  3. I have been on a disastrous run lately and would like some advice from more experienced players whom, no doubt, have been in this situation many many times...In January I started playing 100Nl holdem and over about 4-5 months I beat the game for about 25 buys in's, nothing too exceptional granted, but I felt my tightish steady ABC approach worked well and I was winning about $400-700 per month. I Then decided to start some 200Nl and see if I could adapt to the more aggressive style, and I did. I steadily won about $2800 over about 20,000 hands...again nothing special i know, but again I'm be
  4. 400NL - Partypoker 6 playersHero has not been sat for long and has no reads on the villian.Hero just lost reasonable sized pot and didn't reload, stack sizes areHero $226 MPVillian $ 402 COHero is MP and holds K K Hero raises to $14, Villian calls $14, button calls $14, SB folds, BB folds.Flop: 9 9 7 Hero bets: $34, villian calls $34, button folds.Turn: 5 Hero?
  5. Partypoker 400NL - 4 playersThis is only my 12th hand and villain has just sat down to play his first hand, so no reads.Hero $408 - SBVillian $400 - BBHero holds K Folds to hero, hero raises to $14, BB calls $10.flop: 7 9 2 Hero bets $22, BB raises to $65, hero calls $43Turn: 5 Hero? Is check raise optimum here or do we prefer a lead?
  6. I think this is AK a lot here and if you raise he has trouble folding on the turn. He'll probably check river and then you take it to value town. However if he pushes to a turn raise you can safely fold imo to TT or AA.
  7. Three weeks...lol, I wish, its been about one year from $0.10-0.25 to $2-4NL. To be honest I have been taking a shot at 400NL and running below expectation in terms of results...meh whatever. The standard at 400NL does have trickier players for sure but on Party you still get lots of huge donks with stats like 60/11/1.2, I'm sure it 's a whole different story on fulltit.
  8. this is how it went down, I pushed fully confident that this guy probably would not call an UTG raise with J9 and that he probably was holding Q 10 or 77 maybe even 88 if he's really bad, however he snapped called and flipped QQ.tough to put him on that hand with a smooth call but thats the third set over set since I moved up to 400NL and it's likely I'll be moving back down soon if my downswing continues.Out of interest, how much do regular 200NL players make in a month over 5000 or so hands???
  9. 400NL Holdem Partypoker 5 playersHero is UTG and just showed a turn raise bluff with 66 on 5 8 4 9 board for $150 so my image is questionable. Villian has stats of 38.7/2.5/1.5 and is fishy for these stakes.Hero $558.59Villian $403.23SB $334.50Hero holds 10 10 Hero raises to $12, villian calls $12, button folds, SB calls 410, BB folds.Flop Q 10 7 Hero bets $25, villian calls $25, SB foldsTurn 8 Hero bets $71, villian raises to $146, hero?????
  10. Partypoker $2/4 NL Holdem 6 playersHero $412 UTGVillian $ 402 BBButton $ 298Hero is losing and therefore questioning normal decisions my image would be very average and possibly weak as I am not getting many hands and not hitting flops at all.Hero holds A K Hero raises to $14, Button calls $14, SB folds, BB calls $10.Flop: 6 6 K BB Checks, Hero bets $30, button calls $30, BB Calls $30Turn: 10 BB Checks, Hero bets $80, button folds, BB Calls $80River: 7 BB ChecksHero? are we value betting here, my read is that he possibly holds middle pair or KQ,KJ suited kind of hand.Thoughts please
  11. Partypoker $0.50/1 Blinds - 6 Max NL HoldemHero is playing 22/18/3.7 normal aggro game, I have only played 17 hands with villian and he won a decent sized hand calling Q6 offsuit oop to a CO $12 re-raise and turning a straight. I doubt he has any reads or any poker strategy to be honest.Hero: SB $106.00Villian: BB $132.55Hero Holds A J Folds to hero, hero raises to $4, Villian in BB calls $3.Flop: J 9 8 Hero bets $6, villian callsTurn: A Hero bets $16, villian calls $16River: 3 Hero?
  12. I play on party but would like to join a site with decent rakeback for obvious reasonsand I heard that the games on 888 are pretty soft, can anyone who plays there offer some insight? I normally play $.50-1 & $1-2 NL.Thanks..
  13. I don't like the play preflop or on the flop, your turn raise is fine but the fact he called you out of position with 1 card to come indicates strength either in a big draw or made hand already.The river is ugly, the flush gets there, a wheel gets there (if he's that bad) and your two pair can be dominated, i fold here every time!
  14. yeah I'm shoving, if he has a set then too bad but you can't fold for 100BB here at 25NL.
