Re: Australian (and NZ) Casino discussion (except for Crown Casino)

Yeah, her shove was for about $75 on the river. I called for about $65.

But yeah, my turn bet is epic lulz looking back at it now :D

It should have been in on the turn, she was insta-calling the whole way down, so I stopped for a second and thought about the possibility of her having K/K, but I'm just glad I won the pot.

There's no way I'd be calling a re-raise with K/10, so when the K flopped and she was so quick to call down every street... which is why I tanked for a little bit, then I just realised I had to call, it was that simple, if she has KK then good luck to her.

Re: Australian (and NZ) Casino discussion (except for Crown Casino)

Getting AA is always nice, then actually winning a big pot with it is quite good.

I'm in the SB, FC in the BB, UTG limps, UTG +1 limps, guy in EP limps, girl next to act makes it $13, it folds around to me in the SB and I make it $41 to go, BB folds, folds around to the original raiser who calls.

Flop comes down K/6/8, I lead out for $26, she calls.

Turn comes 7.

I lead out for $20, she calls.

River comes 6.

I check, she shoves and I tank call, she flips over K/10hh. Ship it.
IMO the important thing here is not giving your opponent implied odds. On the flop and turn, you have basically given your opponent the opportunity to play perfect poker - she calls your tiny bets with outs against you and then you check the river allowing her to bet if she hit or check behind otherwise (you are pretty fortunate that she donked off her stack for you). If the river hadn't paired the board, you would have no idea if she had managed to hit her 2nd pair or not. If a Q J or T had come on the river you would be in a really tricky spot. It's even tough for you to fold if the K pairs, as she could still have a smaller pair.

On the flop the pot was about 85, and she had 110 behind. I would bet at least 50 on the flop and the rest on the turn. It forces her to make a bad call or fold with all of her 1 pair hands.

Why tank call for $75 into $190 there? Almost the perfect board with the low card pairing up.

Re: Australian (and NZ) Casino discussion (except for Crown Casino)

Went last night again for ~4 hours.

Ended up with a slight winning session (around $70) or so, which included laying down a set of 7's on an A/8/7 all heart board after the flop had been raised and re-raised.

I figured I was relying on the board pairing, and the guy who took it down (on the flop) ended up showing the second nut flush.

It's just the way it played out and the way she called me re-raise pre-flop, I really did for a second put her on KK.

If anyone wants to make extremely easy money playing poker, spend the money to fly to the Gold Coast and play at Jupiters.

The standard of play is staggeringly bad.
O rly?

I'm in short term retirement/suspending myself indefinitely from cas poker til I win something in any form of gambling.

Last few months have been terrible bankroll management wise...

Went into skycity tonight to play 1/2. Had been running good online so was hoping it would translate too live. Bought in for 80, first hand in the BB I see AQo, 3 limpers and I raise to 12 get 1 caller. Flop K83r perfect for a cbet of 15 which gets called. Turn Q and checked through, river Ace and I vbet 25 and get called by AJ.

Next hand in sb I see 89o, limped pot and flop is Q99 and it gets checked through. Turn is an ace, I bet 5 and get 3 callers. River bricks and I vbet 20, young guy angleshoots a shove but just calls and I scoop 2 nice pots straight up.

Lay low for a while, 2 English guys sit down and donate at least 500 between them but not to me apart from a $50 pot my KT v A4 on K45 board. Same guy builds a massive $400 stack from 50 soon after. Started the greatest table I had ever played on.

They left, and I pick up AJcc in the CO. Tight reg isolates a limper to my right raising to 11, I flat (not sure) as do 2 others. Flop 4A5cc, sexy, checked to me and I bet 15, limper calls. Turn is a 5, I bet 20, he snap shoves all in 69 more. I tank call, he was an ok player overvaluing Ace type hands. He shows 43o and I fade a few outs. I cash out for 250, run good does translate online to live.

Played at Skycity last night. $95 tournament. 60 runners with $4.5k over top 10.

Early on had JJ, raised 2.5BB (2 callers) as hand before (AQ) went 3xBBs and everyone folded. Flop came J-10-8. I checked as did the other 2. Turn comes the dreadful 9. I know I'm behind now. We all checked again. River was nothing. One of the callers bets out 2k, I fold, other guy calls. Player that bet out 2k had a pair (of tens) and the caller had the straight 7 through to J.

How should I have played that hand? Does betting the flop, get both out? Probably the player with the pair of Tens, but the other player had K7, so may have been hard to get them off?

Knocked my mate out fairly early when my pockets 3s hit the flop as did his KJ. I think the flop was J-3-7. He bets $600, guy with AQ folds and I re-raised to $1800, its all in for him to call, he does. The look on his face was priceless :D

Not long after the first break I get AJ, can't remember the position but I opened the betting, to I think 3xBB. Only the one caller. Flop is J-J-4. He checks, I follow. Turn = Ace. He checks, I follow again. River is the final J. He says "all-in". I look at him like, did you just say that? I obviously call and he shows the Ace. I flip over the Jack and become one of the chip leaders.

From there, it was all pretty normal, knocked a few more out, but as the final table approached, I was one of the short-stacks and ended up being blinded out when my 10-2 went up against 9-9.

Bet so you get called by draws. Slow playing a wet board is never good.

In general you should be Cbetting always when you hit a flop like that. A player with a naked gutshot like a 7 or Q with no pair should probably fold. A player with the OESD or pair plus gutshot probably won't fold, but that's ok, since you have a lot more equity. It's by no means guaranteed that someone has a 7 or Q on the river after the turn checked through. I would snap call the 2k.

Also, don't change your betsize because they all folded the last hand. Bet exactly the same, and you are just as likely to get callers, because it looks like you are opening light.

Fine if the stacks are small, but if the stacks are a bit deeper you have to bet somewhere to get value from aces and worse jacks.

FWIW, I came 8th. So doubled my money. Yeah, everyone on the table said I should have showed the Ace first. :p

Thanks for the feedback :thumbsu:

Yeah, checking on that board is dreadful.

At least if you bet - only a 9 will call you (well, a 7 or Q should fold depending on the size of the bet), and then at least you're making him pay to hit, not giving him a free card.

What is your thought process on the check? Are you checking to hope that they bet so you can raise over the top?

On that sort of board checking there is probably the last thing i would want to do. Id be betting my standard c bet of 70% of the pot and see how it goes from there. Hands they can call with are a pretty small range - Q9 1010 99 88 A9 (thats ?? call tho) and maybe some AJ KJ and A10 but thats the bottom of there calling range. By checking it you are allowing the donks who play hands like Q8 pre or something along those lines from getting there free card to tid.

If he calls on a draw then great your getting some great value and can still get away from your hand if the card you dont want comes down. If the card had been a rag would you have bet the turn? Less likely to get a draw call you on the turn so you are losing a fair bit of +ev there

Bet it out 100% of the time there and if you run up against Q9 so be it but dont give them the chance for a free card....

I'm heading over to Adelaide with some mates for the Queens birthday long weekend in June and was thinking squeezing in some poker at Skycity while there, either on the Thursday or Sunday night. Is there many cash game tables running on these nights and if so what are the main ones that get up?

At this stage tournament is out of the question, Thursday night is a ladies night tournament while the Sunday poker zone challenge ($300/$40) is a little bit outside my budget at the moment, I was looking to take around $600 to play with. If any Adelaide regulars could let me know it would be much appreciated. :thumbsu:

hey mate...im doing the opposite and heading over to melbourne that weekend..
I havnt been to the cas for about a month, but things shouldnt have changed to much.
I havnt been to a Thursday since before these Ladies Tournaments have started, but I think you will find 2/3 will have 1-3 tables running, along with 1/2 having 1-3 tables running..
there will also be 5/5, and 4/8 limit on request.
poker starts at 7 and runs til 3.30?
2/3 is usually filled with lots of good regulars with plenty of gamble in them.
Thursdays are generally fairly busy for a week night, and you should get a few drunk guys who have been out on the town for the Thursday.

Cheers, it sounds like it is worth the extra effort, I would of hated to get over there only to find 1 table of 1/2 running. I will post on the outcome once I get back to Melbourne.

Should probably be hitting the Star City tables before noon tomorrow.

And I did buy a ticket to the Swans v Bulldogs. Should be a great game for various reasons: Bazza, Roos, Kirk, not to mention chance of a home final for the Swans.

Played 4 hours at Star City Sydney earlier. Sure some things are different to Melbourne, but I don't really have any complaints. Oh apart from it being rather cold. Played 1/2, went from 100 to 250 but left with only 51. Lost two hands aipf: TT < 99 (river) and AK < TT. Only interesting hand was one that was raised to 12 pre, I call the extra 10 with 85o. Flop A64dd, checks to me, I bet 15 with the nuts obv, pfr folds, old guy calls. Turn 7d, he check shoves about 50. I'm thinking he has A7 at best, I call with made straight and OESFD if I needed it. He had not much, something like 43o!

Adelaide Poker Championships coming up from September 25ish through to about October 3rd.

As well as the usual events you see in these championships, a PLO freezeout, a NLHE terminator and the like, two "industry" events are being held, a $265 NLHE freezeout and a $50 PLO rebuy. Because I work for APL, I qualify for the events working in the industry. So me and a few other croupiers from Burswood are heading over for the championships at the end of the Grand Final...

Anyone down there playing those events?
