Re: Troublesome hand from a home game

Your format was fine -- clear and readable. The only thing I would suggest is to restate the entire board at the turn and river.

Note that the K didn't help anyone. If anyone is ahead of you,...

Re: Strong Start, wicked twist

I don't think it is really all that clear. Your check behind on the turn is a serious show of weakness, and he might have decided that he could take it away with his 8/images/graemlins/spade.gif...

Re: Set in unraised $100 NL pot - call $200?

[ QUOTE ]
Zag, your pricing of various hands is extremely interesting to me. Here you price a set at about 100BB. I remember in another post somewhere you priced TPGK at about 40BB; do I remember...

Re: Set in unraised $100 NL pot - call $200?

Since your starting stack was over 200 BBs, you should fold. If you (or villain) had only 100 BBs, I might consider a call, and at, say, 75 BBs it would be an easy call. However, a losing set...

Re: Hand I witnessed - Do you call this river?

This is almost the right analysis (assuming that there is zero chance that SB would do this without at least an ace). The $5.375 represents hero's share of the existing pot, which was $10.75 when SB...

Re: Flush odds

I wonder why the earlier poster is so unlucky... /images/graemlins/smile.gif

Anyway, it is a good question. There are a few things [I started with "two" but kept thinking of more] to think about...

Re: more river aggression on trips?

Hmmmm, no comment on the flop call, yet. You have two outs (45-to-2 longshot), you are seeing pot odds of just 4-to-1 and maximum implied odds of 95-to-1. However, you have to discount the implied...

Re: Overplayed my flushdraw and position?

The play on the flop was pretty standard, but I'd fold to the re-raise since he probably put you on the hand you had and didn't want you to draw out on him. You don't have the odds to...

Re: Butcherd turn play- AKA- \"I\'m a pansy\"

Preflop is questionable but not terrible. The river you played correctly. It is on the flop, where you were painfully loose, and the turn, where you were painfully weak, that your mistakes...

Re: Should I push this flop?

This is a reasonable place to take a stand, which you had already decided you are going to have to do soon or be run over completely. Your pair and OESD is almost even with AA.

Re: Combo hand, TPGK + Flush Draw against a maniac question.

Against a tight player for whom that bet means a set or better, you should fold. But against a maniac it's an easy push, as you did. Lots of maniacs will make this play as a semi-bluff with the...

Re: A nice draw (played badly?)

You are HOPING you have a little worse than a coin flip, in which case you barely have odds to draw: http://twodimes.net/h/?z=996304

If you never folded here, it wouldn't be much of a leak. I just don't think it's something to worry about.

Re: standard?

I don't argue with any of it, though with a really strong read hero might have made a huge laydown on the end, but it seems that he was pot-committed by then. (Entering the river, the pot was 40...

Re: push on the river?

Note that your stacks are only 25 BBs. This means you are in a very short-stacked game, so play no drawing hands, and no crap, because the implied odds just aren't there. (In a big stack game,...

Re: Facing a river all-in with low FH. NL100 - 6max

Re: Balance between cheap cards and pot building with marginal hands

You're right, this is a better example.
