Foucault82 commented on What’s Your Play? Ran Out a Straight
Thanks for the comment, nC. Couple of questions/comments for you: 1. It's dangerous to assume that a good player will have the kind of sizing tell you assume here. Most good players aren't going to do something as blatant as betting big when they miss ...

Foucault82 commented on Mailbag: Getting Away From Hands
If you think it's the best way to get value from Ax, that's fine, but that should be your reasoning for doing it. Personally I think just calling down (possibly folding to future barrels depending on reads) and betting when checked to tends to be ...

Foucault82 commented on Poker Strategy With Andrew Brokos: Playing It Safe
Well said, and thanks for the kind words about the podcast. Tommy Angelo has some good bankroll-related advice in Elements of Poker. He says that regardless of what you have in your theoretical bankroll, what you have in your pocket also influences how risk-averse you're ...

Good catch. That Ace should be a spade. I'll see if I can let the folks at CP know. Thanks.

Foucault82 commented on Semi-Bluffing the River
Yeah I'd be shocked if that rule applied to anyone other than the last player to act, precisely because otherwise it would enable you to know that your opponent didn't have the nuts any time he checked the river to you.

Foucault82 commented on Semi-Bluffing the River
Very good point. The games that I play in are generally time games or have a capped rake, which usually by the time you're trying to bluff someone off of a chop that cap has already been reached. Games with uncapped rake are extremely difficult ...

Foucault82 commented on What’s Your Play? Bad Runout for an Overpair
Thanks for the kind words. I have to quibble with this though: "When i said check folding is the safest I meant in the simplest of terms, you cant lose what you dont put in." If you have the opportunity to make a bluff with ...

Foucault82 commented on What’s Your Play? Bad Runout for an Overpair
Thanks for the comment. Couple of questions: "Check folding is the safest play obviously" Safest in what sense? "Turning your jacks into a bluff I think can only be done by a check raise" Why? What makes you so sure someone will bet the river ...
