Re: Is a computer virus alive?

Re: AJJ4 hand. To aggressive?

I like how you played this hand. I would never fold second set in limit, and I absolutely would have three-bet that flop. After the button caps, I would slow down, but I certainly would not fold the...

Re: Flexus rivers the nut str8..ends up with a sixth of the pot

I think completing the small blind with those rags is pretty thin, even with that many callers. After that, there is nothing you can do.

Re: PLO8 noob -- how\'s my line?

I like your play up to the river, and I definitely wouldn't bet smaller on the turn. I don't think that he will fold anything (other than a busted draw) on the river that he thought was worth...

Re: $1k turn bluff

If the PF raiser was in LP, it would depend on whether he was the type to call me down with AA or AK. If the PF raiser in LP was a habitual folder, I would still make the play.

Re: $1k turn bluff

I make plays like this a fair amount. If I get called or raised, I give up. Plays like this help you get paid off.
