I work as a PHP developer at Pentalog where we develop the largest dating site in Europe.

I thrive in challenging environments and am never afraid to get my hands dirty.

My passions include computer programming, psychology and poker.

comment Can a bettor concede his hand without showing it?
I mean the classic version: Start from the button and go to his left and keep going till you find a player with cards. This guy is the one in earliest position.

comment Starting a Friendly Poker Ring
Remove the couch from your living room, and bring in about 2 tables. Put them side-by-side and you have a poker table. Go to a neighbor and borrow some chairs. The dealer part is more tricky, depends on where you live... PS: You do realize I'm ironic, right ? Or am I ?

comment How to maximize expectation with pocket aces and an Aces Cracked bonus running
Is this live play or online ? If you can still remember (probably just approximately), it would be great to post the bet/raise/call amounts. You say bet, but not how much you bet. You say raise, but not how much you raise etc.

comment Are seat re-assignments random in multi-table tournaments?
"it varies from from one casino to the next". What about WSOP, WSOPE, WPT, EPT etc. ? I googled it and couldn't find anything...

comment Best way to play poker online for playchips
I believe that, if you're in the US, you can't play on PokerStars with real money... the question is about virtual money... or am I missing something ?

comment Should I call opponent's flop re-raise with trips?
@Jeffrey The intentions of that bigger bet (more than $60) is to decrease the chance that the opponent will raise (because it's more than the pot), and increase the chance he will only call. Maybe you trigger some defensive protection in him or something... By doing this, you can see the turn cheaper and have a better picture about where you stand in that hand. If you don't agree, it's perfect. It's poker, not math.

Thanks for your answer. Fairness does indeed seem important in these cases, I wouldn't want to play a hand in the big blind and then be moved to a table where I'm again in the big blind.

comment Easy to memorize starting hand strategy
It's a good thing to have something like that but the fact is that you only get hands that fit that criteria rarely.
