Re: Bad Players = Hard to Beat????

This isn't the case. There are a couple of things going on. One, he just happened to hit hands. Everyone, good and bad, will experience that. It can happen over a fairly lengthy period of time...

This flop felt like a way ahead way/behind when he led into me. And I definitely don't want to give him an excuse to fold if he's behind.

Re: The Linear Equality Fallacy

Your sample size over that time period is woefully indaequate to begin to conclude anything about winrates. In any event, if what the OP is talking about is playing less than optimally after a...

Re: The worst bad beat I have ever heard of in my life.

Not sure if this is a true story, but this is a good example of someone hitting a zero-outer.

Re: True vs Mack the Fork II

Given the action, once he checks the turn, I put you on JJ/AK as the most likely holdings, as I think you'd pitch 99 (if you'd even cap that here) on the flop, and would probably not take this line...

Re: QQ vs. A high flop heads - up on the flop

I realize there are some draws he could have, but given the pot size I'm fairly content just to call down, betting if check to probably.

Re: Flip the Cards Over

I think that is the point. Here is a scenario where all of BB's outs are totally clean, and there are no horrible redraws against him. There is basically no scenario better than this. A lot of the...

Re: 70k check-up

Yeah, that could well be another 10% higher easily. Give us examples of hands you are raising and hands you are folding when it is folded to you on the button.

Re: How do we play low PP (22-66) UTG?

Depends on the table. If we're getting 5 or more to every flop, often without a raise, for sure limp. If its a little tighter or more aggressive, but people go way too far postflop, you can also...

Re: 70k check-up

Waaaaaaay too tight. You ought to be playing at least 16% of your hands, and probably more. You should really be playing more hands in later position, and way more in the BB. Take W Derange's...

Re: OESD

I'd fold. The 8's are good most of the time, but the K is going to lead to a chop a lot, and also lead to losing to a boat sometimes. Weak-tight players here have a lot of this board. You may even...

Re: Call or fold? Is this a close decision?

So do we have a bdflush draw, or regular? I assume bdoor, otherwise it really isn't close. If MP1 had bet I'd make the call. However, MP1 checking is awfully suspicious (or maybe he has AJ or TT...

Re: I Don\'t Know Enough to be a Winning Player (QUIZ)

Nate the Great (or was it CDC, I mix them up) sort of had one in the famous "You play too tight" post. About 20 hands or so, each of which was then discussed. No points, however.

Re: I Don\'t Know Enough to be a Winning Player (QUIZ)

Yeah his scoring system is pretty messed up as is, but I don't see how folding the nut flush for one bet can be worth anything other than -10 under this system.

KJo, multiway pot, scary board

5/10 Eurobet

From what I recall the table is playing pretty loose, and I believe in particular the BB is a flop peeler who folds a lot on the turn (but that doesn't really matter in this hand). ...

First, let me say that I only have a vague understanding of the ideas you are mentioning.

That said, those graphs are mostly for fun. You get keep on eye on how you're running, show off you're...

Re: Cold calling preflop

Yes, but that isn't the only factor. For example, say you have a hand that is a 60/40 dog HU. Say the BB entering would drop your equity to 35%. Your equity has dropped but now you have 35% 3-way...

Re: Another hand with Padawon\'s Master

I hope everyone can see that we have an open-raise in the CO, followed by a 3-bet by the button. This is much different than raising UTG and having to call 2 back to you.

I think the hand looks...

Re: 88 SB, overpair

So are you actally suggesting I should c/r the entire table on this flop?

As far as turn, what cards are you donk-betting?

I was thinking about a 2, 4, 7, 8, 9, or T, probably no ...

Re: 88 SB, overpair

I think just calling the flop is a no-brainer. I have the best hand at that point a large majority of the time. However, I will have the best hand at showdown much, much less. My equity is low and...

The table is full of loose-passive fish, plus a few who are either somewhat too tight/passive, or sort of slightly loose/aggressive. Plus this woman who won't shut up about every...

Re: Quotation from \"Small Stakes Hold\'em\"

They are presumably referring to the internet, where many 2+2ers play 4-8 tables, some play 10. In fact, I assume that virtually all online players at 2+2 probably play more than 1 table at a time.

Re: The Protected Pot Effect: A Study from 2/4
