  1. one don't raise to 400 preflop anywhere from 200-300 is sufficient. two when he 5x's you to 2k and your stack is roughly 5k and you're oop it's probably either a shove or fold situation depending on if you're willing to coinflip at best for your tourney life. if you do flat pre then you almost have to check with a stack of 4k and a pot of 4.5k a bet would prob be all in. Same deal with turn and river with two overs you're looking to get to showdown as cheaply as possible. looks to me like he has kings and you're not gonna get him to fold it.

  2. ok so im the essence of a poor bankroll management player and because of that i have obviously struggled hardcore with building any sort of a roll. with many of the games around me being 1/2 and higher i decided i wanted to try something new. so the plan is to deposit $250 on starts and start out by play 25nl games probably two at a time. my goal would be to log in hours everyday and at the end of the week, month, etc show a nice profit. now my question is does this sound like "ok" money management or should I start playing smaller stakes like 10nl or stay at 25nl and only single table? any input would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

  3. obviously villain could have realized that i was an aggressive player from the small blind that would have jumped at the chance to pick of the BB and a limper but on account that he couldn't even keep track to what the big blind and ante was i dont think he was anywhere near that caliper of play. the main point of this is that regardless of whether he raises or limps im forced to go allin so it was going to end up being a cooler either way.

  4. ok i did end up jamming and the CO obv. calls with KK lol. I thought that was the right play when i did it but when something like that happens you tend to start second guessing yourself. I talked to some fellow players that have a solid game and they all agreed i did the right thing. Thanks for the input.

  5. Was playing in a live tournament on Sunday and made the final table. We had eight people left which was two places before the money when this hand arose:Blinds 1500-3000 with a 500 ante Folds around to cutoff who has 40k stack and he limps in for 3k. (player had been doing weird things all day like limping, min-raising, or even 7x preflop bets)POT: 11,500Button FoldsIm in small blind and look down at 77 and my stack is 40kBig Blind Stack is 20k What would you do in that situation w/ 77?

  6. hey guys im playin in the fulltilt $24+2 limit holdem tourney tonight and was wondering if their was any advice out their of how to approach it. I know w/o antes in play my opening range should be much tighter but is there anything else that i should be doing in late stages of limit holdem tournies? Thanks.

  7. Besides being extremely situational it also depends on what kind of player you are. I know we all want to view ourselves as good poker players but we have to be honest with ourselves and figure out what kind a poker player we are. The reason I say this is a top pro is never looking to get his money all in pre flop with AK because of the fact that you run into AA KK way too often and if not that your in a coin flip for all your money even agains deuces! The pro feels that he has more than a 50/50 edge on his opponents and can find better spots to get it all in before the flop. On the other hand, an ameteur is for sure going to get all his money in the pot preflop with AK because he edge is non existent or minimal against his opponent and is trying to get all his money in as hopefully a small favorite to win. Bottom line is there is usually no shame in getting it all in pre flop with AK it really depends on the situation and how you view yourself at the table. Hope this helps...

  8. the correct decision is obv to get it in if he's been raising several hands in a row and chipping up why would he stop when he has junk? AQ is super far above his range but the decision really is whether or not u want to cash or have a chance for the win if u win this pot and are at the 12-15bb range then your in a running to win but if you keep folding and cash but only have 1bb left then the odds are against u from coming back. Bottom line is if you want to cash u fold you want a chance to win then u take the chance of bubbling and shove it in.

  9. I think we have to call flop though because of the fact that yes it sends off warning bells when he min 3-bets but if he min three bets JJ and QQ then we have to call flop to see if he checks turn then if he does check turn were almost always ahead. Also the raise preflop from myself, as i said earlier, I thought had a high sucess rate even thoguh SB just moved to the table the BB was not defedning really at all he was either folding or 3-betting and the original limper had been limp folding all day so ifelt as though this was a good opportunity to pick up the pot. Ill try to find the original hand history.

  10. Ok i wasnt too specific on the details of this first of all id like to clarify that this was a 6-max and that the limper had been limp folding to raises all night to the person to my right and so when he folded I took it as an opportunity to increase my stack then the SB 3-bet the minimum which I really didnt know what it meant because he had just been moved to our table. The pot at this point was about 12k. When the board comes KT4 rainbow i dont think im ever folding because of his c-bet range being so wide there it does not have to include a better king. He's C-beting 77+ AJ+ IMO and sometimes any ten that connected with him so i call a 7.5k bet on flop because i did flop a decent hand. On turn the bet was 15k into a pot of around 27k. As for his stack size he had around 90k in chips when the hand started so over double my stack. My line on turn is what im wondering about at this point.

  11. I have about 40k in chips with blinds 600 1200 and 120 ante there is a limper in front of me and with K9s I make it 3750 to go to try and steal the small blind min three bets me other two fold and I call. Flop is KT4 rainbow sb bets I call turn is another ten now I'm sitting on about 25k and the sb bets 15k...what do I do here???

  12. I dont think I would limp in this spot. With a hand like tens Im looking to get the hand heads up with someone. The reason being if Im in position with Tens and the flop comes K85 I can easily pick up the pot there if my opponent doesn't have the King but if Its a K85 flop with four people then I'd be hard pressed to c-bet that flop even if checked to. On the other hand a hand like fives, sixes, or sevens I almost always limp behind in that spot because I look at those hands in early stages of a tournament as mostly drawing to a set. I think you played the hand well, c-betting that flop isnt terrible but as others said if your opponent doesnt have an Ace or King he's folding to virtually any bet so making your c-bet less would be a good idea. As for the river a for sure fold your never ahead in that spot imo. Hope this helps...

  13. May Results: really sucked and don't want to think about it...June Goals: Deposited $100 on stars and am going to grind mtt's starting with $1-$5 ones (using only 5% of my bankroll max on tournies) and moving up as my bankroll allows. Example: if my banroll is $500 mid way through June I will begin playing higher stakes with a max of $25 per mtt Ill only be playing 4 tables at a time max...I think i'm using good bankroll managment. If anyone disagrees please let me know what im doing wrong. Thanks and good luck to everyone else this month!
