Folding AA HU on the river after checking the turn when villain only check-called the flop is a hero fold in my book.

You have one pair on a four flush, four straight board that absolutely crushes a bb range. It simply can't be a hero fold.

In a 4 bet pot

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

The lesson was not verifying the other hand and just assuming that the dealer can read the board. I mean, I misread my own hand in this particular instance but had I looked at his hand and back at the board, I may have realized that I actually had the best hand. Honestly if it hadn't been for the aces cracked commotion it totally would have gone unnoticed.

What if the lesson secretly was, don't be so concerned about fast rolling your cards that you don't pay attention to the other guys hand?

If you think that 23457 crushes BB's coldcalling 3 range, good for you.

3!, check-call, check-check, donk is a line that where I'm calling with AA a ton. I'd start to worry if the board is QJT9 or something like that. But low cards? Call all day.

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

Was in a rare mood today: Straddled for the first time in 10 years (almost won!) and bought a $1/game, 7-spot, 10-game Keno ticket. I thought I'd kept an eye on all of the games so when the runner came by to check my ticket I said that I didn't think I'd won anything. Then she comes back w/ $322! So I was all happy and stuff but my big mistake was checking to see that if I'd hit one more number it would've paid $8K.

Wow logged in here and saw all the posts and wondered what happened in the poker world to revive interest. Then I realize we combined 8 forums to get this much action.

@dougl gonna be passing through Boulder tomorrow. Kiddo wants to ride Valmont. You around tomorrow afternoon?

Should be around. Would be happy to meet up. Might be able to drag our kiddo, though she's still a little nervous about single track after her concussion last year. I checked the FB page, and it looks like the trails are open. I couldn't find a race schedule, but there were no announcements about XC events. This time of year, all the roadies are transitioning to fatter tires.

You still on Skype?

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

Hi otts welcome back.

I bet 3 bet the turn bvb vs a maniac heads up out of position with 8x on 9832r or something like that the other day. Then I bet the river successfully; not much has changed since otts disappeared.

Watching American dad? Meh = regression to the mean after watching nothing all morning, which is better for the mind imo.

I wasn't here when the decision was made, but I do think "Triple-Thread Merging" would have been a better title.

It was mentioned, and I voted in favor of it.

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

What's the best reply to this kind of question?

EP limper is a terrible player and whines constantly. BB is an unknown. Folded to me SB and I complete w/ J-8o. Flopped a double-gutter, called EP's bet, BB folded, I make the hand otr and bet.

Guy starts to whine, 'you called for a gunshot?' I want him to call and the best that I could come up with was 'Not really.' And then he called.

I usually don't answer those question, fwiw.

J-8o is a lot better than Q-5o, iyam.
