re: Poker & Disconnected opponent
As much as I'd like to take the moral high ground, it would be raise raise raise....its a ruthless world out there.
To put into perspective :- With just over 40 people left in the party poker
million (a year or so ago) I picked up KK in the BB. Folded around to the SB...The SB raised, I reraised and he launched all-in. Before I could call the computer crashed (generally about a once nightly occurence at the time, but never quite so untimely as this).
Apparently he had JJ. Such is life.....and something you simply have to accept.
No-one in there right mind is going to feel sorry for your technical difficulties and insist that the hand be re-run or chips returned....so generally I would raise raise raise without any feeling of guilt whatsoever, knowing that maybe it was just a little bit of karma.
