    How did you come up with 1.5x for the ICM adjustment. ?

    I'm not folding here. I think it is way too weak. He could have a pure bluff, 98 for a semi bluff, an A with a bad kicker which you beat all of these. He could have a set or two pair which...

    Athenian,

    Thanks for looking at this.

    Your calculation shows this is a positive cEV situation for sure, and if it wasn't for ICM considerations I would jam this every time and be completely...

    No fear of busting here, but I just think 29BB are too much to jam here, Although I am sure it is positive EV to jam, I was wondering if you could do better by calling and evaluating the flop. ...

    JJ a couple questions for you.

    What do you think about just calling preflop and then trying to get some value if you hit and getting away if you don't and there is a lot of action on the flop ?...

    Against the villain as described I think this is an easy call. I also think your line looks like you cbet and then gave up, inducing the LAG to bluff.

    Interesting spot.

    I definitely do not fold here, you likely have the best hand.

    I think you need to put in a raise and due to stack sizes I probably just rip it in. It seems like if you...

    I call this, based on the super tight range Ginger gives him you are actually 56%. You are blocking a lot of the combinations of AA, KK and AK.

    I actually think the range would be wider than...

    I would jam this preflop.......most likely result is picking up 1000 variance free chips if everyone folds. If you get a caller you are probably 50% with a lot of dead money in the pot. Both are...

    I am not folding here, there are two many semi bluffs in his range. I would call with the plan of calling down unless a club or a card that completes the straight comes.

    I would like to meet you in person. Didn't realize you were from the same area. I am playing the main on Saturday. I will email you my phone number and you can text me on Saturday.
  20. $360 Chicago Poker Classic....bad run out

    Thoughts on the following would be appreciated:

    H: ATo
    S: 16k
    B: 100/200/25
    P: Button

    Unless this is a satellite, I get this in for sure. If both villains are playing top 10% of hands which may be likely you are about 49% for 2 to 1 pot odds, too good to pass up.

    In my opinion, I think you can call the flop instead of raising and then raise or bet on the turn and then bet on the river. The only cards I am worried about are the K and the J. With the...
