Re: 5CD: Embarrassing Confession

Last night, PL 5CD 2/4. UTG limps, everyone limps. I'm in the SB and call with 77xxx. UTG draws one, but the button stands pat.

UTG has the button covered, and they both get into a raising war...

Re: 5 Card draw: Aces and four to a flush - what to do?

No.1: Keep the aces. You've got two of the three options beaten, and in the event you're behind to 2 pair, you're 4-1 to improve.

No.2: I'd still draw three because I want to give myself the best...

Re: PS down?

It sounds like something on PS's end. I haven't been able to connect to anything more than the lobby for the last 12-plus hours, and my email to support, which I sent over two hours ago, has yet to...

Is anyone having trouble logging on to PokerStars

Lobby comes up, but connection can't be established. Was that way last night and still is today.

Could it be something on my end? Obviously, my ISP is still working fine, as I'm able to...

Re: Folding pat hand?? 3/6 5cd

The button's play makes no sense. He cold calls a raise, then caps when you make it three bets. If he truly has a pat hand, what's he gaining by cold-calling/standing pat?

That he's playing with...

Re: Bet sizing in PL 5CD

Don't mini-raise pots with "good" hands.

Let's say you're UTG with kings up, the game is 1/2 and you raise to $4. The button and SB call. There's $14 in the pot, giving the BB 7-1 odds -- easily...

Re: Appropriate draw play?

Easy fold, and from the SB as well.

From the BB, at 2.75-1, it's not as bad as it is from any other position because you could pair your ace and that might be the best hand.

Implied odds don't...

Re: 5CD: i play 20k hands, now what? move up, or multi-table?

What we need for 5CD to explode in popularity is a televised final table on ESPN of a yet-to-be-instituted $2,500 PL draw event at the WSOP.

Until then ....

Re: You know you might be a 5CD fish when ...

Methinks I worded this poorly.

Once the villian, ie fishy, sees that I'm drawing 1 out of the blinds, there's absolutely ZERO reason for him to hold a kicker with his AAKxx hand. He's clearly...

Re: Limit 5CD-Standing Pat

The only time I stand pat-bluff is when I've accidentally raised pre-swap with trash and AM NOT RERAISED. Since I never stand pat-bluff with pat hands, my more alert opponents will fold.

Re: 5 CD (limit) -- Guidelines for drawing w/garbage in BB?

While I agree with a lot of what Tom says, I'm loathe to draw 4 if I have two (or even three) unsuited broadway cards, because it invites people to take shots at me. With merely one pair, I'll take...
