Re: Live Hand: Pop it now or later?

Really? Thats a little weak tight don't you think? As for the "mindset" its based on what is likely since it is very difficult to put either of them on a hand due to their loose limping ranges.

Live Hand: Pop it now or later?

4/8 Live at Riverrock Casino

Generally passive table with the exception of UTG and UTG+1

Re: Stumbling Through Purgatory

Preflop fine, Flop fine. Seems like SB probably has AK and missed.

We need reads. Absent reads, I fold to check/raise. Unlike BB is a complete donkey, he is not pulling this check/raise given the...

Re: Live Game - Incorporating reads

You're right - I like your insight on the turn bet. I don't know why, but even at tighter tables (2/4, 3/6, or 4/8 live) turns never get raised unless someone hit 2 pair or higher.

Anyway here are...

Live Game - Incorporating reads

4/8 Game at Riverrock Casino. Typical table full of LPPs, with a one or two LAG and TPP.

Re: Are these snowmen good?

Really? I've been less aggressive preflop in NL based on the posts I see here in the NL forum. Anyone have a good PF guide? I searched and I always see the "money is made post flop" argument.

Re: AA Hand - Correct amounts to Bet?

Ok that make sense. Now I don't really have that strong of a read. If I call how would you play the turn? The turn gives a straight possibility. Is it a check/call line or a bet/fold line? And how...

AA Hand - Correct amounts to Bet?
