Re: Respect the L/RR with no read?

I would put in another raise somewhere -- either preflop or on the flop or turn.

Re: Cap pre-flop, Fold Flop

[ QUOTE ]
does anyone bet out on this flop?

[/ QUOTE ]

Yeah, I probably would, partly just to see how many people want to play back at me.

Re: Cap pre-flop, Fold Flop

Reads would be useful here, as you could have the best hand versus the nearly all-in guy and the Button (who could have AK or even AQ/TT) on the flop. I'm tempted to cold-call, but that's about the...

A later hand

Here's a later encounter with the LAG where my stubbornness did pay off. But in this hand I was heads-up, and the draw I had on the turn helped get me to the river. And once I was on the river, the...

Results and thoughts

I folded on the river. I have some doubts now about this fold being best (maybe I'm being results-oriented), but in any case, I would have felt better about the hand if I had folded earlier, like...

You seem to be very concerned about the spades, at the time I was somewhat concerned but I felt that reverse domination and drawing dead, were what made me fold. Yes I did 3bet/fold. I'll...

With respect to PF, I might just have called, unless I thought MP2 was going to fold rather than call two more. However, I certainly won't fault you for three-betting there.

What about reverse implied odds? It will cost me 2.5 BB to see this river. Even if villain is on a play or draw will I be good enough of the time to warrant a call down.

Re: AKs Flop Laydown

Don't fold yet.

You need to peel against KJ, and Villain also could be playing a big draw (like J /images/graemlins/spade.gif T /images/graemlins/spade.gif) this way, I think.

Actually, given...

Re: Some hands for checkup

Hand 1: When UTG+1 wakes up on the turn after calling all those bets on the flop, it sure looks like he has QT. However, since he's a retarded LAG, we certainly can't rule out a slowplay of a more...

Re: 66 button party 2/4

Preflop is fine.

On the turn, I'd consider betting again, since CO is loose and could be chasing with a lot of things (ace-high or a gutshot, for instance). Also, although based on your read he...

Re: I need to bet this river, right?

I think the river check is all right. MP1 is acting like he's chasing, and AQ did just pull ahead of you. And he'll call with that, whereas I'd imagine he'll fold ace-high most of the time.

I...

Re: This is why we don\'t give free cards

I think you should call a bet on the flop anyway.

Did someone actually have you beat on the flop? I guess maybe SB did, but if he had a pocket pair, he probably suspected he was drawing. (Or...

Re: Party 1/2 : AA - do we wait for turn?

UTG called on the turn even though from his perspective (1) the 7d was a very dirty out for him, and (2) if one of his opponents holds a ten, his gutshot is worthless.

I think you played it fine. ...

Re: Bad positioning vs. Leader on Flop

I don't know if calling the flop is dangerous, exactly -- you won't be able to drive out a flush draw and probably won't be able to get rid of a gutshot, either. But I'd probably go ahead and raise,...

Re: Turn Decision

I'd have to have a really strong read that Villain only checkraises monsters on the turn to fold here. And even if I did have that read, I probably wouldn't trust it enough and would call anyway.

Ugly, indecisive TT hand

MP2 is 79/16/1.6 after 268 hands. Feel free to ignore his limp-cap. I pretty much did. (A big chunk of his preflop raises were limp-reraises.)

CO is 24/11/1 after 183 hands. CO hadn't been...

Re: A Couple of 5/10 Hands...

Hand 1: Turn checks like Villain's in this hand sure are popular these days. A lot of times it seems like the action in a hand either takes place on the flop or the turn, but not both.
