Re: Couple of hands on chip accumulation vs stack preservation

Great post BTW... I love to think about scenarios like this.

I don't like your slow playing of this first hand, a nice pot sized bet right there, you have top 2 pair. I'll assume that the K and 9...

Re: A Pacific Trout Hand

I dont know the structure of the tournamnet, but with 10 BB you need to make a move. Folded to you, all-in is your move here. You are better that 2 random hands. If you get called you are not that...

Re: Help me buy a car!

19 year old girls have no idea how cool a subaru WRX is. Do not buy the WRX, chicks will think you're a dork.

Re: Resteal by a solid opponent

I play the lower limits, 11 and 22, and I have to say that there are very few players that are paying attention, maybe about 3 of the 9 players. half of them are playing other games. Table image only...

Re: Resteal by a solid opponent

Well my point is that chips are precious in a SNG. If you've got em, there is no reason to call off half of them when you are at BEST a slight dog. If you are calling off 1/4 of your stack here, then...

Re: Resteal by a solid opponent

SNGs are way to fast to be blowing half of your stack on a call like this. You are a dog to any pair and any Ace. Just get rid of it. You are not desperate, just fold and be done with it.

Re: $10 party rebuy

raise to about 3-4k If he doesn't fold be very guarded. If he raises, you're gonna have a tough decision, but what can you really beat? Your a dog to any pair especially 10s and better.

Re: Opinions on this satellite bubble push

I don't have an opinion on the push YET. With the A-9 you need to ask yourself "do I need to play this hand?" There is one player in the pot and he raised, you have about 25 BB left, your 2 away from...

Re: Loose Passive Table, QQ preflop in mid position

All IN!!! You will get 6 callers and lose the pot, but who cares you're there for the drama anyway.

there is no such thing as a bad beat, only bad plays and bad reactions. The lesson in your KJ scenario is how to learn how to react to loosing the hand. To learn that ANYTHING can happen, and does. I...

Re: Ways to induce a call??

you said... "Turn is a brick (pot is ~32). I bet $40, intentionally overbetting, hopefully to get him to think I'm bluffing and that I'm challenging his statement that he has a 9."
