  3. You might think so, but this guy really liked to call. He called and turned over Qc5c.
  4. Villain is 35/12/1.1 over 65 hands. I was more trying to push him off his hand (with a few outs if he called) than value-bet top pair on the turn. I didn't think he was calling a raise on the flop with a J, and thought he would push on the flop if he had me beat there with something like KJ, QT, or 99.

  5. Villain is 77/12/0.54 over 77 hands. He was willing to call almost any bet with almost any 2 cards, but when he raised he usually had some kind of hand.

  6. I was playing at some cash tables on pokerroom when it went down. The money that was on those tables still hasn't been credited back. Lots of people in the chat are complaining about the same thing. It's been down about 5 hours now.
  7. I am inclined to agree that this is probably a fold. That is what I was hoping to confirm by posting the hand. It turned out as well as I could have hoped, with Mhn having QcJd and Pinko having KcJs, making me about 44% to win, well above the percentage I need to call. But I think far too often I will be up against 2 sets of overs that don't share any cards, or at least 1 overpair to make calling the right decision. Thanks for the input.
  8. No way I call here if that's the range I put him on. But I don't think we have to give him that much credit, even though he's calling all-in. He has an M of 2, 1/6 of his stack is in the small blind, and he's facing a push from the CO, who it has been folded around to, and who has an M of 3. I was thinking of a range more like any pair or any 2 cards over 10.
  9. Yes, I was in the big blind. Sorry, I didn't realize the hand history didn't make that clear. That's how I was getting 2-1.
  10. We were down to the final 3 tables in a mtt that started with 470 players. I didn't have much of a read on mhn719, I had only played 12 hands with him, he had raised 3 pf. His stack was pretty short, and I thought he could be moving in with a wide range of cards. Pinko had been playing tight, but his stack was very short and he had just taken a beat. I was getting around 2-1, and was hoping they would both have high cards and have some of each other's outs. My stack was also getting short, and I thought it was a good spot to gamble. Thoughts on the call?***** Hand History for Game 434517
  11. I'm just on party at this point. SN = given1982
  12. I've been playing poker for a little over 2 years, after seeing all the tourneys on tv and watching one of my law school classmates play $100NL on party during class. I'm somewhere between a losing and break-even player. I'm not that good at cash games because I tilt too easily, and not that good at sngs and mtts because of my weak/tight tendencies. I deposited the minimum of $50 on party 6 times and lost it all, and have been playing off the last $50 for around a year. I ran it up to $600, then back down to $200, then back up and down ad nauseum by playing out of my bankroll.I've read lot

  14. Someone correct my math. It seems like if you have 2 cards of the same color and bet on the flop to be all the other color, the odds are (26/50)*(25/49)*(24/48)=15600/117600=1/7.54, which would make it a winning bet anytime you have 2 cards of the same color if they're paying out 8-1. But obviously Party wouldn't let you make a bet where they didn't have the advantage. What's wrong with my math?
