Re: NL25 - Flopped trips in BB vs Flush

The main reason to call here is that it's a blind-v-blind situation. A few thoughts:

1. Your preflop raise was a bit on the large side. I'd usually raise to either $0.75 or $1 as my standard...

Re: ***THE FORUMS ARE CHANGING THIS SUNDAY OMFG****

Change is ALWAYS bad.

House loses Foreman, Chase, and Cameron and gets three yahoos to replace them -- that's bad.

Frist passes a law replacing America's "don't ask, don't tell" policy towards...

Re: Flopped straight. -> ulgy turn+river

This hand is not good.

Preflop is usually a fold, here. You're going to be OOP against a player who likes his hand and you're holding a weak and easily dominated hand -- I would usually just let...

I'll pretend this is a serious post instead of a troll.

Re: NL25 - KK stack sizes

Preflop is good -- you have the best hand and you want the money in the middle as quickly as possible.

The flop is a shriveler -- you have to cringe every time you see an ace on the flop when you...

Re: NL25 QQ in RR pot, turn desicion

You called preflop intending to get it all-in on a safe flop. Conditional commitment is good poker strategy. Good.

You checked the flop intending (I hope) to fold to a bet. Since the flop...

Re: NL2: Hit the straight on the river, but do you call the push?

You are not allowed to call this turn and fold this river. If villain really is just playing back at you he could be doing this with TT hoping for a fold or 55 hoping for a call. The diamonds are a...

Re: Shocking AK hand, be gentle...

I'm much more unhappy about your flop play than your preflop play.

Preflop is usually bad because AK plays best heads up, suffers badly from RIO, and doesn't do well OOP. A big and punishing...

Re: 10nl: AK 3 way pot

I see little reason to raise the flop.

First of all, the donk-bettor is on our immediate right. If we raise we blow SB out of the pot for sure and we really announce that we've got an ace of some...

Re: NL10 combo draw in multiway limped pot, awkward spot

I would also fold preflop, especially for a raise and especially against a raise from UTG. The only things justifying the call are (1) you have the best position, (2) you have added padding, and (3)...

Re: Poker math quiz: evaluate this hand.

Since this thread seems to have run its course, let me make my own comments to summarize my thinking.

Re: NL40 2 hands for consideration

How does ATC proceed postflop? You said he's super-aggressive preflop and that he c-bets without fail, but after his c-bet is called does he slow down or keep firing? If he keeps firing, I like...
