Re: need help on (failed) all-in calls against draws

Welcome, Kirk.

First, try to use the hand converter - narratives are harder to follow.

Second, you got your money in when you were ahead, and the villains drew out on you. Cards happen.

Re: FT Bubble - Good or Bad?

Pre-flop the pot is 20k, and your stack is 66k. I think most of the time I'm shoving this pre-flop.

On the flop you have overs and a lovely flush draw. I'm shoving this as well. I want to maximize...

Re: tricky TPNK hand 15/30

I'll probably pot it on the flop. If I'm up against a real hand, I want to find out now when the pot is small.

Even without BB still in the hand, implied odds make this an easy call. The maniac...

Re: Wasting Aces...

This early against the opponents you described I'm raising AA about 110% of the time. Built big pots with big hands.

Re: Don\'t read if you hate dumb posts. How do I win MTT?

As others have said, read HOH and this board.

As for playing, I would recommend the Stars MTT SnGs, which range from 18 to 45 players (plus the $20+2 180-man). These are excellent practice for...

Re: Your Saw Flop%

I think the larger point is that early on in your career you should be dumping hands that look pretty but are actually mediocre at best. (All of this depends on blinds, opponents, stacks, etc., but...

Re: Your Saw Flop%

I used to be much higher than I am now, but tend to run at around 17%, and find my game has gotten much better. Basically I started mucking many more hands in EP. I don't know if I want to go as low...

Re: The relationship between MTT and STT play

Since most payouts are so steep, and final tables are so rare, you gotta win when you get there. The best practice for destroying FTs is the endgame of STTs when aggression is more important than...

Re: How Many Suckouts Do You Make In Your Tourney Wins?

I agree with that the different kinds of luck are key. We don't usually think of doubling or tripling up with AA or KK as getting lucky, but it is extremely lucky that some donk decided to go to felt...

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

My favorite cop-out: It Depends.

It depends in part on what you mean by "steal". If you have a look at Strassa's hand with the masters you see him raising in LP with a lowish suited one-gap. It's...

I said some of this in another post, but:

What McMelchior said. It's not that great a price to make what could be the second-best hand.

Re: Bottom Set facing Lots of Resistance

On a monotone board I MIGHT slow down, but probably not.

Good players would have hit quads on the river. Keep practicing though. /images/graemlins/wink.gif

Re: noob Stars FPP question.

Are you sure they expire? That seems like a Party move, not Stars.

I'd get the mock turtle-neck. 100% cotton. If not that, go with MTTs (NOT the STT) to the $500k guaranteed.

I have a couple of concerns over a split, several of which have come up in other posts.

Re: $22 180 hand, calling on all streets.

I'm raising this up pre-flop. No sense in getting out-flopped by worse hands. (Incidentally, running a three-street bluff IS manaical.)

If I accidentally called, given your description of this...

Harrington is making a number of assumptions that don't hold true for most of us: First, his opponents are paying attention, many of ours are not, so any sort of deception is minimal at best. Second,...
