Antonio Cristallini sparks debate about men in Ladies tournaments

Antonio Cristallini sparks debate about loophole i...

Ladies tournaments are an essential part of the schedule for a given stage or circuit. The presence of women at the tables is remarkable, and with an event exclusively for female players, the participation of women increases more and more, creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for new players. At least, that’s how it should be.

This is because, based on American legislation, an event cannot prevent men from participating in the traditional Ladies Event. Of course, the situation becomes uncomfortable for everyone, and there are measures to make the practice unfeasible (such as the US$10,000 buy-in with a 90% discount for women in the WSOP Ladies Event), but for legal reasons, if a man wants to take part in a women’s tournament in the USA, he can.

The discussion is quite old and controversial, but the vast majority of people (and common sense) say that men shouldn’t take part in this type of event. Recently, professional gamer and content creator Antonio Cristallini left a request on his Twitter account: “men, stop entering women’s tournaments and making the rest of us look bad. Honestly, every guy who doesn’t is an asshole.”

Cristallini’s tweet was met with mixed responses. The user “JoeyBallCap”, for example, said that poker is not a physical sport and that there is no advantage to being a man or a woman when playing:

While another user, by the name of Zack Allen, reinforced the issue of a welcoming environment for female players and agreed with the practice of exclusive events:

The argument used by some of the players who sign up for these tournaments is that, because it is a sport of the mind, there is no advantage to being male or female. But the vast majority of female players say that the advantage of the Ladies Event is not in the level of the field or the prize pool, but in the more welcoming atmosphere, which increases female participation and even inspires new players to take part in the competition.

This issue seems to be ignored by the men who play in the tournament. Some say they do it to “protest”, but the truth is that no one would be harmed if the Ladies Event were played only by women. Unfortunately, some people can’t think beyond their own navels; it’s not a legislative issue as much as it is a matter of common sense.

Austria’s “Amygdalus” won the Venom PKO event for $6,860,500.

“Amygdaluss” from Austria took first place in the...

The sixth Venom PKO $5 Million GTD tournament concluded on the evening of November 3-4, 2022, with the winner taking home a total prize pool of $6,860,500. It’s not exactly a record-breaking number, but thanks to the huge prize money, Austrian player “Amygdaluss” received the largest prize in the history of the event. Amygdaluss’ total amount is $826,533.

No bonus record

Looks like a new convention is on the Winning Network Established in a major tournament. For some reason, attendance at the same event in May has been much higher than in the fall for the past two years.

The fifth Venom PKO was victorious with 2,744 players taking part and a total prize pool of $5 million GTD, for a total prize pool of $6,860,500.

While two events of a similar nature were held in early 2021 and 2022, more than 7.1 million U.S. players each won. The reward for Venom is still far from the record $5,785,500 reward last September.

It is well worth it.

Due to individual success, this competition still surpasses all its predecessors in several aspects:

The total prize money of Austrian player “Amygdaluss” is 826,533 US dollars, including 342,903 US dollars in prize money (5 rounds of the finals), maintaining the highest prize money record for the first place in “Venom” in PKO history.

Unfortunately, we do not know the identity of this player, although he is apparently a regular at high stakes tournaments. The poker player played 466 MTTs on the Winning network with an average buy-in (ABI) of $400, making $45,000 in profits from February to November this year.

Final Table

This time The eight best players in the Venom tournament can be considered one of many, as at least one big name from the poker world is absent, while two players from Belarus survived the “gauntlet” of the satellite tournament to reach the finals.

Despite seven players taking part and over 30 billion in chips, the game took less than two and a half hours to decide the winner. Here is the list of players and the order in which they left the table:

“Justicepeanut (USA) – $75,322. Short was the most experienced player at the table since Made about $1 million playing WPN games since 2014, waiting for AK and triggering them preflop, but “Amygdaluss” pocket TT proved to be the superior hand.

“BiTaMiHka” ( Belarus) – $100,501. She could also be considered the “victim” of the Austrian player. She called a big pot on the flop with AK, had an ace-high on the turn, and had a nut flush draw .On the river, she hit the king, giving top pair, and backed her opponent’s all-in move, but her opponent also had a queen on the flop. The hand ended with an all-in fold.

“birdgang8” (USA) – $137,089 The American didn’t show much activity in the first half of the night and was clearly tired of the casual playing of “Amygdaluss” and decided to take it from KJ in response 26NT to add chips from the baton, but his opponent had AT and won the deal. The American didn’t show much action in the first half of the evening.

The “artrollin” (sitting Austrian) The value was $187,440. Another European player entered the final hand with the biggest stack, but after waiting for a decent hand, he wiped out half his stack with a Q-flush draw on the turn against top pair. Played 20 Minutes later, he was left with 2.7 billion and lost to 99-QQQ. The next hand he got 32 points and cashed out the rest of his chips in addition to the $18,000 bonus.

” JohnnyUtah (USA) has $267,790. The last American player at the table lost with pocket kings to the king of hearts from Amygdaluss, who was the first player to put an ace on the table. The player donated all his chips to “Amygdaluss” and left the table.

“procurator” (Belarus) – $307,300. The Belarusian was able to “live” into the top three, although he started from the eighth pile. After hitting 44-AQ against a Lithuanian player, he lost and was eliminated.

The one-on-one match began, and the Austrian representative led with 120 BB , while the Lithuanian “dartazz” has 45 BB.

At the beginning, the Baltic players were able to effectively withstand the pressure of “Chipak” and even temporarily narrowed the chip gap; however, after the second break, many big dealers did not He lost at showdown, leaving only 11 big blinds.

When the dealer first puts a king on the table, and then an ace and a ten on the river, it looks like the heads-up match can be reversed. Double darts between KT and A9. This happens when the river cards are an Ace and a 10. However, the game was abandoned after just a few minutes.

After flopping a pair, “Amygdaluss'” opponent couldn’t get out of trouble. There was no way for “Amygdaluss”‘s opponents to escape the hand until “Amygdaluss” hit two overpairs on the river with KQ.

Dartazz earned $557,234 in the second round.

Thinking About Rush Poker Strategies

Thinking About Rush Poker Strategies

Rush Poker* is an innovative poker variant of Full Tilt Poker that allows players to see four times as many cards as in a regular game.

There is no huge learning curve for poker* in Rush, it plays more like a regular game of poker, only faster. However, Rush Poker* has some idiosyncrasies which mean that the style of play is slightly different.

In a normal game of poker, your personal game speed has little effect on the number of hands you play in an hour. In Rush Poker* this is far from the case. A very fast player may see twice as many cards per hour than the average player.

Rush Poker* has an innovative feature that allows players to fold cards out of order: the quick fold button. For example, if you have 2-3 on the button, you have an opportunity to fold before the action happens. Once you fold, you are immediately moved to a new table and dealt a new hand. Players will not know that you have chosen to fold a two-three of another suit out of sequence, as they will not see you fold until the action occurs.

Most of the unique strategies involved in Rush Poker* are based on the Quick Fold feature. Although players cannot see your decision to fold cards out of sequence, the speed of your action gives them a hunch that you have done so. Exiting a hand very quickly is a reliable indicator of out-of-order folding. Casual players and seasoned pros alike drop boundaries: Casual players see more playable hands per hour, while seasoned pros increase their win rate per hour.

The pros are ready to get everyone’s win-per-hand ratio up to adding a small pass to see more hands per hour. In my opinion, out-of-bounds withdrawals will only result in a small increase in the odds of winning each hand. Some pros play many hands of Rush Poker* every day and are quite familiar with the player pool. These pros probably know who is often playing cards out of sequence, recognize that these players may take some action, and pay little attention to the actions of other players.

You should only fold if you fold in the series. Be sure your hand will be profitable. Let’s say you have 5-6 different suits in the small blind. The first instinct is sometimes to move quickly to the next hand. However, you may find yourself in a situation where almost everyone at the table just calls. In this case, you should call and try to connect your hand.

If you play at these tables, you will notice that most players gradually fold. To me, this shows that some strategies that are bad or bad in normal games can be good in Rush Poker*. For example, in Rush Poker, level-based strategies gain value. Sometimes you and the other players at the table just check, but the big blind must fold out of order! A good strategy in Rush Poker* is to simply check from early position, with a mix of super premium hands and speculative hands that usually fold.

In Rush Poker*, as in any other form, the following rules apply. In poker, your best strategy is to go against the tide of the table. Play fast when everyone else is playing tight, and play tight when everyone else is playing fast. Rush Poker* seems to allow players to only play super hands without being easily perceived as super tight by other players. If you feel like the players on your team are doing it, you should go against the flow. Simply steal the blinds for high equity. Against a group of super tight Rush Poker* players, you should develop a strategy that includes raising as many different hands as possible, especially if you are in late position. This way you will steal a lot of blinds. The caveat to this strategy is that if you are in hide, you should only proceed with your best hands. If you are about to be called, you should only act if the flop is played particularly hard.
