Well it seems that the majority rule and nothing is wrong with ghosting, fair enough but lets see what you say when you lose a major pot against someone and then it comes out that some high stakes pro basically told them what to do.

to Mogul4, bax and ivey aint regulars in the $5 tourneys but any player above the recreational standard will know the names and relise if they are at the table then they should pay more attention to them which distracts the attention from a unknown who could be ghosted by a big player, can you see the issue here? brian townsend even played on a different account so that people who knew his game didn't know he was playing.

And to everyone else that doesn't see a problem with the op then gg, i officially conceed, this forum has beaten me and im out, no big loss for a forum that has less than 3% of its membership posting regular. ha ha.

And finally claudioxcore, i am gonna send stars a email directing them to this thread, what they do with that information is basically up to them.

The integrity of the game is only as good as the integrity of the players.

Btw, you sure do seem like you know the ins and outs of this online poker thing, coming from someone who's played roughly 100 tournaments over 3 years.

Out of all the things to throw a fit about your choosing something that stars allows. Even more you mounted your high horse on an assumption of what claudio wanted which wasnt even the case. I don't get it.

Busted the first round, made a questionable call. Idk, it was close. One of those spots where he either caught the 5 outter or I was still ahead.

Gonna try to qualify again this month got 18th on the leaderboard last week.

One of those times where i missed a thread while reading the forum and I just gotta say wow.

Since I haven't commented on anything in a bit, this thread looks like a fun one to jump into.

I'll just say in my opinion that the OP definitely sounded like you were looking for real time advice, not strategy discussions after you'd acted. Whether or not this was your intent, I don't really care.

Ghosting, meh. I don't like the idea of people soliciting real time advice while playing poker but I know it happens and it doesn't really bother me.

Oh, and Claudiox I think you may be misusing the word ignorant.

ig·no·rant
adj.

1. Lacking education or knowledge.
2. Showing or arising from a lack of education or knowledge: an ignorant mistake.
3. Unaware or uninformed

Claudioxcore you know nothing about me or about how educated I am, the knowledge I have on this subject is from the information you provided in your original post which was asking for hand advice in real time, not every hand but definately some of them i.e ghosting.

I did not make you post the original message or word it the way you did, I just responded with my opinion.

You didn't respond with an opinion, you made a blind assumption that I was asking for people to make decisions for me, when clearly you misinterpreted the OP and then proceeded to call me a liar, and bash me, having no acknowledgment of my intentions.

Sounds kinda ignorant to me.

Now, if you would have said "claudioxcore , it sounds like you're trying to have people make decisions for you in key hands... is this true" and I said "yes, those are my intentions", then your argument would be valid. None the less, you didn't ask me and questions, and you didn't know my intentions.

It was your OP that mentioned a ghost, granted not a "full on ghost" but a ghost none the less.

Obviously after I reacted to it you would back track and say that I misunderstood what you wanted, but imo it seemed fairly clear as you listed your AIM and wanted people to list theirs.

I have the right to reply as you do and it is the only reason im still posting in this thread but im done with this forum and people like you, you shouldn't really be bothered by what a troll like me thinks anyway.

And you have made the Blind Assumption that im a troll and know nothing about poker because ive played less than 100 tournaments from the stats you have been able to gain, you havent factored in that I play on many euro sites of which you can't get that data.

I wish you luck and hopefully we will avoid each other on the tables but if I do happen to see you in a game im playing then I have the note on you saying "may not be him making the decisions".

Do you oppose programs like PokerTracker and HoldemManager too? I have a bigger problem with those being utilized than some person sweating another, especially when used with datamining. You can get a sense of how the person is going to play without ever seeing a single hand played by the person and already have an advantage over the person without his knowing it.

How about sharkscope, tableratings, onlinepokerrankings, etc.?

FWIW I use them all because it is allowed and I do feel it gains me advantage over the opposition.

Wes, yes I actually do oppose those programs like PokerTracker but at the end of the day the sites themselves allow the use of such programs so who am I to argue. I dont use any such programs but on occasions I have used sharkscope to look up opponents and see if they are good or bad. Maybe ghosting isn't against the sites rules either but I have a problem with it, lets face it if your in a big pot for alot of money or your tournament life would you prefer to be playing against one person or two/three different people.

Zy, it was meant to be a sarcastic note. Guess the sarcasm got lost in the translation from english to american.

I find it kind of funny that you complain about this place being cliquey and how long time members don't respect new members and so on.... you, having registered here in 10/07, while claudioxcore registered here last month (that would say "this month," had I made this post a couple of days ago).

Yet it is you who have been bashing him over and over in this thread and it is you who is now spouting off about how you don't need this forum or the people in it and so on and so forth.

Don't let the door hit you in the ass, IMO.

TP, you have basically proved my point, yes I did say this forum is cliquey but if you actually re-read what I wrote you will notice I said unless they were related to or friends/associates of existing members. Claudio is clearly a friend of Fildy and Fildy vouched for him which gave Claudio instant approval from the clique.

Its off the point and far more trivial than the subject of ghosting IMO.

Anyway there is nothing more for me to add on either subject as its like beating my head against a door to get most of you to see it from my point of view.

I wish no-one on this forum any malice and with regret this is my last post, plenty more fish in the sea or in this case plenty more forums on the internet.

If it ever gets to the point where I spend even one second worrying about cliques on an internet message board, someone please take a gun to my head and end it for me. Thank you.
