I think it's a really bad idea to bluff into 4 people when no one has even been given a chance to show weakness + you have almost no outs unless pairing your K is good. I'd say you got very lucky. I don't see this as being anything close to a +EV play.

what do you think of this play..

If you want to try to steal the pot, raising bigger preflop and then firing out a solid C-Bet will be much more effective, and much less risky. You're pretty much saying 'please call me' with a minraise here.

Don't even bother though 99% of the time here; you'll be out of position after the flop, you have a very marginal starting hand, and there's no need to bluff with your chip stack. I can think of a thousand different situations you would rather get your money in with. Check your option, see a flop, and dump it unless you hit it strong.

what about this call..glad i call here.

Useless without a HH...

HELLO INTERNET
the first hand is really bad for so many reasons (wtf @ preflop minraise, wtf @ bluffing flop into four people). run through it and try and justify each of your plays, i dare you ;)

i agree, about the 1st hand...totaly dum,
but i had been playing for 6+ hrs and after that long, it can get to you and it makes people do stupid things..
thats why i posted the pic of the other hand...
i called his allin bluff, i dident go allin.
both hands are from the same tournie.

i won 60 cents in a freeroll, worked it up to $2 in the 2cent limit, then took 1st in a 45 man tournie for $1.20, and won, $14.
and played the $2.50+.25 with 2212 players and ended in 7th,
won $126, guess it payed of this weekend.

what eles can i say.

oops
