There are a lot of ways to distract your opponents or to get them out of their game. These are the techniques that you might want to use if you are getting desperate already. One of the things that you can do to distract your opponent is to get him or her tipsy or drunk. This is obviously a below the belt way of distracting your opponent but if you get really desperate to win then you might have to bring out the tequila. A lot of people out there have a low tolerance for alcohol so with just a few shots of tequila, they may be going all in with a two seven off suit.
Aside from getting your opponents drunk, you might want to try to distract them with a person of the opposite sex. If you have a lot of guys playing on the table then make sure that you invite a pretty girl so that the guys will be thrown off their game. If you have a lot of girls then make sure that you invite a hunk to the Toto HK table so that the girls will try to charm the guy instead of focus on the poker game. The opposite sex is certainly a great way to distract anyone.
If members of the opposite sex and alcohol are not working then maybe you should drown your guests with a lot of food. Sometimes if participants at the poker table are very full, they tend to get sleepy and sloppy. You will be able to take advantage of your opponent’s sleepiness during the poker match. When a person is sleepy and groggy, he or she will not care so much about the poker game. He or she will simply want to go home and …
The 2008 World Championship of Online Poker kicked off yesterday, September 5th, at toto hk ! In total, there will be 33 different events with over $30 million guaranteed throughout them! There are still many satellites running until the main event, which is on September 21st. The buy-in is $5,200 with $10 million guaranteed, if that’s too steep you can try to qualify for as low as $4.40.
Event 1 of the WCOOP 2008 proved that this years series was going to the the biggest ever. The game was no-limit hold’em 6-max with a $215 buy-in and at least $1,000,000 guaranteed. However, the players laughed at PokerStars as 7,217 registered bringing the prize pool up to $1.4 million! With that many people registered, 1080 would walk away with at least $303 with a seat at the final table being worth $23k. But all eyes were on the top prize, which was $212k. All of the toughest online and live pros were ready to kick off the biggest online tournament series ever!
The structure and payouts of this years WCOOP changed a bit, bringing mixed reactions. The most noteable change was in terms of the payouts, which was very steep weighted towards 1st place. Just to show an example, if you made the final 3 tables of event 1, which would mean you took 13th – 18th out of 7,217, you would earn .25% of the prize pool or $3,600. This seems pretty low for such a large field. The winner would be awarded a huge 15% or $212,179. To compare to the last Sunday Million, 7,212 players registered, 13th place was worth .35% $5,250, and 1st place 12.3% or $184,500. The WCOO events seem much more top heavy.
Also, players only started with 3,000 chips compared to 10,000 in …
