Re: Respect the L/RR with no read?

(disclaimer! - I did not sort by position of the LRRer and these only include hands that were shown. The cards shown issue is important in my opinion, but I think it makes these stats stronger;...

Third street is a little debateable. WIth a low ante like this I would prob muck it, but I may be persuaded otherwise. I think fifth is a fold. You are against probably a made low and...

Re: A questionable slowplay, but what about the river?

[ QUOTE ]
Nothing wrong with a calling the flop, if you raise the hand might end quickly (which you probably doesn't want). It's different with two suits, but here I'd think you're at least 90% fav...

The hand continues

So, I just called going for the overcall, but alas, the poster raised and BB called. Now what? I find it very difficult to fold here, but can we ever realistically be ahead? There is only one ace...

Re: A questionable slowplay, but what about the river?

So here are some thoughts on the river. There is one ace and one king unaccounted for. If we raise, only the ace will call while the king will raise. So we risk 2 to win 1 (maybe). On the other...

Re: Party 1/2 vs 2/4

Depends on time of day. The bad players are just as bad, but there are more and more good players as you move up. 2/4 is the first level where people who make a living doing this start to show up...

simple situation, yet I am unsure.

Crypto 2/4 5 handed. I am working on my SH game, but have been running quite bad lately, so I am questioning things.

Villain here is somewhat loose aggressive pre-flop (about 36/16). I have seen...

I had Deranged's recent post (link (http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/showthreaded.php?Cat=0&Number=4165414&an=0&page=1#Post4165414)) on my mind when this hand came up. The villain here is...

Re: SSHE Pot Odds question

Since on the flop, there is one fewer known card, the odds are slightly lower to hit for a given number of outs. This difference is safely ignored and using the table is fine. The other danger on...

Wait or go (and why)?

Third orbit at the table. BB is 33/10, so far. No idea of his 3-bet standards. I have seen him raise the flop with 55 on a 972 board and then take a free card on the turn. SB seems reasonable; he...
