If you're playing on a site that allows HUDs, just add the "rake \$" stat to your HEM reports and then divide it by the number of hands, multiply by 100 then divide by the size of the bb to work out rake bb/100.

If you're on Unibet, just ask in the community forum for your results spreadsheet. It will tell you exactly how much you've won and how much rake you've paid. When I played 4NL and 10NL on Uni, I paid less than 5bb/100 in rake. Stars' rake is a little higher (until 25NL where it's lower than Uni), 888 rake was a fair bit higher at all stakes.

From Wikipedia

Quote:
 The expected value of a call is determined by comparing the pot odds to the odds of drawing a card that wins the pot. When the odds of drawing a card that wins the pot are numerically higher than the pot odds, the call has a positive expectation; on average, you win a portion of the pot that is greater than the cost of the call.Conversely, if the odds of drawing a winning card are numerically lower than the pot odds, the call has a negative expectation, and you can expect to win less money on average than it costs to call the bet.
From PSOnline:

Quote:
 If the pot odds are higher than your odds of winning, you should call (or raise, in exceptional circumstances). If your pot odds are lower than your chances of winning, you should fold.
Do I need pot odds explained to me or wtf is up?

Say i'm in LP and there are multiple limps in front, should i just use a standard opening range like J8s+ A8o and QJo+, i feel like these hands play poorly in MW pots besides maybe J8s and we may not always be ahead of limping ranges (as i see people limp with AJ or AQ, or 99 etc, tbh whenever i see ppl limp i auto tag them as loose passive fish with 100vpip limping **** like J4s UTG but that' not always the case and i feel many ppl including myself over-look how wide certain villain's are limping). If there was 1 limper there would be more merit to raising things like A8o & QJo, because of the fact that we are more likely to be HU (those hands do fine HU relatively) and we will be more likely to be ahead of 1 limpers limping range. And obviously if the pot is unopened it's going to be a trivial open depending on villain's left to act behind you etc. Also forgot to mention about our position, in these examples hero is in LP and i think that's pretty significant as well because playing MW pots OOP is pretty difficult especially with crap like J8s or KJo

Don't forget about speculative hands. A limpfest is the perfect setup to join the party with hands like A3s, 98s or 55.

Those hands are going to be raised, except for 55 cause it does terribly 100bb deep in a MW pot unless u flop a set, actually unless u are playing vs fit-or-fold villain's who will let you realize 100% of your equity then i will start raising almost all my pp's such as at a nitty table.

In lp i might limp stuff like T7s or 58s, limping works well the later position you are and if villain's behind u are loose passive/not exploiting ur limps as well.

That is the kind of tournament that I had in mind. There are micro tournaments on one of the sites where I play that are absolute limpfests, with half of the players having a VPIP over 40. They just want to see a lot of hands and do it cheaply because it's more fun than getting 92o, 74o and 83o and folding three times in a row.

But yes, in most cases speculative hands should be played aggressively.

Button shoves for additional 87x Hero calls POT is 190x Button shows AhQh Hero win 190x So I guess I have two questions 1) +EV? 2) is there a better/proper way to express the hand? Thank you!!

Question #1: How often do you have to be correct to make this call?

Question #2: And even if you say you are not using a HUD (or you have zero stats on this particular villain)......... what range of hands do you put on villain when he

(1) from the button, he raises one limper
and
(2) grossly overbet pushes your (not a good size) min-raise

??

Q1: 87/190 = 45% of the time?

Q2:
(1) any opening range including steals
(2) 88+, AQ+, 87s+
I would expect a wider range does something silly due to my min raise (fishy) move, but maybe not?

Thank you for the response

 07-27-2017, 08:56 AM #14139 djorkaeff newbie   Join Date: May 2011 Posts: 17 Re: ***** Official Dumb Questions Thread **** I have an account on Winamax since May, playing 99.9% Expresso jackpot games. This week i decided to attack the leaderboard and played tons of games. but on the last day of the challenge, my account was frozen and the reason for this is "sharing account". I emailed the Winamax team explaining them that i did not share account with anyone or anything, but i received no answer and soon after i found out that my name was removed from the leaderboard. Also want to state that i have a significant amount of money in my account. Does this happened to anyone else? Please help!!!!

Now,my question is,if I play 4 table on 0.10/0.25 stake,is it still count good BR management (regardless if I am bad player) - what stuck in my mind is,for 1k BR you only can play 1 table only on that level..so if I play 4 tables, shouldn't I have 4k in BR?(since 4 tables mean \$100 in table and you need minimum 40Bi) Sorry,if my English is confusing..

Playing 1k hands in 4 hours as opposed to 16 doesn't change matters

Player 1 raises to \$27, player two re-raises to \$40 not all in. I thought raises had to be a minimum of twice the original raise meaning a min re-raise here would be \$54, right?

How do i play 50bb deep in a cash game? (ppl frequently straddle in live poker so sometimes effect stacks are just 50bb) What is the strat for 50bb deep? Assuming straddler/bb will over-defend preflop.

Played poker years for fun and don't play to win so surely when I lose I should not get kissed when I lose as it is going happen every time if I only play for fun? Basically asking if know you going lose pots and still get kissed at playing why play? And any players that can honestly say when lose is not puss them of at all???...
