  1. Re: numbers men needed Bruise - you are right, that because there is so much traffic in here, the thread will get more views - but it really is a post for S&S. I will leave it here out of respect for you big man but only for an hour. After that it is going where it belongs or all and sundry will be posting all over the place. :( I'm sure you understand. :ok

  2. I love listening to music when I play poker but what is the greatest song about poker ever? I like many but Stevie V "Dirty Cash" is a good one. But my favourite has to be by Kenny Rogers - The Gambler. Lyrics as follows. On a warm summer’s evenin’ on a train bound for nowhere, I met up with the gambler; we were both too tired to sleep. So we took turns a starin’ out the window at the darkness ’til boredom overtook us, and he began to speak. He said, son, I’ve made a life out of readin’ people’s faces, And knowin’ what their cards were by the way they held their eyes. So if you don’t mind my sayin’, I can see you’re out of aces. For a taste of your whiskey I’ll give you some advice. So I handed him my bottle and he drank down my last swallow. Then he bummed a cigarette and asked me for a light. And the night got deathly quiet, and his face lost all expression. Said, if you’re gonna play the game, boy, ya gotta learn to play it right. You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, Know when to walk away and know when to run. You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table. There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done. Now ev’ry gambler knows that the secret to survivin’ Is knowin’ what to throw away and knowing what to keep. ’cause ev’ry hand’s a winner and ev’ry hand’s a loser, And the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep. So when he’d finished speakin’, he turned back towards the window, Crushed out his cigarette and faded off to sleep. And somewhere in the darkness the gambler, he broke even. But in his final words I found an ace that I could keep. You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, Know when to walk away and know when to run. You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table. There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done. You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, Know when to walk away and know when to run. You never count you r money when you’re sittin’ at the table. There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done.

  3. Re: If you're playing now... All on this thread please. Four players including me see the flop. Reasonable action pre flop but I call as I am well up. I have 5,6 off suit. Flop comes 6,7,8 and there is a flush draw on too (can't remember the suit but I'm not involved). Lots of action after the flop. The raise goes to $40. Everyone calls except me (I am in late position and am last to decide). I fold as I reckon the following. a) There was some action preflop indicating decent hands and a very likely J,10 out there which some people love. If this is true I am drawing dead already. b) There is also a flush on the board. If that hits and I make my straight I am in a nightmare stiuation. c) With three callers I know I am behind (I must be). Anyway the turn comes (can't remember the card). A bit of action follows. The river turns a 4. I would have made the straight on the low side. The winning hand was two pair 88 77. (He flopped them). I think I played the hand right but seeing as I was up $100 in 5 minutes against this lot I should have known they were fish. In conclusion I think I played the cards right but the players wrongly. :eyes

  4. Re: Folding AA I see what you're saying Mr Onemore but I would still call the raise. If I'm not going to call the weaker player with AA when am I going to catch him? (I guess your answer here is after the flop and outplay him - but weak players call with rags in the hope for their 50-1 shot coming in anyway). Maybe some players would fold AA but I think that is a sign of a tight + weak player and I find those the easiest to beat (no offence - this is poker talk, not personal :lol ) Furthermore I still find it hard to believe that any pro would fold AA pre flop. Jez - get your arse in here! You're not a mod for your personality. :lol :lol

  5. Re: Folding AA

    I'd say there will be situations where folding AA will be the percentage play to win the tournament.
    I'm a decent player but no expert I admit. However I just can't understand this argument. You have to be ahead no matter what (pre flop) so the percentages are in your favour. It's like any successful betting strategy - if you spot VALUE you have to take the bet. I'll bow to the superior knowledge of others if I see an enlightening counter argument though. :(
  6. Re: Folding AA

    Surely there are plenty of situations in a tournament when folding AA is actually the right play, even pre-flop. If someone in front puts a big raise in , you might rapidly find yourself in an all-in situation, and even if slight (odds are not 'stacked' in ones favour yet...) favourite for the pot you are actually risking your whole tournament 'blind'.
    I simply don't agree with you mate. I don't care how far in I am in a tourney. Calling a big raise that puts me all in with AA pre flop is ok with me. I will win the hand more than I lose it giving me a real chance of winning the whole tourney rather than limping into the final and taking a minor placing. Also I believe top players don't think in the way you have outlined above. They disregard how far into a tourney they are. Calling a big raise, pre flop with AA is the right play and I believe any pro would play this way.
    typically, it's weak players who will continue with AA after a bad flop, they just can't let them go
    I totally agree with that second quote though.
  7. Re: Folding AA In short - "No" I would never fold AA pre flop as it is the best hand you can be dealt. No matter how big the raise is from another player you have to be in front unless they have AA as well. The odds are stacked in your favour so playing the hand / calling another persons raise will always (statistically) be the correct play.

  8. Re: If you're playing now... All on this thread please. Cheers Jez. I'll claim that $50 don't you worry!!! In Manora Bay on PokerParadise now. You have to use the "LOBBY" tab at the top left to filter what kind of tables you want. I just won $20 on a fixed limit table (didn't know it was fixed limit until that hand) - I would have cleared a $100 and he / she would have called too. Bah. I'll get used to the software. It's not too bad actually. :\
