gratz on 2 fts in 1 day-- not easy-- in the first one- A6 is a great hand to steal the bb- increasing your stack by 15%- yet with th utg limper and the bb yet to act- a min raise here forces you to play post flop poker - utg not folding- with less than great holdings-- u hit ure top - but had kiker issues-- for me this is a shuv or fold ---a shuv prob gets a fold from the limper and a 24% increase in stack--

in the 2nd one- u played it it perfect-imo- and numbnutz with the raggy ace - never shudda been in the hand-- again gratz-- gl monk...

Hello monkey... so when we gonna table finally hmmm... I challenged you to come to my home game, me and you, and put up some money, one buy-in, heads up, winner take all....

I did that at table one day a week or so ago when you stoped by and railed me, yet again... but you won't do that....

Yer sceert of old dump bird, thats all I can figure.

You had your chance. Offer withdrawn, until such time as I feel like making that again.

thanks, your right i only bet bb on flop aswell. I prob should've raised more pre and shoved on the flop, however i don't think he would have laid his Arag down at any point.
