Where the **** have I been?Is this thread a joke?Like seriously... I don't even know where to begin. Guys like screech, Actuary, Wang, DannyG, PP24, etc are what make this forum such a great resource for improving your poker game, and the OP is telling them that his play is over their heads.This has to be a joke.OP, you need to read ANY thread started in the Limit forum, Micro Limit forum, No Limit forum, Shorthanded forum, Tournament forum, Omaha forums, Stud forums, etc. Seriously. The only threads that get flamed are the ones that are clearly a pathetic attempt to stroke ones ego, and boast about some stupid play that was correct once, and probably incorrect in the long term, etc.For the sake of the Strat forums, OP, just leave. We are clearly too stupid for you.- Zach

Poker 101 You are in position, you flop a setVillain bets out, you raise, he 3-bets.At this point you have 2 options. A) You can call and raise him up on the turnB ) You can cap the flop because you feel he will lead the turn even if you do.Its kind of like when you raise preflop with AK and the bb calls.The flop comes down Axx. Its not difficult to play, its not exciting and even a losing player would struggle to botch it up.Why is it that everyone who comes out of no where on these forums to post some 40/80 or 100/200 hand always thinks they are hot ****. The hand was simple, no need to overanalyze it with this "he thinks i think that he thinks" mumbo jumbo.

What i was really looking for is whether or not you think he would have lead out on the turn if i 4 bet the flop. This is the only part where the way he percieved me would be of importance. Thanks
Why are you certain he wouldn't put in a fifth bet, but would rather call and lead the turn? Did you think about that? Or were you relatively certain he'd choose to donk bet the turn no matter what came off?Everyone who said anything nice about Wang:1) Thank you. You warm my hearts. Actually, that's probably the whiskey, but I'm in a sentimental mood.2) Thank you for thinking I'm kinda funny, sometimes, even though I'm probably not3) I give horrible poker advice. Anyone who listens to anything I say is surely going to end up a losing player, unless he plays with me consistently.

I think the best advice for the OP would be to move down to the 2/4 live. Online, maybe .50/1 would be more appropriate.

Wang,I've never read a strategy related post by you that wasn't incredibly deep and well thought out. You give fantastic advice. The interesting part is that the drunker you are, the better it is though... :club:

Are you sure that YOU aren't incredibly drunk when you read my strategy posts? Maybe you should look in the mirror before you start carelessly hurling about compliments, all willy-nilly and such.Haha, I love being drunk, like, all the damn time....

i had to get my point across, the first thing you said was something along the lines that my post was a joke or comical nonsense.....whatever it was....that is some B.S. to start a post in which you supposedly are going to provide advice on....i left out the end of your post when i quoted it because that is the only part i was referring to.....whether or not you gave advice after that fact is irrelavant.... But i do aggree with the advice you gave however...lolTo get more into my actual topic of this thread. On the flop i wasnt totally sure that he had a pair or not, thats what makes this an easy decision for me not to 4 bet him. If i 4 bet him and he doesnt have a pair i am most certainly not going to get him to lead out on the turn. I was also merely looking for alternate plays to my own, you know maybe something off the wall that i hadnt thought of. Often, these off the wall ideas are what can greatly improve my game. I respect your advice and that which you have given others in this forum. It is evident by the posters in this thread that many have reaped the benefits. The only aspect that i took issue with is your first reply as i already stated. Back to strategy....even if i had known on the flop that he had top pair, i probably still wouldn't have raised him again.....this decision based solely on the assumption that he would shut down if i put another raise in on the flop....i dont really see how he could think his jack was good if i 4 bet him.... Do you think he would have still lead out on the turn, or another question would be to you think he would have capped it on the flop?
If you see a kid in a casino who doesnt look 21, dont hate on him and have him carded just because he is the one raking in all your chips.

Dude, you crack me up... NH.As for the hand OP, just read Poker 101 by pokerplayer24 a few posts up. It summarizes it pretty well.

Lol actually, my friend always says "Know your role, or shut your hole!"I think that is more appropriate in this case.
