  1. i raised to get the others out. for the first few rounds all the hands i had to show face up were either pocket pairs or decent aces. i thought maybe my table image would get the weak limpers out so i could play a pot with the maniac. you couldn't put this guy on any monster hands. hell he called an all in, post flop with 9 10 clubs with a 7, j, 2 rainbow board. and ended up winning with a pair of tens. i was looking to protect my blind and if i hit a good board he would pay me off. i thought my play preflop was ok but my post flop play has been bothering me since it happened. to be honest i
  2. lol yeah i should have did that. i think the frustrations of this guy may have blinded my reads on him during this hand. my thinking was if i raised, the weak players would fold and it would isolate the maniac. that way if the flop went my way i would get some redemption in the way of some of his chips. my emotions may have kept me from seeing the obvious over pair.
  3. ok i need some opinions on this hand thats been haunting me for the past week.

  7. OK first off let me introduce myself since i am new here. my name is Eric i"m from new hampshire. i have been playing poker since age 12 when i would play with my uncles for pennys. my perfered game in no limit holdem but i do enjoy most of the other games aswell. i'm by no means a pro so i keep my buy ins on the low side, anywhere between $10-$125.

I've never played any thing thi
