Re: 2020 HI content

Idk why, but this reminds of when I used to trade baseball cards w the neighborhood kids. I used to look forward to seeing the monthly issue of Beckett's. I had memorized a lot of the prices for Topps, Fleer, Upper Deck stuff and my father knew a lot about this market. Enough to drive me back to some kid's house and make me give back a $5 card that I'd traded for 2 cards, each worth about a quarter.

The coolest piece of memorabilia we had was a ball autographed by Cy Young, when he threw out the first pitch at the Little League World Series in the mid-50's. This was before ESPN covered the Series and before you could bet on whether the next pitch would be a ball or strike. A photo of him in the paper, stealing home on a passed ball for the winning run in a prelim game, was a big deal, according to his friends. It was probably a better look than when he got the heave-ho for kicking up dirt from the infield on to the umpire, after getting caught stealing 2nd base in another prelim game lol

I'd do almost anything to get that ball back. The $150 he got for it - before that market collapsed - doesn't really scratch the surface of it's value

Back in the day, I was a walking encyclopedia of baseball stats. But at this point, I doubt I could name a player from every team, despite the fact that baseball is the easiest sport to handicap (I think?)

Though this reminder has me considering the proper odds on which World Series will be completed first in 2020 - the Series featuring the most disciplined and well-conditioned athletes in the world; or the MLB World Series

Derailing thread hard but hope everyone stay safe if they started playing live again

Including professional athletes (ex: MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL, UFC, etc).

This applies to most 20/40 games I've played last 2-3 years. However, I have leak to value bet light when checked to

How often do we feel the need as "advanced players" to put in extra action where it isn't warranted? Sometimes our opponents ask us to bluff them out of pots, to b/f, or make some other play. OTOH, most of the time, isn't betting when you have it and checking when you don't the best play?

I've been playing a lot of .5/1 online poker, and the good players there have a lot of FPS in them. Think about a 5/10 or 10/20 live game that is slightly TAG if you don't play online. The things that make me shake my head from the decent-ish guys in no particular order:

1) They bet/raise ties, 100%. Ax on a KK442 board is giving extra action. They'll pay off a re-raise.
2) They'll semi-bluff (value raise?) showdown hands. Guy is in a 4 way pot as the PFR with JJ. He leads the flop and loses one. BB donks and EP folds on the turn on a T72K board, he's raising it most of the time. Maybe there is a better example, but I constantly think "why didn't he just call down?"
3) They love to raise impossible river bluffs. I open QQ and get HU with the BB. He'll call down on a K942K board and he'll c/r the river. I'd call A-high here too, and win more than my fair share with both. Oddly, if he had the king he'd...
4) They love to donk. I know that live players (likely due to more MW pots) do this a lot. However, if you take my hand from 3 and donk the K and c/r your bluffs, even an idiot hand reader can play pretty well against you.

Just makes me think, ABC poker is the new tricky play. Add in a touch of LAG and you'll have them shaking their heads.
