Re: Party \"Verifying my account\"

I'd call them back again and demand to speak to a manager - be polite but indignant; if you spoke to them at 4am last night the head goons probably weren't around so the call center gave you a run...

Re: Party \"Verifying my account\"

That's a new one - did you get the standard Paypro phone call after opening up the wife's account? Usually they leave you alone after that.

Re: $55: Have TPTK and facing a reraise on flop

I hate this spot since it's tough to define his hand, so I'd generally check/call the initial flop bet and see how he reacts to the turn, especially now that the third player has folded. Building a...

if he smooth called preflop with QQ or AA, is he really comfortable blindly going all in in first position with 2 kings out there? This seems more like an A-Q of diamonds or pp anywhere...

Re: $55 - Ballsy? Stupid? Stupid Balls?

Well to begin with I shove it in preflop with 12xbb's since I'm OOP without hesitation.

Having minraised, once I see that flop I'm thinking BB special and really don't want to invest more. If I'm...

Re: ($55) QQ - Overpair

Preflop fine, if he's not tagged as an aggro donkey he's got a pretty narrow range here. In the 800 chip tourneys I'll often come over the top OOP so you don't get outplayed by some monkey with ace...

Re: Curtains hand 1: boring pre-flop question

Dunno, in the $22's and $33's I used to bring in suited broadways for a raise in LP but caught a good deal of reraises out of the blinds. Plenty of players at those levels assume a low/mid pair or...

Re: ($22): ATo facing mini-raise from button

Maybe I'm too aggressive in these spots, but unless you have a psycho-aggro image or know this guy to be very tight, I'd shove, and also call a push by him for that matter.

Re: Two pair, first hand of 55

It's annoying being OOP isn't it! Unfortunately I don't think you can deduce anyone's holdings with a 6-way call fest; even at the $55's plenty of clowns will flat-call a set or higher two pair on a...

Re: JJ, opening hand

Flop - No problem with the raise; at a $55 and under you're getting tons of value from dominated hands - frankly I don't see how the dynamic is changed all that much if you had QQ or KK here either,...

$33 - Postflop: OOP w/AJ scare card on turn

Early in tourney, villain quiet so far, no idea what the open limp is - probably either a low-mid pair or some Gus Hansen crap. Flop: I C/R the donkbet, he calls.

A - Who leads out this turn?...

Re: Interpoker Promotions: No rake, No bonus

This is common practice for them; during two other KK promos from many months ago I was undercredited in each, 4 out of 6 and 5 out of 8 respectively - neither resolved, although I didn't push it.

Re: First 55 AJ hand.

I gave a read on villain. Payout is whatever is standard for party sng. Are you really giving up Aj to a possible steal? As played would anyone push the flop? Anyone call his push?

Re: (55) bluff this river?

Tough one; his preflop call is likely either some broadway combo or low-mid pair. Flop action unfortunately doesn't tell me much - it looks like a WA/WB situation, but since he checked the river, I'd...
