IMPORTANT

Tomorrow is The Very Josie Tournament on Full Tilt.  9:00pm ET.  Please Play!!!!  Yes, it's the second Wednesday of the month.  This month is messed up, but schedule will not be messed up again.

Password is pokerbaby.

As an added bonus, the winner of The Very Josie will receive a "Very Josie Certificate".  It's too cool for words.  All you gotta do is win!  TOMORROW NIGHT.

I played a kinda big tourney last night. 1400 peeps, with 216 in the money.  I played solid for like 3 hours.  Kinda shortstacked as I was heading for the money.  I got dealt QQ.  Guy before me min raises - that along with the blinds and antes made the pot big enough for me.  I jam all in with 5k on top of the raise.

He called with K-J off suit.  (can you believe that?) 

Flop is nice and low...as is turn....river is a KING.  Boo!!!  Out 260th! (218 in the money).

Now that I've been thinking about this hand for a few hours, I've come to the following conclusion.  Had I just called him we would've seen the low flop.  I'd def go all in after the flop, and MAYBE he would've folded with his two overs.  I'd like to think he would.

It's funny how one bet effects the whole game.

Play smart - with me tomorrow night.  I just may overplay queens again!

Don't play that game. Online poker does not work that way, in that the deck is not "pre stacked," like it is in live poker. In online poker, each card is completely randomized prior to it's being dealt. Therefore, the cards would have likely been different had your action been different (i.e. different timing, etc.). You made the right move and got sucked out as a 70/30 favorite.

Hmmm okay Meister - thanks.

I agree with Meister that is BS thinking. I guess you can reduce some variance if you do call pre and jam the all small flop.. but people will still call you.. and your letting a tiny pair off cheap.. your also letting KJ off cheap. If he can not fold he should pay the full price and get bounced.

You can't second guess yourself here and not just because of PM's reasoning. Whether to jam pre or play a stop 'n go is always a woulda, coulda, shoulda situation when you see how the board falls. For instance what happens if you play a Stop 'n go here and A-K hits the flop and he bets, you fold and then somehow you see the next card (some sites rabbit hunt and some show you the board if your opponents shows) and it turns out to be a Q. Then you're kicking your ass for not shoving so you wouldn't have been forced off the hand. Gotta play them as you feel at the time and figure that it was the correct play or your second guess yourself to the poor house.
