  1. HEM's tourney support isn't nearly as good as its cash game support. The HUD is still useful, but the actual interface for tournaments isn't nearly as polished as PT3s (as of 1 month ago, I've stopped playing poker for a while so correct me if I'm wrong).As far as cash games go, HEM >>> PT3. Less buggy, easier to use, and I think it costs less too?
  2. in the 8 game as well.. AKProdigy. such a waste of my time but meh lol
  3. Yeah that was pretty much my reasoning for check folding. Just wanted to confirm. Thanks for the responses.P.S. I don't know how anyone can lay that down on the flop...

  5. I can't really prove this or try it out, but I think this is right just the way I think it in my head (I know thats not very reassuring lol). Basically thinking behind it is that the dice roll probabilities make up a matrix that is 6n large because every possible roll adds a new dimension. So one roll is a single row matrix of 6 cells, two rolls is a 6 x 6 matrix, three rolls is a 6 x 6 x 6 matrix etc. Average score for n rolls:(6n + 5n + 4n + 3n + 2n + 1n) / 6nSomeone actually try it out and let me know if it works out.

  6. Just a quick note, I've been using Hold'em Manager for the past month, and I don't think I can go back. It's overall just very efficient and runs more smoothly, and the HUD is really customizable with a variety of stats, and just a lot of things to play around with. I sometimes do have problems if I get switched on a table in a tournament, since the HUD doesn't automatically update (maybe its just me, dont know), but I primarily play cash games anyways so I haven't really tried figuring it out. It's tournament support is much worse than PT, so if youre primarily a tourney player until HM comes
  7. Am I really weak if I'm actually considering outright folding on the flop? We're behind AA/KK from the getgo, TT and JJ got there. The draw is incredibly drawy, with us catching none of it (other than the runner runner 3rd nuts). I think that by contuining in this hand, we make a lot less when we're ahead, but lose a lot more when we're behind here. Correct me if I'm wrong, because I think it sounds weak, but I don't really think calling is optimal here, especially since we're essentially going to the turn with a good chance we're behind and no outs.And I have no idea about preflop. I would pr

  10. If you have villain on a set, why check-raise the river instead of betting out? Regardless, I don't like checking the river unless you have a specific read, because too often villain will check behind instead of stab at the pot.

  12. I have no doubt that it's unprofitable. I'm hoping that it will help change my postflop play for the better, since I feel one of my major weaknesses is playing the turn and river. I'm rolled for 100NL but haven't moved up because I think my postflop play isn't strong enough. I feel like I'm a winning player at 50NL, but that most of money is from good preflop play, and not good aggressive play from the turn onwards. I'm trying to correct that by playing situations and my opponents rather than my cards, and then implementing it back into my TAG strategy. If anyone has any advice, I'd be glad to
  13. I should have noted in the post to ignore my preflop play. I was playing something like 40/6 for an hour yesterday to try and just purely play postflop (basically raising if I was first in, but flat calling in position a lot and trying to steal pots postflop). I ended the session down a buy-in over 4 tables, but it served its purpose. I'm thinking of moving down to 25NL and trying to play ~ 50/45 and adapting to bigger pots postflop.Anyways, range of hands you put villain on (calling range + folding range), just for my own affirmation? A friends whose play I respect and myself had differing op
