I'm surprised so many people have your back on this forum. Sometimes you really come off like a prickish egomaniac.

Re: A Heads-Up Hand - Standard?

Cant say I like it, Jeff. I just see myriad problems that could arise by you raising. You're just begging to get three-bet here by a aggressive player with a high heart or a pair. He simply might...

I"m curious about why you raised sixth and then bet the river unimproved as well?

Given how the hand played, it looks like he was rolled up. You caught your best card, and then he re-drew on you.

With a dead Nine and a puny ante, did you give any thought to folding third on the first pass? I'd raise myself, but I've always been an optimist.

20/40 Bad call on third and getting what I deserved.

Thought I'd share a hand that should have hit the muck on third when I was raised, but then a loose call on my end led to disaster. Hell, I dont know though. You tell me how bad it is. Motivation for...

Carlos,

I really appreciate your thoughts in this post due to the fact that you have to be the expert shorthanded stud player on 2+2 if there is one. I guess its a good thing I agree with what you...

Re: Stud Winrate, possible move up?

As an interesting sidenote:

Just so you know the difference in difficulty between the 5-10 and the 10-20/20-40's, there is no player at the latter levels that makes 2BB/100 or more. Of course...

Is it possible that the games are softer now than when you were back at that level, or is 7500 hands just not a large enough sample?

Re: Blumpkin vs. Emery

Fold fourth. Four flushes really suck when they're live like yours is. It also isnt good that Mike bet into you again. I put him on quads. Definitely fold fifth. You have nothing but that lousy four...

Re: 20/40: Semi-bluffing and then calling down

I probably play it the same. There are two things I will point out and that I might try if I know the player fairly well. The first being that against some players you can raise sixth here and be...

Re: $2/$4 hand

Try to check-raise the one seat on fourth. If she dosent bet maybe the 8 will, then raise as well. Since this is 2-4 I'm assuming most arent dropping here on fourth, despite the scare card you...
