Not sure if you've seen these videos by Alex Fitzgerald, but might be helpful:

Thanks man. I'll be studying my ass off. 90k is a big deal. 

I may finally get to play some live PLO!

Poiupoiu -

this is screwy. theres also another pic i cant find right know, but he lifts his hat for a second during play, it looked like a shaved place on his head

 . . . . . .

I've been following Doug Polk's videos on this for the last week. Something is definitely going on and they are being incredibly brazen on the live stream about it, not to mention on social media. Between Postle's social media and some of the idiot commentators they have on there, it's almost like they're announcing and gloating that he's cheating and getting away with it. The thing that puzzles me is why someone like Matt Berkey, who is such a high level live player, woud sit and play in the same game with this guy. It was hilarious when Berkey flopped that boat against him though, lol.

Crazy. I could see a rather large criminal case popping up in the near future as well.

I'd urge anyone that frequents this thread to check out all of Doug Polk's and Joey Ingram's YouTube videos on this. Well, not all of them because they both do one together that's over 2 hours long and Joey has a fucking meltdown and goes 5 hours strong in one video. But the evidence they're presenting as two of the best in the world NLHE and PLO poker players is as solid as it gets. So if Postle really has not been cheating then the only other explanation is he really does have superhuman powers. The dipshit commentators like to continually joke and laugh about that on the live streams, sometimes in a way where it would be impossible for them to already have the information to make their dumbass jokes they think are so cute. Something tells me they're not laughing at all right now.

That guy has some good stuff. Thanks! It definitely brought up spots I hadn't thought about since they're a lot less applicable playing cash. It's always a balancing act between maximizing EV and minimizing variance, especially live where you can't get significant volume in tournaments like you can online.

I am looking to put some cash online and play some.  Any suggestions on sites?  I have used global poker and Bovada in the past.

 

One of my concerns is cash out options.  What's the latest scoop?

I play on Global mostly because the cashouts are easy and never a hassle. Not a big fan of Bovada or any of the other sites on that network.

Better question.  Did you get some value out of the hand?

I did! 

3 streets! I check called the flop and turn OOP. The turn was the 4th heart and I thought would kill the action. I was praying the board would pair. No bbj at my room now :(. It didn't happen. . Then I min check raised him on the river. He didn't call. So I think he had a middling flush or maybe a set.

Glad you got some value out of it.  I never seem too when I have unbeatable hands.

 

Going to Vegas next week for work.  Plan to hit Aria on Tuesday afternoon then move to Bellagio after dinner.  Then work Wednesday and hit Wynn on Thursday for the noon tourny.  Can't wait.

I'm going to try the $10,000 - $80 Hollywood Park Casino tournament tomorrow night. I'm going to rewatch those Alex Fitzgerald videos I posted to prep (I've been studying cash game stuff for most of the past few months).

When is your $90k tournament?

Nice, at least it is 40 minute levels and not 15-20 minute levels like the lower staked ones I'm used to playing.

I watched this video today from Evan Jarvis, it has some pretty good info...especially about bubble play:

Yeah there's a 30k starting stack too. So it will play like a cash game for a good while. The starting stack doesn't hit 30BB until level 9 (hour 6). My nittiness will be rewarded for a few hours.
