Cheers Terry

The academy manger has a tough and intensive job and is constantly under pressure and I will not micro manage her as I trust her judgement.

Will she get it wrong sometimes with players ? Absolutely as would anyone managing an assessment system like this but we have to live with that and we try to reduce those “mistakes”  by looking st other information other than just results or indeed profit/loss .

I would add that , whilst I accept believe and respect what you say, you would not want to take the over under on the number of unsuccessful applicants that day same or similar to what you have said above

Our academy manager has advised that the consistency of performance was not adequate and suggested a boom or bust type approach.

She also checked your mtt graph for additional information and it was not sufficent to change her overall opinion

She also confirmed that my jumper selection is excellent

Hi
If have asked our acedemy manager for details of your issue and will provide more feed back in due course.

The academy process is a loss leader for us as most applicants lose money through it.

We tolerate this loss because it gives players without a suitable proven online history to get a shot at showing us what they can do and in addition if we get some good long term winning players through it then that is  hopefully well worth the lcost in the long run .

Asking mtt applicants to trial by playing 20 sng is not ideal and we may get some wrong but with sometimes up to 50 applicants a week and needing a relatively quick and as reasonable a way possible (excluding the natural variance of playing mtt) this we feel is the best, if not perfect, way to do it  for us.

The academy manager assessed performance based on various criteria which pays little regard to profit or loss but more to overall performance as a whole so just having made profit will not necessarily ensure you are accepted to the next stage

Also the leaderboard situation should be fine now as the festival is longer and most players can play virtually every event, unlike the last one where the main event winner was almost always going to win the leaderboard (though apparently 6 people could have won it going into the last turbo event)

The leaderbaord should be a proper competitive affair this time!

Looks superb schedule cant wait for it to start.

great to see DTD making the effort to run a full series of events that we can all support and enjoy rather than the offerings of late which mostly amount to a single main event with the odd half hearted side event.

Hopefully we will see all the young superstars and all the  old has-beens battling it out over a week of great tournaments

Bens facebook was hacked and he contacted them and they advised them

He has now set up a new one and with their help has additional hopefully better security on it.

He is unable to close it as they have to, i would have thought they would when he told them it had been hacked and they helped him set up the new one.

I will ask him to hassle them again to get it properly and permanently closed.

There is lots of this going on and i would suggest to everyone that whether they have heard of a hacking or not they should never give money to anyone at all who asks via FB or MSN, if they dont know you well enough to phone you dont give them money.

Thing is, it wasn't just 'calling the clock' at all and you know it. Everytime u two were in a hand, u were hollywooding every decsion, even to open the action it would take u at least 45 seconds.

The board was JJXA u had called hte 3 bet pre, u had chk called two streets, so when the river comes a 3 or some low irrelevant card, what are u thinking? Your passing now? - Also u could have an argument if u were actually thinking, but all u were doing is talking out loud, and not about hands, just about total irrelevant imformation that had absolutly nothing to do with the hand, and the fact Paul had his whole face pretty much covered, it was HIGHLY unlikely u were going to get anything out of him.

What made u change ur mind on the river if u call to the turn? and then a brick card comes? Do u think he made runner runner flush? - Or was it the fact that the whole hand up untill that point had taken at LEAST 5/6 minutes, and a further 2 and half minutes b4 I called the clock.

Oh and if u think I'm talking rubbish, u can ask the dealer, and everyone else on the table when u guys were in pots, what it felt like for them...  Clearly forgot to mention, the abuse I got when I was 2 foot away, llike this guy is EVER calling anyway, get a grip.

but what if the guy who called the clock on you saw the hand with the same clarity?

You can't compare the 2 situations at all. Firstly when I was at the broadway, the guy had slowrolled me a hand b4, by questioning whether I had to show my cards, when I chked back the river and he had Aces, secondly, he never stopped talking, slowing the game down and giving lots of others a headache, thirdly he called the slock on the river, when I had bet/called every street within 20 seconds each card, and there was near on 40k in there by the end. I was planning on whether to raise all in or fold, not just call, IMHO it's a totally different scenario, I've never called the clock on a player in a live mtt, bar today, I felt the two involved did not need that much acting when in a pot, and also the whole hollywooding of opening the action, it's not fair on the WHOLE table why we should have so few hands dealt each level, when the same thing kept happening with the same two people. FWIW, the german guy who called the clock on me, had called it after around 1 minute, which at the time with everything that had been happening prior to it, was pretty unfair. I don't appreciate someone shouting abuse at me and then go running to the updater telling a story which doesn't even cover ALL the facts.

Dont waste your effort trying to explain Dreenie hes not interested in the truth of it anyway
