Oh, what a feeling!

Last night I played another tavern poker tournament.

At one point, I raised with A-J.

Flop: A-A-J.

But wait, it gets better!

I made a small bet and got four callers!

But wait, it gets better!

Turn: the final ace. I think I probably have this locked up.

But wait, it gets better!

I made a bigger bet. Three callers!

But wait, it gets better!

Some irrelevant card on the river. I move all in. TWO CALLERS!

Both were shorter stacks than mine, so a double knockout. And I became monster chip leader.

It's all skill, ya know. You have to practice for many years to learn how to flop a full house, and improve it to quads.

PokerNews article #64

Another batch of angle-shooters, and how to foil their evil intentions.

http://www.pokernews.com/strategy/still-more-angle-shooters-and-how-to-defeat-them-21511.htm

Are there other angle-shooting techniques that I have not covered in these two articles? I have about 3 more, but not enough for another full article. Let me know what I've missed, and maybe I'll get a third compilation out of it.

Hellmuth vs. Negreanu

I never get tired of seeing Phil Hellmuth lose.



"The most weirdly played hand in the history of poker"



Of course, they shouldn't use the word "beat" in the title, since the queens were ahead all the way.
