I believe they just legalized online gambling in NJ. So that makes it 2 states out of 50.

I've actually never been to a casino to play poker here in the US, how good are the players there, usually? Obviously not in Vegas, just random casinos.

I guess it would depend where you are, but I don't run into many people that I consider to be great players. Of course, I, myself, am a less than good player and don't take it too seriously or know any better. I play in Niagara Falls (well, haven't in well over a year) and have pretty much always left the tables up money, be it tournament or cash game (that's, like, three tournaments total, but I have always ended up in the last five from groups of 30-80)

I like that I generally win money when I play poker, but I hate literally everything else about it.

On a heater at the moment. Just finished another 4+ hour 4 table session, where Ive been able to make a nice profit. (For the stakes I play). Thats 8 sessions in a row now, spanning over the last two weeks.
Pot limit Omaha is fun when you run good.

I was involved in an interesting hand in AC last weekend.

- I was the small blind with 8-6 off, with 2 limpers in front and BB checking behind.
- Flop comes 9-7-5, two diamonds.
- I check to trap.
- BB makes a pot-size bet, the others fold.
- I'm thinking he must have a 2-pair or maybe even a set and I can build the pot.
- I raise 3x, but he just folds.



Do you guys think a raise there was a mistake? Was he just trying to steal the pot from 3 other players?

No, not a mistake with 2 suited cards on the flop. Gotta make them pay for drawing. I might have lead at the pot from first position, looking for a re-raise. But taking that pot down when you did was not a mistake at all.

That's what I was thinking also.

If another diamond comes or the board pairs, I might be in trouble.

Still I was going against an aggressive player that was trying to bully the table from the very beginning.

I think I could have extracted a big chunk of his stack by slow-playing.

You played it just fine, he probably had a total airball, and was just looking to take a stab at it.
I think check/call would've been a mistake. It sucks hard when the turn goes chk/chk, you don't get any money in the pot, and the board can get ugly really fast with two cards to come.
Furthermore, assuming you each had at least 100BB stacks when the hand started (?), you gotta get a check/raise in there somewhere, to get stacks in by the river, and the right time for that is definitly the flop.
The longer you wait with the check/raise, the stronger your line will look, and the easier it will be for him to fold his hand. With a check/raise on the flop you are giving him the opportunity to peal a card with his medium holdings (TP, MP, gutshots/pair+gutshots), float the flop with air, and he aint folding any sort flushdraw.
On thing you could have done differently, is making a smaller check/raise on the flop, ie clicking it back. It looks kind of goofy, and might get a confused call out of your opponent, thereby given you the betting initiative on future streets, and the ability to control how fast the pot will grow. Not something I would do very often, but against an aggressive player, who kind of like to be the boss of the table, it can work wonders.

Like Borat mentioned, leading the flop is also a viable option. Often Peoples limping range involves hands that connects with that type of board, and with 3 other players in the pot, you definitly want to make them pay to see the turn.

As the hand played out, you probably weren't getting more money into the pot regardless, so don't beat yourself up about it.

What are your favorite poker books, websites or other sources?

I've read Harrington's and Sklansky's books. Both of which helped my game a lot. Both tell a great story for a conservative player, which is my style.

I just bought Gus Hansen's book, which I heard is a good source for aggressive play. Situations that dictate for aggressive play is still something that isn't my strength and I'd like to improve it.

Gus' book about how he won the Aussie Millions was fantastic. The analysis was great and he's not nearly as aggressive as i thought. He talks about situations he used his reputation as aggressive. I loved it.

I was in a hand in a home game I either played completely wrong or right.

It's only two of us the BB (me) and the SB. No raising preflop. I have Ac2c, flop is Qd-Qc-4s. We both check. Turn is Kc. Again we both check. River is 6c and he checks and I put out a pot sized bet. This guy is a lose cannon, usually will play any two cards so at best I have him on 3 queens. He puts in a hefty raise. I almost folded but I reluctantly called and said "show me the full house" he flips over KQ. He never slow plays and almost always bets when he has it. If I bet on the flop and get raised I could have laid it down and saved a **** ton of money. But if he calls I likely end up losing more because I made the nut flush.

I don't think he would have raised you on a flop. That would be a terrible play.

Maybe if you semi-bluffed the turn and got raised, that would have saved you.

After that I was short stacked and lost on this hand. I'm in middle position with 99 and raise 3xBB get one call in late position. Flop is 4-6-7, she makes a small bet , I go all in (this left the other person with 2 BB left mind you) and get instacalled with KQ and the turn is a Q. Plays like that frustrate me so much I can't even say good hand because it's not.
