Re: Aces Hand

I didn't even notice you were playing SH... villian could easly have Qx, TT, a pair + draw... all sorts of hands.

Re: Aces Hand

I don't know why you think villian has a set on the flop as opposed to a flush draw or AQ though...

Re: First 10k hands after SSHE

Your sample size is so small that your win rate is basically meaningless however...

Raise more preflop.
Play more hands.
Defend your blinds.
Steal blinds.

Re: I think I played this wrong. Comments please

Yes, it would be a value raise but SSH is saying that it's more profitable to wait for the turn.

Re: Cap pre-flop, Fold Flop

I wonder if the hand example on p. 274 of SSH applies here.

Obviously there are some differences. The board here has straight potential... but then in the SSH example there is the additional...

Re: My weakness...middle pairs

Check folding this flop is fine.

If you don't want to give it up so easily you can lead and fold to a raise.

Re: I think I played this wrong. Comments please

Preflop: Good

Flop: Call. A raise will not protect your hand. You are giving your opponents 16:2 odds on a call and therefore it would be correct for them to call with a 7 or 2. See SSH p. 163-5...

Re: Q/Q in BB and it comes to me CAPPED!

It's how you play that is important... winning/losing a hand means nothing.

But I'm glad you got half the pot. /images/graemlins/smile.gif

For those of you who say raise...

I understand your reasonings behind raising and I don't need you to repeat them. /images/graemlins/smile.gif

SSH says that we should be limping KTs in MP in a tight game (note that everything on...

Re: ATs Kill Pot - What to do with this flop

Re: Stealing the blinds with QQ

I always cap preflop QQ-88 in these situations but only sometimes with AA/KK.

I think the postflop play is fine. If he has a K you certainly don't want to raise as he isn't folding and you don't...

Re: SSHE starting hands question

The issue in this case would be your position... I don't think anybody on here would argue against raising ATs from LP or MP.

Also the chart in SSH for tight games says to limp ATs in EP.

Re: SSHE starting hands question

A lot of(most?) 2+2ers will tell you to raise in a 'tight' game with a few hands in EP that SSH says not to (I'm thinking mainly AJo, ATs, KQs, 99). I have asked a couple times about why the...

$11 Stars: AKo meets push early

First round so no reads. 10/20 blinds. Me and villian both have 1500 stacks.

I raise UTG with AKo to 75. Villian in MP goes all in. Is this normally a call or a fold.

Re: Q/Q in BB and it comes to me CAPPED!

Yes this is a 'wait for the turn' hand unless you are trying to get your opponents to fold backdoor flush/straight draws. Look at the odds you are giving your opponnets with your flop raise.

Re: Book Suggestions

SSH is a great book but I don't think it will help you too much.

I suggest Pot Limit & No Limit Poker by Bob Ciaffone and Stewart Reuben.
