Re: The secret is revealed!

Congratulations, man... I hope to join you someday. I've been playing 1/2 on and off for a while now, both on the 6max and full table, and have been having temporary success, fortunately. I'd hate...

Re: Unorthodox play?

Maybe kicker problems, maybe against a made boat on the flop. I'd be worried about both when he makes it 3 on the turn. If neither of them has a king or a pair of 8's, then they are more insane...

Re: Getting bested by Big Slit

I have a rough time playing two classes of hands: 1) high overcards in a raised pot, 2) high pocket pair with one overcard in a raised multiway pot.

I don't see anything wrong with the way you...

Re: Some people call this lucky

I don't think you'd ever want to c/r this... C/r says, "Haha, sucker, I have a Jack! Caught you bluffing!", whereas just betting out says, "I wonder if they'll let me steal this pot with my AKo..."...

Re: Free Card Plays

I basically like this play. I wouldn't consider the flop raise as being solely a free card play, since you got enough callers to make it for value. In that position, it's often tough to turn it...

Re: Party 1/2 - AQo Played Too Passive in the BB

Generally when there are no raises to you holding AQo in the BB, then you're holding the best hand and can raise for value. The down side is that with a raise, you're building a pot big enough where...

Re: flopped baby flush

I like it all the way except for the missed c/r on the flop. It's tough to get a bettor on a monotone flop, and giving away a free spade when you're holding a baby flush would be tragic.

I'm...

Re: pair of 8\'s Jack kicker. too aggy?

I think my default line here would be to bet the flop, call the raise, then bet the turn, calling down from there. Reasoning is that MP2 could be raising with a 4-flush on the flop. When MP2 raises...

Party 1/2 6 max

I've been progressively playing more 1/2 as my bankroll grows, and will probably switch over entirely in the next couple of weeks if I don't go on a bad run.

A weird thing I've noticed, though, is...

Re: RESULTS

I guess that makes sense ... he's a caller, so he calls the pfr and flop. Then he won't raise the turn because he's afraid you have A9. It's a beautiful thing, really: when he's behind, you extract...

Re: Learning at Party 1/2 - is this good or LAG?

My best guess here is that SB was aggressively playing a club flush draw and Button was calling away with something like A4o. Your play is ultra-aggressive here, but I like it.

Re: From Losing to Breakeven... How do I now turn profitable?

Hand 1 ... I think your play here is good most of the time. Unless you have a read on the guy, if he's betting into the pre-flop raiser, I'm thinking he has a dominant hand. If you were going to...

He only raised the turn, which I think is the right play. You need to raise the turn to make him prove he has the flush.

I think he's raising for value on the turn. If...

Re: QQ with two pairs on the board

I think he won the pot, too, seeing the complete action. On the river, he might be able to fold a flush with a bet, and he might get a king-high caller or a guy with a 7 betting on 3 pair, but that...

Re: Poorly Played Pocket Sixes

If he has a flush (most likely), you can improve to a full house or the straight flush, so I've got you at about 11%, which is not worth a call unless you think he'll give you a ton of action on the...

Re: AQo against a tight aggressive

Barring the results, I think you played the odds ok post-flop.

But it's a great illustration of why you can happily lay down AQ pre-flop against a player with high raising standards. It's...

ATo preflop -- your move?

How do you play ATo preflop?

Will you play it from EP, and if you do, do you open-raise? How about mid and late positions when you are opening, and when you are behind 1 or more limpers? Do you...

Re: MicroLimit Personal Progress...All Posters Post

It's been a pretty wild ride since I last posted progress. I went on another really bad run, then bounced back just as hard. Now I'm up to 4713 hands in PT with a BB/100 of 4.31. I've also...

Re: what does \"outplay\" mean?

Re: home game NL hand

Limping pf is marginal here. I think you could play these from CO or button in a soft game where you can count on getting paid off well when you hit, but it's too hard to play this early when you...

Re: The ace killers

After a fix to my EV scanner, I can now match the result of A9 with the 9 of the same suit as one of the aces in AA as being the absolute dog-worst hand to have against a pair of aces.
