  1. 2 things:1) do you have to set up seperate databases for Limit/nl games? If so, how do you do that?2) As far as statistics for NL. Do they differ from limit? Anyone have any guidelines as to what means what?
    you don't need separate databasesNL stats are calculated the same way, but stats of winning NL players are a lot different than stats of winning limit players. look at the stickies in the various 2+2 NL forums for more detail.
  2. If you think it's so unlikely that he has anything worse than a 9 as to not raise here, then you should also agree that folding would be best if you DIDNT make your higher straight.
    no, i wouldn't do that because there is always random misclick factori'm just saying i wouldn't lead this river if i were playing the boardbtw, some of you might be undercounting our outs on the turn. before discounting we have 3 queens, 3 nines, 4 eights and 2 treys.
  3. River raise seems standard.Flop and turn calls aren't.
    i think the flop call is ok ... i've probably got several outs and i should get at least an extra BB on average when i improve, and he will sometimes check the turn when i don't improveand the turn brings me more outs, although i'm getting worse odds

  7. My only question is can you imagine how many copies Sklansky and Brunson have sold. Does anyone know?
    hard to say, but mason malmuth says that when the poker boom began, 2+2 wasn't able to keep up with demand and certain books were sold out while they waited to print more copies.
  8. some good repliesfirst, i agree that K2s isn't a must steal handif i don't have a read on the BB, i like to test him by stealing with marginal hands . . . if he plays back, then i narrow my stealing range.i thought about the hand some more last night, and i don't really like the 3-bet unless i have a specific read that BB bluff raises flops a lot in these situations but will fold the turn if i resist. a safe play against straigtforward players is to bet/call the flop and check/fold the turn UI. again, maybe this is folding too many pairs in the blind. against more creative players, we can just call down from the flop raise.

  10. 3/6 six handedI have K :D 2 :) in the SB.Folded to me, I open, BB calls.Flop is 2 :club: 8 :) 7 :D I bet, BB raises, I 3-bet, BB calls.Turn is 8 :D I . . .Brand new PT database and BB is unknown.I know some people never fold in blind battles when they have any piece of the board as a rule. I don't believe that is optimal, but I also don't think much expectation is gained by folding showdownable hands in these situations.Here my hand is pretty bad, but if villain is raising overs, etc on this flop he is definitely calling the 3-bet, and maybe calling down w/A-high. On the other hand, such a player would 3-bet many of these hands preflop. Against a passive villain there is little I beat, and I don't think I'll fold any better hands. And if the BB is tricky, he will raise these flops with air often since I'm unlikely to have improved.

  11. I like just calling the turn, because he will always bet the river regardless, and you will hate life if you cap and he leads a heart turn.
    Sometimes we want to wait for a safe turn card to raise, but this is because raising a safe turn makes it too expensive for draws to call correctly.Waiting for the river to raise doesn't have the same justification since hands are no longer drawing. They either made it or they didn't. If villain is semibluffing a hand like J :club: T :D , then he will call a turn raise, but fold to a river raise. If his hand is really strong, he will lead the river after we cap the turn and we can just call. If he has a marginal hand, he might check/call.Compar these possible outcomes to what happens when we call the turn and raise the river. He will 3-bet us with hands that we beat, fold bluffs, bet/call some of the hands he would have previously check/called, and check/fold the other hands he would have check/called. He might also check/fold some busted draws. The choice depends on how much weight we give villain's possible hands, and how likely we think he is to bluff a missed draw on the river, but my guess is that capping the turn and betting if checked to on the river gets the most value.
  12. if you have a router, then you can connect both computers to a network and put the old PT files in a shared folder.if you don't have a router, the you can use http://beta.yousendit.com/ to send files up to 2GB.i'm pretty sure you'll need to install PT again on the new computer, and you'll need a new registration key, which you can get by e-mailing PT. for PAHUD, install it on the new machine and use the registration code that was e-mailed to you when you got PAHUD on your old machine.

  13. Should'nt you also back up the file hhdb.mdb, as that is the file where all your HH are stored?
    these aren't used to create the stats you see in pokertracker, but you will need them if you want to replay a hand
    Actually, that may not be the best way for a couple of reasons:1) It may not included the indices created by access (I'm not familiar enough with access specifically to say if this is the case or not, but it's a distinct possibility)2) The access database format may later change rendering the data file useless.
    These could be valid concerns. I have been able to get all of the relevant PT info by copying just the mdb file before, although I opened it with Access instead of PT (because I didn't have PT on the other computer).Luckily, almost everything from my hard drive was backed up, except for a couple months of poker hands.
  14. 1700 hands is a good amount of hands...you will already have an idea if you are a winning player or not...you MAY be on a slight downswing...but i say stay at 1/2 till you are KILLING it for 5+bb's/100 then move up when you KNOW you are a winnning player...
    sorry, but most everything you said is wrong.don't worry about losing $100 at 2/4 unless it causes you to get upset and make bad plays.
