  1. i'll try to give some more advice later, but for now you should know that you will typically have to pay two months' rent up front to get an apartment (first month plus security deposit). for some places you'll have to pay three months' rent. it may be difficult to get an apartment since you won't have any documented source of income and your parents might not want to cosign your lease, in which case you would have to pay for everything up front. there could also be set up fees for cable and internet. you have to pay for all these things before you can start playing poker in your own place
  2. i don't think deuces are a good completing hand since there are virtually no good flops for you, the fold equity from raising preflop (either by getting the BB to fold preflop or on the flop) is the reason you can play the hand at all.
  3. i don't take your line against any type of player i've run into if dude is a total autobettor, you can just call down
  4. your reasoning is good if SB is a thinking player. since he plays 40% of hands, though, he might not be disciplined enough to fold even when he thinks he has only 3 outs.
  5. against that range, i fold the flop because you aren't going to be able to play the turn and river correctly often enough (e.g. you won't know if you're ahead when turn a ten).
  6. this really depends on MP3's 3-betting range if it is rather tight, you are almost certainly dominated and can check/fold the flop if he three bets a lot of hands, then peeling is OK

PFR is 50/20/1.5, SB is 40/0/0.75, no real reads
  8. villain is so aggressive, i 3-bet the flop and hope he caps
  9. if this is a value bet, it's pretty thinvillain will pay off with AK, AQ, AT and 55 maybepossible check/raises coming from KJ, AJ, QJ QT and airand there is some possibility of A8s or K8s
  10. with 40k hands, you can get some decent position stats to see if you're losing too much from the blinds, not winning enough UTG, etc. you could probably go to a few more showdowns, but your stats are consistent with a winnning style.
  11. the pot is so big on the flop you should bet if there is even a small chance of taking it then even if you get c/r-ed you aren't in bad shape
  12. sometimes the games are tight, but they aren't full of expert players. the hard part is finding an open seat.
  13. ordered "how good is your limit hold'em?" today. i know some of you have read this and that it is geared towards full ring, but i'll let you know how much info there is on HU/SH pots. and this isn't exactly news, but 2+2 is planning on releasing a book on high stakes and short-handed LHE in the fall. (link) should be lots of good ideas for discussion.
  14. Full Tilt PokerLimit Holdem Ring gameLimit: $5/$105 playersConverterPre-flop: (5 players) econ_tim is UTG with 7 7 econ_tim raises, CO calls, Button folds, SB 3-bets, BB folds, econ_tim calls, CO calls.Flop: 9 8 4 (8.5SB, 3 players)SB bets, econ_tim raises, CO folds, SB calls.Turn: 6 (6.25BB, 2 players)SB checks, econ_tim bets, SB calls.River: J (8.25BB, 2 players)SB checks, econ_tim checks.Results:Final pot: 8.25BB villain is 56/40/1 over small sample ok?? i really think i'm good on the river, but don't want to risk getting c/red (which i would have to call because i don't trust villain
  15. You guys are right. If this pot were bigger (say 16SB on the flop instead of 8SB) then I think my play would be right. But as it is I think raising the flop is best.
  16. In the other example, my 3-bet likely isolates UTG. In this hand, the limper probably isn't going away. Here I have position, so I can weather a multiway pot. 3-betting here is the standard line, but I think cold-calling is OK sometimes. It makes it hard for observant opponents to read you. I know I hate it when people do this against me.
  17. Full Tilt PokerLimit Holdem Ring gameLimit: $5/$109 playersConverterPre-flop: (9 players) econ_tim is Button with Q A UTG calls, 2 folds, MP2 raises, 2 folds, econ_tim calls, SB folds, BB calls, UTG calls.Flop: A 4 T (8.5SB, 4 players)BB checks, UTG checks, MP2 bets, econ_tim calls, BB calls, UTG folds.Turn: A (5.75BB, 3 players)BB checks, MP2 checks, econ_tim bets, BB calls, MP2 raises, econ_tim calls, BB calls.River: T (11.75BB, 3 players)BB checks, MP2 bets, econ_tim calls, . . . MP2 is solid as far as I know. BB is the type of player who calls 3 cold preflop with a pair of fours.
  18. The pot is so big, I would rather give up the value I get from a flop raise in exchange for better protection with a turn raise.re: UTG being loose or tight, I play so much SH now that I forgot that TAGs have VP$IP around 20 in full games
  19. I'd 3-bet AQs, especially if the LP folds postflop too much. I thought I had a good chance of getting a multiway pot if I CC. Why? I doubt even gutshots are folding. This sounds good. I guess the only thing I was worried about was the SB being retarded. I also wouldn't mind folding 2nd or 3rd pairs if I were ahead. And since most of my outs are to the nuts, I don't gain much equity by folding worse hands when I'm currently second best.

  23. what's up? let's get something going.
  24. i'll play real money strat tables up to 3/6i think having an up front fee might be more trouble than it's worthwpex would be a great place to do this if they allow private tables
  25. in case you haven't already read about this, there is a good short handed video with commentary at stoxpoker.com. there is a link to it in stoxtrader's latest blog entry.
