  1. the book is intended for both cash and tournament NL games, with an emphasis on deep stack play. there are many threads about it here: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/postlist...rd=books&page=0 if you end up getting the book, be sure and read the sticky thread in my link which lists some typos i just ordered the book from pokerstars yesterday for 2000FPP. if you're a gold star member, you are better off getting an amazon gift certificate with your FPP and buying the book from amazon.

  2. calling down? Whoa! Talk about playing passivly! Missing out on bets, in order to survive in this game in the long run, its all about extracting as many bets with your hands/draws as possible! And can't play defensivly once theres a face card that hits the flop...
    thanks. now maybe screech will not go BUSTO!
  3. PokerStars 5/10 Hold'em (5 handed) Hand History Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FlopTurnRiver)Preflop: econ_tim is BB with Kclub.gif, Aheart.gif. 3 folds, SB raises, econ_tim 3-bets, SB caps, econ_tim calls.Flop: (8 SB) Qspade.gif, 6club.gif, 6spade.gif(2 players)SB bets, econ_tim calls.Turn: (5 BB) Jheart.gif(2 players)SB bets, econ_tim calls.River: (7 BB) 4club.gif(2 players)SB bets, econ_tim calls.Final Pot: 9 BB Haven't been paying attention to the action because I had to reconfigure my HUD. This is the first good hand I've seen. I would like a turn raise if the preflop didn't get capped.

  4. this is far from standard. normally this is a bad spot to cap 99 preflop. I just fold it most of the time. if you think CO is making a move on UTG, then maybe your hand fares better than it otherwise would. because UTG can go all in, he can get a cheap showdown, which takes away your ability to outplay him postflop. it is going to be hard to outplay CO since you are OOP, and even if you fold him, you might only get a sidepot. so i think it is still a fold preflop.

  5. played a short session of 10/20 today Full Tilt PokerLimit Holdem Ring gameLimit: $10/$206 playersConverterPre-flop: (6 players) econ_tim is BB with A :D A :)UTG raises, 3 folds, SB calls, econ_tim 3-bets, UTG calls, SB calls.Flop: 8 :) 8 :club: T :) (6SB, 3 players)SB checks, econ_tim bets, UTG calls, SB calls.Turn: 2 :D (4.5BB, 3 players)SB checks, econ_tim bets, UTG raises, SB folds, econ_tim calls.River: K :D (8.5BB, 2 players)econ_tim bets, . . . I had reads on most of the table, but UTG had newly arrived. Does my line make any sense, or should I just 3-bet the turn?

SB is crazy loose and the reason I'm in the game. His VPIP is above 80, but his AF is still high. He bets any piece of the board and I've seen him try hopeless bluffs too. Button is new to the game.

BB is new to table, but he seems fairly solid.

  12. You might be able to bet the turn if he's passivish or if he peels flop folds turn a lot. As long as he doesn't check/raise a lot.Given how you played it, a river bet is good. You've been checked to twice, a pretty big scare card has come, and you have good odds to bluff (value bet?) :club:
    river bet is not good as a bluff, since the only hands that beat you that might fold are KT-KQ. possible value bet if villain is a showdown monkey like me. although even i don't pay off with Q-high too often.
