    The weird thing was he won it in Razz...everyone especially Daniel Negreanu said he would never win one in a non hold'em event.

    Where do you play? Do you feel safe playing online?

    BTW, I'm a hold em guy.

    I used to play online for money until Black Friday. Built a $20 deposit into about $600 just playing $1 or $2 sit n go tournaments. I was playing on Ultimatebet and still havne't seen my money and probably never will. Good thing I'm only out $20. Now I only play for real money at casinos and home games. I play pokerstars online just for fun when bored. I did play exclusively holdem like you do but got kinda burnt out once you figure out all the betting patterns and can read most situations that's why i have switched over to omaha Hi/Lo. Just hard to find a good Omaha game in a casino so I play holdem there.

    I have a friend (who happens to be a dealer at Santa Fe) who owed Full Tilt something like $1300 whenBlack Friday hit. Needless to say, Black Friday didn't bother him one bit. :cheer:

    Agree about Omaha Hi/Lo - the most challenging game, and one that few people play well! That's always good :)

    haha exactly..that's how all the famous poker players made their money back in the day. Playing against people that didn't really have a clue. After the poker boom it's harder to find that one person at the holdem table to take advantage of.
