I'm Back.

Wordpress just didn't work out for me. Too complicated and since I now have a full-time job, time to go back to to the easy route, blogger.

Anyways, I love and hate the following play:

UTG is typical tag 26/20/3.1. UTG+1 is 43/30/8.2 and my image over 120 hands or so is 25/21/0.8.

So essentially I think my image is one where I'm only 3betting very strong hands. UTG calls me. 66-QQ is the range I put him on. This flop sucks but the only way I win is to fire right?

$0.05/$0.1 Deep No Limit Holdem
6 players
Converted at

UTG shill212 ($19.70)
UTG+1 balboa_rico ($7.33)
CO Hero ($14.20)
BTN evgew4kaplus ($17.50)
SB cL0Ne09 ($14.43)
BB reddog96 ($10.88)

Pre-flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is CO

shill212 raises to $0.35, balboa_rico calls $0.35, Hero raises to $1.50, 3 folds, shill212 calls $1.15, balboa_rico folds

Flop: ($3.50, 2 players)
shill212 checks, Hero bets $2.10, shill212 folds

Final Pot: $3.50

Hero wins $5.37 ( won +$1.77 )
shill212 lost -$1.50
balboa_rico lost -$0.35


  1. For the record, if you put Wordpress on your own server it is simply incredible (literally, millions more features that Blogger) but Blogger is a very good quick and dirty way to get online, especially for just a quick blog. Besides, if you aren't a programmer (which I am) then this is much simpler.

  2. Hi Dubs,

    Do you really need to make this play at 10nl to win ? Surely ABC poker and moreso table selection is your winner at these levels ? I maybe wrong.

    Also do your 10nl opponents really know what your table image and betting ranges are ?

    good to have you back :)
