Re: The ole\' 4-bet, fold to a 5-bet

Re: a fold unlike any other i\'ve ever made

Re: Playing -EV in high stakes = +EV?

"Yet when we get to high stakes games like 50/100 and 100/200 ... We no longer raise aces every time, we don't always protect our hand and we constantly raise and check-raise with nothing."

Re: Dead Man Drawing

"this looks like as good a spot as any to show. Thoughts?"

I'd rather drink hydrogen than show this hand.

Dead Man Drawing

He was in the cutoff and I was on the button. It was folded to him and he limped. I put him firmly on no ace and no pair. I raised. Both blinds folded and he called and we were headsup.

Re: Reverse domination in deep games

I think the domination of being last to act (and the bluffing accuracy that comes with it) out-dominates the domination that a king has over a three. So I think your question comes in two parts,...

Re: standard?

"I have to admit, Tommy, some of your limit stories did come to mind as I was playing this hand."

72o in BB

$20-40 NLHE. Two players limped and the small blind called. We all had 4K. I was in the big blind with 72o. I checked. Was that correct?

Re: There\'s a third time for everything

"You should maximize every EV edge you have in a cash game..."

That is a meaningless sentence to me because I am unable to know the EV's of my decisions.

Re: time-pot hand

"What kind of an extreme do you take this to?

If you get AA in the BB in your example and the SB folds (180 in the pot) would you just move in?"

Yes.
