Re: Open pushing in later stages

that line is a scared, weak play. it sounds like you're afraid of the boogeyman behind his cards.

pushing AK there puts your risk/reward all out of whack. why push to win a tiny pot when the...

Re: Starting hands. Too tight?

have you read HOH? if you haven't it will help.

Re: calculating stack ratio

the number of BB isn't nearly as useful as M ratio. the descrepancy is magnified once the antes kick in... simply adding up BB's won't give you an acurate view of your stack strength.

Re: The Orange Zone: Summary of a Pushbot

Re: Half your stack on a suited ace?

you gotta rasie with the suited aces pre flop. don't listen to these folders. suited aces are the 3rd most valuable type of hand, behind big pairs and big cards, but ahead of small pairs and suited...

Re: quick look at a hand... how many outs do i need?

Re: Too passive or just right? What do the experts think?

i'm not an expert either, but i will draw on advice from THE expert barry greenstein. he discusses this in his book, and i've heard him discuss it in interviews.

Re: % Finishing in the Money

calling an allin with A3o isn't always a bad thing.

ROI is more important than ITM. it's far better to get one first place than alot of barely in the money finishes.

Re: Is a disregard for money an essential trait to become better?

i'm with zetack on this one. you have to maintain a profound respect for the money away from the table. alot of good poker players go broke playing craps, boozing, womanizing, etc.

Re: When not to make a continuation bet

i disagree. i think by firing into 'thinking players' is exactly how you come up with a big score. i make 3 continuation bets and take down the pot. now i'm ahead, and if the next 2 times i get...

Re: I\'m curious.

i admit, i'm an A ragger. i play almost exclusively in tournies though, so that may skew my opinion a bit.
