Anyone play texas holdem?

Postby MargeC » Wed Jul 18, 2007 5:18 pm

I love it. I'm back on Party Poker which has quite bad blind structures but the players are awful. Here I am at the end of a sit n go (mini 6 person tournament), I'm 'slimfandango'. Everyone has a low 'M' (the stacksize of chips relative to the blinds (forced bets from 2 players, on rotation). You have to know when to move with two good cards, you cannot really afford to call and miss. Do this twice and you're out. I made (maybe) a questionable call against a solid player, ended up on my butt, but managed to come back. This is into the action about 40 minutes in, 3 players left, 2 positions pay. It was pretty exciting :). At the end, mostly about the info you gathered on how your opponent plays paying off. This guy is viewing my limping on the button (instead of raising) as weakness, thus the frequent 'all ins'. He goes all in with big hands also, which is great play (keeps me guessing). I get very lucky with QT against QQ, I have about 12 percent chance of winning, preflop.
The all in at the end (equal stacked) by him with 22 is very bad play. I had to call with a good pocket pair, although I based this decision mostly on how long it took him to make the move, about 6 seconds, which is often a move done on 'shaky ground'. Had it been 2 seconds I may not have called.

I don't care for it myself-- too much is sheer luck, not skill.

Give me straight draw 5-card poker.

They can't be worse than me :oops: (but I try)

I've being playing a wee bit online with William Hill (as my bro uses them) they've just started a Low Limit Table for players who find the game a little daunting and helps me learn using real money (pennies really) but saves me being silly and lose a huge amount. Nothing at all like you play. My bro has been really lucky, I do really like poker but wish I could concentrate more :confused:

I've been watching PartyPoker late on the telly, Jimmy White was playing last night, he's good for being a snooker player. :tongue:

I love draw, especially lowball A-5 or 2-7

Poker (holdem included) includes some luck, however the skill involved is substantial. A better player will earn more than a worse player. A good player will easily earn money over the medium and long term, a poor player will probably lose money over the medium/long term. There are so many poor players making frequent mistakes that even a mediocre player will have a significant and useable skill edge over them. This is why the same professionals are at the top of the world rankings YEAR ON YEAR and that the best professionals almost never undergo a losing year. If the game was dominated by luck over skill, this could not possibly be the case.
When I play, I play a very risk-averse style, even in cash games. When I call a large raise or make a large bet, I am doing so knowing that my own hand is strong, perhaps the best hand possible, but normally having a decent amount of historic or situational knowledge that allows me to narrow my opponent down to a small range of holdings.
In the hands I showed, this is a quite rare situation where all of the players mostly have small stacks relative to the blinds. At the end, for example, the big blind is 600 chips, each player has about 6000 chips. If you see the flop (600) call a bet on the turn (600) and the river (600). You have lost about 1/3 of your stack right there! He could have anything, hit anything, and if you keep folding preflop with mediocre hands you lose one tenth of your stack right there!

The funny thing is though that his entire stack went in with a very poor holding, that is at very best 50 50 against any other holding. I would never have made this move here 'out of position' for my whole stack when stacks were even. I also knew to call with my 88 because any hand that was beating me was not played out in this way. So the game was decided on skill in the end........

I have played 100 sit n goes on Party this month, First and second positions pay (60%/40%). My results are:

Did not cash: 25
First: 32
Second: 43

The luck factor begins to be outbalanced pretty quickly.

It won't hurt to rely on both but I think skills come in handy after one runs out of luck. :biggrin:

I don't actually play anymore, only when I meet up with one of my very old and dear friend we get a chance to play. When you get a hang of the basics, practice/play as often as you can. Eventually you will develop your own skill or technique. :juggle: Good luck!

I've decided, my friend bill is not interested in teaching me poker anymore as I'm so sh*t at it. I'll just stick to going to the Casino once a month with my mate Ronny, she's such a scream and we have a good laugh at other peoples expense :lol: :biggrin:

Some time ago, I tried to learn from an online site. It seemed fairly hard to learn, but I followed some basic rules I found and won my first "tournament" big time! It was also my last time.
