So you rather say good play instead of nh. Both are good in itself, yes granted. If you can make the whole table fold before the flop. That is a good play then again you don't know what "cards" they have to determine if it is a good play. Most of us know that 3X The BB with AA and KK is a good play. Analogy I think would be that of making a layup in basketball or if you are tall enough a slam dunk. Yet back to the 3,4 and someone calls and the 3,4 doesn't flop anything. Now do you call it a good play or bonehead move? Is it now a good bluff try? How about that person who has AX(s) and takes a chance on the "Nut" flush. The flop gives him 2 other suited cards. He calls all the way to the river even though he has a 35% of getting the nut flush including the river card. I think the question remains "Will it turn out to be a good play or a bad play? I prefer to call it bonhead cause I have definatly made some bonhead moves. Ever congratulate yourself on a good play? The way I do that, and I wouldn't do it in person. I flip my computer screen the bird, think to myself "Ha I got you that time". Yet when I lose on a bonhead play and it happened today. I bluffed all the way to the river with Queen, 6. Firing bullets(bets) all the way there. Highest card on the table was a 10. Queen hits the river, now Ego kicks in of course. I bet my bullet cause I was starting "low" stack. Guy bets the rest of my stack re-raise. I had a choice but went all-in anyway. Stopped thinking by that point. Lost to Queen,10.
I admit I didn't say nh cause I knew the second I saw I lost that it was a bonehead play, closed the game window, shut down the poker site
. Would I do that again? Probably cause I still am learning to read the board and slowly learning to leave my "Ego" out the door. LOL Basically I left in shame, well in my mind it was.
oops sorry.. no paragraph breaks.. still learning that as well. Always hated english...
