Well, I would say the pre flop call to a 4,5x BB raise is bad with 84h, but the rest is standard. You just told him the truth, and the guy was obviously retarded.

I really like how you played the hand post-flop, i mean you extracted a lot of value Blink

Still i don't like at all that you played that hand in the first place, this time it had a happy end but in time it's -EV...

Yeah thats kinda my point macubas, you can use the negative percentage with hands to you advantage too if you're paying enough attention. Obviously I hadn't payed attention here, it was only the 3rd hand and I'd already had a double up. Cool

There is more to come. In fact the hand before that where I got a double up was even worse lol.

I gotta say I can't even call with hands like this, but visiskas surely needed to learn a lesson after betting on chasing the flush. I mean you stayed with pure poop, but at least you hit on the flop.

Then as you state, the hand before that doubled you up was worse. Wow! I guess I need to start playing more of the hands I fold. There are times I wish I would have stayed, but I always tell myself I did the right thing to fold and wait for the better hands then, not hit poop. So it look's like you fare well with those hands.

Oh I didn't see the guy had a flush draw, my bad. He wasn't as retarded as I thought, but he was bad anyways Big Smile Especially for calling the shove on the river. Shock

Greenmohave --> Depends how deep you are. In my opinion, the deeper you are the more you can afford to see flops and play post flop hoping to hit the nuts and get paid. When I play cash games I usually try to have a loose image, raise a lot pre flop but I'm actually tight post flop. Knowing when to c-bet and when to not c-bet is very important though, cause when you're involved in a lot of pots some people will play back at you with very marginal hands, even when they hit nothing. I don't raise or limp hands like 84s though, 57s yeah but not 84. It's almost impossible to hit the nuts with a hand like 106s, and when you're deep stack (100 BB+), what you want is the nuts. And you can usually extract more value with straights, cause possible flushes scare people a lot.

i like to play hands that are suited or connected, but perferably both at once Big Smile

implied odds are the best in low stake games, almost always get paid

Hi guys!!

The hand is the perfect example of how to play post flop. Nice work. I must tell that i hardly call with 84s vs a 4.5 BB raise.

In any way, great hand. And great fish calling in turn!!!!

Ok, silly call in silly season, just to see the action being chipleader at the table. Nothing wrong with that. But the way you played you only won because your oponent was a big donk, who doesnt know the difference betwen na Ace and a deuce. He bets all in a flush draw after the turn! Crazy!!! But if it happens that he had Ax and got a 2nd pairo n that river, you would be showing that here because you knew everyone would ask “where the hell did you had your head when you played this way?”

that s why i never win, i always folded the 84

but on the freerolls it s often a silly hand that wins when there several hands all in.

as my friend often says : before the flop everybody can win the hand, you just need a good hi

Sorry but this just typifies the way online poker is going. Its now any two cards pre flop, hope to hit big.

You see it in every game, people calling with utter garbage irrespective of what the bet is, the players table image etc.. Its simply a case of "I must see the flop"

There is no reason whatosever to justify calling that pre flop raise with 84.

Yes you got lucky, but its not good play. In fact its horrific. Its not gut instinct. Its not using poker logic, its out and out gambling.

Online poker is a joke now. Full of idiots who can't lay down any two cards because they hit once or twice, get lucky and think they are semi pros..

The hand above is a typical example of how bad people play online. Two player too dumb to fold hands, and now even at higher stakes on PS, you see it all the time. Its utterly ridiculous, and its making online poker an absolute joke.

Its true what they say about Pokerstars.. The more stupid you are, the more they reward you....

Yes you're right I am absolutely retarded, and I play hands like 84 s everytime I get them. Or not, and you are the retard for NEVER playing those hands. They do win. This is proof. I actually had pretty decent odds. The blinds were small. I was big stack. In position. He was more of a donk than me. I was only ever seeing the flop until I hit so well. More reasons to call than fold.

------------
As for you saying online poker is a ridiculous disgrace. Maybe its just evolution. People always do seem to have a problem with evolution. Especially the 'more mature' folk.

I think a fols is better in this case. You have enough time to wait for a better hand or situation. Why risking so much if you know you have the second best hand here Big Smile

Whilst I do agree that calling with bad starting hands can work out if you are big stacked and in position, I do not agree with your 8 4 call for several reasons. Firstly, although suited the bonus of getting a flush is not so great. Should 3 hearts fall you may find yourself against a higher flush chaser, which isn't fantastic or a higher made flush, which would be awful and hard to fold without losing a lot of chips. Suited connectors are entirely different. Straights are more likely to bankrupt your opponent safely. 8 and 4 are too far apart to be worth calling and any 5 6 and 7 flop wouldn't get action. A gutshot straight draw is also a horrible flop that could bleed you of chips. Hitting a single pair would be no good so the only good hand for you is one like this and even then it's not unbreakable. Finally the raise preflop was a decent raise and if you continually called with these hands you would soon throw away your chip lead. every hand can win but you're incorrect about your odds.

I hope for your sake you were just flaming the previous poster for writing such a post.

Call with 84 is not good imo i wouldn't do it anyways. Betting with t9d in MP doesn't make that much sense aswell but ok. Dude was in a draw which was what he was hoping to i guess .. he did wrong in betting OOP .. i see lots of donks whenever an A comes.. they represent it like 80% of the time.. dunno why it doesn't payoff.

I mean he couldn't be doing that because of the draw.. if your on a draw you check-raise all in and pray or check-call , you can always check-min raise just to get a read on him tho. Never bet OOP lol.. you want to put as less chips in the pot as possible.. to make the turn cheap.. so you get good pot odds on calling and you can see the extra card cheap. That or shove and spin for it like isildur does baller style.
84 call that will lose you alot of money in the long run .. well played postflop.. standard.. very nice good luck that you were playing Sean Penn on "I AM SAM" retarded-like.

I know this. But even 7 2 has its day. Thats what I'm saying. Not 'bla-bla-bla the better move was.... because 90% of the time bla-bla-bla.' Calling was obviously the better move I won didn't I.

this is just ridiculous play by a muppet who then trys to justify it by claiming he was big stack! also how did you know he didnt have 2 pair or trips??

people say but its ok my hand was strong only because it won...but if it lost you would have been shoutin all sorts..
imo its people like you who muck up online poker for people who actually want to play the game instead of gambling on any 2 cards..

think you should really download yourself a starting hands chart..might improve your game a bit!! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap! Aww crap!

Yes if you play any hand enough times it will win. But the wins will probably be small.

Statistically you will also get a lot of bad beats and cold hands with 7 2. It's very easily out-drawn.

Forget the maths if you like. Forget ev blah-blah. If you could count how many chips you've lost playing 6 2, 7 3, 8 4, 9 5, 7 2, 8 3 etc you'd see that this win barely makes a dent in the debt these hands owe you. If you didn't win with them occasionally you'd be in real trouble.
