  2. What you're saying is exactly right. At first I thought my pair was good on the flop. However, on the turn I started worrying about 2 pair, set or even the straight. I was upset because I thought that if he did hit 2 pair or a straight on the turn, then I let him get there with my passive play.The reason I kept calling was the off chance that he did just hit the T or maybe the J on the turn, and that my Ace was good... or he was overplaying KK or QQ.
  3. I don't normally post responses in here, just because I don't consider myself a good enough player to offer advice to others on here, but...I agree with JJGoldy on the topic of big betting the river with a big hand in that situation. First time I saw this play was Hevad Khan in the wsop and it really got me thinking about it after seeing how effective it was for him in that tourney. It was uncanny to see how many people misread his pot sized bet on the river as weakness when he was really holding the nuts.Sooner or later, this play will become another standard play, like blind stealing or bl
  4. I put him on a missed draw here and bet what I thought an ace high draw would call, so I bet 100.As it turned out he did call and showed me a Q high flush draw and I took it.Main thing I was worried about on this hand was whether or not I should have been more worried about the 9 or the straight. At no point in this hand did I feel he had me beat or hit his draw, so I was curious to see if maybe I should have been a bit more cautious.
  5. On the turn is where I realised how badly I played this hand. My thought process at the start of the hand was that he was a short stack and if I hit I would let him bluff me all his chips and that I could withstand a beat.On the river, as HighwayStar said, I had to call because the 3 didn't change anything... as much as I didn't want to.It turned out that he had KQ and I doubled him up.Only good thing that came from the hand was it woke me up to start paying more attention and I ended up winning the tourney.

  8. Thanks for the input guys, much appreciated.I didn't believe he would bet that much with a hand that was beating me, I had him on a busted draw and called. He showed QT.

  12. Im a brisbanite aswell The treasury isn't worth playing at all though. It's ridiculous. The only game they play is 5/10 LHE. But thats not the worst of it. They don't charge by time, they charge everyone a 'participation fee'. $1 every hand, just to play the hand. Add rake's to that and they are taking a ridiculous cut. Honestly the treasury isn't even worth looking at.Besides that, I was recently in melbourne and had the pleasure of playing the crown. Great poker room, great structure, i loved it.
  13. My only question is, why are we smooth calling preflop with AK in hand 1?AK plays better heads up then in a multi-way pot, so unless you were 'slow playing' AK to try and get more chips in the middle (which the all-in accomplished) whats the point in calling?I re-raise to about 400 give or take a little, to try and get it heads up with the raiser, then when the all-in comes back at you, you're getting 3.5 to 1 to call.And it's true, the range that is all in here, in a low limit SNG is much broader than most of you have stated.
  14. I just had a 4th place finish, which I'm not over the moon about, but I'm glad i finally final tabled again, lol. Problem was i went into the final table chip leader :(Basically when there was I think 8 players left, I had a suited ace on the BB and called a small raise from the button. Picked up the flush draw and was getting good odds to call down (2.5 to 1 on the flop and I think it was something like 3 or 4 to 1 on the turn), Made the ace on the river, which i felt warranted a call, considering he was betting all the way down on a Q high flop. He then showed AK.This left me I think 2nd
  15. OK, this isn't really a specific question. Basically what I'm wondering is what are the common problems that a player may have in their game that causes them to go out in the bubble? I've cashed in three of my last four tourney's, but I haven't final tabled any of them... one of them I came 10th :'(So yeah, are there any common things that I should be looking for that might be causing this to happen? Or should I just chalk it up to bad luck for now, and see how the next few pan out?Any comments would be appreciated.
