  1. I don't know you from Adam, but the point of posting hands in a poker forum is to improve your poker game. You seem to be saying, 'lol how can people criticize my play, this guy is a total moron!' If you can't handle/don't want criticism of your hands, I don't think posting them in a public forum is the right direction to go in. I doubt many, if any, people in this forum are 'giving you an ass kicking' out of personal reasons. I've looked over 2 or 3 hands that you've posted, and they are all very bad fundamentally (which is worse than making a bad read or making a bad play due to tilt), a
  2. Also, if Villain turns up with like AA/KK here, I don't really *hate* it. Its hard to tell what table dynamics and game flow is like in these situations. I would be fine 3-bet calling OOP against someone that I felt was 4-bet bluffing me if I had a big hand. As for hero, I don't see the point in betting this flop. If he has you beat, he's never folding. If you have him beat, he's rarely betting (unless he's an aggrotard, but then you're inducing a bluff instead of value towning yourself)By the way, when I read the title I had a witty retort, and I was going to not say it, but after readin
  3. Without any reads, I would struggle to find a hand that I feel we're getting 3 streets of value from (that we're actually, you know, ahead of). My standard, admittedly nitty line, is to check the turn, and then get an additional street of value on the river. (also, I'm smart enough to hit my jack on the river and avoid crappy spots like this)I don't completely hate the fold. Donks usually wake up on the turn, and one of the straight draws got there. However, it is 10NL, and I don't think I could beat 10NL because I'd never be folding a pair, let alone an overpair, to anyone there.One weird
  4. Nice adjustment on the AQ v KQ hand, Cobalt. It was eerily similar to a hand we played (same positions and everything) last week, where you ended up with 2nd pair and I had top pair. I knew I should have folded the river, but I'm a donk and just went with my standard line. I got you back later, though.
  5. I understand nothing about poker, so any advice is welcomed.That had nothing to do with what I was saying, though.I was saying that in rush poker, people spaz out to smaller raises on a much larger scale than at just a normal ring game. I'd like to hear more about ranges and post-flop edge, though.
  6. Yea, this is an interesting side effect. There's obviously a lot of bad play at normal 50, 100 and 200NL. But, for some unknown reason, in rush people do completely insane things. I think, perhaps, the quick pace of the game intensifies the tilt factor for some players. It's moving so fast that you don't realize that you are losing your mind. Example: I hit a set over set against a reg. Over the next 5 minutes he 3-bet jammed over my normal opens with QTos, 98s, and 47os. I have like 5000 hands on the guy and have never seen him tilt before. Also see a lot more really insane bluffing
  7. Yea, that was me. That was really well played by the JJ guy. UTG opens, UTG+1 3bets, he CCs in MP, UTG 4-bets, UTG+1 shoves, well, they both have AK, I'm a huge favourite!But, to your other part - the swongs in rush are the worst. You can be having a great session and in the last 15 minutes dump off 3 buy ins without even noticing. Or, you can do what I prefer to do, and start out stuck 10 buy ins, go into hyper tilt mode (which works surprisingly well in rush), and get it all back quickly. Definitely helps raise your pain threshold.small edit: I would say the swongs are mostly due to t
  8. So that IS you playing rush. Saw the name a lot lately (but now at 100NL, so I guess you've moved up?), was wondering if it was you. You're not all that much fun to play against, but its somewhat offset by the whole 'reset dynamics after each hand' set up. As for Iron Man - yea, Rush, especially if you can play during rush happy hour, is really a great way to keep your status. If its a day where I'm not really in to playing or the tables aren't good, 30mins during happy hour for the 200 points, and then save my heavy grinding days for when I'm focused.14th month in a row of Iron level, hol
  9. that was pretty awesome. He looked good, too. Maybe Sid and Flower can trade positions for a game next year, let MAF get beat up for an hour while Sid lets in softies... ;D
  10. okay, so full disclosure, I had never heard of this eklund guy until draft day when i was using twitter to follow FA, and someone mentioned him and at that point I followed him because I knew nothing about him. Then I noticed a lot of anger on the intergoogle towards him so I started looking into it. How is this guy popular? He's a liar and a hack... He steals from people. I'm pretty sure he's touched someone (maybe only himself) in the no-no spot), shouldn't he be in jail?I only bring this up because of the tanguay stuff, now he's going to detroit, e(something) just kind of sad. Feel ba
  11. seems like a lot of people agree with Bob Clarke... more dumb people roaming the streets than I ever imagined...http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=668903
  12. sorry, was Talbot's recovery time 3-4 months, so only 1-2 of the season? Too many numbers in my head:)
  13. who do you have on the 2nd line for the first 3-4 months of the season, Kennedy?
  14. Petr Sykora isn't coming back to the Penguins. He says coach Dan Bylsma -- a former teammate -- is jealous of him, so he's been treated badly. "When the coach does not want Sykora, nothing can be done," he told AHA Daily, translated by LetsGoPens.com. Sykora said when he and Bylsma were teammates, Bylsma "drifted around" as a fourth-liner, while he, a younger player, was on the top line. "Now the roles got reversed, and from the first moment I had a feeling that he let me 'eat it.' "
