OMG yes! Please, 5CD!

Re: Other Poker Regs/BBV thread

Fixed Limit 5 card draw 1/2$ stakes.

Maniac UTG open raise to 2$, Hero is next to him on HJ and 3bet to 3$ with QQ...fold around to BB who is a tight-fish player from Spain (18/12) and he shove all-in for last ~3.8$, maniac calls, hero calls. Everyone discard 3. BB is all-in, so there is a side pot between maniac and the hero. Maniac lead (donkbet)...Hero thinks..."ok BB is tight so he never have worse than KK+, so I never win the main pot...the only thing I can hope is the side pot. I risk 1bb to win 1bb...50-50, but maniac bluff doesn't make sense! Even if he is bluffing against me, then he will gain nothing when I fold cuz BB will take down the main pot! Hero easilly mucks his QQ...
Maniac shows 88 and Hero lol'ed so much cuz he's bluff doesn't make any sense!

BB...muck...maniac take down the pot with 88...
Hero take his mobile phone and threw on the wall...

BB has $3.80 in a 3 bet pot so is probably getting it in with any pair, UTG probably realises his 88 is no good v u but also realises that if u havent made 2 pair or a set u will probably fold as u arent expecting him to donk bluff all that often. Its not a tournament/sng so theres no incentive for him to check it down etc with u to try to eliminate shortstack. Seems standard to me.

Re: Other Poker Regs/BBV thread

Can someone tell me who VladputinR0x is on stars?

I had a 5 month stint where I was playing the 2-7 single draw HU SNGS on stars and I remember seeing him when he first started playing the $15 limits back in sept(i think) of 2011.... I havent been playing for a while but I looked him up on playerscope and he is crushing the games.

He took me for over 17 buy-ins when he was playing the $15 limits and now I see that he plays the $500 limits?! This just seems crazy to me because at the time he really did not seem like a good player.....obv he is though because he's up 60K + in 2-7 SD HU SNG's and i'm a busto fish who only made $400 from smaller limits. hahahha

his style is so different from anyone i have ever played in those games....and I think i've played most of the regs....

Not hating on the guy...just wanna know if he's an established player already.

This was a major talking point in this thread a year or so ago, with vast majority of people involved believing he was a bot or something along those lines as it is not natural for someone to be able to constantly sit reg's and maintain a win rate as high as he does in a game with as much as variance as turbo HUNL 2-7 SNGs. He does crazy stuff like snaps me off with 66 when I have 2 pair and is never wrong and he also limp calls off entire stacks and draws 2 and always seems to get there v my pat 10/J. He played either v a guy I was playing 2/4 with the other day who was an OK player and he said that Vlad had beaten him in 15 out of 17 sngs which would be pretty hard to do v a not so good player given they were all turbos.

I know this will sound like sour grapes to majority of people, but until u play him u won't know the feeling of knowing something fishy is going on.

opinions on the health of 2-7 td at midstakes +? Just a bunch of bumhunters/bots refusing action, or is it a viable choice to switch over to from nlhe/plo?

Re: Other Poker Regs/BBV thread

In terms of a weight of bluffing with respect to position, how much bluffing IP?

like 40% OOP/60% IP?

30%/70% OOP/IP?

I would be interested to know what higher stakes players thought about this.
