This implies that deeper level thinking goes on at 2+2. You're giving us too much credit.

Nope. Believe it or not I fold seven high hands that can only make 2 distinct straights when playing heads-up. Shocking I know.

You are probably one of the guys who type "LOL 95o!!!!!" in the chat when I win a pot.

Hyperrrank, if you are folding 74 in the bb in hu, you are getting run over.

Guys, I think hyperprrrank was joking. I'm sure he doesn't think defending the BB with ATC in a HU limit game is "spewtastic."

who cares, I'm sure he doesn't play enough HULHE for it to really matter. And overdefending your BB can indeed be a mistake if you don't play very well postflop, which describes more than a few people who post on 2p2.

Re: March Low-Content Thread

I'll come clean, I indeed thought i was serious, if a little hyperbolic. I play a ton of 3 and 4 handed and very little actual HU.

I ended up playing HU tonight for the first time in months and actually almost laughed out loud when I called with 74o from my big blind, not once, but twice.

LDO... your kicker isn't as big of a problem in the 2nd example.

Re: March Low-Content Thread

First time post @ MSLHE. Probably a std spot.


20/40 @ local casino.

CO seems like a tightish decent player.

SB is lol-bad.

Hero has only shown tightness so far but is young and probably has an
implied aggressive image.

9-handed. Hero is BB with Js9d

Pre (1.5 SB):
5 folds, CO raises, BTN folds, SB calls, Hero calls

Flop (6 SB): Ts 8s 3d
SB checks, Hero checks, CO bets, SB folds, Hero raises, CO 3-bets, Hero calls

Turn (6 BB): 8c
Hero checks, CO checks

River (6 BB): 4h

Hero ?


Should I bluff with my J-high never, always or sometimes? How about on other river cards, like a spade or a K?

Re: March Low-Content Thread

A lot of people 3-bet with overs these days. Not sure why, but it's in vogue at live mid-limit games. They hate getting c/r on the flop when their AK/AQ missed, so they 3-bet for a cheap showdown. Free turn card, snap-call river. So yeah, you're getting called by A-high all the time. Hold off on this one.

do you cap barrel then here on the flop? or is his 3b still overly weighted towards TP+ hands, even with this new vogue?
