Re: PokerStars December TLB race!

Yeah, sorry, McShove. I guess I wasn't clear on my actual question. I understand that 900% is unrealistic (to put it mildly). It looks like a 100%+ stake for just 10% of winnings is a fantastic...

Re: PokerStars December TLB race!

In order for a 10% return to be unfair, wouldn't your expectation have to be greater than 10x buying (plus what they give you for expenses and lodging)? So for a 10k event, with say 1k in extra...

Re: Pokerstars 3+R... completely lost with KK

300 had been getting a bunch of folds early in a $3 rebuy? How strange. Most of the time in one of those, you could just open-shove preflop and get a call or two. In a rebuy like this, I'd...

Re: Funny Realization about the BluffMagCv/SlippyJacks/Imperium/Durrrr

A lot of this crap is hard to find, at least on Stars. Go to their website sometime and find the site map, there's all sorts of FAQs and rules sets for various things. I don't play the other sites,...

Re: Funny Realization about the BluffMagCv/SlippyJacks/Imperium/Durrrr

At least on Stars, buying stacks is not allowed. From their tournament rules page:

Re: quick ethics checkup: are any of these cheating?

#3 is explicitly allowed by Stars (can't speak for other sites). Selling your seat is explicitly not allowed. The mom thing probably most closely correlates with the phone call example, though the...

Re: Mid pair in BB $12/180 turbo FT

I think you probably do have 58% against a fairly wide range. You note that in < 10 hands he's stolen the blinds twice already and played a hand, so he's been reasonably active. You also look like...

Stud H/L 3 to a low straight flush, with cards dead

Don't play much stud, but I do occasionally play in a micro-limit HORSE or HOSE tournament to broaden my horizons and blow off some steam. This hand is from one of those. First Stud H/L round,...

Re: hi i havbe a small issue

Stat tracking software tracks your stats (what hands and positions are you calling, raising, folding, reraising etc.). It also tracks what your opponents are doing. A heads up display will take the...

Re: Chipleaders Clash 4-left. $12/180 FT

Easy call. UTG=CO 4 handed, and if anything he's going to be raising lighter than he normally would in the CO spot. With effective stacks of 14 BB villain is shoving any hand he's playing. The...

Re: I think I played this 4/180 hand wrong, agreed?

Raise preflop is too big. 250 to 300 would be fine. Rest of the hand looks fine.

Re: KK, + dry pot + deepstack overcall

Call pre is lets lots of worse hands come along at a discount. That's a good thing, not a bad thing. I'd be planning on shoving any non-A flop though.

I think your range for MP1 is a little...

Re: QQ turns to royal flush draw

Shove is a big overbet. Make a cbet and hope he pushes over. Don't feel compelled to call, fist pump call. You can't really have less than 7 outs here (if you're even behind). You may have more...

Re: Official APPT Macau Thread (and meet up)

WTF is up with that pokernews site? It's only giving chip counts for like 15 players.

Re: Money bubble: $6.50, 18-man turbo

Your math is right, sorta, but it doesn't include the fold-equity you get from shoving. The other thing that looks wrong to me (and there's a possibility I might be mistaken) is that your calling...

Re: Wow he had to have me right?

Nah. Stacks are pretty short here. Villain could easily show up with AK or even worse. Regardless, you've raised more than half your stack, folding would be just awful. Villain may think you're...

Find a hand converter.

Then shove, and be happy you had enough chips to keep playing.

Re: TT faces 10x reraise. WTF to do here?

120 is a pretty standard raise there. 3x BB + 1x BB per limper. I'm not worried about pricing in the limper. He's exhibited no strength, and at 4/180, the limpers almost always come along, unless...
