Re: Split the Stud Forum?

One of the main reasons I like the forum in its current format is the ability to learn from a lot of experienced players. My first stud post (with an appalling 3rd street play) was castigated by...

Re: Split the Stud Forum?

I just don't think the stud forum is active enough to justify a split. Maybe people should be encouraged to post the limit in the title of the post so people can avoid reading low limit hands if...

Re: $22: All In Call

This is a really easy call, his range is very wide and its a great opportunity to add 80% to your stack.You can't fold AK when you have 8x the BB.

Re: Stud/8 overplayed hand

Thanks, river was a clear mistake after the check raise on 6th. I wondered if 5th was correct given I was raising into a 256 board - if he had one baby in the hole then he would almost certainly...

I was only kidding though. I've heard people being called donkeys (including myself) long before Hellmuth ranted about getting knocked out with AK vs KJ in the main event.

Re: I have a simple Question????

Donkey is a common name for a poor player at sports (particularly football, or soccer as you'd call it!) here in England. I'm guessing it came from this side of the pond originally, maybe...

Is this too aggressive with a lot of potential outs?

Am only interested in first 6 streets with what you think of my play as river was one of the better cards I could have got. No read on seat 5 but seat 8 is a regular who usually has good 3rd street...

Re: flopped straight OOP

I don't like the turn check, he isn't going to believe the 4 helped you if you fire another half at the pot and will probably call with overcards anyway. The risk with checking the turn is that if...

Re: Pissed off (NC)

The only comfort is that these guys are the reason that stud is profitable in the long run. On Saturday night I had 5 low OESD in stud/8 on 4th in the session, and I didn't even end up making a low...

Re: 180SnG, TPTK Facing Bet On Flop

MP2's mini-bet on the flop seems to want some action and says two-pair or set to me.

Re: Am I Playing Too Tight?

Read both Harrington on HoldEms, you need to loosen up your hand requirements as the blinds increase relative to your stack.

The fact that the A is scary to all the hands that we beat means that he's not likely to call us on the flop with a hand that doesn't beat us.

Re: Possible resteal; what to do?

Very easy fold, whether he had typed something or not. If anything I would suspect the stealing remark means he has a monster but your hand is a stealing hand and you have got to fold. I also...

Re: When do you find a fold here?

Yes, was going to make a crying call on the river, always do with pot that size and am sure its been heavily EV+ by doing it.

I guess my real question is about a fold on 5th given he may have...

When do you find a fold here?

On 3rd I'm thinking I can get this heads up against 3 to a low when I'll be a favourite despite a dead queen, is this flawed? Is 4th too aggressive too?

The one time an open fold is correct!

First ever straight low flush I've got in stud/8, and he open folds on 6th!

Re: $11 - Push With 88?

With under 6x the BB and potentially some dead money in the pot this is a really easy push. Its a push even without the dead money BTW!

Re: Stars $10+1 45k, AQo (help needed.)

My advice is that when the flop misses you, you can fold. If he is that aggressive you will get money off him when the flop does hit you. Your raise all in on the 2nd hand is horrible, he almost...

Re: Interesting Stud 8/B Theory Question

[ QUOTE ]
But to answer seriously, if you started with 6A54 then bricked twice, you are looking to catch a 2, 3, 7 or 8. You have 12 outs, but seat 1 has one of your outs. Of 52 cards in the deck,...

Re: Kings not strong in loose Stud/8 games

In low limit online stud/8 it is never worth completing with kings because of the fact that it rarely drives anybody out who was going to call anyway, and makes everyone chase against you. I usually...

Re: Moneymaker playing 30/60 Stud/8 on Stars

Well Money has left now, about $300 up, looks like he does not enjoy playing full tables. 2 full tables of 30/60 going on now, a byproduct of Party getting rid of skins and rakeback?
