I live in pickering
I've been to rama like twice in the last year

Yes they used to have limit there sometimes even 50/1 but once they started spreading NL games a few years ago limit died. 20/40 might still run very rarely.

I play 20/40-30/60 in port perry all the time. Where else can you find a limit omaha high game. I used to play the 50/1 on tuesdays in brantford but it hasnt been running lately. It probably will pick up again soon.

Sorry TWLLM, I sit down at rama to make money, not friends. I do focus on things like betting patterns etc etc etc, however I don't think table image gets the credit it deserves, thats why I brought it up, was just looking for some basc tips, and I think I got some good ones. Trash talking the macho guys seems really profitable. Thanks for the help, we'll see how it works out..

Oh, cool. I didn't realize you lived in the GTA - remind me *not* to run into you in a game (if you've ever heard the theory of what would happen if matter and anti-matter collided, it might also apply to TWLLM colliding with 1/TWLLM - same reason I don't ever want to run into Swoop, lol - don't want to disturb space/time too much ). Plus you'd own me anyway, lol.

Yeah Port Perry is a fish pond, I just never managed to get there as often as I liked. And yes, a fixed limit Omaha hi game is pretty strange but the charity casinos aren't allowed to spread nl/pl games b/c of the legal maximums on betting.

LOL I know you're sitting down to make money, not friends. But making money by making friends... is this too hard a concept to grasp? I told you how it could work out quite plainly. Do you have any aspirations in life that are higher than playing at Rama? What about playing in soft home and private games you can only get into by knowing the right people, and getting along with them?


Overall, this thread is an example of someone coming in asking a question, trying to elicit the response they already want to believe (which is that being obnoxious will be profitable), then 3/4 people tell them they're wrong, they ignore it, because one person says they're right. Seeking confirmation, not answers. Truth is no matter what anyone said, so long as someone said something which confirmed what you already believed, you would have reached the conclusion you did.

Truth be told, I would believe Joeyjoejoe before Swoop or I, and Swoop, while he has plenty live experience, has serious issues of 'causation' imo. He acts out because its in his nature, and he wins anyway, so he infers that he's winning b/c he's acting out. Really, he'd probably win anyway. Joey, on the other hand, gave you the straight deal.

In terms of table image, you get that more by your play than how you act externally, because only the smart players respond to table image, and they can see through acts. The drunks you're trying to decieve, won't notice the difference anyway, so it's futile.


But as I said, you weren't here to get answers, you were here to get confirmation, so ignore all of us and do what you were going to do anyway.

Never knew that, why would they allow a 30/60 game but not a 1/2 NL game?

And I do have aspirations in life lol I'm a business student at Trent, but this is besides the point. I think I did get some solid advice and I did get some confirmation aswell, so thanks to everyone. And if anyone has more tips on table image fire away

Yeah, the charity casinos are not allowed to permit betting in increments of more than $100 - hence, 30/60 or even 50/100 is legal, but 1/2nl is not legal unless they made some rule like you can't bet more than 100 in a single increment. It is a poorly designed rule imo, it makes sense for like blackjack and house games, but not for poker.

For what it's worth Joey is a much better cash game player than me so i'd take his advice over mine any day. I'm just telling you how I do it; but of course I find it enjoyable to send livedonks on monkey tilt so I would do it anyway and long as it doesn't cost me money since I play to have fun as well as make money.

It does help though against some people (i'm thinking mainly about setting Michael Pedley on monkey tilt in the Aussie Millions $1650 to the extent he put a cash bounty on me out of his pocket and then spewed his stack off - hidden brag obv)

That said, if I can be the friend to someone to the extent that they will softplay me, i'll do that. Find out what works against each type of player and do it.
