Limit and No-Limit

Interested in your thoughts . . .
I've been playing micro limit hold 'em for about a year (off-n-on). I play 10-handed, and do not play tourneys. Lately, I've played in a couple NL freerolls to...

GSIH: \"outs to more outs\"?

I'm reading GSIH. On page 79 (discussing Limit), he writes that "'outs to more outs' are worth something". Does anybody know how to quantify this?

I think about this when I have a 3-flush -- if...

Playing at VERY LOOSE tables

I normally play .25/.50 at PokerRoom and .50/1.00 at Party. Usually, around 35-40% of the table see a flop. Tonight, I played a table that maintained a 60% VPIP the whole time. I was loving it,...

Re: moving up IMPOSSIBLE

I played at .25/.50 for like 4 months, and for all of the thousands of hands in that time frame, all I had to show for it was a profit of one thin dime (literally). Then all the sudden, things...

Re: What\'s the Game of the Future?

Hold 'em in general, but Limit Hold 'em specifically. Hundreds of thousands (maybe millions?) already know this game only.

(I say Limit because there are complexities to it that the typical...

Re: AKo from button

I'd say bet the turn. With a low flop like this, it probably missed most people. Otherwise, maybe MP1 has Q8 and is betting top pair. Even K8 or A8 still doesn't beat your TPTK. No point in...

Re: Aggressive vs Passive options (3 hands)

Hand 1 -- seemed fine. I think 87s may not be strong enough to give others too much incentive to see a showdown. It's a fine line, but if you're ahead of an opponent, but not by much, making the...

Re: Hmm, AKo at a tight table

Checkraise sounds good here. It's possible he's got KQ, but you take your chances. His VPIP is tight, but not so tight that he will not play other hands besides KQ. At this point, since you have...

Re: Results

I saw the post too late not to see the results, so take it for what it's worth . . .

With J high on the flop against your overpair, I'd raise the flop. Dare him to call. Depending on his...

Re: $200 in PP, now what?

I think you need more patience, both with the hands you play, and with your hot vs cold sessions.

BTW -- I started with a lot of money too (relative to the micro limits), but playing the low...

OESD -- Bet out? Or Check and Call?

You flop an open-end straight draw. The pot odds would justify a call if someone bet. Should you just bet right away? Or check with the hope of catching a free card, and calling if necessary? I'm...

Post-flop odds

What are the proper odds to consider post-flop, when thinking about betting or calling? I know the basic odds for making your hand on the turn or river. But isn't it true that if the turn doesn't...

Need thoughts on which poker room?

I have about $250 available to me. I currently play .25/.50 at UB (this limit is where I want to stay until I'm solid there). I use PT, but the problem with UB is that I can't import my hands until...

This was deception, that\'s for sure

I've been playing online for awhile. Until this hand, I've taken my losses (and I've had my share) as the cost of doing business. But my first reaction to this was that I was snookered. What do...

Re: One more PokerTracker question

This may be a dumb question (if it is, just say so), but are you sure that there are any players who fit the attributes you are filtering?
