Hi rockyron59!

In league games, I do not want to try to make fancy plays. I need to make solid, basic, standard bets and raises with a very tight range.

Preflop with AK, when it folds to me, I'm going to make a standard raise, which for this blind level is to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper or to 1000. No more, no less.

The flop totally misses me, so I do not want to bet at it. I need to check and fold to any sizable bet from any of the opps. If I did bet, with one opp left with chips, I would make a standard c-bet of 1/2 pot (also, no more, no less). Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent.. something that I absolutely need to avoid doing.

I'm not putting another chip into this pot unless I get an A or K and even if I do, I need to fold to a sizable bet from an opp, since they could have a 9 and have me beat.

When playing league games, I only want to be all-in when I know that my hand will be ahead after all 5 cards are on the board. I cannot take chances as this costs me league points and real $$ from the end of the month leaderboard... in other words, I cannot be bluffing.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

You can either put the hand histories in or use the replayer.. either works. However, if you use the hand history, you might want to put the full hand in, incase there is later action in the hand.

once they're in the replayer, you take the link from the link button and post it into the forum here.. and the hand will show.
