Now now, it takes a big man to admit defeat. Don't have to go on beating yourself up like this.

This is what keeps happening to me on this site daily.... :/ Or, like the hand that made me quit for the night last night-- I'm in the bb and button opens sb 3bets huge w/JJ I 4bet AA btn folds sb shoves, I call of course, and sb immediately flops a set and it's gg me. I try to be rational, but seriously sometimes it just feels like superusing or a ****ed rng, either that or I just constantly run horrible. Whichever of the 3 it is the results are the same; I get ****ed constantly.

Tbh that's a pretty tame beat. You shouldn't get tilted about that. What should tilt you is when you 3barrel an overpair and they double floated 22 like an absolute moron and river a set. :')

No, I agree. It was more of a straw that breaks the camels back thing after all the type of beats broken was talking about.

Re: Moving Up Stakes, 2015 and beyond

Muppets like Broken helped kill the zone pool. Now its full of sad nits who keep folding and just playing the nuts. I literally went 4 days without stacking anyone. Many hands don't make sense unless villains can see your hole cards also. Zone pool is utter trash now. Party is over.

Don't say mirage can't bluff!! Not only can he do so, he picks his spots very well!

Terrible bluff, villain was kind enough say he was a whale OTF and OTT with his sizings/plays and he could easily have 2p+ in his range with the minraise ott, actually I would guess that it's way more likely that he has that than a weak sdv/overplay

I guess you don't bluff much, since one of the first things people who bluff a lot learn is to know when not to bluff.

Also if you wanna bluff in that spot it's mandatory that you have Qx/Kx, this is a spot that you will have a lot of bluff candidates (if you're turning 9x into a bluff), so it doesn't hurt to choose the combos with Qx/Kx, you would already be overbluffing to oblivion if you chose all Q9/K9 combos anyway, also if you 3-bet KQ at a high frequency then you could easily end up bluffing 90%+ in that spot if you're bluffing Q9-A9

Re: Moving Up Stakes, 2015 and beyond

I guess you don't have the brain capacity to question how villain can even bet that hand on the river, and snap call that jam. I'll tell you how he can. He could see my cards.
