Nathan ?? How do you stay so disciplined on not going to showdown?? Teach me. I just have a hard time laying down 2nd best ?? its my biggest leak i believe .Hope your doing good with all the new ventures.. Thanks Chris
Certain lines mean certain hands especially with bad or passive players. But moreover, just ask yourself what can you beat. And be honest about it. Yes he is bluffing some of the time. Yes he is retardedly "value betting" bottom pair some of the time. Don't worry about those as they don't happen nearly as often as you might think. If you can't find more than a couple legit hands that he could have, that you beat, then find the fold button because you like money and winning at poker.
I should add, I'm talking about when you are facing a legit bet. If you are getting like 8 to 1, obv a call with Ace high is correct a lot of the time.
Thanks Nathan, for the response.You have been a great help in the past reading your comments and responding to us so fast on questions.I feel that i am a tight player but damn just hate folding top pr top kicker// but like you said more times than not they have the hand when they are betting huge..What do you do to those fish that minbet minbet min bet every street??? it seems its when they have 2nd or low pr on the board.Should you call them down if you have two overcards to the flop and trn?? Chris
Yup np. When fish minbet I just ignore it and cbet most of the time. If its a really bad board, like 986 with a flush draw and I have AK I just call the minbets.
Are you taking a holiday or playing a lot live?
Haven't played that much in January. Majority has been on other sites. I don't play live.
