I've played probably 500hrs at the V in the past year and many times can recognize 5 or 6faces at a 2/5 game whereas at 1/3 it's usually 1-3.
Agreed on the beatable..... there are more regs and pros.... but in the end, I feel that sometimes even those guys are beatable.... initially I was surprised by that..then I realized...oh..that's right... b/c the even better pros are at 5-10 or whatever higher limits.

It does take a little more discipline at the 2-5 b/c mistakes are now more costlier....

Cheers,

My image at the table is pretty laggy I'm seeing lots of flops and winning a good amount of them either thru bluffs or showing down the best hand. Buttons image is a lady who likes to play and bet aggressive on the flop but gets lost on turn and river play in regards to hand value and bet sizing.

Me. 400-415
She covers

So mp raises to 10 I call she reraises from button to 30 (2nd hand in a row she has 3 bet) the original raiser folds I call.. Oh yea duh I have 7c8c would help knowing that huh. Flop is Kh 7h 2c.
I checked she bets 55 I call. I know what your thinking omgz I called that big bet on the flopz With only pair of 7s, Yes I did because I suck. I had been winning every pot I wanted to win and had a little bit of God syndrome going and felt I could bluff hearts or bluff river if she checked turn, and plus I got bd. Clubs and if I spike a 7 or an 8 on turn if and she bets ill be able to cr get it in.. I suck I know.

So turn is the awesome 3c giving me a flush draw.. I check and then the best thing in the world happened she only bet 75 giving me awesome odds of a little over 3.5-1 on my 14 out draw. Plus I can maybe bluff 6 hearts as well. Discounting 7h8h because they are were counted as part of my outs and I'm also taking out the Ah because I'm not going to try and take her off top 2. And yes she totally has ak Here like 99% of the time imo. So I call.

River is proly best card in the deck ever almost joker status good.. 7s. Woot I run good.. I load up 180 she hems and Haws and goes guess u got there and calls. I show her the super nuts she shows ak and says nice suckout.. I say thank you.. Then I called jew so dad could scold me for calling the flop bet.

The end
hows that?

I don't absolutely hate the flop call on a very rare basis, but you better be damn sure you can push her off top pair.

that was my point. the 'plan' was to bluff her off top pair? OK, how likely is she to fold AK? as we can see here, very unlikely.

I was only going to to try and bluff if hearts came. I was peeling to see a turn to try and either get there or pick up my back door draw or if a heart came barrel. As I said before I had seen her play hands to the river and she tended to under bet the turn so I knew I had good chances of getting good odds to draw. If the turn is the 9 of diamonds in check folding.

Besides I said already that I hate my flop call so I'm already aware of it.

All week we have been hearing about how epic the 2p2 meet-up was going to be and you bailed on it early? It is Vegas. Man up.

Lol at punctuation...

OMG, I'm pretty! Sure, I almost murdered myself with how much I drank after you left.

imakeposts thinks he's pretty!!

I got a chuckle out of this.

I know, I know - you meant to say:

"OMG, I'm pretty sure I almost murdered myself with how much I drank after you left."
