  • Thanks for the info, though I can't see your screen shot. I just confirmed its $3 + 2.95% for cc buy ins.
  • @MSK yes, just asking if others would have bet the flop otf as I did. Re-raising on the flop makes sense, thx.
  • Thanks for the comments. My question really wasn't as much on the all-in turn call as how I got to that point. Should I have bet the flop? What about the turn bet sizing?
  • Sorry everyone, really f***** this one up--both turn and original holdings were wrong. Now fixed. I had a wrap and 2nd nfd on flop...
  • Thanks @Dusty, sorry about that. Fixed in OP.
  • Apr 21, 7:20pm CDT...I'm trying to buy a piece. It's saying there is $1351 left available for staking, but when I select any of the available amounts from the drop-down menu, I get an error message at the top saying that my amount would overfund the…
  • I'm interested. I play $1/3 in home games in TX, with occasional forays into $2/5 at Oklahoma casinos. Looking for ways ti improve.
  • I've been experimenting with this same approach, I'm glad you posted. I like dontfeedthenits's logic on WHY to do so. I've basically decided that my edge against a fair number of players at my usual game is so big that I need to give myself more opp…
  • Bart, I have to go with Dan Singer on this one. For the last three months at least, as soon as I hear you say, "Caller in the 917, you're on," I think, "Oh, it's Dan Singer calling in again!"
  • ConlanMA, please help me understand realizable equity. I get that playing oop reduces realizable equity, but couldn't that be an argument for 3-betting, ie, I can't realize my equity with A7cc oop very well, but if I 3-bet it, I can win the hand mor…
  • Two things: 1) The merits of 3-betting A7cc here is actually only a secondary issue of this post. Let me make up two other scenarios that will get at my primary question. Scenario 1: We 3-bet 99 and are heads up vs same opener. Flop is Q74ss. Your…
  • ChiliPalmer, thanks for the tip on games in Ventura. By complete coincidence I was headed to the area this weekend and happened to see your post here Thursday night. I had no idea there were any poker opportunities in the area. I managed to squeeze …
  • Perhaps I mischaracterized the villain by adding the part that he can play tricky. This is NOT that time. He's approaching full blown-tilt and is basically getting involved in as many hands as possible preflop to get lucky. He probably has close to …
  • @Beauregard--results posted from All In or Overplay. Thank for keeping me honest. For those of you not liking the 3-bet preflop, what's the bottom of your value 3-bet range in this hand? Please include the lowest suited ace you would 3-bet. Some …
  • Thank you, everyone, for your replies. At Beauregard's request, I'm posting the results. I t's funny how hard it is to be in objective in poker. When I first played this hand, I thought it was such a cooler and was cursing my luck, but within a f…
  • This hand reminds me of your bustout him from a WSOP tourney last year when you got it in with AQ on a QTX flop after multiple bets on the flop vs an old guy UTG and ran into QT. it seemed to me in that hand – and in this one – that you're leveling…
  • I'm happy with all of the discussion this hand generated! Makes me feel better about posting it in the first place. One clarification about villain readers wouldn't necessarily know: this villain basically has no turn check-raises in him as playe…
  • Just to clarify: I did not limp my hand pre-flop. I called a raise from UTG by a tight player. I appreciate the feedback everyone. The reason I posted this is that I was going back-and-forth between checking back and betting using a lot of the sa…
  • I got back on this thread specifically to see if anyone was discussing Deeb's analysis from the 2+2 pokercast. I think it's cool because of it's one of the few times on these hand analysis types of hands where we can actually hear the other side of …
  • I played the Monster Stack last weekend and found myself out of tune with a lot of the game flow, betting lines, etc. Even if a lot of the lines tournament players take don't make sense to cash game players, I find it still helps me to know what the…
  • Event #28: MONSTER STACK $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em $1,500 buy-in 6/13/2015 387th, $4563
  • A few weeks late to this discussion as I just finished the podcasts. My only issue with the hand is your call-off on the turn. Your reasoning for calling the turn shove seems inconsistent with your read and information on villain. You don't think…
  • Thanks everyone for the comments. I decided to for a check-raise on the turn as I thought I'd have more fold equity then vs on the flop. I actually got everyone to fold except for the player in UTG who snapped me off with 98. Didn't feel too bad abo…
  • Agree with Arenzano that higher draws and boats are very unlikely. For villain to have a dominating draw, he would have to a) not play it fast on the flop; b) somehow all the sudden fall so in love with it that he 3bets over a bet and a raise on the…
  • I actually use your method: combination of Evernote and a Google spreadsheet. I've dabbled with some poker income apps, but I didn't like being forced into recording my information in specific ways.
  • It sounds like you are asking for confirmation on a soul read. Are their players for which we can sometimes narrow them down to a single hand? Absolutely, I think so (def players like this in my player pool) but that's typically because we have a lo…
  • Thanks everyone for the feedback. Floppedawheel hit the nail on the head about the nature of the post, which is that it "felt" weak just to call off, as I think we all are in the business of typically playing our draws to get folds. Clarificat…
  • I agree your suggested way would be more useful than mine. The problem is that the data required for your graph can't be gleaned from the tournament structure sheet, so if we're trying to devise a general tournament strategy before a tournament, we …
  • I don't have a strong opinion one way or another on this bustout hand, though I was amused by the blowback you caught for it. I do wonder about your response to the blowback on this week's podcast, which sounds conveniently revisionist. Let me expla…
  • Here's an issue related to SPR and value-bet sizing, though its different from the original post. There are times in live play where it seems like the only move on the river is to bet all-in because the SPR is so small, ie, for players familiar with…
