Re: Ace High hands...

Hi Krishan,

What limits? I play lower limits on party and my experience is that many, many players will call the flop but fold the turn. So if it's heads up on the flop and on the turn I fire the...

While I certainly do NOT argue with anyone advocating a push here, there is another play that could be better --

Calling, and then pushing the flop is not a bad option, if overcards to...

Re: Coin flip middle of a tourney, do you take it?

Your tournament situation dictates that you look for a "coin flip" - you're below average stack and M is 10ish. But if I'm going to flip I either want the heavy end of the coin, some fold...

Re: QQ OOP vs loose-ish table (attn: -Skeme-)

Betting out I think was the best action, though I would likely be paying off on the turn. Not to be results oriented, but I would have lost a lot more had I played more aggressively. I...

After MP2 calls the flop I figure I'm ahead and he'll likely fold to a turn bet. So I got cute and wanted to induce a bluff on the river. Then when I improve to two pair and he...

Correct to peel one off looking for 2-outer?

9-handed B & M $3/$6. Typical loose table, 6 to a flop is standard, players cold-call pre-flop raises with the same hands they limp with. They go way too far with only small pieces of the flop -- The...

Re: how do you play these hands?

Hand 1: I would wait for the turn to raise. Protect your hand.
Hand 2: Why check the turn? You've no reason to believe that your hand is no longer good. Bet the turn. If opponents are on draws, they...

Re: AQ in HUGE pot - any way to win this pot?

i don't assume two pair straight or trips based on one bet. but the flop is connected and the pot is very multiway. that dramatically increases the risk to be up against a good hand.

Re: 92.7% sure that my hand is best, but is a call more profitable?

Re: When to let off with AK?

How does everyone feel about the cap? Given that MP1 called, I'm not sure CO's 3bet is just a "my hand is too good to fold" type of raise. If this was suited I would re-raise, here I prefer to just...
