    First, you got dealt a really awful hand, sorry. But it would be better to set XXX /5:h: 3:s: 2:d: /9:h: 7:d:

    The loose plan is to make 9s-up (or 7s-up) in back and 5s-up (or 3s-up) in the mid...

    One last thing, if you're sure a downswing is attributable to the fall of the cards, keep playing as solidly as you can, and things should turn around. But if you're consistently losing to another...

    Ditto. I think Q / A 4 / 7 8 is demonstrably better. It much more easily allows a back-door to 2-pair in the mid if an Ace doesn't come and the back makes only 2-pair (i.e. you sneak into the land...

    I'd argue that "luck" and "streaks" are illusory, concepts that we overlay on raw experience in an attempt to make sense of random variance. I'd further argue that you should play POFC exactly the...

    I know there's a lot of arrogance in assuming that if someone is playing hands the way I would that they must be playing optimally, but a lot of sets that I used to see people misplay a year or so...
  6. Is POFC so nearly "solved" that it's hard to have much of an edge?

    A couple of months ago I got to the point that I was hardly playing POFC at all. The games had dried up in my circle--the bad players had figured out that they were outclassed, the good players were...

    I would have taken the same line, although I see that a slightly different aggro line gets there, and there is some support for the argument that it is a line worth taking on this board.

    Geez, these are based on super-small sample sizes (what happened on one particular hand), so I don't think this info is all that useful.

    First, these hand histories are damned hard to follow. Any chance you can convert them to the standard FTR hand history format?

    I'd actually take your line since we're in position and all 8 Ks and Qs are live.

    I was talking about this hand:

    The decision is between the play you made and playing the A in the mid and the 9 in back (to make 1 pair). I think your play is by far best because not only have you got the top and mid parts of an...

    I think your play is okay, but since the draw contained a 9 and a spade, the decision is pretty thin. After playing the trips in the mid and the Q on top on the 2nd draw, you have 2 live Qs, 3 live...

    Situation dependent, although almost always if 1 or more of the 3-flush cards is an FL card, I prefer breaking the 3-flush. Still, the shape of the hand as a whole matters. I know we talked in a...

    This is similar to the previous hand. I would have set A:h: / 3:d: / T:d: 9:h: 8:h:. 1st draw play A:c: top and 5:s: mid. 2nd draw play 9:s: low and 4:c: mid (lamenting playing the 5 instead of...

    I'd agree that trip Aces, Kings, or Queens should be set in back, but they aren't worth any points at all unless you improve to a boat or quads. They will do that fairly often, but the real strength...

    I like breaking the 4-flush to set a pair in the mid much more when there are no (or at most 1) FL cards involved. With a hand like T:d: 7:d: 7:s: 6:d: 3:d:, I like X / 7:d: 7:s: / T:d: 6:d: 3:d:. ...

    The line you took--Q:s:/A:s:/A:h:K:h:T:h:--is perfectly reasonable, but I think a strong case can be made for K:h:Q:s:/A:s:A:h:/T:h:. You give up the very unlikely chance for a royal in back and the...
