  1. im check-calling against aggressive players and bet-folding passive players. checking this river to a passive player is a mistake since he will check behind with anything you beat and bet with anything you cant.
  2. 3 bet is fine, he could EASILY have AxKc. i bet-call river for any brick, and check-call a dangerous card.
  3. tough spot. what could he be raising the flop with? flush draw? straight draw? pair? all of these hands beat you by the river. i think im folding the turn and cursing under my breath. PS: pm me your screen name... ill PM you mine.
  4. last 24o on table out of bankroll of 1800 = no bankroll management.
  5. yes, SB will almost always call 2 cold. he has VPIP 88 and foldflop 11%, foldturn 12%. this guy was giving it away. (i have the foldflop and foldturn stats on my HUD). PS: QQ is a very good guess.Edit: the other thing is that it costs me the same if the TAG has a monster. if he caps the flop i can be 99% percent sure im drawing to 2 outs. if i c/r the flop, he can smoothcall, and then i have to lead out on turn. either way, i lose 4 small bets.
  6. so i can 3 bet. i think button is going to cap with a bunch of hands that a) miss this flop or B) are made before the flop and are scared of the K. I also think he is going to raise the flop with just about all of them. SB is pretty much donating to the winner either way, so i really just need to find out what the button has. if he caps the flop, i check-fold the turn. feel free to criticize, this hand is pretty much the edge of where my aggression takes me.
  7. button is a TAG, not too tricky, and a poster here. SB is an absolute idiot, the reason this table existed, and the reason every tag on party was on the waitlist for this game. he is 88-10-0.95 through 150 hands, and likely has trouble breathing without assistance.

  8. Evaluate it based on hands and what it does to each.You're equally as well off calling if he has an OESD, if he's going to put in a bluff at the river (which seems likely, if he's the type to bet the OESD ont he turn). You win the same. How often does he have a stronger seven? How often does he fold it? Not often. The value of this is minimal when weighted by how likely it is. Anything better than a seven basically always shows their hand down. If he doesnt fold a strong seven, you're equally well off. If he does, then you're much better off. Either way - it's not huge. If he has over
  9. im on the opposite side (finally). after a month and a bit of being checkraised by gutshots on the turn, underpairs calling down to hit sets on the river, runner runner quads beating my top set on flop, normally rational players calling 3bets preflop with ludicrous cards and making hands every time like they knew what was coming, and 0-12 stretches with KK, im finally running hot. W$SD 58% baby.
  10. not too much literature out there. basically HU limit is about reacting to your opponents perception of you. it should basically be a constant tug of war between him thinking you are reckless and him thinking you are passive. you need to run him over till he realizes what you are doing, then react to that and tone it down. i.e. if hes folding or calling to much bet more, and if hes betting and raising too much tone it down quickly, betting for value only.
  11. actuary, i called i just wanted to see if i was way out of line. Party Poker 3/6 Hold'em (6 max, 6 handed) FTR converter on zerodivide.cxPreflop: Hero is SB with [4s], [5s].

  12. this was my line of thinking. UTG will almost never fold for 1 bet, and BB is pretty bad as well. the flop was the real question though, since i only found 4 outs (i really am reluctant to count the backdoor spades as a full out).
  13. all villains are loose and passive except cut off who is loose-aggressive and tricky postflop.

  14. i let my good friend do it. i cant tell you his name, but lets call him p. tracker. no, no wait. thats too obvious. poker t, thats what we'll call him...
  15. trollv.,n. 1. [From the Usenet group alt.folklore.urban] Toutter a posting on Usenet designed to attract predictableresponses or flames; or, the post itself. Derives from the phrase"trolling for newbies" which in turn comes from mainstream"trolling", a style of fishing in which one trails bait through alikely spot hoping for a bite. The well-constructed troll is a postthat induces lots of newbies and flamers to make themselves lookeven more clueless than they already do, while subtly conveying tothe more savvy and experienced that it is in fact a deliberatetroll. If you don't fall for the joke
  16. everyone needs to stfu. kowboy, stfu. stfu, stfu, stfu. there. i flamed. deal with it.
  17. 3 betting here sucks. You aren't getting any action from a hand that you beat.a) you get flush draw semi bluffs and pocket pairs<JJ to call and B) you get naked overs like AK AQ to fold their equity.
  18. this hand is totally read dependent. this is a horrible call down with a passive opponent and an easy 3 bet with an agressive opponent.
  19. Can't we cap for value here?Given our strong draw and a certain call from MP ?It's close, no?i cap too.
  20. I'll disagree, cautiously. :-) i know you kick ass in SH.Aren't we risking too much to let MP2 outdraw us?We are ahead sometimes.It's really a matter of how often MP will outdraw us when we woulda beaten the SB, vs, how often MP2 pays us off on the river when we hit.It's a big pot, I lean towards improving our chances, without going thru the math. In a small pot, I don't raise the turn.well, obviously im biased because i see that we get 3bet. if you had submitted this hand without the turn action after we must act, i may be more inclined to agree. given the way the hand played out, i thin
  21. depending on SB stats, i might 3bet pf. other than that looks good.edit: i semi bluff turns with big draws all the time, but your fold equity here vs small blind is about 0 and you are probably behind, so flatcall to keep MP2 in is a better line, since you want to keep him around if you hit one of what is likely 15 outs.
  22. man, its 1-2. this guy could have no idea whats going on. 3bet turn, bet/call river. easy.
