Like that guy couldn't fold his FD when I hit top set. ach well!

I've played a lot of omaha on Stars, not hi-lo though, from 25.50-1/2 and did really well playing 6 max, much better than full ring. As mentioned I can't get $$ onto Ladbrokes at the moment and was bored of hold'em so thought I would come and join you chap :) You had a good stack iirc, well done :) $159+ from low limit cash on Laddies from just under 600 hands. Really enjoying the site so hears to the future ;) Was fun earlier on playing the SNG's with the BBS guys as well :)

At 50NL the profit is only important for building my bankroll so I can move up through the limits - I don't really mind how long this takes so long as I keep improving as a player and make better decisions.

Long-term my aim is to be a winning player at 200NL - I don't think that's too unrealistic given the quality of the level and the quality of the training I receive from Cardrunners.

Thats 1/2 yeh ?

Played that quite alot in the past....i think the standard of play is far better than at 10/20, 25/50 as your bets are a little bit more respected. Not so much room for maneouvre though...if you get into a pot you have to be prepared to pay for a fair amount to see cards. Can be very profitable though.

Yup 1/2.. I'm sure I'd get beaten up quite badly if I played that limit now - given enough study and practise I hope I can beat it eventually. From what I can see it's actually possible to make good money multitabling 1/2, and the jump to 2/4 is meant to be very tough so I can but hope!

SamTheOldGoat
28-08-2007, 05:53 PM
I disagree but haven't got stats to prove as I wasn' running office at the time. I personally think 1/2 is harder than 2/4 and maybe even 3/6. I don't know why but that's my opinion :)

This is a really weak play from me post flop I believe.

I only ever re-raise with AAxx, if I believe I can take the pot down there and then, but I get two callers.

I was already down $100, and I maybe should have thought about folding after the flop, but I didn't

You're certainly gonna make more gains than that Lowball person. I only ever raise with AAxx in position, and then not always. Your hand was a good candidate for a scoop if a 2 and/or 3 hits. I don't think it was too crazy play by you.

Thanks stranger. :)

I did actually put Lowball on a possible flush draw + good low draw. Wasn't worried about two pair or trips.
The other guy, I honestly had no idea what he could be holding and didn't even try to think, which is what is a bit disappointing about my play.

If I didn't have any possible type of low, I would probably have folded.

The guy who folded said he would have been correct to call, so he probably had 2 pair with the 8.

I think I was fairly fortunate to take the hand down, and considering I have a tight/solid table image it might make people think I play a bit looser than I actually do.

I get a huge amount of respect when I bet into pots and think I have been called on only one bluff in the last few days, although this may change a little now.

Thanks Sam,

Could you decent players take a look at this hand from near the end and let me know if I was being dumb. This guy (00Doug) gave me absolute pelters saying I was a massive ‘donk’ and he knew what cards I had so ‘insta-called’.

00Doug had been on my table three separate times in the tourney (a total of at least two hours) and had shown down a few bluffs. He was loose/aggressive throughout.

The top 27 cashed in this and I was just made up to make the final table (I still class myself a beginner). I told myself that I would be aggressive when it got down to 9 players. My image prior to that was one of a total rock – I folded pre-flop so much. I was aggressive when I was in a pot.

I noticed he had raised the button six times in a row (every time by 4xbb) when I was BB. The third time I re-raised the minimum but he called and bet the flop hard so I folded.
The sixth time I had OK cards, so I shoved. I was convinced he had rags, but figured even a marginal would be put down.

Anyway, he claimed to have put me on JQ or QK (a move of a donk, he said, but still called for a 50/50 race.

He gave me so much stick. Was/am I a donk, or was it sour grapes?

Absolutely nothing wrong with what you did.

You can't let yourself get pushed around by someone who is targetting you as an easy blind steal.

It would be a bit different if it was you who was calling the re-raise as you would only be getting 2-1 on a pretty marginal hand, but as it was you who pushed all-in, nothing wrong with that. I personally would have hoped for a slightly better hand, but those hands don't always come up at the right time.

I would probably have given him some real verbal aswell to really rub it in.

Done everthing right. Make exactly the same play as you as well. I make the shove and if he wants to be a 50/50 at best, he's an idiot. I will often reraise a button raise, especially at bubbling time or FT bubble, generally any 2 cards. Nice play imo ;)

I got berated for winning with AA last night, told I shouldn't play my aces like that, couldn't get him to understand that I had the best starting hand. I limped in with them which I had to do as everyone folded round to me in position, and caught a third ace on the river to give a full house over his flush. I'd previously lost all in AA vs J10 and AA vs QQ.

Had a shockingly bizarre hand today. Was on a table that was pretty placid, very easy to win small pots with small continuation bets. Got A4 in BB, no raises flop comes A 4 10 with 2 spades, I am last to act. First player raises to $3, 2nd re-raises to $6, I call the raise, didn't want to push all in (not a great fan of pushing with two pair). Turn comes down A for full house. They both bet out $6 which I obviously call. River is a 4, which also puts 3 spades on the board. First player checks, 2nd player raises to $12, I reraise all in for about another $40, both call.

Guy who raised $12 has a pair of 8s (what was he doing), and the other guy amazingly has A4 to split the pot. What are the odds on that with the board as well. :eek:

So, he was admitting that he's knowingly risking all his chips on a 50/50 shot and calls you the moron? It doesn't matter what you had or what you thought he had, you made your move, so the decision was his to risk all his chips. So he has no place to bitch at you if he was willing to gamble for his tournament. (of course that never stops people)

Yeah, but the 'no class' comment honestly wasn't about his play. It was about his comments to me.

It was pretty hilarious. The donk stuff you see all the time, but he said I was uneducated and probably had a 'labour' job!! He went on and on for about five minutes (even the other players started having a pop at him - though not about his play, hence my self-doubt). He went all-in every hand, and won a couple, but he was the next to go out.

I had a part in getting someones 'speech' option banned the other day.

He was mouthing off and swearing at another player, and a Laddies message came up and said something like Please refrain from using foul language at the table.

He stopped swearing but still was typing sarky comments.

I did a 'lol you muppet' at him and he started swearing at me.

Another Laddies message came up with This is your last warning. If you continue to use foul language your speech option will be removed.

I knew he was about to crack and he piped down until I typed 'Are you going to let them talk to you like that?'

He then starts swearing at me again. Next message is Your speech option has now been removed.

He was probably steaming when he couldn't reply to my 'You're not singing, you're not singing, you're not singing anymore...' :D

I'm in 10th place, 20 runners left (18 pay), blinds are 600/1200, and I have about 7.5K in chips and sitting in mid-position. Have kept pretty steady by stealing blinds. I get 10 10, everyone folds before me, with 4 to act behind. Push all in to steal the blinds, but get two reraises, running into QQ and AA.

I finish 19th and bubble by 1 position.

Was that the right call to make? If I waited another rotation, would have made the money at probably a cost of 1800K in chips that would have put my stack down to 5K and then make a move from there, or was I right to push and just got unlucky with a chance of doubling up and being in a position to win the tournament rather than get placed.

I just won a free entry into an $8k tourney on Full Tilt. But it's at 9pm US time and I need to go to bed. Can I transfer it to someone else?

I'm not sure he's an idiot Sam. If he folds he's down to less than 6BB in his stack and less soon depending on time of next level. He's getting 2-1 on a slightly better than even money shot and sometimes he's going to find he's been reraised by 77 66 55 - all in all I think he has to call the reraise with 88

just played my first tourney on Poker Stars. I may well be back soon! Finished third in 1100 runner £20k guarantee. Took nearly 7 hours - when 4th place busted i was short stack with 500k to leaders 1M each and reraised allin with 66 soon after. button flipped AJ and hit on river. Oh well - cant be greedy though! Annoying to go in favourite at that stage and lose the toss though!

Made up for the last week when run of luck dried up to dust. Have got looser and looser with frustration as one underdog after another hit me and everytime I pushed I was dominated time after time - when AA got called by 67s who flopped two pair I was ready to take up bingo instead. Got to the stage where I was torn between being scared to bet and reckless to the point of running a donkey masterclass - didnt know if I was coming or going and really had to work hard at convincing myself I was still the good player I thought I was. Paid off tonght where I finally got back to play TAG and reaped the rewards at last

Wouldn't have thought you were massive favourite with 66 vs two overcards. Well done for getting that far though. How much did you make. Serial donkey took most of my chips by calling with anything and everything, including donking out my nut flopped straight with 84 offsuit making full house on the river, and then in the next two hands doubling up someone else on the table. Managed to get one pot off him to just get my buy in back though before he disappeared with nothing.

Well no, but you know what I mean - I'd rather be in front than behind even if it is only 55:45!

about $1700 - a 6 on the board would have been another $900! expensive cards at that stage! Such fine lines between making it big and bigger when you think that one card would buy you into the tourney nearly another 50 times!!

Indeed. The only massive payout I've had was in a $100K GTD.

Was heads up, and had slightly less chips than my counterpart.

I'm dealt 88 and raise, he re-raises and I push all in.

He flips over (I think) K 10.

Flop comes down, and all rags, but a K hits the turn for him to win the tourney.

That K cost me over $6K...didn't sleep too well that night.

I do see what your saying although he'll have about 34k left with BB@4k so 8 1/2 BB's. I still think I make the pass but it's always different when your in the situation itself

In that situation with 88 I'm probably over simplying my future tricky decisions perhaps and some would say it's the cowards way out but I would have open-pushed, particularly if I think I'll call a re-raise.

Surely the whole point of raising with a hand like 88 is so you can get away from it if someone puts you all-in? Which is why I think I'd either raise 3BB or push.

Very much in agreement with your last paragraph Richie :)
Who is it on here who plays at the Rendezvous in Brighton? Going to shoot down tonight if you want to grab a beer before hand :)

Played some horrible cash on stars last night and tilted heavy, not usual for me and very frustrating when I opened up my Stars accound this morning :( Won a few hundred playing a couple of $100sngs with my bro so got some back but annoying none the less

Gonna be playing in Brighton tonight Sam, though it looks about 70/30 in favour of Grosvenor ATM, will confirm if we sort it out before I head coastwards.

Are the structures exactly the same between Grosvenor and Rendezvous - any pros or cons?

It was actually my first hand as I late registered. Meanwhile I just scraped though in the end - it was a satellite to Stars $400,000 later this evening. Bizarre hand for hand at the end where the BB was $8000 and putting about 3/4 of the field allin every time it came to them and yet it was about five hands before anyone got knocked out! Bit of a lottery

What goes around comes around. worked my way up to 80th of 2100 in the $400k and then had pocket 9s make a full house on the turn - got all the chips in against a huge stack only to find he had been sitting on flopped quads that was the only possible hand to beat me. Grrr...

How does that rake work Sam? Is it £8/hr between everyone at the table or each? Why don't they rake the pots like online?

I think it would be illegal to rake the pots in the UK - and probably quite hard to administer - so they effectively 'hire' the seats out to players.

Just £8 for everyone at the table playing £2/£2 and when the £5/£5 game runs its' a bit more I think, maybe a tenner. 9 seats at £8=£72 for casino providing one dealer who can't be on more than a tenner an hour and as you saw there were 2xtables running on Friday night. Did you watch me play cash Richie? Well done for finishing up! I managed to get 10k at the break with no rebuys when I was in a 5 way all in with kings and got paid heavy by Arag-99 :)

Adelaide (where I live) is 10% but there is no table charge.

The Crown is probably the best deal out of any casino in the world. Dealers aren't allowed to take tips (it is illegal), as well. This always gets a mention by Septics as it's such a big deal over the other side of the big pond.

Can't charge rake as poker is a gambling game totally dependent on luck not skill.

All you can do is note his name and track him down another time. He will give that money back to somebody (plus interest).

This guy sucks (http://www.officialpokerrankings.com/pokerstars/haham2004/poker/results/582824AF9A1A40BCB01F9DCD231AFC22.html?t=2)

Can't seem to crack $1k

Since my last deposit ($30) on Aug 24th, I've been determined to make some serious cash gains and really concentrate on my play. Well, within six days I had reached $1k, but I can't seem to crack it.
Since then (last five days), my bakroll has been as high as $1,090 and as low as $700 (mainly due to an aggressive $1/$2 table), but that is as far as I can get. Everyday I seem to drop about $150/$200, before pulling most of it back, but finishing up either a little bit down or a little bit up.

I think I loosen up as soon as I get over $1k and tighten up when I start dropping down to around $850.

So frustrating.:grrr:

tut tut - I very rarely play cash but I thought one of the principles was keep yourself topped up to avoid this happening? You got to keep it up at about $100 at least at 1/2 surely?

I was watching some Hi Stakes poker yesterday where the table had a side bet that anyone who won a hand with 7 2 got $500 from everyone else at the table.

A few people chanced thier arm but din´t have the balls until one guy got the hand and went in for $100, 000.

Unfortunatly for him the guy didnt believe his bluff and he drops nearly $130,000 trying to pick up $3,500.

:eek:

I love watching high stakes poker. Is there a new series out yet?

Chester

New series has people like Phil Ivey, laak etc in it. I think it might have been the first episode last night

SamTheOldGoat
04-09-2007, 04:07 PM
The new series started in the States last week and is on POKERTUBE already. I think the new one should be on there today which is episode 2 :)

Ya, didn't help that the guy with 7 deuce was up against a guy with quads! :D

Chester
04-09-2007, 04:19 PM
yes, not the best time to try and bluff your way through. :D

Was interesting to watch when you throw something in like that. The number of people of got away with big bluffs and put downs because of peoples thinking that they had a 72.

If anyone invents a selective mute button for Phil Hellmuth then i would be v interested in buying it please

Loved Hellmuth bluff Matusow off queens though :D

Chester
04-09-2007, 04:30 PM
He talks himself around in circles. I always think by the end of it he has got no idea whether he is coming or going.

That bluff on Matusow did make me chuckle though as did that kid pleeding to be allowed back into Hellmuth´s "circuit" after pissing him off.

Recent upgrade to Laddies s/w allows you to reload straight away and it will add it after the hand, before you used to have to wait until you weren't in a hand which was very annoying.

Just bubbled in tourney. Beaten full house over full house, he had Queens, I had 10s, no need to get involved in the hand. Only top 9 paid as well.


Then in cash game have 9 10, flop 678 and get beat with 9 turn river 10 by higher straight and immediate hand after that trip 4s run into a board of 4567 and have to fold.

05-09-2007, 07:54 AM
And why are you playing K4 sooted? And why aren't you folding AJ on that board and if you think it's bad luck when your 3 4 offsuit would have hit trips and busted Kings then your gonna think you're the most unlucky sod in the world, it happens all the time...

RichieG
05-09-2007, 08:21 AM
Are you a long term winner SoS? Only I thought Limit starting hand requirements we're tighter than NL, and I don't think playing K4s is profitable in either game.

I'm having a ball at 0.1/0.2 cash currently, now up $146 since Sep 1st, 57BB/100, not sustainable, but fun! Have tightened up to good effect though still running a bit too loose at 36/23/2.

Without any info on the player I'd go for the following analysis:

I don't think the 4 helped him.
I'd put him on one of the following hands:

Flush, over pair or flukey 2 pair.

I'm gonna root for QQ.

RichieG
05-09-2007, 12:24 PM
The guy in question sees 56% of flops and pre-flop raises 7.5% over ~100 hands. I also have a note on him that says he always calls a cbet, but often folds to the second barrel.

Obviously his $5 call after the flush card hits is what I was slightly concerned by, just interested to see if you would all call river here or whether some would consider a fold?

If he has the flush, why is he betting so big on the river ? I wouldn't be surprised to see him turn over JQ or a bluff. The river bet is too suspicious.

Just bubbled again (about 3rd in a row) in 10th (top 9 get paid), with a stupid A4 suited vs AQ, don't know what on earth I was doing, apart from that no mistakes, stole blinds well and was in a good position.

Got bluffed off queens earlier by 89 in cash game when raised to $7 on a KA2 board, with two people still in play. :rolleyes:

RichieG
05-09-2007, 01:42 PM
Okay, okay..........I'm glad the fold didn't occur to you, even though you said above you wouldn't call! I considered it briefly, and pressed call fully expecting to see him show a couple of spades. Then for some bizarre reason known only to Ladbrokes, despite me calling his bet, I show my Aces and he mucks!

I only posted to see if anyone folds it, I rarely fold Aces (can't remember ever doing it) and wondered if this was a spot where perhaps it should be considered, despite result.

Earlier in the same session I even had Kings hold up all-in pf against AJs, I'm beginning to think this online poker might not be rigged after all ;) :p

Finbar
05-09-2007, 01:44 PM
I want to know what he had :(

RichieG
05-09-2007, 01:48 PM
AQ / KQ / KK have to be the top three don't they? Potentially followed by K10 & AK for busted str8 draws? He was a bit odd, so could even have been a naked Ks looking to hit the 2nd nuts!

If I request the HH from Laddies will it show what he had? And if so how do you do that?

Finbar
05-09-2007, 01:56 PM
I wouldn't worry about it, maybe you're right about having four to a run or flush and then thinking sod it I'll put him all in when he didn't hit

Kind of stupid thing I would do!!

Gav The Hamster
05-09-2007, 02:02 PM
Richie - try the 'Game History', it may show what he had.

I cant imagine he had anything other than a busted draw otherwise why bet so big on the river.

se1eagle
05-09-2007, 02:04 PM
It's a tough hand cos his river bet does look like he's trying to take the pot away from you. If I had made my flush I'd be valuebetting the river rather than shoving it particularly bearing in mind your weakish turn bet indicates your not thrilled about the spade on the turn.

Did he insta-call the flop bet? If so I'd probably be very worried about the flush as quick calls generally mean drawing hands - he could possibly have KT/9T but it's less likely he's drawing to a gutshot.

I'd want to know his overall aggression factor but more importantly his aggression factor on the river, if it was significantly higher than his turn or flop aggression factor then I'd make a crying call. If he has a low river aggression factor then I'd almost always fold.

Also when I recently obtained hand histories from Laddies it wouldn't show me the mucked cards, which really sucks.

KevTheOptimist
05-09-2007, 02:46 PM

05-09-2007, 03:19 PM

If we do get to see the actual hand he had, I'm 100% sure it will show that he didnt have KK either. If someone called a small raise pre flop with KK they should be shot.

Not only that, he smoothcalled a PSB on flop with no concern to protect his hand against spade or straight draw, let alone an Ace. I know these muppets like to slowplay, but he'd have to be a total gibbering lunatic to have KK here

Hence why I am fairly useless at reading hand histories and putting people on hands. In fact putting people on hands full stop is definately an issue for me!!!

The raise on the river does smell like a busted draw but he could so easily have been slow playing a big hand like KK and making the river bet look like a bluff.....

:sob: dont be so hard on yourself ;)

But you as a semi-pro would not read a pre and post flop call as a monster hand like KK when there are straight and flush draws about if you were playing the game live yourself (I hope lol)

Absolutely don't bother trying to find his hand, what would it prove?

If it proved that he had nothing and you should have called, you will be cursing your first ever 'folded AA', and may not do so again.

You simply HAVE to be able to get away from strong starting cards (and that is all they are after all - starting cards), to be able to make money in this game.

It's impossible to be correct every hand, and folding AA there, regardless of right or wrong, was probably a good thing for your game overall.

Just tell yourself that you think he had you beat, and that you made a great laydown. :p

He didn't fold. He called and won the pot. That's why everybody is interested in what the other guy had. My guess is KQ, whatever reasonable hand he might have had should be thrown out the window. This is the "Online Poker Thread" after all.

Bet out and hope for lots of callers? Not so sure of the dynamics at limit, but you can't exactly check to the river and hope someone hits a FH or Flush to call your push can you!

Bet every street. 9, 10, FD, overpair, underpair to Q's are all in range here and I think you'll probably get called on 4th and 5th street.

Thinking about it again, I think I probably C/R from 1st position on 4th st and lead out on 5th.... rest of HH please?

Richie, will have a look at the HH in a sec mate :)

Was CL in £50r, with 10k at the break with no rebuys, then lost AA v 79 AIPF for half my stack then got too creative with a squeeze. Silly play and being in great position in last two tournies I've played live and made two stupid moves. Grrrrr

From those HH's you probably think I slow play AA and QQ all the time lol - I don't usually slow play but the QQ hand was self explanatory and the AA hand I just felt it was the best way to play in that position and players....

SamTheOldGoat
06-09-2007, 06:47 PM
QQ was obviously played fine, nh ;). Think you could/very nearly got yourself into a whole world of trouble with AA and got lucky when the river bricked out and they missed their billion outs. His larger than pot bet on the river was fishy, what did you think he had?

KevTheOptimist
06-09-2007, 07:01 PM
I know what you mean with the AA, I commented to the table something along the lines of 'Risky strategy there!'. I don't know why but was really worried one of them had KK and was loving the $5 bet and flat call on the river - to confirm I was winning.

The larger than pot bet was very fishy and to make it harder I had no info on the player. Put him on a weak Ace and thought if I lost it would be to a hand like A4. I remembered thinking I've lost when I called but thought I was beating quite a few possible hands.....

Fecking typical. Bubbled the last 3 tournaments. Get on final table and into top 4, and lose internet connection for no reason and get blinded out. Over 3 hours play and I didn't even get to finish. Even worse was over $130 up on cash tables completely dominating pots from poor players and time I got back on line it had kicked me out. Hells teeth.

Getting deja vu here, sounds like you need to sort that out. Costing you quite a bit of cash.

Connection is a lot better than it was when it was with AOL. Don't know if its a computer thing, as it just for some reason tends to lose ISP address (router still flashes green). Now, I am on a 4MB connection and it's running about one fifth the speed of dial up! Only happened twice with new provider, rather than every other day with AOL. Just at inconvenient times.

DANCOO

Don't know if it is an improvement in Laddies nwtwork, or my own, but I've probably only lost connection about twice in the last 2 - 3 months.

Is it wireless connection? Mine is always dropping out on my laptop. I left PC on downstairs last night as a contingency as I was deep into a huge tourney.good thing too as it dropped out when i was 10 of 20 out of 900 starters - the blinds were 3000/6000 and i had no time to sort it out!!

What Sklanksky books do you guys recommend. Buying 10 books now as want them in the collection and only borrowed before, obviously got Harringonton/Brunson/KillPhil etc, but looking for other NLHE that look into the 'higher level of thinking' if anyone can help :)

14th :hmph:

but i've had a 5th and 6th out of 400 odd since Friday and got into a couple of the Poker Stars WCOOP events next week so I am on the up again after a dead patch when I couldnt do a thing right.

The one I came 5th in was a nightmare for the first couple of hours. There was a player three to my left who only had two moves - fold or allin and we just couldnt get rid of him - he had unbelievable luck everytime he got called. But it meant unless I had one of the premium hands I couldnt play unless he was already folded (of course when I finally got AA and tried to limp call him he folded!). I had to lay down all sorts and it was tough going. He finally got moved off table but I kept an eye on his progress - he carried on stack building up to about third or fourth but ended up busting three out of the money - pmsl !!

Paul Romain
09-09-2007, 02:32 PM
and the 6th place last night I got AA in the big blind twice last night on the final table and everyone folded to me both times!
