one..i have been looking for "other things" so often lately, i forgot to notice the biggest fundamental..."if you have more equity than players, RAISE!" and, this was it. 3 players, and i likely have 33%+. thanks. i totally missed that one, and thought i was jamming with Ahi and a non-made hand when definitely behind. darn it.
two..thanks for the explanation. i need to remind myself of these things often...or, as you see, i will get stuck asking the same (basic) questions over and over. i feel i protect well because i am always looking for reasons to do so. but, when no one ahead of me bets, its hard to make them play incorrectly, and thats the frustrating part. its like live low stakes LHE. no one raises, but no one folds, either.
again, pstove will help me some more in figuring how much to open up in these situations. when its 4way, i only need more than 25% to ram the shit out of it pf. and, 3way, 33%. the question, again, is will they allow it by raising also. and, when they do, how tight is THEIR raising range. obv, things you guys cant answer. i'm just talking to myself right now.
the losing 67% of the time, and the idea you keep mentioning in your vid review thread is: "it only has to work 1 in 10 to be profitable." we/i keep losing sight of that. i feel that if i lose 3/5 times, i am sucking. the truth is i may still be making money in those situations...lol.
i have already started playing complete trash in family pots from the SB. its hard to make myself do it, but i do see the odds i am getting.
however, if i complete, and BB raises, can i really fold T6o when it comes back around still as a family pot? i suppose my odds arent really as good because now its 9:1-11:1 instead of 13+:1. but, i also have reason to believe somebody has something, too. that should further devalue my trash a bit, yes?
ps, didnt play last night. i will give a numbers summary of the month in a week or so. but, if things dont go all to hell, it'll still be up a good bit. these basic questions are to keep hammering concepts into my head so i dont forget, as i obviously do forget...lol. i just tend to work on fancier concepts at the expense of some of the basics at times.
