Reading this Doobs reminds me of my local cash game. You have multiple people buying in for the min and Just jamming over a standard open for the game. Lose and repeat. Win and then start playing a bit of poker.

I understand its a strategy but just as annoying as these late late registrations and unlimited rebuys.

Cap it at one

Good thread, read it all and a lot of the replies resonated with me.  Have been around poker for a long time like most of you and thought I would add in my own observations.

Poker online is basically over imo, it has been heading that way for a good 5+ years as well.  Real time GTO programs/prompters exist.  The game has pretty much been solved, why would you want to play against that?  Nobody in their right mind would play chess online for money vs a stranger and poker is heading the same way.  The sites are in a tough position - it's pretty much impossible to eliminate the use of such tools (or bots using them) from the games but if they ignore it real players complain when they catch it happening.  Trying to police this stuff costs a lot of time and money and in the end trying to stop it is futile.  The sites have known this for a long time. I doubt I will ever play online for anything resembling decent money again.

I do still love the game though and want to play (as a rec player, for fun).  Live is where it's at, but there are some concerning trends here also.  I have been told regs in a certain UK city are sneakily taking photos of everyone and circulating them with relevent information on whatsapp groups.  The info came from someone who I would usually listen to and having watched out for it I am pretty sure I saw it happening.  I have also seen ipad's being used at the table with poker simulators up on them. It would be a harsh rule but I can only really see all devices being banned at the table as the way out from all of this going forward.  Headphones would have to be banned also, not exactly going to be popular but it has to be this way I think.

Music often gets me through long tournament days.

Maybe just have Random checks of headphone usage by the floor. And mobile phones away or turned over if you are in a hand or your hand is dead.

For players like me who enjoy listening to music whilst playing poker shouldn't be punished for a few bad eggs

most enjoyable part of live poker for me was the interaction on the table between players, when this died when phones and tablets were allowed at table and people started multitabling i lost interest in live poker
would love another blonde Bash but wouldnt get any numbers any more
will look at getting to an apat or sky event next year but doubt i will know anyone anymore

Seen worse folds

I was just staring at this think wtf, but it seems it was misreported...

https://twitter.com/Mike_partypoker/status/1189296665708171264

I hate to disappoint you @plenopads but @BJNemeth got it wrong.  It was set over set over set but I folded a set of fours which was a pretty easy fold as it was played. Wish I was good enough to fold a set of Queens there but chances are I’d be in the re-buy line. #wpt

FWIW I am not really sure folding a set of queens would be a good fold.  It feels a bit results orientated to me.  If I was sitting there with a set of queens and somebody donked 30k, I am sure I'd probably dread it a little, but still call.

Most of the bets placed so far seem more like hopeful punts rather than value spots

This incredible double bad-beat has circulated quickly.

The Pieman forwarded it to me with caption: “Probably start self harming if I got this beat”.

 Ten Jack wins one in ten on board one and around one in twenty on board two.

Surely the second one is a one-outer so ~40/1
