Re: $11 PS - Should I have pushed against this PF raise?

With the aggression that villain has shown, and my stack vs. his stack and the blinds as high as they are? I would push this PF every time.

With half his chips in the middle if you don't bet the...

Re: Question for Pokerstars regulars

Well, the one time this year it happened to me, the other player was a very respectable player and the blinds were very high. We agreed to the chop and then agreed that the winner would send 2nd...

Re: Question for Pokerstars regulars

I have had it happen to me once in over 2k SNGs this year. I cannot tell you if I'm the exception or the rule as far as frequency goes, but I suspect it is just really rare for others to ask for a...

Re: Variance In Turbos

Yes, such swings are normal.

Even if you are a winning player expect to have losing sets of 500 SNGs (though hopefully not too often). Losing money over 150 SNGs is not uncommon at all. On the...

Re: My Pacific Report

Nice tournament recap there... except that it was Sidekick that raised to 1200 with the button and not Mac! He was gone at that point! /images/graemlins/wink.gif

I'd like to say it was skill, but...

Re: Ring Game or SnG

is this 4-table number? How long does a standard SnG last?

In a few 10+1 limit SnGs I played, I did OK and more important, the game looks familiar to regular ring game. Today I watched...

Interesting thread. I've played a fair amount of SNG's with good success but just for fun. Now you guys got me wanting to try 4-tabling them again.

I know that it is difficult to...

Re: Ring Game or SnG

I used to do ring games and now I do SNGs almost exclusively.

Limit ring games and NL SNGs use a different skillset IMO. I have known people who can do both, some that can do one but not the...

Re: Poker Stars FPP poker chips?

Thanks for the response.

Did you actually order them or just know someone/heard that is what they are? Just curious if you ordered them and were unhappy with them.

Poker Stars FPP poker chips?

I'm sure it has come up before, but after doing several different searches over the last year I can find only cursory mention of this product from the Poker Stars FPP store.

Re: Do I call this ridiculous bet?

I fold here.

I'm not calling off my entire stack here with AKo at level 3 of a tournament preflop absent some read that says that Button is a complete LAG and will push any two here.

I would...

Re: KQs 3-handed - call this raise?

If button is Loose/Passive and SB is a LAG, then I fold this hand in a heartbeat.

I would expect Button to call the raise from SB and that SB probably has a marginal hand that you are ahead of,...

Re: Late JJ Hand

Given the blinds and stacks sizes, I can't see any reasonable scenario where I don't push here.

Seems fairly standard. Anyone that disagrees with the push, I would be very interested in reading...

Re: 20+2 Party SnG Leak?

If I'm reading your post correctly and you have only 129 SNGs at the 10s? Then I would like to give you a cautious word of warning.

If these are your first SNGs, then it is quite probable that you...

Re: Losing streak, or have I gotten worse?

The reason you are getting all the snarky responses is because this topic comes up so frequently that the older posters often get tired of seeing it. As you appear new to the forum I will cut you...

Re: JJ near bubble - badly misplayed?

With the blinds this high I would push preflop. The only thing that would really concern me with a preflop push is the fact that UTG limped for 200 with a stack of 305. This play by UTG seems to...

Re: maximum/good roi/itm for super cheap sngs?

What you can expect is a lot of fluctuation if you are new to SNGs most likely.

If you could have the following:
ITM: 45%
ROI: 40%
You would be doing very well indeed, I don't care how weak...

Re: Would a pot size bet have a +EV with this Q10s?

Re: Automatic call...my buddy disagrees

I think this one is entirely table dependent. If the table has been even moderately loose I think you have to go ahead and push in and pray. You are getting good odds here. Should you luck out and...

Re: Would a pot size bet have a +EV with this Q10s?

I think your all-in bet is a very poor play. The only person that calls this bet is going to have you beat. Then you will have to hit your draw and chances are you won't make your draw.

If there...

Preflop: I prefer to reraise here to try and buy the button, but I don't have any real problems with just calling.

Re: Very tricky AK hand early in SNG

When posting hands it is often helpful to include the buyin as well. It often helps for early play evaluation when no real reads are available.
