Re: I had the ace of hearts and the king of clubs in this hand.

[ QUOTE ]
What kinds of hands are we up against here against a 16/12 tag which:

1. Give us that much action?
2. Aren't either beating us or tied?

You think we get that many bets from KK?...

But 3/6 seems like a rock garden. I get the impression that the general consensus is bypass 3/6 at Party.

Not necessarily. Tight does not equal good. Many of the tight...

Re: I get criticized for this play - you decide

Is it possible to play this any better postflop than you did? I don't think so.

Flop: You have 9 outs to the nuts and possibly another 3 for top pair, so even if you don't get a free card your...

Stellarwind's reply in this thread (http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/showthreaded.php?Cat=0&Number=3164065&page=) is a good read, and should give you some ideas on how to proceed.

Re: a,9s

[ QUOTE ]
is a,9s about the limit for a raise here, or maybe a,8s?

I will mostly raise A8s here as well, and against a limper I know to be weak I would raise a bit lower than that....

Re: a,9s

A raise would be considered standard.

Re: 88 Out of Position

Villain's openraise from MP is standard.

He doesn't know whether you hit the flop or not, and he's got a hand so he decides to take the lead and inform you of this fact. When you raise, he hopes...

Re: AQ or better 88-AA???

Maybe you could make money by super-tight multitabling with rakeback against mediocre opponents, but why would you want to do that?

If you want to develop as a player, you should focus on...

Re: Blind defense - Bringing a knife to a gun fight

Preflop is good.

What to do after the flop is very dependent on reads and what has happened previously between the two of you. But you should realize that 88 compares favorably to Villain's hand...

Re: 3/6 - 3rd highest 4-flush

Nice hand.

The river bet is a good value bet, since you will win 1 BB those 6 times Villain calls with a smaller flush and lose 2 BB those 2 times he check-raises you with the nuts.

So betting...

Re: KK makes an easy river fold

Given the pot size I don't agree that it's an easy fold. /images/graemlins/tongue.gif

I'm interested in your reasoning after the turn cap. Would you have gone to SD if the river was a non-diamond...

Re: Should I have slow played here?

Against the typical low limit lineup slowplaying isn't necessary, but this is the kind of situation where you could consider doing so (unraised pot, rainbow flop with no draws).

I usually bet the...

Re: Common situation in MP

This is definitely raise or fold. If you feel that raising will often just get the hand 3 to 4 handed out of position with little fold equity on the flop, folding is fine.

Re: Turn - What thinkest thou?

Is SB one of those who play tight, but can't lay down KK-JJ when an ace flops? He doesn't seem to like his hand very much at this point, yet, he doesn't fold. A big pair is a possibility, or he could...

Re: Feels Like Good Play -- But Is It?

Reraise preflop. You have a strong hand and a reraise will likely give you the button.

Playing it as you did, fold the flop. Your overcards + backdoor flushdraw don't give you enough equity to...

Re: [3/6 Party] Ugh, I turned 2 pair...

Bet the flop and take control of the hand.

You're up against two weak (or so we assume) opponents plus a random BB hand. You have second pair, good kicker and no reason to believe you're not ahead...

Re: 3/6 Table Standards

Tables in the VP$IP 25-30 range are not that rare. You just have to look a bit harder than at 2/4.

Also, having position on an extremely loose player (VP$IP > 50) can be very profitable even if...

Re: does this players stats mandate a 3bet PF here?

How many hands worse than KQo will he raise with? There are not that many, since all ace rags and small pairs are favourites over your hand.

For example:
