Default Re: Too tight?

Just for fun (and for those too lazy to use poker stove) here are some stats:

Ah2h vs 3c6c 57%/43%

I knew he was pushing with a lot of hands but no way I could tell he had a 2 so let's say he had a 5.

Ah5h vs 3c6c 61%/39%

Now what if I have a K intead of the 6?

Ah2h vs Kc3c 59%/40%
Ah5h vs Kc3c 63%/37%

How about two cards higher than mine?

Ah8h vs 6c3c 63%/37%
AhKh vs 6c3c 63%/37%

Okay, now what about pot odds. I was getting close to 2:1 pot odds to call. I knew he was pushing any two and the only senerio he is kicking my ass in is if he has a pocket pair higher than my six (80/20).

So, I'm getting 2:1 pot odds and close to 2:1 odds. I'm also big daddy chip leader who has been pushing the board around. Easy call.

I hope this is a joke post, but since you only have 20 posts, I suspect it isn't. This is a really awful play and nobody should make it (except my opponents). If you really are trying to justify your actions with numbers, you can't completely forget about the BB picking up a hand. You aren't a big chipleader, and if you lost this pot you managed to make it 4 equal stacks on the bubble.

Well, to be fair I ran the numbers in eastbay's magic 8-ball thingy, and it says "fold." The only time that this is a call is...well...never. Even if he's pushing with any two, it's ICM neutral and not even worth it.

Not interested in the hand, but I want to say that I dig your avatar. House is one of my favorite TV shows to watch. The most cynical (sp?) character ever on TV. He's the best. Carry on.
