That's chips, not dollar amount.

Oh, now I get it, that was taken before the tournament was over.

Haha yeah, the difference between 6th and 5th was about a hundred bucks though, and the gaps became even bigger after that. First place was about $1,2k, and that would be pretty neat of course, but I was pretty short stacked and had no choice but to move all-in on A7s, too bad that bleep guy had QQ :)

So, who else plays poker? I know SweetSkater does from when I last came bragging here about some prize, but I figure that at least a few of you others do it every now and then as well?

I was thinking the exact same thing. Blackfang, I wish I could've seen your reaction if you bought that and tried to turn it on, realizing it wasn't a laptop.

On occasion, not great, not bad. Been in one or two real-money situations, but never did well in those.

About a tenth as tiring as "Blue Screen of Death LMAO". Yes, Apple fanboys. We still use Windows 98. Would you like to come over and take turns playing Ski Free?

I use a Mac at work, and a PC at home. I've never had a noticeable virus on either. Each has its ups and downs. Neither is better but GOD DAMN, how is there any disagreement about which fan base is mouthier and more self-righteous?

I play at pokerstars, I played dollar 9 person sit n go's for awhile, then I moved to .01/.02 cash tables, then to .02/.05, then had some sick bad luck (honestly, not pretend bad luck) and now I'm trying to beat .01/.02 6 max cash tables, still running a little bad, and still learning. It can be such an intricate game, it's really entertaining, but I take losing to such awful players worse than I should, so it stresses me out.

Maybe I should play some tournaments? I've never really played in a tournament with more than 45-90 people before, and those were just 25 cent games.

Tournaments are more fun for me, I have cashed in a few 300+ player ones (it is where the majority of my winnings have been). It is less likely to get in the money but if you play right then you will eventually crack it and keep finishing in them top spots. You do play differently but I'm sure if you read up on some tactics you will get it easy enough.

I am like you that when I lose to a bad beat I tilt quite badly, which is why I take big breaks quite often. I have started playing live more and it's much more fun (imo).

I really like tournaments and sit&go's the best, all of them doesn't completely nullify the advantage that crazy players with loads of money to throw away sometimes have, but freezeouts are great if you're more of a textbook player with limited bank roll :)

Playing live can be great fun, I am on such a bad streak on live play though so atm I hate it :(

Just play in the low stakes/buyin games where all the people who don't know how to play are. I was heads up with someone for £50 who thought she had high card ace when she had 2 pair on the river.

Needless to say I beat her. >:D

I play poker with my brother's pals. Basically, I wait until they're all either drunk, stoned or both and join in, play it safe until I have a good hand. Last time I arrived with £3.50 and left with £20 :D Hardly in the hundreds though!

All the people here who knows how to play are either at least pretty good, or too cheap to play :( I must say that I am among the "better" ones in this gang that usually plays live, but I have been semi-unlucky in every live game for so long now that I basically consider the money that I enter with lost the moment I buy in. That kinda sucks, considering that if the cards went my way every once in a while it wont take much for them to pay me off xP

Not that I have any money, but I'm sure there's ways to play online for a few £, not that interested in the winning, just playing :D

kthanx.

There's a good Hold 'Em app on Facebook, apart from the option to buy more (worthless) chips for real money it's free, and people actually play pretty seriously despite that. Definitely a great place to play while learning the basics :) When you feel ready you can sign up at Pokerstars, FullTilt, or some other poker site; they all have loads of cash tables and tournaments, so you should find something that suits the amount you are willing to play with.

Anybody else have problems getting on FGL? For like a day now it have seemed to be down, but during this time I got feedback on a game, so I tried it with a proxy and it worked. What could be causing this? When I go there it appears completely offline, and I don't have this problem with any other site =/

Is there a Flash add-on that pixelises the vectors? I'm not ssure if it's possible but it'd be sweet.

You mean Pixel Tools? It doesn't pixelize already created vectors, but you can create certain vectors that are pixalized.

Also, I'm so happy this iPhone thing is going so smoothly. I can now easily just send my artist the .app file and it will automatically sync onto his iPhone without all the trouble of getting him Xcode, getting a new enrollment plan, etc. Woot!

Not exactly sure what you want, but either Export as image or cacheAsBitmap (the as3 function) could be what you're looking for.

Wait... iPhone apps are just .apps?
Anything extra needed apart from Flash to develop them? With the projector do you need the .swf AND the .app?

Well, not directly, but still
www.collegehumor.com

On the right if you scroll down a bit, there's a section that says hot links. He's in the group of new ones from today with the link title saying "This game only has one level, but that level gets pretty hard around level 15".

some of you may or may not know the site, but it's got a show on MTV and something like 1.4 million unique daily viewers, so it seems rather round of applause worthy.
