A proper relationship and poker really doesnt go well together.  I have a serious GF and because of that Ive probably played less than a quarter of the hands in the last year that I could have played.  I generally can get away with playing live just once or twice a week, 3 times is a miracle and Saturday nights are no-go's so it also impacts on my game selection.  I get to play online for maybe 30 mins at a time/1 hour at a time, long enough for an SNG or short cash session, no time for MTT's or long sessions so I feel like Im not developing as fast the guys that play thousands of hands per week.  Just the fact that time spent with a wife/GF is time you could be playing more hands must impact anyones game.

Cheers for the input guys.

He did have JJ, he's my mate from work and I said at the time I thought it was JJ or TT and he said it was JJ, he later confirmed it was JJ.

Boba, how did you get on at the Dominoes Tourney?

Tell me you didnt play double 6 first!

You mean thats a bad thing???  Oh man, Im still learning though....Im reading up on trap chapping

didnt wanna put all my chips on the line on a 50/50 shot.

Maybe you should find a new game!

How do you know he is going to call and is going to have a PP that is lower than KK?
Flushy thinks I played this hand badly, Im going to find a new game and quit poker altogether.  Thanks for your advice.  Maybe Ill take up dominoes

It was my intention but the player who did it was playing really tight and was the only player at the table who could bust me.  Was thinking that I had been playing well until that point and didnt wanna put all my chips on the line on a 50/50 shot.  Mainly Im looking for a short stack to find a high card and put it all in, not the big stack to raise me.

I probably did play this completely wrong.......which is why I posted here for advice

Just watch out for the people who are good, authoritive writers but crap poker players who give awful advice in some long old waffley but excellently written post that makes it seem better than it really is.

It's simple you either raise and 3 bet, or limp to re-raise. You gave him no decision at any point during the hand.

Do you think its the right move to reraise?

As suited Jock said, Bandit did hit an accumulator on Cheltenham for over a grand.  He can still be seen in Glasgow card rooms playing like a donk then donking his money off in roulette just to make a late night recovery to break even and he;s still the most drunken annoying player to play against in Glasgow(/Scotland???)

He threw his laptop against a wall after being rivered in a huge pot in an online cash game and broke it which is why he hasnt been online, apparently its now int he shop getting fixed and he will be back soon when he gets the laptop back.

Stanley £25 freezeout last thursday

Came across a hand that I had to fold, I read the player correctly but ever since Ive been thinking could I have played it any different to win the hand.

12 players left so its almost the final table bubble.  Blinds are 400/800, I have 18k chips and opponent has 21k.  He has been playing fairly tight and has just won a monster pot to get his big stack whereas I think my table image was kinda loose and aggressive picking up a lot of pots firing at flops that nobody appeared to hit but all of my hands that have went to showdown have been big hands.

The last few rounds of the table I have went quiet as we are at the stage where most of the short stacks are pushing with anything half decent so i dont want to raise and be reraised with a short stack, opponent has came to the table maybe 3 or 4 levels ago so his opinion of me might be that Im not as LAG as the other players at the table think i am.  Oh, and he;s my workmate at its the 1st time Ive ever been on the same table as him.

UTG folds and then I call with AK offsuit, its folded to him on the button and he raises to 3k, its folded to me and I call.

Flop comes rags, 9 high rainbow, I check he bets 5k, I fold.

I put him on a big-middle pair where he has his perfect flop but doesnt wanna see another card. TT or JJ probably with an outside chance he also has AK or AQ and is making the continuation bet on the flop.  During the final table break he told me he had JJ which I honestly felt was his most likely holding.

So the question is, how do I win this hand?

The other ways to play this that I was thinking about are......


 I could open raise it, probs to around 2400 but if he pushes Im not sure I can call for all my chips as he wouldnt do it without a massive hand.  If he re-raises (which I think he may have done) then I have to at least call but then I miss the flop and either have to take a shot at it or check fold as I did.  This brings about the same outcome as before except I have more chips committed.


 I limp, let him raise to 3k then re-raise/push but I think either way he calls.  If I push Ive advertised I have AK so I *think* he calls with JJ.  If I re-raise ive still pretty much advertised what I have, he gets to see the flop (which he would know I missed) and its his for the taking, the only question is how many chips would I waste even taking a stab at the pot?

On the flop:

Do I bet out?  he has an overpair to the board on a non-threatening flop.  I limp/called his raise so its unlikely Im slow playing an overpair, his only danger is against a set.  If I bet out will he raise?  Maybe, I think he would maybe go all in actually and then I cant call and Ive thrown away the chips I bet out with as well as letting everyone at the table know I will fold when someone comes over the top of my bets.

Do I check raise?  After calling the 3k pre flop Im down to around 15k and he has me covered, he bets 5k, if I raise even the minimum I have at least 13k of my 18k in there and am pot committed no matter what drawing to an Ace or a King with 2 cards to come so if I raise I think I have to go all in.  He might think about me having the set but at the end of the line I think he calls.  he might also think that if I had a set I might just call the flop and try to squeeze more out of him on the turn and river.

Do I flat call his 5k on the flop meaning I have 10k of my 18k left and the pot will sit at 17.2k and try to hit my Ace or King knowing its good if I hit but wasting 5k if I miss.  I think if I call and dont hit, the onyl card stopping him from going all in is a Q which might make him check behind me and let me see the last card for free.........but probably not.

Generally any way I can think of playing this differently I will lose more of my stack or maybe all (assuming I dont hit the turn or river), its just frustrating knowing what I have, knowing what he has and not being able to win the hand.  Is there another option out there I dont see?

I never thought I'd see Silva looking desperate for it to finish. Saws him have an armbar break his arm - he kept lifting the opponent with that arm to drop him on his head. He's a seriously hard man - but the better man won tonight, by a long margin.
Thats because he was loaded on roids!

right, so UFC 68 is tonight but we get it tomorrow on Bravo 9pm.

I'm going to stick my neck out with some predictions
Mark Hamill to beat Rex Holman TKO 1st round
Babalu to beat Jason Lambert TKO 2nd round
Rich Franklin to beat Jason Macdonald on the judges cards.
Chris Lytle to beat Matt Hughes KO 1st round (definitely betting against the odds here)
Randy Couture to beat Tim Sylvia 3rd round TKO / Cuts stoppage. either that or an early Submission

any other predictions?
Do you know anything about Lytle?  I thought he was just a jobber thrown in there for Hughes to destroy before his middleweight title rematch.

That was also the first Mir fight I saw and wasnt impressed. is endurance was always questionable and his stand up was decent but he didnt have KO power.  He could be the best ground fighter (note-not wrestler but general fighting ability) Heavyweight in MMA. Mir ripping of Sylvia's arm is 1 of my favourite MMA moments.

Chuck would probably crush him but I think Chuck would take most of the heavyweights anyway

Frank Mir is 1 of my favourite fighters, he was in an awkward position coming back from injury, he needs some lower card fights to get him back on the trackof contesting at the top of the division
2174  Community Forums / Betting Tips and Sport Discussion / Re: General Fighting thread on: February 28, 2007, 11:46:29 AM
I think Crocop would tear through the UFC heavyweight division, his takedown defence is good enough to stop him getting dominated on the mat by anyone othe than Mir and Couture but he has a huge stand up advantage on them.  I think he also possesses a stand up advantage over Sylvia and Arlovski.  Crocop V Arlovski and Sylvia are the ones  want to see most.
