Splitting the MTT Forum

I believe that both beginning and experienced players would be well-served by a forum split. The spread of poker understanding in this forum is so broad that it is counterproductive. The play in...

Re: deep-stacked aces

Bigger stack should have raised the flop. The turn call is pretty bad, especially because the Q is a horrible card for him because some of the time bigstack should have a KJT9/KJ98/KQJT type hand...

Re: Unloading QQ, Why Is It So Hard??

What are the blinds here anyway, that the pot is only 600 after 20xBB goes in pre, then you check raise the flop and get called? 5/10 with 1500 chip stacks? Something seems wrong.

With 100 BB or...

Re: Unloading QQ, Why Is It So Hard??

In general, yes, these are tough situations. People lose a lot of money on dominated overpairs and overpairs v. sets.

Here's the thing about this hand. Forget what hand you held for a second and...

Re: Bellagio 5diamond Hand

*Disclaimer that this above my buyin level.*

I would lean toward reraising preflop, because your call heads you into a multiway pot most of the time, assuming the good players at the table read...

Re: Trying to look objectively at an AK decision

[ QUOTE ]
I think having you covered his calling range of your push is just too large, why get into a coinflip for no reason. A small raise from a big stack in MP1 seems like a trap, I call.

Re: Trying to look objectively at an AK decision

Missing key information - how often has Villain been raising? Has he folded to reraises? Have you been aggressive?

Re: Time to get tricky???

As for the reraise, if you reraise you want to make it 4500, and you'd much rather do this with AA or 72 than J9s. You want to see the flop with this hand, you have position and you say he is weak,...
