Re: Got married to my preflop raise, where should I get a divorce?

Let's go back to the preflop raise. If this is full-10 table, isn't there an argument for limping this hand instead?

We'd like to play multiway, so that if our straight or flush draws hit, we...

I don't push here but later on I wish I had. . I wait for at least K high. When it arrives, to my dismay, I'm no longer first to act. Someone else has limped, raised or pushed before me....

Re: ($2000) L1, AK TPTK facing minraise

Nice outcome. Glad to see the best hand preflop held up.

I remember seeing that move with A4, etc. all the time at the play money tables a couple years ago. People did it constantly. Everything...

Re: ($2000) L1, AK TPTK facing minraise

This strikes me as exactly the way a weaker player would handle A8 or A4 that just made two pair.

Villain would limp UTG with such a dubious hand in the first place (especially if suited); call...

Re: Playing mixed games online

Put it in the same category as driving on the highway and eating lunch at the same time. You can probably get away with it every now and then, but it undermines both experiences.

Re: where are the real soft games other then party?

Time of day matters a lot on Stars.

Make sure you play Sunday morning/midday. For some reason, BriannasMom4, AprilsMom36, etc. all sit down at sub-$1 limit tables for hours and call everything to...

Re: Still Shaking about this hand, help needed......

you want to be in Pot/No Limit, small stakes.

Looks like you ran into trip 10s on the river. If so, your fold is correct. At higher stakes, you could worry about whether you bet the flop just...

Re: Calculating flush odds MY WAY.

Fair enough. We'd be gentler, but poker isn't a gentle game.

Stay sharp and you'll do fine. Don't touch the cards if you're feeling lazy.

I'm just a small-stakes player trying to learn from the way people play hands at higher levels, but this would be a pretty automatic preflop fold for me. Bad position and a hand that can't really...

Did you get up for food, bathroom, etc. before this hand was dealt?

Who shuffled, cut the deck, dealt, etc.?

Re: does anyone ever find themselves wondering if a site is rigged?

if you play thousands of hands, some 1:1,000 things will happen.

Re: Interesting (to me) 88 hand

pre-flop -- i'd consider a reraise after button raises. if button is playing a strong Ace or KQ, you'd love to go heads up with some dead money in the pot. Try putting pressure on the two limpers to...

Re: How many players do I need in the pot to be calling from big blind?

Most of the time, folding junk still is the right play. The best preflop odds you can ever be offered at 6-max would be 11:1 -- invest one more small bet to have a shot at a pot of 12 SBs. More...

Re: weak overpair (nano limits)

Re: BB Play Against Steal Raises

Your non-suited hands look pretty reasonable. I might re-raise 88 and fold 33 and 22, but we're quibbling on the edge.

You're playing a lot more suited hands than I would. I'm assuming this is h/u...

Re: Out of Position
