Ah yes, the woman that understands poker. It's good because she can join in, but it's not so good when she's watching you play and realises you're throwing money away.

As you can probably guess, I ...

You were favourite, though a big bet at the flop would probably have pushed me out. With not too much in hand, I don't think it was worth risking your chip lead on that, especially considering you had ...

Probably, I know the feeling. I'm not sure if it's bingo machiens necessarily round here, but even so there are cards games, wheel of fortune games and such-like that make cheesy pop sounds whenever y ...

Not as far as I'm aware, things are still going ahead.

There hasn't been any major news on this recently as far as I can tell, so the plans are probably still being finalised. Then again, maybe con ...

You've got a higher flush, so the way I'd always play it would be that you win the pot.

It's a little harsh on your opponent, but again it's a case where you are rewarded for taking higher cards in ...

His play wasn't great, but I wouldn't call it retarded - after all, depending on the situation A3 can be a reasonable hand to play.

I think your problem was you made it too cheap for him to stay in ...

Looks like somebody isn't a fan of the bingo machines - the Governor is hoping to pass a bill to remove machines from dog tracks and the like. There is no plan to ban Bingo, though it would have to be ...

They are the kind of people that want to test the water, and should be bet out of the hand immediately Wink

Not that I know of, though I agree with the increased pressure on table games. I like the edge of playing against people you can see, people you can watch.

It does get a lot more tense though, you ...

PostForum: Alabama Texas Hold'em   Posted: Sat Feb 18, 2006 9:00 pm   Subject: Raising question
I think it stays the same, though I cannot be certain - I don't play much limit poker at all. In no limit, bets tend to be an order of magnitude of the pot, such as half the pot, the current pot, 1.5x ...

I think that although you had a pocket pair, the raises were too rich for you to consider staying in. Without more insight, I'd of put them on higher pocket pairs or AK, AQ... or similar meaning that ...

It's not uncommon, and the fact he was staying in would have had me worred, especially with K 10 J on the flop - Queen and Ace perhaps?

I wouldn't have gone all in, though I would have raised fair ...

I think that the odds have finally been calculated correctly!

The general rule is, is it cheap to stay in on the chance of hitting a straight? If it's still minimum raises, checks and calls round t ...

Small bets lure others into thinking you have a hand, but not a very good hand and may be likely to come over the top hard at you.

If you're holding a flush, 4 of a kind or whatever, then that can ...

I'm not convinced. I'd still say play conservatively and look at around 3x BB. This is a big enough raise to shake off players with nothing in hand who just want to see cheap cards, without being too ...
