Re: um, QQ fold preflop?

first hand of a party super you'd have to tie my hands behind my back to keep me from pushing, and then id probably push with my nose.

Re: Gosh... AQ against a donk. Party 30+3 w/ 250 entrants

I will call with lots of hands from the BB. A10s, 67s, 108s, J10s and sometimes AA/KK. I'm pretty much always reraising QQ/JJ/AK/AQ and often but not always reraising with AA/KK especially if they...

not reraising preflop with these stacks is fairly criminal.

Re: I\'m a major LAG

If you are 100% sure that he has AA/KK then you are limping purely for set value which is ok as its less than 10%. It is also possible to not go broke on an all low flop. Just play carefully, like...

Re: Splitting the MTT Forum

Ok, some random points.

1. I think there is more than enough traffic to support a split.

2. There is definitely a difference in play between a 3 dollar tourney and a sunday special. However...

Re: Sometimes being a LAG gets you in trouble.

no. but your understanding of the gap concept is quite flawed. there are reasons not to play this hand here and adanthar highlighted them fairly well. the gap concept is not one of them.

Re: Bellagio 5diamond Hand

lol, when was the last time you played with a 300 BB stack? It allows for profitably playing a lot more hands if you're good, and thinking you can profitable play a lot more hands if you arent.

Re: 88 in EP. (Stars $20 Deepstack) Oh, and i\'m a calling station.

Preflop.
Raising and calling are both fine. I'd dislike the raise if players behind you had you covered, but they dont, so im down.

Flop.
I like. Sometimes I'll bet here, a normal cb but also...

I like how you played it. There are so many things that can go wrong if you raise with the action in front of you that I hate building a big pot. If Joe picks a spot where 3 people have shown...

Re: iMsoLucky0 confuses me.

Its a pretty dry flop. There are no real draws that the BB can have. You have to worry about him hitting an overcard sure, but thats a small price to pay in exchange for controling the size of the...

Re: iMsoLucky0 confuses me.

given the recent history between you two, I'd check the flop here with the plan of calling a turn bet and getting to showdown cheap. If he follows through on the river you have to strongly consider...
