Re: Trying to be tricky against a weak player

Once the BB folds, I'm either calling down or folding, probably folding. There's no need to get into a pissing match with a pocket pair under middle pair.

Re: General strategy question... blinds defense

Certainly don't call 99% of the time. Play half or more of your hands and reraise with a good percentage of those. If you're truly being stolen from, the last thing the stealer wants to see is a...

Re: $55 Push?

True enough, but wait four or five more hands and they have even less to lose and you have even less to win.

Re: Curtains Hand #2 12.30

I'd have bet around 300 into that pot to see what Villain does. Now, I'd drop this. Villain called your preflop raise and probably has a decent ace. The chips you'll be betting from this point on...

Re: $55 Push?

With your stack, those blinds, and two folds in front, I think you have to do this.

Correct Pot Odds vs Survival Right Now

I'm sure that this has been covered here before, but I've run across a situation several times in the last week where I'm not sure how I should proceed.

I flop a flush draw or an open-ended...

Re: Cold calling preflop maniacs

First of all, keep playing your good game against a preflop maniac. You must be a maniac with cards, not bets. Don't "reraise almost all hands," but also don't leave the table; you'll eventually...

Re: Is there a single hand I\'m ahead of here?

You may be behind, but with the pot lying 11.5:1, I don't see a fold here. In fact, I'd raise to get rid of MP2. If you're unimproved on the turn and Button bets again, you have a much harder...

Re: Ducks

I like your play so far. It's quite likely that one or both of your opponents have hit a flush. However, you have 10 outs to a full house. Call.

EV question about KK near end of tournament

I'm one of four left in a single-table tournament. Places 1-3 pay: $25, $15, and $10. I've played this one over and over in my head. I can't imagine playing passively here. Would anyone suggest...

At the risk of keeping a thread going that you want killed, I have to report that this player (starts with Y,...

Re: Who the hell IS this guy?

I've probably played a couple of thousand hands against this guy myself. At first, I thought he was very good. He is, but his strategy, I believe, is to take full advantage of people who play too...

Re: Top set, not to worried about the draw, how\'s this for a line

Toss up on the flop. You get an extra small bet from BB, but probably could have gotten the same from UTG with a raise. I like it, though.

I like the cap on the turn and the bet on the river.

Re: AA, draw heavy board and I\'m new to this limit stuff

I like the flop raise. Since CO folds and you have it heads up, I determine to call down once BB 3-bets. However, that river sucks. Now I have to ask whether he's on an absolute bluff or has a...

Re: Help me on the turn

After my last dumb post, I'll try again. I think miles is right here. Do you think he's bluffing 30% of the time? Then call. Without good notes on his play to this point, I'd fold here, but...

Re: (Stars 1/2) Looking for a check-raise with quads

I have to bet this. No one with a straight draw or non-Ace overcards is going to help you out here.

Re: Help me on the turn

This is an easy call for me. You're probably behind, and if you are, a raise won't win this for you. On the other hand, you have 14 pretty good outs. Call. The harder question for me is what to...

Re: Common Top Pair Situation

I like it. While I know that we're not technically WA/WB because we have a number of outs, I think it's reasonable to check/call here. If we bet and get called on the turn, I don't think we have...

Re: Made straight vs. Flush Flop

I think I'd 3-bet this and try to drive SB out, then call down from there if there's not another heart.

If it checks to us on the turn, I think we're ahead and need to bet.

If SB calls on the...

Re: Flush draw

I like the bet out on the flop, but don't 3-bet against one opponent.

Fold the river. There's no way this is good 20% of the time.

Re: My KQo got capped

I don't like the 3-bet here out of the small blind. However, when the flop comes, you're only behind KK, AA, and AK of villain's likely hands. I think you could bet the flop. Once the flop checks...

Re: KTo hitting many draws

15 outs on the flop?

Let's see. I don't like your 10 nearly as much as you do. I'll give you 4.5 for the flush. For the straight, I'll count the A of hearts as 1/2, but completely discount the...

Re: Walked into the trap with my two pair?

I'll be weak and offer a different suggestion. Villain could easily be playing 55, 66, or 88 (raise pre-flop to drive this stuff away). We now have villain heads-up. Call him down unless you...

Re: playing top pair (or any pair, for that matter)

Justin,

A big part of your thinking in playing top pair is to start with the right cards. If you're playing big cards and flopping somewhere in the 15-25% range, your top pair is often good...
