Hi. I found myself playing on the same table as DaWarsaw ( team online) and he eventually knocked me out.I was playing quite aggressively and i thought he might be opening a bit loose against me so I felt that i was ahead on the flop and tried a semi-bluff check-raise but got unlucky on the river. how do you evaluate my play and his play? maybe i should have folded pre flop after the 4bet or just play it safe n fold on the flop? how do you play against a pro? thank you

Funny I was just thinking about how to play that same scenario this morning. You don't wanna go all in preflop with JJ cos A, K, Q always calls and hits. Bet too low and theres a K or A on the flop which is scary. Do you just call to see a flop? No you don't want the blinds to call and hit low trips against u on the flop.

Have played against u a couple of times nitish I like your style. I'll be watching this thread too for tips. Good luck!
How deep 50bb+ flatting 4bet oop - Sat Jul 21, 2012, 11:41 PM

Looking at this hand the btn has a similar stack size to you.

Ok - I don't what stage of the tournament this is but your 3bet is nearly 10% of your stack and you should be comfortable at 50-60bb no big tournament decisions?

The btn just chipped over a min open raise and you 3bet nothing too much - good.

Now flatting the 4bet oop - you don't have enough money behind to take this to later streets.

Shoving pre is a flip. Never call a 4bet oop with your stack on the line, with 2 pot size bets behind.

Hindsight - yes. Unfortunately I would have done a big 3bet and folded to the shove.

During the WBCOOP series, there were all those PokerStars pros who were participating, and so before the series started I decided that if I wound up at the same table as one of them, I was going to just stick to playing AA.

Then one day, I wound up at the same table as both Andre Akkari (aakari - Team PokerStars) and Richard Veenman (tzen1 - Team Online), got dealt AA ... and wound up folding those too ... bwahahaha! lol so lame, but after watching them play for over an hour, I guess I just didn't feel ready.

I blogged about it in my February Blog: http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/for...peed)&p=339822

So that's awesome that you gave the hand a shot ... hopefully next time your JJs'll hold

I would have done the same as you,
or I would have pushed all in after the Warsaw player's re raise.
JJ are nice eventhough they weren't connected.
in the situation I would have been in warsaw's player seat,
I would have folded once having seen the flop and your following raise...
(no top or second premium Pair hitted, No further possibilities to hit a set)
the important things is the result...
he gets lucky at the end .. right ?
