#3684524 Ako Vs 2 Limpers

First, Good Luck getting any responses. Unfortunately, the strat section died years ago here. :(

Second, when posting in forums, don't post the hand results right away. It can sometimes skew the thinking/rationalization of others posting responses.

Here's why in my thinking:

PF: Good size raise

Flop: Little too high on the raise, but I'm more concerned with the 2 spades, and the min bet and the min raise. In my experience in the micro-stakes, guys will call PF with suited cards ALOT, especially calling stations. I always tend to be more on the cautious side in these situations when there are 2 suited cards on the flop, especially when in position and see a min bet and min raise. I'm still raising here, but maybe .35-.40

Turn: Paired board not good in this situation. When both of them min played the flop then called your huge raise, they generally will have something. Either they are flush drawing here, or they made a pair. In the micros, some people think bottom pair is solid, so seeing the board paired could mean someone just won the lotto with a set now. Once again, UTG just min-bet which is ridiculous. MP makes a goofy raise. Should have just put UTG all-in. If it were me in this spot as played, I would have just re-raised to put UTG all-in. He's either calling the other third of his stack, or folding. MP still has enough behind to just call and hope he gets his flush. If MP would have 4-bet back at you, then it's decision time, but kinda doubt that would have happened. Here I think you should have just went for pot control, and kept it lower in this case.

River: Without reading anymore, I knew you were screwed. It happens.... That is why generally I tend to play these types of boards cautiously. You still want to be a bit aggressive because you have position, but watch your bet sizing.

Again, just my .02c worth ...

There are far more reasons for people to dislike Adelson and what he stands for than just his hypocritical position on online gaming

Thank you, sir! I would obviously have loved to win bracelet #2, but I'm pretty happy with second place - especially in a game that's far from my best game.

#3652968 Adelson Has About 24 Experts Working Nearly Full Time To Ban Net Gambling

Oddly enough the last two times I was in Vegas I stayed at Venetian, the first time was awesome, the second was a nightmare as they wouldn't honour the deal the poker room had set up for rooms (hats off to the poker room for sorting it out way after the fact!). So now all this crap from Adelson and I'm happy to say I'm not staying there for my WSOP trip this year...

#3635521 It Has Been A Long Time

Posted Potomophobia on 15 December 2013 - 09:34 PM

Hi Bob,

I've tried Party Poker and WSOP so far.

I had put myself on the waiting list for Party to try it as soon they launched. They sent me an evite to play the weekend before Thanksgiving during the testing for the NJDGE. That was interesting, and somewhat profitable.

There were not a lot of players, I believe that the largest number I saw was about 310. But there were some very nice overlays during the wee hours when the same 4 or 5 of us were playing for a 3 payout in a guaranteed tourney. I made a few dollars, but certainly nothing to retire on. It was fun though.

I started out playing on my PC laptop, then I discovered that they also have downloadable software that runs on a Mac. So I set that up and was really pleased with the way it looked on my 27" iMac. I can easily multi-table 4 games with room to spare. (Brag post)

Pros for Party Poker:

I can play it on my browser and I can download their software for both my Mac and PC.
Reliability of connection is good and improving.
Number of players is growing. Saw 5600+ this evening during the Sunday majors.
They had (I do not know if they still offer them) "achievements" that you could reach that gave you tickets into freerolls that paid tournament dollars. I've done okay with them.

Cons for Party Poker:

The interface is very simplistic. It is designed to appeal to the newcomer that has never played online poker before.
The bugs are still being worked out on connection issues and bonus status as well. (They actually lost a $50 deposit of mine. It took a while, but their support finally did make it right.)
I'm not much of a cash game player, but here is what I've seen. You cannot get a look at any of the tables playing at any buy-in. There is no grid as on Poker Stars listing the tables available, number of players, averages, etc. You have to click on one rectangle that quotes a buy-in and see what you get when you're at the table. There is also only one game dealt, and that is NLH. Current stakes I see range from $0.01/$0.02 to $25/$50.
Again, no games dealt besides NLH.

Pros for WSOP.com

Much better interface. More games spread.

Holdem: NL, PL and limit
Omaha: PL and limit
Omaha HI/LO: PL and Limit
Stud: Limit
Stud HI/LO: Limit

Cons for WSOP

I was gettting disconnected every 20 minutes. They have serious issues with knowing that I am in NJ.
Not many players. No indicator of how many are logged in at any time, but not much action.

I may go back in the future, but it was way too frustrating for the time being.

Oh well, enough for now.

One more complaint I have on both sites is this:

Now way to transfer funds to another player.

I miss STAKES.

I miss Poker Stars.
