Re: 10 + 1 5k : Two spots I butchered post flop

Hand 1: I don't like it. First of I'd raise more pre. I usually 3bet in the neighborhood of 3x the open, but if the open is a min-raise I treat is as a 3xbb open and 3bet accordingly. So I'd make it...

Re: Being reraised less than 3x - general thoughts

Not sure entirely what you're asking either. Reads on SB in the hand you posted? Readless, when I get 3bet small I put the 3bettor on a tighter range. That being said...

Re: Two interesting hands from today\'s $2500 @ Bellagio

Hand 1: AT probably.
Hand 2: I'd flat the raise, unless you read him for being able to 4bet lightly. If that's not the case, and since if we get 4bet we won't really like it, given stacks I think...

Re: Lucky Chances plus fish plus chips equals crazy delicious (TR obv)

Good read, though this probably belongs in B&M right? Anyways, I played a few of the Gold Rush events at LC last week, and the place gives me a headache. Way to many obnoxious people.
