  1. Re: a couple of micro hands. Always good to post Phantom, it helps all of us as we see what others think and makes us think as well! Looking forward to seeing some more Cheers Damian
  2. Re: a couple of micro hands. Hand 1: I would be raising the turn, 2 pair is good HU, but need to shut out the draws - so make it another $ on top of his bet hand 2: pretty much the same - got to be getting your money in on the flop or at least raising substantially with your over pair against a drawing flop Cheers Damian
  3. Re: Starting Again thanks all will see you all on NYE for the PL special if I don't catch up with on the tables sooner off to get my Grosvenor account sorted Cheers Damian

  7. Hello All Have been away for too long, but am back and looking forward to playing a bit of poker and chatting to the great people at PL. I would really appreciate some help in starting out again, so picking a good site to play at, understanding the best deals, and how poker is played now! I have £50 to deposit and play with and am interested in playing low stakes SNG's and micro cash tables, so I am obviously looking for sites that offer a welcome bonus with achievable targets as well as the usual value freerolls with which to play for free and maybe win a few quid. All help and advice is
  8. Re: Raising on the Button (and firing back) I think this is one of the best questions anyone can ask, simply because I don't think anyone can give you any kind of definitive answer except, 'it depends on the situation'. for instance: Is the SB & BB tight, then you can raise any two cards Is the button weak/loose on your BB, then you can resteal with any two cards What happens when that is not the case is pure judgement and skill, something that comes with experience. Excellent question :ok Damo
  9. Re: Another Hand from a focus If Davey and Hen have the same stack (or thereabouts), I am folding QQ in this position. Otherwise you have to beat two players to win the money.

  10. Re: Coolers / End Game / ICM / Stuff No, not really (in both cases) suited cards are about 2% better (give or take) regardless of his stats, its still an easy fold for me Damo
  11. Re: Another Hand from a focus I am calling here, you only need to win the side pot to get your money back (or as near as), with a chance to win an extra 1890 if you knock Davey out as well. Damo
  12. Re: Coolers / End Game / ICM / Stuff Re ICM: start with top 50%, then top 30%, then top 20% and see what results you get. I would discount ATC as I don't think he is that desperate (just yet). Damo
  13. Re: Coolers / End Game / ICM / Stuff Fold - 3 players to go through the blinds after you have smaller stacks than you Damo
  14. Re: Cooler KK in the BB - re-shove from a tight player Thanks GaF some interesting comments there :ok Damo
  15. Re: Cooler KK in the BB - re-shove from a tight player How to do ICM Calculations Damo
  16. Re: Cooler KK in the BB - re-shove from a tight player I stick to my read, based on what I saw at the table :lol:lol:lol Anyhoo, you all know what happened next :puke Damo
  17. Re: Coolers - lets discuss strategy auto check/fold button perhaps? multi-tabling and clicked fold? timed out? Is a womble?:lol Damo
  18. Re: Cooler KK in the BB - re-shove from a tight player Exactly right, without out we are pissing in the wind IMHO, yes I have KK, but I am desperae enough to call? Thats my real question, can I fold and still cash? or do i need to call here? Am really pleased with all the input, has made this a very interesting thread :clap Damo
  19. Re: Cooler KK in the BB - re-shove from a tight player spot on - by posting and discussing hands like this should all make us better players :ok Damo
  20. Re: Cooler KK in the BB - re-shove from a tight player Cheers Billy So now that he has 'made a move' I am calling or folding? Damo

    Re: David Benyamine This explains it more for me - about 24 secs into the video, just listen to what Doyle says. Doyle's Words of Widom Damo
  22. Re: Coolers - lets discuss strategy Seems like a standard play - look weak and hope for the shove and get them to put their chips in the middle for you nice one:ok Damo
  23. Re: Cooler, xx on Button Okay, heres a few hands you might raise with A2 to A-10 KQ - K 10 22-77 Now what?:ok Damo
  24. Re: Had a bad beat ? Come and have a moan here I think most folks consider a bad beat to be particularly rough (like more than 70/30 Preflop/flop), the 'BAD' suggests something more than just getting beaten. So AK vs AQ is a beat if you lose, AA vs 96 is a bead beat if you lose on a A37 rainbow flop and only get your chips in on the flop. Just my thoughts Damo
  25. Re: Cooler, xx on Button I saw it having read the rest of the thread after my post. I always post my answer first, without reading the rest of the posts so it doesn't cloud my judgment etc. BTW, what would you do if you did raise as 1st posted and the BB shoved? Call for pot odds or fold? Damo
