    So like how far away from the house were you? Would have been cool if in the movie it synced up with an explosion!

    Less than 5 minutes walk away. Yeah, the horror movie did not help lol.

    My view is that a bad beat means you get it all in with the best hand and get sucked out on. She didn't get it all in until the river, and in fact it was me who shoved - she called. The betting before the river was pretty tame - she bet 1/2 the pot (163) on the flop and called my raise to 326. We both checked the turn. She bet 1146 on the river, I shoved 9137 and she called. Not a bad beat, just a tough hand to get away from.

    Hey MrCaspan, I following the Blog of "BlackRain79" whom to me has a good strategy for killing it at the micros. I get daily emails on poker strategy and they are all great read. He has the #1 Winnings of All-time at the micros book which to me is good strategy you can take in any poker game really. What range of hands to play online depending on 6 or 9 at the table. All and all its helped me with my online game.

    Interesting find Henry. My biggest question regarding PS dealing has always been "Is the deck shuffled before the hand is dealt (as in live poker and the hand is predetermined before the first card is dealt) or are the cards to be dealt determined as each street is dealt (a random number generator determines the next card dealt only after all action is completed on a particular street)?" Your video (assuming that it's legit, and I have no reason to think it isn't) confirms that PS deals hands the same way as is done in live poker, which is good to know. I've never really been a believer in the "conspiracy theories" circulating about how PS deals to create action etc.; PS has no reason to try to "game" the system - they make lots of easy money off the rake and buy-ins. Why risk losing the golden goose by rigging anything?

    Now cheating on the "other side" of the computer is a completely different topic. Collusion and the use of RTS software is undoubtedly an issue with online poker so you still have to tread carefully.
