Re: Question

Played 20/40 limit for 6 hours today at Commerce. Ended up folding the winner on 5 different occasions. This is no doubt an all-time record for LA's Friendliest Casino, CoCo's pre-flop AA folds...

A hand I read about

I was poking around on another website and came across a blog from a well-known TV pro. He was describing a hand that he played recently in the $40-$80 game at the Bike in LA. Here's the hand:

UTG sounds like Richard, in which case your hand your hand is never any good. Is the guy invariably wearing a heavy jacket?

Comm 40: Another fold I made

This one came up yesterday a couple of hours or so after the one I just posted. Game's gotten significantly better since then.

SB is Frenchie. He's a regular at the LA casinos and frequently goes...

Comm 40: A fold I made

Decent afternoon game yesterday.

UTG is an old white guy who has been playing at Commerce, might be/was a prop there at one time, since the Lincoln administration. He's pretty...

Check-call the river and say "Did Jeff Van Vanderen teach you to play that way?"

I was sitting in an ok/decent $40/$80 limit hold'em game. One of the toughest players was a 50-something white woman named Kat. She's apparently been playing a very long time and she used to run a...

Uncomfortable spot with JJ (the hand, not the guy from \"Good Times\")

Good live game in SoCal Friday night.

I raise UTG with red JJ. Folded around to the SB who 3-bets it. He is a 20-something white dude, probably a lurker here. He is having a beer and chatting with...

Re: Comm 40: Bottom set vs Iris

Decent game last week. Iris, for those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting her, is a Commerce regular. She's a trust fund pro (I have no idea if she actually has a trust fund, but you get...

Re: November Low-Content Thread

Quick Q for the Commerce regulars:

What % of 40-80 players do you think are millionaires outside of poker? I think it must be close to 50%, but someone else thought it was much lower.

Re: November Low-Content Thread

Two gems I had recently (live games in SoCal):

1. I raise UTG+1 and get called by the blinds. (My hand isn't particularly important to the story.)

Re: 40-80 Commerce Line - Way Ahead Heads Up

I agree with everyone else that you needed to get more value pre and post.

As played, though, I'd bet this turn. You'll get a call from a big spade that would have taken the free card. You'll get...
