Obviously.

In my defense, though, cuz I know im probably going get lectured on my bad play...I absolutely suck at cash games. I have no idea what Im doing, what I should be doing, and if what I am doing is wrong or right. So, please dont bash me.

you played it fine philthy. like 3 hands in his range beat you (22,55,88.. i guess maybe like 85s if he's gamboling really hard PF, idk cause i wasn't there), and it's likely those hands raise your initial flop bet. i wouldn't be surprised if chris plays in such a way that you're almost never behind vs. this line

his play is pretty silly but it's probably cause its 2nl and GAMBOOOOOL

lol at Chris stacking off with TPTK 350+ bb's deep. Although he's pushing, almost turning his hand into a bluff, but it doesn't fold out anything worse. Basically it's like 23rd level thinking where you think it doesn't make any sense and call with a weak hand like 2nd pair thinking he's pushing with overs. Of course if he's able to induce calls from 2nd pair he's going to get a call from an overpair lol and then of course he had the brilliant read of the turn.

As to the poll question, it makes no sense. You both had 2 separate hands to play and to compare the two is comparing apples and oranges. Now if we had a separate hand where Philthy played TPTK or DM playing an overpair with an overbet shove like that, we could compare the plays, but in this case they had different situations, and both made decisions with different information available. Obviously strictly Sklansky-wise (less mistakes) Philthy obviously played better because he had the best hand and got all the money in, although it couldn't stop DM from sucking out.

trust me it's really not 23rd level thinking. im not sure my thought processes here even qualify as 1st level thinking.

i should post some of the minraise wars kingcurtis and i had where i continually sucked out on him too after 11-betting the turn and other fun stuff.

as i said at the table, i'm kinda peeved i can't run that good when playing $50NL and playing properly and soberly. i experienced the other side of 'donk on a heater' last night, heh. :(

huh wierd. killer3333 is in my search list. Usually names I don't recognize there are there for this reason.

must be I'm mistaken. sorry about that, must be I saw your name in a rail thread and searched it or something like that.

Yeah, now I see, after searching my HH's I see it's winomike44 I was thinking of. Sincere apologies kcanuck. I'm not an idiot all of the time

nice coverup un-diluted. Thats funny, kcanuck has been outed as a limit fish. Now if we could just find him there...
Tough beat for microstakes Philthy vs Dorkus slumming, but i guess after Zachvacs "move" with 2/4 last time you're even.

I picked you, Philthy. Mostly because you asked the question. :)

I'm not normally making a call like that against someone like Dorkus. Doing so is -EV.

Now, it being a friendly game... winning isn't the goal so people play a bit whacky. (Real hand, but the $ is 10x too high) So there's going to be ego-bluffing and stuff so who know what's +EV? And really, I'd argue that the purpose of the game isn't to take money from friends, so who really cares?

Lol, no harm done. I was just surprised to be pegged as a fish in a game that I don't play.

You might want to put me on your mtt fish list though;)
