are you telling me this was my shot to throw "orienteering" into a paper?

[/ QUOTE ]

yes. "international orienteering federation" and "world orienteering championships" would have been good phrases. you could also mention that it "originated in scandinavia"

Default wtf

Live 30 game. A million bets go in preflop, and 5 people see the flop. Flop is 8 9 10r. A million bets go in on the flop 4 ways. Turn is Q and it gets checked through..LOL. River is 8 9 10 Q (6). EP bets and gets 3 overcalls. 77>QQ>99>88

Tweedle Dum raises in EP, Tweedledee raises in MP, I cold cap JJ. Flop is A 6 2. check/check/bet TweedleDum calls, other mucks. TD check calls a blank turn. River goes check check, and MHIG. Tweedledum turns over 1010, and says confusedly,"wow. I thought you had an Ace"

Gotta love that, they are confused about your hand, but they still can't win!

Default Question

***LOW-CONTENT QUESTION***

What's the biggest pot you've taken down preflop? My personal record comes from a live 20-40 game. Limp, raise, I 3-bet and all fold.

This exact situation happened to me twice in one night back in the summer. What kinda idiot raises and folds to a 3bet preflop?

Default Re: Question

wow this was awesome. so i'm in discussion for a class and at the end people are asking stupid questions about the reading to which the answer would be obvious if they had opened the book (and in some cases if you just weren't retarded). it's like the last or second to last section before the final so i ask "is there going to be a useful study guide for the final and like not a terrible one like we had for the midterm?"

her response: "i didnt think it was terrible. in fact i wrote it"

oops

for someone who talks so little i sure find ways to make myself look like a douche really often

btw i have raise/folded pf in limit holdem for 1 bet at least once. i raised blind on the button when quiet saleem was small blind and a tight player was big blind. since you dont know who quiet saleem is you should understand that if you are button on his bb you do not need to look at your cards when it folds to you. if he is sb you do not need to look as long as the bb will fold sometimes. anyway i raise, quiet saleem 3bets, i see like 92o and fold. i vaguely remember doing it another time but don't remember the situation.

Scores--

Don't forget the dead money from the limper who already folded. There are some isolated stories of people raise/folding preflop in LHE for good reasons, but that was certainly not one of them. And sure as hell not when I'm the one 3-betting.

I posted a hand months months, maybe years? back where utg limped, co raised, I 3-bet, blinds folded, guy asked if I would show if he folded. So he did and I did.

Default Re: Question

i am quite confident nobody has ever folded to me on the flop for one bet, let alone preflop... i can count on one hand the times i have been able to 'steal' the blinds - it must be a strange poker life to not end up with at least three payoffs when you make a hand... but take a pot down preflop, wtf is that?
