Re: Would you consider laying this down?

[ QUOTE ]
Assuming all parties get the money in here,against AQ AND 2pr/lower set the equity for KK here is like 25-26%. But that's quite the parlay to convince yourself to fold.

Re: NL 50- Overpair in BVB battle

The stats Villain has generated so far aren't so aggressive, but that river card is both a genuine scare card and also the kind of card that many, many players love to bluff (and bluff-raise).

I'm...

Re: Turboturd Turn Card

Aggravating spot. If we could trust your opponents to read your hand as the strong one you've been representing and one that you don't plan to bet-fold, then I think we could bet-fold with...

Re: NL25 JJ line check

The flop and turn look good to me. I'm not sure what's best on the river. But I'm pretty sure I would check too. Our unknown Villain could be one of those players who is in love with the...

Re: 50NL TT on the 8-high board against AI and cold-call

CO's cold-call of BB's raise is worrisome in theory, but given his stats and your read, I think it's time to push.

BB's raise is in itself a concern, but he's a short-stack, and who knows what the...

Re: 10NL Overpair vs 2 players with action on flop

UTG's trappy flop line does look a lot like a set, but you're getting better than 2:1 at this point with a strong overpair, so I'd be going all-in.

I would be expecting to lose, though.

Re: Too Aggressive w/OESD?

It seems all right. You could be best on the flop (the 10-cent bet and the calls of the bet hardly tell us anything), and if you're not, well, it's possible the big raise will at least will clean up...

Re: I fold trips on the river

Well, you were probably beat.

I'm not sure about the river checkraise. I mean, if Villain has an ace it's probably better than yours, and if he doesn't, then, well, you're counting on him to...

Re: 50nl 337bb Deep

It would be useful to know in what ways CO sucks and how Button has been playing against him. Has Button been 3-betting him light, as far as you know?

I hate hands like this one, because after...

Re: $10NL 6max - Top pair middle kicker facing flop bet - Action?

The calldown seems reasonable. Villain isn't putting a lot of pressure on you; probably he's either milking a better king or has something like ATo and just keeps hoping you'll fold.

Why not just bet $20-25 on the flop instead of over betting your entire stack? [I am thinking there is $30 in the pot on the flop]

Re: TPGK c/min raise and further street pressure

If you lost, then this is one of those irritating hands where Villain took a trappy line and it worked. But I don't see a fold anywhere.

But if Villain had just checkraised the flop to $3 or $4,...

Re: Trips Facing Possible Flush/Straight

I would call the river. Villain's pair + draw, for instance, might have rivered two pair, and for that matter, he could just have A6 or something. Who knows what a shorty is ever up to? And this...

Re: 25 NL... top 2 facing river shove

Villain's play sure is consistent with QJ, so that river raise puts you in an aggravating spot. (Also, hands like A7 and 87 can't be ruled out.)

I call, I guess, hoping for T8 or A8 or KJ or...

Re: Couple of Spots against Bad Lag/Maniac

Interestingly, since you folded hands 2 and 4 and Villain mostly just called in hands 1 and 3, we can't really see how much of a maniac he is.

Hand 2: I know your hand is ahead of Villain's...

Re: Jq from bb - 25nl

I'm not sure how to interpret the Button open-limp from this tight player, but when Villain calls the flop, I'm thinking PP, Jx, or a distrustful ace-high. There is some chance too that Villain has...

Re: KK c/c till river

I think it's worth a bet. If Villain just has a busted flush draw, he'll probably fold it, but he might call with Tx, QsXs, a worse PP, or 6sXs. He also might fold some pairs (especially the weak...
