Re: Big tournament

It would be interesting to know what percent of each player's buy-in is funded from his personal roll and what percent is staked.

Re: Preflop Steal Gone Awry?

A guy raises preflop and gets three callers. My thought is you picked a less than an ideal time to make a play with trash.

Re: The Double Min Raise - Results

"I'd raise $300 back to encourage a bad call."

Pretty close. I actually re-raised him $250. And he made the bad call. A jack fell on the turn. He pushed. I felt like puking. At that point, I...

The Double Min Raise

Live full ring 5/10 NL; I've got about $1000; opponent has around $1300; we're on the second orbit of the button since I sat down and this is the first pot my opponent has played.

Re: 25/50 hand against a live one

After he called your re-raise on the turn, I can't understand moving all in on the river.

I know you believe he's a donk, but why risk so much if his check is a trap inducing you to do what you...

Re: 5/10 River bluff

You're trying to sell BB you were helped by the river ace (and that your most likely holding is AT). The problem is that many aggessive players in a short handed game will raise preflop with AT. If...

Re: There is a crazy player on perma-tilt that keeps on winning

Saw a guy play this way at the Borgata a couple of months ago on a $5/$10 NL table. He increased his stack from about $1500 to over $6000 in an hour and a half, broke 3 or 4 guys, and had everyone...

Re: Is this close to a string raise?

I don't see it. You're making a forward motion with both hands, you never went back to your stack, AND you declared a raise. What did he think you had in the "other" hand if it wasn't chips to put...

I'm usually able to make decisions and act pretty quickly. But I agonized over this one. This guy was SOOOO loose. I was very tempted to push all in and put him to the test. Ultimately, I decided...

Re: Folding Nut Flush to Turned SF? 5/10

You told him you really liked your hand by raising on the flop.

If he's holding the SF, isn't the best play for him to check the turn inducing you to put more money in the middle and then pushing?...

Re: completing the small blind

With 4 limpers, you're getting 11 to 1 to complete (assuming a check from BB). Almost any two cards are worth seeing a flop with those odds.

Just yesterday a guy scolded me for completing from SB...

Re: Live hand for review

Villian's flop play, and especially his turn play, tells me he really likes his hand and he's not going away. I hate your river re-raise.

But, since you did re-raise, you can't possibly muck at...

Re: What\'s a good response when someone asks you what cards you had?

My response is generally a curt one. Something like "it doesn't matter, the hand is over" sends the signal that I don't appreciate being put in a positon to answer a question that should never have...

Re: Is No-Limit worth switching to at B&M?

True story.

This hand came up about an hour into my very first NL session:

4 guys tried limping in ahead but I was dealt pocket 10s on the button, so I raised. One of the blinds and all the...
