  1. But you can't win if you fold Krablar!
  2. But surely the great Open Farrel deserves some love!

  4. Reminds me of a 1/2 hand I played in my last vegas trip. Basically same preflop action and flop. I fire nearly a pot sized bet. Turn bricks, I shove for a pot sized bet and he insta calls with QJ.
  5. I signed up for Minted poker through my usual affiliate for something retarded like 50% rakeback. I logged in at peak North American times, and there were under 500 people logged in. Basically no games going at all. 50% of zero is still zero
  6. I don't mind it. Enough draws missed and you've checked twice. Villains at this level won't be intentionally value betting a garbage 2 pair thinking you have an overpair. He's probably thinking you don't have much of anything and he can only win if he bluffs. I'd expect to see air/one pair hands a lot, 65xx with spades once in a while, little else.
  7. Probably. But good luck not burning yourself out within a month... or even a week.
  8. Most annoying announcers ever. Terrible bet sizing by both players though. Ivey must have had some read that this guy min or nearly min raises on bluffs.
  9. You're going to see something retarded like AT2x, A32x, A76x with 2 spades here a lot. This is almost never a bluff.
  10. 1 combo of 661 combo of 992 combos of T9If he only ever has one of those hands (and never A9xx, etc) we're exactly 50% equity. He isn't folding anything to a 3bet, so I'd get it in.
  11. Ask yourself this..Is it a worse beat when A3 goes all in preflop, KK calls and the board comes A9987 or 9987A?
  12. You don't have much more than a pot sized bet left, so just stick it in. If these monkies called $55 with A-x preflop, they sure as hell aren't going to fold in a huge pot getting 2+:1 after they hit their magic ace!
  13. J4 (even sooooted) is a piece of cheese. Especially against an early position raiser. Fold preflop and you won't find yourself in as many tough spots postflop.
  14. I agree, 25BB isn't much of a buyin. Live I buyin for no less than 30BBs, with money behind for at least another 20BBs. Live LHE is so swingy you need those extra BBs after a bad run.For anti tilt, just take a break/walk around a few minutes after a bad hand or bad beat.
  15. I play it the same. Calling out of position really isn't an option, as it turns our hand face up, gives him the initiative, and may even let him bluff us out with the same hand. A shove also makes him *maybe* fold a 2 pair hand.
  16. The title alone is enough to make it of questionable worth. Sounds like the title of a get rich quick (ie, garbage) scheme.
  17. Hand #3 - Out of position I just raise the flop. A straight in Omaha isn't an absolute monster, though your straight is as good as they get, with higher nut straight potential if an 8 or 9 comes off. You've gotta be worried about the board pairing, as it could give you a losing hand, or nearly as bad, allow the opponent to fold a lower straight, or fold you out with a bluff.
  18. You played it fine IMO. A rundown with one gap in the middle is definitely playable. On the flop a pot sized raise would leave an akward stack size on the turn if any scare card (heart or paired board) hits. So when it blanks you have to go with it.
  19. Even shorthanded stacks are too deep to play 88 for all your chips here. You're 80% at best, and 20% quite often here.
  20. I know what you mean, but just wanna point out that your chance of going broke is never 0. Although from the OP's post, it seems he wants to keep grinding out profit at 100NL.
  21. Multitabling is fine. But if you keep withdrawing your winnings like that, you will go broke eventually. 35 buyins is a good bankroll, but even that carries a small risk of ruin. However, if your bankroll stays at 35 BIs forever, eventually you will be ruined. I believe it was Mason Malmuth (and/or Sklansky?) who discussed this in one of his books on gambling/other topics.The logic behind it is this. Let's say your bankroll of X and your winrate Y provides a 96% chance of not going broke (thus a 4% chance of going broke). This assumes that as you win, your bankroll grows and your chance
