  • I'd think when villain check/raises this turn, you're probably up against AQ minimum - very likely KJ or TT. Sometimes people wait for a safe turn card to make a move with a big hand. You never know. I'd go with sets and the KJ (obv). If you fee…
  • I'm in.
  • You probably need to look at your notes before you get into a pot with these players, and remember your adjustments. Obviously you can't suddenly look at a note card or your phone in the middle of a hand. I'm thinking that you need to condense y…
  • MatthewTagliaferri said Play with pokerstove to figure out how much to widen your value 3betting range. Example: KQs vs. a 25% range is exactly a 51.6% - 48.3% favorite. AJs is up around 57% I also like calling often with position and trying so…
  • Last time I played in New Mexico, I got myself a mini clipboard and just took notes openly on my opponents. Nobody cared. Do an amazon search for "pilot kneeboard". I was actually recording the hand history for every hand played at the table - bu…
  • CruelUltimatum said TDF said Just keep doing range analysis and equity calculations. At some point after you've done enough of them you will just "know" answer at real time especially for extreme cases (like super low SPR). I feel like this is …
  • Claire said Yeah, people don't know how to look at their cards. You have to use your right hand to lift and left hand to cover the left side. The commonly method where you lift up the corners with one hand exposes them to the player to your left. …
  • If he snap-called you, you probably should have bet a little more. I'm not sure if the turn semi-bluff check-raise is a good idea -- it doesn't make a lot of sense for you to do this with a value hand. Leading out would be better, no?
  • Bad players never should theoretically have an advantage, regardless of stack size. However, they can cut down their relative disadvantage against good players by reducing the effective stack size so they have fewer streets to play. In this game, …
  • I think we're all wired to look for patterns, even when patterns may or may not be present. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias
  • I have sort of the same problem as you, Wendy. I have a very tight and conservative style -- however, I haven't had to adjust yet because my opponents for home games and low stakes 1/2NL are still bad enough to pay me. From what I've seen on LATB,…
  • I'd just fold JJ here - it's too likely that V1 has a hand good enough to 4-bet here, unless he's one of those weird guys who plays a polarized range for a EP raise (like, he raises AA, KK, QQ and suited connectors, but never AK or AQ).
  • Check/calling and then leading the turn would probably look very weird to a lot of people. Against the $600 stack, hope she has 8x and just won't fold - raising at any point and getting stacks in is probably right. It's weird to describe someone …
  • The board is 4326 -- read your hand from your opponent's perspective. You could have easily flatted preflop with A5, 54, 65, 44,33,22,66,55 and now have a straight or a set. His turn bet/3-bet is telling you that his hand is doing JUST FINE vs. yo…
  • From the way the hand played out, villain could have: I can't imagine him having 99 played this way. Too strong on the flop, too weak on the river. 44, JJ, AJ, AK, AQ - somehow putting you on AA all of a sudden and deciding to pot-control the riv…
  • Oh, I totally misread the hand. thought you had AJ and wondered why anyone would fold 2pair to a donk bet.
  • What buy-in level is this? Also, you probably need to hang around playing 1/2NL a bit to see all the weird crap people do. The donk-lead w/ A7o on the AJx mono board would seem pretty standard "bet to see where I'm at". Hand 4: I imagine you're g…
  • TDF said Thehammah said I have a pretty good iphone add that will calculate range equity against my hand I just need to use it alot more during my sessions when I am not sure. 1. What's its called? 2. In my casino people get banned when caught …
  • Bart said Hope you liked the new white out feature. I realized I screwed it up on one of the hands but more of these coming. Bart I think if you're going to do the white-out, you'd need to wipe out the equity calculations as well.
  • Villain is possibly tilting and seems like a bad lag. I say let him keep trying to bluff us by calling the flop. If we're lucky, he'll spaz out on the turn and shove. If he checks or bets, we can likely bet/raise the turn given that he doesn't li…
  • I'd imagine that someone w/ a set or small flush would check/raise slightly more to potentially charge you to draw at a single large club. The remaining explanations are: 1. He's luring you in with the flopped nut flush - possible, but I think Wen…
  • Doesn't bluff + fast plays => he has 87? This is a really sick and bizarre hand.
  • Cool! Can't wait to see you plan on LATB again

  • Hand 1: Seems like a really weird way to play a value hand if you had one - your hand makes virtually no sense at all. I suppose if he's the squeamish type, perhaps a super-large bet on the river (like $300+) might get him to fold everything except…
  • My guess is that V2 has KJ, KT, MAYBE KQ. Probably not KK as most people 3bet that. AK is likely also. I think raising for immediate value is good, dont want a lot of bad turn cards to kill our action vs made hands. Plus if V1 calls, we can be fai…
  • AlexBenjamen said I find it difficult to believe that he would call your big raise on flop with AK on a 9c7d4c board where you had Ace of clubs. His hand looks a lot more like QQ/JJ on the flop. The problem is that he bet/called the all in on the …
  • whatsyourplay? said My thinking during the hand was that he can play sets, QJ and some combo draws KhTh, JhXh, Th9h, etc. like this. If the board was rainbow, I'd strongly consider flatcalling, but I don't want to give his draws another card. Also…
  • 6 outs => 48/6 = 8 8-1 = 7 You need 7:1. It's a borderline break-even call. Call if you like variance. Fold if you're a weenie like me. I think raising back would be a disaster, he probably has a weirdly played overpair. I can't imagine som…
  • TDF said I would 3bet flop. Yes, most likely you will lose other callers and get HU but you're deep and I think you get more value by stacking SB then by playing multiway pot. SB has lots of sets, 2pairs, pair+OESD in his range also this sort of …
  • If you want an example of what happens when you play "fit or fold" without being aggressive preflop, watch the 3/22/2013 episode of live at the bike and see how other players take advantage of the loose-passive player. Also, when the same passive p…
