Played my last hand on Replay last night. I’ve enjoyed many players over the past several months, but I have tired of the poor play. I’m posting the hand that ended my days of playing online free poker. You’ll find it interesting. Let me set the hand up for you…
- as usual at Replay, this was a table where almost everyone limped into every hand. I was one of the few who didn’t limp with garbage hands.
- one guy in particular did the “Replay thing” of min raising every hand. So silly, and so NOT a good poker strategy, but ok.
- I rarely if ever bluff, because with play money, people will call with King high, and beat your open ended str8 draw.
With that in mind…
I end up with pocket Aces. Watch how the hand plays out:
Put LakotaLady on a hand before the cards show at the end… I dare ya.
Try to put her on a hand after the flop… I dare ya.
AsAd - 82.92% chance of win
Kh5h - 16.69% chance of win
AA - 94.75% chance to win
K5 - 3.74% chance to win
1.52% chance of tie
ooh… K5 is such a keeper…
AA - 81.82% to win
K5 - up to a whopping 18.18%
So anyway, I realized that I’m not up for this experience any longer. It’s not really poker for some (and that’s ok) but I’m looking for a poker experience.
MY SUGGESTION to Replay to make this a better site:
Don’t let people play in games that they can’t afford.
How many times do you see guys with “0” chips in their bankroll - at a 50/100 table. So silly. They ruin the game SO many times. It’s not even fun beating them (which we do many times) because they lack even fundamental skills. How about setting up a minimum bankroll that you HAVE to have in order to buy into a certain level game. Let the guys with 5K in chips total play at the duck pond.
Consider having different “levels” of play, that one must earn. This could be related to bankroll, or wins, or whatever.
Some of the tournaments that I played in were wonderful. But I’m not really a tourney guy.
I play ring at the casino. (Just $1/$2, nothing big)
So again thanks for some good games here and there, but I’m done. Out.
It was an absolute blast giving away my approx $400K in chips to the members of this table. I wish them all well.
Good luck at the tables.
