BAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYNNEEE

Waffles, I am no longer speaking to you after this. You are a waste of flesh in my opinion, and a worthless poker player. I have no need or desire to talk with you about poker because you are a bad player who has nothing to offer to a conversation about poker. You and Carmen are perfect buddies, both worthless cunts in my opinion. I will still read your blog though because I take pleasure in your constant losing ways......

I can not tell you how this made me feel.. I cried.. I doubted.. I almost gave up poker. I had to ask Carmen is she really was a cunt.. In the end I will trudge through and.. *sniff* survive..

I had an interesting hand with Bayne last night in the donkeyment and I think Don would like how I played it but we will see..

The setup. I have 30K in chips and look down and see a T9h. I call one limpers bet and then Big Bad Bayne comes out firing for 3K more. So with the 800 blinds.. the pot was 6K and I have to call off 3K.

Here is my thinking. Bayne is saying "Hey I got two big pockets and I want you gone".. So while the expense of the hand is high I have him on a range that is probably AA-JJ.. maybe AK but doubtful. He has 10K behind. So I have a shot at adding 50% to my already large stack. It costs me something to call.. but I can easily fold if I miss.. if I flop hard I can stack him. Knowing what your opponent has is A BIG ADVANTAGE.

So the flop comes T97. Best flop ever. I check into Bayne knowing he has to Jam with over cards and he obliges. I call and he rivers a K. So I get him to commit all of his stack with about 20% chance to win. I would have rather a straight or flush flopped but that is neither here or there.. SO any comments?

Personally I think this is a good deep stack poker type hand and would do it again.

If you feel confident enough in what your opponent has, then it's a solid play. As long as you have the chips to make a play like that, it's a big opportunity to double up. I've done this before in the cash games, I had someone limp UTG, I raised in the BB, he then re-raised, so I put him on aces, I flopped a set with my queens, and I ended up stacking him after a check-raise, because I knew what he had.

Good play, imo.

That's one of the plays I just love, especially HU. If you can put your opponent on a very narrow range, the move pays off with your opponent's whole stack if you hit hard, if not, you can always fold on the flop.

Given your stack in that spot, my opinion is: right play, wrong result...

I agree with this, but from what you write it does not sound as a deep stack. If the blinds are 400-800 neither of you are deep and he has only 10K (13K?) in his stack which sounds shallow to me. Ok, he can not hurt you much since you hav 30K but otherwise only his stack size matters when determining odds.

Maybe I missed it (and I read it 3 times) but given I don't know what you hold (but I can guess 10-8) and I figure the he had Q-10?

-confused-

I obviously am missing what you had but hearing he got a River K, was the turn a 10 and he had pocket Qs?

Flop gave me two pair. All Baynes money went in and the river gave him a set of Kings.

I think we can all see the lesson here for waffles is "Stay away from Bayne's pots"

Waffles did commit 1/6 of his stack pre-flop I committed 1/3 of mine. My opinion is I need to have as many chips as waffles for him to consider making the call.

It was more like 1/10th. Busting you is worth 1/3 more.
