  1. I'll bite, what the heck does tp/mm stand for?
  2. however, since it's been posted, I will opine....Smash, stick to poker strategy.I see you're point, but ...I'm sorry, what was your point?She may be odd, but most of us have a vision of this woman since she was 13, so this is as close as it gets to legal obsessing over an underage woman...Did I say that out loud....
  3. Been there done that, have yet to see it in live play though. My read said it was unlikely he had those hands. If that had been the case, I wouldn't be posting. I've already complained about that. In general, this was a very passive game with no real aggression (other than me when I was position enabled).
  4. Two table small stakes MTT. Down to 9 players (out of 14). I'm in the big blind with about 2k in chips. Blinds are 100/200. I have AQs. First two players fold, and then players 3 through SB limp. I figure AQ is worth raising in this spot (questionable?).I raise to 800. First limper re-raises all-in, for about 4k. He's got me covered. Everyone else folds. I do some quick math, there's about 2600 in the pot and I have about another 1200 meaning I could get about 3-1 on my money. I don't know what he has, but limping early I don't put him on any of the danger hands, i.e. AA, KK or QQ. So I
  5. DN's a great announcer. Gives the right perspective without going over the top with a lot of extra info that he would take into consideration if he were playing.He's a natural...
  6. From the blog announcement, it looks like DN & PM are going separate ways. Can't say I'm unhappy, I just couldn't get excited about PM.Put yourself in Daniel's shoes? If you wanted to promote an online site, where would you go?I personally think Daniel's going to pass and concentrate on getting Stacked on every console in the world, who knows it might eventually become a gaming site.If I had to pick a site though it's tough since I think all the good ones have more than enough recognizable spokespersons. Ultimatebet? Nah, it's got Hellmuth and Annie Duke, don't see Daniel in the same shot
  7. Live two table tournament, seven handed at our table, blinds are 50/100. I have about 1600 in chips. Button is a relatively big stack (2500 chips+).I'm dealt AKs. I noticed UTG quickly go for chips but just limps in (she's a very passive player, has never raised and is extremely shy.) Button raises to 300.I'm concerned about being out of position post flop, so I re-raise 500 to create some fold equity in case I bet anything that flops. UTG sheepishly says,"well, I either have to fold or go all-in". She goes all-in (for an additional 275). Button goes all-in and I call (the way I figure it's
  8. And there were at least two callers ahead of me making it a four way pot. I'll call the min raise in the big blind even with marginal hands to take a look at the flop. I'm pretty disciplined to lay down unless it really hits. JTs in that position I felt to be an almost automatic call. It's a leak in my game, but I turn it off if I need to.
  9. Setting:Small live tournament, about 18 players. After the break, so everybody's bought the add-on. About three hands into the round, blinds are 75/150 or something like that and I'm in the big blind.UTG raises minimum or some other slighly larger amount, a couple of callers and I have JTs. I call.Flop comes Q9x making me four to my flush and oesd. UTG goes all in about 4500 chips, i have him covered with about 1500 to spare. Everyone folds around to me and I call. Bettor has AA and I'm "favorite". Turn is A, i'm no longer favorite but still have a zillion outs, river is blank and I lose.My
  10. I've been playing a lot since about a year ago. I'm terrible, but a quick learner and have improved. I have a LOT to learn in terms of decision making and mathematical prowess, but I think I have good instincts (that can only be honed further). (I'm 38). I've just started a new job that is a lot more hours than normal, but the upside is reminiscent of the dotcom era. I'm hoping to play a live game/tourney per week (locally they're anywhere from $20 to $100 buy-ins) and improve enough so when my company gets bought out, I'll be the Paul Phillips of the 200x decade.In the meantime however, it's
  11. Setting: Local home game 18 player tourney, low buy in and freezeout. T2500 starting chipstack.About 4/5 levels in, blinds are 50/100 or 100/200, I don't remember which. I had won a big hand earlier, relatively speaking and was a large stack at the table, but not too distanced from the rest.I get AKs either in late position or on the button. Early caller, couple of more callers, I raise 3-4xBB. Blinds folded, but I don't think anybody else did. Flop comes AK7, two diamonds. I bet 500 into an approximately 700 chip pot. First position raises 1000, folded around to me, almost immediately I rais
  12. Negreanu Open this evening...Only 11 players, I figure I'm a lock for the final table, Ha! (Note with only 11 players, we're playing 5 on this table). I call a big raise with KQs, flop comes K99 checked to me, I bet, I get raised, Figure he had AK, fold. (third of my stack pissed away in one hand).JJ on the button, raise 5x the blind, blinds are 10/20 (how ridiculous is this...)Flop is 5-2-3 uncoordinated. SB bets 20 into 240 pot, I raise to 200, he pushes I call (bad move). He turns over 55 for what becomes a full boat. Down to 230 chips...A couple of hands later, I've got KQo, raise into m
  13. This is an incredibly educational post. I'm with most people on this, thinking a push is the way to go, but reading Smash's insight and the OP's thought process make me view it differently. If you're confident you can outplay your opponents elsewhere with the best of it, this is a solid play. Graduate level thinking here. I'm still in elementary school.
  14. I don't three bet on the flop since I've already bet out and he's raised me making me guess he's got a jack.Once my Ace hits giving me the boat, i'm on the accelarator again.Maybe I'm a little conservative and paranoid about cracked aces.
  15. I'm not dead yet...Yes you are, you're not fooling anyone!I'm feeling better...Also....It's just a flesh wound...
