    Gah, I just made a terrible play with AK offsuit in the email poker thingy and am about to lose a good chunk of my stack because I'm dumb. Is anyone here a poker player so I can run through the hand? Heyelander, you checking this thread these days?

    Bummer... I'm in a weekly game $40 + $20 add-on, 1 rebuy, plus a bad beat jackpot which is now over $1500. I've been playing a few months and have made final table most weeks but only two cashes so far. I'm up a bit overall.

    But next week they somehow got $1500 added to the pot plus the winner gets a 60" flat screen TV!
    If DMT didn't exist we would have to invent it. There has to be a weirdest thing. Once we have the concept weird, there has to be a weirdest thing. And DMT is simply it.

    Awesome. Good luck! I kind of hate rebuy games, personally, but almost all the casinos do their tournaments that way so pretty much just have to deal with it. I used to enter tournaments once or twice a month and mostly just lost. I did win a pretty big tournament one time, though, and cashed a couple thousand. The bad beat jackpot doesn't apply to tournaments (cash games only) at the casino I normally went to, which sucks because I took the worst fucking beat of all time way back when. I flopped a full house, other guy went all in, obviously I called, and he hit runner runner four of a kind. That was like 15 years ago and I still think about it periodically. Poker can be rough on the ol' constitution.

    Thanks, no doubt it can get frustrating. I think all but once in these tourneys I've been all in on my final hand with the better hand and been out-flopped, -turned, or -rivered.

    I'm not a fan of rebuys either but generally I don't use one and it does fatten the pot. And they are only allowed during first four levels.

    The tournament I won I sucked out big time at the final table. I was short stacked when it was four or five way and beat Aces with like K2 or something just to stay alive. I essentially won every coin flip situation during the tournament - seems like you kind of have to get that sort of luck in order to win. I don't know that I was ever all in and behind until the final four or five players, though. I had people shove when I had the nuts a bunch of times, which is always nice.
