Re: Live stud hi - 20/40 sixth street spot

You guys saw that seat 8 had a paired Q door right? Raising might get the other guy with three Eights to fold, flatting gets him to call without risking Queens Full making it three bets.

Re: Live stud hi - 20/40 sixth street spot

Just to make this hand all the more odd, seat 8 was short stacked. After he bet out, he had $57.00 left. I know - what in hell is a solid player doing playing short stacked? You tell me I guess.

Anything else we should know about? This makes a big difference. He doesn't need a huge hand to toss in his go-home chips. electrical's got this one right either way.

I think going for an overcall with a heavily disguised full house is playing way, way too scared.

It's not even likely seat 8 has trip Qs.

Re: Live stud hi - 20/40 sixth street spot

So this is a hand that I thought I butchered which is why I posted it. I ended up raising. Seat 3 tanked forever, before finally folding. Seat 8 three-bet me with his last $17.00. I lost to queens full of kings.

Then the three of us talked about the hand, and I told seat 8 that his check on sixth totally fooled me, or that his play made no sense. I figured that if he was full on sixth or had trip queens, then there was no way he checks and risks losing a bet. He played like he was afraid of trip 8's. So with my hand being so disguised, I thought there was a good possibility that my nines full were good.

Then he told me he misread his hand and was full on sixth. Go figure. His misread cost me another $57.00.

Re: Live stud hi - 20/40 sixth street spot

6th street should not have fooled you. The check when the Q hits says, "OH BTW, I WAS JUST TROLLING W TRASH UNDERNEATH. not!" I love it when they use deception in all the wrong ways and wind-up revealing their hand. This is like really bad camouflage, like someone in an orange jumpsuit applying to be a police officer.

30-60 stud runs every Friday and Saturday. It starts in the early afternoon (1-2 pm) and tends to break in the early evening (~8pm).

Re: Live stud hi - 20/40 sixth street spot

Thanks for that but we go mid-week at The Orleans since we get 6 room nights for $100. I've read that there's an 8-16 08 game at The Orleans and hopefully that'll be running.

8/16 O8 at the Orleans runs every day, usually multiple tables, and one sometimes goes around the clock.
