MATH Recap, and Semi-Bluffing on the Flop

corron10 won the math.

A little self control is called for when semi-bluffing.

It is better to semi-bluff a ragged flop than a flop that has big cards that the blackjack donkeys play.

An example, deep stacked cash sitting in CO with JT.

EP raises to 7, you in CO call, SB calls.

Flop is K Q small rainbow.

SB checks, initial raiser checks.

It is great flop for your hand (but not as good as 98). Semi-bluff here has issues because the big cards are likely cards for SB to have called with or initial raiser to have hit 1.

Turn 9, patience is rewarded and you have hit the "better straight". Now turn bet is called by SB initial raiser folds and you take down a pot where SB can not fold top 2 pair.

The Law Chica Scores Again, and Single Stacks vs Double Stacks

Congrats to lawchica for 2nd in 32k and Smokkee for his 3rd in 40k. (apparently you need a $5k+ score to rate a Hoy shout out anymore).


Mookie change back to single stacks means you have to change your approach. Splashing around for 1/10th of stack with 97s can lead to becoming shorty early. By end of 1st hour raising a pot can mean you are pot committed.

Wii Homerun Hitting during breaks (4th on) is key to going deep in 50-50.

Shitty Bracelet Race Schedule, and Cash Hand Concluded

MATH 10 ET pw Hammer.

Bracelet Races schedule fawked the United States customers off, hard!

KQ hand they really tried to hose me by making me actually go from way ahead to way behind for a $565 pot on the turn there, before the river resuck made all right in the world again. Now if I don't hit the Queen on the river, is anybody possibly getting away from this hand at the end?

Mid-Game Tournament Question Revisited

Congrats to corron10 for taking down this week's Skills Series in Stud Hi.

Racing for my stack with 1/3 of field left is a short stacks move. As big stack I want to preserve and accumulate in sits where I know I am favorite.

Limping KQs is not terrible despite popular sentiment.
