Re: The 3rd Shot at 10/20 is a charm... but not

With your stats I don't think it's possible to lose more than 100-150 BB without noticably terrible cards at the 10/20, **unless** you're either not making player reads or not trusting them. I would...

How many centers in the league? If its one, then the deal is fine.

Re: Live hand: Bottom pair, ugly river

You don't give a preflop read. I think that the turn c/r and the river call go hand-in-hand, you think AK and AQ are a significant part of his range. The only way to c/r the turn and not call the...

How many teams in this league?

Thanks for the input. It's a 10-team league. About 6 or 7 owners know what they're doing. The league isn't for money, meaning there...

Fantasy basketball -- Duncan == Billups?

So there was just a trade in my fantasy league, Tim Duncan for Chauncey Billups. I complained but the commissioner said it was relatively fair because Chauncey is having a monster year. So I...

No, try going to RGP (google groups, rec.gambling.poker, pen name or pseudonym) and doing the same query. You get a bunch of hits, some of which mention that several names are pen names. But...

Re: Someone explain this to me

96o

Let's look at your gutshots, which is one of the better scenarios. Suppose you flop a gutshot. Looks like this is a favorable scenario for 96o because you have odds to call, right? Except...

Never mind above. Brainfart. Probably should call a turn raise getting 7-1 odds.

Re: Pretty common turn spot that I hate

Yeah I usually check/call the turn but this may not be right.

I haven't seen anybody say bet/fold the turn and I think this option is at least worth examining. Flush draws are pretty but they...

Re: dear God when will it end?

Congratulations. You have discovered the fact that panhandlers make more money than they would if they didn't panhandle.

Now the only question is hourly rate.

Re: AQo - Can you fold this river?

I want the extra money in with the BB calling, because he's an unknown and lots of unknowns at Party 5/10 will call with 77 or a suited connector. Kind of similar to what you said in the OP, except...

Re: AQo - Can you fold this river?

(1) I cap, but I don't think it's a huge deal.

(2) I'm not good enough to find a fold either while multitabling, but it is one. I'd say you're good 1 in 25 instead of 1 in 15. If you've made...

I'm pretty sure the correct play is to peel, if you've been sitting at the table with him for awhile and he hasn't stood out.

If I or he just sat down, I raise and take the free card because: (1)...

Re: The Overuse of the WA/WB line Out of Position
