    Hahaha, that's brilliant. Do you use pokertracker or something similar? Would be interested in seeing a few graphs etc. of his if you have any.

    I imagine he sledges in the chat window...

    Haha, am having a visual now of Murali getting a super hand, and his eyes bulging out of his head in excitement.

    Yeah I've played against him live at Star City. Was good fun (and profitable)

    Sorry for the late reply, but...

    The odds of getting any of the above are tremendously low. Why even risk the chips? But it all depends on the situation.

    Two pair-8.6%
    Trips-4.3%

    Unless I've gone wrong, that's not really an ideal situation.

    Once Moon was at that final table it was like his ego had inflated, he was trying to pull these crap plays we never would have seen him try in previous days. If he just tightened up with his huge chip stack then i'm pretty sure he would have won it(glad he didn't though). Still haunted by Ivey not moving in with those Jacks too, was the make or break stage of his tournament imo.

    Where do all you guys play?
    I've been on PKR.com, don't mind the game play bit of a laugh plus they don't let yanks on there which is a bonus haha. Play on FT only for the nightly freeroll for your country - they put up $100 for NZ freeroll and only $40 for much larger countries freerolls seems pretty absurd but i'm not complaining cool how everyone playing is from the same country too

    PKR is too big and awkward for my poor little laptop to cope with. Especially if I want to multi-table.

    I play at Everest, just because I got a free deposit for there so it was a good place to start. The client runs smoothly and the choice of tournament formats is great if you're into Sit'n'Goes, but if you're in the wrong timezone you'll never find anyone to play with.

    Full Tilt's the place to be for the rakeback, if you're with one of its affiliates.

    Man I think i've got some mental deficiency because no matter how many times i've tried I just cannot multi-table aye. Whenever i'm making a decision on one table and then the sound comes to make a move on the other table it makes me feel really aggravated, and sooner or later i've tilted out on both tables lol. I even try on FT 2 freerolls at once and the same thing happens! Oh well at least I know my limitations lol. Only learnt the rules in July, best personal effort was in the PKR $10,000 Open $18 buy-in 17th/635 $85 prize. Thats the most i've ever spent on a single buy-in too so was quite stoked lol

    I play on a few different sites myself, depending on what type of games I wanna play. At the moment I'm practicing my SNG and MTT play so I'm playing on Pokerstars but when I want to play cash I'm on Chili because of the rakeback deal I've got.

    Overall, though, I prefer playing live by far but Star City is a terrible Casino so I wait until I go interstate to play usually

    For those who play for real money, what do you feel the step up between play games and the lowest level of actual money games? I can win easily with play money but I expect it's a lot more serious when cash is at stake, but I suppose if your strategies are sound it shouldn't matter?
