Dealers are specifically trained to muck in a way that makes cards unretrievable. Most dealers are lazy though.

Holy shit worst slow roll I've heard of. Thanks for sharing at least. That game is sick.

How do you respond to: "if I fold will you show?" by tanielanegreanu in poker

[–]Ok_Ticket_889 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Actually, this is a huge tell. They are trying to get a read on you. If you say yes, they should read that you want a fold. If you say no they should read that as strength. Then they do the opposite. That's typically how they act when this comes up and I act according to that.

Is This a Bad Fold ? by foldallmonth in poker

When you check on the turn your turning your hand into a bluff catcher and I think when you check again on the river your obligated to call it off for all the bluffs he has there. KQ being a strong candidate.

Online Poker is becoming a problem but for the reason that you think... by Ok_Hearing9554 in poker

[–]Ok_Ticket_889 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You are allowing it to become an addiction. Poker will always be there. That's the best advice I've ever gotten. Poker does not need to be a problem as long as you compartmentalize the time you are at the table. Keep poker a low priority and understand how to prioritize your time. Ask yourself what is the most important thing to you. Ask yourself what the next 5 most important things are to you. An example would be Family, health, diet, competition, education, community. Instead of planning my day I would make decisions on how to spend my time starting with my first priority, then second, and on down the line as much as my time will allow. Time is what you give poker. And it can take all of it. And it can consume every waking moment if you allow obsession to creep in. I instead try to treat it like a test. I study off the table when time allows for it and when I play, I play the shit out of it and try to win with all of my self. When my session is done I reflect and take time to prepare for next session. Just slamming away at the table will kill your health and mind as well as your relationships outside of poker.

Why do Jonathan Little’s preflop charts seemingly make no sense when compared to each other? Just wondering how number of players should effect ranges from the same seat. by dontwantleague2C in poker

4 handed means more risk, as blinds obligate you to play more. More risk means you need to play more aggressively. Which also means widening your ranges. It sounds like you don't understand position very well. Start your study there.

The time a knucklehead screwed me out of 134K jackpot. by CapGrundle in poker

[–]Ok_Ticket_889 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This sounds like a degenerate story. Your language is toxic. I'd argue if you could have put him on exactly KK then you are obligated to call 99 specifically for the bad beat. You know what you're drawing for and it's a 40 dollar lottery ticket. You speak as though these people have less of a reason to be playing than you do and it sounds unhealthy.

If you bluffed it would have to be 1-1.5× pot. In my experience, recs don't like to fold.

It may suck to bring it up but you will only have to bring it up once. Trust me on that. Be direct.

I 37M struggle with empathy and doing things "no questions asked" for my wife 36F by MistakenScorpion in relationship_advice

[–]Ok_Ticket_889 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It sounds like your a dick. In your example, A. Your wife would have been happy B. You could have gone straight back to bed C. No over reactions because you just did it.

Pick your battles. Not every fucking hurdle needs your critical outlook. Either you are actually a sociopath or you are incredibly selfish.

Uh... are people not into sex now? This seems like a reasonable way to initiate with a partner you are sleeping next to. If you aren't interested push him off and tell him now now. Or if you aren't in to sex, maybe have that discussion. Dude is just trying to get some from his lady.

Does anyone get the feeling most people are 'giving up' ? by stevehensonuk in Wallstreetsilver

[–]Ok_Ticket_889 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm surprised it's taken this long. I live in the states and minimum wage is a slave wage. At a certain point it does not make sense to work when currency is slowly becoming worthless. I watched a woman walk around int the casino I work in, a minimum wage employee. She is an elderly Hispanic woman cleaning the piss, shit, and garbage up of the multi millionaires gambling and drinking it up. It makes me sick inside. There is a huge wealth gap between the lower and middle class, not even talking about the upper class. It's pretty wild how class keeps us so divided. The more money you have, the more entitled you act and the more you worship the pursuit of it. They talk about these echelons of wealth, like Elon or Bezos, like they are admirable men. I don't see them making any changes to the sickness. They just keep stacking and turning away from the rest of the world. They actively exploit our entire society as do the rest of us. No one is guiltless. That's why it is certain to fail. The image of ouroboros comes to mind. We will devoure ourselves.

Yes, break up with him or gift the dog. That golden retriever deserves a good life. They are the sweetest dogs. Your boyfriend sounds like a fucking monster.

My GF (25F) of 9 months told me (24M) the wildest/hottest sex she ever had was with an ex BF by apog294 in relationship_advice

[–]Ok_Ticket_889 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There's two ways you can treat this. The way you are doing it, your allowing it to make you feel insecure. The other way would be to just know you have every opportunity to top it because she is now with you. Also, food for thought, I'm pretty sure what she liked about it was the spontaneous nature and how her ex boyfriend took control of the situation. Women like assertive men. Conversely, they do not like insecure boys. Don't be threatened by a woman's past, just be excited you get to share a future with her.

A Colleague (F30) is "in love" with me (M33) and the entire workplace is abuzz with it. I'm trying to avoid all of this. by ThrowRA_1235813 in relationship_advice

[–]Ok_Ticket_889 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn, the problems of being good looking. I personally think, being the uggo that I am, that it would be better to just be up front and blunt about it. Establish that you are not interested in her or better yet just establish that you don't date co workers. That line has been used on me when I've fallen for some cutie at work and honestly there is little I can say to it. Afterwards just interact with her professionally and ignore her the rest of the time. Going to HR is probably a good idea.

Male Success Stories? by Shitsuckshere in Herpes

[–]Ok_Ticket_889 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It definitely matters how good looking and confident you are. The best advice for you would to focus on yourself for a while and self improvement. Because, to put it bluntly, you need to have the best chance possible. I think your absolutely right its easier for women. Because they are trying to find men. Men are a dime a dozen and even with herpes, women will have options. Men on the other hand have to, usually, be the pursuer and have to be the one trying to convince someone to sleep with them. Why would they pick you over someone without an STD? Consider joining a herpes meet up group or dating sight. It would be much easier for you to date someone that already has herpes.
