And yeah, I agree with Nam. The best part of that hand is that A9 and KQ called. LOL
So I'm playing 1 / 2
I have KQ flop top 2 pair. I'm betting it all the way and this maniac is calling. a 10 comes on the river and this douche bag has AJ for the straight.
I can't believe some of this bullshit. who the fuck calls raises and re-raises with an inside draw.
If it's a big multiway pot, he might actually be correct to call you depending on how many people, preflop raises etc.
Say 3 people are in the pot and he raises preflop. There are 3 dollars in the pot, if you didn't reraise him, there's no reason to put you on AK or AQ, so he figures he has two cards he can catch to win the pot: an ace for the lead, and a 10 for the absolute nuts. Now on the flop if you bet and the other person calls, he's getting 1:5 on his money, which is more than enough to call with two cards to catch. If it's headsup, he's getting 1:4 which is still enough.
Now onto the turn, this is where it's most important. If even ONE other person is in the pot with you two, then he gets over 1:5 odds on his money, which means he only has to win 20% of the time to make this a profitable call. However in reality he only has 1:10 shot of hitting it, but in his mind hitting an ace is probably still good. That makes it close to a 3:10 shot with 1:5 odds, so he would in fact be correct, only you have two pair and not one pair, so bad luck for you and good luck for him.
If there were constant reraising, he should know even hitting an ace isn't good, but depending on his position he could have been making the right call still. For example, he called the flop, and you slowplay til the turn. You bet, he calls, then person behind reraises, you call, and it's up to him. Though he knows he's horribly beat, the action put so much money in the pot that he is probably getting that 1:10 he needs. He also gets huge implied odds, since he is drawing to the absolute nuts. If he DOES hit it, most likely he could check-raise or just straight up raise both of you and gain an additional 4 bets.
Sometimes it's not that simple to just bet when you have the best hand. You might have to win smalller pots, and maximize the number of pots you can win. Like hitting a ragged flop and checking and hoping someone raises so you can reraise right behind him, and make it wrong for your other opponents to call, contrary to most popular belief that you should pump the pot as much as possible whenever you have the slightest edge.
2+2 is exactly like SRK, only a couple years ago.
Basically that forum is at that stage in it's development where the noise-to-information ratio is just about to hit the breaking point. There are a lot of really good posts there and the important posters (Malmuth/Sklansky, etc) still post from time to time. But the new wave of morons and idiots are starting to take over a bit. Also that forum is remarkably rude. If you don't fit with their particular ideology on something, they just go out of their way to be asses.
So yeah, it's basically exactly like SRK. I read the posts there, but it's primarily useful for identifying people. When I know that I have a "brown trout" at my table, I basically try to run them over. Most 2+2ers are weak-tight at the tables, especially if you mention that you're a trout also. They try not to make any mistakes which translates most often into weak-tight play. Probably my favorite hunting trick these days.
And yeah, I agree with LB. The best part of that hand is that A9 and KQ called. LOL
Nice, SRK crybabies whining about bad beats. Grow up, it happens. Crying about bead beats is a sure way to suck at poker for life. Poker is like a lot of things in that just playing will only improve you marginally. Playing and thinking is what makes you better.
What kind of an idiot calls big raises or caps betting with KQ? The kind of idiot you want at your table.
The number 1 mistake bad poker players make is complaining about bad poker players. As if playing really good players would somehow be easier. If you can't beat internet scrubs that call with 2 outers you sure as hell aren't going to beat someone who knows what they are doing. People who think they are good but are just constantly sucked out on are fooling themselves. If you are good and playing low limits you WILL get constantly sucked out on but you should also be winning.
Quick question for anyone that'll answer: What do you guys think of Mike Caro's book on poker tells. I read some of it a while back and it's pretty intersting. I applied some of it at casinos, homegames, and to myself, and wow, he's right on most occasions.
u seem to know a good deal so i wanted to ask u about my plans and get an opinion. I love poker alot and i'm going to be a dealer in a casino for a while in hopefully like under 2 years. Is this a good idea, i figure i can see like so many extra hands and get payed for it. i'm pretty good at hold em l/nl,7 stud, and esp. omaha. i feel confident but i do know that poker is a hard way to make a easy living.
so is being a dealer a good idea or should i go with another job that will be more money for my bank roll but less exp. at cards. oh and also who do ya think is the best player tournament wise and cash game wise? just curious.
You're an idiot.
Also a lot of his weak=strong and strong=weak is 100% right on low limit players. Another winner I remember was, when the board comes out all of 1 suit and the guy checks his hole cards, he wants to see if he's got a high card to draw to. When he doesn't look, he probably has it. That's because you usually remember your suit if you're suited. If he has to look again, he's 90% off suited. Sounds stupid but it's spot on in the games I've played.
What idiot calls with just 2 pair? I'm no pro, but I ussually note that 2 pair is almost always overplayed by inexperienced players. 2 pair is good, but it can be beat... many ways.
Top two is very strong but your bad beat story shows you're not very good.
Explain how you force someone out of a hand in LIMIT poker you fucking moron.
i'm actually willing to bet that tape would beat you in a headsup game
you up for it mr.gambler?
Ya lets bet on things that will never happen.
Why won't it ever happen? I hear there's this new thing called internet poker.......
I've told you, and someone else has said it, sometimes you have to check and hope someone raises bhined you so you can reraise to limit the field. Sneaky and subtle plays along with luck are required to win the pot many times.
You're right that in limit poker it's hard to force someone out of the pot, especially a moron, but you have to try to make it as incorrect as possible for him to do so. In this situation, it's highly likely he should have called even if he KNEW you had KQ just because of the pot odds. You ridiculing him for a call that wasn't even too bad shows you're not a very good player.
I've been playing a ton of PLO lately, but even after reading Berman's section on SS2, I haven't been gettin good results. I know there's no absolutes, but I find myself hitting a ton of two pair and forced with awful decisions. When the board has 2 suits or 2 high connectors, should I be hoping to hit the boat or just fold? I'll give a couple hands later.
Also, what other hands should be raised besides A-A-any pocket pair double suited?
You have to tell me exactly how many people are in the pot, suits, raises preflop and flop, turn raises and reraises before you can say whether he's right or wrong.
Like I've said, he might have thought hitting an Ace would be good, which means he assumed he had 8 outs. That's not a very bad assumption if there was no preflop reraises, as is norm for AK AQ. If theres no crazy action on the flop theres no reason to assume you have two pair, and trying to make a read online is pretty much impossible. Action dictates your hand.
