re: Poker & Dealing with the perpetual button/ sb raiser
I suppose that would depend (doesn't everything in poker? ).
Depending on my reads, our chip stacks (and of course my holding), I might either come over the top and show him I'm not someone to put plays on, or I might just call and see what he does on the turn. Generally, though, stacks are small enough that a check-raise to a C-bet is a decent-sized portion of anyone's stack, so I'd have to either push or fold in that situation.
I generally try to steal weak and/or tight players' blinds, so that I avoid these tricky situations altogether. I'd definitely have to have a strong note on the guy that he pulls daring bluffs like that in order to make a reraise or call.
