A miserable two hands that eliminate me from the final six of the Double Deuce MTT
Understandable having a vent. It's a bitch when you run like shit in the late game.

Bankroll stolen at Pokerstars
Stars has a small transfer limit, not sure what it is but it is less than $400 unless you email them and request for larger transfers.

$55 monsoon - I miss clicked FYI
Then yeah he seems to be opening a lot so inducing is cool. I prefer raise and 4 bet shove, just because a limp shove is a huge overbet compared to the amount you win if he folds, you can get more out of him if you raise and he 3 bets

Playing behind a limper
Just play your game and pretend he's not there. You can lose a lot vs these players if you try to pressure them off hands post flop, so I wouldn't bloat the pot preflop, and post flop id not get too crazy either. Post flop I prefer to barrel flop and river against this type of player...reason I prefer the 2 barrel is because if they call the flop they probably want to see all 5 cards and won't be folding to a turn bet, so you're better off risking less and betting them off the river when they miss.

compare live to on line?
The suckouts are the same live as online, it just that you get in more hands per hour online. I have played both and have sucked out/ been sucked out on just as much. Online has tougher players though, so to build a roll you have to do it slowly and patiently.

$55 monsoon - I miss clicked FYI
You have 31 bbs which is too much for a limp jam I think. I know it's blind vs blind.. Raise and 4 bet jam is better if you think he is 3 betting with a lot of crap, but you have a 2 hand sample, so is just raise and either flat the 3 bet or fold if it's too big.

Question/Reasoning???
Yeah I am like that live, bank roll management goes out the window. As Arnisss said you are only playing 1 game live, whereas online the 100$ could get you ten 10$ tournies instead and adds up quicker.

$55 Thunder 2nd Chance 6-Max / Final Table Final 5
Obviously there are no value hands he can have that you beat so the question you need to ask is is he bluffing here ever. Yes they may have seen you fold a lot before, but a lot of players still won't act on that and will just play their cards. You have to understand if they are a player that is capable of putting you all in with air because they have seen you fold a lot, or if they are just going to play standard. As played it is an annoying spot to be in, if you really think there are enough bluffs in his range then you can call off as you did. Sorry if this post seems unhelpful but you ...

Downright goofy line from villain. Are we calling it off?
There is 400 chips in the pot on the flop with 50bb effective stacks, what sizing so you think is best' Easy river fold as played.

Is this bad sizing and river fold?
I would bet bigger on turn at least over half pot on turn for value, and probably lead river too for value. although there is some merit in check calling since you felt he didn't have much and might be good to give him a chance to bluff, it is also gross to bet/fold top set.

Got lost on this hand…help w/ JT plz...
Yeah I'd be jamming turn. If expect him to play over pairs that way as well. If you ran into JJ it's just a freak cooler. but you can't count out 88 as well, because he doesn't need to have a premium hand with this preflop action.

AK 4 bet or flat?
I wouldn't 4bet call I'd just shove preflip, never flatting a raise that size with your stack, if you got coolered with aces or kings that's unlucky.

Can BB 4B profitably here?
Whether it's profitable or not should really depend on your image, or how he sees you. Although... The button steal/SB resteal is such a common thing that he might think it's just another one of those situations even without seeing you do it before.

Nothing urgent. Just curious bout' sum.
I can see an argument for both, if you 3 bet, hopefully that can fold out some of the 4 flat callers, and you can take it down with 1 bet on the flop....Having said that though I don't think flatting is terrible, especially if you think all 4 of them will flat call preflop, because if you 3 bet to say 350 or so and all 4 players call, then you only have a pot sized bet left on the flop, which is awkward in a multiway pot if you miss.

I knew he had that! Then why did I call?
Well your odds if winning are 95% after the flop, so unless your premonition is more than 95 % accurate you need to be going with the pot odds and making the call here. I am wondering though, did you envision the 9 because it was coming, or did it come because you envisioned it'

Hoisted by my own petard. but how like this????
Checking behind isn't that bad really because you probably have a 2 street value hand. Although just because of the board you might be better off to bet turn before a bad card comes on the river which could lose you some value, such as a heart, or a J,Q,A or T, or half the deck I guess.

correct ruling by pit boss?
I don't think it's right, but I am not certain on that. I think he has to either forward motion or say "call" or "all in".

How bad is this fold?
Everything Tyson said. Standard 3 bet preflop. As played a standard fold on the flop for any solid player after 2 all ins on the flop and another player still to act behind you.

River decision: check behind or jam for value?
It's actually kind of not that great to jam river on that run out, the only worse hands he is likely to call with are weaker aces, and it's less likely he has one of those since the ace came on the turn and he called the flop. If the ace came on the flop instead, then yeah is definitely jam river

quick questioin about satellites
For 3x turbos I usually reg right before it closes. Hypers reg from the start. Any other format I prefer at the start unless it is a rebuy turbo in which case I don't think it matters.

5k gtd - Final table - again 9th ...
AQ hand, don't really like the flop raise/ fold. He led out with 3 players to act behind so I'd probably fold it because he is not folding. If you had the Ad then it's different. second hand, I am flaring behind with all of my utg opening range here except premiums which id 4 bet. You have position and a hand that can flop nicely as well.

How Much Respect Does Poker's "Old Guard" Deserve?
Well yeah they were lucky to be in poker at a time when the standard of play was poor so they could make easy cash. You don't have to respect their game, some are washed up and some have adapted well. but you don't have to be angry over it either and try to detract some of their respect over it. respect that lucky or not they helped build the poker economy by making it popular. And also respect that they are people, fortunate or not. I sometimes think what it would have been like if I discovered poker in the early or mid 2000s as well when games were softer but I don't get mad at the people ...

Good fold ?
Min raise or fold pre, just to take initiative and to avoid giving someone else the initiative. Fold pre when raised to that amount. Yes the flop fold is good after a bet and a call. That flop is so dry there are no draws at all so the other players are going to have an ace or the bs could have 6x so there is unlikely to be a worse hand calling that flop.

Turbo player need some tips on regular MTT
I don't think there is anything wrong with the first 2 hands, there are different ways to play them if you want, but nothing wrong with how you did it. My thoughts: AA hand - yeah raising the lead is fine. When people lead small, depending on the player it can mean either they have a draw or weak hand and are trying to buy a cheap turn, or they have a monster and are trying to induce. On the turn though I'd rather bet and get it in because most of the time his range is going to be worse hands. River is a tough spot as played, because your hand is underrepped so it's hard to know where ...
