wow... this is going to make for a spectacular crash and burn. I am currently in first place overall after taking down about a 70k pot. I had a feeling he was going to try to buy it, though I was a little worried about KK or AA I figured he would have pushed harder after the turn with a hand like that. I was a lot more worried he'd turn over QK and I'd get outkicked.

Wow looks like he just got tired of the long format. I would have folded after you bet on the turn. No way I stay in with what he was holding.

Yeah, that was just a bizarre call. I understand chasing the straight after the flop, and maybe 1/3 of the pot after the turn was not enough to dissuade him. And he still had the A so he was probably thinking of it as an 8-outer and not a 4-outer.

I didn't really think I was disguising my hand very effectively. If anything I would have probably put myself on KQ or AQ for betting like that. I guess maybe trip-2s or trip-5s.

I have had a great 3 hand run moving my stack from 65K to over 175K. Won one hand forcing someone to fold a better hand, then doubled up through the big stack by turning a straight when he flopped a set and then took out a guy when dealt a pair of 8s held up against AK and AQ with AQ all in - checked down. It seems that my table is going to break up so we will see where we end up. I have only lost two hands that I have voluntarily played.

With 30K left I shoved with A10, was called by AK and didn't improve. Good luck.

Hells yeah. I've timed out a few times so I decided to get aggressive.

02-16-2011, 10:28 PM
called someone's all in and doubled up when my AJ outlasted his A9. Still only at 50k though.

Well, I finally get something to play K-10 off suit...flop come AAK. Checked around to the big stack and he bets $9500. I'm sitting at about $50K, four guys in the hand. Looking like I'm gonna fold this one.

I'm a lot more aggressive than you. I'd probably call that.

It's easy to be aggressive when you're in the chip lead. ;)

My concern is someone is sitting with and A. Even if I hit my K or straight, I lose to the Full House A's over K's.

joncarlos
02-23-2011, 12:23 AM
I don't think I'm the chip leader any more. $9500 just seems like a strange bet for someone with ace-rag. If that was me I'd either bet less and try to induce a call/raise, or I'd bet a lot more.

I have to ask, why are you not using end game stack protection? IE, Harrington 1 and 2?


Playing Big Stack aggressive poker makes your chip vulnerable-- you might not play much, but when you're in you should be at least 60/40 if not better.

but then there is the Gus Hansen, play til you win it all or lose it all strategy.

Heh. Because I was bored and just didn't care anymore, I donkey-called the other short stack's pre-flop donkey shove (QJ offsuit) with 7c6c. I flopped open-ended, then rivered him with the 7 Of Spades.

So, still short-stacked at just under $60K, I've got Pocket 3's in the big blind. The other short stack, also at just under $60K, limped in with a $4K call under the gun. Strange move for a short stack with the blinds and antes totaling more than $15K - smells like the old limp-with-a-monster-and-pop-any-raise-all-in move. Or maybe he just doesn't know what he's doing. The big stack at the table just raised 3xBB. If it was just me and the big stack, I'd shove here, and take my chances in a coin flip. Probably not such a good idea against two hands, though.

In real poker news, I'm expanding outside of No Limit tournament play into No Limit cash games. I've been reading some books and blogs and doing some low-stakes experimenting online. I went up to Blackhawk yesterday for a test run and made $75 playing $1-$2. Definitely a different game than tournament Hold'em.

what books have you been reading? I was down at AC two weekends ago, but the buy ins for their March tournaments are higher than usual (some special thing going on) so I sat at a 1-1 table and lost a bunch of money. I was playing really stupid though and can fix a lot by just tightening up a bit. I actually lost $100 on one hand in a $1-$1 game where I knew I was beat. Just dumb stuff. :( I'm chalking it up to an expensive lesson.

heyelander
03-14-2011, 02:24 PM
It's funny... the first time I played in AC I played at a $2-$4 limit table. Limit poker sucks, and I didn't like the feeling of actually losing money. I thought I would like tournaments better because then I would already have paid and I wouldn't feel like it was real money. After playing in about 10 tournaments, going back to a cash game I found that I was playing like it was all free since I knew I could buy in again if I lost everything. Definitely the wrong attitude to have.

Yeah, a bit too much Hansen. Part of the problem is that these guys have been playing crap for a while now and JK and 77 looked like they should be 60/40 against their weaksauce ;) But fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, won't get fooled again.

heyelander
05-31-2011, 05:49 PM
so who finished highest here?

Anyway, let me vent for a moment... did I do something wrong?

I go to a casino saturday night. I get a seat at a $1-$2 no limit table. Buy in is between $60-$300. I'm use to a $100 top end buy in (different casino than I usually go to), so that's all I had planned to buy in for, so that's all I got. I sit down and the table is crazy. I think they are basically ignoring the blinds because the average pre-flop opening raise is between $10 and $20. From there the money jumps a ton (as it should.) In retrospect, writing this now I realize my mistake was the $300 buy in... oh well.

Anyway, I decide that I am going to play very tight. I don't want to play anything that will force me to make an iffy decision after the flop for what is going to immediately amount to half my stack. I fold a couple of low Aces, King-Jack and everything else that comes my way. I see a couple of cheap flops when everyone limps, but after an hour I've only played 2 hands. Finally I get pocket 8s. First guy to act bets $10, it folds around to me at 9. I call. $10 to see if I hit an 8, if not I'm out. button calls as well. Three to the flop. I figure first to act has two over cards and the button can have anything, just hoping the flop misses and they can take the pot. Flop comes 6-8-9 rainbow. I'm pretty damn tickled. Yeah, there's a straight out there, but I figure the guy I'm worried about has two over cards, and probably not the 10-J, although it's possible. He seemed like a bully. I wonder if I should check if he checks, hoping he hits something. He makes it easy for me and bets $20. I figure that's plenty of profit for me, $20+$30+$3 will let me play tight for another couple of hours! So I raise to $60. The button, out of the blue goes all in for $100. After thinking for a while, the first guy folds, and since all I've got left in front of me is $15ish, I call. I show my 8's and she shows her 7-10. *sigh*

Did I **** anything up here aside from sitting at a table I maybe shouldn't have been at?

GwynnInTheHall
05-31-2011, 05:55 PM
Passive play at an aggressive table is always a recipe for disaster. If you pop the 88 to about 40 the 7-10 might not have called-- hell I'd even shove with 88 at table like that-- you might get beat, but you'll leave earlier and have time for something else. I watch this every night-- guys play tight hoping to catch a hand while the more aggressive guys steal pots, blinds and suck out on you. It's very hard to hit the perfect flop playing short stacked and tight, it happens-- but not as often as you'd think it would.

In the future-- never play a game short stacked and always be the aggressor if you can.
