As long as they can somehow regulate it. As much as I don't want the government involved in things, I did start noticing online poker's Ponzi schemes. Every time when I first deposit I would win a big pot of say like $300-$400. It would get me hooked and want me to play more but then my next 30 buy ins I would lose. I would get mad and soon have to deposit more money and then I would win another $300 or so on my first or second game back. They let you win to get you hooked and then take the money back to give to the "new investors."

So I was about this close to laying down a flush.

Again multiple limpers and I'm in the BB.

2-3 suited spades.

- K-6-5, two spades. I check. 3/4 of pot bet from villain. I call. I figure villain might have K-10, K-9, 6-5. A better spade draw or 7-8 can't be discounted, but would he bet with it into 4 active opponents?
- Turn is 8 of spades. I bet half pot, villain calls. A bit of warning bells, but I still figure I'm good.
- River is a 9 of diamonds. Ok, value time. If he popped a straight or made top 2-pair, pot-size should get me paid. Just a K might fold.
- I pot it. Villains goes all-in. He bought in for $300, I bought in for $200.


This was early in the game, so I don't know much about him. All I saw from him is a lot of limping, so I figured that he isn't a very analytical player.

Would he raise me with a straight on a board with 3 spades?
Does he think that K-9 is good here?

I call. Villain shows K-10.

He has a shocked look on his face that it's not good enough. His comment:

"You are playing with 2-3?'

I was going to mention that I was the BB and just needed to check and also going to mention that raising for value with a top pair there was an idiotic move, but I decided to just not say anything.

You cannot win those arguments anyway, so not saying anything was a great idea.

I would have just said "nice hand" and moved on.

Yeah he's dumb for shoving when not only does a flush beat him but a 7 and from the BB 2 pair is likely also. It seems he never put you on a hand and thought what bet could push you off of it. I remember when I thought top pair was the nuts...

Thank God you kept quiet. There is literally nothing that pisses me of more, than when somebody tries to "educate the fish" at the table.
Congrats on a well played hand.

Won my home game Saturday playing tight and aggressive. Pulled off 2 good bluffs and a big lay down that would have crippled me. These guys continue to slow play EVERY big hand they get which makes me only push with the nuts which also makes me predictable but they don't seem to be picking up on it.

Edit: you guys were right about betting for information. Putting out more feeler bets helped me get a lot more information.

What do you guys think about this hand from the Big One-Drop?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DVw7DhvL9U

- First of all, what a massive cooler.
- Should Rast have pushed after the Turn? I doubt it would have mattered, but calling there isn't really slow-playing, Rast clearly was very strong.
- Ok, so Rast committed about half of his stack after the turn and had about 14 BBs left (with only 6 players left, crappier situation then at full table). Could he still have folded there? He had to consider the possibility that he is beat with the board paired.

My brother and I took the day off to take my dad to a poker tournament. He generally has very little idea what he's doing but of course he is killing it right now. I thought I could get a hold on his play but I'm down to pretty few blinds and he's probably a big reason for it. He's loving it, though.

Home game last night ran A8 into A9 on a A-A-9-8 board. No way I could get away from it.

Laydown of the decade if you actually read your opponent having A9.

He bet big on flop and he's a really tight player so I should have known. Any Ace bigger than mine obviously crushes me. I could have laid down on the flop. Not the turn.

Tough laydown no matter what.

Who was the pre-flop aggressor? Or was it a limped pot? That's where the mistake could have occurred.

I would not call a pre-flop raise from a tight opponent with a A-8. You are dominated way too many times in that situation.

I was on the button and made a 3.5x raise and got 3 callers. He was first to act after the flop.
