Re: Modern violin music?

Try out Dirty Three. I believe they're all instrumental post-rock and use a lot of violin.

Re: 2-4NL, will i ever establish myself at this limit??

You need a bigger bankroll.

I played my way up to $5K at 1/2 NL, playing very short-handed (HU or 3 handed, mostly), and dumped a majority of my roll in the space of a week losing coin-flips and...

Re: 97s.

I suppose you're raising most pocket pairs on the button in this spot - still, representing a set just isn't going to work against most opponents. I think a lot of tens call you here - on the one...

Re: 2 live 2/5 folds.... possibly very boring

Hand 1 seems standard enough.

Hand 2 is interesting - is he good enough to check raise with a lower pocket pair knowing you didn't hit aces full? I'd consider checking the flop but you may get...

Re: Got min raised and I have the best hand

I haven't read the other responses.

In Hand 1, A flush card on the turn slows both of you down since neither of you can put the other on a non-flush draw. The board is otherwise drawless. If you...

Reading books and 2+2 vs. Experience

This is an odd post, so bear with me.

I multi-table NL200 6 max. I've built my roll from an initial deposit of $400 into around $6000 over the last nine months.

I've read most of the books I...

Re: AA line I\'ve never taken before...

To me his hand range is two hands based on that bet : AK or QQ. Wouldn't he re-raise with KK pre-flop? You have one crushed and one crushes you. AK's not calling a three-bet though.

Re: Profitability of calling large raises with small pocket pairs?

This seems like a fallacy. If they're raising with marginal holdings all the time, can't you win a lot more often unimproved, or even more outrageously - by reraising pre-flop? Don't just play for...

Re: Can I ever lay this down?

Maybe - but I think you make it difficult on yourself by checking the turn. Why not lead out there? Were you going for a check-raise, or did you already consider that there might be a higher flush...

Re: How to counter a continuation bet?

Do you have any reads on your opponent? That I think is a big part of this - if he's fishy enough to call your lead with overcards, this may not be a good play. Furthermore if he's likely to call a...

Re: Standard AA line?

I think you need to either raise more on the flop, or just call. Personally I like jacking it up to about 55. The pot will be 55+18+28 so you will be giving about 2-1. Your flop raise...

Haha, that's what I figured. I'm always tempted to ask 'Which set?' after plays like this, but then I just sound bitter, as well as announcing that I folded an overpair.
