Re: medium strength hand against maniac

Flop: Fine.

Turn: Less than half the pot? Why? This bet gives him odds to draw, and invites him to move you off your hand. Stack sizes...

Re: TPTK w/ nut draw

I like your line.

You let him hang himself if he's behind, but he's probably not.

You have a strong draw, and odds (+implied) to continue on flop/turn.

Hard to fold on the river with those...

Re: A hand and some commentary

Call river.

Rest of the hand looks good.

Villian could be value betting any A or Q here, or be on a bluff.

Re: top two vs overbet 200 6max

Generally, weak-lead/3-bet on the turn is a monster hand.

You're behind to any set and now T9.

Fold.

Rest of the hand looks alright, although I would usually bet a little more on the flop...

Hooray for bloating the pot out of postion with a weak hand!

Re: Aces flop nut flush draw

You're getting about 1.8:1 on your call, here. ($430:$235)

vs. K/images/graemlins/club.gifQ/images/graemlins/club.gif 2.15:1 (68/32)
vs. Two Pair: 1:1 (50/50)...

Would this also be an even easier fold if he pushed instead of C/R all in?

No, it'd be a harder fold.

Read dependant, though.

Re: 3/5 at Hollywood Park

Check the flop.

WA/WB.

As played, you can probably fold, barring a read.

Re: What to do with Pocket Queens from the BB???

All in is pretty bad here. You let him off with anything you beat, and he instacalls with AA/KK. Call and move in on any flop if you think you're good.

Against most players, though, this is an...

Re: Tough spot with two pair

Fold PF.

Flop check is good.

Turn raise is good. Easy fold to re-raise.
