  1. Don't forget, in addition to the factors that you mentioned, the strength of your drawing hand matters. Are you drawing to the nut flush and the board is unpaired? or are you drawing for a straight when there are three diamonds out? I would be (or at least, should be) more likely to semi-bluff when I'm drawing to an ace high flush than a 10 high flush. So yeah, it's probably better to semi-bluff if you are drawing to the nuts than if you aren't, cause you can hit and lose alot of money. But of course, you want to mix things up by checking with your nut draw and betting with smaller draws s
  2. Wow guys, I don't know why you are having trouble getting into the red quadrant.Economic Left/Right: -9.12Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 6.97 That was easy. I just had to go with the "strong" answer in every case against corporations, and pro government personal control. Also, I'm extremely racist. Oh, and apparently I hate gay people.
  3. Just to be clear, even though everyone figured it out: yes, my score was a joke. I was in the libertarian-right region. I like the concept of that test, but I agree, there are some questions that bother me alot. Execution is a little bleh. One of the ones that bother me is the one about how totalitarian governments can be more decisive than other types. I'm thinking "Well obviously, and there are 100 downsides that come with it..." So how do we answer that? I mean, if I take the question literally, I suppose I have to agree. It's almost as evil as True or False questions on an exam, heh.
  4. Nah, it wasn't a troll thread. 'Twas a joke thread. roll threads are intended to be taken seriously so they get angry responses.
  5. Can't really tell, perhaps it's just the more revealing clothing she's wearing. I've never really stared at her boobs much, and I'd have to be really bored/creepy to go get another picture and sit at my computer comparing them. :PI always thought she was cute in a petite-badass sort of way, like Tina Weymouth (bass player for the band Talking Heads). Those pictures (whether it's the more revealing clothing or a boob job) make her a little less cute imo.
  6. Now, I know Obama has some popularity on this board, but sometimes I feel that we live in different universes. I mean, what exactly has he accomplished in his three months so far? Consider the facts:*Barack Obama called for the assassination Hugo Chavez*Barack Obama tried to invade Cuba and failed miserably*Barack Obama ran a campaign ad accusing his opponents of starting a nuclear war*Barack Obama got us entrenched in Vietnam with the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution*Barack Obama had sex with a female intern*Barack Obama's white half is a former member of the KKK*His black half is Muslim*Barack Obam
  7. Well, thanks for the positive responses.I agree, I think calling the river was a good move. I'm getting such a good price...I was expecting him to show an ace, actually.I disagree with calling the turn though. What if the board hadn't paired again on the river? Then I'd be in a much worse situation. I got really lucky with that river card, I think.EDIT:Actually...I do have two overcards. And if I'm happy with the board pairing, that gives me 8 more outs. Hmmmm. 30% odds....25% of the pot to call on the turn. Perhaps that wasn't as bad of a call as I thought. I called here in case he was just t
  8. Okay, well, to clarify a few things:If he had bet bigger, I would have folded for sure.If the board hadn't paired twice, I would be folding, even to his small bet.I was pretty sure he didn't have a pocket pair. If he had a high pocket pair, he would have likely reraised me PF. If he had a mid pocket overpair, checking the flop would be really stupid imo. (What do you do if you have two 8's and then a card higher than a 8 comes on the turn? Bah.) And if he has 22 or 33 he's counterfeit.I was worried that he could have a monster and be making tiny value bets.Anyway, I called, thinking he likely

  10. That was one of the best football games I've ever seen.
  11. I think you should pay close attention to whether it's the better players that make you skiddish, or the higher stakes.
  12. Somebody may have already said this...Next time you transfer money, you could break it into chunks. You ship him 100, wait for 100 from him, then you ship the next 100. Or maybe even smaller chunks.Sorry for that loss.
  13. Same things happened to me the other day. Pretty annoying (except the winning money part).
  14. Relieved that it's over. Also, curious to see whether Obama will be a centrist or not.
  15. Fold preflop. I fold AQo UTG usually. If the table is really tight or if we are short handed I raise it. I hate limping AJo here.Definitely fold to this bet. There are no hands that he can have that you can beat -- it's gotta be a better ace. I suppose you can rule out straights or two pairs here, but he could have a set, too. The only hand you can beat is a bluff.If he regularly double-barrells his C-bets, then he could be on a bluff. As played though you have to fold. He simply has control of this hand.
  16. Heh, I've never encountered any of these things live. Maybe I was the stinky one!
  17. I'd much rather do this with something like, say, KT, so you have a gutshot and an overcard if you get called by something like QJ. Nothing wrong with maximizing your luck factor while being aggressive. Isn't that what Gus Hansen does?Also is this necessarily the best flop texture to do this on? I'd prefer a paired, 3-suited board. This board might be 2nd best.I would probably just check this down and fold.
  18. Wow, this is excellent reasoning on why to bet the turn. I definitely prefer this line. I need to be thinking about what cards would scare me. I was really lucky that the river blanked or else I wouldn't have been able to raise. Well, really unlucky in retrospect, but you see what I mean.Here's some interesting math, guys. The pot as played is 2385. If I bet 200 on the flop, 340 (half) on the turn, and call 600 on the river as most of you would play it, the pot would be slightly bigger, 2565. If I played it the way I did, but in a more polished way (200 flop, check turn, 300+400 river), the po
  19. Lol. He had 83o and stacked you didn't he?Definitely get it all-in here.
  20. That's true, I did overvalue it.However, I'm 100% sure I can rule out AK here. Let's say that he hypothetically is. Limp in? Okay, so he's playing AK trappy, hoping to get a raise. Wait, but he gets his raise, and doesn't reraise? Very odd. And now he flops his TPTK and doesn't lead out? Just check calls? And he doesn't raise the turn either? This all went through my head when the King hit, and I concluded it was a blank. I put him on an ace here, but I was confident he didn't have AK.You bring up a good point about A8 though. I didn't consider that and that's a very good reason to just call t
  21. Thanks for all of your responses, folks! LOL. Good point. I still considered the possibility that he was drawing to a straight on the flop though, so I just checked for pot control purposes.So much for pot control on the river though. After he called my 600 reraise, he turned over 4c5c for the low straight.Any way to put him on this hand? Or did he disguise it too well by checking the turn?So, in conclusion, I definitely should have bet more on the flop. Might have chased him out. Even right after I made my bet, I felt like I should have bet 200 instead of 150.Alot of you said to bet the tur
  22. Well, if you think you are better than the average player in the tournament, you should tighten up imo. When you first move to a table, you don't know how everyone else plays and everyone else doesn't know how you play, so it "equalizes" things. If you are better though, the longer you play at the table the more and more money you will be able to make, since you will be reading the other players better than they read you. :)If you are worse than the average, then you should play looser, since you need to press your advantage while you have it.It's the same concept as playing more hands when yo
