In general the passive station is going to be less responsive to sizing. The exploitative play is to go for heaps when you go for value, but also to dump it if you run into any serious opposition without the goods already in your hands.

Re: Suitedjustice's Ongoing Mid-life Crisis

Here's one where I did reduce the relative sizing on the turn to target an Old Man Coffee's calling range, and I got shoved on again.

EP opens for $7, a nitty OMC calls in MP. I call on BTN 65 and $235 to start with. Both villains cover me.

(Pot $24) - Three Players

Flop: AJ8

EP checks, OMC bets $17, I raise to $50, EP Folds, OMC calls.

(Pot $124) - Two Players

Turn: J

OMC checks, I bet $60, OMC completes the check/shove for $178 total. He just about beat me into the pot with the shove.

(Pot $362) - Two Players, one is all in.

My baby flush needs only 25% equity. Am I ever good here? Who cares; pot odds! I call.

And you would be right, I think. Here are the only hands from an OMC that would both call the raise on the flop then check/shove the turn. Now, I'm being very optimistic in the first chart with including three combos of AxK and three combos of AxQ. He could just as easily lead or check/call with those.



Look what happens when we take just those few AxQ combos out.

Hai Colin! For you, I'll post cliffs:

I'm on a downswing, playing my B game in spots, and not playing enough.

And I posted a long rant about an old-timey song, in part to keep the thread from being shunted over to PG&C for having too high of a poker content ratio.

That should catch you up

Re: Suitedjustice's Ongoing Mid-life Crisis

Speaking of highbrow subjects: farting at the urinal.

I can't remember where I brought up the question of etiquette around audibly letting go outside of the clear green zone of the toilet stalls, yet still inside the public restroom proper, for instance at the urinal--it was either here or in the BBV LC/NC thread--but the moderate consensus was that urinal farting was fine, or at least a funny enough breach to get away with. 2p2er Natamus--if I recall--suggested farting as loud as possible and then owning it by giggling loudly.

Yesterday while taking a leak at Bally's I let a little squeaker go by, then tamping down my embarrassment, I let loose a long tremendous thundering sequel, along with a moderately high-pitched giggle, just as suggested.

The dude at the urinal row behind me completely lost it. I can't remember the last time I got such a big laugh from anyone for anything. He gave me a fist bump and told me that I was awesome. Later on, when I was back at the table, he walked by with his girlfriend and pointed me out. Farts really are a universal form of humor. Tiny babies will laugh at them.

I hope the fist bump was with the "other" hand!

Re: Suitedjustice's Ongoing Mid-life Crisis

It was post-wash, not to mention that he'd need to have a pretty strange method of handling his business for a knuckles-on fist bump to be concerning.

There's definitely at least sack touching with the outside of the hand.

It was only a matter of time before this thread became about penis touching.

We're trying to have a nice discussion about farting.

Re: Suitedjustice's Ongoing Mid-life Crisis

If you canít fart freely in the bathroom while peeing where can you fart? Donít wait until the end and crop dust the line or urinals or the doorway, but everyone should feel free when they are peeing.

I should have said outside of the fingers (is "outside of the fingers" a thing. I'm sure you know what I mean).

Re: Suitedjustice's Ongoing Mid-life Crisis

Understood that when you make a fist your definition of the outside of your fingers is the exposed area of the fist, but I will still hold that knuckle to scrotum contact is minimal in most cases, though your mileage may vary.

Re: Suitedjustice's Ongoing Mid-life Crisis

I think you need to weigh up a few things before you make your decision

1) Is he old? The older you get, the more scrotum you have, which increases the likelihood of touching
2) How drunk was he? The drunker, the more likely that there is more fondling as he tries to pull it out.
3) How tight were his pants? The tighter, the more likelihood of additional touching.

But who really cares, as long as you are touching poker chips, you're definitely only have two degree of separation from chip to penis.

Re: Suitedjustice's Ongoing Mid-life Crisis

All right, well done fid.

Moving on...After a solo morning session at Bally's where I lost a big AKs<QQ preflop flip in a straddle pot, Natamus and I met up in the afternoon and played a $1/$3 session at the Wynn/Encore.

The table was solid with few good spots. One guy was sitting behind a giant two-tier $3600 pyramid. Unfortunately, he was a good player, and unlikely to give away much of his $3.6k treasure chest short of a big cooler or two. We found out from other folks that he'd been there for possibly several days without rest. At one point the floor pulled him aside and gave him a lecture during which the word "liability" was put into play.

Natamus and I agreed that--if we were in that guy's spot--we would have asked for a comped room, if the house was so afraid of getting sued for any harm or injury stemming from letting us play for so damn long.

Bally's and Wynn: 3.5 hours:

-133 after a big flip isn't bad. Also, Fid DOES have a good hold on the balls-to-your chips separation...
