Do you have any idea how -EV this is? I mean, its one thing to critique a hand, but to reveal a move? Wow....Thanks.

uhh, he already posted an entire mini step 5 that with aggressive plays similar to this. Curtains obviously isn't too worried about posting these things.

Well Im not going to fold. I dont want to move allin for 10x the bb with 75s, its almost surely -ev once its headsup. I hate to raise to like 1200 and get blown off of a hand that has serious value. So that leaves limping. Of course I limp with strong hands too so you cant just raise everytime I limp.


btw Ive come up with another rule called - beware the third limp. Meaning if someone limps twice and gets moved allin on . The third time they limp there is a much higher liklihood they have a monster. Basically each successive limp the chances are higher. I sometimes check in the BB with quite strong hands after the third limp.

Tough call with the duece but I honestly don't think many players are folding the 8 here. I like this play and use it a decent amount myself.

NH Curtains... reading that post reminds me once again how bad I suck at poker. (Good thing most of my opponents suck more.) Thanks alot. [img]/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

And now I have to purge that move from my memory for as long as I'm playing the 22s.

Because the guy played stupidly preflop, you would have never done what he did.
