  1. December Results1) Play 7.5k hands at $50 NLFell short by about 2.5k. 2) +$750 (~10PTBB/100 hands)Over the targetted winrate, didn't play enough hands to reach the profit goal.January Goals1) Play 10k hands.2) Move from 4-tabling to 6-tabling.3) Move up to 100NL by end of month.

  2. I preferred the 1.75 /18's, and then after that started to play the 3.25 /45's once my bankroll was about $120 (both are extremely lucrative.. especially multitabling them on a small roll). If you're a decent enough player, you should be able to build that bankroll up pretty fast. The amount of bad players kind of renders the risk of variance (aka going broke quickly due to a bad run of cards). 5NL is also an option, but its a slower grind. The sitngo play at the microlimits is so bad I'd advise you take advantage of it while your bankroll is low.

  3. Work out the probability that the guy has aces and isn't playing KK AK QQ, work out how much money is in the pot, do equity calculations from those possibilities and match it to the pot odds.Or more realisticaly, think of any ultra compelling reasons for you to fold, then ignore them all and call.A spot where you may consider folding KK http://youtube.com/watch?v=m_idnY8czeQ
    Yeah I know. I'm more interested in the percentages people would assign to the probability of him having certain hands. I understand how to do the math.
  4. First off, I didn't put the stats up there as a means of supporting a fold. I think a lot of people have mentioned the sample size, which I already know is too small to support anything. I have it up there strictly as somewhat defining the villain as I've seen so far. I wasn't defining him as solid based on his stats, I was defining him as solid based on what hands I'd seen him play, which obv wasn't much.And I call here everytime in this situation. I want to be clear that I'm not advocating (even if I second guess myself afterwards) folding here, but simply trying to form a base for when to fold KK preflop. I was hoping someone would put the opponent on a range and likely holdings with percentages just so that I can clear my head about it lol. I appreciate the responses but all I really got was a bunch of never fold KK in this postiion, as I expected lol. I'd appreciate anyone breaking down the math for me just so I can compare to what I roughly did in my head after the hand. Thanks.

Do I lose value by not raising here? no reads on villain. I checked behind on turn to induce a bluff on the river in case he had nothing. The value-bettish throw in on the river kind of threw me off as i was expecting either a sizable bet (representing a hand that beat me, a strong ace (maybe) or a bluff. i autocall in both scenarios) or a check (meaning i had him beat and would value bet myself).Side note: Did I play this way too passively?NOTE: I realize I posted this in the wrong forum by mistake. If Zach or anyone could move this over to the correct forum it would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

  7. PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed) Poker Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FCP)MP ($47)CO ($50.45)Button ($81.60)SB ($43.75)Hero ($26.90)UTG ($56.30)Preflop: Hero is BB with Q :club: , Q :D . UTG raises to $1.5, 1 fold, CO calls $1.50, Button raises to $7.5, 1 fold, Hero ?UTG running 20/5Button running 21/20No reads on CO through 5 hands.Is this an auto push considering my stack size? I was mainly concerned with UTG's raising range there, and the fact that button had to have been at the table long enough to know this.

  8. I would normally fold this. You should bet more on the flop after tptk.
    ?? he bet 1.10 into a pot of 1.40 lol. Anyways, 5.85 to win a pot of 14.05... about 2.5 to 1. I call here minus any significant reads and the fact that people at these stakes are more likely doing this with a draw or an ace with a worse kicker. My immediate thought processes for these hands are first pot odds, and then putting him on a range based on his actions and my perceived image of him.
  9. How do you guys deal with tilt (or super tilt)?After finishing on the bubble 3 straight times, I'm steaming. So I put a ban on myself with that Full Tilt "exclusion" option for 3 dayshoping to cool off and come back stronger. What do you guys do to get your minds back to where it was so the next MTT or SnG you play will be one where you can truly focus at the task at hand? Yoga? Movies?
    Honestly, I've just learned to appreciate and acknowledge the flip side of it ( when I'm running well), and as a result running bad doesn't affect me too much. After a while you just kind of learn to evaluate your plays and not your results (I know it sounds cliche but its true lol). But yeah, take time off if you need it. Make sure that your focused when your playing, and try to evaluate whether or not you are making the correct plays at the time instead of caring what the outcome of the hand is.
  10. I likely just check/call the flop for pot control purposes. I hate getting into huge pots in marginal situations oop. As mentioned previoulsy, I would have preferred to re raise preflop and take it down there. The reason I don't like C/Ring the flop is because your risking a huge portion of your stack in WA/WB spot. If he calls, it makes the turn and river pretty awkward, and you still don't have much of an idea of where you stand.

  11. I likely fold as well. I doubt that both players hold an A with with worse hands than yours. I put re-reraiser on range of TT+, AK. The fact that it IS a 4.40 though, and with its top-heavy pay structure, I might be wiling to go out for a chance at having a nice chip stack for the FT.

  12. Depending on reads, I'm either jamming or folding here. Calling isn't an option for me, since I don't want MP2 and MP3 along for the ride, and villain's considerably short. Most of the time I will jam here, since I'll assume that MP2 and MP3 will fold to an isopush and hence there will be enough dead money in the pot to justify it.

  13. Switching back to cash games from multitabling $6 SNG's. Stopped playing poker for about a month, so trying to get back into some sort of playing routine. At the moment, single tabling $50 NL just to get comfortable with the play, but will hopefully be running my usual 4 tables in a few days time. Of course, jumping from $10 NL to $50 NL is kind of a leap, but the play isn't that much significantly better surprisingly (or maybe I just don't remember how bad $10 NL was lol)Goals:1) Play 7.5k hands at $50 NL2) +$750 (~10PTBB/100 hands)

  14. Call. From my limited experience, this bet could be any 8, maybe two pair, but usually ISN'T a full house. I won't pretend to know what he was thinking handing out a 12x pot sized bet, but most players would tend to try and extract value of their full house. I've seen AA or KK pull a massive all in preflop in hopes of getting called, but I don't usually see this postflop with a strong hand. I call everytime in this spot.
