View Full Version : Makin a play with the short stack

07-19-2005, 05:27 PM
No particular read on the limper other than he had limped a couple of times in the last orbit. I had just put 150 of my 735 in the BB and was the short stack. Seeing just the limp in front of me I decided to see if I could steal.

Total number of players : 5
Seat 5: bond85111 (3670)
Seat 6: RunninBear (1820)
Seat 7: danthemanril (2220)
Seat 8: Hero (735)
Seat 9: mbmachine (1555)

danthemanril posts small blind (75)
Oculto posts big blind (150)

** Dealing down cards **
Dealt to Oculto [ 3h, Td ]

mbmachine folds.
bond85111 calls (150)
RunninBear folds.
danthemanril folds.
Oculto raises (585) to 735
Oculto is all-In.

Does anyone not like this?

I think this is fine, though I often check and stab the flop (do that too much).

Perfect place for a stop-n-go.

Hmmm...hadn't considered that play, but I do like that. I'm not entirely clear on the whole stop-n-go thing. Would that be a proper stop-n-go? (Or is that only when you call a raise and then push on the flop where here I'm only checking first?)
