  1. Hi Daniel,I know you know the Leafs a lot better than I do, so this reply is coming from a Sharks fan looking in.In my opinion, many of your points are valid in the blog entry, however I don't think goaltending is really the root of the problem for the Leafs.Look at how well Toskala played in San Jose, http://www.nhl.com/ice/player.htm?id=84621...avid=nhl-searchHe has done really poorly when he has played as a Leaf. Did he just become a poor goaltender overnight? I don't think so. Also: The Hall of Fame Game I watched against the Red Wings confirmed to me that Monster can be great in goal,

  3. ^ Never by the river.Except perhaps AAAA2 board and you have 22.
  4. You said SB was the agro machine preflop, not BB!!! With this new info, I lean toward 3 betting the turn since his hand range is so big, and a flopped set is not as likely in his 3 betting preflop range.
  5. I don't mind the flop bet since you think your hand is good, but when he check/calls the flop which contains absolutely no draws, you have to shut it down on the turn and go into check/fold mode.Just because your hand got counterfeited doesn't mean you have to bluff!
  6. Welcome back.IMO the best way to make money at games as low as $10 NL is to let people overbet into you a bunch and just call mostly, or minraise (minraise will be big on their huge bets)
  7. I'd fold preflop.On the flop, I like a bet/call line. Whether I improve on the turn or not I'm donk betting. If he raises, I 3-bet two pair, call down with trips, and I fold or call down without improvement depending on reads.
  8. I just want to make sure... If the flop comes T 8 4 and BB checks, CO bets, we raise with 33 right?
  9. You could definitely fold this preflop but calling isn't terrible either... The rest of the hand is fine, with a call on the river of course.Curious though, what if the turn is the 7 , we check, and he bets $84? Then what do we do?
  10. No not ideally but we don't know our hand isn't good on the flop, and we bet the flop because it quite possibly could be good. The way the rest of the hand played out is just how it's going to go down sometimes, other times we will have the best hand and both BB and CO will fold because they have no draw either, for example.
  11. I play it the same, this hand is not as interesting to me or as controversial compared to the others you have posted before this one.Next time though I'd hope if it's just a flop question that you don't post any of the action after that decision because it is very apparent that playing it the way you did on the flop probably maximized value based on results.If you still want to show the other portions of the hand or ask for further discussion on the turn for example, you can always post just the action to the flop first, create discussion, then when you are satisfied with the dicussion that ha
  12. This board has absolutely no draws so I think you're tied with one of them for the lead in the best case scenario, and plenty of times someone has AA or a set. Although I don't quite understand why BB would repop it here ever.
  13. The only other lines I can think of are check/call flop, lead turn (which I like)Or check/call down which is likely going to be calling his all-in on the river if he bets every street, in which case, I like check/raise flop better if we're going with this hand.
  14. Do we think check/raising this flop is a spew? It's 6-handed so his 3-betting range preflop in position might be fairly wide and include some hands we are ahead of like 88, 99, TT, AQ? Also, he might be a nit and fold a better hand thinking we have a king...
  15. I disagree, many players will flat-call here in position with strong hands (including myself many times) so that you will lead the turn and they can raise when the betting limits increase. Since it seems like I could easily have AA/KK/AQ here to villain, any of those are strong enough to call down after a turn raise and make the wait until turn to raise line often more profitable than capping the flop and having the guy check/call down turn/river bets.
  16. My read is that this villain wouldn't cap AQ preflop. I really hated the flop and felt like I was behind already before the action even transpired. After preflop I had the villain on AA/KK/QQ and maybe TT/JJ/AK. I 3-bet because I felt like anything else was too weak (which is not the reason you should do anything), and I wanted to charge MP1 as much as possible if he had a draw. After getting MP1 to fold, I was content to call down, if that makes any sense. The only hands I'm ahead of on the flop from the preflop range I had are TT-JJ, which I don't think they're aggressive enough to rais
  17. Preflop: Hero is dealt K K in SB.2 folds, MP1 calls, 1 fold, Hi-Jack calls, CO raises, Button folds, Hero 3-bets, BB folds, MP1 calls, Hi-Jack calls, CO caps, Hero calls, MP1 calls, Hi-Jack calls.Flop: 8 Q 3 ($51 in pot)Hero checks, MP1 bets, Hi-Jack folds, CO raises, Hero 3-bets, MP1 folds, CO calls.Turn: T ($72 in pot)Hero checks, CO bets, Hero calls.River: 4 ($84 in pot)Hero checks, CO bets, Hero calls.Reads: MP1 is loose passive.Hi-Jack is playing his 2nd hand.CO calls loosely preflop with marginal hands, and is kinda call stationish, haven't seen them raising much at all preflop, most
  18. Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 and holds A J :club:8-handed, No Small Blind This Hand, Folds to me, Hero raises, Hi-Jack calls, Button calls.Flop: Q 7 5 ($21 in pot)Hero...Reads: Hi-Jack plays more hands than he should preflop but is decent postflop, Button is weak/fairly tight.
  19. I think you should fold preflop. Villain raising your blind a lot is not a reason to call with a hand as weak as this.I really hate your flop check/call line, he should not expect you to have a 2 here very often if ever since you called a 4x BB preflop raise. Since he should never expect you to have a 2 here, a check/raise is in order, or perhaps a bet/3-bet line. If he has the queen, or KK/AA you're most likely stacking him if you play faster on the flop.
  20. With the limp re-raise PF so clearly defining your hand (the main reason i hate the play) and another dude in the hand on the turn which reduces the chances SB is bluffing, and the fact that CO could 3-bet turn, or raise river behind if we decide to call down, I think the turn is a fold.
  21. I hate the turn check, but I think you should probably call the river since the way he played the hand he could easily be making this play with a smaller two pair.
  22. These hands go either way depending a lot on reads.With that said, here's the best advice I can give you:Don't sit at the table when the buy-in is 1/3 of your bankroll.I wouldn't even classify this as taking a shot, because it's absurd.
  23. Some places let you buy-in for whatever... Easy fold though.
