  • In the games I play in (2/3, $100-$300) most of the people who buy in short don't understand SPR. They'll call pre with draws, small PPs, sometimes floating Ax, but will fold to the turn bet. I've seen (quite a few) do absolutely silly things like …
  • What platforms does the Pokerbros app support?
  • All the L.A. based cardroom are closed (Commerce, Bike, Hustler, Hollywood Park, The Gardens). News is saying that one of the dealers at Commerce tested positive (https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-03-14/california-card-rooms-casinos-clos…

  • Interesting case study here on what Singapore did in preparation: https://www.wired.com/story/singapore-was-ready-for-covid-19-other-countries-take-note/ There is hope.

  • Also - just to clarify - Villain is *not* the straddler, correct? Is Villain EP player who called the straddle? I'm with @kaboojie on this. Can't fold against a preflop caller. Sure, 87 gets there, but IMHO, it's way more likely that EP calls the…

  • The 7x open is not uncommon here in L.A. at the 2/3 level, especially on weekends. Standard raise would typically be 5-7x. As played, I think the flop bet is a little large. You might say that you are charging the draws to continue, but the draws…
  • Thanks @Piggy. The thought actually crossed my mind, but I think in these low stakes games, we need to be careful about giving our opponents too much credit. Many of these guys who buy in for table minimum don't understand a whole lot other than wha…
  • Steveo76 wrote: » I am folding this garbage pre-flop, but as played, I like a c/r to about £150 setting up for a shove on a clean turn card. Agree with the preflop fold, but are you getting called when you make that huge check raise? In …
  • So what would you do playing 1/2 with bottom set on this kind of run out? I think there is a lot of AQ here. Betting has been weak, so it would be tough to put you on a set. I'd be calling. If he has AA, QQ, 99 or 77, so be it.
  • @Jonesey - I feel your pain. One of the big mistakes I make is assuming that these low stakes opponents are thinking at our level. To say that "My hand looks like AQ to the villian" assumes that they are aware of what that looks like. Despite all th…
  • Mid year check in. How am I doing against my goals? (1) Re-commit myself to the forums and post one hand a week (will read others). - Well. I read every week and post every now and then. At least I'm not ignoring the forums. Reality is I j…
  • Jonesey wrote: » When the math/pot odds say call but your read/intuition says fold .... Believe me - I get it... And sorry - my combo work is a bit off - 3 combos of KK and 3 combos JJ beat us. 18 hands we're ahead, 6 hands we're behind.
  • Hand 1: Are you calling preflop to try to set mine? If so, listen to Bart's 15/25/35 podcasts. You're not quite deep enough to set mine. As played, preflop pot is $44 (less drop). Flop pot is now $88 ($44 pre, $22 bet and a call). On the turn, I …
  • Would Villian play AA this way? Do you have a feel for how wide he 3 bets in position? If he is typical and only 3 bets QQ+, AK preflop, there are 6 combos of AA and 12 combos of AK that we're ahead of. There are 2 combos of KK 2 combos of JJ tha…
  • Try not to be results oriented. If he shoved the turn are you really going to fold for $68 more?

  • Thanks all. I jammed river. Villain goes in the tank for a long time - 2 to 3 minutes. Eventually he calls with AhTh. It was one of those "oh shit" moments when I bet the turn and got smooth called.
  • Hmm. It's tough to make hero folds at these stakes. What does he have here that beats us? I'm thinking of a flop range raising range something like: AJ, KJ, QJ, JT, J9, J8, 76, 54. If he's a typical 1/3 player, he probably flats sets, but we can …
  • Thanks all. My thought was that the min 3 bet was TT-QQ, AK, AQ maybe KQs. He continues on a flop that shouldn't hit my range very hard. Checking the turn when the flush come in means either he has something with showdown value, or he has a diamond …

  • Tell us a little more about the Villain. Would he raise QQ+ to only $10 preflop? Would he also raise 88 or 33 to $10 preflop? What about a hand like T9s? AJ? What in his range is he continuing with in this fashion?
  • Why not fold pre (honestly interested in your reasoning)?
