I'd love to see the player notes that the other players are furiously scribbing down... :club: Hand 1: FineHand 2: I think I fold, your M is in the danger zone <5 but 10 5 off stinksHand 3: ehHand 4: Squeeze play, I like it with the PP - I'm assuming you sucked out with that two outer on the river..and so begins your table imageHand 5: Bubble time but I would have to have a better hand than 34o to resteal; however, from a table image perspective, you've just added another brick to your foundation of LAGHand 6: Trying to capitalize on your image..I probably raise to 2K but someone might call your all-in with a less than stellar hand due to your previous playHand 7: AJ is the devil..Good FoldHand 8: Flop is good for a stop-n-go by villain - you might be good and you have some outs if you're not. Pot is laying 2-1, I like the call.Hand 9: Good play based on your read of villain - I'd feel better about it if they table didn't have you pegged as a LAG.Hand 10: I just complete - you have less fold equity due to your table image and 5 10s is weak headsup.

#2 - overly aggressive imo. i fold it all day.#4 - i'd call and see a flop before pushing. mp1 is loose but what about mp2?#5 - uugghh. your a genius when he folds his steal attempt. you're a donkey when he calls.#8 - :club: #10 - i only complete unless he's virgin tight.

I got a few more comments than usual during this session, I will admit. You know you're playing good poker when everyone is calling you a donkey.2. Yeah. It's marginal.4. Amarillotg: MP2 probably won't be able to overcall the all-in if MP1 decides to call it. The squeeze is a great play because it puts both players to a tough decision and generates a lot of dead money in the pot in the process.5. I am most definitely a donkey. He had to call an extra 6k and he was in steal position... I'm making that play all day as long as I don't think his calling range is extra loose for one reason or another. This was before all the craziness, so I don't think he's calling with KQ there.6. gobears continues to amaze. I didn't think anybody would figure it out, but it's like Howard Lederer is sweating my holecards on FSN.8. He pretty much had the single worst hand possible, but I was proud that I made the call. On top of what gobears said (perfect stop-n-go flop, we probably also have 7-10 outs if we're not ahead anyway, and we're getting 2:1) there should be no one at the table with any doubts about my willingness to call and gamble. Subconsiously, most people back off and start getting more passive and predictable when facing a player like that. 10. I was thinking raise or fold at the time. There were 11 or 12 left at the time, so I was thinking I could apply some final table pressure. I kinda think my table image mandates a fold, though. Losing this one didn't hurt that much, but I sat the next round out and came into the final table short-stacked. What advantage does calling offer?
