Taken from Crown's website:

This year the Crown Poker Room will be hosting 14 official tournaments ranging from the $120 PokerPro Shootout through to the $10,200 High Stakes Holdem event, plus daily satellites from $50. From Hold’em to HORSE, Omaha to Pineapple, every Poker discipline is represented on the comprehensive schedule of events.
Was just curious, is there a HORSE event? I looked through the schedule but couldn't find it. And by schedule, I mean the schedule that the article above refers to, so I assume it is the correct schedule.

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Just wanted to congratulate Jared on shipping the 6-Max event at JHDSS. He beat Toothpick Tony heads up, I think their was a deal or something, but still, good job man!

Penns Creek 5c/10c CAP PLO. Incredible action featuring some of Australia's greatest ever luckboxes. A MUST watch if you're on right now!

This is a hand I was playing a earlier, which I saved because I thought it was actually quite interesting. I think that a case can be made to raise, call, and fold in this spot, but I'm interested to hear what others think.

The Mask : ???

I know a case can be made to do anything here, I have no information on my opponent, and if I make my straight I'm not necessarily getting paid, am I? Interested to hear thoughts. Oh, and if you say 'fold preflop, imo', then you didn't read the hand history, okey doke?

I will post results later.
