  1. -Its another one of those continuation-bet-with-2nd-pair-runs-into-top-pair situations...crying call I guess, getting like 8 to 1
  2. Well when I say he "raged"...what he said was:"OMFG""I'm so pissed right now""Of course"...I'm guessing he meant to raise it to $1750.
  3. Did anyone else see Joe Hachem mis-click in the WCOOP main event?? Check this out!!

  4. I dont think this is "set or fold" at all. In fact I think I may call here. The villain will shove with a lot of hands, including AK, AJ, a flush draw, etc...and with an un-eventful board like that, I can see how he may think he can steal the pot by shoving. Of couse sometimes you will run into a Q, but not enough to fold. Good call sir. Overcards are not that scary.
  5. I would just call and then shove any non 6, 8, or spade turn. Getting away from KK there would be tough.
  6. I think that may be the worst beat I have ever seen. My prayers are with you....that's if bad beats exist in draw poker...I'm not sure.
  7. I don't see much value at all in betting this river. You are basically bluffing, since you will only get called with a straight mostlikelI guess you might get called with 2 pair, or maybe top pair if the villain is a retard. It's close. I probably check the river, evern though a set is sooo sexy.
  8. Hey guysJust a general question here: (strictly tournament poker)When open raising, I have almost always raised to 3X the BB (if the BB is 20, I make it 60 to go)...and I will add an extra BB for every limper in front of me. 1. Does anyone change the size of their raises from different positions? (not talking about blinds). If so, then why? 2. Does anyone always raise to 4X or 5X? If so, then why? 3. How about re-raises? Any rules there? 4. Any differences between MTT or single table SNGs? *for simplicity, assume I have NO reads on anyone at my table. Comments appreciated.
  9. This shouldn't even be a question dude. You call. You have half your stack committed already...and you are ahead of most of his range (KQ, KJ, KT, 22+, etc)..the only hands that crush you that he may have 55, 77, QQ, KK, or AA.
  10. So I flop a flush, and it was obvious at least one of the villains had a big club. Did I protect my hand well enough? Should I have played it faster and tried to get heads up? Anyone play it different??

  11. Also...what you said here is true, but it is very 1st level type thinking. Instead of just considering what hand other players may have, you also need to consider what other players may put YOU on...and in this case, you should know that a thinking player will know that you probably didn't hit the flop either...and call you light.
  12. I agree that this flop probably didn't hit anyone.....but didn't you say that everyone had been playing tight? With his preflop raise, you can probably put him on a big ace or pair...and in my experience many players will call this type of bluff.
  13. I don't know...you guys are forgetting he is raising into the BB that is the chip leader...I think I would put his range about the same that a normal button raise is. Push or fold. Without reads, I would just fold.
  14. Raisy Daisy man!! Come on....its not even a question. You're gonna put him on a 46??
  15. Let him bury himself. I ****ing love playing HU against these types of players. His crazy play will work every time but once right? Smooth call with big hands and let him do the betting, and push back every once in a while to keep him in line. The trick is to put the difficult decisions back on him.
  16. 10-4. You expect us to believe you flopped quads 3 times in a month?? And flopped quad aces and lost??? Geez man I know online seems like a suckout fest (and that's because the enormous amount of hands you play as opposed to live, which naturally creates more bad beats)...but losing 3 times with quads? I don't believe it. I've been on Stars for 4 years, gotten quads countless times, and NEVER lost with it.
  17. If a crappy player tells you how and why he makes his crappy moves, smile and nod to reassure him he should keep playing how he is playing...and then take his money.
  18. I think you played it fine...but I would bet the river for sure. You can't just assume someone has Q10 and chicken out. You have the 2nd nuts dude.
  19. I personally have been playing the Stars 1/2 limit games for about a year, and have found that the SSHE strategy works very well. If you find the TAG style to be boring (as I do), then just open up like 4 tables and a SNG. Of course since you're playing 6 max, the TAG style may not be good since you are going to need to play a lot more hands.
  20. You could lead...as I would probably do there...or you could check and let him bet to try and pick up the pot...then raise all in. That may give him good odds to draw with over cards or like A10 or something.
  21. I usually re-raise big on the flop there. If he has a set then fine...but you will see AJ, A10, etc waaaay too often to fold.
  22. Even if you put him on 88+, you are a 57% favourite...and if you put him on JJ+, you are still a 55% favourite. Go all in.
  23. In the first hand I would shove the turn for sure, since calling almost always gives you a very tough decision on the river...since most of the deck scares you (bigger board pair than 8 or 5, any diamond, any small card that completes straight draws...)As played, I would probably fold the river.Second hand...he could have a ton of hands...89, 10x, etc...but you also beat a lot of his range too, like Ax, or a mid pair that he may have bluffed on the river with when a scare card hit. I call.
