Online poker is rigged, didn't you get the memo?
Cool beans. What other hands would you balance that play with? I guess middling pairs like 99/TT?
Sets, actually. I think I miss too much value from air-type hands when I 3-betshove a flop like this with 55 because his range contains air (and there shouldn't be many fours in his range), and I'm not happy to check/raise the turn since it
1) lets him check back and see a river and doesn't allow me to get stacks in,
2) a turn checkraise screams "HAH! GOTCHA!" like nothing else, and
3) It confuses the **** out of regs. Wait, did I mention that already?
