Re: Perhaps a different line

If you don't raise preflop, you should raise the flop. If he's aggressive, he's betting lots of nothing hands on the flop when he limps in from SB. You don't mind taking down the pot immediately as...

Re: Moving Up Is Hard To Do

The key is identifying what is different. The "average" player at the new level is usually just a tad bit better at something (or somethings) than the "average" player at the old table. Figure out...

Re: JJ in big pot - making bets that aren\'t for value.

I think it's fine. Lose to BB's QQ or CO's weak ace and get on to the next hand. There's little else you can do.

(Check behind on the turn and fold the river UI? It's worth considering if BB isn't...

Giving up on the turn

I've only got about 30 hands with villain so far. He seems fairly loose and generally passive. I suspect his PFR is around 10 during this small sample (that is, he's raised only a couple times that I...

Re: Yet another low-limit stud 8 hand...

I would have limped to close the action if villain had not completed the bring-in, and that's probably already a pretty loose limp with the dead hearts and the 5/6 dead as well.

Stud8 - Day 6, Hand 6: Quick check-up on folding a low draw

This looks like I'm drawing to a losing low, so it's an easy fold. Right?

7 Card Stud High-Low ($0.25/$0.50), Ante $0.05, Bring-In $0.10 (converter (http://j.1asphost.com/greenage))

Stud8 - Day 6, Hand 5: Wanted to bet 4th and froze up on 5th

I wanted to bet 4th to possibly help pick up the pot later (as well as misrepresent my hand for those times I pick up another low on 5th), but I chickened out and took the free card. Maybe that sort...

Stud8 - Day 6, Hand 4: Yes, it\'s a 3-flush

The game is generally loose passive, and I thought I would be able to sneak in for one bet. Then I felt compelled to call the raise. On 4th, the flush was still very live and the pot multiway, so I...

Re: Raising a gutshot for a free card?

The preflop coldcall is very bad. Your hand does not do well against a raise, even with the dead money in the pot (if you had posted as well, it would be different). 3-betting might be superior to...

Re: I am horrible with 99

With no read, I think I would continue to fire at the pot (bet-fold). There are some amazingly loose flop peels that are taken on innocuous boards. If both players call your turn bet, check-fold the...
