  1. Has villan been showing down any hands? tendencies u have picked up on? Ur pot odds are only 1.875 to 1 really crappy odds with basically a bluff catcher .... i pretty much fold here but it is a pretty cheap call just to get a read on villan
  2. W/o any reads on the opponet and a made flush on the board i am not really sure why u are still in the hand after the flop a bet saved is a bet earned fold and move on
  3. I am calling so fast i am going to drive the button on my mouse so far thru my desk that i am going to have to pick it out of my leg ..... It is a DON tourney you have both well covered and are in no danger of going out ..... The article which you refer to about folding AA preflop refers to Super Satallite Tourneys right on the bubble with Garunteed Seats given to the remaing players and one of the shovers that shoved over the short stack has you covered .....
  4. J think you have to go with opponet reads and prior acvtions have you seen villian 2 call with questionable hands? Against 2 random overs your pretty much a 55/45 favorite (coin flipping) against overpairs your hoping this is one of those 17.5% of the times you bust out a set on them ..... But given your M in relation to the cost of living I am shipping to either induce a fold from the big stack and Isolate or grab 2 folds because my gut is the shorter stack is shoving any flop given the limited info .... and w/o a really strong hand i cant see the second villian calling off half his stack but
  5. I like a check behind your drawing to a straight and any 8 or k gets u there and the second nut flush .... so why not take a free card i mean you bet say 1/4 to half pot and he shoves what do you do? take the free card and evaluate from there
  6. My thought process is on a dry board with multiple opponets I would tend to flat the PFR hoping that one of the other Villians will flat also adding extra value to the pot thus capturing some extra value and see if i can get another street of value out of them then check shove the turn? Believable line ?
  7. Now my question is do you flat the PFR big raise and 3 bet the turn or do you 3 bet the flop?
  8. at a stt tourney the small ball strategy is hard to employ and the chip value you keep loosing when most everyone is limping is tough to compensate for .... I usually play a lot of hands at the early stages get a cushion and then set on cruise control until 75/150 .... early stage hand ranges for limping is pairs 22-99 all sooted connectors one gappers and even 2 gappers , the only thing i am really raising enough to push people out in early stages is KK+ and i am pretty much shoving those as in the low buy in stakes many people have a hard time locating the fold button unless their tournament
  9. Ok after hearing a podcast about actually donk betting into a pre flop raiser with a strong hand (Sets, etc... on a pretty dry board)to extract max value when OOP as opposed to check raising and killing the action .... it really struck a coord with me as many times the line i will take with flopped sets and straights was to check call then check raise the turn .....I kind of think it could be a good line to take especially against weak opponets who tend to play their hands face up but still have the ability to fold to a check raise but i thhink this line of leading into them then flatting thei
  10. Honestly at 1cent 2 cent i am simply amazed the third guy laid his hand down
  11. This one is fairly tricky ..... OOP and a villian who knows that you know his image and actually understand image ...... I dont hate folding but i dont hate check calling all the way down if the flush doesnt get there ...... because he is either getting a 3 bet in there before the flush gets there knowing you wont give action if it does get there or he has AK + tough part is getting that info and defining his hand ...... so i dont hate calling ..... but then again i am of the school AQ is a the bastard step child hand 99% of the time ..... so i pretty much fold it pre flop OOP
  12. I check shove the flop and then let him make the decision if he calls and the flush draw gets there oh welll but his bet on the flop doesnt scream a set it looks more like trying to get money in the pot in case the flush draw gets there and he figures you wont put any more money in the pot if that scenario happens
  13. Barry turned his hand face up with the strong c bet which makes dwans re pop look that much stronger with 7 players behind to act ..... then Peter turns his hand pretty much face up when he flats instantly .... I am pretty much at that point Barry wanted to puke right there on the table .... I dont completely dislike his peeling the flop after the re pop to catch his 2 outer .... Now when the 7 of Diamonds comes off on the turn Dwan Knows Barry is on an over pair and Eastgate has been playing so tight that Dwan Knows he is capable of folding a deuce with a weak kicker .... Now if Barry has a D
  14. Th 45/90/180 mtt's are a good way to build the roll but just remember dont bluff .... it is pretty much like selling a book to someone who cant read .... if they have a pair or catch the board they arent going anywhere which isnt always a bad thing .... in those i play a tight up front loosen up in the middle stages and then tighten up for a bit then close to the final table i loosen back up as some are just trying to ft the thing .... then at the final table i analize and proceed with caution ..... and if your looking for some laughs try the 25 cent 90 man ......
  15. Your facing a raise a ship a re ship and ur figuring the nines may be good? i am pretty sure your drawing to 2 outs ..... short stack ok his range is probably tens or better aj or better but then you have the added complication of the reship knowing he has you behind still to act .... is not exactly what you wanted as matter of fact i probably puke on the keyboard at that point , I still stand by in 3 way action you either coin flipping or way behind ...... Look at the hand from the perspective the short stack has 12 to 15 k in chips and ask yourself are you still calling after a re raise ship
  16. I'm folding in this spot .... Can not justify a third of my stack pre flop where you are either coin flipping or drawing to 2 outs at best ..... There are plenty of better spots to get your money in and gambool it up but you are possibly in this flip situation 3 way in which you are probably even further behind than you think .... You also have to consider implicatiions that if you loose a third of your stack are you really set up for a deep run? save the chips and pick a better spot because even a lag tard shows up with a hand more often than not
  17. i know how he went down 10 bucks in one session at 5cent 10 cent .... one of the many areas on stars you get your money in as a 80 % favorite and they continually suck off runner runner quads straighht flushes and anything else they need to win .... i call it the land of sticking it bad and your garunteed to win!
  18. Any reads on villian and his possible range .... Looks like he is playing a bigger full house in his mind _ i reraise
  19. For some reason I was thinking with no reads the first instinct given ther action that villan shows up here with KJ or Jx more often than not ..... but again I say this with no given reads no previous hands played vs villan (ie is he always showing up with the nuts ...... ) my initial thought was KJ or Jx.... Any thoughts? this is given the screwy play at these stakes (I have seen plenty of screwy plays at this level)
  20. Look i know you have probably written like 50 or more books on the perfect winning strategy and no i wasnt saying that i would have laid the aces down either .... so i am going to explain my original thoughts to you since you really arent getting it .... there are 4 aces in the deck .... you have 2 of them .... he has the other one .... one pair sometimes wins sometimes it doesnt but trips straights etc beat your pair ..... you still with me? just checking i know you seem pretty slow to outside the box thoughts ..... with ace queen he has straight possibliliteis thus giving him more outs and
  21. again i say even though you are a 92% favorite with the aces preflop and with Ace Queen a 70% favorite preflop the pot is not won preflop when your all in is called ..... and therefore you are flipping and putting your fate at the hands of the deck - which brings up this question anyone else notice when you get the chips in good as a pre flop favorite on stars how many times the suckouts actually happen
  22. Definately coin flipping there sometimes it makes it easy just to remember aces are the best starting hand not always the best finishing hand ..... thought that definately was brutal
  23. She's not a crazy personShe's not a cray personShe's not a crazy person .... Nope didnt work she has fallen completely out of touch with reality .... This woman is gone off her rocker and I have a feeling this has more to do with FT basically saying You are the weakest Link! GOODBYE!
  24. This situation is a common problem with playing small pocket pairs facing an early raise and a button reraise .... when you see your cards you need to have a plan from the time action starts suchs as for the dollar I will flat call and take a flop .... if facing raise i ditch the hand etc .... Given the actions and the reads i say cut the hand loose and wait for a better spot
  25. If the read on villian is that he he a strong player then realistically a set isnt able to be ruled out and a check call after the flop planning to ditch it on the turn if the board doesnt pair with such a draw heavy flop.... very curious as to villians range is peeling for later streets in his arsenal etc .... just a thought
