Posted by tomboogy: What the hell this is hacker job right there...there are 2 aces of hearts on your monitor this can't be... Also, @wasiebassie: He was playing on fulltilt so your remark is kinda pointless I think
Hello? Been at the booze?
2 A of hearts on 2 different tables. One table is hearts/diamonds.
I don't DO hacker jobs...at least not in Poker. Look again.No worries....

Set mining is gold in deep stack tourns....get AA go for a big raise...no 3-4bb normall raise GO BIG.
Yep. Funny thing is I do the same thing.
It was a real slow blind tourney, 15 min. So "stealing" the blinds in the hope that someone would call a big raise wasn't worth it. I wanted to trap someone hitting their top card, and 20% of the time you're going to get busted by trips, straights, or flushes. This was just the WRONG TIME to fall in the 20% range.
Maybe I'm wrong? I just don't see AA that often, and I've doubled up quite a lot with those in the past. The board often looks safe with trips.
I don't know. Maybe playing AA the way I do is just too risky? Any more advice considering the low blinds situation?
(I think maybe I need HEM to analyse some of these hands?)

All I could say IslandJack is that unless you had a guy at the table consistantly re-raising then the min bet is a bad bet. It lets LP get in a hand with marginal hands and outher PPs etc. Just bet bigger min 3bb (Iv just started raising bigger in EP with bigger hands) my normall bet is 3bb any position now I go 4-5bb EP depending on the table. Eairly stages of a deepstack you can go even bigger as people can get more involved with standard bets. If you have been raised or re-raised just push all in.
