OT: Melbourne tournaments?

I'll be in Melbourne from the 5th-15th January to play some of the Australian Poker Champs tournaments, though I won't be playing the Aussie Millions unless I can satellite in.

Any people from...

Re: $11 - ITM w/OESD

What wuwei said. Your biggest asset in this hand is your position and you destroy that by raising immediately. You could even consider calling another pot or near pot bet on the turn. You don't...

Re: $11 - ITM w/OESD

[ QUOTE ]
The call to his shove, in my opinion, is pretty bad.

[/ QUOTE ]

Eh? Look at the pot odds. Though I agree if he's raising it should be a shove in the first place.

Re: $55 small pair good enough to push?

I wouldn't. But I can understand people who do.

My experience is that people, especially at the 55s, understand coinflip avoidance on the bubble, but not earlier. I prefer to stay quite tight in...

I'd like to know how many players are left and other things before attempting to answer this question, as I believe these are important factors that may affect the villians play.

If i understood you correctly, you would prefer playing back with 1200, because if you get called and lose you lost only 1200 whereas if you resteal the pot the result would be the same.

Re: Theory: Stack Efficiency in SNGs

Put yourself in villain's shoes. Suppose you have something like A9 suited in the blind at 50/100. It folds to the button with 2000 chips who steal raises you. Do you feel more comfortable playing...

Re: [30/3] KK, HU, OOP, bad flop

I'd stall a little, then check the flop. I often check these bad flops where I can't make a decent size bet without getting myself potstuck. There are a few reasons:

- Allowing a free card is not...

Re: (11) pocket nines with rag flop

Slowplaying is a disease.

200 would be a good bet on the turn. It's enough to pot commit him if he has a pair. It's also small enough that it looks like you might be a bit scared. Finally, it's...

Re: (11) two hands that drove me nuts

1. I limp AQ there. If you want to raise that's OK, but it has to be more. 3xBB plus 1BB for each limper is a good minimum.

2. Push preflop. A good rule of thumb is never to just call preflop for...

Re: $22: Folding two pair to a small river bet -- too weak?

Most players will bet into someone who checks when the board brings a scare card like that so its hard to make a read in this case.

Re: $22: Folding two pair to a small river bet -- too weak?

Not betting the flop is pretty crazy, what more do you want from a flop?

River is a toss up. I'd call. Besides the hearts bluff, sometimes people make crazy "value bets" with stuff like QT.

Re: TT hand, 55s

I might have raised a bit more preflop, just so my stack/pot ratio isn't so awkward on the flop.

I'd fold the river. Works out badly here, but this is the only hand you beat and even then it's a...

Re: $33 ATs on button w/ 650 chips at lvl 3

Make it 150. I'd need some kind of read on the blinds if one of them pushes, but I would lean towards folding.

BB will call 5BB raise with Q5 sooted and the like. Does this affect your play?

Yes. I might raise 5BB instead of my usual 3.

Re: $22 hand, Good, thoughtful play?

FPS. A free card is just too dangerous. I doubt even a LAG is betting here with two unconnected overs, or a suited ace, or an underpair.

Re: (22) SB open limps what do you do?

I push unless I know the limp is an unusual play for the player. Which seems to be the case here.

Re: $33 Should I be folding these?

Push looks right, although folding is also OK, I think.
