re: Poker & Just keep getting it in ahead
Sorry, but I'm not looking to spoon feed answers. I'm also not going to tell you I have cash games 100% figured out. I was hoping for some input from others that didn't just stick to the general advice I keep seeing posted on here day after day about "getting it in good".
If I get my money in with top set with no flush or straight draws on the board and lose the hand, you are saying I've made a mistake.
I would agree you definitely didn't make a mistake here, and I think if "good" is properly defined than those statements can apply. The problem is that "good" is often defined loosely as "being better than a 50/50 favourite when the money goes in" on a lot of the threads I've read. Look back at the first few replies I got.
I was hoping to start a discussion of what the appropriate goals of a cash game player should be, without using those tired old sayings. Maybe I'm trolling, as I've never really been a forum guy, just a poker player, and I'm trying to keep the discussion moving forward.
Maybe I'll just step out of this thread and see what it evolves into without me (which was my initial intention, until I saw the /thread comment).
What should be the specific goals of a cash game player, in your opinion?
