Again, not many hands to analyze considering NL is a tight player, but a few interesting hands in there.

For one, we should always buy in for the max. Also, I don't like posting the BB out of turn. I'm not sure where to start with the calculations, but I'm pretty sure it's a -EV move.

With only one person in the hand, and a player who's been forced in at that, I think we can make a little positional steal here.

Folding is absolutely fine, but when there's dead money in the pot and people are showing weakness, it's always a nice spot to steal.

Getting 7:1, we can call with just about any two here. As I mentioned in MrS's analysis, I prefer more connected cards, but any two is fine.

We can toss out a little bet here and see if we can take it down. Check-calling is very often a draw, and it's pretty see-through sometimes. Especially w/ a TAG like you.

*** TURN *** [2c 5h 3s] A♥
Ninelions: checks

Now here's the problem; there's a 4-straight on the board, villain probably has a small or medium pair, and if you bet, you scare him away. We do have to make up for the bad drawing odds on the flop though (2.33:1 on a ~5:1 shot) with our implied odds, so we have to bet at sometime.

Often times, players don't believe you when you make a very obvious play. ie check-calling a flop like that, then leading this turn.

I like the second bet. A lot of players will slow down here and either give an opponent the chance to bluff him off his hand, or give an opponent a free card to break him. We're up against a pretty loose player by my watch, and he could have anything here.

Bet to find out where you're at, and take it from there. wp.

Well again we've roped in the fish. We can go both ways here; we could check and hope to induce a bluff (or avoid the tough call when he's got a set), or we can lead with the thinking that he'll call any marginal hand since you've shown aggression to the river before and he probably doesn't want to give in again.

I like the bet though. wp again.

A marginal hand, obviously, but with all the limpers and our position I don't mind it that much. A lot of the time we'll be up against AT and similar hands, so we have to make sure we don't get too involved without 2 pair or better, or at least a big draw.

Well done NL, I agree its pretty solid play. The JJ UTG hand is always hard to play when you raise and get called (even more hard when you get reraised). There will be an overcard more than 50% of times on the flop. I think you handled it really well by staying aggressive. Its a tough one to play.

The rest also seems good.

Thanks Chuck.

I pulled this session out of the hat; one of the first stabs at this limit and one that had some winning and some losing sessions, but I didn't look to see for certain that there were any interesting hands or not.


I agree that one should buy in a full bankroll. I don't only when I'm doing something new; in this case a new level, or, when I start to try mulitabling.


The non-betting hand where I hit the straight, don't ask me why but I felt like he was on the edge of betting the turn and decided not to, so I expected him to take a stab at the river.

What probably happened is his dog came into the room, or the telephone rang or something and I interpreted his hesitation as wanting to bet.
:)


Thanks again.

Well done NL, I agree its pretty solid play. The JJ UTG hand is always hard to play when you raise and get called (even more hard when you get reraised). There will be an overcard more than 50% of times on the flop. I think you handled it really well by staying aggressive. Its a tough one to play.

The rest also seems good.

Thanks for taking a look, joe.

I have to learn some of this aggressive against selective players, I think I'm folding my TPTK too much. Nice session!
