Re: 2017 ustakes NC, where the steaks are wafer thin (Low Content Thread)

Funny hand (and proof that live tells don't matter). 75 o8 I open AA23 and get 4 call. Flop is AJ4ss and somebody asks what I have I say AA23 and spades and some people laugh, 3 calls. Turn 5 giving me straight flush and only 2 calls. River pairs 4 and it gets capped 3 ways. Wasted straight flush becusse AA scoops entire pot anyways.

I used to think it was a leak announcing what my hand was but the last 4-5 times I've done it I've flipped the nuts with nut redraw and got infinite action, they just keep raising me and I'm usually always honest

in online poker over the years, typing "i have it" in the chat box has been a reliably good way to get river-tanking opponents to call me

Have you tried "I'm bluffing" to see what that does?

IDK about the leak/tell part but that's a heck of a hand story.

Doug - you're such a fountain of information, why don't you play more often? But on the other hand, when you do decide to show up at the Ameristar, please give the heads up so I can avoid you!

Lol. I've been called many times just by betting and saying nothing.

Lol. Cali such a forum junky. I guess it's not a bad kind of junky to be though.

Lol. Interesting, but I think that if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it.

I've had trouble getting motivated to play in a live game. It has become so hard to play online, but maybe I need to go grind up some $ on Ingition or wherever just to feel like I'm not dropping by the bank to drag out $5k to go play poker. It also feels like a big commitment in my current schedule to sneak out to play for a day. I can put on biking gear and be doing something I love with trails 5 minutes from the house. An hour and a half in the car to hit the casino to get on a waiting list? It hasn't passed the shave test.

Who knows, maybe Bellatrix will hit town in the near future and I'll go up and play with her. Always amazing to see the mansplaining poker with someone who clearly can't play telling her "you probably shouldn't have played that hand". It is the added level of motivation required.

Also, here's the link to Quantph's blog.

Most of the forums suck, in case anyone is wondering.

I still remember a hand at Bellagio 20/40 during 2015 WSOP where someone bet/3/5, bet turn and bet river on something like a T54-3-2 runout and scooped with KT, and given time / location details, suspect that it may have been Doug.

The flush draw probably missed. They go 5 on the flop, they never have it.

Well this was a new one that wouldn't've happened 20 years ago...UTG raises, +1 is on his phone, looks at his hand, puts his phone on top of his hand and 3!

BB goes all in for 4! UTG calls and +1 goes for the peek but one card is obv stuck to the face of his phone when he picks it up and goes down on the floor. 3 bets stay in the pot, hand is dead GG

It may have been rainbow . Girl who was the victim of that destruction was pretty aggrospew; type that would think T8 was the nuts and 4 bet the flop.
