Preflop Raise Sizing -- Take II

This is not fact but opinion.

Raise to give callers 1.5:1 pot odds in MTT.

If there are limpers ahead a better hand is required to raise (ATo mucked) but raise is increased by amount of limps.

Reraise resteals should be pot sized unless you become pot committed then reraise jam.

Preflop Raising Sizing in MTTs


I have finally gotten software support at work and have found recently that even I don't have time to read a whole Hoy post. Especially when he publishes after my lunch time.

When raising pre-flop choose a raise size to give BB 1.5:1 odds to call.

Almost No Poker Content

Fucking Surflexus won his seventh fucking Mookie tournament last night.

Job was looking better Monday, now it sucks.

Boss being eunuch is reason.

Mooke Curse

Winning the Mookie basically means you are a luckdonk suckbox idiot. Congratulations to Emptyman for being the latest to prove he sucks at poker.

Chat ban is unfair if I can not get ban.

Lost yawn.

Reversal of Fortune

Sorry for late posting, left work with sinus headache this morning.

It is 3 degress in NY brrrr, 67 in San Jose.

Tilt has lifted, it's a miracle. Cashed in FTOPS 9 despite AA being cracked by a turned set two hands in. Congrats to Chad for 35th! Played 7 SNG Sunday with 7 cashes. The mood has lifted.

Lesson of the Day:
When you get caught stealing just admit you got caught stealing and fold when you obviously get caught and are holding a hand that is quite likely dominated and almost surely behind

Tonight is 6 Max NLHE tonight with the MATH and FTOPS 10. Wish Hoy and Bayne and any other bloggers playing luck.

Tilt Continues

Tilt sucks, need to turn it around tonight or Event #9.

Even Chad tilts:

Dealer: Aaron Bartley shows 8,7,6,3,2
Dealer: cracknaces shows 7,6,4,2,A
Dealer: cracknaces wins the pot (3,398) with 7,6,4,2,A
Dealer: Hand #5165521026
cracknaces: just for you Bartley
Aaron Bartley: now THATS bad
cracknaces: fight fire wirh fire, how does it feel to be donked?
Aaron Bartley: shrug, thanks for trying

That pretty much made my night. Bartley is about as bad a HORSE player as there is among the ftp "pros".

FTOPS begins

Wednesday Poker sucked.

Congratulations to Joe Speaker who cashed in 344th place for $436 in FTOPS 1.

Futile quest for a Mook title continues today.

"Skillz" series saw Waffles blow a 6:1 chip lead and prospect of bonus prizes that would make his head explode to ANIguy. It is now clear to me that knowing how to play the skill game of the evening is a liability in the blogger skill fests.

Pokerstars players are worse, riverbeats are worse, User Interface lack of "bet pot" button is terrible oversight, last hand functionality sucks but the folded hand and mtt sats sgutting down on bubble break is better.

MATH Recap

Congrats to the Cashers:

1. $288 -- Tripjax
2. $216 -- astin
3. $144 -- pureprophet
4. $72 -- Pirate Wes

Pokerstars still has awful players who will lay awful beats.

Psychic Monday

Congrats to Giants for knocking off the Cheatriots in Super Bowl.
Obviously with weekend revelations that Patriots era began with taping walk thru of Rams in 1999 Super Bowl some kharmic payback was in order.

MATH is tonight 6-Max NLHE on FullTilt 10 eastern.
