Re: i flop middle set str8 and flush draws are out. you play it

Re: i flop middle set str8 and flush draws are out. you play it

LOL. A min-raise might be fun (i.e. not as horrid as usual). It compels the button to fold even if he has a flush draw b/c he doesn't want to get caught between you and the original bettor in a...

Re: What you think about this theory of mine

Your original presumption is way way way off.

Anyone who thinks they are getting 12:1 when you have 1K and the villain moves in for 12K is obviously not thinking. You can only win the 1K. You are...

25NL Hand...should I be folding this?

Villain is CO and this is his 4th hand at the table. No reads yet. He has ~$12.00 behind after his flop check/raise.

Re: *** Official joining every $4/180man until I win one ***

Forgive me, but this makes no sense to me.

The probabilities ought to be additive.

That is, if his chance of winning a single 180-person MTT is 1/180, he chances of winning 1 of 2 180-person...
