re: Poker & Poker the Marginal Way AMA
There were 2 slightly interesting spots.
first we are 5/10/25. 10k deep.
Im from SB folded to me I have K996sscc i open to 75, straddle repops to 225. We have decent history together, hes quite competent on a bit of life tilt cause he has won a hand since May.
flop is T32 rainbow, 1 spade, 1 club. it goes check check
Turn is the 7c I lead for 325, he calls.
River is the J spades. Obv I have nothing at this point but I pretty much block the world so I bet 1,050. He folds TT face up, think its a bit nitty but I do have loads of 89s in my range that would bet the turn.
The next hand happened a lot earlier in the session, Im a little hazy on the card details but the action is correct.
Same reg above, hes sitting with 2.3k, I cover and random fish has 400.
Fish opens, we 3 bet, reg 4 bets. I 5 bet to 650 (pot), he tank calls, fish is all in.
Flop comes QQx, I check and reg insta pots. now its good to note the side pot has like 400 in it and he pots for 1575 or there abouts. It just doesnt make sense to does not make sense to do this with a Q but obviously if it doesnt make sense it does make sense. I call he has TJ98. We run it twice. he hits runner runner T8 for straight on first one and second one i fade.
Should be back tonight, just have a dinner to attend then Id be there grinding again. There were 2 Israeli business men who came by at 2am, they were not terrible but they are good for the game, they said they would stop by again tonight so thats something to look forward to.
