  1. Way to lock up that 1st place Loosh!
  2. How to make a call and win with J high?
  3. I got mine couple of weeks ago too. Thanks Bob and Matt.
  4. Both played the hand fine imo. After villain checked-raised on the flop, it would be a mistake for him to fold to your shove getting almost 2.2 to 1 to call.
  5. Fairly standard BvB and I like your 3bet raise instead of 3bet shove.
  6. Congrats on your recent wedding as well!
  7. Josh thought Aldridge was the most difficult opponent remaining when they were 4-handed and said Aldridge was a lot more knowledgeable about the game than he looked/acted. Aldridge also has a bracelet and we didn't think it was a "zomg i has top pair I call" but rather a well-thought out call (even though it was pretty much a snap call when Josh jammed he had thought about his decision while Josh was tanking).
  8. Not really sure what you mean. Are you implying that he didn't consider the math aspects when he made the call?
  9. Well said and great post James. Wishing you continued success.
  10. These were the stack sizes before the start of Josh's hand:Level 33: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 anteSeat 1. Joshua Pollock - 5,325,000Seat 3. Will Failla - 3.375,000Seat 5. Ken Aldridge - 6,850,000Seat 6. Jeff Vertes - 8,175,000I am not sure if Aldridge's flop c/r is standard, but once he made that raise and Josh jammed, the pot was about 7,050,000. It was about 3,600,000 more for Aldridge to make the call so he was getting just about 2 to 1 to call. He made the call fairly quickly so he probably already decided that he was calling a jam while Josh was tanking to the c/r. They've played quite a bit together over the last couple days so I think Aldridge made the call believing that his hand had more than 33% equity against Josh's 3-bet jam range on that flop. After that hand Josh and many others agreed that Aldridge made a good call.GG Josh very nice run.
