What would you do? Poker hand of the Week.

Recommended Posts

Sorry to hear about your disconnections Katt - that is very frustrating and definitely hampers play.

 

Any "noteworthy" hands or "what would you have done" hands?

I see you caught that you called me Rosebud... I like her so I don't mind! As for the noteworthy hands, I was so flustered having to repeatedly get back on the net that I can't remember much about the hands.  I know there is one that I stuck with and was not sure if I should have, but it worked out in my favor when I got the last card for a full house and put me on a more level playing field with the one player I spoke of  that was playing a good game of poker. Maybe later I can go back and look at the game history and find a good one.

Yes - I don't know what I was thinking of there Katt.  I do apologise (I was hoping you hadn't spotted it)  I am tired and really should be in bed as it has gone midnight here. 

 

I look forward to that hand, if you can find it.

I have not gone back for that other one, but I have one from a small tourney I just played... I did not do well on this, but not sure what I should have done.... here is the history screen: 11311ElDoradoHand.JPG?13e42de1-3ab5-47c2-b257-24f33b5de0cc

As you can see I was BB with a pretty useless 8,10 off suit... but I checked as no one raised pre-flop. At the flop I ended up with 2 pairs... 8's & 10's... this opposing player bid pretty much as he had on most hands, which was to bid more than the minimum but not outrageously high. I called. The turn was a 3, no apparent help to anyone and opponent did his usual by raising a bit higher, I called again. The river and another little 3... and we both checked. That last little 3 gave the hand to my opponent... and I went down in flames...

 

So, here you see what I did, but what would you have done? I will tell you what I think I should have done after I hear back...

I think I may have figured out why I was getting disconnected... now I have to figure out how to fix it.

 

There is a church 2 doors down and I was getting disconnected on Sunday mornings quite often... well today I saw the "disciples of Fresno" in my list of available networks with a medium strong signal... and a check box that says "connect automatically" and the check won't stay unchecked... Can't see them in "My Networks" file to say "never connect" either. So, when they turn on their router it knocks me out with my computer trying to connect to them. Hmmmmmm....

 

Anyway, thanks Rosebud for not minding either... maybe we should just swap names for a while and see how that goes. LOL LOL LOL

This isn't what would you do...This is what I did.   :) :)

 

Playing in the $1 entry big bucks tourney again tonight.  They have it every night at 7:25 pm CST.  So I get past the break which is very hard to do.  It is 90 minutes before the break.  Then I buy 30k chips for $1 and have 68,000 to start after the break.  Win a few hands and am up to 103,000 chips.  

 

I am dealt pair of Q's.  Player before me goes all in with 111,000 chips.  I go all in.  He shows A7 diamonds.  Flop comes 7, 7, 5.  Then 2 and 4 or something small.  

 

Can you believe it?  Knocked out again!  

 

Poker is very frustrating.   8p 8p 8p

Hey I like our new moniker! And you may be right... I always think "Here come the disciples after me again." Just never connected that they were knocking me off the internet before.

 

Poor Medtrans...  :'( that is a BAD BAD BEAT! I would have done the same as you I am sure! But tomorrow is another chance! If you don't mind telling, what poker room is that tourney at?

 

I still want to know what you guys would have done on my game up there a few posts ago...  *-*

Katt, if I hit two pairs on the flop I would probably bet a big but not ridiculous raise over the top of any bets i.e. re-raise his bet. 

 

If not that, I would play as you did but grab that missed opportunity on the river.  If you had bet the value of the entire pot plus a bit more on the river (the 2nd 3), he "may" well have folded as you would be representing that you had trip 3s.

 

It's a difficult hand to play because you were winning up to the flop.  The fact that he did not raise pre-flop shows he was possibly trying to trap you.

 

What was your chipstack and what was his chipstack before the hand started?

Medtrans,

 

That is just sods law.  What a bummer.  The thing is that bad beats are inevitable and it happens in real life but that said, all in with A7?  What was he thinking.

 

Sorry you lost with your great hand.

 

Which site are you playing on?

Blue, my stack was about $900 and his was about $2100... I am nervous with 2 pair because I keep getting slam-dunked when that is my hand... he was looking at strong cards, but post flop I had 2 pair against his Aces, I think he would have re-raised just by the style of his play... my downfall was that lack of confidence in my 2 pair... but you're right I needed to hit it hard at the river, well as hard as I could with my last $300... still with his aces he would have hung on I think, so I was doomed either way... but, standing behind my 2 pair to the end is what I should have done and it was just the luck of the cards he got that other itty bitty 3... I need to stop being so timid just because I have lost hands with a certain combination like the 2 pair problem I seem to have... more confidence, stronger bidding, make them give up before the showdown... yeah, that's the ticket! ?! $$ !! LOL LOL LOL

I found some great info on hitting hands on the flop

 

Hitting the Flop (pairs and draws)

 

One pair 29% or 2.5:1

Two Pairs 2% or 49:1

A Set (when holding a pair in the hole) 11.8% or 7.5:1

Trips (two of a rank on the flop) 1.35% or 73:1

Full house .09% or 1087:1

Four of a kind .01% or 9799:1

A pair or better 32% or 2.1:1

A flush draw (with 2 suited cards under) 11% or 8.1:1

A flush draw (with 1 cards under, 3 flush flop) 1.1% or 91:1

A flush (with 2 suited cards under) .84% or 118:1

A backdoor flush (getting 2 running suits) # 4.6% or 23:1

A 8 out straight draw (with hole connectors) 10.5% or 8.5:1

A straight (with hole connectors) 1.31% or 76:1

An inside straight draw (with hole connector) 21.6% or 3.6:1

A flush or 8 out straight draw (with hole connectors) 16% or 1:5.25

A backdoor straight (with 3 to the straight) * 2.96% or 32.8:1

Any unsuited hand flopping 2 pair, trips, full house, or quads 3.45% or 28:1

Any suited hand flopping 2 pair, trips, flush, full house, or quads 4.29% or 22.3:1

54o-JTo flopping 2 pair, trips, straight, full house, or quads 4.76% or 20:1

 

:`o

 

This definitely shows the strength of your hand Katt. 

 

I don't think your opponent would have folded unless you went all in on the flop. Even then it is debatable as he had top pair, top kicker and 2.5 times your stack.

 

Don't let previous games cloud your judgement Katt.

Great info blue! Funny, as I was reading the odds I had not scrolled down to where I could see your final comments... but, I thought to myself, I should have made my major move at the flop... only time I might have had a chance of getting him to throw in the towel, but even then with his stack vis a vis mine it would probably not have worked, but still is what I should have tried.

 

And you are so right... I should not let prior games or even prior hands in the same game cloud my judgement on the present hand in play! Definitely something to work on, but only when I am not busy practicing keeping my poker face!  LOL LOL LOL

Sorry you lost with your great hand.

 

Which site are you playing on?

Playing at sportsbook.ag.  All in with A7 you say?  They all do it.  Lots do it with K6 and a bunch of other rubbish.  Funny thing is a lot of them win against AK, AQ, etc.  Makes me wonder about the RNG there.

That is what frustrates me most Medtrans... how are you supposed to play poker when that is the case... a good bluff now and then is fine, but this all-in on rubbish then winning the hand gets to me. No class, no style, and certainly no finesse!

That's why I quit playing poker some time ago.  The stupid play.  And it is all because entry is only $1 or $2.  I am sure you wouldn't see that kind of play in tourneys with much higher entry fees.  We should ask Zuga.

 

Zuga?  What's the scoop?  Tell us you don't see this kind of play when entry fee is say $30 or more?

I think you will - not as bad but you will see it.  I was watching the final table of the Gtd 100,000 on PS and some of the hands were dire.  However, the play was all about stealing the blinds which were 600,000/1,200,000.

 

Definitely worth stealing.  I saw one player who had 72 off steal the pot from one player who had K10 off.  Good play or......?

With those blinds I guess I can see doing it especially depending on your chip stack, how many players left, etc.

 

I am talking more about the bad play I see in low stakes tourneys...like when katt said she was heads up and her opp went all in on EVERY hand.  That is nuts!

 

Thanks for the response blue.

Here is a hand I played a little while ago, SitnGo $1.10 to get in the game and you can see what I did on the picture, but since I have once again been taken down when I had a high pair  :O I need input about betting these kinds of hands...  What would you do?  Oh yeah, small blind was a bluffer and had folded one hand before the flop and maybe 2 after the flop and one at the river during final betting. So, I should have known he wouldn't fold...

I think i would have folded that hand Katt,even if he was bluffing before. I usually do not play A with small kicker,all you could hope for with your hand is small straight or if real lucky,more A's. I've played those kind of hands and went down in flames.

Firstly, seeing as you were under the gun Katt, I would have folded that hand straight away.  Being under the gun puts you in a very vulnerable position.  The only time I come out with all guns blazing in that position is with AA.  I don't know at which point you were all in so I don't know whether you raised preflop or called his fishy all in when he had hit his flush.

 

Secondly, it is what it is i.e. Ace rag unsuited and I likely would have folded the hand in any position unless I was unraised small or big blind.

 

With fish like your opponent, they will keep suited cards no matter what they are and you won't get them off the hand unless there is no possibility that they can make the flush.  In this case he hit it on the turn and you were doomed.

Thank you, you are both so right... Pre flop I just called the BB, no one had raised, then I went all in after the flop when I had the two pair Aces and Kings, but I did not considered carefully that he might have the suited hearts in his hand, my reaction and bet were based on his previous behavior and hands revealed and I should know by now not to play a hand based on anything but the hand in play. But then I am pretty much of a Kattfish myself... LOL

 

On a good note, I played in a play money game after this flaming nosedive into oblivion. It was a great game with all of us using chat and sharing laughs in a $35000 play money SitnGo... It was the friendliest game I have played in, heck we were saying I'm sorry for taking each other's money... but, sad as I was to see each of them go, I did see EACH of them go eventually and won $25000 in play money... It may be play money, but I can use it to win real money so, whoopee and hooray!

Nice win on the play money table Katt.  It is reassuring when you find some friendly players and you get a good game even if it is play money.
