-----I don't really like this line at all but it worked out better than
it should it have. Why are you shoving top pair like this?

LOL@Donks.-----

Ya I definitely didn't play this one by the book. Really risky push, but trouble was very aggressive so far, and I knew he was likely to bet had I checked, and I could trap him.

Basically I was trying to trap a weaker jack here...i dunno, not much to explain here, just a really overplayed TP that I felt was leading at that point.

-----I don't really like the preflop call with 6 people to act behind. How much of a reraise would
you have called? I raise this to 120 or so.
Not sure, but this was a passive table and I had a good chance of seeing a cheap flop and getting a shot at some big implied odds.
I really don't like raising this in EP. Another marginal hand out of position, and especially not for 120 - we're just bloating the pot in an unfavourable spot.

As played I like the flop and turn, but think you might have gotten a little more
value. Not sure how much, but my bet would have been around 200.-----

You're probably right. I put him on a 9 or smaller pair and didn't want to lose him...an ace raises the turn or at least bets the flop.

I nearly did, and would have too :/

The thing that stopped me was Irish's stack size. I wanted a 1500+ stack to call the bet because we're getting full implied value. I think a call is fine, sort of 50/50 here. Glad I didn't though.

I don't like stealing at this point. Blinds just aren't worth it, and people are still playing like maniacs. I'll definitely call a raise or limp in a multiway pot though.

I really don't like playing these types of hands; we have little potential with them. If I'm playing positional poker, I at least want like J8s or even 67s to start getting aggressive.

-----I would rather see this raised. I like the flop check/raise attempt
because we have been rather tight and will get allot more respect. The c/r attempt
might get an additional bet in this pot. Turn is good also.-----

I was actually going for a check-call here. Villain was very tag so far, and had only shown down premiums and strong positional hands IIRC. His raise means something that my hand probably is beaten by, and this is kind of a WA/WB position if we forget about the FD.

I was intending to check-call and reevaluate on the turn, maybe put out a bet or check-raise, or even check-call again. He'd either have AA/KK/AQ/QQ or a smaller pair and I don't want to go crazy.

PF is weak, I agree.

yeah, just an odds call. 88 is at the top of his pushing range there.

Another reason to call is to show we won't give in lightly to blind steals and that we'll call with the worse of hands with decent odds; ie metagame.

-----This was a forum hand also. I agree with your turn bet more than
a push. I feel like we get more value from the turn bet. There will be some
hands that call our turn that wouldn't call a push. But, basically, we
have to be willing to get it all in on the river anyway.-----


Still not sure about it...a push is a little much (folds draws out), but a small bet like this isn't great. We're putting in half his stack, and if he calls and misses a draw, he'll be at <10BBs, ie he'll be less inclined to call this than a smaller bet. But a smaller bet gives him odds. I dunno. Hence why I posted it.

-----Positional raise from the large stack. Standard IMO-----

Agreed; now a hand with showdown value, though. Easy push here vs the nitty, weak BB.

Not sure what you mean in the second paragraph. PF or postflop?

I was in the SB here, and really didn't want to get called here by someone with position on me. Hence the big bet PF. I would've had to stick the shortstack in after his call had I hit or not.

to get involved.-----

A little weak again though...Giu is very aggro and I think I just wanted to get position on him. This is exactly what aggros want though; cheap flops with marginal hands.

a mistake that allot of people make here. You are in the small blind
and it wouldn't cost you much to call this. However, A8 suited is really
marginal, and the big blind is yet to act. If we make this call and big blind
raises we are dead money. It is best to avoid situations like this.

Correct fold.-----


Agreed. UTG was very tight, and taking his position into account, we're crushed by his range. snapfold for me.

-----I wouldn't mind seeing this hand raised. You haven't been very active

I see what you're saying; the thing is that the table (Giu and luke specifically) is pretty aggro. Limp-calling at this point is terrible, but I don't mind raising. On any tighter table I'm doing it.

I don't mind the baby aces at this point. I'm mostly missing flops anyways, so I might as well raise with the marginal

~22/18/3. EP raise with Giu to act means strength, but KQs is still probably good enough to call here.

I folded because I just didn't like the situation. We're often missing the flop and check-folding, occasionally outflopping him and winning some chips, and occasionally getting in trouble with TP vs a better hand. I just prefer first-in raises. A little weak here, though, I agree.

flop and I agree with the fold.-----

Yep, getting card dead now and need to start making some moves. Ugly ugly flop and I have no choice but to fold.

-----I agree with this line. Scary flop, but, we are getting short and don't
have much choice but to push.-----


Some notes again. Giu always raised with his aces PF, and I was almost sure he didn't have one here. Push is a little much, but I definitely don't want to put out a c-bet and have to call a tough push.

Not much to do with 15k in the pot and 15k in my stack, though.

Villain was very loose-passive and probably hit this flop. Hence my check. Check again on the turn, I decide to take a shot with a delayed c-bet, and I'm through once he calls.

Not at all. I've got a decent read on Giu now, but didn't exploit it enough. His minraises are usually garbage, his standard ones are premiums.

Don't know what I was trying to do here. Villain is a calling station and probably has a jack/67 here.

I put on a little show and tank to show I'm not 3-betting the flop with nothing, and that I had a tough decision.

-----Marginal flop call against two villains IMO. I also think you lost some
value by not betting the river. You would have been called by allot of single pairs.-----


Just want to explain my thought process. I almost bet the flop, but 007 was a little aggro and I wanted to trap him. His minbet was fishy, and I didn't like steffer's call (K/8/small pp/FD).

At this point I'm just happy to check it down, and with the river filling the flush I was a little timid.

Exactly. He's shown that he'll check down some weak pairs, and I'm happy to get a free showdown here.

No point in betting if he's got unimproved undercards, and he's not laying down any pair, so I might as well check it down.

-----The preflop call vs. raise is ok because we are not stacked deep enough

My thoughts were that he's either got us crushed, or has a weaker hand that he won't lay down to a raise. I can't fold AJ at this point, and maybe a call is a little weak, but I think it was my best option.

Flop bet is terribly weak and I raise to see where I'm at and to protect vs the draw-heavy board.

easily gotten stacked here. Your line looks good here.-----


Agreed. Board's looking very scary by the river with his action, and a FD isn't calling me, so a check is best.

Bugger hooked me in.

-----I like the flop check vs. this villain. He has to be bordering on
calling station. The turn check by villain tells us that we are ahead
and we can fire at will. Very well played sir.-----

Just another delayed c-bet, and with tons of outs on the turn.

-----Agree with the fold. Jones has been nitty and I haven't seen King
step out of line much.-----


Agreed again. Even without 007's overcall this would have been a pretty easy fold. I haven't been abusing my button at all, and his resteal can only mean a range that crushes TT. Add in 007's call, and I'm beyond crushed.

-----I don't agree with folding this one. Even though I hate 22-55, steffer
has a really wide range and has been stealing as the big stack for a very
long time. I've seen him fold to a 3-bet a number of times. I think the times
that he folds to the 3-bet and the fact that we are more than likely racing
at worst dictates a push.-----

Racing at worst? We're racing at best...

This is a little light for me vs someone as loose as him; even though he's shown he'll back down occasionally, I can't pull the trigger here.

Yeah, money's going in no matter what here. Unless steffer reraises or something.

Overall this tourney was played extremely well. Your small stack play is
very good. Congratulations on the third place finish sir. It was definately
hard fought.


Thanks once again, Tos. Much appreciated!

Excellent job guys. The two you have done are great reads and insightful. And, like NL said, it gives me something to do while I'm donking off chips in sngs.

If anyone is interested, I'd be willing to work through more hand histories.

I took all of my money off of Stars a little over a month ago to make a down payment on a new truck. I'm using these hand history audits as a means to not lose my edge until I get some more money deposited. This might be awhile with Christmas coming up soon.

PM me if you would like me to take a look for you. I can't promise anything, but, you would be doing me a favor too.
