NH considering legislation to allow casinos
They've had a bill almost every year for the past 7 years and they all either get tabled or voted against. the one last year or 2 years ago was probably as close as it's going to get. It was a race against Mass and Mass is going to win. Also, as much as i'd love there to be a casino in every town here, i disagree that everyone should have the ability to open one. It over saturates the market way too much and all the big casino players would try to move to NH.

Cracked KK on dry flop
I was pretty much going to comment exactly this. Thinking it over, there aren't too many hands he SHOULD be barrelling this turn with that you have beat (maybe AJ, KJ, 77 type hands), but if you know something about your opponent and know he's going to fire multiple streets then i like the way you played this. I dont think i prefer raising flop because you should be able to get it in vs JJ and QQ anyway on turn and he's going to fold probably everything else you have beat. By calling you give him the opportunity to bluff again. and meh call turn definitely not your favorite card but it ...

Cash Versus MTT
1/2 and 2/5 live cash are very soft compared to same stakes online. 1/2 live might be like .10/.25 online in terms of player fields and player competency. that might be even cutting .10/.25 players short.

Advantage of collusion?
Boring answer but here goes: Poker is a game of incomplete information. They have more info than you, so you don't have an advantage over them long term. You may come across a situation where you can cooler one/both of them for stacks, however that shouldn't make up for them cheating over a long sample size. Either do something about it, or stop playing this game IMO.

I once lost all my money at Turning Stone, was a sad night.
Parlayed the over and the Vikings +3 (just got Randy Moss) vs the Jets in 2010 for $500, biggest bet of my life. Halftime game was 9-0 and I pretty much wrote it off, but Vikings rally and Jets score enough to have me in position to win, as long as Brett Favre doesn't throw a pick 6 or some fumble for TD etc.

QQ82 3 or 4 suited
If this isnt a level, QQ82 is pretty garbage in O8.

Tournament rules question
No you don't get action, you've already had action this street. Player could have gone all in for 900 and you still wouldn't get action. Similar to if player shoves over top of a bet for small amount more. It has to be full bet.

Set vs stupid river shove?
You're all super deep at this point. we're not saying raise TT and look to get it in, but you should be raising most of your range here. TT often won't end up being a hand you can get 3 streets of value on, especially multi way, but that shouldnt mean you dont raise pre over limpers. i'm probably raising to 100 here, and if both call you have position and 150bbs against 2 opponents with a strong hand. It's a spot you should be pretty comfortable/confident playing.

Semi bluff gone wrong
This post is worthless IMO. there are no $22 with good value. $235 live tourney=way fishier than any $22 on stars. That being said, I also don't like this line with AJ. its just a spewy bluffy line. What was river card' is heart flush really rep-able' not really IMO. even if it is, if this board ran out 2 bricks and no straight draws, this guy can put enough doubt into his own head to call off and put you on clubs/QJ/KQ KJ. I don't like your line here that much. You had enough chips to wait for a better spot.

KQs in bb with 45bb, 5 handed facing raise from button - Live game.
I agree with all of this BTW, i just think history has a lot to do with 3b vs flat.

Do we make call here?
MP players hand feels a lot like some sort of jack. I don't have stove in front of me but it feels like a player with 40/10 stats has a lot of J's in his preflop range. Even though it somewhat contradicts what i just said and It might be spewy, but i think I might check raise this flop. You do well against everything but a J, KK or AA, and I think check raising 3 ways looks like you might have a J, and MP player could also have other random hands he wants to play because hes a 40/10. If you c/r to 1600, you only lost ~400 more (small % of your stack) than you did by playing super weak and ...

KQs in bb with 45bb, 5 handed facing raise from button - Live game.
What is your history with the player' have you 3b him yet' Have you been flatting his raises from the btn on your sb' I think if you have some 3b history with him you might be able to 3b/call here, or 3b/5b if he puts in some sort of small 4b. If you've been flatting, i think flatting disguises your hand and KQs will be crushing a lot of his btn open range.

55$ MTT. 38BB OOP, hitting bottom two against TAG opener. Case be made for folding?
Agree with this. JT or 67 could be some part of his range, and AA should probably not be any part of this range. He limped and you got in on the SB, he doesn't have to give you credit for a hand, and he could be raising a lot of random Ax hands for 'protecting' on a drawy board. Bad beat obv, but this is an on to the next one hand. Don't sweat it, don't question your play, load up another one.

Deciding whether or not to fire a third barrel - live 1/2
If he has a king, he's probably not folding river. So if you had him on a K or nut flush draw on turn, he's either not folding, or you're ahead and not getting value on this river so no I don't fire third bullet. There aren't enough hands that filled in by this river to make a normal 1/2 player fold here. and raising $6 pre is too small. I usually raise $10 if i'm first in.

set facing x/r early in 5r
I think min raising pre is a mistake in the first few levels online. Seems to happen more and more and even regs seem to do it but it doesn't build big enough of a pot, (which may have saved you from busting this hand). that being said, play same way. tough to find fold when he can't really have better sets that often.

Deep Turbo advice
sigh. Obviously not folding kings here. but i think shoving is better than flatting because flatting a third of your stack looks like a super strong hand and like you're trying to pull another player in the pot. Shoving you might get someone to call off a little lighter as you look like your ISOing. but yeah. don't fold KK pre. ever.

WSOPC - Foxwoods
foxwoods really sucks lately. They've been hurting financially and my opinion is that they've been closing a lot of their hotels for certain days and jacking up prices on others. Bellisimo Grande is about 3 miles down and usually has good rates, and there are some others a little further away that are pretty good.

Set of 7s Interesting spot
I was saying it wouldn't be a huge suprise for villain to overcall 56/A5 on this dry of a board. No one is super likely to hit anything scary for a straight on the turn for that flop.

Thoughts?
If you call this flop, (which i agree with) and hit a K, there is no folding the turn. even if you hit a J you might be able to find some math that argues calling. I'd guess most of his range here is going to be Qs, with some 2 pairs or maybe sets, but enough Q's that this has to be +EV. I would not be 3b this pre like one poster said.

Set of 7s Interesting spot
For one, raise pre every time you are first in the pot. limping pre here is a huge mistake. 500-700 is good. second, flop bet is fine. I disagree villain could have A5 or 56 here and just overcall. on turn, I like betting, but this spot is just so bad because you didn't raise pre. you have no idea what these guys could have. I'd probably call but i'm not sure that makes it right. i guess they could have 2 pairs or pair/flush draw type hands, maybe something weird like 75 and just spazzing. raise pre always and make these spots a little easier.

Live cash game TT facing CRAI
1. c bet flop. its dry enough that no one hit it. probably check turn if you c bet flop and a non T comes off. 2. you didn't say his stack size which might matter if he has like $100 or something but otherwise you can't call. maybe he's going crazy with diamonds but who knows and its not a good spot. 3. again stack size matters for villain but probably doesn't change much. you don't do well against his check/raise range on that turn IMO. Side note- just repeat the bet total next time. its not a scene. been a dealer 6 years it wouldn't bug anyone

some input please ??
Again i don't agree. Instead of bbs, talk chips. 200/400/50 hero has 20k villain has 12k. Full table 1050 in pot before cards dealt. villain opens to 1k, hero 3bs to 2500, villain 4bs to 5500. If you flat, pot is going to be 12,050 and eft stacks are 6500, and looking ahead, you have 1/2 pot sized bet on flop. villain is shoving his entire range probably on this flop and now you're getting almost 3-1, I don't see a benefit to flatting here. change the numbers villain opens 800, hero 3bs 1800, villain 4bs 4000. In this situation I think this is an easy shove and never a small 5b/flat. That ...

some input please ??
Tournaments have high amounts of variance. Think about how many times before this final table bubble spot you were 69% to hold and did. it balances out eventually, some tournaments it doesn't and you run deep. Only thing you can do is study, try to get better, or do something else. Also FWIW, I don't know exact stack sizes or bets because you didn't post but speaking in generalities, I don't agree with the post saying take a flop.

which pocket pairs are we jamming UTG with 10-14bbs what about 15-20 bbs?
idk what the above answer is about. I don't have a chart in front of me but if you're playing with antes i think 10bbs is any pair 11-13 is 55+ and 14-16 is 77 or 88+. if thats not exact its pretty close.
