  2. I am 4 tabling omaha hi-lo, with usually one of them being a pot limit game. If you want to torture your brain, you should give it a try. This is the equivalent of 48 hold'em hands to keep track of....Fortunatly, I am using the best LCD monitor there is. It is an IBM T210, whith a native resolution of 2048x1560. I bought it 3 years ago, but they don't make it anymore. It was too expensive ($8000 when they came out) and they stopped making it a couple of years ago. You can find some on Ebay from time to time for a lot less money now. With it I can see all the table without any window overlappin
  3. In a BM room near Chicago.NL hold'em, $5/$10I am on the button with 6 7 and about $550 left. 9 handed and no taker. I raised it to $30, with a pretty tight player on the BB. SB folded, BB called.FLOP : 8 T J BB checked and I am looking at my small flush with a possible inside str8 flush. I bet the pot, enough to chase him out if he has a big club in his hand, and enough to make me think twice if he comes over the top.TURN: 9 So now I got a 6 cards str8 flush with the idiot end.He goes all-in and I am (obviously) very worried about the Q . He had me covered, but I cannot lay my hand down

    Capt Drew,I agree with the way you are looking at it, and I actually raise with that hand from the BB about 75% of the time. In that case, i didn't because I only saw that guy go in a pot once before, with Ks and getting cracked by an A3. He played it the same pre-flop, limping in, checking till the river and calling a ~180 chips bet at the river. Raising from the BB would not have give me a lot more information without seeing the texture of the flop. If he calls, well, he calls and I will have to fish for more info post flop EVEN if I don't hit my set. If he folds I get 75 chips back in my st

    It was still early in the tournament and against only one taker i didn't wanted to see the flop for cheap as that guy had been quite tight before (accross only maybe 20 hands...). Anyway, I was going to approach it as a 'no set no bet' unless the flop came rags (smaller than my Js). Obviously the flop was a mixed bag. I got my set, but a possible flush was there, with 2 cards to come. I didn't put him on a 'made flush' on the flop, as nobody fast play those with an all-in. If he had the nut flush, he would have put a small bet hoping to get me in for more chips, and with a smaller flush he wou

  7. People seemed to be interested on how to get from $50 to $1000 in six months or so. I thought showing how to get from 20 to 8000 in 45 minutes or so could actually be interesting to some of you Frankly the only real interesting part is when, instead of telling myself that any 2 cards could win when I was down to 170, under the blind (50/100), I showed some restrain and waited for a better opportunity, even if it meant going down to only 20 chips... It worked that time, and that is the biggest lesson I got out of that particular session.FYB
  8. This is a SNG I played a couple of days ago. I did cut some hands at the beginning that were not really interesting, but most of the SNG is there. It is quite long, but if you look from :#Game No : 1450367588 and on that is the most interesting part...FYB#Game No : 1450287098 ***** Hand History for Game 1450287098 *****NL Hold'em $10 Buy-in + $1 Entry Fee Trny:8754570 Level:1 Blinds(10/15) - Monday, January 17, 13:18:34 EDT 2005Table Table 17610 (Real Money)Seat 6 is the buttonTotal number of players : 10 Seat 10: fyb2000 ( $800 )Seat 4: Buckgrunt ( $800 )Seat 1: tomacro ( $800 )Seat 2: lu
