Re: AQ - Should I be going to SD?

Nah, that's a pretty standard fold. There's very little you beat.

Re: Bay 101 and GC (or other Bay Area cardrooms) low limit question

There's no 4/8 at either Bay 101 or GC. I haven't played the 3/6 at either place in years, but I'm sure it's still the same or better than before. This means at least one maniac at every table. ...

Re: How did the early players do it?

You do realize that things like pot odds and expected value have been around much longer than the current poker boom, right? Same goes for the concept of game theory.

I'm not saying that Doyle...

Re: Some boring hands

Hand 1: I would have bet the turn and called a check-raise. But given your turn check, were you going to a call a non-diamond, non-T river?

Hand 2: I don't think this will work often enough to...

Re: KQo with maniac on board

Sorry, raising the river won't work here. If the SB has any sense at all, he'll know that the maniac's aggression is meaningless, so he won't fold a flush even if it's two bets back to him. Doing...

Re: 15/30 Flush... I hate folding for one more bet...

Yeah, there's no way I'd ever fold this hand to this guy. You'd have to pry the cards out of my cold dead fingers.

Re: 88 - I cold call

Let me guess, you won this hand. But other than preflop and the river, your play makes no sense here.

First, what are you calling the flop for? You have a preflop raiser, an MP caller, and a K...

Re: KQo with maniac on board

You must 3-bet this turn. The maniac has 2 cards and the SB is just tagging along with a K or some draw. Not 3-betting the turn is truly horrible because this is exactly the kind of situation where...

Re: questions on every street, backdooring a straight

Yikes.

I typically would not 3-bet this preflop, opting instead to call and see what the flop brings. You may have the best hand right now, but with that many opponents, you are really vulnerable...

Re: Value bet after turn checkraise?

This is a pretty straightforward value bet. In fact, I would even pay off a check-raise because that would look suspicious enough to be a move.

Re: where/how to get best poker rate in LV?

Re: ehh, Party 100-200

I don't see the point of the flop raise. Yeah, you might be able to get both of these guys to fold, but the pot is small, and your hand has questionable showdown value unimproved. There's nothing...

Re: multiple forks in the road

Preflop is fine. Given that you have no info on the opponents, I agree with Barron that calling is better than 3-betting.

On this kind of flop, I would typically go for a check-raise. ...

Re: winner at 20/40, loser at 30/60?

You should post your complete stats. My WTSD is lower than yours by 2 percentage points, but my W$SD is 58. You may be calling down too much with unimproved A high when it's clear you're beat, or...

Re: A tricky one

Interesting. It's possible that one of them is playing T9 this way, but it's fairly unlikely. What is more likely is that CO has K4. BB is tougher to pinpoint, but your hand is very strong, even...

Re: winner at 20/40, loser at 30/60?

I don't have much experience in the 20/40 game, but I used to play the 15/30 before the 30/60 opened up, so I can tell you what I think are the main differences between the 30/60 and the old 15/30...
