  1. I'll be the first to quote HOH. "I'm not good enough to fold KK and neither are you." There just isn't enough play in these MTT to justify folding KK.
  2. Weekend action at Mohegan is OK, but still short of Foxwoods. The nice thing about MS is that the poker room is still pretty new with MUCH better customer service for the players. But Foxwoods has more action, better dealers, and more tourneys if that's your thing.
  3. I play pretty nitty on the 1/2 tables, but I really think this is KK or AA a high percentage of the time. The important question is what your table image has been like. You've got a big stack for 1/2 so I'm assuming you've been playing pretty aggro. If so, there's a good chance he was counting on you popping it with any reasonable hand after he flatted the utg raise. He got the spwetard on the button on then put in the raise to keep you and spew in the hand. With AK I'd expect a bigger rasie to at least shut you out.On the flop he knows she's all in and that's a great flop for AA and KK and af
  4. Scotty is a textbook definition of a functioning alcoholic. The behavior can go on for years because such people are usually extremely successful at high pressure careers, and can be very charming much of the time. In an odd way this could be the best thing for him. Since the airing there have been a at least a couple of reporters writing that this was behavior they'd witnessed from Scotty many times in the past that the cameras didn't catch, or ESPN chose not to show because Scotty was a popular draw. Last night it couldn't be hidden. Hopefully Scotty will be forced to take a long hard look a
  5. Well, with the JT flop, he's calling with 2 overs, but probably checking a missed turn. On the flop it's still not a hand I want to put a lot of money in with, which is why i should have folded pre.
  6. Sorry, bad convert. he bet $25 into a $5 pot.
  7. Villain has been min rasing every hand and playing fairly loose post. Button likes to limp and call the minraises. I know it's a questionable call pre, but knowing how this scenario has played out so many times I know I'll get 6 to 1 with sooooted cards.PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FlopTurnRiver)CO ($9.15)Button ($10.10)SB ($84.75)Hero ($42.75)UTG ($31.75)MP ($34.95)Preflop: Hero is BB with J, 3. 3 folds, Button calls $0.25, SB raises to $0.5, Hero calls $0.25, Button calls $0.25.Flop: ($1.50) T, J, 9(3 players)S
  8. Pretty sure that was sarcasm, but I didn't call off with it, I raised with it. Correct sarcasm is always funnier.

  10. I'd been on the table for a while and villain had been entering every pot for an hour and calling and raising with any 2. stacked two folks with bottom pair.PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FlopTurnRiver)CO ($25)Button ($6.20)Hero ($28.35)BB ($25)UTG ($44.50)MP ($65)Preflop: Hero is SB with K, K. 1 fold, MP calls $0.25, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.5, 1 fold, MP calls $1.25.Flop: ($3.25) 8, 6, T(2 players)Hero bets $3, MP raises to $7.25, Hero I'm torn, it's a coordinated board but he's done this with bottom pair a lot
  11. But in all fairness he's playing that hand that way in the face of a $20 preflop raise so he's trying to drive out draws and hoping to get action from an overpair if the original raiser was strong and puts him on the draw.In this hand the villain doesn't have a great reason to believe that he's up against a big overpair and would be less inclined to play it that way, so I don't think this example gives us much reason to eliminate a set from his range. Now Acid will tell me why I'm wrong.
  12. Totally agree with 3 betting preflop. In a live 3/6 game you just HAVE to play top set strong, capping if possible. People will call with so much and you stand to have the best hand throughout much of the time with a redraw to a boat that always gets paid off because of the odds. An ugly run-on sentence, but you get my point.
  13. Making it into Acid's sig may be my single greatest poker moment....I'm gonna go kill myself.
  14. The thing about Acid's replies is that the information makes me feel much smarter, but the delivery somehow make me feel really stupid. You are of course correct sir.
  15. The formula I usually use for a raise is 3xbet plus the pot. Too much usually?
