quality I can recall in many a year. Commentary was very good too.

Sam Trickett's river play v Chidwick was fun

3 handed

all check flop and turn including Stephen with the flopped flush

River Trickett bet small, Kenney raise as a bluff, Chidwick flat, Trickett...

https://twitter.com/partypokerlive/status/1156986271241314304?s=20

lots of clips on that account over the three days of the tournament

Pro's rarely have much of themselves in SHR comps.

Businessmen most likely had pieces of them, though.

Here's the chip counts heading into today;


1 – Timothy Adams, Canada, 5.735 million
2 – Bryn Kenney, USA, 5.54 million
3 – Alfred DeCarolis, USA, 5.455 million
5 – Vivek Rajkumar, India, 18 million
6 – Bill Perkins, USA, 2 million
7 – Stephen Chidwick, UK, 9.79 million
8 – Dan Smith, USA, 2.35 million
9 – Aaron Zang, China, 5.06 million




The chip leader seems to be based in Seattle. Here's his THM:

And his Wiki page;

Here's how the Triton thing ended;



Aaron Zang (China) £19,000,000
Bryn Kenney (United States) £11,670,000
Dan Smith (United States) £7,200,000
Stephen Chidwick (United Kingdom) £4,410,000
Vivek Rajkumar (India) £3,000,000
Bill Perkins (United States) £2,200,000
Al DeCarolis (United States) £1,720,000
Timothy Adams (Canada) £1,400,000
*Chop agreements not included.


Although note;


Hendon Mob will show Kenney won £11,670,000 and Zang earned £19,000,000. But Liv Boeree announced on the post-game live-stream that a chop was made during heads-up play. Kenney actually received the biggest cut (£16.8 million). But Zang, who also added to his wealth, received the shiny gold trophy.


Title: Re: Misc gossip etc.
Post by: tikay on August 04, 2019, 09:06:14 AM


Players had to dress up, & follow certain rules, though Kenney declined to wear a suit, so presumably the "dress rule" was not enforceable.



Players will not be allowed to cover any part of their body from the neck up. This includes, but is not limited to, wearing scarves, funnel neck sweatshirts, turtle neck jumpers, hats/caps. The only exception will be made for sunglasses and hats that do not cover/hide any part of the face at any time due to stage lighting. Hoodies are not recommended to follow the rules above. A formal suit will be required to be worn at the Final Table (9 players remaining).

Partypoker have been covering this event all week on their main Twitch channel and tonight is our last night before we move on to something new we are trying tomorrow night with one of our pro streamers.

We are covering Event #7 the £100k Short deck Main Event, it's available on a few other outlets as well as PPTV.

I've never played Short Deck but it's pretty action packed.

Pros had to pay themselves.

Pros divulged the % they had to the organisers,  biggest piece was 50%, in theory a pro could have had 100% I believe,  don't believe there was any stipulation.

I suspect that the businessman who invited them would have had first option for a sizeable chunk of action in practice.

Yes - most of time Pro normally allows VIP to buy a piece at no mark up or maybe offers small 1-5% freeroll

This is an interesting one, mainly for the replies, some of which can't be serious, but are.

I'm so glad it all panned out OK in the end for Simon, if he was ever shown to be a wrong 'un, it would be too much to bear. Does seem rather odd that given the nefarious nature of many of those who inhabit Casinos & high cost poker tournaments that their suspicions should alight on Simon of all people.

Compensation? A gracious apology & a free meal is more than enough, some of the guys replying have somewhat ambitious expectations.

How can that be enough?   Surely the EV of his chips whilst blinded out is a start point.  Then plus a bit more for the hassle/heavy handedness (say extra 50%).   Hard to say what that is without blind info.  Could be price of a meal/hotel night or buyin depending on the level.  If he can't get right in 10 minutes after a 20 minute dusturbance, he needs to work on his mental game (general point and not specific to Simon who has always been pleasant).

FWIW he got some serious heavyweight replies, so maybe they have higher expectations than us riff-raff.

It looks like Simon got the result he was looking for, though he is so far being a little coy as to what it was.


So they have offered me $1M USD in compensation for yesterday. Lol JK. but they did offer me what I believe is adequate compensation so thanks to
@shrpo @HardRockHolly and @TDTonyB for apologising and dealing with this situation quickly and fairly.
