I know I am new here, but I also totally agree. I happened upon here by searching CT and was delighted to see the other thread. When I saw this thread and the interesting post by GolfPro, I signed up. I am an avid CT patron and find these posts very interesting.

Re: Charles Town, WV

It sounds like the posts need to stay based on the last few comments and Lattimer's and my discussion. The downside of leaving them is they're pretty standard fare re bad beat / brag stories that can be found in the BBV forum and they might discourage other posters from participating in this thread to build a true community of regulars if the thread becomes dominated by them. They don't really lend themselves to discussion.

The pro is that if those posts bring traffic to an otherwise low-traffic thread, it could result in a critical mass of players participating and the thread taking off.

If in the future they choke out other discussion to the point that you guys think they need their own place, we'll reevaluate. Thanks for your feedback!

Exactly, you like reading these posts and I like recaping them after my trip because sometime I feel by reading other's inputs or responses will help me improve my hand in the next round. Doing a recap it is telling a story, however, the feedbacks from your fellow poker players could help you improve your games and eventually profits.

If you can't post your recaps in the CT regs thread then what's the purpose of creating this thread?

B&M is not a forum for strategy. The link above is where you should post if you want to "improve your games and eventually profits."

I am confuse as to what I can post here since my recaps being kicked off from the main page. Can you please give some clarity is it okay to post the recaps here or not? I think this thread was created so we "CT regs" can have a chat here about the CT trip and not clogged up the main page.

If you look back a couple weeks in the main page, my recaps did generate a lot of discussions or "traffic" according to your term. More traffic means good right? The above link that you've provided did not really interest me because most people (at least myself) would prefer having discussions with the "CT Regs" than those in other poker rooms. Although it is a forum strategy link, however, having a discussion with "CT Regs" makes me feel more comfortable since we go play in the same poker room and perhaps having a chance to meet up.

The bottom line is if I or other can't even post a recap in this so call "sidebar" here then there would be no interest for me to come here and chat.

Definitely read this before posting: http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/20...-22-a-1087524/.

More traffic is good as long as there's decent content in the posts.

That's all well and good that you feel more comfortable discussing strategy with people who go to the same casino as you do, but poker strategy in general is the same regardless of where or what you play. You can describe your reads on your opponents in ways that others can understand and have meaningful conversation with them even if they've never heard of your casino. If you're looking for strategy discussion, you really should participate in LLNLHE.

You can post just about anything in this thread (including recaps) as long as it doesn't violate the guidelines I posted the link to above.

Re: Charles Town, WV

So if the dust has settled around this thread...

Not a CT reg, but have been going recently and will continue until Maryland Live opens up (sorry! I live in DC so it'll be about half the distance).

Had a super rough session last time I went, though I'm fairly sure I jinxed myself right off the bat. Second hand at a newly formed table, lots of limping, I call in LP with A3 off. Flop comes AA7 unsuited, seat 2 bets about half the pot, everyone folds to me, I call, figuring unless a 3 comes, this guy has me in bad shape. Turn is a card > 7, same action, pot is up to about 60. River is another card > 7, no straight or flush threats, and seat 2 checks. I check behind fairly confident I'm beat and he shows A5. I didn't realize it was a chop AND I MUCKED! I realized during the next hand, and I couldn't believe it! Super noob mistake. The whole time, I was ready for him to turn over a bigger ace than mine, which in my brain meant I lost, but I didn't bother to check his kicker vs the board at the end... ughh.

Suffice it to say, things only got worse. Had Aces cracked early on, UTG I raise to 8, got 3 or 4 callers. Flop is uncoordinated except for two clubs, so I bet a healthy amount, 20 I think, and get two callers. I put at least one of them on a flush draw. Next card is 3s, as blank as it gets, so I put in a really healthy raise, 60 I think, and only one caller, he's in first position. The last card is Jd, and first position goes all in for 100, leaving me with ~60 behind if I make the call. I call and he shows J3 of clubs for 2 pair.

Not sure how I could have won that pot besides going all in PF or maybe on the turn, since he was clearly ready to gamble. Advice is welcome though!

Lost with kings to a flush, that one's not even worth discussing since it was a few hands later and I was steamy, so I just pushed and pushed without thinking.

Ironically, the only hand that redeemed my session was a super suck out, I raise PF with A9c, get a few callers. Flop comes Q94 with one club. It was late and I was down to the last ~50 of my effective bankroll for the evening, so I shove, and get called in two spots (second caller was J3 man from the earlier hand). The guy to my left had QQ for top set, no clue what J3 man had. Luckily, I got running clubs for the nut flush. Dude to my left was so blown, he left for 15 minutes, then came back, and 10 minutes later told me how that flush had killed him. I conceded to sucking out but let him know that I was in for 300 and only had about 140 in front so I felt his pain.

Other than losing, the session was a lot of fun, I've found that most people are very friendly, if a bit quiet, at the table. Going back on Thursday and hoping for a little redemption. I'll plan on folding aces and kinds pf this time, lifetime I'm about -170 with them, HA. They say beginners tend to overplay Aces and Kings, I'm pretty much the poster child for that at the moment.

One love.

Went up two weekends ago for a late night session. Was playing 1/2 when my riding buddy came over to the table for a minute. I decided to take a smoke break with him and got up from the table an headed to the bathroom first. On my way out I realized I left my jacket and cigarettes at my seat. Walked back and the dealer saw me so he delt me in. I looked down at two red Aces and got a 3 bet then a 4 bet all in behind my EP raise. The 3 better folded to my all in and my aces held up... EZ game.

Anyways I think I'm heading up Sunday. Maybe I'll run into some of you.

LMAO. Dude you were aces full of sevens. The only hand that beats you is if he had the case 7...very unlikely since he was the aggressor post-flop on a board of 2 aces. What were YOU thinking!! (NOTE: I just saw the ">" nevermind....please disregard what I just said).

And for the record. With AA your post-flop bet of $20 is only 50-70% of the pot($32). Your next bet of $60 is only 67% of the pot ($92). Both weak bets in relative terms. You should have bet at least $40 post-flop and shoved it all on the turn.

Exactly, 40 is a bit small holding AA with $ 32 in the pot. I'll make it 55 to show strength after the flop and jam it all in as u said on the turn. If I got re-raised after the flop bet then I get it all in. Sometime these guys they hold 1 top pair such as Q or K after the flop and re-raised u so u gotta make them pay holding AA.

last Sat, I held AK and bet 100 after the flop heads up and only 60 in the pot, I was re-raised to 225 by A9 and we both paired A so I made it to $500 and he called, turn and river were blanks and I took down the big pot with the K kicker. It's amazing how many donks called a 30 preflop raise with low kicker and went broke.

Yeah for the record those numbers are approximate, this was about a week and a half ago and my hand recollection is bad to begin with. But point taken, relatively strong hands require a serious show of strength in order to chase out drawing hands. I'll be back Thursday

Played Last Night Table 11 seat 6. Great table, with a nice bunch of players.
To the guy in the 7 seat late, I called, because I was betting the whole way, and I had you on the flush draw the whole time, and it was 130 more to call, and I figured you were Bluffing when the Flush didn't hit.

Re: Charles Town, WV

2/5 there is a difference between 1/2 and 2/5 bets. What you are indicating is in tune to the 2/5 game - betting $55 into a $32 Pot.

I think as Hunt said a bet close to or little more than Pot Size is usually good. Ofcouse we all know how CT plays, sometimes the size of the bets are not relevant to the player calling them (since J3 guy knew the Jack was coming on the river there is no discouraging him).

It is nice to see session recaps, makes this thread more interesting. I am looking forward to my next session - mostly coming Tuesday.

Bortron5000, go get' em tiger!

Jammit, are you going to post the hand details or do we need to ask the imaginary Seat 7.
