Nice month teddy.I had a sick ass live session tonight.Bought in for $300 and got down to my last $80 or so all in, twice. Then I ran like Dog. Made some sick calls, mainly in a quad Queens hand later against 2 other all ins. KK vs AK vs QQ. board went Q-K-rag...rag....Queen. That pot alone was over 1200.Cashed out 1676 in 4 -1/2 hours, for a 1376 profit. Burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrp. :club:

chgocubs: idk I tend to do this once a month, and then quit etc. but i'm enjoying it more this time. Def am not 100% eliminating tourneys from my schedule, just more likely that on days like tuesdays/thursdays/fridays which are shitty mtt days, I'll be playing cash instead. Somebody tell me what this graph means in terms of how hard I spewed/how I ran:newgraphiz3.jpgw1744.png

So I was discussing this hand with my dad that he played and he thought that if we were the player with QK reraising was the best move and I wanted to explain to him that although it's not terrible, it's not the best line IMO. Then I went on to explain as to why his play with 99 (we're CO) is incorrect as he said he would play it the same way and just bet more on the river instead, this is what I wrote (starts off with 'if we had KQ'). Thought you guys might find it interesting/have fun laughing at it. Thanks to CitizenErased for helping me out.PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (8 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.comCO ($16.95)Button ($6.25)SB ($24.75)BB ($23.15)UTG ($23.55)UTG+1 ($4.30)MP1 ($29.30)MP2 ($25.40)Preflop:2 folds, MP1 calls $0.25, MP2 raises to $1, CO calls $1, 1 fold, SB calls $0.90, BB calls $0.75, MP1 calls $0.75Flop: ($5) :D, :4h, :D(5 players)SB checks, BB checks, MP1 checks, MP2 checks, CO bets $1.50, 1 fold, BB calls $1.50, 1 fold, MP2 calls $1.50Turn: ($9.50) :club:(3 players)BB checks, MP2 checks, CO checksRiver: ($9.50) :5c(3 players)BB checks, MP2 checks, CO bets $2, 1 fold, MP2 calls $2Total pot: $13.50 | Rake: $0.65Results:MP2 had :ts, :D (one pair, Kings).CO had :3h, :D (one pair, nines).Outcome: MP2 won $12.85Check raising here with QK in't horrible here, and I understand why you would do it, to extract an extra bet from a player and to prevent other cards coming that complete possible draws but I think by check raising I think we are playing scared and folding out a lot of the hands that we can extract value from, like JT, J9/8/Q that stick around here if we just fire out a good C bet and we at the time thin out the number of opponents we may have to showdown to, which we want to with a mediocre hand like QK (not that we really want to push out draw chasers in situations where we have one opponent and they are drawing, remember, we want them to call with the wrong odds, and therefore we profit because statistically they aren't going to hit their cards, it's easy to forget this). If the turn is a blank which most of the time it will be against the thinned out opponents, we can bet out again and get a call from those hands still chasing or a weaker king and extract more value. I think if a safe river follows we should bet but ready to fold to a raise. If the turn is unsafe, we have to exercise more pot control by check calling or even betting amd folding to a raise. If after an unsafe turn we get a bad river for us, we should just be check folding. If however the river is blank we should be checking then folding to a bet or checking then calling, but this is villan dependent.An alternate line is simply checking the flop and then calling a bet (slight risk of a free card here though but unlikely when there are 4/5 players in the hand), if the turn is a blank we can try to extract some value. If not then it's as I described above.So really all that changes in this hand is the possible lines to take on the flop, they all have their pros and cons, but I think we can get the most value out of leading out initially, while raising the chance our winning a show down by getting rid of a couple of opponents. The line taken on the turn and river should remain the same. We have to be prepared to lay the hand down to being played back at, and realise there are plenty of hands that beat us. I think we should still be prepared to fold to raise on the river even if the turn and river have both blanked as our equity is much poorer than you'd think: 540 games 0.005 secs 108,000 games/secBoard: Jd 4d Kh Th 3cDead: equity win tie pots won pots tied Hand 0: 20.000% 13.33% 06.67% 72 36.00 { KQs, KQo }Hand 1: 80.000% 73.33% 06.67% 396 36.00 { KK-TT, AJs+, KJs+, AQo+, KJo+ }However when we are facing a looser opponent we are face with a harder decision because they are seeing the river with a much wider range of hands and may just be playing at us with a lot of hands we beat and it therefore it becomes helpful to have some kind of read on the villan (but notice how our equity is still negative): 1,203 games 0.005 secs 240,600 games/secBoard: Jd 4d Kh Th 3cDead: equity win tie pots won pots tied Hand 0: 47.132% 44.14% 02.99% 531 36.00 { KQs, KQo }Hand 1: 52.868% 49.88% 02.99% 600 36.00 { TT-99, AJs+, KJs+, Q9s+, J9s+, T9s, AQo+, KJo+, QTo-Q9o, J9o+, T9o }Anyway, your actual hand:You shouldn't be betting there with 99. The likelyhood is at least one of them has atleast a jack and are just playing scared. I mean lets take a look at your equity versus the preflop raiser alone (i've given him what I feel is a realistic range): 101,970 games 0.005 secs 20,394,000 games/secBoard: Jd 4d KhDead: equity win tie pots won pots tied Hand 0: 29.307% 28.83% 00.47% 29401 483.50 { 9c9d }Hand 1: 70.693% 70.22% 00.47% 71602 483.50 { 77+, AJs+, KJs+, QJs, T9s, AJo+, KJo+ } Now lets throw everyone else in and their viable hand ranges (this one took an hour to calculate), an almost random hand has more equity: 1,034,102,684,121 games 33242.124 secs 31,108,201 games/secBoard: Jd 4d KhDead: equity win tie pots won pots tied Hand 0: 36.913% 35.65% 01.26% 368669351534 13051212291.64 { 77+, AJs+, KJs+, QJs, T9s, AJo+, KJo+ }Hand 1: 09.261% 09.15% 00.11% 94668757669 1097988381.14 { 9c9d }Hand 2: 22.001% 20.74% 01.26% 214439935984 13067982937.52 { JJ-66, AQs-A4s, K9s+, Q9s+, J9s+, T9s, 98s, AQo-A9o, KTo+ }Hand 3: 16.515% 15.61% 00.91% 161375338719 9411767207.56 { JJ-44, AQs-A5s, K7s+, Q7s+, J7s+, T7s+, 97s+, 87s, 76s, AQo-A6o, K7o+, Q8o+, J8o+, T8o+, 97o+ }Hand 4: 15.310% 14.62% 00.69% 151193971296 7126378093.75 { 22+, A2s+, K4s+, Q6s+, J6s+, T6s+, 97s+, 86s+, 75s+, 63s+, 53s+, 43s, A4o+, K5o+, Q7o+, J7o+, T7o+, 97o+, 87o, 76o, 64o+, 53o+ }Ok so Add in the turn with the other villans viable range on the turn and your equity is 0% 302,400 games 0.141 secs 2,144,680 games/secBoard: Jd 4d Kh ThDead: equity win tie pots won pots tied Hand 0: 75.211% 73.58% 01.63% 222507 4929.67 { 99+, AJs+, KJs+, QJs, JTs, T9s, AJo+, KJo+ }Hand 1: 03.679% 03.23% 00.45% 9769 1357.67 { 9c9d }Hand 2: 21.110% 19.28% 01.83% 58300 5536.67 { TT-88, ATs, KJs+, QTs+, JTs, T9s, 98s, 87s, AJo-ATo, KJo, QJo, JTo, T8o+, 98o }Once we are at the river, assuming our villans are somewhat standard we can narrow down their ranges by how they have played the hand so far (taking out the really big hands here that probably would have made some kind of move for value on the turn): 120,834 games 0.031 secs 3,897,870 games/secBoard: Jd 4d Kh ThDead: equity win tie pots won pots tied Hand 0: 84.005% 81.38% 02.63% 98334 3173.17 { AA, QQ, TT-99, AQs-AJs, KQs, QJs, T9s, AQo-AJo }Hand 1: 02.181% 01.80% 00.38% 2175 460.67 { 9c9d }Hand 2: 13.813% 11.30% 02.51% 13656 3035.17 { 99-88, ATs, KQs, QTs+, T9s, 98s, 87s, AJo-ATo, QJo, T8o+ }Hopefully you'll see the problem with your hand here. If you look at your hand against your opponents possible ranges (which you should always try and establish to some extent, it's usually not going to be so exact), you see that your hand has basically no value here at all. On the river you give them 5 to 1, meaning their hand only has to have 20% equity against your hand and clearly at least one of them is likely it has a lot more than that. My range with the 2nd villan seems to make sense and he folds to your bet. Hopefully this rather thorough explanation will help you out in these kind of situations in the future (took me 6 hours!).
