That may be your thinking process my friend but for me, I can only getting better by those who play their cards better than me.
You can do that in the beginner freerolls that cost you nothing to enter and learn a lot
This is an issue at just about all levels. You have to realize some players have bankrolls in the BILLIONS. That’s a lot of chips! Just play your game. If things run bad, take a breather or find another table. There seems to be plenty of them here. Good luck.
Some players will warm up with a small-tiny game before playing a large or tough match…
When I first started on Replay I played 1/2, and there was woman that got all bent out of shape anytime someone bet preflop. Her thinking was that no one should bet until postflop. She didn’t get it that was very poor poker and everywhere you could read it was advised not to limp in preflop. She’d leave a table when someone bet preflop and then make nasty comments while we were playing. Someone complained about her, and I don’t see her anymore.
I have found that those with lower numbers are no better than many with 6 digit numbers. Bring 'em all on. Those that complain don’t understand the game and should consider buying one of Doyle’s books on the game and learn something.
I’ll go head to head with you
While that may be true sometimes, but it’s not true most of the time. It’s far easier to read players with 6 digit numbers than it is those with lower numbers. If you aren’t looking for the high digits and are playing people that have better rankings, you aren’t a very smart player. I’ve read Doyle’s books and they are good, but you need to come into the 21st century and read some more current books. Things in poker have changed a great deal since Doyle wrote his books.
Just play a tournament then, once you buy in their bankroll or high roller status doesn’t mean a thing; only the chips in front of you and them. Replay poker for entertainment purposes only
a pre-flop bet that isn’t AA23 is a very poor bet, I see many 6 digit players do the big raise pre-flop bet with an A xxx, ask yourself what are my outs ? if the flop does improve with another A at best they are at 24 % so they of course fold losing their big raise and yet they do it repeatedly
I highly agree, you dont see a lot of the old timers winning the WSOP anymore, the younger players dont follow the old school rules
Your going to have what I call chip buying fish…These clowns pretend to be players, but are just raise raise raise all in chip buyers… Nothing you can do, except find a table where these clowns are not at. Players here at Replay should be allowed a list. That list is to prohibit or block certain players like these from entering a table you are on. Once these clowns are blocked by enough people and cannot play, maybe (just maybe) the low IQ will get the message and reinvent themselves…
I agree, but to a point. If I have suited JQ and a K of another suit, I’ll play and sometimes raise. I have 9 outs, plus 8 on each end, for a total of 27 possibilities, and then the flush draw with lower numbers. I play both and not just one side. (Hi/Lo). But regardless of your hand and what any book says, nothing can beat a fickle flop. That will kill A2A3 every single time. At 73 I have had more A2A3 than years born, and, 50% of the time it will fail me. There are 8 outs with that hand and only 8 on one end (if unsuited). That leaves 36 other cards with countless possibilities, that will kill you. I haven’t played here long, but I have managed to get plenty of chips after first small initial purchase, so, my way is profitable. 75% of this game as with all card games, is PURE LUCK of the flop. The very largest pot I ever won was a 11K pot with a pair of treys… Fickle cards make for fickle flops. You cannot guarantee anything…
Quit whining and adjust your game. Plenty of tables to choose from and don’t forget be patient
and when you get a good hand take the fishy’s chips.
They’re exactly the players you should be looking for. Play very tight and you’ll eventually end up with all their chips. Every book or video on poker out there says to look for the fish, and that’s the kind of players they are. If your preference is to play very good players, they’ll end up with your chips. And, if you want to limit how much they can bet, perhaps you shoud be playing pot limit. Either way, quit whining.
This is the motto of just about every successful poker player out there. The whole objective of the game is to win wether it be in person live games or online professionals that just have the itch. You will of course come up for players that play online just for fun or to keep the mind sharp but the fun and keeping the mind sharp equals winning
I see no reason for high stakes players playing against low stake players. They, the high stakes players, can just wait you out. Beings there’s no real money in the game they can just bid as much as they want knowing in the end they’ll win. I don’t see the point. There is no learning involved unless you like to lose to someone with all the chips. This really isn’t a game of skill so much as luck. I’ve seen way to many people go all the way to the river with nothing. And end up winning with some crazy luck. No skill involved in that, you just have a bigger dog in the fight. I think it would be a good idea to have different tables. One can go up, but if your stacked with chips what’s the point of going down to where some players a just learning or don’t have the fire power some of these high stakes players have and they probably never will get up to that status, unless they purchase chips.
That’s why we have free to enter banker builders for low stakes and beginners.
Do you think high stakes players are sitting in on a low stakes table with a huge stack? You can only sit in on a table with the maximum amount of chips for the stakes you are playing. It doesn’t matter if they have a gazillion chips or the barest minimum in their account. I don’t understand why the people constantly complaining about this can’t comprehend how it’s done.
I went back and replayed the last hand you played over 7 months ago. You went all in with 43 offsuit. You stated in your post that it isn’t a game of skill so much as luck, then proceeded to play exactly that way even though there was a pair of 8s on the board and you completely whiffed on the flop. You losing wasn’t bad luck. It was terrible play.
