Re: Setting up a poker station

If the computer I have has onboard video, would a dual output card bring that up to three monitors or would I have to disable the onboard entirely thus dropping me to two? Also, how will processor...

Setting up a poker station

I have been playing online for a couple of years with a laptop that could just barely handle PP, PT and GT+. I am now up to 6 tabling and the PT db has gotten bigger and the laptop can't handle it. ...

Re: Leak #3 Raising from the blinds

Everyone seems to like raising the A9s OOP. Is this really a profitable raise? I guess it depends a bit on whether these limpers would be limping with better Aces and/or worse aces. Now if I were...

Re: You like or no?

At the middle levels (above 2/4) flop play is always considered suspect. A c/r flop would beg the question "If he had a Q, why wouldn't he wait to c/r the turn". AA,KK,JJ,TT (maybe a frisky AK)...

Re: KK - slow me down

I would take the same line. I would consider check/calling the river to avoid being raised but I am a weak/tight ass on the river. Some reads on the players would help a lot though.

Re: The Winning Player - Let\'s Define Him

The winning player wins. Done. That is all. If I am an absolute fish, play once, win and never play poker again, I am a "winning player". I am not a "good player". Thing is, in reality the fish...

Re: Pots odds theory

There is one area where the initial poster is correct. Not with flush draws but with straight and overcard draws. SSHE makes the point that overcards should often not be treated as full outs, but...

Re: Average winning hand

It doesn't matter how the hand is made but I think you will easily remember a hand like AK on a A2774 as a TPTK hand and forget that you had two pair. So it feels like you win a lot of hands with...

Re: Folding preflop to a raise when you know your dominated

The real key to this type of situation is how are you going to play this when you hit something. So you flop a ten, do you intend on calling him all the way down because you may have sucked out his...

Re: Folding the nuts?

This is a situation where saying that "the chance he has a flush draw is 8%" is not accurate. Not because of the math but because quite simply the betting line made it a STRONG possibility. If it...

Re: Folding equity

If you put a raise or bet in expecting that not all of your opponents will fold but that some of them will (ex. You are in the SB having flopped top pair and you know the button is going to bet, a...

Re: Folding equity

Another simple example of fold equity is what is a bet worth purely based on the chance someone will fold. Let us say I am playing $1/$2 limit and on the river I have a busted draw. The pot has $20...

Re: TT hand played badly?

Being afraid of this river is just seeing ghosts. Yes he MIGHT have QT. But it certainly is not the only hand he could have. You think he really just decided he was going to call down with top two?...

Re: Calling a raise with K2o

Of course you call. K2s is a monster. Wait what? It was offsuit? Never mind.

Re: How am I to see this coming? Help!

Unless you have seen this dude C/R bluff before, let this go on the turn raise. Even if you have seen this guy C/R bluff before, let it go. Saving these extra bets is a major contributing...

Re: 88 on button bad lay down

Unless you have reason to think that the raiser would never raise a draw I would 3-bet. This is a bit read-dependent but I would put the initial bettor on the 4 rather than the 5 and the raiser on a...

Re: Poker tracker question

Poker Tracker is fantastic. It is everywhere you want to be.

What many players here do is have it running and importing hands constantly. Used in conjunction with GameTime+ on PP and you can...

Re: SSHE

One small error there. You said he bets the pot and you are getting 3-1 pot odds. No, you only count what is in the pot and his bet, NOT YOUR CALL. If there are $10 in and he bets $10, you need to...

Re: need some hlep with this situation...

The answer to your question has alot to do with the players. With a relatively large preflop raise (5 times the BB) and there are three callers, I have to assume this is a relatively loose game. The...

Re: Bet the Raise

This is an interesting twist. What about the case where there is merely a bet and a call. On the next round a player can only bet the standard amount?

This seems to have the action of PL but...

Re: 50/50 situations in tournaments. Advice?

When I say I would prefer to be the bettor I mean I would much rather be betting all-in then calling all-in in this spot. Of course I agree with the initial raise. I don't even disagree with the...

Re: 50/50 situations in tournaments. Advice?

My point isn't that winning the tourney would give you 2-1 on your investment. Just winning the 5 coin flips (not the coin example, the tourney one) does not make you win the tourney. If you win...

Position play with drawing hands

One other point. With hands that can hit a big draw position is very important. With 4-4, after the flop you have either hit or missed. Position does not matter as much. If you hit, you can bet out,...

Re: 50/50 situations in tournaments. Advice?

The original oversized raise was the problem. You put a third of your chips in and built a pot that you were then commited to. You need to win coinflips in a tournament but they are to be avoided for...

Re: Fold Equity

Fold Equity refers to what value does a bet have because it may win the pot there. A good example is a small pocket pair pre-flop. Let us say I am playing NL hold'em and the blinds are $1-$2. I and...
