Default How to REALLY take advantage of metagame

This guy and me have a long history. He probably has an edge over me, but it's really hard to tell. Long story short, he bluffs a ton and when people are running bad he runs over them.

My image, on the other hand, is very good. I rarely showdown a bad hand and fold a lot postflop. I bluff very little.

This one was fun. I wasn't going to show my hand, but right after he folded he said "KK" so I couldn't resist. How'd I do? Should I have showed?


After the hand he said "wow" "nh". Anyhows if you're reading this jakz no hard feelings [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Jakz and Uneducated are two of the biggest winners on Absolute (IMO Uneducated plays like garbage, but somehow he keeps on winning). You can probably find better lineups to play in.

Yeah, one of the fish just left the table after a nice 30 hand hitnrun. I left 5 hands later. I know I have a very small edge if any at all.

Edit: check your PM

What kind of dumb site lets you decide not to call the preflop 3-bet and still see a flop?

I wish I had the magic powers to get people to lay-down like that.

If it was me bluffing on that board, they'd have the ace or call down with K5s.

This is called bluffing with the best hand.

Maybe not, but I doubt I had the best hand.
