  1. You know, I was disappointed with how I played this hand. I did call, almost without thinking. I think my biggest leaks come with big hands. Anyway, the board bricked off and I ... won ... looking back I should have probably folded ... but ... he had ... AQ. You poor americans missing out on the Party.
  2. It seems odd that for such a large amount, the decision would appear so close. Let me know if you want the results.
  3. Yes when I wrote the title I hadn't checked over the board, which is moiste, definitely not dry. So are we saying call or fold? I know top two isn't the nuts so I could fold here without going on monkey tilt.
  4. For a good player, you're probably right, but don't you think as this is Party and he doesn't seem great, he might be overvalueing AK-AQ...um...A2s? Oh yeah there was kind of a weird thing as well in that every bet and raise was fast, like checkbetraisereraisepausefortwosecsall-in. That made me even more want to call.

I was 24/20, AF 4-5. No big pots played between us before and no interesting pots played by him that I could remember at the time of the hand. Call or fold?
  6. Well so far the Cardrunners membership is divided, mostly agreeing with you, Acid_Knight. I am kind of surprised at this but I still hold out suspicions that some of the pros would call with this given that average player's EV < Cardrunners pro EV in this situation. Also remember that even if we are sacrificing 1-2% equity, we are increasing our percieved calling range against a regular, which is sometimes worth a lot. The more narrow our hand range is, the more predictable we become and the more profitable it is to raise our blind.
  7. Folding is not correct, in my opinion. With flops like Axx or Txx I'm not going to go broke, probably check/calling the former and c/c or c/f the latter depending on texture. I'd be interested to see what more people think of this so I posted it on the Cardrunners forum as well. Remember that the rest of the table is pretty awful so it's basically me and this player doing all the raising, isolating and 3-betting, taking turns to pound. His range is colossal, any pair, A8+, any suited ace, tons of suited connectors and almost all broadways. I think he has the reverse implied odds, not me, for t
  8. I think calling preflop is correct, though probably a small error with 100BB stacks. It costs $3 to call and we could win $162. That's 54-1 best case scenario. We flop two pair, trips, quads, or the nut flush almost 4.5%, that's about 21-1. Those figures don't show that we should call but they're worth knowing. I'm pretty sure we win here with an ace, the nut flush draw, or combo draw enough times that it's worth calling. Either way, it's not that important of a decision compared to the turn. Anyone have any more thoughts on this unusual line?
  9. Hate every street? Preflop and the flop are absolutely standard for me. Effective stackes are $160 and it's 6-max against a fairly LAG player. Then the flop I think checkraising is standard. Betting out is just odd, it announces you have something and also is something I wouldn't do if I hit big, so why do it with a draw. For me the only debate is about the checkraise on turn.

  11. I just lost $100 on a misclick, my biggest ever, but I'm sure you guys can have stories of far bigger numbers than that. I've also had a misclick save me $90 when I folded 44 preflop and would have lost set under set. All online poker players have done it, so do tell.
  12. Back in mid-2006 I was in my home in London and I watched a replay of Obama's 2004 convention speech. It was being mooted he would run for president and I became an instant, avid supporter. I was so confident I bet 225 pounds (proceeds to charity) on him being the next pres at 4-1 (you probably can't get 1/1 after tonight). A lot of people have a lot of reasons to support him and after hearing literally hundreds of speeches/adverts/assorted whatnots and have both his books (yes im a obamite) I could give thousands of good reasons. But for me just to have a truly honest man, a guy married faith
  13. To be blunt, this type of thing will slowly kill higher and then even mid-stakes poker both in terms of the number of players playing online and the skill of those players. This is what happened in chess, there was a boom around the time of Kasparov vs. Deep Blue but now the best machines (Fritz 11.0 and Rybka) can easily best the world champions. The lustre is gone and chess is all but solved. Don't get me wrong, I think it will take a long time. Many players won't know this technology is around and others will and still won't use it/care. But when machines that can almost perfectly and insta

  15. Hmm, a mixed response. As for this being Party Pokah, that actually means a raise is more scary because players are very passive at this level. Discuss further merci vraiment.
