Re: Blind stealing play -

Sounds like you're relying on waiting for cards that do not often come. Folding A6s on the button when folded to as a short stack is retarded, if you can increase your chip stack by +10% or more by...

Re: Big stack poker in the BB

5k doesn't hurt? Thats almost 20% of your stack and it makes that opponent that much more of a threat you would be less willing to battle it with as it would then just about halve your stack to lose...

My understanding is that that client cannot see the real money tables but otherwise is the same client in look and feel.

This is how they...

Re: $11 - 1st hand 22

Fold small pairs UTG preflop, even at low buyins.

Your attempt at leading the flop was very iffy. You tried to represent and were called.

Either come out strong preflop with the small pair...

Re: Action with Jacks an\' I\'m confused at the $109s

He's betting into 3 people in a fairly big pot and that bet is called.

I'd say you're looking at a set or slow played AA or KK from SB or MP1. I can't see AT or an under pair to the Tens making...

[ QUOTE ]

I would say no actually, you want to bet - someone may have flopped a smaller flush with 56d etc and...

Re: Pefect Blind System - I Need Help

"huge stacks" sounds to me like 50-60BB at that level? How many people do you have?

As more people play, you need to increase time per level otherwise you end up with far more gambling and you...

Re: Defining \"outplay\"

When you say "results oriented" I assume you mean in terms of monetary gain.

Re: How should I have played this flop?

Fold preflop, you have no idea what UTG is going to do. UTG limpers are always suspect unless you've been playing with the guy and know he's donked his stack up.

But since you called....

Re: Q

Define losers?

The chance of being dealt one of those big pocket pairs is very small. AA, KK and QQ are the top 3 premium (if you don't count AK which some put a little above QQ) which means that...

Defining \"outplay\"

Got into a semi-argument with someone about what it means to outplay. My definition(s):

1) Getting a better hand to fold
a) By bluffing
b) By betting aggressively (A and B _are_ different)...

Re: Would you call? (2nd hand vs. All-in)

Short of an AA read, this is a call - but as this is the 2nd hand in, you can't possibly unless you have notes on the guy.

Call, if he shows AA thats Poker and the brutality of AK.

Re: Raymer tell spotted by Annie duke

Sometimes "the best hand ever played" doesn't mean you had to make this incredible bluff or incredible call or you milked someone for all their worth holding the nuts.

Re: Betting time and other online tells in SNG\'s

Buyin level matters considerably in how you view the timing of bets.

At lower buyins one can somewhat safely assume that what appears to be an automatic bet or check/call of a non-minimum bet is...

Re: $11 5 handed, 66

You have 10BB. Don't trick yourself and say 11. I see very little difference between 10BB and 11BB in this spot. If I'm going to play a hand when I'm at or less than 10BB, I'm pushing or I'm...

Re: Is it just me or are the $11s on stars MUCH harder than the $5.50s?

As someone who almost stricly plays $5.50's and $11's on 'Stars I can tell you that there isn't a whole lot of difference.

You'll be paid more often at the $5.50's with your good hands and you can...

Re: ($5.50)Getting the most out of quads

Quads in an unraised pot, given the buyin, I minraise him on the flop. He bet 1/4 the pot. That kind of bet is a gutless feeler bet with a weak Jack.

He will check to you on the turn, if not...

Re: What to do when a \"normal\" raise pot commits you?

I think the question answers itself.

Would you raise your normal amount and fold to any reraise or flop? The play of a weak-tight player might do this.


This is one of those situations where...
