Do I understand the Rules?
generally the all in would have to be at least half of a raise. If he went all in for 150 then UTG would be allowed to raise. So in normal tournament settings UTG would not be allowed to raise when the all in is only 15 more chips. But, as justalurker said, it's a home game, and the rules don't always have to be exactly what official tournament rules are, but normally anything that differs from official rules would be discussed before the tournament starts, and everyone should be clear on what they are. I would just make sure you're clear going forward. If they want a raise to be allowed ...

How do you guys play 10-20bb
lol shoving 10bb with ATC is definitely too wide of a range to be shoving. Check out Nash ranges here / That should give you a good range to start from. If it's a tight table you can shove more often because they fold more often.

Bovada Update
It's not a Mac issue. I have a PC, a very good PC at that, running windows 8.1 and it's still laggy for me. I also tried it on my laptop which has windows 7 and that was also laggy.

QQ faced alin last 2 tables of the big 4.40$
With your analysis of the guy already, being shove/fold this is such an easy snap call and never ever ever ever folding. He is clearly shoving very wide and QQ is so far ahead of that range it would be burning money to do anything other than fold.

Unfortunately you can't have just the alert sounds you want, like when you're timing out. You can only have it beep every time it is your turn to act which gets pretty annoying. It's under settings though in the lobby.

CrownUpGuy Talks Mindset and His Path to Success on The Mindset Advantage Podcast
Fedor is definitely #1 in my book. He understands more about the game than anyone I know. He understands the importance of balance which is just so important for professional poker players. It's pretty insane what he's accomplished in just a few years, and still incredibly down to earth! Congrats Fedor! You've earned it!

Call off with 33 here preflop?
Are there antes'' Agree with SSSM. If I was in the BB it's a very close close spot. From the button I'd probably fold and wait for a spot to shove. Even from the BB I might fold. Your equity is probably about 47% against his shoving range, and you almost never have him dominated. So being on the button with no money invested I think it's easier to fold. When you're in the BB you might be getting too good of a price to fold.

Interesting spot with AJ
Yeah I gotta lean toward shoving here although I don't love it. With like 7bb in the pot already and some fold equity I think this will be profitable even though when he calls we will be behind, probably have about 35% equity vs his calling range. Picking up 7bb when he folds is huge.

33$ SS Bovada hand analysis
Why do you see other peoples cards that they folded' Are you PotRipper' And why the fuck would UTG have folded KQs in the first hand. Anyway, first hand, I'd just jam pre. He's got 17bb to start the hand and already put in 2. You're risking 16bb to win about 4 and vs a button raise he's going to fold often enough to make this profitable. As played I'd just check jam the turn. Second hand if you think he is 3 betting light then jamming is certainly fine. I like jamming over flatting because too many bad flops will come for us and we won't know if we still have the best hand (assuming we did ...

KK OOP vs btn reg on Axx
I would bet the turn. You should be checking this flop when you have an ace pretty often, and also, when the Q comes on the turn you can get value from Qx, KT KJ JT. I think as played I'm calling the turn and river. Also, what tourney is this' Buyin and is it a SNG or MTT

Poker easier the higher the stakes
It may be true that you can successfully bluff more often at higher stakes, but you also get bluffed more often too. That doesn't mean that your ROI is going to be higher at higher stakes. In fact, most times your ROI will decrease as you move to higher limits but not always.

Taxes regarding professional poker and minimum wage
Hypothetical situation: I live in the US and I play poker as a business and file my taxes as self employed through a schedule C. I play for 40 hours a week, 52 weeks of the year. This year I made $10400 meaning on average I earned $5/hr, less than minimum wage. (And after taxes that would be closer to $3.50/hr) Are there any additional deductions that would allow me to pay less in tax because I made less than minimum wage'

Folding big hands KK, QQ, JJ, TT and sometimes Ak
What's already been said here, and also Often times you get lucky to come back from a short stack. Not saying there isn't skill involved but you have to get lucky to pick up hands, and lucky to have them win. There is a lot of luck in the short term of poker, so don't overestimate your skill and think you are entitled to anything. Sounds like you've just had the wrong end of some coolers. It's possible that there was a spot to fold a big hand like JJ, but in general you really should never be folding KK preflop in a MTT unless there are very very extreme circumstances. I actually don't ...

In BB vs UTG
I would have played it the same way, you just got unlucky. I think folding is bad, shoving is alright I guess, but I think calling is going to be superior. The reason I think calling is going to be better is you can get better hands to fold occasionally, but a problem is when you flop very mediocre, you're going to be getting a very good price, so it's going to be tough to find a fold.

27bb AQo facing raise and 2 flats OOP
Seems like a pretty decent spot to just shove. There's like 20k in the pot, you're increasing your stack by almost 40% when everyone folds. Your hand plays well vs the range that calls you, and you have a ton of fold equity. Seems like a no brainer spot to me.

Last 40 players in the 2,20 turbo
Oh I missed that the BB is sitting out. It adds an interesting dynamic to the hand. I would still probably fold because I think people get crazy when it comes to a BB sitting out, and some know that and tighten up. If he had been an active player then I think it's fine to shove.

Early in 5.50 on ACR
I think the raise size is fine. He made it 200 and still half the people left in the pot called him. Make it as much as you can to build the pot because you'll be able to make bigger bets on later streets and profit more. You want to size it so they still call with all that trash they play.

100K gtd, 100€ buyin - 11 hands selected
Honestly most of them looked fine. There were 2 that stuck out to me though, 66 that you raised UTG then called the min 3b, and bet 75% pot on KJ9 flop and then barreled turn. Definitely would not be doing that with that hand. When you are bluffing give yourself more than 2 outs. The second hand I noticed was the KJs where you raised UTG then called a shove. The open is fine but definitely folding to the shove. Other than that not bad.

Last 40 players in the 2,20 turbo
I personally would be folding here. Our hand just doesn't do well vs his calling range. If he is super active and you think he will be folding a large portion of the time, then shove is fine, but against most villains I would wait for a better spot. I would much rather shove JTo than A6o because of our equity when called. vs a calling range of [77+,ATs+,KTs,AJo+], JTo has 32%, while A6o has 28%. Honestly I'm probably still folding JTo, because I think you can wait for better spots.

Relocating to play online poker full time - where to go?
playing MTTs for rakeback is not going to be a great hourly rate because you earn VPPs and FPPs at such a low rate. If you are striving for breakeven, then you should be playing cash because your VPPs/hour will be the highest.

quallified to 100K gtd, 100€ buy-in - tips / advices
Is this a tournament ticket that you can buy in to the tournament on a week of your choice' If so I would recommend taking the monday after you plan to play it off from work so you aren't thinking, fuck I have to work in a few hours, when the tournament still has plenty of time left to run. 21:30 is a late start time especially for such a large tournament field. Strange that they chose that time to run it... Other than that, just play what you think is your best game and don't stress too much over situations. Take some hands from the tournament and post them here to learn from them. Have fun ...

I would bet as if I'm trying to get value from KQ and possibly get a call from a J, so I'm betting about $1200. I don't think shoving is going to get called by KQ, but I don't know the types of players on ACR. A lot of players on Bovada would snap call a shove with KQ so it does depend on that, but even on Bovada I'm value betting $1200.
