General discussion of poker industry topics / 2024 Summit
« Last post by Dave Miller on August 31, 2023, 03:02:10 PM »
I know it’s a bit early, and I’m not sure if this is the place to post this, but…

I’m betting there’s going to be a Summit in 2024, but has any discussion of the dates happened yet?

I’ve never gone, but I always wanted to. One of the things holding me back was the relatively late notice about when it will be, and the airfare involved. Where is irrelevant, assuming it’s going to be somewhere on the strip…

if I'm following you correctly...when the BB goes bust and on the next hand rebuys he would simply post the small.

I believe you are refering to the BB busts, misses the next hand and then rebuys. I believe he must wait 2 hands for the button to pass and then post a dead SB... meaning he would have to put in the "full" amount of the bet he is facing. His SB is part of the pot, but not recognized as part of his bet.

I hope this helps.

If you sent me an email...I never recieved it.  Here is my email address:
Hi Nick,

Yes well I can’t view it and no problem, I sent my email and private messages you, do you have it?


Also to mention, what happens if say the BB goes bust and then buys back in, if buy the button is not allowed then they wait for the button to pass. Once the button passes once and they are in any position other than the BB, SB and button do they only post the SB to be dealt in and only make up another SB when the action is on them to call the BB?
I guess I'm having trouble sending this to you, sorry. If you give me your email address, I will send it.
Hi Dave,

That makes sense, thank you 😊
I think you’re confusing the last straddle with the first min raise.

You’re right. Once it gets straddled up to 40, a min raise is to 80. Mind you that’s also the amount of the next straddle, if there were one. But there wasn’t. It’s a raise of 40 so a min reraise is another 40, for a total of 120.

Hope that clears it up.
Hi Dave,

Thanks for your reply,

I get the restraddle is always double I’m just at a loss as to why the minimum raise after the last straddle is always double the penultimate straddle rather than the previous straddle. For example, if the straddle is 10 and the next person restraddles for 20 and the next person then restraddles for 40 and no more straddles happen, where I come from is the minimum raise would be double the 40 which would be 80 no? I don’t understand why it would be 20 more for 60 if we are treating the straddles as live and essentially just another big blind rather than a blind raise where the 60 would make sense.

I hope that makes sense?!
Maybe I worded it badly.

Except for the rare ‘rounded’ straddle like my 1/2 to 5 example, straddles are always double.
Re-straddle? Double again.
Re-straddle again? Double again, AGAIN.

That’s how that 5/10 game got to 320. 10, 20, 40, 80, 160, 320!

Whatever the last straddle is, a minimum raise is another double. A min re-raise is the amount of the call plus the amount of the raise - like normal. It just so happens that if it’s a min raise followed by a min re-raise, it’s triple the last straddle. But that rarely happens.
