Re: Overbetting: When to use it?

Another reason to overbet is to negate a disadvantage in position or information by getting all-in or at least committed. That is, if we act first or if our hand is better defined than the...

Re: Why do none of the 3/6 and 5/10 full ring players post here?

I wonder if the right thing to do is do away with the idea of forums and create individual filters. E.g., I am interested in:

Re: 50NL: Implied odds/hand reading: Call flop?

I don't like calling against these villains. I think it's overly optimistic to expect sufficient implied odds for your actual outs.

We're a 10.5 : 1 dog to hit the gut shot on the turn. So we...

Re: 1/2 live hand - curious about a read/tell

If you don't know what a mannerism means for this particular villain, it's not a tell; it's noise. Just ignore it.

I'm OK with the preflop call as long as the other players have something worth...

Re: 25NL, JTs in SB facing raise

Bad position hurts suited connectors a lot. You could call this for twice the stack depth in position.

Re: Limped pot, TT in SB full-ring

Does anyone like to limp/reraise at this table? If most of the pots are limped this doesn't seem like a good strategy, so I would guess no.

You probably have the best hand, so I think you can...

Re: $1/2 UTG

A general question- if we are raised on the flop, would we have rather bet $15 or $25? Or to say it differently, assuming the raise is 3x our bet, would we rather go to the turn with...

Re: Hand reading quiz

[ QUOTE ]
His river bet really looks like a thin value bet, and I think we are behind a bit more often then not.

That makes this a pretty clear call getting 3:1 then, right?

Re: Am I bluffing? I think I\'m bluffing ($400NL river decision)

It's definitely a good thought. It's easy to get in the habit of checking down mediocre hands on the river without giving any consideration to the alternatives.

I can't say I like this move,...

Re: Confused on flop with AA, 1-2nl deep

If his range is really this wide, then I think you should be willing to go down to felt. If he'll call $14 with 72, do you think he'll call $25? In a deep game, you have to consider your raise in...

1) we are getting 80-40 on our draw, or 2-1, the flush is to hit slightly less than 4-1.
