Posted 07-08-09 at 07:35 AM by Zybomb

Previous action and flop texture is super important in NLHE in determining a range of hands your opponents can have. Its also important in determining the range of hands that your opponent can believe that you have.

This post will probably be basic to some of the higher limit or more advanced players but should be helpful to some of the smaller stakes or less advanced ones.

Readjusting to the current styles

Posted 05-04-09 at 06:52 PM by Zybomb

Times have changed in poker and the way people play has adapted and changed as well. For instance several years ago, it was fairly common to see players raising with top pair when their opponents bet (raising for information, value whatever). Because of this, a hand like TPTK was a big hand, and would easily call a raise, and likely another bet on the next street. Lately however players are much more likely to simply flat a bet with TP (raising for information is pretty much outdated, and raising...

Sattys are fun

I suppose I'll blog...

As everyone knows Im not a big online player (or tournament player for that matter), but I did play in the Sunday Million this past weekend. I folded a lot of questionable spots, where I had a feeling I was behind and it was for my tournament life or close to it... but a lot of these spots could have built my stack nicely and gave me a deep run. I was in decent shape like 30 of 450 with 306 cashing at one point but a few situations combined with a few raise...

To discuss tonight's events, I began up $1000 after I was paid off when I turned the nut straight by KQ. Had 75 in a 4 way $35 raised pot. Flop was Q 6 4 rainbow, flop went check check $80 call, call fold. Turn was an 8 check, check, $190 call fold,...

Snow Plows

Posted 03-03-09 at 07:57 PM by Zybomb

We got about 8 inches of Snow Sunday.

(For TP RD and others, snow is that foreign white stuff that you see on the ground in TV and movies sometimes)

My car was parked a half a block off of my street, on the cross street, which is more of "main" street than my actual block.

I didn't go to my car until this afternoon and walked to it to find it covered up to the Window in snow because of the plows who decided to completely box me in. Interesting...
