    Gogogo. Hoping to see a few extra players today. We are nearing the halfway point and people might start needing points.

    Anyone can play decent poker when they are getting good cards. Tommy Angelo talked about the rule of reciprocality. It is a good point.

    It gets fun when all hope is lost. You're faced with a choice - stop playing or play anyway and go wild, annoying those with something left to play for. I'd choose the latter option.

    I started very well, but then I lost with KK against flush on the river. However, it was another gg. Congratulations for the winner.

    Small turnout. If anyone wants to make any changes maybe they should post in the Gauntlet main thread.

    Glad you remembered this, dneureiter. jyms is always needing the tourney id and I was going to start making it a procedure for me to post it each gauntlet game I play, and put it in the game thread.
    It takes 2 years to learn to talk, but a lifetime to learn when to shut up.

    We both ranked 9th, so I think we'll be picking up equal points, which is fine. But if keith gets more than me, that's not right and I'll complain like a bitch about that. And boy can I complain when I get a strop on.

    What an awesome article. I have not seen an article so interesting since I learned about Degrees Of Freedom. Degrees Of Freedom have helped with my decisions in Open Face Poker mostly, but they apply to so many other things in our lives too. I will probably read the the
    reciprocality article 4 times since that is how I learn things of huge significance.

    I have no idea how this works.

    jyms should totally give us different points so we can argue about this over the coming months.

    Actually I started adding it to the top of every game thread. I don't forget the numbers, I just haven't played so I haven't downloaded the results and the results page in home games doesn't show the ID number. I have fixed the issue.

    Actually, Ong was in first for about an hour because I put the game 7 results in the game one slot and erased game one where Ong didn't play. But I solved that issue.

    Only the top 12 of 20 games count. All 12 of my top scores will have better than a ninth place finish, OngBonga, no need
    to worry for months about your 9th place or 10th place finish because it will be moot. I did see Keith as the only person
    knocked out posted in the lobby before the lobby got updated when you went out. OngBonga, you are in a very tight race with the Keith. You may be able to catch Keith, but I do not think I can.

    would have been so funny if ongie had seen it and started crowing about leading .
