  1. Easy preflop raise from the button. As far as the river, I'd probably bet this. MP2 probably had a weaker A. If it's a tricky player, I might check, but absent reads, I bet.
  2. no bonus right now, and yes, they usually have one each month, so no clue when november's is coming. They were offering some other type of bonus that was based on the player points (or whatever they are called), but it would clear so stupidly slow that I didn't bother with it, so not sure if that counts as their nov bonus.
  3. Pretty much, except for counterfeiting. It would combine the boredom of watching baseball on TV with the aggrivation of some donk playing J3 to a raise beating your 23 when a 2 spikes the river.
  4. Last night in a homegame, I have QQ on the button, a 3xbb raise and call in front of me, so I pop it to about 15xbb, sb goes all in (about 120bb) and 1 person calls, I call and sb flips over AQ. He hits his ace on the turn and I ask "why did you go all in with that hand? What did you put me on?" He replies, "queens or kings". The other person who called the all in had QTo, but I'm not sure who is fishier.
  5. 1.2 isn't super passive, but it's passive enough to where I fold this flop every time. If I misclicked and 3-bet, I'd play the rest the same.
  6. I'll raise this preflop against very bad players, but against typical 1/2 players (bad, but not very bad), I prefer to just call preflop. AQs is an obvious 3-bet. If I do raise preflop, I agree with betting the flop, but with just calling preflop, I like the c/r to get out any gutshots, which are going to be more common than flush draws here. If we know MP3 is fairly aggressive, betting out might be better, but against your average 1/2 passive player, I don't like betting out and praying for a raise.
  7. He have Acxc? That's the only thing that remotely makes sense here.
  8. What was stack size of the other 2 players?
  9. Please don't post here if you are just trying to show off your "expert play" and aren't ready to take some criticism and possibly reevaluate your own play. You're also not going to make it far as a poker player if you aren't able to critically evaluate your play, taking into account others' opinions, especially opinions from people better than you. Many times "flames" are actually full of important info. The 3 replies before your first reply all gave some info to you that you could use. You need to check your ego at the door when you click on a hand you posted and read the replies. It goe
  10. Not everyone has the money to play in the world series. Not everyone gets lucky enough to make the final table either. The right to criticize isn't reserved for those who are better in a certain field than those they wish to criticize. It doesn't take a pro to see how bad some of plays were.
  11. That hand was nearly as bad as the Tiffany Williamson all-in call with AJ. TW: "Let's see, raise, reraise, reraise all in, I call!"Really, when your raise is reraised on draw light board, pushing all in with top pair/weak kicker is probably the worst play possible. I seriously could not believe what I was witnessing.
  12. Get rakeback, that will increase your winrate tenfold.
  13. step 3 - make a list of all the times you bet into 5 people with A high w/ no draws, then apologize to your bankroll for each of them.
  14. I recently cured myself of ACBS and had a 300bb over 2k hand upswing, coincidence?
  15. You have freeways and on ramps in Idaho? They need some way to handle all the tourist traffic going to the dry pea and lentil capital of the world.
  16. I thought more about the hand and I'm likely folding, but if my opponent is aggressive, I'll probably call down. If I want to play and no reads on opponent, I donkbet a safe turn.
  17. I can see an argument for raising as button could just be betting since he was checked to and I could get a weak ace to fold from MP3 or CO, but with sb calling, he's not going anywhere and I very likely don't have the best hand, nor do I have an equity edge.And on the river, I don't have the 2nd nuts. The board paired, so I have like the 15th nuts. Had it not, I'd be raising that bitch all night long.Oh, and c/r the flop will not get me a free river "often". I used to try to c/r for a free card all the time and it just doesn't work. People bet when checked to on the turn after being c/r o
  18. Small pot, I'd tend to fold here. If I knew my opponent to be aggressive (not the typical 1/2 player from my experience), I might call down. 3-betting for info saves you 1 bet when you're behind, but loses you a couple bets when you're ahead.
  19. I'd just call down after the 3-bet on the flop. There's no point to capping really as it will ony slow him down if you're ahead while losing more money when you're behind. You're not getting any more info from it. Unless he's the type to 3-bet/fold to a cap.
  20. I've posted some overcalls situations in the past and always played them wrong. In this instance, I think I played it right for once. Tear me apart if I ****ed up again though!Been at this table for about 20 hands, and I'm watching football and browsing here, so no reads. I had notes on one guy at the table already, but he folded pf.Hero is BB with T:spade: J:spade:3 folds, MP3 calls, CO calls, Button calls, sb raises, Hero calls, MP3 calls, CO calls, Button calls.Flop (10 SB): A:diamond: J:heart: 2:spade:sb checks, hero checks, MP3 checks, CO checks, Button bets, sb calls, hero calls, MP3
  21. If UTG calls the flop raise and checks, we bet if we improve, check if we don't. Classic freecard play.If he calls and leads the turn, we raise if we improve, call if we don't.If he 3-bets, we definately cap. We have a nice equity edge.We then play the turn the same as if he had just called.And on the turn, we aren't betting because we're ahead most of the time particularly. We're betting to get a free showdown if we don't improve. If we do improve, we can then get more money in on the river if we improve.
  22. Just because sets can make a lot of money doesn't mean you should spew on coordinated boards. More often than not, this turn raise is a slowplayed flush or a higher set waiting for a non heart turn.More often than not? How can you be so sure at this limit against an unknown? Do you call down if the boat doesn't come?Couldn't the button be raising in position with a lot more hands that aren't sets or flushes here or could just be raising in position to try and get a free card on the river so they can get a free showdown if a 4th heart doesn't come? The only set we could be worrying about is
