Thanks... reason I asked is because I am about 23/12/3ish and I will raise SC's, Axs in EP, so I must be missing raising hands in later positions.

If you raise a top but vulnerable PP pre flop, JJ or TT for example and only get called by BB with no read what do you do in the following spots.

1. Flop A x x, he checks, you bet and he mini-raises

2. Flop A x x, he checks, you bet and he makes a proper raise amount.

3. Flop A x x, he makes a pot lead

4. Same action as 1 but the board is also very drawy A 7 6

5. Same action as 2 but with A 7 6

6. Same action as 3 but with A 7 6

Does anything change if the top card is a Queen or King?

1. How does your family feel about you 'gamblin for a living'?

2. When, if ever, do you cold call a preflop raise on the button with a marginal hand (KJ,KJs,JTs,QJs,small sc's,ATs,AJ, etc.)?

Settle this debate between goofyballr and I about Grunch's current avatar:

In Grunch's avatar, , the children are having an orgy and the Koolaid dude bursts in.

Is it disturbing that the Koolaid dude is bursting in on child orgies, or should we find it reassuring that the Koolaid dude acts as an authority figure to irresponsible sex-crazed children?

Thank you in advance.

1 - my mom supports me because she trusts in my judgement, honestly except for a few other members of my family i dont particularly like,care what most of them think.

2 - when he has a wide raising range/is a bad player.

clearly the avatar is a subconcious cry for help that grunch has some strange attraction to young boys

During my running ice cold, about to leave Party for good stage, I included a 2k hands super LAG monkey tilt stage. In doing this I also discovered that a lot of these check-raises were players taking shots with very little.

1. Does this matter?

2. Should we still not get involved when played back at V unknowns without at least top pair and/or a good draw?

Calling here is probably wrong because it actually won't give you that great a chance to win the tourney. Remember, there are like 10,000 entrants ($10mm prize pool), so aggregating 9 stakes, while it's great, isn't going to give you an advantage that makes it worth flipping a coin right away, imho.
