Re: New Tysen Streib Book: Kill Everyone

Great book, an awful lot to integrate in your play, even for almost all regulars I guess.

1 question Tysen: when referring to your database of low-level players and their average calling %, ......

Re: Chess Rating question, what does it mean?

Some online ratings are much higher than fide. ICC is such an example. But any site could employ an underrated system as well.

The way new players get their rating and how you win/lose points vs...

Has this anything to do with poker? Then please mention so as well. Apart from the title there's nothing on poker in it.

Re: ($12) Shortstacked with KJo vs. limpers

I'd push expecting 1 call, giving you 1.5-to-1 odds. (He simply has to call btw.) That's good enoug for me (vs AQ for example).

You have to double up soon anyway, so this is a great shot: decent...

Re: bankroll needed for bodog begginer stts

I'd never stake someone if I couldn't figure this out. Unless you don't care about -EV, but then again the answer doesn't matter.

Re: $22s- AK misses, CRAIed on flop

Either you move all-in on the flop or bet 400 intending to fold to a raise. So your decision should have been made earlier. Both plays seem reasonable to me.

Re: $16 PS Awkward spot or no-brainer?

Seems like most assume he'll always call preflop. I expect him to fold a lot of hands that would be a favorite after an A- or K-high flop. That's why I raise.

Re: Bubble, we got AA, and supershortie is sitting out

I meant you "did go wrong" by making calculations here. It's useless imo since even when it's close the FE will swing the balance big time. (Which it seems you all understood.)

Re: 27: Tough bubble spot AQs with shorty in SB

Suppose you fold and SB doubles (50% chance). Then you're BB and really in trouble.
But when you push and get called with an A or KT for example you're still fine.
Add the fact that BB migt fold...

Re: Durrr in process of losing 60k+ in a chess bet.. good month for ra

Some facts:
I've played countless blitz-games (5 minutes) vs guys who played 1 year, giving a queen or both rooks. Always winning them. Main reason: the time-pressure. So don't think a knight or...

Re: ($24) standard reshove with 99?

That's an easy fold in my book.

You're only ahead vs few hands he'd shove for 8BB and 3 players left to act behind you. Even racing vs Q9o seems -$EV; let alone wit 3 players left to act. And he...

Re: $16-KQs-real short

Odds are to great to let go and being desperate doesn't hurt either. The chance he has a monster is way too low to matter in this decision, unless you have an extrememly solid read.

Re: $225 Thin/Bad Call vs. Gramps.

Considering how the chips are distributed among the players I'd fold. You'll soon have better chances.

Re: 6.50 Stars AK min reraised

Seems like an easy push considering you hold AK, making AA and KK less likely. Odds are too good to walk away.

Re: $16:Troubles with TT

Same here: JJ is an easy push, TT is an annoying fold.
I certainly can't imagine pushing 99 here. So when not pushing 99 is clearer than pushing JJ I opt for not pushing TT.

Re: $5.50 - AJs on bubble against all-in re-raise

I'd raise 400 preflop and fold to the push.
AJs is too good to fold, but you certainly don't want this confrontation. 400 doesn't make it an auto-call for the BB and let's you get away easily....
