    Official WSOP 2020 ONLINE Thread

    I am creating this thread to discuss WSOP Online events, deep runs, etc. I guess a lot more IPBers will play this year as no travelling is required. This thread could also be used as a reference to buy/sell pieces for pretty much every event (it can easily be done through the GG Poker client) and share a sweat if someone goes deep in a tourney. Good luck to all playing!

    GL all. Bullet 2 at the $100 opener at 7pm tonight and give the $400 Colossus a spin next weekend hopefully.

      Good luck! I already fired 4 bullets in the 100$ Opener and didn't make it to Day 2. On top of that my poker laptop died this morning (not sure if that's a bad thing though). Looking good so far!

        Made day 2 of the opener. Only 20bb. I haven't played tournaments in years. I have been playing like a lunatic in big runner small buyin fields trying to put myself in as many tough spots as possible to get a feel for things. Deep I am fine as I have played cash for years. 10-20bb stacks I have a decent idea of what is going on. 20-60bb stack range I am all at sea most of the time.

        One thing I have learned is that people don't fold. You need to be very value heavy and fuck balance. Although I am sure that changes in bigger buyins.

            Thanks, also playing the $500 super sat tomorrow for a ME ticket. One time, please. I have a ticket for the $400 PLO opener. I am in two minds whether to play it or let it get converted to T$ as I am a huge, huge PLO fish. Feels like burning money but would be a very fun gamble.

              Is there any way to disable that slow motion river when players are all in. Tilting the bejaysus outta me.

                I don't think you can turn it off.

                    Best feature of the software, no better feeling than to start turning the river, see that you hit your 3 outer, put the card back and let it take the full 5 seconds or so to turn over completely

                      btw There is a good shortish video here with Dara who used to post here on the basics of sat strategy to give some fundamentals for those playing them. From what I have observed and some of the stupid punting I did myself in them before looking into the strat a bit more. They are insanely soft in general on GG at the moment for all the events.

                          Disconnected, wonderful. I can't count on two hands the numbers of times I have been disconnected over the last 2 days.

                            It's a GG problem I think, I just logged in and took forever to open the client, tournaments have now been paused. Great timing!

                              Thanks, just got logged back in. Looks like the start to the final day of the opener has broken the software. The client has been extremely buggy for me. Just randomly shutting down completely and disconnecting me all over the place. I guess they have never had numbers like this before on the site.

                              Edit - Ha, disconnected again just after the first-hand resumes. This is a joke. Why resume if it is not stable?

                                This is horrible, have the 1,111 open waiting to start (hopefully they cancel it and give refund because I basically can't play, software keeps crashing and now I can't even login), in the Master I am getting blinded out. Hope to at least manage to login and unregister from the other tournaments, I am already tilted and haven't even played a single hand

                                  That's is me done with playing anything big buyin wise.

                                          OMG that hurt. AA all in preflop for a top 20 chip stack with 37 tickets. He rivers a straight with the 99

                                          Still in but only 10bb

                                            Out of the ME sat. Double in the 100 opener. That hand in the sat is going to haunt my dreams tonight. Time for a walk before I tilt it away in the 100.

                                                Looks like they have cancelled tournaments until next week. Shambles. I have the day off tomorrow to play this thing.

                                                  @ionapaul What percentage are you paying in the opener?

                                                  There was a total of 29,603 entrants. At a 13% payout that would mean 3850 players get paid which would mean the bubble had already bust considering I think there were only 3700 players left when play was stopped yesterday. The client/lobby was so messed up it was hard to work out what the payouts were and the tournament seems to have disappeared from the lobby today.

                                                        Thanks, I thought I seen 3700 paid at one stage in the lobby, and then it was 3000 at another stage. So by your figures, they are paying just over 10%. Seems quite low for such a large field.

I got disconnected about 4-5 times during play in it. I am not sure how many hands I lost in that time if any but man it was so fucking tilting at the time. Broke a decent pair of headphones

Really tilting thing is how all the good sattys are on during the day like the $50 BI's/$100'[s for the bracelet events and then very few of these in the evenings - it would be great to sort that out and offer more of these for the 9-5'ers

Playing on pokio at 50/1 both playing circa 300bb deep. Utg player whose username I know but he doesn't know it's me he opens 3x with kq suited i min 3 bet. I allow it to be checked to the river cos I want him to see my hand. 3 or 4 hands later I pay him off a tenner on the river with bottom pair which I know can't possibly win but it reinforces the fact that I'm a fish in his head. 2 or 3 orbits later my man opens with 10s I 3 bet 88 he 4 bets I call. Flop comes 842 rainbow he leads I min raise and he whacks it all in. Against any one else at the table he doesn't do his stack in but because I had created a lovely fishy image in his head he assumed his overpair was miles in front when actually he was in a world of hurt. I held for a change and won a nice pot. I asked him a couple of days later had he come across this player username just me which was actually me. His response verbatim " don't talk to me he's the greatest fish of all time that cunt 3 bet me with 10 4 off once and then got lucky on m

After I stopped laughing which took a while I said to him I couldn't agree more he's the biggest fish ever but you'll never believe this I found out who he is . I said to him you're never going to believe who it is. He goes who is he cmon whacker ya have to tell me. I said are you sure you want to know. He goes yeah yeah tell has he got a decent bankroll cos if he has I'm taking it off him cos that cunt is the nut worst I've come across in twenty years of playing. At this point I owned up and confessed it was me. I learnt swear words I'd never heard in the minutes that followed needless to say. Makes me lol now just thinking about it. 1-0 whacker

Had a good shot for a very decent stack but JJ no good against A2 from the squeezer all in pre. The mental fortitude you need to play these things for a living must be massive

I bet the river for value with the K high flush after getting c/r on the turn and check to on the river. The guy just called with the nut flush. It was a paired board but there were so few combos of houses. I dunno it was an interesting hand.

                                                                                                            Edit - Actually thinking about it again it is prob good on his part. I think I would have found the fold had he shoved so if I am only calling with boats I guess calling in his spot is fine.

                                                                                                            It is actually a bit of a wake-up call. Spent so much time playing the donkey sats that you forget these are thinking players not just c/r turns for fun and then barrelling it off with air on the river.

So if you wanted to work out the difference for a percentage swap of some kind. I am busy with the pokers at the moment. 365/215, whatever that works out.

I am not even sure if that is fair or how these differences are worked out. Let me know if you wanna go head or think it should be different. No sweat if you don't as I understand the chance of you cashing is higher.

                                                                                                                      Big stack opens from HiJack. I call 66 in the SB with 31 BB. The big stack in the BB squeeze to 10. Original raiser folds and I stuff it. Run into AA. My thinking when I completed the SB was that he would squeeze this spot liberally and if he raised the plan was always to stuff it. Thinking about it more I am not sure if he doesn't just complete with his playable stuff which takes a huge amount of trash out of his range I want to be squeezing.

                                                                                                                      Overthinking it or terrible?
