    Yes, it's nice! I guess it gives more action postflop rather than preflop so you can actually see who is better postflop player.

    Maybe this type will be more useful for full-ring games rather than six-max.

    I wonder if their thought proccess behind this rule was " some idiot is going to show up and go all in every hand with our money hoping to double up, we gotta do something about that" :D

    I think they introduced this rule because of the loose cannon. Its just too easy for this player to go crazy big preflop where equities run closer and there is not as much skill involved, since they are not playing on their own money.

    i saw the first few episodes and i think the rule for PL preflop is just for protecting the game so you actually see more flops and have more action postflop.
