Re: Do You Ever Worry About a Better Two-Card Flush?

Given that you have the others covered by a substantial amount, I would not be worried too much by a higher flush. If it happens, at least you are still alive.

I'd bet out t300, hoping to get a...

Re: Stars $22 180 SnG, 43 left, SB hand vs Big Stack

While betting the flop is fine, I'm not a big fan of the size of the bet. To me it says "I've got top pair, but I'm afraid of draws, so I'm going to bet more than the pot to let you know I have top...

Re: Do you guys have a \"time\" to start to steal?

My rule of thumb -- When the blinds are 5% of my stack.

Lets say I have t1000. I don't usually steal at the 10/15 or 15/30 levels, but would start stealing at the 25/50 level. But I'm flexible. ...

Re: A9s in 45 person tourny

Like the others, I'm not a fan of how you played the hand at any stage but the turn.

Preflop:
- A9s is not a good hand to raise an EP limper with 3 left to act. EP could be limping with many...

Re: expected value of tournament play

I use PokerTracker. It's usable, but you have to calculate the final table and win %s yourself.

With Party, when you import your hand histories, you will automatically import where you finish and...

Re: AA with short stack late position limper

Another idea might be to raise the CO all-in by making a raise to t1100.

The BB may interpret any raise as an attempt to isolate the CO with a less than premium hand. He may call or reraise a...

Re: Limping with crap on low buy-in tourneys.

Get Pokertracker and track your hands. Do it in some micro/low limit ring games if you have to. It is the best way to convince yourself that trash hands like that are not profitable. Even if you...

Variance.

Re: PS $11...down to 11, could I have folded this?

Not a naked steal either, the raiser has to be concerned about the suspicious limp from the CO.
