Re: Curtains: KQo UTG 5-handed

Interesting! Switching the equity modeling off turns a clear push into a fold.
I checked it because was pretty surprised by your "opinion" to fold KQo with less than 8 BB in the CO+1. I pushed that...

Re: Curtains: KQo UTG 5-handed

What calling ranges do you give your opponents? I gave the BB loose and everyone else average, and then it is a push with blinds 100/200. Do you really think the bigstack looks you up with A4o?

Re: 22$; three hands for inspection

Hand #1: Raise more preflop. You are giving pocket pairs like 66 too good implied odds. If the flop comes 863r, you get stacked with kings for just 50 chips preflop.
If you think he always would bet...

Re: PS $11, an AK hand

IMO, you played it fine. I don't mind if you raise with AK in the blinds or not. Both options are viable.
The river push is fine. You will be up against a weaker ace or two pair far more often than...

Re: Stars $60 muck AKs preflop?

If wired had more chips than you then I would fold.
Given that the outcome has to be wired > Bandit > you to end OTM, it's an easy push for me.

Re: How many sng\'s have you won in a row..?

3, several times (in nearly 3000 sngs). Can't get to 4; closest I got was 7 tournies (33s) in a row which ended 1311121.
However, I won my first 109, my first 215 and my first 525+30 turbo. Does it...

Re: September goals/results and new goals for October

Played some 55+5s turbos on Stars and started in the 109s with a ROI of 21%. +5804$. Life is good.

In october I will be quite busy, so my ambitious goal is to play 100 109s and at least one set of...

Fold though the numbers say \'Call!\'?

Villain has been fairly tight so far. I don't think he would push something like T9o here. Nevertheless, eastbay's tool advocates to call against any reasonable range of hands (e.g. any pair, any...

Re: Is This Stupid?

Would have played it the same.

1) You are 65% against his random holding. You can't expect a much better chance to double up.

2) Yes, I would have called, too. IMO, you will be shown 77-99 more...

Biggest downswing?

Haven't seen a post about this so far, so I ask:
What was your biggest downswing in terms of buy-ins?
I start the bidding with a 48.

Re: HU with Huge Stack: How to Play?

Isn't this forum jargon ("do you see why?")?

Another possibility to find out if you should shove or not is to calculate...

Re: HU with Huge Stack: How to Play?

In your example with stacks of 7400 and 600 and blinds of 150/300 you should push any hand that is at least 37.5% against any 2.

Re: $6: overpair in a fishy pot

1.) With less than 10 BB I would push with 88, with more than 12 BB limp. With your stack I could even imagine a fold, however, a limp should be fine.

2.) Of course, you call.

3.) I'd push over...

Re: problems with HU

You raised with Q5 and Q8 when your opponent had 4.5 and 7.5 BB. If he has less than 10 BB you should put him all-in in the first place. After his reraise you are absolutely committed to call. Your...

Re: Five quick hands from my last SnG (20+2).

As a low limit sng-player I'm completely clueless when I have to do anything else than push or fold ;-)

However, I don't think it is possible to pull a positive...

Re: A simulation of Variance (Long)

Hi,

I also made an excel-sheet with a simulation over 2000 sitngos and in your case with 12% 1st, 11% 2nd and 12% 3rd (ROI 6.4%) you will encounter dramatic swings. It's not at all unusual to drop...

Re: The kind of calls you need to make at the $215s....

Does this make you feel better?

According to ICM, by folding NickB has 12.35% price equity.
If he calls and loses, it is 4.61%.
If he calls and wins, it is 22.82%.

So, he only needs to win in...
