Re only seeing a flop with this hand or that hand, maybe you haven't seen Gus Hansen play. He'll win hands on a 3 5 off.
That's just his reputation as one of the best, scaring players away.

Haven't talked to OldSchool or the other mods yet - but who wants a Poker board under the Gen Sports board? Obviously all of you, but now's the time to put your hand up.
Great idea!

Ive never been impressed by Gus Hansen, I always thought he was a player built by reputation more then by his skill and so forth. I think if you play Gus like any normal poker player you will beat him.

For those interested, I purchased a DVD a couple months back, Final Table Poker which is a final table with commentary (intermediate or advanced) by Phil Gordon. Goes through 20 or so strategies and includes a Starting Hand Guide and an Odds & Outs Chart. Great addition to the DVD is some funny poker commercials. For US $25, it's a worthwhile purchase.

Very good idea Appleyard. I know that if you do it will be much easier for other Poker fans to find a place to talk about it. A lot of the Poker fans don't even know about this thread

So, since I replied to it first, I get to moderate this poker board, right? :p

I think it's just that he got very exposed by the WPT and people found how to play him and beat him over time.

There are a lot of good poker sites online, too, especially for beginners learning the game. I recommend:

http://www.cardplayer.com/
Here you can follow pro poker tourneys, and it's very useful for tips, too.

http://www.foldorraise.com/
This is a site where you can play pre-flop and post-flop hands (and even create some yourself), and even hands from WPT events. A very, very good site that I would recommend to people serious about improving their game.

http://www.homepokertourney.com/
A nice site that is useful for people wanting to set up home tournaments. Gives tips on everything from hosting multi-table tournaments, to building your very own poker table.

Also depending on how serious people are there are some good books out there as well.
Wont name them all but
SS1 & 2
Lee Jones-Low Limit Holdem
The Theory of Poker-skanlsky

And also just to give you an intro into the game watch the movie rounders with Matt Damon & Edward Norton

There are also loads more forums like 2+2,bet the pot,PS org, UPF

Well, 71 year old Texas Dolly just put on a clinical display of hold 'em poker on Fox8. Close to inflicting physical pain in heads up as Lee Watkinson made one bad call after another. Actually, Doyle played brilliantly and Lee was simply no match even though at one point he was a better than 3 to 1 chip leader.
