re: Poker & Who are these guys!!
so basically going with a "gut instinct" is wrong because a bunch of people say it's wrong? i'm sorry, and i don't mean to offend anyone, but if i feel good enough about a hand to limp in with a 7-2 off, or call a raise on the same hand (or any hand) if i'm in the blinds, thats noones buisness but my own and they should be a little more grown up about it when they get beat by a hand like that. and if i lose on that hand, then it's on to the next one. lets try and remember that it's called gambling for a reason. what about when someone bluffs a pot, and takes it down. is that a bad play too, just because they've successfully misrepresented the cards they hold as being the best for that hand. i don't think so, and i doubt very much that anyone will ever convince me otherwise. ultimately, doesn't it all come down to a players preferences. and no i'm not exactly new to poker and have won my fair share of SNG's and tourneys, as well as live games.
i'm just venting because it shouldn't matter what one plays. the real winner of a hand is not discovered until the river card comes down,it's just a matter of whether a person is willing to pay that price to see it. just my opinion.
cheers and gl at the tables
