Technically, you aren't supposed to talk about your hand in a 3 way pot even if you have an all-in player. Causing a player to fold or call can vastly change the equity of the all-in player's hand.

I asked the dealer. He said that since the 3rd player could not do anything else it was ok to speak to my opponent.

Didn't seem correct to me.

Hi Vic!!

Generally speaking when a player is all in and 2 other players remain talking isnít allowed because that player would be at a severe disadvantage, the talking could force a player to fold or call that would alter player whose all ins chances in the hand, going back into the poker room now gonna get a better explanation for you

Great job Sunday on tvg, really enjoyed you talking about long acres and didnít realize that Boeing bought that property, and didnít resize planes could fly without logos😂😂😂😂

Dealers often don't know the rules. But definitely within your rights to follow the dealer's instructions.

we're lucky if my "gambler's car" could speed through there without the tires falling off.

since you were a former leo i do think he shoulda let you off and like to think he is suffering the bad karma from his decision.

let's play some cards.....

was trying to boycott atlantic city for ALL of 2018 but got a few days off and my discipline simply broke down.

i take off late wednesday night and get a nice room in main bally's tower for three nights. thursday morning i'm up early and spend a nice day on the beach walking down to the ventnor pier. it's probably about a six mile round trip and the sand ends up beating up my heels pretty good and i'll spend the next three days and nights hobbling around casinos more than william h macy in the cooler.

there's no maria bello with me but maybe i'll get lucky anyhow and drag in a pot or two??

we open at bally's in the wild west poker room with some 2/6 limit action. i river four kings for a $175 high hand (net) but do little else in the game; dropping $100 and falling behind for the 2018 season.

game -100 (2/6 lim)
year -85 (1-1)
bonus 175 (175)

What is the reason for the Atlantic City boycott? And only 2 playing sessions in 2018....WOW. Must be pretty hard, given the amount of times played last year.

here's a hand from the most recent live game i played. feels like i misplayed this one.

you start w 10k. i kept accumulating a stack, but would get bad beat to knock me below chip average. kept on like that. build-bad beat-build again.

at 1k/2k/300a me and bb both have about 80k. there's 9 left. we're in the money and are co chip leaders. it folds to me on the button. holding ace 8 off i open to 5k. bb defends. 13,700 to the flop.

flop comes 4AJ all hearts of which i have none. bb leads 4k. feels like a blocking bet. probably has a worse pair and a flush draw. i can raise, but i'm only getting called by better or hands with a ton of equity. i call. 21,700 to the turn.

turn is my gin card. an offsuit 8.(4AJ8, three hearts). bb leads with another blocking bet of 7k. I call. 35,700 to the river.

river is 9 of hearts. (4AJ89, four hearts). bb checks. i check. he turns over 77 with the 7 of hearts to win.

i feel like the best line was to shove the turn. he maybe calls, gets there and i'm out, but it was the optimal play and i did it wrong. this game had glorious results for how cliche, but the process in this hand was flawed imo.

lassoed in the wild west??

back in exciting atlantic city where i hobble down to the wsop room in the wild west section of the bally's casino to kickoff day number two of our trip.

we're again in 2/6 limit company where i strike quickly with our old buddy KK taking down the very first hand of the game!!

when the cowboys come around again however, they're lassoed by J2 off suit and suddenly we're back in a struggle.

eventually the game erodes into a bunch of short stacks taking long walks and i get up before the blinds take away my first garden state win of the season.

game +4 (2/6 lim)
year -81 (2-1)
bonus 0 (175)
