Re: live $6/12 - 2nd nuts - when to stop raising

I have never seen a 6-bet river where the 2nd nuts is winner. That said, it's nearly impossible to believe villain has KK here.

Also, remember that from HIS perspective, KK isn't the nuts, JJ is....

Re: A quick checkup.

What is my read on me (i.e. my image)?

If it's at least somewhat tight, I raise 1-3. In #4, it depends on what kind of passivity we can expect from UTG postflop. He likely has a better hand than...

In LA this would be an easy value bet, but there are plenty of people in Vegas who will check-fold hands like K8 on this river.

Re: Review, Advanced Limit Holdem Strategy (Tanenbaum)

I reread my original post after reading yours and think I overstated things a bit--particularly with the phrase "crazy action player."

To be precise, Barry's text defines the Illusion of Action as...

Review, Advanced Limit Holdem Strategy (Tanenbaum)

I just finished reading this book and thought I'd post some thoughts.

As preface, I confess to a personal bias, having been an occasional student of Barry Tanenbaum’s through the years. Without...

More tales of silly/stupid LA players (LC)

This is a share my story/just for fun post.

Playing 6/12 at Hollywood Park, I'm seated next to a guy who claims to have been in the 40/80 game "all night" (which itself is odd because it's 8:00...

Re: Again, my river play is poor

Bet if you think you can safely fold to a raise (which I think you can, unless the players are unusually tricky). If you'd feel compelled to pay off a raise, then check.

Re: Live 6/12: A4s from the BB

I am in the bet/fold the river camp...because it is close... and whenever it is close I bet, and I'm stunned by what they call with. This assumes you can safely fold to a raise, which is pretty safe...

Re: Potential 2+2 Books: Short-handed NLHE, Heads-up NLHE, and PLO

I am very curious about this since, IMO, the PLO and HU-NLHE books would have difficulty finding an audience.

Re: Bankrolling 17 year old kid

Assuming it's serious...has your kid asked you for a $1,000 bankroll? Is this something he wants, or you want? Does he like to play HU SNGs?

Re: Fun w/ K8o

Apparently, I am Mr. Weak-Tight.

I fold PF. Play flop same way. Check turn planning to fold if action is check-bet-raise or check-check-bet.
