  1. But Acid's right, isn't he? If the old man play 80% of his hands, then his range is wide. If I CRAI I'm surely getting my money in good a great deal of the time.
  2. I'm very interested in the outcome of this hand. Even if he did end up calling, shoving is a really advanced play. I don't think I have the stones to make that move. Generally, I'd whine about suckouts and whatnots and fold.
  3. Yeah, I folded saying something like "KK no good eh? That ace is so sick." He turned up 96 of hearts saying something about a flush and a straight draw. In hindsight, should I have bet defensively on the turn? He has such a wide range of hands, and he doesn't necessarily have to have an ace in that spot. I didn't think he had AK or AQ since he limped behind preflop and then just called my overbet from the small blind.Sometimes I think I should play short stacked so I can just open-shove the flop with JJ as an overpair.
  4. I ended up checking, thinking that if the Ace hit him, he'd surely bet. I checked. Long pause, he asked "what happened? He checked?" then he threw out a $100 bill into the pot.Hero folds?
  5. $1-2 No Limit at Peppermill Casino in Reno. Hero has $300, Villain (button) has $300. Villain is an old man with a baseball cap that covers his eyes. I haven't seen him play here before. So far, over the past 1.5 hours, he seems to play 80% of his hands and chases a lot of draws. I saw him call an all-in to chase a flush draw against a massive overbet and he got there on the river.I have J J in the Small Blind.MP1 limps, MP2 limps, Button limps. I raise to $20.MP1 calls, Button calls. FLOP: 5 7 2 POT: $64I bet $45. MP1 folds. Button calls.TURN: A Hero?
  6. I think this is an overpair a lot of the time. The only possible hand we can beat that plays like this is KJ or you're tying with AJ. Against a TAG, I fold this without a read.Edit: this could also be two overs with a flush draw, but we're still behind that hand.
  7. This COULD be set/2pr, but by his stats, he's a donk and it's such a small bet in relation to the pot that folding is never an option in this exact spot. Raising is bad because the only thing that calls you is something that beats JJ.Call. If he spiked on you with K10, then so be it.
  8. You're even money, slightly ahead of any overpair. Put it this way, if you had AA, you'd shovel, right? You're almost exactly even money against AsAd. If he had the Ah, you're slightly behind. This is a shove every time.
  9. Agreed, this is an insta-call. You have to call a $9 all-in bet closing the action for a $51 pot and you have 4 outs to the nuts. Worst case scenario is that he has JJ, and you have only 16% to win.
  10. HAHAHA Ok this guy is okay in my book.I may never look at pencils the same again.
  11. Yeah i guess I'm kinda nitty when it comes to playing the blinds. KJs is borderline for me. KQ is where I start to feel comfortable. It's just that I've lost a lot of money second-guessing my opponents who are playing from the button. I underestimate the button's hand strength and I end up being dominated with my KJ. Sometimes these button villains wake up with a hand.
  12. I don't mind giving up my small blind most of the time because they're so small compared to the relation of the pots in no-limit hold-em. Might be a leak, but I don't defend too liberally because I hate to play out of position. If I have a strong read that I may have the best hand, I'll play back at him. Like if this guy has attempted a blind steal a great deal of the time I've played with him for like 2 hours, then I'll play back. Also, in short handed limit hold'em, I definitely protect my blinds. In this situation, for me, folding > reraising > calling. Once you get re-reraised,
  13. The thing is, why give a donk an opportunity to beat you in marginal situations? Why not just fold this in the sb and take his money in situations you know you can outplay him on.
  14. I like it. I assume you were going to check-raise the turn? I also assume you checked the river to induce a bluff?
  15. No WAY can you check this flop. You don't want to give 78, or some kind of club combination a free card in this situation. Checking is like slow-playing in this spot and your one pair isn't strong enough to slowplay. The best time to induce a bluff, in my opinion, is when you're like 99% positive you have the best hand and 99% positive that your opponent will bluff at it. Otherwise you're missing value by checking. For example, a couple months back, I had AK and the flop came Kxx with two hearts. I bet, the villain instantly called like he was on a draw. Turn was a blank, I bet, he call
  16. Agreed, I always have a default view of my opponent as good. If it's live though, I start stereotyping a little. Like, young dudes with baseball caps feel like they can play super tricky aggressive. Quiet businessmen types tend to be tight passive.With the situation at hand, we have the stats to base our move on, i.e. "Villain is 66/17 over 55 hands, seems rather spazzy so far"
  17. Here's the problem though. It's irrelevant how we would have played it had we been in villain's shoes; it's only important what the villain was really thinking. If villain was Canute, Acid_knight, etc... any one of us... it might be a clearer fold. But against a terrible player that plays kinda spewish, it's a tougher decision.
  18. I think it's a close one here and I don't think you lose much or win much in the long run either way.Best case scenario is that he's bluffing with a naked flush draw which you have crushed.Likely scenario is that he has something like AJ, so you're drawing live to a K, a Q, or a club, and you're about even money.Worst case scenario is that he has a set of deuces or AQ, where you'd be drawing to a club only.If I felt like gambling I'd call, that's all it comes down to in my opinion.
  19. I think you're right - preflop he's semi-aggro. I'm still learning the stats stuff too.
  20. Well, if I'm right about the stats, I wouldn't call him a loose maniac. I'd call him a loose passive player. He's a true calling station. A loose maniac would have the same kind of stats, but with a super high aggression factor. Someone who frequently is in there raising and betting with a wide range. This guy is a passive donk who you better watch out if he puts in a raise.
  21. Yes, you are telegraphing your hand a little. You will get called by the kind of hands you want to call anyway: AQ, AJ. By minimum raising you're also allowing any other hand that has a chance to beat you to have the correct odds to call you.Also, as someone said, you can later mix it up by checkraising here with a flush draw in this exact spot.
  22. Ah, I just learned this, so someone please correct me if I'm wrong. It's: % of hands played / % of total hands played coming in raising / Aggression factor.Any Agression factor less than 1.5 is generally a pretty passive player and will not likely be bluffing when he puts in a raise. So in this specific example, the guy plays 46% of the hands he's dealt, he raises 18% of his preflop hands, and he's pretty much a check/calling player.
  23. Fold preflop. Playing suited connectors out of position is -EV.I don't think the rest of the hand was too bad. On the river, the bet is so small compared to the pot size, I would call too. He could have like A8 with the ace of spades.
  24. A check-raise of 2.5x is basically a minimum raise. Minimum raises allow draws to get there cheaply, and it doesn't protect your hand. Check-raising the minimum is basically calling out of position.I think you have to call the raise on the river... he can easily be doing this with KQs, AQ or AJ. Maybe even A10 if he's terrible.
