You make up a scenario to represent nofold holdem, but then you say sometimes they fold and sometimes they don't jam...
 Forum: Home Poker 12-20-2005, 06:02 PM Replies: 21 Views: 39 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: Odd hold\'em structure I must be an idiot /images/graemlins/confused.gif -- I just don't see the difference. In both games, if people want to play, they put in \$2 preflop/flop and \$4 turn/river. In one game, they do...
 Forum: Home Poker 12-20-2005, 04:17 PM Replies: 21 Views: 39 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: Odd hold\'em structure Explain to me how's it's different, Larry. If you get involved on one street, it costs you 4 bets. Period. There's no limping and hoping it doesn't get raised this time, because it does get...
 Forum: Poker Theory 12-20-2005, 12:28 PM Replies: 25 Views: 14 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: Post a poker variation you\'ve made up I don't claim credit for any of these, but they're fun... Double Flop Hold'em Just like hold'em, but you deal two boards simultaneously. You split the pot between the winners for each board. ...
 Forum: Home Poker 12-20-2005, 12:03 PM Replies: 21 Views: 39 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: Odd hold\'em structure Hi Larry, Okay, I lied a little bit. It's actually a .50/1.00 game with standard betting rules (one bet and 3 raises), but everyone's a maniac so it's capped on every street...typically one...

 Forum: Probability 12-16-2005, 03:10 PM Replies: 2 Views: 14 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: how do you figure this out? In general, you figure out the number of flops that fit the criteria you define, and divide it by the number of total possible flops. The easy way to do it is by using combinations. Example. If...
 Forum: Micro-Limits 12-16-2005, 02:23 PM Replies: 15 Views: 16 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: Middle pair, standard fold? I think folding is the best play. You've got a weak made hand (middle pair no kicker) that's easily outdrawn if ahead (especially with the flush draw on board) and with little chance to improve if...
 Forum: Probability 12-16-2005, 01:26 PM Replies: 8 Views: 9 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: A9- How often am I Behind? That wasn't the OP's question though. Who knows what context he had in mind? Maybe he's trying to decide if he should hold onto A9 in a 3-handed 2-card Guts game. PP
 Forum: Probability 12-16-2005, 12:31 PM Replies: 8 Views: 9 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: A9- How often am I Behind? It's about 9.8% that one opponent will have a pair or AK-AT versus your A9. It's about 18.7% that at least one of two opponents will have your A9 beat. PP
 Forum: Home Poker 12-15-2005, 09:18 PM Replies: 21 Views: 39 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: Odd hold\'em structure Yes, of course. There's a single bettor, and then many callers (many, many callers). Checking is allowed. I don't know if checking around was allowed or not; the situation never came up...
 Forum: Home Poker 12-15-2005, 09:15 PM Replies: 21 Views: 39 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: Odd hold\'em structure Hi crackhead, I respectfully disagree. It's not a very interesting or tactical poker game, but it's certainly more poker-y than 2-card guts or acey-deucy. Although you can't raise, you are...
 Forum: Home Poker 12-15-2005, 09:05 PM Replies: 21 Views: 39 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: Odd hold\'em structure Hi Larry, Sorry I wasn't more clear. Although the blinds are .25/.50, the bet preflop is \$2. Both of the blinds have to complete to \$2 to see the flop. PP
 Forum: Home Poker 12-15-2005, 06:15 PM Replies: 21 Views: 39 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: Odd hold\'em structure Without worrying too much about the "social" aspect (playing like a nit in a home game), there are a few things I'm trying to figure out... 1) Is position important? I don't think it is, if it's...

 Forum: Micro-Limits 12-15-2005, 04:31 PM Replies: 33 Views: 34 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: KK makes set and gets donked... Well, if you knew that MP1 would 3-bet, then it's 14:3 (unless you think hero would fold to a 3-bet after raising), which makes it a call. If you knew that MP1 would 3-bet and hero would cap, it's...

[ QUOTE ] In this particular case, though, with the two diamonds on the board, I'd probably raise to protect my hand here. [/ QUOTE ] A raise won't protect your hand. There are 8 SB in the...
 Forum: Home Poker 12-15-2005, 11:20 AM Replies: 21 Views: 39 Posted By PseudoPserious Odd hold\'em structure Hi, I need some input on how to adjust to this (slightly odd) variation of holdem. The blinds are .25/.50. The small bets are \$2. The big bets are \$4. THERE ARE NO RAISES --- there's only a...

 Forum: Poker Theory 12-14-2005, 09:04 PM Replies: 20 Views: 14 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: Laggiest Game Ever Okay, I'm at home now... The first section talks about a game where 7 players regularly cap it. It recommends playing AA-QQ and AKs. "Whether you want to splash around with as little as two tens...
 Forum: Poker Theory 12-14-2005, 05:18 PM Replies: 20 Views: 14 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: Laggiest Game Ever I had my doubts about a hand like A6s, but after doing a similar calculation as above, it looks like the break-even point is also right around 30 BB. In the OP's game, it looks like most pots were...
 Forum: Poker Theory 12-14-2005, 04:50 PM Replies: 20 Views: 14 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: Laggiest Game Ever I can't quote it verbatim (I'm at work), but it suggests playing AA-QQ and AKs only. JJ-99 and AQs-AJs it says are profitable, but only barely so, and add a ton of variance. It's on pages 213-215. ...
 Forum: Poker Theory 12-14-2005, 12:04 PM Replies: 20 Views: 14 Posted By PseudoPserious Re: Laggiest Game Ever Ooops, you're right -- I messed up the calculation in the earlier pot anyway; I forgot to reduce the expected profit when you missed your draw. Disregard my earlier post. I'll try again, and...

About big pairs not holding up -- you're right, most times they don't, against lots of players. But sometimes they do, and they will more than their fair share. About the little pairs --...
