Nl Internet Kids And Horse


Recommended Posts

Recently I've been talking to some young, excellent NL players that are trying to learn HORSE... my goodness it's funny! They are so in tune and on the ball with NL, but a simple stud 8 scenario seems so much harder for them to grasp then it should. I'm talking really smart kids, but for some reason they have like a mental block with HORSE. I quiz them from time to time and the answers are often so outlandish I have to hold back my laughter, lol. I guarantee when I'm done with them, though, they'll totally get it. They are already starting to understand the logic behind what I'm saying, but it's stuff I need to tell them or they won't get it on their own. It's fun for me :-)

Daniel,Please dont tap the fish tank.The short handed limit games, along with the HORSE and 8 game games at Stars have been phenomenal.Although I dont play high stakes.

fold, with both a K and a Q showing on board they both can beat your J's unless you are going to raise and take a stab at a 4th or 5th street hoping to catch a 3rd J. don't forget they have 2 hidden cards, which could have a K or Q hidden that beats your J's. or a higher pair like acesI would fold
