Re: $22: Folding Queens on moderate flop?

I think I call here too. Ofen you will be shown hands like TT-JJ, A9, or a flush draw.

That fold by the SB is definately something to report, but who knows how PP can prove anything...maybe the...

Re: Could I have done something differently?

[ QUOTE ]
Yes, check-fold the flop.

I can't think of another way to play this hand.

If he pushes the flop and raises to 300 preflop I still believe he loses the hand. People at the 20s,10s, and 5s are so bad. There is NO WAY in the world this guy is folding top pair...

Re: ($22) Checkaroo Bonzai

On the button, raise this to 300-400. This might get the BB to fold his hand. Check behind on the flop as 11t stated is a good play to avoid a check-raise, and definately bet the turn if checked...

Re: QQ 55$ PF all in decision

I do not play at the 55's (I'm at the 11's), so if this is a completely wrong opinion, I apologize in advance.

With no reads and MP2 pushing, I would put his range to TT-AA, AKs-AQs, AK, and maybe...

Re: Deepish KQ Hand

I agree with Dave D's post. I find KQ a 'yucky' hand as well, especially to raise with UTG. Especially in EP, I almost always fold this hand because of the uncertainty that goes along with playing...

There's 1445 in the pot when its folded to you. I push here.

If you raise to 2400, your committing essentially half of your stack to the pot, so I would think a push gains more FE against a...

fold it preflop. Limping from the button is fine, calling a raise is not. I push the flop - no free cards.

Re: 2 all ins with 3 people left
