Need a little help with a hand
how much did he raise to' 2k, 3k' If he raise to 3k, then he is probably priced in to call. I like the play but I prefer to have more chips if there is a good chance he will call ATC, J4 is not good enough if hes calling any 2. I don't know what range is good enough but Id say JT+ and pairs

3.30 MTT line check vs tight passive
Edit: Misread the hand. I prefer bet/fold to get value from a 9 or ace high but its not so bad to check fold as I don't think the player you described has a bluff too often.

36BB: bust out hand - 37 players remaining
First hand, if he is super tight (like he would check-fold AK in this spot) then you can flat and rep the Jack on the turn and river. I don't think shoving is terrible, as you will get him off AK and have equity if called, but I don't think you can get him to fold anything else in his 'tight' 3 bet range. Second hand very standard!

This is still bugging me... Can I check a set on the turn and give him a free card?
Definitely bet as per above you want to make sure you get as much value as possible. He check called you on a dry board so he could have all sorts of crap to get value from really, but if you sense he might check fold, just bet smaller so he cant.

Spot during semi-late stages of a $100 MTT
Bet fold the flop is what I would do, or I might bet bigger and call due to odds. I don't like checking it back to try to hit your outs because you usually won't hit them and if you do you might not get paid. You also open yourself up to lose the pot if he leads the turn and you don't hit. Calling isn't terrible after he shoves, you have a break even call if he has a 1 pair hand which is not Kx, Qx, or Jx. If you don't want to fold then bet bigger on the flop to take away his fold equity and also give you the right odds :D

Opinions please
Fold pre for sure. 38 doesn't play well, 38 suited doesn't play well either. There are so many other hands you can play, why play this one lol. You also are not that desperate to double up with 30bbs.

How do we pull the most value out of the flopped nuts from early position?
I'd just shove the flop vs a random since he has shown a lot of strength. Most randoms won't be able to get away from a K. I guess you did shove and lost him huh' I don't mind flatting and going for 3 streets, it does look very strong, but it might be easier for him to slowly pot commit himself rather than call it all off on the flop.

Talking about poker in job interviews
I wouldn't mention it. For people who don't know the game, it has a sleazy stigma attached to it. Before I learned the game I used to think of poker as in the same categories as strip clubs, prostitution, and wasted miserable lives.

Poker and marriage
Think about ways to use other time efficiently to improve your poker. Listening to TPE podcasts while at work is a good one too. I'm lucky enough to be able to stick in earphones and do my mindless tasks for most of the day, not everyone can though I suppose. Fall asleep to tpe videos as well is a good one. Depends how serious you are really, if you want it it can be done but are you prepared to do what it takes'

Distraction free poker is one thing, but even if you could play distraction free...To be great at poker (for most people) requires a tonne of volume, study, and time and attention just to stay ahead of the other players. Read that again. It REQUERES it. Unless you are just naturally talented and brilliant then you must put the work in. What I'm saying is that you can't achieve your poker dreams without sacrificing other things. Now your wife is so much more Important than poker, so that is out of the question. So I think you have to accept that you are limited as to how much you can put ...

late game play
Such is the nature of tournament poker, you have to accept that sometimes you will bust when trying to get more chips, even when you are ahead and even in critical spots. I think he can call KQ profitably vs your 17bb shove. KQ has 40% to beat you, so while you were ahead, you were at risk of busting. For the record your shove is definitely correct, and vs some villains you should even be inducing with the A9.

Looking for new computer, advice needed pls
I know pretty dumb huh! I've lost mouses, screens, doors, keyboards, and computer desks in the past but this time I went for my laptop. My walls are solid stone though so I cant get away with that. At my old house I used to punch my fridge since that was softer and I just covered the dents with fridge magnets and wedding invites.

Yeah I actually punched it and since then it just will not work at all. I closed the lid before I hit it also thinking that might do less damage but apparently not.

What is the right play?
I wouldn't fold. He can have weaker aces and be overplaying them, as well as draws. This looks like a short stacked tourney, so people tend to play faster as well.

lol spot with second nuts facing 3 all ins in the 3r
Lol what a weird spot. You are most likely ahead of medhev, probably has sets or 2 pairs, he never has a straight I don't think. As for the other 2, they can have sets, J8 and KJ. I'd just move on because KJ is likely and if you are ahead you need to fade a lot of outs so I might fold it.

Thoughts want on Sunday Million 9th Anniversary hand
Well you just don't know do you some players do some weird things really. But you have a lot of chips so I think you need to try to get your money in good and not level yourself into a light call off. I'd be calling off tight here since this is a reg who will, in this particular tournament, be 4bet-jamming the top of his range preflop since you showed strength, and he would probably play marginal hands more conservatively, but just jam his value range. This spot is different Vs randoms.. Usually I see 2 types of villians do this sort of thing. First villian is an aggro fish and probably ...

Can we Please stop re-entry tournaments!?
I think they can get expensive because it is hard not to reenter when you bust. Overall is it better to have some players being loose and bloating the prizepool knowing they can reenter though'

Is this my mistake in satellites?
Definitely don't fold, but do not shove either - Just flat. You want the other guy in the pot too as that is more chances to KO the short stack.

JJ against allin,34 bbs effective, is this a fold?
I'd be calling. Sometimes you get nervous players shoving silly amounts with QQ+ but more often than not you will see AK.

Thanks a lot for the info guys. I went to the store and looked at this machine and I am glad you say it is not up to the task because it is so damn ugly to look at that it would put me off my game anyway. I'll look for something with a bigger SSD and a video card and a good processor.

How can I avoid this bad bleeding of chips after gaining a big stack early??
Sounds like you are talking about winners tilt. You are letting your emotions override your logic. You need to get your head back into balance and just focus on playing good and not getting upset if you lose a few chips or slip down the leader board.

Lost on this one.
I agree with a lot of the comments above. Prefer to peel 1 here. I really doubt this could be a total bluff, but villians can show up with weaker pairs like 55-66 and just be raising to take the pot down. Makes life hard for him on future streets as well when you flat.

Small Pocket pairs on the buttton 20bb deep!!!
Against very very tight players, raise fold is fine. Against aggro players I'd just shove with the smaller pairs. The reason I'd just shove is because raise folding any pair on the button vs aggro players with perfect reshove stacks makes you ridiculously exploitable...and raise/calling off is too high variance.Mid pairs and up raise call is best because they can show up with some hands that you have dominated/crushed.

I am looking to get a new computer since I broke my last one. I just want to know if this computer I am looking at will run what I need. And also any other advice about using this sort of computer. I like this one because it doubles as a tablet and I can connect it up to a second screen when playing. I will need to run stars and holdem manager at the same time and sometimes Full Tilt. Holdem manager doesn't run so well on my old lap top, my CPU fan used to go nuts when HM was running and also I found it to be very, very slow and chew up heaps of RAM (i think it had 4 gb ram, and the ...

Hero call on the river- interested to hear any thoughts
I think the guy actually thought he was bluffing with the river shove, so the call isn't too bad. I know it is not a good spot to bluff, especially given his stack size, but some players just don't actually think 'what better hand can I get him to fold/what worse hands call' before they bluff, they just want to win the hand so they shove.Problem with the call is he can be bluffing with better hands, mostly small pairs like 55-88, which I am seeing people check call with a lot in low stakes...but they may be more likely to check the river as well due to showdown value, so maybe pure air is ...
