Mercman,

I know the 5-10 rule... I have been using it until now - I just wonder whether it works out of position as well... It just seems to me that it's real hard to stack...

I stopped reading here, semi-bluffing fish is generally not a good idea.

Re: A set vs. a made straight - when should I draw for the full house?

Re: Small Pocket Pairs in the blinds (theory discussion)

against someone that raises far too much and a PFR>5 BB I fold it. If a player is overly weaktight but has a wide range preflop I also fold it. My theory being that he's often not raising solid...

Re: Interesting Hands

hand one, don't try to push donks off of hands. By the turn you're only about 1 in 3 to win the hand vs a pair and likely don't have any fold equity.

Re: AJo in the blinds

If he's a donk that raises too much preflop but limped here I would've raised PF. If you think you're good on the flop, the turn is effectively a blank. I would just lead the turn for 2/3 though.

very standard hand in NL. Pot size raise the flop (you let him draw cheaply by calling and you can most likely get more value). 1/2-2/3 pot size bet this turn.

thedustbustr,

What bluff are you picking off tptk + re-draw to nut flush? this hand can only get you into trouble. Sans /images/graemlins/diamond.gif redraw, easy fold.

No current reads (I am on my comp at home, my other PT data is at school) but I think I remember this villain as being a bad LAG. I'm just not buying this turn bet. Thoughts?
