Re: Tunica

If you haven't made reservations yet, you're pretty much screwed, right? I was pricing rooms on the web and the numbers weren't pretty. I hadn't initially planned on going, but now that the event...

Re: Rolled vs paired ace door

I am pretty sure I would just call. I put both of your opponents on flush draws, and unless the guy in the middle is a special sort of player, I doubt he will fold his draw to a 5th st raise.
If...

Re: Any Way Out?

I don't think that stats on the hand are particularly helpful, since you cannot possibly put Tc8c6c on his hand (maybe you could after observing him for a while, but from an outside perspective I...

Re: Funny Hand

I was 3-tabling at the time, and I didn't notice the limper.

Since I'm pretty aggressive anyway, I figured a open-limp would look suspicious. Plus, these guys always think I'm stealing anyway! ...

What's the 50/100 stud like at the Bellagio?

I remember reading somewhere that you should try and check quads somewhere . . . I can't believe I actually got action . . .

Re: Stud vs Hold Em (low content)

Really? I've beaten HE up to 20/40 online for a couple of years now. About a month ago, I just had to take a break from HE, so I've been playing Stud only. I'm just amazed at how much easier hand...

Re: $10/20 stud hand

I consider myself to be a pretty good hand-reader in stud---but I'm not confident enough in my reading to dump this hand on 6th st with this big 'ol pot in the middle.

Re: Any Way Out?

The other two guys have covered this one already, but again:

3rd--This is a very borderline hand. I think many people overvalue these sorts of disconnected razz hands. With a 2 dead aces to...

Re: 20/40 Bad call on third and getting what I deserved.

Glad I'm not the only one tossing out inebriated thoughts!

Re: 20/40 Bad call on third and getting what I deserved.

Unlike the last abomination you posted, I like this one on every street. I don't really understand where you think you could have done something differently. 3rd is super-fine, IMHO.

Re: Questionable 3rd street raise

If you feel like you have a reasonable shot at stealing the antes, this is fine. If you're seeing 4th st 6-handed everytime, I think passing is best.

Re: Follow up to Doyles bid for the wpt

I just finished the same class and am wondering the same thing. We definitely didn't cover insincere offers like this.

Re: Any way to play this hand differently?

Why are we folding on the end here? Sure, you're beat 90% of the time (though something like (Ts 6s)Qs was possible for the enemy), but the pot is big and a call offers you some bluff protection for...

Re: Semi-Interesting 10/20 hand

With the pot this big and a guy coming out of nowhere with a raise on the river, folding a straight to anyone for one more bet is atrocious, IMHO.

Re: 20/40 Getting aggressive

1. This is a small game, and in my experience you don't need to make plays like this to win in this particular game.
2. This "play" just doesn't seem very sound, and I don't understand the...

Re: 20/40 Getting aggressive

4th st is fine, but you're looking at big trouble once he pairs 5th. Maybe it's just me, but when he leads out, it isn't to represent 2 pr, it's because he doesn't want to miss a bet. If he were...

Re: Rolled 8s, RIVER??

Just calling is best. You told him you had his queens-up beat on 6th st and he's still firing. Not weak-tight in my book.

Re: Trouble on fourth?

Failing to reraise on 3rd st is horrendous.
I realize that raising "doesn't accomplish anything but get more money in the pot," and that is the point. Hero is likely to be first to act on 4th st...

Re: WSOP \"I played Perfect\" kid

Played 40/80 with him at the WSOP Circuit event in Louisville 2 months ago. ESPN didn't do him justice---kid is a total tool! Complete limit donk too!

Gotta give him credit though---he is...

Re: home games in the cincinnati area

Is the Longworth's game dead? The 10/20 O/8 game there was sweet! I've been swamped with school and unable to play live there or belterra in a month, so I'm kind of out of the loop!

Re: 20/40 online hand

I think capping preflop out of position with AQ is awful.

If I think I'm ahead on the flop, I think that calling the 3-bet and check-raising the turn is much better than capping the flop. With...

20/40 online hand

I've played exactly zero hands in two orbits since I sat down.
I pick up AhQh UTG and raise. MP guy cold calls, button, a LAGGY player 3-bets. We both call.

Flop is Qs 7h 4c

I check, MP...

Re: WSOP: Bubbling better than a weak cash?

Isn't the seat "constructively" received in the year that you win it? Also, I am just about positive that you only have to pay taxes on the fair market value of the seat if you sell it, not the...
