  1. Please do NOT check/min. re-raise. Even though you won the hand, it screams to every player that you are a total donkey. Not to be a dick or anything.....Seriously though. If I were your opponent, I would not respect your continuation bets after this hand. You have given a precedent that when you hit big, you don't continuation bet.Don't get caught up in the results of this hand. You raised OOP with a marginal hand that got called by two players that had you stomped. You out flopped them. Wahoo!
  2. I have played quite a bit of HU myself. I would enjoy seeing a few hands, but like you said most will be read based. IMO HU can be played effectively with soooo many styles that it would be impossible to critique someone else's play.
  3. Let's not be rediculous. KJ five handed is not trash, and we are playing against a loose player that may have very well raised with a worse hand.
  4. Bad ending:My friend laid it down. To be honest, my buddy's BR is a bit shriveled so I understand, but I would be willing to venture that we have the best hand 65% of the time given this action and we were getting 1.5-1 on our money. Gotta call IMO.Nice input fellas. A couple last thoughts:If he had a hand like AK or AQ and thought it was good, wouldn't he at most value bet this river? Personally, if I held one pair on this board and the river checked to me, I wouldn't even bet.One of the main problems here is that we were in really uncharted territory with this villain. Villain had playe
  5. My friend checked here because he put him on a flush draw, with maybe a pair to go with it. He figured he missed, so the only way to get money in the pot was to allow him to hang himself.Remember, we only have a little over $70 left so his all-in for $130ish is academic. We were basically having to call about twice the pot.I honestly believe he could hold two clubs, A 10x, or a hand we beat. Trips would have taken control of the hand and so would any straight without the A .
  6. Nice lay down IMO. Even if we are ahead, he may have many outs. If we are behind, we may be drawing to runner runner boat.The only hands that jump out at me that he might make this play with that we beat are PP 10s and lower (that didn't trip), but would he have limped with those in the CO? Most good players will likely raise with a PP that late in position if it has folded around.
  7. My first short handed post.My friend is the hero in this hand. We have been discussing this hand that occurred on FTP. 5 handed .50/1.00 SB $80.50 Hero (BB) $92.20 (Kh, Jd) UTG $93.00 CO $58.50 Villain (Button) $148.70 Pre-flop: UTG calls, CO folds, Villain raises $1.50 to $2.50, SB folds, Hero calls, UTG calls. Flop (pot=$8 )[Qc 8c Jc] Hero bets $5, UTG fold, Villain calls. Turn (pot=$18 )[Kd] Hero bets $11, Villain calls. River (pot=$40 )[6h] Hero checks, Villain bets $130.20 and is all-in, Hero.....? What do you guys think? His read of the villain is a player who loves to make a tiny raises
  8. My read leans towards AcXx and this is a hail mary bluff. I think he paired the flop or the turn with the Ac as his kicker, though he could have played AcXc this way. I think there is no way a set makes this play. Scary hand.
  9. nh. If we don't anticipate the action behind us, can we play this hand for set value? I think so.

  11. I hate our min. bet on the flop. A true donk play. Our opponent sniffed out our weakness and really played it perfectly. If he were to hold 33, 34, or 99, would he have played it any different? He c/r the flop, bet the turn strong, and went all-in on the river. I think we made a pretty poor call, but it looks genius since you posted the results. Congrats on winning the hand. If you want non results-based analysis please post results later.
  12. Any reads on why the SB continues his donk sized bet into a raiser? Any reads on the BB?I think readless, we push here. We are getting pretty awesome money odds. There are a lot of holdings that the SB or BB hold here that we could stomp. AK with the K , or any set may make this play. I could see top two making this play. Let's remember the BB raised the flop, into a pre-flop raiser. That is an unlikely move for someone on a draw. If anyone flushed out besides us, my money is on the SB, but I still feel this is a "good enough" situation for us to get our money in.I am guessing we lost
  13. This is definitely a tough decision. I think when dealing with a poor player (as he as clearly displayed he is) it is at least as important, if not more important, to play the odds of your hand versus your read on him.I don't have a strong opinion one way or the other here. The fact that he would be willing to make a call on a lead out with two overs is really not a case for check raising. After all, we are a pretty strong favorite and don't mind his money in the pot.I like the c/r. But like you said, it has to be bigger. If we are check raising, the goal has to be to pick up the pot righ
  14. This is exactly why NOT to push. Scott got it right. Push and we only get called if we are behind. We must check this turn to gain any added value of our hand. The likelihood of him checking behind us is not too high. By calling our flop raise this villain is clearly looking for ways to win the hand other than just hitting one of his two overs. If he missed this turn, then he may feel inclined to make a play for the pot.
