Re: NL 50+5 hand input appreciated

Blinds are 50/100 and there are 2 limpers of which you are one. So the pot has 150+100+100=350.

He leads out for 300, you have an overpair and missed your set. The pot is 350+300=650. Who knows...

Re: Foxwoods $100 MTT - going broke in level 1 w/ TPTK

He makes an out-of-line UTG+1 raise with a trouble hand and lucks out on the flop. Fine. He celebrates by checking it, to let you catch up. When the 9 comes on the turn he fears KT and any 2 clubs or...

Re: Do You Ever Worry About a Better Two-Card Flush?

I'm slowing way down and playing cautiously-- I'm holding the non-nut flush where the 10, Q K and A of diamonds all have me beat. And multiple callers are still in this pot.

And dont most of them...

Hellmuth Lateness Policy

Re: um, QQ fold preflop?

I'm dying to hear from the elite posters in this forum on this situation. Out of position facing a large raise and 2 to act behind holding QQ, great example to discuss.

Re: An odd example of losing it..

Take responsibility for your connection. The player is doing his job taking every advantage you offer.

You are responsible for all of your results.

Re: How Many Suckouts Do You Make In Your Tourney Wins?

I believe 2 to 4 suckouts per 200 hands or so is what I experience on the way to just about every final table I experience.

Re: What would you with $20K?

Good move.

Some CFP (maybe your office) is going to make a pretty penny advising the best of the 2+2 young guns. The ideal CFP will be a poker player and capable of assuming a mentoring role with...
