Softplay is basically when somebody chooses to take a less aggressive line because they are involved in a hand with somebody they like or have swapped persentages with. It might be checking instead of betting, or calling instead of rearising, with a strong hand because the other person in the hand is your friend.

I have previously explained that when partners unscrupulously and illegally play best hand against unsuspecting opponents, it’s the superior and aggressive player who gets hurt the most, not the tighter player with weaker poker skills. Now, I’m suggesting that the same is true, to some degree, for friends or props who “harmlessly” soft-play each other.

Today I wanted to explain a term we use all the time in poker which a new player might struggle with, and that is ‘regular’. Even brand new players know what it means to be a fish or a shark (and they could probably hazard a guess at what a donkey is too) but regular is a term we often use to describe a poker player that is not as clear, in fact it varies depending on how it is used.

This is also not good news for the prospects of online poker in the US and at the very least using a VPN is bad optics for the game. Black market activity hurts the image of the game every time something like this happens, which is particularly bad when it's in a country where the game is fighting to exist in the first place. Then if you want to be purely results based about it, while he won the tournament by playing well, he still technically denied money from the prize pool to everyone ...

When a professional poker player is selling shares of themselves in a poker tournament they can add a premium on top of it. If they believe they are a good investment, they can add, for example, a 30% premium. So if they wanted to sell 10% of themselves in a $10,000 event, they could charge $1,300 for it. The backer would only have $1,000 of the equity and the player would essentially pocket the $300. This premium can either be paid up front, or deducted after a win.
