  1. Any read on the button? Personally I would fold the river bet, but then again I'm an idiot.
  2. I think my tone of previous post was a little harsh and wanted to clarify it, plus I was a little drunk. My main point was that I thought the original post could have been presented better. I think if you gave a range of hands for the dead money the post would have been a little different, or added a little bit of pot odds after their call. I think that an important thing to remember is that even though the dead money doesn't have a premium hand, they still may hold a decent % of the pot. I think this is an interesting thinking hand, but needed to be present differently. Kind of like the
  3. If you believe so strongly that this is an abnormal situation, doesn't soliciting information from people that weren't there gain you little information. Your hand and feeling is heavily read dependent and considerably atypical for a hand where you had no reads. I personally don't see the point of this post other than to point out that sometimes a very strong read can give you information that is considerably apposed to general strategy.
  4. I shoved, and afterwards was wondering if it was the right play or not.Results in whiteVillain called with A-Qo, MP folded, Villain flopped a Queen which held up.

Also, final 2 make the money so nowhere near the bubble but blinds are getting big for the stacks.My question is "Is this a shove?" Raising
  6. I would love to see the guy's reasoning for his river bet.
  7. I think that given you have little read on the villain, you did fairly well for the hand. I like the idea of the turn raise, but what hands call you there? Pocket pairs 10 or Jack through King and a 6, probably. Most of those pairs reraise preflop to a button raiser, and a 6 you are losing to. So the next question is did you lose value on the river? You have to assume that by raising you are committing all of your chips whether you go all in or not, as a re-raise would have to be called (just to keep in mind). But the river bet doesn't seem like the BB got lucky to me and out drew you.
  8. This was my thinking on the river. The hands I was really concerned about were J's, 10's and 8-9. I really didn't think J's, or 10's would play this hand this way. With Jacks I thought that this player would have put in a bet preflop; same with 10's. I thought 10's would also put in a bet on the flop. This player seemed too tight to call on a gutshot, but I thought he would play a weak jack like this up to his initial river bet. At that point, I put in a modest raise thinking a jack might payoff at 3 to 1 pot odds. Obviously, I played this hand rather poorly, and honestly I didn't think
  9. My read on the Villian is TAG and seems pretty solid. Has been to a couple showdowns in big pots early with a set and top 2 pair.

  10. I was curious as to people's opinions and preference to 6 handed vs 9 hold'em SnG's. Do you approach the strategy of either considerably differently or avoid one version for a particular reason?
  11. I think that the main point about poker on tv is the ratings ESPN (or whoever) would get. Especially what is good to tv to your non-poker enthusiast. I and I assume many people here not only would like to see the other events but also seeing every hand of a final table would be interesting. You have to admit though that a hand where someone raises preflop and everyone folds isn't interesting to regular tv audiences. I really think that the most likely ways to broadcast most final tables will be either pay-per-view or streaming over the internet. ESPN is going to show what is interesting a
  12. I say shove, Button has an M of 7.5, which means his hand could be a lot of things of which 10-10 is better, unless he is a very tight player. The MP1's range of hands is probably worse than yours. I like pushing, if the stacks were much bigger I'd think about folding here.
  13. Completely agree, also don't forget you had the best hand here PF.
  14. With a large stack and weak-tight opponents of low to mid M's I think this will work in smaller buyin tournys also. I heard, I think, Phil Gordon talk about this on his ESPN Poker podcast too.
  15. Thank you for the responses, I did end up checking the river. I wanted to see if any case would be made for betting in this situation.

  18. Hey not to rain on your parade or anything but you should be more careful playing sets with flush and straight draws on the board in Omaha.If the person had had something like Ad Jd 10 5, you would only have been a 52% favorite, and if they had had Ac Jd 10d 5c you would have been an underdog with only a 48% chance to win.
  19. Hey everyone, thank you for the replies. I read that article and really appreciate whoever posted that. The reason I posed this question was that I am a low limit NL hold'em player. I've been playing $0.10/0.25 NL games and had made about 8 buyins worth seemingly immediately at the weaker tables in this buyin, and I was wondering at what point should I consider moving up. Based on your suggestions, I am going to stay at the lower limits that I am currently playing at until I am at a much more comfortable bankroll.Thank you,Ben
  20. I'm sorry if this is this in the wrong forum, but I was just curious if there is a suggested total bankroll for NL hold'em. For limit I've heard that 300 BB should prevent busting from variance. Is there some similar rule of thumb for NL based on blinds or maximum table buyin?
  21. Thank you for the replies.And if you were interested the Big Blind folded and Villain turned over As-6h. The Jacks held up.

  23. I'd find it hard to believe that he would have a flush based on the call on the turn. The bet he called was $40 into a $95 pot, or about 2.4 to 1 pot odds. To me that's a pretty loose call, and makes me think that he already has a hand like top pair.
  24. I was reading the cash out policy for Poker Stars, and was wondering if I am reading it correctly. I think it says that each cash out can only be for the amount that you deposited. So if I deposit $50 and want to withdrawl $250, I have to do 5, $50 withdrawls? Am I reading this correctly? And if I am, how often can you withdraw that amount? Thanks for the help.
