Re: PS $22 - Do you just flat call this raise?

I'm not worried about giving SB good odds, since there are so few two-pair or trips he can make which will beat us. It's only A5 or A2 we're potentially worried about--our call denies those hands...

Oh well, that wouldn't even enter my mind here, honestly. Not when the pusher has 8BB.. if he had 5-6, maybe.

I think I see your point: AQ and this chip position at this...

[ QUOTE ]
Never mind the red zone, whatever that actually means anyways.

[/ QUOTE ]

It means stack sizes vs. cost-per-orbit is so low that no real meaning can be read into all-in bets.

Re: $27... another hand in push fold mode... AQ

Why are we afraid of a coinflip if we have 50% of the third-largest stack and everyone is in the red zone? I though we were supposed to be looking for coinflips in this situation.

Re: JJ hand from Super

Explain why you are all-in with two overcards and three broadways showing. I assume this is early when donks are still calling here wit A2.

Re: near the bubble in the party 75k; SB vs. BB

I'd prefer to define the hand a little earlier with a large checkraise on the flop, assuming he's disciplined enough post-flop to fold an okay hand. This would separate your hand a little bit in...

Re: Curtains Hand - 66 Lvl 2

My default is just to minraise it in this situation, unless you have a really tough player in the BB, in which case I might go 3x or 4x depending on stack size. You have position and probably the...

Re: obligatory FT brag post

Just finished 11th in another 50+5, missing the second bubble by one (11th-20th paid the same). Had 99 EP, raised all in, ran into tight player with KK. Oh well.

obligatory FT brag post

Thanks, 2+2 MTT forum. Finished 8th in this morning's PP 50+5 NL 3:00am. ~ $350.

It's all give and no take at this point, people. My posts are still complete nonsense.

Re: When not to make a continuation bet

One of the disadvantages of playing a hand post-flop from early position is that any attempt to get in a raise bears the cost of occasional missed bets and free cards. The late position player who...

Re: Should I have picked this hand to take a stand with?

You should've pushed with T4s if you were opening. I know, sounded weird to me also until a few days ago. Buy HOH.

Re: Blind v Blind, A-high flop

Given his tightness and his being aware of your tight image, a simple call will clarify the hand considerably. Another bet > half the pot when a blank hits the turn is easily foldable, and we can...

Re: another \"what would you do\"?

Tight guy with 30 BB calls for half his stack to a 10xBB re-raise. Seems like the best hope we could have is to isolate BB by going all-in and shutting down SB's steal (if that's what it is) and...

Bump.

I actually could use some help with this one.

I suspect the answer is push, but I'm having trouble developing the rationale to get there.

Re: Steal victim with 11 left in 180-man Stars MTT

Depends on what the stacks look like on the other table. Holding on for 9th improves your return 40%; 8th improves you 117%. Also, if some of those stacks at the other table are below 11,000, then...

Re: JJ Hand - You decide

I'm not sure how to read your reads. Do they merely linger with inferior holdings when attacked, drawing out often, or do they counter-attack and steal pots when they are shown strength?

Re: $33 MTT, Push over PF raise and coldcallers

I don't get it. What are the specific dynamics of this hand that call for the all-in? If it works, you're the tall stack at the table by about 1,000. A key "inflection point", perhaps. But does...
