Re: Results

In example 1, you should 4-bet. If you just call, you are giving those yet to act too good a deal. Their M-cost-to-call=5.3 is low for M>90. Their implied odds given are about 18:1, sufficiently...

Re: 2nd hand of Mulligan AA

This hand is a good example of goals and reasonable expectations.

The appropriate times to massively scale risk on AA are pre-flop and flop. On the turn and river one should be wary of adding...

Re: Stars 109 TPTK

Does your opinion change if all the stack sizes here are doubled ? Tripled ? Quadrupled ?

The big reason I think calling with 3-to-nut-flush + 3-to-broadway is unlikely here is that it costs an...

Re: Foxwoods 2K: QQ vs. UTG limp/reraise

UTG is close to pot committed no ? Pot will be 10075 and he's only got 3250 left, and you'll have 4550 if you call.

I can't believe he'd pot commit himself on a total bluff. Perhaps he has AcKc...

Re: 55 UTG

Even at the loosest table an UTG shove is not going to get looked up by *any* PP, unless it's a short stack. Even if they do, it's only around 30% that anyone has a PP better than 55.

When...

Re: 55 UTG

I don't think any of you saying fold can come up with any sort of logic to justify that decision. "Standard" does not count as logic.

The only logic posted so far is that you get to see another...

Re: 55 UTG

M now = 11200/2200 = 5.1
M after blinds = 9700/2200 = 4.4

Your effective BB = 1467, you have 7.6 effective BB.

No reads, I shove 55 UTG here 100%.

Why are people folding ? I really don't...

Re: Insane HH from Niagara 10k involving THE Vanessa Rousso (and Shani

All joking aside, it might be right for even some good players to take a pass on their option and muck bottom 10-20% from BB.
