Re: AJo in BB late in Stars $22 v. UTG minraise from chipleader

[ QUOTE ]
I would check-fold the flop. I wouldn't re-raise pre-flop either. I expect to be behind Villain's range and am hoping to suck out on the flop. When I don't, I'm done.

Re: Bubble Play with KK

First things, folding obviously is not an option and calling is not going to happen here (potentially 3 way pot out of position, yuck). So, the question becomes how much to raise in my view.

Re: tricky TPNK hand 15/30

I'd fold this river, but I can understand a call given that you're getting more than 3:1 on your money. I have a suspicion that maniac flopped two pair with A5 or AT or a set or something (maniacs...

Re: Trip J\'s weak kicker

I call, and here's my reasoning. If he had JT+ I'd expect him to raise preflop (although you do peg him as conservative do you think he would do this?). Then on the flop when he checks I reduce the...

Re: What\'s my move here?

Barring some sort of read on MP2 that makes me fear AA or KK I'm pushing this. He opened raised the pot from MP3, that range is fairly wide depending on your read and QQ looks good to me. The...

Re: $10 MTT Party Poker 1st Hand - Right Call?

Now that I think about it you guys are right. I've seen all in calls with J3s for goodness sakes early on in a Party MTT. I think the next time I get AA in the first round, especially if it's in LP...

Re: Wasting Aces...

You didn't waste your Aces.

You took down a pot of t140, 7xBB, to increase your stack 13%.

That's fine ... much better than losing your whole stack. Believe me, every day I see...

Re: $10 MTT Party Poker 1st Hand - Right Call?

If you had folded KK in this spot it would have been criminal. Tough break, move on.

The real donk in this hand is the villian, he makes this move and only KK and QQ will probably call him. The...

Re: How not to play when it\'s heads ups (complete HU-HH. Long)

Hand 18:

If your read is that he's trying to buy the pot when he is way behind to your ace, why raise all in? Why not just call and see if he will give you all his chips and end it right there. ...

Re: Should my chips be in here?

This is my reasoning for only calling the river as well. In addition to the A /images/graemlins/heart.gif the 9 /images/graemlins/heart.gif gives villan a straight flush. The K is on the 3rd nut...

Re: KQs in button, multiway pot to river

I raise this flop. You flopped a monster draw, with 15 outs to nearly the nuts. You are a nice favorite with 2 cards to come, particularly since this pot is multiway. This pot is good sized by...

Re: and in this corner.....weighing 265 pounds..Folding Equity!!!!!

At first I thought a call was in order but after reading your thought process, I like the raise to ~300. With the weak players behind you it's entirely possible they will call 300 cold. Even if...

Re: The Calibre Of Ace-King...? (Suited or Unsuited)

If you could somehow totally discount these hands then assuming there are blinds and antes in the pot I'd guess your pot odds would justify a call in pretty much 100% of cases.

I do not know how...

Re: Flop middle pair (treys) in battle of blinds facing a pot overbet

Warning: Donk advice most likely follows.

Re: Overplayed JJ? FullTilt 16K ($24+2)

Without any reads I don't know that you can give him a "standard" AA/KK line. I agree with Ansky, we are in good shape against his likely range of hands and a call is in order.

Re: Strategy question on getting deep

Not sure of blind sizes (around 300/600 or so here???) and if that's the case I like the popular "call and play some poker" line. If the flop misses his overs, you can take the pot. If the flop is...

Re: JJ, early-mid tourney Party 20+2

I don't think he's sitting on AA or KK (and maybe QQ) as he just smooth called your reraise preflop and with his stack I'd think a preflop push would be more likely. I'd put him on AJ-AK, 77+. I'd...
