It's a bit of a PITA though. You have to reserve a court in advance so it's not something you can run out and do on a whim. You also have to play against someone so you can't play whenever you want.

playing racquetball since before it was cool

Re: I moved to vegas to play poker blah blah blah follow me thread

Spent a lot of time with imakeposts while I was in Vegas and I'm glad I did. He's a cool guy and a hell of a poker player. He's also got keen insight into sports betting, specifically college baskets and other sports but obviously we were mostly talking march madness the past several days. Also had a great time doing dinners and just shooting the ****, get drunker than I've been in a long time blacking out on Thursday and everything else. Great trip!

awesome, I land Friday for a week or so, first few rounds are on me, have gotten fair share of entertainment from the two threads...

However, I'm afraid I'm cut from a cloth much more similar to Ben Taylor than to a winning poker player like you and Henry, but we shall see.

To be honest, I wouldn't call myself a winning poker player. I'm certainly nowhere remotely close to the caliber of player imakeposts is. I'm just learning to play seriously. I've mostly stuck to ABC and that has served me fairly well. I just have not had the time over the past couple of years to play very much as I've been in grad school (plus no poker rooms nearby) I've learned so much ever since I found 2+2 but then that's no substitute for experience.

Sorry.... don't mean to be a dick, but isn't 3225 divided by 63 = $51/hr instead of 63?

but either way, that's a ridiculously good bb/hr... keep it up.... and save-up the bank roll. You are definitely ready for 2-5 skillz wise!

Cheers,

You are correct, my bad I misread my session logger.. I've only played 51 hours. Which tells me I need to get my butt on the grind.

So I figured this thread had been lacking some poker hands so here's a couple to get opinions on. Also just because I'm posting these doesn't mean I lost them.

Hand 1.

No reads on villain.. I have him covered by like 50ish
I've been at the table for maybe 20 minutes or so, I've 3 bet twice already.. Once with AA (vs villain, he called I flopped a set he folded QQ to a cbet.) I showed the aa.. Other hand was qq and original raiser folded pre.

So I get AA utg I limp per the raise happy table guy in mp raises to 7 villain and 1 other call I reraise to 35 original raiser folds and villain flats on button. Flop is K68 rainbow.. I lead 46 he shoves after 30secs for 152 more.. Thoughts.

Hand 2.

No reads I've been at table for 15 minutes. I have 230 villain has 135.. Table probably thinks I'm nuts because I 4 bet 66 after a utg made it 7 one caller mp makes it 20 (3rd time in a row he has raised or 3bet) I raise to 80 everyone folds I show for image.. Anyway.. Straddle pot. Ep guy limps. I make it 16 with AQ off, and sb , straddle. Guy and ep limper all call.. Pots about 65 flops AK5 rainbow. Checks to me I bet 42. Sb thinks for about a minute and calls others fold.. Turns a Q putting 2 diamonds on board. Sb insta leads for 50 leaving himself 28 behind.. Thoughts

Will give results later

Hand 1
Pot is at 136 and costing you 152 to call. The fact that he flats the MP raise pre means all I'm really scared of here is 66/88 since I find KK highly unlikely, altho slightly possible with random 1/2 players. That said its hard for me to think of hands your beating that play this way if the guy has any clue at all. AK that flatted pre is all I can think of really. Since you have no reads on him its always possible he's playing something like K6,K8,75,79, KQ, KJ etc. Tough spot without a read but all things considered I'm calling here with AA after your UTG limp, his flat of the MP original preflop raise, and the fact thats its a 1/2 game in Vegas during march madness. People do crazy **** lol.

Hand 2
After your flop bet + his call pot sits @ 149 so are you willing to fold your AQ on a AK5Qdd board for his half pot bet of 78? I can't see how you fold. I put him in for the rest of it.

Hope your enjoying Vegas bud. I left the LD a few weeks ago and moved back to SLO. No more banking! Woohoo. I'll be out in Vegas next weekend if you wanna grab a beer/grind.

Re: I moved to vegas to play poker blah blah blah follow me thread

Snap call the First hand, Cause if he has a set Oh well.

2nd hand, I dont know what kind of hand SB can have that is not a monster cause calling your 42 with 3 or 4 people to act behind and a board of A-K-5 Rainbow, its not
10-J, Kings or Aces he reraises pre. So I am guessing a set of 5's ???
