Re: 1/2 stud hi game on Stars - too aggressive?

When I sais that I suspectedJJin the hole,I didn't mean to infer that the hand was played poorly,because it wasn't.I probably would have slowed down on either 6th or 7th,myself,although I think...

Re: 1/2 stud hi game on Stars - too aggressive?

I don' think that you were rivered.It doesn't make sense that he would have started off with J,3 in the hole.He must have had J,J.You said you weren't worried about him having Q's,but some players...

Re: lo8 simple question

A call is better on the turn since the duece has come.It's most likely that you have no scoop chances ,& there are no threatening looking draws available to beat you on the high side.Let the player...

Re: 10/20 limit - totally lost in the Wynn mixed game

Preflop:I would not raise.This is a pretty good hand multi-way,but you have to hit the flop very well to have the best of it heads up against another raiser.

Flop:Just call with a weak high high &...

Re: Two quotes from two books, concerning high hands in shorthanded pots

Re: Another AAA hand at 2-4

This is about as good of a place for a slow play as you will ever see in Omaha.There's very little chance of a free card hurting you.Somebody with KK could hit another K to beat you,but that's about...

Re: Stud Hi .5/1: did I go too far here?

Jeez,I hate hands like this.You have to just suck along with a feeling of impending doom.I think I would have called it down,too & then hated myself.

Re: Rolled vs paired ace door

Fifth street is not the time for deception.If seat 6 sees that you are not afraid of possible A's up & figures out that you may have 3 Q's & folds his flush/straight draw,fine.Make them pay to draw...
