  1. he's not polarized. i can see him doing this with a queen and even a hand like 99. even still with that price you have to call since every single draw except 97 missed. plus when you bet $65 on the turn you're basically asking him to try and steal this on the river. short of hitting a hand you honestly couldn't have asked for a better turn and river.
  2. happy to hear it all James. you're a great dudegl in 12
  3. if i feel they can fold i shove turn toootherwise i'll call
  4. I would think this all is to your advantage, because you're good at poker and not just a hudbot.
  5. he could have like KdQd, just barreling with AK, and AA is always a possibilityI call a river shove though, tough for him to have a better hand and a lot of better one pairs (KQ/AK) will check on the river looking to induce on the missed diamonds
  6. lol I felt drained being down $10 in a ton of SNGs after 4 hoursafter 11 hours with strangers, Jesus Christ. torture.yeah easy river fold Jon, but maybe that was around the 8th hour and at that point you were zombified.
  7. very nice dudenow stop bullshitting me about those peanut butter bars costing too much money.
  8. played my first poker game tonight since April, 4 hours, -$10.solid bleed me dry lossrate.overall happy with how I played. we only played crapshoot SNGs, which sort of sucks, but I'm going to try and get this as a regular bi-weekly, maybe monthly, event and eventually broaden it to cash games. goes without saying that everyone sucks.I did lose to a chick HU. even though she got hit with the deck (who gets aces three times HU, like on the last hand when I hit top pair on the K72 flop) it's still embarrassing.
  9. just 3-bet imo, way harder to deal with out of position than you flatting
  10. James speaks from experience. I saw him play almost the identical hand against fighter, as James had 44 or 55 and fighter had the A3
  11. not holding breath.would be nice though; it'd pay for a new computer. so I could game. because I lost poker. assholes.
  12. being in position is like being the pitcher in baseball. you just have a tremendous advantage by virtue of your role. you could take two equivalent baseball players, identical in overall talent, athleticism, concentration, and the one who is pitcher will win over 50% of their contests just because of the bias in pitching. it's the same thing in poker. just accept that when you're out of position, you cannot play as well as you would in position; and when you're in position, you have an advantage that you absolutely don't want to pass up unless you absolutely have to. like fighter, I've ne
  13. play deepthen you can setmine 88 :)and fold when you hit bottom set.
  14. I don't fold my kj with no straights and flushes possible...yeah he can have us drawing dead but, I don't know, it's 10nl and people do weird things, especially aggro regs (he may even be thinking that we'll bet the obvious scare card). we're about 45% to a range exclusively of aa/77/qj/jt/kj/aj. when it's that close, I just go with it. I'd consider raising the flop, even in position, just because his c/bet % is kind of low, so he's more likely to have something when he bets the flop. it is possible obviously that he's not a c/bet monkey and he bets dependent on texture and opponent.
  15. you have to bet that flopif he raises, it's a math problem at that point and I'm too lazy to do it.
  16. Who knows what people limp OTB? Q6s, hell, they can limp almost anything in a live game with the pot already straddled and juiced. I don't know; if you c/r on the turn, prepared to get it in, it's marginal and I suspect when you're called you lose more often than you win. It's one of those hands that I don't think is worth stressing over.
  17. Eddie you mean flatting the river w/86? No way...easy, easy ship. If you read him as 33 or 6x before, then you're only losing to the very unlikely J8. Hopefully I just misread your post, because doing anything but raising that river is so criminal that whoever flats should be outlawed from playing poker anywhere on the Continental US (you can still go to Eastern Europe, because they're all slowrollers and aggrotards). I think you played it fine earlier if you want to c/r the flop. it's the type of hand that, no matter what you do, you're going to inevitably rep exactly what you have, 6x+.
  18. I don't know if it's possible. my winrate at 25nl deep would've been like 483248284bb/100 had I not even bothered bluffing past the turntough to just dump a BI that gets looked up by one perrrrrrrrr
