Nah, what I'll do is sell my house, my dogs and the car, prostitute my wife and myself, and steal purses from old ladies in the park. Maybe I raise enough money to pay you for poker lessons. I dig the first piece of advise was for free, or do I owe you already?

And here I am releasing my anger by arguing with someone I don't know about a poker hand.

I give up man, in fact I apologize for not acknowledging that your punt was funny. Maybe in the future I'll care about this arguments again and find joy in them, right now the high only lasts 5 minutes and I feel dumb after. no sarcasm here

Take care

Re: Folding full houses in the Main Event...

Generally arguing over internetz is not +EV.

First of all, you never know if that guy really had AK hand before. Second of all, if he had - it makes sense for older people to overplay top pairs like that. Third of all, that hand history is completely irrelevant, because pushing AK on K64 rainbow board assuming you are ahead is nowhere close to pushing second nuts or quads on 2898 board.

Like why the hell are you leveling yourself against random old fish dudes? Just fist pump everyone at the table and call for christ sake.

to me, when a reasonable player cold calls a raise like this, it looks super strong anyway- so i prefer to go ahead and raise to try to get value out of old guy's semi-bluffs, 2p, and any other hand he feels momentarily inclined to pursue.

Re: Folding full houses in the Main Event...

Just want to add that I've *never* told a guy afterwards that I was bluffing if he made a tough fold against me. It's really insulting so I always "had it", and I think a good amount of players are the same way so I would completely disregard the fact he told you afterwards he had some nut hand.

Re: Folding full houses in the Main Event...

^ good point.

I think too many good online players who don't play a lot of live events come to the WSOP ME and think they gotta play super tight for the first few days to survive and then open up their game when recreational players start to tighten up before the bubble. This is almost opposite of what you should do... when you start with 300bbs and recreational players who have no experience playing such a deepstacked tournament are splashing around this is your perfect chance to accumulate chips because they are not going to last to Day 5 Day 6. At this point in the tourney there's no way I'm folding a fullhouse here unless the guy's a complete nit who's giving away huge tells. With marginal hands you can let go because it seems early in the main but def. not when you have a boat.

Re: Folding full houses in the Main Event...

think its silly to think he plays JT/67 this way and that he can't snap jam the turn when he boats up(esp after that Kxx hand)

Re: Folding full houses in the Main Event...

Based on action by OP - raise UTG , raise on flop ... This seems likely BB , OMC , just flopped twp pair and got there

OP has clearly rep a big hand , yet the OMC wants to risk his ME

I can understand the reluctance to fold, I'm sure he could show up w A8 or KK , but I'd guess 90% he has 8-9.
