Checking back a set in position
I feel like everyone is really focusing on the 13/9 but it's only 60 hands. I would still assume he is tight but 60 hands isn't exactly a huge sample. It is very possible he is playing a lot wider than that and has simply been dealt really really bad cards for a few orbits.

Question about my line HU in small tournament
Thanks for the input guys. I actually didn't think the hand through too much at the time. I arrived at the conclusion that he can't have anything and just shoved without thinking too much about it and instantly regretted not calling. He snap folded of course. Overall I am sure a call is very clearly better, but I just really didn't know what to do if he shoved since I wasn't sure at all if he was capable of continuing to bluff. My play against him the whole table was almost entirely preflop, and HU he was playing a little too weak and I thought I could run him over a bit. If I flat call flop ...

Question about my line HU in small tournament
So last night I am HU in the $3 $500 gtd on WPN and had this hand come up: Winning Poker Network (Yatahay) - 4,000/8,000 NL - Holdem - 2 players Hand converted by PokerTracker 4: Hero (SB): 151,137 BB: 397,863 2 players post ante of 1,000, Hero posts SB 4,000, BB posts BB 8,000 Pre Flop: (pot: 14,000) Hero has Jc Kh Hero raises to 16,000, BB calls 8,000 Flop : (34,000, 2 players) Ah 2d 7c BB checks, Hero bets 14,225, BB raises to 40,000, Hero' With me being so shallow, the HU game has been a lot of raise/shove from both of us, with the occasional raise/flat call. I think my opponent ...

Norm MacDonald Live
I sat next to Norm in a $100 SNG at PCA in 08 or 09. Guy was incredibly nice, and was cracking jokes the whole time. He was sitting on my immediate left and we chatted the whole game. I got 3rd and he got 2nd so we were talking for a good while. After I busted I was in the hallway talking to some friends when he walked up and shook my hand and said it had been a pleasure playing with me, stayed and chatted with me and my friends for a few minutes before leaving. Absolute class act.

Checking back a set in position
I mean I see these shoves a ton at lowstakes. I think even otherwise OK players do this quite often when they river it. I don't think there is a lot of thought process behind it other than "It is hard for me to get paid, so I might as well try to get the max when I do get looked up"

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'

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.
