Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

You know you've run good when you hit a couple sick beats in big pots and still end up a lot.

8/16 games are loose and sometimes wild so it doesn't surprise me that you've had more variance there than at 20/40.

2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

Oh yes, definitely. The Palace 8/16 games have 5-6 people to the flop in every hand and pretty much every pot I play outside the blinds is raised and the game was extra juicy yesterday, with multiple players seeming to target and reraise me with wide ranges. These same conditions have led to some nightmare sessions as well.

Iíve also played about 6x as many hours at 8/16 than 20/40 and about 2x more than 15 and 20 combined.

Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

I played O8 at Canterbury Friday night for 6 hours.

The first hour I was vpip of roughly 10% and managed to torch $500.

If I hadn't had a VPIP of roughly 90% for the later 5 hours I would have made more than just my $500 back but I was tilted to the gills.

I hit the weights today for the first time in years. Modest spring numbers but now I feel great.

Bring on summer.

He always buys in huge, overcompensating. He's only up about $800 assuming he didn't buy in for even more.

No hawaiian sucks now because they take two dollars before the flop and pissed off the regs. So does commerce though. Go to the bike

You need your Omaha phrase book, to really play that game well. Here are a few suggestions, though I suspect others have even better.
  • "You know, aces aren't really that good a hand."
  • "How do you even know what you have until the turn?"
  • "Four quads draws preflop, how could I fold?"
  • "Two pair? I was 1 card away from a full house."

A class act; a worthy opponent; a feared adversary. Standing ovations at Fenway Park are earned the hard way.

Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

Yesterday I played a hand and where UTG limps K9o, couple limpers, I limp T9, BB checks his option with AA and the board runs out A995T or something like that. Whoops.

Sick. Questions.

A) You go more than 3 bets on the river?

B) Did the flop pop off for 4 bets or did multiple people lol slowplay?

C) T9s or offsuit? If offsuit I'm sure one is not making a mistake by never overlimping T9o.

Never limping T9o in LP seems really bad.
