Checking back a set in position
First of all, pre black friday triple crowns don't mean much. I've been out of the game for years so I'm just a lowstakes donk now. If you check/raise 66 here in that guys spot, you are probably in big trouble if you get jammed on. Like best case scenario is something like TXdd which is a almost a straight coinflip. You don't get many better hands to fold, maybe something like A8s, but that seems hard for OP to have, and even if he does have that, he might not fold since there are all the draws in the world out there now. You charge other draws like flush draws, but unless you make it huge ...

I think 66 can definitely flat turn. But yeah it is a weird spot, I kinda wish he called just so we know lol. edit: I actually think check/raising 66 is pretty terrible there, but it will probably lead a lot on that turn. So idk

Because I don't think 55 or 77 is shoving here, and 77 is almost certainly raising turn. Maybeeeeeee 55 But yes, villain could be a spaz.

Chester Bennington from Linkin Parks commits suicide
Like I said, I haven't listened to them since middle school, but everyone has different tastes, and they certainly have made some interesting music throughout the years. Why can't we all just be ok with the fact that some people like the music without resorting to making fun of them for it' edit: nvm, I forgot what forum I was posting on for a second

Chester Bennington from Linkin Parks commits suicide
Well for any of us that are late twenties/early thirties, it is likely that Linkin Park was a lot more relevant in our youth than Nirvana was. I love Nirvana but I was 6 when Kurt Cobain died, it wasn't exactly super impactful for me at the time.

WWYD On This River?
ha yeah this is definitely a spot where I might make an incorrect fold to a worse J against a mega fish. It is hard without good reads to separate how people "should" be playing and how fish actually are playing. That being said, I still don't think mega fish are often going to play QJ this way. If they are that bad I think they are more likely to just try and get it in on the flop with a larger raise. Maybe not though.

Chester Bennington from Linkin Parks commits suicide
Hybrid theory was my fucking jam in 7th grade. Haven't listened to them much since, but this is still really sad news. Wasn't expecting this at all, but I wasn't aware that he was abused and suffered from substance issues, so knowing that it isn't as surprising.

Checking back a set in position
60 hands is certainly not enough to call him a nit, I've had plenty of times where my own stats were like that in a tournament over that kind of sample just because I wasn't getting anything playable. Also him being a nit here would probably make me more likely to call, not less. Most of the hands we are worried about here are unlikely to be raised UTG by a true nit. You say this could easily be a worse hand, do you mean that he could easily be bluffing' Because I don't think there are any worse hands that are doing this for value. Like I said I strongly suspect this is 66. It is really the ...

Also, I have over a million in winnings from online poker, but according to you in a PD thread that doesn't qualify me to speak on the profitability of online poker, so why would you having a measly 50k in winnings in any way qualify you to speak about fantasy'

Can you PLay nj online poker for a living or are the games no longer profitable since
I get that you think that, but it isn't true. I personally know many people who have been professional players for over a decade with no other sources of income. I did it myself for 5 years before black friday.

I mean, that is 100% untrue. Many many people have sustained long careers without any other income... Granted a lot haven't, but its not like its impossible.

Checking back a set in position
I think checking back the set sometimes is fine, but don't always do it. This isn't the worst board for it since there aren't a lot of draws and the ones that are there are unlikely to be opening UTG, and are likely to be betting flop. The only problem I have with it is that when the opener checks to you heads up you should be firing a lot of hands probably, and you want to have some sets in that range too since it is going to be air usually. On the river you lose to JT, 66, 99, A6s, maybe 67s, 56s, and maybe if this guy is super out of line some stuff like T6s or 46s. I think JT is very ...

For 9 bettors and 9 horses a draft of any kind is insanely unfair anyway. Random ftw. This will be a fun sweat. Happy with Sinclair even being so short

What is your Uber customer rating?
It isn't that it is a strange world over there, its that any industry where tipping becomes expected, tipping loses all value. I love the concept of tipping as a reward for excellence above and beyond the regular service, but when it is expected then what is the point' Just charge me more and don't expect anything.

What is your Uber customer rating?
I'm pretty torn on the tipping thing. On one hand, I have had several drivers who I thought were exceptional for whatever reason, and would have loved to tip but I had no cash. On the other hand, not having tipping is a big part of the appeal for me. I love that there is no monetary transaction directly with the driver. I've had cabbies argue with me over tips before, I'd rather remove that stress from the equation entirely. I know it all happens after the fact with Uber, but it still irks me. I would rather pay 20% more if I knew it was going to the drivers and just never deal with it. Yes ...

Is limping with AA or KK ever smart?
If you are thinking about limping AA or KK, then it probably isn't in a situation where you should be worried about being balanced. There are certainly times when limping these monsters can be very effective. Just make a read of the table, how they think of you, and try and decide if it is something you think will pay off. In general I don't think you should, but it can be easy to get super caught up in making the "right" play, and being balanced, but there are many many situations where playing exploitably is far more profitable. It is very important to realize moments when the GTO play ...

Game of Thrones Season 7 - There will be spoilers and speculation-
Yeah I have no problem with a cameo, the whole scene just seemed out of place. Agreed Boutros, it just felt like it was just shoved in there with no real relation to the context of the story. If something somehow builds off of it then I think I'll be a lot more ok with it.
