Didnt you hit the nut flush though? If so why would you split the pot

I did but I'm talking about the villian thinking he's splitting the pot.

The board was AxKsQsJxTs

Out of position, hit the nut flush on the turn, get HU action against an unknown but quite sure he's a moron. I've been the aggressor on all streets.
The river card creates an ace high straight board.
Deep stacks and there are about 50BB's in the pot.

First to act, how much do we bet to get a call?

You suspected he was a donk, I think he struggles to put down the nut straight.
Besides I think betting 3/4 pot looks alot stronger then a bluffy shove especially when you've been betting every street.

A7 offsuit from out of position was the play becos they were afraid of me on that table that night so i was getting in on most mediocre hands. i made sure i was calling small pots down with complete crap so they thought i was a donk then when i had summin i splashed the pot and they kept thinking i was bullshi*tting so i eventually came away with nearly 6 times the buy in on that table which is a record for me. entered with 50 and left with 275

Betfair standard is so bad. Blinds at 1000/2000 people with 3000 chips waiting for a better spot every time. I'm just shoving all in most hands and getting a stupid amount of respect.
Doubling up without seeing a flop is fun.

Randomly reading Annettes blog and she agrees.
Surely she cant slate the betfair players that much in the official betfair annette blog?

Refering to betfair -"One specific thing that I've noticed is that ppl play really tight when they're shortstacked. They dont shove any two if they have 7bbs in the CO and its folded to them. I kept making the same mistake isolating medium strngth hands like KJ, A2, 33 vs them thinkign they're on any two cards but they dont seem to care if they get very short. So after seeing this and adjusting my ranges accordingly I've stayed out of situations that I used to get into too often
Enough about that... dont want them to know the mistakes they're making :), "

i have now decided that if i am on tilt i should go down to these limits and throw caution to the wind if i feel like it. But what actually happens is i do well against ppl hu don't know what their doing and it gives me more confidence going back into the 0.50/1$ games that i am still 8/9 tabling at the moment. Due my weekly rakeback on tuesday..... can't wait. Told my mate how much i get in just bonuses on will hill and it turns out if i break even and just had the bonus i earn the same amount of money as him and he works 9 hour shifts 5 days a week.

Funny stuff, our man is miles behind his range assuming he's hit a bit of the board, (unless of course he's shoving with complete air, quite possible with this moron I suppose) another buffoon to act behind us as well. I'm sure we could find a better spot to get all his chips but well played anyway. ;)

Always funny to see a stack shover get busted trying to "win" a miniscule pot.

Both coolers for both players in those hands. Not much you could have done on the first, possibly pushing all in on the turn, if you smell a set might have taken the pot down if the other player was good enough to lay his set down.

Min raise on turn for second hand is worrying, what are you doing if you miss FH on river?

oz_da II

02-06-2008, 11:26 PM
Funny couple of hands - always nice to lose the 80BB one and win the 180BB one! Just my thoughts - not sure I'd have actually played it any differently...

In terms of max value, I think we probably should bet the turn on the first hand - I think it's likely that one of our two villains has a high spade after the flop bet and call and whilst betting the turn will fold out any sets, we're not going to get much value from a low set anyway now the board has four-flushed, but there's value from a Ks

I'm not sure checking the turn induces a bet often enough - after two calls to his flop bet and the fourth spade on the turn I think he checks behind here a lot.

oz_da II
03-06-2008, 12:13 AM
I should have posted up the comments from the villian after the latter hand.
Don't think he likes me. He's done some strange stuff. Funniest one was him 4-betting and double barrelling (deep stacks) with 57o in a blind battle (no draws, nothing), I called down from the SB with AQs with an ace hitting the flop (a bit of an extra tilt inducing play).

I know you've already said as much but I think betting the flop in the first hand is a must.

oz_da II
03-06-2008, 12:58 AM
Sorry, I should have posted up the opponents stats.

I think I played the flop ok as I got what I wanted. I've got an agro bloke on the button and a calling station to his left and I've got them putting money into a pot where they are drawing extremely thin (possibly drawing dead). Maybe I didn't play the turn correctly but I was preparing for a check raise because the agro bloke frequently double barrels.

Yeah it is actually close. Depends what sort of range he puts you on.
Bored at work so I've had a look at it. I've assigned you a range which I think should be accurate (maybe it could be a bit tighter).

Jeff Wiedenhoeft Eliminated in 10th Place ($52,021)
On the very first hand since play resumed, Jeff Wiedenhoeft opened the pot for 125,000. Mike Ngo, in the small blind, was the only caller. Ngo checked the flop of 8h 7h 6h , then called after Wiedenhoeft pushed all in for over 700,000 chips. Wiedenhoeft: Kd Tc Ngo: Ah Tc Wiedenhoeft immediately started shaking his head. He came over to his family on the rail and said, "First final table and I screw up! I read my cards wrong. How do you make a final table at the World Series of Poker and misread your cards?" The turn Ad meant the only card that could help Wiedenhoeft on the river was a 9 for a chop. The river instead came Qc and Wiedenhoeft was bounced, $52,021 richer for the experience.

Where do they find these idiots?

In a battle of the blinds just before the break, Lee Watkinson hit a set of sixes when the flop came Js 5s 6c . When the Tc turned the other player bet and Watkinson raised. His opponent thought Watkinson had moved all-in and tabled his hand--pocket Queens. But Watkinson hadn't gone all in--he still had chips behind and the opposing player took his hand back. The river was the 7h, and although everyone at the table--including Watkinson--knew what he had, the other player moved all in. Of course, there was no way he was going to win another chip--if Watkinson couldn't beat QQ he'd just fold. But if Watkinson COULD beat QQ his opponent stood to lose his stack, and that's exactly what happened. Watkinson tabled his sixes, took down a massive pot, and his dejected opponent headed out of the Amazon Room.

It gets worse...

From Pokernews.com...

No Royal Treatment Here
Kathy Liebert and Jan Von Halle to her right were just involved in a hand in which Liebert checked the river and Von Halle checked behind. Sure, this isn't too big of a deal, but Von Halle checked behind with a royal flush.

As soon as the hands were turned over, Andy Black, Joe Sebok, and Amnon Filippi all jumped from their seats and yelled for the floor to come over. Von Halle was given a warning for collusion as he checked the absolute nuts last to act on the river.

The other players at the table chuckled, but all understand the seriousness that can ensue. The tournament directors that came to the table didn't find this a laughing matter at all.

Ive been following it all week, the stories are horendous

I like this one though


Ferguson Refuses to Die

The Cinderella story continues for Chris Ferguson, who was down to just 7,500 chips when we were at blinds of 4,000 / 8,000 / 1,000 and had to post a small blind of 4,000 and an ante of 1,000.

On this hand, Theo Tran opened the pot for 90,000. Ferguson, slow and deliberate as always, took approximately twenty seconds before moving his whole stack of 539,000 chips into the middle. Action folded to Aaron Coulthard on the button, who tanked for at least a minute before raising all in for over 1.5 million. A gasp went up from the crowd as the blinds and Tran folded and got out of the way.

Ferguson was in the lead with {9-Spades} {9-Hearts} but had to dodge the {A-Spades} ***-Spades} of Coulthard. He did so when the board came {7-Clubs} {J-Diamonds} {6-Hearts} {5-Clubs} {6-Diamonds}. After the end, Theo Tran pounded the table in anger, suggesting that he may have folded ace-jack.

Phil Hellmuth...Being Phil Hellmuth
A bit frustrated after losing a few pots Phil Hellmuth announced to the table, "That's it, I'm raising every pot, I'm here to gamble". Under the gun he raised to 2,000 and had one caller before another player (with about 10,000 in his stack) raised to 7,500. Hellmuth pushed, the original caller folded, and the player who raised and who'd already committed about 3/4 of his chips...folded. Hellmuth showed the Qc 6s and declaimed, "Who do you think you're playing? I can read them...I can read their souls. Not today baby, good luck bluffing me".

Got to call with any two, unbelievable...

That's right, forgot you worked with him!

Safe to say he had a very good time, free tickets to FA Cup final and free tickets and flight who wouldn't??? :)

Not sure of a site you can see what's happening, Grant Hinkle has 7.6m chips to James Akenhead's 4.1m

20min break, english guy is now slight chip leader for the first time, both players exhausted apparently! It massively overran till abut 5am yesterday, then they resumed at 1.30pm and now it's 4am their time, earning their money at least!

Where Do We Go From Here?

After an hour and fifteen minutes of heads up play, we're not much closer to deciding the outcome of this tournament. In that time, we have played 39 hands. Only eight of them have seen a river. Two hands were ended on the turn, and four hands were won with a bet on the flop. The rest were taken down preflop. Neither player seems willing to take much risk, although James Akenhead has definitely been applying more pressure on Grant Hinkle than the other way around. The crowd is starting to lose interest, with several spectators yawning and rubbing their eyes. Interestingly, we are now off the structure chart that Harrah's provided to all players at the start of the tournament. That chart (optimistically?) had only 28 levels. We are now starting Level 29, blinds of 80,000 / 160,000 with an ante of 20,000.

Ouch, what a way to lose for the Brit, AK losing to 10 4, not sure they are showing up when I paste below

Grant Hinkle Wins Event #2 - $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em ($831,462); James Akenhead Eliminated in 2nd Place ($520,219)

Hand #160 - Grant Hinkle has the button in Seat 10. He raises to 350,000. Akenhead tries to pop it up again, this time by raising to 1.2 million. Hinkle moves all in and Akenhead quickly calls. Here it is! The moment we've been waiting for over the last two hours. Akenhead is the one who is all in. The hands are opened: Hinkle: Akenhead: Wow, a stone bluff from Hinkle and now he's in very rough shape. The shouting has begun from the gallery, who have all suddenly found that last reserve of energy to remain on their feet. Side bets are being made on what the flop will contain. Here it comes... Pandemonium in the Milwaukee's Best Light All-In Lounge! Akenhead is dead to running cards. The crowd is absolutely floored. Akenhead cannot believe his misfortune. He knows he's on thin ice. And just to add insult to injury... Hinkle makes quad tens! Akenhead is drawing dead. The meaningless river completes the hand. Akenhead is eliminated in second place and collects $520,219. Grant Hinkle is the winner of Event #2. He earns $831,462 and a coveted gold bracelet for his triumph. The winning hand was the all-powerful .

I think he played the main tour for a year in 9 ball and was highly rated and made quite a leap in the rankings and got to the latter stages of a few events.

Judging by your last post though it seems that he has now made more from poker than he ever can dream of making from pool :D

I might have a relatively cheap trip out to Dublin for the APAT event if anyone wants to come . Group of 4 of us are going. One person maybe however pulling out.

We are flying out on the Friday afternoon and returning on the Monday afternoon. We are staying in self catered accomodation in some university halls near the city centre. All single rooms and it is a flat of 4 with a kitcken, lounge and 2 bathrooms.

In relation to cost you would need to change the flight name over. You would also need to pay part of the APAT seat cost. All in all I dont think it would cost including the seat,accomodation and flight more than 100.

If anyone is interested let me know. The guy still maybe able to go so this isn't 100% guaranteed but the offer is there!

I'm sure as most on here know I no longer play hold'em, but about a month ago I played a handful of hold'em step 1 and step 2 ladders. Well I won a couple of each and in turn won a few step 3 buy-ins and in turn won two step 4 buy-ins (the final step).
Well I played one yesterday and came 2nd, and one today and came 1st. Pretty soft, even by my low standards. :p

Yes, but you tend to need some luck to get through the early levels. Had QK crushed by Q3, when the short stacked big blind pushed all in on me, then spent the rest of the game getting berated on what a donk I was despite the fact he only had 3 outs! Then AK went all in vs QQ, hit my K but he hit his 7.5/1 set as well, though must admit before have got up to level 5 with not much opposition, though believe some of the pros buy in at 5 and 6 to try and get cheap entries to events?

Chester

Just to show how mad the rebuy is.


How Much Did it Really Cost?

We've heard some speculation about how many rebuys some of the players made during the rebuy period two days ago. Yesterday we learned that Sam Simon, producer of the ever-popular television series The Simpsons, managed to take 41st place without having to purchase a single rebuy.

Today we've learned that one player, Suk Sung, purchased twenty-three rebuys. Suk Sung didn't managed to make it to the money, but if Suk had, Suk would have needed to take 9th place or higher just to make back what was spent.

We're not sure how much these remaining six players spent during the rebuy period to get to this final table, but rest assured, however much it was, they've made it back. Plus some.

How does everybody feel about flat calling UTG on a cash table with Aces and hoping for somebody else to raise? Does anybody else think that it's particulary obvious when (if raised) it goes back around to the person UTG that they have a monster when they re-raise?

beef
08-06-2008, 10:36 PM
I don't really think it's a good move. To a half-decent player it is a really transparent play and when it doesn't work out you find yourself in a small pot, out of position with 4 callers and a drawy board.

iamanuplander
09-06-2008, 07:10 AM
i actually find the above play very good in tournament play as you get short stacks moving in all the time, and also rash all ins that you can just call and it is a decent way to disguise strength.

In cash i opt to call UTG with Aces as well but obviously ure only doing this if ure pretty certain ppl will fold to ure utg raise of 3xbb there. With the call utg ure definately looking for a raiser and then you have to asses how many are in the hand when it goes back around to you. If their raise has knocked all but you out of there you should flat call then proceed to playing cleverly on and post flop. If it has kept 4 ppl in you need to get a feel of the table and pop a re raise you feel will only keep 1 of em in, and not too strong a raise to scare the crap out of them.

I do believe it can be a successful play in cash especially on a tight table.

I played my first live MTT on Saturday in Brighton. Top 14 got payed. I finished a respectable 28th out of 141. Played really well and never actually had a monster hand. I never had AA ot KK. The best I had was QQ or AK.

Anyway, ended up going out when I pushed my KJ into A9. The Ace held up and I was off.

Very enjoyable day and I will be looking to do one of these tournaments once a month as I felt quite comfortable at the table.

How did you find the crowd at the Rendezvous? I played a Friday rebuy down there about three weeks ago and there were so many grumpy people.

I did meet one Palace fan though (a radio sports journalist) - seemed a thoroughly nice bloke.

Thanks. The crowd were all people from Sky Poker as it was arranged by them so they were pretty friendy. I had Richard Orford on my table and Dave Bland from Bluff magazine (I actually knocked him out with QQ).

I did have a drink the bar later and there were some very odd people about! It's a 2 hour train journey for me so not sure if I'll be there again. Luton is going to be my new local as it's only 20mins on the train.

Not a good flop for Aces, and unlikely to get much better turn or river. I'm either going all-in to the reraise or folding on the flop.

Definitely horrible. We took a minibus taxi load of nine down from TW and had 3 final table (6th, 3rd and 2nd). The blokes that came 6th and 3rd from our mob only took the add-on.

Bloke who won made 12 rebuys and the add-on. Still made a hearty profit mind you, but if he'd come anywhere but top 3 it would have been a loss. The bloke in our party who lost the heads-up had a massive lead - he gets bored quickly though :clown:

I had a really miserable starting table - some old biddy called Pauline with the craggiest face I've seen and an outlook to match. Wanted to tell everyone how to shuffle, how to deal a flop, how to deal with the muck etc. When she fecked up a rebuy+add-on (had over the minimum stack) one bloke took great pleasure in calling the TD over to hit her stack for level 2. It was the only smile I cracked until I got a table move.

I'm not really sure why the woman in her thirties next to me was even there. Had a face like thunder from the first hand and was complaining about the passive table but did nothing to try to own it.

Having said all that I will go again. Our group still had a good laugh and it was very profitable.

Not a fan no?

Lol, you'll be pleased to know I didn't.

In fact, I raised 3x the BB and everybody else folded to which some expert at the 10c/20c tables with me said "if you had Aces or KK or something there, that's a terrible play" - :p

Was at the rendezvous on friday actually for the 10 rebuy.
Got knocked out early in that and played the 2-2 cash dealers choice game. I was in for 150 got it up to about 450 and then lost a 1k pot!

Omaha

-UTG Straddled to 5
-Everyone calls round to me on CO
-I make it 40 to go with AA89 double suited
-3 callers
-Flop comes 567 rainbow
-UTG goes pot
-I move all in with the nut straight and get called
-He flips 6648 for middle set and wraparound straight
-I pray the board doesnt pair
-Turns good
-Rivers good
-Noone notices but the dealer that he has a 6 high flush!

And yes there really are some grumpy old men down there!

Wounder Sam! It's dejecting losing pots like that! I was playing 6 card omaha and in a HUGE pot the other week, obviously the spaz dealer messed up with the river when we both got it in so had to be redrawn from the deck and obv I lose. Jeeeeeeeeeeeez.

I agree with what Annette says about raising as a bluff/for value, but you never said anything about raising to find out where you were so I think you were misunderstood. You were suggesting a raise for value and protection.

I tend to agree with Annette - but also because villain is a decent player and I think weak leading with two pair, 888 etc is within his scope. As she says you raise, he shoves, you fold. Call flop, check turn is how I play that there.

I played the 150 seat one on Full Tilt earlier but had a my set outdrawn early on.

Came 2nd for 2.3k in a knockout tourney on FT earlier today which stopped the recent downswing though. Been having a nightmare time. 3 outers are 90% against me at the moment lol!

Laddies dealt their billionth hand the other day, anyone who racked up 50pp's (very easy, even on micro limits), gets entry to their WSOP freeroll.

20 WSOP seats + 200 WSOP daily final seats up for grab.

Only around 3500 entered so far. :D

Went out in 175th for a daily final place.

Sitting in 65/176, mid position I push with QhTh, called by BB with AhJh...jeez!

And I'm out.

Actually, what do people make of the hand I went out on.

Average stacks are 50k, blinds 3k/6k. 10 seat table

I'm sitting in around 65/176 with around 50k - top 20 get WSOP package.

Table is in 'all-in or fold' mode due to the blinds, and people are throwing away a lot of medium pairs and A's with decent kicker to shoves.

I've a fairly tight image, being called with AK + top pairs.

I open-shove with Qh Th from UTG+3, obviously hoping to pick up the blinds.

Folds round to BB, who thinks for a while and calls with Ah Jh, for nearly all his stack.

I go out.

At the time I just thought, 'oh well, sleep now', but this morning I'm not only thinking it was a poor play by me (pushing so far out of position), but also it was a poor call by him, calling almost his whole stack against someone who has a solid image.

I had plenty of time to pick a better spot, but I think the fact that I hadn't played a big tourney in such a long time maybe was part of making such a rash decision.

Anyone?

SamTheOldGoat
17-06-2008, 08:24 AM
I agree Dan. Assume no antes in the pot at this point then mate?

I'm folding the QT and holding on till I do have a half premium hand or in position when I chan shove ATC.

What was villains image Dan?

DANCOO
17-06-2008, 08:37 AM
No antes, but for some reason that Qh Th looked so pretty. :love: :D

He had not been at the table very long, but pretty much everyone was folding to a push, and only calling with AK, maybe AQ and TT+

This is a huge weakness of mine (in hi/lo tournies as well), I seem to just switch off for a second and do something stupid, which usually puts me out of tournies.

I hate to think about the amount of times I've been in a great position in a tourney and have had a 20 second brain fart, and found myself out!

Will probably start playing a few more hold'em tournies in the near future, but will still stear clear of the cash tables.

I prefer to shove QT than, for example, AT there - mainly because you're less likely to be dominated if called. But I think I would be waiting for a better spot. QT would be ok with say 35-40k stack maybe - I'm giving it one more orbit...

But well done - you got a helluva lot further than I did :)

Dunno - is Blue Square Ipoker? played a few sats to their ECOOP without success recently.

Been playing a few on Stan James Poker which seems pretty soft - I think thats different to ipoker tho.

Continuing to experiment with some of these smaller sites where their "big buyins" are smaller than the major sites but offer less stiff competition for what is still decent prize money. SJames major on sunday is $60 rebuy with 175k guarantee - has a big overlay and is fish rich!

Any one playing in the Forum challenge up in Blackpool in July. I think I am going to be playing for the APAT first team if I play but just wondering if any one is going to be playing for any of the other sites?

Should be a good weekend and havent been to blackpool for ages so should be a good weekend away!

Guessing that no one is playing in the Forum challenge. If you can make it that weekend try and get yourself involved. Should be a good weekend and a lot of good players taking part eg teams from the Hendon Mob, Gutshot etc.

Also just been invited to take part in a stacked up competition which is broadcast on the Sky Poker Channel. Filming is going to be next tuesday. Not 100% I am going to play as I need to take the day off work and also it is a cash game. My cash play is quite poor/moderate so I could end up embarassing myslef. Could be fun all the same and the start of my TV poker career!

standard shove at PS it would seem, players will call any hand when shoving esp. off short stack they did it with QJ vs my AK to risk 20% of their stack and they flopped FH.

Really doesn't matter what position they are in, always likely to get one to shove with virtually ATC.

I disagree entirely, with KJ and 7 people behind you left to act your going to be dominated by a hand behind you alot of the time.
Calling on the BB knowing it just going to be you and the shover is a far safer option.
On the FT of a big 45k guarentee after an 8 hours grind I certainly dont risk 75% of my stack with 7 players behind me by calling a shove from a nit in UTG with KJ off.

Yes, that's fine. Not saying you would do that, but you do find plenty of players who will, or someone who will have played for 6 hours like you say and get all in pre-flop with AK for their whole stack.

That depends whether you want to win the tournament or go up a few places. If its the latter, you can fold every hand and hope a couple get knocked out, on a vibrant table it's a possibility you can go up a few spots. It's not the greatest hand to push with but with blinds at 800, you're possibly not going to get much better, but also likely you are going to get called as well. You've made the move as well so representing medium to strong hand which is always better then betting behind someone, unlucky to run into QQ.

My thoughts exactly, a fair player but ggod enough to take a bracelet, I'm not sure. Although to make an impression, he's going to have to get lucky, he's amongst the short stacks, and will have to double up fairly early to get in the mix.

I suppose if alright is enough to get to a final WSOP table, I'd settle for that.

lol true, but if you play enough events you will reach the final table of 1 or 2! Also the WSOP is not actually a very good standard contorary to popular belief.

(Ive played with Greco a couple of time by the way so im basing it on that!)

Didn't last long today, a tad unlucky though...

Hand #24 - Greco Eliminated in Ninth Place ($22,573)

Passed around to Michael Greco who makes it 40,000 to play, the action stops on Bell who riffles his chips meticulously. Bell deep reaches for a reraise of 100,000. Back over to Greco who pushes all in. Bell calls! Bell = Ac Ad Greco = Kh Kd Cooler than a cucumber in the North Pole. Board = Ts 7c 5d Turn = Tc One of two outs remaining... River 8s The former Eastender's cliffhanger finishes on a sad note and he leaves in ninth place to a warm reception.

Looking through my stats tonight (database of 77,000 hands).
Crazy stat of the day:

AK is my most costly hand losing 1BB/hand (695 hands)
AKs is my 3rd biggest earner earning 6bb/hand (216 hands)

Wondering if he hits the flush (higher there as well), it's strange play on the flop, if he has a set, he surely has to raise on that board? I don't like to flat call turn, if he is drawing to a FH or higher flush, you won't know where you stand on the river when a scare card hits. Again if you raise and he calls and a scare card comes and he bets out, you again don't know where you stand, so I'd reraise all in on the turn, and either take a reasonable pot down there or go into the river ahead.

Just done my filming of "stacked up". Our team finished with a profit, however I made a loss of just over half of my stack!

Had a good first half and then got caught on two hands, both when the other player caught a straight on the flop which I couldnt get away from! Anyway, the coverage is next week at 9pm on channel 846. Think our team is 2nd overall in the leaders board.

First hand of the night and I'm looking at AA in the BB, bit of action before me, I 4-bet, one caller, dry board of 488, I c-bet, he shoves, I call. He flips over AA!!!

Then we end up losing about a dollar each due to the f'ing rake. :clown:

I think I stuffed this one up, I called the raise, river was a blank and he shoved his stack, seemed strange so I called and I took the pot when he flipped over KxKh, so I gave him a free card which can't be good.

Strange play by him on the river (not to mention the rest of the hand...).

As I said if you flat he fires river. Just so happens he fires river if you raise too imo!

Funny stuff, one of the graphs shows if he ran all his "all-ins" 10,000 times he could expect to make less money on only 3 occasions... :eek:

Recently joined an AFL BBS and there are a few poker related threads, have a read of this guy's theory in relation to playing AK first hand in a tournament...

If it's a donkament, there is a reasonably good chance of a call from Ax.

And theres a reasonably good chance that he'll hit with his lower card, and your out straight away.

I will quite often fold my first hand no matter what it is. Yes I have folded many good hands (including AA) only to see that I would have doubled/tripled up straight away on occassions, however the negatives outway the benefits IMO.

Of course if it is a cheap tournament I may/will, however I prefer to let a couple of hands go just to get a read of the other players, and to know that if I start pushing, there isnt one of those players who goes All-In with any hand and makes them.

I don't care about doubling up first hand or missing out on big pots, its the first hand...a long way to go even if you get 4 callers and win. Even holding AA, two All-In calls on first hand can quickly turn into 3/4/5, and then you find yourself out.

By the way, what does the term "Donk" refer to? i.e. 'Donkement" ect.

My response.

People who fold aces pre-flop...

You're kidding aren't you?


In another thread the same bloke is holding quads on the flop and worries about someone else hitting quads so shoves before the turn :eek:

Not up on graph data.

What are Sklansky Bucks - is that what the expected win should be on how the hand was played out?

Yeah pretty much.

If you lose a hand but your opponent made mistakes, such as drawing to a flush without proper pot odds, you may lose the pot but you have earned Sklansky bucks by causing your opponent to make a mistake.

On the flip side. If you are drawing without odds but you get lucky and draw out on your opponent, you win the pot, but you lose Sklansky bucks.

It's a probability curve. If you keep winning or doing well in 50/50 contests you move to the right, if you keep losing or doing poorly in 50/50 or 90/10 contests you move to the left, that bloke is about as far to the left as you can go.

This is an interesting question...

iirc although you are obv the most likely winner all-in pre-flop with AA you are less than 50% against 3+ callers. Especially on the first hand in a tournament where you figure to be of above average ability is a call the correct decision against 3+ players?

I would be calling very reluctantly I think

Donk is the Trevor Aylott of the poker world, you have AA, you raise pre-flop, flop comes A 67, he has like 52, you smash flop, turn comes 9, you smash turn again, he calls, river comes 8, he wins, he donks you.

Donkaments are turbo tournaments where blind levels are 2 mins or less, where you have to shove in on 57 84 anything as the blind levels increase, this can also take place on final tables of big tournaments where blind levels are so big, there is no room for skill and luck rules.

Think I have had my worst beat ever.

Volative 50/1 PLO. Have KKxx double suited, raise to pot $4.50, reraise behind me to $20, 3 x callers, call for value. Flop comes K 7 4 (two clubs), get raise $84 reraise $175, he calls all in shows 77, river 7 for one outer. Ask why he called 3 x $20 raise with 77 rest junk he says "wrong?"

Then gets the rest when I have AA, he has 247J all different suits and rivers straight. I'm down to 0, he's up to $500. Unbelievable.

I realise what a donk is....

seriously is anyone folding AA here or in the previous example?

I know im not

28-06-2008, 03:31 AM
I've heard of people doing it on the bubble but they must be broke with no intentions of winning the tournament.

The only time I'd do it is if I was cruising in a satellite with no danger of missing out on qualifying. Bit of experience there as I got burned in a similar situation with KK when I hit a K on the flop, lost a huge pot when my opponent hit a straight on the river, ended up out a few hands later. If I'd mucked every hand I would have easily qualified.

More gold from the same bloke as mentioned before, I was thinking he was on the wind up but he seems genuine... He's getting a lot of action if he's on the wind up :D

I have another strategy that I will more often than not fold any hand after winning a big pot, again, I can go into the positives and negatives.

Waiting for his reasoning. :clown:

I don't want to gamble.

I only ask because once I'm in the hand, even though it's against an absolute donk, it should be lay down shouldn't it?

Turns out it had two and three of Spades.

I couldn't understand him calling the $1.50 and even the $4.50 really.

He's calling the flop because droolers don't fold, he's never ever folding the turn with his draw. Looking at the hand, what does a poor player do when they hit and realise they aren't going to get much paid for it?

These guys will usually call, call, call, call, muck. When they show massive strength and you have a marginal hand it's time to fold.
