Re: AA scary board, line check.

I like the line you took in this hand. This is a pretty classic way ahead/way behind situation where you're trying to induce bluffs from hands that you have drawing slim and minimize your losses...

Re: 88 in EP. (Stars $20 Deepstack) Oh, and i\'m a calling station.

I'm very sleep deprived, but I'm having a really hard time understanding how your line does anything but donk off your whole stack the vast majority of the time. It's multiway, there are no real...

Re: player or plumber ???

Fold pre-flop. You're not closing the action so you can't even guarantee you'll get to see the flop. Even when you do see the flop A9s is very hard to play out of position with your stack size. You...

Re: Blind v Blind near the Bubble

Blind vs. Blind is completely about what range villain will call/push into you with and how your hand fairs against that range. So playing against an unknown is difficult.

Villain has a random...

Re: Simple TT Hand

Open pushing preflop with 19xbb and TT is pretty bad here. The only hand you're significantly behind that you maybe fold out is JJ. There's no reason to be so scared of seeing a flop with a 19xbb...

Re: AJs UTG, I made this mess....

Preflop: Limp preflop if your table is fairly passive. If it's agro just fold em. AJs just isn't worth a raise from ep.


Flop: With the way you played it, I'd just make a standard continuation...

Re: AKs preflop

This is a very easy push. You just aren't up against AA enough to fold it preflop.

Re: Who folds this river? (possibly inane content, but I do have a pol

That's hellaweaktight thinking. Your goal in this hand is to extract as much value with your set as you can. You don't do that by shutting everyone out by pushing the turn and you certainly don't do...

Re: When not to make a continuation bet

I'm make a larger continuation bet say 250-350 and then call the push because you're probably 45:55 vs the range of hands that get pushed into you.

Re: Poker IQ Test Draught (Long)

What amazes me is how many good players don't have a good understanding of odds. You'll see pros like Miami John ask if QTs vs. A5o is a a 2:1 dog or someone ask Jenifer Harmon the odds and she'll...

Re: Preflop with AK at final table in PS 20 table SNG

This is a clear push. You've got a fantastic starting hand, and there are two desperate short stacks pushing and dead money from the blinds and a caller. Sorry it didn't work out.

Re: A2s in SB in supersatellite

You have to push. Villain's calling range should be very very tight here and with an Ace in your hand it makes it pretty unlikley that he has a hand that will call. Your lead over the other stacks is...

Re: BAD Board, BAD Position, GREAT Hand...HELP!!!

I like pushing here. I'm not pushing to protect my hand. I'm pushing for value because these guys cannot fold a huge range of hands that you have crushed with 2 cards to come. I don't like letting...

Re: Late near money in the 30+RA on party

You're playing scared because you really want to just make the money. You have a premium starting hand and 11 bb stack and you're looking at a limp from the co and a button raise. This is a clear...

Re: Goot play with big stack or donkey push??

Villain is pot committed after check-raising you on the turn. You've got very little folding equity on the turn when you push and with two overs and a gutshot straight you're certainly behind. I...

Re: AQs and push

Your stack is just too deep for pushing there. You get looked up by mid pairs lot because it just looks so fishy.

If you're afraid of getting lots of callers or getting reraised and having to...

Re: AA hand

I have a really hard time believing that you aren't drawing really thin to a set, flopped straight, or two pair here. I have to let it go unless my image is absolutely nuts here or villain is...

Re: 4:1 to call preflop. What is your calling range?

With deep stacks my range is huge. I'm looking to play trash hands that have straight and flush potential like 74 suited, broadway hands hoping to make the straight, suited kings/aces for flush...

Re: Oh my!! Should I risk my TOURNAMENT LIFE!! so early?!?!?!

Pushing is ev neutral if you knew both come along because you're about 40% vs. two over pairs and 25% against say an over pair and overcards+flush draw and given the pot odds are going to be like...

Re: Pocket pair on a monotone flop

Hand 1 is a pretty clear preflop push because of the two limpers and your stack size. Having not pushed preflop, I now push that flop.

Hand 2 I would check the flop with the intentions of...

I think you're missing his point NoahSD. The whole reason why you would play a junk hand like Q9 is for the implied odds that if you flop big you might stack some guy that is over playing his hand. ...

Re: Pocket pair on a monotone flop

You can't pose vague questions like this and expect to get good answers. Poker is all about the details. You need to post the hand histories to get good advice.

Re: To call or not to call . . .

I'd have got it all-in on the flop. Not to protect the hand mind you, but because these guys will call getting 2:1 or better depending on the number of callers with their draws/two pair/etc. So I'm...

Re: Advice needed: tell me how reckless this play was

I'd just check behind and take the free card.

Villain has an Ace here a lot of the time and is going to call your push which looks like a semi-bluff. When you check you also induce bluffs from...
