Re: 15/30 Flush... I hate folding for one more bet...

Seems pretty simple. He's playing 70% of his hands, and he's aggressive and tricky. Call.

There are a million ways for him to reach the river without a 9 or 5 and bet. He could have any single...

Re: is this the easiest situation to fold AA?

I don't see any problem with just calling the flop. The turn card is going to have a big impact on your equity, and if you are fortunate enough to get a turn card you like, you're much happier...

Hi etizzle,

What I'm trying to say is that from my point of view, it appears that the villain has a mediocre hand where he thinks he is WA/WB and...

Table selection

You know, I get it. Table selection is important. But come on... you have to use some common sense!

Right now there's a midstakes table with a pretty high AvgPot size. Great, let's sit down,...

Re: 100-200 Lifeline

Hi Kwaz,

You make an interesting argument and it's certainly consistent. What you need to consider though is that your definition of what is moral and what isn't is arbitrary. It could be...

Re: Hand Vs Good Player

CR'ing the flop sucks because there's a flush draw out and he'll put you on a draw too easily.

Doesn't that give us an additional 7 outs then? And aren't you assuming...

Re: Hand Vs Good Player

Against players with TAG stats who take this WA/WB line, I raise the river with anything I'd consider calling with and some things I wouldn't. Good luck with that.

This river bet means 1 of 2...

Re: an objective look at the hand

Ryno, your read in the post is that this guy is pretty passive once an opponent raises once. In this hand, you 4-bet the river and he is 5-betting. You think he is making a thin value 5-bet with...

Re: Thin 3-handed?

If you're going to continue, you may as well 3-bet. Give yourself a chance to win unimproved and you may be able to make up the little bit you are losing by calling intending to fold unimproved. ...

Re: The ole\' 4-bet, fold to a 5-bet

Given your read, it seems impossible that you could win. He doesn't sound like the type to give this much action with just 2s full, since you could easily have aces, kings, or jacks to beat him. ...

Re: expanding e^x

You're right. As usual, it's one of the early terms in the sequence that makes all the difference.

Re: turn spot

Hi BK,

I don't think that the villain's turn raise necessarily means he has something better than AK. This is based on my assumption that your cap on the flop does not mean that you must have...

Tex, here's an interesting mathematical fact:

e^x = 1 + x^2/2! + x^3/3! + x^4/4! + ...

You don't get raised very often when you hold the nut flush on a 4-flush board, so this argument doesn't hold much water with me (even after seeing this hand). On the other hand, with the doofus...
