Re: Live 2/5 mystery hand

jazz,

I love this kind of a post.

From what I've been reading in PNLE, with stacks this deep hero's going to have a hard time getting a good stack-to-pot ratio with any strong preflop hand. I...

Re: Wow, dealer looks at my mucked hand. Thoughts?

dealers have done this to me as well at Winstar. Hate it, but I don't want to make a fuss either.

Re: [100nl] Deepstacked with underboat, stack off?

[edited so i can learn to read]

of course the flop check is an accident, but to keep my thought intact a lot your action is going to come from Qx, Kx and JT here, as 22-JJ, 5x and air aren't going...

Re: Can we just get preflop out of the way? part I

dj,

Re: Overbetting: When to use it?

I also tend to overbet the flop when playing vs short stacks.

Initially its for value, but once i get a read on how capable they are of folding it can be in bluff spots as well.

Re: Overbetting: When to use it?

berge,

the natural bluff overbet would be the third barrel on the river. we'll often see "call down to reasonable bet sizes" advice here, and it likely mirrors a lot of common nl thinking with...

Re: Live 2/5 hand: J2o in the BB

in a limped pot with this many draws vs unknowns I'll tend to fire out a 2/3 bet and hope to get peeled by T8, T9, 89, 78, 67, 56, or 45 (or any other middling pp that has some gutshot to go with...

Re: the pure bluff thread

this is interesting. I find bluffing to be remarkably profitable - even at the micro level. It really is all about finding the right spots though. Bad bluffers bluff without a story or bluff when...

the pure bluff thread

I'd like to start a thread that highlights the types of bluffs that are possible and typical in a NL game so that we limit lifers can take a gander.
