Re: AKs 5-10 6max -- Is This ALWAYS Wrong?

[ QUOTE ]

Gotta raise flop or turn. You are ONLY behind one reasonable hand (KJ) and there are so many other he could have, with 2-15 outs to beat you. Have to charge the draws, worrying about...

Re: Learn Stud Before Playing Hi/Low?

I am speaking as someone who doesn't play higher than 3/6 on-line.

After being successful at Omaha/8, I followed some fish over to Stud/8 and I seem to be reasonably successful mainly because I...

Re: Aces in deck; never seen this analysis?

In his excellent poker tome The Making of a Poker Player, Matt Matros cites "the bunching factor" as a reason why you should open-raise with more hands in a short-handed game compared to when you are...

Re: Are You Better or Worse Than Average in KK vs AA Confrontations

I actually think a distribution of EV in KK vs AA situations vs. player skill might actually be multi-modal (at least for limit).

A bad player will probably bowl through with kings and might even...

Are You Better or Worse Than Average in KK vs AA Confrontations

Primarily thinking in terms of limit, but it is also applicable to no-limit.

Do you think that you lose more, less, or about the same as the typical player when you have KK and your opponent turns...

Re: Not reraising with big pair as a variance

Just curious. How many of you reraise with something other than a strong hand for the same reason?
