Not true. I would do that to attempt to extract more money in a small pot like this. I have done it before and it has been successful in getting a weak draw or a weak two pair to fold. This is why I thought it may be a good play in this instance. If he reraised then it is an easy fold because potting then reraising would indicate top set to me here.

You should really analyze what you're saying here. I'll hold your hand...

The paragraph I just quoted was in response to me saying that you never do this with a made hand.

Ok. That part is fair enough if you're checking to someone who will always bet when checked to but will shut down to a bet.

However...

This is an issue. If you are taking this line with a made hand, why would you WANT a worse hand/draw to fold?

In this case I would want them to fold.

I am guessing you mean when I have a made hand... in response to this, typically, I do it with bottom set. I usually don't want to give them a chance to draw out on bottom set or a mid set at times. Make sense.

BTW thanks for holding my hand nice to know you are there for me Crush!

If you have bottom set and you put your opponent on something weak then you do want to make it incorrect for them to draw out, but you certainly don't want them to fold.

What is the purpose of this post? Low content thread?

If you want us confirming this is bad and fps, you are right.

What is the purpose of this post?

[/ QUOTE ]Hi Blopp - I don't see how it could be any clearer:
[ QUOTE ]
I am reviewing my history in Pokertracker. I found a lot of hands that I played really standard on and lost just due to variance i.e. push with top trips and opponent catches their flush or straight... nothing I can really do to change those situations.

But after I took a lot of beatings it caused me to start playing "gun shy" in the beginning with strong starting hands and then when I have no shot at winning "over playing". This is an example of my slide into playing very weak with an extremely strong starting hand.

Notice when I don't hit my magic trip on the flop, I just check the flop. I repeat this pattern of just calling the flop in order to see what the turn brings in several hands like this one.

When I see that no diamond hits on the turn, I push into the pot hoping to take it down. Then he reraises me... at which point I suspect he either has me beat or is drawing good.

This is what I think I should have done. I should have either potted the flop or even better reraise his bet on the flop.

But as played when he reraised me I really should have folded.

I notice as I go through my database I played a few hands like this, sugestions?

[BTW I know this hand was horribly played. I am just reviewing all my huge mistakes and want to correct them.]

[/ QUOTE ]Doesn't that make the purpose of the post clear to you? If the poster does make the meaning clear, as is seems to me she does, why are you asking? Looks to me like maybe a thinly veiled attempt to belittle the poster. But why would you want to do that?

Low content thread?

[/ QUOTE ]Why would this belong in the low content thread? Why do you care if it's in the low content thread or not? Suggesting it has low content seems an attempt to belittle the poster.

[/ QUOTE ]No. That isn't what she wants. And it's not what she deserves.

Alas, you have evidently missed the point of the post.

It's all right if you don't catch on - but please don't insult other posters when you don't.

the way i see it there are two options:

1) lead flop and fold to any heat
2) check fold flop

i dont see merit in ck/calling the flop because it is unlikely our hand will improve and we cannot just put villain on FD.

definitely do not like turn lead at all... it seems like a very obvious bluff i guess? idk i just dont like it.

once we are raised there we are 100% beat imo.

hope that helps

Tight up alot postflop. Playing 100bb stacks you have to protect your stack. Get used to fold marginal hands like overpairs on drawy boards.

If you have troube folding hands and playing good postflop poker, simply buy in for 20b and alot spots is much more clearcut.

The relative strength of hands obvs change after the flop.

Janelle,

I would c-bet this flop and proceed based on any reads. Readless if called or raised I would be trying to get to showdown as cheaply as possible and usually folding to much heat. Leading that Q turn is a little unbelievable and just leaves you in an even worse spot with the hand you have. You are representing such a narrow range leading that turn and when he pots that flop I don't think he folds often. Hope that helps (take it fwiw - i'm no expert either [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
