  • Your thinking is good on that 98s hand that you want it multiway, but you really want to be in position with a hand like 98s multiway. If you flop a draw you can try to steal if checked, you can take free cards if you want etc. If you hit the draw y…
  • That specific hand as people said you should probably fold 98s utg or possibly limp. In bad low stakes games you might get multiple calls and it's hard to play. In tougher games you might open 98s sometimes for deception purposes but at low stakes n…
  • I think it partially comes down to personal preference/style/mental quirks. There are some guys I see who seem to be decent players that never move tables and never even seat change. There are other guys who table hop and always try to follow the…
  • As Wendy said I'd CR a limped pot with a big draw like that for FE. Sometimes though you can lead to build up a pot and get called by worse draws. If I get min raised by a drunk fish I probably just call because the guy isn't going to fold if you hi…
  • Did I miss stack depth here? I'm assuming you're pretty deep. I'd still bet because the TP can call with a ton of hands - there are a lot of pair + straight draws, flush draws etc that will call you. I don't know this guy Mike, but if he has a…
  • If villain has AA/KK/AK bottom set actually has 72% equity on this board simply because you block combos of AA/QQ so AK/KK is more likely. I actually think a bet/bet/bet line here is often better than going for a CR. You might even get calls from…
  • If villains in your game are really playing that crazy and raising huge with any TP you're lucky because your game is amazing. The obvious adjustment is to not fold TPTK in that spot even though you're very deep. Especially in position if you are su…
  • Try to watch hands you're not involved with. You can pick something fun to test yourself. You can look for tells and live reads. You can try to guess exact hands. Think what you'd do if you called the PFR with various hands. It's important to sta…
  • Turn pot should be $116 right? I still think we could bet a little more on the flop and on the turn. If villain has a total whiff - something like pocket 10's - he's not calling anyway. If he has a hand like AQ he's probably stacking given the J8…
  • Thanks for the comments. I actually called and villain says "just a ten" and holds like he's going to muck and I feel kinda gross. He actually had J : T :c: so he called my flop bet with 2 random overs and picked up a gutshot. I was actuall…
  • Chris napncrash said he's 75% to come also.
  • I thought I would get called ott by a lot of pocket pairs and possibly a hand like a three. You'd expect him to raise trips a lot otf just because he has trips. If he does call with ace high I'm probably not getting paid off otr anyway unless he imp…
  • I didn't see the action on the first hand and the guy who lost stood up. I was pretty confident in my live tell that he didn't really want to call. If the guy had a9 or something I think he calls much quicker. It was also on the turn. When it …
  • Unless he showed down that hand where the guy had trip J's and he had total air I'm going to give him credit and fold. There's a big difference between cbet bluffing or opening light and min raising, then shoving river against a guy who could eas…
  • I would still bet a little more on this flop because I think you're basically getting called by any ace, any flush draw or open ended whether you bet $30 or possibly as much as $45. If the guy is really check/raising hands as weak as gutshots on …
  • One problem we have is unless villain is doing this with a bare low flush draw we only really dominate 78, 76 or 86cc. He's probably never folding any set or top 2. I don't have my phone to stove equity vs draws but I imagine vs Axcc and combo draws…
  • Depends what you mean by "get up." If I'm just running really bad and I have a bad image I'll sometimes change tables just to mix it up and clear my image. Sometimes if I'm on a bad run and I get very deep and feel uncomfortable about getting …
  • Talked to Bart tonight - forgot that the NCAA Championship game is Monday at 9 so Chickies and Petes or other sports bars are probably going to be crazy packed. Just a personal issue - can someone give me a ride from the Casino to the restaurant …
  • I will be there for the Parx thing Monday night. A or b. I don't have a car Just fyi I'm at borgata till sat night. Watching Bart play some kind of limit game from afar but don't want to bother. If anyone is here and wants to hang out sat.…
  • You need to think through hands more IMO and figure out what you're trying to do. JTs plays well multiway because it makes the maximum number of straights and all your straights will be the nuts. Often if you do hit a straight, your opponent will…
  • Being OOP preflop hurts a lot. You have good relative position which is the only thing that saves you. If we were OTB it helps a lot to get max value when we hit our draws. Even if we manage to overflush someone, we'll have to either donk which k…
  • Villain dependent. I definitely think we can raise flop given that he limped in LP. If villain called turn quickly I'd probably give up. You beat draws now that you paired anyway. Vs nittier regs who tank/call turn I would bet river b/c they'll f…
  • I would raise small on turn. If villain has a weak hand he's probably not paying off a large river bet anyway. If he has a draw like JT or something he's going to call a turn raise but probably won't pay off river anyway. I will say that at least…
  • Is anyone interested in hanging out pre 4/7 at Borgata? I know Bart is going to be playing the OE game so he might not have time, but if anyone is around and wants to grab dinner or a beer we could have an informal meetup as well.
  • I think your PFR was too small and missed value. It's only 3 ways but everyone is suspicious when the straddle raises and I think yo ucan get away with raising to like $40 and still get called. As played I probably lean towards a fold vs normal r…
  • Think about it this way. Villain never has 5x. The only hand you lose to is 88. There are 3 combos of 88 with one on the board. If you can find 3 combos of AA/KK/QQ in his range then your play is +EV since there is dead money there. I think he…
  • I'm confused. Didn't you hit a flush OTT? I'm guessing the turn was not a diamond and you didn't hit? If the guy is a semi-thinking regular I seriously doubt he's turning trip aces into a bluff to rep a flush and bluff you off of I suppose a bett…
  • Vs bad players as UPFS said I think you just can't always fold flops like this with AA because there's such a spazz factor for 1 street where guys might make a really stupid donk with JT or QQ or something and check it down. Just want to clarify,…
  • I think showing kings here is a mistake. Not a small mistake but a massive mistake. One of the worst things you can do is let rec players know that you're able to make folds in big pots. If just one time a guy sees that and takes a shot at you in…
  • I am definitely up for that Monday at Parx. Tuesday at Parx they do have I believe a 100-200 or perhaps 200-400 or larger mix game. From what I understand that the big mixed game goes at Borgata during the weekends and Parx on like Tuesday/Wednesday…
