It's spelled straight.

Bet the flop 100% of the time. $30. Ship the remaining $50 on 100% of turns.

ez game.
I actually disagree.

I like not betting the flop. We have all the aces, there is very little in the way of draws and there is so little behind that just betting half pot twice will get stacks it.

Check and give him a chance to catch up.

Overall in this game I'd just be making these huge pre-flop raises with a wider range, then c-betting all of the time. If villains are calling with 67 and other stuff, they are going to fold flops a lot... we can print money.

And with two half pot bets left I think in general vs bad passive live players betting flop and turn is going to be better than turn and river. There is very little in the way of draws, but that doesn't mean a player won't call with 98 or some random gutter with 2nd pair draws or something. I also think we get calls from 99-QQ that will flat pre.

We print money because they always fold flop.

We flopped the world this hand. I don't see the issue with letting the guy think we are slightly weaker than we are by checking. If he is calling flop with 99-QQ, he is calling turn with 99-QQ. It also gives him some rope to try and push us off our hand.

I believe it's pronounced 'skrait'.


True story

I was playing at the Hard Rock in Tampa. I forget what I had exactly, but we'll just say KK. I bet every street and this one guy called every bet. On the river, he raised all in, and I called. Board was something like 45K59 and he turns over like 67 or 78, and yells "SKRAIT!"

He seemed genuinely surprised when the chips were pushed my way.

I think they're loose passive and will try to take us off our hand less often than they will call with inferior holdings

I see your side tho, we just disagree.

I think giving them another card to make an inferior holding is better in this situation since we practically have this hand locked down.

Really as long as we never fold and all the money is in the middle, I doubt either line is that much different in EV

I played a hand the other day, was the big cash game in town held at the local barbar shop. These donk****s are awful and love to give me their money. I come out a head in the game 94% of the time. I kno this cuz I keep track in a book. Tonite was just dumb tho. I was running really good all nite and these donks kept giving me chips and I had a stack of $500 from my buy in of $80 when I looked down at the red rockets. I hadn't played a hand in two hours so I wanted to make people think I was fed up and trying to steal so I raised to $50. This old **** stares me down and he calls the $50. The floop came 2 7 J and I wanted to look week so I bet $10 and he called and said son I know you are week the turn was a 5 and I said how about now and bet $300 and he said i am pot committed and went all IN! I called him a donk and called the river was the 4 and before I could turn my red rockets over he slammed down 6 and 3 for the strait and said THATS WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT. I thoguth this was rude and I rebought for $40 since It isnt good to rebuy for full 80 when I am tilting.

did I play this rite or was this just bad luck

This thread keeps on giving, just like the OP's mom.

Hi guys, girls 'n others,

I've only just discovered FCP (through reading DN's book on small ball) so thought i'd check it out...

This was the first thread i had the pleasure of reading and probably the only forum thread i've EVER read that has made me laugh so hard i think i may have even pee-ed a little....( was the OP for real or not? I'm still not sure)

From the original wall of text, to the blatant disregard to peoples advice, to pizza delivering limos, to dancing black guys, to hysterical otter references and a few dozen hangmans noose pics, i am truly struggling to step out of the small puddle of piss i've created to actually say anything of any actual importance poker related or otherwise...

I suppose i just wanna say THANK YOU for making my day.....this has to have been the best introduction to ANY poker forum i've ever laid eyes on...

Hopefully i'll see more of you people in the near future....

....so long as all you " Grammar Trolls" can put up with my annoying habit of putting full stops everywhere for no particular reason.....

I just hope the OP continues his " Blog" he seems to have created along the way....Priceless.....will surely need a colostomy bag if he carries on.....

Anywayz glad to meet you all :icon_smile:

"So long and thanks for all the fish"!!
