  1. Thx Answer20. It was a multiple table online tournement.
  2. Answer 20 thanks for explaining some of that to me.
  3. I'm an admitted beginner so I have a lot to learn about expanding my range of starters and betting strategy. So I hope I'm not coming off appearing totally stupid here. But someone please explain to me how this was a wise move, besides that the gamble paid off. This was in an online tournement. 9 players at the table. Was the 10th hand into the tourney. I was in middle position Villians in late. Stacks Hero(me): 1135 Villian1: 465 Villian2: 940 Pre-flop: All but 3 of us fold. I end up in early position with KdQd. I bet 120. Villian1 calls. Vilian2 goes all in 940. I call as I have stack to spare and good starter. Villian 1 goes all in 465. Show cards: Hero KdQd. Villian 1 Jh10s. Villian 2 Jd10d Flop: Jc 6s 10c Turn: 5c River: Qs Okay I got beat on the flop. But here is my question. Going all in for both these guys with J 10? I realize a J 10 is a playable hand. But wasn't this very risky for both of them and they just got lucky on the flop. These guys and another person at the table were trying to explain to me that I just saw a PRO move and I should be in awe of what they did. I don't see playing J 10s. I don't see going all in like they did. I watched them to a similar thing with a starter of Kd2d in early position. What is the lesson here. Should I be looking to expand my range of cards and bet way over the top? I mean this example seems beyond aggresive to me. Or am I showing how much of a beginner I am and I played this hand wrong.
  4. Okay maybe I'm a donk for just replying to a thread that's over a year old in its origin. But I have to say. I'm a beginner just starting to enter the next level. This was a donk move that not even a beginner (like me) would try from stupidity. This is what I have learned from this post. 1) When players make donk moves and get lucky they find it hard to admit they got lucky and instead think it was skill. 2) Only play in the same room with the same people all the time. Thus eventually you get to know their patterns and you can tell how they will play every preflop they get. - I'm being sarcastic, one yes you need to know your opponent and how they play. In my mind however, this lacks of challange and any real skill. Why not play in other locations with others you don't know and see how well you do then. 3) Might as well try a donk move once ina while, they seem to pay off. I'm sorry but you can't convince me that you were just damn lucky here, it wasn't a good insightful decision.
