Re: Question on Behavior in Tournament Play

For the second question, it's called "implied collusion". It is somewhat common courtesy to check it down when both players have a third guy all-in, you should check it through...the thought being,...

Re: How many royals have you had to date?

Got my first ever in a live tourney last weekend. Second hand of the tourney. I'm JQc in the BB. UTG min raises to 200. All fold to me. I call. Flop comes Kc-10c-7h. Check/bet 300/call. Turn...

Re: AJ on the button facing too much action.

I like the turn call. Villain(s) may then place you as the one on the flush draw and, assuming no more diamonds come, you may even get bet into if he was raising a worse Jack, Straight draw or even...

Re: Tell me if I understand Pot Odds correctly

Assuming 4 outs on the turn:

You've seen 6 cards so far (your two, and the four community cards), so with 4 outs, you know the other 42 cards are bad. So the odds of you making your hand are 42:4...

Re: folding a hand preflop after it is raised

The idea of limping with some of the hands mentioned notwithstanding, I'm not sure I've ever found a fold for one more bet preflop. Let's look at the worst case: you limp, folds around to the BB...

Re: Should my PFR% be lower at the lower limits?

You should still be raising with JJ even if you expect 6 to every flop. It's about equity here, IMO. You're going to win with JJ more than one out of every 7 times (again, you're assuming 6 to the...

Re: How do I put in more hours/week. (Long/Introspective)

Interesting stuff here. I work probably 50 hr/wk and play poker about 20 hr/wk. I usually play 2/4 x4. The times when I find I'm getting a little drained, I usually either play live 10/20 at the...

AK TPTK vs Pressure

Live 10/20 casino game. Villain has been talkative, drinking, and has shown down at least 3 bluffs in the first 90 min at the table. At least one each of the "no hand, no draw bet/raise all...

Re: QQ fold on turn?

I actually would be into the raiser on the flop. First of all, you may have the best hand. Most people's 3-bet range include AK, JJ, even 10-10. Combined, there are more ways to make those hands...

Re: November goals - how did it go

I had several goals:

1) 20k hands between 2/4 and 3/6. I'm at 18.5k. Will likely just miss.

2) 2 BB/100. Wow did I miss. I had a down month. I lost at both levels. I guess that'll...

Re: Live 10/20 Question

Let me pose another question: say I call, all call. We have 14small bets. Flop comes Ks - 6h - 8h.

Considering I now have 15 outs twice, I'd lead out, hoping to trap people before the...

Re: How much is too much?

IMO, It's not about how much you're up or down, it's about how good/bad the game is, and your position at the table.

If the game's good, I stay.

Live 10/20 Question

Okay, last Friday I was at the Hollywood Casino in Aurora, IL playing 10/20 at a juicy, juicy table. Weak, passive. Only one other guy was decent. One hand I want thoughts on.

Re: folded $6000 pot for $400 on river.

I think the thing to consider is not whether he had the flush, but what's in his head? Hindsight says this:

Re: Requested Post - 88

I don't particularly care for the LRR with 3 callers between you and BB. I do not consider 88 a hand that is guaranteed a fold if you don't hit, and with 3 callers between BB and your 3-bet, you're...

Re: how do you play this river?

First, I raise PF here. It's prob my lowest PF raise hand, but i want to eliminate Ax if possible. Considering this wasn't done, I think I just call the river.

I also consider 3betting the turn.
