  1. In the rebuys and deeper stacked non-turbo versions I prefer playing a very loose game early with connectors (suited or not). As your opponents tend to have a stronger range, when you hit you get stacked more often. I only advocate this in position though!
  2. I think I play it the same. You check raise all in with as high as 18 outs assuming you haven't run into a set. It's just unfortunate you've run smack bang into the top of his range. Would you have called / shoved if his hand was face up on the flop? Try Pokerstoving it and checking your equity given his range.
  3. Grats on the Brawl buddy
  4. In my head I thought I was bluff catching BlueDog. (Fail!) I couldn't see many hands that beat me given how he played it. I didn't mind offering 20+ implied odds as I'm predominantly playing this hand for 2pr+ / combo draw value. I'm messing round with a min bet all opens LAG approach to try change up my game a bit. I think the biggest flaw I'm seeing in all your advice is that I needed to C-bet regardless of holding both for value and information. Just a position I'm not used to getting myself in as I'd typically open 2.5 or more this deep. Thanks for all the advice. Just helps me think about things a little differently while I'm trying something new to me. For what it's worth, here's the showdown: *** SHOW DOWN *** OMGCrackedACES shows [Kc Ah] a pair of Aces leeroydafish mucks OMGCrackedACES wins the pot (1,140) with a pair of Aces *** SUMMARY *** Total pot 1,140 | Rake 0 Board: [Ac 4s Qc 7d 3c] Seat 1: GregX89X (small blind) folded before the Flop Seat 2: OMGCrackedACES (big blind) showed [Kc Ah] and won (1,140) with a pair of Aces Seat 3: Kekim1 folded before the Flop Seat 4: leeroydafish mucked [Qh Kd] - a pair of Queens Seat 5: Pokerfunboy folded before the Flop Seat 6: Ticiz folded before the Flop Seat 7: Rekan61 folded before the Flop Seat 8: KingSodomizer folded before the Flop Seat 9: DeGamblor (button) folded before the Flop
  5. I'm really not sure going back over it now! (re C-bet) I think I need to review my C-bet %s, particularly when I have hit!
  6. No reads on villian - only 10 hands in Any thoughts on my actions in this hand? Was that a poor call on the river by me given how I played the hand?

  7. Hi Eric, Please fill me in on how checking behind doesn't get you to a cheaper showdown? I'm not being a jerk but I just don't see how it can't get you to a cheaper showdown! Smaller pot equals smaller villian 3/4 pot size bet on river surely? You've also induced him to bluff by under-repping your hand. If he has the weak 10 or 7 it might be the only way to get value whilst getting you to showdown cheaply if you're behind and for the same price. Sorry for jacking the thread DJ!
  8. What was the purpose of the bet on the turn? a) to get value? b) to make a better hand fold? With a weakish hand you would be better to check behind on the turn and try get a cheaper showdown if you're not confident you have the best of it. With your opponent description it sounds like you're likely behind or he's defending top pair. I think your fold is fine given what you've said.
  9. 10 seconds of my life I'll never get back
  10. Find a girl who can appreciate your hobby. Life is just plain wasted if you're continually making compromises one way or another. It's like moving on from a job you hate, you are always better off in a totally happy space.
  11. I just powered through a 400 seat rush tourney. Bubbled in an hour and a half and smashed a heap of hands in that time. Felt real good being back "home". I missed a few little things that Stars has (like position tab) but I'm sure it will all fall back into place and it will be like we never spent time apart!
  12. 3bet shoving will remove variance and turn you into a pussy magnet
  13. Also try increasing your "I must double" stack size to 15bb. You're betting getting 15bb in at 40% than your are getting 8bb in at 60%. To win, you must be willing to die.
  14. Go through the bubble card dead? Not sure what stack you had, but you'll find at micros you don't need cards on the bubble. Position and (controlled) aggression can chip you up nicely. Sounds like you need to do some study to work out 3bet shoving strategy.
  15. Sounds like you're not getting any value out of your made hands or overvalueing them in very deepstacked poker. 2cents. And yeah, variance is the killer in live play.
  16. 6 Max

    UTG in 6max is really just MP in 9/10 seat. If you're uncomfortable raising your aggression levels a lot, just play your 9/10 but count seats from button to establish your range. This also means you'll be more comfortable as you're not really adjusting from your default game. Just realise some players will 3bet light more than a 9/10.
  17. Through my head I thought about almost everything you guys said. Here is the end of the hand. I guess I put him on a lower PP than board, Ax or Broadways. Figured I could still go over the top on the flop and be ahead. Maybe I levelled myself here ahahahaha Thanks for all the advice.... gives me a few things to think about. Flop: (1150000.00, 2 players) 5s 7d 8d SB bets 563,500.00, Hero raises to 1,236,582.00 and is all-in, SB calls 673,082.00 Turn: (3623164.00, 2 players) 8h River: (3623164.00, 2 players) 2h SB shows 8s Ts (Three of a Kind, Eights) (Pre 35%, Flop 74%, Turn 100%) Hero shows Qs As (One Pair, Eights) (Pre 65%, Flop 26%, Turn 0%) SB wins 3,623,164.00
  18. Hey guys, I'm probably being a little results driven but this hand left me confused. Down to the final 3 of a 1k+ player tourney. Need some advice as asked in bold below: PokerStars - $2+$0.20|40000/80000 NL - Holdem - 3 players Hand converted by PokerTracker 4: http://www.pokertracker.com SB: 2,500,776.00 Hero (BB): 1,806,582.00 BTN: 4,833,642.00 SB posts ante 10,000.00, Hero posts ante 10,000.00, BTN posts ante 10,000.00, SB posts SB 40,000.00, Hero posts BB 80,000.00 Pre Flop: (pot: 150000.00) Hero has Qs As fold, SB raises to 200,000.00, Hero raises to 560,000.00, SB calls 360,000.00 Should I have 3bet here or jammed? And why? What range should I be putting him on. He was running at 24/19 (I must assume all FT hands and includes short handed pbv) Flop: (1150000.00, 2 players) 5s 7d 8d SB bets 563,500.00, Hero raises to 1,236,582.00 and is all-in, SB calls 673,082.00 As played, am I right in shoving here given flop texture? Will post results after comments. Thanks in advance guys!
  19. Was the small turn bet (less than half pot) trying to induce a shove? I think you need to size this closer to 80% pot to make the villian call off with the wrong odds or more likely shove with the flush draw. As played, you've invested more than a third of your stack, but you still have enough to fold and have something to work with. You also need to consider why you are betting on the river here. Are you betting for value or as a bluff? What better hands can you make fold? What worse hands can call? Thinking about this before you bet can help you avoid awkward spots like this.
  20. Bring back Rush Bring back double stack, 90 seat turbos Bring back my black afro avatar
  21. Guess it would help knock back some reverse implied odds of getting stacked by 79s
  22. Grats JT.... love your work and your books. Hanging out for V3 next month I believe?
