Playing in that mix house game tonight, sans Ian Johns, and at $10/$20 stakes.

Should be fun!

If it's high-only stud, you should probably see a river card. If it's stud/8, don't bother, because the original bettor is going to 4-bet. Is there a 5-bet cap at CP? If so, that makes it even more of a no-brainer.

Blah. It was high low and a 5 bet cap. Definitely played the least amount of stud. Will fold next time. I was just confused into calling because all my outs were live.

I can tell you this: John MM is a wizard at hitting one/two outers and Bruce is annoying in the same regard.

I live in the central desert so I run to Toppenish as the closest "good" game. When in Seattle (usually to officiate lacrosse ), I'll play Fortune. Sometimes I make it out to Spokane and play the place in Airways Hgts.

Word. I play Fortune at least once a week when I'm not traveling. In fact, I'm there right now playing 4/8 LO8 waiting for my mix game start time.

I love this book cover. 2+2 books just don't exhibit this kind of character imo.

If you guys enjoy poker blogs, I've been making about 6-8 posts a month and I have to say I think it's pretty good content.

Re: 2018 NC/LC THREAD - name TBD

I showed up yesterday and was 5th on the 20 list and 2nd on the 8/16 list. Was surprised
to see the 10/20 mix going with 2 20 regs. Now I have literally never played Stud and had to inquire about the rules of Big O. I at least know the rules of omaha-8 but zero strategy. Spent the whole time asking questions about what qualifies for a low, etc.

Naturally +40 BBs in three hours before I had to leave. Fun times, A+++, would play again,

Depends on the order of your cards and other action in the hand, but I'm going to say it's more likely you sound have folded before 6th street.
High only hands are overvalued by almost everyone in Stud 8, IMO.

Is that really true when it's one bet every street and my high is always good?

Probably fine if it's one bet on every street. That seems unusual though.
You also can't know for sure your high is good.

Meanwhile, I got to cap the turn 5 ways with Ah4h6XX on a T532 board with two hearts, banged home a Kh on the river.

I meant if I hit my draw. Obviously didn't think I was ahead after 5th when all I had was 2 pair no low. I probably should've folded then I guess.

Mother in law (who isn't a fan of mine) is in town for 2nd day. Need a smile. Sage advice. A shipment of leo doc approved beverages. Next 4 days seem like a long row to hoe.

Thoughts on a few hands:

12:42 - don't like your river bet, literally every semi-bluff got there, so not what sure what you are trying to bluff out. You beat the non-pairs, so you're folding worse and getting better to call.

1:22 - just bet the flop for value

3:03 QQ - 3-ways, I think you should bet the flop

3:03 KJ - not sure what you're talking about, this is a solid value bet on villain's part, it's not "misguided" at all. You should be betting any pair on the turn to get value from clubs, straight draws, etc., so you never have KK/JJ or whatever else you claim you could have.
