  1. This will almost certainly be final mock until the draft next weekend.1. Miami Dolphins - Jake Long, OT, MichiganWhen talking about the team's starters, Tony Sparano was able to mention one for every position but right tackle, leaving Jake Long as a major possibility. Furthermore, the Dolphins have already entered contract negotiations with Long. Granted, they'll likely do the same with Chris Long and Vernon Gholston, but the fact that they picked Long first could show a higher interest in him.2. St. Louis Rams - Glenn Dorsey, DT, Louisiana StateThis pick depends on what the Rams plan to do wi
  2. This is what almost induced me to call the river.
  3. You mean just check from the BB and play for set value?That's the response I got on a few other forums. I disagreed because I felt that villain did not have 99+ and if that was the case, then worst case scenario is that I'm in a race if he calls my shove in the first place. I also think playing for set value OOP is kind of weak against that such a shortish stack. If I check/shove a pair of eights, I'm only called if I'm beat or against a monster draw. Check/folding the best hand is just really bad. It was best to get it in while ahead. This was probably the right course of action. Definitely a

  5. If a non-spade, non-straight card hits on the river (queens of hearts, for example), do you call a shove or move in on the river if checked to?

  7. EP min-raises are very suspicious.I'd just call and see a flop.
  8. I can tell. I'm not trying to offend you, but most of your advice was pretty bad.You have to go into pushbot mode in the later stages of turbos. In the end game, every stack is short except for the biggest of stacks. Most of my preflop shoves were totally standard given the stack sizes and the blinds + ante.When pushbotting in turbos, it doesn't matter what cards you have. It matters what situation you're in. If you're first into the pot, you can shove more hands than you could if somebody else was in the pot before you.You have to get lucky to win tournaments. That's known. So long as you pla
  9. Calling the re-raise is an atrocious decision.Committing 1/4 of your stack against a preflop re-raiser is not smart at all. What happens when you whiff on the flop and he shoves? He could easily have a hand like yours or even weaker and you can't do a thing about. AK is a hand that wants to see all 5 cards if possible. Get it in there.You're in a $2 donkament and people re-raise with really strange stuff. Never fold AK here. Ever.
  10. Awful donk bet on the flop. Check and let villain bluff into you on the flop. Call his bet and re-evaluate turn.
  11. Bet more on flop. Shove turn.Double up and fist pump.
  12. I'm curious to see what leaks I might have in my game. It's difficult to get an unbiased view of your game sometimes. So, it's nice to show how I played to others who can give me some outside perspectives.This is a PXF HH of a $12/45 NLHE turbo I won on Poker Stars. You have to register at PXF to see it, but registration is free.http://www.pokerxfactor.com/HA103293/SUB-1/11095Thanks to those who take the time to watch it.
  13. Well, I did lay my hand down.Villain showed QQ.I went on to get a seat in the tourney anyway.
  14. Did you happen to read the post above yours? About how calling is not a good idea?I like my raise. It could stand to be smaller, yes. Probably should have made it 140 or 160. But a bigger than normal raise is way better than a minimum raise.
