Re: Should I go broke here (KK early tourny)

Why push? Better hands aren't folding. Just call and push when he fires the turn and is pot-committed. If he has flopped a better hand he'll still bust you - it makes no difference. If not then you...

Re: 77 in BB, mid-tourney

He's raised too much for you to play it for set value. Just fold.

Re: um, QQ fold preflop?

How many starting chips? 1000 or 1500? And why isnt call an option?

Re: JJ Line

You really should re-raise pre-flop because you are overwhelmingly likely on average to have the best hand right now and you'll be out of position for subsequent rounds. You can also get rid of the...

Re: Bellagio 80/160 4 bet flop then check turn?

He might check-raise an overpair or two big cards like AQ but when he 4-bets he must have an overpair or an eight? The fact he doesnt bet the Ten is strange ... perhaps he loves it (TT) or hates it...

Re: AKo against a min-raise PF on the button

Raise it enough so that it's uncomfortable for the CO to call - maybe another 2000 here.

Re: Playing for *LIFE-CHANGING MONEY*---what is practical here?

If you're the best at the table then there will be many more such final tables in your career and there's no point getting hung up over this one. If you want to fold now then maybe you shouldn't have...

Re: 88 in EP. (Stars $20 Deepstack) Oh, and i\'m a calling station.

I like a small raise with a medium pair, particularly with a deep stack. It inhibits someone else with a medium pair making a raise if you just limp.

After raising pre-flop I'd always make a...

Re: A8s in CO-What would you do, 2?

I like the raise and the continuation bet. Don't see any other options. However when he calls on the flop he's got something and as you have zip you're worse.

It's a stroke of luck that the 7...

Re: QQ in the BB early on

I think he believes he has the best hand. However he could believe that with 99-JJ and play like this so I think you call. He might also have 77 and now have the gutshot.

Re: Another KQs hand (with a big stack) - How’s my line?

I think there's a very small chance villain is bluffing. In fact I'd put him on a big pair JJ-AA. He's going to like this flop but perhaps not put you on diamonds until its too late.

I don't think...

Re: Two difficult hands: Is there a lesson to be learned here?

First hand I like the limp for the reasons you give. I fold on the flop as it's not necessary to go broke with TPTK when youre in good shape in a tourney. If he's buying the pot, so be it.

Second...

Re: Two hands from Bellagio. Call or Fold?

Hand #1 I fold in a heartbeat. I'm sure he can beat AK (or AQ in this case) and you might not have any real outs. JJ/99 most likely with AJ possible too.

Hand #2 I dont like the raise to 3500...

Re: Strange hand busts me before the bubble PP $15000 Gaur.

Min-raise the turn. If re-raised drop it. If called he has a 4, but then your bluff on river wouldnt have been called.

Re: Someone has a huge leak in their game. Please tell me who.

I was the original person the argument was with - although the hand belonged to someone else we were sweating.

I limp because:

Although 200 out of 1180 is a significant chunk of our stack, QJ...

Re: Was this collusion and what should I have done about it?

If they were good colluders you wouldnt know they were father and son and they wouldnt be sitting next to eachother. Just take the donks down next time.

You seem very confused. You WANT people calling your allins with 4 outs.

Re: 1st hand of 1st deep stack tourney

I dont lead out on the turn with two callers. One of them has the flush now (and the other probably has a better ace). I check and hope u get to see a cheapish river. Anyone giving you action can...

Re: WPF floor decision on 1 oversize chip bet

First of all the players don't decide unilaterally on the legitimacy of raises. When the dealer called a raise he had to protest there. He definitely can't see some players fold THEN decide to insist...
