Like I said in the post, I'm not sure if these implied odds offer enough to call, but taking a better look at it they just might. Maybe.

Still looks like a clear fold to me.
I'm pretty sure villain already has us beat here.
Hitting the straight may just be a split pot.
So we need to hit our flush here. How much more money can we get into the pot when that 3rd hits the board?

Edit: we are probably winning some money when the straight hits, since it's not as obvious as the flush, but is it enough? I think not, but I could definetely be wrong!
it's not a call, it's a raise.

Dude. You ve got a flush draw, a straight and middle pair.

Against a tight range of 88-77,AJs,T9s,87s,AJo, you ve got 47% equity.


Even if he never folds if you go all in, because of the money in the pot, it's still an EV+ play.


Now give him hands like A high flush draws along with other Jx type of hands and see where your equity is.

Might as well just name the exceptions if there's so few of them.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

I enjoyed the thread where the guy was calling SABR a fish for having a call vs 3 bet% of more than zero when OOP (apparently you have to raise or fold against a 3 bet or else you are a fish). I think that killed all remaining faith SABR had in the LLSNL forum.

Any baseball fans in here? I know I can count on SABR, anybody else?

It's time for the (free to enter) 4th Annual 2p2 MLB PEEHS Contest!

Take 5 minutes to fill out an entry before Opening Day next Thursday, and sweat the reveals all season long!

Any of you MM fans want to share your bracket with me? Family tradition with nothing on the line but bragging rights. Problem is...this year I have been busy planning a move out of state and haven't a clue about pushing anybody but Duke, Gonz and VA to the top. PM.

My theory is that it is somehow a contraction of "all that I'm saying," but I'm not sure.
Honestly, it's just a (lame) joke, along the lines of "pear" / "giraffe" / etc. and pushing my country-bumpkin-from-a-small-town hick persona (which is ~half true).

I don't think (???) I actually hear this term around here (noting that I am now very far removed from my roots and it's a totally different mixing pot down here anyways), although I might have to pay more attention. I've always associated it with hillbilly / hick / lowerclass / etc. way of talking.

I'm another outsider who - for some unknown reason - enjoys reading this thread, learning a thing or two, judging all y'all in my head. You're an interesting microcosm of people who have an IQ higher than the average.

Today I'll give back a little.
