Re: Curtains Hand 1

How does Curtains have 5BB? I thought the blinds were 50/100.

What GrekeHaus said is basically correct. People who pass up +.3% edges late in a tournament are very bad poker players in my book.

Re: Bad strategy or good?

Why do you people keep saying he shouldn't raise AJs from the button? Especially at the 50/100 blind level. Because of the limper? I'd probably open push here.

The original poster specifically mentioned that we were talking about raises in general, not just pushes.

I think you guys underestimate the strength of suited hands in SnG's.

Re: Question about hand ranges & equity (calling vs. raising, yada yad

I dunno, Lori. The difference between being suited and unsuited is pretty important, even in NL. The difference is comparable to TT vs. 77 (not vs. each other, of course).

Question about hand ranges & equity (calling vs. raising, yada yada)

Now, we know (at least, I hope we all know), that certain hands have different equity depending on whether or not you're facing a raise, or raising. As an example, KQs vs ATo from the button.

It's not a down streak. It's not bad beats. It's a statistical problem. The following numbers are close. Not exact. But close.
