Re: Can You Call This down. - SURPRISING RESULTS!

Seat 2 isn't a genius. He's spewing, and it worked out because no one had improved at all. You said that Seat 5 is loose-passive. If Seat 2 has a pattern mapper and knew that Seat 5 only had the...

Re: $5/$10 Stud Hi - Rolled

I think you probably got as much money out of this one as possible. Either way, opponents are going to be cautious when that third heart hits on 5th, so there's no guarantee of picking up extra...

Re: What would you rather have?

I don't think there's a right answer. It's kind of a silly question... like, when I have the K-5-K do I know that I'm up against A-J-7s? If so, it's pretty easy to play the hand perfectly, and vice...

Re: Bellagio 50/100: Biggest laydown in my life, Idiot or Genius?

Well, the fold might be correct as you may be drawing dead. However, like you said, your information raise on 5th saves you only one bet if in fact you are dead, where if there's any doubt that he...

Re: Tourney Schedule

Yeah, hopefully some more stud/8 people show up next time. There's something just not right about me placing in the money at stud/8.

If they think you're stealing, that's a good reason to just bet on fourth.

When someone raises on third and then checks after pairing his door card, alarm bells should go off. I lean...

Re: A Heads-Up Hand - Standard?

Well, what's the reason for the raise? Do you think you're still ahead at this point? Do you think he's capable of laying down the hand before the river UI if you keep firing at him?

Re: 20/40 Bad call on third and getting what I deserved.

Even at 1/2 and 2/4, I give opponents some credit for their aggression until I see them make a dumb play. I would assume that this is an even better policy at 20/40. I don't think you get to assume...

Wouldn't it of been better to bet 5th instead, hoping to get it raised and face them with 2 cold? If you still feel your hand is best now you can 3bet him.

Re: 20/40 Bad call on third and getting what I deserved.

I don't see that frappe gave a reason why missing a bet on the river is bad--he just said that it was. I'm asking why. What reasonable opponent would bet out on 6th after being raised on 5th by a...

Re: 20/40 Bad call on third and getting what I deserved.

Also, you probably don't want to hear it, but I think you can save this river bet. You have said three times now "seriously, I have trip 9's or better" and he's still in the hand. I do like your...

Re: 20/40 Bad call on third and getting what I deserved.

I don't think the call on 3rd is so bad. What makes it borderline is the dead 9... but he's possibly raising to isolate with 8-A-8, or he's popping with Ah-Kh-8h or something similar. If he's...

Re: OK Emery - this is aggression done right (LC)

Heh, so you recommend catching open trips on 5th when you're being aggressive? /images/graemlins/smile.gif

Re: $3/$6 hand

What makes it tough is that he might be willing to raise with K's up in this spot. I think check-calling the river is the better plan in this spot--you have to be worried that either one of them...

Re: to slowplay or not to slowplay?

It's hard to say. I would prefer betting out on 4th if there were more hands that looked like solid draws. But A-4, 9-2, J-2 offsuit and 3-Q suited for the bringin... I think you might be better...

Re: I hate two small pair

Would you consider check-folding on 5th? You have basically no shot at the low, and you can easily be behind for the high.

Re: adjustments for 3/6 and 5/10

Well, I don't know if this actually speaks to the reason why you're doing better... but with the same ante but relatively higher bet sizes, the 5/10 game is going to reward tight, conservative play. ...

Well, you know what went wrong here, it seems. You can consider folding 3rd, but after that you should be going to the river (especially since the paired door is already all-in).

Re: 30/60 Stud hi hand

Heh, how tricky/aggressive is Seat 3? I think he's saying pretty clearly "I've got aces" on 4th. I think this is a fold on 4th (or 5th, if you must peel one on 4th) unless you know he's likely to...
